Accidents like Love and Marriage is an unexpected romp through the universal dilemmas of love and marriage. It is a compelling tale of incompatible relationships and their astonishing success rates. The Sachdevs, Menons and Singhs are urban Indians, normal folk with everyday concerns, instantly recognizable, in fact, just a little bit like youji and me. But when a foppish Delhiwalla falls for a lovely, smart Keralite and his brother finds romance abroad, passion and comedy take control of their destinies. Why are any of these couples married to each other? Why are the unmarried wanting to marry each other? And why are some of them friends? For wouldn't you have thought that friends, at the very least, had to be vaguely compatible, even if husbands and wives weren't? This hilarious tale of incompatibilities explores why we do the things we do or, indeed, why we let them happen to us. Jaishree Misra's second novel.

What if you had everything in the world you wanted...except the man you'd left behind? Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he's been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy-and that secret's name is Lucas. When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he's on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew. But Lucas isn't the same man he was eight years ago. One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven's ultimate playboy, a reputation he's honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he's brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene. Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he's carefully constructed, but it's the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him. Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or was a little bit like love.

Maybe you’re a part of the great majority of people in the world who don’t go to church. Or maybe you used to go to church and you don’t go anymore. You may even be the person who is going to church and walking away every time feeling worse than when you came, or wondering what the point was. But what if your idea of church is flawed? What if the thing you’re staying away from, the thing you decided to leave, or any collection of bad experiences is actually a false impression of what Jesus and his church are really all about? And what if you realized that although Jesus started this thing called the church and is in charge of it, Jesus never actually said that you are supposed to go to church? Jesus never said to go to church. But he did say that he would build his church, and he did say that his followers would be his church. That’s right: Jesus invites you to follow him and to never go to church again. So if you’re open to giving church another chance or seeing it for what Jesus always intended for it to be, then prepare to discover within these pages what you may have been missing—but looking for—all along.

In exchange for her brother’s release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.

After twenty years of marriage, Ben ups and leaves his wife Rose, their children and their family home in Dublin. Just like that: no words of regret, no compromise, no note - only a simple 'I don't love you anymore'. It has taken Rose all this time to get her life together again: she's brought up her three children, Lisa, Brian and Damien single-handedly, and not without difficulty for never again does she want to be completely broke, or to have to revisit that night in hospital with Damien hovering between life and death. To think about it just makes her shudder. Now Rose is concentrating on her business, the 'Bonne Bouche' bakery, and all the clients she's won, all the friends she's made. Her accounts are in order, the business is blooming. Life really doesn't seem too bad. Until Ben returns, again without warning, and it is soon clear that he expects to infiltrate Rose's carefully created world in the most unwelcome of ways. A stunning sequel to In the Beginning, Catherine Dunne's first novel, Something Like Love is an astonishing portrait of a marriage, and of how the ties that bind are sometimes there forever.

Sweet Dreams

It's a little bit like love, a little bit like God. I remember in 1982, when I was doing the classic, “I'll never change, I'll always be me,” and this friend of mine said, “Everyone will treat you differently.

David Bowie. Culture Club. Wham!. Soft Cell. Duran Duran. Sade. Adam Ant. Spandau Ballet. The Eurythmics. 'Excellent' Guardian 'Hugely enjoyable' Irish Times 'Dazzling' LRB 'Fascinating' New Statesman 'An absolute must-read' GQ One of the most creative entrepreneurial periods since the Sixties, the era of the New Romantics grew out of the remnants of post-punk and developed quickly alongside club culture, ska, electronica, and goth. The scene had a huge influence on the growth of print and broadcast media, and was arguably one of the most bohemian environments of the late twentieth century. Not only did it visually define the decade, it was the catalyst for the Second British Invasion, when the US charts would be colonised by British pop music - making it one of the most powerful cultural exports since the Beatles. In Sweet Dreams, Dylan Jones charts the rise of the New Romantics through testimony from the people who lived it. For a while, Sweet Dreams were made of this.
