My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me: 1. I’m in a coma. 2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 3. Sometimes I lie. Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

An extraordinarily rich debut novel, set in India in 1947 at the time of Partition. Although the backdrop is this key event in Indian history, the novel is even more far-reaching, touching on the importance of tolerance, love and family. The main character is Bilal, a boy determined to protect his dying father from the news of Partition - news that he knows will break his father's heart. With great spirit and determination, and with the help of his good friends, Bilal persuades others to collude with him in this deception, even printing false pages of the local newspaper to hide the ravages of unrest from his father. All that Bilal wants is for his father to die in peace. But that means Bilal has a very complicated relationship with the truth...

A provocative and unsettling look at the nature of love and deception Is it possible to love well without lying? At least since Socrates's discourse on love in Plato's Symposium, philosophers have argued that love can lead us to the truth—about ourselves and the ones we love. But in the practical experience of erotic love—and perhaps especially in marriage—we find that love and lies often work hand in hand, and that it may be difficult to sustain long-term romantic love without deception, both of oneself and of others. Drawing on contemporary philosophy, psychoanalysis and cognitive neuroscience, his own personal experience, and such famed and diverse writers on love as Shakespeare, Stendhal, Proust, Adrienne Rich, and Raymond Carver, Clancy Martin—himself divorced twice and married three times—explores how love, truthfulness, and deception work together in contemporary life and society. He concludes that learning how to love and loving well inevitably requires lying, but also argues that the best love relationships draw us slowly and with difficulty toward honesty and trust. Love and Lies is a relentlessly honest book about the difficulty of love, which is certain to both provoke and entertain.

We lie to ourselves every day, and these lies can lead to significant unhappiness in our lives. In Lies, authors Bridget Harwell and Elizabeth Scott present a collection of more than forty essays based on their daily interactions with clients who have suffered the pain of digging deeply and unearthing the self-deceptions that have limited their lives. Harwell and Scott, two successful, practicing psychologists, compiled the essays to examine the various forms of self-deception, many of which are unconscious attempts at self-protection which can go unnoticed and yet lead to stress and unhappiness. Accompanied by whimsical and evocative drawings, Lies examines a variety of themes, such as guilt, worry, indecision, and the power of relationships. Each piece is followed by a conversation between Harwell and Scott that seeks to add clarity to the discussion. Written in a conversational style that mimics a therapy session, this collection presents strategies for finding the truth beneath the lies we tell ourselves and gives us an opportunity to live a more integrated life, a life of authenticity that’s essential for any kind of true happiness.

The Mary Chain were the best thing since punk rock' - Bobby Gillespie 'The Jesus and Mary Chain were integral to my musical development' - Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails Praise for Zoë Howe: 'A stunning reinvention of the rock memoir format. Zoë Howe bottles Wilko's lightning' - Dave Collins, Vive Le Rock, on Wilko Johnson: Looking Back at Me 'Brit-rock book of the year' - Gavin Martin on Typical Girls? The Story of The Slits Musically, culturally and in terms of sheer attitude, The Jesus and Mary Chain stand alone. Their seminal debut album Psychocandy would change the course of popular music, and their distinctive blend of psychotic white noise, dark lyrics and a pop sensibility continues to enchant and confound to this day. This book takes us behind the wall of distortion to reveal the fierce, frank and often funny tale of The Jesus and Mary Chain, told by the band members and their associates for the first time. Author Zoë Howe charts each step of the Mary Chain's journey up to the present day, chronicling the formation of the group, their incendiary live performances, the Reids' powerful songcraft and those famous fraternal tensions that would prepare Creation Records boss Alan McGee for the onslaught of the Gallaghers. Thirty years after the Mary Chain formed, it is time this influential group and sometime 'public enemy' had their say. Includes new and exclusive interviews with Jim Reid, Douglas Hart, Bobby Gillespie, Alan McGee, Murray Dalglish, Laurence Verfaillie, John Moore, Ben Lurie, Stephen Pastel and many others.
