3. I, Tania (Large Print 16pt) - Brian Joseph Davis

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

America lies in ruins during an age of decline, despair, and death. The year is 1975 and a radical far - left group has kidnapped a young woman from one of America's richest families. She will later join their cause and will eventually be arrested and convicted of armed robbery. She will claim it was a ''different personality'' that robbed the bank. The jury didn't buy it, but author Brian Joseph Davis did. The important difference is: Davis thought her ''different personality'' was more interesting and deserved her own fake memoir. Welcome to I, Tania, a book that uses the memoir format just enough to spin off into a crazed, bawdy, and seditious charge through pop culture, politics, and the meaning of fiction itself. I, Tania begins by recounting the highly fictionalized true story of the rise and fall of the Symbianese Liberation Army, as it never happened. Brainwashing will never be as much fun as when Tania takes you on an armed - to - the - teeth trip through one of the strangest episodes in history while writing her memoirs in the year 2005. Tania may have survived bank heists and open relationships, but will she be able to survive the savage world of contemporary book publishing and promotion? More than just a run - of - the - mill fake memoir, I, Tania will blast you into a million little pieces with: The hidden Marxist meanings behind Cujo Why John McEnroe is scarier than Ian Curtis How Don DeLillo can kill . . . with his mind Do violent debutantes have a place in political struggle? After Tania and Katie Couric's climactic talk show, you'll know the shocking, surprisingly funny answer.

4. Idaho Winter (Large Print 16pt) - Tony Burgess

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Idaho Winter begins as the story of a boy with an extraordinarily painful existence. He is, through no fault of his own, loathed by everyone in the town where he lives. His father, Early Winter, feeds him roadkill for breakfast. The crossing guard steers cars toward him as he crosses the road. Parents encourage their children to plot cruelly against him. One morning Idaho finds it too much to bear and hides down by the river where he meets Madison. Madison, astonishingly, is as hurt by how he's treated as he is. For the first time in his life Idaho experiences someone's empathy and it opens a terrible world of pain in him. He dotes on Madison, in awe of her, and he cleans her muddy feet in the river, drying them with his shirt. Suddenly, hunting dogs descend on the scene and, trained to attack the smell of Idaho, set their jaws on Madison's feet.
Then Idaho does something that changes everything. He gets up and runs home. Not so strange until the author realizes that this part was never written. Idaho becomes enraged upon learning that his suffering has been cruelly designed by a clumsy writer who confesses that he made his book meaner than all the others so it would stand out. Idaho locks the author in a closet and runs off, armed with the knowledge that the entire world is invented and that he has the power now to imagine it differently.
When the author emerges from the closet he finds that his novel is now unrecognizable. Phantoms and monsters, beasts from the boy's angry thoughts now dominate the streets. Beneath the earth there is a resistance movement of secondary characters, including the poor Madison who is now bedridden and what's more: anyone who comes within 50 feet of her is paralyzed with sadness and cannot move or be moved. The author sets out with these characters to cure the novel, to find a way to bring its mind and heart together as they embark on a journey as perilous and paradoxical as anything HG Wells or Lewis Carroll ever imagined.

THE #1 BEST-SELLING AUTHOR HAS RETURNED WITH AN ORWELLIAN CLASSIC...

Get your copy of Joss Sheldon's radical novel today.


Beloved friend,

The year is 2084, and that famous Margaret Thatcher quote has become a reality: There really is no such thing as society. No one speaks to anyone else. No one looks at anyone else. People don't collaborate, they only compete.

I hate to admit it, but this has had tragic consequences. Unable to satisfy their social urges, the population has fallen into a pit of depression and anxiety. Suicide has become the norm.

It all sounds rather morbid, does it not? But please don't despair, there is hope, and it comes in the form of our hero: Renee Ann Blanca. Wishing to fill the society-shaped hole in her life, our Renee does the unthinkable: She goes in search of human company! It's a radical act and an enormous challenge. But that, I suppose, is why her tale's worth recounting. It's as gripping as it is touching, and I think you're going to love it...

Your trusty narrator,

PP

Perfect for fans of "1984" and "A Brave New World". Not so great for neoliberals...


Praise for Individutopia:

  • "Gloriously colourful" - The Canary
  • "An exciting tale" - The Dallas Sun
  • "Outstanding" - We Art Friends
  • "An epiphany" - The Avenger

    16. 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.
