Publisher: A&C Black
Vibrant, vivacious and gorgeous, Wendy Shanker is a fat girl who has simply had enough - enough of family, friends, co-workers, women's magazines, even strangers on the street all trying (and failing) to make her thin. With her mandate to change the world - and the humour and energy to do it - Wendy shows how media madness, corporate greed and even the most well-intentioned loved ones can chip away at a woman's confidence. She invites people of all sizes, shapes and dissatisfactions to trade self-loathing for self-tolerance, celebrity worship for reality reverence, and a carb-free life for a guilt-free Krispy Kreme. Wendy explores dieting debacles, full-figured fashions and feminist philosophy while guiding you through exercise clubs, doctors' offices, shopping malls and the bedroom. In the process, she will convince you that you can be fit and fat, even as the weight loss industry conspires to make you think otherwise. The Fat Girl's Guide to Life invites you to step off the scales and weigh the issues for yourself.

By the Book is Ramona Koval's love letter to books and writing. What is it about reading that we love so much? Why do books make our lives so much richer? Ramona Koval's By the Book is about reading and living, and about the authors that have written themselves into her life: from Oliver Sacks to Oscar Wilde, Christina Stead to Grace Paley. It is about learning to read (and asking her mother to buy her a copy of the Kama Sutra), about love and science (and her childhood ambition to be Marie Curie), about arctic exploration (and her ruminations on what part of a husky she would eat if she had to), about poetry and travel and falling in love. In our book-devouring nation, this is a book for every avid reader and every avid listener who has been spellbound by Ramona's interviews over the years. By the Book is quintessentially Ramona: warm, bright, erudite, unmissable. Ramona Koval is a writer, journalist and broadcaster. She is the editor of Best Australian Essays and was the presenter of ABC Radio National's 'The Book Show' for many years. She now interviews writers for The Monthly's online book club. textpublishing.com.au 'After 16 years as the host of Australian Broadcasting Corporation's The Book Show, Koval has a knack for conveying the essence of a book without spoiling it. She also recounts key exchanges with interviewees as diverse as Grace Paley, Oliver Sacks and Paul Theroux.' starred review Shelf Awareness 'By the Book takes us on intriguing journeys through books...The excitement with which Koval still approaches each new book, plunging in 'head first, heart deep', furnishes the last words of this urbane and enlightening work of her own.' Weekend Australian 'By the Book is a reminder of the role books can play in our lives. If you celebrate their contribution and appreciate their influence and artistry, then this is a story you will want to treasure. I certainly do.' Weekly Review 'A love letter to the act of reading...an ideal read for any bibliophile...Her tone is warm and inviting, just a touch short of wry...genuine and infectious.' Readings Monthly 'She's a shining presence in the world of literature, here in Australia and right across the globe...The book reads smoothly, it flows along from mood to mood, full of wit and beauty and grace...Her voice is always recognisable, invigorating, familiar to us and greatly loved: the voice of [a] highly literate woman.' Helen Garner 'As keen readers know, a book is more than an ordered pile of paper and cardboard - or these days, a collection of e-reader pixels. A companion, a refuge, a happy distraction, a gift to share - it can be all or any of these things, plus a bookmark of important times of one's life. The wise and warm Ramona Koval has written a literary memoir which focuses on this last quality, the books that marked and made her - from childhood through teens, student years to adulthood.' Australian Women's Weekly 'An irresistible study of the symbiotic relationship, for the bookish, between life and books...The voice is easily recognisable as the one we know from [Koval's] decades in radio: generous, warm and fearless.' Kerryn Goldsworthy, Australian Book Review 'The last chapters of By the Book reveal the quality of mind that made [Ramona Koval] such a brilliant interviewer, as much at home with scientists and travel writers as with novelists and poets.' Brenda Niall, Age 'Koval's enthusiasm bubbles from the page. It confirms the erudite and talented Koval is a treasure, whose voice is sorely missed on our airwaves.' Australian Bookseller and Publisher 'An entertaining, funny and instructive memoir about the real value of books.' Good Reading

"A collection of short stories that makes it possible to be proud to be human."—Carolyn See, Washington Post Looking at her characters as if through a pair of binoculars, Ann Hood captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. A pregnant woman left by her husband cooks obsessively to cope with her loss, but never tastes a morsel. In an attempt to stay sober, a young alcoholic seduces her priest and embarks on a tour of caverns with him. An adolescent girl picks up bird-watching as a hobby and, in her newfound habit of observing others, discovers a budding romance between her mother and her neighbor. These stories, many published in The Paris Review, Glimmer Train, Story, and The Colorado Review, are full of characters seeking an escape from their lives while uncovering small moments of understanding that often have huge implications and consequences. They discover that they can only find peace once they stop searching for a way out. Through diverse voices and lively storytelling, Hood creates authentic, personal, secret worlds full of eccentric detail.

An Illustrated Guide to the Vascular Flora Ronald L. Jones ... TOMENTOSE Covered with short, soft, curly, densely matted or entangled hairs.
Author: Ronald L. Jones
Publisher: University Press of Kentucky
Plant Life of Kentucky is the first comprehensive guide to all the ferns, flowering herbs, and woody plants of the state. This long-awaited work provides identification keys for Kentucky's 2,600 native and naturalized vascular plants, with notes on wildlife/human uses, poisonous plants, and medicinal herbs. The common name, flowering period, habitat, distribution, rarity, and wetland status are given for each species, and about 80 percent are illustrated with line drawings. The inclusion of 250 additional species from outside the state (these species are "to be expected" in Kentucky) broadens the regional coverage, and most plants occurring from northern Alabama to southern Ohio to the Mississippi River (an area of wide similarity in flora) are examined, including nearly all the plants of western and central Tennessee. The author also describes prehistoric and historical changes in the flora, natural regions and plant communities, significant botanists, current threats to plant life, and a plan for future studies. Plant Life of Kentucky is intended as a research tool for professionals in biology and related fields, and as a resource for students, amateur naturalists, and others interested in understanding and preserving our rich botanical heritage.
