Why write in the first place, other than your grocery list? Eric Nicol believes it’s the second-most satisfying thing you can do lying down. But it’s not enough to want to write. You must need to write. Now, after more than seventy years of scribbling – he wrote for the school newspaper at Lord Byng High School in Vancouver, British Columbia – Eric holds forth on dangling participles, punctuation, and literary jargon. What’s more, he answers the burning question: "How much should creative writers depend on editors to correct their grammar?" Then Eric provides a wide selection of essays to demonstrate how it’s done. These include a dramatic demonstration of the chutzpah of a big Tom wild turkey and its harem on a B.C. Gulf Island, the discovery that Eric’s one-way-view window in the bathroom has been installed incorrectly, the trials and tribulations of computers and the creative process, and a riposte to the query, "Are nipples really necessary on guys?" Pure Nicol. Minted in Canada. Priceless!

West Texas is a white hot cauldron boiling over with a lust for money and power. Trapped in the flames of passion searing the Permian Basin, KPER television news reporters Erin McCartney and Sean Ryan battle to survive while exposing the drug smuggling, political corruption and sinful scandals rocking the city of Midessa, Texas. They are caught in a deadly crossfire between the crime and the corruption and their news director Scott Sangsue who demands total obedience and unquestioning loyalty. Just how far will the men and women of KPER-TV go to save their jobs and satisfy Sangsue’s hunger to be number one? How much are they willing to sacrifice—their lives, their morals, their principles? When rookie television journalist Sean Ryan enters KPER-TV, he is swallowed by the cut-throat competition of television news. Suddenly, everything he knows and believes is being challenged by a world turned upside down. Will he succumb to the sexual temptations of Amer Chienne and Celeste? Will he be killed by the criminals or the cops in their drug war? Will he abandon his journalistic principles to save his job? In the end is he any better than Sangsue?

Edward Albee, perhaps best known for his acclaimed and infamous 1960s drama Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, is one of America's greatest living playwrights. Now in his seventies, he is still writing challenging, award-winning dramas. This collection of essays on Albee, which includes contributions from the leading commentators on Albee's work, brings fresh critical insights to bear by exploring the full scope of the playwright's career, from his 1959 breakthrough with The Zoo Story to his recent Broadway success, The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? (2002). The contributors include scholars of both theatre and English literature, and the essays thus consider the plays both as literary texts and as performed drama. The collection considers a number of Albee's lesser-known and neglected works, provides a comprehensive introduction and overview, and includes an exclusive, original interview with Mr Albee, on topics spanning his whole career.

Prince Kristian, second in line to the throne of the Kingdom of Medina, maintains rigid order in every area of his life, including his work as a chef and restaurateur.

So when she asks him to be her first, he says no…and then realizes he hates the thought of her sleeping with another man. But just as things finally heat up between them, Kristian’s meddling family and Dallas’s old insecurities interfere. Can he convince Dallas to give him another chance, or will these friends turned lovers lose everything? Categories and Keywords: Royalty, IR/MC, BBW, Friends to Lovers

Laughter and power are here examined in a variety of contexts, ranging from the satires of Renaissance Humanism through to the polemics of contemporary journalism. How do the powerful use laughter as a cultural weapon which reinforces their position? How do the powerless use laughter as a last resort in their self-defence? Sixteenth-century intellectuals applied their satires to a campaign against intolerance. Seventeenth-century absolutism demanded of comedy that it serve its interests. Yet subversive humour survived, even at the court, and led through the Enlightenment to its apogee in the black humour of Sade. Twentieth-century experimental fiction owes that trend a conscious debt. Meanwhile an aesthetic tradition, represented here by Flaubert, Beckett and Queneau, incites a laughter which releases tension rather than raising awareness. As humour theorists, Bergson, Freud and Koestler help focus these concerns.

Constantly surprising, these personal essays explore the attractions and dangers of intimacy and the violence that often arises in close relationships. Deulen’s artful storytelling and dialogue also draw the reader into complicated questions about class, race, and gender. In “Aperture,” she considers how she has contributed to her autistic brother’s isolation from family and from the world. “Theft” investigates her mother’s romantic stories about conquistadors in the context of the Mexican heritage of her biracial family. Throughout the collection Deulen experiments formally, alternating traditional narrative with “still life” essays and collages that characterize a particular time, place, and sensibility. Deulen is remarkable in her ability to present her own confusion and culpability, and she also writes with compassion for others, such as her own suicidal and unpredictable father or a boy in her class who sets the teacher’s hair on fire. In part because she herself so poorly fits the identities she might be assigned—white in appearance, she is in fact half Latina; raised in a poor neighborhood, she has acquired an education associated with the middle class—Deulen sees “otherness” as a useless category and the enemy of intimacy, which she embraces despite its risks. The Riotsseeks to create what Frost called “a momentary stay against confusion,” and Deulen investigates her own act of creation even as she uses the craft of writing to put parentheses around the chaos of continuous living.
