I’m Not Making This Up, You Know : An Autobiography of the Queen of Musical Parody
Russell, Anna
ISBN: 0826403646
Continuum Intl Pub Group November 1985  1985 
  8vo hardcover 246pp very good / very good d/w. From James McCourt - The New York Times Book Reviewn{This is} a book that too often turns its back on its audience to change its wig or fetch its props; one that fills up the required reading time with certain names, certain places and certain dates, but for all that worthy effortends up presenting a patter-song narration of its subject. . . . Something about the tone and the fundamental reluctance . . . to grapple with its matter, seriously, comedically, or both, calls that embarrassed stand-in on the dais to mind. I found myself wishing I could hear Anna Russell telling her story, on records. The story would most probably come across as plucky, even valiant--things I feel Anna Russell undoubtedly is. As adumbrated and edited here, she all too often sounds merely bewildered and embittered.nnFrom Sue Denholm - NotesnThe story of {Russell's} life reads, in many places, like her routines, with interesting asides, strange twists, and an abundance of fascinating details. . . . The book is filled with bits of trivia about the lives of famous and near-famous musicians and performers. . . . Some people might have wanted a more psychologically revealing autobiography, others a more thoroughly funny one. But this book is actually just right for its subject, for its reflects a truth that seems to have been hard-won, and one that formed the basis of Anna Russell's comic art.

I Remember Nothing - And other Reflections
Ephron, Nora
Black Swan 2011  2011 
  8vo. Softcover. 222pp. Very good. If there is any solace in growing older, it is that you will find yourself guffawing in hysterical recognition at the situations Nora Ephron describes, from the impossibility of trying to remember people's names at parties,to struggling with the new technology. You will find yourself rolling off the sofa snorting with laughter as she recalls with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten, including what it feels like to produce a flop - and you will swallow down a lump in your throat at the poignancy of her insights into the pain of losing friends, and the guilt of separation and divorce.

Whizz For Atomms
Williams, Geoffrey
Max Parrish, London UK 1956 
 Hardcover Less than 500g to post, 104pp with Searle's characterful lineart throughout. dj has signs of St Trinians to top edge. A story featuring the trials and tribulations of Nigel Molesworth at St Custards school. Using his own brand of outrageous spelling, it includes his advice on how to cope with "bulies, snekes, grown-ups and other chizzes". reviewer says >>> The third book in the 'Molesworth' sequence and everything is getting more offbeat and surreal. This book is supposedly a guide to life in the coming atomic age, but in fact it's a set of bizarre almost-random musings with a strong anti-authoritarian slant. The text is brilliant quasi-stream-of-consciousness stuff and the illustrations are technically brilliant and thematically perfect. Hilarious!  Very Good/Fair

Text Publishing, Melbourne, 2009. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Illustrator: photographs. First Edition. Despite the demands of successful ventures in stage, screen and their own richly rewarding fantasy lives, the Chaser team have found time to put together a new Annual. As always, it will cause controversy. Critics will certainly wonder how grown men can continue to churn out offensive undergraduate claptrap at their age. But, as millions have discovered over the years, no one can really understand current events, politics, popular culture or indeed anything else without a Chaser Annual at hand to help them appreciate its inherent stupidity. The Chaser Annual is not just a good laugh and an essential aid to informed discourse. It's a fantastic way to pass the time during a difficult bowel movement, and makes a perfect gift for someone you don't know. The book is without damage. It still has its hymen, and the pictures of Kevin Rudd have not been defaced. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall. [4], 108 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: photographs.

The edges of the text block are slightly darkened with age, and there is a slant on the spine front board over rear. The dustjacket has several longish tears, and rubbing and chipping. Now protected. Mr E. Kellie showed his skill as a modern bushranger in "I Can Get It for You Tax-Free!" But in this new book, Mr B. Hall shows that Mr E. Kellie is comparatively a novice. In brilliant fashion he simplifies much of the taxation labyrinth, clarifying such subjects as rebates for wives, parents and medical and dental expenses; The Provisional Tax; explains how to sell the goodwill of a business; how to reduce taxation by improving the farm, by putting relatives on the payroll, by increasing Directors' remuneration, and elucidate points of the double taxation agreement between Australia and the United Kingdom. Here, too, is the pertinent approach spritely satire and humour which made "I can get it for you tax-free!" A bestseller. Size: 12mo (Small Hardcover). Please refer to accompanying picture (s).

Rubbish
Klapish, Simon,
ISBN: 1877059528
Sid Harta Publishers, Hartwell, 2011. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. This book contains sex, violence, nudity and adult themes. Not to mention numerous jokes about bodily functions and rotting rubbish. Dave runs the biggest rubbish dump in the state. Rubbish and money are all he cares about, although he does have a growing desire for the local pig farmer's daughter. But when Dave goes off to Paris on a government sponsored fact-finding tour, he has no idea how his life will change. The head of the Paris dump offers to pay Dave to take some 'harmless' packages off his hands from a French Pacific island. Easy money and not much work, Dave thinks. That is until some Arab terrorists become interested in those packages, and the Israeli secret service becomes interested in the terrorists. From then on things become decidedly dodgy. An action comedy that romps through crazy business schemes, lust, and the odd scientific breakthrough to steamroll its way to a climax amongst the revolting, rotten and reviled rubbish of the dump! The book was published as a fund raiser for Rotary. Size: Mid Sized Paperback ( 7¾" - 9¾" tall ). 264 pages. A very clean secondhand copy, with no damage to report. .
