Gidla is certain that the horror of caste is all-pervasive. Aug 29, Hafeez Lakhani rated it it was amazing Shelves: memoir. And Sarah was a mother, my mother away from home. Preview — Black Elephants by Karol Nielsen. Satyam the firebrand poet and freedom fighter is pampered, always shadowed by an assistant who clips his nails and shaves his beard; he chooses a wife who virtually becomes his domestic servant. In order to explain the centuries-old Hindu caste system to a western audience, Gidla draws parallels with anti-black racism. More filters.
Profession: Author. May 07, Minutes. Craig Ferguson has defied the odds his entire life. He has failed when he should have succeeded and succeeded when he should have failed.
The fact that he is neither dead nor in a locked facility at the time of printing is something of a miracle in itself. In Riding the Elephant , there are some stories that are too graphic for television, too politically incorrect for social media, or too meditative for a stand-up comedy performance.
Craig discusses his deep love for his native Scotland, examines his profound psychic change brought on by fatherhood, and looks at aging and mortality with a perspective that he was incapable of as a younger man.
Each story is strung together in a colorful tapestry that ultimately reveals a complicated man who has learned to process—and even enjoy—the unusual trajectory of his life. He is the author of a bunch of screenplays, a few of which have actually been made into talking pictures. Collectively, they serve as often poignant meditations on the long journey toward his late-middle-aged self. An entertaining memoir by a humorist who has gained enlightening insight into living an authentic life. Join Reader Rewards and earn your way to a free book!
