Marriage Bureau

Summary

At a time when internet dating is booming across all ages and classes and women are setting the agenda as never before, some things have not changed: you can’t always leave love to chance. And whether the search begins with an app in the 21st century or a visit to two young but savvy matchmakers in the 1940s, the desire for lifelong happiness with a perfectly suited partner remains the same. This is the remarkable true story of the Marriage Bureau; its successes, its rare failures and its many clients. Told with wit and honesty in Mary and Heather’s own words, it is now published for the first time as an audiobook.

Dog Songs

Summary

A New York Times best-selling collection of new and favorite poems, celebrating the dogs that have enriched the poet’s world Beloved by her fans, special to the poet’s own heart, Mary Oliver’s dog poems offer a special window into her world. Dog Songs collects some of the most cherished poems together with new works, offering a portrait of Oliver’s relationship to the companions that have accompanied her daily walks, warmed her home, and inspired her work. These are poems of love and laughter, heartbreak and grief. In these pages we visit with old friends, including Oliver’s well-loved Percy, and meet still others. Throughout, the many dogs of Oliver’s life emerge as fellow travelers, but also as guides, spirits capable of opening our eyes to the lessons of the moment and the joys of nature and connection. Dog Songs is a testament to the power and depth of the human-animal exchange, from an observer of extraordinary vision.
