For anyone who has ever loved a dog against their better judgement... Dogged Optimism is the story of a scruffy little dog and the woman who loves her. Killarney the Aussie terrier is not afraid of anything: big dogs, snakes, cancer. Belinda Pollard is afraid of many things, so Killarney becomes her in-house motivational speaker through grief, job loss and failed romance. If you've ever loved a dog or needed a laugh, you'll be inspired by Killarney's motto: Grab life by the throat and shake every last drop of joy out of it. Wrestle it, if you have to. Praise for Dogged Optimism A delightful read, as much about the ups and downs of owning a wilful dog as facing up to life, especially when it doesn't turn out as expected. Marianne Wheelaghan, The Blue Suitcase Anyone who's ever adored a dog can relate to this evocative, humorous tale. Molly Greene, The Gen Delacourt Mysteries Will charm you with its window into life Down Under and inspire you with its insights into overcoming personal challenges. Dawn Dicker, Writer & Content Strategist A heart-warming tale of one woman's special bond with her four-legged friend. Tanya Arnold, Pupcake Queen Belinda Pollard is an award-winning mystery author and former journalist who used to chuckle about people who treated their pets like children - until it happened to her. Her hobbies now include dog-walking in the rain and watching dog-training videos. She lives in Australia, travels the world (when she can find a good petsitter), and blogs about Real Life on a Beautiful Planet at www.belindapollard.com.

"A strange, tragic, inspired novel . . . as poignant as anything in modern fiction." — E. M. Forster This acclaimed novel marked the debut of one of the twentieth century's most brilliant and important writers. In Virginia Woolf's captivating exploration of a young woman's growing self-awareness, the events of a shipboard journey to South America parallel the naive heroine's inner quest. Her experiences, from a first kiss to a surprising flowering of real love, may inspire the reader to reflect on gender roles in society, love among intellectuals, and the strivings and sorrows of life. The Voyage Out offers an excellent introduction to Woolf's writing. Not only is it the first of her novels, it is also one of the most accessible. Less formally experimental than Woolf's later books, but highly representative of her poetic style and innovative techniques, it offers a moving depiction of the thrills and confusion of youth.

Prior to the civil rights movement, comedians performed for audiences that were clearly delineated by race. Black comedians performed for black audiences and white comedians performed for whites. Yet during the past forty-five years, black comics have become progressively more central to mainstream culture. In Laughing Mad, Bambi Haggins looks at how this transition occurred in a variety of media and shows how this integration has paved the way for black comedians and their audiences to affect each other. Historically, African American performers have been able to use comedy as a pedagogic tool, interjecting astute observations about race relations while the audience is laughing. And yet, Haggins makes the convincing argument that the potential of African American comedy remains fundamentally unfulfilled as the performance of blackness continues to be made culturally digestible for mass consumption. Rather than presenting biographies of individual performers, Haggins focuses on the ways in which the comic persona is constructed and changes across media, from stand-up, to the small screen, to film. She examines the comic televisual and cinematic personae of Dick Gregory, Bill Cosby, Flip Wilson, and Richard Pryor and considers how these figures set the stage for black comedy in the next four decades. She reads Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock as emblematic of the first and second waves of postcivil rights era African American comedy, and she looks at the socio-cultural politics of Whoopi Goldbergs comic persona through the lens of gender and crossover. Laughing Mad also explores how the comedy of Dave Chappelle speaks to and for the post-soul generation. A rigorous analytic analysis, this book interrogates notions of identity, within both the African American community and mainstream popular culture. Written in engaging and accessible prose, it is also a book that will travel from the seminar room, to the barbershop, to the kitchen table, allowing readers to experience the sketches, stand-up, and film comedies with all the laughter they deserve.

Richard Ford returns with four deftly linked Christmas stories narrated by the iconic Frank Bascombe. Now sixty-eight, Frank resides again in the New Jersey suburb of Haddam, and has thrived – seemingly but not utterly – amidst the devastations of Hurricane Sandy. The desolations of Sandy, which left countless lives unmoored, are the perfect backdrop for Ford – and Bascombe. With a flawless comedic sensibility and unblinking intelligence, these stories range over the full complement of universal subjects: ageing, race, loss, faith, marriage, the real estate debacle – the tumult of the world we live in.
