Book Summary:

It is 1964 and Faye Bynum, the spunky journalistic prodigy of Time and Chance and Morgans Eddy, is facing the onset of middle age and the resolution of questions that she has, until now, been able to defer. Fayes companion, Forde Morgan, is pressing her to marry him and bear children. Her fearless editorial stances are earning her the enmity of powerful men who will not hesitate to silence her through violence and murder. Unfortunately Faye is ambivalent about what she sees as a choice between marriage and the end of her writing career and loneliness. As she reflects, she discovers there is only a single lines difference between a lover and a loner. When a beating and near-rape in retaliation for a pro-union editorial sends her away from Gabbro in search of solace and healing, Faye is led to the one capable of fulfilling her deepest needs. But at what cost? In the final story in a compelling trilogy, an aging prodigy must face the irreversible choices that come with middle age and learn to live and love in defeat as in victory.

Book Summary:

Hundreds of ordinary Canadians tell their own stories in this book. They tell them in their own words, and the impact is astonishing. As page after page of unforgettable stories rolls by, it is easy to see why this book sold 300,000 copies and why a successful stage play that ran for years was based on them. The stories, and the 52 accompanying photographs, tell of an extraordinary time. One tells how a greedy Maritime landlord ho tried to raise a widow's rent was tarred and gravelled; another how rape by the boss was part of a waitress's job. Other stories show Saskatchewan families watching their farms turn into deserts and walking away from them; or freight-trains black with hoboes clinging to them, criss-crossing the country in search of work; or a man stealing a wreath for his own wife's funeral. Throughout this portrait of the era before Canada had a social safety net, there are amazing stories of what Time magazine called "human tragedy and moral triumph during the hardest of times." In the end, this is an inspiring, uplifting book about bravery, one you will not forget.

Book Summary:

Swaziland is where you think, for the first time, maybe if I got brain fever I would be able to stop worrying. I’d lose control and, maybe then, I’d understand my friend’s mind. In an attempt to break free from rationality and make her life a work of art, Gigi Fenster decides to induce a fever in herself. Fever, she surmises, is a ‘particularly writerly thing’. What follows is a captivating memoir of that attempt. Feverish ranges over Fenster’s childhood in South Africa, her relationships with her psychiatrist father, her troubled friend Simon, and her mother and four siblings, through to New Zealand and her relationships with her two teenage daughters. As she traverses her life, Fenster asks questions about bravery, transgression, vulnerability and the value we place on art.This memoir is a witty, intelligent, original examination of what it means to be a compassionate human being. ‘Without empathy,’ she writes, ‘one cannot tell the full story. There can be no proper care.’

Book Summary:

A single father’s worst nightmare… Clive Yates has been a single father for the past five years, raising his young kids on his own after their mother abandoned them. But his whole world is shattered the moment they’re taken, and the police inform him the M.O. resembles that of a long-dormant serial killer of children. The dangerous forest outside of Midsummer is massive, and with no idea where to search, he fears his kids might not be found in time. But there is one person who has seen the killer’s face, a girl who escaped with her brother so many years ago. She survived what no child should ever suffer… Fifteen years ago, Greta Weaver and her foster brother were abducted and brought to a cabin of horrors deep in the forest. They escaped, but just barely, both with scars that have made growing up difficult. She’s tried to make a life for herself outside her childhood town, though nightmares plague her sleep and she’s kept herself isolated. Her abductor—almost killer—was never caught, and part of her always remained lost in those woods, afraid of what would happen if he found her. When Clive comes to her for help, she just wants to hide from the world, but can’t bear the thought of seeing a parent lose his children. She’ll have to confront her fears–and her past–if Clive is ever going to see his kids again.

Book Summary:

Gus Dury is a changed man. He is off the Edinburgh streets and back with estranged wife, Debs. He has promised her that he won’t get involved in any more dodgy cases which the police can’t or won’t solve. And above all, he’s off the drink. In his pocket at all times is a half bottle of Scotch, but although the label is worn to shreds, he has never so much as loosened the cap. Then his brother Michael is found dead with a bullet in his heart and Gus’ life begins to unravel all over again. How can he keep the promises he has made and still avenge his brother’s murder? Praise for LOSS: “Tony Black is my favourite British crime writer and Gus Dury the genre’s most interesting protagonist. Like his previous books, Loss has the power, style and street swagger that makes most of his contemporaries a little bland by comparison.” —Irvine Welsh “Tony Black has written two of the finest crime novels to come out of the UK in the past twenty years and I’m willing to bet that in twenty years, Paying for It and Gutted will be on the top ten list of any crime list. But now comes Loss…Phew-oh…It’s like having yer ass kicked and yer heart shrived simultaneously. What a privilege to watch a master writer achieve everything you’d hoped for and then some.” —Ken Bruen “Tony Black delivers a story with a hard edge and fast-moving action. In this third book, he yet again produces a story that never lets up and delivers a superb book that you just can’t put down. I can’t wait for the next instalment of Gus Dury.” —EuroCrime “A brilliant, sweeping and heartbreaking novel, Black truly deserves your attention.” —International Thriller Writers “As washed-up private detectives go, Gus Dury is compelling—he’s as hard as any criminal and twice as self-destructive.” —Evening Standard “This is modern crime at its most brutal, its most affecting, its most honest and its most intelligent.” —Russel D McLean, author of Do Some Damage “Black writes about urban blight and the curse of alcohol like no other, but his down at heel tales are also full of everyday humour. Harrowing but indispensable.” —Maxim Jakubowski

Book Summary:

Like its author, Shattered is “fun, fast, and real” and an intriguing mix of paradoxes. Frank Pastore was a physically awkward kid who became a professional athlete. An okay student who goes on to earn two masters degrees in philosophy. A former atheist who ends up hosting the biggest Christian radio talk show in America. Shattered is part sports book, because you’ll go on road trips, enter clubhouses, and walk on the fields of professional baseball. It’s part romantic novel, because you’ll journey with two young kids who fall in love and eventually elope, evading not only her family, but the law as well—for she was only 16. It’s also a story of brokenness, betrayal, and burn-out. If you were raised in a dysfunctional family, if you’ve ever had your dreams fall apart, been betrayed by close friends, or hit the psychological “wall” in your professional career, this is your book too. But, most of all, this is an uplifting story of how an unpredictable God can surprise any of us with His goodness and love when we allow Him to make beautiful the shattered fragments of our lives.

Book Summary:

Stages of Loss supplies an original and deeply researched account of travel and festivity in early modern Europe, complicating, revising, and sometimes entirely rewriting received accounts of the emergence and development of professional theatre. It offers a history of English actors travelling and performing abroad in early modern Europe, and Germany in particular, during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. These players, known as English Comedians, were among the first professional actors to perform in central and northern European courts and cities. The vital contributions made by them to the development of a European theatre institution have long been neglected owing to the pre-eminence of national theatre histories and the difficulty of researching an inherently evanescent phenomenon across large distances. These contributions are here introduced in their proper contexts for the first time. Stages of Loss explores connections real and perceived between diminishments of national value and the material wealth transported by itinerant players; representations of loss, waste, and profligacy within the drama they performed; and the extent to which theatrical practice and the process of canonization have led to archival and interpretive losses in theatre history. Situating the English Comedians in a variety of economic, social, religious, and political contexts, it explores trends and continuities in the reception of their itinerant theatre, showing how their incorporation into modern theatre history has been shaped by derogatory assessments of travelling theatre and itinerant people in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Stages of Loss reveals that the Western theatre institution took shape partly as a means of accommodating, controlling, evaluating, and concealing the work of migrant strangers.

Book Summary:

The story takes place between the years 1926-1946 and is written in the language of the mountain people of that time and those with the beautiful Southern drawl from the Deep South that moved into the area. It is a return to the times that use to be, but will never be again. Two families, the Kidwells from Alabama and the Wilsons from Tennessee and Ohio move into a small town deep inside the Great Smokey Mountains called Hamilton, Tennessee, from different backgrounds and for different reason, but with only one motive, to make a new life for themselves. The children grow up sharing lifes experiences with each other and their newfound friends. Love, marriage, births, disappointments and death become a part of their lives. The loving parents struggle with the hardships of a deep depression that gripped the country at that time. With the onset of World War Two many changes come into their lives, some good, some bad, but they would survive because they already knew what hard times were like. The Kidwells from Alabama are loggers that come into the Cove to harvest much needed timber for their Company. The Wilsons move back to Tennessee from Ohio to get away from the harsh winters that cut into their earning power as carpenters. The Patriarch of the Wilson family must give up his work as a carpenter for health reasons, buys a small farm and returns to his younger days as a tobacco farmer.

Book Summary:

Three must find an heir to a dying king: Yldrath, a mythical figure with great powers; Podrg, a close friend of the king; Stelldan, a kitchen boy elevated by circumstances to his position. Their weapons: necklaces and swords with eternal stones, which can give them unlimited powers – if they understand how to use them. This action packed story revolves around the struggle between the peaceful way of Ehl’Ge’tild and the more energetic - and selfish - way of Ihl’S’told. Love mixes with lust, honour meets bitter betrayal, selfish greed competes with altruistic sacrifice. What is evil and good? Truth? Love? Things go awry, people die and new contenders appears. Yldrath changes as does his main enemy Bevelug, a woman. Does she want to kill Yldrath or marry him to establish a great new dynasty? Mix Narnia, The Lord of Rings and Harry Potter. Add illusions created in an Orwellian manner and a dash of The Alchemist and we get a Shakespearean mix of comedy, romance and tragedy – but with more action. Enjoy!

Book Summary:

Coping With Loss describes the many ways in which people cope with the death of someone they love. Most earlier books on bereavement have fallen into two categories: distillations of the clinical experience of individual therapists or collections of chapters reporting the results of empirical studies. Each category is valuable but has tended to serve a narrow group of readers--practitioners with particular theoretical orientations or researchers in quest of the latest findings. Coauthored by a leading research psychologist and an experienced therapist who specializes in bereavement education and intervention, this book is different. The authors weave together the strands of theory, research, and clinical wisdom into a seamless and readable narrative. While they discuss previous work, they also present new data, never before published, from one of the largest studies of bereaved people ever conducted, the Bereavement Coping Project. Unlike most studies to date, which focused on only one type of bereaved group (usually widows or widowers), the Bereavement Coping Project examined the experiences of several different groups during the first l8 months after the death. The groups included those who had lost a spouse, a parent, an adult sibling, or a child; and those who had lost their significant other to cancer or cardiovascular disease on one hand as opposed to the stigmatized disease of AIDS on the other. The book begins with a critical overview of theories of bereavement; succeeding chapters explore in depth the impact of specific types of loss, the impact of particular coping strategies on recovery; the impact of social supports and religion, and the special cases of children and of people who seem to grow and change for the better after a loss. A final chapter considers implications for intervention with bereaved people. Each chapter is richly illuminated with real-life examples throughout and ends with a section called "Voices" in which bereaved people describe their various attempts to cope in their own words. Insightful and informative.
