Summary

“Refreshing, inspiring, and honest….One book I’m not going to be ‘giving up’ anytime soon.”—Nicole Williams, author of Earn What You’re Worth 
Give It Up! is author Mary Carlomagno’s inspiring chronicle of her 365 days spent learning to live better with less—when she decided to give up one modern convenience (eg: elevators) or indulgence (eg: alcohol) every month for a year. A joyous celebration of voluntary simplicity, Give It Up! offers a solution and a liberating new outlook to shopaholics, jaded consumers, and spirituality seekers overwhelmed by the unnecessary clutter in their lives, in the most uplifting self-help guide to better living since Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project.

    History of the Dukan Diet 
    There are many weight loss diets that can be seen in the television, internet, magazines, and books. The question is do they really work? Some may work but others don’t. The problem with many weight loss regimens is they offer quick weight loss but after the weight loss process, they fail to maintain such weight and eventually the excess pounds come again. The Dukan Diet however begs to differ. This book talks about a proven weight loss diet—the Dukan Diet. The Dukan Diet is not new because it has been there for over thirty years but it only became popular and available outside France recently after the publication of Pierre Dukan’s book The Dukan Diet. It is a fact that the success of the book is not due to marketing or advertising but because readers who found the diet effective passed it on through word-of-mouth. 
    The founder of the Dukan diet, Dr. Pierre Dukan, is a medical doctor from France. He has a 40 year experience in relation with clinical nutrition and worked with at least 40,000 patients who have weight problems. As a young doctor in Montparnasse area, he was exposed to people with weight problems. With the idea of losing weight by eating food with low calories that he learned from medical school, he began his journey of developing a weight loss program. As he saw it, there are many low-calorie diets which do not work; this is the reason why he developed a weight loss program.

    "Scandinavia now has its own Virginia Woolf. Few get as close to the human mind as Klougart"—Mari Nymoen Nilsen, VG 
    The English-language debut from one of Denmark's most exciting, celebrated young writers, One of Us Is Sleeping is a haunting novel about loss in all its forms.As she returns home to visit her mother who is dying of cancer, the narrator recounts a brief, intense love affair, as well as the grief and disillusionment that follow its end. The book's striking imagery and magnificent prose underpin its principal theme: the jarring contrast between the recollection of stability, your parents, your childhood home, your love, and the continual endings that we experience throughout our lives. 
    A true-to-life, deeply poetic novel that works in the same vein as Anne Carson, One of Us Is Sleeping has won Klougart countless accolades and award nominations, including the Readers' Book Award, securing her place as a major new voice in world literature. 
    Josefine Klougart has been hailed as one of Denmark's greatest contemporary writers. She is the first Danish author ever to have two of her first three books nominated for the Nordic Council Literature Prize. She's been compared to a range of authors, including Joan Didion, Anne Carson, and Virginia Woolf. 
    Martin Aitken has translated dozens of books from the Danish, including works by Dorthe Nors, Jussi Adler-Olsen, Peter Høeg, and Kim Leine, among others.
