Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In 1963, Jimmy Wynn was the second most famous man in America. The comedian's uncanny impression of the President made him a star. But when the genuine article died in a hail of bullets on a sunny afternoon in New Orleans, Jimmy's career met a fate almost as grisly. What happened to the funny man afterward was a mystery no one cared to solve. Nearly 25 years later, Nathan Grant, an ambitious young journalist, discovers the trail Jimmy cut through the entertainment netherworld. He soon realizes this forgotten court jester may have played a very serious part in the country's favourite conspiracy theory. Grant's strange and increasingly dangerous odyssey takes him from a dingy New York record store to the showrooms of Las Vegas, a ghost town in the Mojave Desert, and even a dinner theatre in Niagara Falls. A dark comedy about the cost of fame, Jason Anderson's Showbiz is the story of a man who became a punchline and a writer who is desperate to find out how the rest of the joke goes.

15. A Modern Mephistopheles - Louisa May Alcott

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £12.65  - Click book title for availability and further details

Manipulation from a Faustian figure who also deals in drugs and fame?

Seduction and adultery lounging alongside a climax of redemption?

A Modern Mephistopheles is the stage for Louisa May Alcott's own secret passions. It is not the "pap" for children as Alcott said herself of her novel published anonymously in 1877. Not until after her death in 1888 was she revealed to the general public as its author.

This is not the Alcott that you think about, but it is the dark story she wanted to write about in a male-dominated Victorian Age of veiled and hypocritical constraint, a woman's metamorphosis away from a cocoon made by men for men.
