Old and Poor in 1970's New Orleans: In Memory of Charles and Eva by Cab McLarty Price verified 13 hours ago

Charles and Eva, 79 and 92, respectively, are not too old to love, live together, laugh, and pull antics that are the entertainment for a tightknit neighborhood of unusual characters in 1970's New Orleans. Supported and protected by those living around, they are as happy and secure as the very old and poor without kin can be. That was the case, at least, before the hurricane struck, its waves surging through the streets with incredible force, inundating stable neighborhoods, and providing the ultimate challenge to those in the city like Charles and Eva. Hurricanes, like Katrina and Camille, are natural disasters to endure, to clean up from afterwards, and from which to move on. There is no one to blame. But the one that overwhelmed Charles and Eva was different, although no less devastating. It was unleashed by humans, spurred on by avarice, and justified in the name of the public good. This bittersweet romance, an account of an old couple and their neighborhood, is based on a true ...

The year 1967 finds Lawrence alone in Rio, having quarrelled both with Jonathon, his New York friend in Brazil on a linguistics grant, and the wealthy Brazilian who, thanks again to Olimpio, has let him stay at his flat on Copacabana Beach. Having in the meantime befriended a fisherman's family, in their shack on a hillside in Ipanema, Lawrence agrees to teach English to young Joaninha in exchange for room and board, living in a cobbler's shop shared "with the cobbler by day and the rats by night". But his unglazed window gloriously overlooks the entrance to the bay, of which Lawrence makes several drawings with his pen (shown among the illustrations). As the sole truly white man in the favela and having already learned some samba steps, Lawrence is recruited to take part in the carnival parade, disguised as a legendary Portuguese plantation owner who marries his beautiful mulatta slave.

After getting off to a false start in Provence, Lawrence finds a goodly measure of success in Paris. While his mother lives in a tiny attic "among the pigeons" on the Left Bank, Lawrence stays in a nearby hotel, where he befriends the two night porters who are political refugees from Chile and Brazil, and eats in the "fixed price" bistros of the Latin Quarter. His old friends, Yves the novelist and Emil the "black" American photographer reappear, and although both have fallen on hard times, each has touching tales to tell of what they've done in the intervening decades... Meanwhile, back in Provence, Lawrence's ambiguous relationship with Séraphine, the silk screen artist who took him in when he was almost "down and out", forces him to see the much older and even more ambiguous relationship with his mother in a glaring new light. In Paris, Lawrence befriends Monique, a "self-made woman" through whose gift shop on the Rue Mouffetard he sells his postcards and, also. the T-shirts which ...

Autobiography of an English Baby Boomer by Mike Newton Price verified 5 hours ago

When I investigated my family tree and went back to about 1805, I realised that all you could learn about my ascendants was how they were related, where they were born and their occupation every 10 years. It would have been much more interesting if some of them had written about their life. I was prompted to write my autobiography and have completed it until the age of 65 - hopefully there will be more to add. The aim of it is to pass down information about myself to my future descendants and is aimed at my grandchildren, great grandchildren etc, and I kept in my mind it being read in 100 years time. I asked my two sons if they would be interested in reading my autobiography and they answered in the affirmative. However after sending them my version up to the age of 63 two years ago, my sons informed me that they were still interested but had not yet opened the cover, but one remarked that it would be easier to read if I uploaded my autobiography as a book to Amazon Kindle. Thus I ...

The Survivor's Song: Under the Hammer and Sickle - Budapest to Montreal by Andrew Fodor (Thomas C. Fodor) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

The first book of this two-volume series (Unarmed Soldiers: Budapest to Stalingrad and back) follows the author's three-years on the road with the Hungarian forced labor battalions during WWII, taking him from Budapest to the area of Stalingrad. Armed with only his wits, a smattering of courage, some unexpected help and lots of luck, he survived the brutal conditions with his joie de vivre and sense of humor intact. He had simply not allowed the fascists to break his spirit in the time of war, and, as he demonstrates in this volume, he certainly wasn't going to let the incompetent post-war communists do so either. In this volume, continuing to use the skill and inventiveness that helped him survive the war, he dabbles in forgery, distilling illegal liquor, commercial art, music, journalism, accountancy and much literary ado before finally realizing that the Great People's Republic didn't really need his expertise in order to make stupid decisions about the freshly-minted communist ...

Contains Active Table of Contents (HTML) and include a bonus link to the free audio book. The Book of Five Rings ( ??? Go Rin no Sho) is a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts in general, written by the Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi around 1645. There have been various translations made over the years, and it enjoys an audience considerably broader than only that of martial artists and people across East Asia: for instance, some foreign business leaders find its discussion of conflict and taking the advantage to be relevant to their work in a business context. The modern-day Hy?h? Niten Ichi-ry? employs it as a manual of technique and philosophy. Musashi establishes a "no-nonsense" theme throughout the text. For instance, he repeatedly remarks that technical flourishes are excessive, and contrasts worrying about such things with the principle that all technique is simply a method of cutting down one's opponent. He also continually makes the point that the understandings ...

Squatters. Dirty disheveled hippies lazing about smoking dope while occupying other people's properties? Maybe. Maybe not. Told from a former squatter's perspective, this insightful, compelling narrative digs deeper into the squatting subculture of 1970s London by exposing the myths, while at the same time acknowledging the truth behind the stereotype.

She immediately falls in love with London but with only a three-week ticket and limited funds, she needs a strategic plan to extend her adventure. And she must do so in a turbulent environment of critical housing shortages, a tanking British economy, multiple social protests and unpredictable Irish Republican Army activities. This is one woman's story of how she handled these socioeconomic issues, all while combating culture shock, to achieve her goal.
