An unlikely high school newspaper editor fights to cover a local murder case and learns what is most important in friendship, in journalism, and in life. Lisa Rives had higher expectations for sophomore year. Her beauty queen mom wonders why she can't be more like other 15-year-old girls in their small Alabama town. Lisa's Dad, well, she suspects he's having an affair with a colleague at his top-secret job. Her friend Preethy seems to be drifting away, and Lisa spends her schooldays dodging creepy boys and waiting to graduate. Then she finds herself in charge of her high school newspaper, which is the last thing she wanted--school newspapers are for popular kids and club-joiners, not outcasts like her, and besides, the stories are never about anything you actually want to know. But after accidentally tipping the scales in the school election, then deciding to cover a "real" story--the upcoming execution of a local man charged with murder--and becoming a surprise news story herself, Lisa learns some hard lessons about friendship and truth-telling. As Lisa navigates the dilemmas, challenges, and unintended consequences of journalism, she finds her life--and her convictions--changing in ways she couldn't have imagined. Tell It True is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes devastating, always relatable coming-of-age story about the importance of speaking the truth in a world of denial and fake news.

Christ doesn't see dead-ends. When all I could see was every failed treatment option, every possible avenue of hope closed off or made me worse, and everything I loved and cherished pulled away or permanently altered, Christ revealed his unlimited power by showing me my hope for healing can never be tied to a diagnosis, a specific outcome, or a cure, but only to him. Travel with me through my story from an idyllic childhood, splattered with those poignant, some painful, life-changing events which implanted deep roots of controlled discipline and self-reliance within me. This self-reliant mindset proved useful to overcome all obstacles and to juggle all the challenges of educational pursuits, marriage, kids, a law practice, and life. Until in my early thirties, my health unexpectedly began to decline shortly after reaching the apex of my career as a lawyer. Witness the physical and spiritual transformation provided by Christ after years of the bleakest and most hopeless time in my life battling severe, chronic pain from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. Christ renewed my mind, my language, and my actions as he revealed to me how suffering led to a hyperfocus on the problem, which blinded me to the truth that Christ wasn't limited by what I only saw as possible. I viewed my health as an obstacle to overcome instead of as a divine invitation to push through to a deeper level of faith and unleash his divine purpose and power into my life and the lives of others.

The pub has been at the centre of Irish life for centuries. It has played many roles: funeral home, restaurant, grocery shop, music venue, job centre and meeting place for everyone from poets to revolutionaries. Often plain and unpretentious, it is a neutral ground, a leveller – a home away from home. From the feasts of high kings, through the heady gang-ruled pubs of nineteenth-century New York, right up to the gay bars and superpubs of today, this is an entertaining journey through the evolution of the Irish pub. Our 'locals' have become a global phenomenon: the export of the Irish pub, its significance to emigrants and its portrayal in cinema, television and literature are engagingly explored. The story of the Irish pub is the story of Ireland itself. "Fascinating ... endlessly surprising." – Irish Independent. "Full of brilliant anecdotes, packed with legal, literary, religious and historical bits and pieces that will keep you talking in the pub all night." – Neil Delamere, Today FM. "An enjoyable romp through the ephemera and facts surrounding that most Irish of institutions." – Irish Examiner. "Fascinating ... a great gift." – Mark Cagney, TV3

The result of twenty-five years of research on three continents, Brecht and Company is a revolutionary portrait of one of the world's greatest theater artists -- and the people upon whom he built his reputation. A noted Brecht scholar, John Fuegi traces the evolution of Brecht's parasitic relationships and aggressive ambition through close analysis of diaries, letters, and drafts of the literary works, revealing a man who was personally dazzling, a genius at assembling and directing the plays created in his workshop, but ultimately lacking in literary stamina, for which he depended on his lovers. A landmark study about the life and times of one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century theater, Brecht and Co. will forever change our understanding of Brecht and his oeuvre. "[An] enormous, fascinating biography." -- The New Yorker "One of the most important critical studies of the century." -- New York Magazine
