Award-winning poet and rapper Kate Tempest's electrifying debut novel takes us into the beating heart of the capital in this multigenerational tale of drugs, desire and belonging. It gets into your bones. You don't even realise it until you're driving through it, watching all the things you've always known and leaving them behind. Young Londoners Becky, Harry and Leon are leaving town in a fourth-hand Ford Cortina with a suitcase full of money.

  • D DAY Through German Eyes

Almost all accounts of D-Day are told from the Allied perspective, with the emphasis on how German resistance was overcome on June 6, 1944. But what was it like to be a German soldier in the bunkers and gun emplacements of the Normandy coast, facing the onslaught of the mightiest seaborne invasion in history? What motivated the German defenders, what were their thought processes - and how did they fight from one strong point to another, among the dunes and fields, on that first cataclysmic day?

I guess if you live life in the kind of bubble he has you're going to be a bit odd but here Fleetwood often left me shaking my head at in particular his romantic engagements and the way he treated friends and lovers. Total narcissist.

You heard it here first! This audiobook download is only available in the UK from Audible.
In the opening scene of Falling Man, Keith Neudecker emerges from the smoke and ash of the burning tower where he worked, and makes his way to the apartment of his ex-wife and young son uptown. Throughout this bold and haunting novel, DeLillo traces the way the events of September 11 kindled or rekindled relationships, reconfigured our emotional landscape, our memory, and our perception of the world.

No story whatsoever. Could not hold my attention at all. Avoid! Maybe means more to Americans. Not for me. Poor.

"We weren't Nazi soldiers we were German soldiers"
Takes the usual line of claiming to not know of Nazi atrocities despite his high rank. Blamed France for outbreak of WW2. In denial.
