So I Hit Him is an extremely powerful memoir that will shock many people, yet is intensely inspirational. Born in a former workhouse hospital in Manchester, England with multiple disabilities and not expected to survive, Michael was placed in care almost from birth. By the time he was 17, he had been placed in over 30 institutions and had suffered every manner of physical, emotional and sexual abuse and neglect. His Asperger’s became the key to his survival in a hostile world, enabling him to endure punishment, deprivation and emotional conflict. His rage and frustration had created a man who used violence to deal with most situations in life. Readers: be prepared to suspend judgment as you read an inspirational story. Michael’s strong will to live and learn enabled him to survive not only his time in care, but also his forced migration, as a child, to Australia, and his later alcohol addiction. It also enabled him to finally succeed in his ultimate goals of getting an education and helping youth in trouble.

This guide for actors and directors develops a valid method for training performers to act from their core--whether they are cold reading, auditioning, or performing for film or television. This book teaches actors how to achieve and respond to believable and honest emotions before the camera, and it maintains that the key to a successful performance lies in how the actors relate to one another and to the circumstances. Exercises, including script examples, throughout the book give readers an easy resource for practicing the principles outlined. The Art of Film Acting applies a classic stage acting method (Stanislavsky) to the more intimate medium of performing before a camera, teaching readers to experience an emotion rather than to indicate it.

Domestic violence in gay male relationships is the third largest health problem for gay men in America today. Men Who Beat the Men Who Love Them breaks the silence surrounding gay male domestic violence and exposes this hidden yet prevalent and destructive problem. The authors paint a vivid picture of gay men’s domestic violence, bringing its brutality to life by including personal narratives, written by one of the authors, by clearly defining what it is and what it is not through lists of violent acts and criminal code categories, and by thoroughly examining and analyzing the criminal, mental health, medical, political, and interpersonal issues involved. The authors boldly depart from the battered women’s literature by asserting that batterers have a diagnosable mental disorder, that battering is not gender based, and that much further criminalization of domestic violence is necessary. Striving for victim advocacy, the book underscores the idea that gay men’s domestic violence is totally unacceptable and is caused solely by individual abusive gay men who choose to batter. The book builds on and departs from what is known about domestic violence, with the authors challenging several fundamental premises in the literature, unabashedly identifying battering as a mental disorder. The authors explain that victims cannot stop their battering partners from battering and virtually all batterers choose to harm their partners in a premeditated fashion. The authors provide practical steps and suggestions for victims who want to leave and stay away from their violent partners and for friends who want to help battered gay men. Chapters describe the scope of the problem and refute myths and misconceptions. There are several detailed theory chapters in which the authors explain why gay men’s domestic violence occurs, who the batterers are, who the victims are at different stages of victimization, and how domestic violence can be stopped. A visionary, wide-ranging governmental and private plan of action is introduced, including lists of necessary laws and policies, as well as outlines of strong education, training, and advertising problems needed in various sectors of society. As a self-help book, Men Who Beat the Men Who Love Them provides practical information on a never-before discussed topic. As a trainer’s manual or teaching guide, it includes specific criteria for understanding the problem and for providing treatment.

A New York Times bestseller: “Brunetti amply displays the keen intelligence and wry humor that has endeared this series to so many.” —Publishers Weekly Commissario Brunetti’s latest assignment is to look into a minor shop-keeping violation committed by the mayor’s future daughter-in-law. Brunetti has no interest in helping his boss amass political favors, but has little choice but to comply. Then Brunetti’s wife comes to him with a request of her own. The sweet, simple-minded man who worked at their dry cleaner has just died of a sleeping pill overdose, and Paola loathes the idea that he lived and died without anyone noticing him, or helping him. Brunetti begins to investigate and is surprised when he finds nothing on the man: no birth certificate, no passport, no driver’s license, no credit cards. As far as the Italian government is concerned, he never existed. Stranger still, the dead man’s mother refuses to speak to the police. And as secrets unravel, Brunetti begins to suspect that an aristocratic family might be somehow connected to the mystery . . . “Leon’s success . . . is testament to the heartening fact that character counts in crime fiction.” —Booklist, starred review

Chicago Tribune editor Bill O'Connell O'Connell explores one of the most heinous but least publicized crimes in Illinois history: the 1968 abduction, sexual assault, and murder of fourteen-year-old David Stukel by fourteen-year-old bullies Billy Rose Sprinkle and James Perruquet. O'Connell-David Stukel's Little League teammate-recalls the victim's idyllic childhood and takes readers into the minds of the murderers and inside the homes, hearts, and photo albums of the victim's family, whose grief is palpable a generation after the crime. His research includes parole interviews, inmate psychological reports and conversations with the families of the murderers and the family of the victim. Fourteen is a masterfully crafted, thoroughly insightful account of the years leading up to, and the four decades since, the unconscionable and unprovoked slaying of an innocent ninety-five-pound high school freshman.

Amidst the fog of San Francisco, a debut author reflects on his brother’s life and suicide in this “painful, intimate, and exquisitely written” memoir (Peter Orner). In San Francisco, the summer fog blows inland off the ocean and the landscape changes from moment to moment. Amidst this ever-changing sea of fog, thirty year old Kyle Boelte struggles to remember his brother Kris, who committed suicide in their family’s Denver home when Boelte was just thirteen. In a dual narrative that weaves together climate and personal history, Boelte explores letters, notes, newspaper articles, and his own memory to tell the story of his brother’s short life while also investigating the science behind San Francisco’s omnipresent fog. Boelte’s search takes him from San Francisco Bay circa 1901, when the fog was responsible for routinely sinking steamships, to a cavernous medical library where he studies the grim details of asphyxiation and death by hanging; from the redwood forests where scientists are now learning about the fog’s ability to sustain life, to a beat-up cardboard box containing memories of his long-dead brother. The Beautiful Unseen is a “slim book of startling prose” that “slips between past and present, inner life and outer, seamlessly and beautifully” to tell a story of loss at an early age, the impermanence of memory, the science of fog, and the history of San Francisco (Darin Strauss).

From the New York Times–bestselling author: The shocking true story of the murders at ABC News journalist Sam Donaldson’s New Mexico ranch. ABC News journalist Sam Donaldson needed a new manager for his sprawling New Mexico ranch. He found the perfect hire in Paul Posey, who quickly settled into his new life with his family in tow. Then, in July 2004, Donaldson was stunned to discover that his ranch had become a blood-soaked crime scene. The bullet-riddled bodies of Paul, his wife, and stepdaughter were found buried in a pile of manure. Paul’s fourteen-year-old son, Cody, was soon in custody. But the shocking revelations had only just begun . . . The Poseys appeared to be an ordinary American family. But was their seeming normalcy a carefully constructed veneer? Cody claimed he had suffered years of relentless physical and psychological abuse at the hands of his father, stepmother, and stepsister. Witnesses at the trial included Sam Donaldson, as well as neighbors who supported Cody’s claims—and others who disputed them. Was Cody a cold-blooded killer? Or was he acting in self-defense? It would be up to a jury to separate the lies from the truth, and decide the fate of a teenager . . .
