Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Of the many dynamic, young playwrights to be associated with the “In-Yer-Face” burst of creative talent on the British stage in the mid–1990s, Joe Penhall has challenged Britain’s status quo the most. Penhall believes his plays should constantly provoke and enrage not only the institutions he targets, but also his audience. This critical book discusses the argumentative nature of Penhall’s plays, while also placing them within the context of contemporary British society and the modern dramatic tradition. His eight plays are discussed in detail, and particular attention is paid to male identity, the nature of grief, the variety of females, domestic drama, and the role of autobiography in his work.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Each person is an enigma. Youre a puzzle not only to yourself but also to everyone else, and the great mystery of our time is how we penetrate this puzzle. We are social animals, and unless we engage God, we can never resolve and understand the truth that lies at the bottom of an enigma of interdependence relationship. A legendary poet wrote, People are fascinating. Theyre so unique and I think whats more fascinating is the reason behind the physical characteristic, the enigma, thats where the gold dust is. Life is never a mystery and a harmful enigma unless we try to interpret it from our human brand or prospective as though it had no underlying truth. The reality is that every person believes in something (be it true or false). Our beliefs modify our behavior. I have put together this journal for you with epic passion projecting the phenomenal person that God intended you to be. Wrong perception of life issues makes man a wrong person. It is my prayer that by reading this book you will be enlightened and inspired to solve the puzzle of life from the prospective of the Creator of life. Certainly, the most important thing that God can give to us is the truth about life. God created us to live passionately but not passively. That is why he instructed us to love him with all our hearts and to love our neighbors as we love our selves.

Then, he follows with a selection of religion tenured poems ranging from the obtuse to the obvious.

Poetic Pete then welcomes us with several of his latest lyrics spanning subjects such as love, heartbreak, and even politics. And in conclusion, he ends the book with a couple short stories
Download or read Poker s Strangest Hands PDF, written by Graham Sharpe and published by Portico. This book was released on 2015-03-05 with total page 222 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Romping through crooked games, dodgy players, exotic venues and incredible hands, 'Poker's Strangest Hands' celebrates the strange history of Poker's most celebrated tournament, its World Championship event and the characters who have graced it with their presence, compiles some of the strangest things said about the game and fully records the details of the strangest Poker Year yet, 2006. The Poker world is divided between those who believe the game to be the most skilled contest ever devised, and those who believe that success in the game relies on pure luck. Sharpe's thorough excavations through long forgotten archives of the game have uncovered the first ever Poker cheat, who was literally making a spectacle of himself in 1829; has unearthed the game which reportedly lasted for 24 years; exposed the US President who gambled away the White House crockery; and discovered that a certain member of the Royal family was very much amused by Poker. Whatever your view this book will appeal to the novice player who can barely tell his flops from his nuts, and equally to the connoisseur of the subtleties of Poker who has developed and matured his or her skills over many years.
