A Tiger's Heart: The Story of a Modern Chinese Woman

1754.00 руб.*

Aisling Juanjuan Shen

A Tiger's Heart: The Story of a Modern Chinese Woman

This unflinching, unapologetic Cinderella story from Chinese immigrant and businesswoman Shen will bring perspective and understanding to readers puzzling over the long history and rapid modernization of China. Born in China's Yangtze River Delta, a desperately poor area where a child's worth is determined by the speed with which he or she can plant rice, Shen found solace in schoolwork while dreaming of a better life. In 1991, days before her 17th birthday, Shen became the first person ever to leave her hamlet for college; as a college student, she was "one of God's superior children", guaranteed a job for life. What seems to be the answer to her prayers, however, is just the beginning of a long and troubling journey; ahead of her are challenges including a bleak period of homelessness, poor health, lice infestation, and eventual salvation via the Internet and an ambitious Amway representative. Shen's patient delivery and exquisite eye for detail provide a vivid look into modern...

Conrad J. Wells

A Vermont Son - 4: The Autobiography of Conrad J. Wells, 1963 - 2003

This is the last segment of the autobiography and covers from 1963 to 2003. In this time frame, I revert back to the TV sales and service on Cape Cod, then back to the Punched Card era with a different company. I sell various insurances, sell Real Estate, sell specialty welding and end up with a ‘local’ distributor of Punched Card equipment and Personal Computers, in various capacities until I retire in 1998. Again, the reader will have an interesting and fun time following my footsteps through the years.

A Visa or Your Life!: A Boy's Life and the Odyssey of His Escape From Nazi Germany

This book, an autobiography, starts with the story of a Jewish boy growing up in Nazi Germany, related from the viewpoint of a teenager. He tells us about his youthful experiences and impressions, the restrictions and degradations forced on Jews by a hostile, totalitarian regime, and the ultimate struggle to secure the permits and visas for a life-saving emigration. After his escape to Holland, he is caught there in the grips of war and survives the bombardment of Rotterdam. His adventures continue with his ongoing struggle to obtain the necessary transit visas in wartime Berlin as the Nazi's plan had escalated from hostility toward Jews to their destruction. His problems do not end when he finally reaches the United States. Eventually, however, he is reunited with his family. The author then takes the reader to New York City of the 1940s and US army life in World War II during his tour of duty in the Pacific. His trips back to Germany after the war open a door...

A Welsh Hundred: Glimpses of Life in Wales drawn from a pair of family diaries for 1841 and 1940

A Welsh Hundred: Glimpses of Life in Wales drawn from a pair of family diaries for 1841 and 1940

By combining a pair of diaries written a century apart, A Welsh Hundred reveals for the first time in English the genuine character of daily life in the Welsh-speaking heartlands of Middle and North Wales. In the hands of W. Ambrose Bebb, the published diary opened up a new avenue for Welsh-language literature; and Bebb's work was hailed at its debut as "the tour de force of a true artist.... There is nothing exactly like it to be found written in Welsh, French or English." This contemporary translation gives English readers their first glimpse into the joys and disappointments, struggles and achievements of "real life" in Wales as lovingly portrayed by one of her favorite sons.

Sheree Lipton

A Woman in the South Pacific

.A young woman's passion for life in all its beauty and complexity led Sheree Lipton to remote South Pacific archipelagos at a time before these isles and atolls were compelled to yield their ancient traditions to the inexorable forces of outside influence. The adventures she shares offer a rare glimpse into a way of life that has nearly vanished in some of these still remarkable islands. Recent events and economic and political changes in nations such as Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga have vastly impacted life and attitudes in the South Pacific making the memories related here all the more poignant. SherA©e's tales are often cautionary, and sometimes exacted a toll in matters of health and danger, but they are always filled with candor, a wry wit and, admittedly, some NaA?vetA© The characters encountered are real people and include heads of state, rogues, lovers, ex-cannibals, eccentric expatriates, and warm-hearted islanders who reached out to Sheree and welcomed her into thir homes...

A Year in the Life

It was Joe McEnroe bringing them homemade ice cream as they rebuilt a one-room schoolhouse in the heat of summer that created the After School Boys Club in Amenia, New York. After that project was complete the septa- and octo-genarians continued to meet weekly to ponder the present and reminisce about the past. When member Bill Burke bought a tattered 1915 farm journal at a yard sale, a glorious new project began. Identifying the author as Ed Dean was not difficult. Reading and discussing the journal sparked their own memories and led to long conversations about the farm work most Club members had known so well. Forays were made to explore every aspect of the vanished world captured by Dean - beekeeping, ice cutting, milking, stump-blasting, wood-cutting, apple-growing - and aspects of the community life he recorded - the Grange, baseball, blizzards, the movies, sleigh-rides, weddings, funerals. The more that Club members talked about farming and its dramatic transformation during...

Manders Smith

A Year with Misty

A true and poignant story of two "gurlz" who met and eventually fell in love. A rare thing in the transitory world of TVs where love takes a back window and everthing is fuelled by sex, parties, prostitution, alcholol, and drugs. They even run-ins with the police. It was a real roller coaster of a ride with so many emotional highs and lows, but they got there in the end. They found a love that transcended sex, and as Misty said most gurlz would give their back teeth for a relationship like that. But life is fragile and Misty's husky voice became her biggest challenge. She beat the demons of cancer and was about to be reunited with Mandy after eight long weeks, but sometimes fairy stories don't have happy endings.

A Young Palestinian's Diary, 1941-1945: The Life of Sami 'Amr (Jamal and Rania Daniel Series in Contemporary History, Politics, Culture, and Religion of the Levant)

Writing in his late teens and early twenties, Sami 'Amr gave his diary an apt subtitle: The Battle of Life, encapsulating both the political climate of Palestine in the waning years of the British Mandate as well as the contrasting joys and troubles of family life. Now translated from the Arabic, Sami's diary represents a rare artifact of turbulent change in the Middle East.Written over four years, these ruminations of a young man from Hebron brim with revelations about daily life against a backdrop of tremendous transition. Describing the public and the private, the modern and the traditional, Sami muses on relationships, his station in life, and other universal experiences while sharing numerous details about a pivotal moment in Palestine's modern history. Making these never-before-published reflections available in translation, Kimberly Katz also provides illuminating context for Sami's words, laying out biographical details of Sami, who kept his diary private for close to sixty...

A. Hepburn

Her beauty has proved timeless - should we be surprised? Equally graceful whether moving or standing still, blessed with a balletic poise, luminous dark eyes, and an exquisite profile a queen might envy, Audrey Hepburn would no doubt have become famous in her youth even if the movies hadn't found her - simply because no self-respecting camera could resist her. What sets her iconic beauty apart now, for us, more than a decade after she's quit the stage of this life, is that her physicality is oddly secondary. Her extraordinary good looks merely halo a still-living smile. Издание на английском языке.

A. P. Giannini

At six, he witnessed his father's murder. At 12, he regularly sneaked out to the waterfront at midnight. At 15, he quit school. At 30, he retired, a self-made man. Then the real work of his life began. In 1904, A. P. Giannini (1870-1949) founded Bank of Italy, the predecessor of today's Bank of America, to serve his ethnic neighborhood in San Francisco. Against a backdrop of earthquake and fire, anti-immigrant fervor, war, and the Great Depression, he broke every rule and tradition on his way to a showdown with Wall Street. This riveting story of an outsider with something to prove is an American classic.
