READING: 'This Was A Man' is the life story of Isaac Ochberg (1878-1937) and was first published in 1974 by his daughter Bertha I Epstein. This is a 2014 reprint of the book slightly edited with an addendum added. The rescue of 200 children, orphans of the Ukrainian pogroms (later know as Ochberg Orphans), is, without a doubt, one of the most glorious chapters in the life of Isaac Ochberg. In 1921 Isaac (know as Daddy Ochberg to the children) brought these children out to South Africa, saving them from the horrors of 'The Pale of Settlement', and half were settled in Oranjia, The Cape Jewish Orphanage and half in Arcadia, The South African Jewish Orphanage in Johannesburg. The book not only tells us of the rescue of these children, but also about Isaac's extraordinary business ventures and the many great works done by him, a once in a lifetime successful businessman and philanthropist. "He never refused to support a worthy cause; on the contrary, his creed was that since he had been enabled to achieve success in his own enterprises, he had a moral duty to help those less fortunate." Amongst his many bequests are two that stand out: The largest donation to the Jewish National Fund used to acquire a massive tract of land on which now stand two kibbutzim, Dalia and Galed, and a donation to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The book also follows up on the Ochberg Orphans: In 1971 a Golden Jubilee Reunion of these children took place in Cape Town and in 2011 some 250 of the estimated 4,000 descendants of the children gathered in Israel at a two day ceremony at Kibbutz Dalia and Galed. This culminated in the dedication of the Ochberg Memorial Site overlooking an area that had been originally named the 'Isaac Ochberg Tract.' This memorial site has now become a regular tourist attraction in Israel and a documentary, Ochberg's Orphans, and book, 'The Ochberg Orphans and the horrors from whence they came', now tell us more about Isaac Ochberg and The Ochberg Orphans. Bennie Penzik, son of two Ochberg Orphans, formed the Isaac Ochberg Heritage Committee in Israel that raises awareness of Isaac Ochberg and his great deeds. Bennie Penzik and David Solly Sandler (the compiler of the Ochberg Orphan book) jointly wrote the addendum of this book which tells us about resent happenings to keep alive the name of Isaac Ochberg.

READING: Percy Walter's life could never be described as boring. Whether gambling away the safety of his backside or wrangling killer chickens, he was never one to sit back and let life pass him by. Percival Walters was a Man, by Kelly Becht, is pure Americana. Whether you are a man or a woman, Percy is guaranteed to give you at least a chuckle, and maybe even an outright chortle. While Percy is definitely a work of fiction, many of the events and anecdotes depicted are based upon life experiences of the author and those around him. You will find Percival Walters was a Man to be a wholesome, refreshing, and thoroughly enjoyable respite from the turmoil and cynicism of the world around us. Percival Walters was a Man is truly a great read. The concept of 'chicken feet love' alone is worth the price of the book. —William Miolen, Senior Technical Solutions Manager, Whirlpool Corporation

READING: Edward Churt is a successful painter. His wife Carol has a 'vivid personality composed of a minimum of intellect and a maximum of sex'. Increasingly aware of her infidelity, Edward defends himself with a veneer of sophisticated insouciance. But his best friend and army comrade is determined to avenge him... This Was A Man explores some of Coward's lifelong themes of social mores, jealousy and the futility of a life with no moral compass. Can good manners emasculate us? What happens when we repress our inner caveman? Is it more courageous to look away or to face our demons and fight? What, indeed, does it mean to be a man? Banned by the Lord Chamberlain in 1926 for its facetious and irreverent treatment of adultery, This Was A Man was not performed professionally in the UK until its debut at the Finborough Theatre in 2014. This is the first time the play has been published as a single volume in the UK.

READING: This is the extraordinary first-person account of a young woman's coming of age in Somalia and her struggles against the obligations and strictures of family and society. By the time she is nine, Aman has undergone a ritual circumcision ceremony; at eleven, her innocent romance with a white boy leads to a murder; at thirteen she is given away in an arranged marriage to a stranger. Aman eventually runs away to Mogadishu, where her beauty and rebellious spirit leads her to the decadent demimonde of white colonialists. Hers is a world in which women are both chattel and freewheeling entrepreneurs, subject to the caprices of male relatives, yet keenly aware of the loopholes that lead to freedom. Aman is an astonishing history, opening a window onto traditional Somali life and the universal quest for female self-awareness. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: "The Man in the Mall" is a book that is designed to supply solutions to an age-old problem that continues to go unresolved. The problem being that there are a lot of women who complain about the fact their man doesn't like to shop at the mall with them or anyone else for that matter! Most of the women that I spoke to came across as very annoyed and frustrated when it came to getting their man in the mall. This anger was the result of year after year of trying to get him to go shopping with her, resulting in her going to the mall by herself. All that any of these women wanted to do was to share this- outside- the- home activity with the man in their life. What a concept!This book attempts to show the highlights and lowlights of the dilemma that the shopping mall has been over the years. What few highlights that the mall has had on relationships between men and women are far out weighed by the negative ones. The history behind this battle goes back to the 60''s when the mall experience started expanding across the country. There are many things that the malls did which resulted in turning men off from shopping. It's this cause and affect that we will be delving into throughout "The Man in the Mall."There are many parts to this amalgam that we commonly refer to as the shopping mall syndrome and history would indicate that it requires a multitude of solutions to remedy. This book will reveal the solutions to such questions about going to the mall such as: When do we go? Should just the two of us go together? What size mall, and what type of store? How long should I keep him there? How do I plan this trip to the mall? Does it matter if the mall is close or far away? What department should I take him to when we get there? Is it all right to include the mall with something else? What do I do if I need a babysitter? Do I need to leave him alone, or do I stay with him? Who should drive the first time?
