Bill Bryson once again proves himself to be an incomparable companion as he guides us through the human bodyhow it functions, its remarkable ability to heal itself, and (unfortunately) the ways it can fail.
Full of extraordinary facts (your body made a million red blood cells since you started reading this) and irresistible Brysonesque anecdotes, The Body will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular.

Author: by Dan Mooney
August 15, 2018
If you’re going to end it, you better make it big. No slipping off bridges, it’s undignified for men of our vintage. Go big or don’t bother. Joel lives in a nursing home and he’s not one bit happy about it.
He doesn’t like being told when to eat, when to sleep, when to take his pills. In fact, he doesn’t like living at all, and he’s decided he’s going to end his life on his terms. When he tells retired soap-actor Frank about his dark plan, Frank urges him to go out with a bang.
Together, they embark on a mission to find the perfect suicide, and along the way, discover the strength of friendship when you really feel alone. ”An engaging and poignant story that deserves to be read and enjoyed” Juliet Conlin ”A brilliantly rallying cry to society filled with wonderful characters and brilliant humour” The Bookbag ”A darkly funny, heart-breaking and ultimately uplifting story” Steven Primrose-Smith ”A testimony to the powerful medicine that a friend can be” Kirkus

Author: by Susanna Kaysen
Vintage (April 19, 1994)
In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she’d never seen before, eighteen-year-old Susanna Kaysen was put in a taxi and sent to McLean Hospital. She spent most of the next two years in the ward for teenage girls in a psychiatric hospital as renowned for its famous clienteleSylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, James Taylor, and Ray Charlesas for its progressive methods of treating those who could afford its sanctuary.
Kaysen’s memoir encompasses horror and razor-edged perception while providing vivid portraits of her fellow patients and their keepers. It is a brilliant evocation of a “parallel universe” set within the kaleidoscopically shifting landscape of the late sixties. Girl, Interrupted is a clear-sighted, unflinching document that gives lasting and specific dimension to our definitions of sane and insane, mental illness and recovery.
