A headline-crunching celebration of Radio 4´s hugely successful topical comedy quiz show. The News Quiz made its debut on Radio 4 in 1977, and four decades later it´s still playfully making and breaking the headlines of our daily news. Among the vintage gems in this collection are 25 Years of the News Quiz, in which Alan Coren, Andy Hamilton, Jeremy Hardy, John Sergeant, Linda Smith and Francis Wheen take a trip through a quarter of a century of headline news, with Radio 4 newsreaders providing cuttings (and giggles) from 1977 to 2002. Meanwhile The Archive Hour: Headlines, Deadlines and Punchlines, presented by Matthew Parris, features interviews with chairmen and panellists past and present including Barry Norman. Also included are Barry Took and Simon Hoggart´s own selections of funniest moments from the 1980s to the 2000s. The plethora of guest players featured includes Clive Anderson, Joan Bakewell, Jo Brand, Rory Bremner, Peter Cook, Edwina Currie, Nigel Dempster, Roy Hattersley, Tony Hawks, Jeremy Hardy, Ian Hislop, Richard Ingrams, Clive James, Boris Johnson, Charles Kennedy, Miles Kington, Maureen Lipman, Stuart Maconie, Steve Punt, Willie Rushton, John Sergeant, Linda Smith, Mark Steel, Janet Street-Porter, Sandi Toksvig, John Wells and many, many more. If you enjoy your news humorously grilled, with a side order of biting wit, this vintage collection is highly recommended. Some of the humour on this release reflects the era in which it was first broadcast. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Took, Alan Coren, Simon Hoggart.

The Food Allergy News Cookbook:A Collection of Recipes from Food Allergy News and Members of the Food Allergy Network
Imagine the poets Wallace Stevens and Anne Sexton meet in a bar owned by Michael Robbins. The result might just be News In A New World, the first published collection of poems by Tamara Tifareth. Jarringly profound, hilarious, and offensive, highly topical, always insightful, the poems combine a strong lyrical quality with a narrator´s capacity for storytelling. In many of the pieces, Ms. Tifareth assumes a particular type of persona only to push its attitudes to the very limits of sensibility, illustrating the absurdity of the human condition. The collection includes an afterword (appropriately entitled ´Afterward´) written by novelist Emericus Durden, Ms. Tifareth´s close friend and confidante, and the man who first discovered her more than a decade ago wandering homeless with a backpack full of poems on the boardwalk of Venice Beach, California. 1.

We need to know about it in case it’s coming our way.”This delicious, contemptuous, and poignant micro-story is the first in the acclaimed collection, Moral Disorder, from towering author and number one New York Times best seller Margaret Atwood.The bad news arrives in the form of a paper, which Tig carries up the stairs to Nell who is wallowing in bed. A year from now, they won’t remember the details, but for now, the bad news sits between the aging couple as they prepare their breakfast together, and Nell imagines them in Southern France as the barbarians invade Rome on what is a beautiful day, safe and quiet, for now, from the bad news coming their way.A Vintage Shorts Selection. 1.
