Book Summary:

Wendy Lawson has an autism spectrum disorder. Considered to be intellectually disabled and 'almost incapable of doing as she is told' at school, she was later misdiagnosed as schizophrenic - a label that stuck with her for more than 25 years. Her sense of self was then non-existent, but Wendy is now a mother of four with two university degrees; she is a social worker and adult educator, and operates her own business. She is also a poet and a writer, sharing her understanding of autism with others to help 'build a bridge from my world to theirs'. Life Behind Glass is part of that bridge.

Book Summary:

Life Behind the Train Station is a fictional novel about a poor family with Native American and European ancestry. The story is based on life in North Carolina during the 1940's and early 1950's. Prejudices towards the poor and the paper genocide of the Native American people are muted tones of the story. The story concerns the daily life of the Lister family. Much of the story is told through the eyes of one of the young Lister girls. It highlights their challenges as they navigate life through a world that is not always accepting of people of a different background or race. Detailed are the hardships, struggles, joys, and acts of evil faced by this family. Complications of family dynamics add to the provocations that the Lister family must accept or overcome. Featured are the people that God places in their lives that teach them of God's love, redemption and mercy. These good people help the Lister family learn how to live Christian lives. They lead by example, accepting the Lister family as they are and showing them that all strangers are not bad. The Lister family learns to trust the goodness in others. Through God's grace, this family learns that although there are many dark sides to life, there is also much goodness in the world. Through difficult times, they learn to look to God for guidance. They have their Christian friends to support them through life's hardships and challenges. The family learns to have hope for a better life

Book Summary:

The reverse-glass paintings of Senegal are cultural testimonies of the highest value, capturing the colour of daily life in town and country. This deceptively modest art-form involves a technique whereby the image is rendered in paint on the back of a sheet of glass; the finished work is viewed from the other side, thus taking full advantage of the transparency and luminosity of the glass. This popular art-form emerged by the end of the 19th century, and was at first limited to Islamic themes painted by anonymous craftsmen; gradually, however, portraiture, landscapes, genre scenes and other subjects came to be included in the repertory. In recent years some artists have become celebrities, and reverse-glass paintings are now bought by collectors from many parts of the world. Senegal Behind Glass is the first comprehensive survey of Senegalese reverse-glass painting ever to appear, and it includes some of the earliest surviving examples as well as providing a rich selection of works by the best recent artists, among them Gora Mbengue, Babacar Lo, Mor Gueye, Ibrahima Sall and Alexis Ngom. The Introduction fully sets out the particular historical and thematic issues that bear on the genesis and development of this art-form, while over 150 plates reproduced in full colour carry commentaries that elucidate the intriguing local customs, tales and proverbs these remarkably innovative artists have captured behind glass.
