Paperback. New. 'Will break your heart and give you chuckles. What more do you want?' John Safran 'The most achingly funny, heartsplittingly tragic and brilliantly written book you'll read this year.' Benjamin Law Liam Pieper was raised by his bohemian parents to believe in freedom and creativity, and that there's nothing wrong with smoking a little **** to make life more interesting. A fast learner, Liam combined hippie self-actualisation with gen Y entrepreneurialism. By his early teens he had a fledgling drug habit, and a thriving business selling pot around the suburbs of Melbourne from the back of his pushbike. He picked up important life skills, like how to befriend a deranged jujitsu master, how to impress his girlfriend's mother by getting arrested in front of her, and how to negotiate pocket money based on how much he was charging his parents for an ounce. But from these highs (chemical, financial and otherwise), Liam's life fell to dramatic lows. The muddled flower child became a petty criminal and an amoral coke monster. After a family tragedy and then his arrest on several counts of possession and trafficking, Liam had to consider: had it been a mistake to adopt the practices of a counterculture without any of its ethics? Hilarious, compelling and sometimes heartbreaking, The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is a memoir about family, addiction and learning how to live with yourself, from a sharp and original new Australian voice. 'Liam Pieper is a truly gifted writer and storyteller. The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is often hilarious, at times heartbreaking and always a fascinating view into an unconventional but compelling life.' Lally Katz 'Made my skin clammy and heart palpitate like all good memoirs of a misspent youth should.' Tim Rogers 'I always knew Liam was talented and I'd always suspected he had a couple screws loose, and now I have proof of both. The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is a brilliant piece of work.' Anna Krien 'To lead a deranged, tragic and funny life is one thing, but to make a book this unsentimentally beautiful out of it is nothing short of criminal. Read it before every other goddamn person does.' Benjamin Law 'This carefully constructed memoir deftly touches on some of the most difficult subjects: addiction, shame, guilt and the bitter-sweet troubles of family relationships. This is a clever book executed by a skilful writer with a razor-sharp wit . . . Pieper's book is crazy good. He had me hooked from the first page to the last.' Krissy Kneen 'This book is so good that it makes reading other books less enjoyable. Boy, can he write.' Angie Hart 'Very funny and packed with inventive expressions . . . This reads like a wittier, Gen-Y answer to perennial sellers such as Howard Marks' Mr Nice and James Frey's A Million Little Pieces .' Australian Bookseller+Publisher 'This is a book to be devoured quickly and then reflected on slowly. It's intimate, raw and occasionally heartbreaking. Pieper is a fiercely talented writer, and The Feel-Good Hit of the Year stands as one of the best Australian memoirs of the past few years.' [Url removed] 'Like all memoirs worth reading, Pieper's beautifully uncomplicated writing leaves you feeling nostalgic for a time and place you never even experienced.' Elle Australia 'A fast-paced, funny memoir.' GQ 'Compelling, funny and heart-rending.' Herald Sun 'Terrific. I'm pressing it on all my friends.' David Marr SKU: MM-40027278; EAN: 9780670077557, Penguin Aus., 2014, New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. Very Good. 1879. Hard Cover. Delivered before the new york historical society at the academy of music decembre 30 1978. black hardcover. the book is clean and without any marks. American poet and newspaper editor, b. Cummington, Mass. The son of a learned and highly respected physician, Bryant was exposed to English poetry in his fatherfs vast library. As a boy he became devoted to the New England countryside and was a keen observer of nature. In his early poems such as gThanatopsis,h gTo a Waterfowl,h gInscription for the Entrance to a Wood,h and gThe Yellow Violet,h all written before he was 21, he celebrated the majesty of nature in a style that was influenced by the English romantics but also reflected a personal simplicity and dignity. Admitted to the bar in 1815 after a year at Williams and private study, Bryant practiced law in Great Barrington, Mass., until 1825, when he went to New York City. By that time he was already known as a poet and critic. He became associate editor of the New York Evening Post in 1826, and from 1829 to his death he was part owner and editor in chief. An industrious and forthright editor of a highly literate paper, he was a defender of human rights and an advocate of free trade, abolition of slavery, and other reforms. He also holds an important place in literature as the earliest American theorist of poetry. In his Lectures on Poetry (delivered 1825; published 1884) and other critical essays he stressed the values of simplicity, original imagination, and morality. During his later career Bryant traveled widely, made many public speeches, and continued to write a few poems (e.g., gThe Death of the Flowers,h gTo the Fringed Gentian,h and gThe Battle-Fieldh). His blank verse translation of the Iliad appeared in 1870, that of the Odyssey in 1872; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall ., Charles Scribner's Sons, 1879, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, Publisher, 1971. First Edition . Hardcover. Fine in Near Fine Dust Jacket/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Dust Jacket Design By Paul Bacon; Book Design By Virginia Tan. First printing of the Knopf hardcover edition of Davidson's fifth novel. viii, 264pp. Putty cloth, gilt spine and front cover lettering and design, orange/brown top-stain, cream endpapers, deckled fore-edge. Dust jacket price 5.95. Book appears in fine, tight, unread condition; tan uncoated dust jacket has slight soiling but still very crisp and fully intact. Lionel Davidson is one of the best British 20th-century thriller and adventure writers along with Eric Ambler, Hammond Innes and Geoffrey Household. He is the winner of the 2001 Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger Lifetime Achievement Award, and is a three-times winner of the Gold Dagger Award (for 'The Night of Wenceslas', 'A Long Way to Shiloh' ['The Menorah Men']and 'The Chelsea Murders' ['Murder Games']'). His thrillers and adventure novels have won him enormous international acclaim. "In a novel bursting with the suspense, wit, feeling, and grace that brought popular and critical success to 'The Menorah Men', 'The Rose of Tibet', and 'The Night of Wenceslas', Lionel Davidson weaves a superlative new entertainment around the discovery, in the Israel desert, of a beautiful, supposedly extinct creature - Smith's gazelle.Six are sighted by an incredulous naturalist. Before he can get anyone to believe it, three are eaten by Arab tribesmen. Then a French colonel, a passionate hunter, arrives on the scene. Now there are two. One more falls prey to a Beduin's hunger. But the last gazelle-a female in kid-has a mother's sense to run like hell, down into the ravine ...Down into the ravine, after a passage of years, come two boys, enemies by birth. Jonathan, nine-year-old rebel and runaway from the nearby kibbutz, and Musallem who has come from the other side of the ravine, from the Beduin encampment, in search of a missing father. Both boys have been taught since infancy to hate, to cast the first stone. But something miraculous is in the ravine - the arid land flowering, an endangered breed multiplying into a fruitful flock, tended by Hamud, the aged, one-eyed Arab shepherd who fled into the ravine as an outcast with blood on his hands and thought he heard God's voice appointing him to a holy task...Overhead the shelling begins. To Jews and Arabs, it is the Six-Day War. To Hamud, it is the long-awaited Last Command. To Smith's gazelle, it is the threat of extinction once again . . .The opulence and fragility of nature, the love and violence of man, are magically evoked in a novel that holds the reader enthralled as it unfolds the fate of two tough and touching small boys, a God-crazed old man, and that fragile, imperiled - but gloriously prolific --exemplar of the life force, Smith's gazelle." - dust jacket flaps. "It has been more than a decade since I read Lionel Davidson's 'Smith's Gazelle', but I remember it as a delight. Davidson, an Englishman and an Israeli, sets his story in Israel, as his protagonists collaborate with an Israeli officer in trying to locate a rare species of gazelle that they are not sure even still exists. It is hard to convey what makes this book such a delight. More economically plotted that Davidson's earlier novels, and offering fewer "thrills" and dangers, it nevertheless may be the best of this master storyteller's works." - adenphora. "'Smith's Gazelle' succeeds on many levels - as the story of Bedu and kibbutzim co-existing as children, fighting as adults; as the story of an endangered specie whose fragile durability is emblematic of the shared hopes of the common people in disputed land; as a story of conservation and nature. Davidson writes with genius from the points of view of a crazed Bedouin shepherd without a nose, of a nine year old Bedouin boy, of a nine year old Israeli boy. His love for his story and its people shines through, and the story moves with a briskness which is rare in something so well-written. It's a hugely good book." - Timothy J. Gollin., Alfred A. Knopf, Publisher, 1971
