Summaries of Book :

The Secret History meets Sharp Objects in this stunning debut about murder and glamour set in the ambiguous and claustrophobic world of an exclusive New England prep school. Death sets the plot in motion: the murder of Nica Baker, beautiful, wild, enigmatic, and only sixteen. The crime is solved, and quickly—a lonely classmate, unrequited love, a suicide note confession—but memory and instinct won’t allow Nica’s older sister, Grace, to accept the case as closed. Dropping out of college and living at home, working at the moneyed and progressive private high school in Hartford, Connecticut, from which she recently graduated, Grace becomes increasingly obsessed with identifying and punishing the real killer. Compulsively readable, Lili Anolik’s debut novel combines the verbal dexterity of Marisha Pessl’s Special Topic in Calamity Physics and the haunting atmospherics and hairpin plot twists of Megan Abbott’s Dare Me.

Book Excerpt:

This uniquely valuable book arose from the author's work with profoundly handicapped children in a special needs school. The sensory impairment of the children meant that they were unable to learn from traditional teaching methods as they were unaware of the world around them. Our very first awareness of our surroundings and ourselves come through our senses of smell, touch, taste, sight, hearing and movement, and without them we are isolated. To benefit from the normal school curriculum, children with sensory impairment must learn to develop each of their senses, individually and in combination - a process the non-handicapped child goes through spontaneously and unconsciously. This book outlines a curriculum for each of the senses in turn, using stimuli that can be varied to suit the age of the child or young person. Demonstrating how these can be combined to create a multisensory experience and how this newly developed awareness can be integrated into the rest of the school curriculum. This book was developed from the author's work with profoundly disabled children, their sensory impairment meant that traditional teaching was unsuccessful as they were unaware of the world around them. Flo Longhorn sets out a curriculum for developing each sense, both individually and in combination, using stimuli that can be varied according to the age of the child. This book shows how these techniques can be amalgamated to create multisensory experiences and how this new awareness can be integrated into the rest of the school curriculum.Designed for teachers, and parents, of children with profound multiple handicaps combined with sensory and physical impairment this has become a classic work.

Book Excerpt:

In The Dark Room, the experiences of three people are evoked with stunning emotional depth and psychological authenticity. A boy born with a physical deformity finds work as a photographer's assistant during the 1930s and captures on film the changing temper of Berlin, the city he loves. But his acute photographic eye never provides him with the power to understand the significance of what he sees through his camera. In the weeks following Germany's surrender, a teenage girl whose parents are both in Allied captivity takes her younger siblings on a terrifying, illegal journey through the four zones of occupation in search of her grandmother. Many years after the event, a young man trying to discover why the Russians imprisoned his grandfather for nine years after the war meets resistance at every turn; the only person who agrees, reluctantly, to help him has his own tainted past to contend with. With dazzling originality and to profound effect, Rachel Seiffert has recreated one of the darkest moments of the twentieth century.

  • Pdf File: this-brilliant-darkness.pdf

Book Excerpt:

A visionary work of radical empathy. Known for immersion journalism that is more immersed than most people are willing to go, and for a prose style that is somehow both fierce and soulful, Jeff Sharlet dives deep into the darkness around us and awaiting us. This work began when his father had a heart attack; two years later, Jeff, still in his forties, had a heart attack of his own. In the grip of writerly self-doubt, Jeff turned to images, taking snapshots and posting them on Instagram, writing short, true stories that bloomed into documentary. During those two years, he spent a lot of time on the road: meeting strangers working night shifts as he drove through the mountains to see his father; exploring the life and death of Charley Keunang, a once-aspiring actor shot by the police on LA’s Skid Row; documenting gay pride amidst the violent homophobia of Putin’s Russia; passing time with homeless teen addicts in Dublin; and accompanying a lonely woman drifting into dementia, whose only friend was a houseplant, on shopping trips. Early readers have called this book “incantatory,” the voice “prophetic,” in “James Agee’s tradition of looking at the reality of American lives.” Defined by insomnia and late-night driving and the companionship of other darkness-dwellers—night bakers and last-call drinkers, frightened people and frightening people, the homeless and the lost (or merely disoriented), other people on the margins—This Brilliant Darkness erases the boundaries between author, subject, and reader to ask: how do people live with suffering?

Book Excerpt:

Washed up on warm beaches around the world is a creature called the Bluebottle Jellyfish, or Man O' War, a small harmless looking mass of blue jelly with a rather painful stinging response to human touch and curiosity. Having been warned about the Bluebottle Jellyfish, I have stayed away from it. However, I have ignored the warnings about the stinging response to the human mind from the jelly mass of philosophers and how their philosophical ideas will befuddle your thinking. Eventually my curiosity overcame my reluctance to go near it, and now after considerable study, I have put together a succinctly canned overall historical look at philosophy and the lives of the great philosophers. It is written as an introduction to philosophy, as opposed to being hit upside the head with a plethora of complex books on comprehensive philosophical knowledge designed for a much longer period of study. Therefore this introduction to Philosophy is a fun quick intellectual look for those who have been stung with a mild curiosity for this subject, but neither has the time nor the inclination to get deeply involved in the many complicated avenues of the esoteric discipline of philosophy.

Book Excerpt:

This clinical handbook is a complete guide to the use of nitrous oxide when performing dental procedures in children. Nitrous oxide offers the easiest and safest form of pharmacological behavior management in this age group and can help greatly in reducing fear and anxiety toward dentists and dental treatment. Importantly, its use in children differs from that in adults, owing in part to the need for appropriate behavior management skills. In considering a range of clinical scenarios in which nitrous oxide is of value, this book will support clinicians in their daily practice. All aspects are covered, including rationale, basic science, mechanism of action, equipment, scavenging systems, technique, monitoring, safety, toxicity, documentation, and team building. Guidance is also provided on the use of nitrous oxide in special pediatric populations requiring oral health care. The book is supplemented by videos that will help readers to comprehend the text easily and to perform the technique efficiently and effectively.

WINNER OF SWEDEN’S BEST CRIME NOVEL AWARD On the idyllic island of Öland, off the coast of northern Sweden, a young couple from Stockholm tries to start life afresh. For Joakim and Katrine Westin, reclaiming a long-neglected family manor will be a labor of love, as they slowly bring the sprawling home back to life and introduce their two children to the island’s woodlands, glens, and beaches. But in the Westins’ new home, there are things that cannot be repaired, lives that have gone wrong, and secrets that have followed them. When the family is struck by tragedy, it’s up to grief-stricken Joakim to put together a puzzle of inexplicable loss, unbearable suspicion, and tangled lives. In this powerhouse of suspense–at once a crime novel and a searing family drama–a home built as a shelter from the sea becomes a human storm of murder.

  • Pdf File: civic-spaces-and-desire.pdf

Book Excerpt:

Civic Spaces and Desire presents an original and critical appraisal of civic spaces for a novel theoretical intersection of architecture and human geography. The authors address civic spaces that embody a strong moral code, such as a remembrance park or a casino, in various places in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. The consecutive chapters of the book present these chosen spaces as the interconnection between the everyday and the ideological. By doing so the book reimagines the socio-political effects of the countercultural assemblages and ontologies of difference that these spaces produce, represent and foster, as presented through outcasts and nomads of various kinds and forms. The book reflects on different interpretations of the key texts from primarily post-linguistic theoreticians, such as Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari and Jacques Derrida. It will benefit students and academics in architecture, geography, philosophy and urban studies and planning, who seek to understand the politics of space, place and civility. By deconstructing normative ideological constructs, the book uses the concept of desire to explore the tensions between expectations of civic spaces and the disappointment and wonder of their immanent existence.

On an island haunted by the ghost of a murdered girl, a young wife must unravel an eerie mystery to save her marriage in New York Times–bestselling author Jennifer Wilde’s spine-tingling novel of romantic suspense With its crashing waves, secret coves, and rumors of being haunted, Greycliff Island is a thrilling and magical place to lonely eleven-year-old Carolyn Dawson. It is here that she meets Grey Brandon, whose family owns the island’s cannery and who becomes her only friend. Thirteen years pass before he walks into her London bookshop. After a whirlwind courtship, Carolyn returns to her beloved island off the Cornish coast—as Grey’s bride. Not everyone likes the new mistress of Greycliff manor—not hostile, intimidating Burke, the servant who practically raised Grey; not Grey’s aunt; and not her insolent son, Evan, who think Carolyn is a fortune hunter. One day, in the gardens beyond the estate, Carolyn finds a tiny gravestone. That night, she’s awakened by a child’s screams. Years ago, a girl was murdered in one of the island’s caves. Is her ghost haunting Greycliff manor? When the household is rocked by murder, Carolyn must confront a flesh-and-blood killer—and a long-buried secret someone will kill to keep.

  • Pdf File: tongzhi-living.pdf

Book Excerpt:

Tongzhi, which translates into English as “same purpose” or “same will,” was once widely used to mean “comrade.” Since the 1990s, the word has been appropriated by the LGBT community in China and now refers to a broad range of people who do not espouse heteronormativity. Tongzhi Living, the first study of its kind, offers insights into the community of same-sex-attracted men in the metropolitan city of Dalian in northeast China. Based on ethnographic fieldwork by Tiantian Zheng, the book reveals an array of coping mechanisms developed by tongzhi men in response to rapid social, cultural, and political transformations in postsocialist China. According to Zheng, unlike gay men in the West over the past three decades, tongzhi men in China have adopted the prevailing moral ideal of heterosexuality and pursued membership in the dominant culture at the same time they have endeavored to establish a tongzhi culture. They are, therefore, caught in a constant tension of embracing and contesting normality as they try to create a new and legitimate space for themselves. Tongzhi men’s attempts to practice both conformity and rebellion paradoxically undercut the goals they aspire to reach, Zheng shows, perpetuating social prejudice against them and thwarting the activism they believe they are advocating.

Book Excerpt:

This book gets to the heart of what radiology is and what radiologists do. As a relatively young speciality, there is no guide for radiologists to act as a moral compass. Until now, that is. You will not find any dry technical matters in here. You will not find any clues about how to interpret images better. This book details the ‘other 50%’: the rest of the working week when a radiologist is not reading scans or performing procedures. The essence of radiology is distilled and offered up to the reader. If you want a comfortable read that offers bland reassurances, look elsewhere. If you want a book that questions everything and discusses uncomfortable truths, this is the book for you. Each of the Rules addresses an important part of professional practice. This book is a manifesto for all radiologists across the globe to raise their game, to be more effective and to serve their patients better.

Indigo Project psychologist Mary Hoang will teach you how to face your fears and anxieties and make meaning from loss and pain, to find your true purpose, meaning, and a life that resonates for you. Hidden in the folds of human life are the stories that most of us want to keep in the dark. The shit storms, our anxieties, the failed relationships, our sadness, our fears of the future, our psychological pain. Darkness is Golden is a commentary on the universal experience of ‘darkness’ that weighs on us all, and how those shadows can hold the answers we seek. It's an insightful guide on how to embrace the complexity of the mind when navigating emotions and relationships. Exploring themes of meaning, death, disconnection, vulnerability, forgiveness, identity and what it means to be human, Darkness is Golden is a gripping case for the strength that we all hold, the payoffs of going ‘within’ and the light that we hide in our shadows. Drawing on her years of psychological and therapeutic expertise, Mary Hoang will teach you how the tools of modern psychology, combined with age-old wisdom, provide you with the alchemy to turn darkness into gold; how to traverse, hopscotch, and shimmy with the web of your secrets, stories, and skeletons - to render purpose, meaning, and a life that resonates for you.

Book Excerpt:

After graduating from the Beijing Film Academy in 1982, directors like Chen Kaige and Zhang Yimou transformed Chinese cinema with Farewell My Concubine, Yellow Earth, Raise the Red Lantern, and other international successes. Memoirs from the Beijing Film Academy tells the riveting story of this class of 1982, China’s famous "Fifth Generation" of filmmakers. It is the first insider’s account of this renowned cohort to appear in English. Covering these directors’ formative experiences during China’s tumultuous Cultural Revolution and later at the Beijing Film Academy, Ni Zhen—who was both their screenwriter and teacher—provides unique insights into the origins of the Fifth Generation’s creativity. Drawing on his personal knowledge and interviews conducted especially for this volume, Ni Zhen demonstrates the diversity of the Fifth Generation. He comments on the breadth of styles and themes explored by its members and introduces a range of male and female directors, cinematographers, and production designers famous in China but less well-known internationally. The book contains vivid descriptions of the production processes of two pioneering films—One and Eight and Yellow Earth.

Book Excerpt:

Pre-order the latest chilling, unputdownable novel, from the Richard & Judy bestseller. A child who does not know her name... In 1903 fishermen find a wrecked boat containing a woman, who has been badly beaten, and a young girl. An ambulance is sent for, and the two survivors are taken to All Hallows, the imposing asylum, hidden deep on Dartmoor. The woman remains in a coma, but the little girl, Harriet, awakens and is taken to an attic room, far away from the noise of the asylum, and is put in the care of Nurse Emma Everdeen. Two motherless boys banished to boarding school... In 1993, All Hallows is now a boarding school. Following his mother’s death and his father’s hasty remarriage, Lewis Tyler is banished to Dartmoor, stripped of his fashionable clothes, shorn of his long hair, and left feeling more alone than ever. There he meets Isak, another lost soul, and whilst refurbishment of the dormitories is taking place, the boys are marooned up in the attic, in an old wing of the school. Cries and calls from the past that can no longer be ignored... All Hallows is a building full of memories, whispers, cries from the past. As Lewis and Isak learn more about the fate of Harriet, and Nurse Emma’s desperate fight to keep the little girl safe, it soon becomes clear there are ghosts who are still restless. Are they ghosts the boys hear at night in the room above, are they the unquiet souls from the asylum still caught between the walls? And can Lewis and Isak bring peace to All Hallows before the past breaks them first... Praise for Louise Douglas 'A brilliantly written, gripping, clever, compelling story, that I struggled to put down. The vivid descriptions, the evocative plot and the intrigue that Louise created, which had me constantly asking questions, made it a highly enjoyable, absolute treasure of a read.' Kim Nash on The Scarlet Dress 'A tender, heart-breaking, page-turning read' Rachel Hore on The House by the Sea 'The perfect combination of page-turning thriller and deeply emotional family story. Superb.’ Nicola Cornick on The House by the Sea ‘Kept me guessing until the last few pages and the explosive ending took my breath away.' C.L. Taylor, author of The Accident on Your Beautiful Lies ‘Beautifully written, chillingly atmospheric and utterly compelling, The Secret by the Lake is Louise Douglas at her brilliant best’ Tammy Cohen, author of The Broken ‘A master of her craft, Louise Douglas ratchets up the tension in this haunting and exquisitely written tale of buried secrets and past tragedy.’ Amanda Jennings, author of Sworn Secret ‘A clammy, atmospheric and suspenseful novel, it builds in tension all the way through to the startling final pages.’ Sunday Express, S Magazine

Book Excerpt:

This book examines the concept of darkness through a range of cultures, histories, practices and experiences. It engages with darkness beyond its binary positioning against light to advance a critical understanding of the ways in which darkness can be experienced, practised and conceptualised. Humans have fundamental relationships with light and dark that shape their regular social patterns and rhythms, enabling them to make sense of the world. This book ‘throws light’ on the neglect of these social patterns to emphasize how the diverse values, meanings and influences of darkness have been rarely considered. It also examines the history of our relationship with the dark and highlights how normative attitudes towards it have emerged, while also emphasising its cultural complexity by considering a contemporary range of alternative experiences and practices. Challenging notions of darkness as negative, as the antithesis of illumination and enlightenment, this book explores the rich potential of darkness to stimulate our senses and deepen our understandings of different spaces, cultural experiences and creative engagements. Offering a rich exploration of an emergent field of study across the social sciences and humanities, this book will be useful for academics and students of cultural and media studies, design, geography, history, sociology and theatre who seek to investigate the creative, cultural and social dimensions of darkness.

Book Excerpt:

In conclusion, the long-term goal for conducting bereavement is for the adolescent to develop skills and tasks that are necessary for entry into adulthood. Individuals will learn to understand the reality, to comprehend the inevitability, and to explore the mysteries of life and death. Indubitably, a more profound meaning and goal may emanate when one ponders the subject of death. In so doing, life and death become tangible concepts when the illusion of our earthly immortality is repudiated and when the irreversible inevitability of the death of others and ones self is challenged. The pricelessness of life becomes manifest and obvious when we courageously choose to conscientiously know ourselves as MidnightSunrise.
