Jones in A Call To Silence as he takes you on a personal journey that will enlighten you on who calls you in the wee hours of the night, why you are awakened, and what your response should be.

This book was released on 2017-09-04 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Andy thought he was just an average sixteen-year-old kid... But one day his world is completely turned upside down as he learns the unbelievable truth of his identity: he is the prince of a faraway kingdom called Filligrim in the Valley of the Misfits - a magical place where pixies, elves, wizards, and dragons are just as likely to be inhabitants as humans. He was brought to this world following his birth - the only way to keep him from being murdered by his evil malicious grandfather. Sounding more like a fairytale than reality, Andy at first thinks he must be dreaming. But then his aunt Gladdy reveals even more astonishing news: his mother, the Queen of the Misfits, is in trouble; she's been captured by goblins, and it's up to Andy to rescue her. Still in shock, he makes a decision that will forever alter life as he's known it. He will return to Filligrim and, with the help of six heroic Misfits, will embark on a mission to save the kingdom from the clutches of evil. In Prince Andy and the Misfits: Shadow Man, Andy encounters one adventure after another as he works to uncover a traitor, rescue the queen from goblins, retrieve a stone of immense power, and solve the mystery surrounding the Shadow Man - the sinister mastermind behind it all. And perhaps most importantly, he must ultimately discover if he has the heart to become a true prince.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In book three, Prince Andy and the Misfits: Loombria, Tallulah P. Briar has left behind a riddle for Andy to solve-a riddle that will lead Andy to the Crown of the Races. But that quest is put on hold when a girl named Allison (claiming to be a star) comes to Andy and informs him that Daisy, Andy's pixie, has been kidnapped, along with Allison's shape-shifting friend Michelle, Fairy Godmother, and the other fairies from Toadstool Village. Andy sets out for Loombria with Allison and some of the Misfits to try to rescue their abducted friends. They stop at Eldfjall, the Dragon Kingdom, and find out some very useful information about Tallulah P. Briar, which gives Andy the hope of finding the Crown of the Races and of saving his pixie, all in one adventure. Once there, in the land of Loombria, they meet Princess Loepsie, whose father once ruled Loombria. Andy promises to help restore her to her throne and rid the land of the evil Emperor Keatonius, who has taken control of Loombria, if she will help them with their tasks. She agrees and a friendship is formed. But the Jewel of the Races has other plans. It feels that the Crown of the Races is near and drives others to do its bidding, so that it can be reunited with the crown. This causes Andy to question, how many more must die before the cursed Jewel of the Races is destroyed? On his quest, Andy feels the weight of the world, as he doubts his ability to rule as a future king, rescues his friends from the clutches of Emperor Keatonius, restores a princess to her rightful place as a queen, takes more power away from the jewel, and solves the mystery of Tallulah P. Briar.

Download or read book Toulouse-Lautrec written by Reinhold Heller and published by Prestel Publishing. This book was released on 1997 with total page 0 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "More than any other artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec epitomizes the spirit of Montmartre, the most colorful and vibrant quarter of Paris. Physically disabled since childhood, he was unable to participate in the typical pursuits of the aristocracy from which he came, preferring to find solace and inspiration in the brothels, theatres and cafes of Montmartre. A misfit among misfits, he produced countless paintings, drawings, and lithographs of the actresses, dancers and prostitutes he encountered." "Toulouse-Lautrec: The Soul of Montmartre looks at the streets and buildings of the artist's quarter of Paris, recreating the atmosphere of glamour and depravity that fired his imagination. The book analyzes the artist's critical realism, and the methods he used to produce his famous paintings and drawings - and the posters for the cabarets, theatres and dance halls of Montmartre. Toulouse-Lautrec particularly favored color lithography, a technique he mastered to perfection, producing pictures of astonishing intensity and strength in this new medium. Reinhold Heller succeeds in capturing the essence of this fascinating process and in evoking a moving portrait of this famous artist."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Book excerpt: In 1970, Ki Lun-Tai, an abbot in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, decided to become a Buddhist monk. He built a thatched hut in front of his house, adopted a schizophrenic as his disciple, and began to raise pigs and chickens with his new helper, whom he kept on a line of string, much like a leash. Within 20 years Li Kun-Tai, by now rechristed (by himself) Hieh Kai Feng, had 600 deranged helpers, most chained together, almost exclusively consigned to him by their families, distraught by the shame of having to look after lunatics, or socially unacceptable misfits. Ten years later, in 1999, Long Fa Tang - the Temple of the Dragon - was recognized as the largest chicken farm in Taiwan, with a milliin chickens laying eggs and defecating in almost equal proportions. They are tended by helpers from the 700 mental patients in the care of the Temple, wading through slurry, eggs and chicken corpses.

Book excerpt: The answers to these questions - and much, much more - are to be found in The Changing Room , which traces the origins and variations of theatrical cross-dressing through the ages and across cultures. It examines: * tribal rituals and shamanic practices in the Balkans and Chinese-Tibet * the gender-bending elements of Greek and early Christian religion * the homosexual appeal of the boy actor on the traditional stage of China, Japan and England * the origins of the dame comedian, the principal boy, the glamour drag artiste and the male impersonator * artists such as David Bowie, Boy George, Charles Ludlam, Dame Edna Everage, Lily Savage, Candy Darling, Julian Clary and the New York Dolls. Lavishly illustrated with unusual and rare pictures, this is the first ever cross-cultural study of theatrical transvestism. It is a must for anyone interested in cross-dressing, theatre, and gender.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon is an American epic of the old West for our own times -- a novel huge in its imaginative scope and daring in its themes. The narrator is Shed, or Duivichi-un-Dua, a half-breed bisexual boy who makes his living at the Indian Head Hotel in the little turn-of-the-century town of Excellent, Idaho. The imperious Ida Richilieu is Shed's employer, the town's mayor and the mistress, and the mistress and owner of this outrageously pink whorehouse. Together with the beautiful prostitute Alma Hatch, and the philosophical, green-eyed, half-crazy cowboy Dellwood Barker, this collection of misfits and outcasts make up the core of Shed's eccentric family. And although laced with the ugliness and cruelty of the frontier West -- Shed is raped by the same man who then murders the woman he thinks is his mother, and the Mormon townspeople bring a fiery end to Ida's raucous way of life -- the love and acceptance that tie this family together provide the true heart of this novel. The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon is a beautifully told, mythic tale that is as well a profound meditation on sexualty,race and man's relationship to himself and the natural world.

Download or read book The Age of the Bachelor written by Howard P. Chudacoff and published by . This book was released on 1999 with total page 341 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "What a wonderful book! Who would have expected that a history of bachelor subculture would illuminate so much of the nation's past? . . . A major contribution to a hitherto largely unexamined subject."--Benjamin G. Rader, author of American Sports: From the Age of Folk Games to the Age of Television "Being single is typically understood as a stage of life, not a way of life. Yet in this remarkable study of bachelorhood at the turn of the last century, Howard Chudacoff explodes our myths about those errant sons and strange uncles, and reveals a subculture of masculine resistance--and thus gives bachelorhood its first history."--Michael Kimmel, author of "Manhood in America: A Cultural History" "A century ago they were misfits, pariahs, deviants, vagrants, even criminal suspects. Today, bachelors evoke images of hedonistic baby-boomers and Hugh Hefner want-to-bes. Howard Chudacoff strips those images of their simplicity, convincingly showing bachelorhood to be not only misunderstood but a hidden and common social custom in American history. Full of insight and broad vision. . . ."--Timothy J. Gilfoyle, author of "City of Eros: New York City, Prostitution, and the Commercialization of Sex, 1790-1920" ""The Age of the Bachelor" is an extremely well researched study of an important subject that had not been previously examined in any book. Chudacoff has excellent command of the secondary literature. He masterfully generated quantitative data about bachelors in three major cities, Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco, to provide us with a far more accurate accounting of bachelors than we ever had before. While the book concentrates on the period from about 1800 to 1930, Chudacoff does analyze the nature of bachelorhood throughout all of American history. He explains why bachelorhood was so surprisingly widespread, examines bachelors' domestic lives, the institutions and associations they participated in, and how the male bachelor subculture influenced male culture in general. This book is an important contribution to social and gender history, and it should be widely read. The book is analytically sound, well-written, with many interesting anecdotes, and should be of interest to scholars and general readers alike."--Steven A. Riess, Northeastern Illlinois University, author of "Sport in Industrial America, 1850-1920" "This book deals with a distinctive and important topic of broad interest, and it does so convincingly, engagingly, and clearly. A truly superior work of scholarship, it is also a pleasure to read."--E. Anthony Rotundo, Phillips Academy, author of "American Manhood: Transformations in Masculinity from the Revolution to the Modern Era" ""The Age of the Bachelor" adds an important element to the rich literature of gender, culture, and urban history in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.... The research is exhaustive. The book is very well written and is blissfully free of jargon, making it accessible to readers both inside and outside the field."--Elaine Tyler May, University of Minnesota, author of "Barren in the Promised Land: Childless Americans and the Pursuit of Happiness"
