REMEMBERING JOSE RIZAL AND SISA, THE ANTI-POSTCOLONIAL DIFFEREND (tags)

June 19 this year marks the 53rd anniversary of the Philippines' national hero Jose Rizal's birthday. In Nov 1884, Rizal joined mass demonstrations in Madrid to protest the government's repressive policies. He wrote to his family:"Filipinos are dishonored, entrapped, debased, opposed and tyrannized," so he had to disguise himself three times. The following review centers on Rizal's ideas and Sisa, the character in Rizal's novel, who symbolizes the "wretched of the earth," discussed in E. San Juan's book, SISA'S VENGEANCE (available at amazon.com & createspace).

George Bush Meets Graham Greene (tags)

In any case, here’s the Bush statement today: “In 1955, long before the United States had entered the war, Graham Greene wrote a novel called ‘The Quiet American.’ It was set in Saigon and the main character was a young government agent named Alden Pyle. He was a symbol of American purpose and patriotism and dangerous naivete. Another character describes Alden this way: ‘I never knew a man who had better motives for all the trouble he caused.’...Maybe someone should tell him that Pyle, in the novel, helps arrange and then defends a terror bombing that kills and maims civilians. Or perhaps Bush only saw the misbegotten 1950s movie based on the book, which obscured Pyle's guilt.

A Disturbing Presence (tags)

Joy Lee Rutter A Disturbing Presence Press Release Contact: Joy Rutter Phone: (603) 539-7023 E-mail: joylee52@aol.com PO Box 326 Center Ossipee, NH 03814 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Author will send book for review at request. Please specify if PDF file is acceptable. New Hampshire Woman becomes author CENTER OSSIPEE, NH-Joy Lee Rutter started writing her first book on an impulse. Now, it is her passion. Born in Michigan, she came to New Hampshire by way of Florida. Rutter sacrificed college to marry immediately after graduating from high school. Five sons later, with her marriage beginning to crumble, she began keeping a journal after the birth of her youngest, to raise her spirits, and maintain her sense of humor. Then she began writing “tongue-in-cheek” humorous essays. Rutter’s first novel, A Disturbing Presence, became available September 1, 2003. It was not planned. It came into being following a zany conversation with her stepdaughter. Captivated by the ideas that the conversation prompted, Rutter started writing. Five months later, she had completed a first draft. In September, just one year from the time she began writing, the book is ready for distribution to booksellers, nationwide. Even Rutter is stunned by the acceptance of her first novel’s publication, on her first try. The author proudly describes A Disturbing Presence, as “something that has not been done in print or in the movies. It’s a little bit strange, but it’s filled with quite a bit of humor, too,” she says. “Folks who have read the book tell me they couldn’t put it down. At the very least, I think A Disturbing Presence is a compelling novel with an unusual, thought-provoking theme,” Rutter says. She already is working on her next book. Synopsis: This modern-day mystery takes place in a small town in NH. An elegant manor appears normal enough. You enter, look around at the widow's artwork & then walk into the private study of the late Eric McDuggal. Of course, you do not expect to see McDuggal sitting in an antique rocker. He is dead. What were the motives behind his bizarre death wish? While the house pets wreak havoc against the embalmed corpse, his widow remains in a self-imposed limbo, reluctant to find the answers. The disturbing presence of the hideous display causes her life to collapse into nightmares & apathy. An unlikely friendship between the taxidermist & widow develop; little do they know that his probing into McDuggal's background eventually leads to the discovery of a shocking childhood trauma. A Disturbing Presence has all of the ingredients for a great page-turner! Mystery, light horror, and humor, and eventually, romance. Title: A Disturbing Presence Author: Joy Lee Rutter Publication Date: September 2003 Publisher: America House of Publishing ISBN: 1-4137-0113-2 Item Status: Active Record Binding Format: Soft Cover Pages: 232 Retail Price: $19.95
