Book excerpt: “A haunting dystopian thriller” from the acclaimed author of A Season for Martyrs— “Fans of The Handmaid’s Tale won’t want to miss this one” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). In modern, beautiful Green City, the capital of Southwest Asia, gender selection, war, and disease have brought the ratio of men to women to alarmingly low levels. The government uses terror and technology to control its people, and now females must take multiple husbands to have children as quickly as possible. Yet there are some who resist, women who live in an underground collective and refuse to be part of the system. Secretly protected by the highest echelons of power, they emerge only at night to provide the rich and elite of Green City a type of commodity no one can buy: intimacy without sex. As it turns out, not even the most influential men can shield them from discovery and the dangers of ruthless punishment. This dystopian novel from one of Pakistan’s most talented writers is a modern-day parable, The Handmaid’s Tale for repressed women in Muslim countries everywhere. Before She Sleeps takes the patriarchal practices of female seclusion and veiling, gender selection, and control over women’s bodies, amplifying and distorting them in a truly terrifying way to imagine a world of post-religious authoritarianism.

Book excerpt: In modern, beautiful Green City, the capital of South West Asia, gender selection, war and disease have brought the ratio of women to men to alarmingly low levels. The government uses terror and technology to control its people, and women must take multiple husbands to have more female children as quickly as possible. Yet there are women who resist, women who live in the Panah, an underground collective and refuse to be part of the system. Secretly protected by the highest echelons of power, they emerge only at night, to provide to the rich and elite of Green City a type of commodity that nobody can buy: intimate, non-sexual companionship. In this city, exclusivity is the highest pleasure. But as it turns out, not even the most influential men can shield the women of the Panah from discovery and the dangers of ruthless punishment. This dystopian novel from one of Pakistan’s most talented writers is a modern-day parable: answering the The Handmaid’s Tale with an explosive imagining of women’s lives in repressive Middle Eastern and South Asian countries. It takes the patriarchal practices of female seclusion and veiling, gender selection, and control over women’s bodies, amplifies and distorts them in a truly terrifying way to envision a world of post-religious authoritarianism over women's lives.

Book excerpt: New York Times Bestseller “An exceptional thriller. It left my nerves jangling for hours after I finished the last page.” —Dennis Lehane, New York Times bestselling author of Shutter Island “Imagine drifting off every night knowing that your memories will be wiped away by morning. That’s the fate of Christine Lucas, whose bewildering internal world is rendered with chilling intimacy in this debut literary thriller. . . . You’ll stay up late reading until you know.” —People (4 stars) Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love–all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story. Welcome to Christine's life. Every morning, she awakens beside a stranger in an unfamiliar bed. She sees a middle-aged face in the bathroom mirror that she does not recognize. And every morning, the man patiently explains that he is Ben, her husband, that she is forty-seven-years-old, and that an accident long ago damaged her ability to remember. In place of memories Christine has a handful of pictures, a whiteboard in the kitchen, and a journal, hidden in a closet. She knows about the journal because Dr. Ed Nash, a neurologist who claims to be treating her without Ben’s knowledge, reminds her about it each day. Inside its pages, the damaged woman has begun meticulously recording her daily events—sessions with Dr. Nash, snippets of information that Ben shares, flashes of her former self that briefly, miraculously appear. But as the pages accumulate, inconsistencies begin to emerge, raising disturbing questions that Christine is determined to find answers to. And the more she pieces together the shards of her broken life, the closer she gets to the truth . . . and the more terrifying and deadly it is.

Book excerpt: The acclaimed author of Before She Sleeps returns to a feminist dystopia in this novel of women rising up to break the bonds of polygamy and repression.

An armed group of women known as the Hamiyat have made a name for themselves protecting those too weak to fight back. And now they are going on the offensive . . . Three women among its ranks must make the hardest choices of their lives. Alia Musa, wife of three husbands, joins the Hamiyat to stand up for the daughters she loves. Young soldier Katy Azadeh is kidnapped and finds her beliefs sorely tested by the country of Eastern Semitia and its seductive promises, while commander Fatima Kara must weigh the balance of her soldiers’ lives against a once-in-a-lifetime gambit for freedom. Called “a haunting, dystopian thriller . . .

Download or read book Quicklet on Dexter Season 3 (CliffNotes-like Summary, Analysis, and Commentary) written by David Michael Beaudrie and published by Hyperink Inc. This book was released on 2012-07-30 with total page 58 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ABOUT THE BOOK The first season of Dexter was a sleeper hit for Showtime that surpassed their greatest expectations for rating-related success. Season 2 followed the same trend and solidified Dexter as a franchise and lead character Dexter Morgan, played by Michael C. Hall, as a pop-culture icon. With great success comes additional pressure, however, and as the Season 3 premiere date loomed, fans were asking how the production team could top the past two seasons without duplicating themselves. If Showtime was anxious about the shows performance, the Season 3 premiere quelled any doubts with TV Guide reporting a new ratings record for the show with 1.22 million viewers, beating the previous record by more than 20 percent. The finale delivered even more viewers, with Variety estimating that more than 1.5 million people tuned in to see what would become of Dexter Morgan as the season came to a close. Add in Golden Globe nominations for best dramatic series and best actor, and Dexter was unanimously considered a blockbuster success by business standards. MEET THE AUTHOR Dave Beaudrie is a graduate and valedictorian of Michigan State University with a B.A. in Advertising. He also studied Theatre and has performed in multiple productions around the country. He is a professional screenwriter as well with several projects either produced or in pre-production. He is licensed as a security specialist in the state of California and worked in the field for several years. Beaudrie is an avid mixed martial arts fan and has written extensively on the subject. He writes comedy as well under a pen name and resides in Los Angeles. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Life has gone back to normal for Dexter Morgan following the deaths of Sgt. Doakes and Lila in Season 2. Well, as normal as life can get for a Miami blood-splatter analyst who moonlights as a serial-killing vigilante, that is. Things are good with Rita and Dexter feels safe to hunt again. And hunt he does. Things get sticky, however, when Dexter stalks a murdering drug dealer named Freebo. Freebo gets into a fight with another man, who ends up attacking Dexter. Dexter kills him in self-defense: his first kill of an otherwise innocent man with no planning or preparation. Meaning: No Code. To make matters worse, the victim is revealed to be the brother of assistant district attorney Miguel Prado.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Remediation in medical education is the act of facilitating a correction for trainees who started out on the journey toward becoming excellent physicians but have moved off course. This book offers an evidence-based and practical approach to the identification and remediation of medical trainees who are unable to perform to standards. As assessment of clinical competence and professionalism has become more sophisticated and ubiquitous, medical educators increasingly face the challenge of implementing effective and respectful means to work with trainees who do not yet meet expectations of the profession and society. Remediation in Medical Education: A Mid-Course Correction describes practical stepwise approaches to remediate struggling learners in fundamental medical competencies; discusses methods used to define competencies and the science underlying the fundamental shift in the delivery and assessment of medical education; explores themes that provide context for remediation, including professional identity formation and moral reasoning, verbal and nonverbal learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders in high-functioning individuals, diversity, and educational and psychiatric topics; and reviews system issues involved in remediation, including policy and leadership challenges and faculty development.

Book excerpt: The Monsoon War revisits the futuristic country of Before She Sleeps, where government leaders maintain a stranglehold over women's freedom and reproductive lives. In a neglected southern province, a female armed resistance bands together as the Hamiyat, the protectors of those who are too weak to withstand. Now, they plan a courageous attack on the perpetrators of this regime that will free them from its tyranny forever. Alia Musa is the wife of three husbands in a remote mountain village of Dhofar. When her youngest child, Noor, discovers a group of women who have escaped the regime to take refuge on the mountain, Alia must leave her home, join the Hamiyat resistance, and find out just how far she is willing to go for the daughters she loves, the husband she adores, and the mountain that she calls home. As a promising young soldier in the Hamiyat, Katy Azadeh has found family and home in the resistance. Kidnapped during an unexpected skirmish and taken from the mountains, Katy is seduced by the ways of wealthy neighboring Eastern Semitia. Despite their veiled promises, Katy must find her way back to the Hamiyat to face the war that threatens their very existence. Commander Fatima Kara is a veteran of the Hamiyat, leading her women to protect the women of the mountain villages from the government agents and the abuses of polygamy. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Eastern Semitia makes Fatima Kara gamble with the lives of her soldiers, to win the ultimate prize for them all--their freedom. The Monsoon War is a near-future resistance novel that harnesses the powerful metaphor of women's bodies as the battleground on which the wars of the future will be played out.
