The Girls at 17 Swann Street: A Novel

*A BookMovement Group Read***A People Pick for Best New Books** Yara Zgheib’s poetic and poignant debut novel is a haunting portrait of a young woman’s struggle with anorexia on an intimate journey to reclaim her life. The chocolate went first, then the cheese, the fries, the ice cream. The bread was more difficult, but if she could just lose a little more weight, perhaps she would make the soloists’ list. Perhaps if she were lighter, danced better, tried harder, she would be good enough. Perhaps if she just ran for one more mile, lost just one more pound.Anna Roux was a professional dancer who followed the man of her dreams from Paris to Missouri. There, alone with her biggest fears – imperfection, failure, loneliness – she spirals down anorexia and depression till she weighs a mere eighty-eight pounds. Forced to seek treatment, she is admitted as a patient at 17 Swann Street, a peach pink house where pale, fragile women with life-threatening eating disorders live. Women like Emm, the veteran; quiet Valerie; Julia, always hungry. Together, they must fight their diseases and face six meals a day.Every bite causes anxiety. Every flavor induces guilt. And every step Anna takes toward recovery will require strength, endurance, and the support of the girls at 17 Swann Street.

Gurdjieff A Beginner's Guide: How Changing the Way We React to Misplacing Our Keys Can Transform Our Lives

Excerpts of several of the sixteen five-star reviews on Amazon.comThe clearest and most useful book on the basics: This book presents an excellent and comprehensive overview of Gurdjieff's "the work" with wonderfully clear examples and explanations of its practical applications.Best book about The Work: Until I found your book, the literature (Commentaries, etc.) about the Work was quite immense and confusing. Now I am able to do the practices and find my life and my self changing at long, long last.Friedman’s book has translated Gurdjieff into ordinary understandable English. I would highly recommend this book as a place to start.I have more than 50 books on Gurdjieff’s and Ouspensky’s Work on my shelves, but this is no doubt the most practical one for beginners.I want to express my appreciation for for your Beginner's Guide to Guerdjieff's philosophy. Before reading your book, I have read several books on Guerdjieff , and at times, got lost in the complexity of what I was reading, and left wondering. It is not until I read your book, that Gurdjieff's philosophy emerged to the light, and resonated deeply within me.

Samurai: Cherry Blossoms Fall

‘To paraphrase the famous words of the Three Great Shoguns of Japan: “Little Bird - if you do not read this book, you will miss something good in the wind.” In these stories and excerpts Alex and Josh show their deep interest in samurai, and approach the subject with the respect and sophistication due to the twofold Way of the pen and the sword.’ —Sean Michael Wilson, author of manga versions of The Book of Five Rings and The 47 Ronin "Stories as sharp as a samurai blade." —Chris Bradford author of the Young Samurai and Bodyguard series Samurai commonly describes a warrior in Japan who serves a lord, using combat skills and living by the code of Bushidō. But not everyone followed the code so directly, nor was every samurai so bold and courageous. So while the truth is somewhere between the idealized icon of fidelity and bravery, and bullies with swords, this work features the samurai who lived by their code. Inspired by the great and legendary samurai themselves, this work of original short stories and poetry is meant to evoke, however briefly, life from the viewpoint of the samurai.
