3. 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.

19. Never Too Fast The Paul Tracy Story (Large Print 16pt) - Paul Ferriss

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

The true story of the most dangerous race car driver on the circuit ... Paul Tracy was just a youngster when he discovered fast cars. Growing up in West Hill, Ontario, Paul dreamt of his hero Gilles Villeneuve, and when his father left him at the local go - kart track with a full tank of gas each morning, he retrieved Paul - and the empty tank - at night.
Tracy rose quickly through racing's minor leagues, setting and breaking records as he went. At 17 he was racing cars with twice the horsepower of the family cars his friends were just learning to drive. Veteran team managers and drivers knew they were seeing someone special on the track: a quiet kid with the looks of a boy scout and the desire of a champion. Soon Tracy dominated kart racing, won at Can - Am racing, and ruled Indy Lights. He then stormed into the Championship Auto Racing Team circuit, racing wheel to wheel with Emerson Fittipaldi and Mario Andretti. In those early races, even driving an underpowered car, Tracy proved he could run with the big boys.
But Paul Tracy's success has come with its share of hardships. His aggressive driving style on the cart circuit has made almost as many enemies as fans. He's been criticized, penalized, and vilified both on and off the track. Nevertheless, two things remain consistent - his desire to drive fast, and his desire to win.
When you live in a world of speed and danger, a world where success is measured in tenths of seconds and inches can separate winners from losers, one thing is certain: you can never be too fast.

20. Eureka The Unfinished Revolution (Large Print 16pt) - Peter Fitzsimons

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

Eureka Stockade - The Unfinished Revolution
In 1854, Victorian miners fought a deadly battle under the flag of the Southern Cross at the Eureka Stockade. Though brief and doomed to fail, the battle is legend in both our history and in the Australian mind. Henry Lawson wrote poems about it, its symbolic flag is still raised, and even the nineteenth - century visitor Mark Twain called it: ''a strike for liberty''.
Was this rebellion a fledgling nation's first attempt to assert its independence under colonial rule? Or was it merely rabble - rousing by unruly miners determined not to pay their taxes.
This edition is in two volumes. The second volume ISBN is 9781459651050.
