By Amarilis Presilla

It’s no wonder that Amarilis Presilla has titled her memoir “Sometimes I Would Like to Sit Down and Cry.” Reminiscing can be painful when she thinks back on all the hardships she has known—not just within her family but for the Cuban people as well. Since arriving in the United States from Cuba seven years ago, Amarilis has written it all down, reliving both the good and the bad.

Her idyllic childhood in the riverside village of Mayari was not to last. A powerful flood laid waste to her beloved town, yet this was nothing compared to the coming upheaval of Castro’s revolution. What follows is an epic tale of love, family, struggle, self-improvement, and rebellion. Finally escaping and reuniting with her family, Amarilis Presilla now shares her triumphant story with you.

No es nada extraño que Amarilis Presilla haya titulado sus memorias: “Algunas veces me gustaría sentarme y llorar”. Los recuerdos pueden ser muy dolorosos cuando ella mira hacia atrás y ve la sucesión de penas y maltratos que ha conocido, no solamente dentro de su familia sino también de todos los cubanos. Desde su llegada a los Estados Unidos desde la isla de Cuba en un vuelo directo siete años atrás, ella ha escrito una parte de las cosas que tuvo que vivir allí, reviviendo lo bueno y lo malo.

Su idílica niñez en su pequeño pueblo dentro de un valle con un río llamado Mayarí que duró muy poco tiempo. Una enorme creciente del río arrasó con todo, en conjunto con un fenómeno politico llamado Fidel Castro. Este libro es una historia épica de amor, familia, lucha por la supervivencia, por el propio desarrollo intelectual, y también de callada rebelión y desprecio a un régimen político. Al final la salida y la reunión con toda su familia. Amarilis Presilla ahora comparte su historia con ustedes.

By Sara Pizano, MA, DVM
Joan Rita Hahn Pizano was an eternal optimist and deeply spiritual. Her capacity to receive and give love was astounding and she was a beloved mother, wife, sister, aunt and friend. When her oncologist told her there were no more treatment options for her cancer, she faced the news with resolve and looked forward to the miracle of Heaven. Her lack of fear and depth of peace greatly helped her family and friends deal with the inevitable. But it was her sense of humor that impacted so many and as her daughter “chronicled” her last six months on earth, the stories evoked tears and laughter simultaneously. This is a story of a woman who was totally unafraid to die, who in fact embraced the process of the passing and who truly lived until she breathed her last breath.

When I was a kid in the late 1950s, while I was a student at Paoli Elementary School, I read the famous children’s book that talks about the Kid from Leftfield. Also around that time, I always said to myself, “What is it going to be like in the year 2000? I’ll be fifty years old!” I couldn’t comprehend being that old; the thought of it scared me, and I’d probably be in a wheelchair or something worse. I bet a lot of people my age thought the same thing. This is the story of what that kid did when he reached the age of fifty.

Can you imagine one day being on an airplane, flying from your hometown in the USA to the city of Moscow in the Soviet Union? Well, it's not a story you hear very often but it happened to an African-American college student from Brooklyn, New York - with extended family in the deep south - who traveled to Moscow, Russia during the Cold War to “rip the runway!” Atlanta-based author and playwright Jacqueline Clay Chester, spent seven weeks in Russia as a runway model for the American National Exhibition in Moscow. The twice daily fashion shows were a major attraction offering thousands of Russians a glimpse of life in the United States. How did Jacqueline's life experiences prepare her for this awesome adventure? What reaction did her family have to such a journey? As an African American would she find acceptance? Did Russia have a double standard when dealing with issues of race? If English was not spoken and Russian was not understood, what common thread united the two cultures? Black Girl in Moscow, A Memoir by Jacqueline Clay Chester, speaks about her experiences as a visitor to Russia during one of the most volatile times in history and like opening the Matrovskia dolls, the memories unfold one after the other!

By S.D. Michael

In the blink of an eye, a person’s entire existence can change forever. At eighteen, Samantha Michael learned this in the most challenging way imaginable, when she was in a severe car crash at the hands of an impaired driver. After being rescued from the accident, Samantha was comatose and barely alive. Later, as she emerged from her coma, she would come to discover that terrifying moment was not the end but the beginning—the beginning of a lifetime of challenges and changes, tribulations and triumphs.

With wisdom, grace and humour, Samantha recounts the aftermath of her injury and her personal, medical and emotional struggles to win back the happiness which was taken from her. She describes the impact on her family and friends, the lasting physical trauma with which she had to struggle, the pain of deferred dreams and the joy of eventually reclaiming her life and self, piece by piece, day by day. The Beauty of My Shadow will pluck a range of emotional chords as the reader experiences the euphoria, hope, doubt, fear, love and other feelings Samantha herself lived through in the days since her life was forever altered.

Written candidly and from the heart, Samantha’s story gives hope to those who have suffered similar trauma, as well as those who are simply wrestling with the ordinary challenges of daily life. Her memoir serves as a powerful reminder of the strength and versatility of the human spirit—that while adversity derails our path in life, undefeatable perseverance often helps us discover another route to take.

By May A. Rihani

I have never met anyone who so adeptly mixes academics, philosophy, technical know-how, advocacy, and common sense like May Rihani. I have watched with awe as she has applied her unique set of skills and made a difference in the lives of women and girls around the world.

 

Stephanie Funk, USAID Mission Director, Zimbabwe

 

 

May Rihani’s book is proof of the emptiness of three stereotypes: she challenges the idea that Arab women are submissive, that there are no democracies in the Middle East, and the notion of a “clash of civilizations.” Her life demonstrates global leadership by a Lebanese Arab woman, and her memoir describes a golden age in Lebanon when democracy and freedom of expression were taken for granted. Perhaps most importantly, Cultures Without Borders finds the common ground among cultures despite apparent differences. This is an eyewitness account of the rich and profound goodness in humanity.

 

H.E. Amine Gemayel, former President of Lebanon

 

 

Weaving between poetry and politics; evoking the intimacy of family and the openness of public service; at once struggling for local girls’ education/poverty alleviation and negotiating with World Bank and UN officers; laboring every day for economic development for women and yet running high romance with Romeo lovers; conversing equally with illiterate village friends and global leaders – May Rihani invites us into a Lebanese and American garden throbbing with its unfolding mystery; enchanted by fragrances of East, West and South; and exhilarated by the empowering possibility of a life lived fully every moment and yet always with an eye to the possibilities ahead.  She humbles, she empowers, she inspires.

 

Suad Joseph, Distinguished Research Professor, University of California, Davis

 

 

Cultures Without Borders contains important lessons for all those who aspire to live as productive global citizens in the twenty-first century. On the macro level, May Rihani’s book demonstrates the falsity of the “clash of civilizations” theory that posits inevitable conflict between peoples of differing cultures. Instead, through personal anecdotes and authoritative evidence drawn from real-world experiences, she demonstrates the universality of the impulse to transcend frontiers of the mind and connect peacefully with “the other” through education and dialogue.

It all started when I was about fifteen years old. I was playing for the Amateur Softball Association, or Junior Olympic Softball. I was a standout pitcher, throwing the ball about sixty-five miles an hour. I loved softball; it was my sport, and it was my passion. But something was taking over my body, my brain, and my soul. I wasn’t in control anymore. I used to throw no-hitters, strike batters out, and be proud of myself. But a switch went off in my brain. I was hearing voices; they were telling me to do certain things. I was paranoid, and it affected my pitching. My dad could no longer sit anywhere near where I was pitching because I could see his eyeballs. Those eyeballs were following me and distracting me, so he had to sit behind the outfield fence. I could hear what the batters were thinking, and I could hear what everyone in the stands where thinking. It ruined my career. The sad part about it was that nobody helped me. How could they have helped me? I never told anybody because I was so afraid. Was this normal? I sometimes think it started even earlier, maybe even as young as six years old. The voices and paranoia were so intense; sometimes I just wanted to end my life. Why did my parents not notice this? Why didn’t anybody notice this? I kept it all to myself and dealt with it myself.
