12. Opportunity (Large Print 16pt) - Charlotte Grimshaw

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

A prize - winning and innovative collection of connected short stories. ''You could look back after a long time and ask, who wanted what from whom?'' A man confronts death after an operation, a devout Christian encounters a man who hurt her long ago, a secretary uncovers her boss's secret shame. And in a house in Auckland an elderly woman is writing the last book of her life, one which, she says, contains all of her crimes. How are the characters connected and who is writing the stories? Each of these astute stories is an inspection of motive, rich in vivid insight into a diverse range of lives. Together, they form a unified whole. Opportunity is a book about storytelling, about generosity and opportunism; above all it is a celebration of the subtleties of human impulses, of what Katherine Mansfield called the LIFE of life.

14. Overqualified (Large Print 16pt) - Joey Comeau

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

OVERQUALIFIED's cover letters are like a slap in the face, but the slap is hilarious, and you can't stop laughing, and as soon as it's over you want to tell all your friends about the slap.
You know the kind?'' - Ryan North, Dinosaur Comics ''Joey Comeau's OVERQUALIFIED is Judy Blume's ARE YOU THERE, GOD? IT'S ME, MARGARET as chewed up and spit out by J. G. Ballard. . . . A book whose melancholy is leavened by a surprising hilarity - Paul Di Filippo, author of THE STEAMPUNK TRILOGY and COSMOCOPIA Cover letters are all the same. They're useless. You write the same lies over and over again, listing the store - bought parts of yourself that you respect the least. God knows how they tell anyone apart, but this is how it's done.
And then one day a car comes out of nowhere, and suddenly everything changes and you don't know if he'll ever wake up. You get out of bed in the morning, and when you sit down to write another paint - by - numbers cover letter, something entirely different comes out.
You start threatening instead of begging. You tell impolite jokes. You talk about your childhood and your sexual fantasies. You sign your real name and you put yourself honestly into letter after letter and there is no way you are ever going to get this job. Not with a letter like this.
And you send it anyway.
