In her critically acclaimed first book, Johnny’s Girl, Kim Rich presented the story of her unconventional childhood as the daughter of an Alaskan mobster and a troubled showgirl. This new memoir picks up where Johnny’s Girl left off, retelling the story of the author’s nearly lifelong pursuit to live what she thought to be “a normal life.” Rich tugs at your heartstrings as you follow her journey toward normalcy, from her teen years, freshly orphaned, through her high school years spent couch-surfing at local families’ homes, then through her itinerant college years, a failed first marriage, and a rising career as a journalist. Through frank and down-to-earth storytelling, Rich also tells of her grandfather’s kidnapping, a frightening health crisis, and a six-year attempt to have children. In A Normal Life, Rich recounts her vivid story of being an ordinary girl faced with extraordinary circumstances—at seemingly every turn in life—with grace, humility, and wit.

Stem cells have a prominent role in normal life and also in pathogenesis of disorders. Today, these cells are clinically applicable in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation but expansion of their application in many more disorders needs more work. For safe and effective application of these cells, we need better knowledge of their biology, their interaction with other cells (especially supporting niche cells), growth, maturation and also immigration of stem cells through body in normal and abnormal conditions. Also for clinical application we need to understand better, their separation methods and safe manipulation. This book is written to clarify some aspects of stem cell biology, their characteristics, assessment of damage to cells during ex vivo manipulation and also their role in a model of cancers (chronic myeloid leukemia).
In this “wise and engaging memoir,” the acclaimed playwright and historian recalls coming of age in the 1950s as a polio survivor (Chicago Tribune). In the summer of 1953, Charles Mee author was a carefree, athletic boy of fourteen. But after he collapsed during a school dance one night, he was suddenly bedridden, drifting in & out of consciousness, as his body disintegrated into a shadow of its former self. He had been stricken with spinal polio. When Mee emerged from the grip of the disease, he was confronted with a life change so enormous that it challenged his beliefs and his very sense of self. His once normal life, filled with baseball, swimming pools, and dreams of girls, had been irreversibly altered. A Nearly Normal Life is a textured portrait of life in the fifties, a time when America and its fighting spirit collided with this terrible disease. Both funny and profound, Mee unravels the mysteries of youth in a Cold War climate, and shows how his self-recognition as a disabled outsider heightened his brilliant talents.

Read examines the relationship between an ethics of performance, a politics of place and a poetics of the urban environment.Alan Read asserts that there is no split between the practice and theory of theatre, but a divide between the written and the unwritten. In this revealing book, he sets out to retrieve the theatre of spontaneity and tactics, which grows out of the experience of everyday life. It is a theatre which defines itself in terms of people and places rather than the idealised empty space of avant garde performance.Read examines the relationship between an ethics of performance, a politics of place and a poetics of the urban environment. His book is a persuasive demand for a critical theory of theatre which is as mentally supple as theatre is physically versatile.

Parental love was in short supply when Aura Angel was growing up, in a household where there was so little money that her parents would burn the floorboards of their council house to keep warm in winter. Her father would beat her at the slightest excuse, and when he left home her mother took over, using brooms and kitchen implements to make sure the blows hurt. Her mother’s conflicts with authority led Aura (not her real name) to eight schools and more than 20 homes before finally, at 12 years old, she marched into the local Social Services offices and asked them to take care of her. Her troubles were far from over; an abortion at 16 followed and two children by fathers who badly let her down. Yet now, in her forties, she is at peace with herself. She has written A Normal Life as “a counselling tool for myself”. It is an extraordinary and moving story, candidly and sensitively written.
Complete edition of the The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. A giant among Christian guides, Nee invites the reader to move much deeper into a practicing Christian life, more than the reader thought possible. It is cited by many readers as the best book they have ever read, and a powerful study of Romans. He began his church ministry in 1922 in Fuzhou, China. For 30 years he planted churches, wrote, and travelled to promote Christ. He died after 20 years as a religious prisoner, never ceasing to preach the gospel of Christ. "What is the normal Christian life? We do well at the outset to ponder this question. The object of these studies is to show that it is something very different from the life of the average Christian. Indeed a consideration of the written Word of God--of the Sermon on the Mount for example--should lead us to ask whether such a life has ever in fact been lived upon the earth, save only by the Son of God Himself. But in that last saving clause lies immediately the answer to our question." No student of thought should be without this historic book. This edition is provided in a slim volume with full text at an affordable price.
