I Feel Bad About My Neck - and other thoughts on being a woman
Ephron, Nora
ISBN: 9780552773812
Black Swan 2008  2008 
  8vo. Softcover. 209pp. Very good. You can put makeup on your face and concealer under your eyes and dye on your hair, you can shoot collagen and Botox and Restylane into your wrinkles and creases, but short of surgery, there’s not a damn thing you can do about a neck. Acclaimed Hollywood filmwriter and director Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail) turns her sharp powers of observation back onto herself in these autobiographical essays as she examines the indignities of ageing for the Baby Boom generation. Filled with wickedly witty autobiographical pieces like 'I Hate My Handbag', 'Blind as a Bat' and 'What I Wish I'd Known', this book offers the consolation that no matter how much your neck sags, your boobs droop, your skin wrinkles and your children don't appreciate you, someone has been there before you. Nora Ephron captures the essence of what it means to be a grumpy old woman, in a laugh-out-loud funny, frank and unexpectedly moving book that will be an irresistible treat for any woman who reads it.

Chapmans, 1992  1992 
  8vo softcover 286pp index. very good. This is a biography of John Cleese - comedy writer, TV and film star. Known as an eccentric Englishman, he is also renowned for his ventures into the realms of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. This book includes stories both by and about Cleese that begin when Cleese was an awkward tall boy, six foot four at 13 years old, from Weston-super-Mare. Cleese nearly became a solicitor until he discovered Cambridge and the Footlights. Following on from this he starred in "Newsweek" for six weeks, and "Monty Python" and as the manic Basil in "Fawlty Towers". He was the solicitor Archy Leech in the film "A Fish Called Wanda" which gave him a reputation as a sex symbol in both America and Japan.

Arthur Daley Straight Up the autobiography.
Ableman, Paul
ISBN: 0434000663
Heinemann 28 October, 1991  1991 
  8vo hardcover 224pp b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. This is the life story of that legendary Englishman and entrepreneur, Arthur Daley, star of the ITV programme "Minder". It is published to coincide with a new 13-part series. Arthur talks frankly about his childhood, his early business initiatives, his time in uniform. He offers glimpses of life with "'er indoors" and dwells in some detail on his relationship with his former employee, Terry McCann. He aims, in short, to take full advantage of this opportunity to put the record straight, and his accounts of his involvement with a galaxy of establishment figures, well-known to the punter, stop at nothing short of the varnished truth. And he offers a vision - of the future, and of Fulham, scene of his many triumphs over the last half-century.

The Hamster That Loved Puccini: The Seven Modern Sins of Christmas Round-robin Letters

  Small 8vo hardcover 176pp index, b/w illus. very good+. / Very good+ d/w. Simon Hoggart is back with a new treasure trove of Christmas round robins. And this time they illustrate the seven deadly sins of their writers, including boastfulness (dazzlingly clever children who play the saxophone and ski for Britain); smugness (their job, their house, their holidays are all perfect); tiny-mindedness (do we really need to be told how to start a jigsaw by looking for the straight bits?); whimsy (letters written by pets or babies); and the dreaded over-sharing, in which every illness and operation is described in minute, unwanted detail.

Too Good to Be True: The Colossal Book of Urban Legends
Brunvand, Jan Harold
W. W. Norton & Company 2001  2001 
  Small 4to softcover 480pp, b/w illus. very good. From Publishers Weekly: If a story sounds too good to be true, well, then it's probably an urban legend. Brunvand, the nation's leading authority on these contemporary folktales, draws from five previous collections (The Choking Doberman, Curses! Broiled Again!, etc.), from letters to his syndicated columns and from newspapers around the country, in this truly colossal anthology of horrendous and hilarious stories that sound as if they're true and most of the tellers believe are true, but somehow can never be verified. These are stories told by a FOAF (a friend of a friend) or a neighbor of the radio dispatcher who knows the deputy who talked to the doctor who treated 18 slash victims at the local mall. Many are familiar talesAof the hook heard rasping against the car door handle, of alligators in the sewers of New York, of earwigs in ears and spiders in bouffant hairdosAthis last traced back to the 13th century. Everyone will find at least two or three stories they could have sworn really happened. These are stories that turn up in every region of the country, every walk of life, and that invariably involve laughing paramedics, a dead grandmother stashed on the luggage rack, a fantastically cheap price for a Porsche or an exorbitant one for a cookie recipe from Neiman MarcusAor is it Marshall Fields? In demonstrating how such stories spread, change and endure, and how certain kinds of stories attach themselves to certain franchises and products ("Kentucky Fried Rat" is an especially gruesome example), Brunvand has constructed not only an enterta
