Based on personal stories as well as advice that she has accrued from years of coaching, this lively and readable book shows parents how to: -communicate at long distances -discuss financial issues without using money as a form of control -speak up when disapproving of an adult child's partner or childrearing practices -handle adult children's career choices or other midlife changes -navigate an adult child's interreligious, interracial or same sex relationships No other book treats the challenges of parent and adult offspring relationships as part and parcel of a healthy family dynamic. This practical lessons of Don't Bite Your Tongue will help parents play a vital and positive role in their children's lives.

The author Spike infuses this book of poems with an authentic voice. The reader gets the sense that these anecdotes are largely autobiographical, written as a way that the author can help make sense of the world around her. There is nothing pretentious or 'showy' here - just a clean window into one person's soul. While the work is gritty and edgy, many readers will be happy to know that throughout, the author never seems to lose her faith in God, and the chance for a brighter tomorrow.

Bite Your Tongue When You Give Me My Name

DescriptionFollowing her debut book, 'Patterns of Mourning' Melissa Lee-Houghton has written a new collection of original, raw-edged poems that are concerned with all things both abject and sublime. Love meets violence, death meets clarity; the theme of sex dominates many of the poems as for the writer, it always brings about the question of domination and submission, of the will, if not the senses. She writes to try to find answers as to how we are to love; and if we can maintain loving relationships after abuse has happened. Early recollections and experiences find powerful resonance now that the writer is in her mid-twenties, and the newness of family life and marital love have given her the space to understand herself and her addiction to writing. Many of these poems were composed during periods of 'illness' as Melissa's Bipolar symptoms have worsened over the years. She has also been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder; and the intense, confessional, blunt and argumentative tone in her work is her way of expressing her personality and her identity outside of medicine and psychiatry, outside of stereotypes and stigma. About the AuthorMelissa Lee-Houghton was born in Wythenshawe 1982 to a young mother whose unstable relationship with her husband caused the family to uproot. Melissa has no recollection of her father. She enjoyed a childhood made magical in its promise and naivety but the happiness was equally matched by disturbing and abusive experiences. By the age of 11, Melissa had seen a psychiatrist as she would no longer attend school and had begun a severe depression which lasted the duration of her school years and made it impossible for her to attend. Instead, she was treated and admitted to psychiatric services for anxiety, depression and self-harm, and the makings of what turned out to be full-blown Bipolar Affective moodswings and psychosis. She feels her illness is an enduring trauma with which she chronically battles with medications. Writing, to her, is necessity. Melissa has two children, and suffered PNI and Puerperal Psychosis following their births. Melissa's debut book, Patterns of Mourning is available through Chipmunka. Melissa is currently working on a new project focussing on composing literary 'portraits' of some wonderfully diverse people from all walks of life.

This survey catalogue of the American figurative painter, his first in London since 2000, highlights key aspects of the artist's oeuvre from the 1950s until his death in 2004.Golub's paintings from the 1950s depict universal images of man and reference the classical figure found in antiquity, while his highly political series of the 1970s and 1980s draws on the Vietnam War, American foreign policy and the rise of paramilitary soldiers in places such as South Africa and Latin America.His work from the 1990s incorporates slogans, text, graffiti and symbols into dystopian scenes of urban existence.Throughout his career Golub was guided by his belief that art should have relevance. His works are profoundly psychological and emotive - often painted on a huge scale - and return again and again to themes of oppression, violence and the misuse of power.This publication features a conversation between Helaine Posner, Katy Kline, Leon Golub and Nancy Spero.Published on the occasion of the exhibition Leon Golub: Bite Your Tongue at Serpentine Gallery, London, 4 March - 17 May 2015.
