Omotola Rhodes has everything any young woman in her shoes could be proud of--more money than she could spend in a single lifetime, drop-dead gorgeous looks with a figure to match, brains that is better than average, and most of all, the adoration of her loving father. It was a classic modern-day fairy tale, right down to the gorgeous wardrobe and the magnificent houses with servants at her beck and call. But all that soon came crashing down when her father insisted on her marrying someone of his own choosing. There was nothing wrong with the arrangement except for one single fact: Omotola has fallen deeply in love with Michael Akin- Taylor, the heir to the Akin- Taylor dynasty and a sworn enemy of Chief Stephen Rhodes. Michael Akin-Taylor would rather die than see his beloved with another. Especially the suitor favoured by his estranged proposed father-in-law. No man in his right mind would choose such a man for his only daughter. No man. It was a fight he was prepared to fight to the end. Anything to win the beautiful hand of the lovely Omotola. Fatal Obsession is a story of love that goes far beyond filialility, blackmail, and kidnapping. It is a story of how love conquers all obstacles.

A mother is one being God has given—this being will protect her child so that no harm would come to her child even if she has to lose her life—such is a mother’s love, but what about a ‘child’ who threatens to kill? ‘My gut feeling tells me that this will be over in a matter of days.’ ‘Look at this beach, this sandy beach,’ Waidnas said as he bent a little to scoop a handful of sand. ‘This beach is beautiful, but if the sand is going to hurt me, when I drop on it, or land hard on it, then I will not return to this beach anymore,’ he spoke without looking at her, but letting the sand just drain from his palm. * * * Nature creates and then steals beauty, but man . . .man destroys it—sometimes completely. As he looked at her eyes, he could sense the deep, very, very deep sadness behind beauty. As he stood on her shadow, for the very first time, he thought to himself, he was looking at beauty, beauty where it rightfully belongs, without all that unnatural application of talcum, or make-up, or whatever they call it, to enhance the beauty of oneself.

The sestina (of medieval French origin) is a complex poetic form of 39 lines (six sestets and a three-line "envoy") in which the six end-words (teleutons) of the lines of the first sestet stanza are repeated in a specific order as teleutons in the five succeeding sestets. In the envoy, the six teleutons are again picked up, one of them being buried in, and one finishing, each line. Because of the complexity of the form, the sestina fell out of favor with poets for several decades. However, a twenty-first century revival of the form is underway. This is the first anthology of sestinas that showcases both traditional and innovative examples of the form by modern and contemporary poets, award winners, and emerging writers alike. Organized by such themes as Americana; Art; Love and Sex; and Memory, Contemplation, Retrospection, and Death, the collection also includes sestinas with irregular teleutons and unconventional sestinas. An evocative introduction by Marilyn Krysl acquaints readers with the form. The volume concludes with useful indexes of first lines and teleutons, increasing access to the poems beyond the poets' names.

“An electric page-turner that reads like a thriller.” — MOLLIE HEMINGWAY “No prominent journalist covered the story as completely as Byron York. Obsession . . . is a definitive history and a cautionary tale.” – ANDREW C. McCARTHY From the moment Donald Trump was elected president—even before he was inaugurated—Democrats called for his impeachment. That call, starting on the margins of the party and the press, steadily grew until it became a deafening media and Democratic obsession. It culminated first in the Mueller report—which failed to find any evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the part of the president—and then in a failed impeachment. And yet, even now, the Democrats and their media allies insist that President Trump must be guilty of something. They still accuse him of being a Russian stooge and an obstructer of justice. They claim he was “not exonerated” by the Mueller report. But the truth, as veteran reporter Byron York makes clear—using his unequaled access to sources inside Congress and the White House—is that Democrats and the media were gripped by an anti-Trump hysteria that blinded them to reality. In a fast-moving story of real-life Washington intrigue, York reveals: Why Donald Trump—at first—resisted advice to fire FBI director James Comey The strategy behind the Trump defense team’s full cooperation with Mueller’s investigators—and how they felt betrayed by Mueller How the Mueller team knew very early in the investigation that there was no evidence of “Russian collusion” Why the Trump defense team began to suspect that Mueller was not really in charge of the special counsel investigation Why Nancy Pelosi gave up trying to restrain her impeachment-obsessed party Why Trump’s lawyers—certain of his innocence in the Mueller investigation—were even less worried about the Democrats' Ukraine investigation. Byron York takes you inside the deliberations of the president’s defense counsel, interviews congressional Republicans who were shocked at the extremism of their Democratic colleagues—and resolute in opposing them—and draws an unforgettable portrait of an administration under siege from an implacable—and obsessed—opposition party.

For many, Close Encounters of the Third Kind (CE3K) is not so much a movie as a religious experience. On its release in 1977, CE3K virtually redefined the science fiction film, shifting it away from spaceships, laser guns, and bug-eyed monsters into a modified form of science fiction that John Wyndham once called ‘logical fantasy’. What would it be like if extra-terrestrials made contact with people on Earth? How would it feel? Like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Steven Spielberg’s primary inspiration, CE3K is concerned with mankind’s evolution towards the stars, towards a state of transcendence. But Spielberg’s vision hinges not so much on cool scientific intellect being the key to our next stage of evolution, as on the necessary development of emotional intelligence. To that end, we must regain our childlike curiosity for what lies beyond the skies, we must recover our capacity to experience wonder. Intensity of emotion is inherent to the film’s meaning, and the aim of this book is to explore this in detail. Along the way it delves into the film’s production history, explores Spielberg’s remarkable cinematic realisation of the film (including a comparison study of the three different release versions), and considers in detail how CE3K fits into the Spielberg oeuvre.

This thought-provoking book is a search for answers to the vexing phenomenon of why the world's undisputed greatest rugby team can't win the World Cup. It is an in-depth investigation that explores how societal change, combined with the arrival of professionalism, has impacted on the ability of the All Blacks to perform on the biggest stage.The entire development programme for professional players comes under scrutiny to determine why the system keeps failing at critical junctures. Every aspect of the game is examined: the changed motivations of players since money was introduced; the New Zealand Rugby Union's obsession with the World Cup; the failure to produce strong leaders; the consequence of the arrival of Generation Y; the fixation with style over substance in terms of how the All Blacks play; and how the influx of Polynesian players has altered the way the nation coaches the game. All of these factors are analysed, with conclusions drawn on how each has played a role in preventing the All Blacks from winning the World Cup since 1987.Running through the narrative are the thoughts of many of the men who played for the 1987 All Blacks. Some of the greatest names in All Black history - Sean Fitzpatrick, Alan Whetton, David Kirk, Grant Fox and Brian Lochore - give their thoughts on the key themes and compare and contrast the amateur and professional eras.The end result is a compelling and authoritative read that gives the most detailed and comprehensive answer to a question everyone has asked but no one has ever satisfactorily answered.

Celebrity culture surrounds us. We are inundated with information about actors and actresses, athletes, musicians, and others who have become famous or infamous. Although we never will likely meet or get to know them, our interest in them seems boundless. We are literally obsessed with being entertained as well as with the people who entertain us. Who our celebrities are has also shifted; in the past, celebrity status was bestowed on men and women of great accomplishment, those who had given the world something to be proud of and to celebrate. Conversely, today’s celebrities are generally people involved in entertainment—from TV newscasters to people who appear on reality television programs, as well as some who are simply famous for being famous. What remains an enigma is why we, as a society, are so infatuated with being entertained, as well as with those who entertain us and appear in the media. This book makes sense of this spectacle by explaining the reasons for this obsession from a psychological, social, and historical perspective. It suggests that we have become addicted in much the same way that a person becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol. Finally, the author offers his observations on how to free our minds from this captivation. Anyone interested in understanding more about our need to live vicariously through the rich and famous will find answers in this book.
