“This is a very enjoyable read – one of sharp contrasts. In fact I found myself dreading the chapters dealing with the orphanage. Thankfully the author used descriptive but not excessively graphic scenes to portray the horrors of those institutions. And she balanced it with delightful humor in the chapters about Jamie’s adult life. The characters are well drawn; the best of which is Rose McFadden. I laughed out loud at some of her dialogs and learned a great new word…”And it’s a terrible thing when a body is incapissitated in such a way.” That one line was worth the whole book!” By Meg

“Though he was resigned to a life of miserable loneliness, some hope still remained for Jamie McCloone. “The Misremembered Man” is the story of two opposites. One is the rugged Jamie, with his cruel history of orphanhood and a sad life; the other is Lydia, a cleanliness next to godliness type, who lives under an oppressive mother. They meet through the newspaper and an intriguing romance begins to bud, in this touching story of companionship set in rural Ireland’s darker times. A top pick for readers seeking a well-written period piece.” By Midwest Book Review

Toilets: a spotter’s guide Review

  • Loos with incredible views, lavish lavatories, outstanding outhouses – all are featured in this pictorial guide to the world’s most stunning toilets. Whether they’re high-tech or arty, amusing or amazing, each toilet has a photo and a description of its location. More than 100 restrooms to remember are featured, from Antarctica to Zambia.
  • As any experienced traveller knows, you can tell a whole lot about a place by its bathrooms. Whatever you prefer to call them – lavatory, loo, bog, khasi, thunderbox, dunny, bathroom, restroom, washroom or water closet – toilets are a (sometimes opaque, often wide-open) window into the secret soul of a destination.
  • It’s not just how well they’re looked after that’s revealing, but where they are positioned and the way they’ve been conceptualised, designed and decorated. Toilets so often transcend their primary function of being a convenience to become a work of art in their own right, or to make a cultural statement about the priorities, traditions and values of the venues, locations and communities they serve.
  • The lavatory is a great leveller – everyone feels the call of nature, every day – but being ubiquitous doesn’t make it uniform. Around the planet (and beyond it, see page 12), toilets have followed various evolutionary pathways to best suit their environment.
  • In these pages you’ll find porcelain pews with fantastic views, audacious attention-seeking urban outhouses, and eco-thrones made from sticks and stones in all sorts of wild settings, from precipitous mountain peaks to dusty deserts. So, wherever you’re reading this, we hope you’re sitting comfortably.

Yuge!: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump Review

  • He tried to warn us. Ever since the release of the first Trump-for-President trial balloon in 1987, Doonesbury’s Garry Trudeau has tirelessly tracked and highlighted the unsavory career of the most unqualified candidate to ever aspire to the White House. It’s all there–the hilarious narcissism, the schoolyard bullying, the loathsome misogyny, the breathtaking ignorance; and a good portion of the Doonesbury cast has been tangled up in it.  Join Duke, Honey, Earl, J.J., Mike, Mark, Roland, Boopsie, B.D., Sal, Alice, Elmont, Sid, Zonker, Sam, Bernie, Rev. Sloan, and even the Red Rascal as they cross storylines with the big, orange airhorn who’s giving the GOP such fits.
  • Garry Trudeau is the “sleazeball” “third-rate talent” who draws the “overrated” comic strip Doonesbury, which “very few people read.” He lives in New York City with his wife Jane Pauley, who “has far more talent than he has.”

“UN-believable. You’ll read a strip from 30 years ago and think it was from yesterday. Trudeau absolutely blasts this egocentric, shallow con man. My favorite line I read recently was “I love my country more than I hate Hillary Clinton.” And I could not agree more. This man is the devil and Trudeau showed his cloven hooves and shallow me-first attitude decades ago.

Inheriting money from your dad does not make you a good businessman or negotiator. Wake up!” By Senor G

“I spent an entire afternoon laughing and enjoying Yuge. It’s crazy to see how much he has NOT changed since the 1980’s. GBT is like a soothsayer, alluding to Trump’s presidential and reality TV show ambitions decades before they happened.” By Tom
