1. The Great Gatsby (Large Print Edition) - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £19.99  - Currently in stock

The mysterious Jay Gatsby uses his fabulous wealth to create an enchanted world fit for his former love, Daisy Buchanan, now married to Tom. Daisy, though, is a romanticised figment of his own imagination, and the extraordinary world that he creates is equally illusory.

He gives lavish, legendary, parties where the guests and gate-crashers enjoy free-flowing champagne and cocktails and carefree hospitality. It is easy for modern readers to forget that the story takes place in the time of Prohibition (1920 to 1933) something that would have been immediately apparent when the book was first published. It enforces the nature of the unreal world that Gatsby creates, beyond the reach of the law and the police.

But a more sinister reality begins to break through, as idealised romantic figures prove to have human frailties and selfish motivations, and the grandiose world of Gatsby's creation crumbles and disillusion turns to tragedy.

17. Stripmalling (Large Print 16pt) - Jon Paul Fiorentino, Evan Munday

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

Stripmalling is the story of one young man's embarrassing and hilarious journey to literary awareness. Jonny lives and works in a strip mall in suburban Winnipeg. For some people, this would be an exciting and fulfilling life. But Jonny has a dream: he wants to be a writer. He has almost everything he needs to make this dream come true: a supportive girlfriend, an active imagination, and an abundance of subject matter. There is only one obstacle: his own relentless stupidity. Imagine Proust without all those annoying words and insights. Imagine a book so funny, so clever that even just touching it makes you a smarter, better person. Part journal, part comedy routine, and part graphic novel, Stripmalling is a unique experiment in genre and voice that is ambitious, accessible and laugh - out - loud funny. Parts of Stripmalling have appeared on CBC Radio One's All in a Weekend and in THIS Magazine, filling Station, Word, Event, Matrix, sub - Terrain, and Opium.

18. LAS DAMAS DE LA HABANA Y SUS JOYAS - José Fernández

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £13.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jose R. "Pepe" Fernandez was born in San Nicol√°s de Bari, Cuba, and since 1962 has been living in exile. Although his professional life has unfolded in the business sector, from an early age Pepe developed a love of reading and historical research. He is currently putting the finishing touches on yet another extensive research project on little known people and accounts relating to the Cuban wars of independence. The current work was born from the desire to understand how a falsehood of the eighteenth century could become a fact validated by the last three generations of our most important historians. In good measure, it is thanks to professional support that belief in the myth of Las Damas de La Habana y sus joyas (the Ladies of Havana and their jewelry) has become one of the best known and loved historical "facts". Although many might object, the author's only purpose in exposing the truth is to help prevent today's lies of propaganda from becoming tomorrow's historical truth.
