Fox and I Book Excerpt:

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "If there's one book you pick up this summer, make it this one." - Washington Post "A wise and intimate book about a solitary woman, a biologist by training, who befriends a fox." - Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi Catherine Raven has lived alone since the age of 15. After finishing her PhD in biology, she built herself a tiny cottage on an isolated plot of land in Montana, in a place as far away from other people as possible. She viewed the house as a way station, a temporary rest stop where she could gather her nerves and fill out applications for what she hoped would be a real job that would help her fit into society. Then one day she realises she has company: a mangy-looking fox who starts showing up at her house every afternoon at 4.15pm. She has never had a visitor before. How do you even talk to a fox? She brings out her camping chair, sits as close to him as she dares, and begins reading to him from The Little Prince. Her scientific training has taught her not to anthropomorphise animals, yet as she grows to know him, his personality reveals itself and the two form a powerful bond - shaken only when natural disaster threatens to destroy their woodland refuge. Fox and I is a story of survival and transformation, a captivating tale of a friendship between two species in a shared habitat, battling against the uncontainable forces of nature on one side and humanity on the other - immersive, original and utterly unforgettable.

I Do and I Don t Book Excerpt:

From one of our leading film historians and interpreters: a brilliantly researched, irresistibly witty, delightfully illustrated examination of “the marriage movie”; what it is (or isn’t) and what it has to tell us about the movies—and ourselves. As long as there have been feature movies there have been marriage movies, and yet Hollywood has always been cautious about how to label them—perhaps because, unlike any other genre of film, the marriage movie resonates directly with the experience of almost every adult coming to see it. Here is “happily ever after”—except when things aren't happy, and when “ever after” is abruptly terminated by divorce, tragedy . . . or even murder. With her large-hearted understanding of how movies—and audiences—work, Jeanine Basinger traces the many ways Hollywood has tussled with this tricky subject, explicating the relationships of countless marriages from Blondie and Dagwood to the heartrending couple in the Iranian A Separation, from Tracy and Hepburn to Laurel and Hardy (a marriage if ever there was one) to Coach and his wife in Friday Night Lights. A treasure trove of insight and sympathy, illustrated with scores of wonderfully telling movie stills, posters, and ads.

Marjorie Main Book Excerpt:

She was a slum mother, witty housekeeper, nosy neighbor, meddling maid, town gossip, and most memorably, Ma Kettle. Marjorie Main is best remembered for her portrayal of the farm mother of 15 children and wife of shiftless Pa Kettle. The characters were introduced in the 1945 film The Egg and I, and were such a hit that eight films followed. At an age when most actresses’ careers are waning, Main’s star was just beginning to rise. In real life, Main was as down to earth as characters she played. Her attire on the set and around her house were the same: a simple cotton house dress or jeans. She preferred riding the bus because she enjoyed interacting with regular people—the inspiration for her characters. This book chronicles Main’s childhood on an Indiana farm and the inspirations that led her to the stage. After a distinguished theater career and minor film roles, at age 50 she was offered a long-term contract with premier studio MGM. Details of her acting career and personal life covered here include her marriage to a scholarly widower 26 years her senior, and her work with actor Percy Kilbride, who was the antithesis of his character, the slothful Pa Kettle. A detailed filmography includes cast and credit lists and trivia about each of Main’s 85 films.

The sixties were the heyday of baby boomers from the last 'war to end all wars'. Unfortunately, they were just in time for another war--the Vietnam conflict that was even more senseless than the previous wars before it. Rebellion surfaced in flower children, long haired "hippies," psychedelic posters, and a new type of music...the Beatles were the royal leaders, setting the pace for the dynamic '60's.

Neil and I Book Excerpt:

Neil and Wolfie meet each other in the convent school. The mere fact that they are the only two boys in a class of girls means that they share an immediate bond. This relationship is tested numerous times, yet it seems to survive even the dramatic events of death, new schools, foster parents and the influence of peers. Neil and I: Boys from the Convent is a story of a simple friendship lasting against all the odds. Basic friendliness is a vital skill that needs to be developed in all people. We should radiate love and embrace al, notes the author. The story begins in a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa in the 1960s. Wolfie was sent to the convent school to learn English, while Neil was enrolled because his mother is on her deathbed. The two boys begin a bond that lasts a lifetime in this beautifully told narrative of boyhood dreams and spiritual journeys. About the Author: Raised in Cape Town, Wolfgang Ratz is currently a deputy headmaster at a girls' school in Paarl, South Africa. I have made it my calling to push the idea of friendship.In my teaching, I focus on this theme and teach my message that even if we differ there is no need not to show friendship, tolerance and understanding.

The Egg Is Still in There Book Excerpt:

Life has been a challenge for Keisha to find the truth of God with false teachings and lack of true discipleship around her. The Holy Spirit divinely intervenes with choosing one of two roads, destruction or God. This choice brought many storms and trials that were authored by God Almighty to break her and her family down to remold them into His image. The cost was high but well worth it. Forgiveness for herself was necessary, and as the convicting came, God also healed through a comparison of the family according to God's word with baking. Knowledge and truth is powerful. The science of baking a cake with ingredients eggs and flour match God's purpose for the family. Satan deceives women into thinking their purpose and touch on the family isn't seen, but the egg is still in there even though you can't always see it! We were all born with a purpose!
