Alfie Jolly is 59 and unhappy with his life. More specifically, with his birthdays. You see, none of them have been any good and with his sixtieth on its way, Alfie can’t help but think he’s been wronged. Spur of the moment, Alfie decides he wants to return/recycle all of his old birthdays. The only trick now is to find out how. A trip the North Pole, a chat with Father Christmas, and a flight to Egypt later, Alfie meets Father Birthday who, eventually, agrees to help turn back the clock. Literally. Suddenly Alfie is a child again, reliving each birthday and making new and better memories. Like in 1966 when he and his family travel to Disney World, or go to the fair in 1967 or when he relives the moon landing where the love his life, pretty Suzy Gentry, sits next to him on the sofa. His life is great with dancing again in classes and racing around with his twin, but it isn’t long before shadows start creeping in to this dream childhood of never-ending birthdays. Is it a case of be careful what you wish for or be grateful for every moment you have – before it ends?

During the Second World War, Winston Churchill won two resounding victories. The first was a victory over Nazi Germany, the second a victory over the legion of sceptics who had derided his judgement, denied his claims to greatness, and excluded him from high office on the grounds that he was sure to be a danger to King and Country. In this incisive new biography, Paul Addison examines both the life of the most iconic figure in twentieth-century British history, and also the battle over his reputation, which continues to this day.

'Provocative, clear-sighted, richly textured and wonderfully readable, this is the indispensable biography of Churchill for the post-Brexit 2020s' DAVID KYNASTON 'Stimulating, erudite and above all entertaining' ROBERT HARRIS In A.J.P. Taylor's words, Churchill was 'the saviour of his country' when he became prime minister in 1940. Yet he was also a deeply flawed character, whose personal ambition would cloud his political judgement. While Churchill's Shadow gives due credit to the achievements, it also reveals some spectacular failures; indeed, it appears that for every Finest Hour there were many more Gallipolis. But this book goes beyond the reappraisal of a life and a career: it reveals that Churchill has cast a complex shadow over post-war British history and contemporary politics - from the 'Churchillian stance' of Tony Blair taking the country to war in Iraq to the delusion of a special relationship with the United States to the fateful belief in British exceptionalism: that the nation can once again stand alone in Europe. Geoffrey Wheatcroft takes a radically different approach to other biographies and studies of Churchill, zooming in on crucial moments in his life that help us understand the man in his many contradictions. Churchill's Shadow both tells the story of his extraordinary life and the equally fascinating one of his legacy, focusing on how Churchill was viewed by contemporaries and those who came after. As we struggle to work out who we are as a nation, how our complex legacies of war and empire shape our past and our present, we do that in the long shadow of Churchill. He set about writing his own myth during his lifetime and it is a myth - with all the delusions and hangovers myths bring - in whose grip we have been living in ever since.
