Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies

By Nick Frost

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Surprising, frank and darkly funny memoir by a much loved comedy actor and writer.

'If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That to me is a better reflection of a human's life.'

Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.

In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, Fiona Taylor, Carrie Wittmer

The pizza delivery car pulls up outside. It's right on time and so, so hot. The delivery guy hands it over with an appropriate smile and says, 'Enjoy, I hope you're not sharing it with anyone if you don't want, I believe everyone is in control of their own bodies and should never be shamed for what they decide to eat or not eat.' He makes no effort to come inside because that would be weird and alarming. I smile and give him a reasonable tip for his normal behaviour as I shut the door.Time for The Crown.Your boss recognises your talents, the plumber just wants to fix your pipes, the pizza delivery guy hopes you've got a box-set to watch with your extra-large pizza. Welcome to the equal opportunities world of erotica. Prepare to be dazzled.New Erotica for Feminists is a subversive and wickedly funny response to #metoo, Time's Up and evolving attitudes worldwide to power, sex and gender. It's the perfect satirical stocking filler for the equal opportunities bedroom and the feminist in your household.

Forever Outnumbered

Simon Hooper
Authors:
Simon Hooper

'This is the story of my journey into parenthood, from being a 24 year old man-child with no idea of what being a dad involved, to where I find myself today: the single male representative in a household of five women, or in other words, outnumbered. Our house is now known as "the place where silence came to die". It's also where you'll find carpets that are made up of 50% glitter and where there are more pink stuffed animals than at a colour-blind taxidermy specialists. But I wouldn't change a thing. These people are my life.'From uninitiated parents-to-be to those who know the ropes in families large or small, everyone will find something to relate to in Simon's hilarious and chaotic tales of his own home life. His observations of being a father have delighted his hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram: before now dads are often the forgotten ones who carry the luggage, open stiff jars, take photos on holiday, fix broken bikes, go back to work, do the night feeds and make a mean beans on toast with melted cheese without so much as a pat on the back. All too often dads shrink into the background. But not in this book. Forever Outnumbered is an incredibly funny yet emotionally heartfelt ode to modern family life.

The French Exchange Whale and Other Rejected Book Ideas

'Trust me, you'll be sniggering to yourself so it might be best to not read this on public transport' Writer's Little HelperIt's said that everyone has a book inside them. Cal King doesn't have just one though; he's bursting with ideas for everything from children's books to (in his mind) prize-winning novels.Unfortunately for Cal, his ideas are all a bit silly. However, refusing to be deterred by rejections from publishers and agents (or the laughter of his girlfriend) he managed to secure a meeting at a top publisher and arrived at their London offices with a head full of dreams and a folder full of concepts. At the end of the meeting (during which the editor seemed to have the most terrible cough) it was gently suggested that Cal compile his pitches into a collection of 'terrible book ideas' for the joke book market. Slightly hurt by this suggestion, but driven by a desperate and all-consuming need for approval, he agreed. And here it is . . .

'Personal and engaging . . . anyone who agrees that Star Wars was a defining moment of our collective childhood will love this book' - The Times'Funny and affectionate' - Time Out'Will have you hitching aboard the Millennium Falcon to a galaxy overflowing with infinite possibilities. ****' - Metro*************In 1981, the eight-year-old Bob Fischer was entranced by Daleks, Vogons and crack Imperial Stormtroopers. Almost three decades later, Bob decides to rekindle the affair with a tour of the UK's sci-fi and cult TV conventions. Freewheeling from Doctor Who to Discworld, Star Wars to Star Trek and Robin of Sherwood to Red Dwarf, he combines misty-eyed memories with a terrifying travelogue of terrible, torturous . . . terror. Or something. In space, no one can hear you scream. And don't expect much sympathy in Peterborough, either.
