              When the young son of an Aryan Brotherhood of Texas gang captain goes missing, Ranger Darren Matthews has no choice but to investigate the crime. Following the election of Donald Trump, a new wave of racial violence has swept the state. Dark, swampy and filled with skeletal trees..., Caddo Lake is so large it crosses into Lousiana. This is deep country and the rule of law doesn't mean much to the Brotherhood, beyond what it can do for them. A further complication is that Brotherhood is squatting on the land of a former Freedmen's community, and one of the last descendants of these former slaves is actually a suspect in the possible murder of the missing boy. Instructed by his lieutenant to use the investigation to gather more evidence that might help to take down the Texas chapter of the Brotherhood, Darren is playing very dangerous game indeed.

              In the 1960's New York was a battlefield for the city's numerous gangs as they fought over territory. On the 4th of July weekend the gangs meet to discuss how to work together to control the city. Framed for the murder of Cyrus, leader of New York's most powerful gang, the Warrio...rs have to fight their way across New York back to the safety of Coney Island hunted by the city's gangs Based on the ancient writer Xenophon's `Anabasis', an account of the Spartans who fought in the Persian wars, Sol Yurick makes the gang violence of 1960's New York as mythic as Greek drama and created one of the most acute and understanding portrayals of gang culture ever published.

              Christopher McDougall's new running partner, Sherman, is ill-tempered, obstinate, and often so uncooperative that Christopher leads him with a rope. Sherman is also a donkey. After rescuing Sherman from a neglectful owner and almost certain death, Christopher McDougall plunges in...to the world of Burro Racing -- running a marathon accompanied by a Donkey. His aim is to rehabilitate Sherman, to give him purpose, and to participate in the World Championship Pack Burro Race in Fairplay, Colorado, where Burro Racing was invented. But along the way, as McDougall learns how to care for his new companion and meets the men and women who have fallen in love with Burro Racing, he discovers how working with animals can teach profound lessons about what it means to be human.

              It's New Year's Eve, the holiday of forced fellowship, mandatory fun, and paper hats. While dining out with her husband and their friends, Bunny -an acerbic, mordantly witty, and clinically depressed writer-fully unravels. Her breakdown lands her in the psych ward of a prestigiou...s New York hospital, where she refuses all modes of recommended treatment. Instead, she passes the time chronicling the lives of her fellow lunatics and writing a novel about what brought her there. Her story is a brilliant and brutally funny dive into the disordered mind of a woman who sees the world all too clearly. Propelled by razor-sharp comic timing and rife with pinpoint insights, Kirshenbaum examines what it means to be unloved and loved, to succeed and fail, to be at once impervious and raw. Rabbits for Food shows how art can lead us out of-or into-the depths of disconsolate loneliness and piercing grief. A bravura literary performance from one of America's finest writers.

And then, one day, Ruby comes to find Daniel. And now he must decide who to choose - and who to trust.

              'I don't know why I behaved the way I did, and I kept doing it; he kept doing it. And though I might once have easily brushed it away, suddenly I could not. Nor could I confront him. The conversation moved too quickly.' Quin and Margot have been friends for more than twenty years.... Quin is an extrovert and a sensualist who thrives on flirtation and ambiguity. He is at his happiest when encouraging intimate confidences from the women he meets. Always clear with him about the boundaries of their own relationship, until now Margot has looked on his behaviour with a mixture of ambivalence and affection. But when Quin's actions are held up against a new light, and his life begins to unravel, Margot tries to work towards a deeper understanding of her friend, the damage he might have caused, and the loyalty he deserves. This is Pleasure is a masterpiece of fiction that looks unflinchingly at the difficult and necessary debates of our present moment. It rejects moral certainties while honouring the ambiguity and vulnerability at the heart of all human relationships.

              Stillness is the Key: An Ancient Strategy for Modern Life

              Stillness is the Key: An Ancient Strategy for Modern Life (Hardback, Main)

              Throughout history, there's been one indelible quality that great leaders, makers, artists and fighters have shared. The Zen Buddhists described it as inner peace, the Stoics called it ataraxia and Ryan Holiday calls it stillness: the ability to be steady, focussed and calm in a ...constantly busy world. This quality, valued by every major school of thought from Buddha to Seneca, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, is urgently necessary today. And, Holiday shows, it is entirely attainable. Just as Winston Churchill used bricklaying as a time to recharge and reflect, or Oprah Winfrey learned deep empathy from her quiet childhood, we can all benefit from stillness to feed into our greater ambitions - whether winning a battle, building a business, or simply finding happiness, peace and self-direction. Filled with wisdom and examples from historical and contemporary figures, this book shows how to cultivate this quality in your own life. Because stillness is not merely inactivity, but the doorway to the self-mastery, discipline and focus necessary to succeed in this competitive, noisy world.
