At twenty-two, Chicagoan Nadine Kenney is thrilled to meet her future husband, Jamie, while vacationing in Florida. After a whirlwind, long-distance romance, Nadine leaves her friends, family, and city to join Jamie in suburban Massachusetts. Once married, they begin trying for a baby without knowing how hard that road will become. Nadine soon faces the little-known horrors of IVF when a procedure causes severe internal bleeding, and she wakes up from emergency surgery with a six-inch scar instead of a baby bump. In the difficult year that follows, anxiety and additional failed fertility treatments threaten her new marriage and her mental state. By some saving grace, she eventually becomes pregnant naturally, but the horrors are not over: her son is diagnosed with potentially terminal kidney complications. Ultimately, Nadine learns that in an unpredictable life, the only thing she can be sure of is the healing power of hope.

In this memoir of fathers and sons, Gregory Martin struggles to reconcile the father he thought he knew with a man who has just survived a suicide attempt; a man who had been having anonymous affairs with men throughout his thirty-nine years of marriage; and who now must begin his life as a gay man. At a tipping point in our national conversation about gender and sexuality, rights and acceptance, Stories for Boys is about a father and a son finding a way to build a new relationship with one another after years of suppression and denial are given air and light. Martin’s memoir is quirky and compelling with its amateur photos and grab-bag social science and literary analyses. Gregory Martin explores the impact his father’s lifelong secrets have upon his life now as a husband and father of two young boys with humor and bracing candor. Stories for Boys is resonant with conflicting emotions and the complexities of family sympathy, and asks the questions: How well do we know the people that we think we know the best? And how much do we have to know in order to keep loving them?

War Memoirs 1917 1919

Author : Wilfred R. Bion

Bion's War Memoirs is perhaps the most exceptional piece of autobiography yet written by a psychoanalyst. The first section of the book is documentary, consisting of the entire text of the diaries which Bion wrote as a young man to record his experiences on the Western Front in 1917-1919. The photographs and diagrams with which he illustrated his recollections are also reproduced here. The diaries are followed by two later essays in the second part in which he reflects upon his wartime experiences. These meditations are influenced by his psychoanalytic training, and perhaps also suggest how his approach to psychoanalysis was influenced by his war-time experiences. Together, these diaries and essays provide a most moving picture of war and its effects.

In 1858, Jim Cobb is a young cadet entering Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. He's an earnest young man who has a natural ability with horses. Three years later Cobb grows up quickly. Reluctant to take sides in the impending war, he does not comprehend the staggering number of lives that will be lost during the coming conflict and that he will kill ten men. When North Carolina secedes, he joins the militia in his hometown. With a quick grasp of tactics and solid work ethic, Jim rises from company second lieutenant to third corps chief of staff and serves for two of the South's finest generals-Dorsey Pender and A. P. Hill. He commands the newly formed 78th North Carolina regiment at Petersburg, is captured, and is sent to Union prison. The misery of the tragic war is recounted through the eyes of Jim Cobb, Missy Morgan who loves him, and Sam Payne, a New York Tribune reporter Jim meets at John Brown's hanging.

This is the story of one man’s war—the memoirs of Sgt. Charles D. Kipp, who served with the Canadian army on active duty in Europe during the bloody days and weeks following D-Day. What makes this work stand out from other Second World War battlefield journals is its unadorned, almost naive sense—a guileless attention to small details, horrific and beautiful, that Kipp recalls from his experiences. First published in 2003, this is a must-read, not only for veterans of the War and military history buffs, but also for anyone who seeks to understand what ordinary soldiers endured during the Second World War. Charles d. Kipp was wounded nine times during ten months of fighting at the front during the Second World War. After the war, he farmed briefly before being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress syndrome and suffering a second heart attack. He passed away in January 2000.

MEMOIRS OF A SUPERHERO IN WAITING is the memoirs of Savannah Deville, a young woman whose coming of age story conveys the balance between choice and impulse, and the impossibility of finding clarity in either. Her perpetual, erratic motion makes her seem as if she could shoot off in any direction without warning. She is squarely placed in the midst of human suffering and comes of age through the rights of passage of heartache, indulgence and sometimes self-deprivation, all the while seeking her superhero strength to overcome all. Her very exciting journey takes her from love to lover to loathing to peace as she travels to the other side of the world (Taiwan at first) attempting to save herself. Her adventures and misadventures, strung together like a necklace displayed, are all connected with the thread of her heartstring worn like a badge of honor. She fleas to find inner peace. She questions the meaning of life and she travels, encountering strange hippies and urban survivalists along the way. She never despairs and so she clings to the hope that some day all may be saved and restored. Hence her steadfast belief that she is a superhero in waiting and that she will tap into her powers at any moment. Savannah is strong and intelligent, creative and lusty. The story of her life is adept at exploding expectations of a young woman who is a teacher and a reforming "good girl." She is a woman who is somewhat on the fringe of society in her experimental manner. She has left her daughter but not before as her journal is handed down to her to explore.

The Memoirs of John F. Kennedy: A Novel brings to life the tantalizing possibilities of "what might have been" had JFK remained president after November 22, 1963. This book imagines an America where progressive leadership takes hold during the 1960s, where President Kennedy, after a grueling fight for his life in a Dallas hospital, survives his chest wounds and returns to the presidency. He is elected for a second term. He does not mount a ground war in Vietnam. Foreign relations with Cuba, the Soviet Union, South America, and our allies and adversaries around the world follow a very different path. This novel interweaves a two-track story. One takes place in 1963 at Parkland Medical Center and follows Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover as they cope with the explosive events of the assassination attempt while the wounded president hovers near death. The other more lighthearted fictional story-line unfolds through the eyes of Patrick Hennessey, the memoirist appointed by JFK during the approaching end of his second term in 1968. Through in-depth talks at the White House, Camp David, Hyannisport, on Air Force One, and golfing on Kennedy's private course at Glen Ora, Patrick gets to know the president as he reviews his decisions regarding the difficult path toward a peaceful resolution of world crises. This well researched alternate history will strike a chord with readers worldwide-those fascinated with the Kennedy mystique and those interested in the potential for politics to be "done right" during challenging times. Considering the current period-and the 50th anniversary of JFK's election-re-imagining a more positive past may enable us to collectively envision a more enlightened future.
