2. The Devil's Own War The Diary of Herbert Hart: Gallipoli, the Somme and Passchendaele as They Happened (Large Print 16pt) - John Crawford

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

Herbert Hart landed at Gallipoli on 26 April 1915, commanded the Wellington Battalion during the closing stages of that campaign, then served as a battalion and brigade commander on the Western Front between 1916 and 1918. Throughout the war he kept a diary, in which he recorded his experiences in the great battles on Gallipoli, the Somme and Passchendaele.
Hart's diary is now widely regarded as one of the most important personal sources relating to the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. Exceptionally well written, it includes gripping descriptions of both combat and life behind the front line and on leave in France and the United Kingdom. While Hart can appear quite detached at times, he is also a very human observer of the events around him, understanding the plight of his men, finding humour in the most unlikely situations and noticing unexpected details at moments of high tension.
As a first - hand account of life in the firestorm of World War One, 'The Devil's Own War' is hard to beat.

3. How I Came to Haunt My Parents (Large Print 16pt) - Natalee Caple

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

How I Came to Haunt My Parents is storytelling for parents on the verge of a nervous breakdown. In this beautifully written suite of short fiction Natalee Caple explores fables from the dark side of adulthood and imagines what moral Aesop may have offered to a mother who gave birth to a murderous dictator. Caple's animals and humans are imbued with modern complexity as they confront sex, death, and history, but her stories are as witty as they are profoundly lucid. How I Came to Haunt My Parents is proof of Caple's status as one of the great prose stylists currently writing. Praise for Natalee Caple: ''Moving...unsettling.'' - The New York Times on The Heart Has Its Own Reason ''A brilliant story - teller.'' - D.M. Thomas, author of The White Hotel ''Natalee Caple writes with sensual and captivating detail of people whose dreams drive them to unanticipated extremities.'' - Catherine Bush, author of The Rules of Engagement

4. The Bourgeois Empire (Large Print 16pt) - Evie Christie

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

Everything should stay as it is, or you will lose everything, and that's how it is for everyone.
Today was a day for getting along, liver - healing, a cocktail party and a faster wireless connection that tolerates renovated turn - of - the - century walls and allows Candy Cane (or Coconut?) to become a part of your afternoon en suite bathroom caucus. Life is not good, but it feels good, on occasion, baby, is what you might type.

- from The Bourgeois Empire

Paranoia, pills, and torrent after torrent of glorious porn. A marriage devoid of both sex and emotion. A broken hand, a perpetually surreal home reno, a dying dog.
For Jules, a successful professional with a wife and kids, all of this would be manageable - if it wasn't for Charlie. Because fifteen - year - old girls, dear reader, are something different entirely.
Jules is obsessed with a teenager - he's falling head over heels and attempting to arrest the march of time. He's a man, dammit - a man's man, a guy's guy - and that's all that matters.
The Bourgeois Empire, Evie Christie's first novel, is a Nabokovian fever dream, an encyclopedic guide to mortal sin, and a thoroughly contemporary reimagining of Billy Wilder's classic film The Lost Weekend. And yes, of course, it's a love story too.

6. The Biker Trials Bringing Down the Hells Angels (Large Print 16pt) - Paul Cherry

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

The Quebec - chartered ''Nomad'' chapter of the Hells Angels had two specific goals: to monopolize the Quebec drug trade; and to expand that trade across other parts of Canada. Their war against rival dealer gangs escalated to a boiling point, taking the lives of dozens of gangsters and innocent people as it played itself out openly on Montreal's streets. Little did the Nomads know that at the height of achieving their goals, they would also be months away from a lengthy police investigation to shut them down. The trials that followed revealed seven years of conflict and murder initiated by Maurice ''Mom'' Boucher, the man who was at the epicentre of this war. One criminal trial in particular turned out to be one of the longest in Canadian history. It meant convincing a jury to accept the notion that a biker gang works on the same principle as a pirate ship - even the cook knows what their common goal is. The ''biker trials'' brought out informants on both sides of the conflict, who, for a variety of reasons had turned on the gangs they had previously sworn loyalty to. Their testimonies revealed the arrogance of the Nomads in their pursuit of a monopoly over Quebec's illegal drug trade. Now, Cherry reveals the inside story of the biker culture and the biker trials.

7. Gutted (Large Print 16pt) - Evie Christie

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

Gutted, Evie Christie's powerful and harrowing debut, pulses with the rhythms of life, loss, and love. Energized with the language of now and the wide scope of popular culture, while dwelling in Yeats' ''foul rag and bone shop of the heart'' - a world where needs are unfulfilled and passions unrequited (or worse) - it also manages to revel in the beauty of fragility and discover awe in the smallest things. Depictions of alcoholism and sex contrast with scenes of contented domesticity; questions of faith stand in counterpoint to the harsher realities of pornography and violence. Lovers, friends, family, and strangers play an equal part in shaping these sharply barbed observations, fleshing out the typically unseen and unspoken dramas of both small town and urban existence. From out of ''an anarchy of conventional process'' comes Evie Christie's stunning, original observations - because despite the searing and sometimes controversial themes, this is essentially love poetry - the kind that will leave your ''heart plundered, hands lifted, gutted.''

20. The Chamberlain Case The Legal Saga That Transfixed the Nation (Large Print 16pt) - Ken Crispin

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

A baby disappears from a tent near Uluru in the sandy desert of central Australia. The Aboriginal trackers say she has been taken by a dingo. But amidst a melange of sinister rumours, suspicion falls on the parents, Lindy and Michael Chamberlain. There are no eyewitnesses, no body, no confession, no motive - and, apparently, credible evidence of their innocence. Yet the mother is convicted of murder; her husband, of concealing her crime. The case captures the public imagination like no other in Australia's history, and virtually divides the nation. Two appeals fail, and Lindy spends more than three years in prison before being released pending a royal commission. The convictions are quashed, but more than three decades pass before there is a finding that little Azaria was actually taken by a dingo. Ken Crispin, QC, appeared for the Chamberlains at the royal commission. In The Chamberlain Case, he provides an authoritative account of this saga, against a backdrop of Aboriginal spirituality and the Chamberlains' own religious beliefs. He examines the case against them at the trial, and the evidence that subsequently emerged - blood, dingoes, clothing, tracks - and he asks disturbing questions. Why were so many people convinced they were guilty? How could our legal system have failed? And could any of us fall victim to a similar miscarriage of justice?
