From the author of Gillis Huckabee comes Sean Conway's powerful first collection of short stories. In storySouth Magazine's Million Writer's Award-nominated "Scratch," a divorced man tries to control a raging breakout of poison ivy while his personal life erupts violently out of control. In "Ashes, Ashes" an unemployed laborer is unable to look forward, so consumed by his role in devastating events of the past. And in "January Thaw" a single mother struggles to let go of the life she once envisioned for the uncharted path of her present when her recently-widowed father moves in with her and her young son. Despite its title, The Slowpoke's Guide to Getting It Right is not, in fact, a guide. It is not a how-to book. If anything, these stories combine to form a how-not-to guide. Sean Conway's characters distract themselves from facing truths; they blame others for their own tragic decisions; they find themselves suddenly unprepared, face-to-face with life situations that they should have seen coming a mile away, but, like many of us, missed. Like many of us-perhaps even all of us-they're slowpokes.

A brilliant new life in seven easy-to-follow steps. What could possibly go wrong? At twenty-four, Megan Riley has a boring job and a humdrum life. Then she stumbles across a magazine article called "How to Be a Confident Woman." Her flatmate, Zara, thinks it's daft, but Megan is certain that this list is her path to a more exciting future. Clearing the chocolate stash out of her desk and investing in good lingerie are simple enough. It's the part about asking out a guy who's way out of her league that's a disaster waiting to happen. Liam Wiseman is gorgeous, funny and…totally not into Megan. It's almost enough to drive her into the arms of the "successful London lawyer" Megan's mum has picked out for her. Almost. As Megan strides boldly from one misadventure to the next, she discovers that being a strong, independent woman doesn't mean wearing an expensive bra or learning to make a chicken curry. True confidence means being herself—and being herself might just result in finding love along the way.
In this investigation into loss, losing and being lost, Rebecca Solnit explores the challenges of living with uncertainty. A Field Guide to Getting Lost takes in subjects as eclectic as memory and mapmaking, Hitchcock movies and Renaissance painting, Beautifully written, this book combines memoir, history and philosophy, shedding glittering new light on the way we live now.
As more and more people survive into old age, the burden of caring for them becomes greater and greater. Although it is now possible to alleviate many of the afflictions that beset mankind, no society can afford to pay for all the healthcare that is now available or technically possible. People working in healthcare increasingly have to do more with less. Rationing takes many forms, mostly covert, and the less privileged in most societies end up struggling to get their proper share of the available healthcare resources. All too often, those in the front-line have to deal with the consequences of this 'rationing by default': healthcare professionals find themselves rushed off their feet simply doing the basic tasks and completing all the paperwork; placing frail, sick people in ever lengthening queues, sometimes asking them to wait for hours in the middle of the night under uncomfortable and even unsafe conditions; and, worst of all, working under conditions they would rather avoid in which the safety margin for those they are caring for has been greatly diminished. We are all aware that under these conditions the chance of making a mistake which can seriously harm or even lead to the death of a patient is greatly increased. But what can be done about this? How can you be sure that you are doing the right thing when faced with having to practise an uncertain science on vulnerable patients in a complex system under ever-changing conditions? At what point could you cross the invisible line from reasonable to irresponsible or unethical behaviour by tolerating conditions or tacitly accepting practices which may be regarded as unacceptable, even though you may have little immediate control over them? This book is a guide to getting it right for healthcare professionals. It is about doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, for the right people. These are the dimensions of quality in healthcare, and although some are in conflict (equitable access and efficiency, for example), adherence to ethical practice and professional behaviour will help lead healthcare practitioners through the minefield of responsibilities and priorities. Real-life situations are integral to the book, with over 500 clinical examples referred to within the text.
Sex. After. Baby. These three words are spoken in hushed voices over playdates and at playgrounds. But while we may whisper them to our closest girlfriends, or joke about them after one too many beers with the guys, when it comes to talking with our partners about what's really going on (or not going on, as the case may be) in our child-proofed bedrooms, more and more of us find ourselves tongue-tied and tiptoeing. Are you part of the "sleepless, sexless" club? You just might be, if You'd rather just go to bed than go to bed with your partner. The mind-blowing sex you once had now just blows. The TV is turned on more than you are. A playdate sounds better to you than yet another bad date night. The baby gets more kisses and cuddles than you do. You're beaten down from always having to initiate sex. Foreplay has become chore-play. "Let's get it on" are now fighting words. But it doesn't have to be this way. According to bestselling author Ian Kerner, Ph.D., and "naughty mommy" Heidi Raykeil, it really is possible to do the hokey pokey and keep up the hanky panky. Ian and Heidi often bring very different perspectives, but they agree that sex matters . . . a lot. It's the glue that holds couples together and keeps lovers from becoming simply roommates or co-parents. Funny and frank, Love in the Time of Colic will help parents take the charge out of this once-taboo subject, and put it back where it belongs—in the bedroom.
