Description : Big beautiful―and in some cases mature―heroines grace the pages of this collection of romantic short stories by Judy Bagshaw. Among the offerings: Jen believes fat girls like her don't find love—but at her best friend's wedding her beliefs are put to the test. Middle-aged widow Tricia thought she had to be content living solo. Then she met Harry. Bev ran away with the "bad boy" as a teenager, only to find out that fantasy and reality are vastly different. Twenty years later, can she recapture the love she threw away? Lori has long fantasized about meeting sexy-voiced Dan, one of her clients at the answering service. Will she break the rules and find true love? Karen has kissed a lot of frogs, but not yet met her prince. A chance encounter might change her life―if she's willing to throw caution to the wind. "These are heroines you'll recognize because they are real women like you and me," Bagshaw says. "They have busy lives and character flaws. They make mistakes and have regrets. They long for long and have suffered hurts. But they persevere. And in the stories in this collection they find the love they've been looking for, sometimes where they least expect it."

Description : In the early twentieth century, a group of writers banded together in Moscow to create purely original modes of expression. These avant-garde artists, known as the Futurists, distinguished themselves by mastering the art of the scandal and making shocking denunciations of beloved icons. With publications such as "A Slap in the Face of Public Taste," they suggested that Aleksandr Pushkin, the founder of Russian literature, be tossed off the side of their "steamship of modernity." Through systematic and detailed readings of Futurist texts, James Rann offers the first book-length study of the tensions between the outspoken literary group and the great national poet. He observes how those in the movement engaged with and invented a new Pushkin, who by turns became a founding father to rebel against, a source of inspiration to draw from, a prophet foreseeing the future, and a monument to revive. Rann's analysis contributes to the understanding of both the Futurists and Pushkin's complex legacy. The Unlikely Futurist will appeal broadly to scholars of Slavic studies, especially those interested in literature and modernism.

Description :  In a prolific career spanning six decades, actor Burt Reynolds was one of the world's most famous stars of film and television. As much a folk hero as a Hollywood celebrity, he began as a stuntman and bit player in B Westerns and TV shows before landing a starring role on NBC's Riverboat (1959-1961). His breakthrough role in Deliverance (1972) made him famous and the sleeper hit Smokey and the Bandit (1977) made his name a household word. This first critical overview of Reynolds' work examines his complete filmography, featuring candid discussions with costars and collaborators, exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and a wealth of film stills.

Description : Inspiration for The Deck of Life emerged from the author’s clinical observations of patients in his practice of dermatology and internal medicine. He became increasingly aware of the connection between the genetic code as it relates to body build, temperament, and disease predisposition. It was further observed that these factors were influenced by the patient’s “belief system” as it relates to personal characteristics, behavior, and reactions to life’s situations. This book explores this unique relationship and our inherent ability to alter these features. It confirms the truth that there is a choice and an unlimited capacity to live a stress free life, with peace, happiness, and longevity. The reader is guided to discover their dominant and sub-dominant temperament. A better understanding of ourselves enables us to “play a winning hand” with the cards we are dealt in life. Consequently, we make decisions more wisely in the areas of health, career choice, choosing a mate, child rearing, and the day-to-day communications and enjoyment of the people in our lives.

Description : This is the most recent in Meryl Taylor’s long series of literary offerings since 1987 when she first published Earthbound as a tribute to Elizabeth Steinberg, a murdered child from New York City. Proceeds went to the World Hunger Coalition. Since then, SCRAPS, 1988, with New Horizons, in Chula Vista, donated funds to Humane Society; Brown Mare, with Avant Garde, in Missouri, gifted WWF; Big Trouble on Hog’s Back helped Wounded Warriors; and her other works with Xibris aided animal charities across the world. She was widely published in magazines under pen names in the late ’70s and won contests with her teachers’ help. Writing has been her passion and solace. Now with her love, Charles, at her side, she reaches out to those who hurt, need to heal, survive, move on, and grow past life that no longer work. Living in Dayton, Ohio, she writes for adults and children who need to laugh at lives that may not always seem funny. With a freshly minted PhD, she soars into the stratosphere to entertain and enlighten. A mother and grandmother, she sees life as a challenge, a tunnel where that light is no roaring train but an opportunity. To aspiring authors, write on, publish, or perish!

Description : Eric Coates (1886-1957) is perhaps the most familiar name associated with British light music. Sir Charles Groves said that 'his music crackled with enthusiasm and vitality. He could write tunes and clothe them in the most attractive musical colours'. Coates won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, and from 1912 to 1919 he was principal viola of the Queen's Hall Orchestra under Sir Henry Wood. He also played under such conductors as Elgar, Delius, Richard Strauss, Debussy, and Beecham. It was, however, as a composer of orchestral music that he found his greatest success. Beginning with the Miniature Suite, written for the 1911 Promenade Concerts, he forged an enviable reputation as a composer. By the 1920s and 1930s, he was one of the most popular and highest-paid British composers, with a string of popular works flowing from his pen. Coates' music has become indelibly entwined with such popular radio programmes as the BBC's In Town Tonight, which was introduced by the 'Knightsbridge' March and Desert Island Discs whose signature tune for the past forty years has been By the Sleepy Lagoon. Perhaps his most memorable work was his march for the Dam Busters film. Michael Payne traces the changing fortunes of the career of the man who composed some of Britain's best-known music. In many ways, Coates' story is the story of British light music, and Payne's study offers a fascinating insight into the heyday and decline of the British light music tradition.

Description : In 1971, Newsweek heralded The Last Picture Show as the "the most impressive work by a young American director since Citizen Kane." Indeed, few filmmakers rivaled Peter Bogdanovich's popularity over the next decade. Riding the success of What's Up, Doc? (1972) and Paper Moon (1973), Bogdanovich became a bona fide celebrity, making regular appearances in his own movie trailers, occasionally hosting late-night television shows, and publicly advocating for mentors John Ford and Howard Hawks. No director of his era surpassed his ability to capture an audience's imagination. In Picturing Peter Bogdanovich: My Conversations with the New Hollywood Director, journalist and critic Peter Tonguette offers a film-by-film analysis of the director's life and work. Beginning with a string of 1970s classics, Tonguette explores well-known films such as Saint Jack (1979), They All Laughed (1981), and Noises Off (1992), as well as the director's work on stage and television. Drawing on interviews conducted over sixteen years, Tonguette pairs his analysis with an extensive, previously unpublished series of Q&As with Bogdanovich. These exclusive interviews reveal behind-the-scenes details about the director's life, work, and future plans. Part memoir, part critical biography, this book offers a uniquely intimate portrait of one of Hollywood's most underappreciated directors.
