Inhaltsangabe: "Hell, Where Is It""by Pauline S. Manos. Subtitles: "I Stood Solidly Upon My Dignity" and "A Woman, Raises Her Spirit In Everyday Life" Without fear, with a courageous strong soul and conscience, climbing her uphill brusque road until she begins to wonder, 'so then:' "Hell, Where is It?"
The author tells us: "Reader, walk with me to see how agonizing and heartbreaking my experiences were on the roads I passed. My father was responsible for tremendous mistakes he made which led to horrible occurrences that will shock you. Reading every page of this book you will begin to ask yourself, a simple question: If life is so difficult here on this planet, then, Hell, Where Is It? I was born in Brooklyn New York. That day, the sun chose to hide behind black clouds. While orphaned of our Mother, I made my first childhood steps in a small village in Greece. Our Father had no guilty feelings when he made the decision to leave us, me and my two years older only brother, there in this village. We, the two little Americans on foreign soil left with unknown people who had no goodness and did not want to give anything human to us."
Highly praised in New York and Greece, Greek-American daily, weekly newspapers, on radio programs, at book fairs, and various distinguished book presentations. A well loved and frequently reread work of the entire New York-Greek and Greek-American journalist's community with popularity spreading quickly in Athens and the rest of the world to rave reviews with requests for translations in many languages and constant suggestions for cinematic consideration! This book is a display of miraculous survival under most difficult of circumstances written with eloquence and finesse, touching greatly on women's issues, parenting, sensitivity, history, wars, economics, injustice, justice, law, children, psychology, culture, societies in Greece and New York. A literary masterpiece that makes readers hold on until the last page
Hell, Where is it? A Woman, Raises Her Spirit In Everyday Life. I stood solidly upon my dignity is the story of a life-achievement: a young girl's struggles to survive abandonment, poverty and abuse in early 20th-century Greece, and to sustain her family and her spirit in modern America. It is a personal record of a multi-generational Greek-American family, of the old and new societies that root and uproot them: their cooperations and conflicts, adventures and problems in reaching for success describe American dreams and nightmares. This is a life lived with resourcefulness, compassion and courage; a person who rises stronger from the insults heaped upon her because she happens to be vulnerable, a child, and then a woman. She is a reluctant woman alone, shrewdly observant, of strong commitments, proud standards, and poetry, who refuses to stop living her best. As history, this book explores two interpenetrating worlds in dramatic change. As literature, it paints a human face on every individual, from a tyrannous fake Grandmother and the women who fight or follow her, to the men this writer encounters---her caring brother and uncles, lovers strong and cunning, her rich career's helpful and exploitative businessmen. Writer Pauline S. Manos (Manolakos) never stops uncovering people's connections, and with them, intimate truth: the complicated truth of the self, of good and bad in all families, of the power of a small kindness to build bonds and redeem astonishing cruelty. Every page shines with its author's charming frankness, a pleasure to read aloud; and each person's voice rings true within the clean, lean style of a very good listener. For all its painful reversals of fortune, Hell, Where Is it? A Woman, Raises Her Spirit In Everyday Life. I stood solidly upon my dignity lifts the spirit again and again: it is true-to-life, surprising, moving, and as educational for men as it is for women.
