Review
*Praise for little Fry

“An epic, sharp coming-of-age story from the female offspring of Steve Jobs. It’s rare to search out a memoir from a celebrity’s kid within which the writing is equal to―or exceeds―the parent’s name, however that’s the case with Brennan-Jobs’ debut. in a very lesser writer’s hands, the narrative might have devolved into literary revenge. Instead, Brennan-Jobs offers a spectacularly stunning study of parenting that with great care happens to incorporate the co-founder of Apple… AN fine rendered story of family, love, and identity.”―Kirkus Reviews (starred review).

“Brennan-Jobs’s narrative is coloured with awe, yearning, and disappointment… transportation the reader into the center of the kid World Health Organization loved Jobs’s genius, desired his love, and feared his unpredictability.”―Publisher’s Weekly (starred review).

“Brennan-Jobs skilfully relays her past while not judgement… staying faithful her younger self. it’s a testament to her fine writing and print media approach that her memoir ne’er turns hokey or newsy. instead of a star history, this can be Brennan-Jobs’s authentic story of growing up in 2 terribly completely different environments, neither of that felt quite like home.”―Booklist (starred review).

“Here may be a literary coming-of-age memoir of the best order, the story of a baby making an attempt to search out her place between 2 radically completely different oldsters, identities, and worlds. Compassionate, wise, and stuffed with finely-wrought detail, little Fry may be a surprise of a book, and Lisa Brennan-Jobs may be a surprise of a author.”―Jamie Quatro.

“As perspicacious, amusing, honest, tough-minded and unhappy as any memoir I’ve browse in years. The prose sparkles, the vision behind it’s remorsefully compassionate and wise. No alternative book or film has captured Steve Jobs as clearly as this one has. The love between father and female offspring, discomfited and baffled because it usually is, comes through superbly.”―Phillip Lopate.

“A attractive, compelling work of art and a stunning coming-of-age story. this can be a beautiful, sweet intimate portrait, a story told through the eyes of a female offspring World Health Organizationse father struggled along with his own origins―and who virtually became the daddy she hoped he would be.” ―Susan author.”

• Description : A NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, and TIME TOP 10 BOOK OF THE YEAR The definitive, dramatic biography of the most important African American of the nineteenth century: Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave who became the greatest orator of his day and one of the leading abolitionists and writers of the era. As a young man Frederick Douglass (1818–1895) escaped from slavery in Baltimore, Maryland. He was fortunate to have been taught to read by his slave owner mistress, and he would go on to become one of the major literary figures of his time. He wrote three versions of his autobiography over the course of his lifetime and published his own newspaper. His very existence gave the lie to slave owners: with dignity and great intelligence he bore witness to the brutality of slavery. Initially mentored by William Lloyd Garrison, Douglass spoke widely, often to large crowds, using his own story to condemn slavery. He broke with Garrison to become a political abolitionist, a Republican, and eventually a Lincoln supporter. By the Civil War and during Reconstruction, Douglass became the most famed and widely travelled orator in the nation. He denounced the premature end of Reconstruction and the emerging Jim Crow era. In his unique and eloquent voice, written and spoken, Douglass was a fierce critic of the United States as well as a radical patriot. He sometimes argued politically with younger African Americans, but he never forsook either the Republican party or the cause of black civil and political rights. In this remarkable biography, David Blight has drawn on new information held in a private collection that few other historian have consulted, as well as recently discovered issues of Douglass’s newspapers. Blight tells the fascinating story of Douglass’s two marriages and his complex extended family. Douglass was not only an astonishing man of words, but a thinker steeped in Biblical story and theology. There has not been a major biography of Douglass in a quarter century. David Blight’s Frederick Douglass affords this important American the distinguished biography he deserves. [...] by Publisher : 'Simon & Schuster'
