'We go.' The lascar meditatively pressed his face, brown and begrimed with coal dust, streaked here and there with sweat, against the rope which formed the rough bulwark. His dark eyes were fixed on the shore near by, between which and the ship's side the water quivered quicker and quicker in little ripples, each ripple carrying an iridescent film of grey ooze. Without joy or sadness he was bidding goodbye to Bombay, his city. Those goodbyes are often farewells for lascars who must face the Bay and the Channel. But the stoker did not care. His companion lay by his side, lazily propped up on his elbow, not deigning even to take a last look at the market place, seething still with its crowded reds and blues and golds. 'Dekko!' cried the first stoker pointing to the wharf where a white man in a dirty smock had just cast off the last rope, which came away swishing through the air.

Rose Chan, “Queen of Striptease” at just 27 years old, enthralled men young and old in the heyday of cabaret in 1950s Malaya. Her accidental shot to fame, thanks to a wardrobe malfunction in which her bra snapped, catapulted her into the limelight. In No Bed of Roses, Cecil Rajendra pens an account of her life — her childhood in Soochow, China, and then in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, her five marriages and personal struggles, how she circumvented the colonial decency laws that forbade nudity, and finally her fight with cancer that took her life in 1987 at the age of 62.

It is here, from the bestselling pen of Katherine Stone, that this enthralling story unfolds. He had never been in love—until her . . . He is the stunning and powerful Chase Tessier, the gray-eyed maestro who creates the liquid poetry that is Tessier wine. And she had never been loved at all—until him . . . She is Cassandra Winter, the fierce and fragile waif who joyfully gave him her heart during an enchanted summer when the air was fragrant with newborn grapes and moonlit roses. But it was she who left their love. And now . . . Now the uncertain waif is a celebrated actress. She lies in intensive care, the victim of a merciless assault, ravaged, broken, and needing him.

Germany, WWI and WWII: War devastates the lives of ordinary citizens. While the country’s face was changing and men died in battle by the millions, the women’s psyche and role was also changing. Ursula Meister, an insatiably curious child, has an innate sense of independence and is a keen observer. Coming-of-age after the end of WWII, Ursula’s sense of self is adversely affected by her mother, a beautiful but repressive, insensitive, punishing woman. Ursula longs for her father, a soldier in the German army who is absent during her formative years. However, when he finally returns, she feels estranged. Finding solace in listening to family tales through her Aunt Lidia’s storytelling, Ursula learns of the women before her who survived hardships more severe than hers. Faced with war time’s extreme insecurity, but equipped with intelligence and strength, Ursula must find for herself her true beliefs, her worth, and eventually her freedom and independence. Uta Christensen writes a poignant and engrossing coming-of-age story and family saga that explores the emotional boundaries of family dynamics—in the lives, loves, losses, and joys of three generations—and the strength of the women bearing the brunt of tragedy. A beautiful and compelling read, Bed of Roses, Bed of Thorns will stay with you long after the final page is read.

Life Isn't Always a Bed of Roses is a collecting of poems that deal with life and its many facets. From soft palatable verse to raw chunks of pseudo reality the poems take you on a journey across the barriers of realms seldom visited by most. Although it falls in the genre of poetry it is actually humanistic verse for the common folk. Hopefully youll laugh a little, maybe even cry a little but most of all it should make you think about life from a number of different viewpoints.
