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

Is it Just Me?
Hart, Miranda
Hodder & Stoughton  2012 
 Softcover 323 pp & just over the 500g to post (add a title or 2 & use up your post allowance). Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures - surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you too dear reader) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path. reviewer says >> In her brilliantly funny book, TV's Miranda muses on some of the most challenging, baffling and 'hideola' aspects of life... all the anecdotes are told in her unique style, with regular interjections from her 18-year-old self. Such fun! Faults? (with book, not Miranda) bumped corners.  Very Good/None issued

Gland Time
Townshend, Don
Pan  1976 
 Paperback Gland Time by Townshend is self-described as "the funniest Australian novel of all time". The author once worked in a slaughterhouse and was a barman and that's where it all is: between booze and bowels--belched out with an Aussie inflection. The main action concerns the efforts of the friends of Butch Bray, kingpin of the local slaughterhouse, to relieve his 40-year-old virginity, and attempts to further the career of a racing greyhound named Beaver. The ultimate solution to both projected triumphs entails feeding Beaver and Butch appropriate animal glands. Gift inscription & 222pp & less than 500g.  Very Good/None issued
