    A Slip of the Keyboard is a collection of essays and other nonfiction from Terry Pratchett, spanning the whole of his writing career from his early years to the present day. Terry Pratchett has earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series, but in recent years he has become equally well known and respected as an outspoken campaigner for such causes as Alzheimer’s research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together for the first time the finest examples of Pratchett’s nonfiction writing, both serious and surreal, from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer (and why banana daiquiris are so important), from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation about Gandalf’s love life and passionate defenses of the causes dear to him. With all the humor and humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular, this collection brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for himself—man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orangutans, and dignity in dying.

    Anais Nin, Anne Frank, and Sylvia Plath wrote the world’s most famous diaries. And where are they today? Dead. But the world’s OTHER great diarist, Joan Rivers, is alive and kicking. And complaining. In the extraordinary tradition of The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O’Connor and George Orwell’s Diaries, comes an intimate and enriching glimpse into the mind of the most illuminating woman-of-letters of her generation—the provocative exploration of an age in which she has lived on and on and on and on. Following up the phenomenal success of her headline-making New York Times bestseller I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me, the unstoppable Joan Rivers is at it again. When her daughter Melissa gives her a diary for Christmas, at first Joan is horrified—who the hell does Melissa think she is? That fat pig, Bridget Jones? But as Joan, being both beautiful and introspective, begins to record her day-to-day musings, she realizes she has a lot to say. About everything. And everyone, God help them. The result? A no-holds-barred, delightfully vicious and always hilarious look at the everyday life of the ultimate diva. Follow Joan on a family vacation in Mexico and on trips between New York and Los Angeles where she mingles with the stars, never missing a beat as she delivers blistering critiques on current events, and excoriating insights about life, pop culture, and celebrities (from A to D list), all in her relentlessly funny signature style. This is the Diary of a Mad Diva. For the first time in a century, a diary by someone that is actually both worth reading and worth suing.

    Dorothy Wordsworth was born in Cockermouth, England in 1771, one year after her famous poet brother, William, who she would become very close with over the following years. After their mother died in 1778, they were separated and did not return to the Lake District until 1794, when they spent two happy months walking around the hills near Keswick, eventually settling down near Grasmere in 1799. The journals that Dorothy kept are remarkable for the detailed observations she makes of the surrounding countryside and people, often providing glimpses of poverty and suffering, as well as displaying her complete love affair with nature. Dorothy and William lived at Dove Cottage from 1799 to 1813, and then later moved to Rydal Mount, where they resided until they passed away, William in 1850 and Dorothy five years later.

    In 1942 Cora Johnston is grieving over the death of her young husband, torpedoed in the Atlantic; Aileen Morris is intercepting Luftwaffe communications during the siege of Malta; and Clara Milburn, whose son was captured after Dunkirk, is waiting for word on his whereabouts. We tend to see the Second World War as a man’s war, featuring spitfire crews and brave deeds on the beaches of Normandy. But during wartime, millions of women—in the services and on the home front—demonstrated that they were cleverer, more broad-minded, and altogether more complex than anyone had ever guessed. In Millions Like Us, Virginia Nicholson tells the story of the women’s war, through a host of individual women’s experiences. She tells how they loved, suffered, laughed, grieved, and dared; how they re-made their world in peacetime; and how their lives would forever be changed. This unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Millions Like Us features a special multi-voice recording with five actresses who bring to life the hundreds of personal testimonies, diary entries, and books that make up this superb study.
