Hilarious, heartwarming and inspirational, this is the number 1 Sunday Times bestselling autobiography by comedian Sarah Millican. The funniest book of the year! *****'The naughtiest, helpiest, laughieoutloudiest and goodest book I've ever done reading on. Give that girl a banana!' DAWN FRENCH SARAH MILLICAN'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH, FEEL NORMAL AND PROBABLY SNIFF YOUR LEGGINGS. Part autobiography, part self help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut book delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom post divorce. If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your thirties, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is YOUR BOOK. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. 'Of course Sarah Millican's book will make you laugh out loud, but there are moments where she will touch you deeply. The dirty bitch.' KATHY BURKE

Morris Chestnut, Obi Obadike

When Morris Chestnut hit the media circuit to promote his latest blockbuster movie The Best Man Holiday, hosts and producers didn't want to hear about the movie as much as they wanted to talk about his incredible transformation into a buff, Hollywood sex symbol. The truth is that not long before shooting that film, Morris was in the worst shape of his life--30 pounds heavier than he should have been, avoiding the gym, and frequenting the drive-through. He turned to celebrity trainer Obi Obadike to help him turn things around in time for the movie, and the results were astounding. Morris went from 220-pounds to a ripped 187-pounds in just 12 weeks, and audiences haven't stopped raving about his new look--or asking how he achieved it!Now Morris and Obi are teaming up to share this groundbreaking and accessible program with fans nationwide. Backed by the latest cutting-edge nutrition science and featuring Obi's trademark fat-burning exercise program, THE CUT is designed to help readers drop pounds quickly - up to 10 pounds in 10 days and 40 pounds in 12 weeks- without stalling on the scale. Featuring Morris's personal exercise and diet plan as well as success stories from dozens of everyday people who have lost weight and kept it off, this book is a life-changer that will help readers reclaim their bodies and their lives, for good.

Fox, as the celebrated composer Harry Fox-Talbot is known, wants to be left in peace. His beloved wife has died, he's unable to write a note of music, and no, he does not want to take up some blasted hobby. Then one day he discovers that his troublesome four-year-old grandson is a piano prodigy. The music returns and Fox is compelled to re-engage with life - and, ultimately, to confront an old family rift.Decades earlier, Fox and his brothers return to Hartgrove Hall after the war, determined to save their once grand home from ruin. But on the last night of 1946, the arrival of beautiful wartime singer Edie Rose tangles the threads of love and duty, which leads to a shattering betrayal.With poignancy, lyricism and humour, Natasha Solomons tells a captivating tale of passion and music, of roots, ancient songs and nostalgia for the old ways, of the ties that bind us to family and home and the ones we are prepared to sever. Here is the story of a man who discovers joy and creative renewal in the aftermath of grief and learns that it is never too late to seek forgiveness.
