And my head raises up from the homemade paper on which I write this newsletter under the mysterious reveal of candlelight and I see. . .oh hello there. We have been busy. Thanks for your patience last month with the tardy newsletter. I like to believe you were all checking your inboxes daily until it finally appeared. It is possible you have other things to worry about so my fantasy may be just that. We have had a lovely time with a book launch (see below), some lovely conferences, some grand exchanges in the shop as well as through electronic mail, and even the odd celebrity customer.
May will be our busiest month in a long time. We are at so many events that it will be harder to not bump into us than anything else. We run around like happy chickens with a purpose (as well as fully intact heads) and we drop the odd thing and have to pick it up again. The HQ on Harbord street is forever in a state of flux. Books are coming and going. If you ever find yourself with an obstacle between you and the section you would like to browse then please let us know and we will remove the obstacle. You are always correct to ask and we are always incorrect to have the obstacle. Though the state of our affairs means that the obstacles keep appearing we do endeavour to remove them until they stay gone. Thanks for reading and please, read below. So many new titles and gorgeous. . .titles.

The Soul of Narcissism
Christian Fierens

The notion of narcissism introduced by Sigmund Freud has become a victim of its own success. On the one hand, with its emphasis on self-love and new forms of well-being, it can take the form of a celebration of the self. On the other, with its range of negatively associated character traits, it has given rise to a burgeoning field of narcissistic pathologies. [More. . .]

Ghosts Within: Journeying Through PTSD
Garry Leech

Leech removes some of the stigmas, fears and ignorance related to PTSD in particular, and mental illness in general, by shedding light on a largely invisible illness that mostly manifests itself behind the closed doors of our homes. Ultimately, the book uses a journalist’s journey through PTSD to provide a message of hope for all those who suffer from this illness. [More. . .]

The New Evil: Understanding the Emergence of Violent Crime
Michael H. Stone

Revisiting Dr. Michael Stone's groundbreaking 22-level Gradations of Evil Scale, a hierarchy of evil behavior first introduced in the book The Anatomy of Evil, Stone and Dr. Gary Brucato, a fellow violence and serious psychopathology expert, here provide even more detail, using dozens of cases to exemplify the categories along the continuum. The New Evil also presents compelling evidence that, since a cultural tipping-point in the 1960s, certain types of violent crime have emerged that in earlier decades never or very rarely occurred.

Freud In Cambridge
Ellie Kazemi, Brian Rice, and Peter Adzhyan

Freud may never have set foot in Cambridge - that hub for the twentieth century's most influential thinkers and scientists - but his intellectual impact there in the years between the two World Wars was immense. This is a story that has long languished untold, buried under different accounts of the dissemination of psychoanalysis. [more]
My cat tortures ants. She picks them up with her teeth and shakes them vigorously from side to side. Then she puts them back down and then lets them try and fight for their life for a moment or two. She repeats the process and eventually provides the ant with a slow, and painful, death. Her name is Xena. Do not copy Xena's approach please. Try and find the beauty in others instead of contributing to the groundwork for a slow, and painful, death.
