Choir

Author:

Gareth Malone

Synopsis:

Gareth Malone was an unknown choirmaster when he arrived on British TV screens: boyish, irrepressible and determined, he took on a collection of kids from the most unlikely comprehensive and turned them into a talented performing choir. Since then, each series of THE CHOIR has gone on to ever more demanding challenges, and this is Gareth's memoir of a period in which he has not only transformed the lives of thousands but also gained a lifetime's worth of experience in human frailty and strength. Written with real joy, emotion and amusement, the twenty chapters each deal with an individual moment - both breakthroughs and disasters - or an individual character that has contributed to this extraordinary adventure.

The Old Man And The Knee

Author:

Christopher Matthew

Synopsis:

Although in his seventies, Christopher Matthew is convinced he is not old. He plays golf, he walks the dog, and no one ever stands up for him on crowded buses and Tubes. He has all his own teeth and hair, and does not require a hearing aid. He is, in short, enjoying late middle age. How, though, does one know when one is old? Does old age creep up slowly, or arrive out of the blue like an outsize pigeon dropping? Will one be able to summon up some half-decent last words, and what should they be? No one likes the idea of growing old, but this largely light-hearted guide to life in the last lane will persuade late middle-agers that they have more to look forward to than they might imagine.

Madeleine

Author:

Kate McCann

Synopsis:

'The decision to publish this book has been very difficult, and taken with heavy hearts... My reason for writing it is simple: to give an account of the truth... Writing this memoir has entailed recording some very personal, intimate and emotional aspects of our lives. As with every action we have taken over the last four years, it ultimately boils down to whether what we are doing could help us to find Madeleine. When the answer to that question is yes, or even possibly, our family can cope with anything... What follows is an intensely personal account, and I make no apology for that... Nothing is more important to us than finding our little girl.'
