Francis Partridge's diaries are the record of a woman who not only participated in the lives of the legendary Bloomsbury group, but was the circle’s oldest surviving member until her death in 2004. The Partridge home, called Ham Spray, and Frances's enduring partnership with Ralph are focal points in these beautifully written diaries. Here they were surrounded by the Wiltshire downs, and here a succession of interesting friends visited and were visited in return. While in London there were visits to Cyril Connolly, lunch at The Ivy with Duncan Grant, Julia Strachey, and Clive Bell, followed by meetings of The Memoir Club for those survivors of Bloomsbury. Frances Partridge reveals a life of such warmth, friendship and good fortune that at the close of these diaries it seems almost impossible that death could rob her of the source of such happiness—Ralph.

Conservative political commentator Kathy Barnette shares how liberal leadership has failed the black community and how being a democrat is not synonymous with your skin color. During his first historic run for the presidency in 2016, Donald Trump made an impassioned plea to the black community. "Give me a chance," he said. "What the hell do you have to lose?" According to Kathy Barnette, black Americans have nothing to lose, except for crime ridden communities, neighborhoods that have become shooting galleries, more social welfare programs, and the mocking indifference of the Democrat party. Barnette argues that even a cursory look into the black community reveals the destabilizing effect liberal policies have had on the black family. There was a time when Barnette bought into the same lie as everyone else-that if you're black, you must be a democrat. In fact, she was born into the Democrat party just as much as she was born into brown skin. There was no point of separation. Until she began to understand what it truly means to be black in America. Barnette contends that being black is more than just the color of her skin. It's a culture and a consciousness, too. In NOTHING TO LOSE, EVERYTHING TO GAIN, Barnette writes about why liberal policies have failed the black community time and time again - and will fail the larger American community as Democrats rush to the hard Left of the party. From the "Great Society" to Kanye West's ongoing war with the liberal establishment, this book provides sharp, eloquent commentary on the most pressing issues facing black Americans today: broken family structure, loss of identity, the legacy of slavery, and more. Barnette argues that President Trump has not been willing to presume that the "black vote" is a foregone conclusion resting comfortably in the back pockets of Democrats. With his plainspoken style and willingness to face harsh truths, the president has done more for the black community than any president since Abraham Lincoln. Barnette insists the time is now to get back what has been lost, to fix the brokenness, and to recognize and support those who are actually working in our favor. We have nothing to lose, and even more to gain.

By the time Neil Bakewell was admitted to the hospital for a gastric bypass in March 2009, he weighed a staggering 600 lbs. He had been told in no uncertain terms that if he did not undergo the operation, he would die within a few years. Yet because of his weight, even undergoing the surgery posed a risk to his life—but it was a risk he simply had to take. A year after his operation, he has lost 280 lbs and has more weight to lose. His life has changed beyond recognition. In this touchingly honest memoir, Neil tells his fascinating story with insight and humor. He recalls how, as a child, his pronounced stutter shattered his confidence; he found comfort in eating, which spiraled into a dependency on food. As he moved into adulthood, his eating habits became more extreme and he gained weight rapidly. Post-surgery, he is now doing things that his size prevented him from doing, like going to the movies and traveling on an airplane. His confidence has been restored and he is taking on new challenges, such as training for a marathon and public speaking.

Christa Couture has come to know every corner of grief--its shifting blurry edges, its traps, its pulse of love at the centre and the bittersweet truth that sorrow is a powerful and wise emotion. From the amputation of her leg as a cure for bone cancer at a young age to her first child's single day of life, the heart transplant and subsequent death of her second child, the divorce born of grief and then the thyroidectomy that threatened her career as a professional musician, How to Lose Everything delves into the heart of loss. Couture bears witness to the shift in perspective that comes with loss, and how it can deepen compassion for others, expand understanding, inspire a letting go of little things and plant a deeper feeling for what matters. At the same time, Couture's writing evokes the joy and lightness that both precede and eventually follow grief, as well as the hope and resilience that grow from connections with others. Evoking Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking and Rachel Cusk's A Life's Work, Couture explores the emotional and psychological experiences of motherhood, partnership and change. Deftly connecting the dots of sorrow, reprieve and hard-won hope, How to Lose Everything contains the advice Couture is often asked for, as well as the words she wishes she could have heard many years ago. It is also an offering of kinship and understanding for anyone experiencing a loss.
