Roxanne Coady: Notes From My (Book)Shelf: September 7, 2012
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The fall, the beginning of the school year, is still, for me, the New Year - the time for new commitments, more learning and a fresh dose of "everything is possible." I would like to share a rite of passage I serendipitously got to witness driving to work on a gloriously sunny, crisp morning last week. Right at the end of our street, in front of the firehouse, was a gaggle of camera-toting adults along with an array of 5 and 6 year olds, all dressed up for their first day of school (not the adults-the kids). As I drove on, there were 3 or 4 more such gatherings. It was a surprise to feel so emotional watching the parents and grandparents as they waved goodbye, took pictures and took long, deep breaths. It was joyous-the exuberance of beginnings, the excitement, the worry, and above all, the enthusiasm. For our children, this begins with school, and school is all about our teachers. So I will begin with Tony Danza (yes, that Tony Danza) and his new book I'd Like to Apolog ...

Earlier this week, Kati Marton wrote about the French Jewish family the Camondos and Paris’s black marble plaques. Her blog posts are featured on The Arty Semite courtesy of the Jewish Book Council and My Jewish Learning’s Author Blog Series. For more information on the series, please visit: Now that I live part-time in Paris, I explore the city’s complex and sometimes disturbing relationship to toward its Jewish citizens — which given my own Jewish heritage, feels personal to me. In “Paris: A Love Story,” I probe this aspect of the city which most tourists miss. In my Paris neighborhood, I am discovering France’s historic fear of outsiders. Indifference to the fate of those not inside their circle is the underside of the French passion for privacy, for la discretion. A country that has experienced multiple invasions and a catastrophic loss of life in World War I has low expectations of humanity — and an understandable fear of les etrangers — strangers. “C’est normale,” ...

Two Darknesses
The New Republic - over 4 years
Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937–1948 By Madeleine Albright with Bill Woodward (Harper Collins, 467 pp., $29.99)   Madeleine Albright, née Korbel, is the first woman and the second foreign-born person to have attained to the highest-ranking Cabinet position in the American government, that of secretary of state. She is also the first East European to have served in any Cabinet position. Add to this her warm and convincing style, the generally favorable judgment about her tenure in the Cabinet, and her highly unusual life, and it is no wonder that Prague Winter made the best-seller list. This book is an innovative amalgam of personal reminiscences, tales told by parents and friends, lessons learned in the schools of three countries, and conclusions drawn from her use of printed and unprinted sources. The book takes us from the medieval beginnings of Czech history through the post–World War I creation of Czechoslovakia, ...
