Red Azalea, Anchee MIN [signed]
4 Anchee MIN [signed] Red Azalea
NY Pantheon Books 1994 067942332X / 9780679423324 1st Edition Hardcover As New As New Book Signed by Author(s)
Red Azalea is Anchee Min's celebrated memoir of growing up in the last years of Mao's China. As a child, she was asked to publicly humiliate a teacher; at seventeen, she was sent to work at a labor collective. Forbidden to speak, dress, read, write, or love as she pleased, she found a lifeline in a secret love affair with another woman. Miraculously selected for the film version of one of Madame Mao's political operas, Min's life changed overnight. Then Chairman Mao suddenly died, taking with him an entire world. A revelatory and disturbing portrait of China, Anchee Min's memoir is exceptional for its candor, its poignancy, its courage, and for its prose.

Limited Edition: Midnight in Garden, Berendt, John
6 Berendt, John Limited Edition: Midnight in Garden
NY Random House 1996 0679449574 / 9780679449577 Hardcover New No Jacket Issued Book Signed by Author(s)
A sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic. Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty, early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black débutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else.

8 Gary Mokotoff A Companion Guide To 'Where Once We Walked' Jewish Communities Central, Eastern Europe
New Jersey Avotaynu 1995 096263736x / 9780962637360 1st Edition Hardcover Fine No Jacket Issued Book 
Originally created in 1991, by Gary Mokotoff, to help genealogists trace their Jewish ancestors through pre holocaust Europe, Where Once We Walked: A Guide to the Jewish Communities Destroyed in the Holocaust is a primary resource for finding original town and community names across Europe for all types of researchers, including non-Jewish genealogists. Perhaps no other area in the world has seen as much political change and border movements as Central and Eastern Europe. Germany didn't exist until the late 1800s, Czechoslovakia didn't exist until the end of World War I, lost territory to Russia at the end of World War II, and was dissolved into two different countries by 1993. One example shows the "original" town of Lemberg, Austria changing names three time (four names) in just 85 years; Lember, Austria became Lwów, Poland then L'vov, USSR and finally L'viv, Ukraine. Even experienced geographers would have trouble keeping up with these names changes; especially when examining towns by the thousands. The WOWW Companion enables the reader to identify towns and villages and even to create a rough map of the areas of central and eastern Europe detailed in WOWW by using precision longitude and latitude mapping technology. Published in 1995, approx. 7x10 inches, and in fine condition.
