✏Dogs Children and Other Wild Things Book Summary : Dogs, Children, and other Wild Things is a collection of ten stories using the personalities of real people in improbable circumstances. It is somewhere between Alice in Wonder Land, and The Wizard of Oz in the first three stories. Three girls face dangers and adventure in a fantasyland of Screamers and Book Worms. Using their own abilities, with assistance from grandpa to get in and out of the fantasy land, they end up with a unique treasure which will serve them well for going to school and acing the tests. The next five stories are about unusual situations, some of them non-human, and how they were resolved. And the last two are love stories, different from those in most romances. The stories can be read independently with enjoyment. However, since the personalities of the members of a real family are woven throughout them, they are best read from first to last. You are suddenly in a forest with a nine foot high bear and a ten foot high bird: Do you stop reading the story, or do you go along for the adventures to the very end? Your sister is a queen in the land of the Screamers. Can you rescue her? "X" and "Y" have been eaten by the giant Omni. Will all the computers in the world go bonkers? Are bees like wasps? Can you survive? Are wolves married? Do you have any other Questions? Is the US President about to be killed? Is this a job for Spy Dog? Can you become a billionaire? Ever try the Golden Gas? Have you ever watched a worm? What did you think about? Ever been ignored by someone you love? Did you try raisins? From your front yard you wave at an airplane. Can it be too high for you to hear it? Get the answers to these questions by reading, Dogs, Children, and other Wild Things Leo Farr is happily married and has five children and five grandchildren. He is presently retired from the State of California and living in Sacramento, California.

✏The Peace of Wild Things Book Summary : If you stop and look around you, you'll start to see. Tall marigolds darkening. A spring wind blowing. The woods awake with sound. On the wooden porch, your love smiling. Dew-wet red berries in a cup. On the hills, the beginnings of green, clover and grass to be pasture. The fowls singing and then settling for the night. Bright, silent, thousands of stars. You come into the peace of simple things. From the author of the 'compelling' and 'luminous' essays of The World-Ending Fire comes a slim volume of poems. Tender and intimate, these are consoling songs of hope and of healing; short, simple meditations on love, death, friendship, memory and belonging. They celebrate and elevate what is sensuous about life, and invite us to pause and appreciate what is good in life, to stop and savour our fleeting moments of earthly enjoyment. And, when fear for the future keeps us awake at night, to come into the peace of wild things.

✏Domesticated Wild Things and Other Stories Book Summary : Just down the highway from Connecticut's Gold Coast is the state's rusty underbelly, the wretched, used-up sort of place where you might find Xhenet Aliu's Domesticated Wild Things: the reluctant mothers, delinquent dads, and not-quite-feral children, yet dreamers all. These are the children of immigrants who found boarded-up brass mills instead of the gilded streets of America; they're the teenaged girls raised in the fluorescent glow of Greek diners, the middle-aged men with pump trucks and teratomas. These are people who have fled, or who should have. And if they are indeed familiar, it is because Aliu writes what is real, whether we ourselves, her readers, have seen it up close or not. And her stories make sense in a way that matters. A young mother buys into a real-estate investment seminar offered on an infomercial, only to be put back into her place by a bully in foreclosure. A closeted wrestler befriends a latchkey seven-year-old neighbor who harbors secrets of her own. A YMCA counselor tries to reclaim shoes stolen by a troubled young camper. What they share is a biting humor, an eye for the absurd, and fumbling attempts at human connection, all rendered irresistible--and as moving as they are amusing--by a writer whose work is at once edgy and endearing and prize winning for reasons any reader can appreciate.

✏How to Tame Beasts and Other Wild Things Book Summary : "My name is Matilda Pearl. My life is a non-stop riddle I hope to one day solve. "I've learned to protect my heart; fate has dealt me more than a few shit cards in my twenty-two years. Invisibility tops my list, not to mention tragedy. "I was yanked out of a Paris-France life by my ass of a father, and thrown into a one year journey on a farm in Wisconsin. I've been assigned the impossible: Wife Catcher. Simply put, until I replace myself I'm Mary Poppins, the beast tamer, ringmaster of the unruly, complete with twin toddlers and a beast of a man. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to my three-ring circus. "The Beast - Balthazar Cox - is in that sexy, I-just-died-and-went-to-heaven sort of repulsive. He walks the earth like he owns it, with his tatted trunk of a body and chiseled-rough, blazing good looks. The beastly Brit - did I mention that he's English? - also happens to be my widowed brother-in-law, a man haunted by betrayal and abandonment, and for whom I'm on task to find a wife. If I succeed I'll be rewarded with my juicy trust fund. And, yes, it will happen. You can keep your diamonds and designer clothes.... With my bag of loot, I plan on becoming the Patron Saint of Lost and Found Animals. "When the past resurfaces more than once for both of us, all hell breaks loose. Can you be lost and found at once? In other words, sometimes lies can be cathartic. Some people heal us; some of us heal others. "This is mostly a love story, an unlikely sexy romance with whiplash twists, boundaries that shouldn't be crossed, and multiple risks of losing everything. It may have more heartache, and drama than some but in the end it's about truth, discovery and forgiveness. Maybe it was wrong to fall for him. Or maybe the hole in his heart was always waiting for me to fill it. Now there's a riddle for you." Tender, textured, suspenseful and triumphant. A mind-blowing, fast-paced, sexually-tense passion that is an emotional ride of second chances, healing and redemption. A full-length, standalone New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, and mature topics this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

If you can (ahem) swallow that, then beneath all the sex, humour and bravado you will find a vulnerable, honest, touching tale of what it means to be human... Approach it with an open mind, and what you get is a story about change that will, in fact, change you." Three words. Irreverent. Uplifting. Life-changing."

✏Love and Other Ways of Dying Book Summary : LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY KIRKUS REVIEWS • In this moving, lyrical, and ultimately uplifting collection of essays, Michael Paterniti turns a keen eye on the full range of human experience, introducing us to an unforgettable cast of everyday people. Michael Paterniti is one of the most original and empathic storytellers working today. His writing has been described as “humane, devastating, and beautiful” by Elizabeth Gilbert, “spellbinding” by Anthony Doerr, and “expansive and joyful” by George Saunders. In the seventeen wide-ranging essays collected for the first time in Love and Other Ways of Dying, he brings his full literary powers to bear, pondering happiness and grief, memory and the redemptive power of human connection. In the remote Ukranian countryside, Paterniti picks apples (and faces mortality) with a real-life giant; in Nanjing, China, he confronts a distraught jumper on a suicide bridge; in Dodge City, Kansas, he takes up residence at a roadside hotel and sees, firsthand, the ways in which the racial divide turns neighbor against neighbor. In each instance, Paterniti illuminates the full spectrum of human experience, introducing us to unforgettable everyday people and bygone legends, exploring the big ideas and emotions that move us. Paterniti reenacts François Mitterrand’s last meal in a rustic dining room in France and drives across America with Albert Einstein’s brain in the trunk of his rental car, floating in a Tupperware container. He delves with heartbreaking detail into the aftermath of a plane crash off the coast of Nova Scotia, an earthquake in Haiti, and a tsunami in Japan—and, in searing swirls of language, unearths the complicated, hidden truths these moments of extremity teach us about our ability to endure, and to love. Michael Paterniti has spent the past two decades grappling with some of our most powerful subjects and incomprehensible events, taking an unflinching point of view that seeks to edify as it resists easy answers. At every turn, his work attempts to make sense of both love and loss, and leaves us with a profound sense of what it means to be human. As he writes in the Introduction to this book, “The more we examine the grooves and scars of this life, the more free and complete we become.” Praise for Michael Paterniti and Love and Other Ways of Dying “One of the best books I’ve read all year . . . These pieces are exceptional artifacts of literary journalism.”—Mark O’Connell, Slate “These pieces are extraordinary. . . . Journalism elevated beyond its ordinary capacities, well into the realm of literature.”—Columbia Journalism Review “A fearless, spellbinding collection of inquiries by a brilliant, globally minded essayist whose writing is magic and whose worldview brims with compassion . . . The size of Michael Paterniti’s curiosity is matched only by the size of his heart.”—Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See “Michael Paterniti is a genius.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of The Signature of All Things “One of the best living practitioners of the art of literary journalism, able to fully elucidate and humanize the everyday and the epic.”—Dave Eggers, author of The Circle “In each of these essays, Michael Paterniti unveils life for us, the beauty and heartbreak of it, as we would never see it ourselves but now can never forget it. Paterniti is brilliant—a rare master—and one of my favorite authors on earth.”—Lily King, author of Euphoria
