Auger, Michel.              The Biker Who Shot Me: Recollections of a Crime Reporter (Locale: Quebec.)

McClelland & Stewart 0-7710-0877-5 2002, 1st edition. (Hardcover) ... Near fine in very good dust jacket. ... Remainder mark on tail. ... On September 13, 2000, Michel Auger was walking away from his car in a parking lot across the street from the offices of le Journal de Montréal when he was shot in the back six times. Miraculously, although at least one bullet lodged in his spine, no vital organs were damaged. Auger was on his feet again within weeks, and able to resume his normal life.The practice of journalism is dangerous in many parts of the world. But in Canada? The idea that an assassin would attempt to take the life of a journalist because of something he wrote is almost unthinkable. Either a deadly new threat has appeared on the scene or Michel Auger has learned something that is truly dangerous to know. Or perhaps both propositions are true.Michel Auger has been a crime reporter for some 30 years. He has covered mafia trials and corruption scandals, notorious murders and government inquiries. What he has seen and recorded has ranged from the sordid to the bizarre. He has interviewed notorious criminals, like Alvin "Creepy" Karpis, a member of the Ma Barker gang whose capture helped make J. Edgar Hoover's name, and infamous Canadians, like the Montreal drug dealer Lucien Rivard, who escaped from Bordeaux jail while awaiting extradition to the United States. He has travelled to the Far East to see for himself where the drug trade begins, and to Sicily where he traced the origins of organized crime. Michel Auger's knowledge of Canada's underworld is as comprehensive as that of any reporter alive.In recent years he has developed a particular interest in the criminal activities of biker gangs, especially the Hell's Angels and their rivals, the Rock Machine. Without a doubt, it was his series of articles in the spring of 2000 about the growing links between the Angels and other criminal organizations that led to the attempt on his life. Both the threat to civil society posed by the Angels and Michel Auger's knowledge of their affairs had become so great that violence was the natural outcome. But, amazingly, Michel Auger survived the attempt on his life. In this frank, fascinating, and sometimes funny memoir, he tells about the bad guys he has known, the strange scenes he has witnessed, and above all, the true story of his deadly encounter with the bikers. ...

Brooke, Sylvia.              Queen of the Head Hunters: The Autobiography of H.H. The Hon. Sylvia Brooke, Ranee of Sarawak

Sphere 0-7221-1882-1 1972, 1st thus. (Mass market paperback) ... Very good. ... Some spine and cover wear and creasing. ... Publishers Weekly writes: This enchanting autobiography by the last Ranee of Sarawak is graced by wit, style, tough-minded candor and a glowing, affectionate spirit that should move and delight readers. Sylvia Brooke's narrative spans 80 years, and is a unique personal history enriched by vivid anecdotes too marvellous to have been contrived. The exotic heart of her memoirs is her story of her marriage to Vyner Brooke, last of a long tyrannical line of White Rajahs of Sarasak, and her long years as his consort among primitive people in a Land she instantly recognised as "home". Of her womanizing husband, who had girls until he was 87, she says with abiding affection, "you have to admire a man like that".
