Called ´´our finest black-humorist” by The Atlantic Monthly, Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Now his first and last works come together for the first time in print, in a collection aptly titled after his famous phrase, We Are What We Pretend To Be. Written to be sold under the pseudonym of ´´Mark Harvey,” Basic Training was never published in Vonnegut’s lifetime. It appears to have been written in the late 1940s and is therefore Vonnegut’s first ever novella. It is a bitter, profoundly disenchanted story that satirizes the military, authoritarianism, gender relationships, parenthood, and most of the assumed mid-century myths of the family. Haley Brandon, the adolescent protagonist, comes to the farm of his relative, the old crazy who insists upon being called The General, to learn to be a straight-shooting American. Haley’s only means of survival will lead him to unflagging defiance of the General’s deranged (but oh so American, oh so military) values. This story and its 30ish author were no friends of the milieu to which the slick magazines’ advertisers were pitching their products. When Vonnegut passed away in 2007, he left his last novel unfinished. Entitled If God Were Alive Today, this last work is a brutal satire on societal ignorance and carefree denial of the world’s major problems. Protagonist Gil Berman is a middle-aged college lecturer and self-declared stand-up comedian who enjoys cracking jokes in front of a college audience while societal dependence on fossil fuels has led to the apocalypse. Described by Vonnegut as, ´´the stand-up comedian on Doomsday,” Gil is a character formed from Vonnegut’s own rich experiences living in a reality Vonnegut himself considered inevitable. Along with the two works of fiction, Vonnegut’s daughter, Nanette shares reminiscences about her father and commentary on these two works - both exclusiv... 1. Language: English.

In the mountains of Guanajuato, Mexico, sits a picturesque community favored by artists and tourists. But for American-born Jayne Valseca and her husband, Eduardo, son of a legendary Mexican newspaper publisher, it became a hell on earth when Eduardo was ambushed by strangers and kidnapped, in the summer of 2007. Jayne knew that in Mexico kidnapping was a pervasive and lucrative business - a burgeoning criminal industry with few happy endings. This time the merchandise was her husband. Sealed in a dark seven-by-six, two-feet-wide box, Eduardo lived for seven months on little more than eggshells and chicken bones. He was subjected to the most cruel and humiliating mental and physical torture imaginable. He had no reason to believe he´d ever be found alive. As the ransom escalated, so did the stakes. But Jayne refused to be a pawn in the kidnappers´ sick game. She decided to become a player. If she was to get her husband back alive, she´d have to be more cunning than the kidnappers and be cool, calculated, and determined.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dina Pearlman.

The book offers some natural hair care tips. This publication also offers advice to those who have been natural for less than three years. Based on trial and error, the author, who wears her hair natural, has learned what works for her hair and what does not work. From using a straightening comb on her hair to not getting enough nutrients in her body, she has made a lot of mistakes over the years in regards to her hair. She has learned a valuable lesson: what you eat and drink in turn can reflect how your hair looks. One year she mostly ate vegetables and sometimes would eat fish. That is the year her hair flourished. Also, she consumed Fiji water, which she has found was good for her skin and hair. If you have curly hair or tightly coiled hair, it can sometimes be well...how should this be put: just a pain. In this publication, there are tips on how you can maintain your hair and the author offers some humorous stories about how she has had to deal with her own hair. The author, Alicia Mendsey, also known as Stephanie, has not chemically processed her hair in 10 years. She first transitioned from relaxed to natural in 2007. In February 2008, she had her hair cut short, removing the relaxed ends she had. It was initially a struggle for her to manage her hair. She would go to her hair stylist about four to five times a year. The stylist would style her hair in small two strand twists and sometimes straighten her hair. When Alicia would get her hair straightened, she felt alive. She loved her hair straight, and it was easier to manage. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michelle Cronin.

Venture deep into the heart of finance´s weird and wonderful paradoxes. Dinosaur Derivatives and Other Trades is an entertaining and compelling tour de force highlighting the paradoxes inherent to the modern financial system. Presented as a series of striking case studies, this book explores certain enigmatic or philosophical puzzles in the finance industry; some of these puzzles may seem slightly absurd at first glance, but all are very relevant to the way finance is conducted in the real world. Each story highlights specific hypocrisies or moral dilemmas that lie at the heart of the system, guiding listeners through the challenges of finance by way of innovative and memorable paradigms. Written in clear, accessible language, this book doesn´t claim to offer original financial theory or philosophy as such, but instead deepens the listener´s understanding of the system and stimulates independent consideration of the current state of affairs. The financial world, so often viewed as a rather dull place, is secretly alive with possibilities of strange and sometimes wonderful conundrums. There is the possibility, for instance, of a Manhattan auction house selling derivatives to buy swift-swimming predators known as Megalodons (thought to be extinct for millions of years). This book explores this and other curious propositions to point out the paradoxes of finance. Explore the meaning of ´´value´´ in different contexts Learn what the Old Testament can teach us about risk and uncertainty Examine an alternative take on the 2007/2008 credit crisis Consider how the ´´financial innovation´´ trend impacts the industry To truly understand something, it is necessary to crawl deep into the metaphorical underbelly and have a look around. Dinosaur Derivatives and Other Trades provides the itinerary, and the insightful discussion that stimulates curiosity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cameron Stewart.
