"Jmiaa, a prostitute in Casablanca, lives alone with her daughter. A woman of strong character and quick wit, she doesn't hold back when describing the world around her: her lover Chaèiba, a crude, wordless brute, or Halima, her depressed fellow prostitute who reads the Qur'an between clients, or Mouy, her mother with implacable moral standards who seems completely ignorant of her daughter's work. Then along comes a young woman, Chadlia--dubbed 'Horse Mouth' by Jmiaa--who wants to make her first film about the life of this Casa neighborhood. She's looking for an actress"--Provided by publisher.

Did you know that 'flavour of the month' originated in a marketing campaign in American ice-cream parlours in the 1940s, when a particular flavour would be specially promoted for a month at a time? And did you know that 'off the cuff' refers to the rather messy practice of writing impromptu notes on one's shirt cuff before speaking in public? These and many more idioms are explained and put into context in this third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Idioms. The volume takes a fresh look at the idiomatic phrases and sayings that make English the rich and intriguing language that it is. This major new edition contains entries for over 6000 idioms, including 700 entirely new entries, based on Oxford's language monitoring and the ongoing third edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. These include a range of recently established idioms such as 'the elephant in the corner', 'go figure', 'like a rat up a drainpipe', 'sex on legs', 'step up to the plate', 'too posh to push', 'a walk in the park', 'win ugly'. This edition also features a greatly increased number of cross-references, making it ideal for quick reference. Many entries include additional features which give more detailed background on the idiom in question. For example, did you know that 'taken aback' was adopted from nautical terminology that described a ship unable to move forward because of a strong headwind pressing its sails back against the mast? Anyone interested in the colourful side of the Englishlanguage will get hours of fun browsing from this fascinating and informative volume.

‘This story – the story of making the first show – is our record of how uncertain, optimistic, idealistic and naïve we felt back then. It’s the spark underneath each new version and each fresh company who bring the fuel and the heat to inspire every production of War Horse.’ - Mervyn Millar This second edition of The Horse’s Mouth follows the production of War Horse, a play adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel, from early concept workshops to one of the most beguiling and original plays ever staged by the National Theatre, the actors working with magnificent,life-sized puppets to take the audience on a gripping journey through history. The Horse’s Mouth is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes story of how this acclaimed and highly technical piece of theatre was achieved. In his new Introduction, Mervyn Millar describes how ‘the journey from improbable idea to long-running show has seen our production change.’

The charming and larcenous Gulley Jimson has an insatiable genius for creation and a no less remarkable appetite for destruction. Is he a great artist? a has-been? or an exhausted, drunken ne’er-do-well? Originally published in 1944, The Horse’s Mouth is acclaimed Irish author Joyce Cary’s third instalment in his First Trilogy and sequel to Herself Surprised (1941) and To Be A Pilgrim (1942). It follows the adventures of Gulley Jimson, an artist who would exploit his friends and acquaintances to earn a quid. Similar to the first two books in the First Trilogy, events are told in the first-person narration and thus from the central character’s point of view. Cary’s novel also uses Gulley’s unique perspective to comment on the social and political events of the time, making Gulley Jimson one of the best-known characters in 20th-century fiction.

In the Autumn of 1810, Paudie Mulhare brewed up a storm that would religiously change the course of one town's folklore. In 1993, it was back in the headlines, when Sean 'The Beast' Talbot led the inmates of Meadowvale Prison onto the rooftops, in one of the bloodiest riots in Irish penal history. In its wake, three prison officers lay dead, and the lives of their colleagues would be, forever, blackened by the loss. From The Horses Mouth picks up their story in the years after the riot. Set over one week, it tells the tale of the great Dinny O Brien, as he prepares to retire from the service, of Chief Officer Augustine Mulcahy, who finally faces up to the one person that he has feared all his life... himself, of the alcoholic Doc Grady, who has run to standstill, and of Jean Cooke, the one-time prostitute, who must venture out to the edge to bring Doc back. There's the retired American Army General, Bradford Shaw, who is searching for roots older than Meadowvale itself, and there's Nora Hegarty, who must strip her son of his one great love in the hope of saving hers. It is a week when the past comes crashing into the present, the week when Meadowvale is, once again, ready to blow, the week when Sean Talbot comes home. From The Horses Mouth is a funny, bawdy, bittersweet insight into the world of the warder... it is a jailer's tale. Welcome to Meadowvale - Home of the Lord.

In this book the young horse, Maximus, describes how he has been handled and trained from an untouched youngster, into a 'made' riding horse. It demonstrates a process that is thorough, logical and progressive, allowing the young horse to become accustomed to each step without any time pressures. All his training is described in detail, by him, together with his comments on how he is handled. His tack is shown in the illustrations, and his reactions to various new stages are expressed by him. The principles involved are Calmness, Patience, Small Steps, Praise and Reward. His young rider, Deborah, is described by him as mostly gentle but firm, considerate and competent. Suitable adult help for her is included where necessary. The objective of The Making of Maximus is to demonstrate a practical system which minimizes the risks involved in training, and is quietly progressive, emphasizing the horse's point of view towards his training.

When submitting to the reader this my first work on Veterinary Science, I cannot forbear from addressing to him a few remarks, in the hope of explaining some of those peculiarities which it may appear to present. At a period of life, when many men retire from active business, I commenced the study of a new profession. My mind was not prepared to receive instruction through the ordinary process, and I was, by necessity, obliged to be, in a great measure, my own tutor. I found that I could learn only through observation, and this circumstance led me into inquiries which often left me in opposition with established opinions. Hence many of the facts announced in the following pages are new, and not very much contained in them is strictly accordant with the acknowledged authorities. The latter circumstance I may regret, but I have no apology to offer for it. My convictions are derived from the study of Nature, and are conclusions gained from a higher source than conjecture or opinion sanctioned by time or approved by professors.
