Longing for Something Bigger From the Eisner Award-nominated Inio Asano, creator of Solanin and Nijigahara Holograph, comes one of his most challenging works yet; an intense teen romance set in what may at first glance be one of the sleepiest places in Japan. When Koume and Keisuke*s relationship begins to take shape, it is apparent that they are both searching for something. Maybe Keisuke wants something more than a kiss from the fair Koume. Maybe Koume is looking for someone better than Misaki, the local playboy. But what they find in each other over the course of a summer might be far greater than anything they were expecting. Their lives are going to change. And this will all transpire before high school exams!

'This enjoyable novel captures "communal living". Everyday difficulties experienced by residents due to their age and health are more meaningful to the reader than a diagnostic inventory would be.' - Dementia: The International Journal of Social Research and Practice 'Uniquely for our library, a work of fiction focusing on older people who need care. This book tells the story of a young girl who begins work as a care worker in a residential home for older people many of whom have dementia. Aimed at teenagers and care workers of all ages, it creatively explores the problems of dementia.' - Ageing Matters When Gemma gets the job as a support worker at The Beacon, a residential unit with a difference, little does she realize how much impact she is to have on the lives of its residents and how they, in turn, will shape her own. Dividing her time between sailing in her boat Periwinkle, a parting gift from her boyfriend Adam, and her work at The Beacon, Gemma gets to know all the residents and their stories. But as winter arrives a dramatic storm and uncertainty over the future of the home threaten to disrupt the peace - can The Beacon survive? Showing how a caring community can be much more than a place where people wait to die, The Girl on the Shore is not just an absorbing tale - it's a `must read' for teenagers, adults of all ages, carers and all those with an older person in their life.

A young girl and her family come of age in this tender and suspenseful internationally acclaimed debut novel. In this bestselling debut novel “that captures perfectly the hopes and hurts of childhood,” twelve-year-old May lives in a struggling oceanfront bed-and-breakfast run by her loving if distracted single mother, Lucy, who strives to care for her children without forfeiting her own fun and passion (The New York Times). May puts her faith in the things that elude her—an absent father, the London city life left behind, the acceptance of the popular girls who have boyfriends, off-the-rack clothes, and matronly mothers who provide more than tea and toast at mealtimes—and wonders if her life will ever change. When a kindly writer and his stylish editor come to lodge in the weeks before Christmas, opportunities are in the air. But then May’s playboy father, estranged from the family for years, drops in, threatening to upend the delicate new possibilities stirring in all their lives. “Quiet, sophisticated, and sleek,” By the Shore is a crystalline capturing of a modern romance and that fragile, bittersweet world of youth on the cusp of adulthood (Vogue). First-time author and actor “[Craze] gives May a delicate, distinctive voice. . . . [Here] the trials of adolescence dont stand a chance against the absurdity of grown-ups” (Kirkus Reviews). “Remarkable and moving.” —Publishers Weekly

In a thrilling collection of nonfiction adventure stories, James A. Michener returns to the most dazzling place on Earth: the islands that inspired Tales of the South Pacific. Co-written with A. Grove Day, Rascals in Paradise offers portraits of ten scandalous men and women, some infamous and some overlooked, including Sam Comstock, a mutinous sailor whose delusions of grandeur became a nightmare; Will Mariner, a golden-haired youth who used his charm to win over his captors; and William Bligh, the notorious HMS Bounty captain who may not have been the monster history remembers him as. From lifelong buccaneers to lapsed noblemen, in Michener and Day’s capable hands these rogues become the stuff of legend. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for Rascals in Paradise “The best book about those far-scattered islands that has appeared in a long time . . . a portfolio of rare and ruthless personalities that is calculated to make the curliest hair stand straight on end.”—The New York Times “[Combines] research and scholarship (A. Grove Day was a professor at the University of Hawaii) with a gift for spinning a yarn and depicting character (Michener, journalist and novelist, needs no introduction).”—Kirkus Reviews

The poems in ""Songs of The Glens of Antrim"" by Moire O'Neill, were, in her own words, written 'by a Glens woman in the dialect of the Glens, and chiefly for the pleasure of other Glens-people'. They conjure up a world now gone and also places that have remained, and are now enriched by the memories of by-gone people and times.

A provocative and thoroughly researched inquiry into what we find beautiful and why, skewering the myth that the pursuit of beauty is a learned behavior. In Survival of the Prettiest, Nancy Etcoff, a faculty member at Harvard Medical School and a practicing psychologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, argues that beauty is neither a cultural construction, an invention of the fashion industry, nor a backlash against feminism—it’s in our biology. Beauty, she explains, is an essential and ineradicable part of human nature that is revered and ferociously pursued in nearly every civilization—and for good reason. Those features to which we are most attracted are often signals of fertility and fecundity. When seen in the context of a Darwinian struggle for survival, our sometimes extreme attempts to attain beauty—both to become beautiful ourselves and to acquire an attractive partner—suddenly become much more understandable. Moreover, if we understand how the desire for beauty is innate, then we can begin to work in our own interests, and not just the interests of our genetic tendencies.

Japanese nõ theatre or the drama of 'perfected art' flourished in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries largely through the genius of the dramatist Zeami. An intricate fusion of music, dance, mask, costume and language, the dramas address many subjects, but the idea of 'form' is more central than 'meaning' and their structure is always ritualized. Selected for their literary merit, the twenty-four plays in this volume dramatize such ideas as the relationship between men and the gods, brother and sister, parent and child, lover and beloved, and the power of greed and desire. Revered in Japan as a cultural treasure, the spiritual and sensuous beauty of these works has been a profound influence for English-speaking artists including W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound and Benjamin Britten.
