The Saddest Music is Me (Series of Charles and Bobby and Everything in Between)

by Max Sparrow

You are about to read a true story. My life is unfolding as I write crafty manuscripts. While many writers say you must escape from your personal matters when writing, I disagree. My life has gone to hell and back. The things I have seen and gone through has made me a very different individual, and it is a difference that should be understood. This read is a fascinating piece that offers you a look into not just a writer’s mind, but into a pit of blackness. If you like happy endings and happy stories, this isn’t for you. This book is for people who want to understand the world, themselves, and others. If you are one of the latter, then this would be a mind-blowing read. There is darkness in the world, and there is light. I believe all we explore is the light when there is also meaning, wisdom, and stories in the darkness.

Notes from the Firehouse: Seventeen Firefighting Stories from a Retired Firefighter

by D.E. McCourt

A memoir from a retired firefighter about firefighting, rescue calls and life around the firehouse.
It’s not all about fire – that’s lesson number one.
No,it’s a collection of things: assisting an injured person at three o’clock in the morning, calming a child in a traumatic situation, saving the belongings of a family from the ravages of a fire, seeing people in every heartbreaking situation imaginable and trying to help them, while not losing yourself in the process.
And it’s about the insanity found in the firehouse – to the author it’s the Cracker Factory – and the politics and pettiness that try unsuccessfully to steal the joy from the job. The book doesn’t dwell on the nuts and bolts of firefighting, as much as it documents the human side of the job.

Vodkaberg: Nine Years in Russia (The Burnout Trilogy Book 2)

by English Teacher X

In the year 2000, English Teacher X moved to the bankrupt, frozen, desolate country of Russia, seeking a quiet life.

Instead, he found himself the center of attention of the gorgeous, sexy, amoral, and abundant female population of the city of Vodkaberg, as one of the few foreign residents there.

At first bewildered and uncomfortable with the attention, he soon grew to love it and found himself settling in for a long stay of girl-chasing and vodka-drinking, and staying much, much longer than he planned.

But as the years pass, Russia begins to change and develop into a fast-growing modern oil superpower, one increasingly nationalistic and hostile to foreign residents.

The lives of the English teachers, however, remain mired in a perpetual adolescence of self-gratification, and as he approaches age 40, English Teacher X’s conflicted emotions about his life begin to come burbling out at strange times and in bizarre ways …

VODKABERG: NINE YEARS IN RUSSIA is a portrait of troubled people in a troubled country during a time of rapid change, and another examination of the darker side of English teaching and life abroad.

WARNING! This book contains rude language and graphic descriptions of all kinds of gross stuff, as well as a general air of apocalyptic hopelessness.

Dead Mom Disease

by Lucy Layne

Dead Mom Disease is the memoir of a girl whose mom died. It’s about her life with a mom, her life without a mom, and the imperfectly perfect balance between her two lives. It’s about the world. It’s about society and culture and the way people treat people. It’s about not saying “I’m sorry” automatically when someone says, “My mom died.” It’s about how condolences don’t come in the form of words from the people who matter, from the people who mean them. They come encased in gut-wrenching tears and embraces that nuclear weapons couldn’t break. It’s about pain and grieving. It’s about life and moving on. But mostly, it’s about death and what that really means.

The Disappearance of Morgan Nick: A collection of True Crime

by Kristin Samantha Morton

An anthology of missing persons headlined by the sad disappearance of Morgan Nick…
Excitement filled the air in Alma, Arkansas on the night of June 9, 1995. A crowd of nearly three hundred surrounded the baseball pitch to watch a little league game on a warm summer night. Cheering could be heard echoing around the town, reaching far from the stadium. In what appeared to be a perfect summer’s evening, spirits were high, with adults chatting jovially and children playing together, making new friends. But for one mother, the midsummer evening would become a living nightmare in an incident she would describe in an interview for Fox News as “pure childhood innocence and such evil that met in [the] same moment.” Her six-year-old daughter disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again.

Serial Homicide 2: Aileen Wuornos, John Wayne Gacy, Dennis Rader, Edward Gein, Jane Toppan, Nannie Doss (Notorious Serial Killers)

by RJ Parker

Serial Killers are hunters that prey upon fellow people. It is not uncommon for them to torture and rape their victims. They are sex offenders, rapists, child molesters, and some are even cannibals. They thrive on their victim’s showing of fear which makes them feel the power of dominance and control.

This is the second book in the ‘Notorious Serial Killers’ series that features three male and three female serial killers. INCLUDES PHOTOS

Included in this volume:

Between 1972 and 1978, John Wayne Gacy killed at least thirty-three boys and men in Illinois, of which, twenty-six bodies/skeletons were buried in the crawl space under his house.

Also known as “Bind, Torture, Kill” because of his methods of killing, Dennis Rader killed ten people in Kansas between 1974 and 1991.

Edward Gein was a body snatcher and serial killer from Wisconsin. He would make items from corpses: lampshades made from facial skin, bowls made out of skulls, wastebaskets made from human skin.

Aileen Wuornos killed seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990. She initially claimed that her victims had raped her while she was working as a prostitute. She later confessed that this wasn’t true.

Between 1895 and 1901, Jane Toppan, a Nurse in Boston, killed at least thirty-one people using mixtures of drugs such as morphine and Atropine. Usually female serial killers murder for profit, Jane killed for sexual gratification.

Nannie Doss was a Black Widow serial killer who killed eleven people including four husbands, two sisters and her mother.

First I Was Naive: What Really Happens When You Quit Your Job and Travel the World to â??Find Yourselfâ??

by Shyrwyn Clemente

A breath-taking personal memoir of one naive girl’s struggle to find her purpose in life, after leaving everything behind in Paris and traveling to Brazil with nothing but a big backpack and extremely high expectations.

Shyrwyn Clemente had it all: a degree in Engineering, a stable, well-paid job in a respected company in Paris, a boyfriend, good friends, and enough money to pay the bills, travel the world, and have fun. But right when she had finally achieved everything she always wanted, that’s when she realized that was not what she wanted after all. Something was missing. She had no idea what it was, but one thing was certain: she would not rest until she figured out what is was.

After much struggle, Shyrwyn built the courage to break free from everything that was holding her stuck to an unfulfilling life: she broke up with her boyfriend, quit her job, and planned a 4-month solo trip in South America, where she would finally be free from the influence of friends and family and would be able to think for herself for the first time in her life, while keeping track of all her experiences, discoveries, and insights in her diary.

In First I Was Naive, Shyrwyn shares with you the pages of her diaries, covering her journey from December 2015 to November 2016. A true, awe-inspiring story that you will not want to stop reading until the end.

“I finished the book a while ago and it was fascinating.” â?? Robert Nicpon, Chicago, USA

“At the end of the book we are rather disappointed that it ends.” â?? Lionel, Paris, France

Organ Donor Handbook: Second Edition

by Buddy Mix

A hundred million Americans have made the decision to become organ donors. The number of those potentially affected by that decision is significantly higher. The loved ones of organ donors are often blindsided by the choice and its consequences. Learn about the important questions you should ask yourself and your family before you take this step.

This was the case for author Buddy Mix, whose wife, River, donated her lungs, heart, liver, and kidneys to five recipients throughout the United States. While mourning his wife, Mix was also struck with the flood of emotions and questions that come with organ donation. He was inspired to share his own personal journey and how his wife’s organ donation affected his life long after she was gone.

Mix takes you through the process of organ donation and explains what will be expected of your family and legal guardian. He raises questions about the ethics of keeping donor bodies on life support for longer than necessary and explores the legal ramifications of the process.

No one can make the personal decision to donate your organs for you, but you need to understand how your choice will affect your loved ones after you are gone.

Tom Hayden on Social Movements: Four unpublished talks and the Rolling Stone interview

by Tom Hayden

“Every now and then, there’s a surge of history in which a group of people has the chance to determine events by taking their lives, their destiny, into their own hands.” Tom Hayden, a central figure in the Vietnam War peace movement, shows what social movements look like from the inside. He spells out why they are intense, complex, exhilarating – and powerful enough to make history. These four unpublished talks and the Rolling Stone interview were all given from 1972 to 1977, while Hayden was still in his thirties and events of that time were still unfolding. This book is full of ideas.

His Shit Don’t Stink: A memoir of delusion, hope, squirrels, LSD, not getting rich quick, OCD, learning to fly, temp labour, that time I couldn’t get it … a friend who can’t smell a goddamn thing

by Magus Beales

Why read this book? That’s an important question.
The picture of the golden poo on the cover should have already convinced you this is a literary masterpiece. But, just in case it hasn’t, let me leave you with this.
Within these 12 stories, lies something magical. I’m not referring to the acid trip, and the squirrel doesn’t perform any tricks. And no, I didn’t give LSD to a squirrel (that would be wrong). Those are two separate stories.
Finding the humour in the stupidest things I’ve done and the most difficult experiences I’ve had. That’s where the secret sauce is.
I freely share this sauce with you.
And isn’t that what this is all about? I will take your laughter over a Pulitzer Prize any day. Not that I wouldn’t take both. I’m just hedging my bets here.

The Queen of Everything: A Memoir

by Sonya Braverman

“I was ten years old and two sheets to the wind,” writes the author of this debut memoir. A child who loved whiskey sours led to an alcohol addiction with an unremitting stranglehold on her life, a grip that persisted for decades, shadowing the joys and exacerbating the tragedies of her turbulent life.

While leading the reader on her journey of self-discovery and healing, the author describes the soul-crushing and relationship-destroying power of addiction, depression and family dysfunction with raw emotion and spirited humor.

In her dramatic struggle towards recovery, the author describes years of her own inadequate parenting, a broken marriage, and coping with her beloved second husband’s battle with psychosis and Alzheimer’s Disease. With his help, a Holocaust survivor, she is finally able to free herself from the demons of her past.

The Queen of Everything: A Memoir is an uncensored and fearlessly written chronicle of a world shaped by alcohol, depression, impaired relationships, and a family riddled with mental illness.

With that gut-wrenching odyssey behind her, the author sums up her success at letting go in the final sentence of the book: “In one sense, the past is behind me; in another, it’s right where it’s always been â?? it’s just that the view from where I’m sitting now is much different.”

As one critic states, “The author has the extraordinary ability to make the reader experience whatever she feels. Her story is shocking, tender, true, and often humorous. You won’t be able to put it down.”

Through the Dark Labyrinth: A Biography of Lawrence Durrell

by Gordon Bowker

When Durrell came into the room it was as though someone had uncorked a bottle of vintage champagne,’ said a friend.

But there was a dark cruel side to the bubbling Durrell and this brilliantly creative writer’s life was indeed labyrinthine.

Born in India, schooled under Mount Everest, where Tibetan lamas trekked to and fro, he lived thereafter in a Tibet of the mind. Expelled from this paradise to school in gloomy England (his â??Pudding Island’), he fled into exile, spending his most productive years in Greece and around the Mediterranean.

In wartime Egypt he conceived â??The Alexandria Quartet‘, which brought fame with its â??exploration of modern love’ and experimental form. His great last novel cycle, â??The Avignon Quintet‘, has intrigued readers ever since with its formal complexity and compelling mystery.

Married four times, he lost two daughters (through separation and suicide) and his most blissful marriage ended in his wife’s sudden death. Wine and sun inspired him; sex and madness obsessed him as sources of creativity. These things mark his work, showing a dark side to the effervescent wit evident in his writing.

Posthumous charges of incest cast a shadow over his memory, but nothing can detract from the scope and brilliance of his achievement.

Praise for Gordon Bowker

‘Bowker is a shrewd judge of character and has substantial storytelling flair. He effortlessly weaves biography and criticism together into a discerning wholeâ?¦.A noteworthy success that meets the highest standard of literary biography.’ – Kirkus

â??Fascinating: it is faithful to the work of its subject, and endorses his eminent place in literature; and it manages to make Durrell the man greater than his unkind and unloving heart.’ – Sunday Independent

Gordon Bowker was born in Birmingham, where he attended King Edward’s Grammar School, Camp Hill. He went on to study at university in both Nottingham and London before teaching sociology at Goldsmith’s College, London, from 1966 to 1991. He spent six years teaching courses in biography, and also worked as a reviewer and critic for several newspapers. His works include â??Pursued by Furies: A Biography of Malcolm Lowry‘, as well as biographies of George Orwell and James Joyce.

The Other Side of the Moon: The Life of David Niven

by Sheridan Morley

â??A highly readable work â?¦ Niven emerges as gallant and gracious.’ Chicago Tribune

Sheridan Morley wrote this biography of the consummate on-screen English gentleman after speaking to over 150 of Niven’s friends and colleagues (only Rex Harrison refused). The result is a picture which both supports and contradicts the charming vagabond persona depicted in Niven’s own bestselling memoirs.

While millions throughout his life were enchanted by Niven’s happy-go-lucky charisma and world-class anecdotage, he was in many respects a private figure, haunted by a fear of failure, and a victim of several key tragedies in his personal life. Morley’s biography is a warm, appreciative but perceptive account which captures both sides of one of Hollywood’s most enduringly lovable figures.

â??A compassionate account that goes past the blithe persona â?¦ yet, there is much humorâ??the actor’s and his biographer’sâ??in this notable book’ Publishers Weekly

â??Head and shoulders above the average showbiz biography â?¦ He understands many of Niven’s deeper feelings’ John Mortimer, Sunday Times

â??A well-told story â?¦ the darker side as well as the mask of a complex and perhaps desperate character. He was a life-enhancer off-screen as well as on’ The Times

â??Shrewd and pleasing; shows how dark Niven’s moon could be’ Alexander Walker, Evening Standard

The College Farm Mystery: The True Story of the Finchley Murder of 1898

by Danny Adams

An intriguing true crime story set in Victorian England

On a dark winter’s night in January 1898, the head cowman at the Express Dairy Company’s College Farm was shot dead. The picturesque dairy farm located on Regent’s Park Road in Finchley provided the unlikely crime scene. The victim, Thomas Webb had no known enemies but eerily had predicted the shocking event.

Chief Inspector Henry Moore, one of Scotland Yard’s most experienced detectives, was assigned the difficult task of unravelling the mystery of the “Finchley Murder”. Previously he had led the investigation into the Whitechapel murders and had failed to identify “Jack the Ripper”. Approaching his retirement did he succeed in bringing Thomas’s killer to justice?

The Miracle of a Lifetime

by Josiah Marshall

“It is after midnight. I walk the streets of my home town. Snow covers the ground and ice crunches under my feet. My direction is south. Not sure where I am going but that doesn’t matter.”

The following story is about how God took my failures and made them His successes. From a fatal suicide attempt to failed relationships, my story is one of grace and mercy. And how God not only redeemed my life, relationships with my family and with Jesus Christ, but also restored my mind from severe Bipolarism, Borderline Personality Disorder and Pre-schizophrenia.

~ Philippians 2:1-12; Psalms 119:68 ~

Girls Gone Bad: A collection of True Crime

by Amanda Robbins

A True Crime anthology centered around young women behaving badly…On April 23, 2006 a small town was rocked to its very foundation with the discovery of a gruesome triple murder. An entire family was found stabbed to death in their home that day. The bodies were discovered by the eight-year old boy’s best friend when he arrived at the house to get his friend. Debra Richardson, 48 and her husband Marc, 42 were found in the basement with multiple stab wounds covering their bodies and upon further investigation their son would be found murdered. Such a horrific scene was left behind that the police responding would be affected long after the investigation. But the person responsible would be the most unlikely killer of all.

Parole per Cesare: con l’ultima intervista inedita di Stefano Lorenzetto (Italian Edition)

by Stefano Lorenzetto

Un libro da scaricare gratuitamente per ricordare Cesare De Michelis, scomparso il 10 agosto 2018.

“Parole per Cesare” raccoglie messaggi, lettere, articoli ricevuti o pubblicati degli amici del presidente di Marsilio Editori, che nei giorni successivi alla sua scomparsa ne hanno voluto ricordare la passione per i libri, l’impegno in campo culturale e civile. Condividiamo con i lettori questi affettuosi ricordi e l’intervista inedita di Stefano Lorenzetto che chiude il libro.

Cesare De Michelis è nato a Dolo (Venezia) il 19 agosto 1943. Dopo la laurea con lode in Letteratura italiana nel 1965, entra nel Consiglio d’amministrazione di Marsilio, divenendone successivamente presidente, carica che ricopre fino alla sua morte il 10 agosto 2018.
