OK, if you need more than two books to make it a ‘torrent’ then maybe our headline is a little misleading, but why get hung up on these things? Let’s just enjoy the fact that there are two more Caustic Cat books about to hit the world stage.
Tim Hooper’s ‘Toward the Heart of Counselling’ is a reflection on the process of moving from a trainee to a practicing counsellor and presents his thoughts on how his training relates to the reality of those initial counselling sessions. It will be of undoubted value to trainee and new counsellors as it raises many challenging and thought provoking issues, but more experienced counsellors will also find much of value to reflect on. For those outside the counselling it provides a fascinating insight into the demands placed on counsellors and the attitudes they bring to their work whilst raising questions about how the rest of us treat other people and the impact we have on them.
And you can currently get it FREE! (We hope that didn’t cheapen the whole discussion.)
Talking of cheap (and dirty, grubby, lacking in sophistication and even basic decency), we believe that ‘Mr Crabble’s Heroic Limericks for Reckless Boys and Girls’ should be arriving at the Amazon store next week. The estimable Mr Crabble has variously been described as ‘a literary giant’ (Mr Crabble), a ‘unique voice that touches the heart of youth’ (also Mr Crabble), ‘very pretty in a potato-ish sort of way’ (Crabble again), ‘Foul’ (an independent commentator), ‘a compelling argument for government to have greater control over the kind of puerile nonsense that gets published these days’ (someone who’s not that keen on independent creativity) and ‘soiled‘ (Mr Crabble once more, though with great pride). Rumours that this collection of poems was compiled and edited by Morgan Twining and that he left out the more unspeakable pieces (about 97% of all those originally submitted in Mr Crabble’s greasy brown suitcase) remain just that; rumours. Mr Twining, looking more fretful than usual, has declined to comment on anything relating to Mr Crabble.
And this book will also initially cost nothing! FREE! (Crabble will be furious.)
We’ll keep you updated.
