Love Letters from Transylvania

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/love-letters-from-transylva...
Hugh Kiernan's memoir cycles, tantalisingly but purposefully, among different modes-expository, dramatic, narrative, and descriptive-and sometimes blurs the boundary between fiction and nonfiction. But the effect of the whole is perhaps best described as lyrical, as the prose has the compression and metaphorical openness characteristic of poetry. The result is a narrative that powerfully communicates the disorientation and even self-estrangement attendant on a life-changing, and life-threatening, condition. An achievement rare in my experience of illness narrative. Emeritus Professor G Thomas Couser Author of Memoir: An introduction and Recovering Bodies: Illness, disability and life writing Hugh Kiernan's writing inhabits liminal spaces between health and illness. His carefully crafted stories differ from the usual first-person memoir tradition adopted by authors making sense of their illness experiences. He uses experiences of other ill people or his experience with a context or with inanimate objects or a trying situation to structure stories that provide compelling insights into the world of health care. Emeritus Professor Annette Street Author of Inside Nursing, Nursing Replay and Thinking, Acting, Reflecting An extraordinary memoir: a journey into a netherworld where both the surreal and the achingly real, pain and morphine-induced euphoria, are seamlessly interwoven. Hugh Kiernan is a participant-observer, a witness to his experience of cancer, unflinching in his attention to detail, yet transcendent in capturing the flow of the journey. Arnold Zable Author of Violin Lessons and Café Scheherazade

How To Ask For More And Get It is not, as the title might suggest, a book for the greedy, pursuing compulsive and unrealistic dreams of acquiring more worldly wealth. Rather, it is designed to help the average person get his due in the thousands of exchanges, both mundane and important, that punctuate his or her life," says Francis Greenburger and Thomas Kiernan. All of us are confronted daily with countless exchanges, both ordinary and extraordinary, the outcomes of which largely define the quality of our lives. In fact, the Exchange is the single most frequent and important process of our interpersonal existence. Negotiation is the art of consistently turning these exchanges to one's advantage, and this book shows how to master this art. Using examples from real-life situations, the authors show you how to develop your basic negotiating skills-how to state your criteria, who makes the first move, what tactics to use, how to set your goals and establish a strategy-in short, how to win! Whether you are an employee bargaining for a raise, the tenant applying for a lease, the homeowner planning an expansion, the spouse settling a quarrel, a man with an attractive young lady in mind…whether you are the layman or the professional, this book will teach you how to make the most of the exchanges which touch every facet of your life."Imagine yourself in any of the following situations: You are about to walk into a realtor's office to make an offer on your dream house or to rent the apartment you've finally found after months of searching…You are about to sit down with your spouse's lawyer to discuss the financial terms of your impending divorce…Tomorrow you are to appear for you final interview with a company you feel sure will offer you the job you have been seeking, at which your salary and other benefits will be decided…You are about to sit down with an auditor from the IRS…The "bottom line" of such exchanges is that we either gain or lose by them, financially and otherwise
