If Pigs Could Fly. Nothing ever stays calm in Possum Creek for long. After watching her husband make-out with another woman during her best friend's wedding, Katie has been forced to acknowledge that her own happily ever after is more like a B-rated horror movie than a fairy tale. Katie loves her daughter more than life itself, but she's pretty sure that Ian loves his Xbox more than he loves either one of them. Addison, the man Katie's been secretly in love with from the safety of the friend-zone for most of her adult life, thinks she's pathetic. At least, that's what his girlfriend told her. Katie doesn't know what her future holds, but she knows it's past time for a change. She's done wasting her life trying to please Ian while silently lusting after Addy. She's ready to move on and leave her feelings for both of them in the past. Addison Malone thinks the dust has finally settled after his sister's wedding. He couldn't be more wrong. The evidence in a rash of burglaries that have struck Possum Creek and the surrounding area make it apparent that he and his friends are being betrayed by someone they've always considered one of their own. When Katie makes it clear that she's ready to walk away from him forever, Addison is left scrambling to fix their relationship while he's still trying to get to the bottom of the crime spree.

When Pigs Could Fly And Bears Could Dance. For more than seven decades the circuses enjoyed tremendous popularity in the Soviet Union. How did the circus—an institution that dethroned figures of authority and refused any orderly narrative structure—become such a cultural mainstay in a state known for blunt and didactic messages? Miriam Neirick argues that the variety, flexibility, and indeterminacy of the modern circus accounted for its appeal not only to diverse viewers but also to the Soviet state. In a society where government-legitimating myths underwent periodic revision, the circus proved a supple medium of communication. Between 1919 and 1991, it variously displayed the triumph of the Bolshevik revolution, the beauty of the new Soviet man and woman, the vulnerability of the enemy during World War II, the prosperity of the postwar Soviet household, and the Soviet mission of international peace—all while entertaining the public with the acrobats, elephants, and clowns. With its unique ability to meet and reconcile the demands of both state and society, the Soviet circus became the unlikely darling of Soviet culture and an entertainment whose usefulness and popularity stemmed from its ambiguity.
