DOROTHY GARLOCK...is a New York Times extended list bestselling author, "a gifted writer" (Chicago Sun-Times) who celebrates the indomitable American spirit and the triumphs of the caring heart. Now she vividly portrays the era after World War II, when men and women torn apart by years of combat had to rebuild marriages and lives... Rawlings, Oklahoma, 1945. Johnny Henry is coming home from the Pacific, and his estranged wife, Kathleen, secretly watches him step off the train to a hero's welcome.

Summary:

Une révélation littéraire comme on en voit rarement. Épique, tendre, cruelle, traversant toute la deuxième moitié du xxe siècle, une œuvre bouleversante qui, à travers le désir d'ascension d'une femme, interroge l'American Dream et rappelle les plus belles heures du grand roman américain. De son enfance dans un minuscule appartement du Queens d'après-guerre, fille unique d'un père camionneur idole du quartier, et d'une mère qui noyait sa mélancolie à grands coups de scotch, Eileen Tumulty a tiré un principe : toujours viser plus haut, ne jamais renoncer à sortir de sa condition. Faire des études, décrocher un diplôme d'infirmière : Eileen s'accroche, s'endurcit. Tomber amoureuse, épouser Ed : Eileen s'envole, elle a de l'ambition pour deux. Donner naissance à un fils, trouver la maison de ses rêves, former une vraie famille : Eileen veut encore plus, encore mieux. Et pourtant... Les rêves ne sont-ils jamais que des rêves ? Sentir la menace, redouter le pire, se révéler dans l'épreuve. Et puis choisir de continuer à vivre, malgré tout.

Summary:

"Let's have a parade" is the phrase that begins a beloved American tradition, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. In 1924, employees of the R. H. Macy and Company store in Herald Square, many of whom were immigrants and first-generation Americans, chose to give thanks for their good fortune in a manner reminiscent of the festive parades held in their native countries. The excitement and praise from crowds lining the route that first year led Macy's to issue an immediate proclamation: the parade would become a tradition. Before the parade's first decade passed, Macy's welcomed the huge and spectacular helium character balloons that became its goodwill ambassadors. Since then, the parade has become a world-famous treasure. Through rare and historic images, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade offers readers a chance to reminisce, explore, and delight in eighty years of this thoroughly American celebration.

Summary:

During the Golden Age of the Broadway musical, few director-choreographers could infuse a new musical with dance and movement in quite the way Gower Champion could. From his earliest Broadway success with Bye Bye Birdie to his triumphant and bittersweet valedictory, 42nd Street, musicals directed by Champion filled the proscenium with life. At their best, they touched the heart and stirred the soul with a skillful blend of elegance and American showmanship. He began his career as one-half of "America's Youngest Dance Team" with Jeanne Tyler and later teamed with his wife, dance partner, and longtime collaborator, Marge Champion. This romantic ballroom duo danced across America in the smartest clubs and onto the television screen, performing story dances that captivated the country. They ultimately took their talent to Hollywood, where they starred in the 1951 remake of Show Boat, Lovely to Look At, and other films. But Broadway always called to Champion, and in 1959 he was tapped to direct Bye Bye Birdie. The rest is history. In shows like Birdie, Carnival, Hello, Dolly!, I Do! I Do!, Sugar, and 42nd Street, luminaries such as Chita Rivera, Dick Van Dyke, Carol Channing, Mary Martin, Robert Preston, Tony Roberts, Robert Morse, Tammy Grimes, and Jerry Orbach brought Champion's creative vision to life. Working with composers and writers like Jerry Herman, Michael Stewart, Charles Strouse, Lee Adams, and Bob Merrill, he streamlined the musical making it flow effortlessly with song and dance from start to finish. John Gilvey has spoken with many of the people who worked with Champion, and in Before the Parade Passes By he tells the life story of this most American of Broadway musical director-choreographers from his early days dancing with Marge to his final days spent meticulously honing the visual magic of 42nd Street. Before the Parade Passes By is the life story of one man who personified the glory of the Broadway musical right up until the moment of his untimely death. When the curtain fell to thunderous applause on the opening night of 42nd Street, August 25, 1980, legendary impresario David Merrick came forward, silenced the audience, and announced that Champion had died that morning. As eminent theatre critic Ethan Mordden has firmly put it, "the Golden Age was over." Though the Golden Age of the Broadway musical is over, John Gilvey brings it to life again by telling the story of Gower Champion, one of its most passionate and creative legends.

Summary:

At the end of the Lewis and Clark Exposition in 1905, the president of the Portland Street Fair and Carnival Association, E.W. Rowe, presented the idea of an annual festival to Portland mayor Harry Lane. From that idea came the first Rose Festival, called the Rose Carnival and Fiesta, held June 20–22, 1907. It was hailed as a huge success. “There is no reason in the world why Portland should not hold a rose festival every year,” remarked the Oregonian on June 21. “Everyone will be happier and better all the rest of the year for the festival of roses.” And indeed, that has been the case. From just a three-day event, the Rose Festival has expanded over the years to include many activities covering several months every spring and summer.

Summary:

I want to show how two people meeting at a very young age and with very little support from adults and family locked hands and kept pushing forward. We persevered in spite of many obstacles, most of which we never thoroughly understood, and stayed together. We were really blessed from the beginning but we didnt acknowledge our Creator until much later in our relationship. It was later in our life that we looked back and began to try and count our Blessings. It was regrettable after the fact to acknowledge Our Creator when we realized that all of the good times we had been gifted with had to be from Him. In summation, this is intended to provide our children a post childhood look back through time so that they may have a more comprehensive understanding of who their mother really was and how much she gave throughout six decades. It was her love and self-sacrifice that held our family together through all of our troubles. It seemed that it was meant to be and if there is any merit to soul mates finding each other, in this life, this was a profound example.

Summary:

After Lee and Grant met at Appomatox Court House in 1865 to sign the document ending the long and bloody Civil War, the South at last had to face defeat as the dream of a Confederate nation melted into the Lost Cause. Through an examination of memoirs, personal papers, and postwar Confederate rituals such as memorial day observances, monument unveilings, and veterans' reunions, Ghosts of the Confederacy probes into how white southerners adjusted to and interpreted their defeat and explores the cultural implications of a central event in American history. Foster argues that, contrary to southern folklore, southerners actually accepted their loss, rapidly embraced both reunion and a New South, and helped to foster sectional reconciliation and an emerging social order. He traces southerners' fascination with the Lost Cause--showing that it was rooted as much in social tensions resulting from rapid change as it was in the legacy of defeat--and demonstrates that the public celebration of the war helped to make the South a deferential and conservative society. Although the ghosts of the Confederacy still haunted the New South, Foster concludes that they did little to shape behavior in it--white southerners, in celebrating the war, ultimately trivialized its memory, reduced its cultural power, and failed to derive any special wisdom from defeat.

Summary:

À l'aube du 19 mars 1979, la petite ville de Rivière-Fangeuse est en ébullition : après dix ans de prison, Gu Shan, une ancienne garde rouge, va être exécutée. Son crime ? Avoir douté du parti. Et la mort n'est pas le pire de ce qu'elle va devoir subir. Cet événement va avoir des répercussions sur ses concitoyens : le professeur Gu, son père, un intellectuel qui se réfugie dans le passé pour échapper à un monde qu'il ne comprend plus, et son épouse, jusque-là humble et soumise, qui va relever la tête pour défendre sa fille ; Bashi, un adolescent tourmenté qui noue une relation improbable avec Nini, une petite infirme affamée ; Kai, voix officielle du parti, qui va sacrifier famille et carrière pour l'amour d'un dissident ; et bien d'autres... Cruauté d'une société déboussolée, où l'idéologie marxiste n'a pas effacé les vieilles superstitions, où les liens familiaux sont rongés par la misère et l'endoctrinement, où l'implacable machine à décerveler n'en finit plus de broyer les individus qui tentent de résister.

Summary:

"Why a fictional memoir and why the arcane language? . . . to tell a story about a youth who is mentally a pre-teenager while physically developing as an adult? Because the works I admire most seem to fall into that literary genre: Marcel Proust, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Lawrence Durrell, and more recent writings like Robert Pirsigs Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and like Dave Eggers A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. And because the youth, Vaney, expressed himself in arcane phrases like mama gift it to me and meaningful body language as well as mysterious seizures. Finally, why self-publish? Because the publishing industry may not yet be ready for major changes as it was unready for Proust, Joyce and others. Zahn Pesh hopes you enjoy this book."
