I will never leave this car, the back seat reeks of everything my little brother has ever eaten, and that thing is still out there ... Myles and his family have been driving for four days. It's their final night on the road, but Myles knows they will never arrive at their new house. It will never stop raining. And even if they do get there (which is doubtful), he knows he will never have friends again. He also knows that something is following them in the dark, rainy fields outside their car. Something monstrous . Once the monster arrives, things go very wrong. Myles and his family get lost, their car keeps breaking down, and a strange old man and his dog turn up, again and again. Then things get really weird. Myles is pretty sure it's all his fault: he's the only one who can see the monster. He's the only one who can hear the monster. And hardest of all? He's the only one who can make it go away.
    When published Faulkner Fox's article on motherhood, "What I Learned from Losing My Mind," the response was so overwhelming that Salon reran the piece twice. The experience made Faulkner realize that she was not alone--that the country is full of women who are anxious and conflicted about their roles as mothers and wives. In Dispatches from a Not-So-Perfect Life, her provocative, brutally honest, and often hilarious memoir of motherhood, Faulkner explores the causes of her unhappiness, as well as the societal and cultural forces that American mothers have to contend with. From the time of her first pregnancy, Faulkner found herself--and her body--scrutinized by doctors, friends, strangers, and, perhaps most of all, herself. In addition to the significant social pressures of raising the perfect child and being the perfect mom, Faulkner also found herself increasingly incensed by the unequal distribution of household labor and infuriated by the gender inequity in both her home and others'. And though she loves her children and her husband passionately, is thankful for her bountiful middle-class life, and feels wracked with guilt for being unhappy, she just can't seem to experience the sense of satisfaction that she thought would come with the package. She's finally got it all--the husband, the house, the kids, an interesting part-time job, even a few hours a week to write--so why does she feel so conflicted? Faulkner sheds light on the fear, confusion, and isolation experienced by many new mothers, mapping the terrain of contemporary domesticity, marriage, and motherhood in a voice that is candid, irreverent, and deeply personal, while always chronicling the unparalleled joy she and other mothers take in their children.

    This inaugural volume in the MLA series Teaching Languages, Literatures, and Cultures provides an overview of second language acquisition research. Is language a system of linguistic forms to be acquired by the study of grammar, or is language a means of communication, where students learn not by studying rules but by engaging straightaway in the use of language to convey meanings? Which approach is better in the classroom? The vibrant field of second language acquisition research is now carefully examining questions like these. Written for a nonspecialized audience -- for readers who share an interest in foreign language teaching and learning -- Learning Foreign and Second Languages addresses both theory and methodology. Administrators, department chairs, curriculum and materials developers, teachers, and graduate students will find this collection of essays enlightening.
    When Thou Art Converted is a compilation of messages and lessons to challenge, motivate and inspire the body of Christ. Many believers live a life of secret sin and compromise not answering God's call for righteousness and true holiness as stated in Galatians 4:24. This book challenges the reader to truly consider their conversion and calls for proof of the evidence as given in Scripture. It will also help the reader identify their stage of development within the womb of the Spirit; many claims on maturity are made by some who are actually in the embryonic or fetal stage. When Thou Art Converted provides a simple approach to a complex issue, and through Biblical truth, will break down but then build up the reader, sharing profound truth that cries loudly over strongholds and battle grounds to come forth in a new life of blessing and grace.
    Tamara Ames is sixteen years old, pregnant, and on her own when she arrives in the small lumber town of Fir Valley, Oregon, determined to make a new life for herself and her child. And when she falls victim to a diabolical scheme to steal her newborn baby from her, she is not about to give up her child without a fight, even if she has to take on the wealthiest and most powerful family in the county. But is Tamara fighting against her child's own best interests Only she can decide. And it's a decision that she and her child will have to live with for the rest of their lives. In "Tamara's Child," a first novel by B K Mayo, the author weaves from sensuous detail a storyline as gritty and complex as life itself. Loss, treachery, greed, even murder play roles in this riveting tale. But in the end, it is the redemptive value of unconditional love that drives the pivotal action of the novel. One part suspense, one part drama, and wholly satisfying, "Tamara's Child" plumbs the psyche of a dynamic cast of characters, some motivated by self-interest, some by self-sacrifice, some by self-doubt, but all clinging to the hope that they can ultimately wring from life the happiness and fulfillment that has thus far been denied them.

    What actually happens to organizations during gender and organization change endeavors? This book takes an in-depth look at the experience of seven Novib partner organizations in the Middle East and South Asia who undertook the challenge of the Gender Focus Programme. It recounts their analysis of their organization, and the route they chose to follow. The book presents field experiences of managing the politically sensitive agenda of promoting gender equality in the NGOs and negotiating the contradictions between using Organizational Development tools and promoting gender equality.In doing so, it shows how organizational change for gender equality is an integral part of gender mainstreaming processes. As a decade of evidence suggests, gender mainstreaming is vulnerable to becoming technocratic and ineffective. These seven organizations, unable to separate entirely the integral change process from their extrernal work as NGOs, experiences a spillover of gender justice concerns into their work in the field, with a variety of program results.

    "Voices from the Prostate Underground offers excellent insight into the experiences of men and their families who have dealt with and survived prostate cancer. Their testimonies provide a great encouragement for those facing treatment." J. Lynn Martell, Director of Special Services, Radiation Medicine, Loma Linda University Medical Center Men don't talk about Prostate Cancer, so who is a guy supposed to talk to about treatment options and other "guy" issues when he is diagnosed with prostate cancer? Talk to a urologist, and they generally recommend surgery. Talk to a radiation oncologist, and radiation is the best approach. Others health care providers prescribe hormones, "watchful waiting," laparoscopic surgery, cryosurgery, brachytherapy, and more. What doctors recommend is based on their own experiences, training, and professional bias. The "whole story" is not generally available from any one specialist and what you hear from your doctor generally results in more questions than answers. "Voices from the Prostate Underground" includes the stories of men and their families, who have survived prostate cancer through a variety of treatments. The stories are told in their own, unique voices as each man answers the five questions that newly diagnosed men most often ask those who have survived the disease: How were you diagnosed? What did you decide to do? What treatment did you decide on? How did things work out? How did the experience affect your life? All funds raised from the sale of this book will be donated to UsToo and the Slater Research Chair at the Loma Linda University Medical Center to support cancer research and treatment.

    "Up in Flames" is the first comprehensive study of the traditional Chinese craft of paper sculpture: the construction in bamboo and paper of human figures, figures of gods, buildings, and other objects--all intended to be ritually burned. The book documents this ancient craft as it exists today in Taiwan. The fascinating fundamentals of the craft, the tools and materials, as well as the techniques used to construct houses and human figures, never investigated before, are described and illustrated in detail. The written material is augmented by many color photographs showing the objects and the men and women who make them. Although the tradition of burning objects as a part of religious ceremonies is still strong, the traditional paper and bamboo objects are being more and more often replaced by plastic components and whole preprinted cardboard counterparts. The resulting changes in the personal, business, and especially the creative and artistic side of the craft are therefore also addressed.

    Fate is a universal concept. Call it what you may: destiny, luck, kismet or coincidence. The common thread in this fascinating anthology is the presence of fate in everyday lives, a force that intervenes. The stories in this book will make you laugh, some will make you cry, some will amaze you, while still others will inspire and motivate you. But each true account carries the imprint of its author, allowing his or her perspective to light the way to a unique interpretation of fate. While some storytellers simply allow for the presence of destiny or fate, others connect their experiences to a Higher Power, whether Guardian Angel or God or both. No matter your theological stance, by the end of this book, you may be loath to attribute the events recounted here to happenstance. These experiences with fate, some of which were written by the editors, span several decades and cross continents, highlighting the elements of timelessness and universality of the concept of fate. For fate is indeed a timeless concept. The ancient Greeks believed that fate was more powerful than the gods. What do you believe?

Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes a peril and a threat to Rose."--Back cover.
