The WWII reporter and “most significant American Jewish writer of his time” recounts his decades-long battle to stage Anne Frank’s diaries (Los Angeles Times). As a war correspondent in Europe during World War II, Meyer Levin was among the first to report on the horrors of Nazi occupation. Also a successful novelist, he desperately wanted to bear witness to what he saw in literary form. Then, in 1951, he read The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. It was precisely the voice he had been searching for—and he became determined to bring Anne’s story to America as a Broadway play. The Obsession is Levin’s candid account of this ill-fated project and the mania to see it through that gripped him for twenty years. Though Levin began writing his adaptation with the support of Anne’s father, Otto, he was eventually replaced with non-Jewish writers. Refusing to let Anne’s story be sanitized, Levin fought for his version in and out of courtrooms in a protracted battle that nearly destroyed both his family and his career. In this extraordinary memoir, Levin explores the nature of Jewishness, the price of assimilation, the writer’s obligation to himself and to his subject, and the search for identity and purpose.

In 1955, Henry Enright is a stranger in a strange town. The painfully shy, naïve teenager has relocated with his family from Boston to a quiet rural community, and Henry tries not to remember the thrashing he received a few years earlier on a cold winter’s day in the shadow of St. Andrew’s Church—a beating that would leave him even more determined to find acceptance—no matter what the personal cost. In a time when rock and roll has just started to play from the jukeboxes and the sexual revolution is on the rise, Henry, determined to remake his image and be accepted by his peers, begins to make a dramatic transformation. With only his wits to guide him in his rebellion against authority and religious hypocrisy, Henry has no idea how devastating the consequences of his revolt against the world around him will be. Both poignant and heart-wrenching, The Obsession of Henry Enright captures the mood of an era through the eyes of a misguided soul seeking to know and be known.

The Obsession is Seán Cavanagh's no-holds-barred account of his extraordinary, obsessive drive to dominate his sport. For the first time, we get up close and personal with the lowest ebbs and greatest highs of his glittering career as one of Gaelic football's era-defining players, and with the truth of what it takes to become a three-time All-Ireland and five-time All Star winner. For twenty years, Seán Cavanagh's relentless routine of train-play-repeat fed an insatiable quest for perfection and made him a permanent fixture in the Tyrone team. His fearless, uncompromising style led him to glory, but his obsession also took its toll on body and mind, and on those around him. As well as the highs that made it all worthwhile, there have been some shattering lows: the anguish and doubt of injury, hostility on and off the field of play, the despair at defeat in crucial games, and the nightmare of gossip hounding his family. In The Obsession, Seán Cavanagh opens up about the sacrifices and dedication needed to make it to the top. He takes us behind the scenes of the GAA: his controversial relationship with manager Mickey Harte, the brutal training regimes, the personal sacrifices and the tragedies that haunted him. He talks, too, of games won and lost, his iconic performance in Tyrone's victory against Kerry in the 2008 All-Ireland Final, the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship title win in February 2018 with Moy that capped an incredible career, the players and their rivalries, and his childhood during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Hard-hitting, provocative and compelling, The Obsession takes you inside the head of one of the most iconic and respected sportsmen of his time to reveal the competitive drive that made Seán Cavanagh a legend of the game and the man he is today.

In The Obsession of Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, Duyen Truong-Ngoc Tran reveals that plastic surgery is no longer an instrument to reconstruct wounded human beings, but rather an addictive trend in which South Korea leads the world. While Martin Heidegger postulated that modern technological "modes of Being" are exploiting the natural world, the "not-Beings" of Wolfgang Schirmacher, who coined the term homo generator, postulates, along with the post-Hegelian philosophers, there is "no being, certainty or truth." As plastic surgery is an individual and personal choice, whether this choice of self-improvement and self-satisfaction is ethical or unethical, the decision is nonjudgmental in terms of the cosmos we are living in rapidly becoming an artificial cosmos. South Korea, occupied by Japan and then the United States provides the most literal case study for this dramatic shift; in this nation, plastic surgery is not an individual and personal choice, but a 'murderous' undertaking as a means of survival in a hypercompetitive society. In view of the danger faced by the nation's women, Korea Womenlink organization has launched a campaign to encourage young girls to embrace their natural appearance and love their bodies by habiting them in an educated, harmonious and supportive community devoted to the full development of human potentiality. Within this community, freedom is essential so that individuals can determine their own actions in order to fulfill success, achievements, happiness, relationships, and communication. Plastic Surgery is an instrument in which has changed people' lives in many ways and this instrument will continue to uprise within the next generation.
