Isabel Samaras's quirky, sexy, pop-surrealist art has had a cult following for years and now at long last her first monograph, On Tender Hooks, is here. Drawing her influence from classic TV shows and paintings by the Old Masters—for example riffing on Gricault's Raft of the Medusa by replacing the figures with characters from Gilligan's Island—Samaras has created a witty, erotic, and surreal body of work. This fresh and dazzling volume includes a three-way interview between Samaras and fellow low-brow artists Shag and The Pizz, as well as delightful and enlightening commentary from gallerist Justin Giarla and art writer Colin Berry, and an erotic short story by Lucy Blue.

Quickly. But who wants to marry poor, plain, die-vorced Jonkers? As Butterfly schemes her way through shaadis, GTs (oho baba, Get Togethers!), and kitty parties trying to find a suitable girl from the right bagground, she discovers to her dismay that her hapless cousin has his own ideas about his perfect mate. And secretly she may even agree! Full of wit and wickedness, Tender Hooks is another delightful romp through Pakistani high society from the bestselling author of The Diary of a Social Butterfly.

This comprehensive dictionary of common misusages lays bare the mistakes we all make every day.

As Serena sat at her desk, she placed her mug of black coffee on the cup holder. Without coffee, Serena was no good to anybody. She had always needed the caffeine kick in the morning. Looking through the appointment book, she noticed that she had a full day ahead of her, and through this, she gave a big sigh. If only something exciting would happen to her as it did in the novels. Then she realised that they were make believe and not real. Switching on the computer and just double-checking that all was in order on her desk, she got up to go to the toilet before she started her day. As she entered the staff toilets, she was greeted by her friend Abbie, who had been working there roughly the same time as Serena, and they had become good friends. Looking good, Serena! Had a good weekend? asked Abbie in a welcoming voice. Just the normal, went to hairdressers, had a colour and cut, saw my mom, and just lounged about. Really nothing out the norm, she said sounded disappointed. How about you? she asked. Nothing with me really. Just found out that my sister is expecting her first, so quite thrilled with that and you know still looking for a man, she said, smiling and laughing at the same time. Serena went into the cubicle, and, once she had finished, she went to wash her hands. Abbie had left the toilets and returned to her desk, leaving Serena all by herself. As she looked at herself, she noticed that she was looking quite presentable for a Monday morning in her grey trouser suit and black heels. Her dark brown hair was loose and fell on to her shoulders. She applied a little bit more gloss to her lips; she did not like wearing make-up as she liked her skin to breathe, and this was the best it got. Not bad, she said to herself. She left the toilets once she had washed her hands and made her way back to the office, thinking of the work load that was waiting for her that day.

Peter Held and Heather Sealy Lineberry present photographs of the museum's objects alongside essays by distinguished scholars to illuminate historical and contemporary trends. Sidebars and essays by writers in the craft field offer a broad overview of the future of contemporary craft.

Return of the Light Prince Dear reader This novel contains some of the most profound and provocative ideas about a subject that many of us have already formed an opinion on. This in itself is the reason why this novel was kept by me for some time in an unpublished state and yet I remained unsure what to do, or the next step to take. I’d like to quickly explain the quandary I am experiencing but to understand you need to keep asking why, and never stop. Some questions of a factual nature could be ~ Why does the planet Earth travel on an orbital path at about eighteen and a half miles per second, or why does Mercury complete an orbit around our Sun in eighty eight days? Yes, it is true the answer to these questions above can partly be found in physics but this is clearly a statement of the obvious without any explanation as to why. However the most immediate responses can be found from those, whose mindset sits mainly, in one of three camps. That is the acceptance of creationism, evolutionary theory or a growing body of pragmatists who believe in their mind of doubts that there maybe another equally more plausible answer. Writing this book was not easy. The harder part though is breaking through the mindset of hundreds of years of work and research, including the special work completed by the naturalist Darwin. There is no shortage of support for a range of advocates of religious history and equally for the continuing and developing theory of evolution and herein lies the problem. This book does raise and explain another equally plausible reason. We will all go home tonight to the rest of our lives. But consider this, have you ever had an experience so confronting in nature, so rich in ideas that you have felt compelled to stop and listen and be measured by its effect. This for me has been the most exciting life experience of my time. The real impact of this work will break through via the medium of moving images rather than just the mere words in the book I have written. The reasons for this are the obvious ones. The mass audience this work lends itself to, will rationalize more on what they have seen given that most of us have a depth of interests that try to keep up with issues on a day to day basis. I hope you enjoy reading this work as much as I had the enjoyment in writing it. Howard Dimond Author

A fictional psychological epic, based on real life recollections, historical events, the supernatural and the stories of an abandoned baby girl and her journey into romance and betrayal; this is both her story of courage and also that of escaped British prisoners in an overrun village, a journey in which mental illness, the supernatural and madness vie with the human spirit. It is a story of brutality and hope in times of war, as the British are defeated and where Spirits of the Forest are feared… This is a time and place tormented by supernatural beliefs. Religion and superstition, madness and evil, love and desire, how do such manifestations of the human mind develop and live side by side - merging in both conflict and harmony? As a typhoon calms, two British sailors, shipwrecked off the Malay Peninsula, are captured by invading forces; one, by the name of Williams, has already seen his close friend murdered by fellow sailors at sea as madness overcame them…
