In 1999 my husband and I asked my parents who were struggling with Alzheimer's and dementia, to come and live with our family. During the year they were in our home and the year my mother was in the nursing home, I wrote almost daily updates to my siblings, our out of state children, a cousin and a few friends, about the humorous, at times sad and once in awhile mysterious occurrences in their lives. I hope you, the reader, will enjoy these tales.

Hiding from the Nazis in the "Secret Annexe" of an old office building in Amsterdam, a thirteen-year-old girl named Anne Frank became a writer. The now famous diary of her private life and thoughts reveals only part of Anne's story, however. This book completes the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author. Tales from the Secret Annex is a complete collection of Anne Frank's lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel. Here, too, are portions of the diary originally withheld from publication by her father. By turns fantastical, rebellious, touching, funny, and heartbreaking, these writings reveal the astonishing range of Anne Frank's wisdom and imagination--as well as her indomitable love of life. Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex is a testaments to this determined young woman's extraordinary genius and to the persistent strength of the creative spirit.

Tales From The 1962 New York Mets

History set its sights on the 1962 Mets years before the original team ever donned its orange and blue flannels or swung for the Rheingold sign. That first season was destined for the record books as soon as the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants packed up and went west in 1957. Suddenly, the National League town had no National League team, and the city mourned. It took a passionate millionaire five years to bring National League baseball back to New York for a season that will be remembered forever. The team's 120 losses set a new major league record, but that was only half the charm of the Originals. Jilted fans had a team again, and what a team it was: All-Star Richie Ashburn, who quit baseball altogether after that sorry season rather than return to the Mets' losing ways; the quintessential "M.E.T.," Marvin Eugene Throneberry, who came to symbolize the sheer ineptness of the team; Jay Hook, as smart a pitcher as ever lost 19 games; fan favorite "Hot" Rod Kanehl, loved at least as much for his role in a spring training win over the traitorous Dodgers as for his hustle; ex-Dodgers Don Zimmer, Charlie Neal and Gil Hodges; and the Mets' $85,000 bonus baby, Ed Kranepool.

Bill Ball was born in Oakland, California on June 21st, 1915, but since his parents moved to Wheatland before he was a year old, he always considered that small farming community his hometown. Wheatland, population 500, forty miles north of Sacramento, was an ideal place to grow up. With fields, pastures, woods, and the Bear River close by, plenty of adventures could feed the imagination of a young boy. A deserted cabin discovered in the woods became a castle for Bill and his 11-year-old pals. They learned to swim in the river, drying off on the warm sand bar, then seeking shade under the willows. Chores included lawn mowing, hedge trimming, wood gathering, or helping in the machine shop and gas station. Attending high school during the Great Depression, Bill saw first hand how Wheatland residents struggled to maintain a decent living. Graduating in 1933 with a class of fourteen ended what had been an idyllic adventure and it was off to the big city, Sacramento, to study engineering. College opened up a brand new world as he studied descriptive geometry, calculus, land surveying, and mechanical design. Bill's talent for music found expression in a dance band, where he played saxophone and clarinet. After completing the program in Sacramento, Bill moved on to Berkeley to attend the University of California, furthering his engineering studies and still playing the sax. Spending summers working survey parties and having part-time design jobs prepared Bill for his first post-college career assignment. Going to work for the Henry J. Kaiser company in 1938, he took a giant step, relocating to Mason City, Washington where Grand Coulee Dam was being constructed. Leaving a fiance behind in Oakland was tough, but the starting salary was persuasive and the opportunity priceless. Thus began a forty-year engineering career that took him all across the United States and around the world. The war years found Bill back in California working for Kaiser in the Richmond shipyards where more than 400 ships were built in 4 years. He married Helen Hederman in 1940, and their two daughters were born in those lean but exciting years. With civil and mechanical professional engineering licenses in hand, Bill embraced every new challenging assignment from dams to dredging, from automobile plants to aluminum smelters, from water reservoirs to rapid transit systems. He started as a junior engineer and was Vice President and Chief Engineer with Kaiser Engineers and Constructors when he retired in 1979. In Tales from a Grandfather, dedicated to his two granddaughters and their grandmother, Bill relates stories of his boyhood, college years that were filled with learning about engineering, a joyous career that took him around the world, and the love he and his wife shared during 64 years of marriage. Bill still lives in Oakland near one daughter and granddaughter, meets regularly with colleagues from Kaiser, and is currently working on developing several short stories and a novel."

In these eleven intersecting stories, Rohinton Mistry reveals the rich, complex patterns of life inside a Bombay apartment building. The occupants - from Jaakaylee, the ghost-seer, through Najami, the only owner of a refrigerator in Firozsha Baag, to Rustomji the Curmudgeon and Kersi, the boy whose life threads through the book - all express, knowingly or unknowingly, the tensions between the past and the present, between the old world and the new. Compassionate and extremely funny, Tales from Firozsha Baag illuminates the meaning of change through the brilliantly textured mosaic of seemingly ordinary lives. 'Mistry's joyful notation of the world reminds us that description is one of fiction's first and gravest tasks.' Guardian 'A fine collection . . . the volume is informed by a tone of gentle compassion for seemingly insignificant lives.' New York Times
