Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Buy now to get the main key ideas from Casey Wilson's The Wreckage of My Presence Casey Wilson is an actress, comedian, mother, and above all, lifetime fan of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Wilson’s book, The Wreckage of My Presence (2021), is her unflinching thoughts and feelings about a smattering of subjects, from cults and spin classes (which aren’t all that different) to the reality of spiritual healers in Hollywood. But the book also dives into much deeper and intimate issues, like Wilson’s never-ending struggles with her weight as an actress, the pressures with raising children, and most prominently, the death of her mother. Wilson hopes that, if nothing else, her book makes you realize that the life of a Hollywood actress can be as shallow, insignificant, riddled with guilt and paranoia, and comically bizarre as everyone else’s.

Book The Wreckage of My Presence

Download or read book The Wreckage of My Presence written by Casey Wilson and published by HarperCollins. This book was released on 2021-05-04 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Magnificent." —People Magazine The instant New York Times bestseller: Laugh-out-loud, deeply insightful, and emotion-filled essays from multitalented actress, comedian, podcaster, and writer Casey Wilson. Casey Wilson has a lot on her mind and she isn’t afraid to share. In this dazzling collection, each essay skillfully constructed and brimming with emotion, she shares her thoughts on the joys and vagaries of modern-day womanhood and motherhood, introduces the not-quite-typical family that made her who she is, and persuasively argues that lowbrow pop culture is the perfect lens through which to examine human nature. Whether she’s extolling the virtues of eating in bed, processing the humiliation over her father’s late in life perm, mourning her mother's passing, or revealing her patented method for keeping the mystery alive in a marriage, Casey is witty, candid, and full of poignant and funny surprises. Humorous dives into her obsessions and areas of personal expertise—self-help, nice guys, cool girls (not her) and how to receive visitors in the bath—are matched by touching meditations on female friendship, anger, grief, motherhood, and identity. Reading The Wreckage of My Presence is like spending time with a close friend—a deeply passionate, full-tilt, joyous, excessive, compulsive, shameless, hungry-for-it-all, loyal, cheerleading friend. A friend who is ready for any big feelings that come her way—and isn’t afraid to embrace them.

Book excerpt: “Do you remember Savannah?” How could she forget? Two decades ago, Trinity Calhoun's best friend—18-year-old Savannah Stuart—went missing. Just weeks later, Savannah’s body was found brutally slain outside the mountain town. With no suspects or leads, the local authorities dismissed the murder as a tragic one-off, likely perpetrated by a tourist. But Trinity wasn’t convinced. Determined to do better for other victims, she left town and settled in Vancouver, rising through the ranks to become a detective. She’s never looked back. But now, an unexpected phone call from her former lover has her barreling down the highway to face the past. Another young woman has disappeared under eerily similar circumstances. Allegedly. But the local police are disinterested. Trinity’s ex has a tenuous—at best—hold on his mental and physical health. And Savannah’s secretive and handsome brother is in town, asking an awful lot of questions. Trinity’s focus is clouded. Maybe her judgment, too. As she wades through her past, she needs to answer a potentially life-threatening question: is there a dangerous, repeat criminal on the loose, or is she just desperate for closure?

Zebra is the last in a line of anarchists, atheists, and autodidacts. When war came, her family didn't fight; they took refuge in books. Now alone and in exile, Zebra leaves New York for Barcelona, retracing the journey she and her father made from Iran to the United States years ago. Books are Zebra's only companions--until she meets Ludo. Their connection is magnetic; their time together fraught. Zebra overwhelms him with her complex literary theories, her concern with death, and her obsession with history. He thinks she's unhinged; she thinks he's pedantic. Neither are wrong; neither can let the other go. They push and pull their way across the Mediterranean, wondering with each turn if their love, or lust, can free Zebra from her past. An adventure tale, a love story, and a paean to the power of language and literature starring a heroine as quirky as Don Quixote, as introspective as Virginia Woolf, as whip-smart as Miranda July, and as spirited as Frances Ha, Call Me Zebra will establish Van der Vliet Oloomi as an author "on the verge of developing a whole new literature movement" (Bustle).

Book excerpt: “Crawford’s absorbing account of his first adventures in the salvage trade . . . an unusually likeable, as well as interesting, memoir.” —The Scotsman In 1971 Alec Crawford is determined to make his fortune from ship salvage. Early attempts lead nowhere until he teams up with a new partner, Simon Martin. Diving in Hebridean waters, they explore remains of the Spanish Armada, and the wreck of the SS Politician, the vessel made famous in the film Whisky Galore! But money is scarce and irregular, and the work is fraught with danger and disappointment. Until they hear of one of the most incredible wrecks of all time—the White Star liner RMS Oceanic, which, when built in 1899, was the biggest and most luxurious ship in the world. Widely regarded as an “undiveable” wreck, lying somewhere off the remote island of Foula, they decide to take the challenge. They face unbelievably dangerous waters and appalling weather conditions, and when a large salvage company takes action against them, they also have a huge legal fight on their hands. But if they succeed, the rewards will be enormous . . . “Crawford pioneered many of the methods now used in deep sea recovery, but this book is more about the excitement than the technicalities. It is also a love song to Scotland and a vanishing way of life.” —Sorted Magazine “Crawford is a born story-teller, and his tales unfold as easily and naturally as he were an old friend.” —The Shetland Times “A story of genuine adventure.” —Desperate Reader

Book Free Refills

Book excerpt: Free Refills is the harrowing tale of a Harvard-trained medical doctor run horribly amok through his addiction to prescription medication, and his recovery. Dr. Peter Grinspoon seemed to be a total success: a Harvard-educated M.D. with a thriving practice; married with two great kids and a gorgeous wife; a pillar of his community. But lurking beneath the thin veneer of having it all was an addict fueled on a daily boatload of prescription meds. When the police finally came calling--after a tip from a sharp-eyed pharmacist--Grinspoon's house of cards came tumbling down fast. His professional ego turned out to be an impediment to getting clean as he cycled through recovery to relapse, his reputation, family life, and lifestyle in ruins. What finally moves him to recover and reclaim life--including working with other physicians who themselves are addicts--makes for inspiring reading.

Book excerpt: Youve probably met someone like Josie Madden. Youll have seen her avert her gaze as she hurries by, turned your head to look at her once shes passed. Shes middle aged, has a sweet, anxious face and a figure you think is far too good to waste on a woman like that. Nice but youd be wasting your time. Right? Mark Latimer doesnt think so. Hes lost his Frisbee in her garden, and true to his nature is checking her out. He decides hes going to be the first man to show her what its really like. The only thing Josie loves, apart from her son, Dominic, is taking photographs of wild flowers with her old camera. That provides Mark with his opportunity. A freelance photographer/journalist, he introduces her to modern cameras and re-ignites Josies passion for her hobby. He uses this as leverage to insinuate himself in her life. Hidden mysteries about her childhood that Josie herself can scarcely recall are revealed as the story gains pace. Helping us here are the private thoughts of her mother Belinda, lying paralysed and helpless in a nursing home. The story is told from the viewpoints of these three people, with the occasional intervention of the author. Mark imposes himself on Josie and plays her like a fish on a line. Matters come to a head when he receives an assignment in Iraq. Other characters broaden the tale. Marks two boozy brothers Josh and Smurf; Mary Allen, the sex siren who sunbathes naked next door; Marks Spanish stepmother Almeda, who in his teens relieved him of his virginity; and Josies ex-husband Dorian, a nerd scientist who married Josie for her money. Haunting the story throughout is the spirit of Josies longed-for daughter, the little girl who will be called Celandine.

Book excerpt: True love seemed like something the Lord of the Dead could never hope to have. But when there is a prophecy at work... anything is possible. Content to be ignored by not only his wife, but the rest of the Olympians, Hades, Lord of the Dead has always been alone. Gruff and obstinate, Hades preferred the silence of his library to the chaos of the nursery and the troubles of the human world. His anger at the betrayal of the goddesses had more to do with being neglected than anything… it took a great deal to stir his passions, but when they awoke in him, he was a force to be reckoned with. Olympus is starting to feel like a home again, but while two of his brothers are basking in the glow of fatherhood, Hades has done nothing but scowl. For centuries he has been content to convince himself that he doesn’t need any of that noise and heartache. Escaping Olympus for Earth, he finds solace in the great libraries of Rome, but the oracle is not finished with the divine brothers, and Hades’ piece of the heavenly puzzle is about to fall into place. Gideon Vogel is just a librarian, but even he notices that there’s something different about the tall, brooding figure that stalks the dusty aisles of his ancient library. Aiden doesn’t talk much, but there’s something about him that Gideon can’t seem to chase from his mind. He’s not usually one to pursue, but he can’t seem to help himself… and just this once, it might be worth it to find out what’s happening behind those furious dark eyes.
