<p><b>The extraordinary life of history's first modern lesbian who inspired the television series<i> Gentleman Jack</i></b></p><p>Anne Lister's journals were so shocking that the first person to crack their secret code hid them behind a fake panel in his ancestral home. Anne Lister was a Regency landowner, an intrepid world traveller ... and an unabashed lover of other women. <br />In this bold new biography, prizewinning author Angela Steidele uses the diaries to create a portrait of Anne Lister as we've never seen her before: a woman in some ways very much of her time and in others far ahead of it. Anne Lister recorded everything from the most intimate details of her numerous liaisons through to her plans to make her fortune by exploiting the coal seams under her family estate in Halifax and her reaction to the Peterloo massacre. She conducted a love life of labyrinthine complexity, all while searching for a girlfriend who could provide her with both financial security and true love.<br />Anne Lister's rich and unconventional life is now the subject of the major BBC TV drama series<i> Gentleman Jack</i>.</p>

Everyone wants to escape their boring, stagnant lives full of inertia and regret. But so few people actually have the bravery to run – run away from everything and selflessly seek out personal fulfillment on the other side of the world where they don’t understand anything and won’t be expected to. The world is full of cowards. Tim Anderson was pushing thirty and working a string of dead-end jobs when he made the spontaneous decision to pack his bags and move to Japan. It was a gutsy move, especially for a tall, white, gay Southerner who didn’t speak a lick of Japanese. But his life desperately needed a shot of adrenaline, and what better way to get one than to leave behind his boyfriend, his cat, and his Siouxsie and the Banshees box set to move to “a tiny, overcrowded island heaving with clever, sensibly proportioned people who make him look fat”? In Tokyo, Tim became a “gaijin,” an outsider whose stumbling progression through Japanese culture is minutely chronicled in these sixteen hilarious stories. Despite the steep learning curve and the seemingly constant humiliation, the gaijin from North Carolina gradually begins to find his way. Whether playing drums on the fly in an otherwise all-Japanese noise band or attempting to keep his English classroom clean when it’s invaded by an older female student with a dirty mind, Tim comes to realize that living a meaningful life is about expecting the unexpected...right when he least expects it.

<b>A transgender reporter's "powerful, profoundly moving"(<i>New York Times Book Review</i>) narrative tour through the surprisingly vibrant queer communities sprouting up in red states, offering a vision of a stronger, more humane America. </b><b><br /></b>Ten years ago, Samantha Allen was a suit-and-tie-wearing Mormon missionary. Now she's a senior <i>Daily Beast</i> reporter happily married to another woman. A lot in her life has changed, but what hasn't changed is her deep love of Red State America, and of queer people who stay in so-called "flyover country" rather than moving to the liberal coasts. <br /><br /> In <i>Real Queer America</i>, Allen takes us on a cross-country road-trip stretching all the way from Provo, Utah to the Rio Grande Valley to the Bible Belt to the Deep South. Her motto for the trip: "Something gay every day." Making pit stops at drag shows, political rallies, and hubs of queer life across the heartland, she introduces us to scores of extraordinary LGBT people working for change, from the first openly transgender mayor in Texas history to the manager of the only queer night club in Bloomington, Indiana, and many more.<br /><br />Capturing profound cultural shifts underway in unexpected places and revealing a national network of chosen family fighting for a better world, <i>Real Queer America</i> is a treasure trove of uplifting stories and a much-needed source of hope and inspiration in these divided times.<br />

<h1>Experience real Saigon: My Saigon 2018</h1><br />Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) offers bustling streets, amazing walks, too-hip-for-you cafes, rocking music clubs, luxurious salons, explosively delicious restaurants, and indoor cat zoos. Saigon is Vietnam. It’s young, practical, crowded, and a little bit brash.<br /><br />Unfortunately, most visitors to Saigon are limited to the same boring “attractions”: unimpressive buildings, overpriced markets, and War propaganda. <br /><br />Saigon has so much more to offer, but it’s largely undocumented in English-language travel guides. <br /><br /><strong>My Saigon</strong> documents what knowledgeable Saigonese people know: the most amazing experiences, the cultural backstories, the practical go-to tips, the best coffee, the best food (far beyond pho), the best hangouts, the coolest stuff, and hipsters, hipsters everywhere.<br /><br /><li>Big-picture layout of the city.</li><li>Basic history your tour guides aren't allowed to tell you.</li><li>Don't stay in the backpacker cesspool, but don't overpay for a hotel.</li><li>Get up and running with cheap mobile data in minutes, without visiting any phone stores.</li><li>Pho isn't really a big thing in Saigon: it's a northern Vietnamese food. I'm sorry. But I'll show you the best pho in Saigon anyway.</li><li>Delicious, authentic, moderately priced restaurants where my friends and I eat -- and that you won't find on Tripadvisor.</li><li>Coffee. Did someone say coffee? I sure like coffee. Coffee. Yes. More coffee. Please. I'll tell you where.</li><li>Hang out where Vietnamese people hang out, eat street snacks, listen to live music, whatever.</li><li>Make cool friends, date guys or girls, whether you're a guy or a girl.</li><li>Silly Saigonese slang, maybe to use with your new Vietnamese girlfriend or boyfriend.</li><li>The lowdown on how Saigon's mafia runs the streets and who the various street characters are.</li><li>Don't wear a hammer-and-sickle t-shirt in Saigon.</li><li>Don't give money to beggars and street kids, because they're all owned by the mafia.</li><li>Saigon taxis are convenient and trouble-free, if you know one simple trick to avoid scams.<br /><br /><strong>My Saigon</strong> includes tutorials on basic Vietnamese language, history (that Vietnamese tour guides are forbidden from mentioning), Saigon street characters, urban navigation and transportation, internet and phones, money and prices, avoiding scams, making friends, and meeting love interests.<br /><br />Saigon is a wealth of sights, sounds, smells, and experiences. <strong>My Saigon</strong> is a guide, a love confessional, an instruction manual, and an ode to the city.</li>

<p>When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself hes dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, Xanax-popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandoras Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.</p><br /><br /><p>David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.</p><br /><br /><p>But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.</p>
