Twelve Minutes of Love Book Excerpt:

Kapka Kassabova first set foot in a tango studio ten years ago and, from that moment, she was hooked. With the beat of tango driving her on and the music filling her head, she's danced across the world, from Auckland to Edinburgh, from Berlin to Buenos Aires, putting in hours of practice for fleeting moments of dance-floor ecstasy, suffering blisters and heart-break along the way. Here, in sparkling, spring-heeled prose, Kapka takes us inside the esoteric world of tango to tell the story of the dance, from its Afro roots to its sequined stars and back. Twelve Minutes of Love is a timeless tale of exile and longing, death and desire, love and belonging.

Politics and Pasta Book Excerpt:

The story behind the podcast Crimetown, as told by the notorious Buddy Cianci himself. An election is a war and "to the victor belongs the spoils." That’s the real democratic process. After all, you'll never see a victorious politician tell his supporters, "I want to thank all of you who worked so hard for my election. However, in the interest of good government, I've decided to give all the jobs to those people who voted against me." This belief became Buddy Cianci’s mantra. Following his own rules, Cianci spent almost three decades as mayor of Providence, RI... before leaving for an enforced vacation in a federally funded gated community. Providence was a dying industrial city when he first took office, but he helped turn it into one of the most desirable places to live in America. He did it by playing the game of hardball politics as well as it has ever been played, living up to his favorite Sinatra lyric "I did it my way"—because that's the only way a mayor can run a city. If you want to know the truth about how politics is played, you picked the right book. This is the behind-the-locked-door story of how politics in America really works. Here is a man who has been called many things: "America's Most Innovative Mayor," a "colorful character," and a convicted felon. But no one has ever called him shy. Here, he serves it all up.

Finding My Groove Book Excerpt:

“Lyrics have been the poetry of my life.” A former disc jockey who has “lived, worked, and played in every corner” of Vancouver Island, recounts in this absorbing memoir the livelihoods, lessons, and loves of several generations of working people in the resource-based industries of British Columbia, with in-depth and interesting descriptions of how jobs were and are performed and how communities come together and splinter. The author provides equally detailed accounts of his subsequent careers in broadcasting and business in Toronto, Vancouver, the Okanagan, and back on the Big Island. This book resounds with themes of music. It’s about learning and growing through life experiences; taking chances and pursuing your dreams; family values and responsibility; respect and tolerance for others; finding out it’s okay to fail; and redemption and forgiveness. With “album cuts” to introduce and highlight each chapter, Finding My Groove is a study in cultural differences between different industry sectors and ways of life, as well as different regions of Canada. This book brings to light themes that are common despite these differences—danger, tragedy, life and death, triumphs and disappointments, mental and physical health, lessons learned, lost dreams, love, and renewed commitment. It provides firsthand knowledge of logging, of broadcasting, of the comparison of big-city life to small-town experiences. It is a guide to finding satisfaction and contentment in life, and coming to peace with yourself.
