Missouri college to do two readings of “Tower Stories” to commemorate September 11th

On 08, Jun 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

East Central College of Union, Missouri will host two nights of readings from my book Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 as part of their commermoration of 9/11, this coming September.

Publishers Weekly called Tower Stories:

“. . . monumental . . . In the weeks following the World Trade Center attack, DiMarco, in the tradition of Studs Terkel, wandered Manhattan collecting the stories of Gothamites who survived the collapse of the towers, came to help or simply bore witness-whether from elsewhere in the city, across the country or overseas . . . DiMarco’s contribution to the memory of that horrific day is enormous; the testimonies collected here form an amazing, one-of-a-kind account.” 

Library Journal called Tower Stories:

“…unique, a multitude of firsthand experiences preserved as few other 9/11 books have done. This second edition is expanded with many more photographs and with updates about a number of the witnesses interviewed. Recommended for all public and undergraduate libraries.”

Interested in doing a reading event at your theater, college or university, or civic group? All public readings of material from Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11  are subject to a performance royalty, as well as certain contracual agreements and restrictions. Please e-mail info@towerstories.org or mail@damondimarco.com to request a Royalty Application.

My Review of “Red Alert: How China’s Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life”

On 07, Jun 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Hachette Book Group recenly approached me to read and comment on its forthcoming book by bestselling author Stehen Leeb with Greg Dorsey. 

“Red Alert: How China’s Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life” is a compelling read, and I urge you to order it at once if you have any interest in China or global politics. You won’t find a more cogent breakdown of the issues facing the current and forthcoming synchronization of East and West. Or, as I say in my review blurb:

“You don’t need a crystal ball to see the future, you need this book. RED ALERT lives up to its title. Those who read it and heed the call will know how to prosper in the not-so distant future.”

Damon DiMarco, author of Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 and co-author of My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with Baiqiao Tang.

“My Two Chinas”: Canadian reviewer calls it “mesmerizing and important”

On 10, May 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

On May 7, 2011, Yvonne Crittenden of the Sudbury Star writes:

“This is the story of a very brave man. Baiqiao Tang is one of the best known young Chinese dissidents whose hopes for democracy in China were dashed after the massacre at Tiananmen Square in 1989. In this gripping and poignant story of his life in China and eventual escape to safety in the west, Tang shows how a brilliant, dedicated young student was instilled with a desire to bring human rights to his country. Tang’s name became legendary in the pro-democracy movement in China. He was imprisoned in a notorious jail in the crackdown after Tiananmen Square. He describes the horrendous treatment meted out by brutal guards who tortured, starved and routinely beat prisoners. Paroled, he now lives in New York City and carries the banner for his cause in exile. A mesmerizing and Read more…

“My Two Chinas” wins excellent Publishers Weekly review

On 11, Apr 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Publishers Weekly, abbreviated PW, is an American weekly trade news magazine targeted at publishers, librarians, booksellers and literary agents. Published continuously for the past 138 years, it has carried the tagline, “The International News Magazine of Book Publishing and Bookselling.” With 51 issues a year, the emphasis today is on book reviews.

First published in 1872, the magazine began as The Publishers’ Weekly (with an apostrophe), a collective catalog for publishers to pool their resources. That listing of books enabled booksellers to learn about forthcoming titles, and eventually the publication expanded to include features and articles.

They’ve written a glowing review of my latest book, “My Two Chinas.”

My review of “Death by China – A Global Call to Action”

On 01, Apr 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

My friend Greg Autry asked me to read and comment on his forthcoming book with Peter Navarro. “Deaty by China – A Global Call to Action” is a stunning read, and I urge you to order it at once if you have any interest in China or global politics. You won’t find a more cogent breakdown of the issues facing the current and forthcoming synchronization of East and West. Or, as I say in my review blurb:

“Be forewarned: once you start reading, you won’t want to stop. Death by China lays bare the pivotal, oft overlooked, and sometimes blatantly hidden moves in a massive global chess game. Navarro and Autry have winded the horn, calling the free world to act on behalf of its interests and future. Impressively, they call China as well.”
 
Damon DiMarco, author of Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 and co-author of My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with Baiqiao Tang.
