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.

13. Gangsters, Guns and Me Now I'm in Eastenders ... But Once I Was on the Run. This Is My True Story. (Large Print 16pt) - Jamie Foreman

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

Jamie Foreman is one of Britain's most iconic actors. He is also the son of Britain's most notorious gangster, Freddie Foreman. Jamie's life has been anything but ordinary. Right from the start, his world was one of contrast and contradiction: he grew up surrounded by London's criminal elite, living by their code of honor and respect, yet he himself was brought up to be a ''straight goer.'' The backdrop of his home life was to differ greatly from his time at school as, at seven years old, Jamie found himself in the unlikely surroundings of a boarding school. The happiness of his family and school life was snatched from Jamie when his father was sentenced to ten years in prison for his involvement in the killing of Jack ''The Hat'' McVitie. The subsequent years saw Jamie without the father he adored and the whole family was put under enormous strain. At 14, Jamie decided that his passion was for acting and, having been encouraged by Barbara Windsor, he discovered yet another new environment at the Italia Conti Stage School. Jamie thrived in the acting world and was soon enjoying success on both stage and screen. By the time of his dad's release from prison, Jamie had carved a ''straight'' career for himself - but after years apart, there was plenty of lost time to make up for. Soon, he was dividing his time between acting and assisting with Freddie's ''business.'' Whether on the streets or on the stage, there was never a dull moment; Jamie was living life at 100 miles an hour and loving it. Before long, though, life took a surprising turn when a drug deal his father was heavily involved in went tragically wrong and he was forced to go on the run to America with his dad, which marked the start of a whole new adventure.

17. The Dancer and the Dance A Book of Distinctions (Large Print 16pt) - Jack Foley

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

Jack Foley's The Dancer and the Dance: A Book of Distinctions deliberately challenges many conventional ways of thinking about poetry. Though extremely scholarly and aware of the ''tradition,'' Foley offers readings rooted in a consciousness which is simultaneously non academic and open to the new. ''The self of this book,'' he writes, ''is not a unity but a multiplicity. Many people would agree with this idea of selfhood - the self as a multiplicity of voices' - but clarification is still required as to how the concept of the self as multiplicity affects literary criticism, how it affects our actual reading of poems. It may be that the self we postulate as we read a poem contradicts the self we experience in the world; it is also possible that familiar poems may be experienced anew by being read in the light of multiplicity.'' Foley's explorations lead him into radically new readings of ''canonic'' work by poets such as Keats, Yeats and Mallarm , into the world of opera, free jazz, New Formalism, and the writing of song lyrics, into ''ethnic'' literature, theater, and finally into problems of ''spoken word'' and ''slam poetry.'' Throughout, his point of view, initially controversial, becomes finally compelling. ''It is possible,'' he says quietly about the whole of Western culture, ''that Plato was wrong, and that we must make an effort to think in a different way if we are to encounter reality at all.''

20. Hey God! (Large Print 16pt) - Frank Foglio

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

Mama Foglio, her cantankerous husband, and ten rambunctious kids were poor. In fact, they were so poor that the poor people called them poor. Then one day the Lord burst into their lives, in the form of another, equally poor, equally large and tumultuous Italian - American family who stormed into their home and evangelized them mano a mano. Thus begins what has got to be the most hilarious, warm - hearted and frequently deeply - moving testimony ever given to the glory of the Lord.
