Call Me Brooklyn from the Author: Eduardo Lago. Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, Call Me Brooklyn follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. A hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction, Call Me Brooklyn meanders through a series of settings: from Manhattan to haunts of writers and artists to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman's past. Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, Call Me Brooklyn follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Moving from the secret tunnels that shelter the forgotten residents of Manhattan to the studio where Mark Rothko put an end to his life, from the jazz clubs frequented by Thomas Pynchon to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman’s past, Call Me Brooklyn draws upon a rich tradition that includes Nabokov’s Pale Fire, Bellow’s Humbolt’s Gift, and the novels of Felipe Alfau—a hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction.

English Learner 500 Short Stories For Beginner Intermediate Vol 2 from the Author: Mike Carlson. Thank you, all of you who have bought Volume 1 for only 99 cents. All 1,000 stories in Volumes 1 and 2 are also available—for free—at eslyes. This website has over 1,600 original stories, plus exercises and audio, for ESL and other English learners. The stories in Volume 2 are similar to those in Volume 1. They’re stories about people and events that you can relate to or that you know about via media, your own personal experiences, or the experiences of your family and friends. These stories are for adults. Despite the title, the stories are not just for English learners. They are also for any native speaker who enjoys reading interesting, super-short stories (150 words each—or less than a minute to read). Even though most of the stories are fiction, many are based on actual incidents, some of them being—my own. The stories are “all over the place” (see the index). Some stories might make you nod your head; some, shake your head; some, scratch your head. Some might make you smile, frown, ponder, or start a conversation—with yourself, or others. The stories range from fanciful to topical, from amusing to amazing, from sugar to spice. Many take place in New York City. In Volume 2, you’ll find the answers to: We need a statue of what in NYC? The horse was okay until it did what? Why was she even with him, as ugly as he was? Why did she wish her arms were 10 feet long? What shiny piece of metal do NYers fear most? Put a bar of soap where to cure your leg cramps? What was so unusual about his 10 toes? What’s the proper way to open those pesky, supermarket produce bags? What “modern technology” will keep you cool? Why was the old lady a real NYer? Really now—why was the man running so many marathons? What human force is more powerful than gravity? To give you a better idea of what’s in Volume 2: 576. A Kiss Is Just a Kiss Lonny and Linda were in the second grade. One morning, Lonny walked Linda to her classroom. Linda asked, “Will you kiss my hand like they do in the movies?” Lonny said, “Okay, I guess.” She held out her hand. He kissed it. Linda’s teacher, Miss Jones, saw the kiss. She said, “Come with me, young man.” She took Lonny to the principal’s office. After listening to Miss Jones, the principal called Lonny’s mom. The principal said, “We have to suspend Lonny because of sexual harassment.” Lonny’s mom picked him up. On the way home, she told Lonny that hand kissing was sexual harassment. At home, Lonny’s younger brother Billy asked, “Why aren’t you in school?” Lonny said, “They sent me home because of sexual harassment.” Billy asked, “What’s that?” Lonny said, “That’s when you kiss a girl on her hand.” Billy said, “Ew! You shouldn’t ever kiss a girl anywhere!” [3.4, 84.3, 0%, 7.8, 150] The numbers following the story are: Grade Level, Reading Ease, percentage of passive voice, average number of words per sentence, and total number of words (always 150). The stories in Volume 2 range from 0.8 to 13.5 per the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level, and from 100 to 37.8 per Flesch Reading Ease—that is, something for everyone. Following the table of contents and the 500 stories is a list of all 500 stories sorted by grade level. After that is the partial index. Volume 1 (99 cents), English Learner 500 Short Stories for Beginner-Intermediate, ISBN: 978‐0‐9915994‐0‐0, is available at my website, eslyes.

Call Me Daddy from the Author: Benjamin P. Feldman. After taking his first wife, Adele Lowen, on a magic carpet ride from a middle-class existence on the Upper West Side to a life of opulence, Browning was duly repaid by being cuckolded multiple times by the svelte and gorgeous Adele. The devastated property mogul divorced her, but retained custody of Dorothy "Sunshine" Browning, one of their two adopted daughters. His antics in seeking a young teenage "playmate" for nine-year old Dorothy in 1925 through the classified ad columns of The Herald Tribune attracted the attention of the Queens County D.A. and attracted mobs of reporters and cameramen to his West 72nd Street offices where he personally interviewed many of the 12,000 applicants for the position, finally selecting a Czech girl who lied to him about her age and family circumstances.With the adoption annulled after one week, Browning, who preferred the nickname "Daddy" turned to other pursuits, sponsoring high-school sorority dances in New York with one condition: that he be invited to attend. 15-year old Frances "Peaches" Heenan, a sometime Textile High School student, met Browning at a Phi Lambda Tau social at the McAlpin Hotel. The two began a rapid-fire courtship with Peaches' parents knowledge and consent, and reporters dogging their every move.Chauffeured to school in Browning's peacock-blue Rolls Royce and showered with expensive gifts, the zaftig girl soon acquiesced to Browning's proposal, and the couple was married in Putnam County, NY in April 1926, in part to avoid intense scrutiny from New York City child protection authorities. The marriage lasted only a few months, though, and after Peaches and her mother (who lived with Browning in a series of posh hotels) walked out in October of that year with 20 trunks of finery, Browning sued for an order of separation. Years of litigation followed with Peaches suing unsuccessfully for divorce and alimony, based upon allegations of sexual barbarity. Browning remained one of the premier laughingstocks of New York and across America until his death in 1934.Call Me Daddy is author Benjamin Feldman's second book, and follows the successful publication of Butchery on Bond Street in the summer of 2007. Feldman's first book was brought out by New York Wanderer Press in association with The Green-Wood Historic Fund to a chorus of favorable reviews and extensive coverage in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Forward, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, many other newspapers, and on radio in the US and Canada.
