Book Excerpt :

"She was a grown young woman when she was overtaken by what she supposed to be the climax of her fate. It was when the face and figure of a great tragedian began to haunt her imagination and stir her senses. The persistence of the infatuation lent it an aspect of genuineness. The hopelessness of it colored it with the lofty tones of a great passion." The novel "The Awakening" by Kate Chopin centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle between her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. "The Awakening" was first published in 1899.

Book Short Summary:

In his stunning debut of stories, Jules S. Damji explores the social ethos of an immigrant Asian community set in the early 1960s through to the 1970s, a decade of immense political changes that marked many peoples lives in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Starting with Mango Tree, a metaphor of stability which embodies a center around which a community revolves, only to be seen destroyed and a way of life lost; Caretaker tenderly reveals the hidden and wretched historical past of a man dedicated to service his community; the nefarious characters in Middlemen are a poignant reminder of human flaws: graft, greed, manipulation, lust, and power; family relationships in Marxist and His Sister and A Household Divided wickedly and woefully capture the predicament universally endured by so many when an ideology is embraced to the point of fault; Oyster Bay and Freedom Fighter is a cry for breaking away and a genesis of a writer; and ending with Family Reunion, a glimpse into the narrators desire to illuminate his fading past. Sometimes with strokes of simple and lucid prose that tugs your heart, other times with cool detachment and assured maturity that bucks your sensibility, Mr. Damji masterfully chronicles a slice of history through the tragically comic fictional characters set in Dar es Salaams residential district of Upanga, a setting intimately familiar to him.

People and simple events have always fascinated me. Trying to capture them on paper has made me an incurable writer.

By accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior, I have learned to appreciate my past and have hope for the future. Thereby, I have become contented.

Book Short Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “An engaging romp guaranteed to please . . . perfectly written in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.”—USA Today In England’s young silent-film industry, the megalomaniacal Randolph Fflytte is king. But rumors of criminal activities swirl around his popular movie studio. At the request of Scotland Yard, Mary Russell travels undercover to the set of Fflytte’s latest cinematic extravaganza, Pirate King. Based on Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance, the project will either set the standard for moviemaking for a generation . . . or sink a boatload of careers. As the company starts rehearsals in Lisbon, the thirteen blond-haired, blue-eyed actresses whom Mary is chaperoning meet the swarm of real buccaneers Fflytte has recruited to provide authenticity. But when the crew embarks for Morocco and the actual filming, Russell senses ominous currents of trouble: a derelict boat, a film crew with many secrets, decks awash with budding romance—and now the pirates are ignoring Fflytte and answering only to their outlaw leader. Where can Sherlock Holmes be? As movie make-believe becomes true terror, Russell and Holmes themselves may experience a final fadeout. Features Laurie R. King’s short story Beekeepers for Beginners and an excerpt from Garment of Shadows.

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction In Pins and Needles, Karen Brown explores the dynamics of love and longing between mother and child, husband and wife, close friends, and virtual strangers, often peeling back the facade of a seemingly stable suburban life to reveal the secrets and transgressions that even good people can be guilty of. In “She Fell to Her Knees,” Nell inherits the neglected house in which her mother died years before, and begins an affair with the neighbor. The narrator of “Apparitions,” who has recently returned the blind grandson she was raising to the care of his mother, invites a confused young man into her home. In “The Ropewalk,” a bartender haunted by her abandonment of her own child aids a customer in a struggle for custody of her daughters. A pregnant teenager in “Unction” comes to accept the reality of her situation while working a summer job in a bookbinding shop. Annie, the young mother with a tragic past in “Pins and Needles,” leaves her infant daughter to go on an errand in a snowstorm, and picks up a boy she doesn't know. Evocative, sexy, and haunting, these are stories that readers won't soon forget.

Book Short Summary:

A laugh-out-loud, cry-your-eyes-out series, bursting with raw emotion, witty banter, and swoon-worthy romance. All three Saratoga Falls Love Stories PLUS an exclusive box set-only short story collection. Big things can happen, even in a small, mountain town like Saratoga Falls. Sam, Mac, Nick, and Reilly know that better than anyone. They’ve been best friends all their lives and gotten into their fair share of sticky spots and shenanigans, they’ve fallen in love and nursed broken hearts, lost loved ones, and reveled in the pleasantly unexpected along the way. They’ve always been there for one another, especially throughout their rollercoaster journeys to self-discovery and happily ever after. Saratoga Falls is a laugh-out-loud, cry-your-eyes-out series about second chances and the unwavering power of friendship. Bursting with raw emotion, witty banter, and swoon-worthy romance, you’ll feel like one of the crew and fall in love with Saratoga Falls. 1 - Whatever It Takes (Sam and Reilly) Sam is no stranger to hard work or regret. Working on her father’s horse ranch keeps her focused, which keeps her sane. That is until a heat wave, a pair of familiar blue eyes, and a camping trip with her friends leaves her questioning everything she’s become in the wake of the most horrific night of her life. Whatever It Takes is a story about forgiveness, finding hope in second chances, and embracing the past, especially when he comes rumbling back to town in a lifted, cherry-red pickup truck. 2 - Nothing But Trouble (Mac and Colton) Mac is a lot of things—smart, sexy, and she can curse like a sailor. But behind her megawatt smile and perfectly pink lips are scars that no one sees. When an inked-up mystery man walks into her dad’s auto shop, Mac’s composed façade begins to waver, and she’s drawn into the arms of a man she can barely stand the sight of. Mostly. Nothing But Trouble is a story of passion and tenderness, Christmas trees and snowball fights. It’s about the true meaning of family and the sacrifices we make for the people we love. 3 - Told You So (Nick and Bethany) Nick’s the whole package—loyal, hardworking, and he’s got a heart-stopping smile that could make any girl swoon. For years, he’s been fighting his feelings for a certain bad girl, but little does he know, Fate has a few surprises in store for him, and Bethany’s only the beginning. Told You So is a story about love’s imperfections and triumphs, about following your heart, especially when it’s not easy, and a testament that everything is better with pickles. 4 - Saratoga Falls Memory Book *Exclusive Content* The Memory Book includes nine short stories told by your favorite characters, which will make you fall in love with the Saratoga crew all over again. Keywords: small-town best friends anthology, workplace forbidden romance, holiday love story, second chance and first love romance, enemies to lovers steamy contemporary romance, complete series

Book Short Summary:

Good hair day? Bad hair day? Hair has always evoked strong emotions. In this fascinating book, Patricia Malcolmson examines how British women over the past 150 years have managed their hair, from the extravagant styles of the late nineteenth century to the ‘anything goes’ attitude of today, taking in along the way the daring bobs of the 1920s, the wartime styles of women in uniform, the slavish copying of Hollywood stars, the beehive, the hippy and the Goth. In Me and My Hair you’ll hear the voices of women from around Britain talking about their hair - whether it’s their longing to have ‘Shirley Temple’ curls, the visits of the nit nurse, their first home perm, roasting under hood dryers, going platinum blonde, hilarious experiments with hair extensions, or fears of going grey.

Book Short Summary:

“In the fifties, sleek Mixmasters were replacing rusty eggbeaters, and new pressure-cookers blew their tops in kitchens all over town. There were kids everywhere, and new ‘ranch-style’ houses filled vacant lots. . . . Turquoise Studebakers and dusty-rose Chevy BelAirs with flamboyant fins and lots of chrome replaced dark pre-war cars. Cameras took color snapshots instead of black-and-white. We wore red canvas tennis shoes and lemon yellow shorts, and bright blue popsicles melted down our chins.” —from the Introduction In Penny Loafers & Bobby Pins, the four Sanvidge sisters, whose birthdates span the Baby Boomer period, present a lively chronicle of growing up in the 1950s and 1960s in a small midwestern town. Each sister writes about the facets of her childhood she remembers best, and their lighthearted stories are illustrated with period photos. Sprinkled with mentions of pedal pushers, home permanents, and “two-tone” cars; early TV shows and the first rock and roll; hula hoops, Tiny Tears, and Mr. Potato Head (played with a real potato); and memories of their grandparents who lived nearby, Penny Loafers & Bobby Pins also features “how-tos” for re-creating the fads, foods, crafts, and games the Sanvidge sisters recall in their stories.

Book Short Summary:

With his beloved Gothic tales, Washington Irving is said to have created the genre of the short story in America. Though Irving crafted many of the most memorable characters in fiction, from Rip Van Winkle to Ichabod Crane, his gifts were not confined to the short story alone. He was also a master of satire, essay, travelogue, and folktale, as evidenced in this classic collection. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, "Every reader has a first book.... which, in early youth, first fascinates his imagination, and at once excites and satisfies the desires of his mind. To me, this first book was The Sketch Book of Washington Irving... The charm of The Sketch Book remains unbroken; the old fascination still lingers about it."

Book Short Summary:

Details for Kismetwali and Other Stories Set against the backdrop of modern-day India, Kismetwali and Other Stories places the reader amidst circumstances that transcend place, purse and prestige. This octet of novellas offers a rare glimpse into the parallel lives of the privileged and penniless, converging on those astonishing moments when free will intercepts fate and the rigid divide between social classes is rendered insignificant. Each narrative showcases walas and walis of the working class—the common yet essential purveyors of goods and providers of service—as empowered individuals who take centre stage.The shavewala, a humble barber, becomes an intimate collaborator in a love story that spans the seven seas; the malishwali, a long-serving masseuse, conceals her mistress’s shocking secret while offering a gift of revelation to another; the kismetwali, a clairvoyant of unremarkable pedigree, solicits cosmic benefaction for her affluent clients. These socially eclipsed characters are the true protagonists in every story. About Reetika Khanna Nijhawan Reetika Khanna Nijhawan was born and raised in a small town in northern India. While growing up, she travelled the world extensively with her father, an officer in the merchant navy. After receiving her degree in Psychology from Delhi University, she worked as a flight attendant with Lufthansa German Airlines before settling down to write for ELLE and ELLE Décor in Mumbai. She later moved to Atlanta, where her work has been published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Khabar magazine. Kismetwali and Other Stories is her first work of fiction. She penned these eight novellas over time, while waiting in the carpool line outside her daughter’s school.

Book Short Summary:

Escape from Athabasca: A Collection of Short Stories and Poems deals with a wide range of themes taken from everyday life. The book describes life as a complex mix of the mundane and the extraordinary. Would it be a big surprise to hear about how someone who has never flown a plane before managing to fly one with great success? While some of the stories and poems in the book deal with domestic issues, others highlight the importance of friendship, risks and dangers in space travel, or even the impact of virtual game shows on young people. Just because we live secure lives far away from conflict zones, it doesnt mean we are shielded from the possibility of a nuclear war. The poems in this book provide a poetical rendition of a world that is sometimes offset by bereavement and, at other times, the comicality of a roadside barber trimming and shaving the hair of his clients, unperturbed by a disturbed world that rushes by.
