The autobiography of Damon Hill "Watching The Wheels".
I've just finished read Hamlet which is an old book written about a hundred years ago. It's about this bloke who, quite frankly, seems to have rather a lot of issues going on and who can't tell a hawk from a handsaw when the wind is nor-nor-east. His bird just can't cope so she tops herself because he fancies his mum. Mind you, I wouldn't kick her out myself.
Senna versus Prost by Malcolm Folley.
The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters
An award-winning instant classic.
I haven't read anything by Sarah Waters before but I might start chasing up some of previous novels now.
Son of Black Beauty by Phyllis Briggs
Proving that the unnecessary sequel is not a recent Hollywood invention, this was published in 1950, 73 years after Anna Sewell's original. That said, Phyllis Briggs does a good job a capturing the tone, albeit with a somewhat darker tale, although right on the first page she oddly has her protagonist throw doubt on whether he really is Beauty's son at all.
The Truth of the Matter by Gough Whitlam
Inside account of the still-controversial dismissal of the Whitlam Labor Government in Australia in 1975, written by the former Prime Minister himself.
