At almost 19 Adrian Mole is still concerned about his lunar complexion. He has generously agreed to share the pages of this book with two other well known, if less distinguished writers: Margaret Hilda Roberts, who at 14 has seen a fortune teller who has hinted what life may hold in store, and she was written to the king to enquire whether she is the rightful heir to the throne; and, Sue Townsend who contributes a collection of vivid and "candid" writings from home and abroad.

'Wonderfully funny and sharp as knives' Sunday Times In the third instalment of the hilarious Adrian Mole series, 16-year-old Adrian navigates his way into adulthood . . . Monday June 13th I had a good, proper look at myself in the mirror tonight. I've always wanted to look clever, but at the age of twenty years and three months I have to admit that I look like a person who has never even heard of Jung or Updike. Adrian Mole is an adult. At least that's what it says on his passport. But living at home, clinging to his threadbare cuddly rabbit 'Pinky', working as a paper pusher for the DoE and pining for the love of his life, Pandora, has proved to him that adulthood isn't quite what he expected. Still, without the slings and arrows of modern life what else would an intellectual poet have to write about . . . __________ 'Essential reading for Mole followers' Times Educational Supplement 'Townsend has held a mirror up to the nation and made us happy to laugh at what we see in it' Sunday Telegraph 'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran

Discover the brilliantly funny True Confessions of Margaret Hilda Roberts by Sue Townsend, 'the funniest person in the world' - Caitlin Moran, The Times Tuesday May 24th Had a lie in until 6am. Then got out of bed and had a brisk rub down with the pumice stone. I opened the curtains and saw that the sun was shining brightly. (A suspicion is growing in my mind that the BBC is not to be trusted.) Margaret Hilda Roberts is a rather ambitious 14 1⁄4 year old grocer's daughter from Grantham. She can't abide laziness, finds four hours of chemistry homework delightful and believes she is of royal birth - or at least destined for great things. But Margaret knows that good things never come to those who wait . . . These are the secret diary entries of a girl born into an ordinary life, yet who might just go on to become something really rather extraordinary, and she is brilliantly brought vividly to life by bestselling author Sue Townsend, Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades.

'A classic. The Adrian Mole diaries are thoroughly subversive. A true hero for our time' Richard Ingrams The fourth book in Adrian Mole's diaries, where we catch up with a hapless Adrian and his desperate attempts to win back the love of his life. __________ Thursday January 3rd I have the most terrible problems with my sex life. It all boils down to the fact that I have no sex life. At least not with another person. Finally given the heave-ho by Pandora, Adrian Mole finds himself in the unenviable situation of living with the love-of-his-life as she goes about shacking up with other men. Worse, as he slides down the employment ladder, from deskbound civil servant in Oxford to part-time washer-upper in Soho, he finds that critical reception for his epic novel, Lo! The Flat Hills of My Homeland, is not quite as he might have hoped. But Adrian is about to discover that extraordinary and wonderful things may blossom even in the wilderness . . . __________ 'A very, very funny book' Sunday Times 'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran

The latest diaries of this set-upon yet ambitious closet genius are hilariously hedonistic and marvelously moving. They are filled with the kind of soulful, scathing and sly musings all of us indulge in but would never divulge. The most disarming pangs and prevarications are laid bare for our amusement. Adrian Mole, misunderstood, maligned, and muddled, is a nerdy hoot. And oddly captivating.

Reading The Decades

Author : John Sutherland

Genre : Literary Criticism

From literary classics to cookery books, blockbuster airport novels to self-help manuals, John Sutherland offers a portrait of Britain through the books that have inspired, excited and encouraged us to part with our cash. By exploring popular reading since 1945 Sutherland reveals a rich and compelling picture of the books themselves, the tremendous social changes and our responses to them. After the upheaval of World War II, Dr Eustace Chesser's ground-breaking sex manual Love without Fear reminded us how to make love not war; amid the austerity of food rationing, Elizabeth David wrote the first of her bestselling cookery books when most people could only dream of new foods and flavours. However, optimism soon turned to Cold War paranoia, which inspired John Wyndham to create his apocalyptic science fiction of the 1950s. Ian Fleming and John le Carr responded with their espionage thrillers of the 1960s and, in the 1980s, Peter Wright achieved notoriety with his all-too-factual Spycatcher. Occasionally, developments in publishing have themselves prompted social change. The acquittal of Lady Chatterley's Lover for obscenity in 1960 emancipated fiction in Britain, opening the way both for the 'bonkbuster'a novelists of the 1970s and 1980s and, in the 1990s, for the shocking realism of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting. With media globalization, Stephen King's Carrie and Bronowski's The Ascent of Man became forerunners in a franchise industry embracing print, film and merchandise, continuing today with the enormous success of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. Lively, entertaining, and often humorous, Reading the Decades provides a unique view of the cultural and social history of the later twentieth century.

First produced in Leicester in 1984, 'The Great Celestial Cow' is concerned with questions of community and of growth through sharing experiences within the Asian community. When Sita and her children leave India to join her husband in England, she is forced to sell her cow, but she keeps her milking bucket in the hope that she will be able to buy another cow in Leicester. But England is nothing like she expected: faced with prejudice from the English and restrictions of tradition from her family, Sita clings to the dream of the cow and some sense of her own identity.
