From a young age, Michael was both fascinated by and afraid of his grandfather. Grandpa’s ship was torpedoed during the Second World War, leaving him with terrible burns. Every time he came to stay, Michael was warned by his mother that he must not stare, he must not make too much noise, he must not ask Grandpa any questions about his past. As he grows older, Michael stays with his grandfather during the summer holidays and learns the story behind Grandpa’s injuries, finally getting to know the real man behind the solemn figure from his childhood. Michael can see beyond the burns, and this gives him the power to begin healing scars that have divided his family for so long.

In 1991 René Nielsen thought that he had life under control. His career as a major league handball player looked more promising than ever, his job was on track, and he had moved in with the woman of his dreams. But one night in April René’s life was suddenly and savagely pulled apart. That night he lost both his legs in an inexplicable train accident. With rare perseverance he fought his way out of bitterness. In spite of the accident he chased his dream and became one of Denmark’s premier athletes. But according to René Nielsen life’s great battles are not fought in the field, but inside yourself. Some of René’s strength can paradoxically be ascribed to a tough childhood, but also to a strong marriage with his high school sweetheart Helle, who is unfailing in her love for René – with and without his legs. Half a Man – a Whole Person is an immensely compelling, life-affirming, and very personal story about how a man and a human being may find himself and move on with life even if the unthinkable happens.

Paul Monette’s National Book Award–winning memoir hailed as a classic coming-out story Paul Monette grew up all-American, Catholic, overachieving . . . and closeted. As a child of the 1950s, a time when a kid suspected of being a “homo” would routinely be beaten up, Monette kept his secret throughout his adolescence. He wrestled with his sexuality for the first thirty years of his life, priding himself on his ability to “pass” for straight. The story of his journey to adulthood and to self-acceptance with grace and honesty, this intimate portrait of a young man’s struggle with his own desires is witty, humorous, and deeply felt. Before his death of complications from AIDS in 1995, Monette was an outspoken activist crusading for gay rights. Becoming a Man shows his courageous path to stand up for his own right to love and be loved. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Paul Monette including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the Paul Monette papers of the UCLA Library Special Collections.
