Good evening. Do you like bears called Padlock? Course you do. Do you like hot-air balloons? Course you do. Do you like tall sailing ships with mad sea captains, and horrifying old villains, and words like "wab!," "tungler," and "kelp?" COURSE you do! Well, guess what, THE TRUTH IS A LEMON MERINGUE.

'One of the truest and most beautiful things I've read.’ Tim Flannery I used to bottle-feed my father’s two bears. When my son was born, they were kept together. There were plenty of times when I got it wrong—the baby drank from the bear’s bottle, and the bear from his. So when they fired me from the collective farm, I knew one thing: if I wanted to go on living, I had to find a bear. A brilliant, funny and heartbreaking account of people in formerly Communist countries who are nostalgic for how they used to live. For hundreds of years, Bulgarian Gypsies trained bears to dance, welcoming them into their families and taking them on the road to perform. In the early 2000s, after the fall of Communism, they were forced to release the bears into a wildlife refuge. But, even today, whenever the bears see a human, they still get up on their hind legs to dance. In the tradition of Ryszard Kapuściński, award-winning Polish journalist Witold Szablowski tells remarkable stories of people throughout Eastern Europe and in Cuba who, like Bulgaria’s dancing bears, are now free but long for when they were not. He describes hitchhiking through Kosovo as it declares independence, arguing with the guides at the Stalin Museum, and sleeping in London’s Victoria Station alongside a homeless Polish woman. Dancing Bears is a fascinating portrait of social and economic upheaval, and a lesson in the challenges of freedom and the seductions of authoritarian rule. Witold Szablowski is an award-winning Polish journalist. His 2013 book about Turkey, The Assassin from Apricot City, won the Beata Pawlak Award and an English PEN award, and was nominated for the Nike Award, Poland’s most prestigious book prize. Antonia Lloyd-Jones is a leading translator from Polish, and has twice won the Found in Translation Award. She is a mentor for the UK’s Emerging Translators’ Mentorship Programme, and a former co-chair of the Translators Association. ‘Heartrending...A sharply drawn account of people in “newly free societies” who long for life to be the same as it was in the unfree past...Connected by the allegory of performing bears, Szabłowski’s melancholy personality studies underscore freedom’s challenges and the seductions of authoritarian rule.’ Publishers Weekly ‘Elegantly pulling together the varied threads, Szabłowski combines personal histories, letting his interviewee do the talking, with a unique storytelling device. As a result, Dancing Bears is both a compelling social history and a stunning example of literary journalism.’ AU Review ‘Polish journalist Witold Szabłowski uncovers life after communism with a curious, humorous and, at times, tender account of regular folk struggling to come to terms with the new world.’ Adelaide Review ‘Witold Szabłowski is a born storyteller. His reports from the post-Communist world read like fairy-tales with the stench of reality. Absurd, darkly funny, compassionate, his book is a literary jewel.’Ian Buruma ‘Mixing bold journalism with bolder allegories, Mr Szablowski teaches us with witty persistence that we must desire freedom rather than simply expect it.’Timothy Snyder ‘Utterly original...Provokes a far-reaching and unresolved conversation about what freedom might really mean.’ New York Times Book Review ‘Fascinating.’ Otago Daily Times ‘A compelling and nuanced portrait of the push between the freedoms of modernity and nostalgia for the old communist system...[Szablowski ] displays the qualities of a top-notch reporter: an eye for telling detail and – inherent sympathy for his subject.’ Australian ‘Riveting.’ Overland

From the early sixties to the late seventies, defensive end Ron McDole experienced football’s golden age from inside his old‐school, two‐bar helmet. During an eighteen‐year pro career, McDole—nicknamed “The Dancing Bear”—played in over 250 games, including two AFL Championships with the Buffalo Bills and one NFL Championship with the Washington Redskins. A cagey and deceptively agile athlete, McDole wreaked havoc on football’s best offenses as part of a Bills defensive line that held opponents without a rushing touchdown for seventeen straight games. His twelve interceptions remain a pro record for defensive ends. Traded by the Bills in 1970, he was given new life in Washington as one of the most famous members of George Allen’s game‐smart veterans known as “The Over‐the‐Hill Gang.” Through it all, McDole was known and loved by teammates and foes alike for his knowledge and skill on the field and his ability to have fun off it. In The Dancing Bear McDole the storyteller traces his life from his humble beginnings in Toledo, Ohio, to his four years at the University of Nebraska, his marriage to high school sweetheart Paula, and his long, accomplished professional career. He recounts the days when a pro football player needed an off‐season job to pay the bills and teams had to drive around in buses to find a city park in which to practice. The old AFL and NFL blitz back to life through McDole’s straightforward stories of time when the game was played more for love and glory than for money.

In the woods, on top of a mountain, in a far-off country there once lived a family of nice bears. The author calls them nice bears, for they were. Of course they had long claws, and sharp teeth, but they never bit anyone, or scratched anyone, because there was no-one living in that part of the woods who bothered them, or shot at them or teased them. The bears lived quietly by themselves in a den amongst the rocks. It was a nice, cosy, warm place. In this den lived five bears. There was Mr. Bear, the papa, and Mrs. Bear, the mother, and there were three little bear cubs. One little bear was named Gruffo, because he had such a deep, gruff voice, though it was not at all cross. And another bear was named Muffo, because he had such big, soft furry paws that when he folded them together it looked just as if he were carrying a muff. And there was the smallest of the three, called Dido. Now, in this book, the author is going to tell twelve of the adventures Dido had. They are: I Dido Cuts Up II Dido Is Caught III Dido Is Trained IV Dido Learns To Dance V Dido Crosses The Ocean VI Dido In The Country VII Dido Meets Don VIII Dido Helps A Girl IX Dido In The Bakery X Dido Scares A Man XI Dido In The Circus XII Dido In A Fire In all nursery literature animals have played a conspicuous part; and the reason is obvious, for nothing entertains a child more than the antics of an animal. These stories abound in amusing incidents such as children adore and the characters are so full of life, so appealing to a child's imagination, that none will be satisfied until they have met all of their favorites- Squinty, Slicko, Mappo, and the rest. 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities.

"The Man behind the Dancing Bear" is a historical essay about the life of her great-grandfather who came to America with his own Dancing Bear. We will discover more than 90 showmen performing with their dancing bears on the roads of yesteryear. They are introduced through documents attesting their arrival and their wanderings are related in the form of brief biographies, notes and anecdotes based on important personal documentation like of-ship manifests, circus data, newspapers, census, church and military records-excerpts from these records illustrate the book. What surprises us in the history of these showmen is that everything happened in a short time frame at the turn of the 20th century. Even more surprisingly, these circus men all came from three small neighboring villages in the French Pyrenees.
