For fans of Boyhood, Jacques is Tanya Ravenswater's beautiful and touching coming-of-age novel of what makes an ordinary life extraordinary. This is the story of Jacques Lafitte, a young French boy who is orphaned and torn away from everything he knows. Forced to move to England to live with his guardian - the pompous and distant Oliver - Jacques finds himself in a strange country, and a strange world. As years pass Jacques becomes part of the Clark family. But then his feelings for Oliver's daughter Rebecca begin to surpass mere sibling affection. A development that has the power to bring them together, or tear the family apart . . . A story of loss, longing, falling in love and finding a place to call home. And, most importantly, of the power of the relationships that help us along the way.

Gefangen im eigenen Körper. Martin ist zwölf, als ihn eine rätselhafte Krankheit befällt: Er verliert seine Sprache, die Kontrolle über seinen Körper, ist nach wenigen Monaten völlig hilflos. Die Ärzte sagen seinen Eltern, er werde für immer schwerstbehindert bleiben. Was niemand ahnte: Im Kokon seines Körpers verbirgt sich ein schrittweise erwachender Geist und eine zutiefst lebendige Seele. Als Martin aufwacht, kann er nur mit den Augen Lebenszeichen geben. Eine Pflegerin erkennt schließlich, dass er sehr wohl bei Bewusstsein ist und alles um sich herum mitbekommt. Dann endlich erhält er die Hilfe, die er benötigt, um sich ganz ins Leben zurück zu kämpfen. Martin Pistorius erzählt bewegend und absolut authentisch darüber, was ihn in den elf Jahren der Hilflosigkeit am Leben gehalten hat. Sein dramatisches Buch über seine Erfahrungen zeigt, dass mit der Unterstützung einer Familie, die nicht aufgibt und einem großen Lebenswillen sogar Wunder möglich sind.

"Life Don't Have To End." is a compilation of stories, images, and wisdom from HIV positive men and women. Over a two-year period, more than 60 courageous individuals from the JACQUES Initiative of the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine dictated their personal life stories to Cricket Barrazotto, a friend to the JACQUES Initiative and photographer, for the purpose of compiling a book. These contributors wanted their voices and stories to be inspirational to others. The book speaks to the resiliency of the human spirit and body. Readers are exposed to tragedy and triumph as they share in the intimate journeys of the book's contributors. Additionally, Ms. Barrazotto spent a year teaching photography to several of the book's contributors. It is the clients' photographic imagery that illustrates the book.

The youngest of four daughters in an old, celebrated St. Louis family of prominent journalists and politicians on one side, debutante balls and equestrian trophies on the other, Jeanne Darst grew up hearing stories of past grandeur. And as a young girl, the message she internalized was clear: while things might be a bit tight for us right now, it's only temporary. Soon her father would sell the Great American Novel and reclaim the family's former glory. The family uproots and moves from St. Louis to New York. Jeanne's father writes one novel, and then another, which don't find publishers. This, combined with her mother's burgeoning alcoholism -- nightly booze- fueled weepathons reminiscing about her fancy childhood -- lead to financial disaster and divorce. And as Jeanne becomes an adult, she is horrified to discover that she is not only a drinker like her mother, but a writer like her father. At first, and for years, she embraces both - living in an apartment with no bathroom, stealing food from her babysitting gigs, and raising rent money by riding the subway topless, or performing her one woman show in her living room. Until gradually, she realizes that this life has not been thrust on her in some handing-down-of-the-writing-mantle-way. She has chosen it; and until she can stop putting drinking and writing ahead of everything else, it's a questionable choice. She writes, "For a long time I was worried about becoming my father. Then I was worried about becoming my mother. Now I was worried about becoming myself." Ultimately, Jeanne sets out to discover if a person can have the writing without the ruin, if it's possible to be both sober and creative, ambitious and happy, a professional author and a parent. Filled with brilliantly flawed, idiosyncratic characters and punctuated by Darst's irreverent eye for absurdity, Fiction Ruined My Family is a lovingly told, wickedly funny portrait of an unconventional life.
