Beloved teen star, talk-show host, and media personality Ricki Lake reads her uplifting and revelatory memoir about turning forty, losing weight, and reinventing oneself at any age.Audiences first met Ricki Lake as Tracy Turnblad in the original Hairspray. They fell in love with her as the spunky, no-holds-barred host of The Ricki Lake Show. And they came to respect her as the executive producer behind The Business of Being Born, a groundbreaking documentary on childbirth in the United States. Now, Ricki’s many fans will get to know her in a whole new way.     In this intimate, bold, and relatable memoir, Ricki takes listeners into her childhood home in Westchester County, where her parents—once liberal Jews—became born-again Christians. She’ll reveal the sexual abuse she endured, and the subsequent food issues and weight problems spawned from that trauma. She’ll pull back the curtain on her life as a celebrity, from Hairspray through her decade-long talk show to the reinvention of herself as an author and filmmaker on the subject of alternative childbirth. Along the way, Ricki has weathered near bankruptcy, a brutal divorce, and a string of broken romances, while also giving birth to two sons and raising them as a single mother—circumstances that would knock some of the strongest off their feet. But not this fighter.     Never Say Never gives listeners an empowering example of the way one woman learned to take responsibility for her emotions, trust her gut, and turn an unconventional life into an unparalleled triumph.

Ireland today stands at a defining moment. The prosperity of the Celtic Tiger years has given way to the sudden crash, the turbulence of the euro crisis, and the loss of our sovereignty to the faceless technocrats of Europe and the IMF. Ireland's leaders seem impotent and rage, bewilderment, and despair have swept through Irish society.Was It For This? sweeps through the pages of Ireland's recent history to get to the heart of its political, social, and existential identity crisis. Ranging across a vast canvas, Was It For This? argues that the Celtic Tiger was built on a collective delusion, and that the seeds of its destruction were sown many years before it even began. Along the way, Waters ponders Ireland's love/hate relationship with Fianna Fáil; the undercurrents that ran through the 2011 presidential election; why their political leaders and commentators have clung onto the remnants of 1960s revolutionary fervor long after the revolution was won; how their denial of an authoritative father figure has led to a leaderless 'sibling society'; the emptiness of their 'youth culture' and the suppression of real thought and discussion through cynicism and irony; and why Ireland has lost the very language that once enabled them to speak of 'Ireland' with pride.
