Look at the Birdie is a collection of fourteen previously unpublished short stories from one of the most original writers in all of American fiction. In this series of perfectly rendered vignettes, written just as he was starting to find his comic voice, Kurt Vonnegut paints a warm, wise, and often funny portrait of life in post—World War II America–a world where squabbling couples, high school geniuses, misfit office workers, and small-town lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology, moral ambiguity, and unprecedented affluence. In “Ed Luby’s Key Club,” a man on a dinner date with his wife finds himself plunged into a Kafkaesque nightmare after he’s wrongly accused of murder in Ilium, a small town run by one of Al Capone’s former bodyguards–and rotten to the core with official corruption. “Ed Luby’s Key Club” and the thirteen other never-before-published pieces that comprise Look at the Birdie serve as an unexpected gift for devoted readers who thought that Kurt Vonnegut’s unique voice had been stilled forever–and provide a terrific introduction to his short fiction for anyone who has yet to experience his genius.

One early spring day in May 1954 the headmaster called the author, who was about to leave school, into his study for occupational guidance. All Neil knew was that the dreary nine to five existence in office or factory was not for him. ‘I want to be a steward in the Merchant Navy sir’. The head who was a good old boy shook his grey head. ‘What a waste.’ What followed was no waste; adventure was what he craved and adventure and romance aplenty called during the years that were the heyday of Britain’s proud merchant flag, the “Red Duster”. From Brazil to the Caribbean, to New Zealand and Australia where he now lives, the author will share with you a rollicking good yarn or two.. Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.

Discover how God's Divine Presence gives your purpose and fulfillment regardless of life's season as you learn to discern the temporary from the eternal and live with conviction. Have you ever looked at your life and wondered, "Is this it?" After a childhood of being promised the future is bright, it's difficult to see meaning and purpose as you trudge through your everyday adulthood obligations. Expectations are unmet, hope fades, and disappointment in relationships and careers leaves you longing for better while living broken. But some things are temporary and others eternal, and you must learn to tell the difference. The Kingdom and Presence of God are still present, right here and right now. And experiencing them changes everything. Glimpses of God's divine Kingdom can be found in your workplace, classroom, and around the dinner table with friends. His nearness can be felt in celebratory moments and in empty apartments and when the phone rings with devastating news. Even when the world around you appears to be falling apart, God and His Kingdom remain steadfast. As you experience the inevitable pain of finding your way, this book will help you realize you aren't alone and encourage you through the narrative of Scripture. Many have gone before us and shown us the way. God's Kingdom has come (and is still coming) and His presence is real. Eternal things can be seen if we learn to look through the lens of His unchanging Truth.

Today, I would learn the truth. An efficient sounding female voice answered the phone, "Dallas County Police Department." Where do I begin? What do I say? "Yes ma'am, I need to speak with someone about a case that's twenty two years old." "A case? What type of case?" "A sexual abuse case." With that phone call, successful business executive Grant Garris began a journey through the memory of his shattered childhood; many of the details as painstakingly clear as when they had occurred, as he suffered violent and horrific sexual abuse at the hands of his own grandfather. In a stark and startling memoir, Garris recounts his early years, offering no protection from the shocking reality that is childhood sexual abuse. Difficult to read and yet impossible to put down, Garris details molestation, the physical torture, and the sadistic mental manipulation that are the all-too-common arsenal of those who harm children - and those who protect them as they harbor a family's dirty secret. Standing against a monster and refusing to be deterred by the intricate family ties and powerful political connections of a Southern bastion family that threatened to sacrifice their own children to the altar of public image, Garris chose to prevail. Garris movingly recounts the surprising support system that evolved in his journey, including a seemingly powerless domestic servant, strangers, a fellow survivor named Oprah Winfrey, and a few courageous loved ones, all of whom dropped into his life at precisely the right moment. Garris' life story is not a narrative of victimhood, nor is it a rosy tale of happy endings tied up in a neat package. Instead, it is the gritty, raw, and sometimes wonderful reality of conquering adversity. This book should be required reading for all who believe it is time to shred the veil of secrecy that protects child molesters.
