My name is Liz, and I am the partner of an alcoholic. Coming Clean is a searingly honest memoir of loving an alcoholic – both through the heaviest drinking years and into recovery. When Liz Fraser's partner fell into a catastrophic vortex of depression and alcoholism, Liz found herself in a relentless hailstorm of lies, loneliness and fear, looking after their young child on her own, heartbroken, mentally shattered and with no idea what was happening or what to do. As she and her family moved between Cambridge, Venice and Oxford, she kept the often shocking truth entirely to herself for a long time, trying in vain to help her partner find a path to sobriety, until she herself finally broke from the trauma and started to speak out – only to find she was one of hundreds experiencing similar things, also living in silence and fear. Part diary, part travel journal and part love letter, Coming Clean is the true story of addiction of many kinds, mental collapse and heartbreak. Above all, it offers a voice of deep human compassion, strength and hope for recovery. I hope that in sharing this story it might change the way addiction is talked about and understood from both sides, encourage open, trusting and supportive dialogue between addicts and those their addiction affects, and provide some solace and help for those who need it – as I did.

He also follows them to the Third Battle of Ypres and Cambrai, for which they were granted the title "Royal" - the only army unit to receive such a distinction during World War I.

The Day Nicholas Was Snatched by J.V. Thomas J. V. Thomas compiled The Day Nicholas Was Snatched for the general interest of the public to provide insight into government and the “Secret Court” of children and families, exposing the corruption that takes on a major role in ordinary family cases. The poorer classes in society are taken advantage of by social services with the illegal backing of police. Families are bullied and forced into abdicating their duties and legal rights to their children due to the illegal behavior in court law. Conspirators work closely to steal children, using racism, corruption, and other injustices. This institutional racism surmounts in the secret court. Cases that are supported by legal aid, end up penalized. The Day Nicholas Was Snatched holds social services accountable for stealing children from the poorer social classes through corruption and institutional racism. J. V. Thomas reveals the bullying practiced in the secret court.
