As far back as he can remember James Corden has only ever wanted to be in one place: in front of you, doing something to make you laugh, cry, shout, or giggle uncontrollably. At the age of 4, he grandstanded throughout his baby sister’s christening, standing on a chair in front of the whole congregation, pulling faces and cracking everyone up. Despite himself, the vicar was impressed. And from then on he couldn’t get enough of the spotlight, even when it always seemed to avoid him. Throughout his teens, he and his Dad trudged up and down towards London, getting closer and closer to landing a gig, only to be told ‘No’ at the last stage. But he never gave up and soon found his whole life turned upside down and inside out by his experience as one Alan Bennett’s History Boys. From that moment forth, he’s never looked back. May I Have Your Attention Please? is the warm, cheeky, surprisingly honest and hilarious story of one of our most popular comedy talents. From his antics as one of the founding players of his high-school’s first ever rugby team to gaining recognition in the West End, to nationwide fame as the loveably loud Smithy in the award-winning Gavin and Stacey, this is a tenderly told story of what it’s like to try, try and try again and - happily - get there in the end. 1.

When a young gymnast dies performing a world-famous stunt, Kiernan suspects foul play. As a young girl in Baltimore, Kiernan O’Shaughnessy lived for gymnastics, where strict discipline and endless practice kept her centered even as her life fell apart. Her idol was stuntman Greg Gaige. Famous for pulling off the moves no one else could, and for scorning safety equipment, Gaige was the one man O’Shaughnessy truly admired. Ten years after Gaige’s tragic death, O’Shaughnessy is a private detective on the California coast, and a young female gymnast has come along to challenge Gaige’s crown. O’Shaughnessy goes to watch the girl attempt the death-defying Gaige Move, without a harness, on the edge of a seaside cliff. After a perfect landing, the ground gives way and the gymnast falls to her death. The police call it an accident, but O’Shaughnessy is determined to get the truth—in honor of her old hero, and for the young woman who looked up to him the way she did. 1. Language: English.

Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins´ candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell over 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but he has never lost his talent for crafting songs that touch listeners around the globe. This is the story of his epic career, from child actor to one of the most successful songwriters of the pop music era. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on-the-job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Later he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel, and compose the songs that would rocket him to international solo fame with the release of Face Value and ´In the Air Tonight´. Whether he´s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, playing twice at Live Aid, or writing the Oscar-winning music for Disney´s smash-hit animated film Tarzan, Collins keeps it intimate and his storytelling gift never wavers.
Danwe lived in a vase. It was not a regularly shaped vase. Danwe´s vase had a tall cylindrical section. That is to say it was taller than it was wide. This section of the vase was similar in shape to a can of spam, but much nicer looking. This section was just tall enough for Danwe to stand and walk comfortably in. It was also wide enough for a chair or two - Danwe had three. He would have liked to have a sofa, but he knew there was no way a sofa could make the turn from the vase´s opening into this cylindrical section. Danwe called this cylindrical section his living room. In the middle of Danwe´s living room was the vertical section of the vase. This vertical section of the vase was rather squarish in shape and slightly wider at the bottom than at the top. Other than this, it resembled other vases. There were a couple of steps down from the living room to the bottom of this vertical section, and a couple more steps going back up to the rest of the living room. Danwe called the area at the bottom of these steps, his landing. It wasn´t very big, it only took a step or two to walk across, but it was big enough. If Danwe stood in his landing and reached his hands up, he could just reach the opening of his vase. This was his window to the world. Most of the time, Danwe left his window open. But on days like today, when there was too much coming in from the outside world, Danwe would reach up and close the lid to his vase. Closing the lid worked similarly to pulling a shade across a window. When I say Danwe lived in a vase, I mean he lived in a vase. That is to say, he never left. He had lived here all his life, all by himself. When Danwe needed something from the outside, he would have it delivered. This was almost the only contact that Danwe had with the other little people who lived in this house. So what happens when Danwe finally leaves his vase and starts exploring? What will his world be l 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Quinn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/115296/bk_acx0_115296_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
