Sayonara Singapura

Sayonara Singapura by Parapuram Joseph JohnI was editor of The Malaya Tribune, a daily newspaper in Singapore, sleepily okaying Page One when 17 Japanese Zero bombers shattered the night. It was December 8, 1941. Having been fed daily stories full of optimism from London, we in Singapore hadn't an inkling that war with Japan was imminent ... I sneaked out when there was a pause in the bombing. Limbs of every description - European, Indian, Chinese, Malay and Eurasian - were everywhere. Parapuram Joseph John - 'John' to all - is given an ultimatum by the Japanese invaders: work for us or face the consequences. He becomes No.2 at the Domei...

Literary Hasidism: The Life and Works of Michael Levi Rodkinson by Jonatan Meir

Michael Levi Rodkinson (1845-1904) was a journalist, author, and publisher whose literary projects spanned numerous countries and continents. Hero to some and scoundrel to others, Rodkinson was a polemical figure whose beliefs underwent many transformations over the course of his life, most significantly from Hasidism to combative Haskalah to eventually anticipating the neo-Romantic trends of the early twentieth century. Throughout his career, Rodkinson's writing challenged the familiar genres of the literature of Hasidism and the Haskalah, shaping the religious realities of his readers and...

Not Pretty Enough: The Unlikely Triumph of Helen Gurley Brown

Not Pretty Enough: The Unlikely Triumph of Helen Gurley Brown by Gerri Hirshey

A bold and deeply researched biography of a complicated cultural icon

When Helen Gurley Brown published Sex and the Single Girl in 1962, it sold more than two million copies in just three weeks, presaging the self-help boom and helping to usher in the unapologetic self-affirmation of second wave feminism. Brown declared that it was okay, even imperative, to enjoy sex outside of marriage; that equal rights for women should extend to the bedroom; that meaningful work outside the home was essential for a woman's security and self-esteem. The book catapulted Brown into national renown, cementing her...
