Condition: clean copy.Content: When the irascible Lord Darracott's elder son dies unexpectedly, the noble family must accept their estranged Yorkshire cousin as heir apparent. They are convinced he will prove to be a sadly vulgar person, but nothing could have prepared the beleaguered family for the arrival of Major Hugo Darracott. His clever and beautiful cousin Anthea is sure there's more to the gentle giant than Hugo's innocent blue eyes and broad Yorkshire brogue would lead one to believe. But even she doesn't guess what he's capable of, until a family crisis arises and only Hugo can preserve the family's honor, leading everybody on a merry chase in the process.374 pages.

Description:
This book is more than a how-to for writers and aspiring writers, more than a memoir of teaching, it is a deeply felt and impassioned plea for the necessity of writing in our lives. The author wisely reminds us, 'Writing is the cure for the disease of living. Doing it may sometimes feel like an escape from the world, but at its best moments it is an act of rescue.'

Condition: clean copy.Content: Paul Osborne is spiraling out of control. Full of drugs and booze and self-hate, he has washed up in Sydney, where he has a walk-up in Kings Cross, a bad case of sunstroke, and an even worse reputation at the local bars. But now his former boss from the Auckland City Police Department has tracked him down and wants Osborne back on the job. Jack Fitzgerald, a former colleague and Osborne's only real friend on the force, has committed suicide in the middle of an important investigation. And despite his current state, Osborne, once a tenacious detective, is the only one qualified to take over the investigation. Osborne has no interest in playing policeman anymore but returns to Auckland at the behest of his captain for one reason and one reason only:he's sure that Fitzgerald couldn't have killed himself and he's determined to find his murderers.290 pages.

Description:
Utz collects Meissen porcelain with a passion. His collection, which he has protected and enlarged through both WWII and Czechoslovakia's years of Stalinism, numbers more than 1000 pieces, all crammed into his two-room Prague flat. Upon his death, the porcelain becomes the property of the state. Utz is allowed to leave the country each year, and although he has considered defection, he always returns. He cannot take his precious collection with him, but he cannot leave it either. And so Utz is as much owned by his porcelain as it is owned by him as much a prisoner of the collection as of the Communist state.
