    So what did Scots have to smile about this year? When they watched Britain voting for Brexit, when they heard the constant arguments about independence, and when they saw a strangely coiffed son of a Scotswoman become President of the United States, they turned to their usual survival technique – they laughed. 
    When they saw Rangers stumble on their road back to the top, a Scot, Andy Murray, becoming a top world sportsman, and a Scottish horse winning the Grand National, they naturally made a joke or two. And in their quieter moments they recalled the patter of street traders, how they still cannot fathom the opposite sex, and why we all go mad at the first sign of sunshine. 
    All these and more made up The Herald’s funniest stories of the year, published every day in the newspaper’s ‘Diary’ column. And now the very best have been gathered here for you to enjoy all over again.

    "Andrews is at her best in this thoroughly satisfying story with the right blend of mystery, romance, and sharply funny writing." --Orlando Sentinel 
    Whether it’s a mystery, sassy women’s fiction, or a combination of the two, New York Times bestseller Mary Kay Andrews always gives her fans a read to remember. And now she’s throwing a Hissy Fit, in the best possible sense. A delicious tale of revenge and renovation, Hissy Fit tells of a wronged spitfire who’s determined to see that the no-good lowdown, lying, cheating varmint of an ex-fiancé who ruined her life and her business gets the comeuppance he so richly deserves…even as she struggles to revitalize a broken-down antebellum mansion for a hunky, if slightly odd, local businessman. If you like the novels of Fannie Flagg, Jennifer Crusie, Adriana Trigiani, and Emily Giffin, or are a devoted follower of Rebecca Wells or Jill Conner Browne’s Sweet Potato Queens, then Mary Kay’s Hissy Fit is not to be missed.

    Humor in Law Enforcement...

    This is Barney Smiths second book.  HUMOR IN LAW ENFORCEMENT [Factually Speaking] parallels his first book inasmuch as it humorously touches on people who had ties with, knowledge about, or experience with law enforcement.   
         Additionally, this book deals with factual actions of former law enforcement officers, average citizens, not-so-average citizens, and the author.  Also included are additional factual law enforcementrelated issues, and law enforcementrelated jokes involving cops and citizens.  
         Some citizens may be able to recognize themselves in one of the stories or situations but, in all probability, will not admit it.  Some of the officers may also recognize themselves (or be recognized), but they surely will not brag about it or bring it to anyones attention.  We will just have to let that information remain undocumented.
                                          Sorry, but it is what it is.

    Manipulators and liars, egomaniacs, bullies, interrupters, condescenders, ice queens, backstabbers, hypocrites, withholders, belligerents, self-deceivers, whiners, know-it-alls, nitpickers: these are some of the characters you’ll encounter in Difficult People, a collection of stories that investigates and celebrates difficult people (and some animals).
    As these characters fumble through their quests for YouTube fame, stand-up glory, romantic love, stable employment or anyone who can tolerate them, they reveal that we are all, in our own ways, difficult people.
    Praise for Catriona Wright’s recent book of poetry, Table Manners:
    “... a baroque feast of juicy diction and inventive wordplay that explores food as social ritual and slippery signifier of desire.”
    —Barb Carey, The Toronto Star
    “Deft, dark, and unflinching, Catriona Wright’s work is stand-up comedy for the mind.”
    —Emily Schultz, author of The Blondes
    “If you've ever Instagrammed your lunch, or directed distain toward somebody who has, this is the book for you. The poems are vivid, surprising, and pretty much devourable.”
    —Kerry Clare, 49th Shelf
    “Tightly woven and elaborate in their conceit, the poems in Table Manners linger both on the mind and palate.”
    —Gillian Sze, Montreal Review of Books
