How often, on your morning commute in to work, do you see someone on the train reading a bright pink book? It doesn't happen very often, especially if the reader is over the age of, say, eight. Thanks to "Mad Dogs and Englishmen", you too can witness the impossible, if you happen to share your commute with a "Doctor Who" fan. I have to admit that one of the reasons I read this book in a ridiculously fast three days was so I could minimize the amount of time people would see me, an attorney at law, reading a bright pink novel with a pink, cigarette-smoking and pistol-packing poodle, on the cover.

To mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Janina Ramirez tells the story of three books that defined this radical religious revolution in England. Tyndale's New Testament, Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer and Foxe's Book of Martyrs are no longer commonly recognised titles, yet for nearly four hundred years these works formed the backbone of British life. Their words shaped the English language, fuelled religious division and sparked revolt. Nina discovers how the trio of texts had a powerful cumulative effect.

At just three days old, Kati Pohler was left on a street in the Chinese city of Suzhou. At the time, China's 'one-child policy' banned parents from having a second baby and many were abandoned. Kati's parents left a note with their daughter asking whoever raised her to bring her back to meet them at the 'Broken Bridge in Hangzhou' at a set date in the future. Kati was adopted by an American family and moved to the USA. Over twenty years later, she returns to China to meet her birth parents.
