Summary

'I thoroughly enjoyed this utterly lovely story. Touching, heartwarming and a joy to read' Holly Martin. 
 
Nina Conte has written three novels and lives in a rambling farmhouse on the outskirts of a beautiful Cornish seaside village with her family and German Shepherd Minnie. 
 
Nina's life sounds great on paper. Or, more precisely, in her author bio. But, in reality, the farmhouse is crumbling, her gambling ex-husband has run away with all their money, and Nina is just about keeping their (leaking) roof over her children's heads. The only people she has to count on are her friends, Jack and Emma, the neighbours who live in the houses on either side.
 
But then her agent and best friend Alice gives her some life-changing news: her very first novel, Written in the Stars, has been picked up by a film producer in Hollywood. And before she knows it, she's flying her out to LA – kids in tow – to meet the producers!
 
To Nina's surprise, Luke O'Hara, Hollywood heartthrob and dashing single dad, is head of the project and he insists on having it his way, or the entire deal goes up in smoke. He wants her to co-write the screenplay with him – and he'll move to Cornwall with his daughter to do it.
 
All of Nina's wildest dreams have come true. But is this new life what she really wants?
 
An utterly relatable and charming new Cornish romance.

    What is the 'Toronto look'? Glass skyscrapers rise beside Victorian homes, and Brutalist apartment buildings often mark the edge of leafy ravines, creating a city of contrasts whose architectural look can only be defined by telling the story of how it came together and how it works, today, as an imperfect machine.
     
    Shawn Micallef has been examining Toronto’s streetscapes for a decade. His psychogeographic reportages, some of which have been featured in EYE WEEKLY and Spacing magazine, situate Toronto's buildings and streets in living, breathing detail, and tell us about the people who use them; the ways, intended or otherwise, that they are being used; and how they are evolving.
     
    Stroll celebrates Toronto's details – some subtle, others grand – at the speed of walking and, in so doing, helps us to better get to know its many neighbourhoods, taking us from well-known spots like the CN Tower and Pearson Airport to the overlooked corners of Scarborough and all the way to the end of the Leslie Street Spit in Lake Ontario.
     
    Stroll features thirty-two walks, a flâneur manifesto, a foreword by architecture critic John Bentley Mays and dozens of hand-drawn maps by Marlena Zuber.
     
    'Shawn Micallef looks at the city in a way we all should more often – he sees it as a living book thatis alive with stories just waiting to be told to the attentive observer. In Stroll, he gives us an introduction to just how interesting and surprisingly dramatic those stories are, and how exciting our city is when we hear them.'
     
    – David Crombie, former mayor of Toronto
     
    'A smart and intimate guide to the city that makes you feel like an insider from start to finish.'
     
    – Douglas Coupland
     
    Stroll is co-published with EYE WEEKLY.

    Fifty-three of today's most esteemed writers answer the question, "What makes this bar better than all other bars?"  
    "A reminder that no matter where you are in the world there is always a place nearby that feels like home." —The Paris Review
    
     
    A neighborhood bar can become as comfortable as a second home or a memory best avoided—a wild evening half remembered and better forgotten. But what makes a particular bar special, better than the one just down the street? The answers vary considerably as writers share personal stories of drinking establishments both local and exotic. Come Here Often is an intoxicating world tour from Antarctica to New York City, Kiribati to Minnesota, to the places that have inspired—and distracted— some of our favorite contemporary writers over many years and many more drinks. 
    
     
    Funny, smart, and poignant, this anthology is a rare opportunity to do some serious armchair drinking with Andrew W.K., Rosie Schaap, Jack Hitt, Jim Shepard, Alissa Nutting, Duff McKagan, Laura Lippman, Craig Finn, Elissa Schappell, and many more.

    Black tourism has been on the rise for the last few years. While it is wonderful to see pictures of other Black people having a good time in other countries and submerging themselves into other cultures, there is still a small problem. There is hardly any travel content available from a Black perspective. This travel guide was created to help address that issue.
     
    This black travel guide aims to show potential travelers why Incheon, South Korea should take priority over Seoul or Busan. It was designed and created by an all-Black team for people of color. Inside of this guide you will find travel information written from the viewpoint of an African American male living in Korea, information about places to explore with special attention to places for nerds that enjoy Marvel, Gundam, One Piece, and more. This guide goes into depth about what it is like to be a Black person in Korea as a resident and as a tourist.
