The Five Points is personal to me. In 1914, my mother, the youngest of 12 children, was born at 104 Bayard Street. When I grew up, I lived around the corner at 134 White Street. During my youth, the area was called Little Italy. But at the time of my mother’s birth, it was still called the Five Points.

The term “Five Points” was coined in the early part of the nineteenth century because the area had at its center a five-point intersection formed by Orange Street (now Baxter Street), Cross Street (then Park and now Mosco Street – Frank Mosco was my Little League coach), Anthony Street (Now Worth), Little Water Street (which no longer exists), and Mulberry Street.

Across the street from the front entrance to my White Street tenement building, and close enough to reach with three or four leaping bounds, was the imposing city prison called the Tombs. The dark and dreary structure was the third incarnation of a major jailhouse in this area, the first two being located one block to the west on Center Street. The Tombs played an integral part of the Five Points’ sordid history. Hundreds of dastardly individuals were hung at the Tombs, and hundreds of thousands more had the Tombs as their mailing address, some permanently.

In 1896, at the prodding of journalist Jacob Riis, the hideous Mulberry Bend was demolished by the city, and Columbus Park was built in its stead. Before then, the Five Points was predominantly Irish, and it is estimated that 10,000 – 15,000 people, mostly Irish, lived in horrendous squalor in the four square blocks that of “The Bend.” When the Bend’s buildings were razed, the Irish were displaced. Most moved north to Hell’s Kitchen, the area bounded by 42nd Street and 59th Streets, between 7th and 12th Avenues.

After the demolition of Mulberry Bend, the Five Points became the domain of Italian immigrants sprinkled with a few hundred Chinese, who claimed parts of Mott, Pell, and Doyers Streets as their turf. In fact, over the first two decades of the twentieth century, the Five Points district evolved into two intertwining ethnic neighborhoods: Little Italy and Chinatown. It wasn’t until the mid-1920s that the term “Five Points” started to fade from the vocabulary of the area’s residents.

Most remnants of the original Five Points are long gone. But the names of its former inhabitants still flicker across the lips of many New Yorkers, never in a flattering way.

So, fire up your Kindle and read about some of the most distasteful creatures ever to roam the face of the earth. They all inhabited my old Five Points neighborhood in times gone by.

Spiel in verbotenen Gärten: 7 Jahre Erotik und eine Lebenserfahrung (Erotische Erzählungen 1) (German Edition)

by Thomas Iris

Diese Geschichte ist es einfach Wert erzählt zu werden. Und zwar aus IHRER Perspektive. Sie hat mir in 7 Jahren viel über geheimen weiblichen Sex und verbotene Erotikwünsche gelehrt. Bevor ich sie getroffen habe, hatte ich über Grenzen gehende Liebesspiele wie in der â??Geschichte der O” von Pauline Réage für pure Phantasie gehalten. Es ist schlieÃ?lich nicht alltäglich, alle Facetten der Verführung und Hingabe in grenzenloser Freiheit zu erleben. Wir haben das getan. Aber unsere Geheimnisse hatten einen Preis. Dennoch bereue ich keine Sekunde. Ich glaube, sie auch nicht.

Sie hat immer gesagt, dass Fifty Shades of Grey und Calendar Girl unsere Geschichte nicht in den Schatten stellen könnten. Aus diesem Grund ist dieses Buch entstanden. Sie verdient es.

My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker (The Heroine’s Journey Book 1)

by Melissa Burch

“My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker” is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahideen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush.

“My Journey Through War and Peace” examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace. This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of “Eat Pray Love,” “Wild,” and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys.

El Presidente Barack Obama: Entrevista Kindle Singles (Spanish Edition)

by David Blum

En esta entrevista para Kindle Singles, el presidente Barack Obama nos habló sobre el “cambio de cultura” que ha modificado la visión del sueño americano. En el pasado “los jóvenes no estaban tan sumamente expuestos al estilo de vida de ricos y famosos”, afirmó el presidente. “Ni estaban constantemente pendientes del vestuario de Kim Kardashian, ni de dónde veranea Kanye West, ni asociaban estas banalidades con el éxito”. Obama abordó la cuestión de empleo desde una perspectiva personal que lo llevó a reflexionar sobre cuán diferente habría sido su vida si no hubiera tenido éxito en política. “Me imagino a mí mismo como un buen profesor” declaró Obama durante la entrevista.

En la entrevista, que tuvo lugar el 30 de julio de 2013 en un centro de Amazon en Chattanooga, Tennessee, Obama habló de la creciente necesidad de desarrollar programas gubernamentales que resulten en cambios positivos para la sociedad. Fiel a su mensaje habitual, se sinceró sobre la creciente polarización de la política estadounidense desde la Gran Recesión, y de la intransigencia que ha mostrado el partido republicano hacia su plan de gobierno. También hubo tiempo para las reflexiones personales y mencionó que la primera dama y él recuerdan constantemente a sus hijas que “viven en un entorno ligeramente irreal” ya que son unas niñas privilegiadas en un mundo azotado por el desempleo y la recesión.

La entrevista fue realizada por David Blum, que trabaja para Amazon como editor del sello Kindle Singles. Blum empezó su carrera como periodista para The Wall Street Journal, y ha sido redactor jefe de The Village Voice, New York Press y 02138 Magazine. Anteriormente trabajó como periodista y redactor de The New York Times Magazine, y fue redactor de las revistas New York y Esquire. Bloom ha escrito dos libros: Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant (1992), y Tick…Tick…Tick…: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes (2004). Bloom es licenciado en Literatura Inglesa en la Universidad de Chicago.

18 mois chez les militaires: L’histoire d’un antimilitariste anarchiste (French Edition)

by Christian CRANCEE

Et si le service militaire redevenait obligatoire ? Depuis quelques mois, nos autorités politiques souhaitent généraliser et promouvoir le service civique. Certains veulent même qu’il devienne obligatoire. C’est justement quand des choix d’avenir sont en jeu, qu’il est bon de faire un petit retour en arrière et de profiter du vécu des anciens.

Ce récit surprendra la plupart des lecteurs, d’autres ne croiront pas ce qui est écrit et diront que c’est exagéré ou romancé. Connaissant bien l’auteur (mon père), je n’ai aucun doute sur la véracité des faits rapportés. En publiant ce livre nous retrouveront peut-être des témoins de ces évènements passés.

Mais pour moi c’est plus qu’une biographie. Je dirais que c’est une leçon de vie et j’espère que certains y trouveront une source d’inspiration.

Diario di viaggio (Italian Edition)

by Naike J. Wires

Diario di viaggio è una silloge poetica nata da riflessioni e sfoghi quotidiani, sulla vita, sui suoi ostacoli e sulle scelte alle quali ci sottopone . Ogni poesia racchiusa in questo libro ha un suo colore, un suo sapore ben preciso ed è il frutto di uno stato d’animo scaturito da un avvenimento che ha coinvolto me o persone a me care e che in qualche modo ha condizionato il mio divenire, la mia percezione delle cose e il mio reagire alle varie sollecitazioni in positivo o negativo che sia. I temi trattati sono principalmente l’incertezza, la delusione, l’amore, la morte, l’abbandono, la sete di giustizia. Molti dei componimenti sono stati scritti in un periodo delicato per ogni essere umano, il passaggio dall’adolescenza all’età adulta e nell’ opera questa nuova consapevolezza di se che si fa avanti, viene scandita in maniera netta. La scelta di intitolare la raccolta, Diario di viaggio, nasce dal pensiero che ogni ode contenuta nel testo, pur avendo vita propria, non è altro che un infinito frammento della mia anima, di quel complesso tutto che sono io.



4 + 3: Die Serienmorde von Rosenheim (German Edition)

by Franz Von Falkenstein

Im oberbayrischen Rosenheim gilt es eine mysteriöse Mordserie an Frauen aufzuklären, denn der Täter hinterlä�t merkwürdige lyrische Gedichte. Ein klassischer Krimi, dessen Handlungsverlauf einem üblichen Schema folgt. Es wird aus der Sicht der Ermittelnden geschildert, die allmählich dem Täter auf die Spur kommen. Diese althergebrachte Art ist durchaus etwas Besonderes für meinen Stil, da meine anderen Werke unkonventionellere Handlungsmotive aufgreifen, auch was die Erzählperspektive angeht.

Zeitlich spielt das Ganze während der legendären WM 2006 und deshalb ist das natürlich auch ein Thema – wen interessieren schon ein Paar Morde nebenher, wenn Deutschland vielleicht Weltmeister wird?

Presidente Barack Obama: Entrevista Kindle Singles (Portuguese Edition)

by David Blum

Nesta Entrevista Kindle Singles, o Presidente dos Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, criticou a “mudança de cultura” que alterou nossa visão do Sonho Americano. “Antigamente, não tínhamos como acompanhar o estilo de vida dos ricos e famosos”, disse o Presidente. “As crianças não monitoravam todos os dias o que Kim Kardashian estava vestindo e onde Kanye West passava as férias, e nem pensavam que, de alguma forma, isso era a marca do sucesso.” Ele falou sobre a questão do trabalho de uma perspectiva pessoal, refletindo sobre como sua própria vida poderia ter sido diferente se não tivesse sido bem-sucedido na política. “Eu consigo me ver como um bom professor”, disse ele descontraidamente.

Na entrevista, realizada em 30 de julho de 2013, nas instalações da Amazon em Chattanooga, Tennessee, Obama discutiu a crescente necessidade de programas governamentais que possam realmente fazer a diferença. Mantendo-se fiel à sua mensagem padrão, ele falou abertamente sobre a crescente polarização da política dos Estados Unidos desde a Grande Recessão e da intransigência do Partido Republicano com a agenda do Presidente. Em um tom pessoal, refletiu que ele e a primeira-dama Michelle Obama relembram constantemente às filhas do “ambiente ligeiramente surreal em que vivem”, pois são crianças privilegiadas em um mundo coagido pelo desemprego e pela recessão.

A entrevista foi conduzida por David Blum, que trabalha na Amazon como editor do Kindle Singles. Ele iniciou a carreira como repórter do The Wall Street Journal e foi o editor-chefe do The Village Voice, do New York Press e da 02138 Magazine. Antes disso, foi escritor e editor na The New York Times Magazine e editor convidado das revistas New York e Esquire. Tem dois livros publicados, Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant (1992) e Tick…Tick…Tick…: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes (2004), e diploma de bacharel em literatura inglesa pela Universidade de Chicago.

Out of Step: A Dancer Reflects

by Alida Belair

“You have a child prodigy, Mrs Glasbeek.” With these words Madame Xenia Borovansky proclaimed that Alida Belair was destined for ballet greatness. Three years later, at the age of eleven, Alida became a child star in her role as Clara in the Borovansky Ballet’s production of the Nutcracker Suite.

 

Out of Step traces the extraordinary story of Alida Belair’s ascent to the summit of the international ballet world, her striving to develop artistically and personally despite that world’s tight constraints, and her struggle with anorexia.

 

Alida Belair was born in South West France, where her family was being hidden from the Nazis. She came to Australia in 1949, and at a young age was discovered by the Borovanskys who recognized her prodigious and precocious talent. In her late teens, she was discovered anew, this time by the Bolshoi which invited her to study at its school in Moscow. When her studies were cut short by the Cuban Missile Crisis, her passion and her talent saw her travel west to dance leading roles in London, New York and Washington-and to work with Marie Rambert, Rudolf Nureyev, George Balanchine, and other greats. Then, in her late twenties, self-starvation, isolation, and exhaustion called her career to a halt. 

 

In Out of Step, Alida Belair tells of her battle to reconcile her demanding and exhilarating art with her emotional needs and intellectual development, and of her eventual emergence as an adult into the world outside the cloisters of the ballet which she had entered as a child. 

Praise for Out of Step:

“One of the most absorbing autobiographical narratives of the year” – Peter Ross, ABC Television (Australia)

“A warm and intelligent recounting of a dancer’s life, by a warm, intelligent and highly articulate dancer. Every dancer who reads it will find a bit of herself threaded through its pages. It embraces not only the passions, but also the problems of the journey to the top and is therefore both an inspiration and cautionary tale” – Dame Margaret Scott.

“Unusually honest…An engrossing, splendidly written autobiography” – Pamela Ruskin, Dance Australia.

“Belair presents an engrossing image of the 1950s and 1960s, beginning with the pioneering Borovansky Ballet in Australia, where she grew up, the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Walter Gore’s London Ballet, Ballet Rambert and finally the National Ballet of Washington and American Ballet Theatre.” – Doris Hering, Dance Magazine, USA.

“Absorbing, moving and entertaining, not only for dance lovers” – Peter Kohn, Australian Jewish News.
