Maya Lowe is one of the world's biggest movie stars. Steve Watkins is her life-long friend. Both swear their relationship hasn't changed since they shared a school desk as London teenagers. But can a friendship like theirs really survive a fame as great as Maya's? Can a man like Steve, working away for a Heathrow logistics company, seriously remain part of her life? He certainly thinks so. But amid the twists and turns of Maya's public and private lives, the gulf between what Steve thinks and what is actually true gets ever wider. And in a world where the obsession with celebrity seems to make everyone want to be one, truth is hard to find
My name is .. by Alastair Campbell ( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A drink makes me feel better. For a bit. And then I feel worse, and the pain inside comes back. Worse than ever. My name is Hannah. This is their story...My name is Kate. I am Hannah's mum. 'If nothing matters more to a parent than their children's health and happiness, how are you supposed to feel, and what are you supposed to do, when they're sick and unhappy?' My name is Vicki. I am Hannah's little sister. 'Why does she drink so much, when it is making her so ill, doing so much damage to her life? I don't get it.' My name is Sophie. I am Hannah's best friend. 'I loved her to bits those times when she was chatty and fun and making me laugh or think about the world differently.' My name is Dan. I was Hannah's mum's first boyfriend after her divorce. 'I tried, I really tried. But there's something wrong with that girl. If I'd have had any idea of what I was letting myself in for, I never would have asked Kate out.' My name is Amanda. I am Sophie's mother. 'She was like the outsider insider of Sophie's friendship group. I liked her though and being a parent, and a doctor, my instinct was to want to fix whatever it was that reduced her to this mess.' Powerful and passionate, My Name Is ...is the gripping story of a teenage girl's descent into alcoholism and the impact it has on those around her. Deft and direct, the voices of Hannah's family, friends and professionals, shed a sometimes shocking, sometimes tender light on a life veering terrifyingly off course

But now his life is falling apart ... - Container
The Blair years : extracts from the Alastair Campbell diaries by Alastair Campbell ( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The "Blair Years" is the most compelling and revealing account of contemporary politics you will ever read. Taken from Alastair Campbell's daily diaries, it charts the rise of New Labour and the tumultuous years of Tony Blair's leadership, providing the first important record of a remarkable decade in our national life. Here are the defining events of our time, from Labour's new dawn to the war on terror, from the death of Diana to negotiations for peace in Northern Ireland, from Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq, through to the Hutton Inquiry of 2003, the year Campbell resigned his position at No 10. But above all here is Tony Blair up close and personal, taking the decisions that affected the lives of millions, under relentless and often hostile pressure. Often described as the second most powerful figure in Britain, Alastair Campbell is no stranger to controversy. Feared and admired in equal measure, hated by some, he was pivotal to the founding of New Labour and the sensational election victory of 1997. As Blair's press secretary, strategist and trusted confidant, Campbell spent more waking hours alongside the Prime Minister than anyone. His diaires - at times brutally frank, often funny, always compelling - take the reader right to the heart of government. "The Blair Years" is a story of politics in the raw, of progress and setback, of reputations made and destroyed, under the relentless scrutiny of a 24-hour media. Unflinchingly told, it covers the crises and scandals, the rows and resignations, the ups and downs of Britain's hothouse politics. But amid the big events are insights and observations that make this a remarkably human portrayal of some of the most powerful people in the world. There has never been so riveting a book about life at the very top, nor a more human book about politics, told by a man who saw it all
