Stolen lives : [twenty years in a desert jail] by Malika Oufkir( Recording )

Malika Oufkir was the eldest daughter of General Oufkir, the King of Morocco's closest aide in 1960s Morocco. As upper-class citizens, family members were treated to opulent luxuries. The King raised Malika as his own daughter and as a companion to his children, only sending her to live with her blood family again when she reached her teenage years. But when the King died and his son took the throne, Malika's father, the General, staged an ill-fated coup and was subsequently assassinated. Then her foster-brother "disappeared" the innocent Oufkir family, including Malika's mother and siblings, to progressively-worse conditions in desert penal colonies. This is the story of their pain, isolation, deprivation, and ultimate daring escape from lives as political prisoners
Memory's last breath : field notes on my dementia by Gerda Saunders( Recording )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the tradition of Brain on Fire and When Breath Becomes Air, Gerda Saunders' Memory's Last Breath is an unsparing, beautifully written memoir--a true-life Still Alice that captures Saunders' experience as a fiercely intellectual person living with the knowledge that her brain is betraying her. Saunders' book is uncharted territory in the writing on dementia, a diagnosis one in nine Americans will receive.Based on the "field notes" she keeps in her journal, Memory's Last Breath is Saunders' astonishing window into a life distorted by dementia. She writes about shopping trips cut short by unintentional shoplifting, car journeys derailed when she loses her bearings, and the embarrassment of forgetting what she has just said to a room of colleagues. Coping with the complications of losing short-term memory, Saunders nonetheless embarks on a personal investigation of the brain and its mysteries, examining science and literature, and immersing herself in vivid memories of her childhood in South Africa. Written in a distinctive voice without a trace of self-pity, Memory's Last Breath is a remarkable, aphorism-free contribution to the literature of dementia--and an eye-opening personal memoir that will grip all adventurous readers

One night will never be enough ...Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop.

Then she finds the note he left on his napkin ... signed M. All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him-or herself. M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed-and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses becomes her obsession-an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair
