Explanation of the Book:

From the author of the worldwide bestseller Room: "Her greatest achievement yet...Emma Donoghue shows more than range with FROG MUSIC--she shows genius." -- Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life Summer of 1876: San Francisco is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heat wave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman named Jenny Bonnet is shot dead. The survivor, her friend Blanche Beunon, is a French burlesque dancer. Over the next three days, she will risk everything to bring Jenny's murderer to justice--if he doesn't track her down first.

It's the secret life of Jenny herself, a notorious character who breaks the law every morning by getting dressed: a charmer as slippery as the frogs she hunts. In thrilling, cinematic style, FROG MUSIC digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Full of songs that migrated across the world, Emma Donoghue's lyrical tale of love and bloodshed among lowlifes captures the pulse of a boomtown like no other.

Explanation of the Book:

Slammerkin: A loose gown; a loose woman. Born to rough cloth in Hogarth's London, but longing for silk, Mary Saunders's eye for a shiny red ribbon leads her to prostitution at a young age. A dangerous misstep sends her fleeing to Monmouth, and the position of household seamstress, the ordinary life of an ordinary girl with no expectations. But Mary has known freedom, and having never known love, it is freedom that motivates her. Mary asks herself if the prostitute who hires out her body is more or less free than the "honest woman" locked into marriage, or the servant who runs a household not her own? And is either as free as a man? Ultimately, Mary remains true only to the three rules she learned on the streets: Never give up your liberty. Clothes make the woman. Clothes are the greatest lie ever told.

Explanation of the Book:

It's 1937, the eve of World War II. At twenty-six years old, Rezsi Lehrer leaves Munkacs, a small charming city located deep within a remote corner of the Carpathian mountains and travels alone to the United States. War breaks out and Eastern European borders are sealed. Rezsi's family is trapped in Czechoslovakia and the packages she sends home are returned unopened. When the war ends, Rezsi discovers her parents, two brothers and scores of relatives perished in the Holocaust. Gypsy Music Street is the story of one woman's endless sorrow and guilt she suffers at the loss of her family, the family she left behind "to die alone." Yet she still yearns to return to her town, "the little Paris of the East," to see it just one more time. But after the war, countries borders are redrawn and Mukacevo is no longer located in Czechoslovakia. It becomes completely closed off within the iron grip of the Soviet Union and the political climate is one of Cold War. Mukacevo is off limits for travel. As the years pass, Rezsi reminisces, sharing her longing and grief about the past with her daughter Bobbie. And when she dies an old woman, her dream unfulfilled, Bobbie is driven by her own loss and grief to make this journey home for her mother, and for herself. Adventures in Budapest, Ukraine and Israel make Gypsy Music Street an enthralling memoir of love and loss. Yet, it is also a story of the overwhelming joy a daughter experiences when she travels back in time and discovers her own torn roots.

Explanation of the Book:

Hello, I'm Huey P. Cobb and the author of the book titled "GET IT HOW YOU LIVE." I started writing this story on December 26, 2011. As you can see all my hard work has now become a reality. The majority of the story was inspired by true events out of East Palo Alto. I'm explaining a real life street story about a town that became the Murder Capital of the world. The main characters are Madlock, DP, KK and Money T. The four men grew up together and remained loyal to each other over the years. They formed there own roguish living B.M.B street name which involved drugs, guns, murders, crime, cars, fights, parties, pretty women and a record label.This is my story and this is The B.M.B Creed. ..".It's always a blessing when making it through the thresh hold. It's like walking through a portal stepping into the unknown, knowing all the things you've done in the past places a tattoo scar upon your life. Something like an emotional shadow that lingers over head. A dark cloud waiting for the moment to rain down on you with no remorse. How many of us really last in the game before Lucifer is resurrected in the spirit of someone that's scorned. Then it's not about the money, it's about the redemtion of your soul. It becomes your turn to beg and plead for your life, asking for forgiveness speaking to deaf ears of no understanding. Pain, blame, loss and disgrace is replaced by the taste of sweetness knowing that you will be found face down in bad weather..." These men never disregarded the fact this would someday happen to them.This was the life they choose to live. Roguish livin BLACK MONEY BUSNIESS. East Palo Alto was dubbed the Murder Capital of the world by U.S. media in 1992. Eye survived the street war.
