Making Scenes

Making Scenes

by Adrienne Eisen

“Making Scenes” is the story of the post-millenium Everywoman making her way through a world where things don’t work out exactly as they’re supposed to. Portions of the novel have been featured in workshops across the United States, Europe and Australia.

From Emily Books: there are a lot of horrifying yet quotidian experiences that fiction rarely depicts. This book is full of them. But its narrator isn’t trying to shock or disgust you, or to provoke your sympathy. She is simply describing: incest, bulimia, pro beach volleyball. We sent this book to our literary hero Chris Kraus because we thought it might be up her alley. She sent this blurb: “What is shocking and most enlivening about Adrienne Eisen’s Making Scenes is not what she reveals, but her attitude towards what she reveals. The book is boundary-breaking not for any transgressive content – and I guess there’s a lot, especially if you consider the bulimia-fest – but because she is aloof from that content. Women are not supposed to do that. Eisen offers a refreshing personal nihilism in stark contrast to repentant Bad Girl sagas. Reading her I thought of Celine (the writer, not Celine Dion) and Camus.”

Excerpt from the book:

MY UNEMPLOYMENT RAN OUT the week before I left for L.A. My dad’s Visa card doesn’t work because it has his signature on the back. I had some money saved, but it’s gone because when I binge, no food is too expensive.

I wait until I’ve lived for two days on six bagels, and then I am hungry enough to get a job at Crate&Barrel-lining up glasses and dishes so that it looks like the Gap. This job is beneath me, but I tell myself it’s part of being a professional volleyball player-I can’t have a real job because I can only work at night…

American Spirit

American Spirit

by Gary E. Casteel

When a barn is raised in the Amish communities of Northern Indiana, we see it. When masses of people try to help a whale dying on a beach in California, it is present. When a child has fallen into an abandoned well in West Texas, the American Spirit becomes clear.
I saw a man with long, graying hair, wearing tattered army fatigues leaning against the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington, crying. I watched a stranger in an expensive business suit walk over to hold and comfort the old soldier. At that very moment, I was witnessing the Spirit that is America.

Vote or Die

Vote or Die

by Kav Zrant

This is a short rant I had on July 28th and 29th, 2012. It’s about my perception of politics in America this summer. This is the way I see it and is meant to be taken only as my Opinion. Some of this uses profanity, some uses rational thought, you decide which is which. Enjoy.

Jack Gant is called in from his South Carolina island home to oversee an investigation involving the abduction of Emily Cranston, daughter of Fort Bragg Special Warfare Center commander Col. Samuel Cranston. The motive for the abduction is revenge, and the perpetrators have been highly trained in how to carry it outâ??by the U.S. government.

Who polices the world of covert operations? Enter the Cellar, the most secret spy organization hiding deep within the United States.

Deep in the forests of Kentucky, a girl is held captive.

In Oklahoma, a young preschool teacher is murdered in front of her students.

In the Panhandle of Florida, a college undergrad is kidnapped from a nightclub.

These seemingly unrelated crimes catch the eye of the Cellar, the ultrasecret cell of operatives set up to police all other government agencies. Cellar operatives Gant and Neeley, along with profiler Susan Golden, must track down those responsible. But these are not ordinary criminals. They are a highly trained Special Forces sniper team. Crisscrossing the United States as new Cellar head Hannah Masterson calls the shots from up high, the Cellar operatives soon find themselves being targeted. Whoever is behind this knows the ultra top-secret Cellar’s tactics all to well.

Underneath this web of death, deceit, and revenge lies an even more shocking crime . . . a conspiracy that powerful men will sacrifice their lives — and the lives of their families — to protect.

by Alex Fonteyn

Adapted from the classic Polish tale, The Dragon under the Hill tells the story of an ancient principality and its inhabitants’ struggle with an uninvited and extremely unwelcome guest!

An evil fire breathing dragon decides to settle in the principality of Prince Krakus, pillaging and plundering the country! Even the prince’s knights encounter much more than they bargained for when they try to defeat the dragon. But that is not all! Worse is to come when the dragon decides that the prince’s daughter, Princess Anna, would make a very tasty meal.

China: Don't go there until...

China: Don’t go there until…

by Rob Walters

If you are thinking of going to China to teach or travel then don’t – not until you have read this book. The book may entice you to go or it may persuade you to stay. Either way if you are interested in China and wish to far beyond the tourist guide view, then read this book.
The author lived in one of the most famous cities in China, yet few in the West have heard of it. He also lived near the epicentre of the most damaging earthquake in recorded history, yet it is long forgotten. China is so big that it hides behind itself so you need a book that takes you beyond the veil: this is that book. It is not a detailed study of the country, yet reveals the heart of the place through insightful revelations.
You will enjoy the accounts of teaching and travelling which are sometimes funny, sometimes sad. You will be surprised and shocked at the descriptions of school life and the life of the poor. You will begin to understand the very real cultural differences between the West and China and learn how to cope with them. You will also learn how to buy beer in Chinese restaurants.
Rob Walters’ book spotlights the fundamental problem facing the foreign teacher in China and provides a solution. It is entertaining and informative and, since it is based on two separate visits, gives a sense of China’s unending paradox: its stability and its ability to cope with rapid change.

Approximately 80,000 words and 10 photos

Discover Ancient Thai Kingdoms: AYUTTHAYA, SUKHOTHAI AND LAMPANG

by Sheila Simkin

It seems like some people work their entire life so they can take an Exotic Vacation, when in reality, such a trip can be had for less than taking the family to DisneyWorld.

Let Travels With Sheila teach you how to Travel the World on a Budget, share exotic locations with you known only to locals, and most importantly, ease your fears about languages, currencies, personal safety and staying healthy.

If this is not your first visit to Thailand. If you’ve been there, and done it all – Bangkok, Chiang Mai, the Golden Triangle, sampled a few of its renowned golden Beaches and Islands – swing by comparatively less-visited Ayutthaya, Sukhothai and Lampang. Mention this to some people and you’ll get a blank stare, “Why would you want to see Historical Cities? What do they have to offer?”

Spending time in Thailand’s Three Ancient, and Historical Cities, is nothing like touring “historical sights” in Europe, i.e. Dry facts, guides spouting…and then so-and-so fought so-and so…and then so-and-so took over so-and so…followed by the great-grand-nephew of so-and so-who then warred on… No, no, and no. Prepare for an easier, gentler immersion into Thai History.

Walk, bicycle or tuk-tuk over acres of peaceful Historical Parks with no motorized traffic….small, gigantic, standing, and reclining Buddhas, serenely gaze down on you…Burmese, Khymer, Lana, and Singhalese-style Temples, Chedis/Stupas and pillars are scattered throughout, remnants of the 800-year old Siamese Kingdom…and quietly hum a few bars from “The King and I, even though the Thai people considered the movie disrespectful. Add the fabulous Bang Pa-in Palace, Wat Phanan Choeng’s Golden Buddha, and House of Many Pillars into your itinerary while making your way north towards Chiang Mai.

Golf's Greatest Players: Arnold Palmer

Golf’s Greatest Players: Arnold Palmer

by Parkway Publishing

* Includes a detailed biography on one of the greatest golfers to play the game
* Includes several pictures
* Includes a table of contents

There are few professional athletes that have made an impact on their sport like Arnold Palmer. Palmer single handedly elevated golf into the worldwide phenomenon it is today. He was the quintessential player who transformed the game from a hobby into an art, and was the complete package of good looks, charisma and charm. The fact that he was the best golfer of his day didn’t hurt either.

Like many other great athletes, Arnold Palmer transcended sports. Today Arnold is a variety of things to many different people: golf immortal, successful golf course designer, prominent businessman and devoted family man. In a world where famous athletes are known for their demonstrative personalities and prima donna attitudes Arnold Palmer was and still is a breath of fresh air.

Despite all of the success, fame and money he is known for his unwavering kindness and affability. It was that approachability and genuineness that propelled him to stardom in the 1950’s and has endeared him to millions of fans all over the world.

We’ll take you through Palmer’s life from the son of a groundskeeper in Latrobe, Pennsylvania to the pinnacle of golf success on the PGA tour as he captures 62 PGA Tour victories including seven major championships. We’ll also take you behind the scenes of his golf business including his golf course design firm and his founding of the Golf Channel.

Palmer’s life on and off the golf course is inspiring. Unlike so many elite athletes, he was able to transition from the game as his body failed him and did it with dignity and honor. He has too many accolades to list – including the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2004. Ask him and he’ll tell you he’s just Arnold Palmer, a kid from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, but to us, he’s “The King.”

Golf's Greatest Players: Jack Nicklaus

Golf’s Greatest Players: Jack Nicklaus

by Parkway Publishing

* Includes an in depth look at the life of Jack Nicklaus
* Includes several picturse
* Includes a table of contents

Jack Nicklaus is more than just a famous name in golf history. While he is most known for his prowess on the golf course, he has also done a lot to promote and further the entire sport. From his award winning golf course designs to his philanthropic work, Jack Nicklaus is truly one of a kind when it comes to generosity and humbleness.

Jack Nicklaus started out golfing as a child for fun and then his hobby led him in to doing it as a full time career. He dominated the course from the time he entered high school until he declared himself a pro and left Ohio State University after three years of studying to become a pharmacist. Jack said he never imagined golf would be a career for him because he loved to play the game so much. However, it worked out well for him as he left school to try and earn money on the golf circuit and earned way more than he ever could have imagined.

Besides setting records on the courses for just about every record ever kept, Nicklaus became a legend off the course as well. He went into business designing golf courses and remains in business with his sons to this day. Many of the PGA major golf tournaments are held at his courses. There are Nicklaus designed courses in many countries around the world, not just the United States.

Besides designing courses, Nicklaus also has a line of golf apparel, three lines of golf clubs, a brand of wine, a golf academy, a real estate division for his golf courses and even a travel agency. They all relate to golf and how a person can enjoy their game better.
