Diamond Sharp writes a racy newspaper column, using a fake name to conceal her identity. When she meets two charismatic American men who are bitter enemies, her life is turned upside down. She is drawn to both of them but isn’t sure whom she can trust. As she becomes increasingly involved with both, Diamond begins to uncover a nest of secrets that puts both her heart and her reputation at risk.

"I'LL TAKE TWO!" That's what Bibi Branchflower says about everything. She has two houses, two hats (exactly alike), and two silly dogs. But she doesn't have a single friend. When she comes across a beautiful jewel box, of course she wants two of them. Though there's only one like it in all the world, inside two dancers spin. Perfect! The shopkeeper explains that the box is enchanted—all who look on the ballerinas will see sorrow in their faces. Soon Bibi becomes more concerned with her sad ballerinas than with worldly riches. What will make them happy? It is her love that finally transforms them into living, breathing, happy children—and gives Bibi two real friends.

In this book, Satyam Ahlaad tells the story of a person just like you and me. The hero in this story recognises that life no longer touches his deepest core. Neither success and money nor consumption and pleasure fulfil him. Lost in a world full of noise and bustle, he tries to cheat his way through life as best he can. After many unsuccessful attempts to bring joy back into his life, he makes a fateful decision. He leaves his familiar environment and experiences his greatest adventure ever: the journey to himself. This is the moment at which the story begins. Not everyone can or wants to abruptly interrupt their life and move to distant lands. This is not really necessary because, in essence, the journey might only need to be an internal one. As a reader of this story, you are invited to follow the journey of our hero as though it were your own inner journey. At the end of this journey, you will encounter fulfilment and a sense of purpose to a depth and immediacy that cannot be gained from normal, everyday consciousness.

"Du Shiniang Sinks Her Jewel Box in Anger" (杜十娘怒沉百宝箱), originally written by Feng Menglong (冯梦龙, 1574-1646, a Ming Dynasty writer, thinkers, and opera artist), is one of the most outstanding short stories in the history of ancient Chinese literature. Its ideological content and artistic achievements occupy the peak of ancient Chinese short stories. The story, with its delicate brushstrokes, portrays Du Shiniang (杜十娘), a female figure, who is persistently pursuing the good wishes in her own heart, and has achieved extraordinary and outstanding artistic milestones. Du Shiniang, a famous prostitute in Beijing, pursued true love in order to redeem her life, and entrusted her life to Li Jiasheng (李甲生), a college student and the rich son of Shaoxing (绍兴). However, Li Jiasheng was weak and selfish. Although he was truly in love with Du Shiniang, he succumbed to the social and family ethics. No matter how hard Du Shiniang would try, she couldn't escape the shackles of her tragic fate. Li Jiasheng turned his back on her faith, and eventually, coupled with Sun Fu's (孙富) instigation, he sold Du Shiniang. Under all disillusionment, Du Shiniang scolded Sun Fu, scolded Li Jiasheng, and threw a jewel box, treasured for many years, into the river, and finally she as well jumped in the rolling waves. Kindle Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B087D33FVV Paperback Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B087FGZ3MH The book has 11 chapters in the following order: Chapter 1: Falling into the Dust (第一章:沦入风尘) Chapter 2: Indifference (第二章:人情冷漠) Chapter 3: True Love (第三章:患难真情) Chapter 4: Farewell to the Friends (第四章:告别朋友) Chapter 5: Meeting Sun Fu (第五章:偶遇孙富) Chapter 6: The Matter was Decided (第六章:此事已定) Chapter 7: Angry Treasure Chest (第七章:怒沉宝箱) Chapter 8: Future Generations (第八章:后人总结) Chapter 9: Repaying Virtue (第九章:知恩报德) Chapter 10: More Analysis (第十章:更多分析) Chapter 11: Nine Songs of Yongmei (第十一章:咏梅九首) The current book volume, Chinese Short Stories 11, is a Level 1 Chinese reading practice book.
