When the Hungarians revolted against their Russian occupiers in October 1956, their initial success, especially in Budapest, seemed to assure intervention by the West, as Radio Free Europe had almost openly encouraged. But the West abandoned them, their full attention focused on the Suez crisis, and the Soviets brutally crushed the uprising. Young, impetuous 14 year old Elenya Daranyi is embittered by this betrayal. Adding to her fury and despair, an insidious rumor starts not long after her father Geza is appointed to a prominent post in the Communist Government that he is a member of the hated AVO Secret Police. Elenya and Geza are suddenly ostracized and shunned. At his new office, she confronts him, accusing him of neglecting her and her mother who is dying of cancer. Bitterly castigating him for serving the despised Russians, she fails to see the young Russian officer Andrei, who is Geza's assistant, until she whirls about to leave. Then, in a startling moment of ungovernable emotion, the 2 are entrapped in an impossible love. Four short turbulent meetings with Elenya follow before Andrei is assigned to Poland. Eleven years later, in 1968, they meet again in New York, where Andrei has a temporary assignment in the Soviet Mission, and Elenya, a secretary in the Hungarian Mission is assigned to help him. Andrei is determined to marry her before he returns to Europe, but Elenya escapes home on temporary leave, only to discover Geza wants her help working in the Underground, particularly as the Czech crisis looms. When Geza is caught passing military information and dies of a heart attack, Elenya, who has been forced to return to New York, is immediately suspect, and Andrei is forced to give her false information to entrap her. In anguish, knowing he has no choice but to obey these orders, he must face whether or not she has betrayed him.

It’s not just big choices that can radically change our lives—sometimes it’s the small ones. Activating Happiness offers powerful, evidence-based strategies to help you conquer low motivation, nix negative moods, and defeat depression by actively making positive choices in small, everyday moments. If you have depression or just suffer from low mood and lack of motivation, you know that your life isn’t going to change with one grand, sweeping gesture. But you can make important decisions every day—whether it’s getting off the couch and going for a walk, signing up for a course in pottery or screenwriting, or just setting aside some time to meet and chat with a good friend over coffee. These little things won’t change your life all at once. But over time, they will shape the way you live and see the world and keep you on a path to wellness. In Activating Happiness, you’ll find solid strategies based in behavioral activation and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you break the cycle of avoidance, guilt, shame, and hopelessness that can take hold when you’re feeling your lowest. Using this guide, you’ll find little, doable ways to “show up” to your life, get the ball rolling, and start really feeling better, instead of just reassuring others. You’ll learn to set healthy goals for your body like eating and sleeping well, as well as healthy goals for your mind. Most importantly, you’ll discover how to view your life through the lens of your own deepest values, which will spark a commitment to real, lasting change. The best thing about change is that you can start anywhere. By building a life—moment by moment—of rewarding behaviors that correspond to your values, you have the recipe for getting and staying well at your fingertips. This book will guide your way.

"Nickel and Dimed for the Amazon age," (Salon) the bitingly funny, eye-opening story of finding work in the automated and time-starved world of hourly low-wage labor After the local newspaper where she worked as a reporter closed, Emily Guendelsberger took a pre-Christmas job at an Amazon fulfillment center outside Louisville, Kentucky. There, the vending machines were stocked with painkillers, and the staff turnover was dizzying. In the new year, she travelled to North Carolina to work at a call center, a place where even bathroom breaks were timed to the second. And finally, Guendelsberger was hired at a San Francisco McDonald's, narrowly escaping revenge-seeking customers who pelted her with condiments. Across three jobs, and in three different parts of the country, Guendelsberger directly took part in the revolution changing the U.S. workplace. Offering an up-close portrait of America's actual "essential workers," On the Clock examines the broken social safety net as well as an economy that has purposely had all the slack drained out and converted to profit. Until robots pack boxes, resolve billing issues, and make fast food, human beings supervised by AI will continue to get the job done. Guendelsberger shows us how workers went from being the most expensive element of production to the cheapest - and how low wage jobs have been remade to serve the ideals of efficiency, at the cost of humanity. On the Clock explores the lengths that half of Americans will go to in order to make a living, offering not only a better understanding of the modern workplace, but also surprising solutions to make work more humane for millions of Americans.

A razor-sharp portrait of a morally bankrupt and gleefully wicked modern man, Worst. Person. Ever. is Douglas Coupland's gloriously filthy, side-splittingly funny and unforgettable novel. Meet Raymond Gunt. A decent chap who tries to do the right thing. Or, to put it another way, the worst person ever: a foul-mouthed, misanthropic cameraman, trailing creditors, ex-wives and unhappy homeless people in his wake. Men dislike him, women flee from him. Worst. Person. Ever. is a deeply unworthy book about a dreadful human being with absolutely no redeeming social value. Gunt, in the words of the author, "is a living, walking, talking, hot steaming pile of pure id." He's a B-unit cameraman who enters an amusing downward failure spiral that takes him from London to Los Angeles and then on to an obscure island in the Pacific where a major American TV network is shooting a Survivor-style reality show. Along the way, Gunt suffers multiple comas and unjust imprisonment, is forced to re-enact the ‘Angry Dance’ from the movie Billy Elliot and finds himself at the centre of a nuclear war. We also meet Raymond's upwardly failing sidekick, Neal, as well as Raymond's ex-wife, Fiona, herself ‘an atomic bomb of pain’. Even though he really puts the ‘anti’ in anti-hero, you may find Raymond Gunt an oddly likeable character.

Fallen Gods: Sanctuary 12 FOLLOW HER VOICE Nine strangers, linked by the inner whisperings of a mysterious little girl. Each must piece together the origins of their other-worldly abilities and the location of the white manor, where they will be reunited, and the questions that have plagued their existence will finally be answered. But someone else marks their every step. The sinister Mr Cradleworth has other plans for them, plans that could bring about catastrophic consequences, not just for Earth, but the whole universe. This epic tale covers half the globe, as it follows each character into the darkest recesses of their soul. Combining eighties-style horror with science fiction, this dark fantasy will take you on a journey you will never forget. Fallen Gods: Infanticide FACE YOUR FEARS An ominous burning cloud covers the skies across the entire world. Scientists speculate on its origins and its purpose.

Meanwhile, Kaleb convinces Celeste to allow him to take on an important but dangerous mission, one which could reveal Cradleworth’s end game. In this fast-paced sequel to Sanctuary 12, the fallen gods must go head to head with their evil nemesis in a battle to prevent ultimate destruction.

Fallen Gods: Mind Over Matterless THE FINAL WAR BEGINS Divided and leaderless, the first-born must fight through the ruined landscape of the Urker invasion to reunite, enlisting human allies along the way. Meanwhile, Charles Cradleworth searches for his home and his identity under a cloud of amnesia. New loyalties are forged and armies are assembled on both sides for the final confrontation.
