Elizabeth's Landing Pyewacky Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Port Winston, Texas--home to sun, sand, and shopping. What's not to like? Everything, to 14 year-old Elizabeth Barker. It's the middle of her 9th grade year and Dad's uprooted the family, returning to his Gulf coast hometown. A once-bustling fishing community, Port Winston is pushing every boundary, vying to be the state's premier tourist destination. A far cry from quiet, Coulter City, Missouri where Elizabeth used to be somebody and family meant something a whole lot different. Between Mom's story assignment in Mexico, Dad's 14-hour workdays and weekends minding Grandpa at the docks, their once close-knit life is in shreds. Taunted as the newbie camera geek at school, Elizabeth's given up trying to fit in. When Grandpa, who's got more judgments than the Old Testament, pronounces her 10˘ shy of worthless and headed for trouble, Elizabeth bolts for Wayward Landing beach--the county's last wild haven. Her impulsive defense of an endangered, nesting sea turtle against a trio of bullies ignites new purpose, a challenging friendship, and troubles even Grandpa couldn't predict. Her fight to save the Landing unearths complex family ties to the powerful developer and a long-buried tragedy that catapults Elizabeth against those she loves. When the Deepwater Horizon oil slick threatens the Louisiana coast and the turtles' feeding grounds, Elizabeth's journalist mom hits the front lines. And Elizabeth's fears and plans hit overdrive. Elizabeth's Landing is a compelling environmental and family saga, bridging risk and loss with hope and hearts--human to human, human to animal, human to world. A portion of book sale profits supports sea turtle conservation and education programs.

The Sin Which Doth Easily Beset Us: My Personal Autobiography AuthorHouse

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book is autobiographical in nature. It's content contains an abbreviated recounting of the author's life from his youth, through his adolescence, into military life as a young adult, through to his retirement and beyond in his adult life. It is unapologetically Christian in it's flavor and is a testimonial to the power of God at work in the life of one lost soul who did not know he needed a Savior. Through sundry and bitter experiences, he presented it to the public only after much prayer and prompting by the Holy Spirit. It is written with the hope that any reader who may be going through similar experiences might know that they are not alone and that Jesus can free them from the chains of such addictions, if they allow him to. His personal prayer is that there be few in the Christian community who have to go through these degrading experiences, but that if there is, hope is as close as a heartfelt cry to God for liberation from the vices that enslaves them. May God bless you. Amen. Michael C. Wright, Ordained Chaplain-IdDPMI

Great Mirror of Male Love Stanford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The first complete translation of Nanshoku okagami by Ihara Saikaku (1642-93), this is a collection of 40 stories describing homosexual love affairs between samurai men and boys and between young kabuki actors and their middle-class patrons. Seventeenth-century Kyoto was the center of a flourishing publishing industry, and for the first time in Japan's history it became possible for writers to live exclusively on their earnings. Saikaku was the first to actually do so. As a popular writer, Saikaku wanted to entertain his readership. When he undertook the writing of Nanshoku okagami in 1687, it was with the express purpose of extending his readership and satisfying his ambition to be published in the three major cities of his day, Kyoto, Osaka, and Edo. He chose the topic of male homosexual love because it had the broadest appeal both to the samurai men of Edo and to the townsmen of Kyoto and Osaka, his regular audience. Homosexual relations between a man and a boy were a regular feature of premodern Japanese culture and carried no stigma. When a boy reached the age of nineteen, he underwent a coming-of-age ceremony, after which he took the adult role in relations with boys. The first twenty stories in Nansoku okagami feature boys from the samurai class whose lives exemplified the ideals of boy love; the second group of twenty stories shifts its focus to young kabuki actors who exemplified boy love in their own way, serving as prostitutes in the theater districts of the three major cities. The stories, which eschew the explicitly erotic, touch on many interesting aspects of life in premodern Japan, notably samurai connoisseurship of boy love, with its emphasis on loyalty between lover and beloved, the Buddhist tradition of love between priests and acolytes as a means of spiritual enlightenment, the life and pleasures of the urban classes, and the world of the kabuki theater.
