The Days That Don’t Disappear by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.

This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.

Excerpts

“She was in her mid-forties. Tall, maybe six foot, or maybe she just seemed taller to me back then. She had a mass of curly black and grey hair along with the most sunken-in, dark-ringed eyes I had ever seen. It was the same pattern as before. Belt every day, hair pulling, screaming fits and the day she slammed my head into the desk that was it, that was enough, this was the day my inexplicable illness began.”

“Day after day, month after month, continual fear, wondering which way she was going to blow next and what little thing would kick off her volatile temper. I was given the belt nearly every other day for something or other and I simply came to expect it. Get a question wrong or miss church on Sunday with the rest of the class and her best friend would be out of the drawer. That piece of brown leather, half an inch thick, two inches wide and a foot long. She would raise it high above her head then bring it down sharply over your outstretched palm.”

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they’re invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day’s stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the next day into the Valley of the Kings—on stubborn little (sure-footed?) donkeys. Their luxurious Winter Palace Hotel is all but empty in the over 100 degrees of August, and consequently they are catered to like VIPs!
The Egyptian people are welcoming, and their warmth and interest in knowing Americans is obvious in how they name themselves and their camels after our famous people!
This is a book adults and young people will enjoy.

Three Men and a Quote by Ken McEwan

Reading the local paper is second nature to many people. Somehow it just turns up every week. But who are the people who provide our fix of local news and scandal? What tales could they tell of what really goes on behind the headlines? Here, three journalists with nearly 150 years’ collective experience tell their linked stories. Ken McEwan, John Dowling and Philip Elms began their careers in the same small office on the south coast of England in the 1960s. They went on to follow different strands of journalism. Eventually, they left the industry together as the recession of 2009 ravaged the newspaper business. Their stories are often revealing, sometimes funny, occasionally sad, but never dull. Who better to put a human face on life at the local paper?
