From the prologue: Seven steps later his foot landed on the battered mat at the base of the iron treads that lead up to the trailer's door. John looked down and noticed that it actually said WELCOME. The only problem was that the 'm' and 'e' were missing. The outline was there but, no me. He half-smiled at the thought. Everything was there but me. He'd felt that way for years.---------- "Quiet Desperation" is the story of a man who has recently suffered the loss of his wife and discovers that his boss is crooked. With the help of his best friend and the spirit of his dead wife he sets out to get on with life and his boss out of the company he helped build.

Most likely, someone you know is living a life of quiet desperation, struggling with feelings of same-gender attraction. In an effort to help Latter-day Saints understand and reach out to those who suffer from this difficulty. Fred and Marilyn Matis discuss how they've dealt with the knowledge of their son Stuart's challenge with same-gender attraction, and how parents and others can reach out with love. In addition, Ty Mansfield discusses his own challenge and how he continues to go forward with faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. "The Lord promised that he will change our hearts, but he didn't say when," writes Mansfield. "He never promised it would happen in mortality. He only said it would happen."

With standardized testing and predetermined subgroups garnering the attention of educational leaders, abused and neglected children have fallen deeper into the crevice of the system. For years these children have been ignored, save the obvious, visible bruises or child-initiated confessions. Because researching children is difficult without parental consent, it is nearly impossible to expose this problem with any level of legitimacy. By combining research from scientific research and the humanities, autobiographical flashbacks fuse with narratives that vividly detail the author's disturbing encounters with abused children as a school administrator. The effect is the realization that public schools unknowingly feed on weaker children beneath the awning of accountability.

"A powerful and timely book from one of the most provocative and engaging voices in contemporary environmental writing." —MICHAEL P. BRANCH, author of How to Cuss in Western When the pandemic struck, nature writer David Gessner turned to Henry David Thoreau, the original social distancer, for lessons on how to live. Those lessons—of learning our own backyard, re–wilding, loving nature, self–reliance, and civil disobedience—hold a secret that could help save us as we face the greater crisis of climate. DAVID GESSNER is the author of Leave It As It Is: A Journey Through Theodore Roosevelt's American Wilderness and the New York Times–bestselling All the Wild That Remains: Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner and the American West. Chair of the Creative Writing Department at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and founder and editor–in–chief of Ecotone, Gessner lives in Wilmington, North Carolina, with his wife, the novelist Nina de Gramont, and their daughter, Hadley.

For everyone looking to find a little extra magic in a life with little to celebrate, Happy Cruelty Day! is here. Beginning on January 1, this book features 365 new holidays, each accompanied by a strange, dark and humorous short story explaining the day you woke up in and how to celebrate it. These 365 daily doses of delight, perversion, and nonsense include "Hire Someone Attractive To Pretend To Love You Day," "Hang on to Your Wide-Eyed Innocence Day," "Sit in Abject Terror Day," and, of course, "Cruelty Day." Far more than just a humor book, Happy Cruelty Day! is like a daily instructional manual written by a psychopath. On one page, the book has you joining a community crime watch group in an effort to make friends (it won't work). Flip the page, and you'll find the details of your attempt to rescue your husband from a POW camp (you'll fail). Flip it again, and Happy Cruelty Day! will have important insight into how best to befriend a runaway teen (offer her some soup). These holidays celebrate everything from that pivotal point in your life when everything changes, to the day you're not going to do anything but sit on the edge of your bed and get very drunk. When people realize they've fallen in love, or when they realize their love was just a lie. And of course, when love of whatever incarnation brings an index finger to clench tight around the trigger of a gun. Raw, ridiculous, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a sharp-edged satire on the subtleties, shallowness, and stupidity of daily life.

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. Henry David Thoreau, Walden What if you could trade your life of quiet desperation for a life of quiet inspiration? If you could sell everything you own and take to the open road in an RV, would you do it? Author Caroline Grimm and her husband, Mike Corthell did just that. In 2018, Grimm was grieving and exhausted, and longing to find more time for what mattered. Together, the couple hatched a plan to leave behind a life that left them feeling overwhelmed and unfulfilled. They sold their house and most of their possessions, bought a travel trailer, and headed out to explore the country. Grimm, a nearly lifelong student of Walden, Henry David Thoreau's masterpiece, drew inspiration and courage from Thoreau's enduring lessons. She insightfully strikes at the heart of the problems of modern life that leave so many feeling a sense of quiet desperation. She asks (and often answers) the questions that lay behind the modern day problems that plague so many of us. Confronting economic inequality, social ills, the American health care crisis and our individual roles in it, the illnesses caused by a lifestyle that fuels a life of fatigue and misery, and the environmental and social disaster of factory farming, she explores the underlying causes of our sense of desperation and despair. As you follow the couple's journey from "sticks and bricks" living to full-time RV living, you'll get a taste for what it's like to downsize, minimize, and economize belongings to find a way to fit two humans, two cats, and a dog into 240 square feet of mobile living space. You'll catch a glimpse of the emotional toll our lives take on us through the constant work and worry and day-to-day just getting by. This is a book about "What ifs." What if we walked away from a life that isn't working for us? What if we worked towards a creating a life of purpose and meaning? What if we questioned everything we've ever been taught about what life is? What if we had the courage and the dogged determination to create a life of peace, joy, adventure, and travel? From the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain in Maine to the desert of New Mexico to the splendor of the Grand Canyon, she searches for her own healing and a new sense of "quiet inspiration." This is the story of their journey so far and the essential truths they discovered along the way.

Lives of Quiet Desperation is a tale set in the Arkansas Delta in the 1950s. A tornado sweeps through the tiny farming community of Bolandsville, leaving in its wake a path of destruction and death. However, the chaos that the storm creates in the lives of the sharecropper families has far-reaching personal consequences. The storm sets in motion a series of events that lead to shattered relationships, chance romances, violent confrontations, and even murder. This novel is an example of the blending of Southern fiction and the art of magical realism. The author, himself the son of an Arkansas sharecropper, has first-hand knowledge of that long-ago time and place. He knows these sharecroppers: their speech, their habits, and the unwritten code of honor which guided their lives. These elements are combined to weave a fascinating and sometimes humorous tale of love, tragedy, suspense, and hope.
