Say Ja to Hygge!

Dr Magnus Olsensen
Authors:
Dr Magnus Olsensen

'Dr Magnus Olsensen has done the decent thing. He has punctured the smug hygge bubble. He has written a parody of hygge and he has blown out all the flipping candles.' The Times 'a hilarious pastiche of the hygge phenomenon...the cool humour gift book of 2016' Get The GlossThis little book of hygge came about after a particularly hyggeligt evening in December 2015. I had just lit my pleasing contemporary wood-burner and was sitting back, gløgg in hand, listening to Terj Dørk's classic drøn jazz album "Tepid in Taarstrup'. I found myself reflecting on the fact that we are the World's Happiest PeopleT. Wasn't it time, I thought, we shared our secret? I immediately called around three of the Institute of Wellbeing's brightest young researchers: Freja, Olaf and Sofia. We sat together snug in my pure wool foursie, bathed on soft fire-light, and talked long into the evening. The idea came over us unexpectedly. We would publish a book, explaining hygge for the betterment of all mankind. I'm delighted that we have succeeded. And I hope our efforts will help you to find your own hygge-topia. Held og lykke!"Dr Magnus OlsensenDirector, Institute of Wellbeing, Aarhus***The Danish hygge (pronounced 'huhhpg-ghuhrr') lifestyle is all about feeling snug, safe, warm and satisfied - ideally self-satisfied.But how should you go about finding your special cosy place?Let Dr Magnus Olsensen be your guide to finding hygge in every area of your life - from the office to the bedroom. Hygge is derived from the Old Norse words hig, meaning cosy, and ger, meaning fire hazard. It is, in essence, a state of mind. (One that is heavily dependent on candles.) For some, achieving hygge will come easily. Others may have to work a little harder. But if you put in the hours - and follow the guidance in Say Ja to Hygge! - you will find your own hygge-topia. You will have become, in spirit, Danish. And - as the old song goes - there is nothing like a Dane!This truly hilarious send-up of hygge culture is a work of timely comic genius.

Alan Stoob: Nazi Hunter

Saul Wordsworth
Authors:
Saul Wordsworth

'A creation of comic genius.' Jon Ronson'Alan Stoob is to Nazis what Inspector Clouseau is to jewel thieves. He's a marvellous comic creation, and deserves his own series of movies.' - Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat. 'The human story at the heart of the diaries...is tragically comic amid the increasingly surreal plot.' - The TimesAlan Stoob, hero of this hilarious novel has been described as a new member of the great pantheon of British comic characters - genus awkward old bastard - that already includes Mr Micawber, Mr Pooter and Captain Mainwairing.Originally a Twitter sensation, whose fans include India Knight and Dara O'Brien, he now walks the pages of this book finding Nazi conspirators in the most mundane surroundings. Into a very ordinary, domestic setting comes world famous Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, who invites Alan to take on responsibilities for hunting Nazis in hiding in the county of Bedfordshire.Alan agrees and finds that wherever he looks he sees evidence of Nazi conspiracy and he begins to follow a trail of evidence that leads him to members of the UK Cabinet and even the President of the United States.

Thistle Versus Rose

Albert Jack
Authors:
Albert Jack

'It is tremendously good fun winding up the Scots. It is terribly easy, particularly Scottish politicians. They can take things far too seriously.' Jeremy Paxman* It's 700 years since England fought Scotland at the Battle of Bannockburn. Miraculously - we still don't understand how - the Scots actually won. It's pretty much the only time they've ever beaten us at anything. So has there ever been a better opportunity to celebrate seven centuries of winding up the Scots?Exploring everything from food, class, the empire and the weather to language, love and landscape, Thistle vs Rose is a hilarious miscellany of Anglo-Scots rivalry. Introduced by bestselling popular historian Albert Jack, it features quotes, jokes and trivia from Stephen Fry, Bill Bryson, Jimmy Carr, George Mikes, Michael McIntyre and many, many others.* published alongside Susan's Morrison's rival Ebook 700 YEARS OF WINDING UP THE ENGLISH (9781473604933) *

This Thirtysomething Life

Jon Rance
Authors:
Jon Rance

A romantic comedy for anyone who is, has been or is ever likely to be a grown up.Being a thirtysomething man isn't easy (especially when you still yearn to be a twentysomething man). Meet Harry Spencer. History teacher, lover of snack food and terrified of growing up. However, when his wife Emily drops the P-Bomb, Harry is suddenly thrust into the role of expectant father. When he's tempted by the greener grass of an ex-girlfriend past, Harry has to make the most important decision of his life. Does he have what it takes to become a man, or will he succumb to the lure of adolescent fantasy?This is a love story about what happens after we've fallen in love, when we've swapped frolicking in the bed for cigarettes in the shed and Match of the Day for Mothercare. Brutally honest, laugh-out-loud funny and heart-warming, this is a diary about one man's bumbling journey on the road to adulthood.Visit Jon's website at www.jonrance.com or follow him on Twitter @JRance75.
