City of Girls By Elizabeth Gilbert

KShs1,350.00

In 1940, nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College, owing to her lacklustre freshman-year performance. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theatre called the Lily Playhouse. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters, from the fun-chasing showgirls to a sexy male actor, a grand-dame actress, a lady-killer writer, and no-nonsense stage manager. But when Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in a professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that it will take her years to fully understand. Ultimately, though, it leads her to a new understanding of the kind of life she craves-and the kind of freedom it takes to pursue it. It will also lead to the love of her life, a love that stands out from all the rest.

Now ninety-five years old and telling her story, at last, Vivian recalls how the events of those years altered the course of her life – and the gusto and autonomy with which she approached it. At some point in a woman’s life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time, she muses. After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is. Written with powerful wisdom about human desire and connection, City of Girls is a love story like no other.

    Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload?

    Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilized?

    Do you ever feel busy but not productive?

    If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist.

    In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a Leadership and Strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google, and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumption of ‘We can have it all’ and ‘I have to do everything’ and replacing it with the pursuit of ‘the right thing, in the right way, at the right time’.

    By applying more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy, and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter.

    Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organizations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.

    Across the Bridge book By Mwangi Gicheru

    Before I met Caroline, I had never dreamt of achieving anything beyond a bicycle and probably a tin-roofed slum. Now I was thinking of cars, bungalows, servants and whatever else Caroline missed by changing sides.

    But for a poor house-boy who has fallen in love with the beautiful daughter of his civil-servant master, the path to riches is not easy. In desperation Chuma moves from petty crime to a world of gangsters.

    It is only after much heartache on both sides that the two lovers are united.

    Don’t snooze through your 20s.

    Most of us have an internal alarm clock that goes off when we’re about to make a bad decision. Yet some of us spend our 20s hitting the snooze button.

    Steve Farrar urges you to wake up so you don’t ruin your life by 30.

    Although the book title and chapter titles are ironic and humorous, the wisdom contained in this book is not to be taken lightly. Steve invites you to take seriously the choices you make in your 20s and learn from the mistakes of others rather than making your own. Steve also helps you recover from poor choices made in the past and make better ones in the future.

    So if you really want to ruin your life by 30, don’t read this book. Just keep hitting that snooze button.
