For a twenty-eight-year-old young man who returned from the army several years ago but has yet to reacclimatize to ordinary life, every step, gesture, word, and vision is a revelation, which takes him back to the beginning, to a time when reality had lost its shape, and turned into a new and imperceptible world. In his imagination, he embodies a number of different characters, he feels the presence of his girlfriend again, and remembers friends from his childhood and from the army, who are now gone. This is a book of questions, and the answers to these questions are to be found by the reader. The novel is like a puzzle which needs to be pieced together, and the picture is not complete until the last piece is in place, until the last word of the book has been read. Translated from the Armenian by Nairi Hakhverdi.

Maybe a splashier bird bath than our old brown one. Is it climate change? Migration shift? Earth wobble? What's the delay? Tune your beaks. Open those gorgeous golden throats. Make music on the bandstand of dawn.

A revealing biography of Lady Bird Johnson with startling new insights into her marriage to Lyndon Baines Johnson and her unexpectedly strong impact on his presidency. Long obscured by her husband's shadow, Claudia "Lady Bird" Johnson emerges in this first comprehensive biography as a figure of surprising influence and the centering force for LBJ, a man who suffered from extreme mood swings and desperately needed someone to help control his darker impulses. Expertly researched and written, Lady Bird draws from rare conversations with the former First Lady and from interviews with key members of Johnson's inner circle of friends, family, and advisers. With chapters such as "Motherless Child," "A Ten-Week Affair," and "LBJ's Midlife Crisis," Lady Bird sheds new light on Mrs. Johnson's childhood, on her amazing acumen as a businesswoman, and on the central role she played in her husband's life and political career. A vital link to the Kennedys during LBJ's uneasy tenure as vice president and a voice of conscience on civil rights, Lady Bird is portrayed here as a political force, strikingly different from the somewhat minor figure depicted in previous works on LBJ. Especially fascinating today, in light of the enormous attention now focused on the private lives of our leaders, are the personal details about her marriage to a man whose extramarital affairs were widely discussed. In this intimate portrait, Russell shows us the private Lady Bird -- not only a passionate conservationist but a remarkable woman who greatly influenced her husband, his administration, and the country.

On June 2, 2010 Derrick Bird, a 52 year-old Cumbrian cab driver, went on a killing spree, shooting dead 12 people and injuring 11 more. His motivation is still unclear; an argument with colleagues, a family feud, and a previous assault are all said to have possibly tipped the divorced grandfather and father over the edge. Beginning in the early hours of Wednesday morning with the murder of his twin brother David and the family solicitor, Kevin Commons, Derrick then drove to Whitehaven, opening fire at 10:35am and killing two of his colleagues. He then went on a rampage through the villages of Egremont, Gosforth, and Seascale, shooting indiscriminately at passers-by. He ended his frenzied attacks in Boot, abandoning his car and setting off alone and on foot into the woodlands where he took his own life at 1:25pm. As the ambulance service took over 50 emergency calls in three-and-a-half hours, police told people to lock their doors and stay inside. Shops, pubs, banks, and supermarkets pulled strangers off the street to give them shelter. A "quiet lad who had no luck with lasses’, no one will really know what drove Derrick Bird to kill, but the consequences of his actions will remain for years to come as families, friends, and an entire nation come to turns with what he did on an ordinary June morning.
