You Can T Go Home Again from the Author: Thomas Wolfe. Now available from Thomas Wolfe’s original publisher, the final novel by the literary legend, that “will stand apart from everything else that he wrote” (The New York Times Book Review)—first published in 1940 and long considered a classic of twentieth century literature. A twentieth-century classic, Thomas Wolfe’s magnificent novel is both the story of a young writer longing to make his mark upon the world and a sweeping portrait of America and Europe from the Great Depression through the years leading up to World War II. Driven by dreams of literary success, George Webber has left his provincial hometown to make his name as a writer in New York City. When his first novel is published, it brings him the fame he has sought, but it also brings the censure of his neighbors back home, who are outraged by his depiction of them. Unsettled by their reaction and unsure of himself and his future, Webber begins a search for a greater understanding of his artistic identity that takes him deep into New York’s hectic social whirl; to London with an uninhibited group of expatriates; and to Berlin, lying cold and sinister under Hitler’s shadow. He discovers a world plagued by political uncertainty and on the brink of transformation, yet he finds within himself the capacity to meet it with optimism and a renewed love for his birthplace. He is a changed man yet a hopeful one, awake to the knowledge that one can never fully “go back home to your family, back home to your childhood…away from all the strife and conflict of the world…back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time.”

How To Do A Great Job And Go Home On Time from the Author: Fergus O'Connell. Most of us haven't been successful in achieving a work/life balance. It remains a Holy Grail shining in the distance, always out of reach. For those who feel they have it, it seems to have come down to overcoming the guilt they feel as they sidle out at 5 pm while everybody else is still in the office. Small wonder that elusive balance preoccupies us all more and more. But what if it isn't really a 'balancing act' at all? What if we didn't have to choose between work and life.What if we all needed to start thinking and acting in a different way, and if we did it would be possible to do a great job AND go home on time? Bestselling author Fergus O'Connell says it is possible - and in this book he shows us all how to do it.

I Want To Go Home from the Author: Gordon Korman. Gordon Korman's uproarious, outrageous, and all-too-familiar summer camp adventure is BACK! Rudy Miller really isn't into the whole camping thing. So when his parents send him to Camp Algonkian "for his own good" all he wants to do is go home. Rudy teams up with his cabin-mate Mike for a series of carefully planned - yet hilariously bungled - escape attempts. Unfortunately, their counsellor (and nemesis) Chip is as determined to keep them there as they are to get away. Rudy and Mike spend their days plotting, playing chess, and working off punishments for their failed escapes. Hmmm, maybe it isn't such a bad way to spend the summer after all . . .

Yankee Go Home from the Author: J. L. Granatstein. "... full of surprising conclusions and feisty revisions of conventional wisdom". -- Quill & Quire "... valuable and entertaining ... rich, engagingly presented history ..". -- The Globe and Mail Respected historian and writer J.L. Granatstein never allows conventional wisdom to shoulder out historical truth in this opinionated and controversial exploration of anti-American sentiment throughout Canada's history. He convincingly shows that what began as a justifiable fear of invasion eventually became a tool of our economic and political elites bent on preserving their power. Rich in personalities and points of view, Yankee Go Home? is a fresh look at what holds us together -- or drives us apart -- and will inform and infuriate.

Go Home from the Author: Hannah Jones. In July 2013, the UK government arranged for a van to drive through parts of London carrying the message 'In the UK illegally? GO HOME or face arrest.' This book tells the story of what happened next. The vans were short-lived, but they were part of an ongoing trend in government-sponsored communication designed to demonstrate toughness on immigration. The authors set out to explore the effects of such performances: on policy, on public debate, on pro-migrant and anti-racist activism, and on the everyday lives of people in Britain. This book presents their findings, and provides insights into the practice of conducting research on such a charged and sensitive topic.
