A crisp clean first edition (as stated) no markings throughout, not an ex- l ib or price clipped: Vietnamese dissident Duong's first novel, now available for the first time in the U.S. (the writer's previously published books in English include Memories of a Pure Spring and Novel Without a Name), is an exposure of the corruption beneath the facade of postwar Vietnam. At the heart of the novel lies a triangle. Linh, a beautiful young woman, is married to her former professor, Nguyen. They live in relative comfort in Hanoi with their daughter, Huong Ly. Gradually Linh learns that Nguyen, who now works as a journalist, has become a mere hack for corrupt higher officials, lying on cue. In her revulsion, she separates from him. The book follows both Linh and Nguyen through Hanoi society after their breakup. Linh falls in love with a smooth-talking composer and artist, Tran Phuong, whose libidinal boldness disguises his fundamental timidity. He is married to Hoa, whose connections in the party support him; eventually, he even allows Hoa to berate Linh. Meanwhile Nguyen, who is disconcerted by his wife's desertion, has a brief affair with a promiscuous writer, Ngoc Minh. Her bohemian ways don't suit Nguyen, however. He drops his experiment of living with her just as he is assigned the task of spinning the news about an imprisoned cadre, Nguyen Thanh Hien, who has been accused of raping a series of women. He is also, Nguyen finds, in possession of probably illegal wealth, which he has used to bribe his way out of previous scrapes. Nguyen decides not to cover up Hien's crimes, but to expose him. The book does not, however, make Nguye, Hyperion, 2002, Shubhi Publications, 2002. First edition. Softcover. New. This book is a an effort to bring forth the contribution of great poets on English poetry. The book begins with chapter on William Blake and his poetic style. He touched matters which lay on the out skirts of the realm of pure poetry-political, social and religious. He belonged to those poets who, before the out break of the French revolution in 1781, set forward in verse some of the revolutionary ideas. William Blake is considered to be one of the pioneers in English poetry. The other great poets include Sir Walter Scott, Shelley, Epipsychidion and Keats. They essay on Walter Scott justifies the relation of the poetry of Scott to the time in which he lived then of the poetry itself. His poetic style is mingled with love and reverence. The other notable poet Shelley is discussed further. Shelley is one of the most striking instance in our time of the way in which an artist, ignored or abused in his own day, rises from the grave into which the critics have trampled him, and when their noxious have perished, lives as a power in the hearts of Man. The book ends with individual chapters on Epipsychidion and Keats whose contribution is nevertheless not less than the above three.

Book Description: After Saffron Casson discovers that she's adopted, life is never quite the same again. Her artistic parents and doting siblings adore her, but Saffy wants a piece of her past. So when her grandfather bequests a stone angel to her, Saffy knows she has to find it. Realising that her childhood in Siena holds the key, she secretly stows away on a car trip to Siena, with her new friend, Sarah. : Meanwhile, the rest of her family are engaged in their own wacky projects. Caddy, a hopeless student, is studying for her A Levels and desperately trying to pass her driving test. Indigo, the sole boy of the Casson family, is determined to rid himself of this fear of heights. And the youngest, Rose, a budding artist, has a knack for baiting her pompous dad, with entertaining results . . . : Amazon Review: Whitbread Book Award-winning author Hilary McKay is no stranger to high praise, but for Saffy's Angel she really deserves the top honours. This heavenly little book tells the story of Cadmium, Saffron, Indigo and Rose--siblings who are each as colourful as their exotic names suggest. : Close-knit and divinely eccentric, the family (under the not-so-stable guidance of their mother Eve and their weary father, Bill) chug along quite nicely until one day Saffron discovers she was adopted by the family following the death of her mother, Eve's twin sister. As Saffron tries to come to terms with the shocking news, her grandfather dies and bequeaths her a stone angel in his will. But where is it? Saffron, her remarkable family and her new found friend, Sarah, embark on a search that sees Saffy heading for Sienna in Italy while her brother and sisters determine to leave no stone unturned in their quest for the cherub they know will make all the difference in the world to their beloved adopted sister. : Saffy's Angel is written with a simple, understated elegance that allows the reader access to the kind of family we would all, secretly, love to belong to. Each character is drawn with an enviable artistry coupled with, one suspects, a tongue-in the cheek that adds a sharp realistic air to a modern household with a heart of pure, old-fashioned gold. And it is these fabulous characters who lead the unfurling of the story, easing the reader through the pages with an irresistible wit and warmth that smartly avoids cosiness but nonetheless leaves a soothing rosy glow. : Marvellous stuff from a marvellous author who has the potential to knock even the queen of children's fiction, Jacqueline Wilson, off her perch, this sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking book is a must-read. And don't be put off by the pinkness of the packaging: it might look terribly girly, but at the heart of the matter is a fantastically straightforward, deeply satisfying, superior read for anyone who has a heart and a few hours to spare. Suitable for ages 10 and over. --Susan Harrison : Review: Marvellous. (The Sunday Telegraph): I love this book. I still wish I'd written it (Sally Nichols Books For Keeps): Quirky and curious ... unforgettable. The central characters are strong, lovable - and unique. (Nic Knight, THE BOOKSELLER): A real feel-good novel, McKay treats us once again to one of her brilliantly characterised families. This is a really lovely book. (THE BOOKSELLER): A funny, exuberant story. (CAROUSEL): ... tale that is both funny and touching. (The Guardian): Hilary McKay excels in conveying the anarchic bedlam of family life ... deserves to be placed alongside such classics as Little Women and The Railway Children. (TES Primary): Saffy's Angel is a delight from start to finish ... a great feel-good book with characters you want to stay with for ever. Warm, beautifully crafted and always original, it's pure fun - a book to recommend without hesitation. (Whitbread Judges, as reported in Daily Mail) Size: 12.6 x 1.6 x 19.6 cm. 224 pages.

Summary: The strange history of auditory hallucination throughout the ages, and its power to shed light on the mysterious inner source of pure faith and unadulterated inspiration. Auditory hallucination is one of the most awe-inspiring, terrifying, and ill-understood tricks the human psyche is capable of. Muses, Madmen, and Prophetsreevaluates the popular conception of the phenomenon today and through the ages, and reveals the roots of the medical understanding and treatment of it. It probes history, literature, anthropology, psychology, and neurology to explain and demystify the experience of hearing voices, in a fascinating and at times funny quest for understanding. Daniel B. Smith's personal experience with the phenomenon-his father heard voices, and it was the great torment and shame of his father's life-and his discovery that some people learn to live in peace with their voices fuels this contemplative, brilliantly researched, and inspired book. Science has not been able to fully explain the phenomenon of auditory hallucination. It is a condition that has existed perhaps as long as we have-there is evidence of it in literature and even pre-literate oral histories from across all times and cultures. Smith presents the sophisticated and radical argument that a negative side effect of living as we do in this great age of medical science is that we have come to limit this phenomenon to nothing more than a biochemical glitch for which the only proper response is medical, pharmaceutical treatment. This ""pathological assumption"" can inflict great harm on the people who hear voices by ignoring the meaning and reality of the experience for them. But it also obscures from the rest of us a rich wellspring of knowledge about the essential source of faith and inspiration. As Smith examines the many incidences of people who have famously heard voices throughout history-Moses, Mohammed, Teresa of Avila, Joan of Arc, Rilke, William Blake, Socrates, and others-he considers the experience of auditory hallucination in light of its relationship to the nature of pure faith and as the key to the source of artistic inspiration. At the heart of Smith's exploration into the many extraordinary, strange, sometimes frightening and sometimes almost supernatural aspects of auditory hallucination is his driving personal need to comprehend an experience that, when considered in good faith, is as profound and complex as human consciousness itself., New York : Penguin Press, 2007, Xulon Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 116 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.5in.Many people today are praying and searching for a fresh, new, release of revival to come to their city, state, and to the nations. Many do not know what God is requiring of us to have this take place in our personal lives, churches, and cities. In Releasing Revival, Karyl Gaehring gives you biblical steps and a practical guide for God to release revival to you personally, to your church, city, and to the nations. (II Chronicles 7: 14), If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. We must remove all compromise from our lives, and live a dedicated, holy, and pure life before God, if we truly are wanting a fresh, real, move of God with signs, wonders, and miracles. As the Lord transforms our lives into His likeness, we have an inner motivation by Gods Spirit, to take and release the anointing that God has imparted to others. We bring Jesus to co-workers, to lost family members, to people God brings into our lives, and to a lost and dying world. Releasing Revival will challenge you to seek the face and heart of God. May you find the depths of Him, and find refreshing in your spirit, as God releases revival to you and those you impact.

They may be protecting something inside themselves, some fear or guilt or shame, or some private part of THEIR story that theyre not yet ready to share. Your openness might threaten themthat is when you need to lay aside all other feelings you may have concerning this and weigh in on the fact that you need to, for once in your life, do what is right for you to move on. without this person ever being a part of your life again as you have known it, sometimes for many yearsin my case nearly 13 years of being the Ex Wife which I prefer to be called the 1st wife. This is MY storyI am sure he has a story also. But this is what I put into the relationship and have learned. If indeed I can help someone that is my purpose for this book. If it is relaxing for you to read of someone elses experience, then that is good. Even if you may see humor in any part of my story, that is even greater since laughter can be healing. I had always thought I would be married all my life. We were so in love when we first met my friends would tell me that the xhubby appeared to be doing cartwheels when in my presence. I made him happy, I left him happythen we got married and all the pressures of the world he allowed to get in and slowly decay our once beautiful love. This is a love that many never have the luxury of knowing and I am so thankful that I was given this treasure. Even though he failed by ways of this world I never stopped loving him. I will love the man till the day I die. I believe in the old saying, If you love someone let them goI do not believe it the part of it that says if it truly is your it will come back to you. I am much too old for that part to happen. Not that it cant, but that I will not allow it because in the last 13 years I have become so set in my ways. And just how many chances do I take with opening up to someone I know so well. Our chance at a life together again as man and wife would have been after my dad passed on, then my heart was pure and open for this to happen, now way too much has passed by and I am much wiser. In a way God was watching out for me when xhubby denied us the chance to get back together. Things which have passed before us now I can see that the Lord would not want those issues in my life. My son has enough issues to deal with . But I am so very glad that for the years which we did share time with our son as a family unit after our divorce. We can never turn back the time and redo things. I am thankful that I worked through our divorce with an open heart ready to receive what God would give us. It is this unconditional love I have for my xhubby and son that allowed me to do this. There is nothing that x did to have earned this from me, if anything he had done everything to not deserve it. That is in the eyes of this world. But through the loving eyes of Christ, who have taught me to love and give and also receive, I was able to heal from the hurt and share holidays and moments with my x on a regular basis. Moments which you can never get back again but you all have the memories carried and treasured deeply within your souls. A place where no one can ever change or take them away from usThis is written to possibly give insight to those who may think they are alone in their struggle. It is not only for the divorced, separated, brokenhearted but also for those that may know someone who is living this nightmare and perhaps you can offer some comforting words to them or send them this book.

Paperback. New. Paperback. 110 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.9in. x 0.4in.The Asrar-i-Khudi is composed in the metre and modelled on the style of the famous Masnavi. In the prologue lqbal relates how Jalalud din Rumi, who is to him almost what Virgil was to Dante, appeared in a vision and bade him arise and sing. Much as he dislikes the type of Sufism exhibited by Hafiz, he pays homage to the pure and profound genius of Jalaluddin, though he rejects the doctrine of self-abandonment taught by the great Persian mystic and does not accompany him in his pan theistic Rights. Every one, I suppose, will acknowledge that the substance of the Asrar i-Khudi is striking enough to command attention. In the poem, naturally, this philosophy presents itself under a different aspect. Its audacity of thought and phrase is less apparent, its logical brilliancy dissolves in the glow of feeling and imagination, and it wins the heart before taking possession of the mind. The artistic quality of the poem is remarkable. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Spastic Cat Press, Ecco Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 224 pages. Dimensions: 7.8in. x 5.1in. x 0.5in.Brazen and given to transgressions, the narrator of this mordantly witty novel is an aloof, tough talking, married Manhattan woman who carries on three affairs simultaneously, blithely breaking seven of the Ten Commandments in her search for a safe place to land. Rootless, bouncing from bed to bed, she knows she is pure of heart. If only she could find where her heart got lost. Irreverent and achingly honest, she points to the small but infinitely deep cracks in our masks, drawing the reader into her world of misadventure -- erotic, comic, and deeply unsettling. Juggling four men -- her husband, the hit man, the multimedia artist, and the love of her life -- she cant decide whether she is out to prove or disprove the Talmudic wisdom: If you dont know where youre going, any road will take you there.
