Largeprint Our price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

In May of 2012, Janine di Giovanni travelled to Syria; she began reporting from both sides of the conflict, witnessing its descent into one of the most brutal conflicts in recent history. Speaking to those directly involved in the war, di Giovanni relays the personal stories of rebel fighters thrown in jail; of children and families forced to watch loved ones taken and killed by regime forces. Stories of the elite holding pool parties, trying to deny the human consequences of the nearby shelling. It is an unforgettable testament to human resilience in the face of devastating, unimaginable horrors.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £14.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

LARGE PRINT EDITION FOR EASY READING: When Mazal and Ezra ben-Yichya embarked in 1882 on their long journey from Sana'a to the Holy Land, their young hearts were filled with dreams of the glory they were sure awaited them in Jerusalem. But those dreams were quickly dispelled by the reality they encountered: dark, towering walls of stone and a community of pious but impoverished Jews with customs foreign to them. How would the ben-Yichyas find their place in this new world peopled by European Torah scholars, and who would buy the exquisite jewelry they fashioned? This stirring saga spans four generations of a family of Yemenite goldsmiths at the vortex of history in the Land of Israel. Their tragedies and triumphs, their sorrows and joys, and most of all, the heroine's profound love for the Holy City, create a vivid and lasting image of an ancient land rising from two millennia of slumber to an era of splendor.

51. Winnie-the-Pooh in Ukrainian A Translation of A. A. Milne's "Winnie-the-Pooh" into Ukrainian - A. A. MilneBoris Vladimirovich ZakhoderSam Sloan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £9.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Winnie-the-Pooh is the most popular children's book in Ukraine. It is also the most popular children's book in the world, but it is especially popular in Ukraine because the Bear in a popular animal in Ukraine.

Ukrainian is spoken by forty-five million people. By land area, Ukraine is the largest country in Europe that is entirely within Europe, as Russia and Turkey are mostly outside of Europe and the area of France includes “overseas regions”. The 2014 Ukrainian revolution took place on 21 February 2014 when the pro-Russian President Yanukovych fled the county and a pro-Western government took power the following day. Ever since there have been constant threats by Russia to try to take back Ukraine and the situation between the two countries has remained tense.

This translation into Ukrainian is part of project to translate Winnie-the-Pooh into other languages. The idea is children need to learn to read at an early age and the best way to teach them to read is to provide reading materials that they find interesting. Children around the world laugh when they see Winnie-the-Pooh saying and doing silly things. Since Winnie-the-Pooh is the most popular children's book world-wide, translating this book into the different languages of the world will be conducive to teaching children to read in those languages.

Ishi Press has reprinted translations of Winnie-the-Pooh into 41 languages thus far. We have published it in Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cebuano, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Finnish, French, Frisian, German, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Sinhalese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Yiddish, Hindi, Urdu, Khowar, Kalasha and Latin.

52. Workbook Memos & Dispatches on Writing (Large Print 16pt) - Steven Heighton

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Since selections first appeared in the New Quarterly and the National Post as part of ''The Afterword,'' Steven Heighton's memos and dispatches to himself - a writer's pointed, cutting take on his own work and the work of writing - have been tweeted and retweeted, discussed and tacked to bulletin boards everywhere. Coalesced, completed, and collected here for the first time, a wholly new kind of book has emerged, one that's as much about creative process as it is about created product, at once about living life and the writing life. &Idquo; stick to a form that bluntly admits its own limitation and partiality and makes a virtue of both things,'' Heighton writes in his foreword, ''a form that lodges no claim to encyclopedic completeness, balance, or conclusive truth. At times, this form (I'm going to call it the memo) is a hybrid of the epigram and the pr cis, or of the aphorism and the abstract, the maxim and the debater's initial be - it - resolved. At other times it's a meditation in the Aurelian sense, a dispatch - to - self that aspires to address other selves - readers - as well.'' It's in these very aspirations, reaching both back into and forward in time - and, ultimately, outside of the pages of the book itself - that Heighton offers perhaps the freshest, most provocative picture of what it means to create the literature of the modern world.

53. Writing the Afro-Hispanic Essays on Africa and Africans in the Spanish Caribbean - Conrad James

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £32.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

The impact of the African Diaspora in Spanish America is far greater than is understood or acknowledged in the English speaking world. Connected initially to the Spanish-Caribbean through trans-Atlantic slavery, Africa is so deeply ingrained in the biology and culture of these countries that, in the words of the Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén, it would require the work of a 'miniaturist to disentangle that hieroglyph.' Through complex explorations of narratives of Spanish Blacks in the Caribbean this collection of essays builds critically on mid and late twentieth century Afro-Hispanist scholarship and thereby amplifies the terms in which Africans in the Americas are generally discussed. Each of these essays deals with a pivotal aspect of the African experience in the Spanish speaking Caribbean from the period of slavery to the present day. The essays focus on Black African cultures in Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic as well as in the circum Caribbean areas of Mexico and Colombia. In the process they cover a vast and highly involved range of issues including abolition and the politics of anti-slavery rhetoric, African women's political activism, performance poetry and female embodiment of the Black Diaspora, the Cuban Revolution and its investment in African liberation struggles, race and intra-Caribbean migration, ritualised spirituality and African healing practices among others. Through their investigation of both official and popular cultures in the Caribbean not only do the essays in this volume show the indispensable functions of African cultural capital in the Spanish speaking Caribbean but they also underline the multiple demographic, socio-political and institutional imperatives that are at stake in considering contemporary understandings of the African Diaspora.

56. Exit Laughing How Humor Takes the Sting Out of Death (Large Print 16pt) - Victoria Zackheim

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Exit Laughing is more than a collection of twenty-four personal stories, written by some of our country's finest authors, on the subject of death and humor. It's a reminder that all of us approach death in very different ways. Whether we face our death or the death of a loved one with fear, sorrow, joy, or confusion, and whether or not we believe in an afterlife, we cannot deny that death happens. Exit Laughing reminds us that in death there is a place for humor. Ellen Sussman writes of flying home her mother's body and watching her mother's burial wardrobe spill out on the baggage carousel. Kathi Kamen Goldmark regales us with memories of playing the kazoo at Jessica Mitford's funeral. Broadway and television actor Richard McKenzie shares the riotous story of a funeral procession led by a lost hearse. Bonnie Garvin writes about her parents' double suicide attempt (and yes, it's funny!). Joshua Braff recalls a death in an upstairs bedroom during his childhood, Roadrunner cartoons included. L.A. Law star and author Michael Tucker describes his last visit with his dying friend, Cleavon Little, and how they said goodbye. International bestselling novelist Jacquelyn Mitchard writes about her husband's untimely death, and how his three best friends ended up held in a psychiatric hospital after the wake. These stories, along with seventeen other memorable essays, constitute a book whose purpose is to remind readers that when dealing with illness, dying, and death, there is an important place for laugh-out-loud humor.

58. Lovely Bits Of Old England Selected Writings From The Telegraph (Large Print 16pt) - John Betjeman

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

John Betjeman began writing for the Telegraph in 1951 and continued to do so for a quarter of a century. During that time Britain underwent profound social and cultural changes. In architecture, grand Victorian edifices were pulled down to make way for gleaming brutalist monuments to the Future. In literature, a new generation of angry young men (and women) challenged convention head on. In music, pomp and circumstance gave way to the electric guitar. And in fashion, hemlines crept up. Amongst much of the population, however, such rapid change met with disquiet: a nagging sense that the New had displaced much that was wonderful in the Old. By turns eccentric, wistful and polemical, Betjeman's writing for the Telegraph gave voice to this unease. From contemporary reviews - often refreshingly caustic - of novelists such as Ian Fleming, Nancy Mitford and J.D. Salinger, through prescient warnings about the threat posed to the English skyline by office blocks, motorways and concrete lamp - standards, to elegiac paeans to Norman churches and, of course, the gothic majesty of St Pancras station, Lovely Bits of Old England collects the very best of Betjeman's contributions to the Telegraph for the first time. Taken together they offer a eulogy for what was lost and an impassioned defence of the past in the face of progress's relentless onward march.
