“A master of her craft." —RT Book Reviews “An incredible storyteller.” —Los Angeles Daily News Queen Victoria’s London is a teeming metropolis of pageantry, forbidden desire, and danger—especially in the East End, a hotbed of vice, witchcraft, and murder. What widow Lady Maggie Graham does there more than greases the rumor mill. When she agrees to wed the Viscount Langdon, there are those who would act upon their suspicions . . . Experience has taught Lord Jamie well. He has seen his fair share of women behave inappropriately—enjoying risqué amusements in secret theatres, running about disguised in the seediest parts of the city—and then they call you vile names for coming to their rescue. And no woman is more shameless, more cunning, more intoxicating than Lady Maggie . . . “Heather Graham sparkles!” —Kat Martin, New York Times bestselling author
The poems in The Ways We Touch, Miller Williams's twelfth volume of poetry, range from reminiscences of old love to meditations on the relationship between God and human beings to reflections on English poetry and children's stories. Throughout, Williams's poems use small scenes from daily life, drawing from them ruminations about life itself. They may be nostalgic or challenging, humorous or full of moral fortitude; always Williams speaks with the kind of insight that rises from wisdom and experience.
*Features exposed spine showing stitching and enabling book to open completely flat!* What's the first thing we touch when we wake up? How do our favourite things reveal our hopes and fears? Can objects tell the story of our lives? Imagine how your day would look if you recorded everything that you touched. From smartphone to soap, from spice to spoon... what if they were all brought together in one place? Would they tell a bigger story? Driven by this idea, Paula Zuccotti travelled around the world to find people from an incredible array of ages, cultures, professions and backgrounds. She asked them to document every object they touched in 24 hours. Then she gathered those objects together and photographed them in a single shot. From a toddler in Tokyo to a cowboy in Arizona, from a cleaner in London to a cloister nun in Madrid, Every Thing We Touch is their story told through the objects they own, consume, need, choose, treasure and can't let go. Each image is mystery, a story, a work of art. Each is a moment in time: a life and a world reflected back at us. every-thingwetouch.tumblr.com

Compelling and subjective, the beauty of Sometimes When We Touch and Other Short Stories lies in its innocence of expression. The characters depicted are real-life portrayals with whom we easily associate ourselves. The shy boy, Manuel, from "On Reunion Day," the greedy politician in "Wheels and Deals," and Anuj and Mayumi from "Sometimes When We Touch" are all ordinary people leading simple lives. Yet it is these little anecdotes in their lives that Manoz Yonzone has brought out so poignantly. Written in simple language, with heart-rending themes, these short tales are an in-depth analysis of human nature that captivates the readers and keeps them enthralled until the last page of this intriguingly varied collection. Manoz Yonzone (Tamang) attended Mount Hermon School in Darjeeling, India. Sometimes When We Touch and Other Short Stories is his first collection in the English language. He lives in Mumbai and in his native home town of Kalimpong.

Out of all the human senses, touch is the one that is most often unappreciated, and undervalued. Yet, the surface of the human body, the skin, is actually one huge sheet of tactile receptors. It provides us with the means to connect with our surroundings. Despite the important role that vision plays in our everyday lives, it is the skin that constitutes both the oldest, and by far the largest of our sense organs. The skin protects our body from the external world and, at the same time, informs us about what occurs on its surface. In Touch With The Future explores the science of touch, bringing together the latest findings from cognitive neuroscience about the processing of tactile information in humans. The book provides a comprehensive overview of scientific knowledge regarding themes such as tactile memory, tactile awareness (consciousness), tactile attention, the role of touch in interpersonal and sexual interactions, and the neurological substrates of touch. It highlights the many ways in which our growing understanding of the world of touch can, and in some cases already are, being applied in the real world in everything from the development of virtual reality (VR) environments, tablet PCs, mobile phones, and even teledildonics - the ultimate frontier in terms of adult entertainment. In addition, the book shows how the cognitive neuroscience approach to the study of touch can be applied to help improve the design of many real-world applications/products as well as to many of our everyday experiences, such as those related to the appreciation of food, marketing, packaging design, the development of enhanced sensory substitution systems, art, and man-machine interfaces. Crucially, the authors makes a convincing argument for the view that one cannot really understand touch, especially not in a real-world context, without placing it in a multisensory context. That is, the senses interact to influence tactile perception in everything - from changing the feel of a surface or product by changing the sound it makes or the fragrance it has. For students and researchers in the brain sciences, this book presents a valuable and fascinating exploration into one of our least understood senses
Scale in cities is relative and absolute. It has the ability tomake us feel at home in the world or alien from it; connected ordisconnected. Both large and small scale in cities can bebeautiful; both are right, neither is wrong. Whilst accepting thatprescription is no answer, 'getting the scale right' – at anintuitive and sensual level – is a fundamental part of themagic of architecture and urban design. Touching the City exploreshow scale is manifested in cities, exploring scale in buildings, inthe space between them and in their details. It asks how scalemakes a difference. Travelling from Detroit to Chandigarh, via New York, London,Paris, Rome and Doha, Tim Makower explores cities with theanalytical eye of a designer and with the experiential eye of theurban dweller. Looking at historic cities, he asks what is goodabout them: what can we learn from the old to inform the new? Thebook zooms in from the macro scale of surfing Google Earth to micromoments such as finding fossils in a weathered wall. It examinesthe dynamics and movement patterns of cities, the making of streetsand skylines, the formation of thresholds and facades, and it alsotouches on the process of design and the importance of drawing. Asthe book's title, Touching the City, suggests, it alsoemphasises the tactile – that the city is indeed somethingphysical, something we can touch and be touched by, alive and everchanging.
