Turning sixty isn’t the end; it’s only the beginning. Michael Cosgrove had a beautiful family, a successful career, and a lovely Southern California home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. At age sixty, he decided to leave all that behind to sail around the world. With the vision of rugged individualism and salty tales to share with his grandchildren, Cosgrove quickly realized that sailing around the world wasn’t as easy as he had imagined. From a psychotic crewmate, to sleep deprivation and mental breakdowns, to constant storms and hallucinations, Cosgrove rode the waves, trying to keep his idea of “doing something grand” alive. Alone, and thousands of miles away from everyone he loved, he was forced to ask himself one question: What in God’s name am I doing here? In his attempt to avoid the inevitable (growing old, weak, frail), Cosgrove runs amok. He breaks his budget to outfit the boat and then refuses to read the manuals. He enters unfamiliar harbors in the dead of night, hires a violent first mate, and sails headlong into ferocious storms. At the same time, he longs for the simpler days when his four daughters were still children, when his first marriage was still intact, and when his dreams were still within reach. Though driven by scenes of sheer terror, absurd folly, and deep inner searching, the tone is always buoyant and laugh-out-loud funny. Imperfect Passage is the story of one man’s perseverance against Father Time and Mother Nature, proving that with enough will, one can indeed conquer the unconquerable.

Satori: An imperfect passage through Japanese fashion, offers an inclusive overview of Japanese fashion design that crosses disciplinary boundaries and helps define the next phase of global fashion design. It chronicles a personal forty-year passage by Susan Barnwell, sadly deceased in January 2019. Sue experienced the fantasy of theatre and television costume production in England, worked as a fashion editor of a daily newspaper in Hong Kong, and taught at Universities in Asia and North America. She worked with museums on costume reconstruction and with hospital research teams designing clothing and accessories for breast cancer survivors with lymphedema. Her multifaceted approach to design and research included exploring cultural space with aging populations in Tokyo and empowerment for sex trade workers in Toronto. With some 50 colour illustrations, Satori presents a unique record of Japanese fashion design in a book that has been keenly anticipated by scholars, students and Asian fashion stylists. And it does so in a wide cultural context - moving from the political realities of Hiroshima to emerging design philosophies Kenzo Tange, Issey Miyake, Isamu Noguchi, Rei Kawakub
