From Graham Norton—the BAFTA-award-winning and hugely popular BBC America television host—comes a charming debut novel set in an idyllic Irish village where a bumbling investigator has to sort through decades of gossip and secrets to solve a mysterious crime. “With its tale of provincial life, gimlet-eyed spinsters, and thwarted love…it feels almost like a Miss Marple mystery written by Colm Tóibín” (New York Times). The remote Irish village of Duneen has known little drama, and yet its inhabitants are troubled: Sergeant P.J. Collins hasn’t always been this overweight; Brid Riordan, a mother of two, hasn’t always been an alcoholic; and elegant Evelyn Ross hasn’t always felt that her life was a total waste. So when human remains—suspected to be those of Tommy Burke, a former lover of both Brid and Evelyn—are discovered on an old farm, the village’s dark past begins to unravel. As a frustrated P.J. struggles to solve a genuine case for the first time in his professional life, he unearths a community’s worth of anger and resentments, secrets and regrets. Darkly comic, at times profoundly sad, and “especially inviting because of its tongue-in-cheek wit” (Kirkus Reviews), Holding is a masterful debut. Graham Norton employs his acerbic humor to breathe life into a host of lovable characters, and explore—with searing honesty—the complexities and contradictions that make us human.

Apparently you can sue the mafia and live to tell about it. In his dynamic autobiography, Doug Dane explains the extraordinary circumstances that led to this conflict when his life was threatened, and how he survived. This true story about the author and his wife, Kerri James, is told in graphic terms in HOLDING ON - I Sued the Mafia and Lived to Tell About It (The Story of Sundance Dane and Kerri James). The book has taken ten years to write; it is the story of a man whose life occupation has been waste recycling, processing, trucking and disposal, with a lifelong goal of developing a system of waste recovery parks throughout the world. An amateur boxer, Dane still competes at age 61, against opponents 30 and 40 years younger than himself. I have won the Southern California Golden Gloves Championship several times, and I believe that much of age is a state of mind. He was motivated to write his memoir by the brave people, who no matter what the cost, never give up, and when I re-met my first love. About the Author: Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, first-time author Doug Dane now resides with his wife in Santa Barbara, California.

In "Holding On," anthropologist Alyson O Daniel analyzes the abstract debates about health policy for the sickest and most vulnerable Americans as well as the services designated to help them by taking readers into the daily lives of poor African American women living with HIV at the advent of the 2006 Treatment Modernization Act. At a time when social support resources were in decline and publicly funded HIV/AIDS care programs were being re-prioritized, women s daily struggles with chronic poverty, drug addiction, mental health, and neighborhood violence influenced women s lives in sometimes unexpected ways. An ethnographic portrait of HIV-positive black women and their interaction with the U.S. healthcare system, "Holding On" reveals how gradients of poverty and social difference shape women s health care outcomes and, by extension, women s experience of health policy reform. Set among the realities of poverty, addiction, incarceration, and mental illness, the case studies in "Holding On" illustrate how subtle details of daily life affect health and how overlooking them when formulating public health policy has fostered social inequality anew and undermined health in a variety of ways."

When investments donand’t live up to their promise, the situation is typically due to several factors. In most cases, the key reasons are a combination of the place of investment, the product, and the selection of detrimental tax planning measures. Often, international tax planning tips the scales regarding the success of a U.S. investment in Europe. This timely book analyzes concepts and structures that can be used as a and“construction kit, and” applying combinations of basic tools to meet the challenges of an ever-changing global tax environment. In the wake of globalization, a host of new tax planning opportunities is available to investors. Techniques designed to legally reduce the relevant tax burden have simultaneously become more sophisticated and easier. Consequently this work analyzes concepts, risks, limits of tax planning, and introduces a model that allows tax professionals to structure and continuously re-evaluate their tax planning. Instead of relocating entire companies to other countries, firms can reduce their tax liability using the techniques and measures of tax planning described in the model. The overall goal of the work is to analyze the problem of repatriating U.S. profits from Europe under an integrated and holistic approach, going far beyond the routing of income via different companies. Instead, the approach includes an analysis of the interdependencies between international tax competition, holding company regimes, and tax planning concepts in order to establish a basis for tax planning measures regardless of the fast changing legal environment for holding companies in the different countries.

D.W. Winnicott, a psychoanalyst of extraordinary grace and originality, left a body of work distinguished by fierce independence of mind, profound playfulness and technique, and passionate intelligence. Holding and Interpretation, a verbatim record of his sessions with a psychotic patient, vividly illustrates his enormous contribution to psychoanalytic theory and technique, his skill at “holding” the patient in the analytic session and providing guidance through sensitive interpretation. It is a rare working portrait of one of the true giants of psychoanalysis—“a very vast subject,” as he said, “which has the great charm of being really useful.”

When in 1 980 I wrote the foreword to The Art of Roya//cing I wished my friend Audrey Holding every success for her book; I was convinced that its appearance would fill a real gap in the literature then available by providing a comprehensive but simple and practicable guide to the techniques used in royal icing. Now. six years later. with The Art of Roya//cing sold widely throughout the world. I know that Audrey's second book on this subject is assured of success. In it she has developed many of the ideas presented in her first book. and she takes the cake-decorator through the stages of intricate techniques which would normally be regarded as beyond the competence of the amateur. With Audrey's guidance (and lots of patient practice!) we can all become experts. JUNE ELWOOD M. lnst. B. B. , M. e. FA(e. G) Cake Artistry Studio. Swinton, Manchester, UK v Preface My first book. The Art of Royal Icing * set out to explain the craft to those who had no previous knowledge of the subject. In this book. I hope to go one stage further and expand the ideas and techniques formulated in The Art of Royal Icing. especially in relation to runout figure piping. In order to avoid repetition. some basics have been omitted. enabling other areas to be dealt with in greater detail.
