Book Summary:

Steve Denehan's wholehearted response to family life is the cornerstone of this wise and canny book. Through the tiny, everyday moments, we come to know an energetic seven-year-old daughter, a wife whose presence heals, a father aging into forgetfulness, and a host of others. We see bonds between parent and child strengthen through conversations about dinosaur-shaped clouds, questions about death, quiet humming, loud car-singing, evening bike rides. We witness an adult father re-seeing his own childhood, the parental decisions which had shaped him, and the decisions which he and his spouse are making as they give their Robin her wings. As songwriter Mark Nevin says, Steve Denehan is a "beautiful soul with an all too rare lightness of touch." In "Adopted," for instance, we study a packet of photos delivered by an unknown uncle. In "Your Old Cherry Datsun," we watch a role reversal as our poet/narrator addresses the only father he's known, one with whom he can sing himself hoarse, but who now has trouble with simple tasks: "You are still my father/ but you are changed/ and you are other minor-key words/ unsure/ fading/ nervous/ elderly/ forgetful/ you are still my father/ but sometimes, now/ in these darkening dusks/ I have the privilege/ of being yours." Structurally, Days of Falling Flesh and Rising Moons is fluid and natural, with poems about stage fright or lizards intermixed with those about lung cancer and love. Quick surges of anger are paired with lullaby moments, and lullaby moments might be followed by nightmares, or by memories of being a slightly wild lad called DENO. Deeply personal poems may be surrounded and balanced by pieces of cultural history. The final defeat of a once-famous boxer is described with anguished empathy, for example, as is "The Last Dance of Eva Braun." Fantasies about becoming increasingly mechanical-until you aren't sure whether you're made of bone or metal--find their places between celebrations of birds and bogs, and a magical December day so sunny it seems to be summer. The collection was finished before a virus named Covid-19 shook the globe and sent Ireland into a complete lockdown. However, that event seemed to require poetry, so ten of this collection's final poems are late additions, Denehan's responses to the pandemic. Taken together, they constitute a microcosm, not just of the Covid-19 world but of this poet's interior landscape. They range from shock to acceptance, from strict observance of painful rules to moments of deep peace and ... bright wings. Such intertwining keeps readers aware that both happiness and pain can be fragile, easily cracked or crumbled. Though wholehearted devotion to a rich family life is the collection's cornerstone, it's the awareness of complexity that gives Denehan's Days of Falling Flesh and Rising Moons its essential shape.

Book Summary:

From the daring Peruvian essayist and provocateur behind Sexographies comes a fierce and funny exploration of sex, pregnancy, and motherhood that delves headlong into our fraught fascination with human reproduction. Women play all the time with the great power that’s been conferred upon us: it’s fun to think about reproducing. Or not reproducing. Or walking around in a sweet little dress with a round belly underneath that will turn into a baby to cuddle and spoil. When you’re fifteen, the idea is fascinating, it attracts you like a piece of chocolate cake. When you’re thirty, the possibility attracts you like an abyss. Gabriela Wiener is not one to shy away from unpleasant truths or to balk at a challenge. She began her writing career by infiltrating Peru’s most dangerous prison, going all in at swingers clubs, ingesting ayahuasca in the Amazon jungle. So at 30, when she gets unexpectedly pregnant, she looks forward to the experience the way a mountain climber approaches a precipitous peak. With a scientist’s curiosity and a libertine’s unbridled imagination, Wiener hungrily devours every scrap of information and misinformation she encounters during the nine months of her pregnancy. She ponders how pleasure and pain always have something to do with things entering or exiting your body. She laments that manuals for pregnant women don’t prepare you for ambushes of lust or that morning sickness is like waking up with a hangover and a guilty conscience all at once. And she tries to navigate the infinity of choices and contradictory demands a pregnant woman confronts, each one amplified to a life-and-death decision. While pregnant women are still placed on pedestals, or used as political battlegrounds, or made into passive objects of study, Gabriela Wiener defies definition. With unguarded humor and breathtaking directness, Nine Moons questions the dogmas, upends the stereotypes, and embraces all the terror, beauty, and paradoxes of the propagation of the species. Praise for Sexographies “No other writer in the Spanish-speaking world is as fiercely independent and thoroughly irreverent as Gabriela Wiener. Constantly testing the limits of genre and gender, Wiener´s work as a cronista (which roughly translates, but is by no means a direct synonym, of nonfiction writer) has bravely unveiled truths some may prefer remain concealed about a range of topics, from the daily life of polymorphous desire to the tiring labor of maternity.” —Cristina Rivera Garza, author of The Iliac Crest “This collection of essays [opens] on the outskirts of Lima, jumps to a swinger’s party in Barcelona, and next a squirt expert’s apartment. This book can feel psychologically hazardous to read; it pushes you to answer the questions Wiener asks herself: Would I? Could I? Will I?” —Angela Ledgerwood, Esquire Best Books of 2018 “These are essays of unabashed honesty and uncommon freedom of mind, bravely reported and beautifully composed. I hadn’t known how hungry I’d been for this book, how I’d needed it and wanted other books to be it. Sexographies is an antidote and a revelation, and Gabriela Wiener is a brilliant documenter of sex and life as they really are.” —Kristin Dombek, author of The Selfishness of Others “In her native Peru, Gabriela Wiener has a reputation as a gonzo journalist who takes an active role in whatever subject she investigates, which as often as not involves sex, and not the vanilla variety. In this collection, her first translated into English, we meet a notorious polygamous pornographer; go to 6&9, a Barcelona sex club; interview the cruel Lady Monique de Nemours, a world-class dominatrix; visit Vanessa, a member of the European community of Latin American trans sex workers; get a first-hand look at the perils of threesomes; and explore other topics a tad too risqué to even name in a family newspaper. Suffice to say, Wiener’s free-wheeling style is hugely entertaining.” —Sarah Murdoch, Toronto Star "Reading Gabriela Wiener is a joy. Over the years, her work has made me cry, laugh, hurt, and most importantly, dream. Her essays are daring, intimate, and honest, containing the self-awareness of a poet and the sharp focus of a marksman. I'd follow her anywhere." —Daniel Alarcón, author of At Night We Walk in Circles “One of the most interesting writers of this generation is Gabriela Wiener, a Peruvian journalist best known for her high-spirited explorations of female sexuality.... Wiener is witty and fast-paced; many of her experiences, sexual and otherwise, are hard-won, territories explored and sometimes conquered, despite her neurotic misgivings, with courage and aplomb. Part of her appeal lies in the fact that she sometimes writes about sexual topics that have not been well explored, especially by women, and a sense of incredulity is part of the pleasure of reading her work. ‘Is she really going to do that?’ the reader wonders. ‘Is she really going to write (and so openly) about doing that?’ And then she does, and there’s a slight but perceptible shift in the world because she did.” —Lisa Fetchko, Los Angeles Review of Books “With sizzling prose and journalistic attentiveness, Wiener honors the no-clothes rule. She exposes her readers to not only her body, but also to the neuroses, fears, and fantasies that come with it. True to the first-person style of gonzo journalism, each of Wiener’s fifteen transgressive crónicas pull readers into penetrative commentaries on infidelity, abortion, and threesomes, not to mention the ever-elusory ‘Ninja Squirt.’... Sexographies strikes the delicate balance between carnal and curious…. It [expands] the meaning of what pleasure in life can be, sexual or otherwise.” —Madeline Day, The Paris Review “What Peruvian essayist and “gonzo” journalist, Wiener, does in this collection is endlessly fascinating. Whether experiencing sexual subcultures or an ayahuasca trip, she uses herself as the point of departure to delve into the infinite manifestations of being human.” — Keaton, Brazos Bookstore (Houston, TX), Best Nonfiction Books of 2018 “Gabriela Wiener is a Peruvian sex writer, and Sexografias is a book of her collected essays. However, she doesn’t just stay on the carnal, and uses her explorations of egg donation, swingers parties, cruising, and squirting as channels into meditations on motherhood, death, and immigration, all while staying sharp and funny and wild.” — Alejandra Oliva, Remezcla

Book Summary:

I am writing this book to explain how to prove the Bible is true and written outside of our time dimension. Some of the connections between verses are not readily seen and I tie them together. I explain some of the 8,000+ prophecies contained in the Bible and 70 % have been fulfilled. I point out the ones that are being fulfilled today. I have links included to show a variety of current events like the 3rd largest river in the world turning blood red. Basically, I am trying to make the Bible more understandable as you read it.

Book Summary:

In this collection, the author loses, finds and redefines herself, in poems that are sometimes visceral and often humorous. She ultimately shows how meaningful life can become after a period of darkness and how transformative those experiences can be. Anne Walsh Donnelly's debut chapbook with Fly on the Wall Press 'The Woman With An Owl Tattoo' came 2nd at the International Poetry Book Awards 2020. 'These are personal poems, where the reader shares with the poet a space as intimate as the conjugal bed. From the everyday idiom of housewives and farmers to the imagined voices of beasts and inanimate objects, Anne Walsh Donnelly captures the humour and pathos of real life with unique honesty.' - Audrey Molloy, poet and author of Satyress 'In Odd as F*ck, Anne Walsh Donnelly recounts one woman's journey through pain and growth. The poems are poignant, stark, and beautiful, heavy with unanswered questions, but buoyed up by levity. This is potent work.' -Nuala O'Connor, author of The Juno Charm Sample poem; 1957 - 1959 On the hottest Sunday in July, the same day Mam got her first period, she was sent to her father's room to wake him for tea. She cried when she touched his tepid skin and begged him to open his eyes. In the fields cattle lowed, udders heavy with milk. Two Christmases later, my grandmother pressed Mam's hand against her abdomen, told her of the operation in January. 'I'm afraid I might not wake up.' 'You mustn't cry, you have to be strong for your sisters, ' the nuns told Mam, the day before the funeral. She watched over her sisters as they stood shivering in the graveyard, under the shadow of a Great Oak. She became the roots of their saplings, chainsawed through her own pain. 'This is poetry; raw, untethered, honest poetry. It is poetry that doesn't hide, doesn't whisper but instead stands tall and roars. It allows us to get to know the author, to journey with her as she navigates through family, sexuality, ageing and motherhood. This is poetry that tells us that it's okay, that life is often not easy but there is always hope, poetry that gets straight to the point, that is pure, that is real. This is poetry.' -Steve Denehan, poet and author of Days of Falling Flesh and Rising Moons 'Anne Walsh Donnelly states that Death is not nothing, it is everything-this could be the manifesto for her fierce and delicate poetry. A disarming openness and honesty lights up in every poem while her voice never loses its humour or balance, ranging. from the visionary to a wonderfully universal everyday demotic.' - Martina Evans, poet and author of Now We Can Talk Openly About Men

Book Summary:

WE HAVE ALREADY PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE DEALING WITH THE HUMANITY AND THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST, AND WE HAVE TESTIMONY THAT IT HAS ALREADY BEEN A GREAT BLESSING TO MANY PEOPLE BUT SOMEHOW I FEEL THAT WE CAN APPROACH THIS SUBJECT FROM A LITTLE DIFFERENT ANGLE AND OPEN UP A MUCH DEEPER REVELATION. I BELIEVE WE CAN TAKE VARIOUS SCRIPTURES, AND ALLOW THE HOLY GHOST TO PLACE THEM IN THEIR PROPER ORDER OF UNDERSTANDING TO THE POINT WHERE WE WILL GET RIGHT TO THE VERY HEART OF THIS GODHEAD REVELATION. IF THE ONENESS PENTECOST PEOPLE COULD HAVE SEEN WHAT I SEE HERE IN THESE SCRIPTURES, THEY COULD HAVE PRESENTED A ONE GOD REVELATION TO TRINITY PENTECOSTALS THAT MIGHT NOT HAVE SEEMED SO RIDICULOUS TO THEM. HOW-EVER WE DO REALIZE THAT ONLY THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAN OPEN UP THE SCRIPTURES TO OUR UNDERSTANDING, AND THAT IS DONE ONLY WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. THEREFORE REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE MAY SEE, OR SAY, IN THIS HOUR OF TIME, I AM FULLY PERSUADED THAT GOD HAS BEEN RUNNING HIS REDEMPTION PROGRAM, AND THAT NOTHING OF ANY BENEFIT TO OUR SOUL’S SALVATION IS GIVEN TO US PREMATURELY. HE IS AL-WAYS RIGHT ON TIME, NEVER LATE, AND NEVER EARLY. THIS LAST DAY ELEMENT OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST IS BEING DEALT WITH IN A WAY THAT NO OTHER AGE EVER HAS TO THIS POINT, AND IT IS ALL BEING DONE TO MOLD SOME PEOPLE INTO THE VERY IMAGE OF JESUS CHRIST, SO THAT WHEN HE COMES FOR THEM THEY WILL BE LIKE HIM. THERE WILL BE NO ONE GOING IN THE RAPTURE THAT IS STILL EXPECTING TO SEE THREE PERSONS IN HEAVEN, ALL THREE BEING CALLED GOD. BUT NATURALLY WE CANNOT GIVE ANYONE A REVELATION. ALL WE CAN DO IS LEAD THEM TO THE SCRIPTURES THAT REVELATION COMES THROUGH, AND THAT IS WHAT WE ARE ASKING GOD TO HELP US DO.

Book Summary:

Quests are overrated All his life, Prince Rupert thrilled in the glorious exploits of his royal ancestors. Finally embarking on his own heroic journey, Rupert realizes there’s a lot the minstrels leave out of their songs. On the hunt for a mythical dragon, besieged by demons, and navigating the cursed Darkwood with a smart-mouthed unicorn, Rupert is becoming somewhat disenchanted with legends. But even if he succeeds, peril awaits, because the king never intended for his spare heir to return from this fool’s errand. Now, with the help of a few unusual allies, Rupert must make up the story as he goes--outmaneuvering assassins, thwarting the voracious spread of the Darkwood, and grappling with rumors of a powerful evil’s return. Rupert may not be the hero Forest Kingdom wanted, but at this rate, he’s the only one they’re going to get. New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green’s trademark wit and genre-twisting narrative sparkles in Blue Moon Rising, the first book of The Forest Kingdom series.

It’s been twenty years since the world came to an end.

But when he encounters a militaristic, cult-like society hell-bent on restoring civilization, he’s forced to choose between his freedom and finding answers that could change his life and the world. ***** MoonFall is not your standard doomsday novel. Filled with guns, swords, and action, it brings the best of the frontier genre in a world set back by catastrophe; a true post-apocalyptic adventure. MoonFall is the first book in a series of four.
