This is a true love story, with the addition of some fantasy parts mainly related the role of a saint, St. Antonio of Padua, who has been a guide to the two lovers throughout the years. The story begins at Allegheny College in 1957 where Thomas and Madeleine meet. They become close, but then time and distance intervene to separate them for twenty years. The story resumes in 1977 with a single telephone call, then a dinner together, then a week in Portugal followed by endless travel between Switzerland and the USA and trips together all over the world. Thomas describes his years of medical research, military life, clinical practice, teaching, and loneliness in the years between the above dates. But, with that simple telephone call, everything changes. The love story begins. Thomas and Madeleine are married in 1985 then they settle in to the companionship phase of their life. Thomas closes the love story with some poems, nursery rhymes, and music he wrote during the many years of this adventure. All along, St. Antonio does his best to keep their love alive, and Thomass father, who had died in 1960, makes a small but timely intervention in New York City in 1962. St. Antonio is hoping that this story will help others to look at their own close relationships and perhaps call on him to help them along the way.

Now entering its seventh year, Big Brother is an annual event on British TV. It generates a huge amount of press and shines a spotlight on the state of Britain today. But what do the producers really do? Have they got a hidden agenda? Do they edit to create characters? How do the media manipulate our opinions? Can they really make or break a star? And what do the contestants think? Do they feel used or do they relish the opportunity? What is life after the show like for them? Would they recommend it to others? Narinder Kaur, a former Big Brother contestant, has travelled the country speaking with past contestants from all series as well as with TV producers and the media. Now, for the first time, we hear their thoughts, in their own words. This is the truth behind the reality.

Stamped on products from coffee to handicrafts, the term “fair trade” has quickly become one of today’s most seductive consumer buzzwords. Purportedly created through fair labor practices, or in ways that are environmentally sustainable, fair-trade products give buyers peace of mind in knowing that, in theory, how they shop can help make the world a better place. Buying into Fair Trade turns the spotlight onto this growing trend, exploring how fair-trade shoppers think about their own altruism within an increasingly global economy. Using over 100 interviews with fair-trade consumers, national leaders of the movement, coffee farmers, and artisans, author Keith Brown describes both the strategies that consumers use to confront the moral contradictions involved in trying to shop ethically and the ways shopkeepers and suppliers reconcile their need to do good with the ever-present need to turn a profit. In addition to his in-depth analysis of the fair-trade market, Brown also provides a how-to chapter that outlines strategies readers can use to appear altruistic.This chapter highlights the ways that socially responsible markets have been detached from issues of morality. A fascinating account of how consumers first learn about, understand, and sometimes ignore the ethical implications of shopping, Buying into Fair Trade sheds new light on the potential for the fair trade market to reshape the world into a more socially-just place.

Exhaustively researched and almost flirtatiously opinionated, When Blanche Met Brando is everything a fan needs to know about the ground-breaking New York and London stage productions of Williams' "Streetcar" as well as the classic Brando/Leigh film. Sam Staggs' interviews with all the living cast members of each production will enhance what's known about the play and movie, and help make this book satisfying as both a pop culture read and as a deeper piece of thinking about a well-known story. Readers will come away from this book delighted with the juicy behind-the-scenes stories about cast, director, playwright and the various productions and will also renew their curiosity about the connection between the role of Blanche and Viven Leigh's insatiable sexual appetite and later descent into breakdown. They may also-for the first time-question whether the character of Blanche was actually "mad" or whether her anxiousness was symptomatic of another disorder. "A Streetcar Named Desire" is one of the most haunting and most-studied modern plays. Staggs' new book will fascinate fans and richen newcomers' understanding of its importance in American theater and movie history.

Eve Preste, aka Eve Dolansky grew up in a small town in Appleton, New York on a large fruit farm. She went to college at Niagara University and Buffalo State College to study journalism. After meeting her first husband, she moved to Florida and had two daughters, Alexis and Sierra. She then, embarked on a 20 year journey in the financial industry. At 45, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Journaling became her vehicle of deliverance from a bottomless abyss. Writing in her journal allowed a to spend time and make some sense of this surreal dream. By exploring deep within her, she began to develop clarity in the midst of a storm. After yielding to the higher power, it helped her welcome the beauty of the entire situation. As Dr. Wayne Dyer says: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Perfect health is balanced by a life threatening disease. Once an equilibrium is maintained, we can understand that opposites are joined together. When suffering comes our way, it is how we respond to it that determines who we become. It was her choice to make a calamity or true gift out of her illness. Rather than lamenting, Eve chose to be grateful for each sunrise, sunset person and circumstance in her life. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Eve embarked on a new journey of wellness. She hopes to establish a wellness center to help people balance their mind body and spirit. One major event can turn ones life around for the better: we hold true to the saying, Things happen for a reason.

A blond-haired, blue-eyed Lutheran man is approached on the streets of Chicago by members of the Latin Kings so he may teach them how to pray, and he does so with grace--this man's story, one suspects, isn't going to be a typical one. Life has not been easy for Charles Featherstone. From being bullied by peers and teachers in school, to his refusing to become a bully himself by leaving the armed services, to wandering the world in search of work and finding unexpected hospitality as an outsider nearly everywhere, to witnessing the 9/11 attacks from his nearby office, Featherstone's story is a tale of survival akin to Jacob's wrestling the angel at the River Jabbok. It may well leave the reader limping a bit, too, for the encounter with God found in these pages is stark and startling. Truly God's love knows no bounds and cannot be captured by labels--but as Featherstone's life attests, that love just might capture you.

Vibrant and candid memoirs of the late, great British character actor, Pete Postlethwaite. After training as a teacher, Pete Postlethwaite started his acting career at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre where his colleagues included Bill Nighy, Jonathan Pryce, Antony Sher and Julie Walters. After routine early appearances in small parts for television programmes such as THE PROFESSIONALS, Postlethwaite's first success came with the acclaimed British film DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES in 1988. He then received an Academy Award nomination for his role in THE NAME OF THE FATHER in 1993. His performance as the mysterious lawyer "Kobayashi" in THE USUAL SUSPECTS is well-known, and he appeared in many successful films including ALIEN 3, BRASSED OFF, THE SHIPPING NEWS, THE CONSTANT GARDENER, as Friar Lawrence in Baz Luhrmann's ROMEO + JULIET, and in INCEPTION with Leonardo diCaprio. Pete Postlethwaite was one of the best-loved and widely admired performers on stage, TV (SHARPE, THE SINS) and in cinema. In THE ART OF DISCWORLD, Terry Pratchett said that he had always imagined Sam Vimes as 'a younger, slightly bulkier version of Pete Postlethwaite', while Steven Spielberg called him 'the best actor in the world', about which Postlethwaite said: 'I'm sure what Spielberg actually said was, "the thing about Pete is that he thinks he's the best actor in the world."' This is the story of a diverse and multi-talented actor's eventful life, told in his own candid and vibrant words.
