Ace Deuce

The theme of this book is a Tour de Noir of a gamblers life. Written in the third person, it describes the successes and eventual downfall of a young hustler. The book extensively describes gambling situations, cheating moves, scams against casinos and casino methods of cheating players. Heretofore unpublished, and possibly unknown even to law enforcement, are the conspiracies and actions of notorious Nevada cheating crews. Gambling on golf, backgammon, gin rummy and poker, and methods employed to take advantage of opponents, are extensively discussed. The early chapters are moments in present time followed by reflection of the protagonist on his past and maturation, development of an exculpatory personal philosophy, love interest (explicit sex) and sexual encounters. His interactions with the Mafia, famous gamblers like “Titanic” Thompson, and present day high-rollers are authentic. Throughout his adventures the humor and irony in life situations are captures.

Regulatory and ethical framework and current issues 2. Reporting the financial performance of entities 3. Group financial statements 4. Specialised entities 5.

Accounting standards come next, combining revision with extension into more advanced areas. After a brief revision of basic groups, the more advanced consolidation topics are covered. Current issues are covered throughout the text within the appropriate topics, and also summarised in a final chapter. The question bank contains practice at the case study-style question you will encounter in the real exam.BPP Learning Media is the publisher of choice for many ACCA students and tuition providers worldwide.

Bootlegger Of The Soul

Bootlegger Of The Soul

A celebration of the Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist who put Albany on the world’s literary map. Award-winning novelist William Kennedy is perhaps best known for his Albany Cycle, a series of novels that put Albany on the world’s literary map alongside James Joyce’s Dublin, Gabriel García Márquez’s Macondo, and William Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County. Bootlegger of the Soul offers a fresh and authoritative overview of Kennedy’s long literary career and his astonishing trajectory from journalist to struggling novelist to Pulitzer Prize winner. Included here are reviews, interviews, and scholarly essays on Kennedy’s work, as well as essays, speeches, a play, and a short story by the author himself, together with more than fifty historical and personal photographs. Lively, readable, and brimming with the infectious wit and lyrical prose that animates Kennedy’s novels, Bootlegger of the Soul is a celebration of a writer still working hard at his craft at age ninety. “There are no dead sentences in [Kennedy’s] work. His language is vigorous, full of energy He’s just a pure writer.” — Saul Bellow “William Kennedy’s cycle of Albany novels may be one of the most exuberant literary feats of the past half-century.” — Colum McCann “Kennedy’s art is an eccentric triumph, a quirky, risk-taking imagination at play upon the solid paving stones, the breweries, the politicos, and pool sharks of an all-too-actual city.” — Thomas Flanagan
