Popati Hiranandani's (1924-2007) autobiograpy unfolds the experiences of her personal life trapped in the geo-political debris of pre- and post-Partition India. She traces the agony and ecstasy of her life, the critical junctures of becoming and unbecoming in the life of a Sindhi woman-the two phases of her pre-Partition and post-Partition life are fused by the inconsolable and unmitigated trauma triggered by the loss of home. Through an exegesis of gender relations in colonial and postcolonial India and scrutiny of personal experiences and memories, Hiranandani offers her understanding of the real obstacles that come in women's ways of wielding autonomy over their lives. Hiranandani's short stories posit a fictional account of multifaceted existence of womanhood. Caught in the web of nostalgia, agony, pain of separation, and reunion-both imaginary and real-Hiranandani's protagonists attempt to veil their tears and recount the stories of the lives that remained untold and unheard for a long time. Translated, and with an Introduction, by Jyoti Panjwani, this work traces the migration of the Sindhi community in pre- and post-Partition India. The detailed analysis of the development of Sindhi literature is accompanied by Panjwani's re-contextualizing of Hiranandani's life and work in present-day India.

Award-winning and bestselling author James L. Rubart explores the way our memories shape us . . . and how they affect our beliefs. Allison Moore has no idea why she got out of her car on that rainy March afternoon and picked up the soaked journal laying on the side of the road. Brought it home. But she did. It was empty. Except for two lines scrawled in the front, too washed out to read. And a Jesus emblem inside the back cover. Something about the journal compels her to start writing in it, capturing thoughts about her newly acquired job that she thought would be heaven, but has turned into hell. Then one day, she finds words in the center of the journal. Words she didn’t write: Mene mene tekel upharsin. After her heart stops hammering, Allison Googles the phrase, and reads the story of Belshazzar's Feast, where a hand from God writes on the wall, and the king is slain. Fear grips her, certain God is coming after her for what she did twelve years back. What she’s done wrong her whole life. She vows to make things right. Then she discovers more phrases appearing underneath each of her journal entries. Those phrases take her on an emotional roller coaster that forces her to look at everything she believes about her past in a new light, and opens her eyes to a supernatural realm of staggering consequence.

Rescued from a Dumpster on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, a discarded diary brings to life the glamorous, forgotten world of an extraordinary young woman. For more than half a century, the red leather diary lay silent, languishing inside a steamer trunk, its worn cover crumbling into little flakes. When a cleaning sweep of a New York City apartment building brings this lost treasure to light, both the diary and its owner are given a second life. Recovered by Lily Koppel, a young writer working at the New York Times, the journal paints a vivid picture of 1930s New York—horseback riding in Central Park, summer excursions to the Catskills, and an obsession with a famous avant-garde actress. From 1929 to 1934, not a single day's entry is skipped. Opening the tarnished brass lock, Koppel embarks on a journey into the past, traveling to a New York in which women of privilege meet for tea at Schrafft's, dance at the Hotel Pennsylvania, and toast the night at El Morocco. As she turns the diary's brittle pages, Koppel is captivated by the headstrong young woman whose intimate thoughts and emotions fill the pale blue lines. Who was this lovely ingénue who adored the works of Baudelaire and Jane Austen, who was sexually curious beyond her years, who traveled to Rome, Paris, and London? Compelled by the hopes and heartaches captured in the pages, Koppel sets out to find the diary's owner, her only clue the inscription on the frontispiece—"This book belongs to . . . Florence Wolfson." A chance phone call from a private investigator leads Koppel to Florence, a ninety-year-old woman living with her husband of sixty-seven years. Reunited with her diary, Florence ventures back to the girl she once was, rediscovering a lost self that burned with artistic fervor. Joining intimate interviews with original diary entries, Koppel reveals the world of a New York teenager obsessed with the state of her soul and her appearance, and muses on the serendipitous chain of events that returned the lost journal to its owner. Evocative and entrancing, The Red Leather Diary re-creates the romance and glitter, sophistication and promise, of 1930s New York, bringing to life the true story of a precocious young woman who dared to follow her dreams.

Woven among the pages through this almost unbelievable story, you will come to know me. This chapter of my life ended in tragedy. A tragedy that would engulf my life for many years to come until I was able to go back to the little dirt lane back on the farm to gain final closure As I Turn The Pages of Life begins with life''s first memories. Those memories were of my Grandfather, a very distinguished gentleman whose relationship I continue to cherish even today. The story begins where I grew up, on a farm in West Tennessee during the 50''s. I lived in fear of the military after finishing high school for the next four years, knowing Vietnam was a place from which I could not escape, I was drafted in the spring of 1968, and my fears came true when in August of 1968 I landed in Bien Hoa South Vietnam. I became a member of the 101st. Airborne Division and over the course of the next twelve months earned two Bronze Stars and the Air Medal. I truly believe I returned from Vietnam alive only by the Grace of God with help from my Grandmother. She passed away while I was in Vietnam and became my special Angel, guiding me through the many battles yet to come. She remains my special Angel to this day. There was also another reason to stay alive while in Vietnam. A precious young lady was waiting for me to return. When I arrived home from Vietnam and tuned into her driveway she placed her arms around me and at that moment I truly understood the meaning of love. Through this love story we shared a tragedy and separation that I believe will captivate the hearts of those who read it. The tragedy of her death was almost more than I could bear until returned to the little dirt lane on the farm gaining final closure.

In this impressively interdisciplinary study, Evelyne Ender revisits master literary works to suggest that literature can serve as an experimental laboratory for the study of human remembrance. She shows how memory not only has a factual basis but is inseparable from fictional and aesthetic elements. Beautifully written in accessible prose, and impressive in its scope, the book takes up works by Proust, Woolf, George Eliot, Nerval, Lou Andreas-Salome, and Sigmund Freud, getting to the heart of essential questions about mental images, empirical knowledge, and the devastations of memory loss in ways that are suggestive and profound. Architexts of Memory joins a growing body of work in the lively field of memory studies, drawing from clinical psychology, psychoanalysis, and neurobiology as well as literary studies. "An important, cogently argued, subtle and rich study of a topic of great interest." --Mieke Bal, University of Amsterdam "A work of literary studies positioned at the intersection of tradition and innovation. Evelyne Ender's book brings fashionable cultural concerns to bear on traditional literary texts-her superb pedagogical skills lure and guide the reader through the most difficult psychoanalytical concepts." --Nelly Furman, Cornell University Evelyne Ender is Professor of French Studies, University of Washington. She is the author of Sexing the Mind: Nineteenth-Century Fictions of Hysteria.

Writer Jack Adler describes 75 famous friendships throughout history from mythical to contemporary times. Along the way, the lives and personalities of artists, politicians, philosophers, soldiers, and outlaws are outlined, including some personal details that may not be well-known. Presenting sketches of individuals like Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony, Adam Smith and David Hume, Charles Baudelaire and Edouard Manet, David Henry Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Susan Anthony and Elizabeth Stanton, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Vladimir Horowitz — even Al Capone and Johnny Torrio — the author shows how contrasting as well as comparable personalities, characters and temperaments can support and strengthen each other, and he explores the range of ties that may influence a person during one phase of life or may become the center of one's life altogether. The book examines the peculiar power of the bonds of friendship and provides illuminating details on how major friendships throughout history emerged and developed — or fell apart. Each friendship, and the respective personalities of the pairings or groups, is carefully placed in the context of its historical period. The material is accurate and written in an easy-to-read style. Illustrations of the personalities, and many of their quotes, embellish the text.

About the Book “Barren No More” initially started as a sermon that the Lord had dropped in my spirit to preach. The more I wrote, the longer it became. I would say, “Lord this is too long to preach”...and that’s when he said that he wanted me to put it into a book. I said Lord I will be obedient and do it. I completed what I believed to be the final draft last year in 2012, but was waiting on the Lord to tell me how to get it published. I was determined not to get ahead of God on this project. I received a word from the Lord through someone very special to me. I was teaching a class, and out of the blue this minister said to me “so what are you going to do about those books?” I looked at her and said what do you mean? She repeated what she had said again. I spoke to her about it later that night and she offered to help me get it published. I said, “Hallelujah let’s do it.”
