A transformative, euphoric memoir about finding solace in the unexpected for readers of H is for Hawk, It's Not Yet Dark, and When Breath Becomes Air. Ruth's tribe are her lively children and her filmmaker and author husband Simon Fitzmaurice who has ALS and can only communicate with his eyes. Ruth's other "tribe" are the friends who gather at the cove in Greystones, Co. Wicklow, and regularly throw themselves into the freezing cold water, just for kicks. The Tragic Wives' Swimming Club, as they jokingly call themselves, meet to cope with the extreme challenges life puts in their way, not to mention the monster waves rolling over the horizon. Swimming is just one of the daily coping strategies as Ruth fights to preserve the strong but now silent connection with her husband. As she tells the story of their marriage, from diagnosis to their long-standing precarious situation, Ruth also charts her passion for swimming in the wild Irish Sea--culminating in a midnight swim under the full moon on her wedding anniversary. An invocation to all of us to love as hard as we can, and live even harder, I Found My Tribe is an urgent and uplifting letter to a husband, family, friends, the natural world, and the brightness of life.

What does a fitness class that is now in its eighty-sixth year have to do with retaining your mental capacity well into your nineties? Why do these people eat what they want, ignore the experts on the Mediterranean diet, the five a day; and drink tea to hydrate themselves? Why do they value the company of others above the exercises? How do they unwittingly practice mental disciplines espoused by the world’s top neuroscientists on defeating dementia? ‘We train the right side and the left side of the brain’, says Mary McDaid from County Wicklow. ‘We can do this forever’, said Sally Floyd from Edinburgh. ‘I am going to live to be a hundred’, says John Higson from Bolton; and now at ninety-five looks like he’s going to make it. ‘My Grandmother said to me: if you rest you rust’, says Derek Craynor from Manchester. How right grannie was. These people, and many others like them, have steered and shaped this book. I just listened, put the pieces together and penned the narrative. Their stories reveal their secrets to eternal youth. Read on to share in those secrets. We’re Going to Live Forever was inspired by the people of this book and a television programme of the 1970’s called Fame. It would seem almost incidental that the best brains in the world agree with what these people do and how they do it, and why it works. I, on the other hand, just watched it unfold, joined in the fun, and started a journey of a lifetime – Ken Heathcote.

The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats, Volume XIII: A Vision is part of a fourteen-volume series under the general editorship of eminent Yeats scholar George Bornstein and formerly the late Richard J. Finneran and George Mills Harper. One of the strangest works of literary modernism, A Vision is Yeats's greatest occult work. Edited by Yeats scholars Catherine E. Paul and Margaret Mills Harper, the volume presents the "system" of philosophy, psychology, history, and the life of the soul that Yeats and his wife George (née Hyde Lees) received and created by means of mediumistic experiments from 1917 through the early 1920s. Yeats obsessively revised the book, and the revised 1937 version is much more widely available than its predecessor. The original 1925 version of A Vision, poetic, unpolished, masked in fiction, and close to the excitement of the automatic writing that the Yeatses believed to be its supernatural origin, is presented here in a scholarly edition for the first time. The text, minimally corrected to retain the sense of the original, is extensively annotated, with particular attention paid to the relationship between the published book and its complex genetic materials. Indispensable to an understanding of the poet's late work and entrancing on its own merit, A Vision aims to be, all at once, a work of theoretical history, an esoteric philosophy, an aesthetic symbology, a psychological schema, and a sacred book. It is as difficult as it is essential reading for any student of Yeats.
