A Good African Story: How a Small Company Built a Global Coffee Brand

Andrew Rugasira

A Good African Story: How a Small Company Built a Global Coffee Brand by Andrew Rugasira

Since it was founded in 2003, Good African Coffee has helped thousands of farmers earn a decent living, send their children to school and escape a spiral of debt and dependence. Africa has received over $1 trillion in aid over the last fifty years and yet despite these huge inflows, the continent remains mired in poverty, disease and systemic corruption. In A Good African Story, Andrew Rugasira argues that trade has achieved what years of aid failed to deliver, and has provided a tantalising glimpse of what Africa could be.

As he recounts the very personal story of his company and the challenges...

"When they're no longer surprised or astonished or engaged by what you say, the ball game is over. If they find it repulsive, or outlandish, or disgusting, that's all right, or if they love it, that's all right, but if they just shrug it off, it's time to retire."

-- Terry Southern

A Grand Guy

He was the hipster's hipster, the perfect icon of cool. A small-town Texan who disdained his "good ol' boy" roots, he bopped with the Beats, hobnobbed with Sartre and Camus, and called William Faulkner friend. He was considered one of the most creative and original players in the Paris Review Quality Lit...

A Great Big Girl Like Me: The Films of Marie Dressler

A Great Big Girl Like Me: The Films of Marie Dressler by Victoria SturtevantIn this study of Marie Dressler, MGM's most profitable movie star in the early 1930s, Victoria Sturtevant analyzes Dressler's use of her body to challenge Hollywood's standards for leading ladies. At five feet seven inches tall and two hundred pounds, Dressler was never considered the popular "delicate beauty," often playing ugly ducklings, old maids, doting mothers, and imperious dowagers. However, Dressler's body, her fearless physicality, and her athletic slapstick routines commanded the screen. Although an unlikely movie star, Dressler represented for Depression-era audiences a sign of abundance...

A Great Unrecorded History: A New Life of E. M. Forster by Wendy Moffat

A REVELATORY LOOK AT THE INTIMATE LIFE OF THE GREAT AUTHOR--AND HOW IT SHAPED HIS MOST BE LOVED WORKS



With the posthumous publication of his long-suppressed novel Maurice in 1970, E. M. Forster came out as a homosexual-- though that revelation made barely a ripple in his literary reputation. As Wendy Moffat persuasively argues in A Great Unrecorded History, Forster's homosexuality was the central fact of his life. Between Wilde's imprisonment and the Stonewall riots, Forster led a long, strange, and imaginative life as a gay man. He preserved a vast archive of his private life--a history of...

A Gringa in Bogot?: Living Colombia's Invisible War by June Carolyn ErlickTo many foreigners, Colombia is a nightmare of drugs and violence. Yet normal life goes on there, and, in Bogotá, it's even possible to forget that war still ravages the countryside. This paradox of perceptions-outsiders' fears versus insiders' realities-drew June Carolyn Erlick back to Bogotá for a year's stay in 2005. She wanted to understand how the city she first came to love in 1975 has made such strides toward building a peaceful civil society in the midst of ongoing violence. The complex reality she found comes to life in this compelling memoir.

After rattling around for a while he decided to act upon a prewar dream of hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, a decision that was spurred by reading a magazine article stating that such a feat was likely impossible. Earl achieved his goal, and history's muse presented him with a personal niche in her gallery. Over the course of three decades he...

A Guest at the Shooters' Banquet: My Grandfather's SS Past, My Jewish Family, A Search for the Truth by Rita GabisRita Gabis comes from a family of Eastern European Jews and Lithuanian Catholics. She was close to her Catholic grandfather as a child and knew one version of his past: prior to immigration he had fought the Russians, whose brutal occupation of Lithuania destroyed thousands of lives before Hitler's army swept in.

Five years ago, Gabis discovered an unthinkable dimension to her family story: from 1941 to 1943, her grandfather had been Chief of Security Police under the Gestapo in the Lithuanian town of Svencionys, near the killing field of Poligon, where 8,000 Jews were murdered over three days...

A Hand Not Shortened

A Hand Not Shortened by Bill JeynesA Hand Not Shortened is a comprehensive theological book on the creative workings of the grace of God in ten of the great individuals of the Bible. Very few books examine exegetically the dynamics of the grace of God in such detail. The primary theme of the book is that God adjusts the workings of His grace to each of these great individuals' situations. Theologically speaking, God's grace is not restricted to parameters that apply only to pristine individuals or to those who were raised in privileged circumstances. Rather, God's grace is characterized by great flexibility to reach any individual...

A Haunted House by Virginia WoolfWhatever hour you woke there was a door shutting. From room to room they went, hand in hand, lifting here, opening there, making sure-a ghostly couple. Stooping, holding their silver lamp above us, long they look and deeply. Long they pause. The wind drives straightly; the flame stoops slightly. Wild beams of moonlight cross both floor and wall, and, meeting, stain the faces bent; the faces pondering; the faces that search the sleepers and seek their hidden joy.

A Higher Purpose: Profiles in Presidential Courage

Thomas J. Whalen

A Higher Purpose: Profiles in Presidential Courage by Thomas J. WhalenIn the American political system today, courage and the presidency are rarely spoken of in the same sentence.

A History of Britain in 21 Women

Jenni Murray

A History of Britain in 21 Women by Jenni MurrayI was ten years old when I came across Boadicea, and she became the first woman to make me realise that the designated future of a girl born in 1950 – to be sweet, domesticated, undemanding and super feminine – was not necessarily the case.

Boadicea battled the Romans. Nancy Astor fought in Parliament. Emmeline Pankhurst campaigned for female suffrage. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson became a pioneering physician in a man

A family memoir that traces the myths, legends, and secrets of seven generations of remarkable women

All families have their myths and legends. For many years Juliet Nicolson accepted hers--the dangerous beauty of her flamenco dancing great-great-grandmother Pepita, the flirty manipulation of her great-grandmother Victoria, the infamous eccentricity of her grandmother Vita Sackville-West, her mother's Tory-conventional background. But then Juliet, a distinguished historian, started to question. As she did so, she sifted fact from fiction, uncovering details and secrets long held just out of sight....

A House in Flanders

Michael Jenkins

A House in Flanders by Michael JenkinsIn 1951 a fouteen-year-old boy was sent to spend the summer with his aunts in Flanders, a household consisting of elderly ladies who had previously been connected (in a way that was never fully explained to him) with his own family. Within a day he had been embraced by the house and within weeks he was irrevocably entwined with a family that had taken him to their hearts. As he explored this new world and made it his own, the days ran together in a seamless web that seemed to stand still.

He befriended Auden and Isherwood while at Oxford, and together the three had wildly transgressive adventures in Europe and were early vocal critics of Hitler and the rise of fascism in their celebrated writings. Like his friends, Spender was drawn to other men, yet he eventually married Natasha, a world-renowned concert pianist, and started...

A Human Deadline

Derryn Hinch

A Human Deadline by Derryn HinchWe were in the doctor's office and it sounded like something out of a B Grade movie when I said: 'Give it to me straight ... how long have I got?' He'd just told me I had cancer, compounded by advanced cirrhosis of the liver. The doctor's reply: 'Twelve months'. There was a chance I could live longer if I could get a rare liver transplant but there were hurdles to get over just to get on The List. I knew that, at any time, there are about 2000 Australians waiting for organ donors to save their lives. And 20% die waiting. To complicate things, I was fighting another battle. This one in the courts...
