Don't tell her she needs to find closure. Don't ask her to forgive and forget.When Kim was just 22, her older brother, Ron Goldman, was brutally killed by O.J. Simpson. Ron and Kim were very close, and her devastation was compounded by the shocking not guilty verdict that allowed a smirking Simpson to leave as a free man.It wasn't Kim's first trauma. Her parents divorced when she was young, and she and Ron were raised by their father. Her mother kidnapped her, telling her that her father didn't love her any more. When she was 14, she was almost blinded from severe battery acid burns on her face during an automobile accident, requiring three reconstructive surgeries.But none of these early traumas compared to the loss of her brother, the painful knowledge that his killer was free, and fact that she could not even grieve privately--her grief was made painfully public. Counseled by friends, strangers, and even Oprah to "find closure," Kim chose a different route. She chose to fight.Repeatedly, Kim and her family pursued Simpson by every legal means. Foiled over and over again, they ultimately achieved a small measure of justice.Kim's story is one of tragedy, but also of humanity and, often, comedy. Living life as one of America's most famous "victims" isn't always easy, especially as a single mother in the dating market. She often had bizarre first date experiences, with one man even breaking down into tears and inconsolable with grief after realizing who she was.Ultimately Kim's story is that of an ordinary person thrown into extraordinary circumstances at a very young age, and who had the courage-despite the discouragement of so many--to ignore the conventional wisdom and never give up her fight for justice.

In her stunning memoir, Wendy Lawless tells the often heartbreaking tale of her unconventional upbringing with an unstable alcoholic and suicidal mother--a real-life Holly Golightly turned Mommie Dearest--and the uncommon sense of resilience that allowed her to rise above it all.Georgann Rea didn't bake cookies or go to PTA meetings; she wore a mink coat and always had a lit Dunhill plugged into her cigarette holder. She'd slept with too many men and a few women, and she didn't like dogs or children. Georgann possessed the icy beauty of a Hitchcock heroine with the cold heart to match.From living at the Dakota in 1960s Manhattan to London's swinging town houses and beyond, Wendy Lawless and her younger sister navigated day-to-day life as their unstable and fabulously neglectful mother, Georgann, chased her delusions, suffered dramatic breakdowns, and survived suicide attempts. With clear-eyed grace and flashing wit, Lawless portrays the highs and lows of her unhinged upbringing--and how she survived her mother's endlessly destructive search for glamour and fulfillment--in "a searing memoir that reads like a novel" (Anne Korkeakivi, An Unexpected Guest).

Do you like to know the unspoken conversations going on around you when visiting other countries? Are you someone who likes to travel on your own terms-from finding that special restaurant to negotiating a better price for a prized antique in a local flea market? If so, Decoding China is the hands-on communication guide for you!Decoding China will teach you the basic "rules of the road" on how to operate in Chinese culture. Like every country, China has its own unique set of cultural "codes," ways of behaving on a daily basis that all Chinese automatically know are the norms. These codes frame every personal interaction in China, and carry with them subtle cultural expectations that the Chinese assume everyone else knows. By learning to recognize these key codes, words and phrases-and using them correctly-then everything you do in China will go a lot more smoothly.By drawing on extensive cultural and linguistic expertise, Dr. Christensen explains the key Chinese cultural codes and how to use these to your advantage. In practical chapters organized by topic, he shows you how to get things done in China, even with very minimal knowledge of the language. Being aware of the cultural norms and a few key words and phrases will give you tremendous confidence, and allow you to "crack the code" and achieve whatever you want. Decoding China will make your China experience work for you, rather than against you, wherever you travel in the country.
