Summary

Picking up where he left off in My Booky Wook, movie star and comedian Russell Brand details his rapid climb to fame and fortune in a shockingly candid, resolutely funny, and unbelievably electrifying tell-all: Booky Wook 2. Brand’s performances in Arthur, Get Him to the Greek, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall have earned him a place in fans’ hearts; now, with a drop of Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, a dash of Tommy Lee’s Dirt, and a spoonful of Nikki Sixx’s The Heroin Diaries, Brand goes all the way—exposing the mad genius behind the audacious comic we all know (or think we know) and love (or at least, lust).

    Bombs, bullets and the remote jungle - and America's coolest covert agent Jake Fonko is up to his neck in it all. 
    Army Ranger Jake Fonko's latest mission - locate a former CIA asset gone missing in Cambodia - has his instincts on full alert. He might be a decorated soldier, but he's certainly no international spy. 
    But Jake, ever the loyal warrior, agrees to the CIA's directive. But no sooner has he crossed the border into Phnom Penh when the bloodthirsty Khmer Rouge roars into town. And as Jake fights to survive in the jungle warzone, the dots begin to connect, all pointing to a startling truth. 
    Maybe that CIA asset was never really missing at all. 
    For fans of fun, fast-moving adventures, the Jake Fonko series seamlessly blends well-researched 20th century history with equal parts white-knuckle thrills, satirical humor and explosive action. If you like Ian Fleming (Bond), John D. MacDonald (Travis McGee), George MacDonald Fraser (Flashman) or Clive Cussler (Dirk Pitt), you'll enjoy the Jake Fonko series.   
    NOTE: This is a standalone novel that can be fully enjoyed without reading any other books in the Jake Fonko series.

    At the end of his tether, a writer travels to Key West with his wife. She’s hoping to cheer him up, but he’s hoping for something more fatal . . .Every schoolboy in America knows the work of Wilkie Walker. A pioneering naturalist, he won fame and fortune with his accessible nature books. But by the time he turns seventy, his renown is nearly gone. Late at night, he sits up torturing himself with fears that his career was a waste, his talent is gone, and his body is shot through with cancer. His wife, Jenny, twenty-five years younger than Wilkie, can tell only that he is out of sorts. She has no idea her husband is on the verge of giving up on life.  When Jenny suggests spending the winter in Key West, Wilkie goes along with it. After all, if you need to plan a fatal “accident,” Florida is a perfectly good place to do so. And when they touch down in the sunshine state, the Walkers find it’s not too late to live life—or end it—however they damn well please.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alison Lurie including rare images from the author’s collection.

    The New York Times–bestselling parody of Voltaire’s Candide that was banned in France and went on to become a salacious cult classic. Candy is a perfect, idealistic, innocent girl, born on Valentine’s Day, which, her daddy says, is why she’s so beautiful. At college in Racine, Wisconsin, she listens earnestly to Professor Mephisto’s lecture on philosophy and how “deep and aching are the needs of man”—and takes his pronouncement to heart. She will dedicate the rest of her days to bringing the sweet balm of her warmth to all those lonely men on her arduous path to spiritual enlightenment—a hunchback, a crazed gynecologist in a bar bathroom, her father’s lecherous twin brother, her guru at the nutty Cracker Foundation . . . It is in Tibet, during an earthquake, that Candy will finally find full . . . enlightenment. This rollicking tale, by a duo of authors including the legendary Dr. Strangelove screenwriter who also wrote for Saturday Night Live and toured with the Rolling Stones over the course of his colorful career, is, in the words of William Styron, “wickedly funny to read and morally bracing as only good satire can be.”This ebook features an illustrated biography of Terry Southern including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate and an extended biography of Mason Hoffenberg.

    New York Times Bestseller: This anthology of Erma Bombeck’s most memorable and humorous essays is a tribute to one of America’s sharpest wits. When she began writing her regular newspaper column in 1965, Erma Bombeck’s goal was to make housewives laugh. Thirty years later, she had published more than four thousand columns, and earned countless laughs—from housewives, presidents, and everyone in between. With grace, good humor, and razor-sharp prose, she gently skewered every aspect of the American family. This collection holds the best of her columns—not just her famous quips, but also the heartbreaking observations that gave her writing such weight. In 1969, Erma wrote: “screaming kids, unpaid bills, green leftovers, husbands behind newspapers, basketballs in the bathroom. They’re real . . . they’re warm . . . they’re the only bit of normalcy left in this cockeyed world, and I’m going to cling to it like life itself.” With what Publishers Weekly calls her “infectious sense of human absurdity,” Erma Bombeck’s writing remains a timeless examination of the still-cockeyed world. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
