My Moral Compass (Gay London Life Book 1)

by Zac Andrews

First in a series of stories about GAY life in LONDON.

Moving to London straight from school opens a world of possibilities. The Big City is both safe and scary, allowing you to find your SEXUALITY but also risk losing yourself to other people â?¦

‘I first came to London about two or three years ago, as part of a school trip .. Now here I was, a couple of months away from my 21st birthday, sitting in a police cell in Chelsea, covered in blood, wondering what on earth had gone wrong with my life. Looking back on it, it was just a pub, albeit a gay pub, with people having a drink and talking about stuff. What it did for me was give me a felt insight into a world of sexual energy that I had never experienced before.

I felt slightly flustered as to what to say to him or what to call him, but he obviously sensed this and very quickly put me at ease. He offered me a drink, which I thought was great, but probably not a good idea so I politely declined and took an orange juice instead. He motioned me to sit down in a chair opposite him, and started asking me questions about me and my life. He seemed genuinely interested in me, and what I was doing with my life, and I couldn’t quite work out why. I didn’t really know what to say back to him, so I simply smiled a lot and waited for…..

Telling me to shout if I needed anything, he closed the door. I could hear him on the phone in the next room talking to someone, and I wondered what he was saying. Standing under the most stunning power shower I have ever had in my life, the heat of the water was just dripping all over me, whilst at the same time I was looking around at the splendour of my surroundings. After a couple of minutes the door opened, and I could hear the Sheikh coming in behind me. I expected him to say something, but instead the next thing I knew was the feel of his …’

Mrs Dalloway(Golden Deer Classics) [The Classics Collection #06]

by Virginia Woolf

“‘Mrs Dalloway’ contains some of the most beautiful, complex, incisive and idiosyncratic sentences ever written in English, and that alone would be reason enough to read it. It is one of the most moving, revolutionary artworks of the twentieth century.” â??Michael Cunningham
“â??Mrs. Dalloway’ is a book about the kind of love that everyone wants but that no grown-up person seriously expects to give or to get. Peter Walsh loves Clarissa Dalloway simply and absolutely for herself.” â??Edward Mendelson
“At last he resigned himself to giving me the Spanish version of Virginia Woolf’s â??Mrs. Dalloway’, with the unappealable prediction that I would learn it by heartâ?¦ I went [home] with the air of someone who had discovered the world.” â??Gabriel Garcia Marquez

“Mrs. Dalloway” chronicles a June day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway â?? a day that is taken up with running minor errands in preparation for a party and that is punctuated, toward the end, by the suicide of a young man she has never met. In giving an apparently ordinary day such immense resonance and significance â?? infusing it with the elemental conflict between death and life â?? Virginia Woolf triumphantly discovers her distinctive style as a novelist. Originally published in 1925, “Mrs. Dalloway” is Woolf’s first complete rendering of what she described as the “luminous envelope” of consciousness: a dazzling display of the mind’s inside as it plays over the brilliant surface and darker depths of reality.

Middlemarch (Golden Deer Classics) [The Classics Collection #05]

by George Eliot

“One of the few English novels written for grown-up people.” â??Virginia Woolf
“What do I think of â??Middlemarch’? What do I think of glory â?? except that in a few instances this ‘mortal has already put on immortality.’ George Eliot was one. The mysteries of human nature surpass the ‘mysteries of redemption,’ for the infinite we only suppose, while we see the finite.” â??Emily Dickinson
“â??Middlemarch’ is probably the greatest English novel.” â??Julian Barnes
“They’ve [women] produced the greatest writer in the English language ever, George Eliot, and arguably the third greatest, Jane Austen, and certainly the greatest novel, â??Middlemarch’…” â??Martin Amis

By the time the novel appeared to tremendous popular and critical acclaim in 1871-2, George Eliot was recognized as England’s finest living novelist. It was her ambition to create a world and portray a whole community–tradespeople, middle classes, country gentry–in the rising provincial town of Middlemarch, circa 1830. Vast and crowded, rich in narrative irony and suspense, «Middlemarch» is richer still in character, in its sense of how individual destinies are shaped by and shape the community, and in the great art that enlarges the reader’s sympathy and imagination. It is truly, as Virginia Woolf famously remarked, ‘one of the few English novels written for grown-up people’.

Sugar

by Kevin Semeniuk

An unexpected journey of hope and friendship.

“Amazing! ‘Sugar’ makes you believe in miracles; the characters have you believing in them. I couldn’t put the book down, it was amazing!” – Christine on, ‘Sugar’

“Without reservation, I highly recommend â??Sugar’ by Kevin Semeniuk. From the opening sentence to the last, it was a very compelling story indeed. Three cheers for Hope!” – Sean on, ‘Sugar’

“This incredible author takes us on a journey of love, compassion, forgiveness and endurance . A story told with a gentle hand, humor, and a great love for his characters and the ability to take us on their adventure with them.”
– Barbara on, ‘Sugar’

“Another great book written by Kevin Semeniuk. It’s funny how we forget the simple things in life; we forget to dream and we don’t remember how to love. ‘Sugar’ brought those important things out of me. The author made it feel like I was the character ‘Poor Boy’ and it related to events in my life. Whether it was sharing a laugh or wiping a tear, he connects with his readers and you feel the emotions that the characters feel, and that in itself is amazing. I highly recommend this novel.”
– Kaled on, ‘Sugar’
