Humanity is facing extinction, and Penny Plain, elderly and blind, can only sit and wait for the end. After a heartbreaking farewell from her dog, Geoffrey, who leaves to live as a man, Penny faces the inevitable by herself. But she isn't alone for long as a cast of characters, including a serial killer, a cross-dressing banker, and talking dogs barge into her boarding house in pursuit of last chances and an escape from the hostile world outside. With this steady invasion, Penny bears witness to the funny and chilling consequences as mother earth cleans house and reclaims her ground.

Capoeira 100 is an illustrated guide to 100 essential techniques used in the art of capoeira. Each movement is accompanied by a series of color photographs that show how it is done, as well as helpful pointers and tips on how to apply the technique in the game of capoeira. The book is divided into sections for beginner, intermediate and advanced movements. Ground-work, kicks, escapes, "floreios," flying kicks, and acrobatic movements are all covered.Capoeira 100 is unique among English-language capoeira books in that it is illustrated by full-color photographs, and it focuses 100% on technique. Sequences of movements, drills, games, and conditioning exercises give the reader a chance to practice capoeira workouts at least a hundred times without ever repeating the same routine twice.These exercises can be done alone, and many can be done with a partner to create the real conditions of the game. Rather than being theoretical, all the information and instruction in this book are geared toward functional use, so that students can train at their optimal pace. Specificity of movements and exercises are structured to help readers achieve steady improvement of capoeira skills. Additionally, the author provides encouragement and no-nonsense advice, based on his 10+ years experience as a capoeira instructor and nearly 20 years as a player.Readers not affiliated with a capoeira club will find information about the capoeira game, and advice on etiquette and strategies of play. The glossary of 100 terms helps new players understand Portuguese descriptions used in Brazil. A question-and-answer section at the end of the book addresses some of the most frequently asked enquiries about this fascinating sport.This is an indispensable manual for those who have been searching for a concise "how-to" guide to capoeira techniques, and who are already connected with a capoeira group or teacher. It will be of interest as well to freestyle martial artists, dancers, actors, and others who increasingly look to capoeira for its inspiring and exciting techniques.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ... The old man made his way into the station and was at once swallowed up in its huge uneasy life. He was frightened of the crowd, which covered the platform in bunches, but was thin and straggling here and there with occasional isolated figures. His calm vanished, and he passed from group to group trying to find reasons for stopping somewhere. But where the groups were like solid lumps he was repulsed, and the straggling parts of the crowd infected him with their own anxiety, so that he ended by taking up a position between two placid-looking travellers, where he almost ceased to be afraid of missing the train. Bells vibrated, and the crowd, deeply stirred, suffered a change. A thousand links snapped or strained; the whole space swarmed with little moving forces, and was suddenly dotted with points, each of which formed the pivot of an eddy. Yet the general outlines were not altered. Godard could still see the two placid travellers beside him, with their bags on the ground against their legs; and there were the straggling lines, bulging with luggage, and the lumpy groups, still the same, except that they had shrunk a little. The noise of bells went on, like a frantic concentration of the passage of time. The crowd thought more and more intensely of the train. It felt it coming, with another crowd inside it--a calm crowd, that had sucked its fill of speed and was sleeping like a well-fed baby. The old man was in torments, and to calm his fears kept looking at his neighbours. He no longer felt that the journey was arranging itself, stage by stage, from his cottage to his son's body, or that the means of transport were fitted together without any effort of his own and waiting to sweep him along like a stream. "Shall I ever get there?" he...
