".lovingly and fanatically and even beautifully about a place.Ghosh has created a large, colorful story and a voluptuous world into which we gratefully disappear." O, - The Oprah Magazine. "The Hungry Tide is a great swirl of political, social, and environmental issures, presented through a story that's full of romance, suspense, and poetry." - The Washington Post~~Amitav Ghosh was born in Calcutta and grew up in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India. He studied at the universities of Delhi and Oxford, has taught at a number of institutions and written for many magazines.

Between these covers you will find eleven stories that stand as a testament to the upsurge of talented African writers boldly utilising the cutting edge of technology and the writing craft to be read globally. Spanning Africa and the African Diaspora in past, present and future, each story has a fresh and diverse vision that opens up new vistas of experience. From the lucid terrors of domestic violence through the eyes of a child, and the anguish of those left behind by a fleeing Diaspora, to a full circle, when the prey becomes the hunter and has the opportunity for revenge, and a dryly humourous look at what it's like to lose a quarter of your brain, to name just a few of the treasures that lie within~~~~~~158 N25618192A~~~~~~Francisco Antonio Seguin is an author and screenwriter. He lives in Australia on a healthy dose of 80's culture and 90's cyberpunk, with an eclectic penchant for dark stories of a sub-cultural context to action-adventure epics. AV EROTICA is his debut novel. Francisco has five other novels currently in development including HOOD, CULTURE SUB-CULTURE, REVELATIONS, CANDYLAND and CAIN'S PORTRAIT.~~178 N25618193A~~So I was turned off a suitor when I saw his shoes. Despite the Arab warrior preference, I didn’t really care about looks. But I had a general rule: if the suitor came in wearing shoes with tassels, a leather jacket circa 1982, and/or a moustache, the doorknock appeal would fail from the outset. A girl has to have some standards, right?” It may be the 21st century, but who says courtship is obsolete. Coming from a (not-quite- traditional) Muslim family, 27-year-old Samira Abdel-Aziz knows all about it. But as an assistant at Bridal Bazaar magazine, she's pretty sick of all things wedding-related. Surely there’s more to life than suitors and marriage. Then Samira unwittingly becomes wedding gofer for her cousin/nemesis Zahra and her life begins to resemble a Spanish soap opera – minus the skimpy clothing and the bitch-slaps. This story is a light-hearted but honest peek into the life of a young, single Muslim woman living in Sydney – the joys of a blossoming romance (all very proper), the courtship rituals (so Jane Austen), the struggle with career and, of course, Arab Guilt.~~~~~~370 N25618194A~~After serving twenty-seven years in an Indiana prison for killing two people in a drunken rage, tough, brooding ex-convict Socrates Fortlow lives in a tiny apartment in an abandoned building in Watts, struggling to make sense of the anarchic violence in the world and in himself.~~"Mournful, insightful, and mystical. It is also Mosley's best work of fiction."-Elle. "A wonderful book.with characters who seem as real as the reader."-Denver Post.

Philadelphia Inquirer Touching..By the book's exhilaratingly luminous ending.we have already been mesmerized.

Once you read this story, it will be with you forever - this place amd these people will live in your heart and in the blood it pumps.

Among the cast of DeLillo's bizarre yet fully realized characters in The Names are Kathryn, the narrator's estranged wife; their son, the six-year-old novelist; Owen, the scientist; and the neurotic narrator obsessed with his own neuroses. A thriller, a mystery, and still a moving examination of family, loss, and the amorphous and magical potential of language itself, The Names stands with any of DeLillo's more recent and highly acclaimed works.
