The Joy Luck Club by Wayne Wang( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 1,748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four mothers. Four daughters. Eight stories. The Joy Luck Club is four women in San Francisco who have played mah jong together on a weekly basis to for forty some years. One of them, Suyuan, has died, and her daughter June is preparing to go to China. Auntie Lindo with daughter Waverly, Auntie Ying Ying with daughter Lena, and Auntie An Mei with daughter Rose are at the going away party. Born in China, the Joy Luck Club members came to America as young adults; their daughters are 100% American. The old days are seldom spoken about, and some things about those times have never been said aloud, but the experiences left behind color the hopes and expectations these women have for their daughters. If daughters become their mothers--no matter how much both parties desire that it not happen--daughters also become different from their mothers--despite all attempts to perpetuate the status quo

Zodiac by David Fincher( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A serial killer in the San Francisco Bay Area taunts police with his letters and cryptic messages. Looks into the lives of the four men most effected by the killer: San Francisco PD Homicide, David Toschi and William Armstrong, the San Francisco Chronicle reporters Paul Avery and Robert Graysmith. Displays the psychological and emotional effects of the killings, as well as the endless procedural details of the investigation (handwriting experts, the "2500" suspects), the letters sent to the San Francisco Chronicle by Zodiac and the work of a 20+ year investigation that wears down and whittles away at any kind of normal life for Toshi and Graysmith. Both men are obsessed with Zodiac and both pay for this obsession with the hard years and loves lost and never regained

Dangerous minds by John N Smith( Visual )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in Italian and English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LouAnne Johnson, grazie al suo corposo e accreditato curriculum, ottiene un posto da insegnante in una scuola californiana. La sua classe, però, è quella dei "ragazzi speciali", allievi dai grossi problemi disciplinari a causa delle condizioni svantaggiate in cui vivono a livello sociale, responsabili già di due defezioni da parte delle precedenti insegnanti. Dopo il contraccolpo accusato il primo giorno, LouAnne decide di attirare la loro attenzione stupendoli: li incuriosisce spiegando loro le mosse basilari del karatè, subendo, per questo motivo, anche i rimbrotti del preside della scuola. Ma la Johnson non demorde e comincia a stimolare la scolaresca facendole leggere e commentare versi scritti da Bob Dylan nelle sue canzoni. L'insegnante, tuttavia, si accorge che il leader della classe, Emilio Ramirez, le mostra assoluta indifferenza quando non addirittura ostilità: l'obiettivo, se vuole accattivarsi le simpatie della classe e continuare nel suo lavoro, è quello di avere l'approvazione del ragazzo. La donna la ottiene recandosi in visita nelle case dello stesso Emilio, di Raul e di Gusmaro a parlare e in qualche modo rassicurare le famiglie dopo che tali allievi sono stati sospesi dalle lezioni a causa di una violenta rissa. Continuando con i suoi criteri didattici, la Johnson istituisce un premio per gli allievi che riusciranno a trovare le similitudini tra il testo di una canzone di Bob Dylan e una poesia del poeta gallese Dylan Thomas: i vincitori andranno a cena nel ristorante più esclusivo della città con lei. I vincitori risultano Raul, Callie e Durrell, ma solo il primo può gustare la cena con la Johnson: Durrell e Callie - che aspetta un bambino - devono infatti lavorare la sera per potersi mantenere. Ma i problemi per la Johnson sono costanti: Callie è costretta da un tacito regolamento della scuola - al quale la professoressa si oppone, spuntandola - a trasferirsi in un altro istituto per ragazze madri, mentre Durrell e il fratello Lyonel hanno abbandonato la scuola per volontà della madre che reputa stupidaggini gli insegnamenti sulla poesia della Johnson. Emilio, intanto, è minacciato di morte dall'ex fidanzato della sua attuale ragazza, appena uscito di prigione dopo aver scontato una pena per uso di crack: LouAnne lo convince a denunciare il rivale alla polizia parlandone con il preside, ma questi, il giorno seguente, si rifiuta di ricevere il ragazzo perché è entrato nell'ufficio senza bussare. Emilio viene ucciso e la Johnson, scorata, ha la netta sensazione di aver fallito il suo obiettivo. Decide allora di lasciare la scuola, ma gli allievi, utilizzando i suoi stessi insegnamenti, la convincono a rimanere

The unusual aspect of his life is that he is ages backwards, being born an old man. He is diagnosed with several aged diseases at birth and thus given little chance of survival. He does survive and gets younger with time. Abandoned by Thomas Button, his biological father, after Benjamin's biological mother died in childbirth. Benjamin was raised by Queenie, a black woman and caregiver at a seniors home. Daisy's grandmother was a resident, which is where she first met Benjamin.
