´King George Street in Charlton, South London, was my first home. Six prefabs, three pubs, a school, a church and a yard where the electricity board kept cables. Two long rows of terraced houses faced each other at one end of the street, and at the other, big houses with big doors and even bigger windows. There was a phone box next to one of the pubs, and when it rang everyone came out to see who it was for. It was a tiny road - at one end of which there was Greenwich Park. It was heaven being there; its beauty always shone on me from the trees at sunsets and from the bushes in the rain. I was there in all weathers. It was 1964, I was 10 years old and this is when my memory really begins. The previous decade is built up from vague recollections that lean heavily on the imagination.´ Chris Difford is a rare breed. As a member of one of London´s best-loved bands, the Squeeze cofounder has made a lasting contribution to English music with hits such as ´Cool for Cats´, ´Up the Junction´, ´Labelled with Love´, ´Hourglass´ and ´Tempted´. Some Fantastic Place is his evocative memoir of an upbringing in South London in the ´60s and his rise to fame in one of the definitive bands of the late ´70s and early ´80s.

Squeeze the Moment:Making the Most of Life´s Gifts and Challenges Karen O´Connor
Laurence Shames’ funny, elegantly written, and hip thrillers have topped best-seller lists across the country, and earned him a leading role as a writer of ´´Florida noir” with Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen. When Island Frigate advertising rep Suki Sperakis decides to write an exposé on the Key West black market, she is strangled and left for dead in the trunk of a car sinking slowly into the Gulf of Mexico. Soon her only chance at survival rests on the senile Sam Katz and octogenarian ex-mobster Bert the Shirt who must infiltrate the Russian Mafia posing as a gay couple from New York. Will Bert and Sam succeed, or is Suki doomed to once again sleep with the fishes? Richard Ferrone brings every character to life—from the cigar-smoking Island Frigate editor to a man named Pineapple who lives in a fiberglass hotdog—to help make Mangrove Squeeze one of Shames’ sharpest, tangiest, and most engaging audiobooks to date. 1.

The high spot of Teddy Folger´s life was the day in 1954 that he got an autographed baseball card from Joe DiMaggio himself. It´s been downhill ever since. Which is why he just unloaded his freeloading wife and torched his own comic-book store - in one of the stupidest insurance scams in history. Enter Conner Samson. The down-on-his-luck repo man has just been hired to repossess Teddy´s boat. Little does he know there´s a baseball card on board that some men are willing to kill for. Thus begins a rip-roaring cross-country odyssey - and with bodies piling up, the squeeze is on for the penultimate piece of Americana. And Conner will be lucky if he ends up back where he started: broke and (still) breathing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Wray.
