📒Brighton Beach by Mark Girshin
Brighton Beach Summary : The Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn is populated by what might be called "external emigrants", the people who in emigrating have changed nothing about their lives but their location. Brighton Beach, the novel about this Jewish immigrant community, is a satiric look at this island of Russian life in New York City. Levine, a well-known Odessa writer, arrives in New York and peddles his single book stories under several titles. There is also Pishonik, who runs the second-hand store and has a thriving under-the-counter business in stolen jewelry, just as in Odessa he'd dealt in produce. A taxi driver who sells drugs on the side and dreams of opening a luncheonette. Seva, who works odd jobs and dreams of buying a taxi. There's even a schoolboy with his own get-rich-quick mail-order scam. The intellectuals: Volodya, sets about beginning a new, healthier life as a housepainter; Aaron, who was a teacher in Odessa, opens a leather-goods factory and tries to run it, but thwarted at every turn. Marat, a would-be writer and too naïve to understand the venality which surrounds him, eventually gives the writer Levine his comeuppance. Faya, Seva's wife, hunts the stairwells in their apartment building in search of Volodya and a more genteel life. Beba and Mina, sisters long to be free of their tyrannical father. There is the Organization of Aid Emigrants, under the direction of the kindly and unsuspecting American Mrs. Welch, and run by emigrants. And throughout the book there is a chorus of emigrants strolling on the broadwalk, lining up for free eyeglasses or cheap apartments, and sending pictures, presents and boastful letters home to their Odessa relative about how good life is in America, This novel gives the reader a colorful picture of this thriving community on the sultry summer streets of Brooklyn.
📒Brighton by Albin Wagner
Brighton Summary : The town of Brighton was founded by railroad man and real estate developer Daniel F. Carmichael at the junction of the Denver Pacific (now Union Pacific) and Denver and Boulder Valley Railroads. Carmichael determined, "There should be a town here that would do credit to the splendid valley." The junction, originally named Hughes after the first president of the Denver Pacific Railroad, had a long history as a crossroads of the West. The town grew into an agricultural center for the Platte River Valley with a thriving sugar beet industry, dairies, and canning factories, but the changing economy would transform Brighton first into a suburban community and now into one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States.
📒Build A Bonfire by Paul Hodson
Build a Bonfire Summary : How would you feel if your football club was bought by a businessman who saw your ground as real estate? And what if your ground was demolished leaving you with nowhere to play next season? Many fans believe that when Bill Archer, a Blackburn-based entrepreneur, bought Brighton and Hove Albion, he had no passion for the club or the game but rather saw an opportunity to make a profit. If so, he made the fatal mistake of misjudging football fans. In July 1995, Brighton's local daily paper led its front page with the headline 'Seagulls Migrate', announcing that the Goldstone Ground was to be sold to a property developer for £7.4 million and that 'home' games were to be played at Portsmouth. All this without one word of consultation with the fans. What followed was the biggest campaign in the history of football to save a club. Drawing on dozens of interviews with people directly involved - the fans, the FA, the players and the management - Build a Bonfire dramatically traces the progress of the two-year fight with the board: two years of despair, absurdity and solidarity. In so doing, the book not only explores implications for other clubs, in a world where the battle lines between football and money are being drawn ever tighter, but also creates a picture of that strange and wonderful thing: the football fan. And having lived through the crisis and listened to the fans, the authors can offer their Ten Essential Steps to Depose your Club Chairman, should the need arise . . .
📒Brighton And Hove by Janet Cameron

Murderers, poachers, thieves, pickpockets and vagabonds all went about their business with impunity.

Read about the notorious railway murderer, Percy Lefroy, who appeared at his trial in full evening dress and went to the gallows in an old brown suit. Gasp at the audacity of a temptress who fell in love with a doctor and tried to poison his wife, with strychnine laced chocolate. Then there's little Emily, a girl who received imprisonment with hard labour for stealing a few tempting pieces of gingerbread while a gaggle of disruptive young women loved causing a riot, flirting with men and smashing windows. It was madness and mayhem in those weird and wonderful times - and it's brought vividly to life by Janet Cameron in Brighton and Hove - Murder and Misdemeanours.
