Описание: Tenderly and courageously told, Gracefully Grayson is a small miracle of a book. Its story is so compelling I found myself holding my breath as I read it and so intimate I felt as if what was happening to Grayson was happening to me. Thank you, Ami Polonsky, for creating this memorable character who will open hearts and minds and very possibly be the miracle that changes lives. -James Howe, award-winning and best-selling author of The Misfits

What if who you are on the outside doesnt match who you are on the inside?

Grayson Sender has been holding onto a secret for what seems like forever: he is a girl on the inside, stuck in the wrong genders body. The weight of this secret is crushing, but sharing it would mean facing ridicule, scorn, rejection, or worse. Despite the risks, Graysons true self itches to break free. Will new strength from an unexpected friendship and a caring teachers wisdom be enough to help Grayson step into the spotlight she was born to inhabit?

Debut author Ami Polonskys moving, beautifully-written novel about identity, self-esteem, and friendship shines with the strength of a young persons spirit and the enduring power of acceptance.

Praise for Gracefully Grayson

Dont be intimidated when I say that Gracefully Grayson is an important book. (It is.) Its also a brave, exhilarating, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride of self-discovery that will leave you cheering.
-Dean Pitchford, Oscar-winning songwriter and award-winning author of Captain Nobody and Nickel Bay Nick In this sweet and thoughtful debut, an introverted sixth grader begins to come into her own as a transgender girl. The writing is clear and effortless, with a straightforward plot and likable characters. Grayson is a charming narrator who balances uncertainty with clarity, bravery with anxiety. This title has less obvious and didactic intent than other novels featuring transgender protagonists. A welcome addition to a burgeoning genre.
-School Library Journal
Thoughtfully told through Graysons eyes, the story conveys his angst, hurt, loss, and emerging confidence as he struggles with a whirlwind of emotions. His new friends allow him to find the courage to become who she really is, and we are privileged to watch the transformation take place. With great courage, Polonskys debut novel reminds us with much sensitivity that we are all unique and deserve to become who we are meant to be.
-Booklist Polonsky captures the loneliness of a child resigned to disappear rather than be rejected, and then the courageous risk that child eventually takes to be seen for who she is. The first-person narration successfully positions readers to experience Graysons confusion, fear, pain, and triumphs as they happen, lending an immediate and intimate feel to the narrative. -Horn Book

Описание: Letters from Russia. When Rachel Polonsky went to live in Moscow, she found an apartment in Romanov St, once a residence of the Soviet elite. One of those ghostly neighbours was Stalin`s henchman Vyacheslav Molotov. In his former apartment, Polonsky discovered his library and an old magic lantern. Molotov, ruthless apparatchik, participant in the collectivizations and the Great Purge, was also an ardent bibliophile. Molotov`s library and his magic lantern became the prisms through which Polonsky renewed her vision of Russia. This is a luminous, original and unforgettable exploration of a country and its literature, viewed through the eyes of Molotov.

Описание:

When the British journalist Rachel Polonsky moves to Moscow, she discovers an apartment on Romanov Street that was once home to the Soviet elite. One of the most infamous neighbors was the ruthless apparatchik, Stalin’s henchman, Vyacheslav Molotov, who was a participant in the collectivizations and the Great Purge—and also an ardent bibliophile. In what was formerly his apartment, Polonsky uncovers an extensive library and an old magic lantern—two things that lead her on an extraordinary journey throughout Russia and ultimately renew her vision of the country and its people.
In "Molotov’s Magic Lantern," Polonsky visits the haunted cities and vivid landscapes of the books from Molotov’s library: works by Chekhov, Dostoevsky, Pushkin, Akhmatova, and others, some of whom were sent to the Gulag by the very man who collected their books. With exceptional insight and beautiful prose, Polonsky writes about the longings and aspirations of these Russian writers and others in the course of her travels from the Arctic to Siberia and from the forests around Moscow to the vast steppes. A singular homage to Russian history and culture, "Molotov’s Magic Lantern "evokes the spirit of the great artists and the haunted past of a country ravaged by war, famine, and totalitarianism.

Waltz with Bashir: A Lebanon War Story

Описание: "Special, strange, and peculiarly potent... Extraordinary." --"Variety"

One night in Beirut in September 1982, while Israeli soldiers secured the area, Christian militia members entered the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila and began to massacre hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinians. Ari Folman was one of those Israeli soldiers, but for more than twenty years he remembered nothing of that night or of the weeks leading up to it. Then came a friend's disturbing dream, and with it Folman's need to excavate the truth of the war in Lebanon and answer the crucial question: what was he doing during the hours of slaughter?

Challenging the collective amnesia of friends and fellow soldiers, Folman painfully, candidly pieces together the war and his place in it. Gradually, the blankness of his mind is filled in by scenes of combat and patrol, misery and carnage, as well as dreams and hallucinations. Soldiers are haunted by inexplicable nightmares and flashbacks--snapping, growling dogs with teeth bared and eyes glowing orange; a recurring image of three young men rising naked out of the sea to drift into the Beirut battlefield. Tanks crush cars and buildings with lethal indifference; snipers pick off men on donkeys, men in cars, men drinking coffee; a soldier waltzes through a storm of bullets; rock songs fill the air, and then yellow flares. The recollections accumulate until Ari Folman arrives at Sabra and Shatila and his investigation reaches its terrible end.

The result is a gripping reconstruction, a probing inquiry into the unreliable quality of memory, and, above all, a powerful denunciation of the senselessness of all wars. Profoundly original in form and approach, "Waltz with Bashir" will take its place as one of the great works of wartime testimony. Ari Folman, a Tel Aviv-based filmmaker, wrote, produced, and directed the animated documentary "Waltz with Bashir." His two previous feature films, "Saint Clara "and "Made in Israel," both received numerous Israeli academy awards, among them best film and best director for "Saint Clara," which also won the People's Choice Award at the 1996 Berlin Film Festival. In addition, he produces and writes for television, including for the Israeli series "In Treatment," which was remade in the United States for HBO.

David Polonsky was the art director and chief illustrator for the animated film "Waltz with Bashir." His illustrations have appeared in every major Israeli daily and magazine. He has created animated short films for Israeli television, received multiple awards for his children's book illustrations, and teaches at Bezalel, Israel's prestigious art academy.
