    A collection of some of the finest words of wisdom from the president of the United States of America. Whether you are a card-carrying member of the NRA and fully-committed QAnon believer that will help Make America Great Again or a Bernie pinky that still believes Hillary is the true President in exile, this book of Trumpisms is something you should carry with you at all times. These words of back-combed wisdom will either be your bible, codified gems of genius that help you make sense of this brave new world, or they will be infuriating examples of embarrassing ignorance that form the backbone of your argument as to why this enigma should never have become leader of the free world. Either way, you cannot argue that there is no one like Trump. This is Trump in his own words, how he sees the world and some of the people that inhabit it. We have picked the best of the bunch for you.  Go forth wall builders. Enjoy.

    The only thing worse than
    waking up with the hangover from hell
    is waking up with a hangover in hell
    When literary reprobate Foster James wakes up in a strange country house, he assumes he's been consigned to rehab (yet again). But when he gets punched in the face by Ernest Hemingway, he realises there's something different about this place...
    Is Foster dead? Has his less-than-saintly existence finally caught up with him? After a hostile group therapy session with Hunter S. Thompson, William Burroughs and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, it seems likely. But he still feels alive, especially after he gets laid by Dorothy Parker.
    When he discovers that the two enigmatic doctors who run the institution are being torn apart by a thwarted love affair, he and the other writers must work together to save something bigger than their own gigantic egos.
    Set in a place that's part Priory, part Purgatory, Dead Writers in Rehab is a darkly funny tale about the strange and terrible entanglement of creativity and addiction, told by a charming, selfish bastard.

    An absorbing and often hilarious account of the author's 12 years as closeted cabin crew for British Airways.  It's a story of love, creativity and acceptance, the transformative power of lesbian love and more.  Told with the wit and verve that characterised her debut novel, Karen's memoir of flying as cabin crew offers a fascinating insight into the profound impact of long-haul life.  Having come out as a lesbian she is forced to go back in as colleagues advise her that it is not ok to be gay, unlike male cabin crew. Brimming with vertiginous loops and extreme globe-trotting, against a backdrop of exotic locations, hotel bars and nightclubs, Karen slowly unravels as the inability to truly be herself reverberates. This is the story of how Karen finally came into land. How she learned to look after herself and discovered her true strength.
