Half the World - Corri van de Stege Summary

What was it like to live in Isfahan as the foreign wife of an Iranian University professor in the run up to and during the revolution of 1979, when the Shah was overthrown and Khomeini created the Islamic Republic of Iran? Corri van de Stege a Dutch national lived, studied and worked in London for eight years, married her Iranian boyfriend and moved with him to Isfahan early in 1977. Initially suffering from homesickness for London she adapts and makes new friends amongst the community of ‘foreign wives’ and becomes a teacher at the British Council. But then she finds herself in the middle of a revolution in an alien country with her husband and baby son, without internet, social media or even a telephone in her house, and where television and radio broadcasts are censored so you never know what is true and what is gossip. The author evokes the stark contrast between the everyday life on the campus and the escalation of violence both across the country and in Isfahan, the town where she lives. She worries about the increasing demonstrations of hatred against foreigners, in particular Americans, and the English language. You feel the tension grow between friends and colleagues who will have to decide whether they can live in an Islamic Republic, their unease aggravated by increasing uncertainty about what will happen to the American hostages held in Tehran.

It ceased publication in 1998 and its back issues have become treasured—and valuable—collector’s items. Dave the Spazz has spent the past twenty years hosting a weekly radio show on WFMU, self-publishing, freelance writing, making artwork, singing in punk-rock bands, and holding down one crummy job after another.

Jesus Boy - Preston L. Allen Summary

“A consummate tragicomedy of African American family secrets and sorrows, and of faith under duress…a shout-hallelujah tale of transgression and grace.”—Booklist Sixteen-year-old Elwyn Parker is a member of the austere community of Christian believers at the Church of Our Blessed Redeemer Who Walked Upon the Waters, a devout and sincere piano prodigy who learns too late that the saintly girl he has had a crush on all his life is inexplicably pregnant and soon to be wed. Then the beautiful forty-two-year-old widow, Sister Morrisohn, in the midst of the confused emotions of her grieving, ends up in Elwyn's arms. Despite the problems posed by their age difference and the strict prohibitions of their strong religious beliefs, Elwyn and Sister Morrisohn's love is true, and as it grows among the ascetics, abstainers, and holy ghost rollers of their church, it exposes with wit, poignancy, and insight the dark secrets and ancient crimes of the pious. In Jesus Boy, “by turns solemn and funny” (The New York Times), Elwyn learns through tragedy and epiphany that the holy are no different from the rest of us. “Heartfelt and occasionally hilarious, Jesus Boy is a tender masterpiece.”—Dennis Lehane, New York Times-bestselling author of Mystic River and Since We Fell

You Do Have Perrier, Don't You? - Anthony Cavallo Summary

I started in fine dining the summer of '79. At the time Perrier was the rage. The in thing was to order, and be heard ordering, Perrier. This bottle sat on everyone's table - an excellent drink with dinner and wine. My book is a collection of memories that I recall all too often - thoughts of events that occurred over twenty-five years that are too interesting not to be told. The best I can do is let you read about them. I wish I could tell you....I wish you were there. Being a waiter, and especially a maitre d', was fun not knowing what unique experience would occur today, and involve me. Unintentionally and willingly I had the best job of my life. If any waiter, or restaurant employee, or any type of worker had a more interesting or exciting job than I, more power to them.
