JUDI DENCH Judi Behind the Scenes
Illustrated memoir of one of Britain’s greatest and best-loved actors. Dame Judi Dench’s very name inspires admiration, whether for her Shakespearean performances, contemporary theatre roles, or in the cinema. Now, to mark her eightieth birthday in December 2014, Dame Judi’s new book shows her off stage as well as on. We see her in dressingrooms, and at home happily larking about. The photographs are accompanied by inimitable captions in which she recollects the moments when they were taken, often with previously unrecorded anecdotes. Introduced by John Miller, her biographer, this is a fresh take on the life and brilliant career of Dame Judi Dench. Judi Dench is one of the UK’s most revered actresses, with ten BAFTAs, six Oliviers and an Oscar among the many accolades she has received throughout her career.

TERRY DEARY Dangerous Days in Elizabethan England
Elizabethan history in all its visceral deadly glory. The Elizabethan Age was a Golden Age in History, wasn’t it? Terry Deary reveals that it wasn’t all dazzling bling at the courts of kings and queens: the average subjects lived lives of squalor and hunger, violence and misery. The Golden Age was only the surface of the coin – the rest was base metal. In gruesome and compelling detail, Deary disseminates the diseases you could catch, bandits you could fall prey to and laws you could fall foul of to once again uncover the usually invisible common people from our past. Terry Deary has written nearly 250 books, is the internationally bestselling author of the Horrible Histories series (30m copies sold worldwide), and is the author of the two previous Dangerous Days books: In the Roman Empire and On the Victorian Railways.
