This Is This Country

This Is This Country

The award-winning BBC comedy This Country documents the day-to-day lives of young cousins Kerry and Lee 'Kurtan' Mucklowe who live in a small village in the Cotswolds. Filmed in the same mocumentary style as The Office, the show follows them as they interact with the other residents of their claustrophobic Cotswold village: the local vicar (and one-time 80s popstar), Reverend Francis Seaton; aspiring tattoo artist, bodyguard and S Club 7 fan, Mandy Harris; and self-confessed peeper and bookies' favourite for Worst Father in Britain, Martin Mucklowe. Described by the Guardian's Lucy Mangan as 'perfection', Helen Bownass in Stylist as 'the funniest show on TV' and Simon Horsford in the Daily Telegraph as 'superb', This Country has run for two series and is already a smash hit with viewers, winning three BAFTA awards (for Best Comedy Writers, Best Scripted Comedy and Best Female Performance in a Comedy) and three RTS Programme Awards. The recent iPlayer special garnered 5 million streams alone. Now, this autumn, comes the first official tie-in. In keeping with the mocumentary style of the show, and in the manner of best TV comedy books, This Is This Country is a hilarious 'in world' spoof, and a parody of local parish newsletters. Featuring, among others, 'Kerry's Village Tw*t List', the vicar's poetry, a log of all the times Kerry and Kurtan have seen Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen around the village, Mandy's correspondence to her adopted dog Digby, Kerry's neighbourhood watch diary, and hilarious adverts, notices and pictures of village life, This is This Country is as brilliantly observed as the show itself and a must-have for fans.

This Country

This Country

A “quintessentially American” (Policy Magazine) memoir of politics and history from Chris Matthews, New York Times bestselling author and long-time host of MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews. In This Country, Chris Matthews “has written a love letter to his country” (Joy Reid, host of The ReidOut and author of The Man Who Sold America), offering a panoramic portrait of post-World War II America through the story of his remarkable life and career. It is a story of risk and adventure, of self-reliance and service, of loyalty and friendship. It is a story driven by an abiding faith in our country. Raised in a large Irish-Catholic family in Philadelphia at a time when kids hid under their desks in atomic war drills, Chris’s life etched a pattern: take a leap, live an adventure, then learn what it means. As a young Peace Corps graduate, Chris moved to DC and began knocking on doors on Capitol Hill. With dreams of becoming what Ted Sorensen had been for Jack Kennedy, Chris landed as a staffer to Utah Senator Frank Moss, where his eyes were opened to the game of big-league politics. In the 1970s, Matthews mounted a campaign for Congress as a Democratic maverick running against Philadelphia’s old political machine. He didn’t win the most votes, but his grit put him on the path to a top job in the White House. As a speechwriter for President Carter, Matthews witnessed the triumphs and tragedies of that administration; from the diplomatic brilliance of the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty to the disaster of the Iran hostage crisis. After Carter’s defeat, Chris became chief of staff to legendary Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill, a perch that gave him an on-the-job PhD in American politics during the Reagan years. Chris than leapt to the other side of the political matrix as a columnist and reporter. For the San Francisco Examiner, he covered the fall of the Berlin Wall, the first all-races election in South Africa, the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland, and every American presidency from Reagan to George W. Bush. Chris would go on to pioneer cable news with a fast-paced, no-nonsense television program. His show, Hardball with Chris Matthews, would become a political institution for twenty years. As Chris charts his political odyssey, he paints an animated picture of a nation searching for its soul. He reflects with grace and wisdom, showcasing the grand arc of the American story through one life dedicated to its politics.

Don T Burn This Country

Don T Burn This Country

A guide for anyone who wants to revive the American dream while the woke mob tries to burn down the country. You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to see that something dark is happening in America. Just look around: Massive corporations monitor our every move. The Thought Police stand ready to cancel any who dare think for themselves. Brainwashed activists openly attack the American experiment. The dystopian future we've been warned of is here. Dave Rubin has been on the front lines of the culture wars for years. Now, he offers tactics you can use to protect yourself from today’s authoritarian rule—from resisting the grip of Big Tech to staying sane in a post-truth world. What’s more, he offers a vision for the next generation of patriots who will need to face the future head-on, holding fast to their values and creating a meaningful life no matter how frenzied and fabricated the news of the day is. In order for free-thinking people to thrive in this era of woke lunacy, we need to step up and create freedom for ourselves. While exposing Progressive lies and offering practical advice you can employ right now, this book is a call for Americans to live the freest life possible—and a roadmap for saving the greatest country in the history of the world.
