Summary

The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a British children's book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter that follows mischievous and disobedient young Peter Rabbit as he is chased about the garden of Mr. McGregor. He escapes and returns home to his mother, who puts him to bed after dosing him with camomile tea. The tale was written for five-year-old Noel Moore, son of Potter's former governess Annie Carter Moore, in 1893. It was revised and privately printed by Potter in 1901 after several publishers' rejections, but was printed in a trade edition by Frederick Warne & Co. in 1902. The book was a success, and multiple reprints were issued in the years immediately following its debut. It has been translated into 36 languages, and with 45 million copies sold it is one of the best-selling books of all time.

    गरीब और ग्रामीण भारत को जितना अच्छा प्रेमचंद ने अपने शब्दों में व्यक्त किया है, हिंदी जगत में उसका कोई दूसरा उदाहरण मिलना नामुमकीन है. गांव के व्यक्ति की खुशियों और व्यथाओं का प्रेमचंद जितना मार्मिक चित्रण कोई दूसरा भारतीय लेखक कर ही नहीं पाया है. उनकी किताब पूस की रात भी एक गरीब व्यक्ति पर पड़ने वाली मौसम की मार को रेखांकित करता है. किताब में सर्दी का ऐसा अनुपम वर्णन मिलता है कि पाठक को भी ठंड का आभास होता है. सबसे अच्छी बात यह है कि वह किरदार के साथ जुड़ता है और उसके दर्द को महसूस करता है.
    
    As much as Premchand has expressed in his words to poor and rural India, it is impossible to get any other example of this in the Hindi world. The poignant portrayal of Premchand of happiness and misery of the village person has not been made by any other Indian writer. His book underlines the misery of weather falling on a poor person even on winter night. In the book, there is an unimaginable description of winter that the reader also feels cold. The best part is that it connects with the character and feels its pain. 'Poos ke raat' is one of Premchand's most beautiful creations.

    "So done." 
     
    We've all seen the vague posts and tweets. We've all sat, wondering exactly how we should be responding to the oh-so-distressed regular sub tweeters who use social media as personal diaries aimed at making sure inquiring minds want to know. 
     
    But what's the real story behind the hashtags? 
     
    "Grrrr." (I stubbed my toe). 
    "Some people shouldn't use up oxygen." (Filling up balloons). 
    "So done." (With not getting attention). 
     
    A group of sassy authors will set out on a quest to collect vague book posts and sub tweets and unravel the mystery of all that 'please-ask' drama… 
     
    Sub Tweet, A Crazy Ink Anthology, will leave you fugly laughing, horrified, begging for more, and most certainly, never able to look at a vague status the same way again…

    Award-winning author and powerhouse talent Roxane Gay burst onto the scene with An Untamed State and the New York Times bestselling essay collection Bad Feminist (Harper Perennial). Gay returns with Difficult Women, a collection of stories of rare force and beauty, of hardscrabble lives, passionate loves, and quirky and vexed human connection.The women in these stories live lives of privilege and of poverty, are in marriages both loving and haunted by past crimes or emotional blackmail. A pair of sisters, grown now, have been inseparable ever since they were abducted together as children, and must negotiate the elder sister's marriage. A woman married to a twin pretends not to realize when her husband and his brother impersonate each other. A stripper putting herself through college fends off the advances of an overzealous customer. A black engineer moves to Upper Michigan for a job and faces the malign curiosity of her colleagues and the difficulty of leaving her past behind. From a girls’ fight club to a wealthy subdivision in Florida where neighbors conform, compete, and spy on each other, Gay delivers a wry, beautiful, haunting vision of modern America reminiscent of Merritt Tierce, Jamie Quatro, and Miranda July.

    Recollecting school escapades, ridding a house of lust, a practical joke misfiring, dealing with a boy’s swearing, a talking dog, a woman’s take on the Odysseus legend, dogged self-centredness, a suspect solution to the world’s problems, bizarre seductions, an afterlife wish granted, a jinxed lover pursuing his beloved… These are some of the themes of the seventeen humorous short stories in Pursuit involving a variety of comic expressions: situational, satirical, burlesque and even the ridiculous. While the impact of humour in the stories is largely attributable to incongruity, or some departure from the ‘normal’, the stories have more than just entertainment value. They make telling and sometimes poignant observations about the nature of the human condition.

    Steamy first-time threesome tales where groups of friends — two sexy men and one lucky woman — suddenly discovering that they can become much more!
     
    Right off the bat, let's be clear: K.D. West is an excellent writer.It's nice that it's erotica, but even nicer when the person behind the word processor really knows how to create believable characters and situations, and then gets them off—explosively. — K.C. Cave
     
    When do friendship, sex, and love intersect? Stories of friends — one woman and two men — finding a way to take their relationship to a whole new level.
     
    Three of K.D. West's steamiest, most popular tales, collected for the first time:
    Truth & Games: Felicity, Ben, and Aaron have been friends for years. During a rainy-day get-together over margaritas, Felicity challenges her men to a game that will bring things to a whole new level. A tale of friendship, romance, and thinking outside the lines.
    The Visitor: Lea's got a four-alarm fire burning and she knows just who she wants to put it out. Or does she? Lea is in Atlanta for a job interview, and her best friend's brother, Sean the firefighter, is happy to give her a place to sleep. But his is the bed she'd rather sleep in. Or perhaps it's his roommate Andy's? And when a visitor comes to her that night... Well, who is she to be picky if it's one, the other, or...? A tale of sexy firefighters, a mystery lover, and embracing the unknown — literally!
    Over the Top: Danny and Suzie, Luz and Jamie - the four had been planning for over a year on heading up after graduation to the cabin by the lake. Two couples, doing what couples do. But that was before Danny and Suzie decided to be "mature" and break it off. And so now it's one couple. And Danny. And Danny's getting frustrated. A tale of desire, frustration, and a friendly, helping... mouth.
    Bonus! The Trouble with Triplets, Pt. I: Allison has been teasing her lover and former teacher Ken with the idea of a threesome. Ken has another lesson he'd like to impart. (A preview of a story from the Erotic Tales: Letters to Allison series)
    
    
     
    (MMF ménage à trois and MFM three-way sexuality; includes some male bisexuality, bisexual romance. For adult readers only)
    
     
    Extract (from "Truth & Games"):
    When she had fantasized this scene, she had been perfectly in control of her feelings, had treated them to a sultry retreat and a wink. Now however she was so terrified by what she had just said to them that she couldn't open the buttons to her blouse. She stood, fumbling with her own clothes, and cursing.
    A low roll of thunder made the hair on Felicity’s arms stand on end.
    The door opened.
    Aaron came in first, followed by Ben, who seemed to be trying to hide behind his friend, and was failing miserably, because of his height.
    They were both entirely naked.
