By Joel Dommett

  • Hardback
  • £16.99

The hilarious bestseller from comedian and I'm A Celeb star Joel Dommett

'Effortless humour and bucketloads of charm. It's impossible not to be bowled over by the ending. Most definitely my favourite celebrity memoir in a long time. Brilliant.' - THE SUN

**The hilarious debut from I'm A Celeb star Joel Dommett (Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Impractical Jokers), for fans of Joe Lycett, James Acaster and Sarah Millican**

As a 17-year-old virgin working . . . for Virgin, Joel Dommett has grand ambitions. Firstly, he is going to swap suburbia for the bright lights of Showbiz. Secondly, he is going to find 'the one' in the first forty people he's going to sleep with.

What follows is a series of disastrous romantic encounters, including carpets mistaken for toilets, futile grand gestures and the catfishing to end all catfishing.

Featuring genuine teenage diary entries and told in Joel's trademark self-deprecating style, this is the brilliant first book from the UK's most exciting comedian.

Biographical Notes

Originally from Gloucestershire, at the age of 19 Joel Dommett moved to London and soon began a stand-up comedy career that would take him all around the globe. He has appeared on Impractical Jokers UK, Russell Howard's Good News, Teenage Kicks and The Crystal Maze. In 2016 he was the runner up on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

Letters From The Suitcase

Cal Finnigan, Rosheen Finnigan
Authors:
Cal Finnigan, Rosheen Finnigan

LETTERS FROM THE SUITCASE reveals the vivid, poignant and hugely detailed wartime correspondence between David and Mary Francis from 1938 to 1943, and a unique love story, sure to appeal to readers of Roald Dahl's LOVE FROM BOY, Sheila Hancock's MISS CARTER'S WAR or Helen Simonson's MAJOR PETTIGREW'S LAST STAND 'I still have that recurring fear of something happening to me before I see you again, and before I can tell you myself just how much and how often I've realised during the last few months that I love you completely and to the exclusion of all others. Remember that, because if there wasn't you, my darling Mary, the world would seem very empty and meaningless.'Mary was only 21 when she met and fell in love with the privately educated 19 year old David in 1938. Their affair was passionate, and in a swing of disgust at their class divide, and the growing rise of fascism and the Nazi party in Europe, they joined the Communist Party. These letters reveal their intelligence and thoughtfulness, details of their lives working as a secretary at Bletchley Park and as a young officer in action on the other side of the world, their marriage against the wishes of David's parents, their sexual desire and longing, and Mary's experience of bringing up a small baby alone. David was to die in India, five years after their meeting, though his letters continued to reach Mary long after the event. At the heart, this is the story of a short but rich, rewarding and colourful love, written with vivacity and honesty. It is also the story of a father that Rosheen Finnigan never knew, and a fascinating social history, utterly unique in the telling.

Jim Obergefell, Debbie Cenziper

Twenty-one years ago when Jim Obergefell walked into a bar in Cincinnatti and sat down next to John Arthur, the man who would become the love of his life, he had no way of knowing that following the sad loss of John to Motor Neurone Disease his fight to have their marriage recognised on John's death certificate would lead him from the courthouses of Cincinnati to the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court and ultimately into the history books. Jim Obergefell is representative of the 32 plaintiffs in the case "Obergefell v Hodges", arguably the biggest civil rights case of our time, which in June this year saw same-sex marriage recognised across every US state. Here Jim teams up with long-time friend and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Debbie Cenziper of The Washington Post to tell his story.LOVE WINS is a legal thriller and love story focused on ordinary people in game-changing circumstances, part Erin Brockovich, part Milk, part Still Alice. It is a story about marriage, grief, courage and the law, but mostly it's about a promise made to a dying man who needed to know that he would be remembered. Through insider accounts and access to key players, LOVE WINS will reveal the dramatic and previously unreported events behind the Supreme Court case that bears Jim's name. The poignant narrative will chronicle how a grieving man and his small-town lawyer, confronted with overwhelming legal, political and personal setbacks, won the most important gay rights case in U.S. history.
