Book Summary:

This is not a new book but a specially adapted version of Adam Kay's bestseller This is Going to Hurt for Quick Reads. These short books are perfect for adults who are discovering reading for pleasure for the first time. Welcome to the life of a junior doctor. You work 97 hours a week. You make life and death decisions. You are often covered in blood (or worse) from head to toe. And the hospital parking meter earns more money than you do. Adam Kay's diary was written in secret after long days, sleepless nights and missed weekends. It is funny, moving and sometimes shocking. This is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn't – about life on and off the hospital ward. Specially rewritten for ease of reading by Francesca Main.

Book Summary:

We're often told that there are no quick fixes in teaching. This isn't entirely trueAnd post-lockdown, we need speedy fixes more than ever to get our students of English back on track. This book will show you how set texts can be reduced in a way that makes them richer. It will reveal how seemingly obscure literary theory can help learners of all abilities achieve rapidly. And it will help us prepare and revise for dreaded unseen texts, using the precious days we have with students in the most efficient way. Emma Stott uses her experience as a teacher of early entry students and as a Research Lead to gather eight strategies that enable students to be better readers and critics of literature in general; not just of the same (outwardly!) threadbare set texts. Speedy Reading promises to make you excited about those worn texts, the pleasures of unseen reading and even about the challenges to come.

He goes by the name of the Pale Man and he and his straight-edged razor have been feared all over London for twenty years. But Poe knows two things the Pale Man doesn't. Although it might seem like a hopeless situation, Poe has planned to be here all along. More importantly, a nerdy, computer whizz-kid called Tilly Bradshaw is watching his back.

Book Summary:

You ground yourself in the hope of finding true love. However, love is ever fleeting. One, you were never taught the true meaning of the word. Love is what we all desire, and with the hope of love, I have found out that everyone’s definitions of the word are as vast as the stars. My experience has shown me there are three types of people, takers, givers, receivers. Some lessons of life take many forms. Some good but mostly bad. It comes down to how you receive these lessons. I learned to welcome them all with the mindset of “IT is for my good.” Knowing and learning to have an overstanding that I don’t have to be understanding of it all. Some lessons of life take many forms, but I chose to put them into poetry.

Book Summary:

The “highly entertaining and thoroughly reprehensible” #1 New York Times bestseller—now with sixteen pages of photos and a new introduction (The New York Times). My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world. --from the Introduction Actual reader feedback: "I find it truly appalling that there are people in the world like you. You are a disgusting, vile, repulsive, repugnant, foul creature. Because of you, I don’t believe in God anymore. No just God would allow someone like you to exist." "I’ll stay with God as my lord, but you are my savior. I just finished reading your brilliant stories, and I laughed so hard I almost vomited. I want to bring that kind of joy to people. You’re an artist of the highest order and a true humanitarian to boot. I'm in both shock and awe at how much I want to be you."

Book Summary:

A literary icon’s “singular and beautiful” memoir of growing up as a first-generation Jewish American in Brownsville, Brooklyn (The New Yorker). A classic portrait of immigrant life in the early decades of the twentieth century, A Walker in the City is a tour of tenements, subways, and synagogues—but also a universal story of the desires and fears we experience as we try to leave our small, familiar neighborhoods for something new. With vivid imagery and sensual detail—the smell of half-sour pickles, the dry rattle of newspapers, the women in their shapeless flowered housedresses—Alfred Kazin recounts his boyhood walks through this working-class community, and his eventual foray across the river to “the city,” the mysterious, compelling Manhattan, where treasures like the New York Public Library and the Metropolitan Museum beckoned. Eventually, he would travel even farther, building a life around books and language and literature and exploring all that the world had to offer. “The whole texture, color, and sound of life in this tenement realm . . . is revealed as tapestried, as dazzling, as full of lush and varied richness as an Arabian bazaar.” —The New York Times

Book Summary:

It's November 1953 and Dylan Thomas, Britain's finest poet, is dying in a hospital bed in New York. What brought him to this end is not clear. But he is a man tormented by fear – fear of failing as a writer, fear of a marriage doomed to end in disaster, even fear of death itself – all of which have led him to find comfort in alcohol, outrageous behaviour and the arms of other women. Now, as Dylan lies waiting for the end, he thinks back over his life, from his childhood in Swansea to his days as a wild young poet in London, from his tempestuous marriage to Caitlin MacNamara to his final weeks in New York. Dylan Thomas may not have wanted to die but he had little desire to live. An interesting and attractive figure, who was doomed. Do Not Go Gentle paints a picture of a man who has clearly reached the end of his tether.
