New York Times bestselling author and “the reigning champ of nostalgia noir” (The New York Times Book Review) James Lee Burke returns with a powerful novel in the Holland Family series, an atmospheric coming-of-age story set in 1950s Texas, as the specter of the Korean War looms. On its surface, life in 1950s Houston is as you’d expect: stoic fathers, restless teens, drive-in movies, and souped-up Cadillacs. But underneath that surface lies a world shifting under high school junior Aaron Holland Broussard’s feet. The underlying class war between the haves and have nots is growing steadily, along with the menace of conflict overseas in Korea, providing a harrowing backdrop to his growth to manhood. But when Aaron spots the beautiful Valerie Epstein at a drive-in, he steps in when he sees her fighting with her boyfriend, Grady Harrelson. Aaron’s newfound confidence helps catch Valerie’s eye, and the two begin dating. Grady is a live wire though, and presents a looming problem for Aaron. You will recall the feelings and inspirational power of your first love, and empathize with Aaron’s extraordinary challenges to protect himself and the ones he loves in “this dark, atmospheric story” (Publishers Weekly). The Jealous Kind illustrates how first loves, friendship, violence, and power can alter what traditional America means for the people trying to find their way in a changing world.

The world of 3 reflects on the concept of mind, body and soul. To answer an age old philosophical question and provide proofs of reason.There comes a time when things which are destined to be manifest become clear and the truth of the words written shed light on the thoughts of the mind, the actions of the body and the will of the soul. The Book was intended for the purpose of reaching an understanding after years of study and some nuggets among the various troubling thoughts of the time, and then whilst the storm settled and following 6 troubled years fighting mental illness and instiutionalisation and still pursuing a course independent of what mainstream education had to offer, a simple tool rather than years spent in academia paying off costly debts, and working among students which would take up your time, instead a daily routine to question, critically examine and evaluate the thoughts until something unique and original became known. In 2008 the book was formalised and for the next two years was developed and brought into existence. The book intends to give insight to the life of one deemed insane and through his experience sheds a light onto the wider world, also questioning the difference between mental illness and creativity. It is the unravelling of mysteries which people have talked of but never put to writing, it is a long journey of logical understanding to keep a light within to search for answers.
