A wonderfully funny and fresh novel about the mother of all wedding seasons. Vi Connelly got the wedding bug at just six years of age. The thrill, the attention, the big white dress - it's the Best Day of Your Life, and it's seriously addictive! Unless, of course, it's always the best day of someone else's life. Now in her late twenties, Vi finds herself a bridesmaid time and again. She's honoured to perform her wedding duties, but watching everyone else's big day begins to make Vi wonder about her own. After years of dating, Vi's got an arsenal of funny stories to tell her friends, but deep down, her heart's still stuck on her ex - the gorgeous, eternally unobtainable Caleb. Then she meets someone new, someone who could turn out to be more than just another dating war-story. But just as love finally seems to be within reach, matters take an unexpected turn. To top things off, Vi is about to embark on the mother of all wedding seasons - her mission, should she choose to accept it, is to attend eleven weddings in eighteen months, and survive with her sanity, and her relationships, intact.

British Theatre Today
Author: Aleks Sierz
Publisher: A&C Black
Category: Literary Criticism
In recent years British theatre has seen a renaissance in playwriting that has been accompanied by a proliferation of writing awards, new writing groups and a ceaseless quest for fresh, authentic voices that will ensure the vitality and relevance of theatre in the twenty-first century. Rewriting the Nation is a perfect companion to Britain's burgeoning theatre writing scene that will prove invaluable to anyone wanting a better appreciation of why British theatre - at its best - remains one of the most celebrated and vigorous throughout the world. The books opens by defining what is meant by 'new writing' and providing a study of the system in which it is produced. It considers the work of the leading 'new writing' theatres, such as the Royal Court, the Traverse, the Bush, the Hampstead and the National theatres, together with the London fringe and the work of touring companies. In the second part, Sierz provides a fascinating survey of the main preoccupations and issues that have characterised new plays in the first decade of the twenty-first century. It argues that while under New Labour economic, political and social change continued apace, generating anxiety and uncertainty in the population, theatre has been able to articulate not only those anxieties and uncertainties but also to offer powerful images of the nation. At a time when the idea of a national identity is hotly debated, British theatre has made its own contribution to the debate by offering highly individual and distinctive visions of who we are and what we might want to become. In examining the work of many of the acclaimed and emerging British playwrights the book serves to provide a narrative of contemporary British playwriting. Just as their work has at times reflected disturbing truths about our national identity, Sierz shows how British playwrights are deeply involved in the project of rewriting the nation.

Die neunjährige Pip Bartlett hat eine besondere Gabe: Sie kann mit magischen Tieren sprechen – mit Einhörnern, Seidengreifen und Hopp-Grackeln. Mit Eltern und Lehrern klappt die Verständigung allerdings manchmal nicht so gut. Weshalb Pip in den Sommerferien wegen des Einhorn-Vorfalls (wer denkt denn auch, dass die so doof sind!) zu ihrer Tante Emma verbannt wird. Emma leitet eine Praxis für magische Tiere, und begeistert plaudert Pip den ganzen Tag mit den verrücktesten Geschöpfen, die man je gesehen hat. Doch dann taucht ein abenteuerliches Problem auf, nämlich Unmengen von Fussels. Das Schlimme an diesen kleinen pelzigen Wesen: Wenn sie sich aufregen, gehen sie in Flammen auf ... Hier können nur Pip und ihr neuer Freund Thomas helfen.
