Conversations With Myself, Nelson Mandela, Forward by President Barack Obama
Nelson Mandela is one of the most inspiring and iconic figures of our age. Now, after a lifetime of taking pen to paper to record thoughts and events, hardships and victories, he has opened his personal archive, which offers unprecedented insight into his remarkable life.
From letters written in the darkest hours of his twenty seven years of imprisonment to the draft of an unfinished sequel to Long Walk to Freedom, Conversations With Myself gives readers access to the private man behind the public figure. Here he is making notes and even doodling during meetings, or transcribing troubled dreams on the desk calendar in his cell on Robben Island; writing journals while on the run during the anti-apartheid struggle in the early 1960s, or conversing with friends in almost seventy hours of recorded conversations. Here he's neither an icon nor a saint.
An intimate journey from the first stirrings of his political conscience to his galvanizing role on the world stage; Conversations With Myself is a rare chance to spend time with Nelson Mandela the man, in his own voice; direct, clear, private.
"In real life we deal not with gods, but with ordinary humans like ourselves: men and women who are full of contradictions, who are stable and fickle, strong and weak, famous and infamous."
, an Avalon Western, Terrell L. Bowers
Keith Konniger enjoys his quiet, solitary life as a hunter. But when he rescues a woman and a child his world is turned upside down, and then twisted a little bit more.

Konn soon learns that even more devastating than the punishment he's facing for coming to the aid of his two companions is the pain of loving someone who will never return his love in return. His misery is eased only by the continued threat on his life, so when death comes looking for Konn, he welcomes the chance to meet it head on!
