The unique and inspiring story of a boy born with the odds against him and the family whose love and support helped him overcome incredible hardships. Robert Hoge was born with a giant tumour on his forehead, severely distorted facial features and legs that were twisted and useless. His mother refused to look at her son, let alone bring him home. But home he went, to a life that, against the odds, was filled with joy, optimism and boyhood naughtiness. Home for the Hoges was a bayside suburb of Brisbane. Robert's parents, Mary and Vince, knew that his life would be difficult, but they were determined to give him a typical Australian childhood. So along with the regular, gruelling and often dangerous operations that made medical history and gradually improved Robert's life, there were bad haircuts, visits to the local pool, school camps and dreams of summer sports. Ugly is Robert's account of that life, from the time of his birth to the arrival of his own daughter. It is a story of how the love and support of his family helped him to overcome incredible hardships. It is also the story of an extraordinary person living an ordinary life, which is perhaps his greatest achievement of all. 'There is much to be learned from this ugly man whose spirit is truly beautiful' - Saturday Age 'This is an incredible life story that will no doubt attract much publicity and discussion about beauty, ugliness and how we value ourselves' - Australian Bookseller + Publisher 'If Robert Hoge reckons he belongs to the Ugly Club, then "ugly" must mean humour and courage, love and decency' - William McInnes '[A] frank, wry and funny memoir...' - Sunday Age 'This fabulous easy-to-read tale is a treasure for anyone who has ever given their looks a second thought. Ugly offers a bracing perspective on life, love and the real definition of beauty. - Good Reading Author Biography Robert Hoge has worked as a journalist, a speechwriter, a science communicator for the CSIRO and a political advisor to the former Queensland Premier and Deputy Premier. He has had numerous short stories, articles, interviews and other works published in Australia and overseas. He also enjoys photography, and is interested in disability advocacy and social engagement. While he never went far with his professional lawn bowls career, Robert did carry the Olympic torch in 2000. He is married and lives in Brisbane. He has an eleven-year-old daughter who thinks his Olympic torch would make a really great cricket bat.

On the day she received what would be the second pink slip in her career, forty-something Donna Gillis found herself single, jobless, broke, and just about broken. Feeling as if her promising future had never arrived, Donna took a long look back at her life. As she tried to figure out how her dream slipped by, while everything else went wrong, she realized that her face-her very flawed face-had become her life. In a society that is consumed with appearance, Donna's face has been through a lot. With refreshing honesty and wit, Donna chronicles how, for decades, she struggled to live and love with her appearance. Her journey to the truth leads her from the day she first wanted to disappear in seventh grade to entering a makeover contest on the television show Live! with Regis & Kathie Lee-which, much to her surprise, she wins. As she stands behind the curtains of the set, Donna wonders if opening them could be the biggest mistake of her life. "The Pretty Ugly Truth about My Face" is a tart, moving, and eye-opening story that casts a powerful light on what a woman might do to look and feel better. A memoir about vanity, relationships, self-acceptance, cosmetic surgery...and acne, it is also a story about the need for love, and finding the most unexpected one in the end.

Frieda Annette Brown grew up in the inner city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She and her five brothers were the illegitimate offspring of Hetty Anna Brown, a wayward and promiscuous soul with a lustful, reckless spirit and a heartless neglect for the welfare of her children. Hetty's willful abandonment left her six children susceptible to the harsh and unforgiving elements and predators of their urban streets. Frieda was seven when her nightmares began. Forced to bear the burdens of numerous aggressors, the child would endure a lonely battle to overcome child abuse, of which most occurred within the families. The climb to overcome the trials and tribulations that plagued her life was unimaginable, as Frieda struggled to maintain belief that a better life was possible, if she could first break free from this dysfunctional environment. Climbing the Broken Stairs, is an inspiring true-life journey of determination, and an inspiring and personal testament to the mercy, power, and glory of God.

This is the heart-warming story of a backward boy coming from a dysfunctional family and a broken home. Unable to talk at age four, he was sent to a boarding school to learn to speak. Branded a moron and dragged through ten schools in seven years, he suddenly "finds his feet" and becomes dux of one of India's most prestigious colleges. Later he becomes an officer in one of the Indian Army's most famous regiments and Adjutant of its premier battalion. Laugh at his misfortunes and exult in his successes. At age four he barely escapes a kidnap attempt, he travels to boarding school on the world's most famous railway, Darjeeling's toy train, which was once chased by a wild elephant. Accompany the author as he goes to catch a monkey and shoot a panther, and as his Brigade confronts the Russians over possession of the Iranian oilfields; and he reads fairy tales to a blood-thirsty Pathan warrior who asks if the stories are true! Feel the desperation of millions as murder and mayhem stalk the Indian sub-continent. See the refugee trains, ushered in by the granting of independence to India in 1947 when inter-communal violence spawned ten million refugees overnight and one million hapless men, women and children were slaughtered.
