Drei Jahre später ist ihr nichts davon geblieben, außer Schuldgefühlen und großer Trauer. Bis der erfolgreiche Musikproduzent Aidan Lennox in ihr Leben tritt: gutaussehend, gebildet und sexy as hell. Beide haben schwere Verluste hinter sich und suchen Leichtigkeit, Liebe und Leidenschaft. Aber dann schlägt das Schicksal erneut zu, und Aidan verschwindet einfach. Nora fällt in ein tiefes Loch. Um sich daraus zu befreien, beschließt sie, endlich ihren Traum wahr zu machen: Sie studiert und spielt Theater. Die Gedanken an Aidan verbannt sie in den hintersten Winkel ihres Herzens. Doch dann taucht Aidan wieder auf, und ER scheint wütend auf SIE zu sein... Wie zur Hölle kann das sein?

Exzess, Ekstase, bedingungslose Hingabe – Die Geschichte der wildesten Band der Rock- und Pop-Ära Fleetwood Mac ‒ das ist Rock ‘n‘ Roll! Mick Fleetwood, Drummer und Mitbegründer der erfolgreichsten Band der Siebzigerjahre, erzählt von seinem Leben als Teil dieser ungewöhnlichen Kombo, die bis heute die größten Konzerthallen der Welt füllt. Eine Geschichte von zwischenmenschlichen Desastern, Drogenexzessen und verzweifelter Liebe ‒ vor allem aber von der unsterblichen Leidenschaft zur Musik. Mick Fleetwood ist gerade zwanzig Jahre alt, als er 1967 zusammen mit Peter Green und John McVie die Bluesband Fleetwood Mac gründet. Green, Schöpfer legendärer Songs wie »Black Magic Woman«, gilt als Gitarrengenie, wird aber bald Opfer eines fatalen LSD-Trips und verlässt die Band, ohne je zurückzukehren. Was nach dem Ende einer vielversprechenden Bandkarriere aussieht (1969 verkaufen Fleetwood Mac mehr Alben als die Beatles und die Rolling Stones zusammen), entpuppt sich Mitte der Siebzigerjahre als wegweisender Einschnitt: Stevie Nicks und Lindsey Buckingham stoßen zur Band und verpassen Fleetwood Mac den Sound, der die Band zur Legende machen sollte. Songs wie »Go Your Own Way« und »Don’t Stop« werden zu Hymnen der Siebzigerjahre und spiegeln die Verfassung der Bandmitglieder wider, die zwischen Affären, Trennungen, Streits und rauen Mengen an Alkohol und Koks fast aufgerieben werden ‒ und gerade daraus die Visionen für eine Musik entwickeln, die bis heute Menschen in der ganzen Welt bewegt.

Over the years American -- especially New York -- audiences have evolved a consistent set of expectations for the "Irish play." Traditionally the term implied a specific subject matter, invariably rural and Catholic, and embodied a reductive notion of Irish drama and society. This view continues to influence the types of Irish drama produced in the United States today. By examining seven different opening nights in New York theaters over the course of the last century, John Harrington considers the reception of Irish drama on the American stage and explores the complex interplay between drama and audience expectations. All of these productions provoked some form of public disagreement when they were first staged in New York, ranging from the confrontation between Shaw and the Society for the Suppression of Vice to the intellectual outcry provoked by billing Waiting for Godot as "the laugh sensation of two continents." The inaugural volume in the series Irish Literature, History, and Culture, The Irish Play on the New York Stage explores the New York premieres of The Shaughraun (1874), Mrs. Warren's Profession (1905), The Playboy of the Western World (1911), Exiles (1925), Within the Gates (1934), Waiting for Godot (1956), and Philadelphia, Here I Come! (1966).

ALL NET PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS BOOK ARE DONATED TO THE NATIONAL MS SOCIETY. Check out Bundy singing one of his songs to his Granddaughter at her Bat Mitzvah http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_CQCy7f1Xw PLAY ON WORDS is another term for pun. Pun is the humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its diff erent meanings or applications. Play can mean a dramatic composition or piece; a performance, as on the stage; exercise or activity for amusement or recreation; fun or jest, as opposed to seriousness (Dictionary.com). This book is full of humor, puns, and lots of fun. H. Bundy Shaw loved words. He loved the diff erent uses, the different meanings, and the different pronunciations of words. Bundy also loved to play the piano, sing, and make people smile. Most of all, he loved his family, friends, and extended family. This book is a sixty-year history of Bundys writing, beginning with poems he wrote during World War II, through his career with Playtex, his retirement in southern Florida until his death in 2002. He wrote lyrics for skits at the Playtex Annual Meeting, which included Trouble in Midriff City about the new Long Line Living Bra. He wrote lyrics and poems for anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, and bar and bat mitzvahs. Encompassed in them was a complete biography of the person or people he was honoring. He also wrote a musical, Our Fair Couple, which is a spoof of My Fair Lady. Bundy never earned any money from his lyrics and writing, so all the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the National MS Society in his memory. It is my hope that these writings will bring enjoyment to you.

A Most Unsuitable Girl, is a tragicomedy play on the prevalent social practice in India on giving dowry upon the marriage of young woman by her parents and how in certain circumstances the absence (or lack ) of dowry might have potentially fatal consequences for the bride. The play, despite having been written in a comic style, is more serious and hard hitting compared with other tragic plays written on the subject. The characters in the play take varying positions on the phenomenon of dowry and even on dowry death itself, which reflect perspectives prevalent in mainstream Indian society. In the list of characters there is a judge a prosecutor and a defence lawyer who discuss legal angles, which are not without interest. In addition the play points to the power and sexual jealousy of mother-in-law playing a much ignored but extremely significant role in the carrying out of these unspeakably beastial crimes. Conquest at Noon, the second play, is a historical fantasy. As is commonly known, India was successfully colonized by the British for three hundred years. In this play, the author creates a historical fantasy in which India was the colonizing power and the British were the subject population.
