The author and her new husband give up high-­flying media lives in London's famous Fleet Street to make a home on an old Thames Barge lying in the mud in Essex. Life on the Varuna turns out to be a long way from 'cocktails on deck at sundown', and Caroline writes about it all with a distinctively dry and laconic wit. Even the tragic ending fails to dim her ability to 'keep on keeping on'.

Vasily Sukhomlinsky (1918-­1970) was one of the most influential Soviet educators of the post-­war period. His idealistic vision of human development and his deep love for children led him to develop a holistic system of education that emphasised the moral and aesthetic dimensions of a child's development, as well as the physical, intellectual and vocational. His school in the Ukrainian village of Pavlysh was visited by thousands of school teachers and his books were read by millions. Sukhomlinsky's ifluence has been immense in Ukraine, Russia and China. This major study presents Sukhomlinsky's work to an English-­speaking audience.

This is essential reading to anybody who has an interest in teaching or becoming a teacher. It is not a training manual or a set of guidelines, but a collection of my experiences during my teacher training. Some are funny, some are emotionally charged, some will make you argue with me and the way I handled the situation. My intention is to let you see what happened and how I stumbled my way through, warts and all. From my experience of many conversations with different professionals, there are a lot of working people who are content but unfulfilled by their working lives. Many yearn for a change but are afraid to take the leap into something new for fear of losing what they have. Golden handcuffs have them locked in the mundane for fear of losing income and future regrets of rocking the boat. I understand these fears because I had them. I took the plunge and this is a record of what happened to me in my year of re-­training from office worker to school teacher.

Vienen estos poemas de voces tomadas, recuperadas, usurpadas. Voces de supervivientes de la Shoá. Los riscos sobrellevados para arribar a este libro hacen repensar el tejido que sustrae finos hilos de la literatura y del periodismo, desde donde el género testimonial se transforma en Poesía documental, tendencia bien entendida y abordada por el modernismo norteamericano con contados ejemplos en lengua española. A Jacqueline Goldberg —una de las más reconocidas poetas venezolanas de su generación— le interesa comprender la poesía como investigación y documentación de una realidad que puede ser copiada, citada y editada hasta convertirse en una estética. Escritura sin duda imprescindible en estos días en que supuran por doquier las cicatrices del fascismo, la intolerancia, el antisemitismo, el racismo, la xenofobia y las persecuciones políticas.
