A warm and comforting read, set against the nation's favourite holiday camp, from bestselling author of The Woolworths Girls 'Molly Missons gazed around in awe. So this was Butlin's. Whitewashed buildings, bordered by rhododendrons, gave a cheerful feeling to a world still recovering from six years of war. The Skegness holiday camp covered a vast area, much larger than Molly expected to see.' Molly Missons hasn't had the best of times recently. Having lost her parents, now some dubious long-lost family have darkened her door - attempting to steal her home and livelihood... After a horrendous ordeal, Molly applies for a job as a Butlin's Aunty. When she receives news that she has got the job, she immediately leaves her small home town - in search of a new life in Skegness. Molly finds true friendship in Freda, Bunty and Plum. But the biggest shock is discovering that star of the silver screen, Johnny Johnson, is working at Butlin's as head of the entertainment team. Johnny takes an instant liking to Molly and she begins to shed the shackles of her recent traumas. Will Johnny be just the distraction Molly needs - or is he too good be to be true?

«Ich glaube, es ist so: Am Anfang tut man alles, um ein Star zu werden, und den Rest seiner Karriere verbringt man damit, als Star zu überleben.» Wie er zum Star wurde, beschrieb Robbie Williams 2004 in seiner Autobiographie «Feel», einem weltweiten Bestseller. In seinem neuen Buch schildert er, was danach passierte. Wie er gegen Depressionen und Alkoholismus kämpfte, sich aus dem Popgeschäft zurückzog, UFOs beobachtete und die Einsamkeit suchte, wie er Ehemann und zweifacher Vater wurde und nun, nach der Versöhnung mit seinem musikalischen Partner Guy Chambers, mit seinem elften Album «The Heavy Entertainment Show» wieder in die Öffentlichkeit zurückkehrt. Auch sein neues Buch entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Musikjournalisten Chris Heath, der Williams in den vergangenen Jahren intensiv begleitete, ihn beim Komponieren und im Umgang mit seinen Kindern beobachtete. Daraus entstand ein intimer, unzensierter Bericht über den Robbie Williams der vergangenen zehn Jahre; eine Reportage über den Popstar und Privatmann und darüber, was es heißt, als Star zu überleben. Denn Robbie ist zurück – Vorhang auf! «Es ist das Tagebuch eines modernen Entertainers und seiner unsteten Gedankenwelt, die Geschichte eines Popstars, der versucht, sich selbst wiederzufinden, nachdem er aus dem Vorruhestand zurückgekehrt ist. Es ist wahr, lustig, manchmal traurig, gut geschrieben und sehr unterhaltsam. Ich hoffe, dass die Menschen Spaß daran haben.» Robbie

For Rosemary, working in Heyworth's department store in Cambridge is a dream come true. Once she steps inside the elegant building - surrounded by beautiful dresses, sumptuous fabrics and glamorous accessories - the hardships and struggles of her own life are temporarily forgotten. Heyworth's is a magical place, where Rosemary and her friends - in their smart, simple black dresses - serve the fashionable elite of Cambridge, and glimpse lives of style and ease far beyond anything they had ever imagined. It is also a place where hard work and talent are valued, and where these young women can forge a successful career. Set against the backdrop of the closing years of the Second World War, and moving into the 1950s, The Shop Girls perfectly captures the camaraderie and friendship of four ambitious young women working together in a store that offered them an escape from the drudgery of their wartime childhoods. Each of the girls' stories will be individually published from July 2014 in fortnightly serialised ebooks, leading up to the release of the complete edition (with bonus material) in September.
