Today's featured book and author:

Golden Rainbow

Author Name: Balaka Basu
Age category: Adult
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs

Brief description:
Golden Rainbow is an interesting collection of 26 memoirs written as short stories. These are not heroic tales but ordinary stories of ordinary people; nevertheless, they are thought-provoking. Some of them will make you laugh out loud while others may make you cry. The stories are rich in emotion, empathy and compassion.They are deeply profound. Reading the short stories is like a visit to Kolkata and typical Bengali life. You will connect with so many characters from your own real life but with different names. The anecdotes are not just stories but also a smart commentary on the various aspects of society. Easy to read, they will directly appeal to anyone fond of short stories. This book is not just a one-time read. It gets better with each reading.

    Please read this. Don't run away. This book is about ("Domestic abuse") and ('Sexual Abuse") Most people don't want to talk about it? You say taboo you say "NO" too hard subject.
    It entitles everyone to be brought up in a safe and secure environment, free from violence, abuse, and cruelty. It is one of the fundamental rights of anyone brought into the world by parents who should love and care for them above all else.
    But for Robert Sherriff, it wasn't like that. First behind the closed doors of an ordinary family home and then in the dark recesses of a society that was ill-equipped to deal with the trauma and suffering he experienced, Robert found that mercy was just a dream.
    At the hands of a brutally violent father, his complicit mother and a society indifferent to his suffering, Robert became another statistic in the South Australia State's role of shame, exposed to institutional abuse, rape, and murder.
    In his book, Nobody's Home, Robert tells his story in graphic detail as he literally struggles to survive a system where young children were commodities and the law turned a blind eye to unimaginable evil.
