    Jonetta længes efter balance – den balance hun føler, når hun svømmer i dammen, eller når hun tænder for vandet i sin udebruser og lader det lunkne vande skylle ned over sig. Hun længes efter roen, når hun sidder med et krydsord med radioen tændt i baggrunden. Det enkle liv, hvor morgenkaffen kan tage den tid, den tager.Alt dette har hun i sin sommerhytte, men Ragnar er der også. Jonettas voksne og arbejdsløse søn, der bor hjemme og stadig rejser på ferie med hende. Som tager det bedste soveværelse, bestemmer, hvad de skal se i fjernsynet, svarer med enstavelsesord, hvis han da overhovedet svarer, og som efterlader sig onanistive t-shirts og muggent sengetøj, som hans mor må tage sig af. Hvad blev der af hendes kære, lille dreng? Og hvordan skal det lykkes Jonetta at nå ind til denne fremmede, indelukkede mand, som er hendes søn? Og ønsker hun det overhovedet? I løbet af et par ferieuger tvinger dramatiske begivenheder alt det undertrykte op til overfladen. Og spørgsmålet er: Hvornår er det nok? Anne B. Ragde skildrer indsigtsfuldt, humoristisk, urovækkende og dybt alvorligt forholdet mellem forældre og børn.

    Meet Joseph, a man much like many other men you know today. He's loving, charming, eager to please...and full of issues from his past. Navigating his way through life, his encounters with others along the way have been impactful-and all were not pleasant experiences. Without initially taking into consideration the plights of others, Joseph soon recognized how many of his friends-both male and female- were carrying baggage from their pasts, too. Joseph's circle of friends is fraught with crises, and their troubles intertwine with his own. From sexual abuse to physical and mental abuse, each has dealt with something that built a bridge specifically designed for infidelity to cross over. Lust, greed, envy, and pride are just a few areas many people struggle with. The inevitable outcomes weave a web that is nearly impossible from which to escape. "The Roots of Infidelity Go DEEEEP' is exciting, eye-opening, eerie, unforgettable, and (above all else) REAL in its purest form. It is a novel that will leave you gasping for air within each chapter and awake until the wee hours of the morning wondering: Did I make the correct choice to stay in my relationship? Dig DEEEEP to understand if you truly know the one you lay next to at night. Be inspired to see things for what they are-NOT for what others want you to see!

    "Hvis det bliver mørkt, svøber jeg mig i et stykke af himlen. Stjernerne kilder som sodavandsprikker over hele kroppen." En pige og en morfar ser på skyer og blomster og fugle. Mormor snakker med fra foderbrættet foran køkkenvinduet eller fra en sky på himlen. Så vinker pigen og morfaren og trutter i deres trompeter, til morfars kinder er ved at eksplodere. Hvis det bliver mørkt er en livspoetisk bog om rødder og vinger, om før og nu, og om barnets blik på at blive gammel og skulle dø. Velegnet til oplæsning og som udgangspunkt for samtaler mellem generationer – om generationer. Bogen er skabt i tæt samarbejde mellem Inge Duelund Nielsen, som – med egne ord – er "lidt gammel", og som har arbejdet med værket gennem en periode, hvor hun mistede sin sidste forælder og selv blev bedstemor; og illustrator Simon Væth, der er ung og nybagt far ... og det er tydeligt i værket, at de begge er optaget af liv og død, fortid og fremtid.

  • af Tad Friend

    In this "dazzling" (John Irving) memoir, acclaimed New Yorker staff writer Tad Friend reflects on the pressures of middle age, exploring his relationship with his dying father as he raises two children of his own. "How often does a memoir build to a stomach-churning, I-can't-breathe climax in its final pages? . . . Brilliant, intensely moving."-William Finnegan, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Barbarian DaysAlmost everyone yearns to know their parents more thoroughly before they die, to solve some of those lifelong mysteries. Maybe, just maybe, those answers will help you live your own life. But life doesn't stop to wait. In his fifties, New Yorker writer Tad Friend is grappling with being a husband and a father as he tries to grasp who he is as a son. Torn between two families, he careens between two stages in life. On some days he feels vigorous, on the brink of greatness when he plays tournament squash. On others, he feels distinctly weary, troubled by his distance from millennial sensibilities or by his own face in the mirror, by a grimace that's so like his father's.His father, an erudite historian and the former president of Swarthmore College, has long been gregarious and charming with strangers yet cerebral with his children. Tad writes that "trying to reach him always felt like ice fishing." Yet now Tad's father, known to his family as Day, seems concerned chiefly with the flavor of ice cream in his bowl and, when pushed, interested only in reconsidering his view of Franklin Roosevelt.Then Tad finds his father's journal, a trove of passionate confessions that reveals a man entirely different from the exasperatingly logical father Day was so determined to be. It turns out that Tad has been self-destructing in the same way Day has-a secret each has kept from everyone, even themselves. These discoveries make Tad reconsider his own role, as a father, as a husband, and as a son. But is it too late for both of them?Witty, searching, and profound, In the Early Times is an enduring meditation on the shifting tides of memory and the unsteady pillars on which every family rests.

    International Bestselling author Dawn Bates teams up with Clarissa Kristjansson, the world's leading voice of the Thriving Thru' Menopause podcast to bring you an anthology like no other.The Potent Power of Menopause is an open and honest, frank and insightful anthology by 10 women and 1 man from various countries, cultures and faiths around the world - and has the addition of humour which the world has come to enjoy and expect from the books published by Dawn Publishing on the subjects that matter.Within the pages of this book, you will find real-life stories, expert advice and information, detailing the transformational time in a woman's life that is so misunderstood, wrapped in a silence filled with myths passed down through the generations, whilst also being dismissed and ridiculed.The mere mention of the word menopause has caused discomfort, and its name has been whispered in fear of the shame associated with infertility and ageing... That is until now."There are so many books on the market which just didn't appeal to me - not just because many of them are dry and sterile, but because they were either far too feminist or just more of the same old same old," says Bates, the lead author and publisher on this anthology. "I wanted straight forward honest information, a holistic view and have a laugh whilst understanding this transformational time in my life - not be bored out of my mind."Kristjansson says, "this book reframes our experience of this life transition and offers powerful insights into menopause as a gateway into a new and meaningful phase of women's lives."Choosing to dedicate this book to the women of the world, past, present and future, Bates and Kristjansson make their points clear that without the ancient wisdom, and the women of today sharing their stories, the women of tomorrow will end up with more of the regurgitated content aimed more at promoting the author and their business, rather than impacting humanity.The aim of this book is to encourage all the women who read it to love their body, own their sovereignty and harness their feminine power for the greatness of self, and humanity, whilst also helping men understand menopause rather than feel as though they are living, loving and working with a ticking time bomb.Bates had been developing this idea for 2 years before approaching Kristjansson, an internationally recognized holistic menopause coach who knows that perimenopause can be challenging but also the natural path to transformation and the emergence of a wiser woman.The pair make the perfect team, and with them both at the helm driving this project forward, they are set to transform the way in which menopause is seen and understood the world over.Ann Moir-Bussy, one of Australia's leading voices for women in both the indigenous community and mainstream society, joins the team along with English energy healer and leadership coach, Su Winsbury, making this the most holistic book on the subject of menopause on the market.With menopause experts such as Kate Usher, author of Your Second Phase, a corporate coach and change strategist who specialises in Menopause, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, this book brings a change in the global narrative in the business world too.Joining these ladies includes Asian American Powerlifter Laarni Mulvey, transformational stylist to the stars and American politicians Liana Chaouli, is Kate's husband Neil Usher who shares his experience putting the men into menopause.Lifestyle Reboot guide Fiona Whitfield (England), Yoga Therapist Ullis Karlsson (Sweden) and Women's Advocate Maggie Inbamuthia (India) also bring a wealth of knowledge from the perspectives of nutrition, ayurvedic healing and spirituality into this powerful book.A timeless book to journey into the future of feminine transformation.

    Novellerne minder umiddelbart ikke om hinanden; den ene handler omen fars utilgivelige utroskab og hans simulationsopfindelse, der gørdet muligt, at genskabe ethvert menneske til at tilfredsstille sine egnebehov; den anden er en nådesløs skildring af en immigrantmors forsøgpå at tilpasse sig en vestlig verden og hendes søns afvisning af dereskinesiske ophav; den tredje præsenterer i bedste Black Mirror ogWestworld-stil, hvordan det ultimative overvågningssamfund påvirkersindet og menneskets frie vilje.Men alle tre historier har det til fælles, at de omhandler noget af detvigtigste og mest basale, vi omgiver os med – nemlig menneskeligerelationer – og hvordan disse relationer sættes i spil i en alternativverden, der måske ikke er så langt væk fra vores egen virkelighed.

    'Lyrical' Daily Mail'Beautiful' Spectator'Skilled' Financial Times'Vulnerable' Guardian'Deft' Independent'Profound' Observer'The beginning of summer. Perhaps it crosses my mind even now while I wait for news of Amy that something is coming towards us. Like sighting the first slow swell of a wave.'Years ago, in an almost accidental moment of heroism, Ed saved Amy from drowning. Now, in his thirties, he finds himself adrift. He's been living in London for years - some of them good - but he's stuck in a relationship he can't move forward, has a job that just pays the bills, and can't shake the sense that life should mean more than this. Perhaps all Ed needs is a moment to pause. To exhale and start anew. And when he meets Amy again by chance, it seems that happiness might not be so far out of reach. But then tragedy overtakes him, and Ed must decide whether to let history and duty define his life, or whether he should push against the tide and write his own story.Filled with hope and characteristic warmth, Undercurrent is a moving and intimate portrait of love, of life and why we choose to share ours with the people we do.

    If a picture (visual impression) paints a thousand words . The author Peter Berg questions the accepted view of audiovisual perception. His protagonist, the painter PiTTo, shows us that our rather "subservient" sense of hearing, coupled with the uncanny 4' 33" app, can also paint clear and vivid pictures in our mind. Devastated by a sudden and severe Tinnitus, PiTTo takes us along with him as he reluctantly befriends the constant droning in his ears, and in doing so, re-discovers the infinite power and possibilities of sound.

    When Ada Calhoun found herself in the throes of a midlife crisis, she thought that she had no right to complain. She was married with children and a good career. So why did she feel miserable? And why did it seem that other Generation X women were miserable, too? Calhoun decided to find some answers. She looked into housing costs, HR trends, credit card debt averages, and divorce data. At every turn, she saw a pattern: sandwiched between the Boomers and the Millennials, Gen X women were facing new problems as they entered middle age, problems that were being largely overlooked.Speaking with women across America about their experiences as the generation raised to "have it all," Calhoun found that most were exhausted, terrified about money, under-employed, and overwhelmed. Instead of being heard, they were told instead to lean in, take "me-time," or make a chore chart to get their lives and homes in order.In Why We Can't Sleep, Calhoun opens up the cultural and political contexts of Gen X's predicament and offers solutions for how to pull oneself out of the abyss--and keep the next generation of women from falling in. The result is reassuring, empowering, and essential reading for all middle-aged women, and anyone who hopes to understand them.
