A remarkable account of the amazing life story of the man who inspired the film Hotel Rwanda Readers who were moved and horrified by Hotel Rwanda will respond even more intensely to Paul Rusesabagina’s unforgettable autobiography. As Rwanda was thrown into chaos during the 1994 genocide, Rusesabagina, a hotel manager, turned the luxurious Hotel Milles Collines into a refuge for more than 1,200 Tutsi and moderate Hutu refugees, while fending off their would-be killers with a combination of diplomacy and deception. In An Ordinary Man, he tells the story of his childhood, retraces his accidental path to heroism, revisits the 100 days in which he was the only thing standing between his “guests” and a hideous death, and recounts his subsequent life as a refugee and activist. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Seldom does one come across a small town such as Escalante, Utah, with so many gifted storytellers of tall tales and all shades inbetween. From the time the first Mormon settlers came trudging into Potato Valley, later to be called Escalante after the Escalante River that flows through the valley, these sturdy pioneers, all of them poorer than Job s turkey, seemed to thrive on hard work and humor. The Lord Himself must have chuckled when Bishop Andrew Schow, faithful old Dane that he was, prayed for rain. "Heavenly Father," he intoned for a group of his farmer friends, "Thou knowest how bone dry it s been here this entire summer, so please send us some rain, a nice gentle rain and not one of them old gully washers!" The good Lord, tis said, was so delighted with this heartfelt prayer that He sent that nice gentle rain the very next afternoon. Or take the time that drinking buddies Hanley Bailey and Lamon Griffin got into a squabble over politics one night. Lamon s patience at an end, he hauled off and clipped Hanley on the chin and broke his jaw. Six weeks later when Hanley finally got the fine copper wiring removed from his upper and lower teeth so he could talk again, he was asked about the nature of the altercation. "Well, sir," he said mock seriously, "it wuz like this---I wuz broadcastin when I should a been tunin in!" This book, definitely a MUST read, is a delight from start to finish. Readers will return to its pages again and again to savor the charming stories and anecdotes. . . .

Full of wisdom and honesty, Not Quite an Ordinary Life shares the rather extraordinary life of J. David Joyce, a common man who took the common man's journey through life. One of eight children born to an Irish Catholic housepainter and his wife, Joyce grew up in the midst of poverty in a small New York town. In his youth, he endured (and survived) Catholic school, dealt with his father's addiction to morphine, and learned the importance of hard work. As an adult, he served a tour of duty in Vietnam, suffered through financial difficulties, and mourned the death of his only son. Yet through it all, Joyce continued to believe in a better life for himself and his family. His middle class success included a solid marriage, wonderful children, advanced education, and worldwide travel. He enjoyed a twenty-year career in the US Air Force working in foreign intelligence collection and analysis, as well as being a counselor to veterans. In later years, he became an IRS agent and finished his working life as an accountant. Rich with detail and brimming with emotion, Not Quite an Ordinary Life reveals one man's strength and courage against the odds and his remarkable zest in pursuing the American dream.

We all have a book inside us and a story to tell. Heading for eighty and still only partly retired, Roy is no exception. He starts off as a scholarship boy at Manchester Grammar School at the beginning of World War Two. After a stint in the Civil Service, conscription into the Army and life as a tea planter in India, he eventually becomes a salesman. Roy progresses right up to managing director, before suddenly jacking it all in at the age of 59, waving goodbye to his mystified family and backpacking round France while he 'gets his head straight'. Returning to England, Roy is ready for the next challenge. He is soon busier than ever, with a variety of jobs, including manufacturer's agent, toastmaster and masseur. Heading for the next decade, Roy shows no signs of retiring yet. He says: Life's still good, and far better than the alternative.

This is my story formally entitled On The Edge (Changed due to problems with publishing) as I remember it now at the age of 64, when I started this story. I also feel lucky to have survived both the second world war and the few health problems I have suffered, when many of my friends and relations have succumbed to the 'Grim Reaper'. Also I have changed many of the names to protect the innocent and to stop the guilty from trying to sue me. On second thoughts a court case would give me much needed publicity. So I think I will name and shame or praise as the case may be, and to hell with it.
