“A fiercely eloquent testament to making the most out of every moment we’re given.” —People Magazine, Book of the Week In 2008, Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was given four years to live. In 2010, in a state of lung-function collapse, Simon knew with crystal clarity he was not ready to die. Against all prevailing medical opinion, he chose life. Despite the loss of almost all motor function, thanks to miraculous technology, he continued to work, raise his five children, and write this astonishing memoir. It’s Not Yet Dark is a journey into a life that, though brutally compromised, was lived more fully than most, revealing the potent power of love, of art, and of the human spirit. Written using an eye-gaze computer, this is an unforgettable book about relationships and family, about what connects and separates us as people, and, ultimately, about what it means to be alive.

The labyrinthine, ingenious plot of Bleak House focuses on the seemingly endless lawsuit Jarndyce and Jarndyce, an inheritance dispute that has been moving through the courts for years. Dozens of characters, including the innocent young narrator Esther Summerson, her friends Richard Carstone and Ada Clare, and the jaded aristocrats Sir Leicester and Lady Honoria Dedlock, are directly or indirectly caught up in the case. Written in bold and inventive language, Bleak House is Dickens’s epic vision of Victorian society. The critical introduction and extensive appendices to this edition focus on the novel’s social context and reception, Dickens’s treatment of his women characters and the working class, and the inequalities of the Victorian legal system.

William Chambers (May 26, 1865 - December 16, 1933) was an American artist and writer. According to some estimates, Chambers was one of the most successful literary careers of his period, his later novels selling well and a handful achieving best-seller status. Many of his works were also serialized in magazines. About "The Red Republic," the New York Press wrote: "With all its rush and excitement there is a solid basis of painstaking and thoughtfulness in 'The Red Republic.' Mr. Chambers is wholly free from self-consciousness; indeed his gifts seem to be little short of genius. Wonderfully vivid and graphic." The New York Times wrote: "Mr. Chambers shows great familiarity with the many dreadful days of 1871m and Mr. Thiers's policy is critically examined. 'The Red Republic' abounds with action."

St John of the Cross was a 16th century Spanish mystic who wanted to reform Catholicism and encourage the integration of meditative practices by its followers. Because of this, he was locked up by other monks and during his imprisonment he wrote one of the world's most famous spiritual poems Dark Night of the Soul. After his escape, he then wrote a commentary to the poem to explain how to deal with any period when one feels completely cut off from God, and totally uninspired by anything. This is the first time the poem and its commentary have been translated by anyone outside the Catholic Church, and the language is exceptionally contemporary and relevant to our everyday concerns, no matter whether the reader is a Catholic, Buddhist or Muslim - or just having a hard time.

Sweetie Baby Sweetie Baby features material from 2000 and thereafter, primarily from year 2000 to mid-2003 and then onward through 2004, etc. (as dated). This material includes informal essays, journal type entry letters and poetry describing the years this writer was terrorized by a primarily covert stalker. Additional tips and resource information has been collected and included herein. Stalking victims and support sources for victims are encouraged to seek education, tips and information from more than one venue. Additionally, victims and those who are within those victims’ lives are cautioned that stalking is a long-term act of domestic terrorism, an unrecognized war-zone, in which a typically untrained, unprepared victim is drafted by force into being a sort of Special Forces soldier. A Stalker ́s terrorism and attack patterns are frequently highly obsessive, repetitive and bizarre. This book explains a lot of the why and how the average covert stalkers mind functions. In addition, Sweetie-Baby reveals all the details never exposed in this books written predecessors, The Visage and House of Sorrows. The ideal series of reading material includes three out of the four books in this series: 1) The Visage or House or Sorrows. Most readers prefer The Visage. 2) Sweetie Baby. 3) Black Market. In review of all three books what was once in a sense truly a cover-up, that which persisted for nearly a decade, is clearly shattered. Readers could be well advised to view a lot of Sweetie-Baby as almost a "Dear Diary," collection of material writter by a stalking victim while she was stalked. The material has not been altered to change that first hand real time impression of when and where it was written. The authenticity of time and place is intact. The Sereena Nightshade that drifts out of the end of this obscured tunnel of stealth is the same innocent drafted warrior who should have never been a soldier at all; however, the layers of what she tried to maneuver and protect are mind blowing. Names of individuals in all of this author´s books are fictitious names. Real names are not revealed. Review by Dominic. Sereena Nightshade Trivia: 1) Favorite musician: Sixto Rodriguez. A) Album sample, Cold Fact.

Semiautobiographical and universal in appeal, Street of Riches is about a young girl's growing up in a suburb of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Here is Christine, the perceptive narrator of The Road Past Altamont (also a Bison Book), awakening to natural and sometimes terrifying beauty, to family history, to the nuances of social life, to sexuality, to selfhood. A mother's romantic yearning for freedom, a father's roving career as an immigration officer, a beautiful sister's early demise, a host of others in very human situations - all contribute to the way Christine will view the world as a writer. Gabrielle Roy has been called the Canadian Willa Cather because of their affinity in style and theme. Street of Riches won both the Governor-General's Award for Fiction and the French Prix Duvernay.

“In her ambitious third novel, Wicomb explores South Africa’s history through a woman’s attempt to answer questions surrounding her past” (The New Yorker). Set in a beautifully rendered 1990s Cape Town, Windham Campbell Prize winner Zoë Wicomb’s celebrated novel revolves around Marion Campbell, who runs a travel agency but hates traveling, and who, in post-apartheid society, must negotiate the complexities of a knotty relationship with Brenda, her first black employee. As Alison McCulloch noted in the New York Times, “Wicomb deftly explores the ghastly soup of racism in all its unglory—denial, tradition, habit, stupidity, fear—and manages to do so without moralizing or becoming formulaic.” Caught in the narrow world of private interests and self-advancement, Marion eschews national politics until the Truth and Reconciliation Commission throws up information that brings into question not only her family’s past but her identity and her rightful place in contemporary South African society. “Stylistically nuanced and psychologically astute,” Playing in the Light is as powerful in its depiction of Marion’s personal journey as it is in its depiction of South Africa’s bizarre, brutal history (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). “Post-apartheid South Africa is indeed a new world . . . With this novel, Wicomb proves a keen guide.” —The New York Times “Delectable . . . Wicomb’s prose is as delightful and satisfying in its culmination as watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.” —The Christian Science Monitor “[A] thoughtful, poetic novel.” —The Times (London)
