This book taught me to laugh and to recognize that my childhood did include good, wholesome, healthy episodes. I say this because, as a child, I suffered with depression and as a preteen turned to alcohol and drugs to forget the recurring nightmares and shame and drown or dull the horrific emotional and physical torment I lived with for many years. It has also taught me to live and appreciate my culture, which I rejected during my teen years.

Creator of television series such as Shameless, Clocking Off, State of Play, Reckless, Linda Green and Children’s Ward, Paul Abbott is a British 'showrunner' and writer whose name and reputation for edgy, intelligent, successful and socio-political programmes holds significant weight both in the contemporary television industry and with the public. This is the first book-length academic study of the television programmes created, written by, and/or executive-produced, by Abbott. It is also the first academic study to attempt to consider his complete oeuvre. Within a broadly chronological structure this book elucidates, decodes and evaluates key examples of Abbott’s output, exhibiting a vital evaluation of Abbott’s work over the past three decades and assessing his contribution to British television. Engaging with thematic and ideological notions of the personal, the autobiographical, the honest, the shameless, the pleasurable and the painful recourse of the specificity of ‘ordinary life’, the volume seeks to combine close textual analysis of Abbott’s work with archival research and specially commissioned interviews with Abbott and other important industry practitioners.

Really it's a love story, like a fairy tale only real. But it's kind of a family drama, y'know, about life and also friendship. It's kind of a tragedy too, but it's funny. The only thing it's not is a thriller, and still it kind of is. And there's a lot of politics and philosophy, only really hardly any. Oh, and also it's about destiny.

The way we live, work, and die-alone and with other Americans-have so many hidden layers that we might as well say that there are two Americas: one we think we know and the other virtually unknown to us. Such a thought is compelling enough to motivate a sociologist to start writing down what he thinks about the hidden America. Then, what emerges from this effort is a picture of America that is at once so familiar and so alien. It is the alien part of America that troubles us, that scares us, and that pushes us to escape into louder, more colorful, and more pleasant unreality. As our escapism becomes more urgent each day, so does its testimony to the emptiness and loneliness of our solitary existence. Huer discusses this alien part of America in American Paradise.

Oscar Wilde was already one of the best known literary figures in Britain when he was persuaded to turn his extraordinary talents to the theatre. Between 1891 and 1895 he produced a sequence of distinctive plays which spearheaded the dramatic renaissance of the 1890s and retain their power today. The social comedies, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband, offer a moving as well as witty dissection of society and its morals, with a sharp focus on sexual politics. By contrast, the experimental, symbolist Salome, written originally in French, was banned for public performance by the English censor. His final dramatic triumph was his `trivial' comedy for serious people, The Importance of Being Earnest' arguably the greatest farcical comedy in English. Under the General Editorship of Dr Michael Cordner of the University of York, the texts of the plays have been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation. In addition, there is a scholarly introduction and detailed annotation. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

G. David Howard combines two passionate interests-humor and politics-in his first collection of personal essays that creatively examine current events in America and the actions of our government. Howard, a seasoned stand-up comedian, addresses a variety of controversial topics with both funny and frank tones intended to provoke laughter and thought about our leaders and the direction our country is headed. As he explores how groupless people have no representation, why gasoline prices have doubled, and how socialists want to destroy freedom and increase taxes, Howard blends facts with his own spin on potential solutions. Included is a script from an imaginary and imaginative golf game between Barack Obama, John Boehner, Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer, as well as a montage of Howard's opinions on a wide range of subjects, such as climate change, driver distractions, and gun control. Half of America Is Nuts, and They Were Allowed to Vote shares one man's take on our world as he presents an unforgettable roller-coaster ride through America and its political system.

Oscar Wilde wrote nine plays in all between 1879 and 1894. His fame as a dramatist rests on four comedies, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, The Importance of Being Earnest, and the tragedy Salomé. His plays continue to dazzle audiences even a century after his death. Contents: Vera The Duchess Of Padua Lady Windermere's Fan A Woman Of No Importance Salomé Salome (English Version) An Ideal Husband The Importance Of Being Earnest La Sainte Courtisane A Florentine Tragedy Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) was an Anglo-Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and critic. He is regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the Victorian Era. In his lifetime he wrote nine plays, one novel, and numerous poems, short stories, and essays. Wilde was a proponent of the Aesthetic movement, which emphasized aesthetic values more than moral or social themes. This doctrine is most clearly summarized in the phrase 'art for art's sake'.
