Hindi Litterateur Harivansh Rai Bachchan was born in Allahabad in 1907, and acquired immense popularity in the 1930s through Madhushala, a long poem inspired by the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. Some three decades later, by now well established as a major figure on the Hindi literary scene, Bachchan wrote the first of four volumes of his autobiography, which was to earn widespread praise from critics and readers alike. In the Afternoon of Time is creative abridgement of these four volumes, translated into English for the first time. These intensely personal memoirs span several generations, tracing the history of Bachchan’s forebears, who came to live in Allahabad from a small village in Uttar Pradesh. With a bittersweet tone that recalls the lyricism of Madhushala, the author draws a portrait of provincial life in the first decades of the century, and describes with remarkable candour the struggles, joys and heartbreak of his early life. The narrative dwells at length on the death of his young wife and the ensuing trauma; remarriage, and a teaching assignment in the English department of Allahabad University; his Ph.D work on W.B. Yeats in Cambridge; a long stint as Hindi officer in the Ministry of External Affairs; an interlude in the Rajya Sabha; and the meteoric rise of his elder son Amitabh in the world of Hindi cinema. In his brilliant translation, Rupert Snell has succeeded in communicating the power and intensity that made the original work a classic in the genre of autobiographical writing in India.

I have chosen this title for my book because it fits the characteristics of a culture that develops fear, insecurity, doubts, and dishonesty in its very intelligent, ambitious, and hardworking people. This is a culture that treats boys and girls differently developing a sense of dominance, grandiosity, Narcissism, controlling, ignorance in men and a sense of passivity, inferiority, anxiety, and paranoia in women, the symptoms in either group present only pathology. The intention of this book is by no means to be religious or political but Iranian people in essence have been religious. The religion that its very beauty has less been known. It has been transformed to develop fear of God bringing the fear of bad consequences if not followed the concepts, rules, and practices created over time by the religious leaders whose qualifications are often questionable. It was this mentality of Iranians that was well recognized by western countries behind the revolution, well better known than Iranian themselves that helped the success of revolution in Iran. It was not the people's knowledge of who they are and who they want to choose. It is the self-identity, self-knowledge, and the self-respect that is highly missed. The culture emphasizes on the children's future social development but much less on the conscious healthy personality traits as they grow. Millions of Iranians demonstrated on the streets welcoming whom they did not know. The reaction to the outcome is now opposition demonstrating anti-religious attitudes, the religion the reality of which neither the people nor the leaders know. The current religious aggressive interpretation of Islam around the world is way far from the Spiritual Sufi mystic approach of Prophet Mohammad; the very true principle of which followed by great numerous Iranian men including Mowlana, Shams Tabrizi, Hafez. Saadi, and Baba Taher. It was the Mowlana’s book, translated from Farsi to English that sold 700,000 copies in 2013 in America. It is the intention of this book to help people to learn about their psychology to become less confused. My attention has been on the training and parenting issues throughout the book. I am wondering how a confused parent can raise a “not confused” kid.

In 1854, Wilhelm F. Kempe, 26, and his sister Auguste, 20, left their native Kingdom of Saxony in Europe for a new home in Texas. Remaining in Saxony were their aging, widowed father and a 10-year-old sister and an 8-year-old brother -- people who struggled for decades to reconcile their lives in the Old World with that of their relatives in the New World. Their letters to Wilhelm tell, often painfully, of the emotional toll this disruption took on the lives of family and friends who remained in the Fatherland. As the only connection betwen his family in Europe and his family in America, Wilhelm carried the weight of both. Over half a century he coped with all of their needs, as well as the Civil War and the desires of others who wanted to leave Europe and join him in Texas -- challenges that come alive through the letters they wrote.

The first full scale biography of Wallis Simpson to be written by a woman, exploring the mind of one of the most glamorous and reviled figures of the Twentieth Century, a character who played prominently in the blockbuster film The King's Speech. This is the story of the American divorcee notorious for allegedly seducing a British king off his throne. "That woman," so called by Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, was born Bessie Wallis Warfield in 1896 in Baltimore. Neither beautiful nor brilliant, she endured an impoverished childhood, which fostered in her a burning desire to rise above her circumstances. Acclaimed biographer Anne Sebba offers an eye-opening account of one of the most talked about women of her generation. It explores the obsessive nature of Simpson's relationship with Prince Edward, the suggestion that she may have had a Disorder of Sexual Development, and new evidence showing she may never have wanted to marry Edward at all. Since her death, Simpson has become a symbol of female empowerment as well as a style icon. But her psychology remains an enigma. Drawing from interviews and newly discovered letters, That Woman shines a light on this captivating and complex woman, an object of fascination that has only grown with the years.
