See the world like you never have before with Michael J. Hawron's engaging new memoir, Entertaining Detours. This fascinating collection of individual chapter-length anecdotes are both funny and poignant...but always heartfelt. The adventure begins with a chance email encounter as Hawron is planning a return trip to Hong Kong with his son and daughter. As a young MIT student in the early 1970s, he launches a personal expedition around the world-one that ultimately takes him to more than thirty countries in five different continents over the span of three decades. One of those countries is Hong Kong, a place that makes an indelible impression on him-one he wishes to share with his grown children. While planning the trip, he learns the family that has moved into his old home in Hong Kong has developed an environmental foundation to preserve the area-and the email exchange between them soon becomes the catalyst for Hawron's memoir. As the book title suggests, however, life has a way of throwing in unexpected detours, and a devastating one occurs just three months into the memoir's creation. Undeterred, Hawron completes his narrative...and manages to bring his journey full circle.

The original The Road Less Travelledspent more than ten years on the bestseller lists and is one of the biggest-selling self-help books of all time. In this wonderfully wise and accessible sequel M. Scott Peck delves more deeply into the issues that confront and challenge all of us in the modern world: blame and forgiveness; sexuality and spirituality; death and the meaning of life; families and relationships; accepting responsibility and growing up. Writing throughout with insight and sensitivity, he draws on his own extensive experience -- both professional and personal -- to challenge false assumptions, suggest a way forward and demonstrate that personal change is always possible, no matter how difficult and complex the journey.

The culmination of a lifetime of counselling, lecturing and writing, M. Scott Peck's major work leads us to a deeper awareness of how to live rich, fulfilling lives in a world fraught with stress, worry and anxiety. Writing with a depth of understanding that comes with the seasoned perspective of age, Dr Peck continues the journey of spiritual growth that began with The Road Less Travelled, one of the most influential personal development books of modern times. To the famous opening line of that book - 'Life is difficult' he now adds 'Life is complex'. But the greatest challenge, he reminds us, is to learn to deal with life's conflicts, problems and paradoxes to find the true simplicity that lies on the other side of complexity. The journey to serenity and inner peace, Dr Peck writes, can only be made with increasing self-awareness and social awareness. There are no easy answers for complex problems. The work of learning and spiritual growth is hard. And yet he shows us that there is a way to think with integrity, to know the difference between good and evil, to overcome narcissism, to love and be loved, to live with paradox, to accept the consequences of our actions all through life, and to come to terms with dying and death.

A horn is an instrument either for protection or destruction. The "horn" in the Horn of Africa has for so long turned inward, and on its people, thus victimizing those it was supposed to defend. The ensuing internecine bloodletting has thrown the region into an abyss out of which it is still struggling to emerge. Much of the story of this abyss is captured in social, political, economic, and literary treatises written by indigenous and international experts. Rarely, however, has there been a single volume that brings together keen analyses of the expressive arts of Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, and Sudan. The Road Less Traveled is the first book of its kind. It brings together in the same volume essays on the literatures of the Horn of Africa written by renowned regional and international scholars. All the countries in the region, their major writers, and the genres through which the people in the Horn express themselves are given careful attention. The volume also includes essays that traverse borders, and/or transgress generic delineations/delimitations. The essays in the volume attest to a simple fact, namely, that through the arts humans weave a labyrinthine system of symbolic representations that bear witness to lives lived or imagined. And while in the Horn of Africa catastrophes may abound, the calamity that besets this region can equally be explained through its antiphony: the perseverance and cosmic, albeit cautious, optimism of its people. A horn, after all, is also a way of making music.

NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES A Warning from the Publisher: If you have come this far, it is likely too late. Readers who have experienced the first nine volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket are usually so weakened by their dreadful knowledge of the Baudelaire orphans' story that they spend most of their time moaning and weeping, and have no strength to read The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, or The End. If, by chance, your moaning and weeping is more or less under control, there is no need to further risk your physical, emotional, and literary health by reading the four remaining volumes in the series. It would be better to regain your strength by spending your time indulging in less alarming activities, such as whistling or making cupcakes for the elderly. After all, this collection contains all of the calamities in the last four volumes of A Series of Unfortunate Events, including abandoned condiments, cigarette smoking, a shocking revelation, a ridiculous laugh, a fearsome storm, a herd of wild sheep, a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents, another shocking revelation, and Phil. There is no need to expose yourself to such atrocities, not after all you've been through already.

Nirip on the cusp of fifty is not happy with his life. His father is an ogre and his mother a witch. He is not happy with that either. His sort of half-sister is a sort of half-man. A really close relative turns out to be a serial killer. He is not happy sleeping with his chauffeur's wife. Neither is she. Then, for his amusement, his father arranges a cricket match between rival dacoit teams in which some of the players are shot dead. Who could be happy in such circumstances? Days before his fiftieth birthday, with Nirip still wondering whether he should go ahead and have himself kidnapped so that he can make some money, he discovers, most unexpectedly, that he is not the biological child of his parents. Witty, macabre, sad, cruel, unforgivingly insightful, Fairy Tales at Fifty is part adventure tale, part nightmare, part acid trip-and throughout a triumph of fiction.
