Bobby Henrey was eight when he was improbably chosen by film director Carol Reed and producer Sir Alexander Korda to star alongside Sir Ralph Richardson inThe Fallen Idolbased on a Graham Greene story. Released in 1948, the film was an instant box office success; the child's performance was singled out for critical acclaim and it remains one of the classics of British cinema. His brief film career over, the erstwhile star, an only child brought up within an exclusively adult world by eccentric parents focused on their literary careers, was suddenly confronted with the rough and tumble of school life. Survival came at the cost of burying the experience, pretending - unsuccessfully - it had never happened: an attitude Robert carried into adulthood. The death of his 19-year-old daughter and an invitation to a special screening ofThe Fallen Idolin London in 2001 finally persuaded him to come to terms with his childhood experience. Through Grown Up Eyesis a remarkably moving and candid account of coping with childhood stardom in post-war London and the vicissitudes of later life in the USA, tragedy and loss. It is ultimately about survival, treasuring the good things of life - and allowing hope to have the last word.

We woke up with a bowl of cereal to Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans on the Motorola and were to bed with a transistor radio on out pillow after the Ed Sullivan Show and Gunsmoke. In between we played hop scotch, marbles and jumped roped. We roller skated- if we could find the key that helped hook them to our hard-sole shoes- on the smoothest sidewalks in the neighborhood and built tents over the family clothesline. We played hide-and-seek and kick the can, and when day turned into dusk and we'd finished with dinner, there was spotlight t reunite us for an hour or so until it was time to return home. We dove in piles of leaves in the fall, rode sleds down the biggest hill we could find in the winter, and played in the pool, lake or stream until we had only enough energy to peddle our Huffy or Schwinn home at the end of those long summer days. And if we couldn't go outside, we played Old Maid, Fish, Monopoly and Clue or put a stack of 45's on the RCA Victor in our room. Growing up in the 1960's was idyllic. For most of us any way. Some, though............

Here are portraits of three very different Victorian women, all of whom married men of exceptional talent, energy and genius. To be the wife of such frenetic, explosive characters as David Livingstone, Karl Marx or Charles Darwin, especially at this period in history, demanded rare qualities. Yet the late twentieth-century view of these women is perhaps best summed up in the frequently heard comment: 'I didn't know he had a wife.' The mid-nineteenth century was a time of unprecedented movement and upheaval. The revolutions of 1848 set Europe ablaze and sent swarms of political dissidents to seek freedom outside their homelands. Britain and her Empire were ruled by a young Queen Victoria, inspired by her enterprising, vigorous consort, Albert; it was a climate in which invention and discovery were encouraged. Men were creating new frontiers, both geographically and intellectually, and where they went their wives and families accompanied them.

Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and a little out of place. As the only child on a film set full of adults, she started out with accidental fame and journeyed to relative (but happy) obscurity, learning a lot about growing up along the way. Her collection of essays illuminates a universal struggle: learning to accept yourself and figuring out where you belong. Exquisitely crafted, revelatory, and full of the crack comic timing that has made Wilson a sought-after storyteller and Twitter star, Where Am I Now introduces a witty, perceptive new voice.
