    “Devilishly sharp… a masterful balance of psychological excavation and sumptuous description.”
    —Kirkus Reviews
    
    An only child, Deborah Burns grew up in prim 1950s America in the shadow of her beautiful, unconventional, rule-breaking mother, Dorothy—a red-haired beauty who looked like Rita Hayworth and skirted norms with a style and flare that made her the darling of men and women alike. Married to the son of a renowned Italian family with ties to the underworld, Dorothy fervently eschewed motherhood and domesticity, turning Deborah over to her spinster aunts to raise while she was the star of a vibrant social life. As a child, Deborah revered her charismatic mother, but Dorothy was a woman full of secrets with a troubled past—a mistress of illusion whose love seemed just out of her daughter’s grasp. 
    
    In vivid, lyrical prose, Saturday’s Child tells the story of Deborah’s eccentric upbringing and her quest in midlife, long after her parents’ death, to uncover the truth about her mother and their complex relationship. No longer under the spell of her maternal goddess, but still caught in a wrenching cycle of love and longing, Deborah must finally confront the reality of her mother’s legacy—and finally claim her own.

    The six Mitford girls were blessed with beauty, wit and talent, yet they led very distinct, cultural lives and not one sister, except for Diana and Unity, shared the same opinion or ideology. Nancy Mitford was the ultimate tease and her talent for mockery reformed the publishing industry in the 1930s and ‘40s. Indeed, the Mitford girls’ popularity provoked Jessica to label it ‘The Mitford Industry’. As individuals they exploited their attributes to the best of their abilities, and through difficult times they used laughter as their remedy. Their life experiences, although sometimes maddening, are a lesson to us all. How would the Mitford girls cope with the pressures and turmoil of modern life? Whether it is Pamela’s guide to throwing a jubilee party, Nancy's guide to fashion or Diana’s tips on how to stay young, this quirky and fact-filled book draws on rare and unpublished interviews and information to answer that question.

    Do you remember trying to solve the Rubik’s cube whilst dressed in your He-Man picture pyjamas? 
    Did you try to make ‘cool’ sound effects with your mouth like Jones from Police Academy? 
    Or maybe you swooned over Scott and Charlene’s (aka Jason and Kylie’s) wedding of the year? 
    If that sounds like you, there’s no mistaking you were a child of the eighties. 
    Rev up your DeLorean, switch on the Flux Capacitor and take a cruise back through the decade that made you the person you are today. This amusing and entertaining collection of reminiscences will jog the memories of all who grew up in the same decade where greed was good, mullets were cool and white dog poo littered the streets.

    The internet and online communications, including social media, have had a marked impact on how businesses in both business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) environments engage with their audiences. Paid advertising efforts have, for some companies, taken a back seat to marketing in ways that leverage online communication to influence their audiences – driving people to their websites where they may engage with the brand and, ultimately, make a purchase decision."Influencer marketing" has become a big buzzword in this new environment. It's a term that refers to leveraging the influence of key people and businesses to support your brand and spread the word about your products and services through their own social channels.Influencer marketing means different things to different people and is approached in a variety of ways. In this book, digital marketing experts share their definitions, best practices and case examples to help you determine whether this form of marketing would work for you and, if so, how to make it happen!

    “Nabokovian in his caustic charm and sexy intelligence, Simic perceives the mythic in the mundane and pinpoints the perpetual suffering that infuses human life with both agony and bliss. . . . And he is the master of juxtaposition, lining up the unlikeliest of pairings and contrasts as he explores the nexuses of madness and prophecy, hell and paradise, lust and death.”—Donna Seaman, Booklist 
    "As one reads the pithy, wise, occasionally cranky epigrams and vignettes that fill this volume, there is the definite sense that we are getting a rare glimpse into several decades worth of private journals--and, by extension are privy to the tickings of an accomplished and introspective literary mind."—Rain Taxi 
    Written over many years, this book is a collection of notebook entries by our current Poet Laureate. 
    Excerpts: 
    Stupidity is the secret spice historians have difficulty identifying in this soup we keep slurping. 
    Ars poetica: trying to make your jailers laugh. 
    American identity is really about having many identities simultaneously. We came to America to escape our old identities, which the multiculturalists now wish to restore to us. 
    Ambiguity is the world’s condition. Poetry flirts with ambiguity. As a “picture of reality” it is truer than any other. This doesn’t mean that you’re supposed to write poems no one understands. 
    The twelve girls in the gospel choir sang as if dogs were biting their asses. 
    What an outrage! This very moment gone forever!

    A delightful history of how Christmas has been celebrated in Britain over the past 2,000 years. From the legend of Arthur pulling the sword from the stone one Christmas day, to when the Puritan Parliament tried to 'ban' Christmas, through to Charles Dickens's vivid recollections of his boyhood celebrations, and his delight in the present of a jumping frog. Amongst the wealth of stories and personal reminiscences this book also teaches us how the traditions we now hold so dear came into being, including Mrs Beeton's recipe for the original Christmas cake (made with a horn of mead), the birth of Christmas carolling, the first ever Christmas tree to be brought to England from Germany by Prince Albert and the origins of the Christmas cracker. This is simply the perfect book with which to celebrate Christmas and all the traditions that surround it.
