The dazzlingly funny second volume of Danny Baker's memoirs: the television years. Since my first book was published I have had countless friends and family members get in touch to say how come I hadn't included this story or that tale. Was I ashamed of being shot twice, once up the arse, in Jamaica Road? How long should a man live with such a secret? If by retrospectively dropping my trousers every few pages I can reveal a fuller picture of myself during these years, then so be it. Besides. Being shot up the arse. In front of your mates. What else did I forget?

Mark Twain’s complete, uncensored Autobiography was an instant bestseller when the first volume was published in 2010, on the centennial of the author’s death, as he requested. Published to rave reviews, the Autobiography was hailed as the capstone of Twain’s career. It captures his authentic and unsuppressed voice, speaking clearly from the grave and brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions. The eagerly-awaited Volume 2 delves deeper into Mark Twain’s life, uncovering the many roles he played in his private and public worlds. Filled with his characteristic blend of humor and ire, the narrative ranges effortlessly across the contemporary scene. He shares his views on writing and speaking, his preoccupation with money, and his contempt for the politics and politicians of his day. Affectionate and scathing by turns, his intractable curiosity and candor are everywhere on view. Editors: Benjamin Griffin and Harriet E. Smith Associate Editors: Victor Fischer, Michael B. Frank, Sharon K. Goetz and Leslie Diane Myrick

Am Silvesterabend 1998, an der Schwelle zum neuen Millennium, beginnt nicht nur der zweite Teil seiner Biografie sondern auch Bransons zweites Leben – zwei Jahrzehnte, voll mit noch mehr Höhen und Tiefen, Rekorden und Grenzüberschreitungen. Doch es sind nicht nur die Höhenflüge, an denen Branson den Leser teilhaben lässt. "Wenn jemand sein Leben als eine einzige lange Erfolgsgeschichte beschreibt, wird das Buch niemand gern lesen. Außerdem ist derjenige wahrscheinlich ein Lügner." Und so gewährt Branson dem Leser auch einen intimen Einblick in sein Leben jenseits von Weltrekorden und Weltraumflügen, ein Leben, das nicht frei war von Misserfolgen, Rückschlägen und Krisen – doch aus jeder ist er nur noch stärker hervorgegangen. Ein einmaliger Blick auf das Leben eines außergewöhnlichen Menschen, dem schon sein damaliger Schuldirektor prophezeite: "Entweder du landest im Gefängnis oder wirst Millionär". Mit Finding My Virginity folgt 20 Jahre nach Erscheinen des Millionen-Bestsellers Losing My Virginity der zweite Teil der Autobiografie von Ausnahme-Unternehmer Sir Richard Branson. Mit 150 exklusiven und vielen, noch nie veröffentlichten Bildern aus Richard Bransons persönlichem Fotoalbum.

"Here finally are Eliade's memoirs of the first thirty years of his life in Mac Linscott Rickett's crisp and lucid English translation. They present a fascinating account of the early development of a Renaissance talent, expressed in everything from daily and periodical journalism, realistic and fantastic fiction, and general nonfiction works to distinguished contributions to the history of religions. Autobiography follows an apparently amazingly candid report of this remarkable man's progression from a mischievous street urchin and literary prodigy, through his various love affairs, a decisive and traumatic Indian sojourn, and active, brilliant participation in pre-World War II Romanian cultural life."—Seymour Cain, Religious Studies Review
