This is the first collection of short stories in the Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mystery Series. Originally published as serialized monthly installments in Irish Dancing and Culture Magazine, they feature Irish Dancer-Girl Detective, Liffey Rivers, solving crimes and mysteries within a backdrop of the exciting world of Irish step dancing. In "The Mystery of the Missing Novice," Liffey notices that there are two unrelated young dancers at an Irish dance competition (feis) who look like identical twins. When one of them goes missing, Liffey's intuition and attention to detail bring about the safe return of the missing novice. In "The Case of the Clumsy Clowns," Liffey suspects that a group of klutzy clowns performing at a local church, billing themselves as 'The Joyful Jesters, might be up to something more than entertaining their audience. “The Mystery of the Temporary Trophy,” finds Liffey at a feis in New York with her flaky Aunt Jean who is suffering from Post Traumatic Bling Syndrome. Liffey observes that one of the perpetual trophies to be awarded at this feis looks suspiciously like the ancient Derrynaflan Chalice she has seen before in a Dublin museum. In “The Werewolves of Ossory,” Liffey rescues a dancer from Ireland who has traveled alone to the Seattle Halloween Feis burdened with a centuries old family curse.

Liffey Rivers' world is changed forever when she begins meditating daily on the ground between the two old ginkgo trees in her backyard. Voices coming from underneath her, earth tremors, the discovery of an ancient Native American effigy, a mysterious Catholic nun in a white habit floating above her like wispy smoke from a chimney. Almost extinct box turtles are in her yard everyday and there is a mysterious air quality problem in Mineral Point with no apparent cause. When high school students are terrorized by what appears to be a vampire, waiting for their school bus early one morning, the Chief of Police becomes involved and discovers that a threatening poem, a box turtle and a warning of retribution written in Japanese, has been deposited in The Foundry Books' pagoda-like haiku box on the bookstore's front porch. Liffey Rivers soon realizes that she is facing an unimaginable crisis in what has, up until now, been a safe place to live and hide.

The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Theater collects a critical mass of border-crossing scholarship on the intersections of dance and theatre. Taking corporeality as an idea that unites the work of dance and theater scholars and artists, and embodiment as a negotiation of power dynamics with important stakes, these essays focus on the politics and poetics of the moving body in performance both on and off stage. Contemporary stage performances have sparked global interest in new experiments between dance and theater, and this volume situates this interest in its historical context by extensively investigating other such moments: from pagan mimes of late antiquity to early modern archives to Bolshevik Russia to post-Sandinista Nicaragua to Chinese opera on the international stage, to contemporary flash mobs and television dance contests. Ideologically, the essays investigate critical race theory, affect theory, cognitive science, historiography, dance dramaturgy, spatiality, gender, somatics, ritual, and biopolitics among other modes of inquiry. In terms of aesthetics, they examine many genres such as musical theater, contemporary dance, improvisation, experimental theater, television, African total theater, modern dance, new Indian dance theater aesthetics, philanthroproductions, Butoh, carnival, equestrian performance, tanztheater, Korean Talchum, Nazi Movement Choirs, Lindy Hop, Bomba, Caroline Masques, political demonstrations, and Hip Hop. The volume includes innovative essays from both young and seasoned scholars and scholar/practitioners who are working at the cutting edges of their fields. The handbook brings together essays that offer new insight into well-studied areas, challenge current knowledge, attend to neglected practices or moments in time, and that identify emergent themes. The overall result is a better understanding of the roles of dance and theater in the performative production of meaning.

Andrea knows what it's like to be pretty. Thanks to her gorgeous, drug-addicted mother, she also knows where pretty can lead... At 16, Andrea is yanked from the safety of her Gram's home and dropped into the backwoods of Ohio, where she's coerced into working for her mother's drug-dealing boyfriend, Judd. Unwilling to give up on her college dreams, Andrea spends her days trying to stay on the honor roll, and her nights packaging and delivering drugs. Judd is violent and manipulative, and Andrea often goes to bed with an empty stomach and a hardening heart. The one bright spot in Andrea's life is a budding friendship with a charismatic girl named Chloe and her handsome cousin, Brick. These stolen moments of teenage normalcy make Andrea yearn for a way out, but fear and a sense of responsibility to her mother pull her back in. When things with Judd take a darker turn than she can bear, Andrea devises a plan to save herself. But freedom may cost her everything—and everyone—she cares about... Gritty, heartfelt, and suspenseful, All Out of Pretty explores the complexities of self-preservation and addiction as well as the pain, and beauty, of letting go. It will appeal to fans of Sara Zarr and Sarah Dessen.

Embraces the work of writers working in theatrical traditions ranging from the classic well-made play to the most radical avant-garde pieces. This variety is indicative of the fact that this period is one of the most important in British drama, comparable to the late-Elizabethan/Jacobean and post-Restoration eras in terms of the quantity and quality of new work and surpassing both of them in the sheer variety of theatrical offerings.

Nice girls do not yell at men. We are supposed to take whatever is dished out at us and smile in return. No matter how awful. Our mothers taught us this and then our churches, schools, political and cultural institutions reinforced it. Nice girls keep their mouths shut. No more. In “You Dirty Rotten Filthy Pig” Allyson Moore finally finds her voice and when she does, people are shocked. Taken from incidents in her own life Allyson humorously, often acerbically shares the things that she wished that she could have said to the men in her life, but did not. Is there something that you wish that you could have said to a husband, lover or boyfriend? Read what Allyson has and perhaps you will too.
