"I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself." —Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
Let’s Kill All The Lawyers - Tim Howard
What a hugely clever and multi-layered 'love letter’ to Tim Howard’s career as a GP. An absolute delight to read, not just for the story but the intricate mechanisms of the world of law and medicine. The issues the NHS face due to constraints set and responsible for by those not on the frontline and subject to daily criticism. It’s hard to be a lawyer, a good one anyway while facing NHS Politics and it’s evolutionary issues mixed in with law games and dirty tricks, while also tackling everything else that life can throw at us…
My Husband’s Fiancé - Wendy Owens
Would you like your husband’s fiancé to start visiting you in prison when you’re in prison for killing your husband’s mistress? Life is complicated and we often have ulterior motives for doing what we do. My Husband’s Fiancé is a delicious mix of intrigue, dysfunction, heartbreak and love. Oh and a bit of murder too.
Sunburn - James Felton
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story, or in the case of the Sun a bad story, rubbish story, ridiculous story… Balls out funny and yet at the same time shockingly real.
If the headlines James Felton talks about in ‘Sunburn’ in his own inimitable way, were written for a comedy sketch for SNL or Family Guy you would still be in shock at the audacity of how off the charts their diatribe was, but alas no, it’s all real.
Manic Man - Jason Wagner
Manic Man is everything I love about the power of book. How we can learn from our mistakes and share our experiences. Start conversations and challenge perceptions of the question “Who am I?”. How Jason brings to life his recollection of his journey to being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder 1 is powerfully and compassionately brought to us in a unique and empowering way that has you hooked on his rollercoaster journey, rooting for his recovery and success as a human being.
The more we understand of each other, the better.
