41. No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money - David Lough

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

The popular image of Churchill conjures up a man of wealth and substance. The reality is that Britain's most celebrated 20th-century statesman lived for most of his life on a financial cliff-edge. Only fragments of information about his finances, or their impact on his public life, have previously emerged. With the help of unprecedented access to Churchill's private records, David Lough creates the first fully researched narrative of Churchill's private finances and business affairs. As he reveals the scale of Churchill's financial risk-taking, combined with an ability to talk or write himself out of the tightest of corners, the links between the private man and public figure become clear.

42. Joanna Lumley The Biography (Large Print 16pt) - Tim Ewbank

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

This affectionate and immensely readable biography charts the remarkable life of Joanna Lumley, who has been an endlessly fascinating figure for over four decades, since becoming a top model in ''The Swinging Sixties''. Today, she is best known for her role as Patsy in ''Absolutely Fabulous'' and, most recently, her championing of the Gurkhas' cause, for which she is now regarded as a national treasure. An exotic cocktail of Home Counties and Hollywood, Joanna is revered as much for her tireless campaigning for animal rights and other causes, as for her repertory of characters on stage, screen and TV. Tim Ewbank and Stafford Hildred draw on their interviews with Joanna herself, her relatives, friends and co - stars to produce this meticulously researched and revealing portrait of one of Britain's most likeable star.
