The House Guests, a classic memoir of animal companionship from John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook. A master of the noir novel turns his sharp insights and considerable narrative talents to the human-animal bond in this charming work of nonfiction. In The House Guests, John D. MacDonald tells the story of his family’s unforgettable pets: tomcats Roger and Geoffrey, two mischievous boys whose zany habits and remarkable senses of humor endeared them to everyone they met, and an extraordinary goose called Knees. Both a rare peek inside MacDonald’s private life and a fascinating compendium of information about the animal kingdom, The House Guests is by turns touching, hilarious, and absorbing, sure to mesmerize MacDonald fans and pet lovers alike.

MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field. Talk about the best.”—Mary Higgins Clark

The movie Argo was fake before it was real. This is the story of the original Argo and of the six Americans who escaped the capture of the American Embassy in Iran in 1979. Lijek, one of the six, explains why they were in Iran, what went wrong and how they managed to escape the embassy compound. As chaos increasingly gripped Iran and its government fell, the Americans survived tension-filled days before reaching sanctuary with the Canadians. Then came an emotional roller-coaster ride, long days of boredom punctuated by nerve-wracking episodes, against the background of concern for their hostage colleagues and fear Washington had forgotten them. Finally the excitement of Argo, the arrival of CIA operative Tony Mendez and his daring scheme to exfiltrate the "houseguests," as they were called in secret communications between Tehran, Ottawa and Washington. Lijek explains how the six reacted to the CIA's "best bad idea" and what it was like to exit the airport with false papers, hoping the plan would work as advertised. He presents an overview of the years that followed, during which they repeatedly lied to hide the CIA's participation. He ends with the controversy that erupted when the CIA announced its role and continues to this day, as what had been the "Canadian Caper" became something else, at least in the eyes of many.

Today we live in snug, well-furnished houses surrounded by the trappings of a civilised life. But we are not alone – we suffer a constant stream of unwanted visitors. Our houses, our food, our belongings, our very existence are under constant attack from a host of invaders eager to take advantage of our shelter, our food stores and our tasty soft furnishings. From bats in the belfry to beetles in the cellar, moths in the wardrobe and mosquitoes in the bedroom, humans cannot escape the attentions of the animal kingdom. Nature may be red in tooth and claw, but when it's our blood the bedbugs are after, when it's our cereal bowl that's littered with mouse droppings, and when it's our favourite chair that collapses due to woodworm in the legs, it really brings it home the fact that we and our homes are part of nature too. This book represents a 21st century version of the classic Mediaeval bestiary. It poses questions such as where these animals came from, can we live with them, can we get rid of them, and should we? Written in Richard Jones's engaging style and with a funky-retro design, House Guests, House Pests will be a book to treasure.

Written in response to readers' requests, "Houseplants Are Houseguests" is a collection of the best of In the Pot, Anne Moore's column which has run for over ten years in the newspapers of the Seacoast Media Group. In addition to her tips for success at gardening indoors, the column reflects her own personal approach to plant care, one of a close and caring relationship -- that gets results. The advice she offers is based on her own experience with all of the plants she writes about, in some cases beginning badly but ending well. Her tips on how to sow seed, take cuttings, prune and divide, set bulbs, and prevent diseases come directly from her own research and experimentation. She frankly shares what works and what doesn't for her. The plants described in this book include popular and well-known houseplants, several associated with major holidays, and a few that are less well known. Moore writes with reverence for these individual personalities, with admiration of their beauty and endurance, and with humor at what is sometimes weird and wild behavior. Her advice to her readers is simple: "If I can do it, so can you!" About the Author Anne Moore is a freelance writer and amateur horticulturist. Her interest in houseplants and container gardening has provided subjects for her column, In the Pot, appearing in newspapers and online, and for numerous magazine articles. Moore is a graduate of Wellesley College where she did not major in botany, but she has educated herself about plants through courses offered by the many horticultural organizations in New England, and by trial and error in her own indoor and outdoor gardens. She is a member of the Garden Club of Brookline, a former trustee of the New England Wild Flower Society, and a member of the Steering Committee of the Wellesley College Friends of Horticulture. She has been an annual exhibitor and award winner in the New England Spring Flower Show sponsored by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. She has homes in both New Hampshire and Arizona, where she lives with her husband and plants.Website: www.annemooreplants.com About the Artist Rebecca Saunders is an artist and photographer who captures the colors and textures of the natural world, whether in a greenhouse or garden, at home or traveling.

It is the summer of 1941 and Abe Auer, a Russian immigrant and small-town junkyard owner, has become disenchanted with his life. So when his friend Max Hoffman, a local rabbi with a dark past, asks Abe to take in a European refugee, he agrees, unaware that the woman coming to live with him is a volatile and alluring actress named Ana Beidler. Ana regales the Auer family with tales of her lost stardom and charms and mystifies Abe with her glamour and unabashed sexuality, forcing him to confront his own desire as well as the ghost of his dead brother. As news filters out of Europe, American Jews struggle to make sense of the atrocities. Some want to bury their heads in the sand while others want to create a Jewish army that would fight Hitler and promote bold, wide-spread rescue initiatives. And when a popular Manhattan synagogue is burned to the ground, our characters begin to feel the drumbeat of war is marching ever closer to home. Set on the eve of America’s involvement in World War II, The Houseguest examines a little-known aspect of the war and highlights the network of organizations seeking to help Jews abroad, just as masses of people seeking to escape Europe are turned away from American shores. It moves seamlessly from the Yiddish theaters of Second Avenue to the junkyards of Utica to the covert world of political activists, Jewish immigrants, and the stars and discontents of New York’s Yiddish stage. Ultimately, The Houseguest is a moving story about identity, family, and the decisions that define who we will become.
