Memoir

  • Midlife Emergence: Free Your Inner Fire

    by Jen Berlingo
    Midlife Emergence is a revelatory memoir and an inviting guidebook; it is a compassionate companion that belongs on the bedside table of every woman who finds herself burning to reclaim powerful parts of herself that social conditioning has locked away. Midlife doesn’t need to be a crisis or an emergency—rather, it’s an emergence, an opportunity to make those beautiful, unexpressed facets shamelessly visible. When psychotherapist and coach Jen Berlingo traversed her own midlife portal, she exp... more
  • The Odyssey of a Hippie Marijuana Grower

    by John-Paul Cernak
    A historic look at the hippie era, and how the election of Ronald Reagan ended an epic cultural age. Jack never felt free until he lived in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury. But his freedom was in peril. The 1960s were over, and an era was closing. When the door slammed shut, there was no exit. Most of his friends cut their hair and took straight jobs in a world becoming more corporate and increasingly structured. It was a fate worse than death. But he wasn’t ready to capitulate. There might be an... more
  • M*A*S*H Vietnam: What it's like to be a war nurse

    by Lorna Griess
    M*A*S*H Vietnam shows how one young nurse survived the day-to-day drama in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in South Vietnam. Dealt in a frank, no-holds-barred tone, the book uncovers the operations of a MASH unit in a combat zone and the bleak hardships of war. This story is not so much about a war but about a regular nurse who followed her passion, her desire to do good, into the middle of a war zone, and her mixed emotions going home to a country torn by an unpopular war, uncertain how she wil... more
  • Within The Portal--A Memoir of Near Death Experience and Guide To Spiritual Awakening

    by Scott Spackey
    On June 19, I was killed. Dead in the street, Mangled, bloody and… Killed. Life can go from light to dark in an instant. Krishnanand catapulted to the ‘other-side’ when he was hit in the face by a full-size SUV. While he remained in a Stage 3 Glasgow coma for nine days, he remained fully conscious in a celestial dimension he now calls The Portal—what Tibetan Buddhists call The Bardo, and what Vedic/Sanskrit philosophy calls The Akashic Records. He woke without an identity, having no recall... more
  • A Quest for Identity: From Afghanistan to the World

    by Parastu Ahang-Mehdawi
    A Quest for Identity is her voice that offers a ladder to the world of literature. She defines herself as a citizen of the world. She is a disciple of human rights. Her message is clear: Stop separating humanity by colour, gender, religion, country, or nationality, and tolerate no war. Parastu’s pen dances on the paper when she gets inspired by nature’s beauty or is moved to scream by the injustices of the world. Her series of memoirs continues; in the second volume, she narrates her life as a w... more
  • Not Weakness: Navigating the Culture of Chronic Pain

    by Francesca Grossman
    After thyroid cancer, Crohn’s disease, and a slew of other autoimmune conditions ransacked her body in her twenties and thirties, Francesca was left feeling completely alone in her chronic pain. Constant, relentless, often indescribable, and always exhausting, it affected her whole life―intimacy, motherhood, friendship, work, and mental health. Yet it was also fairly invisible―and because of that, Francesca felt entirely alone in the centrifuge of her own pain. But after twenty-plus years of liv... more

    by Irena Smith

  • One with the Road

    by John Reger
    Most people never get to travel across the United States, least of all take three months to do it. In One with the Road, John Reger leaves Southern California on his Harley Davidson in a classic search for himself and America. Covering forty states and nearly 12,000 miles, the author meets unique and interesting people that share his iconoclastic lifestyle, such as a hitchhiking preacher, a truck-stop dentist, and a confidence man-all who teach him, and us, that being unusual makes life more int... more

As the days following the diagnosis blurred together, Tammy saw two paths before her—fall apart or fall into the arms of the Lord.

  • Trust Yourself to Be All In: Safe to Love and Let Go

    by Amanda McKoy Flanagan
    A Boundless Quest for Emotional Freedom and Soul Evolution Everyone leaves you or hurts you. This false myth of generational family dysfunction, compounded through trauma, appeared frighteningly true to Amanda the moment her brother overdosed and died. Devastated, she shined up the emotional armor she wore to protect herself from pain and soldiered on. But a decade of self-reflection and personal growth in 12-step recovery could not save her from herself. Attempting to destroy everything arou... more
  • El Chirrido de Los Columpios: De la supervivencia a la plenitud, Una historia real de superación del abuso sexual. (Spanish edi

    by Guy Giard
    Voy dando saltos en mi bicicleta, pedaleo tan rápido como puedo y cruzo de un carril al otro sin preocuparme por el tránsito que avanza en sentido contrario. Mis pulmones se llenan de polvo. En un paso subterráneo en abandono, el asfalto fisurado se entrechoca con la tierra y las columnas grises desfilan como los dientes rotos de un peine viejo y grasoso. El olor fétido de los centenares de excrementos blancos y grises de las palomas compite con la putrefacción de sus plumas y del lúpulo de la c... more
