Her parents sent her into Germany to escape the wrath of the Russians wh My mother was a peasant German girl living in Silesia when the war broke out. Her parents sent her into Germany to escape the wrath of the Russians where she was put into the military Because my father was career army, I lived in Germany for 14 years. I find much to admire about the German character; a practical nature, attention to detail, and a love for order and discipline. But their discomfort with emotions combined with an innate pride bordering on stubborn arrogance makes it difficult to for them to consider the price they pay for their rigidity, to the point where it is practically impossible for them to say "I was wrong," even in the face of overwhelming evidence.
This, combined with hard economic times and a long European history of settling national problems with bloodshed, made the rise of the 3rd Reich possible, in my opinion.

Lorrie Moore's "The Jewish Hunter" is a dark romance that's by turns cynical and guileless. Mack Friedman catches the smoking feel of first love in his "Setting the Lawn on Fire," and Jesse Lee Kercheval's "Brazil" is a raucous, ultimately mournful road trip. For Jane Hamilton, Wisconsin is a gorgeous but bittersweet homecoming, and for Kelly Cherry, in her achingly elegiac "As It Is in Heaven," it's the hopeful new world, juxtaposed with a bleak, tweedy England.
Dwight Allen's "The Green Suit" evokes the young man edging toward adulthood, in a New York that's as flamboyant as an opera, and Tenaya Darlington, in her "A Patch of Skin," constructs a pure horror story, because the horror of loneliness is something we all know. Together Barnstorm's eclectic voices suggest that every coast now, even the Great Lakes' shores, are at the very center of our best, and truest, national literature. Not for sale in the United Kingdom. A stunningly clever and thought-provoking collection of stories that stretches the boundaries of the form, eliciting a dream world of fictive pieces that are paens to the imagination.
Millhauser serves them and his readers well with a cunning grace and equally marvelous charade. Set in contemporary times, Baron Wenckheim's Homecoming tells the story of a Prince Myshkin-like figure, Baron BZla Wenckheim, who returns at the end of his life to his provincial Hungarian hometown. Having escaped from his many casino debts in Buenos Aires, where he was living in exile, he longs to be reunited with his high-school sweetheart Marika.
Mike Jack Stoumbos, a young Seattle playwright, brings you his debut narrative in the form of this fanciful folk tale which demonstrates the triumph of love against even the most daunting whimsy. With its cast of charming characters, historical anecdotes, literary allusions, and a fresh farce with each new day, The Baron Would Be Proud is certainly a story for storytellers everywhere. No one can figure out how to get into or out of the town, save for a veteran traveling merchant who has assumed the sacred duty of vacationing in this town once every year around Christmas.
Now, as fate would have it, another man, also traveling around the world, gets lost in a storm and stumbles blindly into the town. As both the novice and the veteran and English gentlemen and well-to-do traveling merchants, their being snowed in for the winter creates a 'this town ain't big enough for the two of us' dynamic. However, the narrator will tell you that's not what the story is about; rather it is about the young man named Julian who lives in the town and who has grown quite smitten with the daughter of the mayor.
In order to gain her attention, Julian boldly offers to put up the stranger and his servants for the winter weeks, and this stranger--a cheeky fellow who goes by the name of the Baron Pan Bordolo--decides that the only apt way to repay the lad is to help him win his lady. Cosimo, a young Italian nobelman of the 18th century, rebels against parental authority by climbing into the trees and remaining there for the rest of his life.
He adapts efficiently to an arboreal existence - hunts, sows, crops, plays games with earth-bound friends, fights forest fires, solves engineering problems, and even manages to have love affairs. From his perch in the trees, Cosimo sees the age of Voltaire pass by and a new century dawn. Twenty-year old Paul Henry has just been released from the Army. Physically healed from the wounds he suffered in Viet Nam, he still suffers from deep psychic wounds and a radically changed outlook, his "enlistment bonus.
Paul's father, John Allison Henry, supposedly committed suicide on the day his son was born. Paul's impulsive decision to find out more about his father sets him on a journey among strangers in a strange land, where he will find happiness and horror, love and hate, the power of determined effort, and the force of capricious fate. The author does an excellent job of keeping you enthralled, making you hope all will be well, yet causing you to fear that all will come crashing down.
Like a skilled poker player, this story keeps its cards close to its vest until all the bets are in, the hand is called, and boom! After the emotions stirred up by the showdown abate, one thought is left - wow! Deal another hand! Love sometimes means having to solve your ex-girlfriend's murder. Burleigh Drummond, a fixer, ignores a voice-mail plea for help from his ex-girlfriend Coco Robichaux.

Still, Drummond misses Coco and regrets not answering her call. The next morning he is rousted from bed by two extremely unpleasant homicide detectives with the news that Coco has been raped and bludgeoned to death.
The detectives also share they have been instructed to do nothing about the case, but should he provide them with evidence As Drummond investigates he discovers Coco lived a clandestine existence in the city's netherworld and had been drafted as an unwitting pawn in a plot to disrupt the upcoming mayoral election. As often happens with pawns, she was sacrificed. When threats cloaked as friendly warnings escalate to an old-fashioned beating, Drummond enlists a reputed mercenary, a black-separatist reporter, and a computer hacker to assist in his investigation and, eventually, revenge.
As Drummond negotiates through the maze of deception and he finds himself at odds with his blueblood clients, the police chief, the mayor, and a gay crime syndicate. The story follows their lives as they intersect and fall in love with one another and share a common bond that they were painted by the great Caravaggio.
