Everyone wants a friend. Everyone needs a friend. Friends support us, understand us, and lend a sympathetic ear or hand when needed. They are the ones with whom we can let down our guard and be ourselves. In Why We are Friends, Gregory E. Lang celebrates the joys and blessings of friendship. Friends "can have fun doing almost anything or just hanging out and doing nothing," he writes. Sometimes we seek out friendship, other times it come to us unexpectedly. Either way, we are always the better for finding a true friend. Each is unique, and although one can never replace another, somehow we always seem to find room in our hearts for just one more. When you call another person "friend," you pay him or her your highest compliment. Why We are Friends is a gift book that one friend can give to another to say, "I value you, and I am thankful you're in my life. I hope I have been as good a friend to you as you have been to me."

"I was a difficult child. I tormented my parents with my struggles for independence, disrespect, and disobedience. I was a rebel without a clue. I was not unlike most children and teenagers. I am pretty sure I rarely showed appreciation for what my mom did for me and gave to me. I simple didn't say thank you when I should have. This is my chance. Thank you, Mom." - Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Lang says that there were many times when hew as hard on his mother and brought pain to her heart. Many times he didn't have the wisdom to take responsibility for his actions or the humility to admit that he was wrong. And yet she loved and cared for him in spite of his misconduct and ingratitude. Now, years later as a parent himself experiencing the tensions of parenting firsthand, he writes Thank You, Mom to express his gratitude to his mother, not just for the many sacrifices she made on his behalf, but also for the patience she extended to him in those turbulent years. In short, he thanks her for never giving up on him. He knows that he can't possibly thank his mother enough for everything she did for him while he was growing up, but in these pages he tries. In doing so, he touches on many universal themes that mothers and their children have always shared. "Thank you for loving me so much when it didn't seem that I loved you at all." "Thank you for helping me with my homework." "Thank you for making sure I learned to understand and respect 'no.'" "Thank you for teaching me how to do my own laundry." "Thank you for listening to me." "Thank you for protecting me from the dangers I couldn't see." Thank You, Mom is a gift book for anyone who wants to tell that special woman that you love her, that you know what she did for you, and that you look to her as the model for what it means to be a parent.

How does a little girl find her way in a world where nothing is sacred? In 2004, Tony Hendra's memoir Father Joe: The Man Who Saved My Soul, spent thirteen weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The book detailed his life as a comedian who helped launch the careers of John Belushi and Chevy Chase, wrote for and edited The National Lampoon, and performed in such cult classics as This Is Spinal Tap, even as he overindulged in alcohol and drugs. But there was a glaring omission in his supposed tell-all confessional: the sexual abuse of his daughter Jessica. After more than thirty years of silence, Jessica faced a harrowing choice. In this powerful book, she reveals how she came to the decision to publicly confront her father, sacrificing any hope of reconciling with him and setting into motion a New York Times investigation that shocked the literary world when it broke the story of abuse. But Jessica's account is neither a minor footnote nor an angry response to her dad's bestseller. How to Cook Your Daughter -- titled after a satirical piece her father wrote only a few months before the abuse began -- is an unflinching and unsentimental look at a childhood that never was, set in a time and place straight from the pages of the outrageous magazine that her father helped to create. Against the backdrop of the 1970s New York comedy scene, the memoir traces Jessica's journey from a lost and abused child to a young woman struggling with bulimia and anorexia to the mother of two who becomes convinced that challenging her father is the only way to reclaim a life that never seemed her own.
