Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Dr. Zol Szabo chose public health for its noble ideals and predictable hours. He never expected to be intimidated by the Prime Minister's Office, roughed up by the RCMP, or threatened by the Hamilton mob.
Though Zol and his team have investigated every centimetre of Camelot Lodge, a residence for healthy seniors blessed with generous pensions and high - ranking political connections, the source of the converted mansion's spate of fatal food poisonings remains elusive. As the death count rises, the outbreak threatens Zol's beloved grandfather Art Greenwood, a military veteran, engineering genius, and piano whiz. The Mounties muscle in, and Zol's boss threatens him with exile to North Overshoe. Zol's friend and colleague Hamish Wakefield, obsessed with microbes and car washes, discovers dangers at the Lodge that make the rabid bats in the turret and the dumpster - diving cook seem like minor indiscretions.
As Zol and Hamish struggle with the scientific details, Zol's private - eye girlfriend Colleen tails potential suspects, and the health unit's epidemic specialist Natasha Sharma sifts through mountains of disappointing data. It takes Art Greenwood, marshalling the insights of his silver - haired companions, to expose the deaths for what they are: a string of murders. Decades after wars are over, peace is not as simple as a comfy chair in Camelot.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Following in the tradition of Ghost Rider and Traveling Music, Rush drummer Neil Peart lets us ride with him along the backroads of North America, Europe, and South America, sharing his experiences in personal reflections and full - color photos. Spanning almost four years, these 22 stories are open letters that recount adventures both personal and universal - from the challenges and accomplishments in the professional life of an artist to the birth of a child. These popular stories, originally posted on Neil's website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector's volume.
Fans will discover a more intimate side to Neil's very private personal life and will enjoy his observations of natural phenomena. At one point, he anxiously describes the birth of two hummingbirds in his backyard; at the same time, his wife is preparing for the birth of their daughter - a striking synchronicity tenderly related to readers.
A love of drumming, nature, art, and the open road threads through the narrative, as Neil explores new horizons, both physical and spiritual. This is the personal, introspective travelogue of rock's foremost drummer, enthusiastic biker, and sensitive husband and father. Far and Away is a book to be enjoyed again and again, like letters from a distant friend.

9. Augustine in Carthage and Other Poems (Large Print 16pt) - Alessandro Porco

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Augustine in Carthage, and Other Poems is the daring new collection of poetry from Alessandro Porco. Equally crude and charming, locker - room macho and sensitive, these poems are always singularly marked by formal ingenuity and stylistic lan. A poetry that gleefully articulates the possibilities of a 21st century balls - deep masculinity, Porco's new collections begins with its most important work, ''Augustine in Carthage,'' a trans - historical re - imagining of Book III of St. Augustine's Confessions, which includes (among other things) philosophizing strippers, Tampico bombers, rabbit holes, coprology, and comic - book heroism. But for all its bombast ''Augustine in Carthage'' examines, quite seriously, ideas related to the experience of experience, the morality of poetry, and the hypocrisy of spiritual conversion. The book ends with an equally significant suite of depraved yet learned limericks: Porco's perverse star shines in this unprecedented contribution to Canadian letters, exploring myriad filthy matters of heart. Augustine in Carthage, and Other Poems also includes translations of Italian poetry, re - mixes of classic English poems, performance pieces, tender love poems, and - if you would believe - even a short pornographic novel. Reminding readers that through Tradition the strange and new emerges, this is a deeply - felt and original collection, a work that understands (as its epigraph, in the words of Diderot, insists) ''there is a bit of testicle at the bottom of our most sublime feelings and our purest tenderness.''

10. Reading the Bible Backwards (Large Print 16pt) - Robert Priest

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Reverse engineering the word, meme splicing, morpheme replacement therapy, phonetic modifications: these are some of the techniques in play throughout Reading the Bible Backwards, the lyrical thought experiments that make up this eagerly anticipated new collection of poems by Robert Priest. By throwing the Bible and other cultural narratives on the turntable and spinning them backwards, Priest unleashes surprisingly new but strangely familiar music and meaning. Whether the movements are sideways, inverted, or omni - directional, his satire has never been sharper - or darker. Ultimately, though, Priest's lyric voice has never been more finely tuned or elegant, especially in the wonderfully groundbreaking ''I Love You Forwards'' poems that afford this book its remarkable balance.

Take Charge of Your Talent presents three keys that you can use to determine your own career destiny. You'll begin by gaining a fresh perspective on your aspirations and opportunities through a carefully structured conversation with your chosen Talent Catalyst - a coworker, relative, or friend. Then you'll discover a host of ways to accelerate through obstacles, keep your hopes and energy high, and turn challenges into opportunities. Finally, you'll put it all together and transform your knowledge and skills into tangible assets and a personal brand that give you room to grow and multiply the payoffs for yourself and your organization.

17. Sacred Ground Pluralism, Prejudice, and the Promise of America (Large Print 16pt) - Eboo Patel

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £26.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In the decade following the attacks of 9/11, suspicion and animosity toward American Muslims has increased rather than subsided. Alarmist, hateful rhetoric once relegated to the fringes of political discourse has now become frighteningly mainstream, with pundits and politicians routinely invoking the specter of Islam as a menacing, deeply anti-American force. In Sacred Ground, author and renowned interfaith leader Eboo Patel says this prejudice is not just a problem for Muslims but a challenge to the very idea of America. Patel shows us that Americans from George Washington to Martin Luther King Jr. have been 'interfaith leaders,' illustrating how the forces of pluralism in America have time and again defeated the forces of prejudice. And now a new generation needs to rise up and confront the anti - Muslim prejudice of our era. To this end, Patel offers a primer in the art and science of interfaith work, bringing to life the growing body of research on how faith can be a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division and sharing stories from the frontlines of interfaith activism. Patel asks us to share in his vision of a better America - a robustly pluralistic country in which our commonalities are more important than our differences, and in which difference enriches, rather than threatens, our religious traditions. Pluralism, Patel boldly argues, is at the heart of the American project, and this visionary book will inspire Americans of all faiths to make this country a place where diverse traditions can thrive side by side.
