في أيام الأم الثلاثة ، كانت الأم مشغولة في كتابة مذكراتها هي الأخرى، لم تعر ابنتها اهتماما، وكلما بدأت موضوعا تكتفي بهز رأسها أو الابتسام، بينما يدها وعقلها وقلبها مشغولة بتلك العبارات التي تخطها في صفحات دفتر كبير ذو غلاف وردي مزخربنقوش ذهبية. امتلأت صفحات ذلك الدفتر بعبارات الأم عن حبها لعائلتها، لابنتها، لزوجها الذي عاشت معه أجمل سنين عمرها على حد قولها، لكن أخر صفحة كتبتها قبل ثلاثة أشهر، وها هي تعاود الكتابة مرة أخرى في صفحة بيضاء جديدة
Curses are real . .
. Rosalind never thought about ancestral curses until she inherited an estate called Wynterhaven in the mountains of Colorado, from a family she never knew she had. Upon entering this sprawling estate, she is hit with visions, déjà vu, and plenty of bumps in the night. She soon finds her new home is inhabited by a gift-bearing raven, an extremely large black cat, and a talking skull. Through the candlelight and cobwebs, she finds her great-grandmother’s diary, a book of shadows that takes her back to 1918 and a time of heightened interest in archaeology, spiritualism, and secret societies. Learning of her great-grandmother’s previous life as an Oracle of Delphi, Rosalind takes yet another step back in time to the ancient Greece of Alexander the Great, finding a time of misogyny, sexual freedom, and the continual political binding and dissolution of Goddess worship. Follow along with Rosalind as she is taken through the forbidden history of her lost past and discovers curses, the occult, mystery, and a love story that transcends time and mortality.
This is a boxed set of the first three books in the Bridget Sway series. Beyond Dead: Dead than twenty-four hours, with a job that doesn’t pay, a fashion disaster for a uniform and more afterlife rules than she can shake a stick at, Bridget Sway thinks it’s as bad as it can get.
And then she finds a dead ghost stuffed in her locker ... Deader Still: Bridget Sway has survived the first week of her afterlife – but only just. Working a job that still doesn’t pay, wearing a uniform that’s still a fashion disaster and now facing a week-long assessment, things can only get better … right? Wrong. And there’s another dead ghost in her locker to prove it. A Little More Dead: Having pretty much accepted her fashion disaster of a uniform, her job that doesn’t pay and the fact she’s dead, Bridget Sway is doing okay. That is, until her handsome parole officer’s homicidal ex-ward, Crazy Katie, escapes from a mental institution.

From his role as FDR’s “negro advisor” to his appointment, under Lyndon Johnson, as the first secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Robert Clifton Weaver was one of the most influential domestic policy makers and civil rights advocates of the twentieth century. This volume, the first biography of the first African American to hold a cabinet position in the federal government, rescues from obscurity the story of a man whose legacy continues to impact American race relations and the cities in which they largely play out. Tracing Weaver’s career through the creation, expansion, and contraction of New Deal liberalism, Wendell Pritchett illuminates his instrumental role in the birth of almost every urban initiative of the period, from public housing and urban renewal to affirmative action and rent control. Beyond these policy achievements, Weaver also founded racial liberalism, a new approach to race relations that propelled him through a series of high-level positions in public and private agencies working to promote racial cooperation in American cities. But Pritchett shows that despite Weaver’s efforts to make race irrelevant, white and black Americans continued to call on him to mediate between the races—a position that grew increasingly untenable as Weaver remained caught between the white power structure to which he pledged his allegiance and the African Americans whose lives he devoted his career to improving. A crucial and largely unknown chapter in the history of American liberalism, this long-overdue biography adds a new dimension to our understanding of racial and urban struggles, as well as the complex role of the black elite in modern U.S. history.
Jahnn selected the stories, originally appearing as exempla in his novels, for separate publication (13 nicht geheure Ge- schichten. Suhrkamp, 1967). They reflect his Weltanschauung of the harmonious universe in which man is part of an end chain, connected on the one hand to his ancestors who pass their deeds on through their works, and on the other to the future by means of the everlasting repetition of the process of nature.
To Jahnn the meaning of life was that there are no answers and that man is an unknown quantity. The tragic seriousness of life is not without hope, however, for man is a responsible being, and in this world in need of love and mercy he is the only one to provide uncondi- tional love. Jahnn's work has been considered to be a repetition, in modern dress, of certain aspects of the Gilgamesh epic; his motifs are drawn from it, his characters are archetypes.
