Description:

Why is it that despite overwhelming evidence and fundamental science, some people still don't accept that climate change is real and that human activity is contributing to it?
Is it because the science is not being understood? Is it because it is difficult to accept that humans are capable of changing the climate? Is there a link between climate change scepticism and ideology? Is there a link between the belief in the science and belief in God?
If you know anyone who challenges the science of climate change - or completely denies it's happening at all - then this book is for you, and for them. Don't worry, your friend is human after all, and such behaviour can be explained. A Climate for Denial gives a summary of the reasons your friend is a sceptic.

Description:

It's not everyone's idea of a honeymoon - a 12000 mile flight from Scotland to Australia in a single engine, canvas covered plane. Even less idyllic if the pilot has only 44 hours flying experience and the navigator learned her job via a do-it-yourself course. But George and Kathy Wright from Glasgow did it - eventually.
It took four months of trepidation and resourcefulness, fear and frustration, and delight and innocent blundering through the formalities of four continents. Refuelling in mid-air... landing at secret military airfields... trailed by police... the plane looted... caught up in the sensitivities of politics... marital tensions.
Kathy Wright who, in 1968 was 24, kept a frank and meticulous diary. It is an absorbing, amusing and exciting story of the epic journey across the world of two young and very naive people.

A novella sized piece covering the Ulster troubles, called the Stormont Riots, the street battles and intrigues of Ulster Protestants and IRA.
"John Bryson has the skills of literary journalism, and abundant luck" a Penguin Books copywriter wrote for a back cover, and this was the case in 1986 in Belfast, where I was to launch a book, and stayed on to cover the sectarian war of that year, the worst for many years.

Description:

"These brilliant writers, through their works, never fail to exert their power in spadefuls, and soar to heights of grace and excellence in confronting the great existential dramas of life."
In a collection of passionate, sparkling essays, one of Australia's leading literary critics presents a fresh and exciting ode to Jewish fiction. Rescuing some brilliant texts from the dustbin of oblivion or from culture's short-memory, Abramovich, writing with affection and authority, offers gems of critical appreciation and in-depth discussion of masterpieces and iconic authors such as Nobel Prize Winner S.Y. Agnon, Israel's most celebrated living author Amos Oz, the mesmerising Paul Celan, the incomparable David Grossman, the extraordinary Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, the Israeli "Agatha Christie", and the early pioneers of Hebrew letters.
Sharing his lifetime joy of reading and engagement with the written word, and showcasing his scholarly erudition, Abramovich effortlessly muses on the nature of writing, and takes readers on an intellectual and philosophical journey through grand thematic landscapes such as memory, the Holocaust, identity, man's relationship with God, imagination, family, marriage, death and suffering. A celebration and a tribute to old favourites, this delightful volume of reflections and meditations is sure to ignite a fire in discerning readers' minds, and motivate them to go back to those classics with a renewed sense of excitement. Certain to become a valuable and entertaining guide for anyone who loves Israeli and Jewish fiction, this work will provide inspiration and reason aplenty to turn off the computer or TV and start reading again.

Description:

A World This Size.
You will have a restaurant like this in your city.
And, if you have spent time eating alone in restaurants, you will have felt the reverie of the imagination, which will cause you to scrutinise other diners for clues to their personalities and attribute to them lives you could find interesting. This is the story here.
A little Baroque music struts overhead. Here a man sits by himself. He is waiting on a martini. His fingers drum the cloth. Soon he falls to searching faces at other tables for something to hold his interest. His name is Freddy Unthank. Freddy would be hurt if we were to confuse his somnolent gaze with boredom. He has an eye for foible, and when he comes here (most Thursdays) he chooses his seat for the best view of the room.
Did the Lord Say Anything About a Serpent?
The scene is Paradise. In so far as time meant anything when the biblical world began, it's now around midweek, in the second month ever, and as for humankind, it is small enough that the singular pronouns, You and I, cover everyone there is.
For two voices, a sketch, at the very Beginning of the World.
I Keep Meeting My Grandfather.
Elspeth's grandfather has died. The reading of the will by the family solicitor shocks her parents who expect to be the beneficiaries. GranDoddie, as she has always called him, has left his substantial acreage to Elspeth.
And I hope this is not all Elspeth inherits from me.
Elspeth's parents are prim and conservative. GranDoddie attacks the pretentions of their luncheon guests.
He embarrassed us all. But I kept his silent score, following the points wherever he slammed them with the vacillating eyes of a tennis buff. There was seldom a re-match.
Kindly Death, a Right to Life Protest and a Shy Semite.
A VISITATION of Kindly Death is recorded by the Law List in a glass cabinet beside the sandstone doorway of Court Four in the City Courthouse, the sole item for the day's business, and for many days:
Trial: R v Ali Bashir. (1) Murder (2) Assist Suicide.
An elderly man will soon die of Motor Neuron Disease. He is determined to be present at his own wake. After the party he is found dead. His spouse, a younger Middle Eastern man is charged with his death.

Description:

She's sassy and opinionated - but maybe not the sharpest feeli on four legs.
When Megsy is checked in to the Lap of Luxury Cat Resort, she soon learns there's a lot she doesn't know, like: talent, pedigrees, surfing the Intercat, and where her kisskies went.
But, with the help of her fellow feeli inmates - Raffles, Big Dan, Zsa Zsa, Hamish the Handsome, and The Colonel - she gets a new perspective on life; and new name from cattery owner, Miss Steph.
A.K.A. Fudgepuddle is not a kids' book but is suitable for children - from 6 to 106.
It's a book for Cat People - or deuxjambs, as the feelis call us - of all ages. Even Dog People (or quiffo-lovers) will enjoy it.
With a grown-up sensibility - of ridiculous proportions - the adventures of Fudgepuddle and her feeli friends is a hilarious tour de fur!
