Book Excerpt :

"An overlooked masterpiece. It may still be undervalued as Malamud's funniest and most embracing novel." --Jonathan Lethem In A New Life, Bernard Malamud--generally thought of as a distinctly New York writer--took on the American myth of the West as a place of personal reinvention. When Sy Levin, a high school teacher beset by alcohol and bad decisions, leaves the city for the Pacific Northwest to start over, it's no surprise that he conjures a vision of the extraordinary new life awaiting him there: "He imagined the pioneers in covered wagons entering this valley for the first time. Although he had lived little in nature Levin had always loved it, and the sense of having done the right thing in leaving New York was renewed in him." Soon after his arrival at Cascadia College, however, Levin realizes he has been taken in by a mirage. The failures pile up anew, and Levin, fired from his post, finds himself back where he started and little the wiser for it. A New Life--as Jonathan Lethem's introduction makes clear--is Malamud at his best: with his belief in luck and new beginnings Sy Levin embodies the thwarted yearning for transcendence that is at the heart of all Malamud's work.

Book Short Summary:

I walk by faith. When life comes at you with fear and you don't know which way to turn, remember to pray without ceasing! I began to believe that my prayers did make a difference as my life was headed down a different path with many challenges to face throughout my journey. Walking by faith leads me to a place I do not know. For his perfect love covers me to know he's there with me to carry me, protect, strengthen, and bless me. His plans for me or dreams, if I may say, will come alive as he reveals them through me to bring glory to his name only! As he prepares my way to touch a world that is hurting and desperately in need to see Jesus, I will follow him. Trusting him through my faith teaches me his love for me is unconditional and he is my everlasting hope!

Book Short Summary:

A SYNOPSIS. (This is a poetry book that is societal based. In that it’s centered in the community and reveals the vices that we should turn from in order to excel. It also advices us on the things we should come in good terms or compromise with in order to succeed. It encourages us not to abolish our norms, customs, morals, traditions and values which over the years have yielded positive results. While at the same time discouraging us from holding onto those which have resulted to nothing but discouragement, separation, hatred and even lack of developments and self motivation in our lifes as societal members hence abolishing negativity. It’s like a saw balance in that it helps us weigh between this and that and leave us in a better position to either choose this and forego that based on its merit. If we choose to forego that based on its demerit then we can say we are turning a new life hence the book title turn a new life).

Book Short Summary:

A REVELATORY LOOK AT THE INTIMATE LIFE OF THE GREAT AUTHOR—AND HOW IT SHAPED HIS MOST BE LOVED WORKS With the posthumous publication of his long-suppressed novel Maurice in 1970, E. M. Forster came out as a homosexual— though that revelation made barely a ripple in his literary reputation. As Wendy Moffat persuasively argues in A Great Unrecorded History, Forster's homosexuality was the central fact of his life. Between Wilde's imprisonment and the Stonewall riots, Forster led a long, strange, and imaginative life as a gay man. He preserved a vast archive of his private life—a history of gay experience he believed would find its audience in a happier time. A Great Unrecorded History is a biography of the heart. Moffat's decade of detective work—including first-time interviews with Forster's friends—has resulted in the first book to integrate Forster's public and private lives. Seeing his life through the lens of his sexuality offers us a radically new view—revealing his astuteness as a social critic, his political bravery, and his prophetic vision of gay intimacy. A Great Unrecorded History invites us to see Forster— and modern gay history—from a completely new angle.

Book Short Summary:

To many, the life of Ernest Hemingway has taken on mythic proportions. From his romantic entanglements to his legendary bravado, the elements of Papa’s persona have fascinated readers, turning Hemingway into such an outsized figure that it is almost impossible to imagine him as a real person. James Hutchisson’s biography reclaims Hemingway from the sensationalism, revealing the life of a man who was often bookish and introverted, an outdoor enthusiast who revered the natural world, and a generous spirit with an enviable work ethic. This is an examination of the writer through a new lens—one that more accurately captures Hemingway’s virtues as well as his flaws. Hutchisson situates Hemingway’s life and art in the defining contexts of the women he loved and lost, the places he held dear, and the specter of mental illness that haunted his family. This balanced portrait examines for the first time in full detail the legendary writer’s complex medical history and his struggle against clinical depression. The first major biography of Hemingway in over twenty years, this monumental achievement provides readers with a fresh, comprehensive look at one of the most acclaimed authors of the twentieth century.

Book Short Summary:

An American writer and his wife find a new home—and a new lease on life—in the charming sixteenth-century hill town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. When Los Angeles novelist Tony Cohan and his artist wife, Masako, visited central Mexico one winter they fell under the spell of a place where the pace of life is leisurely, the cobblestone streets and sun-splashed plazas are enchanting, and the sights and sounds of daily fiestas fill the air. Awakened to needs they didn’t know they had, they returned to California, sold their house and cast off for a new life in San Miguel de Allende. On Mexican Time is Cohan's evocatively written memoir of how he and his wife absorb the town's sensual ambiance, eventually find and refurbish a crumbling 250-year-old house, and become entwined in the endless drama of Mexican life. Brimming with mystery, joy, and hilarity, On Mexican Time is a stirring, seductive celebration of another way of life—a tale of Americans who, finding a home in Mexico, find themselves anew.

Book Short Summary:

“Andersen provides a fascinating backdrop for the life of the acclaimed fairy tale writer . . . a budding genius placed in the context of his time.” —Publishers Weekly Hans Christian Andersen was a storyteller for children of all ages, but he was more than that. He was a critical journalist with great enthusiasm for science, an existential thinker, an observant travel book writer, a passionate novelist, a deft paper cut-out artist, a neurotic hypochondriac, and a man with intense but frustrated sexual desires. This startling and immensely readable, definitive biography by Danish scholar Jens Andersen is essential to a full understanding of the man whose writing has influenced the lives of readers young and old for centuries. Jens Andersen sheds brilliant new light on Hans Christian Andersen’s writings and on the writer whose own life had many aspects of the fairytale. Like some of the memorable characters he created, Andersen grew up in miserable and impoverished circumstances. He later propagated myths about his life and family, but this new biography uncovers much about this man that has never been revealed before. “[An] enthralling, ground-breaking new biography . . . Jens Andersen has a novelist’s insights which enhance his meticulous biographical skills, making us appreciate (among much else) that ambiguity is as intrinsic to the life as to the art that came out of it.” —The Independent

Book Short Summary:

When Lucinda is molested by her uncle, a charismatic small-town pastor in the Oklahoma Bible Belt, her parents react to her accusation with abuse, not support. One town over, sixteen-year-old Mary emerges from a coma to cruel gossip and unorthodox desires. Further north in Alberta, Canada, a trio of Mormon boys unfairly judge nine-year-old Damien due to his parents’ divorce; they nearly stone him to death in a self-righteous kangaroo court. Lucinda’s cunning uncle, Pastor Bill, is connected to all three youths as he navigates his own relationship with religion, power, and morality. Lucinda, Mary, and Damien don’t know each other, but they have something in common: their trauma has allowed them to see and touch the Doors of the Veil, triggering supernatural insight and abilities. But even with their newfound powers, these young people are up against potent societal forces and a relentless religious agency seeking to silence them at all costs. In a world where patriarchy and the church’s authority are embedded in every aspect of life, will Lucinda, Mary, and Damien emerge triumphant . . . or fall victim to religious zealots? The first in the Doors of the Veil series, A New Life takes aim at the hypocrisy of society and its religious institutions. Journey through a world of lies, deception, and betrayal as three young people struggle to shed the victim role and cast off societies expectations and judgment.

Book Short Summary:

In 1955, Otto Schmalz had been a single German immigrant in Canada for four years. It was time for him to go back to Europe and find a wife. In this, Schmalz’s fourth book of memoir, he takes us on an adventure that takes us from his return to Canada with his German fiancée through their early years together, which were abundantly propelled by an appetite for taking chances. Otto took on jobs away from home to earn more money, leaving his new-to-Canada bride to figure the country out on her own (she did). He postponed an urgent operation so he could finish his first year at university—at age thirty-three (he did). They went with nearly no income for five years, while Otto took engineering courses in the hope of becoming an engineer (he did). Otto and Gertrud’s bold approach to their lives, which featured no little sacrifice and financial hardship, has proved a spectacular success. Taking Chances Paid off, and the rollicking tales it unspools, is proof of that.

Book Short Summary:

This is about how Andrew Hicks met Cat, a ‘Thai girl’ half his age and how they set up home together in her village out in the rice fields of North Eastern Thailand. He'll tell you of toads in the toilet, of ants' eggs for breakfast, how they took up frog farming and how he got married without really meaning to. It's also a book about the countryside, of the old Thailand where the rhythm of the seasons and belief in the spirits and Buddhism remain strong. Though how could Andrew, a greying English lawyer, ever fit into the lives of a Thai rice farming family? Can Cat and Andrew with their many differences really be compatible?

Book Short Summary:

What will it take for us to stop living dreary lives? What will it take for us to fill the deep ache and longing we all have for that elusive "something more"? In a courageous departure from the traditional twelve step views of spirituality, this book takes our hungry souls on a life-changing journey to the kingdom within, laying out a path of startling new concepts to reconnect us with our own divinity. For years, Lynn Grabhorn was a passionate student of thought and our divine relation to Self. Raised in Short Hills, New Jersey, she moved to California in 1963, the same year she joined A.A. She passed away in 2004. In her own words: "Our inner beings are crying out for us to remember who and what we really are, because the call is out-big time-for us to wake up. All it takes is a deep desire, and anyone can make this journey with ease."

Book Short Summary:

Philip II is not only the most famous king in Spanish history, but one of the most famous monarchs in English history: the man who married Mary Tudor and later launched the Spanish Armada against her sister Elizabeth I. This compelling biography of the most powerful European monarch of his day begins with his conception (1526) and ends with his ascent to Paradise (1603), two occurrences surprisingly well documented by contemporaries. Eminent historian Geoffrey Parker draws on four decades of research on Philip as well as a recent, extraordinary archival discovery—a trove of 3,000 documents in the vaults of the Hispanic Society of America in New York City, unread since crossing Philip’s own desk more than four centuries ago. Many of them change significantly what we know about the king. The book examines Philip’s long apprenticeship; his three principal interests (work, play, and religion); and the major political, military, and personal challenges he faced during his long reign. Parker offers fresh insights into the causes of Philip’s leadership failures: was his empire simply too big to manage, or would a monarch with different talents and temperament have fared better?

Book Short Summary:

The purpose of this book is to help Christians to revive their lives by allowing the Spirit of God to identify their hidden gifts and bring out inner goodness. It will be of most use to you if you take one study at a time, read the Bible passages several times, pray for God’s guidance in understanding the meaning, and then think of how it applies to you. May God bless you as you read the studies and live by them and be renewed with a new life of hope in Christ. “Out of sorrow and disappointment, there often comes a new insight. This was the experience of Pastor Alysious Kamara who, after an upsetting incident in his own church, found it necessary to reconsider his own feelings and reactions toward those involved. Consequently, he has put together this helpful little book which represents his refreshing insight that there is a basic need to provide encouragement and instruction in Christian behavior for members of a church. Pastor Alysious uses many of Paul’s writings to clearly point out the need for those committed to following Christ to endeavor, under the guidance and help of the Holy Spirit, to lead a new life of service, love, purity and care for others. This comes under headings such as ‘New Life and Hope,’ ‘Imitation of Christ,’ ‘Strive to be Good,’ ‘Be Transformed,’ and ‘Living the Good Life in the Real World.’ The book will have a wide interest, and I strongly recommend it.”—Jean McLean

Captured by invading Roman Soldiers, 10-year-old Anthia is taken away from her island home in Greece and sold as a slave in Rome, which, at the time, was considered the “center of the world.” Living in a culture her family has regarded as inferior to their own, Anthia struggles to use the Greek values learned at home to shape a meaningful life in busy first-century Rome. In this historical tale, readers are given a window into the life and customs of civilized Greece and pre-Imperial Rome.
