In his masterpiece of family literature, And When Did you Last See Your Father?, Blake Morrison's mother appears as an intriguing but mostly silent figure. This is her startling and touching story - and a son's search to discover the truth about the remarkable Kerry girl who qualified as a doctor in Dublin in 1942, worked in British hospitals throughout the war, and then reinvented herself again to adapt to a quieter post-war family life. At the heart of the book there's a passionate wartime love affair, seen through the frank, funny, furious letters his parents wrote during their courtship. It evokes a surprising picture of life and love in WWII. From the obstacles the lovers faced, to their moments of hilarity and joy Things My Mother Never Told Me is a revealing and poignant anatomy of family conflict, love, war, and finally marriage. Kim Morrison emerges quietly, magically from the shadows, a determined heroine for our times.

Whether we like it or not, not all of God’s creatures are beautiful. With that in mind, David Williams shares a poetic tour of the world’s best loved and most filthy creatures. He celebrates their naughty traits, sympathizes with the animals and their plights, and encourages reflection about their future. Williams, who intersperses wry wit, illustrations, and tongue-in-cheek lessons in his lyrical verse, offers a glimpse into the quirks, habits, and lovable characteristics of a variety of creatures. He shares verses of lovable Labradors, miserable mosquitoes, adorable aardvarks, whimsical wildebeests, a really wild boar, and cheeky chimps. Williams gives a voice to animals both near and far, revealing both the endearing and annoying qualities that highlight each creature’s individuality. Filthy Creatures presents a collection of poetry that is a modern set of Aesop’s fables with a bite or two thrown in.

‘I’m six years old and having a life crisis.’ Are you my mummy?’ is the question I could never ask because I love both my mothers equally: Tyna, the tiny one and Bigga, who is bigger. I haven’t got a daddy either, and it seems rude to ask’. This is a sharp and entertaining true story, beginning in war-torn London, of how the author navigated her way through family passions and oddities, secrets and multiple identities. On the way she encounters a Christmas pudding sent annually care of the Bank of Scotland; sitting on a Tutor’s cat during a Cambridge University interview; running the family corner shop as a school girl; discovering a cache of beautiful postcards from all over Europe; and the seaside wedding of one of her mothers. ‘One of my mothers is has yet another stroke. I’m by her side when the consultant points to a scar on her belly and asks her what it is. Silently she raises her hand and gestures towards me. A Caesarean section all those years ago. I am her daughter. We never speak of it’. ‘After Bigga and Tyna died, I begin a paper trail to find news of my father. One morning I walk across Westminster Bridge to meet a half-sister. I have been an only child for 50 years. Over lunch I discover that I am the sixth of seven siblings born to four women - and I have a famous Swiss grandfather’. The book ends by tackling some questions I’m often asked, such as: Were your mothers lesbians? Does a child need a father? Is the past good for you? Do therapists help?’

This book was written to show my appreciation and gratitude for what my mother taught me as a child. I never knew my father but I was raised by a loving mother, in a loving home. It has been said that history has taught us that kids born in single- parent households are more likely to end up as failures. I'm writing this to dispel the lies about "nothing good can come from the hood." Anyone growing up in America can become whatever he or she desires if given the opportunity, proper nurturing, and an education. If we are to become that person that God has destined for us to be, it is up to us to prepare and not be hindered by people or circumstances. Adversity comes only to strengthen us for that journey from zero to hero. No man has the power to hold you down unless you give it to him. We owe it to the millions of oppressed people in the past that had the desire to be somebody but not the will to do it. 20 THINGS THAT MY FATHER NEVER TOLD ME BUT MY MOTHER DID... was written to show that all it takes is one person to believe in you and how being loved can make you unstoppable. I have never read about anyone being able to stand in front of a train once that train is gaining momentum in route to its destination. This book is not just about how to defeat the things that hold you back, but to continue to move forward to your pre- determined position in this life. I hope this book blesses you as much as it blessed me putting it together and writing it. REMEMBER: WITH GOD THERE IS NO PAIN WITHOUT PURPOSE!!!!!!
