In the Mid 80's Nigeria was politically unstable. The country was ruled by military dictatorship whose leaders came into power as a result of incessant coup de tat. There was always one coup after another and the military rulers were clueless on how to advance the country politically or economically. They were all reasoning through their butt holes and the barrel of a gun- two dangerous combinations. As a result, basic human right was virtually not in their agenda and they maintained power by any means necessary. Corruption was and still a part of official government policy; therefore development was at a standstill. The Country's police force was a part of the problem rather than being the solution. The United States became a viable option for me if I was to escape the oppression and degradation that became a way of life in Nigeria. I arrived in the United States with less than $400 dollars in my pocket in the summer of 1985. Although I had an admission to a State university, I did not have enough money for room and board. I did not have any friend or relative willing to take me in or pick me up from the Houston International airport. I was virtually homeless for the first couple of days in a new country until I found my way to Edinburg, a valley city in east Texas close to the Mexican border. There I had a temporary accommodation only for a couple of weeks. This book tells a story about beating the odds in spite of all adversities. It tells of how anyone can reach their goals in the United States if they apply themselves and stay out of trouble. It also let people know that it will not be an easy walk, because one has to be elastic or break in the proces. Secondly that there is a separate country inside the United States run by the pimps, homeless and the outlaw. These people are referred to as elements of the fifth ward society. They live and operate under a different set of rules called the "Eleventh Commandment". This is a book unlike any others before it. It is an autobiography with a twist to it. Instead of concentrating on me and my experience, lots of focus is placed on taking you trough the entire journey I have been trough and let you experience these things on your own without physically going through them. You get the full benefits of the experiments without actually been used as a specimen. You enjoy the thrills, humors and treats without feeling any of the pains or face the challenges. The book is an adventure in a comic planet, full of excitements, challenges and humors.

From the author of Shoeless Joe—the basis for the film Field of Dreams—come baseball stories that capture the magic and wonder of the game. No one can write about baseball with the same brilliant combination of mysticism and realism as W. P. Kinsella. Lovers of the game and lovers of fine writing will thrill at the range and depth of the eleven stories that make up this collection. From the magical conspiracy of the title story, to the celestial prediction in “The Last Pennant Before Armageddon,” to the desolation of “The Baseball Spur,” Kinsella explores the world of baseball and makes it, miraculously, a microcosm of the human condition. Praise for W. P. Kinsella’s The Dixon Cornbelt League and Other Baseball Stories “[Kinsella] defines a world in which magic and reality combine to make us laugh and think about the perceptions we take for granted.” —The New York Times “His short stories about baseball are wistful things of beauty which serve to remind us how the game should feel—the innate glory of a diamond etched in the minds of Americans.” —Calgary Sun “[Kinsella] uses baseball . . . As a familiar starting place for exploring, with pinpoint control, the human psyche.” —Booklist “Stories that read like lightning and tantalize the reader with fascinating scenarios.” —Publishers Weekly

The Honourable Jack Sydney George just-call-me-Bud Cullen defied all odds when he was elected Sarnia's Member of Parliament during the head-spinning days of Trudeaumania. Candid and outspoken, Cullen was never one to shy away from controversy. Just as he spoke openly about the difficult issues surrounding his ministerial responsibilities, he never hid the fact that he and his chief of staff had fallen in love. This memoir, written after Cullen's death by his chief of staff who became his partner and wife of thirty years, is unusually poignant and revealing. Nicole Chénier-Cullen's discussions of the critical issues that the minister tackled, such as new immigration legislation, dealing with Quebec's first separatist government, and the tragedy of the Vietnamese refugees, uncover a behind-the-scenes perspective never before known. Her humorous, straightforward account of life in a minister's office is most refreshing. Her honest, thoughtful discourse on how the couple survived what could have been a scandalous relationship adds a revealing dimension to the story, as does her portrayal of Cullen's transition from politician to Federal Court judge. Finally, the author's heart-wrenching account of her husband's final years, and how the family coped with the ravages of Lewy Body, an Alzheimer's related disease, packs a real emotional punch.
