Book Summary:

Maya Angelou has fascinated, moved, and inspired countless readers with the first three volumes of her autobiography, one of the most remarkable personal narratives of our age. Now, in her fourth volume, The Heart of a Woman, her turbulent life breaks wide open with joy as the singer-dancer enters the razzle-dazzle of fabulous New York City. There, at the Harlem Writers Guild, her love for writing blazes anew. Her compassion and commitment lead her to respond to the fiery times by becoming the northern coordinator of Martin Luther King's history-making quest. A tempestuous, earthy woman, she promises her heart to one man only to have it stolen, virtually on her weding day, by a passionate African freedom fighter. Filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous characters, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose -- her fondest dreams, deepest disappointments, and her dramatically tender relationship with her rebellious teenage son. Vulnerable, humorous, tough, Maya speaks with an intimate awareness of the heart within all of us.

Book Summary:

First published in 1937. The Book of Songs is a collection of ancient Chinese songs, dating from 800 to 600 B.C. Until this was published in 1937 it had not been translated into English since the middle of nineteenth century, when sinology was still in its infancy. For the first time the original meaning of 290 out of the 305 songs is given, use being made of the advances in the study of old Chinese. The result is not merely a clear picture of early Chinese life, but also the restoration to its proper place in world literature of one of the finest collection of traditional songs.

Book Summary:

An Ancient Collection Reimagined Composed around the Buddha’s lifetime, the Therigatha (“Verses of the Elder Nuns”) contains the poems of the first Buddhist women: princesses and courtesans, tired wives of arranged marriages and the desperately in love, those born into limitless wealth and those born with nothing at all. The original authors of the Therigatha were women from every kind of background, but they all shared a deep-seated desire for awakening and liberation. In The First Free Women, Matty Weingast has reimagined this ancient collection and created a contemporary and radical adaptation that takes the essence of each poem and highlights the struggles and doubts, as well as the strength, perseverance, and profound compassion, embodied by these courageous women.

Book Summary:

Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova. With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an uncompromising account of life on the edge.

Book Summary:

ANVARI: SELECTED POEMSTranslation & Introduction by Paul SmithAhad-ud-din Anvari Abeverdi (1126-1189) was a court poet of the Seljuk sultans. Jami composed a ruba'i where he names him, along with Firdausi and Sadi as one of the 'three apostles' of Persian poetry. He was also a celebrated astronomer, mathematician and scientist who admitted he gave them up for the more lucrative occupation of … a court poet, that he later rejected twenty years before his death for a life of seclusion and contemplation. He is renowned for his delightful wittiness that can be found in many of his ruba'is and qit'as and ghazals. He is one of the greatest Persian masters of the qasida and his one called 'The Tears of Khurasan' is considered his masterpieces. He created a new kind of poetry by using the conversational language of his time in simple words and expressions. The correct rhyme-structure has been kept as well as the beauty and meaning of these beautiful, poems. 164 pages.COMMENTS ON PAUL SMITH'S TRANSLATION OF HAFIZ'S 'DIVAN'.“It is not a joke... the English version of ALL the ghazals of Hafiz is a great feat and of paramount importance. I am astonished. If he comes to Iran I will kiss the fingertips that wrote such a masterpiece inspired by the Creator of all.” Dr. Mir Mohammad Taghavi (Dr. of Literature) Tehran.“Superb translations. 99% Hafiz 1% Paul Smith.” Ali Akbar Shapurzman, translator of books into Persian and knower of Hafiz's Divan off by heart. “Smith has probably put together the greatest collection of literary facts and history concerning Hafiz.” Daniel Ladinsky (Penguin Books author). Paul Smith is a poet, author and translator of over 80 books of Sufi poets from the Persian, Arabic, Urdu, and other languages including Hafiz, Sadi, Nizami, Rumi, 'Attar, Sana'i, Jahan Khatun, Obeyd Zakani, Mu'in, Amir Khusrau, Nesimi, Kabir, Anvari, Ansari, Jami, Khayyam, Rudaki, Yunus Emre, Lalla Ded, Bulleh Shah, Shah Latif, Mahsati and others, and his own poetry, fiction, plays, biographies, children's books and screenplays.www.newhumanitybooksbookheaven.com

Book Summary:

Did you know that even a newborn baby gains lifelong benefit from story time? Neuro-educational studies have found that the brain is most impressionable to the nuances of languages during the first three years of life, and that the ritual of storytelling enhances problem-solving, decision-making, and even an understanding of abstract ideas. In fact, reading to your young children is more than a shared pleasure; it's an essential routine that is best introduced long before your children express an interest. Now, education specialist Jennise Conley, founder of the Energy and Sciences Education Initiative, presents an indispensable, early-development resource in the form of her whimsical, charming children's book, A Fish, a Frog, and a Gnome: My Favorite Poems. Through three easy-to-read, playful rhymes and vibrant illustrations, this book is certain to help engage children and students in a lifelong joy of reading while helping to sharpen their cognitive abilities and tap into the power of their young imaginations. Presented in large, clean letters with eye-catching, colorful pictures, the three delightful, whimsical rhymes featured in this book will help start an early ritual of reading that is both fun and reader friendly, while at the same time enhancing cognitive development. Themed around three wishes, the rhymes introduce children to this abstract notion through clear, comprehensible stories. "The First Wish" features a young child who wishes to catch a fish, and instead finds something very different. "The Second Wish" spotlights a bespectacled frog, who wishes that he was a dog with surprising, silly results. "The Third Wish" finds a gnome at home, grumpily sleeping on a piece of foam. In addition, the book features a letter to parents to help them make the most of story time. From instructions on the best practices for reading to newborns to the importance of repetition in the human brain, this instructional letter will enable any parent to make the most out of reading to lend comfort, facilitate the processing of information, and make story time a perennially fun experience for your child. By portraying books as a treasure trove of exciting mysteries and new ideas to discover, you'll share with your children a magical world that will become a natural, and deeply meaningful, part of your child's life.

Book Summary:

"Daddy, what is a white lie?" My father put down his spoon and looked at me thoughtfully. "Why'd you ask, Princess?" "I heard you talking yesterday and you said 'one more white lie isn't going to make a difference.' I just want to know what you meant." "You heard that, huh?" My father tilted his head to study me. "It's just a small lie you tell when you don't want to hurt someone's feelings. It's nothing for you to worry about." My eyes grew wide. "Like when you told Aunt Rena that her pie was good even though it tasted icky?" "Exactly." He smiled. "Or when you told the man last week that you hadn't seen Uncle Bruno and you had?" The Smile fell from his face and he straightened in his chair. "No, Princess, that was a different kind of lie." Scrunching up my nose, I asked, "What kind of lie was that?" My father swallowed hard before replying. "That's the kind of lie where you have to have a real good memory." As an inquisitive child, the woman known as Clarissa Solano, could never have imagined how significant those words would become. That she would spend years twisting the truth: hoping and praying that she would not contradict herself and expose the secrets she keeps locked inside. Most of the people in her life don't really know her at all. She forces them to swallow her lies, but she is the one who feels the bitter aftertaste of deception. When Lane Hunter sweeps into her life, she finds herself opening up in ways she never thought possible. He sees beyond the facade to the woman beneath and knows instantly that he wants her. However, all is not as it seems and when secrets and lies are exposed, it threatens to destroy them all. This is the first book in a series of standalone HEAs"

Book Summary:

Human sacrifice, communities eaten from within, a vast mind blazing under the mud of Lake Titicaca; the rise and fall of empires cruel and kind. In the Andes of a thousand years ago, the Huari empire is sick. Its communities are being eaten from within by a plague, a contagion that is not of the body but of something far deeper, a plague that has taken their collective spirit. Rooting out this parasite is a task that is laid upon Q'ilyasisa, a young woman from an obscure little village on the forgotten borders of the Huari empire. This impossible mission is imposed on her by a vast mind, a sentience that has ambitions to shape all human life. Her response to this entails confrontations on sacrificial pyramids, long journeys through the Amazonian jungle and the establishment of not just one but two new empires. Her legacy shapes future Andean civilisation until the arrival of the Spanish. Dark Sun, Bright Moon explores the unique Andean metaphysic: not one of gods and heavens, but a cosmology developed over millennia of isolation, developed over generations by its practitioners but at constant war with the various state religions. It has been systematised from current beliefs, but is essentially authentic to them. As described in the book, therefore, this cosmology is a concrete thing, neither magic nor religion but a technology with a logic of its own that drives the story line. However, this is above all an adventure story in which credible people undertake rational if desperate acts in the face of extreme threat. Dark Sun, Bright Moon is illustrated with over a hundred images (B&W, engravings and maps) and consists of around 170,000 words set in 40 chapters and an appendix, which last gives extensive background material. The author knows modern Peru very well, and has visited all of the physical sites that are described in the book.
