Lili is growing up on the outskirts of Paris. As a child, she "lay in the crook of her mother's arm, in her mother's warm, sweat-smelling embrace, a smell like hay, like over-ripe peaches, and that was God." And as she matures, Lili's faith remains so intense that she becomes alienated from her family, observing the foibles of her twin brother, Maurice, the failures of her inept brother, Andre, and the charms of her older cousin, Claude-Francois. Womanhood and impending war send tremors through Lili's circumscribed world. Stirred by her cousin's confession of love, she begins a journey that even as it carries her deeper into herself, takes her ever farther from the foundations of her childhood faith. The ravages of World War I - in particular, the fate of Andre and Claude-Francois - test Lili's character and gradually, subtly, reshape it. Lili turns to philosophy for spiritual sustenance and to teaching for subsistence. A new love, a failed marriage, a disabled child, a passionate affair with a Jewish woman whose change of faith parallels Lili's own - time and again, an awakening passion is challenged by a reversal of fortune. Faced with personal adversity and social calamity, Lili explores the mutable nature of faith and searches for its ultimate expression: redemption.

Like so many of her young compatriots, Lili Lin lives on the margins of society–she has been jailed for “having a corrupt lifestyle and hooliganism,” and at 24 she is unemployable because she doesn’t have connections and unmarriageable because she isn’t a virgin. Estranged from her parents, restless and cynical, she drifts from day to day. Then she meets an American journalist infatuated with China, who gradually opens her eyes to what is happening. Together they embark on a journey that will profoundly change Lili’s view of her country and of herself.

Pioneers in their fields and two of the best-known women in music in the twentieth century, Nadia and Lili Boulanger have previously been considered in isolation from one another. Yet, as Caroline Potter's new book demonstrates, their careers were closely linked during Lili Boulanger's short life (1893-1918) and there are several intriguing connections between their musical works. This biography also provides the first full analysis of the Boulanger sisters' musical styles, placing them within the context of French musical history. Their lives are also a case study in the issues of gender which surround music making even to the present day. Despite an unusually privileged upbringing, Nadia and Lili Boulanger exemplify the struggle women experienced when attempting to enter the professional music world. Lili became the first woman to win the Prix de Rome in 1913, and Nadia gained second place in 1908. Yet in spite of this initial success, Nadia Boulanger was to give up composing in her thirties and devoted the remainder of her long life to teaching. Her pupils included several of the great composers of the century, including Aaron Copland and Elliott Carter. This book, focusing on their musical careers, is essential reading for anyone interested in French music of the twentieth century.
Cookie was a magical word for Lili as biscuit was for Miko who, by now, also knew the word cookie as well as biscoito from Grandma. The consensus in the family was that Lili was more associated with beauty and Miko with intelligence.

Who could resist a sweet, playful puppy with beautiful Cleopatra-like eyes in the window of a pet shop? Certainly not author Maria de Andrade, whose life was about to become much more lively and exciting thanks to the addition of a charming and adventurous little Beagle to the family. Memories of Lili is a heart-warming story about the life of Lili, a lovable Beagle with a penchant for running away from home and eating everything and anything she could get her paws on. From early on, Lili’s sweet personality and kind demeanor charmed everyone—and everything—she met. From neighbours (both of the human and animal variety) and family members to complete strangers, everyone Lili encountered on her much-loved outings couldn’t help but adore her. Although Lili liked the company of other dogs, was fascinated by cats and other animals and loved to be around people, her greatest pleasures in life were food, stealing things from her humans (especially food), long walks and excursions, and escaping her yard by any means possible. As if Lili’s escapades weren’t exciting enough, the addition of Miko the Miniature Poodle certainly spiced things up for de Andrade and her family and particularly for Lili. Though very different in their behaviours and personalities, Lili and Miko became accomplices and the best of friends, providing the family with more love, joy and amusement—as well as frustration and heartbreak—than they ever thought possible. If you’ve ever had a dog with a quirky personality that made you question dog behaviour as you know it, then Memories of Lili is for you.

-- Raz... dwa... trzy... Nie wiem, to już Józia głowa - odpowiedziała Korczewska, pochylając się nad szydełkową robótką. - Józio dobrze myśli o nas. Kończę te serwety, bo prezydentowa obiecała mi sprzedać. Raz... dwa... trzy... - liczyła po cichu i tak się zatopiła w robocie, że nie widziała wzburzenia Gałkowskiej, która prędko i niecierpliwie biegała po pokoju; tak niecierpliwie, aż wielka, jasna peleryna, którą miała na ramionach, fruwała za nią, wydęta, i uderzała w twarz młodego chłopaka, siedzącego pod piecem. / - Jańciu! myślże co, przecież jesteś mężczyzną - zawołała przyduszonym głosem, stając przed nim. / - Jestem mężczyzną, to się wie... a zaraz będę myśleć, tylko papierosa wypalę - odpowiedział drwiąco, puszczając jej w oczy kłąb dymu.

An inspirational and moving account of the transformation of the painter Einar Wegener, compiled from Lili's own letters and manuscripts Lili Elbe was, in 1931, the first transsexual to receive a male-to female sex change. This remarkable book – a sensation when first published over eighty years ago – shows Lili (now the subject of a major motion picture The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne) as a trans pioneer who took extraordinary risks to discover and liberate her true identity. It is also a tale of marriage, of love and romance, that provides a fascinating insight to the bohemian society of the 1930s. Lili: A Portrait of the First Sex Change is told through original documents, her personal correspondence, and with contributions from those who loved her most. Available in English as an ebook for the first time, it remains a pertinent and powerful work, acting as a monument to an iconic struggle, and a celebration of her bold and profoundly human journey.

Babcia is happy to share her cabbage, but she needs some potatoes for her pierogi. . . .
