Named a book of the year by BUSTLE and ELECTRIC LITERATURE “Alby is Holden Caulfield in the Internet age..." --Los Angeles Times Hailed as "indelible" by Entertainment Weekly, a "cringe-inducingly funny" (The Wall Street Journal) gut-punch of a debut about love, grief, and family "unleashes one of the most comically arresting voices this side of Sam Lipsyte's Homeland" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) In Matt Sumell's blazing first book, our hero Alby flails wildly against the world around him—he punches his sister (she deserved it), "unprotectos" broads (they deserved it and liked it), gets drunk and picks fights (all deserved), defends defenseless creatures both large and small, and spews insults at children, slow drivers, old ladies, and every single surviving member of his family. In each of these stories Alby distills the anguish, the terror, the humor, and the strange grace—or lack of—he experiences in the aftermath of his mother's death. Swirling at the center of Alby's rage is a grief so big, so profound, it might swallow him whole. As he drinks, screws, and jokes his way through his pain and heartache, Alby's anger, his kindness, and his capacity for good bubble up when he (and we) least expect it. Sumell delivers "a naked rendering of a heart sorting through its broken pieces to survive.*" Making Nice is a powerful, full-steam-ahead ride that will keep you laughing even as you try to catch your breath; a new classic about love, loss, and the fine line between grappling through grief and fighting for (and with) the only family you've got. *Mark Richard

Alan Haehnel Comedy Characters: 8 female, 4 male, extras, gender and numbers of characters easily manipulated The curtain opens on Cybeline, lost in the dark woods, calling plaintively for rescue as wolves prowl closer and closer All of a sudden, No, no, no! rings out from the back of the theater and a disgruntled, dictatorial director barges down the aisle, furious at the actress, the cast, and the entire crew! She commands, No one leaves the theater until this production is beaten into shape. The abused and beleaguered cast and crew are forced to comply. Enter two representatives from OSHA theatre division OSHAT. The new government agency charges the director with jeopardizing the emotional safety of the cast and crew. Barbara, who had been accustomed to using her venomous tongue at will suddenly has to make nice or have the production shut down. Then problems avalanche: the show's horse looks like a mutated camel; the lead gets a rampant case of the giggles; the understudy doesn't know her lines; disaster follows disaster, and Barbara isn't even allowed to yell. This Vermont One Act Play Contest Winner was a real hit with the judges. The show was a comedic joy from beginning to end. Thank you for sharing a fabulous piece and for giving us another name to add to those tried and true staples, Play On!, Noises Off!

The Pain of Wearing Our Faces is about an art teacher in Manhattan and one of her students, a famous composer, who pledge to entertain each other as they try to remain sober. She goes in search of him when he disappears after confessing that his most famous work was plagiarized from a homeless woman in Woodstock. In the second novella, Grace, teenager Grace Torrance runs away from an abusive father when a Catskill mountain flood destroys their cabin. Without money she hitchhikes to Manhattan where she has no choice but to sleep among the homeless in Freedom Tunnel. When she meets a mysterious young art preparator she discovers her own talent for miniaturist painting and starts to believe in her future, but betrayal confronts her until her ability to make friends intervenes.

Beyond Nice is about creating excellent working relationships in Churches and other Christian organisations. It looks at why Christian bodies struggle with people issues and people management. The author has taken his experience as a practising Christian in the business world and has sought to understand why Christian organisations often find it more difficult to manage people than businesses do. He also explores potential solutions to this problem, and central to this are almost 40 interviews conducted with Christian leaders; bishops, pastors, charity leaders, academics and consultants. He also looks at the example Jesus gives us of how to deal with and lead people. Together, these things are combined to offer potential solutions to current Christian leaders, and some food for thought to Christian followers about how best to support their leaders.

Enlargement poses a number of institutional challenges to the European Union: institutions originally established for six member states need to be adapted to cope with an EU of between 20 and 30 members. This poses questions both about their size, and about the procedures for taking decisions. The eleventh Monitoring European Integration report will evaluate the reforms adopted at the Nice summit and highlight a number of structural and institutional reforms that were ignored for political reasons. It also argues that enlarging an insufficiently reformed EU may provoke crises whose solution might actually lead to a better EU. The authors conclude with an analysis of the emergency measure that should be taken, before enlargement occurs.
