Elijah's Cup by Stephen Gold!

On the night when we celebrate our exodus from Egypt, we also express our absolute belief in the coming of the Messiah. 
On this night I found my own Messiah in alcohol.
I was six years old………

Elijah’s Cup is the dramatic true story of a young Jewish boy’s experience of growing up in a Jewish family in North West London.
“An honest account with exerts from original material.”
“A profound and thought provoking book in which the author expresses his very personal and emotionally charged attitudes and beliefs towards addiction and the illness behind it.”

The Minger's Tale!

I'm delighted to feature THE MINGER'S TALE by R.B.N. Bookmark! 

About the author: 

Ribban Bookmark is one of life`s misfits. Born in Manchester, in the UK during the late 1950`s to Irish immigrants. He realised early on in life that his ladder to success was missing some rungs - in fact most of them. His search for life`s greener pastures hampered by his colour-blindness. After 56 years of circling the literary worlds perimeter fence, like a dog looking for somewhere to urinate. He stopped one night in August 2014. "A Minger`s Tale-Beginnings" was the result of that nights urination. This is his story, part one.

About the book: 

If only he knew where God lived, he would urinate in his letterbox!
Growing up is a difficult time in the life of Ribban Bookmark, this book traces his journey down a Minger Highway, signposted with humour and littered with roadkill oneliners.

A few of the many 5* reviews: 

"A minger’s tale is an honest account, from an honest gentleman, who has lived. I guarantee this is a star who will shine bright in the near future. Congrats Ribban Bookmark, and thanks!"

"From the beginning of A Minger’s Tale, the author paints a very clear picture of life in Manchester as a child. I could totally imagine him leaving his chud (chewing gum) in the girl’s hair who sat before him in the cinema. I can easily see this book appealing to those who have lived or worked in Manchester but it is written in a way that even those not from the area who do not know the slang etc will still enjoy it. From page one it is a witty and entertaining read."

"A fantastic book. A great story told by a fabulous author. A story that will test all your emotions from laughter to sympathy. Well worth a go."
