A rare glimpse into an artist's mind, his toolbox, and the world of film animation The Sweater is one of the most beloved animated films of all time. Based on Roch Carrier's short story, also known as ''The Hockey Sweater,'' the film recounts the most horrifying moment of the author's childhood. Sheldon Cohen adapted the story into animation and created a film that is as much about childhood emotions and the desire to fit in, as it is about hockey, the clash of cultures, and a harkening to bygone times. Now 30 years later, Sheldon delves into his notebooks, photographs, and memories to recreate the process he undertook to make The Sweater. He takes the reader on a journey back to Ste. - Justine, showing all of the places and people that inspired him.

9. Street to Street (Large Print 16pt) - Brian Castro

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

Street to Street is one of Brian Castro's best books yet, a comic - tragic enactment of the anxieties of the writing life, in which the early twentieth - century Sydney poet Christopher Brennan plays a major role. A legendary figure, with a commanding knowledge of classical and European poetry, Brennan wrote some of the most powerful poems in Australian literature. He died an impoverished alcoholic at the age of sixty - one. Castro's double portrait of the poet and his biographer, the writer - academic Brendan Costa, plays on the disappointment, the guilt, the lack of recognition, which troubles those who live by their imaginations. The novella is the perfect form for Castro's purpose, its compression heightening the wit and energy of his prose, and his remarkable feel for the embarrassments of character.

10. 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.

14. The Secret Life of Glenn Gould A Genius in Love (Large Print 16pt) - Michael Clarkson

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

Long after his death, Glenn Gould still lures new listeners to his piano, connecting with them on a haunting, personal level. ''He feels and you feel,'' says young New York writer Nicole Spectre. ''I can feel his pain and joy - it touches me. He speaks directly to me.'' But when he was known as the world's greatest pianist in the 1950s and 1960s, just who was Gould playing for? His audience? Himself? His demanding mother? All are likely true, but he was also richly inspired by - and bared his soul at the keyboard to - a secret society of women, the girlfriends who stirred his hard - to - fetch emotions: Franny Batchen, Verna Sandercock, Cornelia Foss, Roxolana Roslak, and Monica Gaylord. Of the eighteen books and nineteen documentaries by or about the most compelling virtuoso of the twentieth century, none have contained details about Gould's many love affairs and how they affected his life, his music, and his filmmaking. Until now, biographers have tried to explain what came out of the music box, not the engine that drove it. The vault to his private life has remained locked since his untimely death in 1982 because of his obsessions with privacy and controlling his image, the loyalty of his carefully chosen friends and lovers, and the choice that biographers made to focus safely on his music and eccentricities. The Secret Life of Glenn Gould will be the first true expos of Gould, who until now has been assumed to be asexual, lonely, and egocentric, by examining his love and soul - mate relationships. His music was twelve - tonal and his documentaries ''contrapuntal'' - both were filled with overlapping voices - and so was his private life.

16. You Can't Always Get What You Want My Life with the Rolling Stones, the Grateful Dead (Large Print 16pt) - Sam Cutler

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

Sam Cutler was tour manager for the Rolling Stones at some of their major gigs in the late sixties, including the infamous concert at Altamont where a man was murdered by a Hells Angel in front of the stage while the Stones played on. After the show, Sam was left behind to make peace with the Hells Angels, the various mobsters and organizations who had taken an overt interest in the event, and the people of America. There has never been an official investigation into events at Altamont and those involved have never before spoken on record. Sam Cutler has decided that it is time to put to rest the myths and legends that have grown up around this infamous event in rock history and for the first time reveal the truth. Sam survived Altamont and went on to live the ultimate rock and roll dream. This is also his own account of the high ol' times he had managing tours for San Francisco band the Grateful Dead - who went on to become the world's most successful live act. Along the way Sam draws intimate portraits of other stars of the psychedelic circus that was the music industry in the sixties and seventies, including Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Band, the Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, and Eric Clapton. This is an exhilarating, all - areas - access rock memoir from someone who has seen - and done - it all.

17. Cherry Beach Express A Steve Nastos Mystery (Large Print 16pt) - R. D. Cain

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

Behind the facade of the crisp, dark suit, under a sharp haircut and behind pale blue eyes, was a place of anguish. Steve Nastos walked down the street, avoiding eye contact with various lawyers, court clerks and police officers in the court district of Downtown Toronto. Not long ago, he had been a respected detective in the Sexual Assault Unit, a father to a seven - year - old girl and a husband to a beautiful wife. He now wondered what kind of a father or husband he could be in jail.
Despite his best efforts, his smile eroded at times as the natural walker's sway of his arms was constricted and squeezed from the handcuffs digging into his wrists behind him. His shoulders, aching for relief, burned from the weight of his increasingly heavy arms. The last time he had worn cuffs was in training at Police College, twenty - five years and thirty pounds ago; they were a little tighter and heavier now.
Detective Steve Nastos is on trial for murdering his dentist, a man who Nastos believes committed an unspeakable crime against his daughter. When Nastos is freed on bail he tries to track down the actual killer, but is handicapped by his recovering alcoholic lawyer, as well as a rogue cop and a judge who has little concern for the truth. Separated from his wife, whom he still burns for, Nastos has to protect her when she becomes involved in the case.
Cherry Beach is a quiet area on the Toronto waterfront where bad cops do bad things to worse people. When you ride the express, you can expect life to speed out of control.

All goes well for a time, but as the stakes grow higher, the inevitable setbacks occur. When Jay teams up with a crusty old bank robber named Irving, he also inherits a host of other felons who come out of jail to visit his new partner, ex - cons such as: Randy the hit man who liked to practise his fast draw in front of a mirror; Simon, the drug - running pilot; and Chico Perry, who smoked reefer in his pipe while robbing banks and shooting it out with the cops. Drug - runners, police, jealous friends, and rival gangs all contribute to this extraordinary story told by a young man who became involved at the highest levels of the drug trade, and lived to tell about it. Smuggler's Blues is a rare opportunity to experience life in another world - a world where survival relies on brains, brawn, and a generous measure of good luck.
