4. Is It Good for the Jews? More Stories from the Old Country and the New (Large Print 16pt) - Adam Biro

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

With Is It Good for the Jews? Biro offers a sequel to his acclaimed collection of stories Two Jews on a Train. Through twenty-nine tales - some new, some old, but all finely wrought and rich in humor - Biro spins stories of characters coping with the vicissitudes and reverses of daily life, while simultaneously painting a poignant portrait of a world of unassimilated Jewish life that has largely been lost to the years. From rabbis competing to see who is the most humble, to the father who uses suicide threats to pressure his children into visiting, to three men berated by the Almighty himself for playing poker, Biro populates his stories with memorable characters and absurd - yet familiar - situations, all related with a dry wit and spry prose style redolent of the long tradition of Jewish storytelling. A collection simultaneously of foibles and fables, adversity and affection, Is It Good for the Jews? reminds us that if in the beginning was the word, then we can surely be forgiven for expecting a punch line to follow one of these days.

5. Girl in Shades (Large Print 16pt) - Allison Baggio

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

Eleven - year - old Maya Devine has grown up with a warped view of reality. For one, she sees colour around people's bodies and can sometimes hear what's going on inside their heads. These insights make everyone a bit more interesting, but the one person she'll never figure out is her mother. Marigold has never been like other moms, but still, Maya sometimes feels like she is all she has.
When Marigold is diagnosed with cancer and vows to spend her final days in the teepee she's set up in the backyard, Maya's life quickly becomes unbearable. Neighbours and strangers, believing Marigold a prophet, camp out in the front yard, and Maya's father grows ever more distant. Thankfully Maya has Corey Hart, from whose pouty lips ''Never Surrender'' seems to issue for her and her alone. But Marigold's death leaves questions unanswered, and there are some wrongs that even Corey Hart can't right.
Moving from mid - 1980s Saskatoon to the Indian countryside almost a decade later, Girl in Shades follows Maya's search for her mother, her father, and above all, herself. Sweetly funny and deeply perceptive, Girl in Shades offers a fresh take on what it is to grow up and discover who you really are.

But he's always found stories of his Uncle Russ, the family black sheep, fascinating. In comes a letter from an old friend of his dead uncle inviting him up to Toronto. Doug, at loose ends and bored with killing time, accepts. On arrival, he learns that wealthy and glamorous Edna wants Doug to solve the murder of Russell Pearce and exonerate the chief suspect. And what about the legendary red diamond he was thought to be smuggling? Doug, nervous but game, agrees to play detective. How bad can it be to jet off to a glamour spot or two and have an adventure? Whoa! By the end of his first day in Casablanca, Doug knows he's made a mistake. And while he meets people eager to help - a retired museum curator, a beautiful and self-absorbed heiress, and her elderly father, a colleague of Russell Pearce - it becomes clear that someone else is interested in Doug and his quest. From Morocco to Egypt to Bahrain to Singapore, Doug stumbles on. And whether he's escaping across Cairo rooftops, ducking bullets in a high-speed desert chase, or killing time in a crowded Egyptian jail cell, Doug is sure of one thing: He has no clue what he's doing. But surely he'll think of something as he's propelled full circle back to Singapore and the famed Raffles Hotel. He's definitely not 007 ... but will he prove to be a zero?.....A compulsive traveler, occasional scuba diver, and incurable beginner saxophonist, Charles Benoit has worked in education and advertising. He and his wife, Rose, currently live in exotic Rochester, New York. Relative Danger is his first novel.

15. They Eat Puppies, Don't They? (Large Print 16pt) - Christopher Buckley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

 In an attempt to gain Congressional approval for a top secret weapons system, Washington lobbyist ''''Bird'''' McIntyre and sexy Neo - Con wonkette Angel Templeton start a rumour that the Chinese secret service is trying to assassinate the Dalai Lama. Their outrageous scheme provokes a series of crises involving the White House, the CIA, and a strangely sympathetic and vulnerable Chinese president, with both countries veering perilously towards war. Buckley has drawn his most convincing and outrageous characters to date: Bird, failed novelist of amusingly awful Clancy - esque thrillers; Angel, combination Anne Coulter and Ayn Rand; Bird's demanding, equestrian wife, Myndi; Bewks, his feckless but endearing Civil War re - enactor brother; the mild - mannered Chinese President Fa and his devoted aide Gang, manoeuvring desperately against sinister Politburo hard - liners Minister Lo and General Han. Blending the skewering genius of ''''Thank You For Smoking'''' with Dr. Strangelove's dark comedy, ''''They Eat Puppies Don't They?'''' has something to offend - and amuse - everyone.

17. The Secret Supper Club (Large Print 16pt) - Dana Bate

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

No book has changed our understanding of ourselves more than ''Darwin's Origin of Species''. It caused a sensation on its first day of publication in 1859 and went on to become an international bestseller. The idea that living things gradually evolve through natural selection profoundly shocked its Victorian readers, calling into question what had been for many the unshakeable belief that there was a Creator. In this book, Janet Browne, Charles Darwin's foremost biographer, shows why ''Darwin's Origin of Species'' can fairly claim to be the greatest science book ever published. She describes the genesis of Darwin's theories, explains how they were initially received and examines why they remain so contentious today. Her book is a marvellously readable account of the work that altered forever our knowledge of what it is to be human.
