Melody Fox, disillusioned psychologist, is the only person who suspects the sudden death of Grant Fisher, her husband's friend and business partner, was not due to a previously undiagnosed bad heart. She has absolutely nothing to support her gut feelings--at first. Melody begins delving into places she shouldn't go and finds answers to questions she wished she'd never asked. The tenacious Melody Fox finds herself in perilous, life-threatening predicaments as she attempts to uncover the truth about the prestigious Scottsdale Anti-Aging Clinic and Grant Fisher's death. A quintessential shattered undaunted search for truth...and an exhaustive struggle for survival turn Melody Fox's once tranquil life into a daring excursion. BEVERLY UNGAR moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1994 from Davenport Iowa. She has also resided in London, England, and Hanau, Germany. She has been the owner of an award winning advertising agency in the Midwest, co-hosted and produced a weekly movie review television program, and has been marketing director for an Indian casino in New Mexico before becoming a novelist.

In recent decades, the North American public has pursued an inspirational vision of successful aging—striving through medical technique and individual effort to eradicate the declines, vulnerabilities, and dependencies previously commonly associated with old age. On the face of it, this bold new vision of successful, healthy, and active aging is highly appealing. But it also rests on a deep cultural discomfort with aging and being old. The contributors to Successful Aging as a Contemporary Obsession explore how the successful aging movement is playing out across five continents. Their chapters investigate a variety of people, including Catholic nuns in the United States; Hindu ashram dwellers; older American women seeking plastic surgery; aging African-American lesbians and gay men in the District of Columbia; Chicago home health care workers and their aging clients; Mexican men foregoing Viagra; dementia and Alzheimer sufferers in the United States and Brazil; and aging policies in Denmark, Poland, India, China, Japan, and Uganda. This book offers a fresh look at a major cultural and public health movement of our time, questioning what has become for many a taken-for-granted goal—aging in a way that almost denies aging itself.

The Damascene is an in-depth fictional expansion of the Old Testament's II Kings 5, which contains what may be the very first beauty-and-the-beast-like story. Personal transformation, whether physical or spiritual, is not initially sought by the main character, but he nevertheless experiences it on more than one level. Other characters as well are subjected to their own trials, some with which we all might identify. Infused with deep sensuality and spotted with bloody battles and suspenseful incidents of personal survival, this novel also offers a few moments of comic relief without diverting from its portrayal of true love graphically contrasted with lust, of personal weakness on a collision course with friendship and duty, of tribalism challenged by individualism, and of worldly skepticism in confrontation with the very idea that spiritual power may actually exist.

SELECTED FOR STYLIST'S FICTION YOU CAN'T MISS IN 2022 - 'AN ESSENTIAL READ' NAMED AS A BOOK OF 2022 BY ESQUIRE, STYLIST, SHEERLUXE AND FOYLES 'A stone-cold masterpiece by a shocking new talent' OLIVIA LAING It's four in the morning, and our narrator is walking home from the club when they realise that it's February 29th – the birthday of the man who was something like their first love. Piecing together art, letters and memory, they set about trying to write the story of a doomed affair that first sparked and burned a decade ago. Ten years earlier, and our young narrator and a boy named Thomas James fall into bed with one another over the summer of their graduation. Their ensuing affair, with its violent, animal intensity and its intoxicating and toxic power play will initiate a dance of repulsion and attraction that will cross years, span continents, drag in countless victims – and culminate in terrible betrayal. At Certain Points We Touch is a story of first love and last rites, conjured against a vivid backdrop of London, San Francisco and New York – a riotous, razor-sharp coming-of-age story that marks the arrival of an extraordinary new talent.
