In 1986, a small town in West Virginia was under siege from cocaine and Jamaican posse's. This is the story of my life. I too was under siege to cocaine. A perfect storm of addiction, consuming everything in its wake, including me. It is the story of a mother's love for her son, her family, and her unrelenting efforts to break that siege in their lives. A story of redemption and salvation through a personal awakening and the efforts of a community that refused to watch the continued destruction. A roller coaster ride of blood, pain, tears, and fury. Told through the eyes of a man who found himself deep in the belly of a monster; swallowed whole by the white knuckle grip of addiction. A mother's love and her desperate attempt to break the cycle was the path to redemption, but would he choose to follow it?

In this first volume of his two-volume autobiography, Wiesel takes us from his childhood memories of a traditional and loving Jewish family in the Romanian village of Sighet through the horrors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald and the years of spiritual struggle, to his emergence as a witness for the Holocaust's martyrs and survivors and for the State of Israel, and as a spokesman for humanity. With 16 pages of black-and-white photographs. "From the abyss of the death camps Wiesel has come as a messenger to mankind--not with a message of hate and revenge, but with one of brotherhood and atonement." --From the citation for the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize

Shishya

Shishya

Your Mother was here Missing, you. ... I could tell its been a long time, missing you I could tell her eyes had been crying. ... Oh. Obiniyi, Be at peace I saw your Mother crying I said a prayer for a soul That was clearly dying.

"Shishya is he who sees the living flame within” Shishya “the internal guiding light” will help enlighten and take the reader through a personal journey of self discovery. In this exceptional debut, the spiritual poet, Biri Sangha shares a deep insight into raw emotion and feeling. The tenderness of love and despair when it is gone, compounds Shishya's underlying mood of human nature. The poems capture the very essence of empty yearning through to celebration of self discovery and hope... As you discover the “Shishya” you will discover the path to true light, you will understand the need for the soul to be fragmented before it can be fused together again...stronger, wiser, more beautiful... The testing comes before reinforcing... The hardship comes before the celebration... Death of all fear comes before the birth of a soul reawakened, a child reborn. Most journeys are outwards but the most interesting journey is the journey inwards to the centre of your thoughts. This is where it all begins-the source of all thoughts; the ocean of all sources. As you unearth the realisation that the soul cannot be overcome by life's weathering you will realise the true secret of Shishya. "Where the soul finds reconciliation, resolution, strength, clarity, sense of direction and purpose. This is where we settle all karma and find our true dharma”. "The poems are warmly spontaneous. Exploring the moment, singularly for all its intrinsic joy and celebration. One can feel the soul rising and soaring”.

When we come across a happy narrative, we love imagining ourselves living out that story as the main character, yet, when faced with tales of human pain or suffering, we often awkwardly shy away, offer quick condolences, and say “I Can’t Imagine”. Human nature is to relish success, whimsy, and tales of happy endings. But, by avoiding those “other” stories, the painful and uncomfortable ones, we often miss out on some of life’s most important lessons. I Can’t Imagine is one of those “other” stories that will take readers through a powerful journey about a micro-preemie named Emilia Quinn Sears, who was born during a pandemic, at only 22-weeks-old, weighing just over 1 pound, with the odds of survival stacked against her. Inspired by her parents’ personal journals, passionately written to Baby Emilia, this book will take you on an epic journey of loss, love, and resilience. By the end, you will be able to imagine what it is like to fight for your child’s survival in the NICU, ultimately losing your battle and subsequently watching your world get destroyed. You will also experience the beautiful lessons and raw power of purpose that can arise from some of the worst things anyone can imagine.

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MEMORY? Or, rather, what do you imagine to be your earliest memory? Perhaps, alternatively, there was a moment during childhood when the world’s axis shifted? A transformative realisation, epiphany or experience that changed the course of your life: your very own ‘sense of a beginning’… In My First Memory, bestselling anthologist Ben Holden explores these touchstones via the watershed experiences of some of the greatest figures of our age. Along the way, he lightly explores how memory and childhood merge to form identity. How, in the process, we not only create individual origin-stories but also, on a broader level, fashion human history. The first memories of iconic figures – from Machiavelli to Freud, Einstein to Hawking, Churchill to Luther King, Pankhurst to Angelou, Pavarotti to Springsteen, and Pelé to Bolt – combine with exclusive, personal pieces by some of today’s greatest writers, scientists and thinkers: the likes of Sebastian Barry, Melvyn Bragg, David Eagleman, Susan Greenfield, Tessa Hadley, Javier Marías, Michael Morpurgo and the late Ursula K Le Guin. The trip down memory lane is heightened by the remembrances of refugees: from heroic figures such as Madeleine Albright, Isabel Allende, Alf Dubs, Yusra Mardini, Elie Wiesel and Stefan Zweig to lesser-known but no less courageous voices. Many of these moving accounts tell of children being forced to leave home and family behind forever. They may have grown up to lead inspirational lives – but none ever forgot from whence they came. After all, each of us must start somewhere and – as this timeless collection unforgettably proves – there is always a first time for everything. Praise for Poems That Make Grown Men Cry: 'Everyone who reads this collection will be roused: disturbed by the pain, exalted in the zest for joy given by poets' Observer 'That's the great thing about a good anthology of poems: you are reminded of old friends and introduced to new ones... This is a welcome addition to my shelves' Sunday Telegraph 'A fascinating anthology. Finding out what makes particular men emotional is intriguing' Irish Independent 'The title is pure genius... what I love most is the proud grasp of emotion as mature and manly. Two words that become magnificent in their juxtaposition: "men" and "cry"' Daily Mail 'This is a really thought-provoking book...The range of contributors leads to a wonderful range of verse. And the overall result is a wonderfully powerful and moving experience' The Times
