The Soup Movement

Author: Ben Davis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/08/2020

To aid his recovery from a life-threatening illness Ethan and his family move out of the city for a healthy new start. Ethan's getting enough funny looks as the new boy at school as it is, without his Mum giving him homemade soup every day for lunch! But when Ethan meets a homeless man called Harry, and gives him the soup, it is the start of an unlikely friendship. Soon the two of them begin giving soup to the other homeless people around town and when his sister shares their antics on Instagram the #SOUPMOVEMENT begins-they even make it on the news!

Repertory Movie Theaters of New York City

Repertory Movie Theaters of New York City

Author: Ben Davis Format: eBook Release Date: 07/04/2017

New York's repertory movie houses specialized in presenting films ignored by mainstream and art house audiences. Curating vintage and undistributed movies from various countries, they educated the public about the art of film at a time when the cinema had begun to be respected as an art form. Operating on shoestring budgets in funky settings, each repertory house had its own personality, reflecting the preferences of the (often eccentric) proprietor. While a few theaters existed in other cities, New York offered the greatest number and variety. Focusing on the active years from 1960 through 1994, this book documents the repertory movement in the context of economics and film culture.

The Private Blog of Joe Cowley: Welcome to Cringefest

The Private Blog of Joe Cowley: Welcome to Cringefest

Author: Ben Davis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/03/2016

Right blog. I'm back! Let's not waste time with pleasantries - there is absolutely NOTHING pleasant about my life right now. Reasons why everything is terrible: 1. The love of my life, AKA Natalie, still hates me all because of one tiny - OK, huge - mistake. 2. Natalie has now started hanging around with my so-called 'friend' Greeny. Since January, he's lost about half of his body weight and now girls actually fancy him! 3. Harry, Ad, and Greeny AKA The Sound Experience have had a top ten dance hit with a sample of my voice saying 'I'm as gay as the day is long'. Still, at least there's Buzzfest to look forward to. Who knows, once we're there, amid all the beautiful people, scenery and music, Natalie might realise I am the love of her life and return into my waiting arms. On the other hand, it could just be full of weirdos, overflowing toilets from hell, and death metal . . . Joe Cowley is back! And this time it's even more butt-clenchingly embarrassing and excrutiating than before. From a 'Grand Gesture' involving Star Trek costumes and the school boyband, to being trapped in a portaloo that's about to be pushed over. Joe's completely up to his neck in it - literally! Welcome to Cringefest . . .
