ARLINGTON, Texas, March 18, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A Snake Under A Thatch is a sequel to Chike Momah's first novel, Friends And Dreams. It is the story of one man's despairing search for justice, and is narrated by its two leading characters, Cyril Jideofo and Jacob Bola Akande. In the prequel, Cyril was betrayed by his friend, Bernard Ekwekwe, and was sent to prison for eight long years for a crime he did not commit. He was obsessed by the cruel injustice of his fate, and eager to vindicate himself and establish his innocence. For this, he desperately searched for a powerful letter written by Bernard, a letter he was sure would absolutely prove his innocence.
Leaving a Lasting Legacy of Love for Music -- This Authorized Biography is a Revealing and Enriching Look At the Eventful Life and Illustrious Career of Romanian-Born American Conductor Sergiu Comissiona
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 18, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compellingly written by Cecilia Burcescu (with a Coda by Murry Sidlin), Maestro Sergiu Comissiona's authorized biography, A Romanian Rhapsody, reveals facts about his happy childhood in a Jewish petit bourgeois family in Bucharest (then "the little Paris of Eastern Europe"), his adolescence under the Nazi specter, and his youth in repressive communist times behind the Iron Curtain. His life changes as he leaves behind the closed horizons of communist Romania for the broad ones of the Western world when he immigrates to Israel, later settling in England, then Sweden, and, finally, the United States. The book follows chronologically and analytically his career path, from an ensemble violinist to an internationally-renowned conductor, based on his own accounts, extended research, and revealing testimonials. The Maestro's rationale for having his biography written was, in his own words, "for the Westerners to understand my deep attachment to my Romanian roots, for the Romanians to know about my struggle for artistic affirmation in the Western world, and mostly for young conductors to realize that through passion, patience and persistence -- and by not committing suicide after the first failure -- the dedicated commitment to the profession bears fruit."
