In Japan the Crickets Cry
Delve deep into the mind of the medium in this tell-all account from Kelvin - the psychic medium himself. This is a story about what it was like to grow up in a Germany, dominated by Adolf Hitler and feared Nazis The terrifying legend of Count Dracula silently skulking through the Transylvania night may have terrified generations of filmgoers, but the tall, elegant vampire captivated and electrified a young Jane Congdon igniting a dream to one day see his mysterious land of ancient castles and misty hollows. Four decades later she finally takes her long - awaited trip - never dreaming that it would unearth decades - buried memories of life with an alcoholic mother, and trigger a life - changing inner journey.
Unfolding in 18 days as she followed the footsteps of Dracula from Bucharest, to the Carpathian Mountains, and the Black Sea.
Dracula's legend becomes the prism through which she would revisit her childhood and lay claim to a happiness she had never known. Judith Smart is severely disabled with cerebral palsy, and all her life has struggled to maintain her independence. In her autobiography she tells her life story in her own words, typed with one finger over many months and years, on her own word processor. The chapters cover all the stages of her life. They begin with the day when the doctors told her mother to "put your daughter into an institution and forget about her" through many years of boarding school and into residential care.
Finally, we follow her as she makes her bid for freedom: out into the world and into a job, a car and independent living, having gained two university degrees. Her story is inspiring, funny and challenging. She reveals some private problems and secret struggles that able-bodied people may not always recognise, particularly the lack of empathy and respect that disabled people so often encounter.
Yet Judith's gentle and patient nature has enabled her to triumph over loneliness, cancer and neglect and transform these problems into opportunities to learn and grow.
There is laughter to be found in almost every situation. This is a celebration of friendship, determination and the power of love over adversity. Judith always knew that she would never walk alone but, thanks to her sunny disposition and philosophical attitude, she never has : - her many friends will always walk with her.
Her mother in particular was always a stalwart ally and this book is dedicated to her memory. Iris Origo was one of the twentieth century's most attractive and intriguing women, a brilliantly perceptive historian and biographer whose works remains widely admired.

Iris grew up in Italy with her Irish mother after the death of her wealthy American father. When Iris married Antonio Origo, they bought and revived La Foce, a derelict stretch of the beautiful Val d'Orcia valley in Tuscany and created an estate that thrives to this day. During World War II they sided firmly with the Allies, taking considerable risks in protecting children and sheltering partisans and Iris's diary from that time, War in Val d'Orcia, is now considered a modern classic.

Caroline Moorehead has drawn on many previously unpublished letters, diaries, and papers to write the definitive biography of a very remarkable woman. Insightful, inspirational, intelligent, it is a book to be read at a sitting, a story you finish newly conscious of life's fragility, determined to make every heartbeat count. A childhood illness she was not expected to survive.
