Memo

by Melissa Mcclone

Note to self: when stepping back into your billionaire boss's world: -- Remember why you turned him down all those years ago: because infamous playboys like Drake Llewelyn are trouble with a capital T! -- He plays to win. You can't afford to take a gamble on love and lose, no matter how much he says he's changed. -- So arm yourself against his movie-star looks, devastating charm, intoxicating smile. . . Oh, no! This is going to be so much harder than I thought!

A Memoir of Grief (Continued)

by Jennifer Weiner

A haunting, original eStory from Jennifer Weiner.When Eleanor Goode meets Gerald King, she's a senior at Wellesley who's won all the writing prizes.

How she would become the fetcher of coffee, the holder of trinkets fans would press into his hands after readings, the keeper of his legacy. A Memoir of Grief (Continued) begins with Gerald's death. Ellie, who hasn't written more than a grocery list in decades of marriage, had no intention of writing a memoir. It's not until she realizes how broke he left her that she decides to write a whitewashed account of her life with the Great Man of Letters. Widow's Walk spends over a year on the New York Times bestseller list. Critics hail Ellie's talent, the revelatory way she writes about grief, and how to live through it.

Memoirs

by John Waters Tennessee Williams

For the "old crocodile," as Williams called himself late in life, the past was always present, and so it is with his continual shifting and intermingling of times, places, and memories as he weaves this story. When Memoirs was first published in 1975, it created quite a bit of turbulence in the mediathough long self-identified as a gay man, Williams' candor about his love life, sexual encounters, and drug use was found shocking in and of itself, and such revelations by America's greatest living playwright were called "a raw display of private life" by The New York Times Book Review. As it turns out, thirty years later, Williams' look back at his life is not quite so scandalous as it once seemed; he recalls his childhood in Mississippi and St. Louis, his prolonged struggle as a "starving artist," the "overnight" success of The Glass Menagerie in 1945, the death of his long-time companion Frank Merlo in 1962, and his confinement to a psychiatric ward in 1969 and subsequent recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, all with the same directness, compassion, and insight that epitomize his plays. And, of course, Memoirs is filled with Williams' amazing friends from the worlds of stage, screen, and literature as heoften hilariously, sometimes fondly, sometimes notremembers them: Laurette Taylor, Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, Elia Kazan, Marlon Brando, Vivian Leigh, Carson McCullers, Anna Magnani, Greta Garbo, Elizabeth Taylor, and Tallulah Bankhead to name a few. And now film director John Waters, well acquainted with shocking the American public, has written an introduction that gives some perspective on the various reactions to Tennessee's Memoirs, while also paying tribute to a fellow artist who inspired many with his integrity and endurance.

Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist

by Yossi Klein Halevi

From Yossi Klein Halevi--the critically acclaimed author of Like Dreamers, winner of the Jewish Book Council's Everett Family Foundation Jewish Book of the Year Award--comes a memoir, published in paperback for the first time with a new introduction, about his journey from Jewish extremism to interfaith reconciliation.The child of a Holocaust survivor, Yossi Klein Halevi grew up in 1960s Brooklyn perceiving reality through the lens of his family's brutal past. Determined to take action--and seek retribution--he became a disciple of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane and a member of the radical fringe of the American Jewish community.In this wry and moving account, Halevi explores the deep-rooted anger of his adolescence and early adulthood that fueled his militant politics. He reveals how he began to question his beliefs and see the world from his own clear perspective, freeing himself from being a hostage to rage.Speaking to a new generation struggling to understand what it means to be Jewish in America, Memoirs of a Jewish Extremist explains how such a transform-ation can happen--giving hope that peaceful coexistence among faiths is possible.

Memoirs of a Nun

by Denis Diderot

Memoirs of a Nun, which began as a joke and grew into a masterpiece, was one of the loudest salvos fired in the continuing battles between the clergy and the intelligentsia which defined so much of eighteenth-century French history. Diderot's story of a novice held in a convent against her will and forced to undergo curious spiritual and sexual trials displays all the brilliance, icy wit, and worldliness of the Enlightenment at its best.

Memoirs of a Spiritual Outsider

by Suzanne Clores

'Speaking practically, exploring six different spiritual paths is not the fastest nor the simplest route to the essence of one's inner being. But taking an assortment of back-roads provided me with a variety of experiences and put me in contact with many women pursuing the same end: individual connection with God. ... Most impressively, each woman I met was able to move beyond the first and perhaps the greatest obstacle, doubt, and approach the endlessly demanding feat of keeping her desire and passion alive and in focus." From the introduction: In Memoirs of a Spiritual Outsider, Suzanne Clores leads us through her struggle to bring spirituality into her life. While hers is a personal quest, it also reflects that of a whole generation of young people who are cut off from spirituality yet long for it in some vague, unarticulated way. Out of college and in the workforce, Suzanne Clores identifies the longing she feels as a spiritual yearning, but like many of her peers she has a difficult time wholeheartedly embracing any religion. In this book, she presents a moving account of a pilgrimage across America that led her to a variety of religious traditions: Buddhism, Wicca, Yoga, Sufism, Shamanism, and Voodoo. Along the way, she encounters individuals who have embraced these "outsider" traditions, each of whom she follows, at least for a time, in hope of finding her own spiritual path. Cultivating a spiritual practice while living among hip, urbane Generation X-ers is "as unpopular as letter writing," she muses. Yet she perseveres, and her story, along with the stories of the people she meets, offers us a fascinating glimpse into the hearts and minds of the next generation of seekers who are looking for meaning in a secular world.

The Memoirs of a Survivor

by Doris Lessing

In a beleaguered city where rats and roving gangs terrorize the streets, where government has broken down and meaningless violence holds sway, a woman -- middle-aged and middle-class -- is brought a twelve-year-old girl and told that it is her responsibility to raise the child. This book, which the author has called "an attempt at autobiography," is that woman's journal -- a glimpse of a future only slightly more horrendous than our present, and of the forces that alone can save us from total destruction.

Memoirs of an Exorcist

by Marco Tosatti Father Gabriele Amorth

Father Amorth was chief exorcist of the Vatican for twenty-five years, but few people know that before he became a priest, Amorth served in the pro-Allied Italian forces during World War II and earned a law degree. He discovered his true calling when he met the exorcist Father Candido. Ever since, he has been face-to-face with the devil every day, relieving thousands of believers of their suffering through religious rites and the power of prayer. Memoirs of an Exorcist recounts Amorth's many impressive stories of healing and faith, as gathered by famed journalist Marco Tosatti.

Memoirs of an Invisible Man

by H. F. Saint

"For the first thirty-four years of my life I was exactly like everyone else, and while those years seemed compelling enough to me at the time, you would presumably not be reading a narrative entitled 'Memoirs of a Securities Analyst.' Anyway, right in the middle of my rather ordinary way through life, a minor but altogether extraordinary scientific mishap rendered a small spherical chunk of New Jersey utterly invisible. As chance would have it, I was at the critical moment included in that spherical chunk. I, together with my immediate surroundings, was instantly transformed: just as in a petrified fossil the structure of the original organism is exactly reduplicated as an arrangement of mineral particles, so my body was exactly reduplicated as a living structure of minute units of energy. It functions very much as before-- with, as far as I have been able to determine, only minor differences. But you cannot see it at all. "The point is that it could have been absolutely anyone. I know that each of us is utterly unique and so forth--like snowflakes or leaves. Although, as the wind scatters the proverbial generations of leaves to the ground, it can sometimes be hard to find much metaphysical comfort in one's own peculiarity. Anyway, no peculiarity of mine made it more likely that I should wind up in this condition than you. An improbable and very poor roll of the cosmic dice. God's eye was doubtless on the sparrow at the time. "Whereas I had my eye mainly on Anne Epstein...."

Memoirs of Hecate County

by Edmund Wilson

Hecate is the Greek goddess of sorcery, and Edmund Wilson's Hecate County is the bewitched center of the American Dream, a sleepy bedroom community where drinks flow endlessly and sexual fantasies fill the air. "Memoirs of Hecate County", Wilson's favorite among his many books, is a set of interlinked stories combining the supernatural and the satirical, astute social observation and unusual personal detail. But the heart of the book, "The Princess with the Golden Hair," is a starkly realistic novella about New York City, its dance halls and speakeasies and slums. So sexually frank that for years Wilson's book was suppressed. This story is one of the great lost works of twentieth-century American literature: an astringent, comic, ultimately devastating exploration of lust and love, how they do and do not overlap.

Memoirs Of An Imaginary Friend

by Matthew Dicks

Imaginary friend Budo narrates this heartwarming story of love, loyalty, and the power of the imagination-the perfect read for anyone who has ever had a friend . . . real or otherwise Budo is lucky as imaginary friends go. He's been alive for more than five years, which is positively ancient in the world of imaginary friends. But Budo feels his age, and thinks constantly of the day when eight-year-old Max Delaney will stop believing in him. When that happens, Budo will disappear. Max is different from other children. Some people say that he has Autism, but most just say he's "on the spectrum. " None of this matters to Budo, who loves Max and is charged with protecting him from the class bully, from awkward situations in the cafeteria, and even in the bathroom stalls. But he can't protect Max from Mrs. Patterson, the woman who works with Max in the Learning Center and who believes that she alone is qualified to care for this young boy. When Mrs. Patterson does the unthinkable and kidnaps Max, it is up to Budo and a team of imaginary friends to save him--and Budo must ultimately decide which is more important: Max's happiness or Budo's very existence. Narrated by Budo, a character with a unique ability to have a foot in many worlds--imaginary, real, child, and adult, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend touches on the truths of life, love, and friendship as it races to a heartwarming...and heartbreaking conclusion.
