Tak trochu úžasní


Všichni nesnáší dokonalé rodinky. Takže Battleovy si prostě zamilujete! Ideální čtení pro každého, kdo měl v životě pocit, že s ním doma žije podivná skupinka cizinců, kterým se říká příbuzní. Nejprodávanější humoristická kniha roku 2011 v Británii. Prodáno více než 660 000 výtisků! Kniha humorným způsobem vypráví o obyčejné anglické rodině a především o sedmnáctileté Doře, která se považuje za ošklivku a teprve se učí hledat si zdravé sebevědomí. Dělá při tom ty základní chyby – například se přes Facebook seznámí s člověkem, který se vydává za někoho jiného než je, a má v úmyslu dívce ublížit. Její matka Mo, těsně před padesátkou, zjišťuje samé nepříjemné věci, hlavně to, že přestože je dětská psycholožka, nerozumí ani jednomu ze svých dvou dospívajících dětí. Taky v poslední době zešedivěla, a to jak zevnitř, tak vně. Její tvář působí na děti jako maska tlustého mandarína. Ještě že má muže. Ano, je to muž, takže tady se žádná velká pomoc očekávat nedá. Ale má taky psa a spoustu dalších problémů, které je třeba řešit.

Probudí se Silvia? Dokud se smějeme nad každou stránkou jejího života, má pořád ještě šanci.

Rosiina metoda


Komický román o ženě, která až do svých osmatřiceti let říkala ne, a teď chce najednou všechno dohonit. Excentrická anglická učitelka Rosie se rozhodne přijmout místo v bohaté newyorské rodině Wilder-Binghamových, kde bude dělat paní k dětem, osmiletým dvojčatům Thomasi Wilder-Binghamovi Třetímu a Kembleovi Wilder-Binghamovi Juniorovi. Ukáže se však, že v luxusním, citově chladném a morálně vypulírovaném prostředí, kde mají všichni a všechno své určené místo, se nejen nedá pracovat s dětmi, ale nedá se tam skoro dýchat. Aby tam vydržela, nechá se Rosie poprvé v životě řídit svým instinktem, a brzy obrátí spořádaný svět sešněrované rodiny v třeštivý chaos.

According to Yes


Dawn French, number one bestselling author of A Tiny Bit Marvellous and Oh Dear Silvia, returns with her joyously funny new novel, According To YES. The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side - has its own rigid code of behaviour. It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays - unacceptable. Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome. Fun - no thanks. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom. A beautifully displayed impeccably edited fortress of restraint. So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn't read the rule book. For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying ...yes? 'I adored According to YES. It's so different to anything I've read in forever, so charming, wise, brilliantly written. I loved it all' Marian Keyes 'There is lots of fun to be had reading this book. It's impossible not to warm to Rosie, a funny and open-hearted woman who acts as a salve and comfort blanket for this unhappy, inhibited family. There's something quite joyous about the way she unashamedly romps her way through the novel, changing the lives of those around her for the better' Express 'French can spin a yarn ...which sets According to YES apart from the usual chick-lit template. Think the vicar of Dibley, without the dog collar. YES YES YES indeed' Independent Further praise for Dawn French: 'A fantastic slam-dunk pageturner. Funny, enriching ...page after page I laughed out loud' Mail on Sunday 'A hilarious snapshot of family life in the twenty-first century' Sunday Express 'Extremely funny' Sunday Times 'Dawn tackles the big ones - love, death, grief, childhood, motherhood, parenthood - head on' Guardian 'Makes you laugh on every page' The Times 'A brilliantly observed, very funny novel of family life' Woman and Home 'Funny, really enjoyable, highly recommended. A wonderful writer - witty, wise, poignant' Daily Mail

Me You A Diary


This is Dawn French's fabulous new non-fiction book for 2017, and it's totally interactive: take a lovely ramble through the year together with Dawn. Think of it as Dawn's diary, personalized by you . . . perfection. 'Wreck This Journal meets Dawn French's ruminations on the seasons, ageing and more - this is a companion piece to help you through life itself. A very good idea' Stylist I can't count the amount of diaries I have crammed full with entries in January, that then fizzle out as the other months pile in. One of my teenage diaries has fulsome fizzing reports of every single conversation, thought and feeling about every friend, every crush, every meal, every argument until mid-March, when the entry on the 18th simply reads, 'Washed hair.' Thank god, this isn't that. This book is a way for us to tell the story of a year together. Feel free to write your appointments in it, lists, thoughts and reminders of, say, who to kill, and when, and in what order. But I've also written about age and life as I see it, through the seasons and the months, and I've added some places for you to join me in some fun and some thinking. By the end of the year, I am hoping you will have a fatter, scruffier book that is written by me but totally personalized by you. Come on in. The paper is lovely . . . AND . . . importantly, Me. You: A Diary comes with a practical elastic strap to keep all of your papers safe, with a pocket in the back for storing those special momentoes.
