Busty, Slag and Nob End

By Russell Ash

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

Extensively researched, riotously entertaining book documenting a whole world of utterly true, unusual, hilarious and ridiculous names of people, places and products

Building on the phenomenal success of POTTY, FARTWELL AND KNOB, this new collection of extraordinary but true names goes a step further...

In BUSTY, SLAG AND NOB END, Russell Ash has compiled real names from around the world that are really rude and are of places and products as well as people. The result of painstaking research, each name has been thoroughly checked and authenticated: you will marvel at the range of naughty nomenclature and hoot at the unwitting innuendo. From Harriet Nicewonger (born Derbyshire c.1876) and Connie Lingus (resident of Indiana, USA) to Dick Swinger (born Switzerland c.1842) and Blo Job (US immigrant from Slovakia, born c.1897); from Titty Ho in Northamptonshire to Dildo in Newfoundland; and from Cock Soup to Pee Cola - this compendium of sauciness is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.

Biographical Notes

The Zookeeper's Wife

Diane Ackerman
Authors:
Diane Ackerman

In war-torn Warsaw, a zookeeper and his wife refuse to surrender... Now a major motion picture starring Jessica Chastain and Daniel Brühl, Diane Ackerman's The Zookeeper's Wife is based on a remarkable true story of bravery and sanctuary during World War II. Perfect for fans of Lion and Hidden Figures. 'I can't imagine a better story or storyteller. The Zookeeper's Wife will touch every nerve you have' -Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated When Germany invades Poland, Luftwaffe bombers devastate Warsaw and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals killed, or stolen away to Berlin, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski begin smuggling Jews into the empty cages.As the war escalates Jan becomes increasingly involved in the anti-Nazi resistance. Ammunition is buried in the elephant enclosure and explosives stored in the animal hospital. Plans are prepared for what will become the Warsaw uprising. Through the ever-present fear of discovery, Antonina must keep her unusual household afloat, caring for both its human and animal inhabitants - otters, a badger, hyena pups, lynxes - as Europe crumbles around them.Written with the narrative drive and emotional punch of a novel, The Zookeeper's Wife is a remarkable true story. It shows us the human and personal impact of war - of life in the Warsaw Ghetto, of fighting in the anti-Nazi resistance. But more than anything it is a story of decency and sacrifice triumphing over terror and oppression. What readers are saying about The Zookeeper's Wife: 'Beautifully and sensitively written - a must read''An adventure that inspires''Both horrifying and endearing on a scale I've not experienced in years''A story that will haunt you forever''Haunting, life affirming, sad, and inspiring'

Texts From Dog

October Jones
Authors:
October Jones

In April 2012, English animator Joe Butcher discovered he could send text messages to HIMSELF on his mobile phone. Naturally, Butcher decided that the best use for this feature would be to send passive aggressive messages to his fictional alter ego October Jones, under the guise of Cooper, his British Bulldog. A classic tale of Man & Dog for the gadget driven internet generation.After taking screenshots of his canine conversations, Butcher posted them to his 10,000 Twitter followers, then created a Tumblr, which attracted over 80,000 followers in a month. Now the further exploits of Dog and his weary owner have been brought together in this hilarious book, which includes over 100 texts not seen on the website.

Keeping Up With Magda

Isla Dewar
Authors:
Isla Dewar

In the Scottish fishing village of Mareth, everyone knows everything about each other - and what they don't know they assume; the villagers live against a constantly changing backdrop of elaborate scheming and sexual innuendo. At the hub of this world is the Ocean Cafe, run by tousle-haired, forty-something Magda, who makes grown men eat their greens, won't serve customers she doesn't like, and loves her children and their father with a passion. When Jessie Tate, devastated by recent tragedy, rents the flat above the cafe in an escape from the city, her dream of peace and solitude is shattered by the rock 'n' roll music that thuds through her floor. But perhaps a dose of life in an intimate, colourful and utterly self-absorbed community is just what Jessie needs to break free of her ghosts...
