Summary

Join William Brown for more mischief, mayhem and muddles as he gets up to his old tricks in More William, Richmal Compton's second set of classic William adventures, with an introduction by Martin Jarvis. When Aunt Lucy tells William that 'a busy day is a happy day', William does his best to keep himself very busy indeed. Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates his efforts to cheer up Christmas Day – and when a conjuring trick with an egg goes very badly wrong, William finds himself in more trouble than ever! With a fun contemporary cover look illustrated by Rebecca Cobb, along with the original inside illustrations of Thomas Henry, the fourteen fantastic Just William stories in More William are as funny as ever. There is only one William. This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, lovable imp of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922.

    The Beautiful and the Damned

    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s second novel is a cautionary tale of reckless ambition and squandered talent set amid the glitter of Jazz-Age New York.
    
    The novel tells the story of Anthony Patch (a 1920s socialite and presumptive heir to a tycoon's fortune), the relationship with his wife Gloria, his service in the army, and alcoholism. 
    
    At once a morality tale, a meditation on love, money and decadence, and a social document, the novel provides an excellent portrait of the Eastern elite as the Jazz Age begins its ascent, engulfing all classes into what will soon be known as Café Society. As with his other novels, it is a brilliant character study and an early account of the complexities of marriage and intimacy, believed to be largely based on Fitzgerald's relationship and marriage with Zelda Fitzgerald.
