Below are two reviews that appeared in the October 2016 Issue of Sasee Magazine.
The Curse of Beauty by: James Bone
Audrey Munson was America’s first Supermodel. Audrey Munson posed for numerous famous sculptures. Her life seemed glorious, and yet, she spent the last half of her life in an insane asylum. Although little has been revealed about Munson’s life as a whole, her influence in today’s art world is still supreme.
James Bone provides research and photographs to tell Audrey’s story and the cultural phenomena that she inspired. If readers unfold the cover, they will be to see copies of newspaper articles and pictures of Munson. The author takes readers on a journey through the decades to give a more thorough account of Audrey’s life, including the horrific events that occurred when her doctor became obsessed with her.
Tears of Hope by Irena Maria Rozycki
Maria and Jozef Pawlukiewicz were Polish-Catholic farmers, during a time when the world was in an upheaval. Germany and the Soviet Union forced many innocent people into camps, based on their religion. The Pawlukiewicz couple were separated and forced to live several years in Siberian slave labor camps. This book tells their story and how their un-ending faith kept them alive and gave them hope for a brighter future.
Irena Maria Rozycki shares her parents’ stories in this biography. The author uses hand written letters and photographs to help tell their story to the world. The book is written in easy to read style, and reads like a historical novel, but the heart-wrenching fact is that these events truly did happen. The author gives readers an insider’s view into life during WWII.
