Drawing on never-before-seen material, this definitive biography exposes the true extent of the Jackson family's dysfunctionality -- evidence of which is still in the public eye as they dispute the star's will Jackson was the most talented, richest, and most famous pop star on the planet. But the outpouring of emotion that followed his loss was bittersweet. Dogged by scandal for over fifteen years, and undone by his own tendency to trust the wrong people, Jackson had become untouchable in many quarters, a fact that wounded him deeply. Now, drawing on unprecedented access to friends, enemies, employees, and associates of Jackson, Randall Sullivan delivers an intimate, unflinching, and deeply human portrait of a man who was never quite understood by the media, his fans, or even those closest to him. Untouchable promises to be a profound investigation into the enigma that was Michael Jackson.
Are you tired of the doctrine that says Christians must struggle against the world, the flesh, and the devil? What if I told you that you could become totally untouchable by the enemy? With these questions, Pastor Chris Harrison begins a journey that takes the reader from living in fear and condemnation, constantly harassed by Satan, to a place of love, acceptance, and confidence in the grace of God. Follow along as Pastor Harrison presents biblical proof that believers aren’t supposed to battle the devil but are called by God to live securely in grace, shielded and untouchable.
Mulk Raj Anand's extraordinarily powerful story of an Untouchable in India's caste system, with a new introduction by Ramachandra Guha, author of Gandhi Bakha is a proud and attractive young man, yet none the less he is an Untouchable - an outcast in India's caste system. It is a system that is even now only slowly changing and was then as cruel and debilitating as that of apartheid. Into this vivid re-creation of one day in the life of Bakha, sweeper and toilet-cleaner, Anand pours a vitality, fire and richness of detail that earn his place as one of the twentieth century's most important Indian writers. 'One of the most eloquent and imaginative works to deal with this difficult and emotive subject' Martin Seymour-Smith 'It recalled to me very vividly the occasions I have walked 'the wrong way' in an Indian city, and it is a way down which no novelist has yet taken me' E. M. Forster
"A dishy Michael Jackson biography that makes the exhaustively covered King of Pop fascinating all over again."—People “The first deep-dive narrative by a veteran journalist covering the King of Pop’s convoluted final years on earth . . . [Untouchable] helps cast Jackson in a new light.”—Los Angeles Times “A tale of family, fame, lost childhood, and startling accusations never heard before.”—ABC Nightline Untouchable portrays Michael Jackson’s life and death in unprecedented depth. Beginning with his last departure from Neverland, Sullivan captures Jackson's final years shuttling around the world, and plans to recapture his wealth and reputation with a comeback album and planned series of fifty mega-concerts. Sullivan delves deep into Jackson’s past, depicting a man both naive and deeply cunning, a devoted father whose parenting decisions created international outcry, a shrewd businessman whose failures nearly brought down a megacorporation, and an inveterate narcissist who desperately wanted a quiet, normal life. Sullivan has never-before-reported information about Jackson’s business dealings, the pedophilia allegations that besmirched his reputation, and the fate of his billion-dollar-plus estate, and exclusive access to inner-circle figures including Jackson’s former attorneys and managers. Untouchable is a remarkable portrait of the man who still reigns as King of Pop.
Nearly 16% of India’s population – or over 100 million people – are untouchables. Most of them, despite decades of government efforts to improve their economic and social position, remain desperately poor, illiterate, subject to brutal discrimination and economic exploitation, and with no prospect for improvement of their condition. This is the autobiography, first published in 1979, of Muli, a 40-year-old untouchable of the Bauri caste, living in the Indian state of Orissa, as told to an American anthropologist. Muli is a narrator who combines rich descriptions of daily life with perceptive observations of his social surroundings. He describes with absorbing detail what it is like to be at the bottom of Indian life, and what happens when an untouchable attempts to break out of his accepted role.
From Dickens and Dostoyevsky through to Capote and Norman Mailer, great authors have wrestled with the criminal mind; and now Jacob Miller, one of the best new authors in America, puts his pen to this task in a work that is both riveting and engrossing. Can anything get through to the criminal sociopath, or is he truly “untouchable?” Follow the life of Frankie Moreno from his earliest encounters with death in La Perla, Old San Juan in the late 1940’s, to his childhood experiences as a victim in El Barrio, East Harlem, New York, to his own early criminal activities, his gradual rising through the ranks and his eventual arrival as the leader of the Untouchables, one of the most feared Latino street gangs in Harlem. From that point the story follows Frankie as he manipulates a position for himself as an associate of the Pleasant Street Mob, under the leadership of the Godfather of one of the Five Families, Thomas Lucchese, then follows Frankie’s increasing activities with the Mafia as a major drug dealer intimately involved with the French Connection, to the Pizza Connection and finally, to the Columbian Connection. Finally the story shows Frankie breaking out and starting his own “family” by reviving the Untouchables but now structuring his operation after the Mafia. Along the way, Frankie serves hard time in maximum security prisons, commits gruesome murders and runs every racket under the sun. It is only after his own narcotics addiction brings him down that Miller leads us to Frankie’s compelling conclusion—how after Frankie’s multiple failed attempts to conquer his addiction, finally, late in life, he becomes a Jehovah’s Witness, ultimately conquering his addiction to drugs and shedding blood. This remarkable and tensely exciting tale of unspeakable horror will leave the reader as unnerved and invigorated as the Godfather movies and Carlito’s Way.
