DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A groundbreaking novel exploring the intersection between race, class and mental health in the UK 'A strong and humane work of fiction' Jackie Kay 'That is the glory of being a mental patient. Nothing is impossible.' It is the 1990s, and Gloria is living in a London psychiatric ward. She is unapologetically loud, audacious and eternally on the brink of bursting into song. After several months of uninterrupted routine, she is joined by another young black woman - Merle - who is full of silences and fear. Unable to confide in their doctors, they agree to journal their pasts. Whispered into tape recorders and scrawled ferociously at night, the remarkable stories of their lives are revealed. In this tender, deeply-moving depiction of mental health, Roy creates a striking portrait of two women finding strength in their shared vulnerability, as they navigate a system that fails to protect them. Life-affirming and fearlessly hopeful, this is an unforgettable story. 'This is a novel of daring - enjoyable, surprising and original.' Bernardine Evaristo 'A striking commentary' Scotsman 'A strong, humorous and moving piece of fiction . . . such is the life injected into the characters that by the end of the novel there remains that reluctance to part with people you have come to love' calabash 'A joy' Pride 'Unflinchingly told . . . harrowing but also shockingly funny' Big Issue

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Rooted in analytical psychology, The Fat Lady Sings challenges the notion that the fat patient must change to fit into a thin world. For years we have been bombarded by warnings about the Obesity Epidemic, a concern rivaling that about terrorism. Curiously, the depth psychological literature is mostly silent about this preoccupation, its origins, meaning, and the psychotherapeutic treatment issues involved. Almost everything written about fat and being fat comes from the world of the slender. Fat people are rarely consulted about their lives, how they eat and move and live. They are too often not seen as credible, or as reliable witnesses to their own experience. The Fat Lady Sings is an exploration of fat and our culture, the fat complex that grips our culture, how the war on obesity is fought in the clinical setting, and how being fat is an ongoing traumatic experience. The book grows out of the author's life as a fat woman, her work as a Jungian psychotherapist, and as a patient in analysis.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Paul Dogolov, divorced Vietnam War hero and novelist, teaches a writing class in a maximum security prison. Convinced that one of his students, serving a life sentence for brutal murder, is innocent, he sets out to find the real killer. The search leads him to a remote, dust-blasted California desert town and a scorpion's nest of bizarre and vicious characters. The result is a tale of intrigue, corruption, and savage humor, in which Dogolov, through his encounter with the horrific, yet wildly comic, Fat Lady of the title, learns about terror, degradation, and ultimately, love in a funhouse-mirror world where illusion is reality, reality, a chimera. "David Scott Milton is certainly one of the most talented, uncompromising prose writers of his generation, and The Fat Lady Sings is perhaps his best and also most appealing novel." — Peter Bogdanovich

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

David W. Barber has delighted readers all around the world with the quirky definitions of Accidentals on Purpose: A Musician's Dictionary, the irreverent history of Bach, Beethoven and the Boys, a hilariously offbeat history of dance and ballet in Tutus, Tights and Tiptoes and a host of other internationally bestselling books of musical humor. With When the Fat Lady Sings, the popular author and musical humorist turns his attention to what Dr. Johnson called that "exotick and irrational entertainment," the world of opera. Here are stories of love and lust, jealousy, intrigue, murder and tragic death - and that's just the stuff happening off stage, in the composers' personal lives. Wait till you read about the opera plots. Informal yet informative, witty yet wise, this book will both enlighten and entertain you. As always, Dave Donald has provided witty and clever cartoons that perfectly complement the text. This completely revised and expanded edition includes new material and an index, to make it easier for readers to find all their favorite references. "This is a very humorous book, but at the same time it tells it like it is, or was. David's not really fabricating anything, he just manages to give you the gist of the history while leaving out all the boring bits." - Maureen Forrester

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This is a memoir about drug addiction. Jimmy Halloran tells his version from a very young age, which gives the reader a sense of how early experiences and circumstances can be factors leading to addiction. He writes about what it was like being addicted to drugs and the daily insane activities of dope-fiend behavior. Jimmy talks about hitting rock bottom and kicking his habit, and discusses rebounding and the determination required in the battle to recover his life and his sanity. Further, he offers an insider's behind-the-scenes view of the activities that took place during treatment in a therapeutic treatment facility. Having survived his addiction, Jimmy provides thought-provoking observations about life and vignettes from his experiences of living a drug-free, clean life. Jimmy wrote this book to show that it is possible for those addicted to narcotic drugs to overcome their problems and start living a normal life. His lifestyle of a hard-core drug addict for many years was torturous and he makes it clear that he easily understands why those who find themselves in the same painful predicament would want to cut their lives short and simply end it all by overdosing. Jimmy believes that life is short enough as it is without rushing death. Just being alive is in itself nothing short of a miracle that we too often take for granted. He offers the inspiring message that life is precious and that sometimes we need a wake-up call to realize it. For some, that call can come when they feel trapped in an addiction with seemingly no way out. Suddenly something unexpected may come along, like an opportunity for change and relief. Jimmy's hope is that, for some reading this, it will be their way out.

When real life sucks, there's always theatre. Sassy, irreverent Aggie Stockdale should have gotten the lead in her high school's production of Hello Dolly! It's her dream role; she's had the part memorized since she was ten; and she and Roger Morton, who's playing the male lead, definitely had chemistry in the audition.

What happens after she checks the cast list for the musical will hurl Aggie into an unexpected journey of tears, friendship, jealousy, revenge, Oreos, and lots and lots of theatre. She'll discover hidden talents and new friends; she'll survive a daunting audition and revel in a thrilling opening night; she'll search for love, inspiration, help with her math homework, and the perfect closing number; and her emotional ride won't be over 'til the fat lady sings.

Sometimes when there is so much suffering in a persons life and nothing seems to turn out the way one plans, then it becomes easy to just give up on believing that there is a God in heaven who loves us and cares about our success. What we dont understand is that when we first give our lives to God, we agree to die. We agree to allow God to order the steps of our lives so that He can cause our destiny to fit His plans. That dying is very difficult, particularly when we dont understand it. This book is about the dyingand the coming to understand why it must happen.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Everybody knows that Texans take their sports seriously. Whether it's a high school football clash on Friday night, a college baseball game on Saturday afternoon, or a pro basketball matchup on Sunday morning, sports is serious business in the Lone Star State. How serious? Ask Don Meredith to comment on former Dallas Cowboys Coach Tom Landry: "He's a perfectionist. If he was married to Racquel Welch, he'd expect her to cook." Or talk to golf pro Lee Trevino about the tour: "You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work." And if you're still not convinced, read what former Texas Rangers manager Whitey Herzog had to say in 1973: "We need just two players to be a contender. Just Babe Ruth and Sandy Koufax." These quotes and hundreds more are included in this collection of classic Texas sports quotes. More than ten years in the making, ". . . 'Til the Fat Lady Sings" features approximately four hundred quotes from more than a hundred different sources. Coaches, sports writers, athletes, broadcasters, fans, politicians, actors, and team owners all speak out with wit and wisdom about the games and the names of Texas sports. This book is a must have for everyone who plays and enjoys the game of life.
