Road of Ash and Dust Excerpt :

naware that hunger, sickness and deprivation were awaiting him, a young idealist leaves the United States and embarks on a spiritual journey to West Africa. Repeatedly challenged by a world beyond his understanding and thrown into harsh, critical self-reflections, he is repulsed by the image of himself that Africa forces him to confront. Road of Ash and Dust: Awakening of a Soul in Africa is a deeply intimate and, somewhat, voyeuristic unveiling of aspects of The African-American Experience rarely committed to print. ROAD allows you access to one of the most universal rites of passage, the discovery of self. Author E.L. Cyrs channels voices from a distant and muted past, guiding us into understanding that many of the answers to our most troubling questions do, truly, come from within.

The Brain That Changes Itself Excerpt :

“Fascinating. Doidge’s book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain.”—Oliver Sacks, MD, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat What is neuroplasticity? Is it possible to change your brain? Norman Doidge’s inspiring guide to the new brain science explains all of this and more An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable, and proving that it is, in fact, possible to change your brain. Psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity, its healing powers, and the people whose lives they’ve transformed—people whose mental limitations, brain damage or brain trauma were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.

Welcome to The Three Captains. A charming bijou guesthouse on the Maine coast which is a haven of calm for guests and owners alike. When Lolly summons home her nieces, Isabel and June - one recovering from a broken heart, the other struggling to bring up her young son singlehandedly - they assume she's going to sell The 3 Cs, the place they called home after they lost their parents in a car accident. But the truth is much more heartbreaking than that. Along with Lolly's daughter Kat - also at a crossroads in her life - the women spend their first summer together in years and home truths and long-buried secrets begin to emerge. Then movie buff Lolly invites her three offspring to attend her legendary movie nights and what at first seems like a few hours of distraction from their tumultuous lives becomes so much more. What they discover shakes them to the core, brings them together after years of discord, and provides them with the inspiration that they need to truly connect with each other and find happiness.

Washed Out Bridges and Other Disasters Excerpt :

"Humor is wry, partisan, and caustically combative. The satirical eye behind the comic strip Doonesbury, Garry Trudeau is America's most mirthful, cutting chronicler of these times." Esquire "Trudeau has brilliantly vivisected The Bridges of Madison County." New York Daily News Only in the fertile mind of Garry Trudeau would two events look like a cosmic convergence. For one, the Midwest suffered record floods, washing out riverbeds, roads, and rafters. The other? A bestseller chronicling the brief and unlikely love affair between an Iowa farm wife and a renowned photographer. Viola! Trudeau's masterpiece of literary adaptation: The Washed-Out Bridges of Madison County. Boopsie stars in this satirical series, which opens as she hangs out laundry in a farm field swamped waist-high in floodwater. Photographer Robert Kincaid arrives to shoot his photo essay on the washed-out bridges and suddenly Boopsie is in over her head. "His body seems hard, lean, insistent, even though he appears to be over 50!" she thinks. "Look at him move...no, no, a gazelle! No, a dolphin! No, that's not it." This hilarious collection also features other seminatural disasters that befall Trudeau's witty characters. Look in on Duke and Sid, who stage a Colorado avalanche so they can make a killing on the expected movie rights. (Duke waits it out in the tropics and makes it back just in time for the daring rescue.) Or check in with Mark, who discovers--via a dream in which AIDS casualty Andy Lippincott appears to him--that he's gay. Throughout Trudeau's collection, The Washed-Out Bridges of Madison County, the artist's incisive views on current events provide entertainment in its highest--and sharpest--form. From politics to virtual reality to literature, no subject is safe from Trudeau's eagle eye. Everyone will find something in this talented pundit's take on American life.
