READING: Edward Churt is a successful painter. His wife Carol has a 'vivid personality composed of a minimum of intellect and a maximum of sex'. Increasingly aware of her infidelity, Edward defends himself with a veneer of sophisticated insouciance. But his best friend and army comrade is determined to avenge him... This Was A Man explores some of Coward's lifelong themes of social mores, jealousy and the futility of a life with no moral compass. Can good manners emasculate us? What happens when we repress our inner caveman? Is it more courageous to look away or to face our demons and fight? What, indeed, does it mean to be a man? Banned by the Lord Chamberlain in 1926 for its facetious and irreverent treatment of adultery, This Was A Man was not performed professionally in the UK until its debut at the Finborough Theatre in 2014. This is the first time the play has been published as a single volume in the UK.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Percy Walter's life could never be described as boring. Whether gambling away the safety of his backside or wrangling killer chickens, he was never one to sit back and let life pass him by. Percival Walters was a Man, by Kelly Becht, is pure Americana. Whether you are a man or a woman, Percy is guaranteed to give you at least a chuckle, and maybe even an outright chortle. While Percy is definitely a work of fiction, many of the events and anecdotes depicted are based upon life experiences of the author and those around him. You will find Percival Walters was a Man to be a wholesome, refreshing, and thoroughly enjoyable respite from the turmoil and cynicism of the world around us. Percival Walters was a Man is truly a great read. The concept of 'chicken feet love' alone is worth the price of the book. —William Miolen, Senior Technical Solutions Manager, Whirlpool Corporation

READING: In this eye-opening book, Bruce Marchiano explores the humanity of Christ and the Jesus-qualities that we can emulate today While many books have emphasized Jesus as the Son of God, few have considered his identity as the Son of Man. As an actor who took on the role of Jesus for the acclaimed film Matthew, he encountered Jesus, the man, in a life-changing way and in this book shares his discoveries. Employing a friendly, conversational style, he explores a biblical view of manhood as evidenced by such characteristics as humility, passion, honor, selflessness, gentleness, and submission.

READING: From one of the original leading ladies of historical fiction, this reissued classic captures the life of sir Walter Raleigh—a man of extraordinary ambition whose complex relationship with Elizabeth I followed him around the globe. Beloved historical novelist Norah Lofts was the queen of royal tales for generations. Loft’s books are back, and in Here Was a Man, one of the greatest adventurers of the sixteenth century vividly and romantically comes to life. When young Walter Raleigh first presented himself before Elizabeth I, he dreamt of carving out an empire in the New World to lay at her feet. But Elizabeth is equally determined to keep this handsome, witty young man at her side. Through years of frustration, violent quarrels, reconciliation, and the challenges and rewards of exploration, Raleigh desperately tries to hold on to his dream. Lofts peoples her rich tale with some of the greatest personalities of the age, including Shakespeare, Marlowe, Sir Phillip Sydney, and Sir Francis Drake, painting a detailed portrait of the Elizabethan era in all its colorful, contentious glory. Sweeping readers from the courts of Europe to the jungles of South America, Here Was a Man offers history lovers a feast that only Norah Lofts could deliver.
