*NOMINATED FOR THE COSTA NOVEL AWARD* Family Album 'a hugely enjoyable read' from Booker Prize winner Penelope Lively 'This novel should delight her regular readers and ensnare new ones' Evening Standard Allersmead is a big shabby Victorian suburban house. The perfect place to grow up for elegant Sandra, difficult Gina, destructive Paul, considerate Katie, clever Roger and flighty Clare. But was it? Now adults, the children return to Allersmead one by one. To their home-making mother and aloof writer father, and a house that for years has played silent witness to a family's secrets. And one devastating secret of which no one speaks . . . 'One of those ridiculously simple, ridiculously readable novels whose artistry only becomes apparent when you put it down' Sunday Telegraph 'A pleasure to read, hugely enjoyable, consistently absorbing, hilarious' Independent Penelope Lively is the author of many prize-winning novels and short-story collections for both adults and children. She won the 1987 Booker Prize for her highly acclaimed novel Moon Tiger. She is a popular writer for children and has won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Award.

This book is an examination of the use of the family album in contemporary Spanish culture. Through the analysis of films, narratives, painting, and a photographic exhibition produced from the end of Franco's dictatorship to the present, Kim interrogates how the family album serves as a critical instrument to reflect on the treatment of the past in contemporary Spain, the recuperation of repressed identities, nostalgia for collective memory symptomatic of the cultural discontent with the erosion of a national boundary due to globalization and the increasing claim of diversity, and ethical concerns for immigration. This study explores a broad range of works by canonical as well as less studied writers and artists, including Juan Goytisolo, Carlos Saura, and Marta Balletbo-Coll. Yeon-Soo Kim is Assistant Professor of Spanish at Rutgers University.

A searing, emotional and inspiring memoir, The Family Album: Reminiscing About the Past tells the story of a resilient family living in Russia during some of the country’s darkest and most difficult history.

As Cynthia ruminates on her changing circumstances, life forces her to take a look at those she calls family. A former literary notable, Cynthia Wilkes is looking down the barrel of an empty nest, an empty desk, and an endless supply of empty pages when an unlikely protégé comes calling, setting in motion a chain of events that will force Cynthia, and those closest to her, to redefine the idea of family and of self. This novel is a humorous look at the creation and reconstruction of family and the lingering hold of the people we keep close and those we try to let go ... the siblings and step-siblings, parents and step-parents, spouses and exes, the friends, the colleagues, and the others we call family.

When a child is removed from a home and forced to live a life with strangers, it can be a traumatic experience accompanied by pain and shame that never goes away. This is the story of Ron Huber and his unforgettable journey through a childhood hell that eventually leads him out of the darkness into a successful adult life. Born in 1949 during the post-war era of national elation, Ron Huber's life is not joyful. When his alcoholic parents abandon him at age three, Ron is sent to two foreboding foster care ghettos where he is raised, over a span of fifteen years, by two female Victorian despots disguised as foster care mothers. After surviving beatings, scorn, emotional abuse, and back-breaking farm work, Ron finally manages to break free of the system and strikes out on his own in a cannibalistic world that nearly devours him. It is only through a miracle of emancipation and salvation that Ron emerges in adulthood as a Green Beret, book author, lecturer, government executive, and family man. In sharing his compelling personal journey, Ron Huber provides a heartbreaking glimpse into the perils that American children still encounter through abuse and a problematic foster care system.

We have specialists catering to every aspect of our life except the poison that we pump into our body as drugs; all specialists are in control of their destiny except pharmacists that are treated like children in their supposed area of jurisdiction; pharmacists are overeducated, underutilized and marginalized medical practitioners; drugs are chemicals and chemicals are poisons. The drugs we pump into our body at dawn can send us to our grave at dusk instead of ameliorating our condition. It is in light of these facts that this book was written to buttress the plight of pharmacists, pharmacy profession and the need to liberate the profession from slavery for the benefit of mankind. The book debits an accurate historical account of pharmacy, its slavery status, subservience, topsy-turvy fame, service to humanity and awesome contribution to the healthcare system of US/World. It also elaborates the history and shortcomings of other branches of medicine. Dean Grossman of LIU School of Pharmacy, Drug Topics survey of drug manufacturing company executives, research studies in the book, study upon study, and others vindicate clinical pharmacists as the most knowledgeable medical practitioners about drugs/medications in the medical field yet they have to obtain permission for drug usage from other branches of medicine that do not know as much about the profession as the practitioners. Something must be inherently wrong in a system that relegates or subjugates the best at the altar of tradition and societal indoctrination. These issues contained in the book were evident everywhere during my tour of the sic habitable continents of the world ( China and India in Asia, Nigeria in Africa, Australia, UK and France in Europe, Brazil in South America and US in North America). Pharmacy/pharmacist is a branch of medicine and not an errand boy of medicine.

The Farmer Family Album is a wedding of fiction and non-fiction that will bring you into the world of the Donkey Dan radio show that spanned four years of Sunday morning broadcasts. The Farmer family is a family of mixed cartoon animals who blend together science, fantasy, family, humor and a bit of religion. Even though the characters are fictional they are taken from our real family, friends, and pets. One of the most loved characters on the radio show was Tremor who appeared in nearly all of our stories. The Farmer Family album stories are based on some of the actual life moments of our family. The story about the donkey that believed God though mostly fictional has a very biblical ending to it. This can be found in the Old Testament book of Judges Chapter 15, verses 15, 16, and 17. In the Farmer Family album learn how the Donkey Dan show happened. Also check out if Tremor gets caught by Bonkers. Then find out about Gods creatures and how some of them do help us survive.
