Ana Simo HEARTLAND 1 Blue Ribbon It all began in the summer of 1976 when I won the Blue Ribbon at Elmira Countys Junior Progymnasmata with Benbassa, an inadvertently anti-Semitic fable. In the first of a long series of obfuscations about my person, I pretended to be fifteen to qualify for the contest, when I was just eleven years, seven months, three days and seventeen hours old. At the time I composed Benbassa, I didnt know any Jews, unless one counted the sweltering Rafael Cohen, which no one ...

POEMS BY W.B. YEATS PREFACE During the last year I have spent much time altering The Countess Cathleen and The Land of Hearts Desire that they might be a part of the repertory of the Abbey Theatre. I had written them before I had any practical experience, and I knew from the performance of the one in Dublin in 1899 and of the other in London in 1894 that they were full of defects. But in their new shapeand each play has been twice played during the winterthey have given me some pleasure, and ...

Then she leant over and reached under the bed for her diary and pen. Brushing her hair back from her eyes, she wrote: LISTEN UP, WORLD, TODAY IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY You got ...

Honor Guards by RADCLY f FE INTRODUCTION I wrote Above All, Honor as an actionromance novel, and as the series has evolved, it has developed into the story of relationships in a world that is dangerous and often deadly. Because much of the story is set in Manhattan and one of the main characters is the daughter of the president of the United States, it seemed integral to the continuing saga to deal with the events of September 11, 2001. I agonized over the appropriate time to write about this ...
