Summary Book and excerpt Living to Tell the Tale :
Download or Read book Living to Tell the Tale written by Jane Taylor McDonnell and published by Penguin Books. This book was released on 1998-03-01 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: "Writing is a second chance at life," writes Jane McDonnell. "I think all writing constitutes an effort to establish our own meaningfulness, even in the midst of sadness and disappointment." In Living to Tell the Tale, McDonnell draws on this impulse, as well as on her own experiences as a writer and teacher of memoir, to give us what should become the definitive book on writing "crisis memoirs" and other kinds of personal narrative. She provides specific techniques and advice to help the writer discover his or her inner voice, recognize—and then silence—the inner censor, begin a narrative, and develop it with such aids as photographs and documents. Citing many landmark works such as Maxine Hong Kingston's The Woman Warrior and Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes, as well as unpublished writings, McDonnell shows how writers can recreate past experiences through memories, and imaginatively reshape material into the story that needs to be told. Each chapter concludes with exercises to help the writer grapple with particular problems, such as trying to write about experiences that are only partly recalled. McDonnell also offers a list of recommended reading. • Memoirs, such as Mary Karr's The Liars' Club (Penguin) have hit bestseller lists nationwide during the past year, and are of great interest to aspiring writers.

Download or Read book Scientoonic Tell-Tale of Genome and DNA written by and published by I. K. International Pvt Ltd. This book was released on 2013-12-30 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Scientoonics is a new discipline in science that deals with science communication by using a novel class of science cartoons called scientoons. These are essentially cartoons based on scientific concepts, discoveries, results, and their applications. The present book is an effort with entirely novel approach in communication of scientific facts in their true perspective. It will not only help the common man to acquaint himself with the scientific jargon but also make him understand how best we can make use of such facts in our day-to-day life. Recent advances in scientific research, in fact, demand pro-active efforts from the scientists so that complex ideas reach to the people effectively. The present book has essentially tried, through Scientoons, to depict present concerns brought forward by the recent explosion of knowledge, especially the knowledge about Human Genome and related areas. This collection of scientoons has addressed areas such as DNA, DNA fingerprinting, Human Genome, Conservation of Wildlife, etc. The authors have elaborated on the scientific aspect of the scientoons and have taken an opportunity to provide information that would not only help the readers in appreciating the spirit and the humor in scientoons but also enrich their knowledge about scientific advances which are taking place around the world. Each scientoon is therefore associated with a text that narrates the serious part of the science or its applications. This book is an endeavor to reduce the gap between the excitement of some of the scientific advances in science of the present time and the curious readers who want to know more about science

Download or Read book Merlyn's Mind written by Richard H. Orndorff and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2008-04-25 with total page 522 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Merlyn's Mind completes the original trilogy of segmented story-dreams by the sixth century Merlyn, the Scotsman. The Present, real time story-dream brothers, Robert the poet and Richard the writer, continue their theoretical discussions in real time from May 2007 into late February 2008. The Past, with Grandma's Stories begin with Lady Allowyn and Sir Geoffrey in the sixteenth century and works her way into the twentieth century where Grandma Earth ends her genealogical narratives with the nineteen year olds Robert and Richard Graystone and their future wives, Connie and Cindy Bleacher, at the dining room table celebrating the late FDR's January birthday with their respective parents and grandparents, first in 1960, then again in 1961. Thus, old Grandma completes word-filled human snapshots, fruitfully linking the Graystone and Bleacher generations from 12,000 years ago in the first book to the present, 2008, in the third book. Merlyn's suggestive Future, titled 'Pouch Text,' concludes with all the major characters alive but one. The family group ( a mixture of human beings and their physically and mentally human-like marsupial counterparts from HomePlanets across the Milky Way galaxy) focus on raising seven year old Diplomat, a hybrid of both species and cultures, on Earth.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: John, aged sixty, suffered a stroke and recovered fully, except in one respect: although he can see perfectly, he can no longer recognise faces, even his own reflection in a mirror. Whenever Francesca touches a particular texture, she experiences a vivid emotion: denim = extreme sadness; wax = embarrassment; orange peel = shock. Jimmie, whose left arm was recently amputated, can still feel it - and it's itchy. Our brains are the most enchanting and complex things in the known universe - but what happens when they go wrong? Dr V. S. Ramachandran, 'the Sherlock Holmes of brain science' and one of the world's leading neuroscientists, has spent a lifetime working with patients who suffer from rare and baffling brain conditions. In The Tell-Tale Brain, he tells their stories, and explores what they reveal about the greatest mystery of them all: how our minds work, and what makes each of us so uniquely human.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: The life and work of Edgar Allan Poe spices up this culinary mystery from the author of Final Fondue. Includes recipes! It’s a cold January in the Chesapeake Bay area, but Cool Down Café manager Val Deniston has plenty to sweat over—like catering a book club event, testing recipes for her Granddad’s cookbook, and catching the author of a deadly tale of murder . . . The last thing Val needs in her life is an unsolved murder, especially when the victim, an actor famed for impersonating Edgar Allan Poe, happens to be dressed exactly like her Granddad. To keep an eye on Granddad, whose latest job takes him to the home of Rick Usher, a local author inspired by Poe, Val gets herself hired as a cook in Rick’s House of Usher. When she discovers the actor wasn’t the only one doing an impersonation, separating the innocent from the murderous becomes a real-life horror story. But Val must decipher a killer’s M.O. sooner rather than later . . . or she can forget about finding poetic justice. Includes 6 delicious five-ingredient recipes! Praise for the Five-Ingredient Mysteries “Cozy mystery readers will love the puzzle and the enjoyable look into this small tourist town by the sea.”—Nancy Coco, author of the Candy-Coated Mysteries “Suspects abound and the puzzle solution is deftly handled in this charming cozy . . . With recipes included, this is definitely a starter for fans of Diane Mott Davidson, Lou Jane Temple, and Virginia Rich.”—Library Journal “Corrigan keeps her simple mixture of pleasant characters, murder, and recipes in the oven.”—Kirkus Reviews

Download or Read book The Tell-Tale Signs of Spiritual Growth written by Abi Popoola and published by Xulon Press. This book was released on 2008-06 with total page 110 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: In the birthing of a miracle or blessing, you must have equipped yourself with the reason, or the record of God, detailing that you are entitled to such a blessing, before making your request known to God. (Hebrews 11:6) "Without faith (His evidence that He can do what you came for, His testimony that you are eligible to ask for it, the record of His capability) it is impossible to please God...." So, it is your evidence or testimony of what God can do that should prompt you to come to God in the first place. Testimonies, therefore, are not an account of what has happened, but is the living account of what He said He will do for anyone that believes in Him. They are the account of His faithfulness and dependability for anyone who will obey His word and do them as commanded. Testimonies in our church, COTR-UK, should not be a recall of an event, but a recall of His faithfulness. Pastor Abi is the Senior Pastor and Founder of CHURCH ON THE ROCK UK, an evangelical and Pentecostal commission that started on January 15, 2005. The church is growing in the Southend-On-Sea area of Essex, UK. Pastor Abi is a qualified Medical Doctor and his best area of field was in Cardiology. He is married to Pastor Nike Popoola, a General Practitioner in training, and they started the church with their lovely bundles of joy, Abraham, Victor, and Victoria, their children. Pastor Abi was commissioned as a Pastor in 1993 and since then, has been privilege to Pastor churches both at the Universities and in the local communities of Ogun State, Nigeria and in London, UK; as a Mission Pastor to Barcelona, Spain.
