Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skillfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the harsh totalitarian world he lives in which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party.

Russian schoolteacher, Mikhail Platonov, has a problem, one he has lived with all his life - he's irresistible to women. Alongside the attentions of his home-loving wife, Sasha, he must also attend to the racing pulses of Maria Grekova, a young chemistry student, Sofya Yegorovna, a married acquaintance from his past, and most dangerously of all, one of Chekhov's greatest creations, Anna Petrovna, a formidably intelligent widow. If that wasn't enough, he's broke, in debt, and about to lose his home. For the sanity of everyone, and the stability of society, something must be done about Platonov. Set in the blazing heat of the middle of nowhere, complete with criminals who live in the forest and a runaway train, this freewheeling comedy is a cry of defiance at the adult traps of conventionality and moral hypocrisy.

1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it's a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. Let those on the continent cooperate and hug and kiss each other on the ruddy cheek. Here in Britain, one party governs and we get things done. It's a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions. A minority government? No one with any sense or gumption gives you more than a matter of weeks. You're gonna fall, and fast, and hard. So start finding things to land on. Now. Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham's This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
