Her mother’s death and her father’s madness leave G unloved and unwanted as a child. Her runaway marriage brings her children but not the fulfillment she yearns for. Many years later, a hurricane destroys her Jamaican country house where she now lives alone and she ends up—unwillingly—in a ritzy retirement home in the city, placed there by her well-to-do but distant daughter. Displaced and angry, G is forced to deal with her seemingly incompatible housemates and the pain of her past. Surprisingly, she ends up learning to love and laugh, to reconnect with the children she thought she had lost, and to finally gain a sense of belonging. Told in G’s voice as she writes in her journal—a newfound solace from pain—Dancing Lessons is by turns sad, satirical, hilarious, and ultimately redemptive. It is infused with the cadences and color of Jamaica, yet it connects with anyone anywhere who engages with notions of family, love, loss, friendship, and belonging.

Rake, drunkard, aesthete, gossip, raconteur extraordinaire: the narrator of Bohumil Hrabal’s rambling, rambunctious masterpiece Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age is all these and more. Speaking to a group of sunbathing women who remind him of lovers past, this elderly roué tells the story of his life—or at least unburdens himself of a lifetime’s worth of stories. Thus we learn of amatory conquests (and humiliations), of scandals both private and public, of military adventures and domestic feuds, of what things were like “in the days of the monarchy” and how they’ve changed since. As the book tumbles restlessly forward, and the comic tone takes on darker shadings, we realize we are listening to a man talking as much out of desperation as from exuberance. Hrabal, one of the great Czech writers of the twentieth century, as well as an inveterate haunter of Prague’s pubs and football stadiums, developed a unique method which he termed “palavering,” whereby characters gab and soliloquize with abandon. Part drunken boast, part soul-rending confession, part metaphysical poem on the nature of love and time, this astonishing novel (which unfolds in a single monumental sentence) shows why he has earned the admiration of such writers as Milan Kundera, John Banville, and Louise Erdrich.

The Art of the Travel Sketch is inspired by American author Kurt Vonnegut’s observation that “peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God.” Warfield has devoted a lifetime of world travel and architectural research to record in sketches, words and photographs the most exotic vernacular environments and the cultures and people who create them. The book is intended as both an educational volume and a highly personal visual memoir. Its focus is not on “how” to draw, but rather on “why” one draws. The book celebrates the delight and excitement of travel as well.

"Not only an amazing dancer, but a kick-ass woman to look up to." —Jenny McCarthy From the Inside Flap "All of my fears and insecurities, the adrenaline rushing through my body, the perspiration on the palms of my hands—it all came to a boil. Then the music started, and like so many times before, the nerves vanished. The minute and thirty seconds I had to dance . . . was magic." On February 26, 2006, professional dancer Cheryl Burke and pop singer Drew Lachey were declared the winners of Dancing with the Stars on Cheryl's first season with the show. As the media parade began, it was a unique moment of validation and transformation for Cheryl that marked the start of an exhilarating new stage in her life and her career. How did this once shy girl, a girl who loved to dance but gave up ballet because she didn't have a "ballet body," overcome numerous insecurities to realize her dream of a successful dance career and become a champion—twice—on one of the most popular shows on television? In Dancing Lessons, Cheryl Burke invites you into her life to experience her remarkable journey, from her first dance steps to ballroom dancing competitions around the world to Dancing with the Stars. Cheryl shares the glamour and excite- ment of the ballroom dancing world as well as the grit and hard work it demands of competitors. Leading you into the rehearsal studios and backstage at Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl tells surprising stories about her celebrity partners and what she has learned from each of them. You'll find out how she and Drew Lachey came up with the sexy moves of their winning freestyle dance routine and how Tom DeLay really felt about wearing rhinestones, as well as what Emmitt Smith taught her about respect and which Dancing with the Stars partner Cheryl came close to dating. Speaking candidly about her long struggle to transform self-doubt into self-confidence, Cheryl opens up in this book about her body issues and her difficulties in dealing with the media spotlight on her weight. She also tells the truth about the press's attempts to portray her as a party girl. At every stage, her family played an important role in keeping her focused on her future even while they sometimes disagreed about whether that future would include making a living from dance. As irresistible as the tango and as uplifting as the jive, Dancing Lessons is an engaging story of courage, passion, and persistence. Read it and let Cheryl inspire you to give yourself permission to dance, as she tells her students, and pursue your own dreams, one step at a time.

"Cheryl Burke shares her inspiring story of how she overcame a painful past to fulfill her dreams.
