Claire Doheney, recovering from a serious illness, agrees to house-sit in an oceanfront mansion on Chappaquiddick island in Martha's Vineyard. The New York book editor hopes to find solace, strength, and sufficient calm to finish her biography of the iconoclastic psychotherapist, Wilhelm Reich. The last thing she expects to find is love. Then she meets a mysterious man the locals call the Hermit. No one knows his real name or where he lives. To their mutual surprise, Claire and the stranger discover that they share a passion for cooking that soon sparks something more. But Claire's new friend has a terrible secret that threatens to drive them apart forever. The clock is ticking. Can Claire let love into her life once more before it's too late? Told by a New York Times bestselling author and international TV host with a keen eye for Chappaquiddick's extraordinary natural beauty, Island Apart has it all—romance, history, travel, crime, lovemaking of exquisite intensity, and cooking scenes so vivid, they'll make your taste buds ache with hunger.

Author Ken McAlpine stands in his front yard one night in Ventura, California, trying to see the stars. His view is diminished by light pollution, making it hard to see much of anything in the sky. Our fast-paced, technologically advanced society, he concludes, is not conducive to stargazing or soul-searching. Taking a page from Thoreau's Walden, he decides to get away from the clamor of everyday life, journeying alone through California's Channel Islands National Park. There, he imagines, he might be able to "breathe slowly and think clearly, to examine how we live and what we live for." In between his week-long solo trips through these pristine islands, McAlpine reaches out to try to better understand his fellow man: he eats lunch with the homeless in Beverly Hills, sits in the desert with a 98-year-old Benedictine monk, and befriends a sidewalk celebrity impersonator in Hollywood. What he discovers about himself and the world we live in will inspire anyone who wishes they had the time to slow down and notice the wonders of nature and humanity.

From internationalist and nonpartisan progressive, author of "Same Ole or Something New" and "BREAKDOWN," comes another thought-provoking work NO LAND AN ISLAND NO PEOPLE APART challenging readers to face the "callously immoral, lawless, relentlessly regressive model in U.S. foreign relations"; and embrace an authentic progressivism. "This book is unconcerned with political fi gures per se (or their parties)," Bennett says, "but rather with a malignant system maintained by a parade of tentacled regimes whose offi cial (elected) base of operation begins in the capital of the United States, a system that is seemingly endorsed by the people of the United States." The author maintains that the United States has created and entrenched a narrow worldview, espousing an attitude that all land and peoples belong to America to use and abuse, to pillage and plunder. In this work, Dr. Carolyn LaDelle Bennett takes a second look at U.S. relations with Afghanistan and Pakistan, Iran and Iraq, Bahrain and Yemen, Libya and Somalia; and sees a continuing BREAKDOWN that worsens in act and consequence. She then presents her own ideas and worldview; and a challenge to embrace a nonviolent, transformative, inclusive progressivism imbued with a sense of global society, a sensibility that inspires constructive, continuous forward movement. Bold and daring, NO LAND AN ISLAND NO PEOPLE APART is an educator's guide, a philosopher's critique, a news writer's eye, an internationalist's sensibility chronicling U.S. foreign relations violence and the human costs East Africa crossing the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden into Persia, the Middle East, South Central Asia.

Author: Jean-Christophe Agnew

Drawing on a variety of disciplines and documents, Professor Agnew illuminates one of the most fascinating chapters in the formations of Anglo-American market culture. Worlds Apart traces the history of our concepts of the marketplace and the theatre and the ways in which these concepts are bound together. Focusing on Britain and America in the years 1550 to 1750, the book discusses the forms and conventions that structured both commerce and theatre. As marketing practice broke free of its traditional boundaries and restraints, it challenged longstanding popular assumptions about the constituents of value, the nature of identity, the signs of authenticity, and the limits of liability. New exchange relations bred new legal and commercial fictions to authorise them, but they also bred new doubts about the precise grounds upon which the self and its 'interests' were to be represented. Those same doubts, Professor Agnew shows, animated the theatre as well. As actors and playwrights shifted from ecclesiastical and civic drama to professional entertainments, they too devised authenticating fictions, fictions that effectively replicated the bewildering representational confusions of the new 'placeless market'.

From the author of Color Me Butterfly, a poignant novel about a decades-long love affair and the complicated and unbreakable ties between two families that live worlds apart. Morris Sullivan joins the navy in 1940 with a love of ships and high hopes. Though he leaves behind his new wife, Agnes, and their baby daughter, he is thrilled to be pursuing his lifelong dream—but things change when he is shipped off to Pearl Harbor when the war begins. When he narrowly survives the 1941 attack thanks to the courage of a black sailor he doesn't know, Morris is determined to seek out the man's family and express his gratitude and respect. On leave, he tracks down the man's sister in his own hometown of Boston—and finds an immediate and undeniable connection with the nurturing yet fiercely independent Beatrice, who has left the stifling South of her upbringing for the more liberal, integrated north. Though both try to deny their growing bond, their connection and understanding is everything missing from Morris's hasty marriage to his high school sweetheart and from Beatrice's plodding life as she grieves the brother she has lost. At once a family epic and a historical drama that brings the streets and neighborhoods of Boston vividly to life from World War II through the civil rights era to the present day, A Life Apart takes readers along for the emotional journey as Morris and Beatrice's relationship is tested by time, family loyalties, unending guilt, racial tensions, death, and the profound effects of war.

No one was saying anything. No one was telling the two princes or any of the palace staff anything, and they were getting worried. It was around eleven PM when there was the sound of commotion coming from the room, then silence, then the anguished scream of a man whose heart had been torn out. Itzel immediately threw up. Something had gone awfully wrong, and most of the people who had heard could guess, but no one dared to vocalize it. A few minutes later, one of the doctors came out to tell them that Zora had given birth to twins, a boy and a girl, but she had died in the process. In less than a year, Kimora had lost two queens. Worlds Apart is a story about a king who gives up his throne when he gets heartbroken, a princess and a prince who never knew they were, twins who meet and do not realise they are related, and a best friend who helps to bring a broken family together.
