“We understand you get out our way sometimes.” I nodded. “Will do,” I said. “Oh, by the way, what did you want to ask me?” They paused on their way out the door. “Oh, right, thanks,” said the fellow with the headband.

Veterinarian Brad Brown never knew what to expect when he was called. Whether he was trying to geld a spooked stallion in a blizzard or found himself in the middle of an all-out fracas involving a monkey’s abscessed tooth and a shotgun, he took it in stride, with great affection for both his four-legged patients and his two-legged clients.
"Go ahead, it's alright." Hesitation, then, "You'll probably laugh at me." I went on the alert. This was not a student about to tell me what an excellent lecturer I was or ask me why he got a "C" on his midterm. I, "No, go ahead, ...

If you have ever wished teens weren't so rebellious, you won't after reading this book. It is an explanation of spirited youth and the heroic roles they struggle to have in society. Rebelliousness is a part of this struggle, an inborn drive to demonstrate high self-worth that opposes families, schools, and communities that restrict them to roles that offer no means of being special, daring, and invincible. Notions about adolescence create such restrictions. The book counters them with findings and perspectives from human and social science, philosophy, myth, and cultural history to show that spirited youth: 1) innately struggle to realize potentials of their awakening spiritual intelligence; 2) aren't adequately supported by modern forms of parenting, family, and community; 3) respond well to authoritative validation and properly resist authoritarian control; 4) lose optimism about what they can become when forced to be obedient and dependent; and 5) will become a Guardian Class that defends and creates good in communities when they are consistently validated. A validating approach to parenting that extends beyond one or two adults in a nuclear family is presented. Guidelines are offered on how it can support youth spiritual development, which is manifested by behavior that departs from established norms, encounters trials and tests, and confronts adversaries and dangers. This pattern of behavior produces positive change when adults nurture, affirm, and engage what is actually underway: 1) struggling for freedoms, possibilities, and opportunities; 2) aspiring to be special, daring, and invincible; 3) seeking to change things through defiance, challenge, and aggression; and 4) discovering the calling, purpose, and vision for their lives.

From big city high-flyer to little village vet … Hannah and Daniel were teenage sweethearts, but then Daniel left their sleepy village of Middlefern and his grandfather’s veterinary practice behind for the bright lights of London. Now, fifteen years later, the prodigal grandson has returned to temporarily take over the village practice with a veterinary qualification and his dog, Sammy, in tow. Daniel is ready for rabbits with tummy aches, guinea pigs who’ve lost their squeak, plenty of cow complaints and a whole lot of memories – both good and bad. But is he ready to see Hannah again? Of course, a high-flying city vet like Daniel was never planning to stay in Middlefern for good – especially given his history with the place. But could another, even more important, vacancy convince him to change his mind?

‘Italians are not really domestic animals’ is the repeated verdict of Antonio’s English landlady. A brilliant philosopher in his thirties, he has come to a redbrick university for a year of research, leaving a wife and two children behind in Florence. Antonio is one of those individuals to whose charm everyone capitulates; but because of difficulties in his early years – poverty and the death of his father forced him to earn money as a professional footballer to see himself through school and university – he has an insatiable greed for reassurance, admiration and affection. All these Dick Thompson, a successful middle-aged novelist in whose house Antonio eventually goes to live, is willing to supply in abundance: inexplicably and ruinously Dick has fallen in love, for the first time for many years, with his handsome lodger. Meanwhile Antonio has also taken up with Pam, a secretary who soon becomes his mistress. The story of this curious triangle – a novelist and mistress begin to feel the pull of a mutual attraction in spite of their distrust and jealousy of each other – is told by Dick, looking back on his infatuation as on an illness that may be temporarily relieved by this or that remedy but can never be wholly cured. Yet for all his own frustration and despair – rarely has the anguish of unreciprocated love been more movingly described – Dick can still feel understanding and compassion both for the girl who, like himself, has fallen prey to the ‘domestic animal’ and for the ‘domestic animal’ himself, always eventually brought back to heel – however far he may stray – by the wife who loves him so much and knows his secret nature so little. Finely-honed, psychologically acute and constructed with rare skill this is a book which has something universal to say about love, jealousy and the essential loneliness of all human beings.

Tranquility is a living seismograph of the internal quakes and ruptures of a mother and son trapped within an Oedipal nightmare amidst the suffocating totalitarian embrace of Communist Hungary. Andor Weér, a thirty-six-year-old writer, lives in a cramped apartment with his shut-in mother, Rebeka, who was once among the most celebrated stage actresses in Budapest. Unable to withstand her maniacal tyranny but afraid to leave her alone, their bitter interdependence spirals into a Sartrian hell of hatred, lies, and appeasement. Then Andor meets the beautiful and nurturing Eszter, a woman who seems to have no past, and they fall wildly in love at first sight. With a fulfilling life seemingly within reach for the first time, Andor decides that he is ready to bring Eszter home to meet Mother. Though Bartis’s characters are unrepentantly neurotic and dressed in the blackest humor, his empathy for them is profound. A political farce of the highest ironic order, concluding that "freedom is a condition unsuitable for humans," Tranquility is ultimately, at its splanchnic core, a complex psychodrama turned inside out, revealing with visceral splendor the grotesque notion that there’s nothing funnier than unhappiness.
