Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Perhaps I should have realized that cancer runs in my family. After all, three grandparents and my father and brother perished from this disease. Yet, when I received my colorectal cancer diagnosis, I was surprised. I never expected to be primarily identified as a cancer patient. Following a typical combination of chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and more chemo, I was presumably cancer-free when my post-treatment scans looked clean. Nonetheless, within a year I received a terminal diagnosis; cancer had metastasized in my lungs. Thus began my year as a dead woman--a time of chaotic emotions, new priorities, and rapid-fire plans and changes. Expecting the unexpected became a theme in my life, but the things that turned out to be most shocking are social, familial, and even my expectations about what is realistic for a dead woman to be or do." Preconceptions about a terminal cancer diagnosis frequently are based on popular culture depictions of cancer and dying, which can be misleading as a guide for knowing what to expect when you're expecting to die. This memoir provides one woman's often-irreverent, pop culture-illustrated guide to life that deconstructs some common preconceptions about living with a terminal diagnosis.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Spend a year in the company of the ancient Egyptians, during the twenty-sixth and final year of the reign of Amenhotep II (c.1400 BC), which saw a royal transition bringing Thutmose IV to the throne of Upper and Lower Egypt. While builders from the secluded village of royal tomb workers rush to complete Amenhotep's tomb, and craftsmen labour to finish the numerous extravagant objects to accompany the god-king in his burial, most Egyptians go about their daily lives in ways unchanged for eons. Following the Egyptian calendar year, which was divided into three seasons (flooding, sowing and harvest), we will meet a farmer and his family, an embalmer, an artisan, a royal physician, a priest and even a royal wife as they live their lives in Thebes and Memphis during the eighteenth dynasty of the New Kingdom in this remarkable year in ancient Egyptian history.

This book was released on 2019-04-25 with total page 64 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When my grandmother passed away, I inherited a wonderful memento, a chest containing her handwritten twenty-page memoir. A Year in the Life of a Southern Girl features one year of my grandmother’s life around the year 1900, describing life in small town Arkansas at the turn of the century. In it, my paternal grandmother comes of age, tells her favorite funny family stories, and at the same time, demonstrates her faith in God. Along with her stories, I have also included my other grandmother’s tales, as well as my own research and stories. All these tales are fiction based on facts. The stories remind us of what we have forgotten of “the good old days,” how to be at peace even in the worst of times, and how to trust that life will get better. And, we should all share a laugh in the meantime.

This book was released on 2016-10-13 with total page 106 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One Year in the Life of a Dog By LTC Clifton H. Deringer Jr. USA (Ret.) “Tip” One Year in the Life of a Dog follows the story of Friend, a dog that can hear the thoughts of humans and respond telepathically. There are humans who are gifted with understanding the telepathy in animals and a university student who interviews Friend is blessed with such a gift. The book follows their interactions and various events that occur within their world. Intrigue, deception, kidnapping, and prejudice are woven seamlessly with love, understanding, sympathy, and acceptance. Barney and Jeff, Friend’s owners, are a homosexual, bi-racial couple. Seeing their lives from Friend’s point of view speaks on many levels to how ridiculous and outdated prejudice is. Barney and Jeff are just as loving and fulfilled as any other happy couple. Many of the characters with whom Friend interacts are not open to the couple’s way of life, but quickly realize their mistake when they see how lovely Barney and Jeff truly are. There are harrowing situations that breed a deeper understanding of the differences between people; this book is truly a tool to teach readers to love all, despite the different ways the characters live their lives.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the years of Mexican President Calderone, drug cartels fought pitched battles against other cartels, the police, the army, and the good citizens of Mexico. Kidnappings, murder, threats, and intimidation by drug cartels impinged on every facet of Mexican life. This story of the de la Vega family in Culiacan, the state capital of the Mexican state of Sinaloa, tells of their struggles with the death of their beloved sister and the courageous brothers who become a force exacting revenge on the Pacific cartel. The family ancestors moved away from Southern California during the 1840's as the influx of white settlers changed the culture and created certain discriminations against Mexican-Americans. The family legend is the de la Vegas sold out and relocated to Culiacan, Mexico where they quickly established prominence socially and financially. In Culiacan, the whispers are frequently heard of their great wealth and of being descendents of the great Zorro. Eduardo de la Vega, known for his dedication to his community and his patients as a noted benefactor and surgeon, and Teodoro de la Vega, a Jesuit priest, beloved by all who know him, vow to protect their city from the cartel. The de la Vegas act with extraordinary stealth, boldly striking at the cartel. Eduardo de la Vega leads a secret life of retribution abetted by his adopted brother, the business wizard, Flaco' Salas. This is a tale of adventure, action love, honor, and strength of family despite constant danger and threat.

Summary Book Review Anniversaries :

Download or read book Anniversaries written by Uwe Johnson and published by New York Review of Books. This book was released on 2018-10-16 with total page 1720 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A landmark of 20th Century literature about New York in the late 1960s, now in English for the first time. Late in 1967, Uwe Johnson set out to write a book that would take the unusual form of a chapter for every day of the ongoing year. It would be the tale of Gesine Cresspahl, a thirty-four-year-old single mother who is a German émigré to Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and of her ten-year-old daughter, Marie—a story of work and school, of friends and lovers and the countless small encounters with neighbors and strangers that make up big-city life. An everyday tale, but also a tale of the events of the day, as gleaned by Gesine from The New York Times: Johnson could hardly foresee the convulsions of 1968, but some of the news—the racial unrest roiling America, the escalating war in Vietnam—was sure to be news for some time yet to come. Finally, it would be a tale told by Gesine to Marie about Gesine’s childhood in a small north German town, of her independent and enterprising father, of her troubled mother, of Nazi Germany (Gesine was born the year Hitler came to power) and World War II and Soviet retribution and the grimly regulated realities of Communist East Germany. An ambitious historical novel as well as a wonderfully observed New York novel, Anniversaries would take in the unsettled world of the present along with the twentieth century’s ­disastrous past, while vividly depicting the struggle of a loving, though hardly uncomplicated mother and a bright, indomitably curious girl to understand and care for each other and to shape a human world. Gesine and Marie are among the most memorable and engaging characters in literature, and Anniversaries, at once monumental and intimate, sweeping and full of incident, stylistically adventurous and endlessly absorbing, is quite simply one of the great books of our time.

Summary Book Review Anniversaries, Volume 1 :

Download or read book Anniversaries, Volume 1 written by Uwe Johnson and published by New York Review of Books. This book was released on 2021-07-27 with total page 912 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first volume of a titanic masterpiece of twentieth-century literature, named one of the best books of 2019 by The New York Times critics. Published to great acclaim as a two-part boxed set in 2019, Anniversaries will now be available as two individual volumes. It is August 1967, and Gesine Cresspahl, born in Germany the year that Hitler came to power, a survivor of war, of Soviet occupation, and of East German Communism, has been living with her ten-year-old daughter, Marie, in New York City for six years. Mother and daughter find themselves caught up in the countless stories of the world around them: stories of work and school and their neighborhood, with its shifting and varied cast of characters, as well as the stories that Gesine reads in The New York Times every day—about Che Guevara, racial violence, the war in Vietnam, and the US elections to come. Now, with Marie growing up, Gesine has decided to tell her daughter the story of her own childhood in a small north German town in the 1930s and ’40s. Amid memories of Germany’s criminal and disastrous past and the daily barrage of news from a world in disarray, Gesine, conscientious, self-scrutinizing, with a sharp sense of humor, struggles to describe what she has learned over the years and what she hopes to pass on to Marie. Marie, articulate, quizzical, with a perspective that is very much her own, has plenty of questions, too. Uwe Johnson’s intimate portrait of a mother and daughter is also a panorama of past and present history and the world at large. Comparable in richness of invention and depth of feeling to Joyce’s Ulysses and Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, Anniversaries is one of the world’s great novels.
