Bestselling author Mitch Albom returns to nonfiction for the first time in more than a decade in this poignant memoir that celebrates Chika, a young Haitian orphan whose short life would forever change his heart. Chika Jeune was born three days before the devastating earthquake that decimated Haiti in She spent her infancy in a landscape of extreme poverty, and when her mother died giving birth to a baby brother, Chika was brought to The Have Faith Haiti Orphanage that Albom operates in Port Au Prince. With no children of their own, the forty-plus children who live, play, and go to school at the orphanage have become family to Mitch and his wife, Janine.
Mitchell David Albom born May 23, is an American author, journalist, and musician. His books have sold over 39 million copies  worldwide. Having achieved national recognition for sports writing in his early career, he is perhaps best known for the inspirational stories and themes that weave through his books, plays, and films.
Albom lives with his wife Janine Sabino in Detroit. He grew up in a small, middle-class neighborhood which most people never left. Albom was once quoted as saying that his parents were very supportive, and always used to say, "Don't expect your life to finish here. There's a big world out there. Go out and see it. His siblings are currently settled in Europe. While living in New York, Albom developed an interest in journalism.
Still supporting himself by working nights in the music industry, he began to write during the day for the Queens Tribune , a weekly newspaper in Flushing, New York. During his time there, to help pay his tuition he took work as a babysitter. In , he was hired as a full-time feature writer for The Fort Lauderdale News and Sun Sentinel , and eventually promoted to columnist. Albom's sports column quickly became popular. In , when the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News merged weekend publications, Albom was asked to add a weekly non-sports column to his duties.
That column ran on Sundays in the "Comment" section and dealt with American life and values. It was eventually syndicated across the country. Both columns continue today in the Detroit Free Press. During his years in Detroit, he became one of the most award-winning sports writers of his era. He was named best sports columnist in the nation a record 13 times by the Associated Press Sports Editors and won best feature writing honors from that same organization a record seven times.
No other writer has received the award more than once. The selection was heavily criticized by a number of Albom's peers, including fellow Red Smith Award winner Dave Kindred.
Albom also serves as a contributing editor to Parade magazine. In , Albom and four editors were briefly suspended from the Detroit Free Press after Albom wrote a column that stated that two college basketball players were in the crowd at an NCAA tournament game when in fact they were not. The players had told Albom they planned to attend, so Albom, filing on his normal Friday deadline but knowing the column could not come out until Sunday after the game was over wrote that the players were there.
But the players' plans changed at the last minute and they did not attend the game. The Detroit Free Press also suspended the four editors who had read the column and allowed it to go to print. Albom was in attendance at the game, but the columnist failed to check on the two players' presence. A later internal investigation found no other similar instances in Albom's past columns, but did cite an editorial-wide problem of routinely using unattributed quotes from other sources.
I allowed myself to believe that we were doing this highly credible, highly transparent thing, when really in hindsight what I think we were doing was acquiescing to people who were taking advantage of a stupid mistake. The book was published in November and also became a New York Times bestseller. Albom's breakthrough book came about after he was rotating the TV channels and viewed Morrie Schwartz 's interview with Ted Koppel on ABC News Nightline in , in which Schwartz, a sociology professor, spoke about living and dying with a terminal disease, ALS amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease.
Albom, who was close to Schwartz during his college years at Brandeis University , felt guilty about not keeping in touch so he reconnected with his former professor, visiting him in suburban Boston and eventually coming every Tuesday for discussions about life and death.
Albom, seeking a way to pay for Schwartz's medical bills, sought out a publisher for a book about their visits. Although rejected by numerous publishing houses, Doubleday accepted the idea shortly before Schwartz's death as Albom was able to fulfill his wish to pay Schwartz's bills. Tuesdays with Morrie , which chronicled Albom's time spent with his professor, was published in The initial printing was 20, copies.

Charley "Chick" Benetto is a retired baseball player who, facing the pain of unrealized dreams, alcoholism, divorce, and an estrangement from his grown daughter, returns to his childhood home and attempts suicide.
There he meets his long dead mother, who welcomes him as if nothing ever happened. The book explores the question, "What would you do if you had one more day with someone you've lost?
Albom has said his relationship with his own mother was largely behind the story of that book, and that several incidents in For One More Day are actual events from his childhood. Have a Little Faith , Albom's first nonfiction book since Tuesdays With Morrie , was released on September 29, , through Hyperion publishing, and recounts Albom's experiences that led to him writing the eulogy for Albert L. Lewis , a Rabbi from his hometown in New Jersey.
Through this experience, Albom writes, his own sense of faith was reawakened, leading him to make contact with Henry Covington, the African-American pastor of the I Am My Brother's Keeper church, in Detroit, where Albom was then living.
Covington, a past drug addict, dealer, and ex-convict, ministered to a congregation of largely homeless men and women in a church so poor that the roof leaked when it rained. From his relationships with these two very different men of faith, Albom writes about the difference faith can make in the world.
This work focuses on the inventor of the world's first clock, who is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who came after him seeking more days and years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time.
He returns to our world now dominated by the hour and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: a teenage girl who is about to give up on life and a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever.
To save himself, he must save them both. In , Albom moved to a new publisher, HarperCollins , for the publication of his seventh book and fourth novel. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax?
Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father recently released from prison, is determined to find the truth. The town is fictional, and not the real Coldwater, Michigan, but Albom pays tribute to the real small town in the book's acknowledgements. His longest book at almost pages, it chronicles the life and mysterious death of the fictional musician Frankie Presto, as narrated by the voice of Music.
An orphan born in a burning church in Spain in , Frankie is blessed with musical ability. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six precious strings. His Forrest Gump-like journey takes him through the musical landscape of the 20th century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll super stardom, meeting and working with other greats like Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carole King, Little Richard, and even The Beatles.
An original song soundtrack for the book was released by Republic Records four days before the book's release. A sequel to The Five People You Meet in Heaven , the novel tells the story of Eddie's heavenly reunion with Annie, the little girl he saved on earth in the first book.

As he sipped a cappuccino, Blume watched the man in the car suck a pen and make a mark in his book. He could bake it in salt, boil three potatoes. The fishmonger asked if Blume wanted him to clean the fish. Did any of the old women clean the fish themselves for the pleasure of it, or could you use the insides, like giblets. He took it up to his apartment, placed it in the fridge, straightened the sofa cushions, ran a Pledge grab-it cloth over the piano and television, then left.

Она девушка Эдуардо, болван. Только тронь ее, и он тебя прикончит. ГЛАВА 56 Мидж Милкен в сердцах выскочила из своего кабинета и уединилась в комнате для заседаний, которая располагалась точно напротив. Кроме тридцати футов ого стола красного дерева с буквами АНБ в центре столешницы, выложенной из черных пластинок вишневого и орехового дерева, комнату украшали три акварели Мариона Пайка, ваза с листьями папоротника, мраморная барная стойка и, разумеется, бачок для охлаждения воды фирмы Спарклетс. Мидж налила себе стакан воды, надеясь, что это поможет ей успокоиться. Делая маленькие глотки, она смотрела в окно.
Этот звонок будет для Хейла полной неожиданностью. Он запаникует и в конце концов, столкнувшись с группой вооруженных людей, ничего не сможет поделать. После минутного упорства ему придется уступить. Но если я вызову агентов безопасности, весь мой план рухнет, - подумал. Хейл сдавил горло Сьюзан немного сильнее, и она вскрикнула от боли. - Ну что, вы решили.
Почему вы ушли из парка? - спросил Беккер. - Умер человек. Почему вы не дождались полицейских. И не отдали кольцо. - Мне много чего нужно, мистер Беккер, но неприятности точно не нужны. Кроме того, тот старик вроде бы обо всем позаботился.
Чаша была уже совсем близко, когда Халохот заметил человека в пиджаке и брюках разного цвета. - Estas ya muerto, - тихо прошептал он, двигаясь по центральному проходу. Ты уже мертвец.
- Что он ищет? - Мгновение он испытывал неловкость, всматриваясь в экран, а потом принял решение. Хейл достаточно понимал язык программирования Лимбо, чтобы знать, что он очень похож на языки Си и Паскаль, которые были его стихией. Убедившись еще раз, что Сьюзан и Стратмор продолжают разговаривать, Хейл начал импровизировать. Введя несколько модифицированных команд на языке Паскаль, он нажал команду ВОЗВРАТ. Окно местоположения Следопыта откликнулось именно так, как он рассчитывал.
Директор наверняка обратил внимание на выражение глаз Мидж, когда она выходила. - Не выпускай ее из приемной.
