A raw and powerful memoir of Jaycee Lee Dugard's own story of being kidnapped as an 11-year-old and held captive for over 18 years On 10 June 1991, eleven-year-old Jaycee Dugard was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in Tahoe, California. It was the last her family and friends saw of her for over eighteen years. On 26 August 2009, Dugard, her daughters, and Phillip Craig Garrido appeared in the office of her kidnapper's parole officer in California. Their unusual behaviour sparked an investigation that led to the positive identification of Jaycee Lee Dugard, living in a tent behind Garrido's home. During her time in captivity, at the age of fourteen and seventeen, she gave birth to two daughters, both fathered by Garrido. Dugard's memoir is written by the 30-year-old herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, utterly honest and unflinching narrative, Jaycee opens up about what she experienced, including how she feels now, a year after being found. Garrido and his wife Nancy have since pleaded guilty to their crimes.

A few months ago, Mary didn’t know she had any living relatives until Jake contacted her. He may be a few states away, but distance means nothing to him. He can go wherever he wants with his mind’s eye, except one place. It’s a place of death and shadows, and their relative Tracy Rathbone has been trapped there for nineteen years. Jake needs Mary’s help to bring her home. Mary is willing to help, but she’s cautious. Tracy is in the land of Shadowmen, the terrifying creatures that slip through cracks and take a person’s life force. Mary barely defeated one Shadowman in the past. Going up against an army of them would be impossible. She doesn’t need to worry about that though. Tracy has a plan. She just needs Jake to bring Mary to her. She’ll take care of the rest. Mary really should’ve asked more questions about the plan. Because it isn’t so much an escape plan as a trade, and Mary’s the one being traded. Abandoned, alone, and scared, Mary must figure out a way to get home and take back her stolen life.

The Stolen Life of a Cheerful Man explores the contentious yet universal themes of intolerance and understanding, discrimination and acceptance, violence and forgiveness. Dimitris Politis plunges boldly into the reality of contemporary Ireland, but from his own Greek perspective, creating an extraordinary mirror between the two countries, where glittering Aegean waves are crowned by Atlanic rainbows. The reader is drawn into the story through its exciting twists and turns, interlinked throughout by a fast cinematographic pace. An excellent contemporary example of black fiction with a subtle and delicate deepening of sentiments, feelings, and beliefs rooted in human nature, the novel voices a loud protest against social and historical stereotypes and is a stern warning of how intolerance and ignorance can lead to disaster. In today’s world, where countless countries are mired in financial crisis and where many forget the importance of tolerance and acceptance of their fellow human begins, the author cleverly reminds us that difference and diversity are universally present, shaping our world. This unique novel prompts us to remember that we are all born different and grow up differently, making each of us special in our own way, whatever our circumstances.
