When Keelin Shanley passed away aged 51, it was hard to grasp that someone so filled with life was gone. But a light so bright never really goes out, especially since in her last few months Keelin left behind this remarkable record of her life – a life cut short, but lived to the fullest. Charting the twists and turns of both a career as an investigative journalist and a lengthy battle with cancer, A Light That Never Goes Out reveals with real honesty what it’s like to keep living your life whilst dealing with the challenges of cancer treatment. Completed posthumously by Keelin’s husband Conor, A Light That Never Goes Out is a remarkable story of courage and resilience and a memorable reflection on how to live well, no matter what you’re facing. ‘Keelin's compelling story is as powerful as the woman she was.’ Liz Nugent ‘This is such a beautiful book. It’s oddly uplifting to read, even though at times I was jack-knived with sorrow. Keelin the most remarkable person - her positivity, her grace, her gratitude for her life would recalibrate anyone's attitude. A life-affirming read that will make every reader grateful for the people they love.’ Marian Keyes ‘A stunning memoir – courageous, searingly honest, moving, funny, an incredible life story beautifully told.’ Miriam O’Callaghan ‘A beautiful love story, a behind-the-scenes career exposition and a candid telling of what it is like to live with, and die from, cancer. Heartbreakingly honest and heartachingly inspirational.’ Caitríona Perry, RTÉ Six One News Co-Presenter and Author ‘I found myself moved again and again by how simply and truthfully Keelin talks about the experience of dying and I am in awe of the immense courage she showed in her final months. A book which might have been bleak instead breathes with love – for her work, her colleagues, her friends and above all, her family.’ Lenny Abrahamson, Director Normal People, Room ‘A memoir that weaves the heart-breaking story of Keelin’s terminal illness with joyous, insightful and frequently funny accounts from her life and career. A testament to the ultimate triumph of her unconquerable spirit.’ Bryan Dobson

To this day, they were, their fans believe, the best band in the world. Critics and sales figures told a similar story. Yet for all their brilliance and adoration – their famously energetic live shows routinely interrupted by stage invasions – The Smiths were continually plagued by their reticence to play the game, and by the time of 1987’s Strangeways Here We Come, they had split. Tony Fletcher’s A Light That Never Goes Out – part celebration, part paean – moves from Manchester in the nineteenth-century to the present day to tell the complete story of The Smiths. The product of extensive research and unprecedented access, it will serve to confirm The Smiths as one of the most important and influential rock groups of all time.


There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

Two trysts develop, one after the other, but no one said it would be easy. No one said things would go awry. Part One of There Is a Light That Never Goes Out is a memory of how the trio of outsiders came to find one another.

"Although loneliness is a quality that we all must endure (sometimes even while we are with someone), in every instance of it that I can think of, there is always an intervening event that rips you up in the end, apprehensively targets the tedium at first and crescendoes into an aggressive stranglehold of the heart. And I'll willfully let that happen again, but it's unpredictable when it will occur." Aiming to find the man that no longer resides in him, Vic devises a plan to unite with his inner self. In his first summer and autumn in a house on Etherington Crescent, he gathers all the necessities he needs to withdraw from the outside world and reassemble the lonely, marginalized outsider he's become. With a new found purpose, he attracts two women with similar, but subconscious, conflicts of mind. Slowly he comes to realize what underlies their personas. Two trysts develop, one after the other, but no one said it would be easy. No one said things would go awry. Part One of There Is a Light That Never Goes Out is a memory of how the trio of outsiders came to find one another. The second part is a satirical romance that, in Michael Whone's distinctly modular narrative and wry wit, transforms each beat of Vic's words into a portrait of mystical awakening. Untangling the frustration of losing the lover that waltzed before his eyes and saved his life one winter three years ago, Vic grows enlightened by the urban wilderness around him—a metaphysical beauty surfacing in the shape of his lost love. A story of Vic, Paula and Sarah, their natural yet unnatural connection with love, and life's fragility pleading them to love just a little bit deeper and more sensibly. In an ideal world, true love would save the day, but as fickle and superficial as relationships are, the three of them lead themselves deeper into a hapless desperation for heartbreak.

Romantic Revelations shows that the nonhuman is fundamental to Romanticism's political responses to climatic catastrophes. Exploring what he calls "post-apocalyptic Romanticism," Chris Washington intervenes in the critical conversation that has long defined Romanticism as an apocalyptic field. "Apocalypse" means "the revelation of a perfected world," which sees Romanticism's back-to-nature environmentalism as a return to paradise and peace on earth. Romantic Revelations, however, demonstrates that the destructive climate change events of 1816, "the year without a summer," changed Romantic thinking about the environment and the end of the world. Their post-apocalyptic visions correlate to the beginning of the Anthropocene, the time when humans initiated the possible extinction of their own species and potentially the earth. Rather than constructing paradises where humans are reborn or human existence ends, the later Romantics are interested in how to survive in the ashes after great social and climatic global disasters. Romantic Revelations argues that Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, John Clare, and Jane Austen sketch out a post-apocalyptic world that, in contrast to the sunnier Romantic narratives, is paradoxically the vision that offers us hope. In thinking through life after disaster, Washington contends that these authors craft an optimistic vision of the future that leads to a new politics.

With the issue of male on female violence more timely than ever, Saurav Dutt's harrowing new book delves deep into the issues of psychological and physical domestic abuse through the experiences of three women. All of these women have a past. Theirs is a past punctuated by abominable acts perpetrated by their partners against them. They escaped this whirlwind of abuse and torment in order to turn the page, to reload and to start their lives again. But the past has a way of catching up to them in ways they could never have imagined. The darkness of their experiences has cast a long shadow over their families, their future, the entire reason for their existence. The choices they make now will either set them free or put everything they seek to protect in harm's way once again. With striking forewords by human rights campaigners Mandy Sanghera and Polly Harrar, 'There is a light that never goes out' is an uncomfortable but necessary journey into the darkness of the human pysche and details an aspect of abuse and gender inequality that is more pressing now that it has ever been.

Throughout her journey as a Psychological Specialist in Correctional Facilities and in Private Practice, she had some clients that survived severe and horrifying rapes and childhood sexual abuse and incest. Some of the clients that confided in her she could not even believe were still alive. Years of TORTURE, RAPE, and ABUSE. So she started documenting with their permission. She held a private Survivor Group and they have all come so far in their journeys of recovery. One of her clients has a similar story to the Penn State Sandusky case (as a victim) and the pedophile has been arrested. She is a strong believer in standing up for what you believe so you can encourage other victims to receive courage to do the same. Completing this book as well as watching her group evolve as they completed their empowerment assignments has been a journey for her. The actual stories of the victims are included in this book. The guided therapeutic assignments given to the group, as well as their non-edited testimonies, assignments, and disclosures are also included. One specific clients childhood was nothing but horrifying incestual torture. She thinks that this book, when published, may be her purpose that God made me go through years of suffering...I finally see that God loved me and made me have a special purpose... This book is something that will not only grab your attention, but hopefully encourage the public to take the stigma AWAY from seeking professional mental health help. It is never too late to seek help. There is no shame in seeking to find the light within you that never goes out.
