Confessions Of An English Opium Eater


Category: Letters Diaries Biographies and Autobiographies
Description: Harper Collins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. ' I here present you, courteous reader, with the record of a remarkable period in my life ...' The Confessions of an English Opium Eater is both a classic of the English autobiographical genre and a hard-nosed study of the effects of drugs on an artistic mind. A close associate of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the brilliant but troubled de Quincey recounts both the pleasures and pain of opium addiction in captivating prose. The result is by turns enlightened, nightmarish and witty - a faithful mirror of the drug itself.

Description: Mohamed El- Bachiri is a Muslim. He lost his wife Loubna in the Brussels bombing of March 2016 - a young woman murdered by a fanatical jihadist. Mohamed was left to bring up their three sons on his own. Instead of hating or collapsing into grief, he put together a short book of reflections on love, loss and the ways in which we can live together despite differences of religion and ideology. It is a plea for tolerance and compassion, a rejection of fanaticism, and it is a heartbreaking book. Mohamed El- Bachiri shows how an argument for treating each other with kindness and respect can survive even the most brutal atrocity. For him, Islam should be a struggle for love, and the struggle for love should involve us all.

Description: The third in a series of true short stories from foster carer Mia Marconi. Brody had been on the at-risk register since birth but was only removed from his alcoholic parents when he reached the age of six. Foster carer Mia Marconi was thrilled when he first arrived - a boy the same age as her son. It can be so bewildering for foster children when they arrive. The older ones are usually withdrawn and sullen. The younger ones will be screaming, spitting at you, making themselves sick and throwing themselves on the floor. For Mia, it's normally her boisterous, happy children who provide the comfort at the beginning, because why should they trust another adult. Children always feel safe and secure when there are other children about. Mia believes it's through making relationships with other children that they begin to trust adults again. But little did she know that six-year-old Brody was actually taking his anger and frustration out on her son. She quickly begins to realise the heavy price her family has had to pay.

Description: Actor. Film star. Martial artist. Mountaineer. Trained undertaker. Unlikely diplomat. There's no one quite like Brian Blessed and in his new autobiography, Absolute Pandemonium, the national treasure takes readers on a riotous journey from his childhood to finding fame. Told in his own words (you can even hear his bellowing voice as you read!), Brain leaves no detail to the imagination as he regales readers with tales such as falling for Katharine Hepburn on the set of The Trojan Women, suffering some unfortunate wire problems when he's hoisted to the heavens on the set of Flash Gordon and charming George Lucas to land the part of Boss Nass in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. There are far less ' Hollywood' stories along the way, too, where Brian takes secret revenge on his headmistress (and her very big bottom), woos his wife Hildegard Neil and braves the shocking death toll on the hit drama series My Family and Other Animals... A perfect book for his many, many fans and those with an interest in film and theatre, Brian Bessed's autobiography is hilarious, light-hearted and very, very loud.

Description: A top gardening judge who presides over the UK's favourite flower shows, Jim Buttress reveals his life story in this warm and funny memoir. Starting his career as a practical gardener, Jim reveals how he managed to achieve one of the most impressive careers in British horticulture. He fondly looks back on his boyhood obsession with Percy Thrower and the 10 years he spent as Superintendent of the Central Royal Parks - a job that could involve anything from having a chat with the Queen Mother to figuring out ways to water elephants in Hyde Park. He also reveals what it's like to exhibit - and win gold - at the Chelsea Flower Show and shares some of the stories he's seen as judge. From the joy of awarding medals to grateful winners to the shock of being threatened by an irate loser, this book is packed with colourful characters and a grand love for all things gardening.
