Catch 22
Catch 22
SOON TO BE A MAJOR TV SERIES

Discover Joseph Heller's hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it.

It's the closing months of World War II and Yossarian has never been closer to death. Stationed in an American bomber squadron off the coast of Italy, each flight mission introduces him to thousands of people determined to kill him.

But the enemy above is not Yossarian's problem - it is his own army intent on keeping him airborne, and the maddening 'Catch-22' that allows for no possibility of escape.

Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens is the definitive illustrated guide to the man and his works with images of documents from Dickens' personal archive written by one of descendants. It follows Dickens from early childhood, including his time spent as a child labourer, and looks at how he became the greatest celebrity of his age - and how he still remains recognised as one of England's greatest names, even in the 21st century.

It takes an intimate look at what he was like as a husband, a father, a friend and an employer; his longing to be an actor; his travels across North America; his year spent living in Italy; and his great love of France.

Alongside Dickens himself, readers will meet his fascinating family and his astonishing circle of friends - and will discover when and how life and real-life personalities were imitated in Dickens's art. The cast of characters in Charles Dickens embraces an incredible array of famous, and occasionally infamous, Victorians.

Christmas Carol
Christmas Carol

With A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens created a modern fairy tale and shaped our ideas of Christmas. The tale of the solitary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of the season by a series of ghostly visitors and given a second chance, was conjured up by Dickens during one of his London night walks, who 'wept and laughed' as he composed it. Taken to readers' hearts for its humour, compassion and message of redemption, it remains his best-loved book.
