Sticklebacks And Snow Globes

by B. A. Goodjohn, Sticklebacks And Snow Globes Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Sticklebacks And Snow Globes books, Tot is good at watching, waiting and working things out. And there's a lot that demands close attention: her own epilepsy, an older sister who never wants to play anymore, a best friend who's changed her name to Roger, and a father who dreams of making it as a jazz trumpeter in New Orleans. Sticklebacks and Snow Globes captures daily life on a 1970s council-house estate just outside of London through the experiences of a group of neighbourhood kids. Accompanying Tot are her sister, Dorothy, who is increasingly preoccupied with her own grown-up problems; Stacey, who longs to be a boy; Lilly, who is getting herself a bit of a reputation; and let's not forget Keesal the 'Paki' and Seamus the retard. And ruling the roost are the hard-working, put-upon mothers with all their scary tales of womanhood to absorb. In her beguiling debut, B.A. Goodjohn follows these endearing characters over the course of one year, reminding us all of the pleasure and pain of childhood. Sticklebacks and Snow Globes dissects the intricacies of working-class life - but this time from a girls' perspective - and will appeal to anyone who remembers being young, whether with nostalgia or with horror.

The Beginning Things

by , The Beginning Things Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download The Beginning Things books, ABOUT The Beginning Things is a novel of lessons and of steps towards redemption. Twelve-year-old Tot Thompson, mourning the loss of her father and stranded on an island of familial dysfunction, finds a moment of importance in a neighbor's bed. Dan Grad, her recently widowed grandfather, finds a sharp-edged peace inside a bottle of Bells Whiskey. Both have lessons to learn...and strangely enough, important lessons to teach. REVIEWS "Watch out. You can get dangerously attached to the people of Tot Thompson's world. Dangerous because the last page WILL COME and you shall realize it's only a book." -"Carolyn Chute, author of The Beans of Egypt, Maine and others." "The Beginning Things contains three coming-of-age stories, all of them beautifully told with equal parts toughness and tenderness. Readers will recognize important truths about themselves and their lives as lived through Tot, the pre-teen; Elaine, Tot's single mother, and Dan, Elaine's recently widowed father-in-law. Goodjohn balances each of their stories with dry humor and a strong sense of the importance of both endings and beginnings, as well as the battles and triumphs of the in-betweens. This is a rare book, wound tight as thread around a finger, and as lyrical as everyday things fully realized. I have nothing but praise for its wise and insightful author. Enter the world of The Beginning Things, and you will not want to emerge again until the very last word." -"Morgan Callan Rogers, author of Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea " ABOUT THE AUTHOR Bunny Goodjohn was born in London in 1960 and moved to the United States in 1999. She is published in both prose and poetry and her books include "Sticklebacks and Snow Globes" (Permanent Press 2007, Scribe 2008, Centrepolygraph 2008) and "Bone Song" (Briery Creek Press 2015).
