  • I’m Dancing As Fast As I Can

    Barbara had it all: a successful career as an award-winning documentary film maker, a strong relationship, and plenty of friends. But a lingering problem with anxiety drew her into a dangerous Valium addiction. Her story is an honest, gripping look into addiction, her ill-advised “cold-turkey” withdrawal and the hospitalizations that followed, the worst the psychiatric field has to offer, and her painful yet persistent pathway back to functioning. Through it all, Gordon is a beacon of hope, actively choosing life over the alternative, even after journeying to the darkest depths of the human psyche.
    This beautifully written classic is a must read for anyone battling their own psychological demons, anyone in the mental health field, and everyone in need of an inspiring survivor story.
    Praise for I’m Dancing as Fast as I Can:
    “Spellbinding seems too mild a word.” –Detroit Free Press
    “Gordon’s story rings with authenticity.” –Washington Post
    “I can hardly remember the last time I stayed up half the night because I couldn’t stop reading. But that’s what happened with I’m Dancing as Fast as I Can.” –Chicago Tribune

  • Writing in Time

    Schell is writing in time, placing events in their historical context and casting an eye to the future. Another thread that runs through the book is the “virtual takeover of politics by the burgeoning techniques of communication.” Schell chronicles the changes engendered by modern methods of mass communication and the dangers posed by the passive system of representation these methods encourage. Schell’s questions, and proffered answers, reveal how critical a journalist’s analysis of events is to a healthy political sensibility for the country.

  • What is the State of Your Union?

    This book begins with a quiz for couples. The score of readers’ test results will identify strengths or weaknesses in each of the Ten New Laws of Love. This analysis is a functional “Instant Relationship Self-Diagnosis.” Based on the scores from the test, readers will be directed to one or more of the ten chapters, each chapter a synopsis of one of the Ten New Laws of Love.

    The relationship, being a combination and consequence of these strengths or weaknesses, can now be changed or reworked. Couples can now move forward with the awareness of what is and is not right for the relationship. In many ways this book is a primer for the longer and much more comprehensive The New Couple. What Is the State of Your Union serves as a mini-education of The Ten New Laws of Love, the principles that form the foundation of The New Couple.

  • Three Houses

    Angela Thirkell writes of her late Victorian childhood, in which her memory inhabits the three houses which shaped the sensibility later displayed in her beloved Barsetshire novels.

    First, there is her maternal grandparents’ home in Fulham, “The Grange,” where her grandfather, the celebrated Pre-Raphaelite painter Sir Edward Burne-Jones, set the cultivated tone enjoyed by family and friends alike (such as William Morris). Second is her parents’ home in Kensington Square in which the young Angela was surrounded by a bright world of neighbors and acquaintances. At the heart of Thirkell’s reminiscences was the Burne-Jones’s seaside retreat- North End House in Rottingdean- where Thirkell’s grandmother was the presiding genius and her cousin, Rudyard Kipling, lived across the green.
