Celestial Bodies in Orbit Book Description :

Eve Littlepage made her living as striptease dancer 'Lisa Doolittle' in the suburbs of Boston for ten years, from the mid-1970s through the mid-80s. Her memoir is about how she fell into this marginalized profession, some of the craziness that happened while she was in it, and how she struggled to find a way out and into a more wholesome life. Littlepage uses a unique vehicle for sharing her story: it is told interview-style to a fictional author named Stella Mars. This unusual method evokes a sense that one is eavesdropping on a very private conversation as Eve shares her secrets with Stella. The story weaves memories of her personal life together with reflections on her stripping career, and shows how the contrasting aspects of the two played off of each other as she evolved and grew through her varied experiences. Though metaphysics is not the main focus, Eve's story is laced with references to the I Ching, ghostly visitations, spiritual epiphanies, and other mystical themes. It may offer hope and inspiration to anyone who has ever felt stuck in a job or relationship that seemed impossible to escape. It is a tale of perseverance, resilience, and hope, sprinkled with humor and insight. One reader called it, ..". a coming-of-age story with more universal appeal than one might expect in a stripper's memoir." It's about choices and the ripple effect they create. It's Eve's 'secret past' - for your entertainment!

The Gateway to Understanding Book Description :

MEET BENJAMIN FRANKLIN FRIDDLE The hero of this narrative is a precocious schoolboy who was given a dictionary by his parents when he was very young. In spite of learning the meaning of many new words, he and Jamie conspired to speak like the young man they idolized who spoke with very bad grammar. This gradually became harder, but they both tried very hard not to sound like a girl. Frankie is persuaded to adopt a different imperative through his teacher, who had more understanding of the boys than they could have supposed. In 1987, the book was written to amuse my mother who seemed to enjoy hearing each episode as it developed. The narrative was rejected by several publishers, so I recorded it on an audio tape, which I gave to my grandchildren. And I made a hard copy, which stayed on a shelf until after I received word from 1stBooks. The interest of my grandchildren interested me. Several parts were extremely funny when read aloud to them. Although it is fiction, it might be useful in persuading readers that the uses of good grammar might be necessary for success in modem society. Recent gaps in SAT scores could easily be society's heritage from an erroneous assumption. No language is likely to equal proper English in the American job market. This book may help readers to realize that bad grammar could limit the perception of academic perfectionists who happen to hear job applicants speak. Please let me know whether I should develop another thing I regard as fact: true wisdom is often overlooked in persons who differ from ourselves.

Glaciers Book Description :

Glaciers unfolds internally, recalling the work of writers such as Jean Rhys, Marguerite Duras, and Virginia Woolf, and portrays how the fleeting moments of one day can reveal an entire life. Isabel is a single, twentysomething thrift-store shopper and collector of remnants, things cast off or left behind by others. Glaciers follows Isabel through a day in her life in which work with damaged books in the basement of a library, unrequited love for the former soldier who fixes her computer, and dreams of the perfect vintage dress move over a backdrop of deteriorating urban architecture and the imminent loss of the glaciers she knew as a young girl in Alaska. Glaciers unfolds internally, the action shaped by Isabel’s sense of history, memory, and place, recalling the work of writers such as Jean Rhys, Marguerite Duras, and Virginia Woolf. For Isabel, the fleeting moments of one day can reveal an entire life. While she contemplates loss and the intricate fissures it creates in our lives, she accumulates the stories—the remnants—of those around her and she begins to tell her own story.
