Rather than analyzing women's humor in isolation,Look Who's Laughingmaps the terrain that the genders share and the areas that each holds exclusively. The book's twenty essays investigate witty heroines, sexual parodies, domestic humor, and romantic comedies, as well as erotic language, sexual jokes, and humor-charged expressions of power. With its emphasis on the roles that gender plays in the creation, reception, and interpretation of comic art,Look Who's Laughinglooks critically at generic and gender diversity as well as comedy's underlying unities.

DescriptionThis was Chipmunka Publishing's second book release, and one of the most important books on mental illness ever written. A book that in the words of the author, ""started out a suicide note and ended up a celebration of life."" Dolly's outstanding memoir is the gripping tale of a woman's fight to come to terms with abuse, family pressures, prejudice and severe mental ill health. Sen describes the horrible reality of being diagnosed with both manic depression and schizophrenia and the prejudice she faced. Add to this a series of horrific experiences in her life, and it is remarkable how she has the strength to come through such events, writing with such vigour, optimism and warmness. About the AuthorAuthor, poet and activist Dolly Sen lives in Streatham, South London. Born in 1970, she had her first psychotic experience aged 14 which lead her to leave school. After years of mental illness, probably bought on by an abusive childhood, Dolly decided she should write about her experiences. She was inspired to write her own story after reading Jason Pegler's autobiography 'A Can of Madness'. She has since written five books, become a successful performance poet who has toured throughout Europe and has set up two charities.

Sommer 2011. Adolf Hitler erwacht auf einem leeren Grundstück in Berlin-Mitte. Ohne Krieg, ohne Partei, ohne Eva, dafür unter Tausenden von Ausländern und Angela Merkel. 66 Jahre nach seinem vermeintlichen Ende startet er gegen jegliche Wahrscheinlichkeit eine neue Karriere im Fernsehen. Dieser Hitler ist keine Witzfigur, sondern erschreckend real. Und das Land, auf das er trifft, ist es auch: zynisch, hemmungslos erfolgsgeil und vollkommen chancenlos gegenüber dem Demagogen und der Sucht nach Quoten, Klicks und "Gefällt mir!"-Buttons. Eine Persiflage? Eine Satire? Polit-Comedy? All das und mehr: Dieser Roman ist ein literarisches Kabinettstück erster Güte.

A year ago, Lynn Romano and Kate Mossland stumbled through the gordath, a portal between our world and Aeritan. They survived, and returned from that world—but not without a price. When Lynn passed through the gordath into Aeritan’s war ravaged society, the man who loved her followed. But while Lynn fought her way back, Joe found his destiny and stayed behind. Worlds apart, Lynn and Joe have not forgotten each other, but neither expects ever to see the other again. When Kate Mossland returned from Aeritan, she brought back Colar—a young man whose wounds would have been fatal in that primitive society. But despite his ties to the girl who saved his life, Earth is no place for an Aeritan-born man. Now, as the rumble of the gordath echoes through both worlds, danger from Aeritan has come for both Lynn and Kate. A powerful Aeritan general—driven by his obsession with Kate—has crossed though to Earth and assembled an army of outcasts. This time the battle will rage not just in Aeritan, but in our own world, and everyone must choose, finally, to which world they belong.

L.A. Unified is the fictional diary of a first-year English teacher at Pico-Union High School, one of Americas worst performing schools in one of Los Angeless most dangerous neighborhoods, Pico-Union. The students are apathetic, hostile and lazy; the teachers are burned out and cynical; the administrators are biding time until their next promotion, and the schools graduation rate and Academic Performance Index are abysmal. To complicate matters, the area is also the birthplace and current home to the two largest transnational gangs in the world, 18th Street and La Mara Salvatrucha (MS 13) as well as Rockwood Street 13. While all three gangs are well represented at Pico-Union High School, they are far from alone. Weapons, drugs, failing grades, brawls, and graffiti are the norm; homework, reading, and safety are fantasy. Enter David OBrien, a recent college grad who intends to overcome a multitude of obstacles and change the schools failing ways. L.A. Unified is his story, partly inspirational, partly tragic, and completely real. This is Up the Down Staircase in modern times. Welcome to Pico-Union High School: Survival precedes learning.

Men of the Bible takes a close-up look at fifty-two men in Scripture—complex flesh-and-blood characters whose strengths and weaknesses often seem strangely similar to our own. Heroes and villains, sinners and prophets, commoners and kings . . . their dramatic life stories provide us with fresh perspective on the unfolding story of redemption.Though our culture differs vastly from theirs, the fundamental issues we face in relation to God and the world remain the same. We still reach for great dreams and selfish ambitions. We wrestle with fear and indecision, struggle with sexual temptation, and experience the ache of loneliness and the devastation of betrayal. And, like many of these men, we long to walk more closely with the God who calls us into an intimate relationship with himself and who enables us to fulfill his purpose for our lives. Men of the Bible offers men and women today a unique devotional experience that combines five elements. Each week becomes a personal retreat focused on the life of a particular man:Monday: His Story—a narrative retelling of the biblical storyTuesday: A Look at the Man—focusing on the heart of the man and how his story connects with your own lifeWednesday: His Legacy in Scripture—a Bible study on principles revealed through the life of the manThursday: His Legacy of Promise—Bible promises that apply to his life and yoursFriday: His Legacy of Prayer—praying in light of his storyDesigned for personal prayer and study or for use in small groups, Men of the Bible will help you make Bible reading a daily habit. Whether you dip into portions or read every page, this book will help you grow in character, wisdom, and obedience as a person after God’s own heart.

Seth Harrington always dreamed of living in a mansion with an ocean front view. He knew that this dream would only be a dream if he didn't finish school and become a doctor. Seth was finishing up his last semester in college and his dream was closer to becoming a reality. Finally, his graduation day was here and as he walked across the stage and his diploma was placed in his hands, he said, "I made it, thank you so much," as he shook the President of the Colleges hand. Seth's private practice was flourishing and now that he had enough money saved up, he took a couple weeks off from his practice to find his beautiful mansion with an ocean front view. After about a week of searching and frustration Seth was ready to board the next flight home. Just as he was about to give up and turn his car around and head back to the airport, he decided to go down one more road. And thank goodness he did. There stood in an isolated area the most beautiful mansion he had ever seen, just like one he'd been dreaming about. Seth started tearing up and said to himself, "If I would have given up my dream would have vanished in the ocean's breeze." Seth pulled up to the mansion and stepped out of his vehicle and as he was canvassing the area he noticed a lighthouse about a couple of hundred yards away from the mansion. Seth said, "That's cool a lighthouse, I wonder if that comes with the mansion." He wasn't even sure if the mansion was for sale because he didn't see a For Sale sign in front of the mansion. The reason he didn't see a For Sale sign is because the sign fell over and was buried in the sand. The previous owners left a couple of years ago in terror. They took nothing with them just the clothes on their backs. Food was left on the kitchen table as though it was still occupied and the furniture was still in place. As Seth was strolling through the mansion he noticed a note next to the telephone in the study. Being curious, he picked up the note and read it. The note said, "If you should be interested in purchasing the mansion call this number below. If you are wondering why food was left on the kitchen table and all the furniture was left behind, a death in the family kept me out of the country and would have been too expensive to ship all the furniture out of the country. The furniture stays along with the lighthouse. If you're serious about purchasing the mansion, just call the number below and I think we can work something out."
