Eugen Sandow (1867-1925) was a Victorian strongman who was colossally famous in his day and possessed what was deemed to be the most perfect male body. He rose from obscurity in Prussia to become a music-hall sensation in late Victorian London, going on to great success as a performer in North America and throughout the British Empire. He was a friend to King Edward VII and was appointed Professor of Physical Culture to King George V. His physical culture system was adopted by hundreds of thousands around the world. He lost his fortune at the time of the First World War and he ended up being buried in an unmarked grave in Putney Vale Cemetery. There is lively interest in him on the web where his dumbells or chest-extenders sell for hundreds of pounds and an autographed photograph for thousands. Written with humour and insight into the popular culture of late Victorian England, Waller's book argues that Sandow deserves to be resurrected as a significant cultural figure whose life, like that of Oscar Wilde, tells us a great deal about sexuality and celebrity at the fin de siecle.

Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Europe and South Asia. Winner of the 2008 PEN Beyond Margins Award. Identity, friendship, and a long-hidden crime lie at the heart of Naeem Murr’s captivating novel about five friends growing up in a small 1950s Missouri river town. A contender for the Man Booker Prize, this exhilarating story beautifully evokes the extreme joys, as well as the dark and shameful desires, of childhood. Young Rajiv Travers hasn’t had much luck fitting in anywhere. Born to an Indian mother who was sold to his English father for £20, Raj is abandoned by his relatives into the reluctant care of Ruth, an American romance writer living in Pisgah, Missouri. While his skin color unsettles most of the townsfolk, who are used to seeing things in black and white, the quick-witted Raj soon finds his place among a group of children his own age. While the friends remain loyal to one another through the years, it becomes clear that their paths will veer in markedly different directions. But breaking free of the demands of their families and their community, as well as one another, comes at a devastating price: As the chilling secrets of Pisgah’s residents surface, the madness that erupts will cost Raj his closest friend even as it offers him the life he always dreamed of. Taking us into the intimate life of small-town America, The Perfect Man explores both the power of the secrets that shape us and the capacity of love in all its guises to heal even the most damaged of souls. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Although there is no such thing as a perfect man, significant benefits are to be realized by defining and subsequently emulating such person (even to the slightest extent). Unfortunately, such effort has not yet been successfully achieved; while men’s behavior continues to vary wildly. The Perfect, Man Handbook addresses this concern by defining such individual as kind, confident, strong, ambitious (not to acquire or achieve more personally but for the benefit of others), and accommodating. Further, by mapping such characteristics according to what men are comprised of (i.e. their disposition, their relationships, and their presence), The Perfect, Man Handbook appropriately directs men’s attention, exchanges information in a clear and easily understandable manner, and provides a ready reference. Enjoy!

In her moving bilingual art memoir "Spiritual Healing with Art" Fernandez showed how she was able to heal her spirit with art. With over 80 artworks and bilingual text (English/Spanish) the artist's life story, including early emotional traumas and healing, unfolds in a sequence of magnificent paintings, revealing the process by which the artist emerged as an independent, open and free person. This book is rich with archetypal material--both in images and in words. The author/artist has taken a deep inner journey to find that simply expressing her emotions through art has helped her to heal. The art is filled with shadow and light; the words are profound. It is a fascinating testimony about the power of art as a healing resource. Readers said about this book: "Very moving, powerful work" "I see myself in every page" "It makes my hair stand up" "It will empower many people to honor their inner truth" "It is beautiful and magical" "Every page is symbolic of going from darkness into light" "You have cheated time, you know at 36 what takes 50 year to learn." "A book of great depth and few words" "A tool for meditation" "It is very inspirational and empowering but certainly not a how-to book, the learning that results goes much deeper than a to-do list."
