Gary Shail I Think I m on the Guest List Book Description :

I was first introduced to this larger than life character back in 1979, albeit through a projector onto the silver screen, Quadrophenia, the film that launched a 1000 faces. 18 years later, I would finally meet this totally outrageous person who became one of my closest friends, lush, side kick, partner in crime and mentalist. A man who would have a huge impact on my life, from sharing a gay Ted Baker tent in Brighton and keeping the whole campsite awake, singing at the tops of our voices in west end bars, TV interviews, book launches, film premiers, marathon drinking sessions and crazy weekend parties that Keith Moon would have been proud of! A man who has worked with the cream of fine actors and rock royalty. A man that can instantly lift you out o...

Fast Living Book Description :

"Be proud of everything that you do, or have a fucking damn good reason for doing something which you're not proud of." (Gary Holton to Danny Baker, NME, November 1984, a year before his death) A true rock 'n' roll casualty, Gary Holton packed a lot into his thirty-three years, including fronting proto-punk legends, Heavy Metal Kids, and playing a leading role in one of the most revered TV dramas of its day. Drawing on her own recollections and first-hand accounts of others who knew him, Teddie Dahlin completes the picture of a man who never outran his demons but who, in the process, gave a lot of pleasure and some little anguish to those who surrounded him. Born in East End London, Holton became a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company at an early ...

Rethinking Agency Book Description :

This book proposes a new theoretical framework for agency thinking by examining the ethical, discursive and practical engagements of a group of women development workers in north-west India with developmentalism and individual rights. Rethinking Agency asks an underexplored question, tracks the entry, encounter, experience and practice of developmentalism and individual rights, and examines their normative and political trajectory. Through an ethnography of a moral encounter with developmentalism, it raises a critical question: how do we think of agency in oppressive contexts? Further, how do issues of risk, injury, coercion and oppression alter the conceptual mechanics of agency itself? The work will be invaluable to research organisations, developm...

Puppet Boy Book Description :

A school in turmoil over its senior play, a sly career as a teenage gigolo, an unpredictable girlfriend with damage of her own, and a dangerous housebreaker tied up downstairs. Any of these would make a great plot for budding filmmaker Eric?s first movie. Unfortunately, they?re his real life. When Julien, a handsome wannabe actor, transfers to Eric?s class, he?s a distraction, a rival, and one complication too many. Yet Eric can?t stop thinking about him. Helped by Eric?s girlfriend, Mary, they embark on a project that dangerously crosses the line between filmmaking and reality. As the boys become close, Eric soon wants to cross other lines entirely. Does Julien feel the same way, or is Eric being used on the gleefully twisted path to fame?...
