"Memoirs of an Ordinary Man" is a humorous, and often irreverant, record of the life of the Author. It is told from his early years, growing up in London in the 1950's as the son of a motor mechanic, through his time as an officer in the Merchant Navy, to his years as a senior figure in the financial services industry. If you think memoirs are dull affairs, think again. This book will appeal equally to those who grew up in the same period and like to reminisce; to those who would like to learn the truth about the "good old days" and what they were really like; and to those who simply like to enjoy a good story that makes them smile. Reading this without grinning is as difficult as eating that famous fruit pastille without chewing! A brief extract...."The kitchen was an interesting place, with lime green painted walls and a coal cellar (which wasn't a cellar at all, but a cupboard) opening out right next to the cooker. When the coal man (not very P.C, but that was his title, and I can't remember any coal ladies hunking hundredweight sacks of nutty slack in on their shoulders) delivered the coal, it was tipped from a sack straight into this floor-level cupboard and great balls of black soot would gush out into the kitchen like a pyroclastic cloud. This would be deposited on the cooker, the floor, and anything else in a ten-foot radius. As the kitchen wasn't more than twelve feet, this meant just about everything. Opposite the cooker and sink was the toilet, which I suppose was quite useful as you could hear if things were boiling over as you sat there. And then there was the floor standing hand mangle, used to dry clothes before they were hung out on the line. This fascinated me as I watched the water pour out of clothes which went in as a thick wedge and came out almost paper thin. I had occasional dark thoughts about what would happen if you put small creatures like our white mice through, although I'm pleased to say these thoughts never developed into the full experimentation stage."

A remarkable account of the amazing life story of the man who inspired the film Hotel Rwanda Readers who were moved and horrified by Hotel Rwanda will respond even more intensely to Paul Rusesabagina’s unforgettable autobiography. As Rwanda was thrown into chaos during the 1994 genocide, Rusesabagina, a hotel manager, turned the luxurious Hotel Milles Collines into a refuge for more than 1,200 Tutsi and moderate Hutu refugees, while fending off their would-be killers with a combination of diplomacy and deception. In An Ordinary Man, he tells the story of his childhood, retraces his accidental path to heroism, revisits the 100 days in which he was the only thing standing between his “guests” and a hideous death, and recounts his subsequent life as a refugee and activist. From the Trade Paperback edition.

We all have a book inside us and a story to tell. Heading for eighty and still only partly retired, Roy is no exception. He starts off as a scholarship boy at Manchester Grammar School at the beginning of World War Two. After a stint in the Civil Service, conscription into the Army and life as a tea planter in India, he eventually becomes a salesman. Roy progresses right up to managing director, before suddenly jacking it all in at the age of 59, waving goodbye to his mystified family and backpacking round France while he 'gets his head straight'. Returning to England, Roy is ready for the next challenge. He is soon busier than ever, with a variety of jobs, including manufacturer's agent, toastmaster and masseur. Heading for the next decade, Roy shows no signs of retiring yet. He says: Life's still good, and far better than the alternative.

This is my story formally entitled On The Edge (Changed due to problems with publishing) as I remember it now at the age of 64, when I started this story. I also feel lucky to have survived both the second world war and the few health problems I have suffered, when many of my friends and relations have succumbed to the 'Grim Reaper'. Also I have changed many of the names to protect the innocent and to stop the guilty from trying to sue me. On second thoughts a court case would give me much needed publicity. So I think I will name and shame or praise as the case may be, and to hell with it.

While untold hardship and plagues affect the villagers in the remotest of rural areas, the culture of the West mingles unevenly with the indigenous African culture to brew its own special brand of pestilence. The human desire for riches and advancement clashes with traditional rites and taboos, to simmer in a rich steamy pot of betrayal and intrigue. Njeleulem is an introvert. He values friendship. He has a high standard of ethics. He holds steadfastly to his communal beliefs. His friends mistake his integrity for cowardice and weakness. Aware that yesterday's friends have decayed into today's scoffers, he reacts with confusion and bitterness. Ngarbel, the first friend to betray him, places impediments in Njeleulem's path at every opportunity during their parallel careers. The two, once good school friends, face each other in deep hostility from their positions as top managers for powerful organizations. Njeleulem's harsh childhood shapes his personality and eventually, his ruin. Ngarbel is rude and aggressive to the core, much like his volatile father. This fictional story ends with Njeleulem's suicide. The pressures on him have become too much to bear for one so sensitive and moral. His ultimate retaliation consists of inducing heartfelt remorse in Ngarbel, who went insane and had his wife Dembede leave him as a result.
