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.

Whose Life is it Anyway? Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In her fifth novel, "Whose Life Is It Anyway?", Sinead Moriarty has done it again: taken a complex topic - what happens when a young woman falls in love with someone dramatically different than the kind of man her family would have expected - and created an insightful, gripping and moving story filled with delightfully sparky characters, plenty of straight-talking, and all her trademark fun and humour. In balancing of light and shade, pathos and comedy, Sinead manages to pull off a unique feat - a story that combines the provocative qualities of a Jodi Picoult story with the warmth and humour of Marian Keyes. It's tricky for Niamh O'Flaherty, growing up in a North London home that's a shrine to all things Irish. But it's even trickier being an adult and realizing that her family expects her to settle down with a nice Irish lad, especially now that she's living in Dublin. When Niamh finally meets the love of her life he is the last person she would expect to fall for her. Pierre is older and an intellectual, but she loves his ability to laugh at himself, his calmness and strength of character, and, of course, his stunning looks. There's just one problem: if Pierre's parents - Jean and Fleur - are sniffy about their pride and joy hooking up with a girl who writes a fluffy newspaper column, her parents, Mick and Annie, are going to go ballistic when they hear that their daughter intends to marry someone who couldn't be less Irish if he tried...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. "Whose Life Is It Anyway?" is Sinead at her very best. (It is also published under the title "Keeping It In the Family".) Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: "The Baby Trail"; "A Perfect Match"; "From Here to Maternity"; "In My Sister's Shoes"; "Pieces of My Heart"; "Me and My Sisters" and "This Child of Mine".

In My Sister's Shoes Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In one of the many fantastic reviews for Sinead Moriarty's fourth novel, "In My Sister's Shoes", the reviewer praised Sinead's ability to apply 'the light tender touch to dark, painful subjects'. It's a perfect description of how Sinead tells the story of a younger sister stepping in to help out when her older sister is diagnosed with cancer. In a similar way to Marian Keyes, Sinead manages to balance light and dark with wonderful finesse, warmth and humour. Kate O'Brien is thirty and has very little to think about except trying to keep her balance as she totters up London's media-land ladder. Fiona O'Brien is Kate's responsible older sister - with a husband, twin boys, a dog and now ...a life-changing problem. It's a problem that means Kate going back to Dublin. Pronto. There she finds herself stepping into Fiona's shoes - and discovering that she's definitely not cut out to be a domestic goddess. On top of that, the ex she thought she'd got over years ago turns up to haunt her. Will either of the O'Brien sisters survive? And even if they do, can either of them slip back into their old shoes ever again? 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. "In My Sister's Shoes" is Sinead at her very best.

Empire of Imagination Bloomsbury Academic USA

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

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.

Sinead Moriarty's delicious tenth novel, The Secrets Sisters Keep, is the story of three sisters, three life-altering problems and one eternal truth: nobody knows you quite like a sister! Sinead's writing mixes the worldly wit of Jane Green with the down-to-earth warmth and insight of Marian Keyes and will remind people just how important their sisters - and their friends-who-are-like-sisters - are to them. The Devlin sisters rely on each other - but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends...Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now that they've inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting. Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control everything in her world is beyond her. And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older - that's until her ex-husband finds a younger model. All three women think that some battles are best fought alone. Maybe they need to think again...Praise for Sinead: "Moving, disarmingly honest and at times laugh-out-loud funny". (Sunday Times). "One of the brightest voices in modern women's fiction". (Bella). "Sinead Moriarty can bring readers from hilarity to heartbreak with great deftness". (Sunday Independent). "Touching, warm, funny and emotional. She has the gift of telling a very emotive story with grace and empathy". (Woman's Way). Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her previous titles are: The Baby Trail; A Perfect Match; From Here to Maternity; 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; This Child of Mine and Mad About You.

'Awheel to Live is the story of childhood in a dysfunctional and scandal-prone family of car enthusiasts. It goes on to describe boarding-school life about which, even after seventy years, the author retains mixed feelings. It then recounts the earning of a living in the car and related trades while embattled with continually troublesome health of both physical and psychological kinds. Michael Doland plays down those dramas and makes clear that he intended from his adult beginnings to get as much fun out of life as he could. That he succeeded is revealed by some very funny episodes. However, at the end of it all and before sending the story and its many photographs (some of which have long narrative captions) to the printers he had to admit that his memoir could not by any stretch pro ve to be everyone' s cup of tea, so he provided some completed manuscripts copies for friends to read. That there are only five to whom he sent his work points up a reluctance to send anything to people who might only respond with pleasing comments. He felt he could rely on the honest opinions of those few. He is pleased to name them.' "A wonderful effort and good detailing. I hope to get a copy soon." - JRHS Young, The Talbot Owners Club, re-established in 2004. "Having followed its gestation since 1995, I couldn't put it down, even the parts I' d read before. If you can't get a publisher I'll put up the money to do a desktop for you." - John Talbot Dean, Dorsetman. "Jolly good. I loved the bits about Bournemouth and its respectability but seedy underpinnings all those years ago. But why do you disguise names? Surely they are all dead now, and I remember "Hannah" all right but would love to know who "Horrey" was. Wonderful characters. And you are terribly good about your parents - very difficult, that." - David de Souza, lifelong Bournemouth resident. "Astonishing. The Brown Girl is beautifully written and your buying a half-share in a racing car- from someone you did not know is a story with an edge and good characterisation. I am giving you the name of my Agent. Good luck." - Richard [Watership Down] Adams. You certainly can write! And your love of the G' uvnor whose car I own is clear and moving. I must get a hardback to keep with the car. Sincerely" - Kevin Ringham, Bentley Drivers Club, Australia.

From Here to Maternity Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"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".

Sinead Moriarty's breathtaking eighth novel, This Child of Mine, is the story of two daughters, two mothers and the extraordinary bond of motherly love. It's a unique blend of the storytelling genius of Jodi Picoult and the compassion and humour of Marian Keyes, in a complex and deeply involving story that will have readers arguing about the nature of motherhood and the rights and wrongs of the characters' actions. Sophie is a happy 18-year-old living in London with Anna, her Irish mother. Anna has devoted her life to Sophie. It may be just the two of them but Anna has more than enough love to give. Sophie has everything she could ever need. Laura is a not-so-happy artist. She too has a daughter, Mandy. But Laura is haunted by the loss of her first child, Jody. Happy-go-lucky as she is, Mandy lives in Jody's shadow and wonders why her mother can never let go. Both mothers carry secrets and cannot forget the day their paths crossed. But a chance discovery is about to bring everything into the open and mothers and daughters, love and lies, past and future, will spectacularly collide. 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.
