Summary:

You are about to read a book like no other. Bloody Jack is a collection about the making and unmaking of story, of poetry and of history. Based loosely on the life of John Krafchenko, a notorious Manitoban outlaw, the poems of Bloody Jack turn fact and fiction upside down and inside out. Dennis Cooley has added more than a dozen new poems to this revised edition and Douglas Barbour has written an introduction. By turns earthy and earnest, soulful and sly, Bloody Jack is a rollicking, fun-filled riot of a volume by one of Canada's favourite poets. "Bloody Jack is back again, bigger, bolder, sweeter and even more outrageous." -David Arnason

Summary:

Orphan gangs in London’s Cheapside? Check. British warships? Check. Pirates? Check. Disguises? Check. Nautical adventures with a saucy heroine? Check. Embark on a swashbuckling adventure with the highly entertaining and endlessly cunning Jacky Faber, aka Bloody Jack. Once a dastardly London street urchin, Jacky alters her fate forever by sneaking on board a British warship and disguising herself as a ship’s boy. Jacky climbs ships’ rigging better than the rough-and-tumble boys of the navy, flirts her way out of the trouble she inevitably finds herself in, and ultimately lands herself at an elite school for girls in Boston. Jacky flits in and out of adventure and danger with pirates, real-life historical figures, and riotously funny fictitious friends. L. A. Meyer takes you on adrenaline-filled historical adventures through the eyes of a witty, brave, and lovable young woman determined to change her fate. Begin this adventurous and suspenseful series with the inaugural Bloody Jack novels. This starter pack contains three books: Bloody Jack, The Curse of the Blue Tattoo, and Under the Jolly Roger.

On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring mission—this time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things don't always go as planned. Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desires—until now.

Summary:

Godber Plays: 4 brings together four recent plays by one of Britain's most prolific, popular playwrights. The author is the artistic director of Hull Truck Theatre and the publication is timed to coincide with the opening of Hull Truck's new theatre building in the heart of Hull. In Our House May, a widow, mother and grandmother, is packing up her home of 45 years and heads for a life in the sun. However, trading neighbourhood hell for the Costa del Calm is no easy task as memories are harder to let go than possessions. First produced in 2007, the play was revived and toured the UK in 2008. In Crown Prince (2007) Godber finds comedy in a bowls club, and against the backdrop of the advancing years of its members, issues of redundancy, bereavement and guilt emerge. Sold is the author's most politically charged play to date, exposing the misery of people-trafficking and women sold into the sex-trade in Britain. Christmas Crackers follows overworked A&E nurses Holly and Kath on a shopping and booze trip to Prague where things take an unexpected turn. 'John Godber's work is unique; he is able to speak to a very broad audience in a way that is thought-provoking, exciting and always very funny.' Hilary Strong, Executive Director of Greenwich Theatre

Summary:

Jacky Faber makes waves, even when docked in her adopted city of Boston to attend to the business of Faber Shipping Worldwide.

Thwarted at every turn by her enemies, Jacky is forced to acknowledge her shortcomings—and possibly lose her beloved Jaimy Fletcher. Will the impulsive Jacky Faber finally get her comeuppance?
