The Happiest Refugee: A Memoir [used book], Anh Do
1 The Happiest Refugee: A Memoir [used book]
Anh Do Australia Allen & Unwin 2010 1742372384 / 9781742372389 Soft cover Good Book Trade Paperback 
The laugh-out-loud, reach-for-your-hanky story of one of Australia's best-loved comedians. Anh Do nearly didn't make it to Australia. His entire family came close to losing their lives on the sea as they escaped from war-torn Vietnam in an overcrowded boat. But nothing - not murderous pirates, nor the imminent threat of death by hunger, disease or dehydration as they drifted for days - could quench their desire to make a better life in the country they had dreamed about. Life in Australia was hard, an endless succession of back-breaking work, crowded rooms, ruthless landlords and make-do everything. But there was a loving extended family, and always friends and play and something to laugh about for Anh, his brother Khoa and their sister Tram. Things got harder when their father left home when Anh was only nine - they felt his loss very deeply and their mother struggled to support the family on her own. His mother's sacrifice was an inspiration to Anh and he worked hard during his teenage years to help her make ends meet, also managing to graduate high school and then university. Another inspiration was the comedian Anh met when he was about to sign on for a 60-hour a week corporate job. Anh asked how many hours he worked. 'Four,' the answer came back, and that was it. He was going to be a comedian! The Happiest Refugee tells the incredible, uplifting and inspiring life story of one of our favourite personalities. Tragedy, humour, heartache and unswerving determination - a big life with big dreams. Anh's story will move and amuse all who read it. About The Author Anh Do is one of Australia's leading comedians. He has also acted in television series and films, written screenplays and is a sought-after keynote speaker.

Mamma Mia! How Can I Resist You?  The Inside Story of Mamma Mia! and the Songs of ABBA [used book], Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus and Judy Craymer
2 Mamma Mia! How Can I Resist You? The Inside Story of Mamma Mia! and the Songs of ABBA [used book]
Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus and Judy Craymer UK Weidenfeld and Nicolson 2006 0297844210 / 9780297844211 Hardcover Good Good Book 32.0 x 25.5 x 3.0 cm 
In the 1970's, the Swedish musical phenomenon known as ABBA, Agnetha Fältskog, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, succeeded in reinventing the world's perception of pop. They produced hit after catchy hit, each one instantly recognizable, infectious, and irresistible. Nearly a quarter of a century later, these beloved songs gave birth to the blockbuster musical MAMMA MIA!, which became a legend in its own right. It opened in 85 cities and has since been seen by more than 20 million people throughout the world. This officially sanctioned book tells the double story of the band and the play and it's told by those know it best: two of the group's singer/songwriters and MAMMA MIA! producer Judy Craymer. It's colorful literally and figuratively, and jam-packed with illustrations from the group's own archives. Through first-person recollections from ABBA members, intertwined with commentary from the MAMMA MIA! team, Thank You for the Music cuts through the thicket of myths and misconceptions that have grown up around ABBA to reveal what actually happened.

A Liar's Autobiography, Graham Chapman
4 A Liar's Autobiography
Graham Chapman Uk Methuen Publishing Ltd 2014 0413777286 / 9780413777287 Soft cover New Book 
Graham Chapman reveals what it was like to be part of the revolutionary and zany Monty Python teamRequired reading for Monty Python fans, this true and false memoir is Graham Chapman's own hilarious account of his life as a Python and as a homosexual. The book equals Joe Orton's famous Diaries in providing an unblushing account of a gay lifestyle linked to entertainment. Full of outrageous fictions and touching truths, in telling surreal and outrageous lies Graham Chapman often uncovers a truth about himself and colleagues. The stories Chapman relates--whether as mountaineer or medical student (he was a doctor); actor or alcoholic (he was both); heterosexual groupie-guzzler or homosexual coming to terms with himself (bit of both)--form a surreal and crowded mosaic that is funny, disturbing, and moving by turns. A minor cult classic by a major comic talent.

Luca Dotti USA Harper Collins 2015 0062284703 / 9780062284709 Hardcover New Book 23.3 x 17.8 x 2.5 cm 
Enter Audrey Hepburn's private world in this unique biography compiled by her son that combines recollections, anecdotes, excerpts from her personal correspondence, drawings, and recipes for her favorite dishes written in her own hand, and more than 250 previously unpublished personal family photographs. Audrey at Home offers fans an unprecedented look at the legendary star, bringing together the varied aspects of her life through the food she loved-from her childhood in Holland during World War II, to her time in Hollywood as an actress and in Rome as a wife and mother, to her final years as a philanthropist traveling the world for UNICEF. Here are fifty recipes that reflect Audrey's life, set in the context of a specific time, including Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream-a celebration of liberation in Holland at the end of the war; Penne alla Vodka-a favorite home-away-from-home dish in Hollywood; Turkish-style Sea Bass-her romance with and subsequent marriage to Andrea Dotti; Boeuf a la Cuillere-Givenchy's favorite dish, which she'd prepare when he'd visit her in Switzerland; and Mousse au Chocolat-dinner at the White House. Audrey also loved the basics: Spaghetti al Pomodoro was an all-time favorite, particularly when returning home from her travels, as was a dish of good vanilla ice cream. Each recipe is accompanied by step-by-step instructions, including variations and preparation tips, anecdotes about Audrey and her life, and a poignant collection of photographs and memorabilia. Audrey at Home is a personal scrapbook of Audrey's world and the things she loved best-her children, her friends, her pets. It is a life that unfolds through food, photographs, and intimate vignettes in a sophisticated and lovely book that is a must for Audrey Hepburn fans and food lovers.

Michael T. Gillies Australia Boolarong Press 2014 0646914677 / 9780646914671 Hardcover New Book 28.5 x 21.0 cm 
How could a building-just bricks, timber and plaster-generate such extreme feelings of passion in a community? Why was this building the focal point of entertainment in the city for decades? Find that out and more in this new detailed history of Brisbane's Regent Theatre, the largest and most ornate theatre and picture palace built in the city of Brisbane, Queensland. The story of the Regent from its conception in 1927 to its partial demolition in 1978 and rebirth in 1980 to its closure in 2010 is one that until now has never been told. With chapters on the design, operation and the personal experiences of those who entered its gilded interior, it is the complete A to Z of the Brisbane Regent. There are beautiful photographic plates, historic plans and programs, and intriguing details about the new technologies used, as well as those events which shaped the Regent's history-the 'full house' records, the robbery, the fire, the gun shots, the midnight demolition-it is all here. Also included is a list of major feature films and live artists who performed on the Regent's stage from 1929 to its close in 1978. This book will be essential reading for those who visited the Regent, for theatre aficionados and history buffs. It is a book for all generations to read and enjoy. 184 pages.

Russell Brand grew up in Essex . His father left when he was three months old, he was bulimic at 12 and left school at 16 to study at the Italia Conti stage school.

In 2003 Russell was told that he would be in prison, in a mental hospital or dead within six months unless he went in to rehab. He has now been clean for three years. In 2006 his presenting career took off, and he hosted the NME awards as well as his own MTV show, 1 Leicester Square, plus Big Brother's Big Mouth on Channel 4. His UK stand-up tour was sold out and his BBC Radio 6 show became a cult phenomenon, the second most popular podcast of the year after Ricky Gervais. He was awarded Time Out's Stand Up Comedian of the Year and won Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards. In 2007 Russell hosted both the Brit Awards and Comic Relief, and continued to front Big Brother's Big Mouth. His BBC2 radio podcast became the UK's most popular. Russell writes a weekly football column in the Guardian and is the patron of Focus 12, a charity helping people with alcohol and substance misuse.
