PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY: Who says parenting has to be serious? Here Chapple ( Rock 'n' Roll Is Here to Pay, Kayaking the Full Moon ) takes a humorous look at the joys, trials and tribulations of dealing with an infant. Mr. Baby, of course, is more sophisticated than grownups give him credit for. He has his own opinions on everything discussed by his smitten new dad and does not hesitate to state them in a cryptic running commentary. Some of the topics covered in these conversations are lack of sleep (Mom calls the first few post-birth weeks the "Zombie Express"), naming Mr. Baby ("not Odin. Please!") and the three things that define older babies: peekaboo, cuteness and belly button curiosity. A list of "Shamelessly Sentimental Things That Make It All Worthwhile" wraps up the book, which gains added charm. . . . Irreverent and outspoken. . . this chipper account will please new and expectant parents who need a few laughs." A humorous look at a baby's first twenty-four months and the emotional wear and tear his growth has on young parents.

At least this is Montana as Mr. Chapple has rediscovered it for himself, and in Kayaking the Full Moon he gathers evidence to make it ring true."Â ?After living in San Francisco and becoming fed up with urban life like so many Americans, Steve Chapple and his family decided to return to his native Montana and kayak the length of the Yellowstone River, the longest unspoiled and undammed river in the continental United States. The tale of a journey of discovery, Kayaking the Full Moon evokes the dangers and beauty of a wild landscape, Montana's diverse--and sometimes quirky--human inhabitants, and the power and wonder that one family experiences.Â ?WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD--"A graceful writer with a journalist's sharp eye and a heart as big as his subject Chapple...makes a fine traveling companion....Anyone who has ever been fortunate enough to lose himself in Montana's vastness will feel instantly at home between this book's covers"--HAMPTON SIDESÂ ?JOE KANE, author of Running the Amazon: "A book for every one of us who...dreams of gathering up the kids and striking out for the Last Good Place."Â ??TOM MCGUANE, author of CROW FAIR, THE SPORTING CLUB, MORE: "A sensitive and sensible book in search of Montana's calico soul."Â LET THE MOUNTAINS TALK, LET THE RIVERS RUN: A Call to those who would save the Earth by David Brower with Steve Chapple"This is the testament of one of the few authentic sages of our time.

Sean O'Reilly's debut novel is a journey into the dark pysche of Niall, a young man on the run from the past and denying himself a future. Arriving in Derry, years after he left for a wandering life - from city to city in Europe, from woman to woman - Niall finds that little has changed. The streets are still blighted by sectarian violence and the pubs in the city still cater for the lost and lonely in this grey and unforgiving world. Just as his memories, fears or desires threaten to consume him, Niall enters into a dangerous relationship with Lorna, a committed socialist with a dark side of her own. Haunted by a past that only gradually gives up its secrets and insensate through a cocktail of booze and drugs, Niall lives his life to extremes, testing the limits of those around him and pushing himself ever closer to destruction. Love and Sleep confirms O'Reilly's reputation as a writer of rare lyrical power and urgency.
