Jazz painist Bent lives in squalor in Observatory. After a gig one night, the enigmatic Leonard Fry offers him a vast sum of money to play at a private party.
Bent accepts and duly plays the piano. After the guests have departed, Leonard Fry makes him a Faustian proposition: he, Leonard Fry, his appetites jaded by the pleasures his enormous wealth has afforded him, wants to undertake an experiment: he wants to lock himself in a bare room, containing only the most basic essentials, for a year. Bent’s role in this endeavour would be to live in Fry’s mansion for the year, passing Fry three meals a day through a slot in the door, without any other interaction, even – especially – if he begs to be released. When Bent locks Fry in the room, the strange trip begins.
But there’s a mysterious stranger lurking outside the house, and Bent soon begins to wonder who the real subject of Fry’s bizarre experiment is.

Famed American actress Demi Moore at last tells her own story in a surprisingly intimate and emotionally charged memoir.
For decades, Demi Moore has been synonymous with celebrity. From iconic film roles to high-profile relationships, Moore has never been far from the spotlight – or the headlines.
Even as Demi was becoming the highest paid actress in Hollywood, however, she was always outrunning her past, just one step ahead of the doubts and insecurities that defined her childhood. Throughout her rise to fame and during some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Demi battled addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma that would follow her for years – all while juggling a skyrocketing career and at times negative public perception. As her success grew, Demi found herself questioning if she belonged in Hollywood, if she was a good mother, a good actress – and, always, if she was simply good enough.
As much as her story is about adversity, it is also about tremendous resilience. In this deeply candid and reflective memoir, Demi pulls back the curtain and opens up about her career and personal life – laying bare her tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with raising a family, and her journey toward open heartedness. Inside Out is a story of survival, success, and surrender – a wrenchingly honest portrayal of one woman’s at once ordinary and iconic life.

How can paleontologists know what a living dinosaur was like more than a hundred million years ago, particularly when only partial skeletons remain? Focusing on one large carnivorous dinosaur, Acrocanthosaurus (""high-spined lizard""), paleontologist Kenneth Carpenter explains the process, pairing scholarly findings with more than 75 color illustrations to reconstruct ""Acro"" before readers' eyes. In Acrocanthosaurus Inside and Out, he offers the most complete portrait possible of this fascinating dinosaur's appearance, biology, and behavior. Acrocanthosaurus - similar in size to its later cousin Tyrannosaurus rex, but studded with large spines - roamed what is now the south-central United States 110 to 115 million years ago, during the Early Cretaceous. Carpenter worked on the most complete of the Acrocanthosaurus skeletons (nicknamed ""Fran"") that has been found. Here he describes the techniques that tell us about Acro's biological makeup, movements, and habits. Studies of joints reveal the range of possible motion, while bumps, ridges, and scars on the bones show where muscles, ligaments, and tendons attached. CT scans allow us to peer into the braincase, while microscopes afford a cross-sectional view of bones. These findings in turn offer an idea of how Acro stalked and ate its prey. Scientific evidence beyond the fossils provides avenues for further inquiry: What does the sedimentary rock encasing Fran's bones tell us about Acro's environment? What does our knowledge of Acro's distant relatives, such as crocodilians and birds, imply about its heart and other soft tissues? Can our understanding of other animals explain Acro's huge spines? Carpenter distills all this information into a clear, accessible, engaging account that will appeal to general readers and scholars alike. As the first book-length work on Acrocanthosaurus, this volume introduces a prehistoric giant that once stalked Texas and Oklahoma and offers a rare, firsthand glimpse into the trials and triumphs of paleontology.
Bone is ubiquitous and versatile, and uniquely repairs itself without scarring. However, we rarely see bone in its living state-and even then, mostly in two-tone images that only hint at its marvels. After it serves and protects vertebrate lives, bone reveals itself in surprising ways, sometimes hundreds of millions of years later. In Bones, orthopaedic surgeon Roy Meals explores and extols this amazing material that both supports and records vertebrate life. He demystifies the biological makeup of bones; how they grow, break and heal; and how medical innovations-from the first X-rays to advanced surgical techniques-enhance our lives. With enthusiasm and humour, Meals also reveals the enduring presence of bone outside the body-as fossils, ossuaries, tools, musical instruments-and celebrates allusions to bone in history, religion and idiom. Approachable and entertaining, Bones richly illuminates our bodies' essential framework.
The name "Suzanne Perron" is synonymous with exquisite detail. Her expertly tailored gowns -- worn at the elaborate balls of Mardi Gras and down the aisle at New Orleans weddings -- draw from the legacy of couture design. After years working alongside Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, Anna Sui, and Ralph Rucci in New York, Louisiana native Perron returned home in 2005 to open her own custom design business, specializing in once-in-a-lifetime gowns for brides, debutantes, and Mardi Gras royalty.
Designing in Ivory and White captures the rise of this talented designer, from her first Singer sewing machine to her success on Seventh Avenue to her post-Katrina move to a city in need of "something beautiful," as well as her design technique and meticulous craft. In addition to her personal story, Perron shares her process from the inside out, including: methods for creating crinolines and foundations; using draping and pattern making to transform a sketch into a three-dimensional form; manipulating fabric into pleats, pintucks, and folds; and hand sewing intricate beading, lace, embroidery, and flawless hems.
Her techniques and breathtaking artistry are realized through a showcase of sixteen Suzanne Perron designs. Full-length and detail shots illustrate Perron's gorgeous silhouettes and masterful handwork. Each gown also has a story that illuminates the client experience from the first sketch to the final fitting.
Designing in Ivory and White serves as a testament to the ambition and skill required to design unique dresses, and will provide inspiration for independent designers, sewing hobbyists, and all who admire couture fashion.

All of a sudden, while in the middle of conducting a therapy session, the psychologist thought to himself: 'Has anybody noticed that this crap doesn't work?' He looked at the couple in front of him and realised that what he was telling them about the 'nature of relationships' wasn't going to help them at all. The psychologist decided then and there to throw away the textbook theories, stop dispensing ineffectual advice and to 'get real'. Fifteen years later, the psychologist, Dr Phil, has several bestsellers under his belt and has helped hundreds of thousands of people to change their lives for the better. Now he tackles the issue of self esteem which he considers to be one of the greatest problems affecting people today. All too frequently we use self-esteem - or the lack of it - as a crutch, not as a quality to develop. In SELF MATTERS, he takes a straight shot at this favourite excuse of low self esteem, proposing a new plan; a new way to become your best self. It is time to say goodbye to the nagging fears that keep so many of us from fulfilling our potential. With his new programme, Dr Phil will show people how to get in the game and how to make self esteem about one's possibilities, not one's problems.
Africa Inside Out is an anthology of stories, tales, and testimonies that challenges the daily global newscast of an Africa of dictatorships, starvation, and disease. Writers from both within and outside the continent were invited by the 'Time of the Writer Festival' (an annual festival held in Durban, South Africa) to respond to an Africa of the now: an Africa inescapably part of contemporary world culture. In seeking to portray an Africa that goes against the stereotype, these writers pushed boldly against literary expectation. Responses range from quirky interpretations of oral tradition, to explorations of digital possibility, to experiential testimony and humorous renditions of old - and new - conundrums. Africa Inside Out - as its title suggests - does not present the politicized version of Africa. It portrays an Africa in flux, still grappling with familiar problems, but caught up in the global drive towards reinvention and the possibilities of an unpredictable, yet interconnected, future.
