Falling Leaves - The True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter, Adeline Yen Mah
1 Adeline Yen Mah Falling Leaves - The True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter
Penguin Books 239349 Great Britain 1997 0140265988 / 9780140265989 Softcover Very Good Condition Born in 1937 in a port city a thousand miles north of Shanghai, Adeline Yen Mah was the youngest child of an affluent Chinese family who enjoyed rare privileges during a time of political and cultural upheaval. But wealth and position could not shield Adeline from a childhood of appalling emotional abuse at the hands of a cruel and manipulative Eurasian stepmother. Determined to survive through her enduring faith in family unity, Adeline struggled for independence as she moved from Hong Kong to England and eventually to the United States to become a physician and writer. A compelling, painful, and ultimately triumphant story of a girl's journey into adulthood, Adeline's story is a testament to the most basic of human needs: acceptance, love, and understanding. With a powerful voice that speaks of the harsh realities of growing up female in a family and society that kept girls in emotional chains, "Falling Leaves" is a work of heartfelt intimacy and a rare authentic portrait of twentieth-century China. 248 pages.

Sydney, Geoffrey Moorehouse
6 Geoffrey Moorehouse Sydney
A&U 239043 Australia 1999 First Edition 1865081280 / 9781865081281 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good 'No other city was born under so cruel a star, but no other city now gives the impressionable visitor such a feeling of still boundless optimism.This is the great city of Sydney, as summed up by Geoffrey Moorhouse in his brilliant history of Australia's principal metropolis.In a broad sweep he takes the reader from long before the arrival of the First Fleet loaded with convicts in 1788, to the preparation for the Olympic Games in 2000. In between he also describes and analyses the life of Sydney as we reach a new century - its aboriginal community and wealth of prehistoric art, its complex racial mix, its great sporting traditions, its cultural aspirations which produced the glorious Opera House, its crucial function as a seaport and its value to the naval strategists, its authoritarian and intolerant streak, its corruptions and mismanagements, its long political loyalty to the Australian Labor Party, its cherished rivalry with Melbourne, its generosities and its tremendous vitality, its many sensual delights.His descriptions of the Botanic Gardens, of the Royal Easter Show, of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, of ANZAC Day, are as vivid as anything Moorhouse has ever written. But above all there is Sydney's greatest and most incomparable heirloom, its alpha and its omega - 'the most beautiful working harbour in the world'. Geoffrey Moorhouse's Sydney may be seen as a sequel to his highly acclaimed earlier books on Calcutta and New York. Drawing on a lifetime's acquaintance with great cities of the world, he concludes that Sydney represents 'our very last chance to get the urban thing more or less right'; the opportunity for a great polygot community to live together in harmony. 277 pages.

Enough of the cruel butcher to whom he is apprenticed and enough of his indifferent father lurking somewhere in the background of his existence. He's had enough of the squalor of his life in London. He's going to run away. But when he's stowed away on board a smallish ship he has no idea how famous this journey will be, one of the most famous journeys of discovery in maritime history. Three years it will take before he'll come back to London, three long years of adventure and hardship: an eleven-year-old boy among eighty tough-minded, seafaring men and under constant scrutiny from the gentlemen on board. There's midshipman Bootie who makes every day a living hell for Nick and John Ravenhill the drunken sail maker. But Dr. Monkhouse, the surgeon, and Mr Banks, the botanist stand up for their keen and gifted assistant and one by one Nick befriends the crew. So the journey progresses and the ship's company see places, people, sights, sounds and customs that no man has set eyes on ever before. There's fever, famine and drought; exotic plants, stunning wildlife, blistering heat and tremendous cold. The crew in turn marvel and shudder at what comes their way and not everyone makes the return journey home. Front cover has a closed tear. 293 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Australian Classics: Haxby's Circus, Katharine Susannah Prichard
11 Katharine Susannah Prichard Australian Classics: Haxby's Circus
Angus & Robertson 243234 Australia 2013 0732297249 / 9780732297244 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Run away to the circus with this book by award-winning Australian novelist Katharine Susannah Prichard. A world of wandering mushroom tents, spawning on bare paddocks beside some small town and then off again ... places that smelt of milk and wheat, where the farmer people gave you milk and apples, or melons; you got fresh water to drink and a bath sometimes. A dirty, strenuous world. Cruel, courageous, a hard, hungry world for all the glitter and flare of its laughter; but a good world, her world.' Welcome to Haxby's Circus - the lightest, brightest little show on earth. From Bendigo to Narrabri, travelling the long and dusty roads between harvest fields, the Haxby family and their troupe - acrobats, contortionists, wirewalkers, clowns and wild beasts - perform under the glaring lights of the big top. But away from the spotlight and superficial glamour of the circus the real, and sometimes tragic, lives of the performers are exposed: their hopes and dreams, successes and failures, the drudgery of life on the road. Proprietor Dan Haxby lives by the maxim 'the show must go on', even when his daughter Gina, the bareback rider, has a dreadful accident. Gina may never ride again, but, with some advice from circus dwarf Rocca, who shows her how to transform her liability into art, she flourishes and discovers a courageous spirit within. 277 pages.

Collins 244805 London 1981 0002161915 / 9780002161916 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Mirella Ricciardi, the internationally famous photographer, author of VANISHING AFRICA, has written one of the strangest stories of life and death to come out of Africa. In 1929 her father, an Italian wartime fighter pilot, and her mother, a French sculptress, built themselves an art deco palazzo on the shores of Lake Naivasha in Kenya. They put down their roots, farmed five thousand acres and raised their three children in an earthly paradise. In these vivid and sometimes startlingly honest pages the author describes the seven ages of Man lived against the cruel beauty of Africa. As a child she hunts barefoot with a Maasai warrior; her father is imprisoned and deported; her brother fights in the battle against the Mau Mau; she marries an Italian adventurer and falls in love with an African fisherman; she creates and best-selling book; her children grow up; her parents are attacked, survive, grow older and die. The Africa she knew as a child dies too - and in the final pages she watches a new one come to life. There have been no family stories quite like this one, and none illustrated with such a range of rare and evocative photographs. 300 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper.

The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature - The Collected Writings of Neal Pollack, Neal Pollack
17 Neal Pollack The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature - The Collected Writings of Neal Pollack
Perennial 229531 USA 2002 0060004533 / 9780060004538 Softcover Good Condition After World War II, American literature faced extinction. With the sorrowful decline of John O'Hara, the typewriter shortage of 1946, and the advent of television, it was apparent that American writing, so dominant in the first half of the century, was about to fade into a cruel oblivion. But then Neal Pollack manifested himself in the US consciousness as the pre-eminent American writer, a position he has not relinquished except for a brief period in 1972, when the title belonged to Erica Jong. Neal Pollack has published more than 40 books of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, literary criticism, and military history. He has won the Pulitzer Prize, the Booker Prize, the National Book Award (three times), and the Premio Rigoberta Menchu for service to the indigenous peoples of Guatemala. As a journalist, he has written for every major American magazine, some Canadian ones, and a couple of the better British publications as well. He has covered the Cuban revolution, the sexual revolution, and the Republican Revolution of 1994. In Vietnam he took a bullet for his buddy and lived. He has advised and betrayed four presidents, and is a figure unrivalled.Incredibly, this is the first comprehensive collection of his work ever published, largely because the government is afraid of his ideas. Contained within are excerpts from his most popular novels, such as Leon: A Man of the Streets, and his most significant nonfiction works, including his landmark essay on U.S. foreign policy, The Decision to Invade New Zealand and How It Wasn't Made. This book is pointed and funny, moving and eloquent, but more importantly, it is a comprehensive chronicle of the world in which we live, have lived, and are yet to live. It is a must-read for every American with access to a computer, and also those who go to public libraries. As he writes this, Neal Pollack hears the eagle's roar from atop Mount Winchester, and it reminds him of Wally Trumbull, his first love, his roommate at Exeter, so cruelly taken away from him in the Phillipines so long ago. He would have gladly worked a job like ordinary men, have passed up those Havana nights in 1957, those road trips with Ginsberg, those Andy Warhol films in which he starred, if he could have just held Wally once more for ten minutes. Five even.But alas, it is his curse to stumble across this globe alone, taking lesser women for his lovers, until the gods reunite him and Wally in their eternal prep-school bunkbedded bliss. American literature is saved only once a century. Neal Pollack has now saved it two centuries in a row. 205 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.

The Diary of a Submissive, Sophie Morgan
19 Sophie Morgan The Diary of a Submissive
Penguin Books 231960 Australia 2012 1405910631 / 9781405910637 Softcover Very Good Condition Sophie Morgan tells her true story in The Diary of a Submissive, the real-life Fifty Shades of Grey. Sophie Morgan is an independent woman in her thirties with a successful journalism career. Intelligent, witty and sarcastic, she could be the girl next door. Except that Sophie is a submissive; in the bedroom she likes to relinquish her power and personal freedom to a dominant man for their mutual pleasure. In the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey, here is a memoir that offers the real story of what it means to be a submissive. From the endorphin rush of her first spanking right through to punishments the likes of which she couldn't begin to imagine, she explains in frank and explicit fashion the road she travels. But it isn't until she meets James that her boundaries are really pushed. As her relationship with him travels into darker and darker places the question becomes: where will it end? Can she reconcile her sexuality with the rest of her life and is it possible for the perfect man to also be perfectly cruel? Racy, controversial, but always warm, fun and astoundingly honest, Sophie Morgan's The Diary of a Submissive is a fascinating and thought provoking look at a seemingly paradoxical side to human nature and sexuality that no man or woman will be able to put down. 314 pages.
