From Pasta to Pigfoot,Frances Mensah Williams, 9781909762206
Dismissed as a cultural lightweight by the man she is desperate to please, under-achieving PA, Faye Bonsu, is on a mission to find love. A disastrous night out leaves pasta-fanatic Faye’s romantic dreams in tatters and underscores her alienation from her African heritage. Leaving her cosy middle-class life in London’s leafy Hampstead to find out what she’s missing, Faye is whisked into the hectic social whirlpool of Ghana where she meets Sonny, the pretty-boy womaniser; Edwin, her host’s America-crazy boyfriend; Baaba, of the enormous hips and sardonic tongue; Stuart, the British expat who loves all things (and women) Ghanaian;, and the handsome Rocky Asante, a cynical, career-obsessed banker with no time for women… until now. Transported into a world of food, fun and sun, and faced with choices she had never thought possible, Faye is forced to discover that no matter how far you travel, you can’t find love until you find yourself
No More Heroes,Stephen Thompson,9781909762121
July 7, 2005. Simon Weekes is travelling on the London underground. Shortly into the journey, the carriage is wrecked by a massive bomb blast. Virtually everyone is killed and almost all the survivors are severely injured. Simon is among the lucky few to have escaped relatively unharmed.
Seconds after the explosion, he quickly and calmly organises the small band of survivors into a rescue team and together they start shifting piles of wreckage in order to get at the maimed and the mutilated. In the days following the bombing, word of his heroics get out and he finds himself under full glare of the media spotlight. He becomes an overnight celebrity, hounded for interviews and regularly approached in the street by autograph hunters. The only thing is, he doesn’t want all the attention. He can’t afford it. He has too much to lose.
