The Dog of the Marriage By Amy Hempel
Amy Hempel's compassion, intensity, and illuminating observations have made her one of the most distinctive and admired modern writers. In three stunning books of stories, she has established a voice as unique and recognizable as the photographs of Cindy Sherman or the brushstrokes of Robert Motherwell. The Dog of the Marriage, Hempel's fourth collection, is about sexual obsession, relationships gone awry, and the unsatisfiEd longings of everyday life.In "Offertory," a modern-day Scheherazade entertains and manipulates her lover with stories of her sexual encounters with a married couple as a very young woman. In "Reference # 388475848-5," a letter contesting a parking ticket becomes a beautiful and unnerving statement of faith. In "Jesus Is Waiting," a woman driving to New York sends a series of cryptically honest postcards to an old lover. And the title story is a heartbreaking tale about the objects and anim…

Star Trek: Mirror Universe: The Sorrows of Empire By David Mack
One man can shape the future...but at what cost? "In every revolution, there is one man with a vision." Captain James T. Kirk of the United Federation of Planets spoke those prophetic words to Commander Spock of the Terran Empire, hoping to inspire change. He could not have imagined the impact his counsel would have. Armed with a secret weapoN of terrifying power and a vision of the alternate universe's noble Federation, Spock seizes control of the Terran Empire and commits it to the greatest gamble in its history: democratic reform. Rivals within the empire try to stop him; enemies outside unite to destroy it. Only a few people suspect the shocking truth: Spock is knowingly arranging his empire's downfall. But why? Have the burdens of imperial rule driven him mad? Or is this the coldly logical scheme of a man who realizes that freedom must always be paid for in blood? Spock alone knows that the fall…

The Responsibility Trap By Claudia Bepko

The Responsibility Trap By Claudia Bepko
Bepko and Krestan integrate theory and practice in describing the treatment of families with alcohol problems.?This book is the outgrowth of seven years of work in which we have made an attempt to integrate our own understanding of alcoholic dynamics within the framework of systemic family thErapy. Since we share both a commitment to the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as a commitment to approaching problems from a systemic viewpoint, it has always been a source of concern for us that the fields of alcoholism treatment and family therapy seem so polarized in their respective views on the nature of alcoholism as a symptomatic process. Our hope is that this book can provide a bridge between those two viewpoints as well as some new ways of looking at alcoholism that can be clinically useful and relevant to other practitioners.? ?from The Responsibility Trap

Eleven Days in August By Matthew Cobb
'I had thought that for me there could never again be any elation in war. But I had reckoned without the liberation of Paris - I had reckoned without remembering that I might be a part of that richly historic day. We were in Paris on the first day - one of the great days of all time.' (Ernie Pyle, US war correspondent) The liberation of Paris was a momentous point in twentieth-century history, yet it is now largely forgotten outside France. Eleven Days in August is a pulsating hour-by-hour reconstruction of these tumultuous events that shaped the final phase of the war and the future of France, Told with the pace of a thriller. While examining the conflicting national and international interests that played out in the bloody street fighting, it tells of how, in eleven dramatic days, people lived, fought and died in the most beautiful city in the world.

The Badlands Saloon By Jonathan Twingley
A one-of-a-kind, fully-illustrated debut novel about one rest- less and curious young man?s summer spent in a small North Dakota town?a meditation on a time in life when you don?t so much unfold the map as start to draw it. As  written  and  painted  by  Jonathan  Twingley,  this beautifully illustrated semi-autobiographical novel is a paean to the America that Jack Kerouac explored and  Joseph  Mitchell  and  Walt  Whitman  celebrated.  Set  in a small town nestled in the badlands of NoRth Dakota, this coming-of-age novel paints a loving portrait of oddball characters, the down-and-out, the ordinary, the outcasts, and the oft-ignored. Jonny is a dreamer, content wherever he is, as long as he has his sketchpad, paints, and paintbrushes. After a year in New York City attending art school, he escapes to the wide-open oasis of North Dakota. Jonny?s home-away-from-home is The Badlands Saloon, the local watering hole. There, he meets Willie Beck, the…

You: Staying Young By Michael F. Roizen
The body is the most fascinating machine ever created, and nobody talks about it in ways that are as illuminating and compelling as Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz. Most people think of the aging of our bodies the same way we think of the aging of our cars: the older we get, the more inevitable it is that we're going to break down. Most of us believe that at age 40 or so, we begin the slow and steady decline of our minds, our eyes, our ears, our joints, our arteries, our libido, and every other system that affects the quality of life (and how long we live it). But according to Dr. Roizen and Dr. Oz, that's a mistake. Aging isn't a decline in our systems. It's actually very purposeful. The very systems and biological processes that age us are designed to help us when we're a little bit younger. So what's our role as part of the aging population? To learn how those systems work so we can reprogram them to work the way …
