    Addicted

    Группа авторов

    Is addiction a disease, a sin, a sign of hypersensitivity, a personal failing, or a unique resource for the creative mind? However it is defined, addiction can have devastating consequences, often shattering lives, sundering families, causing impoverishment, and even triggering suicide. Yet it can also be a source of inspiration. In these frank essays, leading American and Canadian writers explore their surprisingly diverse personal experiences with this complex phenomenon, candidly recounting what happened when alcohol, heroin, smoking, food, gambling, or sex &#151; sometimes in combination &#151; took over their lives.

    Casting Quiet Waters

    Группа авторов

    In Casting Quiet Waters, some of North America&#8217;s most respected literary writers take us on a fishing trip and use that as an opportunity to explore issues of the human condition. A little more than five centuries ago an odd English nun named Dame Juliana Berners (&#147;The Prioress of St. Albans&#8221;) wrote the first book about fishing. Her obscure but legendary tome, a Treatysse of Fyshynge wyth an Angle, is as much a work of philosophy as a how-to manual, and in it she prescribes fishing as &#147;a cure for domestic calamatie.&#8221; This anthology responds to her advice. A dozen of North America&#8217;s top writers embark on individual fishing trips and see if limpid water and the silence of wild places will help them reflect on their own lives and calamities. The exploratory process of writing is not so different from the process of trawling the unknown invisible world beneath the surface of a river or lake. The angler and writer both toss lines, chase shadows, and spend countless hours pondering what might have been if they&#8217;d handled that last opportunity with more gentleness and skill.

    A Thrilling Ride

    Группа авторов

    A Thrilling Ride invites fans to relive the greatest moments of the Canucks&#8217; most celebrated season and historic achievements, and takes them on a journey through the entire 2010-2011 season, from the opening-night introduction of the Canucks Ring of Honour to the emotional ceremony to retire former captain Markus Naslund&#8217;s jersey, and from the President&#8217;s Trophy victory through all four rounds of the play-offs, including the Canucks&#8217; redemptive victory over archrivals the Chicago Blackhawks, to the final and formidable face-off against the Boston Bruins. The book is also a tribute to Canuck Nation&#151;the enthusiastic and devoted fans who celebrated each victorious moment and suffered through each painful setback. A Thrilling Ride is dedicated to these passionate fans who&#151;with faces painted and towels in hand, some in green spandex body suits&#151;cheered relentlessly, long after the final buzzer. Fans who&#151;after hooligans and upstarts attempted to destroy their city&#151;showed up in the morning to restore order to the streets.
