Zoya Phan was born in the remote jungles of Burma, to the Karen ethnic group. For decades the Karen have been under attack from Burma's military junta; Zoya's mother was a guerrilla soldier, her father a freedom activist. She lived in a bamboo hut on stilts by the Moei River; she hunted for edible fungi with her much-loved adopted brother, Say Say. Many Karen are Christian or Buddhist, but Zoya's parents were animist, venerating the spirits of forest, river and moon. Her early years were blissfully removed from the war. At the age of fourteen, however, Zoya's childhood was shattered as the Burmese army attacked. With their house in flames, Zoya and her family fled. So began two terrible years of running from guns, as Zoya joined thousands of refugees hiding in the jungle. Her family scattered, Zoya sought sanctuary across the border in a Thai refugee camp. Conditions in the camp were difficult, and Zoya now had to care for her ailing mother. Zoya, a gifted pupil, was eventually able to escape, first to Bangkok and then, with her enemies still pursuing her, in 2004 she fled to the UK and claimed asylum. The following year, at a 'free Burma' march, she was plucked from the crowd to appear on the BBC, the first of countless interviews with the world's media. She became the face of a nation enslaved, rubbing shoulders with presidents and film stars. By turns uplifting, tragic and entirely gripping, this is the extraordinary true story of the girl from the jungle who became an icon of a suffering land.

"13 % aller männlichen Amerikaner könnten ihr Vater sein." Das sagte Steve Jobs dem Time Magazine über seine Tochter Lisa. Für die Öffentlichkeit war er da schon ein Halbgott. Was bedeutete es für sie, so einen Vater zu haben? Zumal er lange nichts von ihr wissen wollte? Lisa Brennan-Jobs hat sich lange Zeit gelassen, dieses Buch zu schreiben, und anders als von vielen erhofft, ist es keine Abrechnung mit dem Apple-Guru geworden, sondern ein kluges und berührendes literarisches Memoir. Lisa war das Ergebnis einer schon im Ansatz gescheiterten Liebe. Als die Studentin Chrisann Brennan schwanger wurde, hatte Steve Jobs hatte gerade das College geschmissen und schraubte in der berühmten Garage im Silicon Valley komische Kästen zusammen. Chrisann wollte Künstlerin werden und verließ den "Nerd" Steve, obwohl sie sein Kind erwartete. Diese Kränkung sollte er ihr - und auch Lisa - lange nicht verzeihen. Der Apple-Gründer bestritt die Vaterschaft, nannte aber gleichzeitig wohl einen seiner Computer nach ihr. Und das kleine Mädchen erlebte eine Kindheit der Extreme: Da war einerseits ihre Hippie-Mutter, die nicht einmal genug Geld für ein Sofa hatte, und andrerseits eben einer der reichsten und berühmtesten Männer der Welt … Herzzerreißend und komisch – eine Kindheit, die man so nie erfinden könnte.
