An absolute treat full of warmth and romance' - Alex Brown, author of The Secret of Orchard Cottage A wonderful, heart-warming Christmas novel from Chrissie Manby, perfect for curling up with in front of the fire. What could be more magical at Christmas than a fairy tale come true? It's the festive season and the members of the Newbay Theatre Society, more commonly known as the NEWTS, are preparing to put on a show. Being cast as Cinderella is the realization of a dream for newcomer Kirsty, not least because she hopes starring in a panto under the direction of her boyfriend Jon will bring them closer together. But Kirsty soon learns that it's not all glitter and good cheer behind the scenes at the amateur theatre as bitter rivalries nurtured through decades, wardrobe mishaps and suspicious near-fatal accidents threaten to derail the production. And then there's Prince Charming himself. Will working together with Jon bring Kirsty her happy ever after... or reveal their love to be nothing but a 'showmance'? With Christmas just around the corner, it's going to take more than a Fairy Godmother to get Kirsty and her cast-mates to the ball.

Trent Tucker, the protagonist of this hilarious satire, hates reality TV. Unfortunately, his job at Nova Consulting involves the creation of new reality shows that are even more outrageous and excessive than those now on television. Surrounded by colleagues who could easily be characters in the own reality show—dumb blonde, angry black man, flamboyant homosexual, frosty bitch, fast-talking Sicilian and their megalomaniacal boss, P.T. Beauregard—Trent's immersion is complete. The characters in Reality: the novel, behave a lot like their television counterparts as they bicker with each other incessantly, backstab their co-workers, find themselves on a deserted island and become involved in a murder plot—all good, clean fun that mimics the fantasy lives they feverishly try to create for their anxious network clients.

Winner of the French-American Foundation Translation Prize for Nonfiction Jean Gu?henno's Diary of the Dark Years, 1940-1945 is the most oft-quoted piece of testimony on life in occupied France. A sharply observed record of day-to-day life under Nazi rule in Paris and a bitter commentary on literary life in those years, it has also been called "a remarkable essay on courage and cowardice" (Caroline Moorehead, Wall Street Journal). Here, David Ball provides not only the first English-translation of this important historical document, but also the first ever annotated, corrected edition. Gu?henno was a well-known political and cultural critic, left-wing but not communist, and uncompromisingly anti-fascist. Unlike most French writers during the Occupation, he refused to pen a word for a publishing industry under Nazi control. He expressed his intellectual, moral, and emotional resistance in this diary: his shame at the Vichy government's collaboration with Nazi Germany, his contempt for its falsely patriotic reactionary ideology, his outrage at its anti-Semitism and its vilification of the Republic it had abolished, his horror at its increasingly savage repression and his disgust with his fellow intellectuals who kept on blithely writing about art and culture as if the Occupation did not exist - not to mention those who praised their new masters in prose and poetry. Also a teacher of French literature, he constantly observed the young people he taught, sometimes saddened by their conformism but always passionately trying to inspire them with the values of the French cultural tradition he loved. Gu?henno's diary often includes his own reflections on the great texts he is teaching, instilling them with special meaning in the context of the Occupation. Complete with meticulous notes and a biographical index, Ball's edition of Gu?henno's epic diary offers readers a deeper understanding not only of the diarist's cultural allusions, but also of the dramatic, historic events through which he lived.

ACCLAIM FOR GLORY KEVERNES A MAN CANNOT CRY. A PEOPLE magazines Top Ten Book of the Year in America. A BOOKSELLERS Most Promising Title in Britain. A MAN CANNOT CRY is the finest first novel I have ever handled (including THE COLLECTOR by John Fowles, and THE WATER IS WIDE by Pat Conroy). Close to 50 years in publishing as a writer, editor and agent and I have never heard such a story of how a relatively uneducated girl of eighteen in a little copper mining town in Northern Rhodesia, married to a miner, began a powerful first novel of 500,000 words (before cutting), and spent years writing it under the most amazing circum- stances. I have never been as overwhelmed by a first novel. She is simply a born story teller. Julian Bach, New York Agent and a former editor of LIFE magazine. Gloria, you have a wonderful novel here. It moved me to tears and its editing has been a labor of love for me. A Man Cannot Cry has given me great pleasure and I thank you for it. Eventually the world will too. Hillel Black, William Morrow, USA. This excellent novel is an African answer to THE THORN BIRDS. With first rate characterization and an unusual and ingenious plot, the combination of Africa, the Quaker settlement and medicine, is exceptionally good. P Parkin, HarperCollins, UK. A MAN CANNOT CRY pulses with the life of Northern Rhodesia and all Africa besides. The story begins in 1958 with the arrival of Dr Than Profane at a Quaker mission to see his dying father. He does not intend to stay but before long he is taking Africa like a drug and thriving like cut grass growing wild He quickly earns the affectionate name Bwana Cowboy. His methods and sometimes his morals are characteristically American, rough-hewn, deaf to both danger and defeat Inevitably he clashes with his conservative hosts. But he does much better with the local tribes there is a wonderful passage where he is trained as a witchdoctor and some of the books finest characters, lovingly portrayed, are African The book is alive with people, places, and their interactions: births and deaths in squalid hut and shiny hospital, cruel savages and a tame leopard; the glory of a canoe trip on the Zambezi and a white man dressing as a witchdoctor to fight a smallpox epidemic; and in the background the murmuring voices of a changing Africa, Lumumba, Tshombe, Kasavubu, Kaunda. A MAN CANNOT CRY dramatizes all the conflicts and parallels between the white world and the black, the old Africa and the new, the familiar and the alien, the uncertain fears of the mind and the sure knowledge of the heart. Long, rich and detailed, it is a wonderful book. Alan Ryan, THE WASHINGTON POST. An enormous array of human emotion is

The police said it was an accident, the dead woman's sister said it was murder... and that she knew who did it. Nameless isn't certain, but the more he learns about Nancy Mathias's life, the more inclined he is to accept the likelihood of murder--especially as the players still alive become more and more distasteful. Combine that with the situation Jake Runyon, one of the agency's partners, is facing as he searches for a young man who is either a murderer or a victim, and life at their San Francisco detective agency has everyone on edge.

Bestselling author Sharyn McCrumb, internationally acclaimed for the "quiet fire"* of her Appalachian Ballad novels, clearly has a dark side--a wicked, sardonic wit that has prompted critics to compare her to Jane Austen and Jonathan Swift. Readers and reviewers alike also have lauded Ms. McCrumb for her inspired chronicles of forensic anthropologist Elizabeth MacPherson. In her newest tale in the MacPherson saga, McCrumb examines society's fascination with beauty--and the deceptiveness of outer appearances. Elizabeth herself, hospitalized for depression over her missing husband, learns that insanity liberates one from polite hypocrisy, enabling a "crazy lady" to remark: "Anorexia is not a disease; it's a career move." Out in the real world, Elizabeth's brother Bill has bought a stately old mansion to use as his law office, only to find that the house comes with a charming codger-in-residence who is far too old to be a dangerous outlaw. . . isn't he? Meanwhile, the steel magnolia who is Bill's law partner is trying to track down the PMS Outlaws--an escaped convict and her fugitive attorney--who are cruising pickup joints and wreaking a peculiar vengeance on lust-crazed men. Sharyn McCrumb's incisive wit and her genius for mirroring everyday life are once again on full display. The PMS Outlaws is an outrageous parable of modern mores, where beauty is the weapon, and nobody is safe. *The New York Times Book Review From the Paperback edition.
