Book Summary:

An award-winning biography of one of the greats. Simon Leys is the pen-name of Pierre Ryckmans, who was born in Belgium and settled in Australia in 1970. He taught Chinese literature at the Australian National University and was Professor of Chinese Studies at the University of Sydney from 1987 to 1993. He died in 2014. Writing in three languages – French, Chinese and English – he played an important political role in revealing the true nature of the Cultural Revolution. His writing on China and on varied literary and cultural topics appeared regularly in the New York Review of Books, Le Monde, Le Figaro Littéraire, Quadrant and the Monthly, and his books include The Hall of Uselessness, The Death of Napoleon, Other People’s Thoughts and The Wreck of the Batavia & Prosper.

This substantial biography – recently published by Gallimard in France to wide acclaim and winning an award from the Académie Francaise – draws on extensive correspondence with Ryckmans, as well as his unpublished writings. It has been translated by an internationally renowned French translator Julie Rose (based in Sydney).

Book Summary:

As I wake, the worlds collide, melting into one another. Reality gives way to alternatives, one narrative ends; beginning another. Sleeping; dreams left behind, giving way to waking dreams. Real giving in to the surreal, the story in another form. While waking I am not sure where I am, living within and between worlds. As yet unfocused and unsure; I am awake nonetheless. Is it all just one? Is it the same story? When awake; how will I know when I’m awake? Is this real or that? Can I turn the page, burn it to a new age? The world seems both logical and irrational at the same time. This simultaneous mixture of real and unreal, rational and irrational, creates quite a sensation and conjures an eerie ambiguity. Dreams seem to be a loosening of the psychological reins, which tend to remain taut throughout the day. The brain chemistry of the sleeping mind is different to that of the waking mind, which may in part account for some of the odd and mysterious symbols that show up. How fragile is this difference within dream life and waking life? Many have posed the question are we all living in a dream world where the unconscious secretly dictates our every thought? Are we asleep or are we awake? Does it have to be one or the other? Are these truly separate states? Ambiguity makes it possible for humans to ponder many interpretations of a single thing, an event or experience, constantly fascinated with alternating states of thought.

The Flowers of Evil

Book Summary:

The Flowers of Evil, which T. S. Eliot called the greatest example of modern poetry in any language, shocked the literary world of nineteenth century France with its outspoken portrayal of lesbian love, its linking sexuality and death, its unremitting irony, and its unflinching celebration of the seamy side of urban life. The volume was seized by the police, and Baudelaire and his published were put on trial for offence to public decency. Six offending poems were banned, in a conviction that was not overturned until 1949. This bold new translation, which restores the banned poems to their original places and reveals the full richness and variety of the collection, makes available to English speakers a powerful and original version of the world. Jonathan Culler's Introduction outlines this vision, stressing that Baudelaire is more than just the poet of the modern city. Originally to be called `The Lesbians', The Flowers of Evil contains the most extraordinary body of love poetry. The poems also pose the question of the role of evil in our lives, of whether there are not external forces working to frustrate human plans and to enlist men and women on appalling or stultifying scenarios not of their own making. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Book Summary:

Many scholars and practitioners recognize the resonance between the practice of psychotherapy and supervision and the paradoxical principles found throughout Taoism. This is evermore true within the existential-humanistic tradition. Therefore, Lighting the Candle, Taoist Principles in Supervision Conducted from an Existential-Humanistic Perspective introduces readers to the selected writing of the Taoist sages Lao Tzu and Zhuangzi, and considers how their wisdom permeates psychotherapy and supervision practiced from an existential-humanistic perspective. The book takes on a narrative format where the author weaves the following Taoist and existential-humanistic concepts within a number of inspirational stories and supervision case examples gathered across his trainings throughout Southeast Asia. These include wu wei, authenticity, focusing, surrender, trusting the process (trusting the Tao), getting back to the basics, steadiness and the midst of chaos, listening for the unheard, being fully present, humility and awe, bearing witness, following the flow, letting go (of goals, results and techniques), stillness and going nowhere, poetic reflection, and servant leadership. An apprenticeship model of embodied learning is presented in narrative format where the author weaves the above concepts into the supervision process.

Book Summary:

This volume is the first English translation and annotation of the sermons of António Vieira, a major cultural figure in the Portuguese-speaking world. Born in Lisbon in 1608, Vieira was a Jesuit who lived and worked in both Europe and Brazil in the service of the church and the Portuguese crown. His sermons are among the most renowned pieces of baroque oratory in the Portuguese language. These carefully selected sermons offer insight into Vieira's visionary thought on social and spiritual matters. In the Sermon for the Success of Portuguese Arms against the Dutch, Vieira inveighs against God for His apparent abandonment of the Portuguese and begs for divine intervention. His Sermon of St. Anthony is an allegory that addresses the inequities that he witnessed in Brazil. The Sexagesima Sermon parodies literary clichés from his time while prescribing a more effective, if harsher, style of preaching. The Sermon of the Good Thief is a rebuke to the imperial officials who used their positions for personal enrichment, and a warning to kings against complicity with corruption. Vieira's Sermon XXVII addresses African slaves and their Brazilian masters, attempting to comfort the first group in their trials and to admonish the second for their brutality. Finally, the Sermon called Arm tells the story of the relic of Francis Xavier's arm sent from India to Italy in 1614, and pays tribute to the obedience of Vieira's Jesuit predecessor.

Book Summary:

In this conclusion to the Regency-era fantasy trilogy Kirkus Reviews calls “enjoyable mayhem,” Kat is tasked with saving her family, the Order of the Guardians, and England itself. There is nothing in nineteenth-century England quite so improper as magic. With just days to go before her sister Angeline’s long-delayed wedding to Frederick Carlyle, the impetuous Kat Stephenson has resigned herself to good behavior. But Kat’s initiation into the magical Order of the Guardians is fast approaching, and trouble seems to follow her everywhere. First, Kat must contend with the wretched Mrs. Carlyle’s attempts to humiliate her sister; the arrival of the mysterious Marquise de Valmont, who bears suspicious resemblance to Kat’s late mother; and Frederick’s bewitching cousin Jane, who has Charles Stephenson tripping over his feet. But when a menacing boy with powerful magic starts hunting Kat, a dastardly villain tries to kill Angeline, and the Guardians face a magical robbery that could spell the end of their Order, propriety becomes the least of Kat’s concerns. Can Kat save her sister’s life, the Order of the Guardians, and England itself before it’s too late?

Book Summary:

The extraordinary stories of the children interned by the Japanese during the Second World War. When the Japanese entered the war in 1941, some 20,000 British civilians in the European colonies in Asia were rounded up and marched off to concentration camps where they were to remain for three long years. Over 3,000 of them were children. This is the first time their extraordinary experiences of suffering, endurance and bravery have been collected together. STOLEN CHILDHOODS offers a window to a forgotten era and explores what happened when that world was brutally and suddenly shattered. Living on what effectively became the frontline of a war, in daily contact with an enemy whose values were totally alien, they witnessed acts of shocking violence. Harrowing, but ultimately uplifting, internment from a child's perspective is a complex - and untold - story. It is a story that features horror, suffering and self-sacrifice, but also celebrates the resilience, adaptability and irrepressibility of the human spirit.

Book Summary:

It isn’t often that a visitor from outer space gets stranded on Earth, but it happens every so often. When it does, it’s an accident. No one intends to get stranded anywhere, after all. This visitor is female, a botanist, and a telepath. The alien carries a Small Gray environmental suit with her. She is looking for plants that can be grown on her own planet’s severely depleted ecosystem. The alien has just uprooted one when she finds herself stuck on Earth during a planet-wide pandemic. It is a spring day when Arielle, an author and editor-for-hire, spends her morning as she usually does: writing, editing, blogging, drinking coffee, and sitting with her cat while looking out the back windows into her yard. She gets up to stretch and takes a walk around her beautiful garden to enjoy some sunshine, smell a few iris blossoms, and survey her berries and herbs. Suddenly, she sees something under her honeysuckle bush. At first, she thinks it is discarded, plastic litter that has blown around the area, and she picks it up in disgust, only to see that it is gray, as light as a feather, and definitely not plastic. It has a face, or rather, a face-covering. Arielle glances up to find herself face-to-face with a stranded visitor – the owner of the suit she is holding. She takes her in…after her husband, a scientist, tests them both for the virus. The tests come back negative, of course. The aliens, anticipating microbes that are not endemic to their own world, have immunized themselves against Earth’s pathogens before venturing out of their ship. Find out what happens next, and what the Small Gray Visitor said while she was here.

Book Summary:

The bees are in terrible trouble. They need a good lawyer – one who is on their side. Once upon a time, there was a beautiful country called Oblivion. It had everything growing in it to make its people happy and healthy: raspberries, almonds, peaches, apricots, blueberries, cranberries, lavender, thyme, irises, roses, tulips, daffodils…the list seemed endless. But it did end, because some of the Thieves of Oblivion wanted to sell all of these wonderful things, and to force Nature to produce more and more and more of them. These Thieves, running a corporation called BearGenics, had a conflict of interest with Nature. They tampered with the genetics of crop plants. They never gave a thought to the fact that without honey bees, none of these plants would grow. The Thieves poisoned the plants, and in so doing, poisoned the honey bees. That’s what happens when you leave the bear guarding the beehive. This story is a companion to The Book of Thieves, which describes the Banksters of Oblivion, and how they destroyed the financial security of that country.

Book Summary:

Elephant’s Kitchen – An Aspergirl's Study in Difference is about a quiet teenage girl named Delphine who has Asperger’s, but just as with the television shows Bones and The Big Bang Theory, the condition is never mentioned. Instead, the story walks the reader through many of the markers of the condition. The story also addresses the misery associated with poverty when it comes face-to-face with the “haves” of society and their obliviousness and callousness towards those who are struggling to survive. Viewed by a teenage girl who volunteers at a church’s charity kitchen, it highlights the damage that such insensitivity can inflict upon the very people that such institutions claim to benefit. This is just part of the backdrop of the story; Delphine also attends a private school, plays the violin, acts in a play, and deals with bullies. She is quiet, stealthy, and effective in her own way. This story was written to inspire teens with Asperger’s, to show them that there is nothing wrong or bad about them, and to celebrate rather than condemn difference.

Book Summary:

An American Woman in Kuwait is a travelogue written by an American lawyer who accompanied her husband, a Ph.D. immunologist, to Kuwait. The trip spanned almost six months, during the cooler parts of the year, from November 2004 to May 2005. Kuwait is a tiny nation covered almost entirely by barren desert. Its huge petroleum reserves and strategic location have made it a playing field on which great military conflicts have been settled during the past two decades. The country, located at the northern end of the Persian Gulf, became one of the wealthiest nations in history following discovery of oil in 1938 and development of the oil fields brought its citizens an unparalleled level of personal comfort. The author lived among Kuwaitis, ate traditional foods, mingled with Kuwaitis, studied Kuwaiti history, visited most of its museums, and spent a weekend with her husband at the Wafra Farms Oasis as Kuwaitis celebrated their Independence and Liberation Day holidays. She was even lucky enough to meet Kuwait’s most famous woman suffragist, Rola A. Al-Dashti, Ph.D. Stephanie made friends with Kuwaitis. She and her husband met people from Kuwait’s large community of expatriates – Egyptians, Turks, Syrians, and even one man from Saudi Arabia, which led to a hilarious encounter. Their cat, Scheherazade, a Kuwaiti war veteran herself, accompanied Stephanie to Kuwait. An American Woman in Kuwait is also the perfect guide for anyone traveling with a pet in the Islamic world. The book includes a glossary of Arabic words with a bibliography of the books and articles she read while in Kuwait.

Book Summary:

Nae-Née is a dystopian science fiction story. It is a cautionary tale of a loss of liberty along with our ecosystem. It takes place in the present. Nae-Née posits a world not unlike our own, as it confronts the major taboo of our time: the conflict between human overpopulation and the human desire to pass on one’s DNA and culture, and to rest assured that the next generation will care for the previous one and continue all that matters to it. Our planet’s ecosystem is being stressed past capacity to the brink of collapse due to biodiversity loss, rising sea levels, floods, droughts, overdependence on fossil fuels, and the climate changes that drive all that. In short, the human species is in dire trouble due to overpopulation – its own. No one seems remotely inclined to sacrifice any comfort or control over their habits in order to save the environment and ultimately their own future existence, happiness or sense of purpose. But there is a significant difference: nanite technology has advanced sufficiently to be of actual, practical use to physicians and scientists. Nae-Née is a safe, reliable, user-friendly form of birth control. It is a microscopic device made of nanites – little robots. It contains a life-time supply of super-concentrated RU486, which the device releases whenever it detects a rise in hormones that indicates a fertilized embryo is about to implant itself. All that the inventors – a husband-and-wife team – wanted was a convenient device that would prevent pregnancy every time without constantly pumping a woman’s body full of artificial hormones. Its name literally translates as “not born” and was chosen by Avril, the wife, to reflect her husband’s Scottish background and her own French ancestry. The story is told from Avril's point of view, a woman with Asperger's and a professor of women's medical history. The world’s leaders have decided to make it the duty of every human being to participate in a bold new world policy, and they have drafted a treaty at the United Nations, and every nation has agreed to sign onto it. This is done on a date that doom-sayers have anticipated with predictions of various – and often unrelated – dire consequences: December 21, 2012. Under the terms of the treaty, all women must have a government-registered Nae-Née device. Henceforth, every birth of any new human being must be licensed, and not everyone who wants a license to reproduce shall be granted one.

Book Summary:

The world of Nae-Née has undergone a tremendous change. 6.8 billion human beings were Culled within the space of a year. Human beings – each one unique, many talented – have been erased. The world has rebuilt itself, adjusting to the new reality of the damage wrought by human overpopulation and resource depletion. Most of the world is underwater, and a new order has been imposed with the old. The old world order includes universal use of Nae-Née, the nanite birth control device, continues. Anyone wishing to reproduce must still get a license to do so. No license will be granted before a death has been recorded. However, thanks to Hamish’s Regenics serum, some people are living extended lifespans, so fewer births are to be authorized. Avril continues to be concerned by what she knows about the past year. The Cull was not a natural plague: it was genocide. The Farmers of the world – elites with access to the bulk of financial and other wealth – orchestrated the Cull. They are banksters, hedge fundsters, and corporatists. It is Avril who has dubbed them “Farmers” due to their treatment of humans as a crop to be managed. She must find a way to make this crime transparent to all while remaining out of reach. The Farmers are a pernicious threat, one that must be addressed. Until then, the new world order will be one of fear and manipulation by the powerful few. The conclusion to the Nae-Née series takes the reader to a Florida that is mostly underwater and to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, the Netherlands. A changed world that includes farms and orchards in every town, electric vehicles, and a currency that is created by the planet’s governments instead of its banksters is shown.

Almost a Meal is the true tale of how a man who was undiagnosed with Asperger's became acquainted with a chef who later proved to be a serial killer. It shows how Aspies do not recognize danger signs - though many neurotypicals might also fail to recognize them too. It also provides the reader with a disturbing horror story, and thus a good read.

Book Summary:

Have you ever read a dystopian novel in which you wondered how the world as we know it collapsed? Well…this novel explains that. Most apocalypse stories begin sometime in the future, after the devastation has been wrought. Not this one. This one lets you watch the horror unfold. Vaccine: The Cull - Nae-Née Wasn't Enough continues the tale of Nae-Née with a study of U.N. Agenda 21's “green”, “eco-friendly”, and “sustainability” policies while a New World Order perpetrates a covert population cull via a vaccine with a secret ingredient: a nanite that destroys cancer tumor suppressor proteins. This is a resource war. After the U.N. population treaty implemented a policy of world-wide use of the birth control nanite, Nae-Née, human-caused stressors on the ecosystem literally heated up. No longer was our planet on the brink of collapse due to biodiversity loss, rising sea levels, floods, droughts, overdependence on fossil fuels, and the climate changes that drive all that. No – collapse was upon us at last. The measures taken to handle resource shortages right in everyone’s backyards are shown: a population cull hidden in a vaccine, and a militarized surveillance society to manage the overflow.

Book Summary:

This book contains a tour that I gave as a historic interpreter at the Mark Twain House in Hartford, Connecticut. It takes the readers from the front lawn to the porch to the hall, then goes room by room throughout the author’s family home, telling the story of the wonderful life they all lived in a house that felt alive to them for seventeen years. I did this for several years, and it enabled me to learn all about the author and his family, and to read many of his works. It also led me to meet many fascinating and fun members of the public as I showed them around and told them hilarious, uproarious tales of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain, in the manner of a stand-up comic. They loved it, as did I. Many of these visitors made a wonderful remark to me at the conclusion of tour after tour after tour: “That was the best tour I have ever had anywhere. I wish I could buy a copy of it. You should write your tour down, as is.” So, I did.

Book Summary:

HORROR, ACTION-ADVENTURE, MYSTERIES, COMEDIES, FILM NOIR: Hollywood producer Ben Pivar’s output encompassed most film genres, with even a musical, some serials, and Japan’s first full-color anime thrown into the mix! Never heard of him? Not surprising, as Ben Pivar was one of the faceless craftsmen who inhabited the sizeable world of Hollywood’s cinematic underbelly, the B film. But while often disparaged and mocked for their low-budget look, breakneck storytelling, and low wattage casts, B films occupied the second half of most theaters’ bill during the thirties and forties—something most patrons expected to fill out their evening’s entertainment. And Ben Pivar was responsible for a staggering number of them. STOP YELLIN’ chronicles Pivar’s life, both the highs and lows, concentrating on his most productive years while at Universal Studios. From his late-1920s start as a film cutter at Universal, Pivar advanced into film production in the 1930s at Columbia, Grand National, and Republic, before settling in at Universal as associate producer in 1938. For the next eight years, Pivar would master his craft and churn out a lot of slick, thoroughly enjoyable films; his eventual promotion to one of the studio’s coveted executive producer positions placed him at the top of the B unit hierarchy. It’s his horror films that have stood the test of time, the films that Pivar is remembered for today: THE MUMMY’S HAND and its three sequels; the INNER SANCTUM series featuring Lon Chaney, Jr.; THE MAD GHOUL; HORROR ISLAND; and SHE-WOLF OF LONDON. There were Pivar’s own personal creations as well: CAPTIVE WILD WOMAN and its two sequels; and the Rondo Hatton “Creeper” series, HOUSE OF HORRORS (the source of the oft-quoted “Stop Yellin’” line) and THE BRUTE MAN. Anyone with an interest in Hollywood and the behind-the-scenes stories of the making of these minor films will find STOP YELLIN’ a very readable, informative, entertaining look at this under-documented segment of the industry, and a fond look back at one of the many long-forgotten individuals who thrived in it.

Book Summary:

Australia has been seen as a land of both punishment and refuge. Australian literature has explored these controlling alternatives, and vividly rendered the landscape on which they transpire. Twentieth-century writers left Australia to see the world; now Australia’s distance no longer provides sanctuary. But today the global perspective has arrived with a vengeance. In Contemporary Australian Literature: A World Not Yet Dead, Nicholas Birns tells the story of how novelists, poets and critics, from Patrick White to Hannah Kent, from Alexis Wright to Christos Tsiolkas, responded to this condition. With rancour, concern and idealism, modern Australian literature conveys a tragic sense of the past yet an abiding vision of the way forward. Birns paints a vivid picture of a rich Australian literary voice – one not lost to the churning of global markets, but in fact given new life by it. Contrary to the despairing of the critics, Australian literary identity continues to flourish. And as Birns finds, it is not one thing, but many. "In this remarkable, bold and fearless book, Nicholas Birns contests how literary cultures are read, how they are constituted and what they stand for … In examining the nature of the barriers between public and private utterance, and looking outside the absurdity of the rules of genre, Birns has produced a redemptive analysis that leaves hope for revivifying a world not yet dead." - John Kinsella

Book Summary:

The second volume of Gary Scharnhorst’s three-volume biography chronicles the life of Samuel Langhorne Clemens between his move with his family from Buffalo to Elmira (and then Hartford) in spring 1871 and their departure from Hartford for Europe in mid-1891. During this time he wrote and published some of his best-known works, including Roughing It, The Gilded Age, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Tramp Abroad, The Prince and the Pauper, Life on the Mississippi,Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Significant events include his trips to England (1872–73) and Bermuda (1877); the controversy over his Whittier Birthday Speech in December 1877; his 1878–79 Wanderjahr on the continent; his 1882 tour of the Mississippi valley; his 1884–85 reading tour with George Washington Cable; his relationships with his publishers (Elisha Bliss, James R. Osgood, Andrew Chatto, and Charles L. Webster); the death of his son, Langdon, and the births and childhoods of his daughters Susy, Clara, and Jean; as well as the several lawsuits and personal feuds in which he was involved. During these years, too, Clemens expressed his views on racial and gender equality and turned to political mugwumpery; supported the presidential campaigns of Grover Cleveland; advocated for labor rights, international copyright, and revolution in Russia; founded his own publishing firm; and befriended former president Ulysses S. Grant, supervising the publication of Grant’s Memoirs. The Life of Mark Twain is the first multi-volume biography of Samuel Clemens to appear in more than a century and has already been hailed as the definitive Twain biography.

Book Summary:

WINNER OF THE 2021 SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE NATIONAL BESTSELLER From the widely acclaimed author of American War: a new novel--beautifully written, unrelentingly dramatic, and profoundly moving--that brings the global refugee crisis down to the level of a child's eyes. More bodies have washed up on the shores of a small island. Another over-filled, ill-equipped, dilapidated ship has sunk under the weight of its too many passengers: Syrians, Ethiopians, Egyptians, Lebanese, Palestinians, all of them desperate to escape untenable lives in their homelands. And only one has made the passage: nine-year-old Amir, a Syrian boy who has the good fortune to fall into the hands not of the officials but of Vanna: a teenage girl, native to the island, who lives inside her own sense of homelessness in a place and among people she has come to disdain. And though she and the boy are complete strangers, though they don't speak a common language, she determines to do whatever it takes to save him. In alternating chapters, we learn the story of the boy's life and how he came to be on the boat; and we follow the girl and boy as they make their way toward a vision of safety. But as the novel unfurls, we begin to understand that this is not merely the story of two children finding their way through a hostile world, it is the story of our collective moment in this time: of empathy and indifference, of hope and despair--and of the way each of those things can blind us to reality, or guide us to a better one.

Book Summary:

A history of shoplifting, revealing the roots of our modern dilemma. Rachel Shteir's The Steal is the first serious study of shoplifting, tracking the fascinating history of this ancient crime. Dismissed by academia and the mainstream media and largely misunderstood, shoplifting has become the territory of moralists, mischievous teenagers, tabloid television, and self-help gurus. But shoplifting incurs remarkable real-life costs for retailers and consumers. The "crime tax"-the amount every American family loses to shoplifting-related price inflation-is more than $400 a year. Shoplifting cost American retailers $11.7 billion in 2009. The theft of one $5.00 item from Whole Foods can require sales of hundreds of dollars to break even. The Steal begins when shoplifting entered the modern record as urbanization and consumerism made London into Europe's busiest mercantile capital. Crossing the channel to nineteenth-century Paris, Shteir tracks the rise of the department store and the pathologizing of shoplifting as kleptomania. In 1960s America, shoplifting becomes a symbol of resistance when the publication of Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book popularizes shoplifting as an antiestablishment act. Some contemporary analysts see our current epidemic as a response to a culture of hyper-consumerism; others question whether its upticks can be tied to economic downturns at all. Few provide convincing theories about why it goes up or down. Just as experts can't agree on why people shoplift, they can't agree on how to stop it. Shoplifting has been punished by death, discouraged by shame tactics, and protected against by high-tech surveillance. Shoplifters have been treated by psychoanalysis, medicated with pharmaceuticals, and enforced by law to attend rehabilitation groups. While a few individuals have abandoned their sticky-fingered habits, shoplifting shows no signs of slowing. In The Steal, Shteir guides us through a remarkable tour of all things shoplifting-we visit the Woodbury Commons Outlet Mall, where boosters run rampant, watch the surveillance footage from Winona Ryder's famed shopping trip, and learn the history of antitheft technology. A groundbreaking study, The Steal shows us that shoplifting in its many guises-crime, disease, protest-is best understood as a reflection of our society, ourselves.
