  • 14 November 2018
cover image"Migration comes in unlimited shades of colour where we straddle between physical, emotional, and spiritual boundaries within ourselves-and within our worlds and beyond...Who are the shades within us? We are called immigrants, locals, explorers, natives, settlers, pioneers, discoverers, newcomers, drifters, tenants, transients, nomads, expatriates, wanderers, evacuees, refugees, pilgrims, aliens, foreigners, squatters, visitors, intruders, conquerors, asylum seekers, urbanites, outsiders ... Take a journey with twenty-one speculative fiction authors through fractured borders and open frontiers, and break the monolith of our assumptions about migrants and "others." Stories that transcend borders, generations, and culture-always captivating and relatable. In the end, we get a glimpse into our human need in face of change-realized or lost-to hold fast to home, tradition, family, and the places in which we find them. And no matter how difficult or challenging lives can be-the human spirit will triumph in the end as all emotions are universal: we born, we dream, we strive, we die. Introduction by Eric Choi and Gillian Clinton. In addition to dealing with migrations, immigrants, and anti-discrimination, the book also deals with mental health and mental illness. There is an appendix in the book for Mental Health Resources and another appendix for Anti-Discrimination Resources."-- Provided by publisher.

Eveningland : stories [sound recording (CD)] / Michael Knight.

  • 14 November 2018
cover imageLong considered a master of the form and an essential voice in American fiction, Michael Knight's stories have been lauded by writers such Ann Patchett, Elizabeth Gilbert, Barry Hannah, and Richard Bausch. Now, with Eveningland he returns to the form that launched his career, delivering an arresting collection of interlinked stories set among the "right kind of Mobile family" in the years preceding a devastating hurricane. Grappling with dramas both epic and personal, from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill to the "unspeakable misgivings of contentment," Eveningland captures with crystalline poeticism and perfect authenticity of place the ways in which ordinary life astounds us with its complexity. A teenaged girl with a taste for violence holds a burglar hostage in her house on New Year's Eve; a middle aged couple examines the intricacies of their marriage as they prepare to throw a party; and a real estate mogul in the throes of grief buys up all the property on an island only to be accused of madness by his daughters. These stories, told with economy and precision, infused with humor and pathos, excavate brilliantly the latent desires and motivations that drive life forward.

The long journey is interrupted from time to time by station stops for the public to pay its respects, and for various marching bands to serenade the departed with his favorite ballad, "After the Ball."

In 1921, two young Americans meet in Verdun, the city in France where one of the most devastating battles of the war was waged. Tom is an orphan from Chicago, a former ambulance driver now gathering bones from the battlefield; Sarah is an expatriate from Boston searching for the husband who wandered off from his division and hasn't been seen since. Quickly, the two fall into a complicated affair against the ghostly backdrop of the ruined city. Months later, Sarah and Tom meet again at the psychiatric ward of an Italian hospital, drawn there by the appearance of a mysterious patient the doctors call Douglas Fairbanks (after the silent film actor)--a shell-shocked soldier with no memory of who he is. At the hospital, Tom and Sarah are joined by Paul, an Austrian journalist with his own interest in the amnesiac. Each is keeping a secret; each has been shaken by the horrors of war. Decades later, Tom, now a successful screenwriter, encounters Paul by chance in LA, still grappling with the questions raised by this gorgeous and incisive novel: How to begin again after unfathomable trauma? How to love after so much loss? And who, in the end, was Douglas Fairbanks?

Priscilla confides to Elizabeth that she had understood Endicott was wealthy in his own right, and she had brought a sizeable fortune to the marriage as well. Now her banker is telling her she has hardly any money left and that her house has been mortgaged. The banker has hinted at a scandal that could damage the family's reputation and her daughters' future prospects. Fearing destructive gossip, Priscilla doesn't know whom to trust. Elizabeth discovers some unsavory evidence that seems to point to the possibility that Endicott's death may have been connected to blackmail. To save her new friend's future, Elizabeth must use her special set of skills to find the truth"-- Provided by publisher.

Let her fly : a father's journey / Ziauddin Yousafzai with Louise Carpenter ; foreword by Malala Yousafzai.

  • 14 November 2018
cover image"A moving and inspirational story with a deeply personal look into the Yousafzai family, "Let her fly" traces Ziauddin Yousafzai's life journey. From an unconfident, stammering little boy living in a mud house in a mountainous region of Pakistan to a man who has broken with regressive social norms, Yousafzai has proven that there are many faces of feminism. As an educator, a family man, and an activist, Yousafzai has championed positive changes in all aspects of his life, be it empowering his daughter, Malala, to be a global leader, fighting for girls' education around the world, or teaching his sons the value of equality. With humor and sincerity, Yousafzai describes his life in Pakistan before the Talibanization of the Swat Valley; through scenes of his sons, Khusal and Atal, flying kites on the roof of their home; to his progressive partnership with his wife, Toor Pekai, and their challenge of raising children in an unfamiliar country. After Malala was shot by the Taliban, the Yousafzai family was completely uprooted from Pakistan and forced to start over in the United Kingdom. Now Yousafzai expresses the complex pain and joy of his return, six years later, to his beautiful homeland. "Let her fly" is an intimate family portrait by the father of one of the most remarkable leaders in the world today. For the first time, readers will learn how an ordinary man from rural Pakistan started a school with the express mission to educate young women for a bright future and became an activist and a global leader in his own right. Ziauddin and Toor Pekai have set a singular example for parents who hope to empower their children to make a difference. "Let her fly" will resonate with anyone who has ever cared for a child as Ziauddin Yousafzai shares what he's learned from his children and what he hopes to teach the world"--Dust jacket.

After the peace / Fay Weldon.

  • 14 November 2018
cover imageHow many parents does it take to make a baby? In the case of Rosalind Melrose Smithson it took four: one birth mother; one legal father; one interfering neighbour and one turkey baster filled with the defrosted essence of an anonymous donor. Or not so anonymous as it turned out. For donor no. 116349, '6ft 1in, blue eyes, blond hair, BA (Oxon), action man, aristocrat' is the ninth Earl of Dilberne, who gave his seed back in 1979 as a stripling of twenty-two, and has now conceived a daughter - unknowingly - at the riper age of forty-two. As they say, the truth will out. And what will our Rozzie do when she finds out about dear old dad? All we know is that as a true Millennial, she will not take it lying down... Sharp, insightful and full of Weldon's trademark wit, this is a tale of family life, genetics and class that reflects the way we live our lives now.

Comemadre / Roque Larraquy ; translated by Heather Cleary.

  • 14 November 2018
cover image"1907: In a sanatorium in Temperley, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, Doctor Quintana falls in love with Menéndez, the head nurse--of whom he knows almost nothing, not even her first name. Motivated by this love--which he shares with his colleagues--by money, and by the promise of transcendence, he carries out a cruel and misguided experiment that investigates the threshold between life and death. The premise is that a human head stays alive and conscious for nine seconds after being severed from the body. 2009: A celebrated artist and ex-child prodigy decides to "bring the monster alive," converting his own body, and the bodies of those he loves, into art objects. The halves of the book are held together by a shared interest in the human pursuit of transcendence through bodily intervention, first as it relates to the scientific or pseudo-medical and the positivism that marked the beginning of the twentieth century, then by way of a radical and absurd artistic vision." -- Provided by publisher.
