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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
