Sophi Miller has loved fashionable shoes ever since she was a little girl playing in her mother’s closet. So it’s really no surprise to anyone when Sophi shows early promise of becoming a shoe designer. Success seems inevitable, her dreams well within reach, until tragic loss throws Sophi’s aspirations way off course. Sophi inevitably regains her “passion for fashion” in The City of Light where she finds herself changing her image...and her name. In grand Paris, Sophi finds the offerings of a new life and love when she meets a rough-hewn Frenchman whose free-flowing good looks leave her charmed from the moment he says bonjour. Sophi Arriver—her sexier, more sophisticated alter-ego—seems ready to take on the world. But first...she must decide whether or not to take a chance on love.

"I am not moving to Iraq to teach." How does a liberal American girl in red suede boots end up teaching English to conservative Muslim Iraqis in headscarves? Gretchen Berg has met the recession: she has eaten cereal for dinner, given up the gym membership, and come face to face with looming unemployment. To cope, she decided to uproot her life and move to the Middle East. She expected to make some good money, pay off some bad debt, and take some photos of camels. She did not expect to feel at home. She did not expect to fall for a student. She did not expect Diet Coke withdrawal. Irreverent, hilarious, and completely relevant, I Have Iraq in My Shoe takes a single, broke, fashion-conscious American female who prefers Project Runaway to CNN and tosses her into Iraq in exchange for cash and vacation time. Watch the desert sand fly!

After months of ogling him, she finally gains the confidence to befriend him. And when he, out-of-the-blue, asks what her ideal shoe would look like, she embarks on a quest to find it ... just for him. Low and behold, the stars align and Francie unexpectedly begins dating Berkeley. When he encourages her to accept an opportunity to study for a year in Italy, she ignores her gut instinct and agrees to it, reluctantly saying goodbye to both the love of her life and the only world she’s ever known. After growing accustomed to her newfound life, Francie decides to attend college in New York, where she continues to refine the characteristics of her ongoing shoe hunt. And though Berkeley has chosen to attend college on the opposite side of the continent, Francie remains forever hopeful that their relationship will one day resume. But when sudden tragedy strikes, Francie plunges into a tailspin and abandons all pursuits of happiness. As time passes, she begins to realize that her chase for the perfect shoe was about something far more meaningful than footwear. Now only one question remains: is it too late to claim the coveted prize? If Not 4 U and Some Shoes is a quirky coming-of-age tale expressed through the eyes of a shoe fanatic as she attempts to find herself—and true love.

When Tania McCartney discovered she’d be moving her husband, self and two kids under the age of five to China for four years, she was 95 per cent horrified. What she never expected was to fall in love. Beijing seeped under her skin and grabbed hold of her heart … a love affair that inspired 'Beijing Tai Tai', a collection of shrewdly observed, heartfelt and humorous insights into Beijing expatriate life. Intensely personal, at times a little controversial, 'Beijing Tai Tai' is a rollercoaster ride of honesty and openness as a wife (tai tai) and mother juggles suburban family life in urban Beijing. Presented in a series of love/hate column-like snippets — on topics ranging from the consumption of bull testicles to the life-altering experience of walking the Great Wall — it exposes expatriate life in a country on the brink of great change. From tragic hair moments and bustling silk markets to China’s quest to stay true to its ancient origins, 'Beijing Tai Tai' is a book for anyone interested in this diverse and culturally rich country. It’s for anyone, from anywhere, who knows what it’s like to fall in love, explore new worlds and live with challenges. It’s about life in a city full of soaring highs and disconsolate lows — but never anything less than remarkable.

An inventive novel, Make It, Take It sneaks the reader past the press conferences, locker rooms, and huddles of college basketball. Without judgment or sentimentality, Rus Bradburd lays bare the web of conflicts between players and coaches, blacks and whites, revealing the complex humanity of a team’s inner circle. Here, every choice has a very real cost. Steve Pytel is an assistant coach and top recruiter for a university basketball program. His goals are simple. He wants to keep his job and be a head coach someday. Keeping his wife barely makes the list. The team staggers; everyone’s days are numbered. Pytel was responsible for landing prized recruits Leonard Redmond and Jamal Davis. Pytel’s duties now? Keep Leonard out of jail. Make sure Jamal ignores the advice of his preacher, sidesteps his girlfriend’s pregnancy, and puts the ball in the basket. Good thing Pytel doesn’t carry around a bagful of scruples. Rus Bradburd is the author of the controversial Forty Minutes of Hell: The Extraordinary Life of Nolan Richard (HarperCollins/Amistad) and a memoir, Paddy on the Hardwood: A Journey in Irish Hoops (University of New Mexico Press). He spent fourteen years as a college basketball coach, working for legends Don Haskins and Lou Henson. A regular contributor to SLAM Magazine, his essays have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Houston Chronicle, and Chicago’s SouthtownStar. He is married to poet Connie Voisine. They live in New Mexico and Chicago, Illinois.

Howard Dean's campaign for president changed the way in which campaigns are run today. With an unlikely collection of highly talented and motivated staffers drawn from a variety of backgrounds, the Dean campaign transformed the way in which money was raised and supporters galvanized by using the Internet. Surprisingly, many of the campaign staff members were neither computer whizzes nor practiced political operatives, even though that is how some of them are identified today. This book allows key individuals in the campaign the chance to tell their stories with an eye to documenting the Internet campaign revolution and providing lessons to future campaigns. Howard Dean's inspirational statement of what it took for his campaign to get as far as it did-"mousepads, shoe leather, and hope"-holds great wisdom for anyone campaigning today, especially the 2008 presidential candidates.

If a woman has beautiful shoes, does she really need anything more from life? When interviewing Sarah Jessica Parker, Time magazine devoted the entire interview solely to questions of the sole. In step with a woman's soul-fulfilling need for shoes, Edward Monkton writes in The Shoes of Salvation: "For the first time in her life, the lady felt complete. And the lady knew what she had instinctively known all along. That sometimes, only glorious shoes can save you. * Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, pairs a fresh narrative style with simple yet elegant illustrations to create this modern-day fable.
