David is a 12-year-old boy who escapes from a Communist concentration camp. He has little more with him than a compass, a sealed letter, a loaf of bread, and instructions to carry the letter to Copenhagen, Denmark. David is thrust into a world free of Communism for the first time in his young life as he travels across Europe. For David, this is a spiritual voyage of discovery, where he slowly loses his instinctual mistrust of humanity and begins to smile, share, trust and ultimately, love. Ultimately addresses the cruelties, politics, and suffering of warfare while celebrating the resilience of youth and the unbreakable spirit of a child.
Strange things happen : a life with the Police, polo, and pygmies by Stewart Copeland ( Book )
19 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 584 libraries worldwide
When Stewart Copeland gets dressed, he has an identity crisis. Should he put on "leather pants, hostile shirts, and pointy shoes"? Or wear something more appropriate to the "tax-paying, property-owning, investment-holding lotus eater" his success has allowed him to become? This dilemma is at the heart of Copeland's memoir. The world knows him as the drummer for The Police, one of the most successful bands in rock history. But they may not know about his childhood in the Middle East as the son of a CIA agent. Or be aware of his film-making adventures with the Pygmies in the deepest reaches of the Congo, and his passion for polo. Here we move from Copeland's remarkable childhood to the formation of The Police, their rise to stardom, and the settled-down life that followed. It's a book of amazing anecdotes, all completely true, which take us backstage in a life that is fully lived.--From publisher description.
