Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Big Wolf and Little Wolf, Such a Beautiful Orange! Enchanted Lion Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the third and last book in the Big Wolf series. Once again Olivier Tallec's illustrations, which are bold in perspective and full of feeling, deepen the story. Departing from the previous two books, this story takes place in a city, albeit one with a park and a tree on a hill. Big Wolf and Little Wolf have gone on an adventure. Little Wolf sees an orange and goes after it, but he doesn't return. Big Wolf plunges into the urban jungle in search of Little Wolf. He finds the orange, but not his friend. Fear and loneliness overtake him, but he perseveres. Finally, he comes into a clearing of light, where he finds Little Wolf near where he lost him. Big Wolf has gone full circle and, as these things go, everything has changed. Big Wolf has undertaken an interior journey, gone through the metaphorical forest, and come out fuller and richer and more himself. This is a deep story about true friendship and how it helps to make us who we are. Nadine Brun-Cosme is the author of over twenty juvenile novels and picture books. She lives in France. Her book Big Wolf and Little Wolf is a 2010 Batchelder Honor book. Olivier Tallec was born in Brittany, France, in 1970. After graduating from the Ecole Superieure d'Art Graphic in Paris, he worked in advertising as a graphic designer, after which he devoted himself to illustration. Since then he has illustrated more than sixty books, seven of which have been published by Enchanted Lion Books.

Evenings on Paisley Avenue Hidden Brook Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Introduction by Marilyn Gear Pilling I met the seven poets featured in this book when they were my students in McMaster University's Creative Writing Certificate Program. A couple of years after McMaster discontinued this program, the group approached me to continue to teach them privately from home. So began our Evenings on Paisley Avenue. We have worked together for years now, and in the winter of 2013, a publisher happened to be in the audience when Pauline Hewak read her poetry aloud as an opening reader for the Hamilton Poetry Centre. While the audience mingled after the reading, the publisher approached Pauline and me, and said that he would like to publish Pauline's work as a book, if I would edit it. Pauline had not written enough poems for a book. A couple of weeks later, I let the publisher know that we had a group of seven equally-talented poets, and proposed that he publish a selection of work by all seven. He agreed. To have a book fall into one's lap like this, in these days, is as rare as sighting a three- toed sloth having coffee in Westdale Village. I am delighted to introduce readers to each of these seven talented Hamilton and area writers, all of whom are now being published, poem by poem, in a wide variety of journals. Blurb for back cover: I have told the story of this book's genesis in the Preface. The place of conception was Bryan Prince Bookseller, our much loved, neighbourhood independent bookstore that has long been considered the heart of Hamilton's writing community. Visit www.princebooks.net for online shopping if you are not lucky enough to live near this book h(e)aven! M.G.P. This book is the debut of seven talented writers who are just beginning to be widely published. Anyone who grew up in Hamilton or lives here now will recognize many of the locales of the poems, but there is also universal appeal and a wide range here: work that is by turns lyrical, humourous, quirky, soulful. The local and the personal are interwoven with mythology and history. In the families, the dilemmas and the individual people depicted here, you will recognize your own.

Original Knowing BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: Did Lucy know God? Could Neanderthals talk? Was Ardi self-conscious? These are the strange new breed of questions emerging as we discover more and more about our prehistoric origins--questions about knowing. While fossil digs and carbon dating tell a remarkable story about the bones and times of our ancient ancestors, we cannot help wondering what they knew, and when. Exploring such questions Original Knowing takes contemporary science as seriously as religious tradition and searches for the story behind this odd creature who senses more to the universe than meets the eye. In limestone bluffs and butterfly migrations, from Stone Age tool-making to Sumerian beer-making, clues are sought to better understand this strange mind that ponders the origins of its own existence. When do babies point, and why does it matter? What does throwing a Frisbee reveal about our distant ancestors? Is language the key to our minds as many believe? Or perhaps the heart of knowing rests in something more basic, in a smile, and the powerful social abilities at work allowing us to sense a depth to life--to our own lives--a depth that our minds help us glimpse if only through a glass darkly. Endorsements: "Wigger has written a fascinating book dealing with ways of knowing. He recognizes the questions we ask are critically important and we can't shut ourselves off from the answers we find, even when they make us uncomfortable. Join him on his exploration of religion and science, and the intersection of the two. You won't be disappointed!" --Michael Zimmerman, Founder and Executive Director, The Clergy Letter Project "In the Genesis creation story, Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge, and this changed them forever; their 'eyes were opened.' What does this mean in light of modern science? This book presents an exciting journey through deep time, starting with a 500-million-year-old trilobite and continuing through the ways of knowing in humans, such as tool-making, music, education, consciousness, and religion." --Helen De Cruz, Catholic University of Leuven and the University of Oxford "With the deceptive simplicity of a storyteller spinning tales around a campfire, and the acumen of an astronomer pointing out the constellations, Wigger unfolds the narrative of human consciousness: from where did knowing emerge and why; what does it mean to know our origins, ourselves, and one another; how does our capacity to know satisfy our longing for communion? Sit beside Wigger and be amazed, both at this wonder we call knowing and at his ability to illuminate its mysteries." --Frank Rogers Jr., Claremont School of Theology "In conversational prose that can at times be mistaken for poetry, Wigger blends the fruits of scientific, literary, and religious imagination to narrate the long story of how the capacity for such forms of imagination arose in the first place. The combination of sensitive reflection on personal experience, clear explanation of relevant scientific theory, and thoughtful appraisal of spiritual implications makes this book a joy to read." --Douglas L. Gragg, Harvard Divinity School About the Contributor(s): J. Bradley Wigger has been a Professor at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary since 1997. He is the author of The Texture of Mystery (1998), The Power of God at Home (2003), and Together We Pray (2005).

Last Human YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book tells the story of human evolution, the epic of homosapiens and its colourful precursors and relatives. The story begins in Africa, six to seven million years ago, and encompasses twenty known human species, of which homosapiens are the sole survivor. Illustrated with spectacular, three-dimensional scientific reconstructions portrayed in their natural habitat developed by a team of physical anthropologists at the American Museum of Natural History and in concert with experts from around the world, the book is both a guide to extinct human species and an astonishing hominid family photo album. "The Last Human" presents a comprehensive account of each species with information on its emergence, chronology, geographic range, classification, physiology, life style, habitat, environment, cultural achievements, and co-existing species, and possible reasons for extinction. Also included are summaries of fossil discoveries, controversies, and publications. What emerges from the fossil story is a new understanding of homosapiens. No longer credible is the notion that our species is the end product of a single lineage, improved over generations by natural selection. Rather, the fossil record shows, we are a species with widely varied precursors, and our family tree is characterized by many branchings and repeated extinctions.

Straw into Gold DEEP BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Straw into Gold Illness, Loss, and Hardship as a Path to Inner Peace Diane LaRae Bodach This book is a journey about being human, about opening to life in whatever form it takes and extending loving kindness to oneself and others no matter what. It tells the story of many who have endured great physical and emotional losses in the form of chronic illness, pain and disability as well as through relationships and identities that, once held dear, are stripped away. Diane LaRae Bodach is brutally honest, yet wholly compassionate, in her self-examination, and in the telling of her spiritual and physical journey through life, including chronic illness, cancer, and impending death. Her experiences and wisdom, her willingness to be with life and self exactly as they are, and to open to all that comes her way -- no matter how difficult -- can benefit us all. Although this book journeys through intense pain and loss, the ultimate teaching is that whoever you are, and no matter what life presents, love, compassion and joy are always possible; suffering is optional. ISBN: 978-1-57733-223-7 Endorsements "A beautifully written, searingly honest, and profoundly moving account of one woman's journey through chronic illness and suffering, and the life lessons she learned." Jim Dreaver, author of End Your Story, Begin Your Life "I had the unique privilege of working closely with Diane during the last year of her life as part of her integrative health care team. Diane was a gifted writer and poet, an out-of-the-box spirit who would come in for her vitamin infusion dressed in a long blue wig with wild sunglasses. She never lost her sense of humor throughout the ravages of dealing with chronic illness and then cancer. In her last month of life, she presided over her 'living' wake, a wild and wonderful dress-up party outdoors, with Diane in her bed on the throne under the spreading oak tree. Her unique talents make her story not only touching, but exquisitely and subtly expressed. During her last days, we took turns reading to her aloud to put the final touches on her editing, with many tears of sadness and joy being shed. This book is a treasure." Elaine Weil, Nurse Practitioner, Amitabha Medical Clinic and Healing Center, Sebastopol, CA "Many years of illness and pain prepared Diane for her last adventure with friends to the Sonoma Coast. Propped up on many pillows and blankets she ate dark chocolate and ripe raspberries while singing 'Give yourself to Love' and experienced the total joy we shared with her so often throughout her dying process." Tom Meyskens, lover of spoken poetry, fellow Love Choir member and friend "Diane fully engaged in her life and her death. She didn't want to miss anything. Though debilitated, weak, and living with chronic pain, she traveled with us to Mexico and went on by herself to another retreat, sending us home with a suitcase of homeopathic drugs and other heavy items. She camped, canoed, and attended musical festivals during her last throws with cancer with a 'little' help from her friends. At her request, we have spread her ashes in beautiful places where the people she loves go and can be with her. She was a great teacher. She shared her joy and her tears, her life and her death with grace, honesty, and openness. Straw into Gold shares Diane's amazing journey and imparts the wisdom of a woman who inspired many with the way she moved beyond illness, hardship, and dying to embrace love and life."

The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. That?s how this extraordinary autobiography began.Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs.He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as ?The Big Bang?: seeing Elvis Presley?s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work and shows us why the song ?Born to Run? reveals more than we previously realized.Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock star?s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll.Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs (?Thunder Road,? ?Badlands,? ?Darkness on the Edge of Town,? ?The River,? ?Born in the U.S.A.,? ?The Rising,? and ?The Ghost of Tom Joad,? to name just a few), Bruce Springsteen?s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences

Excerpt from Among the Camps: Or Young People's Stories of the War In early education no other form of literature is, on the whole, quite equal to the true story. At certain ages most children have a taste for myth, legend, and fairy tale, and some few like poetry. But every child dearly loves the true story - loves it not at any particular age, but at all times. But the story must be true - not merely nor even necessarily true to the letter, but true to life, to nature, to experience. And it must be true to the possibilities of personal experience as these are conceived by the reader or listener. Such, in eminent degree, are the six stories by Thomas Nelson Page here presented. The heroes and heroines of these stories - and they are real heroes and heroines - are boys and girls from seven to fourteen years of age. Their wholesome thoughts and feelings, the true courage, moral as well as physical, displayed in their eventful careers, appeal strongly to the sympathy and admiration of children of like age, and scarcely less to youth and adult. Every story is instinct with moral stimulation. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

A Jungian analyst, she works with metaphors and meanings related to the illness and uses her dreams, inner journeys, and poetry to deepen into and under the reality of cancer. She shares her exploration with the hope that it may help others reflect on their experiences and find insights from understanding cancer as a source of wisdom. For all those who have been touched by the disease and for those who love them, care about them, care for them, breast cancer can be a soul journey. "Women diagnosed with breast cancer often describe the experience as having many layers-physical, emotional, psychological, relational, social, spiritual, and even financial. Considering the experience as a journey of the soul is an opportunity to move beyond the effects of breast cancer and into a more expansive, meaning-making exploration. Patricia's story is a generous gift to all who have experienced breast cancer and felt drawn to a deeper understanding of the point where one's essence and illness intersect. This is definitely a trip you'll be glad you took." -Jeannie Cella, MS, LCPC, executive director of Wellness House "With compassion and intelligence, Patricia Greer offers a readable and generous personal exploration of the potential meanings of breast cancer. Embracing the symbolic attitude of Jungian methods, which activate and engage unconscious layers of psyche, she focuses on cancer as teacher, a metaphoric guide to deeper self-awareness and self-knowledge. This soulful meditation on the healing power of image is a rich, sensitive contribution full of embodied wisdom, evocative language, and transcendent depth. An inspirational book for therapists, patients, and for all women and their families and friends whose lives have been touched by cancer and illness." -Judith Cooper, PsyD, clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst "Patricia Greer creates a profound pathway for those with cancer and their loved ones. She intimately shares the sacred healing capacity of dream and image that she personally experienced during her long journey with cancer. Her image of the single redbud tree resonated for me long after I put the book down. Joining Patricia on her underworld journey with cancer, I too was immersed in a deep experience of navigating the darkest nights of the soul. I am deeply touched by Patricia's work and feel her offering is tending the soul in and of the world." -Stephen Aizenstat, PhD, chancellor and founding president, Pacifica Graduate Institute Patricia Greer, MA, PhD, is a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst who has been seeing clients for more than thirty years. She has used her experience of breast cancer to deepen her ability to accompany her clients on their journeys of individuation and is especially interested in helping women identify and speak in their authentic voices and attend to and honor the wisdom of soul.
