Whether mere bumps in the road or genuine crises, we live in a world of unwanted events that no willpower can prevent. In The Art of Disappearing, Ajahn Brahm helps us learn to abandon the headwind of false expectations and follow instead the Buddha's path of understanding. Releasing our attachment to past and future, to self and other, we can directly experience the natural state of serenity underlying all our thoughts and discover the bliss of the present moment. In that space, we learn what it is to disappear. Ajahn Brahm, an unparalleled guide to the bliss of meditation, makes the journey as fun as it is rewarding. The Art of Disappearing, comprised of a series of teachings Ajahn Brahm gave to the monks of Bodhinyana Monastery, where he serves as abbot, offers a unique glimpse into the mind of one of contemporary Buddhism's most engaging figures.

How do you know if love is real or just an illusion? When Mel Snow meets the talented magician Toby Warring in a dusty roadside bar, she is instantly drawn to the brilliant performer whose hands can effortlessly pull stray saltshakers and poker chips from thin air and conjure castles out of the desert sands. Just two days later they are married, beginning their life together in the shadow of Las Vegas, where Toby hopes to make it big. Mel knows that magicians are a dime a dozen, but Toby is different—his magic is real. As Toby's renown grows and Mel falls more and more in love with his wonderments, she starts to realize that Toby's powers are as unstable as they are dazzling. She learns that he once made his assistant disappear completely, and couldn't bring her back. And then, just as Mel becomes convinced that his magic is dangerous, a trick goes terribly awry during his Strip debut. Exiled from the stage, Mel and Toby flee the lights of Las Vegas for the streets of Amsterdam where a cabal of old-time magicians, real magicians like Toby, try to rescue him from his despair. But he's haunted by the trick that failed, and obsessed with using his powers to right his mistakes, leaving Mel to wonder if the love they share is genuine or merely a fantasy, conjured up by a lost magician looking to save himself from being alone. Ivy Pochoda's spellbinding and cinematic storytelling seamlessly fuses timeless magic to modern-day passion. Haunting and beautiful, The Art of Disappearing is an imaginative and captivating love story destined to enchant readers for years to come.

From its origins to its use in combat today, 'The Little Book of Camouflage' tells the history of camouflage in conflict. Its conception, its uses and the colours are looked at, as well as the key patterns such as the German uniforms of World War II, the ever-recognisable American type worn during Vietnam and the British DPM forming a sort of recognition guide to the various patterns in use in the armies of history and present day. Illustrated throughout with the patterns themselves and images of camouflage in use, Tim Newark presents a quick and detailed look at the most prolific camouflage patterns.

In Haiku, the Gentle Art of Disappearing, a renowned Irish poet shows us how haiku may be used as a powerful tool for spiritual interpenetration. This implies that we divest ourselves of the ever-chattering mind, shed the voracious ego and enjoy momentary glimpses of unity with natural phenomena. In the companion volume, Haiku Enlightenment, he further explores these thoroughly delightful experiences and invites us to disappear! Haiku is dynamically focussed on the present, from season to season, from day to day, from hour to hour, from second to second. But how illusory, how fleeting is that present moment? How caught up is it with the past, with the future? Can we stop its flow? Are there more ways than one of experiencing its essence? If we experience a moment intensely enough, might we disappear? Surprises await those readers who may have considered haiku to be nothing more than an innocuous three-line poem. A renowned poet shares his experience of haiku and its potential to surprise us again and again into a sudden awakening and thus to a deeper sense of what it is to be truly alive. His remarkably refreshing insights have delighted confreres around the world.

"The art of writing books of this kind is itself an art in danger of disappearing. Red blooded men and not introspective neurotics are used by the author to develop a plot which really develops. Good men and bad men, they do things; they are not merely sensation experimenters and sensation recorders." -New Catholic World "A remarkable story....The hero, Horace Endicott, a newly-married young man whose ten months so far spent with his wife 'were of a hue so roseate as to render discussion of the point foolish,' meets in the train Mgr. O'Donnell, the Vicar General of New York. Sprung from a New England stock of strong anti-Catholic bias, his prepossessions would have him dislike, or at least contemn, this professor of mummeries; but a sudden railway accident has the effect of making them fast friends. In the course of conversation the priest develops a theory that one who wishes to escape from his present surroundings, can always successfully defy discovery if only he will cut himself off thoroughly from the past, not leaving, as most criminals do, a single channel of communication with his former associates still open. Presently Horace Endicott is himself in a situation which makes him desire to try the plan. He has not indeed committed any crime, but he finds on his return home that his wife is far different from what he has supposed, and...can think of no other method of depriving her of a wife's share in his wealth, save by himself abandoning his home, his relations and his friends, and disappearing entirely from the knowledge of a wife who, though persisting in her guilt, instead of shrinking from his presence, tries every means of finding him. The curious things is that his new mode of life is cast in the city of New York, where he personates the lost and dead son of an Irish mother and, in spite of difference of temperament, of accent, of mental tone and culture, and in spite of an entirely different antecedent experience, is forthwith accepted among the Irish community of New York as Arthur Dillon. In this capacity he ventures at length to figure in public and political life, and to become a conspicuous character, and yet is not, at least for a considerable time, detected by the sharp eyes of his wife's emissaries. It is in describing Endicott's life as Arthur Dillon that the author finds his opportunity for portraying the feelings cherished by the American-Irish for this country. This is the part which, it is anticipated, will make the book deeply interesting to English readers." -The Month: An Illustrated Magazine of Literature, Science and Art "A story which possesses the merit of being original both in its main idea and in its description of a phase of life in New York City that is little known to those outside the Roman Catholic Church. We do not vouch for the ethics of the tale, but have found it an unusually interesting study and a relief from the rut." -The Critic "It has been wisely said that the man who hardens his heart because he has been imposed upon has no real belief in virtue, and with suitable circumstances he becomes the deceiver instead of the deceived. Such an one...stands at stage center in 'The Art of Disappearing." -Literary World "The publishers give six reasons why this novel should be read; one of them is that the author is a Roman Catholic priest, and another is 'that its treatment of such matters as the much talked-of Anglo-American alliance, the sentimental description of election issues in New York City, the mingled satire,' etc., etc., 'really make the book a novelist's novel.'" -The Bookman

Naomi Shihab Nye is a wandering poet - for over 30 years she has travelled America and the world to read and teach. Born in Missouri to a Palestinian father and an American mother, she grew up in St Louis, Jerusalem and San Antonio. Drawing on her Palestinian-American background, the cultural diversity of Texas, and her experiences in Asia, Europe, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America and the Middle East, her poetry 'reflects this textured heritage, which endowed her with an openness to the experiences of others and a sense of continuity across borders' (Bill Moyers). Through her empathetic use of poetic language, she reveals the shining nature of our daily lives, whether writing about local life in her inner-city Texan neighbourhood or the daily rituals of Jews and Palestinians in the war-torn Middle East. Probing the fragile connection between language and meaning, she shows how lives are marked by tragedy, inequity and misunderstanding, and that our best chance of surviving losses and shortcomings is to be acutely aware of the sacred in all things. 'In the current literary scene, one of the most heartening influences is the work of Naomi Shihab Nye. Her poems combine transcendent liveliness and sparkle along with warmth and human insight. She is a champion of the literature of encouragement and heart. Reading her work enhances life' - William Stafford 'Naomi Shihab Nye breathes poetry like the rest of us breathe air. When she exhales, the world becomes different. Better' - The Grand Rapids Press 'Tender yet forceful, funny and commonsensical, reflective and empathic, Nye writes radiant poems of nature and piercing poems of war, always touching base with homey details and radiant portraits of family and neighbours' - Donna Seaman, Booklist

Feather Harrington sits on an airplane with a pound of cocaine taped to her body. The Quiet Sound of Disappearing by Ryan Rayston is a tense, gritty, unorthodox, bizarrely funny, fictionalized story of one woman's descent into drugs and dealing, her arrest, and her daring struggle to find her way back. This engrossing account of the hedonistic drug culture of the early eighties provides humorous and searing testimony to the literal trials and tribulations of that time. She bottoms out in a pivotal moment that leads her to try-and fail-rehab. After getting sober on her own, Feather is arrested and indicted as a co-conspirator in a large DC drug scandal. Shockingly brave and honest, this gorgeously written, stream of consciousness novel gets at the gritty heart of what it is like to battle a disease and carry a shameful secret. The Quiet Sound of Disappearing is an emotional rollercoaster about love, loss, need, and managing to survive the unsurvivable.
