Book excerpt: "Essential." - The New York Times Book Review When outsiders on a mission arrive to change a small town’s attitudes, residents and newcomers alike end up transformed. Big Burr, Kansas is the kind of place where everyone seems to know everyone—or so they think. But when a national nonprofit labels Big Burr “the most homophobic town in the U.S.” and sends in a queer task force to live and work there for two years, no one is prepared for what will ensue. Still grieving the death of her son, Linda welcomes the newcomers, who know mercifully little about her past. Teenage Avery, furious at being uprooted from her life in L.A. and desperate to fit in at her new high school, fears it’s only a matter of time before her classmates discover her mom is the head of the task force. And Gabe, an avid hunter who has lived in Big Burr his whole life, suddenly feels as if he’s in the crosshairs. As tensions roil the town, cratering relationships and bringing difficult truths to light, both long time residents and new arrivals must reconsider what it means to belong. Told with warmth and wit, Under the Rainbow is a poignant, hopeful articulation of our complicated humanity and the ways we can learn to live with each other and ourselves.

Abe was beaten, maimed, and emotionally scarred for the rest of his life.

Book Synopsis Over The Rainbow With Bhagawan Butch by : Mildred Maiorino
Download or read book Over The Rainbow With Bhagawan Butch written by Mildred Maiorino and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2005-08 with total page 326 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Butch was an interesting cat when he was alive. Now that he's dead he's even more so. In his feline-humanoid form-he plays the guitar and often talks to his former mistress, the writer he calls Sweet Lady. He also takes her and Ginger, the channel, on the most amazing adventures in dimensions beyond normal sight-but no less real for all of that. Once incarnated on earth to study humans, Butch is now back on "the other side" at his own "pad" as he calls it (Butch is definitely something of a Beatnik). Over there, he is recognized as a Bhagawan or spiritual Master. Sweet Lady has chronicled her dream time travels with Butch-with edits from Ginger who perches atop her monitor when she writes. She introduces us to fascinating people, shares the deeper meaning of life she discovers, and whisks us along through the wonderful realms of her imagination. But why does it seem so real? Could it be that it is the true reality she describes? "We-e-l-l-l," Bhagawan Butch would say, "that's what you gotta decide." -Laren Bright Laren Bright is an Emmy nominated and award winning writer who has spent years in helping business, authors and self-published authors provide sparkling promotional text.

Book Synopsis Arlen and Harburg's Over the Rainbow by : Walter Frisch
Download or read book Arlen and Harburg's Over the Rainbow written by Walter Frisch and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2017-09-29 with total page 128 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Over the Rainbow" exploded into worldwide fame upon its performance by Judy Garland in the MGM film musical The Wizard of Oz (1939). Voted the greatest song of the twentieth century in a 2000 survey, it is a masterful, delicate balance of sophistication and child-like simplicity in which composer Harold Arlen and lyricist E. Y. "Yip" Harburg poignantly captured the hope and anxiety harbored by Dorothy's character. In Arlen and Harburg's Over the Rainbow, author Walter Frisch traces the history of this song from its inception during the development of The Wizard of Oz's screenplay, to its various reinterpretations over the course of the twentieth century. Through analysis of the song's music and lyrics, this Oxford Keynotes volume provides a close reading of the piece while examining the evolution of its meaning as it traversed widely varying cultural contexts. From its adoption as a jazz standard by generations of pianists, to its contribution to Judy Garland's role as a gay icon, to its reemergence as a chart-topping recording by Hawaiian singer Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, "Over the Rainbow" continues to engage audiences and performers alike in surprising ways. Featuring a companion website with audio and video supplements, this book leaves no path unexplored as it succeeds in capturing the extent of this song's impact on the world.

This book was released on 2021-01-01 with total page 122 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The sketches in this book and in my previous one, "The Cross at the Front," are attempts to show the soul of the soldier serving in France as I have seen it during the year and a half that I have been with him. It is a padre's privilege and duty to be the voice with which, in public worship, the soldiers speak to God; and through which their last thoughts are borne to their friends at home. He is their voice both when they are sick or wounded, and when they lie silent in the grave. He speaks of their hopes and fears, hardships and heroisms, laughter and tears. As best he may he tries to tell, to those who have a right and a longing to know, how they thought, and how they bore themselves in the great day of trial when all risked their lives and many laid them down." -Preface
