Launch party for the new GRANTA!

|

Join fellow readers, subscribers and Granta authors on 13th January for a glass of wine and a panel discussion on WORK, the theme of our upcoming issue. Contributors Peter Stothard, Aminatta Forna and Nicola Monaghan will be in conversation with Madeleine Bunting, Guardian columnist and author of Willing Slaves - How the Overwork Culture is Ruling Our Lives.

Where? The Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London EC1R 3GA

When? 6.30 pm, Wednesday 13th January 2010

How? By booking, but not paying. Call 020 7 324 2570 or email info@freewordonline.com to book a place; visit the Free Word Centre website for more information. (It is essential to book for this event.)

Why? To shmooze with some of our authors; to drink with the like-minded. To contemplate the thing that makes us what we are, but that we so often try to distance ourselves from. To be part of the Granta community. To brighten up that darkest of months, as Christmas falls away behind us...

    La lumière des matins.

    La voix des
    matins appelle
    le sourire des
    douces émotions,
    comme un rêve
    perpétuel, comme
    le chant de la
    vie qui décrit
    tendrement
    l'adorable
    jeunesse......

    My spouse and i ended up being absolutely glad Peter could do his studies using the precious recommendations he acquired from your site. It's not at all simplistic to just choose to be giving for free tips which usually a number of people may have been making money from. Therefore we figure out we now have the blog owner to thank for that. All the explanations you have made, the simple web site menu, the friendships your site help create - it's all great, and it is helping our son and our family understand that issue is thrilling, which is pretty fundamental. Many thanks for the whole thing! http://jordanpetraprivatetour.com

    Manhood Size Matters: Well-Endowed Men Almost certainly going to Be Cheated On By Girl, Says Study
    Men with teeny weenies, rejoice! Your well-endowed rivals are more inclined to be cheated on by their particular wives, according to a new study.
    https://www.facebook.com/MaleExtraEnlargementPillsSupplement
    penis enlargement pills

    This may come to some sort of surprise to of the Size Matters way of thinking, but according to a recent Kenyan study this indicates bigger isn't necessarily better.

    Case study interviewed 545 married couples in Kenya to decode relationships and explore why women indulge in extramarital affairs.
    https://www.facebook.com/MaleExtraMaleEnhancementPillsSupplement
    male enhancement pills

    Couples were asked to measure the capacity of the man's erect penis - if their answers were various, researchers took the average in the two measurements - and the outcomes showed that the longer the penis, the more likely at least 18 was to stray from the woman marriage.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-KID-1Sk9k
    male enlargement pills
    Case study revealed 6. 2% of the 545 females had affairs throughout the six-month study.

    *How Much Does Brestrogen Breast Enhancement Cream Cost?*

    Well, when you compare the price of Brestrogen to the alternatives... It's a downright bargain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXs0l4PkZDQ
    Surgery runs into $1000's, special bra's can be 3 or 4 times the cost of standard ones and even exercises have a high 'time and effort' cost.

    Remember that Brestrogen takes 5 minutes per day to see the benefits in the mirror. You just apply it to your breasts and that's it, you're done.
    PLEASE NOTE: We only use the best quality ingredients available, but because they are natural, along with the increased demand, we can't guarantee availability.
    https://www.facebook.com/BrestrogenNaturalBreastEnhancementCream
    The price of Brestrogen is based on current supplies and can change with each batch we produce.
