As I find gems, I'll post them here. Feel free to pitch a book to me for a potential review.
Oh, yes. I'll let you know about my clients' books, too. But I'll disclose that my clients are my clients. ... they wouldn't want it any other way.

The Andy Williams Performing Arts
Center is proud to announce that it has won the City Beautification
Award. The Tree Board presents Beautification

Theatre Manager, Icy Wyatt accepted the award on behalf of
Jimmy Osmond. "We are honored that the theatre is receiving this

RANDOLPH, MA, May 14 — Free Fresh Fruits and Produce
Distribution takes place every Thursday from 2:00 to 3:00 PM at 592 North Main
Street, Powers Farm, Randolph, Massachusetts.
The initiative started during the government shutdown when a
few concerned Randolph residents reached out to Town Councillor Natacha
Clerger to help one family. "I would cook food and bring it over to
the kids while the parents were at work," Clerger recalls. "Then it
was three families, and then ten. Since I could not afford to feed so many, I approached
a few contacts that I have in Boston, and that was the beginning. I had so much
produce to donate the first day that I decided to open it to the entire town
and anyone who feels the need." …
How can catatonia be a major psychiatric illness when no-one
knows what it is? Could it be that psychiatry has lost touch with the real
mental disorders? The question is important because catatonia is probably more
treatable than anything else in psychiatry. And it affects one patient in every
ten with a serious illness — but first it has to be recognized.
It is not a form of “schizophrenia,” and does not respond
well to the anti-schizophrenic drugs that many doctors might be inclined to use.
In his novel, The Winter Soldier, Daniel Mason writes of a World War I
soldier's body that is curled up among a pile of roots: "Alive...But it
doesn’t move. It doesn’t speak." The fictional soldier's body only
twitches when someone touches his shoulder. "The man’s eyes were wide, his
nose flared, as he tried to take in breath. But no words, nothing save the
flinch, the stare," the novel continues.
That is a fair description of catatonia, a bodily condition.
