Description :


A tribute to legendary restaurateur Elaine Kaufman and her renowned Manhattan creative melting pot. Elaine’s was a world-famous New York restaurant that became home to writers and celebrities. Owner Elaine Kaufman was known to be “New York feisty,” controversial, often rude, always blunt, with the flare of Gertrude Stein and Dorothy Parker. Elaine was highly respected and also frequently feared, and Elaine’s the restaurant received the public’s love and praise time and time again. Woody Allen held a regular table there, and Elaine’s was even featured in Allen’s Manhattan and Billy Joel’s song “Big Shot.” Throughout the years, Mick Jagger, John Lennon, and countless celebrities, politicians, socialites, private eyes, athletes, artists, and the biggest names in Hollywood became Elaine’s regulars. Most emphatically, Elaine’s raison d’être was to nourish “starving writers” with encouragement, introductions to Pulitzer Prize winners, and free food and alcohol. These struggling authors responded to Elaine’s support with profound gratitude. Elaine passed away in 2010, forcing the restaurant manager to close shop shortly after. “There is no Elaine’s without Elaine,” she decreed. However, the memories remain and are recalled by a variety of Elaine’s regulars in this moving, oftentimes amusing, collection of personal essays. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Description :


This book investigates adaptations of The Lady of Shalott and Elaine of Astolat in Victorian and post-Victorian popular culture to explore their engagement with medievalism, social constructions of gender, and representations of the role of art in society. Although the figure of Elaine first appeared in medieval texts, including Malory’s Le Morte Darthur, Tennyson’s poems about the Lady and Elaine drew unprecedented response from musicians, artists, and other authors, whose adaptations in some cases inspired further adaptations. With chapters on music, art, and literature (including parody, young people’s literature, and historical fiction and fantasy), this book seeks to trace the evolution of these characters and the ways in which they reinforce or challenge conventional gender roles, represent the present’s relationship to the past, and highlight the power of art.

*****#1 AMAZON BESTSELLER***** At the horse sales in Kilkenny, Elaine Heney bought a green five year old gelding. As she unloaded him in Tipperary that evening she realised she had a restart on her hands. This is the story of how they progressed since then. Early reviews have described this book as "beautifully written, fantastic and totally addictive reading. Elaine captures you and drags you into her world." Small, wide-eyed and nervous the grey walked anxiously around the sales ring, his front feet moving apprehensively through the fresh yellow sawdust. Bidding started quickly, with the English lady leading the buyers triumphantly from the ring side. 500 quickly turned into 1000 and at 1500 he was officially on the market and would be sold. We quietly put in the next offer to the auctioneer's delight and after two or three more minutes of bidding, it was only us and the English dealer left as the price climbed higher. My heart was in my mouth. `Going once, any more bids now'? The auctioneer's question rang around the room, crackling on the loudspeaker outside. I clenched my fists tightly and stopped breathing completely. `Going twice, this is your last chance now......' the auctioneer paused, hammer raised, as I wished and hoped and prayed simultaneously. The auctioneer took a deep breath, as he glanced around the room and then shouted `Sold!' exuberantly, as the hammer flew through the air and crashed down loudly onto the dark mahogany counter........ 5 STAR REVIEWS "Beautifully written heart warming story - a must read for all horse lovers out there. Ozzie is a Connemara pony with a big personality and the author hilariously documents her training methods with him. A gem of a book, I really enjoyed it." Star "A beautifully written tale of the re-training of a young horse using modern intelligent horsmanship methods, interspersed with the more interesting moments in the author's young life. It reads very easily, yet the writer does not "talk down" to you - she treats you as an equal which is refreshing these days!" Judy Sharpe "Reading about horsemanship in a different context has cast it in a completely new light for me and made it much clearer. Thoroughly enjoyable read!" Rachel Westcott "Thoroughly enjoyed reading all about Ozzie and Elaine. Wish there were more books just like it. As a dedicated and enthusiastic natural horse person, I just drank it all in. Must go back and read it again...soon." Lesley Woodward "Great little book I read it on my kindle app. Story was good, with lots of informative training tips woven into the story. I couldn't wait for bedtime so I could read how well Ozzie was progressing!" FrancesJones "Great read and very entertaining. For any horse lover out there it a great read and a fantastic insight on how with time, patience and a little TLC anything can happen!!! Really made me want to buy a youngster and bring him on myself" Kelly Louise Mellor "I didn't want the book to end! I would love to read a follow up on how Ozzie has progressed now" Mrs. A. Hancock "This is a great book, full of interest and useful insights into training young or damaged horses. Great natural hormanship with a wonderful understanding of how to train a horse or pony with gentleness." Wendy Newing "Please buy this book if you love horses and want to learn how to train and school young horse. Definitely worth the money !!!!! :-)" Kashforaever

Description :


“Grieving is as natural as breathing, for if we have lived and loved, surely we will grieve. . . .” Nancy Cobb meets death in the most vital of places–in the lives of everyday people–and in doing so has found a way to infuse this darkest subject with light. Her candor and refreshing perspective make the deaths of those she has loved–and death itself–a subject to explore rather than to avoid. Cobb’s personal experiences become a point of departure for what amounts to a longer conversation about loss. In telling stories about encounters with grief, Cobb opens us up to our own experiences, and she encourages us to accept and honor the “divine intersections” where the living meet the dying.

ISBN 13 : 131776403X
Description :


In this illuminating book, Dr. Nellie Radomsky explores the complexity of chronic pain in women and evidence for its association with abuse--an issue largely unrecognized by medical practitioners. Modern medical training emphasizes diagnosis and cure, but chronic pain problems often have no identifiable organic cause, and the women who suffer are often not listened to in the doctor’s office. Lost Voices: Women, Chronic Pain, and Abuse addresses how women, by gaining knowledge of the ways the medical culture--and the larger culture--have silenced them, may move into a healing process and learn to speak out. The author encourages women in pain to give voice to their buried experiences and shows them that speaking out about their experiences with abuse and chronic pain can be the first step on the road to healing. The author explores the lost voices of women in pain through stories based on her personal encounters with patients in her practice. These women and their case histories help illustrate the interactions of chronic pain and abuse and the complexity of the doctor-patient relationship. Among the many areas Dr. Radomsky examines are: how the medical culture has silenced women chronic pain in women with a history of abuse the relationship of women’s healing processes and the sense of finding and expressing “lost voices” the doctor-patient relationship and obstacles to healing the limitation of medical models with respect to understanding complex chronic pain issues how acute and chronic pain differ and how physicians and patients alike struggle with this understanding Scientific but very readable, Lost Voices assists readers in the search for answers to complex pain problems. It is a hope-full resource for women struggling with chronic pain and personal abuse issues and an enlightening guide for physicians, therapists, and others working with these women. Professionals working in the area of chronic pain, readers involved in feminist issues, and academic physicians interested in medicine as culture will find Lost Voices a revealing book.
