"The Endearing Fart" will educate the reader on the lethal ether of the keister with a minimum amount of information, but likely all the reader needs or wants to know. The book includes stories of embarrassing situations people find themselves in when they are caught inappropriately releasing gas. Ilene hopes this book will help people get over their shyness and accept that this rather unfortunate, unbeguiling human trait is universal. This book will allow us to come out of the closet, together.

The Best of Borneo Travel is just that, a fascinating collection of colorful travel notes by Westerners--from those who first visited this Indonesian island-nation in the the sixteenth century to writers still enthralled by Borneo today. Through the eyes of these European explorers, merchants, administrators, and adventurers we see the kinds of images that captivated the popular imagination of Europe, as well as the stereotypes that developed regarding Borneo's "exotic" peoples and cultures. We witness first-hand the wonders of the equatorial rainforest: animals such as the orang utan, the beautiful flowers and trees that abound along the rivers and rapids, majestic mountains like Kinabalu, sacred to the Borneans. And in some of the nineteenth century accounts we see a reflection of the prevailing social Darwinism of the period--the "natural" assertion of Western political, military, and economic superiority over the "Wild Men of Borneo." Nevertheless, many travelers to Borneo writing here remarked on the wealth and cultural sophistication of the native peoples, and after the first flush of colonialism, the accounts returning to Europe become more balanced--while the interest in the new and strange continues, it is tempered with descriptions of people that are, as people are everywhere, "just like us."

Kate Dorney offers a fresh perspective on the history of post-war English theatre by examining the ways in which the practice and criticism of theatre interact with contemporary understandings of language between 1945 and 2005. From Noel Coward to Sarah Kane and J.B Priestley to Harold Pinter it considers attitudes to, and the reception and construction of, language in English theatre and the social, cultural, intellectual and artistic implications of these practices. Synthesising and supplementing existing work in theatre and cultural studies as well as in stylistics, The Changing Language of Modern English Drama considers the ways in which anxieties about, and attitudes toward, language manifest themselves in discourses on and around theatre of the period. Beginning with an examination of popular notions of communication and communication breakdown, the book proceeds to examine the anxieties induced by changing linguistic styles in the post-war period by contextualising the historical and linguistic context of key theatrical events and practitioners.
The life story of the woman who singlehandedly reshaped the British theatre scene of the 50s and 60s. Kenneth Tynan once remarked on Joan Littlewood's great ability as a director to make ordinariness fascinating and to produce "biting popular drama that does not depend on hit songs, star names or spa sophistication". This same flair is evident in her picaresque narrative - in her descriptions of the characters in her early life: of encounters with irascible caretakers when trying to rig a one-night stand; and of stage-struck cops. Outspoken in her criticism of those who obstructed the company's work, generous in praising those who contributed ot it, Joan is always passionate in her conviction that a theatre should be concerne with much more than simply the putting on of plays. Joan's book is an enthralling life story in its own right. It is also the testament of one of the most influential theatre directors and teachers of the 20th century.
