LEMON - £8.99
Spencer's life was pretty insignificant and uncomplicated. This suited him fine.
However, when a mix-up by the Post Office means he gets mistaken for someone else, then his life becomes somewhat more significant and a lot more complicated (we're talking murder, sex, violence, car chases, beautiful women, and an annoyed fat cat - both of the feline and big business variety).
Spencer’s week usually consisted of nothing more than dull, repetitive, time-wasting tedium.
This week was going to be wildly different and Spencer wasn’t going to like it one little bit.
Barnaby Eaton-Jones's debut comedy/thriller garnered critical acclaim and five-star reviews online and in print, with most likening his style to a cross between Douglas Adams and Ben Elton. Such was the response to the lazy feline owned by one of the main characters, subsequent editions (and this third edition) have included a short story called Eric's Tale that's a little standalone adventure for him at the end of the book
"...So there you have it. Barnaby Eaton-Jones is the new Douglas Adams, Eric the cat is my new hero and, when literary life gives you Lemon like this, you don’t need to make lemonade, you just need to read it and enjoy."
- Susan Omand, Albie Media
“I sang some songs, acted here and there, but no way would I call myself exceptional. I just hope I did my best for my audiences.” - a somewhat self-deprecating comment from Dean Martin on his own career. It was this laid-back approach to his work, however, that belied a dedicated and professional entertainer.
Bernard H Thorpe first got to know Dino in 1960 and what followed for the next thirty or so years was an unexpected working relationship between the two men. Bernard became instrumental in many of Dino’s album releases in the UK and a staunch promoter of the man’s career across the globe. This book is a respectful and unique look back at the career of a true, world-class entertainer and the story of how an unassuming family man from the British media industry became a life-long advocate and friend.
Featuring personal colour photos of their meetings, and letters of corrospondence (one of which pertaining to the then yet-to-be-written book), as well as a comprehensive list of recordings and radio/film/television appearances, this is an insightful look into the life of a reluctant but legendary celebrity who scaled the heights of Hollywood and worldwide fame. In his centenary year, we are delighted to bring you Just Dino – A Personal Recollection of Dean Martin.
