            The author never intended to release a collection of poems written over the past thirty-five years publicly. Many pieces contain very personal content, while other pieces have been gleaned from his life experiences and observations. Still others reflect the author's love for word...s and the adventures of using them to build, construct, and creatively describe a feeling or a story. Bonus: Also included is the author's short story Through Dying Eyes, a moving and reflective piece as you read through the diary of a man struggling to process the loss of his wife, who had encouraged him to keep the journal.

            Hurricane Sisters, award-winning poet Ginger Andrews' second collection, contains poems of fierce candor and sharp, unique awareness from the perspective of Andrews herself, a cleaning woman in North Bend, Oregon. These Carver-esque insights into the everyday of the American work...ing class balance grief, depression, lust, poverty, and, above all, faith; not in something beyond or higher than the living experience, but in a spirituality amidst the material truths of this world, even under the grimmest of circumstances. Hurricane Sisters stares into the holy, the barbaric, the beautiful and the hideous, the realities of blue-collar Americana, with the frankness and empathy of a survivor and a believer. It sees everything and never averts its eyes.

            'A manifesto for recalibrating' DAILY MAIL 'I can't think of many books where the reader feels so passionately on the side of the narrator' GUARDIAN 'A profound redefinition of the very idea of vitality' FINANCIAL TIMES Josie George lives in a tiny terraced house in the urban Wes...t Midlands with her son. Since her early childhood, she has lived with the fluctuating and confusing challenge of disabling chronic illness. But Josie's world is surprising, intricate, dynamic. She has learned what to look for: the routines of her friends at the community centre; the neighbourhood birds in flight; the slow changes in the morning light, in her small garden, in her growing son, in herself. In January 2018, Josie sets out to tell the story of her still life, over the course of a year. As the seasons shift, and the tides of her body draw in and out, Josie begins to unfurl her history. And against a world which values progress and productivity above all else, Josie sets out a quietly radical alternative: to value and treasure life for life itself, with all its great and small miracles. 'Full of kindness, A Still Life will make you a better person' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'A Still Life is joy-lit: vivid, lovestruck, hopeful and wise' MELISSA HARRISON 'Josie George is the kind of writer I strive to be ... A tough, tender, beautiful book about existing in a body in the world' ELLA RISBRIDGER 'Could not be more timely ... An immensely talented writer' LINDA GRANT

            From the hit podcast Chat 10 Looks 3 comes a smart, hilarious and heartfelt book about friendship, the vagaries of life and culture, and everything in between. In 2014, two of Australia's most high-profile journalists sat at a kitchen table, hit record on a phone and started a ra...mbling conversation that's still going on (and on). From books to TV, music to cooking, friendship to films, there's little cultural terrain Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales haven't traversed in their oddly named but nonetheless wildly popular podcast Chat 10 Looks 3. Now, in their first book together, the pair takes a stroll through some of the issues of our time, offering advice for would-be writers, thoughts on developing a rich reading life, tips for navigating the perilous world of social media, and the secrets of a great friendship, all with the digressions that listeners of their podcast have come to love. Here Crabb and Sales discuss kindness, success and failure, and not taking yourself - or others - too seriously, with a liberal sprinkling of fairy wrens, granny pants, show tunes, creative insults, diabolical mum bags and CLANGs. Whether you're a devoted listener of Chat 10 Looks 3, curious as to what all the fuss is about, or simply looking to cry-laugh on public transport, Well Hello is the book for you.

            Jane Gibian's poetry is remarkable for its clarity of perception and its sensitivity to the details and rhythms of life - whether in nature or in social routines. The poetry's engagement is first and foremost with the natural environment, and with the contrast between the human e...ngagement - with its extremes of fascination and despair - and the natural world itself, disinterested and unforgiving. The landscapes range from the coast to the forest, from rivers in urban settings to country towns and their surroundings. Their beauty is felt alongside their vulnerability to degradation. Throughout there is the awareness of connectedness, between people, places, seasons, animate and inanimate things - and the power of language to celebrate these connections, to register joy and constraint, and to draw on different kinds of reality. Later in the collection, Gibian's poetry focusses on the passage of time and its vagaries, the ancient cycles of nature, the threat of change, personal histories, the fleeting moments of awareness captured in poems. 'A poet whose work seems full of grace and luminous vision.' - Judith Beveridge 'Sensuous, beautifully tactile and alive, these poems glitter with the world around us in all its fragility, damage and wonder.' - Peter Boyle

Original and thought-provoking, this memorable collection of philosophical poems and succinct essays invites you to rediscover a variety of living topics from a fresh and unconventional point of view. On Existence The fundamental paradox of existence may be viewed as consisting of the apparent duality called form and essence . Components that, intrinsically reflecting each other, are therefore one.

            For us time only rolls one way; There is no going back. Nothing that you or I can do Will stop it rolling on its track. Patricia Mortenson is a reserved person who rarely shares her thoughts. In her debut collection, Mortenson offers short poems that lyrically and sometimes humor...ously share unsolicited advice; uncomfortable observations; reflections on health, sweetness, and light; unpopular opinions; and random thoughts that touch on not just her life, but also her family and the outside world. While leading others on a journey inward, Mortenson encourages all of us to take a few moments to examine our own paths through life filled with joys, sorrows, and unique experiences that help us decide who we are and what we project into the world on a daily basis. Flying is a volume of introspective poetry that examines the intricacies of life through the eyes of a senior who has experienced much in life.

            Here, you are invited to ride a rollercoaster of memories with me, which has two opposing poles: the lowest of lows, those of sadness, gloom, and grief, and the highest of highs, representing utmost joy, happiness, and the willingness to simply let go and have fun. In Passion for... Memories, you will not only read my poems: you will read my innermost thoughts and my remarkable journeys, both beautiful and disheveled. The process of sharing my poetry has been transparent, vulnerable, and raw. Here, I speak to the world from the very depths of my heart, hoping that my words reach the very depths of your heart, too. What you have in this book is my heart, bare and tender, enclosed in your hands. Please take care of it, and most importantly, let go, be free, and enjoy the ride-- life is too short, and there's way too much fun.

            Memories of Violence in Peru and the Congo: Writing on the Brink
             

            Memories of Violence in Peru and the Congo: Writing on the Brink (Hardback)

            The book presents an intertextual and comparative analysis of memories of violence in Peruvian and Congolese Literature. Examining a variety of novels that offer insightful representation of violence in their respective historical settings, the author argues that similar historic...al experiences between Latin America and Africa engender ethical/aesthetic responses and enhance trans-continental critical dialogues in comparative literary studies. In the same way that the drama of the Congo has become the symbolic open wound of (post)colonial dispensation in Africa, Spanish conquest in Latin America also produced spaces where the legacy of colonialism is strongly visible and memorable, providing fertile ground for the reproduction of violence. This book explores the concept and reality of violence beyond its most obvious manifestations, demonstrating how in the colonial contexts of Peru and the Congo, violence was a function of (post)colonial power dynamics and deeply engrained socio-political, economic and cultural ordering and othering. From this perspective, the work considers and re-examines theoretical contributions from authors such as John Galtung, Michel Foucault, Immanuel Wallerstein, Anibal Quijano, Frantz Fanon, Achille Mbembe, Eboussi Boulaga, Pierre Nora, Susan Sontag, Stevan Weine, Cathy Caruth and Nelson Maldonado-Torres. This book will be of interest for scholars working on how violence is explored and represented in literature and other art forms.
