Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you have to stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who happens to be plus sized-and then some. Forced to explain his new relationship to his shallow (although shockingly funny) friends, finally he comes to terms with his own preconceptions of the importance of conventional good looks. Neil LaBute's sharply drawn play not only critiques our slavish adherence to Hollywood ideals of beauty but boldy questions our own ability to change what we dislike about ourselves.

Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

Profane, honest, and totally real advice from writer and director Kevin Smith! Take one look at Kevin Smith: he's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote bestselling books and graphic novels, and has a beautiful wife and kid. So he must be doing something right. As Kevin's millions of Twitter followers and millions of podcast listeners know, he's the first one to admit his flaws and the last one to care about them. In early 2011, he began using his platform to answer big questions from fans - like "What should I do with my life?"- and he discovered that he had a lot to say. Tough Sh*t distills his four decades of breaking all the rules down to direct and brutally honest advice, including: Why he has accepted Ferris Bueller as his personal savior, and what the Tenets of Buellerism can teach about hiding in plain sight and lip-syncing in the face of danger Why it's really fun to eat but not so fun to be fat What to do about people who don't like your policies ( for starters, tell them to pucker up and smooch your big ol' butt) What Kevin's idol Wayne Gretzky can teach us about creativity and direction For anyone who's out of a job, out of luck, or just out of sugary snack foods, Tough Sh*t is an unabashedly honest guide to getting the most out of doing the least.

The Selfish Pig's Guide To Caring

How to cope with the emotional and practical aspects of caring for someone

Six million people in the UK, often unnoticed by the rest of us, provide unpaid care for disabled or elderly relatives, friends or neighbours. Their job is long, lonely and hard, yet there is limited support and no formal training. As a result, carers suffer frequent damage to physical and mental health. Oddly, though carers by definition are anything but selfish pigs, they are liable to feelings of guilt, probably brought on by fatigue and isolation. So Hugh Marriott has written this book for them - and also for the rest of us who don't know what being a carer is all about. His aim is bring into the open everything he wishes he'd been told when he first became a carer. And he does. The book airs such topics as sex, thoughts of murder, and dealing with the responses of friends and officials who fail to understand. This is a must-read for anyone involved with caring.

Before Burke, before Cross, Andrew Vachss created Wesley: a ruthless assassin who would stop at nothing to take out his targets. A BombBuilt in Hell is Wesley's story. While doing extended time for killing a fellow prisoner, Wesley meets Carmine Trentoni in a New York state prison. Carmine's life sentence hasn't cut him off from his outside sources, and he sees great potential in Wesley to carry out his revenge, and carry on his lucrative business. Wesley emerges from prison prepared to be the perfect hitman: calculating, deadly, and driven by money. On his release from prison, Wesley follows Carmine's directions to locate a Mr. Petraglia—the Q to his working-class James Bond. Pet and Wesley set up shop in Brooklyn, and execute their assignments, from a rising Chinatown mobster to a visiting Haitian dignitary, with finesse—and, occasionally, more explosives than are strictly called for. But Wesley isn't satisfied with his low-profile lot, and sets out to make a mark on the city that everyone will notice—which he does, in a shocking, dynamite conclusion.

"In 1941, after the German (Nazi) occupation of Yugoslavia, the Jewish population was persecuted and, very soon, deportation began. "Following the deportation of her husband and son, and when she realized that women were also being deported, Relly's mother entrusted Relly to her sister, Relly's aunt, who was married to a Christian. A few days later, Relly's mother was also deported. Thinking that the end of the war was imminent, the aunt had undertaken to look after Relly. "As the war dragged on, and afraid that Relly would be discovered living in their home, endangering the lives of the whole family, the aunt sent her twelve-year-old niece to a village some distance from Belgrade. There she found refuge with a poor young woman who was chronically ill and who did not know Relly's true identity. She accepted to look after Relly for a modest payment. Relly was all the time in fear that her true identity would be discovered. "After some time, she was brought back to Belgrade and hidden in the home of a couple who depended on Relly's uncle for their livelihood. There, in a room the size of the mattress she slept on, Relly had to pass her days without giving any sign of life. In the three-bedroom apartment, two of the rooms were used by a lawyer, who did not know that Relly was there. "We learn about the daily tensions - the surreal happenings - lived through by a young girl, in a world which quaked under relentless ferocity while awaiting for the victory of a free world over the barbarians. "All through the book, one hears the voice of a young girl and feels with her her on-going, traumatic experiences."
