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.

For the first time, ten years after her abduction from her Salt Lake City bedroom, Elizabeth Smart reveals how she survived and the secret to forging a new life in the wake of a brutal crime On June 5, 2002, fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. She was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life. Now for the first time, in her memoir, MY STORY, she tells of the constant fear she endured every hour, her courageous determination to maintain hope, and how she devised a plan to manipulate her captors and convinced them to return to Utah, where she was rescued minutes after arriving. Smart explains how her faith helped her stay sane in the midst of a nightmare and how she found the strength to confront her captors at their trial and see that justice was served. In the nine years after her rescue, Smart transformed from victim to advocate, traveling the country and working to educate, inspire and foster change. She has created a foundation to help prevent crimes against children and is a frequent public speaker. In 2012, she married Matthew Gilmour, whom she met doing mission work in Paris for her church, in a fairy tale wedding that made the cover of "People" magazine.

Timmans Titans: My World Chess Champions

Szachy > Książki New In Chess

The Stories and the Games:  Alekhine ­ Euwe ­ Botvinnik ­ Smyslov ­ Tal - Petrosian ­ Spassky ­ Fischer - Karpov ­ Kasparov For many years Jan Timman was one of the best chess players in the world. He combined his brilliant successes on the board with a passion for writing and meticulously analysing his own games and those of his rivals. Three times he was a World Championship Candidate and in 1993 he played in the final of the FIDE World Championship.  In this fascinating book, Jan Timman portrays ten World Chess Champions that played an important role in his life and career. Alexander Alekhine (1892-1946) he never met, but the story of how in Lisbon he bought one of the last chess sets belonging to the fourth World Champion is one of many highlights in this book.  Timman has a keen eye for detail and a fabulous memory, and he visibly enjoys sharing his insider views, including many revelations about the great champions. Timmans Titans not only presents a personal view of these chess giants, but is also an evocation of countless fascinating episodes in chess history.  Each portrait is completed by a rich selection of illustrative games, annotated in the authors trademark lucid style. Always to the point, sharp and with crystal-clear explanations, Timman shows the highs and lows from the games of the champions, including the most memorable games he himself played against them. Jan Timman  is a former world championship candidate who rose to the number two spot of the FIDE world rankings. He is the author of several highly acclaimed bestsellers, such as 'Curacao 1962', 'On the Attack!', 'Power Chess with Pieces' and 'The Art of the Endgame'. From the Judges Report of the ECF Book of the Year: What lifts this book is Timmans affectionate, intimate descriptions of the personalities of the world champions. The book must be read to obtain the full flavour of Timmans writing. It is by no means all reverential.  Timman can  be sharp (Fischers later life, Kasparovs chess politics); but also compassionate, despairing of Tals bohemian life style (..)  Timmans Titans  is the most informative, interesting and revealing book on the world champions covered, both as people and chess players. IM Jeroen Bosch, Schaakmagazine: "One of the finest chessbooks that have recently been published (..) Although Timman doesn't keep silent about matters such as matchfixing, abuse of power or excessive drinking, he writes his portraits with a fundamentally positive view." John Henderson, First Move: Brim full of insight, anecdotes, and well-annotated games that weve come to normally expect from the living legend. This is a smorgasbord of a book that will easily keep the reader amazed, entertained and thoroughly enthralled from cover to cover.Magnus Carlsen on reading  Timmans Titans : "It was very inspiring to relive some of the great ideas from the past" Sean Marsh, CHESS Magazine (UK): "A very interesing book, full of anecdotes I have never seen elsewhere (..) Entertaining and instructive, 'Timman's Titans' is also Timman's finest." B.H.Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad: "The many anecdotes will changes the views of quite a few readers (..) A classic." Uwe Bekemann, German Correspondence Chess Federation: "Even chess insiders will find in the stories a lot of information they don't know (..) I have always been a fan of Timman's way of annotating games. He makes what happens on the board very easily accessible, so much so that you feel yourself fully immersed in the secrets of the game."

"I grew up in a loud house with a lot to say, finding much of it left behind for paper and music to find," she says about these scraps that were never intended to be poetry, until she discovered "that's what they were." Set to the sounds of TVs and telephones, constant interruptions and messy choices, Joni's voice captures the human struggle beneath zooming-by, ever-shifting American joy. Her lens moves through the various spheres of life, tearing things apart in a gentle, welcome way. Earthy, but not pseudo spiritual; grounded, but not heavy with brain-thick molasses, she is a wise every-day sister who genuinely celebrates the conquering of despair with a coke and a cookie from the 711 down the street. Her first contribution of this kind, this journey told in a handful of pieces - which she calls sisters to her songs - is part of the story behind her life.But the poetry is for you. For you to walk down the pathways she has marked, to experience the freedom in your own body to enjoy new truths. It's a glance through a window where you'll find the moments of your day. And learn something about what you see.

The life story of Gary Gygax, godfather of all fantasy adventure games, has been told only in bits and pieces. Michael Witwer has written a dynamic, dramatized biography of Gygax from his childhood in Lake Geneva to his untimely death in 2008. Gygax's magnum opus, Dungeons & Dragons, would explode in popularity throughout the 1970s and '80s and irreversibly alter the world of gaming. D&D is the best-known, best-selling role-playing game of all time, and it boasts an elite class of alumni--Stephen Colbert, Robin Williams, and Junot Diaz all have spoken openly about their experience with the game as teenagers, and some credit it as the workshop where their nascent imaginations were fostered. Gygax's involvement in the industry lasted long after his dramatic and involuntary departure from D&D's parent company, TSR, and his footprint can be seen in the genre he is largely responsible for creating. But as Witwer shows, perhaps the most compelling facet of his life and work was his unwavering commitment to the power of creativity in the face of myriad sources of adversity, whether cultural, economic, or personal.Through his creation of the role-playing genre, Gygax gave two generations of gamers the tools to invent characters and entire worlds in their minds. Told in narrative-driven and dramatic fashion, Witwer has written an engaging chronicle of the life and legacy of this emperor of the imagination.

From the best-selling and award-winning author of The Devil's Arithmetic, Jane Yolen, comes her first Holocaust novel in nearly thirty years. Influenced by Dr. Mengele's sadistic experimentations, this story follows twins as they travel from the Lodz ghetto, to the partisans in the forest, to a horrific concentration camp where they lose everything but each other.It's 1942 in Poland, and the world is coming to pieces.At least that's how it seems to Chaim and Gittel, twins whose lives feel like a fairy tale torn apart, with evil witches, forbidden forests, and dangerous ovens looming on the horizon. But in all darkness there is light, and the twins find it through Chaim's poetry and the love they have for each other. Like the bright flame of a Yahrzeit candle, his words become a beacon of memory so that the children and grandchildren of survivors will never forget the atrocities that happened during the Holocaust.Filled with brutality and despair, this is also a story of poetry and strength, in which a brother and sister lose everything but each other.Nearly thirty years after the publication of her award-winning and bestselling The Devil's Arithmeticand Briar Rose, Yolen once again returns to World War II and captivates her readers with the authenticity and power of her words.Praise for Mapping the Bones:"Jane Yolen's Mapping the Bonesis a swift and deadly drama with overtones of dark fable we all wish we could forget.

"From Here to Maternity", Sinead Moriarty's third novel, tells the story of Emma Hamilton who embarks on the path to adopting a baby when she and her husband can't conceive. It manages to be both hilarious and incredibly moving and is comparable to the writing of Marian Keyes in its ability to balance light and shade in a heart-warming, thoughtful and satisfying story. Just as Emma Hamilton and her husband James become parents of an eight-month-old Russian baby, Yuri, they find out that Emma is pregnant. Which is a bit of a shock since they had come to terms with not being able to have children. Emma discovers that having her dreams come true brings a whole new set of problems as she is faced with well-meaning friends and family - and not-so-well-meaning maternity Nazis - telling her how to be a mother. Only her wonderful calm long-suffering husband, a mad family that makes her look like the down-to-earth sensible one, and fantastic friends whose lives are even crazier than her own, keep Emma from losing it, and in the end she comes through with her usual mix of humour, good-natured hysteria and real heart. Sinead Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. "From Here to Maternity" is a follow-up to "The Baby Trail" and "A Perfect Match", but it also stands on its own as a complete story. Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: "The Baby Trail"; "A Perfect Match"; "In My Sister's Shoes"; "Keeping It In the Family" (also titled "Whose Life Is It Anyway?"); "Pieces of My Heart"; "Me and My Sisters" and, "This Child of Mine".

Scott, New York Times Book Review , cover reviewFollowing on the heels of his New York Times bestselling novel Telegraph Avenue , Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon delivers another literary masterpiece: a novel of truth and lies, family legends, and existential adventure-and the forces that work to destroy us.In 1989, fresh from the publication of his first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh , Michael Chabon traveled to his mother's home in Oakland, California, to visit his terminally ill grandfather. Tongue loosened by powerful painkillers, memory stirred by the imminence of death, Chabon's grandfather shared recollections and told stories the younger man had never heard before, uncovering bits and pieces of a history long buried and forgotten. That dreamlike week of revelations forms the basis for the novel Moonglow , the latest feat of legerdemain from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon.Moonglow unfolds as the deathbed confession of a man the narrator refers to only as "my grandfather." It is a tale of madness, of war and adventure, of sex and marriage and desire, of existential doubt and model rocketry, of the shining aspirations and demonic underpinnings of American technological accomplishment at midcentury, and, above all, of the destructive impact-and the creative power-of keeping secrets and telling lies. It is a portrait of the difficult but passionate love between the narrator's grandfather and his grandmother, an enigmatic woman broken by her experience growing up in war-torn France. It is also a tour de force of speculative autobiography in which Chabon devises and reveals a secret history of his own imagination.From the Jewish slums of prewar South Philadelphia to the invasion of Germany, from a Florida retirement village to the penal utopia of New York's Wallkill prison, from the heyday of the space program to the twilight of the "American Century," the novel revisits an entire era through a single life and collapses a lifetime into a single week. A lie that tells the truth, a work of fictional nonfiction, an autobiography wrapped in a novel disguised as a memoir, Moonglow is Chabon at his most moving and inventive.
