  • Pistacheby Sebastian Faulks

    Random House 2010; US$ 11.27

    pistache (pis-tash): a friendly spoof or parody of another's work. [Deriv uncertain.

Most of these pieces began their life... more...

  • This Septic Isleby Mike Barfield

    Ebury Publishing 2009; US$ 14.09

    Dictionary: A book with a Beginning, a Middle and an End - but not in that order. This Septic Isle is a dictionary that re-defines 21st Century Britain in the wickedest and wittiest way imaginable. In an age where Spin is King, this super-cynical, irreverant reference book finally tells it like it is, not like it isn't and never will be. With... more...

    Random House 2009; US$ 15.50

    Hello there! You'll have had your tea? Dougal here. Well, here we go, with our wee book. It's a collection or pot pourri (I've no idea what Hamish means by that - it sounds like something to do with the Pope) of our activities or 'doings' in the village we call home, because that's exactly what it is. Together with our housekeeper, Mrs Naughtie,... more...

At each venue Humph would present... more...

  • The Armstrongs' A-Z Guide to Lifeby Ann Armstrong; John Armstrong

    Random House 2009; US$ 11.27

    Have you ever wondered how typewriters can rival commercial radio? Why, according to John, it's best to shave only once a week, and with old fashioned soap and water? And what the various repercussions of spring and its extra hour of daylight bring? The BBC created a fantastically cult television series when they filmed the daily operations of John... more...

  • Don't Get Me Startedby Mitchell Symons

    Modern life is full of annoyances. Indeed it sometimes seems as if life conspires to become more and more annoying every day, just to piss us off. *Pop-up windows on the internet *Brian Sewell's voice *People who use finger signs to denote quotation marks *'Talking' birthday cards that never shut up *Mobile phone ringtones Is there no end to... more...

  • Not in My Nameby Chas Newkey-Burden; Julie Burchill

    Ebury Publishing 2008; US$ 12.68

    It is a great and glorious tradition the world over - to vehemently state one thing and then do the exact opposite. Royals are doing it, reformed smokers are doing it, and politicians are virtually synonymous with it. Welcome to the heyday of hypocrisy. From the Everyday Hypocrites (cyclists, white hip-hop fans, reality television-haters) to the... more...

From colonization and revolution to World... more...

  • It's Not That I'm Bitter . . .by Gina Barreca

    St. Martin's Press 2009; US$ 6.79

    In a world where eye cream is made from placenta, Gina Barreca is the lone voice calling out "But wait, whose placenta is it?" She asks the crucial questions: Why is there no King Charming? Why does no bra ever fit? Why are there no tutus in XL? Why do more intelligent women have trusted psychics than have trusted financial advisors? While she definitely... more...

  • Life's Little Annoyancesby Ian Urbina

    Henry Holt and Co. 2007; US$ 6.79

    What can you do when the world is pushing you over the edge? More than you think. For some of us, it's the automated voice that answers the phone when we'd rather talk to a real person. For others, it's the fact that Starbucks insists on calling its smallest-sized coffee "tall." Or perhaps it's those pesky subscription cards that fall out of magazines.... more...
