Nominated for The People's Book Prize 2018. Felix, a tragic orphan, is expelled from school, cast out onto the British high street, and forced to make his way in the cutthroat world of wine retail. Thanks to a positive mental attitude, he is soon forging a promising career, his sensual adventures taking him to the vineyards of Italy, South Africa, Bulgaria, and Kent.His path to the summit, however, is littered with obstacles. Petty office politics, psychotic managers, and the British Board of Wine & Liquor prove challenging enough. But when Felix negotiates the world's biggest Asti Spumante deal, he is plunged into a vicious world of Mafiosi, people smuggling, and ruthless multinationals.Part thriller, part self-help manual, and part drinking companion, Corkscrew is a coruscating critique of neoliberal capitalism, religious intolerance, and the perils of blind tasting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Stafford-Bow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/123122/bk_acx0_123122_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

'This introductory study of global film examines film production modes around the world and the ways in which they combine and overlap with each other, and with Hollywood, in a dynamic global film market. Roy Stafford considers examples of production, distribution and exhibition from Europe, Africa, South Asia, East Asia and Latin America in order to demonstrate both how the international industry works within certain conventional modes and also how distinctive local conditions can enable forms of difference. The textbook combines three approaches: industry-based study, formal analysis of narrative, genre and representation, and discussion of reception and local film cultures. '--

Praise for Too Small to Ignore 'The heart of Compassion became so real and clear after reading this gripping saga of what a small child dramatically had to endure, which God has used to help the lives of countless children. Wess Stafford’s story is heartbreaking, yet full of the grace and love that God has for His little ones.' -Ned Lott, senior manager, Character Voices, Disney “The first time I met Wess, I perceived this undeniable compassion in his eyes. I listened to him talk about growing up in Africa and heard his compassion. But not until I read this book did I fully understand why communicating compassion is as natural to Wess as breathing is to the rest of us. His journey through pain and hurt reinforces the fact that God does indeed bring beauty from ashes, and compassion from heartache. -Tamara Lott, Compassion Sponsor “As I travel around the world, I see so many children in desperate straits–especially children with disabilities who are relegated to the lowest rung of the social ladder. My heart goes out to them! It’s my prayer that through Wess Stafford’s new book, a passion will ignite in the hearts of Christians around the globe to reach these little ones with his tender mercies and hands-on help.” –Joni Eareckson Tada, president of Joni and Friends “Too Small to Ignore is a wake-up call for all of us. It speaks to our responsibility to ‘the least of these.’ The truths in this book speak directly to the heart. If you want to understand children and why they matter to God, you have to read this book!” –Michael W. Smith, artist and songwriter “Nearly a half century ago in an African village, God was beginning to shape the destiny of one who would appear on the stage of life as a powerful voice and advocate for children of the world. Later his leadership skills would be sharpened in the soil of Haiti. Now, as president of Compassion International, Dr. Wess Stafford has written a compelling book of his own pilgrimage interwoven with the reminder of the importance Jesus placed upon children. It is a must-read that will inspire all hearts to join with Wess to champion the cause of children all over the world.” –Jim Groen, president of Global Connection International “At last–a book that has to be close to the heart of Jesus who affirmed the value of children….yet today, children are at risk all over the world. Read this and get your heart engaged in the priority enterprise of the coming generation!” –Joseph Stowell, teaching pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel and former president of Moody Bible Institute “Weaving a beautiful tapestry of his boyhood adventures in Africa and a lifetime of heartfelt ministry to children, Wess Stafford powerfully defends the cause of God’s children and implores us to take action on their behalf. The spiritual impact of future generations simply cannot be ignored–and we must take the lead. Please read this book–and don’t forget God’s children.” –Ted Haggard, president of National Evangelicals Association and senior pastor of New Life Church “What a joy it has been to be an advocate for the wonderful ministry of Compassion International! In the same way, it is an absolute delight for me to speak of my friend and mentor, Wess Stafford. This is a man of integrity whose heart overflows with love for hurting children and, above all, for our God. You cannot meet this godly man without being challenged and encouraged. Prepare to be moved.” –Rebecca St. James, artist, songwriter, and author “Some books are meant to be skimmed, others to be read carefully. Wess Stafford’s new book is to be savored, underlined, highlighted, and meditated over. It’s full of wonderful stories and profound insights. Too Small to Ignore is a great book, written with the energy and verve of a man who knows kids and passionately loves them.” –Bill Armstrong, former U.S. senator “For Wess Stafford, ministering to the neediest children in
