One More for the Road recounts the life and career of Croatian filmmaker Rajko Grlić in the form of a lexicon of film terms, tying cinematic terms to anecdotes spanning Grlić’s life, from his post-Nazi-era childhood in Yugoslavia to his college years during the 1968 invasion of Prague, the Yugoslav dissolution wars, and his subsequent exile in the United States. With a scholarly introduction by Aida Vidan, these personal stories combine to provide insight into the socialist film industries, contextualizing south Slavic film while also highlighting its contacts with Western filmmakers and the film industry.

Trauma be it; accident, abuse or war has happened in all our lives. This story will give you a deeper understanding of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and yes PTSD can be catchy. A candid and true story. Facing The Wall: A Mission - a never-ending journey, is recipient of The Kirkus Star from ~ Kirkus Reviews A star is assigned to books of remarkable merit, as determined by the impartial editors of Kirkus Reviews ~ Best of Indie Books 2010 www.ptsd.va.gov Book Review A Vietnam vet's wife fights a long battle with her husband's post-traumatic stress disorder in this poignant memoir. When her husband Jim, a 27-year-old Marine, returned intact from Vietnam in 1969, the author hoped that the couple could resume their lives as before. But although Jim bore no physical scars from his year in combat, his psychic wounds ran deep. Indeed, he hardly seemed to have left the war. He was plagued by nightmares and flashbacks in which he would call for medevac choppers or imagine himself surrounded by enemies. He veered between hypervigilance and catatonic staring, insisted on sitting with his back to a wall so he could survey his perimeter, and was spooked by both loud noises and silence; only the soothing sound of crickets could convince him there was nothing lying in wait. Over the decades, Jim's illness took a heavy toll; he lost jobs and eventually became unemployable, withdrew emotionally from his wife and sons and endured periodic hospitalizations. (In the author's telling, the Veterans Administration long ignored the Vietnam-era PTSD epidemic and was more a hindrance than a help in coping with Jim's problems.) In her clear-eyed memoir, King draws a subtle, layered portrait of her lost soul of a husband. Sometimes he seems unreachable, sunk in memories of Vietnam and of his buddies who didn't make it back (or in guilt over his own survival) and unable to carry out the simplest project; but he also devotedly serves as a volunteer fireman and pulls himself together to help his wife through crises and grief. It is as much the author's story as Jim's, as she struggles to hold the family together and fathom the stranger her husband has become, and to reclaim her own personality from the ravages of "secondary" PTSD. With America's latest conflicts still generating victims, this is a very timely book: an anguished, unsparing, but ultimately hopeful view of the heartbreak of PTSD. An absorbing firsthand saga of war's invisible casualties. -Kirkus Discoveries

Christmas wishes do come true. Some just take a little longer than others. For most people, Christmas is a time to celebrate with family and friends, but not for Chloe Lewis. She plans to spend it as she does every other day— alone, escaping the harsh realities of the world through her art. Painting mountainous landscapes reminds her of the one brief time in her life when she didn’t feel so alone. The hallmark grizzly bear she incorporates into each and every painting has the same golden-brown eyes as the only friend she’d ever known. Sam Brown was only eight years old when Chloe moved to the small mountain town he and his family called home, but his bear knew right away that she was the one for him. In a cruel twist of fate, Chloe was taken away, but he’s never forgotten her – or what she is to him. When Sam’s cousin comes home for the holidays and shows him a painting he’d seen of a very familiar looking bear and signed simply “Chloe”, it might just be the break he’s been hoping for. A winter storm is coming but nothing is going to stop Sam from finding her and bringing her home. After all, Christmas is the time for miracles…
