Hawaiian Tales: The Girl With Heavenly Eyes by Lee A. Jacobus and published by Tell Me Press, gets high praise in this excellent Small Press Picks review: CLICK HERE
"Objects are closer than they appear." Lee A. Jacobus tips his writer's side-view mirror to reflect intimate and unexpected views of life in paradise. A collection of fourteen short stories set in the islands of Hawaii, Hawaiian Tales: The Girl with Heavenly Eyes looks beyond the surface lives of tourists and retirees, natives and transplants, to the joys and mysteries within. By turns tender, amusing, and pleasantly unsettling – but always intriguing – these short stories plant us firmly in a magical tropical landscape.
Lee A. Jacobus
Lee A. Jacobus, professor emeritus of English at UConn and author/editor of some of the country's most successful college textbooks on drama and the humanities, is a regular guest on Faith Middleton's NPR bookshow as well as other programs devoted to the celebration of the written word. With degrees from Brown and Claremont, Lee has written a range of works from scholarly monographs on Milton and Shakespeare to plays produced in New York and New Haven. Lee, a member of both the Author's Guild and the Dramatist's Guild, lives with his wife in Connecticut but found his imagination captured by Hawaii, the setting of these stories.
"Hawaiian Tales: The Girl with Heavenly Eyes not only entertains and enlightens—which is what you want from stories set against the backdrop of seductive, complex Hawaii—but also provokes and mesmerizes. Readers ... will fall in love with the characters and remember them long after they close the cover of this enchanting and original work."
—Gina Barreca, author of It’s Not That I’m Bitter . . . and They Used to Call Me Snow White . . . But I Drifted
"[A] splendid collection . . . Jacobus’s insightful examination of his characters’ lives and aspirations is matched by his evocative use of language and the deft architecture of his storytelling. I closed the book with a better understanding of the costs, as well as the dividends, of life in this exotic Pacific paradise."
—Wally Lamb, author of She’s Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True
“In an age of information overload, anesthesia—the ‘art of comfort’—remains the dark continent of medicine for most patients. We put ourselves in the presiding doctor’s hands blindly, trusting that our pain and awareness will be dulled in exchange for giving ourselves over to the needle, the gas mask, the IV full of narcotics and sedatives. Before the Scalpel does an admirable job of closing this gap, presenting the whys and wherefores of anesthesia in a crisp and lucid style. Panchali Dhar has thought of all the possible questions and fears that patients might have concerning this crucial but mostly unexplained procedure and addresses them one by one. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to be better informed about his or her medical care.”
—Daphne Merkin, novelist, critic, and contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine
“A must-read for all of us who fear undergoing anesthesia. Dr. Dhar provides reassurance with her detailed but easily understandable explanations of the anesthesia process before, during, and after surgery. By imparting her knowledge and sage advice, she helps patients become enlightened and empowered to help themselves in a situation that often requires relinquishing control of consciousness. . . . Kudos to Dr. Dhar for making the complicated world of anesthesia so comprehensible!”
—Lisa G. Newman, MD, assistant professor of medicine, NYU School of Medicine
“Dr. Panchali Dhar sends a clear message essential to the most important tenet we all seek: patient safety through education, which leads to knowledge, which leads to empowerment.”
—Carol Weihrer, The Anesthesia Awareness Campaign
“In Before the Scalpel, [Panchali Dhar] has given us the right information, at the right time, and presented the right way. Perfect! All my patients, family, and friends having surgeries will be getting a copy!”
—Rodney Dunetz, MS, AP, DOM, acupuncture physician and doctor of oriental medicine, Boca Raton, FL
“Before the Scalpel is an impressively thorough, informative, educational, concise, and demystifying reference guide for the emotionally unprepared surgical patient, in addition to any and all health care professionals involved with the surgical process.”
—Thomas Bolte, MD, medical director of Bolte Medical, New York City
