Count on Maggie Muff and Big Sally-Ann, Belfast's ultimate tarts with hearts, to put a smile on your face.
 

 
 
It’s Big Sally-Ann’s birthday and, not content with the tent that Maggie bought her to go dogging with Big Igor up Black Mountain, she’s determined to learn the last dance from Dirty Dancing to perform in the Shebeen on the Shankill Road on her birthday night. But, of course, things don’t run smoothly and the best friends get up to all kinds of shenanigans, including a missing boyfriend, fake passports, front wedgies and an unforgettable Zumba class.
 

 
 
Laugh-out-loud from start to finish, this is an unmissable treat for anyone who loves a good dose . . . of Belfast humour.

    Darkly humorous short fiction set in the early years of the Soviet Union, by the author of The Master and Margarita.   A collection of comic, self-aware, and stylistically dazzling short stories touching on such familiar territory for many Russian authors as disease, famine, civil war, and political turmoil, Notes on a Cuff and Other Stories showcases the style that Mikhail Bulgakov would be known for during the literary and theatrical renaissance of 1920s Moscow and beyond.   Written between 1920 and 1921 while Bulgakov was employed as a doctor in a rural hospital in the Caucasus region, Notes on a Cuff presents a series of first-person comedic sketches centered on a young writer (Bulgakov’s semiautobiographical proxy) fighting to launch his literary career despite great personal and political odds.   “A very good place to start on Bulgakov if you haven’t read any of his work before.”—The Guardian

    Meet Karl Floor: friendless, motherless, put-upon, living with his loudmouth stepfather and pretending to take satisfaction from teaching high school math. Karl returns home one day to discover his apartment being robbed by a beautiful woman named Sylvia. 
    So begins a strange and mostly inadvertant saga: Karl, now in love with this unexpected woman, finds himself introduced to her friends and family, making promises to her, defending her honor (which she definitely has) against assailants (which she only might have). Sylvia is devastatingly attractive, and caught up in a situation that Karl, bless his heart, does his best to understand. As he gets pulled further into her life, and begged to solve her problems, Karl also begins to see his own limitations. 
    Confronting his confusing paternal situation, his issues with class and responsibility, Karl emerges as an ingeniously funny, memorable, and heartwarming anti-hero. 
    Matthew Sharpe addresses his heady themes with warmth and charisma. You Were Wrong is a lovingly satiric, intelligent, and deeply enjoyable novel with a voice all its own.

    Live Through the Hardships: Life is complicated and messy, but every now and then life gives you a syndicated talk show on a major network—and then fires you for being "all icing and no cake."  Then it sends your born-again Christian sister to take you out to lunch on your birthday, only to tell you she suddenly believes you can pray the gay away and that you should've used your time on the show you were just fired from to do more for Christ.  Then, because there's always another "then," you receive a tax bill from Uncle Sam that almost sends you out your tenth floor bathroom window . . . literally.  Luckily, AJ Gibson chose to step back from that open window and share his struggles, rather than succumb to them, because, well . . . not today Satan!  He knows what it's like when life feels like a never-ending roller coaster, and in his self-help book Flipping the Script, he doesn't sugar coat the truth.  After all, this isn't Hollywood, errr . . . anymore.Know You're Not Alone: AJ's journey from a closeted gay boy from Ohio to that guy people kinda, sorta recognize from TV and Hollywood's biggest red carpets seems glossy, but the truth is anything but. In Flipping the Script, AJ shows how his life has been a series of personal roadblocks and rock bottom moments.  Every time he thinks he's in the clear, he finds a new way to crash and burn.  Let's just say insecurity was once a pretty close friend of his, so he knows what you feel like whenever you find yourself scrolling social media comparing yourself to others.  Really, he does.  Luckily, he's a pretty smart guy and moderately witty, always finding his way out of life's rock bottom moments-and you can too!Turn Bad Situations Around: AJ has a gift for shifting his perspective, turning crappy situations around and finding a way to persevere each time the world seems to be telling him he was born to fail. Through all of the mess, all of the hardships, he somehow manages to keep a smile on his face and a roof over his head-even if he really has to stretch his dollar to do it. He also knows that we all have problems that we have to work through, and he's here to help. The true stories in Flipping the Script will make you laugh, encourage you to keep fighting for happiness and inspire you to turn your own rock bottom moments into your proudest accomplishments!Feel Empowered: AJ's "Hollywood" situation may be unique, but his struggles are definitely relatable. After all, you'd be hard-pressed to find a person who has achieved success without problems—especially in the LGBTQ community.  As a proud gay man working in the entertainment capital of the world, AJ's personal and professional stories will leave you feeling empowered and a little less defeated. Flipping the Script will give you the strength to overcome your own personal roadblocks and live the life you were created to live. In his book, AJ shares tips and tricks in the form of "Script Rewrites" at the end of each chapter that will help you persevere and find your true purpose.  He'll show you how to shift your perspective to find the beauty in not only life's high points, but more importantly, in life's rock bottom moments.Flipping the Script will rip your heart out, make you want to fight somebody, and leave you feeling like you can solve world hunger—all in a single chapter.  After listening to this self-help book, you will: feel deeply connected, knowing you're not alone in your struggles; have simple, real world tools to help you bounce back and live the life you were created to live; and see yourself as the wonderful, creative, capable human being that you have always been—but perhaps forgot somewhere along the way.
