"The Shadow of the Father" - one of the most important books of Jan Dobraczynski, is based on the record of the Gospel, the evangelical text. It shows Joseph, the guardian of the Holy Family as a human being subjected to obedience to God and his intentions, a man who must understand and accept his part of being a shadow of the true Father of Jesus who will be born by his Miriam-chosen to him by God. Joseph, a native of Bethlehem, heir to the heritage of kings David and Solomon and the noble tribe of Judah, is up to Nazareth in search of the woman for whom he will sacrifice his life. Over there he meets a charming, friendly, yet mysterious girl named Miriam. However, starting to understand that between Miriam and him stands an impetuous force of abysmal proportions, as God's fist, will make their relationship continue unexpected ways: the One Who will be born and Who will become the liberator of the people scattered and oppressed in Israel.The book gives testimony to the values that never lose their importance: family, responsibility, patience, and true love."

"In the Shadow of My Father" is the final installment in the trilogy of the Culhane family. In Book I "The Flowers of Eire" and Book II "Rory" we have journeyed from their humble beginnings in Ardara, County Donegal, Ireland to 19th Century England and Australia. In this last of the three novellas, Rory Culhane's son, Sergei, grows into manhood, beginning his studies in medicine, as did his father. After being wounded during Jameson's Raid in pre-Boer War South Africa, he returns home, falling in love with and marrying Edwina Gordon. She bears him two sons, Edwin and Thomas. Edwin follows in the Culhane men's footsteps, studying medicine. After his tour of duty aboard the HMS Furious in the World War I Royal Navy, he returns to Melbourne, resuming his life. Thomas, Edwin's younger brother, veers from the well-trodden path of his family and enters the priesthood, finally returning to take a post at the church in his ancestor's home town of Ardara. This family saga spans the years from the mid-nineteenth century to 1928 and returns the Culhanes full-circle to their roots.

"When a stranger arrives with a message that the Lord of Dewanne has died and appointed Volle's son Yilon his heir, the young fox realizes that there are worse places than Divalia. Dewanne is one of the most remote cities in Tephos, in a mountainous province where foxes rule and mice are relegated to menial jobs and a slum outside the main city. Which makes it more difficult for Yilon to explain why his companion, Sinch, is a mouse. Ever the schemer, Yilon hatches a plan to get sent home to Vinton. His plan quickly goes awry, as he finds that even in a backwards town, there are complicated politics, family betrayals, and ancient blood feuds, old wounds that his clumsy acts have reopened. With two different groups trying to kill him, and even the foxes on his side alienated by his attitude, he has nowhere to turn but Sinch. But Sinch has run afoul of a band of thieves in the mouse slums and now has his own death threats to deal with, not to mention the hatred of a city of foxes. Yilon will need all the stubbornness and cleverness he's inherited from his father just to survive to the next sunrise, let alone save his inheritance, his friend, and his new city."--Back cover.

Though born in America, Eddie Constantine is perhaps best remembered as a film actor in France and Germany, playing the role of a hardboiled detective named "Lemmy Caution" and appearing in films by Jean-Luc Godard, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and Lars von Trier. In the process of transitioning Constantine from the star of B-movies to the epicenter of the Nouvelle Vague, Jean-Luc Godard reconsecrated him as the solemn and impassive star of his extraordinary film, Alphaville. Eddie's unruffled charm, winning smile, and American credentials made him virtually untouchable. Europeans liked Constantine because he wasn't a pretty face-he had savoir faire. Constantine's daughter Tanya traveled with him throughout much of his career, and this book comes from her perspective of their troubled familial relationship. It is a testament to his legend that Constantine emerges from the candor of his daughter's autobiography somehow strengthened by her revelations of the compulsions and insecurities he made those closest to him suffer. This book presents us with universal truths about the difficulties experienced within family relationships and takes us behind the curtain of celebrity and the fixed smiles of publicity photos in a way few books ever do. I had a most unusual upbringing being the child of a celebrity. My childhood was a unique situation that only people who had experienced it could comprehend. My father was a superstar and singer in Europe in the 1950s and '60s. He and I recorded a song called "The Man and The Child" that sold over a million records in France alone, when I was just eleven years old, thus making me a celebrity too. When superstardom set in, a crazy atmosphere had overtaken our household, as fame creates pressure, fear of loss, and resentment. My father's estate became an open house to international celebrities who came to visit. Despite the fame and fortune that became part of my life, I ran away from home before the age of sixteen with the man who later became my first husband. I have spent my entire life attempting to release the pain of my upbringing.
