Summary

Herbert George Jenkins' 'Mrs. Bindle: Some Incidents from the Domestic Life of the Bindles' is a charming portrayal of the domestic life of the working-class Bindle family in early 20th century England. Jenkins' writing style is characterized by a subtle blend of humor and social commentary, making this book both entertaining and thought-provoking. Through a series of vignettes, Jenkins explores the everyday struggles and joys of Mrs. Bindle, a strong-willed matriarch, and her family, shedding light on the life of the lower classes during this period. The book is a delightful reflection of the social realism literary movement of the time. Herbert George Jenkins, a prolific writer in the early 20th century, drew inspiration for 'Mrs. Bindle' from his own observations of working-class life in London. Jenkins' keen eye for detail and his ability to capture the nuances of everyday life make this book a compelling read for anyone interested in the social history of the era. I highly recommend 'Mrs. Bindle: Some Incidents from the Domestic Life of the Bindles' to readers who enjoy insightful and humorous depictions of domestic life, as well as those interested in the social dynamics of early 20th century England.

    A love story in the slow lane about loss and getting lost—two childhood sweethearts take a trip via pints, ponds and pitstops to find their future on a road less travelled from Stoke-on-Trent to WalesApparently, we spend almost two weeks of our life completely lost. If you add up all the times you take a wrong turn or find yourself somewhere you don't want to be, it equates to fourteen days of essentially being missing.One Monday afternoon, around three o'clock, pond supplies salesman Selwyn Robby arrives home towing the Toogood Aquatics exhibition caravan and orders his like-wife, Imogen 'Ginny' Dare, to get into the car. He's taking her on a little holiday, he says. To Wales. So begins their road trip west, via blasts from Selwyn's past, and a fortnight's journey of self-discovery for them both. But it's a fishy business towing this caravan, with its saucy mermaid curtains and fully stocked bar, and Ginny must untangle the pondweed to get to the bottom of it, even it does mean unearthing her own murky past to find out.

    A quest, a war, a ring that would be grounds for calling any wedding off, a king without a kingdom, and a furry little "hero" named Frito, ready—or maybe just forced by the wizard Goodgulf—to undertake the one mission that can save Lower Middle Earth from enslavement by the evil Sorhed. Luscious Elf-maidens, a roller-skating dragon, ugly plants that can soul kiss the unwary to death—these are just some of the ingredients in the wildest, wackiest, most irreverent excursion into fantasy realms that anyone has ever dared to undertake.For everyone who has delighted in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy masterwork—or anyone who's just looking for a good laugh—Bored of the Rings is the "all-in-one-volume" comic extravaganza that will convince lovers and haters of fantasy that they've finally experienced it all, and that they'll never need to read another fantasy parody again.

    The first anthology of the beloved comic strip that inspired the critically acclaimed Cartoon Network show. In 1999, Aaron McGruder launched a cultural phenomenon with his smart and bitingly satirical comic strip, The Boondocks. It centers on the experiences of two young African-American boys, Huey and Riley, who move from inner-city Chicago to the suburbs (or the "boondocks" to them). The strip fuses hip-hop sensibilities with Japanese anime-style drawings and a candid discussion of race. In this first collection of Boondocks cartoons, you'll discover the funny yet revealing combination of superb art and envelope-pushing content in one of the most unique strips ever.

    “If you ask me, reliving my time with Bad Breath Seth and Potty Scotty is worth the cover price alone.” —USAToday.com 
     
    “A wonderfully designed tribute to these shit-disturbing cards in all their graphic, full-color glory.” —ComicsBeat.com 
     
     “There’s a lot of interesting stuff in Spiegel man’s intro, and in the afterward by John Pound, the artist who originated and drew the bulk of the Kids. But the real reason to buy this book is for the graphic brilliance of the art itself.” —Boston Phoenix

    Scotland’s Jesus: The Only...

    Reading Scotland's Jesus should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain. 
    It's a funny book about the news, partly because it was decided that a pornographic book about Scottish Independence wouldn't really sell. In chapters ranging from International Politics to the Animal World, ‘Scotland's Jesus’ is allowed the opportunity to showcase his increasingly unsympathetic worldview and disintegrating psyche. 
    A torrent of jokes about recent events provide the framework for a broader philosophical despair. Frankie Boyle uses the stories of the popular press as a springboard to explain the nature of reality and the details of our enslavement to mirthless corporate Warlocks. 
    Frankie Boyle, the Sunday Times bestselling author, continues to prove why he is at the top of his game with Scotland's Jesus. His humour, sharp as ever, cuts through the noise of the news, making this book a bestseller. 
    For fans of Louis Theroux (Theroux The Keyhole), Romesh Ranganathan (As Good As It Gets), Charlie Brooker (I Can Make You Hate), Billy Connolly (Rambling Man), and Roddy Doyle (The Second Half).
