From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a novel about a struggling writer who gets his big break, with a little help from the most famous woman in America. After years of trying to make it as a writer in 1990s New York City, James Smale finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jackie--or Mrs. Onassis, as she's known in the office--has fallen in love with James's candidly autobiographical novel, one that exposes his own dysfunctional family. But when the book's forthcoming publication threatens to unravel already fragile relationships, both within his family and with his partner, James finds that he can't bring himself to finish the manuscript. Jackie and James develop an unexpected friendship, and she pushes him to write an authentic ending, encouraging him to head home to confront the truth about his relationship with his mother. Then a long-held family secret is revealed, and he realizes his editor may have had a larger plan that goes beyond the page... From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a funny, poignant, and highly original novel about an author whose relationship with his very famous book editor will change him forever--both as a writer and a son.

From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus and The Editor comes a warm and deeply funny novel about a once-famous gay sitcom star whose unexpected family tragedy leaves him with his niece and nephew for the summer. Patrick, or Gay Uncle Patrick (GUP, for short), has always loved his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant. That is, he loves spending time with them when they come out to Palm Springs for weeklong visits, or when he heads home to Connecticut for the holidays. But in terms of caretaking and relating to two children, no matter how adorable, Patrick is honestly a bit out of his league. So when tragedy strikes and Maisie and Grant lose their mother and Patrick's brother has a health crisis of his own, Patrick finds himself suddenly taking on the role of primary guardian. Despite having a set of "Guncle Rules" ready to go, Patrick has no idea what to expect, having spent years barely holding on after the loss of his great love, a somewhat-stalled career, and a lifestyle not-so-suited to a six- and a nine-year-old. Quickly realizing that parenting--even if temporary--isn't solved with treats and jokes, Patrick's eyes are opened to a new sense of responsibility, and the realization that, sometimes, even being larger than life means you're unfailingly human. With the humor and heart we've come to expect from bestselling author Steven Rowley, The Guncle is a moving tribute to the power of love, patience, and family in even the most trying of times.

Tracking The Trade Of Octopus Across East Africa And Onto The Global Market Challenges To Marine Stewardship Council Certification Ambitions

In Kenya and Tanzania octopus are a common food, and increasingly, a source of economic security as demand for octopus from international markets grow. Both Kenya and Tanzania’s octopus fisheries managers are interested in seeking Marine Stewardship Council certification in the future. However, little is known about the sustainability and market challenges faced by exporting actors and middlemen– key links between small-scale octopus fishers and their global markets. In this analysis, we synthesize the perspectives of exporters, middlemen, and key informants in order to provide the first available assessment of potential sustainability barriers both nations could face as they consider engaging with Marine Stewardship Council certification. We find that presently the Marine Stewardship’s three sustainability principles – sustainable stocks, reducing environmental impacts, and effective fisheries management are challenged by including, scarcity of product, the informal trade of immature octopus from Tanzania to Kenya and to the local market; and insufficient funding for management. Additionally, we found that Southern Tanzanian traders and agents are now buying octopus from Mozambique traders, so that trade volumes mask to some degree the extent of declining catch levels in Tanzania. This information will help local fisheries managers and interested organizations in assessing the viability and practicality of certification at this time.

HIDDEN IDENTITIES, SCANDALOUS SECRETS… DEADLY ATTRACTION. Frederique Murcheson’s introduction into society hasn’t gone smoothly—some would even call it a disaster. Only Freddie considers her debut a success. Her scheme to become a makesmith has gone off flawlessly. The only thing that could upset her plans now would be if someone discovered that brilliant tinker Fred Merchant is, in fact, a lady in disguise. Wooing a spoiled heiress is not exactly Barnabas Smith-Grenville’s idea of high espionage. However, considering his brother disappeared on the job, supposedly into the most iniquitous of opium dens, he cannot expect much better. At least the assignment will afford him time to search for his brother, whom he suspects is in spy-related trouble rather than a drug-addled haze. But when Freddie proves to be both irresistible and the key to the answers he seeks, Barnabas finds himself not only entwined in a scandalous mystery involving lethal submersibles and deranged dirigibles, but also in a dangerous game of the heart…

EVERYONE HAS AWE INSPIRING CREATIVITY to give the world, including you. Dolores Del Leon didn't believe she had anything to give anyone. A down-on-her-luck artist, Dolores suffers from scarcity thinking that keeps her creativity buried and her bank account dwindling. Insecurity holds her back from her long-held dream to write a novel. One day, everything changes. Dolores meets a mysterious, wise woman in a pink sari on her walking trail who says, "Hi, I'm Maya-your soul. I'm here to blow your mind." With Maya's help, Dolores lands a highly creative, six-figure job in San Francisco. As Dolores sees the truth of the limiting stories of her past: her mother's violent discipline and growing up in the shadow of her father's devastating depression from PTSD, she harnesses an untapped creative power within. Maya reimagines Dolores' life into the fearless and amazing expression it's meant to be, complete with miracles-and she can do the same for you. CALLING DOLORES is a story about creation. Dolores becomes a powerful creator in this world when she adores her dark side and cherishes her wild child imagination-even when it's terrifying. This is one magical realism journey you won't want to miss. Books like CALLING DOLORES: Similar to THE ALCHEMIST, by Paolo Coelho, a wise guide helps Dolores realize her true self by following the call of her heart. Vivid descriptions about spiritual growth and creative process are found in CALLING DOLORES-as in MEN, MONEY AND CHOCOLATE, by Menna Van Praag. Like, FAITHFUL, by Alice Hoffman, CALLING DOLORES captures the desire to save the world despite great losses. CALLING DOLORES has the emotional depth of LILY AND THE OCTOPUS, by Steven Rowley. If you enjoy meditation, spiritual symbols and talismans to invoke magic as in THE MAGIC MALA, by Bob Olsen, you'll enjoy CALLING DOLORES.

THE OCTOPUS MAN tells the story of Tom, once an outstanding law student, now living in East Sussex and lost in the machinery of the British mental health system. Opening with a swirling, compulsive diatribe, Tom comes quickly to confirm what we readers suspect: that he is not entirely alone. He hears the voice of Malamock, the Octopus God - part-comforter, part-autarch, part-guide. After Tom is coerced into a drugs trial, his loving sister and the medical profession celebrate the loss of this voice. However, Tom's own sense of relief soon turns to despair. Once he was Jacob, wrestling with the angel. Now he is just Tom, struggling on benefits. Tom decides to get his voice back. Deeply moving and tragi-comic, The Octopus Man takes us into the complex and disturbing world of voice-hearing in a bravura literary performance that asks the fundamental questions about belief, meaning, and love.

The stretch of land known as “East of the Cooper,” featuring the charming town of Mount Pleasant, is interwoven with innumerable waterways; these waters pulsate with the ebb and flow of tides like a network of arteries, veins, and capillaries connecting to the living heart that is the sea. Mount Pleasant’s location on the Charleston harbor and its deep water access has ensured that the sea has played a major role in the lives of its residents, providing thriving maritime industries that are at once historic and contemporary. East Cooper: A Maritime Heritage is a celebration of those industries and the families and vessels that have contributed to this vital part of Lowcountry culture. Throughout history, indigenous peoples, colonists, plantation owners, and seafood industry entrepreneurs have traversed the miles of rivers, marshy creeks, and coastlines of the East Cooper area. This collection of images demonstrates the ingenuity and artistry of these people whose descendants shared their pasts with the authors as generously as their ancestors shared their skills and intimate relationships with the local waters.
