LIFE IN THE HARSH LANE

The Nine Lives, Mishaps, and Adventures of a No-Body

Author: Thomas Appleby

Page: 244

This book is intended to make any reader, firstly laugh, then in no particular order, flinch, be jealous, feel sick, feel sorry, angry and disgusted or just plain sad. This is the original story of nobodies, but the type of people a lot of people can relate to, to some degree. Events are sometimes in random order, due to the author's sometimes random memory. The main dilemma in writing a 'warts n' all' book, is, whilst it's fine to do so if you are famous, on the other hand, when even your wife can barely remember who you are, it's a bit different! Basically, who gives a shit? But going with the old cliché 'Everyone has a book in them' here's mine. It is a book of many contrasts, wild and excessive and funny to some, but at some points it is balanced out with the tales of the complete opposite, about family, heartbreak and loss, and has some pretty morbid moments I must admit, but this is generally about the knowledge that you gain in this life, I can't say I have learned completely yet, who does? But I'm getting there, and if I don't, who really gives a toss anyway? I didn't invent Penicillin, or The Wheel, or even American Idol, I'm just a regular guy in some respects. There is a great quote out there which that wholeheartedly sums up my philosophy towards life, 'Live as if you'll die tomorrow. Dream as if you'll live forever.' There is also a historical element to some of the recollections, relating to people and places, just to try to make me look a bit more clever if possible, well I need something! As for writing about real life, as a musician formerly, I now understand when a band says you have your have the first part of your life to write your first album, it's the same with writing about real life, all your own experiences are exhausted after that. As anyone who knows me, I'm one of the worst liars in the universe, imagination I'm crap at, I do prefer real life. So I won't be forging a career in Fiction anytime soon. Anyway, it's all academic, I'll probably get banned from writing books ever again, if anybody ever reads this. Names have been changed to protect the slightly guilty, the guilty, and the really guilty, I hope I've not dropped anyone in this too much. There are certain stories which I cannot and will not write about, too sensitive for some people I know, and are frankly a bit too harsh for this book, and that's saying something.

A Social Perspective on the Function of Writing

This book articulates an ethics for reading that places primary responsibility for the social influences of a text on the response of its readers. We write and read as participants in a process through which we negotiate with others whom we must live or work with and with whom we share values, beliefs, and actions. Clark draws on current literary theory, rhetoric, philosophy, communication theory, and composition studies as he builds on this argument. Because reading and writing are public actions that address and direct matters of shared belief, values, and action, reading and writing should be taught as public discourse. We should teach not writing or reading so much as the larger practice of public discourse—a discourse that sustains the many important communities of which students are and will be active members.

When your childhood is stolen from you, what hope is there for your future? For three young women, life is unimaginably horrible. Two were taken from their families as children, and the third is held in virtual slavery in plain sight.

The psychological ones run deep and fester in the shadows of shame and hopelessness. As a survival tactic, they've buried the painful memories of their childhoods. From time to time, though, fleeting images of who they once were slip through the facade. Now they must find a way to do the impossible, the unthinkable: escape. But hidden beneath their desperation for a life free of their captors is another demon. They must pretend to be normal so they can live in everyday society. But first, they must find a way to escape. If they are to survive, they must depend on the strength of new people who have entered their lives. Can the women ever trust again? And how much are they willing to risk in order to leave the nightmare behind? Are they in danger of exchanging one life of horror for another?"

Believing that the truth will set him free, Jack sets out to uncover dark secrets from his past that have made his life a wasteland. With nothing to salvage but his name, Jack decides to do the next right thing, regardless of what that might be, leaving the outcome in God’s hands. A story like this is one that continues throughout a lifetime. The glimpses shared in these pages will inspire you to be honest about your own demons and provide hope for a fulfilled and joyful life beyond the shackles of addiction.
