Summary:

Broken Wings is mainstream fiction. It is the extraordinary story of Daniel Surefire Lasky an Apache-raised tracker and lion-killing Big Game Hunter who is commissioned to find the grave of a missionary last seen in Northern Rhodesia, 30 years before. What starts out as a search for a missing priest, grows into a dangerous mission, evolving into a quest for existential meaning. What Surefire finds in Africas cursed Shinshika Mountains will change forever his cynical world view and cavalier lifestyle. This powerful and inspiring story, filled with drama, adventure, passion and love, is set to become another international bestseller for Keverne a natural story-teller whose talent is richly expressed in this unique book. ACCLAIM FOR GLORY KEVERNES A MAN CANNOT CRY. A PEOPLE magazines Top Ten Book of the Year in America. A BOOKSELLERS Most Promising Title in Britain. A MAN CANNOT CRY is the finest first novel I have ever handled (including THE COLLECTOR by John Fowles, and THE WATER IS WIDE by Pat Conroy). Close to 50 years in publishing as a writer, editor and agent and I have never heard such a story of how a relatively uneducated girl of eighteen in a little copper mining town in Northern Rhodesia, married to a miner, began a powerful first novel of 500,000 words (before cutting), and spent years writing it under the most amazing circum- stances. I have never been as overwhelmed by a first novel. She is simply a born story teller. Julian Bach, New York Agent and a former editor of LIFE magazine. Gloria, you have a wonderful novel here. It moved me to tears and its editing has been a labor of love for me. A Man Cannot Cry has given me great pleasure and I thank you for it. Eventually the world will too. Hillel Black, William Morrow, USA. This excellent novel is an African answer to THE THORN BIRDS. With first rate characterization and an unusual and ingenious plot, the combination of Africa, the Quaker settlement and medicine, is exceptionally good. P Parkin, HarperCollins, UK. A MAN CANNOT CRY pulses with the life of Northern Rhodesia and all Africa besides. The story begins in 1958 with the arrival of Dr Than Profane at a Quaker mission to see his dying father. He does not intend to stay but before long he is taking Africa like a drug and thriving like cut grass growing wild He quickly earns the affectionate name Bwana Cowboy. His methods and sometimes his morals are characteristically American, rough-hewn, deaf to both danger and defeat Inevitably he clashes with his conservative hosts. But he does much better with the local tribes there is a wonderful passage where he is trained as a witchdoctor and some of the books finest characters, lovingly portrayed, are African The book is alive with people, places, and their interactions: births and deaths in squalid hut and shiny hospital, cruel savages and a tame leopard; the glory of a canoe trip on the Zambezi and a white man dressing as a witchdoctor to fight a smallpox epidemic; and in the background the murmuring voices of a changing Africa, Lumumba, Tshombe, Kasavubu, Kaunda. A MAN CANNOT CRY dramatizes all the conflicts and parallels between the white world and the black, the old Africa and the new, the familiar and the alien, the uncertain fears of the mind and the sure knowledge of the heart. Long, rich and detailed, it is a wonderful book. Alan Ryan, THE WASHINGTON POST. An enormous array of human emotion is

Summary:

'Stay Healthy, Be Happy, Live Longer' addresses the reality that tens of millions of ordinary people are allowing heart disease, and other related conditions such as obesity, diabetes and blood pressure, to creep up on them and impact their lives detrimentally. Not because they don't know how to keep them at bay -we all know that already-, but because they cannot sustain the rigorous day-to-day lifestyle changes recommended by the medical profession and indeed, with the best of intentions, by most of the other books on the subject. It faces squarely the reality that old habits can be deep-rooted and new lifestyle changes difficult to make permanent. Uniquely it gently motivates the reader to make whatever degree of change they are able to habitualize. It provides the readers with a clear understanding of the benefits to be gained from making the changes, and a practical methodology of change that can ebb and flow in harmony with the readers' own natural tendencies and preferences.

Summary:

In the early 1960s, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater was a small, multi-racial company of dancers that performed the works of its founding choreographer and other emerging artists. By the late 1960s, the company had become a well-known African American artistic group closely tied to the Civil Rights struggle. In Dancing Revelations, Thomas DeFrantz chronicles the troupe's journey from a small modern dance company to one of the premier institutions of African American culture. He not only charts this rise to national and international renown, but also contextualizes this progress within the civil rights, women's rights, and gay rights struggles of the late 20th century. DeFrantz examines the most celebrated Ailey dances, including Revelations, drawing on video recordings of Ailey's dances, published interviews, oral histories, and his own interviews with former Ailey company dancers. Through vivid descriptions and beautiful illustrations, DeFrantz reveals the relationship between Ailey's works and African American culture as a whole. He illuminates the dual achievement of Ailey as an artist and as an arts activist committed to developing an African American presence in dance. He also addresses concerns about how dance performance is documented, including issues around spectatorship and the display of sexuality, the relationship of Ailey's dances to civil rights activism, and the establishment and maintenance of a successful, large-scale Black Arts institution. Throughout Dancing Revelations, DeFrantz illustrates how Ailey combined elements of African dance with motifs adapted from blues, jazz, and Broadway to choreograph his dances. By re-interpreting these tropes of black culture in his original and well-received dances, DeFrantz argues that Ailey played a significant role in defining the African American cultural canon in the twentieth century. As the first book to examine the cultural sources and cultural impact of Ailey's work, Dancing Revelations is an important contribution to modern dance history and criticism as well as African-American studies.
