Book Summary:

Laugh-out-loud, deeply insightful, and emotion-filled essays from multitalented actress, comedian, podcaster, and writer Casey Wilson. Casey Wilson has a lot on her mind and she isn’t afraid to share. In this dazzling collection, each essay skillfully constructed and brimming with emotion, she shares her thoughts on the joys and vagaries of modern-day womanhood and motherhood, introduces the not-quite-typical family that made her who she is, and persuasively argues that lowbrow pop culture is the perfect lens through which to examine human nature. Whether she’s extolling the virtues of eating in bed, processing the humiliation over her father’s late in life perm, mourning her mother's passing, or revealing her patented method for keeping the mystery alive in a marriage, Casey is witty, candid, and full of poignant and funny surprises. Humorous dives into her obsessions and areas of personal expertise—self-help, nice guys, cool girls (not her) and how to receive visitors in the bath—are matched by touching meditations on female friendship, anger, grief, motherhood, and identity. Reading The Wreckage of My Presence is like spending time with a close friend—a deeply passionate, full-tilt, joyous, excessive, compulsive, shameless, hungry-for-it-all, loyal, cheerleading friend. A friend who is ready for any big feelings that come her way—and isn’t afraid to embrace them.

Book Summary:

Buy now to get the main key ideas from Casey Wilson's The Wreckage of My Presence Casey Wilson is an actress, comedian, mother, and above all, lifetime fan of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Wilson’s book, The Wreckage of My Presence (2021), is her unflinching thoughts and feelings about a smattering of subjects, from cults and spin classes (which aren’t all that different) to the reality of spiritual healers in Hollywood. But the book also dives into much deeper and intimate issues, like Wilson’s never-ending struggles with her weight as an actress, the pressures with raising children, and most prominently, the death of her mother. Wilson hopes that, if nothing else, her book makes you realize that the life of a Hollywood actress can be as shallow, insignificant, riddled with guilt and paranoia, and comically bizarre as everyone else’s.

Book Summary:

“[Norman Lock’s fiction] shimmers with glorious language, fluid rhythms, and complex insights.” —NPR When U.S. Army chaplain Robert Winter first meets Emily Dickinson, he is fascinated by the brilliance of the strange girl immersed in her botany lessons. She will become his confidante, obsession, and muse over the years as he writes to her of his friendship with the aspiring politician Abraham Lincoln, his encounter with the young newspaperman Samuel Clemens, and his crisis of conscience concerning the radical abolitionist John Brown. Bearing the standard of God and country through the Mexican War and the Mormon Rebellion, Robert seeks to lessen his loneliness while his faith is eroded by the violence he observes and ultimately commits. Emily, however, remains as elusive as her verse on his rare visits to Amherst and denies him solace, a rejection that will culminate in a startling epiphany at the very heart of his despair. Powerfully evocative of Emily Dickinson’s life, times, and artistry, this fifth stand-alone book in The American Novels series captures a nation riven by conflicts that continue to this day. Norman Lock is the award-winning author of novels, short fiction, and poetry, as well as stage and radio plays. He lives in Aberdeen, New Jersey, where he is at work on the next books of The American Novels series.

Book Summary:

You’ve probably met someone like Josie Madden. You’ll have seen her avert her gaze as she hurries by, turned your head to look at her once she’s passed. She’s middle aged, has a sweet, anxious face and a figure you think is far too good to waste on a woman like that. Nice… but you’d be wasting your time. Right? Mark Latimer doesn’t think so. He’s lost his Frisbee in her garden, and true to his nature is checking her out. He decides he’s going to be the first man to show her what it’s really like. The only thing Josie loves, apart from her son, Dominic, is taking photographs of wild flowers with her old camera. That provides Mark with his opportunity. A freelance photographer/journalist, he introduces her to modern cameras and re-ignites Josie’s passion for her hobby. He uses this as leverage to insinuate himself in her life. Hidden mysteries about her childhood that Josie herself can scarcely recall are revealed as the story gains pace. Helping us here are the private thoughts of her mother Belinda, lying paralysed and helpless in a nursing home. The story is told from the viewpoints of these three people, with the occasional intervention of the author. Mark imposes himself on Josie and plays her like a fish on a line. Matters come to a head when he receives an assignment in Iraq. Other characters broaden the tale. Mark’s two boozy brothers Josh and Smurf; Mary Allen, the sex siren who sunbathes naked next door; Mark’s Spanish stepmother Almeda, who in his teens relieved him of his virginity; and Josie’s ex-husband Dorian, a nerd scientist who married Josie for her money. Haunting the story throughout is the spirit of Josie’s longed-for daughter, the little girl who will be called Celandine.
