It hadn't been Rosie's idea - a 'quaint' wedding at her childhood home in the Irish countryside. Nevertheless she finds herself back in Monasterard after a decade away, with her American fiancé on her arm and a smile fixed to her face. As expected, the welcome from her siblings isn't exactly warm. Mary-Pat, the one who practically raised Rosie, is avoiding her. June is preoccupied with maintaining the illusion of her perfect family. And Pius, who still counts the years since their mother left, is hiding from the world. Each of them is struggling with the weight of things unsaid. In the end, it's their father who, on the day of Rosie's wedding, exposes what has remained hidden for so long. And as the O'Connor siblings piece together the secrets at the heart of their family, they begin to forgive the woman who abandoned them all those years ago.

Winner of the British Columbia National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction Finalist for the Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing Finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Non-fiction Finalist for the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction An incredible work of non-fiction that reads like a thriller, All We Leave Behind is the true story of a family fleeing the death sentence of a ruthless warlord, written by the journalist who broke all her own rules to get them to safety. In 2002, Carol Off and a CBC TV crew encountered an Afghan man with a story to tell. Asad Aryubwal became a key figure in their documentary on the terrible power of thuggish warlords who were working arm in arm with Americans and NATO troops. When Asad publicly exposed the deeds of one of the warlords, General Abdul Rashid Dostum, it set off a chain of events from which there was no turning back. Asad, his wife, Mobina, and their five children had to flee their home. The family faced an uncertain future. But their dilemma compelled a journalist to cross the lines of disinterested reporting and become deeply involved. Together, they navigated the Byzantine international bureaucracy and the decidedly unwelcoming policies of Stephen Harper's government until the family finally found a new home. Carol Off's powerful account traces not only one family's journey and fraught attempts to immigrate to a safe place, it also illustrates what happens when a journalist becomes irrevocably caught up in the lives of the people in her story and finds herself unable to leave them behind.

If one were to do a nationwide poll of Indians born after Independence and ask which is the one date they remember most, the answer may well be 25 June 1983, the date on which India won the cricket World Cup. It is often said that cricket in India is like a religion; nothing could be more misleading. Religion has scarred the nation more deeply than anything else. Cricket is the balm that heals. In our collective consciousness, there is nothing quite like cricket. As the most visible expression of national identity, as an obsession or a dream, cricket is the only thing that possibly unites a country as diverse and as contradiction-ridden as India. In this brilliant book, Soumya Bhattacharya shows how we have made this game our own, given it our own colour, our own customs, our own codes. And how cricket in turn has come to permeate every aspect of our public life, from popular culture to politics so that, when a game is on, the rest of life happens strictly between overs.

“A documentary filmmaker and daughter of the late, great New York Times columnist David Carr celebrates and wrestles with her father’s legacy in a raw, redemptive memoir.”—O: The Oprah Magazine (The Best Nonfiction Books Coming Out in 2019) “A breathtaking read . . . a testimony equal parts love and candor. David would have had it no other way.”—Ta-Nehisi Coates, bestselling author of Between the World and Me Dad: What will set you apart is not talent but will and a certain kind of humility. A willingness to let the world show you things that you play back as you grow as an artist. Talent is cheap. Me: OK I will ponder these things. I am a Carr. Dad: That should matter quite a bit, actually not the name but the guts of what that name means. A celebrated journalist, bestselling author (The Night of the Gun), and recovering addict, David Carr was in the prime of his career when he suffered a fatal collapse in the newsroom of The New York Times in 2015. Shattered by his death, his daughter Erin Lee Carr, at age twenty-seven an up-and-coming documentary filmmaker, began combing through the entirety of their shared correspondence—1,936 items in total—in search of comfort and support. What started as an exercise in grief quickly grew into an active investigation: Did her father’s writings contain the answers to the question of how to move forward in life and work without her biggest champion by her side? How could she fill the space left behind by a man who had come to embody journalistic integrity, rigor, and hard reporting, whose mentorship meant everything not just to her but to the many who served alongside him? All That You Leave Behind is a poignant coming-of-age story that offers a raw and honest glimpse into the multilayered relationship between a daughter and a father. Through this lens, Erin comes to understand her own workplace missteps, existential crises, and relationship fails. While daughter and father bond over their mutual addictions and challenges with sobriety, it is their powerful sense of work and family that comes to ultimately define them. This unique combination of Erin Lee Carr’s earnest prose and her father’s meaningful words offers a compelling read that shows us what it means to be vulnerable and lost, supported and found. It is a window into love, with all of its fierceness and frustrations. “Thank you, Erin, for this beautiful book. Now I am going to steal all of your father’s remarkable advice and tell my kids I thought of it.”—Judd Apatow

As the Title reads ‘Walk in with Parkinson Disease- The friend I chose to leave behind’- the journey of my life and how with help and the blessing of God I am able to manage life. Parkinson disease has taught me many things. Moreover, it has taught me how to accept and realize that I have Parkinson disease and I can never live life as a normal person. Parkinson disease narrowed my abilities in life but broadened my preview of life itself. By narrowing my abilities – it became clear this is what I have to do. So my life became clear and without confusion. I know this is what I have to do – how to do it – is the walk I took with my friend. The journey each and every one – have to travel alone to find the light. It is not finding the light out there – or searching for it – it is understanding that the light is inside us. Once we find this – our journey begins. It is here we learn to understand that - ‘life is meant to be lived and not quit.’ It taught me that – why do I consider myself different that others? I realized that all of us are different from others- and have a unique capability to do things. I questioned myself – if that person can do what I do? The answer was no. Then what I am cribbing about. It then struck me that we choose to belief this is what I can do – rather than understanding there is a lot of things we do not know about ourselves. Once we leave our friend behind – life shows us an alternate path for us to choose. ‘Walk in with Parkinson Disease- The friend I chose to leave behind’ makes me learn that I can do more that I thought I could do before. Hope and faith are the guide in our life – gives me faith that one day I will be free from Parkinson.

Many people know they need to "get their affairs in order," but few know what that means, much less how to do it. "Leaving Lightly: Getting Your Affairs in Order So All You Leave Behind is Love" is a simple yet comprehensive guide for creating a process to put your affairs in order. The book concentrates on four subject areas: recording personal and financial information, creating health care and legal documents, deciding postmortem care, and digitally recording personal stories and family history. The book travels lightly and, where appropriate, humorously through often scary terrain. Interspersed throughout the book are anecdotes of people who planned ahead and people who didn't, and the effect these actions had on those they loved. Because of the many options available in end-of-life and postmortem care, the knowledge contained in Leaving Lightly will assist you in becoming a savvy consumer, potentially saving hundreds or thousands of dollars. But perhaps one of the greatest gifts of Leaving Lightly is peace of mind for the person charged with cleaning up your affairs. Armed with the knowledge of what you do and do not want in your end of life care, your Clean Up Person will be able to quickly and efficiently carry out your wishes. Making sure that information is decided and recorded before it is needed is the purpose behind Leaving Lightly.
