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.

"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.

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.

Consciousness and nostalgia in the Swipe Right age This collection attempts to find poetry, or what Gwendolyn MacEwen once called Òa single symmetry,Ó amid the chaos of 21st-century life. A powerful catalogue of loss and human connection, it considers not only how our identities are formed by places and experiences rooted in childhood, but also by digital newsfeeds, YouTube, and the Ògospel of Spotify.Ó These poems intimately confront topics as diverse as quantum physics, video arcades, mental illness, climate change, road rage, alcoholism, endangered species, and even a gigantic NoahÕs Ark replica. Chris Banks is a poet known for packing his lines with thought and feeling. Building on the generous work of John Koethe, Larry Levis, and Ada Lim—n, BanksÕs wildly expansive, often lyric, deeply accessible poems are brilliant meditations on what it means to be human in a brave new world of cloud computing and smart phones.

In Leaders of the Pack: Girl Groups of the 1960s and their Influence on Popular Culture musician and music historian Sean MacLeod surveys the hundreds of girl groups that appeared not only in the United States but also in Great Britain during the early 1960s. This study corrects the neglect of their critical contribution of popular music history by exploring the social and political climate from which the girl groups emerged and their effect, in turn, on local and national music and culture. Leaders of the Pack is essential reading for students, scholars, and fans of 1960s music and culture. It will further interest anyone interested in women’s studies, modern American and British culture, and music history, with important forays into such topics as the Civil Rights Movement, second and third wave feminism, and post-war life.

Seus fãs acreditavam que eles eram a maior banda do mundo. Tendo iniciado a carreira em Manchester, Inglaterra, os Smiths são sucesso de crítica e público desde meados dos anos 1980. Por suas inesquecíveis canções e melodias, até hoje eles são considerados um dos maiores grupos do rock britânico — ao lado dos Beatles e dos Rolling Stones. Tony Fletcher compõe um retrato vívido das fascinantes personalidades do grupo: Morrissey, o irônico e inteligente vocalista, cujo comportamento solitário e letras complexas o tornaram um ícone para milhares de adolescentes que se sentem desamparados e esquecidos; seu parceiro de banda Marr, o popular guitarrista que se tornou um deus do rock para toda uma geração; e a talentosa e bela dupla formada pelo baixista Rourke e pelo baterista Joyce. Apesar do trágico fim da banda no auge de seu sucesso, The Smiths: A biografia é uma celebração: a saga de quatro garotos da classe operária de uma pequena cidade ao norte da Inglaterra que superam suas personalidades contrastantes para encontrar um vínculo musical, inspirar milhares de pessoas e deixar um legado que mudou a música — e a vida de seus fãs — para sempre. · Primeira biografia sobre a banda publicada no Brasil.

Morrissey & Marr: The Severed Alliance is among the most successful – and controversial – rock biographies ever published. Having denounced the book and called for the death of its author Johnny Rogan, Morrissey later did a U-turn and cited it as evidence in the royalty-related court case brought by Smiths drummer Mike Joyce.Now, 20 years after it was first published, Rogan has returned to his definitive Smiths biography to produce a completely revised edition based on new information and new interviews to add to the almost 100 initially conducted over a four-year period. Widely acclaimed as one rock’s leading writers, Johnny Rogan now brings yet more insight and analysis to his best-selling book that revealed, for the first time, the true and unsanitised story of The Smiths – the most important group of their generation.

In the middle of the first decade of the twenty-first century,African Americans made up approximately twelve percent ofthe United States population but close to forty percent of the United States prison population. Now, in the latter half of the decade, the nation is in the midst of the largest multi-year discharge of prisoners in its history. In Releasing Prisoners, Redeeming Communities, Anthony C. Thompson discusses what is likely to happen to these ex-offenders and why. For Thompson, any discussion of ex-offender reentry is, de facto, a question of race. After laying out the statistics, he identifies the ways in which media and politics have contributed to the problem, especially through stereotyping and racial bias. Well aware of the potential consequences if this country fails to act, Thompson offers concrete, realizable ideas of how our policies could, and should, change.
