Book DescriptionAs the Air France 737 landed on the worn runway of the Tan Sun Nhut airport in a western suburb of Saigon and approached the rundown terminal building, I knew we were not going to be welcomed with open arms. As we passed through the arrival room, the customs officers were not disagreeable. I did wonder how they could sit in the heat and humidity in the large dingy room with one antique ceiling fan whining above them, pushing down the hot air. There were no smiles but no delays either. ?A plucky, gutsy memoir of a doctor?s life well-lived, helping refugees set adrift by war and disaster. Holbrook?s humility, gentle humour and unflagging kindness, along with his insatiable delight in people and their worlds, carries him through the toughest times and illuminates every page of this amazing story.? ?Sarah Sheard, author of The Hypnotist ?Whether he is describing the misery of an Indonesian refugee camp or a peculiar...

Paul Quarrington

The Boy on the Back of the Turtle: Seeking God, Quince Marmalade, and the Fabled Albatross on Darwin's Islands

Book DescriptionIn The Boy on the Back of the Turtle, Quarrington attempts to discover his own little niche in the cosmos. Cruising the volcanic Galapagos Islands on a 90-foot liner in the company of his daughter, age 7, and his father, age 73, he tries to find his place as a Son, as a Father, as a Mortal frolicking beneath the heavens. Given that the Galapagos is the historic site of God?s greatest setback, he points out, it is a fitting place to play out the battle within him. Quarrington employs his trademark combination of wry wit and poignant observation as he takes readers on a wide-ranging investigation of everything from blue-footed boobies, careerism, taxonomy, and the nature of creation to pirates, frigate birds, Herman Melville, and the precarious ecology of the islands and the planet. The exploration of questions big and small make this an enlightening voyage for the reader as well.
Expecting to Fly : A Sixties Reckoning

Martha Tod Dudman

Expecting to Fly : A Sixties Reckoning

Amazon.comThe tumult of the '60s provides a dramatic backdrop for Martha Tod Dudman's candid memoir of her misspent youth. For Dudman, the gathering of her experiences as a rebellious, insolent, and aimless teen and young woman must have been a particularly wrenching process--her earlier memoir, Augusta, Gone , chronicled the trials she faced dealing with her daughter's troubled adolescence. In Expecting to Fly , Dudman switches roles and turns back the clock to a time when she experimented with drugs, casual (albeit emotionally taxing) sex, and counterculture lifestyles (she finds herself grimly clearing land and planting onions at a communal farm in West Virginia). Shifting from past to present tense, judiciously inserting brief steam-of-consciousness flashbacks, and sticking to clipped, unfussy prose, Dudman creates a terse but vivid portrait of a confused girl who's world is a swirl of idealism and apathy, independence and neediness, fearlessness and fear. --Steven...

Carrie Levy: 51 Months

Book DescriptionOn Carrie Levy's 16th birthday, her father was sentenced to four years in prison. Levy soon grasped the consequences: people's sidelong glances, and the whispers and stares at her school, which she left early in order to escape her own prison. Then she picked up her camera and started to photograph the empty spaces in her home, on the road, her garden, and outside the prison. The touching images in 51 Months are redolent of loss, of vacant lanscapes that for Levy were filled with painful meaning. Levy's singular story ended when her father came home, four years later, and she tucked her container of 500 photographs under her bed where they remained a hidden visual narrative--until now. Hardcover, 11.5 x 8.25 in./160 pgs / 60 color.

Transparent

There was nothing extraordinary about that spring day that Jewel headed to meet with her therapist Landra. After all she had been meeting with Landra for quite some time. However, to Jewel's surprise, Landra sets the stage for Jewel to confront the very things that have kept her from experiencing the life that God intended for her to have. Jewel's story emerges from a mosiac of events over the course of her life. This girl/woman, forced to face extraordinary circumstances, scratches and feels her way through a long inner capitivity of guilt, shame and regret. This autobiographical novel is a testament of the human spirit to overcome when it surrenders to God and wise counsel.

Fool in Love : One Man's Search for Romance . . . or Something Like It

Book Description The delirious pursuit of love is a search that inevitably takes us all both down the well-beaten path and into new, uncharted territory. In this collection of thirty-three heart-tugging and hilarious essays, celebrated Electronic Urban Report columnist Steven Ivory chronicles his lifelong quest for that thing we all crave: The Meaningful Relationship. The journey begins with his first love -- his mother -- before making an amusing pilgrimage through lust-filled adolescent affections, an awkward introduction to sex, and a series of poignant and funny adventures of unrequited love, bungled blind dates, and the Ones That Got Away. Propelled by a wit rivaled only by a willingness to bare his soul, Ivory's revelations on kissing, game-playing, sexual satisfaction, and personal insecurities culminate in a startling, life-altering discovery that touches your funny bone as well as your heart.
