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: Ann Rule delves into the mysterious death of Ronda Reynolds, a former state trooper whose death, ruled a suicide ten years ago, is now considered a murder. On December 15, 1998, thirty-three-year-old Ronda Reynolds was living with her husband of eleven months in the small town of Toledo, Washington-but she planned to leave him that night and fly to Spokane, Washington where her mother, brother, and grandmother eagerly awaited her visit for the Christmas holidays. But as Barb Thompson, Ronda's mother, waited in an airport amid Christmas decorations in 1998, Ronda never arrived. Ronda had sounded happy on the phone only hours before, excited that she would be seeing her family. But sheer dread replaced confusion as the news of Ronda's death arrived. Her husband told a 911 operator that Ronda had committed suicide. Now, a decade later, the only thing we can be sure of is that Ronda Reynolds died violently that night, and the lies and contradictions of her husband began to unravel. Written with the complete cooperation of Barb Thompson, Ronda's mother, this is a homicide puzzle that Ann Rule fans will find haunting and utterly captivating.

Lydia is now 23 and 'recovering'. She strongly believes that recovery is possible, and feels she is almost there. She wrote her book to explain her deepest thoughts and to explain the painful mental torture that she endured and overcame. And she wrote it in the hope that others suffering would relate to it, and that other families watching their loved ones will be touched and understand more deeply how an eating disorder really feels.

Muhammad Ali - A Tribute To The Greatest


Category: Letters Diaries Biographies and Autobiographies
Description: ' Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee' Muhammad Ali was not only one of the greatest sporting icons of all time but also one of the biggest influences on 20th century culture. The talented boxer sadly died on 3 June, 2016 but his legacy will live on for a long time to come. In this incredible biography, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Thomas Hauser provides a personal tribute to the man who called himself ' The Greatest'. Relying on personal insights, interviews with associates and contemporaries of Ali, along with his own personal memories from working as a boxing journalist, this biography aims to reveal what Ali was like - both in and out of the ring. Hauser states that he believes that over the years there has been a deliberate distortion of what Ali believed, said and stood for. In this book, he examines what Ali was actually like and the real reasons he is so universally revered.

Absolute Pandemonium


Category: Letters Diaries Biographies and Autobiographies
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.

Call The Midlife!


Category: Letters Diaries Biographies and Autobiographies
Description: Now he's approaching 50, Chris Evans is very much aware he's a prime candidate to be entering a 'midlife crisis'. In this book, he argues that this is completely the wrong term for this time in a man or woman's life and it's really the Golden Age. At 50, many people are still capable of physically doing everything they have always wanted to - and sometimes even better than before! Mentally, those approaching their 50s are also more in the know than before, but how do you make the most of this time? Here, Chris talks about taking a year out to plan to make the most of this period and enjoy a successful future. Wise and witty, Chris looks at the best ways to rest, the most worthwhile relaxation methods and the sleep and nutrition needed to ensure there's a happy 25 years (at least) ahead.
