Home After Dark: A Novel

release date: Sep 11, 2018
Home After Dark: A Novel
Winner of the American Library Association''s Alex Award A Boston Globe Best Book of the Year David Small’s long-awaited graphic novel is a savage portrayal of male adolescence gone awry like no other work of recent fiction or film. Wildly kaleidoscopic and furiously cinematic, Home After Dark is a literary tour-de-force that renders the brutality of adolescence in the so-called nostalgic 1950s, evoking such classics as The Lord of the Flies. Thirteen-year-old Russell Pruitt, abandoned by his mother, follows his father to sun-splashed California in search of a dream. Suddenly forced to fend for himself, Russell struggles to survive in Marshfield, a dilapidated town haunted by a sadistic animal killer and a ring of malicious boys who bully Russell for being “queer.” Rescued from his booze-swilling father by Wen and Jian Mah, a Chinese immigrant couple who long for a child, Russell betrays their generosity by running away with their restaurant’s proceeds. Told almost entirely through thousands of spliced images, once again “employ[ing] angled shots and silent montages worthy of Alfred Hitchcock” (Washington Post, on Stitches), Home After Dark becomes a new form of literature in this shocking graphic interpretation of cinema verité.

The Wandering Beloved

release date: Sep 11, 2015
The Wandering Beloved
Wanna know what the problem is? It’s God. Deep down inside, in that quiet place in our heart and soul, the problem is we don’t know if he is real. I was betrayed by the church, hurt by the leaders and the ones I looked up too, and embarassed about how “Christians” behave. So I walked away. For more than a decade I left it all behind, I didn’t need God. I equated all the hurt and bitterness the church had caused me with God. But that’s not God. After a decade focused on my career, my wealth, my happiness, my desires, I found myself on a wild adventure with God. Through the army, coaching professional hockey in Europe, helping victims of war in Burma, and a long walk in Spain, I slowly began to see the true nature and character of God. He wasn’t into rules and religion, he didn’t want me to memorize the Bible and follow all the traditions, he just wanted my heart. Through my struggle with depression I learned that God is real, not because of some warm fuzzy feeling I had one time, but I actually mathematically concluded that God is real. Want to meet the real Jesus? Want to know if God is really real? Come on an adventure with me.

Stitches
A Publishers Weekly Top Ten Best Book of the Year An Amazon.com Top Ten Best Book of 2009 A Washington Post Book World’s Ten Best Book of the Year A California Literary Review Best Book of 2009 An L.A. Times Top 25 Non-Fiction Book of 2009 An NPR Best Book of the Year, Best Memoir With this stunning graphic memoir, David Small takes readers on an unforgettable journey into the dark heart of his tumultuous childhood in 1950s Detroit, in a coming-of-age tale like no other. At the age of fourteen, David awoke from a supposedly harmless operation to discover his throat had been slashed and one of his vocal chords removed, leaving him a virtual mute. No one had told him that he had cancer and was expected to die. The resulting silence was in keeping with the atmosphere of secrecy and repressed frustration that pervaded the Small household and revealed itself in the slamming of cupboard doors, the thumping of a punching bag, the beating of a drum. Believing that they were doing their best, David’s parents did just the reverse. David’s mother held the family emotionally hostage with her furious withdrawals, even as she kept her emotions hidden — including from herself. His father, rarely present, was a radiologist, and although David grew up looking at X-rays and drawing on X-ray paper, it would be years before he discovered the shocking consequences of his father’s faith in science. A work of great bravery and humanity, Stitches is a gripping and ultimately redemptive story of a man’s struggle to understand the past and reclaim his voice.

The Wandering Leader

release date: Feb 14, 2014
The Wandering Leader
Leadership isn’t about being perfect; it’s about getting things done. In The Wandering Leader, author David Small, an ice hockey coach who has traveled the world, presents his views about being a leader and a man by growing the most important part of your leadership persona—yourself. The Wandering Leader seeks to help you determine how to dream, give you a road map to accomplish your dreams, and supply the courage to keep taking steps forward once that road map has been blown out the window. To guide you in unleashing the great promise inside of you and make you an amazing leader, it discusses seven different areas of your life: career, finances, social, physical, spiritual, intellectual, and family. But most importantly, it focuses on you and what you have to offer. The Wandering Leader is not a typical book on leadership. Using personal examples from a wide range of people—such as military officers, construction workers, and economics specialists—it shows that you can be a leader in many areas of your life—in friendships, business, and family. It’s not about your job or role; it’s about your character and heart, helping you to pick yourself up after you’ve been kicked in the teeth. “Deeply motivated by your astute truth, I have conquered some of my most difficult obstacles and have you to thank.” —Mitch Labreche, helicopter pilot, former BCHL Player

Gardening with Hardy Heathers

release date: Sep 01, 2009
Gardening with Hardy Heathers
The sight of a wild landscape covered with heathers in full bloom is breathtaking, so it is little surprise that people have found ways of introducing these rewarding plants into their gardens. Here they excel, offering color in the drabbest months and a huge diversity of height, habit, and other valuable characteristics in return for modest cultural demands. This comprehensive and highly informative account encompasses the heaths and heathers of the closely related genera Calluna, Daboecia, and Erica, whose shared characteristics and similar cultural requirements make them broadly compatible in a variety of garden situations. These plants have enhanced people''s lives for millennia and a full discussion of their naming, uses and other interactions with humans is explored in detail. A fascinating account of the unique ecological niche they occupy – including their remarkable adaptation to make use of the nitrogen and phosphorus unavailable to most other plants – provides a fitting context for discussion of their specific cultural needs. With more than 700 cultivated varieties of Calluna alone, selecting the right heather for the right place can be daunting. The detailed selection of cultivated hardy heathers conveniently provides gardeners with the best garden performers while further lists allow them to search for heathers for specific qualities, such as heat tolerance, ground cover, or early summer blooming. Design options for displaying heathers at their best in the garden are provided along with advice on spacing, pruning, propagation, pests, and diseases. In this fascinating and beautifully illustrated work, classic wild-collected cultivars are described alongside the latest introductions to produce an invaluable reference that will inspire heather enthusiasts and gardeners for generations to come.

The BIG Metric Ninja Foodi Cookbook

release date: Feb 09, 2021
The BIG Metric Ninja Foodi Cookbook
The Ninja Foodi from Shark Ninja is an incredibly versatile device and the cooking possibilities are endless. Many recipe books already exist for this device but none of them seem to cater for the British, Irish, Australian or European markets... until now that is. The recipes are aimed not at the kitchen gurus or the Ninja experts, rather to the proud new owners of the Foodi. I''ve written the methods out in such a way that no steps are missed out. I don''t use confusing terminology or abbreviations and use my words very carefully. The methods are written for someone who has not had their device for a long time. I only include ingredients that are available to buy from UK supermarkets and every single ingredient has been checked via the Asda and Tesco websites (often in store at Aldi too) to ensure easy sourcing. The recipes are written logically such that they start usually with the preparation steps; namely what needs to be washed, peeled and chopped before any heat is applied to the ingredients. When I need you to boil a kettle, I will tell you five minutes before you need boiling water in the recipe. Recipes include: - Spicy chicken casserole - Sweet and sour chicken - Cottage & Shepherd''s pie - Thai green chicken curry - Beef curry - Irish beef stew - Full English breakfast - Vegetarian Asian noodles with lemongrass - Lancashire veggie hotpot - Toad in the hole with gravy - Cheese & chive scones - Fruit scones - Marble cake - Carrot cake - Leek & potato soup - Sweet potato & onion soup - ... and so many more. Since the device is so versatile BUT is just one device, recipes are split between main courses, main course components, side dishes, soups and desserts, meaning that access to a kitchen is required for many of the recipes. The Author assumes that the user has access to basic kitchen equipment, such as a refrigerator, a sieve or colander, sharp knives, a stove, a baking tin, a frying pan and saucepans, although many of the recipes do not require any further equipment. Many of the recipes found within will be more familiar to the user of this cookbook, but they have been tweaked or reimagined so that they fit to the Ninja Foodi 7-in1 multi-cooker and many recipes will be completely new. Many recipes also include full colour photographs but not every recipe, due to space and page count limitations, which keep the price of this book down. An index of ingredients is also at the end of the book, making it easier to locate recipes based on what''s in your refrigerator. This book is available in printed formats, a colour version with the green cover and a black-and-white version with a brown cover. While the books are identical in terms of content, some users would rather pay more for colour photographs whereas for other users, the price is more important. "I hope you get as much joy from this book as I did putting it together, well, and eating the creations. If you can spare a few minutes, please write a short review so that others know what you like or dislike about the book".

The Ninja Foodi from Shark Ninja is an incredibly versatile device and the cooking possibilities are endless. Many recipe books already exist for this device but none of them seem to cater for the British, Australian or European markets... until now that is.
