Flight Risk

The Highs and Lows of Life as a Doctor at Heathrow Airport

By Stephanie Green

  • Hardback
  • £18.99

A candid insight into the exhilarating drama of life and work as one of Heathrow airport's on-site doctors.

An exhilarating insight into the life of a doctor at Heathrow Airport, where the truth is often stranger than fiction.

For over a decade, Stephanie Green was a doctor on-call for one of the world's busiest airports, confronting dramatic, bizarre and sometimes heart-breaking situations. During her 24-hour shifts at Heathrow, Dr Green had to be ready for anything: from finding an abandoned suitcase leaking blood onto the carousel, to discovering a man smuggling heroin in a corset.

It's a job that brought her into contact with all walks of life; her patients included drug mules and fugitives, schizophrenics and stowaways, refugees and tourists. And with the threats of a nerve agent poisoning or a Level Four viral epidemic always in the back of her mind, Dr Green found herself on the frontline where the decisions are made about who - or what - was allowed to leave the airport's borders.

FLIGHT RISK reveals the thrilling drama that takes place behind-the-scenes of an airport and what is needed to make critical decisions in this hidden no-man's land of geopolitics, terror, tragedy and medicine.

Biographical Notes

Dr. Stephanie Green holds an MA in Biological Anthropology from Downing College, Cambridge, and a BM (Bachelor of Medicine) from Southampton University.

She now runs her own consultancy business, and her various roles include Consulting Doctor for Marie Stopes International and Medical Member of the Independent Family Returns Panel for the Home Office. Dr Green lives with her husband, Chris, their two sons, and Reggie the Flat-Coated Retriever, in Monmouthshire, U.K.

Finding My Voice

Nadiya Hussain
Authors:
Nadiya Hussain

'I am their daughter. They are me. I am my Baba's stubborn back bone and his great brows. I am my mum's resilience and wide birthing hips. I am their profanity, their nerves, I am their traditions, their hang ups, their loss, their tears. I am their human, their child, their daughter.' Born to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Nadiya Hussain's first roles were those of daughter and sister. Considering her later roles as a devout Muslim entering an arranged marriage and becoming a wife and mother herself, Nadiya questions the barriers that many women, no matter who they are or where they live, have to cross in order to be accepted or heard. Importantly, she shows us how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues throughout our lives despite our cultural, social and religious differences.Each chapter deals with a different role, and Nadiya writes with warmth, humour, honesty and deep emotion about what each one means to her and how she embodies all the different expectations of these roles in her life. Writing about growing up in a large family, who were culturally torn between two countries, to her thoughts on becoming a celebrity, after winning The Great British Bake Off, the later chapters cover her more recent roles of 'baker', 'Twitter handle' and 'TV presenter'.

Confessions of a Single Mum

Amy Nickell
Authors:
Amy Nickell

When Amy Nickell left university, she managed to nab herself a real life paid job as a celebrity reporter in London town. She literally got paid to ask Robert Downey Junior out for Nando's, while living with her gay best friend, their Harry Styles cardboard cutout and their pet toad, Snoop Frog, and drank prosecco way before it was in fashion. Things were good, they were fun, they definitely weren't serious. However, that life took a very grown up, very serious detour when Amy found herself expecting the unexpected and pregnant age 24. Pregnant and without a boyfriend. And so her life took on an altogether new direction...Here in Confessions of a Single Mum, Amy debunks single mum myths, delves into the world of dating (nothing ruins sexy sofa snogging ambience like the watchful eye of Daddy Pig), going back to work just ten days after giving birth, lactating WAY too close to Simon Cowell, as well answering the questions that come with having a family that is anything but nuclear.Amy's wonderfully frank, honest and hilarious story will inspire other parents to own their single status as well as anyone whose life has thrown them a curveball.

Rich Cohen enters the Stones epic as a young journalist on the road with the band and quickly falls under their sway - privy to the jokes, the camaraderie, the bitchiness, the hard living. Inspired by a lifelong appreciation of the music that borders on obsession, Cohen's chronicle of the band is informed by the rigorous views of a kid who grew up on the music and for whom the Stones will always be the greatest rock 'n' roll band of all time.(P)2016 Random House Audio

Five Quarters

Rachel Roddy
Authors:
Rachel Roddy

Rachel Roddy's Five Quarters won the Guild of Food Writers' First Book award and the André Simon Food Book award 2015.'Five Quarters stands out as particularly considered and evocative...Impeccably researched and transportive, it's a proper read, rather than a quick flick.' AA Gill, Sunday Times best cookbooks 2015'Of course I thought Rome was glorious, but I didn't want to stay. A month, three at most, then I'd take a train back to Sicily to finish the clockwise journey I'd interrupted, before moving even further southwards...'Instead, captivated by the exhilarating life of Testaccio, the wedge-shaped quarter of Rome that centres round the old slaughterhouse and the bustling food market, Rachel decided to rent a flat and live there. Thus began an Italian adventure that's turned into a brand new life. Five Quarters charts a year in Rachel's small kitchen, shopping, cooking, eating and writing, capturing a uniquely domestic picture of life in this vibrant, charismatic city. Combining Rachel's love of Italian food and cooking with a strong nostalgia for home and memories of growing up in England, this is a cookbook to read in bed as well as to use in the kitchen.Chapters:AntipastiSoup & PastaMeat & FishVegetablesDolci
