Was this the work of a poison-pen? Or of a poisoner?

    Set in the turbulent times of 12th century England where civil war, famine, religious strife, and battles over royal succession tore lives and families apart, The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of the building of a magnificent cathedral. Against this richly imagined backdrop, filled with intrigue and treachery, Ken Follett draws the reader irresistibly into a wonderful epic of family drama, violent conflict, and unswerving ambition.

    The Complete Short Stories is a collection to be loved and cherished, from one of the finest short-story writers of the twentieth century. From the cruel irony of A member of the Family to the fateful echoes of The Go-Away Bird and the unexpectedly sinister The Girl I Left Behind Me, in settings that range from South Africa to the Portobello Road, Muriel Spark coolly probes the idiosyncrasies that lurk beneath the veneer of human respectability, displaying the acerbic wit and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her unique talent.

    Everyone has a story. The following interview is taken from the best of Andrew Denton's award-winning Enough Rope series, ranking among the most penetrating discussions from the 2000s with celebrities, larger-than-life personalities, and average Joes. There's a theory that people become actors so they can pretend to be people more interesting than they are. Richard E. Grant disproves this entirely. His life is so compelling that it begged to become a movie, so he wrote it, directed it, but, for once, didn't star in it.
