A Glimpse of the Dragon - Beyond the Great Wall By Janis Letts
eBook (PDF): $5.00
(5 Ratings)
When Jan made the hasty decision to trade her career as a Tour Guide in an underground sapphire mine in Central Queensland, Australia, for a year teaching English in Inner Mongolia, China, she had no... More > idea what was in store. At her destination: her elder son, his Chinese wife, a first grandson (whom she'd never met), and a host of Chinese in-laws who spoke no English. Her younger son was a reluctant travelling companion. Culture-shocked to her core, she describes the challenges, humorous and tragic, of meeting new family and teaching in a foreign land where characters are diverse and events bizarre: readers are led through schoolrooms, market-places and smoky mah-jong parlours.

The Taint By Cheryl Jorgensen
eBook (ePub): $2.50
At age 17, Ray “Poss” Ide was convicted for a horrifying crime he claims he did not commit: the rape of a 14-year-old girl.  The Taint portrays Ide’s early life, including... More > years in Westbrook Boys’ Reformatory and Boggo Road, and time served in NSW gaols. After prison,  Poss was recruited by Parramatta Eels football team. On the point of becoming celebrated for his sporting prowess, his rape conviction became known. Humiliated, he left the team. In Queensland via Grafton, NSW (where he met and married the Jacaranda Queen) he continued his sporting career, only never again in the Big League.  A cautionary tale for young men, The Taint depicts social change: the sexual revolution of the 1960s  and violence between police and trade unionists in the streets of Brisbane. It tells  what really went on behind closed doors in institutions where vulnerable children were preyed upon, and gaols where men were expected to become beasts. The taint of rape affected the rest of Poss Ide’s life.< Less
