A Lifetime On Clouds

RRP $12.95

Introduced by Andy Griffiths.

Adrian Sherd is a teenage boy in Melbourne of the 1950s—the last years before television and the family car changed suburbia forever.

Earnest and isolated, tormented by his hormones and his religious devotion, Adrian dreams of elaborate orgies with American film stars, and of marrying his sweetheart and fathering eleven children by her. He even dreams a history of the world as a chronicle of sexual frustration.

A Lifetime on Clouds is funny, honest and sweetly told: a less ribald, Catholic Australian Portnoy's Complaint.

She lived in fear of his physical and sexual abuse, and often wandered the streets late at night, sometimes barely dressed, and in the early hours to escape his clutches in fear for her life.

In the early seventies there was no such thing as a 'Women's refuge' (a safe house), for battered women, and victims of violence, committed by violent men, and the police treated any complaints as a simple 'Domestic' dispute instead of domestic abuse, the abusive partner was either given a good talking to or at worse a night in the cells to calm down.

The chance finally came when through another abuse of power against an elderly lady he was given a prison sentence for violent physical abuse.

The Medieval Life Of King Alfred The Great

RRP $195.95

Very few King's earn the appellation 'Great'. Alfred is the only English King honoured with this name and is credited with various successes (the foundation of a navy, English education system and religious revival). His memory looms large in the English Imagination. The medieval 'Life' of King Alfred of Wessex purports to be written by Asser, a monk in the King's service. This account of one of England's best loved and most famous kings has been accepted as offering evidence on most aspects of life in early medieval England and beyond. It was used in Victorian times to create a 'Cult' of Alfred. Alfred Smyth offers a carefully annotated translation of the 'Life' together with a long commentary. He argues that the 'Life' is a forgery which has profound implications not only for our understanding of the early English and medieval past but also for the nature of biography and history. This close scholarly rendering of the text allows the reader access to the intricacies of medieval history.
