Living in the 21st century means less time, more stress; less standing more sitting; less walking more driving; less slow food, more fast food and less face time more Facebook. All this adds up to a very poor state of mind, body and health. Leading to a slew of health problems from depression, aches and pains, heart diseases and the list goes on. Finding a solution in a pill or a surgery could seem smart but not always wise. As one explores holistic / complementary approaches to issues of the mind and body and health, very naturally we are confused with what works and what doesn’t, who to believe and what to believe? This dilemma holds us back from taking our first step towards trying out holistic approaches even though they have been scientifically proven to help heal us. Today, on the show we are discussing Tai Chi, Yoga and meditation with experts who will answer a lot of our burning questions and hopefully bring clarity to this very important issue of our time.

Get ready for an hour of candid, thought-provoking book and author talk. On this episode of the Literary New England Radio Show, we feature:
Jill Alexander Essbaum on her striking debut Hausfrau. Described as a 'modern-day Anna Karenina,' it's the story of 30-something Anna, an American living with her husband in Switzerland, who tries to pull her life together and find happiness through a series of new experiences, including German language classes, Jungian analysis and a series of sexual affairs.
Sally Hepworth on The Secrets of Midwives. Neva, a third-generation midwife, is pregnant and determined to hide the baby's father's identity. Yet her mother finds it impossible to let this secret rest. For Neva's grandmother, the situation sends her back 60 years to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's--which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all.
David James Poissant on The Heaven of Animals. Nominated for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction, named one of Amazon’s Best Short Story Collections of 2014 and recipient of numerous other awards and recognitions, this debut short story collection explores the tenuous bonds of devotion and family as each of Poissant's strikingly true-to-life characters are in some way tested by the often-brutal power of love.
We'll also help you get your read on for next week's Boston Marathon! We talk with Rachel Cass, head buyer at the Harvard Book Store, about unforgettable running books--fiction, non-fiction and those ideal for children.
