When she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, writes Ananya Mukherjee, she was 'stunned and disappointed in myself but quickly found my resolve. I chose to fight cheerfully...with a deep belief and faith that I'd be okay.' Tragically, and for perhaps the first time in her life, her will could not overcome circumstances, and she lost the fight on 18 November 2018. But she left behind a host of memories for those who knew her, and a beautiful legacy for the world--an intimate and inspiring diary of her 'cheerful fight'. It is a book that makes light of the darker moments of cancer (comparing her balding head to the dishevelled crow on her windowsill); gives practical advice on gifts to bring a cancer patient (piping hot machcher jhol along with a good story or two); and gives an insight into what cancer patients dream of (a road trip to Jaisalmer and a gondola ride in Venice). Tales from the Tail End is a book of hope, courage, even sunshine--not only for those living with cancer, and their caregivers and loved ones, but for anyone determined to live life on her or his own terms despite adversity. Peeyush Sekhsaria's skilful sketches are a delightful accompaniment to the text. Part of the proceeds of this book will go to the Yuvraj Singh Cancer Foundation and the Muskaan Foundation for Road Safety.

What is it like to grow old? Only the elderly can tell you. John Doyle is 88. What is it like to live in an elderly retirement community. Only one who lives there can tell you. John Doyle does. These are questions of great interest to some 37 million people in the U.S. over 75 and many times that number of children and grandchildren. The latter may be stunned to learn what kind of life their beloved parents and grandparents are experiencing. These questions are answered in "Tales from the Tail End," which factually and often humorously describes the aging process in a retirement community and considers how to deal with it gracefully. The author's former pastor, Father Jim Hawker, says this about the book, "I just couldn't put it down. John Doyle shares a memorable story replete with fascinating experiences and personal insights. His humor and pathos are truly infectious. The message of "'Tales from the Tail End'" is both intriguing and inspiring as the author invites the reader to come along and catch the spirit of the ups and downs of the aging process."

Tales From the Blue Ox is a collection of the best tools, techniques, recipes and general common sense gleaned from the history of Victorian-era ingenuity. Interspersed with these gems of nearly forgotten wisdom is the story of one of Northern California's least-known treasures, the Blue Ox Millworks Historic Park. The Blue Ox is a combination living-history museum, sawmill, and custom woodworking shop, specializing in the distinctive gingerbread decoration of Victorian-era homes. It is also a workplace for area artisans and craftspeople whose work ranges from blacksmithing and metal casting to boat building, pottery and vintage printing. This book marks the first attempt to tell the story of the Blue Ox in its entirety, while sharing the skills that have been kept alive there. Starting with a tale of the Victorian craftsmanship that inspired it all, subsequent chapters elaborate on specific crafts ands skills practiced at the Blue Ox. Also included are dozens of formulas for homemade paints, varnishes, glues, and other concoctions useful to artisans and craftsmen alike. Lavishly illustrated with nearly 300 pen-and-ink drawings by the author, Tales From the Blue Ox is a source of both information and inspiration for anyone interested in the traditional arts and/or the golden age of craftsmanship: the Victorian Era.
