📒The Shadows Of Berlin ✍ Juan Goytisolo
✏The Shadows of Berlin Book Summary : In this collection of short stories, Dovid Bergelson captures life in Berlin at the precarious moment between world wars - in particular the experiences of Berlin's Jewish community and the uneasy existence of intellectual exiles in an often hostile city. Bergelson, who left his native Ukraine after experiencing one of the many thousands of pogroms first-hand, settled in Berlin at a time of excitement for its Jewish artists and intellectuals, as Yiddish literature and art flourished, all-too-briefly, in the German metropolis. The Shadows of Berlin is, in part, a bleak chronicle of life in a Europe growing ever more hostile at the edge of World War II. More than that, these stories offer glimpses into a community and a world now lost. They are also, in part, parables of modern life, drawing as much on the transformative possibility of scripture as they do on gritty depictions of the Berlin street. Bergelson's stories hint at the possibility of redemption even as they suggest a horror just around the corner.
📒Shadows Of Empire ✍ Laurie Jo Sears
✏Shadows of Empire Book Summary : Shadows of Empire explores Javanese shadow theater as a staging area for negotiations between colonial power and indigenous traditions. Charting the shifting boundaries between myth and history in Javanese Mahabharata and Ramayana tales, Laurie J. Sears reveals what happens when these stories move from village performances and palace manuscripts into colonial texts and nationalist journals and, most recently, comic books and novels. Historical, anthropological, and literary in its method and insight, this work offers a dramatic reassessment of both Javanese literary/theatrical production and Dutch scholarship on Southeast Asia. Though Javanese shadow theater (wayang) has existed for hundreds of years, our knowledge of its history, performance practice, and role in Javanese society only begins with Dutch documentation and interpretation in the nineteenth century. Analyzing the Mahabharata and Ramayana tales in relation to court poetry, Islamic faith, Dutch scholarship, and nationalist journals, Sears shows how the shadow theater as we know it today must be understood as a hybrid of Javanese and Dutch ideas and interests, inseparable from a particular colonial moment. In doing so, she contributes to a re–envisioning of European histories that acknowledges the influence of Asian, African, and New World cultures on European thought—and to a rewriting of colonial and postcolonial Javanese histories that questions the boundaries and content of history and story, myth and allegory, colonialism and culture. Shadows of Empire will appeal not only to specialists in Javanese culture and historians of Indonesia, but also to a wide range of scholars in the areas of performance and literature, anthropology, Southeast Asian studies, and postcolonial studies.

📒Out Of The Shadows ✍ Walt Odets
✏Out of the Shadows Book Summary : 'A gay man could read this book as if his life depended on it - and perhaps it does' Andrew Holleran, author of Dancer from the Dance Even in our modern progressive world, it's not easy to be a gay man. While young men often come out more readily, even those from the most liberal of backgrounds still struggle to accept themselves and experience stigma, shame and difficulties with intimate relationships. They also suffer from ongoing trauma wrought by the AIDS epidemic, something that is all too often relegated to history. Drawing on a lifetime's work as a clinical psychologist, Walt Odets uses the stories of his patients as well as those of his own deep relationships with other gay men to illuminate how these difficulties may be overcome. From a 74-year-old who only felt able to come out after his wife had died, to the boy raised in a strict religious family who worked his way to San Francisco, to the middle-aged defence lawyer who left everything behind to embrace a new life, the experiences here explore everything from grief to survival, childhood pain to the definition of gay itself. Out of the Shadows shows us how a new way forward is possible through learning to accept ourselves and others as they are, and independently inventing our own lives.
