I'll Be Here All Week

by Ward Anderson

"Ward Anderson flays open the perceived rock star glamour of stand-up comedy to show us how it really is."--Aisha TylerFalling in love is like stand-up comedy. You have to be crazy to do it...Spence is a stand-up comedian whose claim to fame is a one-time appearance on The Late Late Show. Eight years ago. Since then, he's been living on the road, working in clubs like The Comedy Crib or The Funny Farm or The Laff Shack--if he's lucky. More often than not, his agent lands him gigs in country western bars. On a good night, he gets free drinks; on a bad night, he offends the audience with dirty jokes. Spence's ex-wife thinks he should find a nice girl and settle down. His ex-wife's husband thinks he should stop having his mail sent to their house. What does Spence think? That trying to have a relationship on the road is no laughing matter. Especially when he meets Sam...She's smart, she's beautiful, and she's Canadian--but she's not putting up with his schtick. Sam wants Spence to drop the jokes and be himself, which is hard for a man who's funny for a living. But the closer they get, the more successful Spence becomes. Can a stand-up comic live happily ever after with the girl of his dreams...without it ending in a punchline? "I'll Be Here All Week does more than offer a window into the life of a stand-up comic. Any reader would feel like they are actually on that stage, living the life and hoping that they'll get out alive. Underneath it all is a love story that is sweet and funny." --Ophira Eisenberg, standup comic and author of Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy

I'll Be The Parent, You Be The Child

by Paul Kropp

I'll Be the Parent, You Be the Child leaves theories behind and gives parents of school-age children practical approaches for handling fundamental child-rearing issues.

Next he tackles specific, topical problems that concern parents most, offering advice that often runs counter to fashion but that parents will cheer. Topics include praise and its dangers; quality time, and why it never works; privacy, and why too much of it is a bad thing; allowance, and the true purpose of giving a child his own money; and much more.This is a bracing, often humorous, book that debunks easy, TV-style parenting and provides down-to-earth problem-solving that parents can really use, with lots of real-life examples.

I'll Be Right There

by Kyung-Sook Shin

How friendship, European literature, and a charismatic professor defy war, oppression, and the absurd Set in 1980s South Korea amid the tremors of political revolution, I'll Be Right There follows Jung Yoon, a highly literate, twenty-something woman, as she recounts her tragic personal history as well as those of her three intimate college friends. When Yoon receives a distressing phone call from her ex-boyfriend after eight years of separation, memories of a tumultuous youth begin to resurface, forcing her to re-live the most intense period of her life. With profound intellectual and emotional insight, she revisits the death of her beloved mother, the strong bond with her now-dying former college professor, the excitement of her first love, and the friendships forged out of a shared sense of isolation and grief. Yoon's formative experiences, which highlight both the fragility and force of personal connection in an era of absolute uncertainty, become immediately palpable. Shin makes the foreign and esoteric utterly familiar: her use of European literature as an interpreter of emotion and experience bridges any gaps between East and West. Love, friendship, and solitude are the same everywhere, as this book makes poignantly clear.
