This is the book about immigration detention that all Australians need to read. During the time of the Gillard government, 24-year-old Sydneysider Adele Dumont accepted a volunteer position to teach English to men in immigration detention on Christmas Island. She did not expect to find the work so rewarding or the people she met so interesting. When she was offered a job working at Curtin detention centre near Derby in Western Australia, she took it. Working at Curtin required her to live a fly-in fly-out lifestyle, feeling never quite settled in one place or the other. She lived in a donga when she was in WA, her life full of bus trips to the detention centre and the work she did there; back home in Sydney, she was overwhelmed by the choices people had and the things they didn't do with those choices. What kept her returning to Curtin were her students: men from many lands who had sacrificed all they knew for a chance to live in Australia; men who were unfailingly polite to her in a situation that was barbarous. Slowly, falteringly, these men learned her language and taught her things about their culture. No Man is an Island is the story that will make the issue of immigration detention accessible to far more interested Australians than any number of stern newspaper articles. It is a vividly told story that is full of characters and humanity. It is the story about immigration detention that all Australians need to read.

"The sun is setting in America, and darkness is falling. Our nation needs knights." Truth is under assault in America, causing her to weaken from within. In NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND, Dex Bahr argues that at no time in our history is it more crucial for Christian men to have the courage to be knights in defense of God, country and family. Bahr illuminates readers to the hostile spiritual and ideological forces that have hijacked faith, education, politics and media and why they must be defeated Praise for NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND: "I highly recommend this book for the author's passion and heartfelt desire for the Christian man to not be passive, but to be actively involved in his Christian life. We are living in a world of decay and though we will not be able to stop it from its downward spiral, we have the chance to slow down its course, and we begin with a good comprehension and knowledge of our situation. NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND thoughtfully addresses these issues and clearly challenges us to a passionate pursuit of God. The opportunity to be a hero of God is out there, just go and do it. 'The world has yet to see what God could do to a fully surrendered man.' By Henry Varley (friend of D.L. Moody)." -Jofri Frigillana, M. Div.; Th. M. (Talbot Theological Seminary) Good Shepherd Baptist Church - Anaheim, CA ************************************************************************* Dex Bahr is a freelance writer. A former broadcast news reporter, Mr. Bahr has worked in major markets, including KJEO-TV in Fresno, California and OCN in Santa Ana, California. Mr. Bahr has been a Christian since 1980 and has served the Lord as a lay speaker and small group leader. He is married with two children.

Shortlisted for the 2017 Gourmand International Cookbook Prize Los Angeles Times Cookbook of the week Jean-Marie Monfort Hébert Georges Fils "TiGeorges" Laguerre died at birth. But anyone who knows the gregarious, polylingual chef and restaurant owner realizes that it takes more than something like dying to keep this charismatic man down. Laguerre was revived, and in the decades since, has lived life to the fullest. His new memoir is a recipe for real talk and a hearty blend of food, family, and country. Laguerre spills secrets of his one-of-a-kind cuisine, talks about the life in Haiti, and shares his everyman's immigrant's journey from the Caribbean to New York, and then across the country to Los Angeles.

Essay from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Comparative Literature, , language: English, abstract: The present paper is a humble endeavour to map the familial and friendly association in literature with special reference to Ruskin Bond’s select stories of "No Man is an Island" (2013), a collection of short stories and poems. The lineage and genealogy of literature display that Bond is not the first author to write, to narrate and to exhibit the ebullient ambience of family and friendly folks. Chaucer’s “The Canterbury Tales” marvellously archive the collective enterprise of his twenty nine characters who friendly embark upon the journey from the Tabard Inn to Thomas Bicket’s Church. The present paper underscores the chore of friendship in family and family in friendship which is the verisimilitude of individualistic as well as pluralistic lives.

Alles ist Illusion – Margaret Atwoods Verneigung vor dem großen Bühnenmagier William Shakespeare Felix ist ein begnadeter Theatermacher und in der Szene ein Star. Seine Inszenierungen sind herausfordernd, aufregend, legendär. Nun will er Shakespeares „Der Sturm“ auf die Bühne bringen. Das soll ihn noch berühmter machen – und ihm helfen, eine private Tragödie zu vergessen. Doch nach einer eiskalten Intrige seiner engsten Mitarbeiter zieht sich Felix zurück, verliert sich in Erinnerungen und sinnt auf Rache. Die Gelegenheit kommt zwölf Jahre später, als ein Zufall die Verräter in seine Nähe bringt. In ihrem brillanten Roman schafft die große kanadische Autorin Margaret Atwood mit der Figur des Theaterdirektors Felix ein würdiges Pendant zu Shakespeares Prospero aus „Der Sturm“, jenes Zauberers, der als ein Selbstporträt des alternden Barden aus Stratford-on-Avon gilt.

North Island is a strange place, inhabited by ordinary people and by demons and angels in human form. It's also a loving place-one where sleeping around is encouraged rather than frowned upon. Caleb Smith is one of the "normal" residents of the island, but from an early age, he shows an uncanny knack for solving complex puzzles. When Caleb is still young, the gruesome murder of a ten-year-old boy rocks the island-and his world. The victim, Asgeir, claimed he could talk to angels and soothed the elderly and infirm with his special knowledge. Unfortunately, Asgeir's death is only the first of many horrific events to come. Caleb grows into a man deeply troubled by violence, but the problems he witnesses on the US mainland and in Russia are nothing compared to what waits for him on North Island...A magnetically attractive childhood friend with supernatural powers is back and intends to do Caleb grave harm. With the help of his devout brother, Joshua, and his empathic sister, Patty, Caleb races to get to the bottom of the island's many mysteries. Can they put all the pieces together in time to survive the storm ahead?
