From the moment Lucy met her husband’s mother, she knew she wasn’t the wife Diana had envisioned for her perfect son. Exquisitely polite, friendly, and always generous, Diana nonetheless kept Lucy at arm’s length despite her desperate attempts to win her over. And as a pillar in the community, an advocate for female refugees, and a woman happily married for decades, no one had a bad word to say about Diana...except Lucy. That was five years ago. Now, Diana is dead, a suicide note found near her body claiming that she longer wanted to live because of the cancer wreaking havoc inside her body. But the autopsy finds no cancer. It does find traces of poison, and evidence of suffocation. Who could possibly want Diana dead? Why was her will changed at the eleventh hour to disinherit both of her children, and their spouses? And what does it mean that Lucy isn’t exactly sad she’s gone? Fractured relationships and deep family secrets grow more compelling with every page in this twisty, captivating new novel from Sally Hepworth.

Their first stop: an illegal speakeasy to celebrate! At this point, though, Celeste is deeply in love and also deeply unaware of who her fiancé actually is. She begins her inquiry into Louis' life by asking the simple question, "Who are you?" As Louis slowly reveals his background, Celeste learns that his mother is Helen Gould Shepard, daughter of the railroad giant, Jay Gould, then considered the wealthiest woman in the country, as well as the most religious, stubborn and just perplexingly odd.

At the first two presentations of this play in 165 and 160 BC, the prospect of rival attractions drove the actors prematurely off the stage, and it was only in September 160 that it was finally performed in full. For this reason the play has been seen as spanning virtually the whole of Terence's career, while the fact that the playwright refused to abandon it to oblivion indicates the importance which he himself attached to it. Though its plot is founded upon the conventional theme of marital problems, The Mother in Law departs radically from the usual treatment of such topics to become at times more closely akin to tragedy than to comedy. It is the purpose of this edition to show Terence's skill not only in terms of plot construction and development but also in character portrayal and his ability to maintain the suspense of the situation almost to the last moment.

Based on diaries and email correspondence that she kept from 1981-2004, here Suad Amiry evokes daily life in the West Bank town of Ramallah. Capturing the frustrations, cabin fever, and downright misery of her experiences, Amiry writes with elegance and humor about the enormous difficulty of moving from one place to another, the torture of falling in love with someone from another town, the absurdity of her dog receiving a Jerusalem identity card when thousands of Palestinians could not, and the trials of having her ninety-two-year-old mother-in-law living in her house during a forty-two-day curfew. With a wickedly sharp ear for dialogue and a keen eye for detail, Amiry gives us an original, ironic, and firsthand glimpse into the absurdity—and agony—of life in the Occupied Territories.

The book is called an intellectual diary. It represents a partly lyrical and mostly philosophical rendition of the author's unorthodox thinking, as it developed since his adolescence, gradually maturing over a number of decades. Already at an early age, he evolved his own philosophical opinions, working them into a system of looking at the Universe. He wrote poetry during that same period and combined those lyrical efforts with other areas of his activities. His thoughts are derived in part from a pantheistic and buddhistic view of the world of reality. He combines the perception of his Human nature, with the conviction that he also reflects the Fallen God, Creator of this world, banned from the primordial essence. He awakens to the realization that, along with all other images he has of his World, he carries in his Being the proscribed soul that errs eternally from entity to entity, in analogy to Ahasver and the Flying Dutchman, to Faust and other legendary destinies.
