I went out to the garage, and there I found him with the motor still running, fumes galore, and his dead body at the wheel. I immediately opened the garage door and looked into his face. My response was, He's at peace. He's whole. There is no more war going on in his mind. He looked so peaceful. It just stood to remind me of how much restraint he must have used as he was here on this earth. Christina Brady and her family understand the stressful and oftentimes heartbreaking effects of having a family member who suffers from bipolar disorder. Christina was married for almost thirty years before the unexpected death of her husband, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the last seven years of their marriage.

Christina invites you to walk along with her on her heart-wrenching road through life as she battles her husband's daily mood swings and instability that affected their finances, friends, and family relationships. She ends her pilgrimage with encouragement to those who walk these difficult and lonely roads of their own.

On April 21, 1701, Yazama Jiutarô, a young Japanese samurai is devastated when he and his fellow warriors are informed of the ritual suicide of their master in punishment for a severe offence. The warriors are now ronin—masterless and on the run—but they vow vengeance on the court official whom they blame, promising to return in force at the New Year, December 31, 1702. They know that their revenge, no matter how justified, will only lead to their own deaths by the same ritual suicide. The band separates and scatters and Jiutarô heads south. As he crosses the sea from the main island of Honshu to that of Kyushu, his boat is hit by a tempest. When the storm abates, he finds himself in a world populated by races and species of peoples familiar, strange, and terrifying. Believing himself to be in one of the hells he has heard of in myths, theater, and stories, he knows he has to find a way back to the home he is far away from.

When George Alagiah was dropped off at a Hampshire boarding school as a child back in 1967 he was confronted with an extreme version of the private struggle faced by all immigrants - the battle to leave the past behind and fit into a new culture. His arrival in Britain coincided with the unhappy intrusion of race into politics. A key part of the ensuing fight against racism was the concept of multiculturalism. But in a closely argued and forthright chapter, Alagiah suggests that, far from improving the prospects for some immigrants, multiculturalism may be an impediment to integration. All too often these are the poor and isolated communities who most need the help of the state to break out of what is fast becoming a version of ghetto life. Above all, this book is a tender and evocative portrayal of the immigrant experience. Alagiah brings colour and life to a subject that is too often reduced to screaming tabloid headlines, and sheds light on the controversial question of British identity.
