5. Juan Criollo - Carlos Loveira

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £18.61  - Click book title for availability and further details

There are three situations in which you may find yourself planning a funeral and hence reading this book: • A loved one has passed away suddenly; • A loved one has been diagnosed as terminally ill; • You wish to pre-plan your own funeral. Despite the fact that human beings have a 100% mortality rate, most people in Ireland act as if even talking about end-of-life planning causes people to die! A funeral is both a beginning and an ending, where the end symbolises that the journey from birth to death has been completed and the beginning symbolises the recovery and renewal process for the loved ones still living. The main purpose of this book is to encourage conversation about death, dying, funerals and loss in Ireland today and, hopefully, to open your minds to the endless possibilities there are when it comes to funerals. It aims to inspire independent individuals to celebrate and take control of the last memory they will leave loved ones.

13. Safe Suicide Narratives, Essays, and Meditations (Large Print 16pt) - DeWitt Henry

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Against a background of suburban Philadelphia in the 1950s, and the family secret of his father's alcoholism, Henry comes of age as the youngest of four children. He rejects his father's course in managing the family chocolate factory, and goes on to college, becoming a writer and teacher. When Henry marries, and becomes a father himself, he is impacted by the social revolutions of the 1970s, and struggles to avoid his father's flaws. He leads a literary life in Boston, founds the literary magazine Ploughshares, and befriends novelist Richard Yates. During the 1980s, Henry suffers the deaths of his parents, infertility, rejections of his work, and setbacks in his teaching career. In the 1990s, while his daughter and adopted son are swept up into trials of adolescence and young adulthood, and as his wife grieves the deaths of friends and family, Henry confronts a spiritual abyss similar to his father's, and learns to surrender to life, to love, to aging and mortality.
By turns lyrical, quirky, confessional, and experimental in form, Henry's essays build into an affirming and generous vision. While addiction, the uses of imagination, a passion for literature, and issues of heart and soul are key motifs, a bungee jump becomes Henry's central metaphor: ''isn't this life? isn't this art? We live and trust in our safe suicides.''

Largeprint Our price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

In May of 2012, Janine di Giovanni travelled to Syria; she began reporting from both sides of the conflict, witnessing its descent into one of the most brutal conflicts in recent history. Speaking to those directly involved in the war, di Giovanni relays the personal stories of rebel fighters thrown in jail; of children and families forced to watch loved ones taken and killed by regime forces.

It is an unforgettable testament to human resilience in the face of devastating, unimaginable horrors.
