Bent But Not Broken Audiobook

Bent But Not Broken

Author: Don Cummings Narrator: Don Cummings Release Date: November 2019

Bent But Not Broken is an unflinchingly honest memoir about the onset of Peyronie's disease, a painful and sexually limiting condition that is estimated to affect more than 5% of the worldwide adult male population. Don Cummings writes humorously about the emotional and collateral damage brought on by a suddenly curved penis as he struggles to maintain his sense of sex and self. He openly details the doctor visits, the excruciating treatments, and the acute anxiety over the state of his long-term relationship with a man who is supportive but often helpless in the face of nature's whims. Discordant domestic life, a harrowing kidnapping by a handsome stranger, and reminiscences of a hyper-active sexual past are woven into the single-minded quest to minimize the effects of this deforming disorder. Brace yourself for a daring, heartfelt and beautifully twisted story of love and survival.

Memoir of a Race Traitor: Fighting Racism in the American South Audiobook

Memoir of a Race Traitor: Fighting Racism in the American South

Author: Mab Segrest Narrator: Brenda Currin Release Date: November 2019

In 1994, Mab Segrest first explained how she "had become a woman haunted by the dead." Against a backdrop of nine generations of her family's history, Segrest explored her experiences in the 1980s as a white lesbian organizing against a virulent far-right movement in North Carolina. Memoir of a Race Traitor became a classic text of white antiracist practice. bell hooks called it a "courageous and daring [example of] the reality that political solidarity, forged in struggle, can exist across differences." Adrienne Rich wrote that it was "a unique document and thoroughly fascinating." Juxtaposing childhood memories with contemporary events, Segrest described her journey into the heart of her culture, finally veering from its trajectory of violence toward hope and renewal. Now, amid our current national crisis, driven by an increasingly apocalyptic white supremacist movement, Segrest returns with an updated edition of her classic book. With a new introduction and afterword that explores what has transpired with the far right since its publication, the book brings us into the age of Trump-and to what can and must be done.

How We Fight For Our Lives Audiobook

How We Fight For Our Lives

Author: Saeed Jones Narrator: Saeed Jones Release Date: October 2019

WINNER OF THE 2019 KIRKUS PRIZE IN NONFICTION One of the most anticipated books of Fall 2019—as selected by O, The Oprah Magazine; Marie Claire; Entertainment Weekly; Time; The Millions; Refinery29; Good Housekeeping; and many more. "A moving, bracingly honest memoir that reads like fevered poetry." —THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "Jones's voice and sensibility are so distinct that he turns one of the oldest of literary genres inside out and upside down." —NPR'S FRESH AIR "An astonishing, unparalleled memoir…A rhapsody in the truest sense of the word." —ROXANE GAY "Every single living half-grown and grown-up body needs to read this book." —JACQUELINE WOODSON "People don't just happen," writes Saeed Jones. "We sacrifice former versions of ourselves. We sacrifice the people who dared to raise us. The 'I' it seems doesn't exist until we are able to say, 'I am no longer yours.'" Haunted and haunting, How We Fight for Our Lives is a stunning coming-of-age memoir. Jones tells the story of a young, black, gay man from the South as he fights to carve out a place for himself, within his family, within his country, within his own hopes, desires, and fears. Through a series of vignettes that chart a course across the American landscape, Jones draws readers into his boyhood and adolescence—into tumultuous relationships with his family, into passing flings with lovers, friends, and strangers. Each piece builds into a larger examination of race and queerness, power and vulnerability, love and grief: a portrait of what we all do for one another—and to one another—as we fight to become ourselves. An award-winning poet, Jones has developed a style that's as beautiful as it is powerful—a voice that's by turns a river, a blues, and a nightscape set ablaze. How We Fight for Our Lives is a one-of-a-kind memoir and a book that cements Saeed Jones as an essential writer for our time.

Two Slices of Bread: Interned in a Japanese concentration camp, then finding peace at last at the bo Audiobook

Two Slices of Bread: Interned in a Japanese concentration camp, then finding peace at last at the bo

Author: Ingrid Coles Narrator: Janet Balcombe Release Date: October 2019

You will be moved beyond words, even to tears-a true story of heartaches and triumphs. As a young child in Holland, Ingrid's uncle offered her another slice of bread. "Two slices of bread?" she asked, never having been allowed that many before! Her memory jumped to the starvation and cruelty her family had experienced at the hands of extremely cruel captors. Ingrid Coles was born in Java, Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia), on 28 November 1942, during the Japanese occupation of WWII. Three months after her birth, she and her family were incarcerated in prisoner-of-war camps. Her father died, aged 43, in a prison camp. Her 6-year old brother died of starvation and pneumonia en route to Holland, when the family was evacuated during the Indonesian War of Independence. Life changed drastically in the Netherlands for Ingrid and her three siblings, who had to learn how to cope with their mother's post-traumatic stress and their own war-time experiences. However, Ingrid, now orphaned aged 16 in 1958, had a clear idea of her future calling and emigrated to New Zealand to begin nursing training. This memoir traces Ingrid's background and growing-up years, revealing the secret of her successful life in her country of adoption (New Zealand); and how she overcame the hurts and hurdles of the past-even to how she learned to forgive her oppressors. REVIEW "In this vivid and evocative memoir, moving from fear to hope, Ingrid Coles née Brandt tells the extraordinary story of an immigrant in New Zealand." -Rob Zaagman, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to New Zealand

The Story of Paul - the early years. Audiobook

The Story of Paul - the early years.

Author: Trevor Galpin Narrator: Trevor Galpin Release Date: October 2019

This book is about Paul, the apostle who had an amazing revelation of the love of God the Father expressed through Jesus Christ his beloved Son. The revelation of the God who was in Christ. How did Paul receive such an incredible revelation? How was this legalistic Jewish Pharisee who persecuted the early church transformed into the man who has this profound revelation? Who was the man behind the words? What was the back story? Paul's story unfolds in the pages of the New Testament. His story is pieced together from the account written by Luke in the Acts of the Apostles along with some pieces of biographical information scattered through the thirteen letters written by Paul himself. This book also explores Paul's revelation and teaching because they are relevant for the Church today. Paul saw things with the eyes of his heart that very few have seen, and he still has much to teach us. James Jordan says of this book, "In this very easy to read, informative and entertaining book by my friend, brother and fellow servant of the Body of Christ, Trevor Galpin, you will be introduced to Paul in a deeper and more full way than I have ever known to be in print. This is the story of Paul.
