So Far from the Bamboo Grove
In the final days of World War II, Koreans were determined to take back control of their country from the Japanese and end the suffering caused by the Japanese occupation. As an eleven-year-old girl living with her Japanese family in northern Korea, Yoko is suddenly fleeing for her life with her mother and older sister, Ko, trying to escape to Japan, a country Yoko hardly knows.Their journey is terrifying—and remarkable. It's a true story of courage and survival that highlights the plight of individual people in wartime. In the midst of suffering, acts of kindness, as exemplified by a family of Koreans who risk their own lives to help Yoko's brother, are inspiring reminders of the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

Fluturele este o insect din ordinul Lepidoptera, termen ce provine din termenii grecesti lepis (coaj) si pteron (arip). Mai mult coaj dect miez. Acest ordin are aproximativ 165.000 de specii cunoscute care, n ciuda unei mari varieti de forme si culori, au o structur similar, mai toi fiind nscrii n uniunile scriitoriceti de pretutindeni. Printre azteci, fluturii sunt un simbol al sufletului sau ultima suflare a unui muribund. Un fluture care zboar printre flori reprezint sufletul unui rzboinic czut pe un cmp de lupt. ntr-adevr, rzboinicii se ntorc pe pmnt sub form de colibri sau fluturi care, de data aceasta, se apuc imediat de scris i nu mai suport vederea armelor. Eventual sapa o mai tolereaz, pentru a-i spa pe cei care nu le laud culorile, stilul i fandoselile. Curcanul, ns, este o pasre de talie mare, originar din America, domesticit cu premii literare nc din timpul aztecilor. n timpul mperecherii n vederea formrii gtilor literare, culoarea pielii capului i gtului devine albastru i rou aprins, masculul desfurnd coada n form de evantai. Femelele desfoar doar sunete guturale: glu-glu-glu! i recit cu gravitate ce le vine la ndemn, pe sub aripi. Specie hipersensibil, curcanii pot s sufere atacuri de cord sau de panic. n timpul unor teste ale avioanelor U.S. Air Force s-a constatat decesul a mai multor curcani din zon din cauza atacurilor cardiace. Remediul este aplicarea de laude i aplauze n zonele tumefiate. Fluturele-curcan este o specie ncruciat ce, paradoxal, nu tolereaz fluturii i curcanii pur-snge. Exist zvonuri c unele exemplare modificate genetic pot rezista fr s scrie chiar i 6 luni. Timp n care clocesc citind pe rupte. (tiri despre fluturi, curcani i hibrizi/stirileprotv.ro)“

South African born Elon Musk is the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity. Musk wants to save our planet; he wants to send citizens into space, to form a colony on Mars; he wants to make money while doing these things; and he wants us all to know about it. He is the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films starring Robert Downey Junior. The personal tale of Musk’s life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story. He was a freakishly bright kid who was bullied brutally at school, and abused by his father. In the midst of these rough conditions, and the violence of apartheid South Africa, Musk still thrived academically and attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he paid his own way through school by turning his house into a club and throwing massive parties. He started a pair of huge dot-com successes, including PayPal, which eBay acquired for $1.5 billion in 2002. Musk was forced out as CEO and so began his lost years in which he decided to go it alone and baffled friends by investing his fortune in rockets and electric cars. Meanwhile Musk’s marriage disintegrated as his technological obsessions took over his life ... Elon Musk is the Steve Jobs of the present and the future, and for the past twelve months, he has been shadowed by tech reporter, Ashlee Vance. Elon Musk: How the Billionaire CEO of Spacex and Tesla is Shaping our Future is an important, exciting and intelligent account of the real-life Iron Man.
Reading Like a Writer
Long before there were creative-writing workshops and degrees, how did aspiring writers learn to writeBy reading the work of their predecessors and contemporaries, says Francine Prose. In Reading Like a Writer , Prose invites you to sit by her side and take a guided tour of the tools and the tricks of the masters. She reads the work of the very best writers—Dostoyevsky, Flaubert, Kafka, Austen, Dickens, Woolf, Chekhov—and discovers why their work has endured. She takes pleasure in the long and magnificent sentences of Philip Roth and the breathtaking paragraphs of Isaac Babel; she is deeply moved by the brilliant characterization in George Eliot's Middlemarch . She looks to John Le Carr for a lesson in how to advance plot through dialogue, to Flannery O'Connor for the cunning use of the telling detail, and to James Joyce and Katherine Mansfield for clever examples of how to employ gesture to create character. She cautions readers to slow down and pay attention to words, the raw material out of which literature is crafted. Written with passion, humor, and wisdom, Reading Like a Writer will inspire readers to return to literature with a fresh eye and an eager heart.
