"Thoughtfully traces [Mara Wilson's] journey from child actress to Hollywood dropout...Who is she now? She's a writer." —NPR's "Guide To 2016’s Great Reads" “Growing up, I wanted to be Mara Wilson. Where Am I Now? is a delight.” —Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City Named a best book of the month by GoodReads and Entertainment Weekly A former child actor best known for her starring roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and out of place: as the only kid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything from what she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. They also illuminate universal struggles, like navigating love and loss, and figuring out who you are and where you belong. Candid, insightful, moving, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up female.

Absence of Women 'A fine example of theatre at its small-scale best.' Evening Standard Titanic 'Owen McCafferty's rigorous verbatim play provides an antidote to Titanic fatigue... Two months of hearings from 97 witnesses are whittled down to nine... What remains, even after a century, is a disturbing sense of moral ambiguity: 1, 517 dead and no one to blame.' Guardian Quietly 'Vibrates with a violent tension so taut that if you were a bystander... you'd hardly dare to breathe.' New York Times 'Remarkable. inspired. The piece packs sweeping questions about forgiveness and accountability into a tightly plotted encounter.' Daily Telegraph 'The most powerful theatrical production I have had the privilege of seeing... McCafferty's script is perfectly taut... This play is extraordinary and completely unmissable.' Metro Herald Unfaithful 'McCafferty excels with tight plotting and pithy, painful dialogue.' The Times 'McCafferty writes with empathy and a wry humour that makes for an absorbing - if painful - hour.' Financial Times 'Owen McCafferty is a sly observer of the human heart.' Guardian Death of a Comedian 'Despite the humour, McCafferty's play is a tragedy. his most accomplished work to date.' Belfast Telegraph

"Whilst we can't deny the existence of ladders in life, we should never be so taken over with the desire to climb that we allow it to overcome the desire to be loved and rest on the rungs where we are now. No earthly ladder can ever take us closer to God, only God can draw us closer to Himself." 'Horizontal Ladders' reflects the author's wonderfully colourful and agile mind. Readers should expect the unexpected. From the experiences and joy of the birth of his children, to the struggles of mental health, from the teachings of Genesis, to dealing with the grief of losing a loved one, this is a great collection of God-inspired thoughts. Vince Lee is a Christian father of four wonderful children, husband to an amazing wife and has Rapid Cycling Bipolar Disorder. Since being diagnosed he has spent time in quiet Suffolk, collating many years of writings and poetry to form this book. In characteristically modest fashion, he describes this book as 'random', like him and like life!
