Something is very wrong between Simona's parents, and she flies home to Rome to find out more, only to witness the murder of Tamar, an American art student in front of her mother's new home. When the police connect the murder weapon to the apartment where Mama is now living, Simona has no choice but to sharpen her detecting skills. Was Tamar killed because she claimed to have found a lost Leonardo drawing? Because she was playing with drugs? Or had she discovered someone's nasty secret? Mama's best friend won't say why she kicked Tamar out of her home and Simona's philandering ex-husband swears he was only a friend. Then there's Prince Maffeo who gave Tamar a home in his dilapidated palazzo. And the American owner of the art school who took the student under his wing. Fortified by Mama's great cooking, Simona pokes into the dark corners of many hearts to reach the shocking truth about the murder and her parents. A recipe for Pasta Allegria is included. "Murder may provide the impetus for the action in this book, but it is the particularly Roman lust for life that keeps us turning the pages-and contemplating our next meal." -Tom and Enid Schantz, Denver Post "For the armchair traveler, evocative descriptions of the Eternal City make an interesting backdrop to a compelling mystery. The book will appeal to those who like Italian food (who doesn't?) and female amateur detectives." -Elorise Holstad, Deadly Pleasures "One of the joys of reading this book is discovering the city of Rome through Simona's eyes. Camilla Crespi makes the city come alive: you meet and see the people, the buildings, the streets and the plazas. And the food. Food is as important an ingredient in The Trouble with Going Home as murder." -Ken Hughes, Critics Choice-America OnLine "The picture Crespi paints of the extended Italian family is emotionally complex, and her knowledge of and love for them is worth the visit." -Kathy Phillips, The Drood Review

First published in 1998, this Darlington child care study looks at the return experiences of children looked after by local authorities. It shows that although the great majority of children go back to their families and home communities, little is known about the process. How can professionals and carers make the transition as easy as possible? The book takes forward ideas first reported in the Dartmouth publication, going home: The return of children separated from their families and tested in subsequent research. It charts patterns of separation and return, considers the experiences of those involved and highlights factors associated with the likelihood of return and its success. Because the factors described in the earlier research have since been confirmed in a blind prospective study they are among the most robust indicators available.

Thirty years ago there were nine African Americans in the U.S. House of Representatives. Today there are four times that number. In Going Home, the dean of congressional studies, Richard F. Fenno, explores what representation has meant—and means today—to black voters and to the politicians they have elected to office. Fenno follows the careers of four black representatives—Louis Stokes, Barbara Jordan, Chaka Fattah, and Stephanie Tubbs Jones—from their home districts to the halls of the Capitol. He finds that while these politicians had different visions of how they should represent their districts (in part based on their individual preferences, and in part based on the history of black politics in America), they shared crucial organizational and symbolic connections to their constituents. These connections, which draw on a sense of "linked fates," are ones that only black representatives can provide to black constituents. His detailed portraits and incisive analyses will be important for anyone interested in the workings of Congress or in black politics.

Immigrants all over the world are leaving their lives and everything that they understand and cherish for a land that has refused to embrace them. Such is the reality of Willie, the protagonist who cannot catch a break in this land of the free. This is the story of the immigrant, this is the story of loss and survival, and this is the story of all of us. The men who came here are all under the impression that somehow they were coming for a better life—they too are Willie. The men who gave up their jobs and professions only to come here and realize that credentials from Caribbean Islands were useless—they too are Willie.

Many of the details of the main character’s life parallel’s actual life events of the author. The author earned an MBA in finance, served four years in the military, and 14 years with the Department of Homeland Security. The motivation for the book arose when a Jewish friend asked him to describe his feelings about the afterlife. After that, he wrote the book with inspiration for the story being the Two Great Commandments from the Bible as well as thoughts from The Inescapable Love of God by Thomas Talbott and finally a lifetime of experiences. The author was highly inspired by a quote from the movie Gladiator, “what we do in life echoes in eternity.” The book was intended to be more action/romance than spiritual but as he experienced a spiritual awakening of his own, the author’s point of view of the world changed. People would ask, “how are you doing?’ and he would answer, “better than I deserve.” The author was dazzled at the extent of religious fervor in many communities but was all too keenly aware of the sadness and desperation brought about by generational poverty on the part of many and generational greed on the part of others. He was also deeply saddened at the spread of godlessness in the secular world. The author earnestly wants to produce an allegory showing a broken special ops soldier, representing every broken man or woman within the reach of this book, nevertheless making his way to heaven to experience the love of God. How can such a man, or any of us, achieve eternity in heaven with the Holy Father when faced with all that we have done? Joe, the special ops man, was told by the archangels that ever since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden there had been a vicious struggle in the Universe between God and the Devil for the souls of the living. The angels in heaven are tasked to assist the Heavenly Father in this struggle. Joe and other warriors were masters of the skills needed to help the Heavenly Father in this effort.

The novel is a political thriller set in the present as the protagonist reluctantly runs for high public office, while he experiences frequent, vivid memories of fighting on the Greeks’ side during their famous war against Troy in the Bronze Age. By novel’s end, the stories—and the reasons for them—meld. Do recollections from a past life animate a person in the present? If they do, what does that mean about our lives? About us? This novel is a political thriller set in the present—as the central character remembers fighting in the Greek war against Troy during the Bronze Age. Post the Obama interregnum, Dan Hacek, retired small-business owner and well married to a physician, forms a boutique political party in Reno, Nevada. It’s called the Conservative-Reform Party, and Dan is persuaded to stand as the party’s candidate for President of the United States. He gets traction because of his passion for the party’s platform that propounds arresting climate change while braking runaway U. S. government spending. Collaterally Dan is beset by increasingly frequent and vivid memories—they can’t be dreams—of commanding Agamemnon’s chariot corps in the Mycenaean Greek expedition against the citadel of Troy. As recalled by Dan, skirmishes are lethal, nights breed extinction. The Cause is hopeless. Finally Amphilochus—Dan—counsels his king to use guile and gold to slip Greek horsemen inside the walls of Ilios. At this they succeed famously. The stories--which mirror each other, sometimes metaphorically, sometimes subliminally—come together by the end of the novel. At base the novel is about fulfilling human existence—why and how. Why take on the U. S. political establishment? Why take on the mighty Hittite empire at Troy? Beyond having to breathe, why do anything? Going Home shows how we find answers.

I am a 47-year-old respectable, ordinary woman. I sold my home in Belfast at the height of the housing market boom. After taking advice from someone I thought to be financially astute, I invested most of the proceeds from the sale. This resulted in me being almost broke and homeless to boot. Consequently, I found myself moving into a hostel in Belfast. My story, in journal form, gives an insight into how this affected my life. I fell into depression, was prescribed anti-depressants, drank to excess on an almost daily basis, but eventually, slowly, began the fight to get out. The three months spent inside the hostel are a total revelation; a culture shock to say the least, and I impart a bit of the life within, providing detailed accounts of horrors of which the outside world is unaware. I lived amongst a cross section of Belfast's undesirables, learned how to survive, fought the system, and unexpectedly, made a friend along the way. I confide in only a handful of people and do my damndest to hide it from the rest. I can accept help from no one on the outside, for fear of jeopardising my fight to be re-housed.My story is as accurate an account of life in a hostel as it is possible to be. Nothing is left out. My determination is fierce and I eventually do go home. It all occurred in 2009. Della B. lives in South Belfast, Northern Ireland. She is inspired by ordinary people who achieve extraordinary things. http: //SBPRA.com/Della

The words "inimitable" and "unique" are bandied about too often in artistic circles, so much so that critics seem to have forgotten those words were invented to describe Howard Waldrop's fiction. Waldrop's mastery of arcane knowledge, his transcendent wit, and the way his stories explode like cheerty bombs inside a reader's mind have all made Howard Waldrop one of the most beloved writers of the past two decades. Readers who encounter his work never forget the experience, and this new collection compiles nine such experiences (heretofore uncollected), including: "Flatfeet!", a madcap tour of this century's first decades, courtesy of the Keystone Kops. "Ocean's Ducks," an homage to those brave black actors of the 1930s. Remember those "Little Moron" jokes in the schoolyard, like "Why did the Little Moron throw the clock out the window?" "He wanted to see Time fly." Now ask yourself again "Why Did?" And beware the masked Mexican wrestlers of "El Castillo de la Perserverancia"! Howard Waldrop's unique and inimitable talents are on full display here. Read on, marvel, and rejoice.
