First published in June 1941, the original hardback blurb is worth quoting. 'Miss Virginia Cowles has modestly entitled this account of four years as a roving journalist ''Looking for Trouble''. Never was a search more amply rewarded. She has found trouble in Spain - behind the barricades in Madrid, and among the polyglot armies of General Franco. She has found in Russia, in Germany, in Czecho-Slovakia at the time of Munich, in Roumania during the Polish war, in Finland throughout the Finnish war, In Italy during the ''lull'', in Paris a few hours before the Germans moved in, in London during the ''blitz''. Whether this is a world's record in successful trouble-hunting her publishers do not presume to say.' The question must still be left unanswered but it is unlikely that any other journalist in the five crucial years from 1935 to 1940 was so often in the right place at the right time. Anne Sebba devotes a chapter to Virginia Cowles in her Battling for News (also Faber Finds) and writes, 'For Virginia getting to the top man in any situation was both important in itself and valuable for smoothing her path whenever she might need help.' In short, she was blessed with the sort of chutzpah that could secure an interview with Mussolini (browbeating and insecure at the same time) and make sure she was on the last plane in or out of the latest hotspot. To return to the original blurb, 'It is Miss Cowles' outstanding merit that she is magnificently capable of writing a book. Her journalist's eye never fails her; her lucid, human, humorous style is never at a loss. This is a book to which the old clich 'never a dull line' can be honestly applied. It is as good a first-hand account of the mad world of Hitler's Europe as is ever likely to come off the printing press. And there is something oddly fitting and perhaps prophetic, in the fact that a woman should have written it.' Looking for Trouble is a tour de force fully deserving to be reissued on the 100th anniversary of the author's birth.

This book is written to address an underemphasized area of chess training and study, the identification of and reaction to--threats. For beginner and intermediate-level players, the study of tactics is paramount. Almost all tactics books take the approach of providing a position where there is a forced win, checkmate or draw. However, Looking for Trouble takes a different tack. This book helps players to recognize threats by providing over 200 problems in which players can focus on identifying and meeting threats ranging from extremely easy to fiendishly difficult. The identification of difficult threats ie how to meet them iediscussed in a manner that accommodates players of all levels.

News correspondent Leslie Cockburn has dined with the Cali Cartel, marched with the Khmer Rouge, hunted down the Black Turban in Afghanistan, pursued the Russian mafia to the Arctic Circle, shared pomegranate sauce with the Ayatollahs, and stopped a small Kurdish war, but she has never told these stories in a book-until now. Cockburn was one of the first women to break into the tight fraternity of combat and third-world reportage when she began work at the London bureau of NBC News in 1976-where successful news gathering required "unorthodox tactics, stamina, and, for best results, a criminal mind." By the time she moved to CBS's "60 Minutes," Cockburn had interviewed Muammar Qaddaffi and Margaret Thatcher, been arrested as spy in Gambia, and effectively eliminated whatever doubts her colleagues might have had about a woman's ability to tackle the news business's most dangerous assignments. A mother of three who has made a career of breaking down barriers, Leslie Cockburn has exposed the tobacco lobby in Washington and human rights violations in Cambodia, and her impact on foreign and domestic policy has been as powerful as her impact on the rights and prerogatives of working women. In an industry in which, as late as 1973, women had to lobby to wear trousers to work, Leslie Cockburn was determined to combine a strong family life with a strong professional life, sacrificing neither. With a cast of generals, drug lords, rock stars, and kings, LOOKING FOR TROUBLE is the incredible story of a career that has spanned the history-making news events of the last two decades.

In her articles and essays, Suzanne Moore takes a vitriolic look at the icons of modern life - post-feminism, Baudrillard, Laura Ashley, Twin Peaks, the New Man, Safe Sex, James Bond, a Green Planet. In her film reviews, she dissects the 'mega' filmmakers of our time: Steven Spielberg, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Pedro Almod?var, Ken Russell and David Lynch. Definitely not 'one of the boys', Suzanne Moore's attitude to the good and famous is refreshing and irreverent.

Serbian by birth, brought up under Nazi occupation and transplanted to the United States in his teens, Charles Simic has had the opportunity to distil a highly particular vision of the world. A courageous comic gaiety goes hand in hand with frank recognition of our darker ethical and philosophical dilemmas, while a distinctly European sensibility absorbs, with unpatronising delight, the junk culture and street rhetoric of contemporary urban America. There is no poet quite like him, and the attempt to fix labels always ends in futility. This may be why he is one of America's most admired poets, an example to many of the younger generation and winner of most of the nation's top literary awards. Looking for Trouble gives readers ideal access to his imaginative world, and it supplements his Frightening Toys, published by Faber in 1995 and praised by Mark Ford, in the TLS, for 'its recklessness, its individualism, and its freedom'.

Outlawed is Mark’s third novel and is the final installment of the Prank Trilogy. A critically acclaimed and fast-paced adventure series featuring a host of colorful characters, including Kev and Sadie, the series’ heroes. It comes hot on the heels of its predecessors Prank in 2010 and Scallywags in 2011. The author has become well known for his descriptive skills and has developed a knack for suspense building and the setting of a particular scene. It makes for great reading, and the pages seem to turn themselves as the story weaves and the plot twists and turns; at times it leaves you breathless, others it will make you laugh out loud. One thing is for sure—there is never a dull moment even when there is one.

The Pan of Hamgee doesn’t believe in miracles but if he’s going to save K’Barth it looks as if he might need one. He's not quite as alone as he thought. The punters from The Parrot and Screwdriver are right behind him and he has rescued three of his friends from the Grongolian Security Forces, who are now of course, three of the nation's most wanted, which doesn't make life easy. He even has something of a plan for once. It involves making peace with the Resistance, trying to resurrect the Underground movement, and toppling Lord Vernon. Now, The Pan just needs to keep his head down and maintain a low profile. He must be brave and clever and stay in control. That's going to be a first. But the hardest part will be staying alive long enough to put his plan into action. Written in British English with a little light swearing. Suggested cinema rating: PG This book is the final part of a a completed science fiction series which is best enjoyed when read in sequence. INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Q – So, tell us about the K’Barthan Series. What made you write it? What makes it special? A – I wanted to write the books I wanted to read that hadn't been written. This is still why I write. I also wanted it to reflect the books I love, Terry Pratchett's discworld, Douglas Adams, Jasper Fforde, Tom Holt, Robert Rankin ... Also stuff like Heide Goody's Clovenhoof series, The Stainless Steel Rat series and strains of Harry Potter. The hero, The Pan of Hamgee, had to be normal; someone who is aware of the risks he is taking and human – ie scared – for whom bravery costs. In Ruth, the heroine, I wanted to create someone pragmatic, sensible and grounded. She’s not going to lose a shoe and fall over, so the hero has to go back and help her, and they both get caught by the monster. She’s a strong female protagonist who is a bit more of a hero than The Pan, frankly – to start with at any rate. I think he catches her up as the story unfolds. Q – Do our readers have to read the K’Barthan Series in order? A – Yes otherwise the character development – and some of the technology – will make less sense. That said, the series of K'Barthan Extras I'm currently writing to go with it can be read any time. The rest of the books go in this order: - Unlucky Dip, K'Barthan Series: Prequel - Few Are Chosen, K'Barthan Series: Part 1 - The Wrong Stuff, K'Barthan Series: Part 2 - One Man: No Plan, K'Barthan Series: Part 3 - Looking For Trouble, K'Barthan Series: Part 4 Q – Will the scary bits frighten me? Hopefully not. Basically, if you have read the Harry Potter series and weren't freaked out by the scary bits in that, you should be fine with the K'Barthan Series. Q – What will readers enjoy most about The K'Barthan Series? A – Hopefully, the same things as I do: the laughs, the romance – where it appears – the fast pace and the action – especially the flying car chases – and I hope they will like its deeper side. Q – What is your favourite kind of Book? Would The K'Barthan Series fit on the list? A – Oh yes. As I mentioned earlier, I love humorous novels although a lot of my influences come from TV. There was this evening slot in the UK, after homework but before supper, when they showed old stuff on BBC2; original StarTrek, Get Smart, Hogan's Heroes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The persuaders, the Avengers, the Saint, Randal and Hopkirk Deceased, Space 1999. Then there's Blake's Seven and Dr Who, and Red Dwarf, of course. I loved all that. Q – Do you have a target reader? A – Officially it’s young adults and teenagers but it's turning out to be age 10 and up. Sure, now that it’s complete the series is certainly proving popular with teens and young adults and I had my nephew in mind when I wrote them, who was a teenager at the time. However, I firmly believe that all the best books should hold a universal appeal, so I also wrote it for me. Thus far – if the people who contact me are anything to go by – it appeals to a certain type of person across the board. The oldest fan of the series I know of is in his 90s and the youngest is 10. Basically, if you like British comedy and humour you will probably enjoy the K'Barthan Series. If you enjoyed the Narnia books and the Harry Potter books you will probably like it. You might even like it if you enjoy historical novels like The Children of the New Forest, or Moonfleet.
