    Tiffany Mcdaniel

    A stunning, lyrical novel set in the rolling foothills of the Appalachians in which a young girl discovers stark truths that will haunt her for the rest of her life. "A girl comes of age against the knife." So begins the story of Betty Carpenter. Born in a bathtub in 1954 to a Cherokee father and white mother, Betty is the sixth of eight siblings. The world they inhabit is one of poverty and violence--both from outside the family, and also, devastatingly, from within. The lush landscape, rich with birdsong, wild fruit, and blazing stars, becomes a kind of refuge for Betty, but when her family's darkest secrets are brought to light, she has no choice but to reckon with the brutal history hiding in the hills, as well as the heart-wrenching cruelties and incredible characters she encounters in her rural town of Breathed, Ohio. But despite the hardship she faces, Betty is resilient. Her curiosity about the natural world, her fierce love for her sisters, and her father's brilliant stories are kindling for the fire of her own imagination, and in the face of all she bears witness to, Betty discovers an escape: she begins to write. She recounts the horrors of her family's past and present with pen and paper and buries them deep in the dirt--moments that has stung her so deeply, she could not tell them, until now. Dedicated to her mother, Tiffany McDaniel sets out to free the past by telling this heartbreaking yet magical story--a remarkable novel that establishes her as one of the freshest and most important voices in American fiction.

    When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be the most restrictive country in the world. Nevertheless, Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys. In his latest book, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer points his lens at North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective.

    De Keyzer is one of very few photographers who get almost-unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his 'Grand Tour' - taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes - are a testament to this country's uniqueness.

    Start to Draw is a fun and clear-cut guide to drawing and visualising your ideas in your work environment. It is an accessible, bite-size book providing insight into why drawing works, how you can have a great impact on your own (and others') professional work, and how you can end up with a more creative approach to your job.

  • In effective animation programming, one must be able to rely on theoretical knowledge as well as research-based insights in applicability. This updated version of Animation Maths contains an overview of both.

    In addition to exploring collision detection, it also puts forward a discussion of programmable kinematics. These physics of motion, designed to complement programming, offer an invaluable tool in adding realism to games and animations. Furthermore, screen effects and image handling are taken to a professional level by a detailed outline of all the basic transformations.

    The uniqueness of this book lies in its calculus-free approach. In order to cover the basics of the discipline, Animation Maths contains a brief summary of the fundamentals in arithmetics, solving systems and trigonometry. Animation Maths is accompanied by the website www.animationmaths.be which contains online support and useful downloads.

    "Animation Maths achieves a perfect balance between deductive mathematics and broad accessibility, particularly through its interactive companion site." Leo Storme (Pure Mathematics and Computer Algebra, UGent) "With Animation Maths, Ivo De Pauw and Bieke Masselis present motion related mathematical subjects, ranging from trigonometry to quaternions and kinematics in an understandable fashion. It's a true game developers toolkit." Fries Carton (Guerrilla Games, Amsterdam)
