    When Sean Mallen finally landed his dream job, it fell on him like a ton of bricks.Not unlike the plaster in his crappy, overpriced London flat.  
     
    
    The veteran journalist was ecstatic when he unexpectedly got the chance he’d
    always craved: to be a London-based foreign correspondent. It meant living in a
    great city and covering great events, starting with the Royal Wedding of William
    and Kate. Except: his tearful wife and six-year-old daughter hated the idea of
    uprooting their lives and moving to another country.  
     
    
    Falling for London is the hilarious and touching story of how he convinced
    them to go, how they learned to live in and love that wondrous but challenging
    city, and how his dream came true in ways he could have never expected.

    A pair of memoirs about a woman starting her life over as a beekeeper in the Ozarks, from “a latter-day Henry Thoreau with a sense of the absurd” (Chicago Tribune).   Taken together, the “steadily eloquent” national bestseller, A Country Year, and its follow-up, A Book of Bees, a New York Times Notable Book, offer a moving and fascinating chronicle of Sue Hubbell’s seasonal second life as a commercial beekeeper (The Washington Post).   Alone on a small Missouri farm after the end of a thirty-year marriage, Hubbell found a new love—of the winged, buzzing variety. Left with little but the commercial beekeeping and honey-producing business she started with her husband, Hubbell found solace in the natural world, as well as in writing about her experience. In evocative vignettes, she takes readers through the seasonal cycle of her life as a beekeeper, offering exquisitely rendered details of hives, harvests, and honey, while also reflecting on deeper questions. As the New York Times wrote: “The real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life.”

    This book introduces the concept of chetana and explains the link between meditation and God. This concept is not specific for any religion. Any person who shows enthusiasm to navigate the unending can practice it. The description of the authors own experiences will make the novel concept reach the people easily. This book teaches one how to look into ones self and have a greater understanding of ones own position before and during the meditation. At the end, readers realize that this kind of meditation is not about learning any techniques, methods, or making stressful efforts to train mind for stillness; but this is rather a simple and peaceful journey. 
    Become an Antarmukh, and feel the difference.

    Two seminal figures of the Beat movement, Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs, discuss literary influences and personal history in a never-before-published three-day conversation following the release of the David Cronenberg film adaptation of Burroughs’ revolutionary novel Naked Lunch. The visit coincided with the shamanic exorcism of the demon that Burroughs believed had caused him to fatally shoot his common law wife, Joan Vollmer Burroughs, in 1951—the event that Burroughs believed had driven his work as a writer. The conversation is interspersed with 17 photographs taken by Ginsberg revealing Burroughs’s daily activities from his painting studio to the shooting range. DON'T HIDE THE MADNESS presents and important, hitherto unpublished primary document of the Beat Generation.
