Book Summary:

No one knew Staceyann's mother was pregnant until a dangerously small baby was born on the floor of her grandmother's house in Lottery, Jamaica, on Christmas Day. Staceyann's mother did not want her, and her father was not present. No one, except her grandmother, thought Staceyann would survive. It was her grandmother who nurtured and protected and provided for Staceyann and her older brother in the early years. But when the three were separated, Staceyann was thrust, alone, into an unfamiliar and dysfunctional home in Paradise, Jamaica. There, she faced far greater troubles than absent parents. So, armed with a fierce determination and uncommon intelligence, she discovered a way to break out of this harshly unforgiving world. Staceyann Chin, acclaimed and iconic performance artist, now brings her extraordinary talents to the page in a brave, lyrical, and fiercely candid memoir about growing up in Jamaica. She plumbs tender and unsettling memories as she writes about drifting from one home to the next, coming out as a lesbian, and finding the man she believes to be her father and ultimately her voice. Hers is an unforgettable story told with grace, humor, and courage.

Book Summary:

Change looms in Havana, Cuba's capital, a city electric with uncertainty yet cloaked in cliché, 90 miles from U.S. shores and off-limits to most Americans. Journalist Julia Cooke, who lived there at intervals over a period of five years, discovered a dynamic scene: baby-faced anarchists with Mohawks gelled with laundry soap, whiskey-drinking children of the elite, Santería trainees, pregnant prostitutes, university graduates planning to leave for the first country that will give them a visa. This last generation of Cubans raised under Fidel Castro animate life in a waning era of political stagnation as the rest of the world beckons: waiting out storms at rummy hurricane parties and attending raucous drag cabarets, planning ascendant music careers and black-market business ventures, trying to reconcile the undefined future with the urgent today. Eye-opening and politically prescient, The Other Side of Paradise offers a deep new understanding of a place that has so confounded and intrigued us.

Book Summary:

In 1937 Hollywood, gossip columnist Sheilah Graham’s star is on the rise, while literary wonder boy F. Scott Fitzgerald’s career is slowly drowning in booze. But the once-famous author, desperate to make money penning scripts for the silver screen, is charismatic enough to attract the gorgeous Miss Graham, a woman who exposes the secrets of others while carefully guarding her own. Like Fitzgerald’s hero Jay Gatsby, Graham has meticulously constructed a life far removed from the poverty of her childhood in London’s slums. And like Gatsby, the onetime guttersnipe learned early how to use her charms to become a hardworking success; she is feted and feared by both the movie studios and their luminaries. A notorious drunk famously married to the doomed Zelda, Fitzgerald fell hard for his “Shielah” (he never learned to spell her name), a shrewd yet softhearted woman—both a fool for love and nobody’s fool—who would stay with him and help revive his career until his tragic death three years later. Working from Sheilah’s memoirs, interviews, and letters, Sally Koslow revisits their scandalous love affair and Graham’s dramatic transformation in London, bringing Graham and Fitzgerald gloriously to life with the color, glitter, magic, and passion of 1930s Hollywood.

Book Summary:

A Family Forgotten? What self-proclaimed loner and rootless orphan Mary McHale couldn't anticipate when she arrived at Towbridge Ranch for the winter were the feelings her new surroundings stirred deep within her…a mysterious déjà vu unlike anything the relentlessly independent wrangler had ever experienced. Jonah Lanigan couldn't drive the haunting blue eyes of his new employee from his mind—or dismiss the notion that they were an eerie reflection of others he'd seen before. Could he help Mary piece together her fragmented past…and in the process, become part of her future?

Book Summary:

Following Bob Chinn's life from his humble upbringing by Chinese immigrants in Los Angeles, the Territory of Hawaii, and southeastern New Mexico, The Other Side of Paradise Volume Two shows how the world around him shaped Chinn into the man who would become one of the best adult film directors of all time. Set against the changing times of the '60s and '70s, this story provides an invaluable record of how he and his contemporaries took up the fight against censorship, protecting and extending the rights of free speech, and pioneered the golden age of adult film. About the Author: Bob Chinn is the creator and porn auteur of the nine-part Johnny Wadd adult film series that, in 1970, launched the career of legendary porn icon, John Curtis Holmes. After graduating from UCLA film school, Chinn had aspirations of becoming a mainstream Hollywood director but began to accept work opportunities in the erotic movie genre in order to support his young family. The film noir character, private detective Johnny Wadd, was conceived by Chinn when a tall young man sporting an unruly afro entered Chinn's office seeking employment as an actor. Recognizing the potential after the man dropped his pants, Chinn hired John Holmes on the spot, and wrote a script for his new talent on the back of an envelope. Two days later, the very first Johnny Wadd movie was in the can. The modest picture was an instant sensation among adult film fans. Forty years after its release, Johnny Wadd has become a historic and timeless piece of filmmaking that ignited Holmes' stardom and defined Bob Chinn as one of the most influential and respected players of the so-called Golden Age of adult pictures

Book Summary:

Elegant, brutal, and profound—this magnificent debut captures the grit and glory of modern Hawai'i with breathtaking force and accuracy. In a stunning collection that announces the arrival of an incredible talent, Kristiana Kahakauwila travels the islands of Hawai'i, making the fabled place her own. Exploring the deep tensions between local and tourist, tradition and expectation, façade and authentic self, This Is Paradise provides an unforgettable portrait of life as it’s truly being lived on Maui, Oahu, Kaua'i and the Big Island. In the gut-punch of “Wanle,” a beautiful and tough young woman wants nothing more than to follow in her father’s footsteps as a legendary cockfighter. With striking versatility, the title story employs a chorus of voices—the women of Waikiki—to tell the tale of a young tourist drawn to the darker side of the city’s nightlife. “The Old Paniolo Way” limns the difficult nature of legacy and inheritance when a patriarch tries to settle the affairs of his farm before his death. Exquisitely written and bursting with sharply observed detail, Kahakauwila’s stories remind us of the powerful desire to belong, to put down roots, and to have a place to call home.
