After a victorious basketball game, best friends Andy, Robbie, Tyrone, and B.J. decide to celebrate. They are all drinking except for B.J.. However, Andy was driving and drove into a wall, causing the car to catch on fire. They all got out without any major injuries, except for Robbie. Robbie was stuck in the windshield, and the three escaped boys listened to their best friend die, not being able to help him. Several months later, Tyrone and B.J. learned to live with the accident and moved on. On the other hand, Andy seemed to be unable to move past Robbie's death. Is he strong enough to be able to get through this tragedy? Tears of a Tiger is an quick and easy read, but I loved it. I could not bring myself to put it down. I was never simply reading words on a page. It was as if I was a character in the book. I was not happy, but ecstatic. Not mad, but furious. I would recommend this to anyone who likes realistic, emotional books.
This is a Memoir written about a girl named Miriam, and her life growing up in the ghetto of alexandra during the Apartheid in South Africa. I found this book interesting. If you have any doubts about the importance of education you should read this book. Education is freedom.
Liebersohn reviews five sociologists (Törries, Weber, Troeltsch, Simmel, Lukacs) centered around one theme: their postreligious impulse for ecclessial community.
One of my top five favorite writers. I think he's underappreciated, probably because he wrote pulp crime novels.
