Now we've lived together in contentment, more or less, for nigh on twenty year. Like turtle doves. - In prison, I mean, for fuck's sake, the chances of that. PJ and Christy: sworn enemies destined to share one small room for twenty years. As the two men recall the joys and torments of life outside - the childhood excursions, a deadly brawl, past loves and summer dresses - slowly they uncover the tragic events that have lead them to their cell in Montjoy. A play that explores our capacity to commit the deadliest of crimes but also our capacity for survival, reconciliation and love, ON BLUEBERRY HILL by Sebastian Barry (twice winner of the Costa Book of the Year) premiered in a Fishamble production at the Pavilion Theatre as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival and at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris in October 2017.

It’s peak tourist season in Oriole Point, Michigan—the blueberry buckle of the fruit belt. Nothing draws the crowds quite like their annual carnival. And nothing turns it sour faster than murder . . . The Blueberry Blow Out festival has begun and it’s time for Marlee Jacob, owner of The Berry Basket, to shine. Unfortunately it’s also bringing out the worst in her fiancé Ryan Zeller. Ryan’s rivalry with Porter Gale, owner of Blueberry Hill Farm, spills over into a very public and very ugly fight. And after they compete in the pie-eating contest and a raucous tug of war, their orchard blood feud takes a deadly turn . . . The death of the king of Blueberry Hill is a shock but not too surprising—he was a diabetic whose last pig out meal was deliciously fatal. But when authorities discover that someone tampered with Porter’s insulin, a tragic accident is looking like murder—and Ryan is the key ingredient. Now Marlee’s investigation to clear his name is taking her deep into the Gale family secrets, and she’s being shadowed every step of the way by a killer whose sweet revenge is just beginning . . . Includes Berry Recipes!

"A truly inspiring story, in gorgeous prose, about one family's journey into blueberry farming. Delicious reading." —Naomi Wolf, author of The End of America The Blueberry Years is a mouth-watering and delightful memoir based on Jim Minick's trials and tribulations as an organic blueberry farmer. This story of one couple and one farm shows how our country's appetite for cheap food affects how that food is grown, who does or does not grow it, and what happens to the land. But this memoir also calls attention to the fragile nature of our global food system and our nation's ambivalence about what we eat and where it comes from. Readers of Michael Polland and Barbara Kingsolver will savor the tale of Jim's farm and the exploration of larger issues facing agriculture in the United States—like the rise of organic farming, the plight of small farmers, and the loneliness common in rural America. Ultimately, The Blueberry Years tells the story of a place shaped by a young couple's dream, and how that dream ripened into one of the mid-Atlantic's first certified-organic, pick-your-own blueberry farms.

Growing up during Americas worst economic depression brought unique challenges. This book tells of life before many of the things we take for granted today were available, e.g. refrigerators, television sets, clothes washers and dryers, bath tubs, enough to eat, and clothes that werent hand-me-downs. It was a time when playing baseball with buddies was time consuming and didnt cost anything. One bat, one baseball, a few gloves and no parents to watch was all a bunch of youngsters needed to play for hours. Times were tough, but they were great!

Young FBI assistant, Edward Langdon, must stop a serial killer who has been hunting the innocent of St Louis for decades, but the shadowy events of his traumatic past, and his own deadly tendencies, threaten to ruin him, or worse, turn him into something worse than the killer he is chasing. Edward Langdon's hallucinations have been haunting him his whole life, and even though they hide beneath the memories of an innocent children's TV show, they fill him with a morbid desire to commit murderous acts, and they are getting worse. Loving parents and a stable home never keep Edward from showing signs of disturbing behavior even at an early age. Despite his parent's support and professional therapy, he is unable to fend off his dangerous thoughts, nor is he fully able to understand their origin. Hoping to exorcise his dark desires one day by acting them out on someone who truly deserves it, he commits all his efforts to joining the FBI. Although his position as a mere investigation assistant does not give him the violent opportunities that he has hoped for. That is until a senior agent asks him to assist in a murder investigation.Upon seeing the remains of a young man murdered and left on the side of the road, Edward is bombarded by conflicting emotions of both fascination and empathy, but he discovers that finding out who is responsible for the murder, and possibly exacting justice himself, is not so simple, especially when his superior agent, Charles Kegler, is determined to dismiss it as an accident. With the help of an attractive detective, Carol Weston, Edward delves deeply into a sinister plot of serial murders and political corruption. What he never imagined was that this choice will put him face to face with the shadowy truth of his disturbing past.Soon, Edward soon realizes that he has much more at stake than he could have ever imagined. Danger resides in every corner of the city as he follows his destined path to find answers. A grim prediction engendered in Edward's own warped psyche might just turn out to be true as he learns the tragic truth of his own repressed memories and faces the sadistic killer that he has always feared he would become.
