With the hand : a cultural history of masturbation by Mels van Driel( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most women do it at home; men, it seems, do it everywhere. Some consider it a health treatment, others as love for themselves. Yet despite everyone doing it, no one actually talks about it: masturbation is still taboo, and even today the subject is not discussed at dinner parties or soirées. To help the world overcome its diffidence towards solo sex Mels van Driel has written With the Hand. Consulting theologians, historians, classicists, doctors, sexologists, connoisseurs, artists, philosophers, writers, poets, musicians, feminists and chauvinists, Van Driel answers questions about what masturbation actually is, and describes the latest discoveries and developments in the field. Covering a great number of topics, from the physical, to the mythical, to the mythological, to the artistic, this book explores masturbation in all its astonishing variety. From statistics of age, location and frequency, to the effects of circumcision, to multiple orgasms, he also explores masturbation in art, literature, poetry, song, religion and philosophy. Frequently astounding, often humorous and always informative, With the Hand refutes the many myths and confusion surrounding this universal, yet unmentionable pursuit. Making an unusual gift, this is perhaps the ultimate bedtime book."--Publisher's website

Arriving in Avignon : a record by Daniël Robberechts( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young man away from home populates an ancient city with his dreams and desires. "Arriving in Avignon" records a young man's first encounter with that labyrinth city, and his likewise meandering relationship with a girl from his home town - and indeed virtually every woman he meets. Hesitant and cautious, unable quite to enter nor turn away, the young man seems to circle Avignon endlessly, in the process attempting to delay his inevitable descent into maturity and monogamy. What seems at first like a cross between a memoir and a guidebook comes in time to be the story of a young man's dogged yet futile quest to know his own mind - unless it's the ancient city of Avignon itself that is our real protagonist: a mystery that can be approached, but never wholly solved

The roar of morning = De morgen loeit weer aan by Tip Marugg( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel has been widely praised as an intensely personal, often dreamlike literary masterpiece that balances Caribbean mysticism with the magical realism of Latin American fiction while reflecting the Calvinist sensibilities of the region's Dutch colonial past. The story begins on a tropical Antilles night. A man drinks and awaits the coming dawn with his dogs, thinking he might well commit suicide in the roar of morning. While contemplating his possible end, the events of his life on Curacao and on mainland Venezuela come rushing back to him. Some memories are recent, others distant; all are tormented by the politics of a colonialist gone native. He recalls sickness and sexual awakening as well as personal encounters with the extraordinary and unexplained. As the day breaks, he has an apocalyptic vision of a great fire engulfing the entire South American continent. The countdown to Armageddon has begun

This book provides a welcome English translation of a marvelous anthology of women's religious and secular writing, stretching from the visions of the late medieval mystics through the prison testaments of sixteenth-century Anabaptist martyrs to the pamphleteers and novelists of the growing urban bourgeoisie.

Gestameld liedboek : moedergetijden by Erwin Mortier( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heartbreaking chronicle of an illness, written by a son graced with enormous literary talent. 'My mother, a house that is slowly collapsing, a bridge dancing to a tremor.' It started when she could no longer remember the word for 'book'. Then her mind, her language and her identity began to slip away. This is Erwin Mortier's moving, exquisitely observed memoir of his mother's descent into dementia, as a once-flamboyant woman who loved life and pleasure becomes a shuffling, ghostlike figure wandering through the house. Piecing together the fragments of her lost life, and his own childhoo
