As I have recalled my life in order to create this memoir, I've wondered what physical traits and abilities will be passed down to future generations of this family. I've also wondered if my love of the visual arts is a family inheritance I've received through some unknown ancestor in the distant past. We're all part of something larger than our individual lives--although there are clearly more questions than answers as far as that is concerned.

Thousands of people each year leave behind their family, friends, and jobs to depart their home country in search of a more fulfilling life. Have you honestly ever wondered, what it would be like to do just that? E. L. Baird and her husband were unhappy living in the United Kingdom and decided to change their future for the better. As they prepared for their eventual emigration to Canada, they spent hours reading, researching, calling, and e-mailing in order to organize their journey. Baird shares both the positive and negative experiences they encountered while dealing with red tape, finding work, and learning school rules. She also includes entertaining anecdotes about camping in grizzly bear country in Canada and their first Christmas in New Zealand, where they all sat miserably hot around the dinner table, stripped down to their underwear with the electric fan on full speed. Experience the intriguing world of emigration from the comfort of your home and share their journey. A Life Like Mine provides an honest portrayal of the heartfelt and lengthy journey a family of five is willing to take to find true happiness.

‘Superb... up-ends received wisdom about disability... Humbling, dark, bright, defiant, generous... revolutionary’ David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas A profoundly beautiful memoir about disability, difference, and living as a vulnerable body Jan Grue had just become a father when he inherited a stack of his childhood medical records. Following a diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy at the age of three, the raft of doctors’ notes, clinical descriptions and case histories defined his body as defective and his future as bleak and limited. They conjured a childhood nothing like the one he remembered, that failed to anticipate the life he lived now. I Live a Life Like Yours is Grue’s beautiful, groundbreaking search for a literary language that could better tell his story. Writing with clear-eyed wisdom and bracing frankness, Grue folds insights from art, film and literature into an expansive account of who he was expected to be, and who he became. If it is a story of frustration with negligent institutions and the pain of stigma, it is also a story of the potential of acceptance and the gift of family. Unflinching, yet always compassionate, I Live a Life Like Yours is a fierce and tender reckoning with what it means to live as a vulnerable body.

The Oxford Handbooks series is a major new initiative in academic publishing. Each volume offers an authoritative and up-to-date survey of original research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned essays from leading figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences. The Oxford Handbook of Practical Ethics is a lively and authoritative guide to current thought about ethical issues in all areas of human activity—personal, medical, sexual, social, political, judicial, and international, from the natural world to the world of business. Twenty-eight topics are covered in specially written surveys by leading figures in their fields: each gives an authoritative map of the ethical terrain, explaining how the debate has developed in recent years, engaging critically with the most notable work in the area, and pointing directions for future work. The Handbook will be essential reading, and a fascinating resource of ideas and information, for academics and students across a wide range of disciplines.

Rose Petals Rose petals envy your silky soft lips, They taste just like wine, Though far sweeter to kiss. And all the worlds lilies Would long for your skin, Yet not one flower created Could match your beauty within
