Summary

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.

    At the age of twenty-one, Prince Philip wrote to a relative: 'I know you will never think much of me. I am rude and unmannerly.' Prince Philip probably never managed to change the opinion of his relative... This affectionate compendium brings together both the best and a host of less well-known stories about the prince, giving an insight into the royal world where he 'traipses around' as a 'fella who belongs to Mrs Queen', rather than being 'professionally qualified in something'. From Prince Philip's blunt speech making, to his fearless mocking of officials and captains of industry, to his fond teasing of Her Majesty herself, here is a truly regal celebration of the unusual daily life in royal circles.

    Laughter Is the Best Medicine -...

    Brevity is the soul and wit of this publication; however, the medical industry is the largest and most complex combination of human resources ever assembled, earning it a status well worth writing about. Certain epigrams are gentle and subtle, and others quite caustic, but all contain some form of social or scientific commentary. If the reader has a morbid sense of humor, this book will be especially enjoyed.

    There is a land – let's call it Elsewhere – that is in no small amount of trouble. Giant wolves are tearing villages apart, a monster king is bringing his army across the sea to capture the legendary Hall of Glass, and the High Lord has completely disappeared. 
     
    Henry Whistler was eight when he got lost at a bus station in Hounslow. There his adventure began. For that was when he met the exiled invisible man, the monster swordsman, and the girl with the bright red hair. 
     
    Now a grown-up, Henry's childhood adventure is a faded memory... until his fiancée vanishes. Until he is drawn into another world. Until he is pursued by a blind assassin – with only a monster and a dead man for company - across a land that is in no small amount of trouble.

    Angus:My mixed-breed cat, half domestic tabby, half Scottish wildcat. The size of a small Labrador, only mad. 
    Thongs:Stupid underwear. What's the point of them, anyway? They just go up your bum, as far as I can tell. 
    Full-Frontal Snogging:Kissing with all the trimmings, lip to lip, open mouth, tongues ... everything. 
    Her dad's got the mentality of a Teletubby (only not so developed). Her cat, Angus, is trying to eat the poodle next door. And her best friend thinks she looks like an alien -- just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Ergghhhlack. Still, add a little boy-stalking, teacher-baiting, and full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, and Georgia's year just might turn out to be the most fabbitty fab fab ever!
