'Nicholson is a subtle and addictive writer who deserves to be a household name . . . [with] his remarkable eye for detail and for the weaknesses of human nature' Observer This is our own familiar world rendered pacy, funny, emotionally on the button and hugely entertaining. Belinda wistfully reflects how much better at sex she is now than when she was in her twenties. She's thought about taking a lover, but ultimately could never do that to her husband Tom. So imagine her despair when she discovers he's having an affair... And what about Tom, and his lover Meg? It's not easy for them either. Alongside this knot of middle-aged lovers is a tangle of younger ones, as Belinda's flirty daughter Chloe tries to set up Jack with shy Alice, without realizing that Jack actually has a crush on her. Nicholson casts an unflinching eye on men's attitude to sex, on women, love and family life.

Prayers For The Hurting The Hopeful And The Praiseful

The purpose of this book of prayers is to lift up the hurting, the hopeful and the praiseful, to draw each of us closer to the Lord of all compassion, forgiveness, mercy and love. While each prayer reflects, to some degree, the author's knowledge and experience of the Lord, the meaning, depth and flow of each prayer came from the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We are all hurting, hopeful and praiseful children of the King. We are all of these things, in varying degrees, during the differing seasons and circumstances of our lives. Who among us, whether new or mature in the Lord, can say that we do not hurt at times, that our hope does not vary in intensity as the war rages between the flesh and the spirit, that our praise does not flow as joyful shouts, then as quiet whispers. No matter the season, the circumstances, or the distance we have traveled in our Christian walk, no hurt can overwhelm us, the flame of hope can never be extinguished, and praise will ever be on our lips.

This engaging book provides detailed in-depth discussion of the various influences that an audience in 1611 would have brought to interpreting ‘The Tempest’. How did people think about the world, about God, about sin, about kings, about civilized conduct? Learn about the social hierarchy, gender relationships, parenting and family dynamics, court corruption, class tensions, the concept of tragi-comedy – and all the subversions, transgressions, and oppositions that made the play an unsettling picture of a world attempting to come to terms with capitalism and colonialism while re-addressing the nature of rule.
