Available Now. Book Description: An extraordinarily rich debut novel, set in India in 1947 at the time of Partition. Although the backdrop is this key event in Indian history, the novel is even more far-reaching, touching on the importance of tolerance, love and family. : The main character is Bilal, a boy determined to protect his dying father from the news of Partition - news that he knows will break his father's heart. With great spirit and determination, and with the help of his good friends, Bilal persuades others to collude with him in this deception, even printing false pages of the local newspaper to hide the ravages of unrest from his father. All that Bilal wants is for his father to die in peace. But that means Bilal has a very complicated relationship with the truth... : Review: 'Another memorable debut novel . . . Beautifully told this debut is set in 1940's India at the time of the Partition, with themes of tolerance that still resonate today' (The Bookseller): 'A challenging but extremely rewarding book dealing with big themes of truth, prejudice, and friendship, but also the simple love of a boy for his father. The Indian setting conjures up a society on the brink of change, rich in period detail and geographical beauty, and the characters are attractive and vividly drawn. A fascinating introduction to a vital moment in history. Though beware - the ending will make you cry' (Daily Mail): 'This is a refreshing first novel, simply and expertly told. A great debut' (Ink Pellet): 'Irfan Master has created a richly detailed portrait of India in 1947 and peopled it with a collection of well realised characters, each of them almost strong enough to merit a novel in their own right' (Guardian) : Book Description: An atmospheric, quirky and moving debut novel, set in India.

Book Description: In Hala El Badry's prize-winning and controversial novel, A Certain Woman, Nahid is a woman searching for liberation, not from a repressive society or a male-dominated world, but from self-imposed taboos that inhibit a woman's ability to find fulfillment. In a narrative much excoriated by conservative critics, Nahid's adulterous affair becomes an occasion to explore the subtleties and contradictions that surround sexuality, desire and love. : Review: "A Certain Woman contributes to the growing body of imaginative literature written by Arab women and translated into English. The translation of this novel is alliterative, poetic and strikingly vivid." --Al Jadid : About the Author: Born in Cairo, Hala El Badry graduated from Cairo University and is now deputy editor-in-chief of Egypt's radio and television magazine.

The events set in motion that summer will span decades and continents and change the Santerres forever. : A rich, full novel about passion and desire, fear and betrayal, A Family Daughter illuminates both the joys and complications of contemporary life, and the relationship between truth and fiction. : Review: 'With its humour, athletic sex and explosive secrets, A FAMILY DAUGHTER is the delinquent offspring of LIARS AND SAINTS, and deserves similar success' (Daily Mail): Book of the month: ' You can't help but be caught up by Meloy's enthralling storytelling which alternates between dramatic narrative swoops and tiny moments of emotional acuity. A truly original piece of work, (it) establishes Meloy as a writer with an imaginative territory as distinctive and finely worked as that of Anne Tyler' (Marie Claire): 'The new book is better than the first, but it's hard to separate them. Ms. Meloy's reflections on truth and fiction are best appreciated when the two novels collide. . . A FAMILY DAUGHTER roams engrossingly from California to Paris to Buenos Aires in ways that make it a big book as well as a swift, slender, graceful one . . . This new book has the deep ramifications of more ambitious fiction' (New York Times): '[Meloy] . . . writes wonderfully well, with an efficiency so lithe it's like watching an athlete' (Guardian): 'A deliciously duplicitous book, a darkly perceptive examination of American mores disguised as a light family romance.' (Sunday Telegraph (Seven)): 'A great weekend read' (Vogue): 'Both compassionate and gripping, A FAMILY DAUGHTER is a wonderful piece of fiction' (Books Quarterly (Waterstone's)) : Book Description: The brilliant second novel from Maile Meloy, following Richard & Judy Summer Read and Orange-shortlisted Liars and Saints Size: 13.1 x 19.7 x 2 cm. 336 pages.

1849233446 / 9781849233446 First Edition Softcover Very Good Condition 15.2 x 2 x 22.9 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: Many of us dream of changing our life but few have done something as bizarre and drastic as moving to the Costa Rican jungle. In 2004, Jo and Crispin Freeman sold their London flat and did just that; with their six month old baby in tow. They purchased 165 acres on the southern Pacific coast near Pavones: sleepy surfer town and brainchild of an infamous convicted drug smuggler. Crispin soon forgets his lawyer background and is blissfully happy zipping around the jungle on his quad bike - crashing occasionally - with his faithful machete by his side. He becomes addicted to buying land, befriends the aptly named Crazy Lenny and the drug smuggler's right-hand man and is incapable of saying 'No' when locals ask him for a loan. Sensible Jo doesn't take to her alien surroundings quite so easily. The wildlife terrifies her (is that a snake under my baby's play-mat?!), the locals bemuse her (you can't really think your daughter's birthmark is due to a lunar eclipse, can you?!) and the fact that it seems their new house will never ever be finished drives her mad (although having the good-looking builder around is quite nice). After horribly losing a horse to tetanus, unknowingly being involved in a wood smuggling operation, and having a disastrous time trying to get the new house ready for imminently arriving friends; Jo eventually realises that maybe the grass is getting greener but she has been too wrapped up in all of the disasters befalling them to notice. 'A Friend Laughs' is the funny and sobering true story of what happened when a young family followed their dream. : Review: 'Humorous account of the highs and lows....fascinating read for anyone who has dreamt of escaping the rat race' --Worcestershire Living, August, 2009: '(Jo) tells the entertaining tale with refreshing honesty': --The Village, June 2009 : From the Author: This latest edition also includes 8 pages of fantastic photos.

Book Description: Distinguished by irony, compassion and the author's own dry wit, these three novels paint a memorable picture of life in the streets, schools and tenements of Glasgow in the 1950s and 60s. : With a unique vision of loneliness, old age, sexual longing, hot young blood and youth's casual cruelty, George Friel's books explore a dark comedy of tangled communication, human need and fading community.: All these elements come together in the humorous parable of greed, religion and slum youth that is The Boy Who Wanted Peace; in the fate of old and disturbed Miss Partridge who is obsessed with the innocence of young Grace; and in the mental collapse of Mr Alfred, a middle-aged schoolteacher who is in love with one of this pupils.

Available Now. Book Description: In A GORGEOUS SENSE OF HOPE a girl finds herself in possession of "a relationship of considerable consequence" that slowly loses its spark. Determined to save her love, she sets out on a love expedition, where she learns that the road to love can be rocky and full of twists and turns, but if we have the courage to stick with it, or perhaps even to forge our own path, it might just lead us to exhilarating heights and astonishing synchronicity in love. Through all the seasons of the heart, this beautifully illustrated book candidly relates the "exquisite bubble" of new love, followed by the perils of "the insidious zone of complacency" where the shower of passion dries up and silence ensues. Finally, the girl realizes that the only guarantee of keeping the love she wants is to create the map for it herself. A GORGEOUS SENSE OF HOPE is a quirky and profound keepsake for new, promising relationships, for tired, troubled relationships, and for anyone who appreciates the fragility of love. It's for everyone who has been in love and those who might be, someday. After all, couldn't everyone use a gorgeous sense of hope? : About the Author: Emma Magenta was born in Sydney, Australia, where she lives today.

Available Now. Book Description: 'The mind is a time machine that travels backwards in memory and forwards in prophecy, but he has done with prophecy now...': Sequestered in his blitz-battered Regent's Park house in 1944, the ailing Herbert George Wells, 'H.G.' to his family and friends, looks back on a life crowded with incident, books, and women. Has it been a success or a failure? Once he was the most famous writer in the world, 'the man who invented tomorrow'; now he feels like yesterday's man, deserted by readers and depressed by the collapse of his utopian dreams.: He recalls his unpromising start, and early struggles to acquire an education and make a living as a teacher; his rapid rise to fame as a writer with a prophetic imagination and a comic common touch which brought him into contact with most of the important literary, intellectual, and political figures of his time; his plunge into socialist politics; his belief in free love, and energetic practice of it. Arguing with himself about his conduct, he relives his relationships with two wives and many mistresses, especially the brilliant student Amber Reeves and the gifted writer Rebecca West, both of whom bore him children, with dramatic and long-lasting consequences.: Unfolding this astonishing story, David Lodge depicts a man as contradictory as he was talented: a socialist who enjoyed his affluence, an acclaimed novelist who turned against the literary novel; a feminist womaniser, sensual yet incurably romantic, irresistible and exasperating by turns, but always vitally human. : Review: "Extraordinarily rich, wide-ranging and hugely entertaining" (Daily Mail): "Pure fun" (Evening Standard): "Excellent" (Guardian): "Mesmerizing...terrifically enjoyable" (Washington Post): "Tremendously funny" (Irish Times) : Book Description: A moving, funny and masterful novel about the life of H.G. Wells - writer, thinker, lover and man of genius. Size: 15.1 x 4 x 23 cm. 576 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; ISBN: 1846556406. ISBN/EAN: 9781846556401. Paperback B206-1061 1.00

Available Now. Book Description: This issue finishes our centenary with a bang. We offer a selection of unpublished poetry and prose by MacDiarmid, unearthed by John Manson, giving new and disturbing insights into the man and his work. A fascinating essay by Franco Loi, translated by Heather Scott, contrasts the poet and the mystic. Iain Crichton Smith's Gaelic writing is on display, as well. Other contributors include Jenni Daiches, David Kinloch, aonghas macneacail and Lydia Robb. William Johnstone, underrated modernist, was a friend and collaborator of MacDiarmid. His abstract interpretations of MacDiarmid make him the perfect artist for this issue. This is the fourth issue in a series of four spanning 752 pages and featuring over 200 writers and artists. : About the Author: Chapman is Scotland s leading literary magazine; controversial, influential, outspoken and intelligent. Founded in 1970, it has become a dynamic force in Scottish culture, covering theatre, politics, language and the arts. Our highly-respected forum for poetry, fiction, criticism, review and debate is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary Scotland. The outstanding feature of the magazine is its consistency of quality, combined with originality in the range of material it publishes. The magazine has played a small, but significant role in shaping the Scotland we now enjoy. When the magazine was founded, there was almost no interest in Scottish literature anywhere most conspicuously in Scotland. Nearly all of our best writers were unknown names even at home, languishing without a publisher or magazine publication. There seemed no prospect of any decent literary infrastructure or a way to stem, for example, the strong tide flowing against our indigenous languages, Scots and Gaelic, which were generally derided as inherently inferior, even primitive. Chapman has helped to change that all that by being bold and interventionist. Increasing numbers of the public are now keenly grasping the potential of these languages and of Scottish culture in general, as a natural way of enriching their lives. Chapman publishes the best in Scottish writing new work by well-known Scottish writers in the context of lucid critical discussion. With our commitment to the future, we energetically promote new writers, new ideas and approaches. Several issues have been landmarks in their field in Scots language, women's writing and cultural politics in Scotland. We have published extensive features on important writers: Hugh MacDiarmid, Hamish Henderson, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Tom Scott, Naomi Mitchison, Edwin and Willa Muir and Alasdair Gray and others, to the benefit of their reputation and status. We also publish poetry and short fiction from new writers, as well as critical articles and items of general cultural interest. Most issues feature Scots and Gaelic as well as English. The focus is on Scotland, but Chapman has a long history of publishing international literature, both in English by non-Scots and in translation from other languages. The list of countries published over the years is too long to cite here, but it spans the entire globe. Chapman will undoubtedly interest anyone researching Scottish and/or British literature. It has a natural outlet in universities and institutions of secondary education. With its emphasis on new creative writing, it is useful to anyone with a love of literature. You can help our work by subscribing, or even ordering a single copy of the magazine, or one of our books. It helps us and the writers we publish while giving the reader a great deal to enjoy.

Available Now. Book Description: Erneste works in a grand hotel in Switzerland. He is the 'perfect waiter', a model of order in every way. But inwardly this polite, withdrawn man has been caught in the grip of an overwhelming passion that began in the summer of 1935 with Jakob, a fellow waiter. For Jakob the affair is just a fling, but for Erneste it is true love. When the great German writer Julius Klinger arrives at the hotel, seeking sanctuary from Hitler's Germany, his gaze, too, lights on Jakob. One morning, three decades later, Erneste receives a letter with a US postmark from Jakob asking for help. It is a call that forces Erneste to engage with the world again and risk discovering the truth behind his memories of the great love of his youth. Shifting skilfully between two eras, Sulzer's tense, moving and elegantly written novel is a small masterpiece about the joy and pain of love. : Review: 'A beautifully written and quietly devastating novel' Attitude 'The real perfect waiter of the title is, I suspect, the author himself. Like his hero, he is unobtrusive and alarming in equal measure ... he does his job not just with great polish, but with real heart' Guardian 'Sulzer carefully walks a tightrope between the tender and the erotic ... A melancholy, shocking tale' Irish Times 'It tells a compelling love story between two men both working in a grand hotel in the 1930s ... This is elegant writing, perfectly pitched to reflect the sadness and regret attendant on such a liaison' Rodney Troubridge, Booksellers' Choice, Bookseller : About the Author: Alain Claude Sulzer was born in Basel in 1953. His first novel was published in 1983 and he has since written four further novels, including Annas Maske (2001) and numerous short stories. A Perfect Waiter is his first novel to be published in English. He lives in Alsace. John Brownjohn is one of Britain's leading German translators and has won critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic including for 'My Wounded Heart': The Life of LIlli Jahn 1900-44 by Martin Doerry (Bloomsbury, 2004).

The break-up of a marriage and the effect this has on four children is told largely from the darkly humorous perspective - of fifteen-year-old Ruth, who is desperate to escape the strictures of family life and pursue her own fantasy-fuelled quest for love. To every story there are many suedes, and the reader soon leaves Ruth behind to venture further into the heart of the disintegrating relationship and to explore the suppressed and unresolved emotions of the family in the neighbouring farmhouse, who are trying to come to terms with a very different tragedy. Set in the remote Northumbrian countryside, Jane Feaver's novel offers a profound insight on love, disappointment and loss, and on grief and grieving. Beautifully crafted, According to Ruth delicately reveals how lives can overlap and impinge on one another through proximity, suggestion and resemblance - real or imagined - and how secrets and lies eventually work their way to the surface.? Book - in Fine [much better than Very Good] maroon boards with gilt lettering. Contents, clean, bright and tightly bound. Dust Jacket - Near Fine [better than Very Good] - a touch rubbed to the extreme corners and light marking to the verso to the bottom of the spine.

2012 0007429479 / 9780007429479 First Edition Softcover New 15.3 x 2.1 x 23.4 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: An ambitious and compelling first novel about a key moment in Irish history.: November 1917. With tensions in Ireland, war in Europe and revolution in Russia, Victor Lennon returns to his home village after a long exile. Radicalised by his experiences in the Dublin Lockout and Easter Rising, Victor is a hero to many but a danger to some.: Those closest to Victor know his true nature: his father, Pius, now drinking himself to death; his oldest friend, Charlie, wounded in the trenches; and the love of his life, Maggie, who he left behind years before. But soon Victor and the fearsome parish priest, Stanislaus Benedict, are on a collision course, with the very souls of the people caught between religion and socialism.: Told from the perspectives of these two equally strong-willed characters, After the Lockout is a first novel of tremendous ambition and achievement. At its heart is a conflict emblematic of a recurring faultline in Irish history, and of one more eternal and universal: between hope and experience; between ideals and human weakness. : Review: 'A wonderful novel about what history has done to Ireland, and what Ireland has done to history. The triumph is that it is not only deeply intelligent and self-aware, but also entertaining from the first page to the last.' Hilary Mantel: 'With this one novel Darran McCann succeeds where many writers over an entire career fail, laying claim to a terrain entirely his own. Spread the word, Darran McCann has arrived.' Glenn Patterson: "Darran McCann drags Irish history out of the door by the hair. For the first time we see the Catholic church being taken on, not with a rear-view smugness but where it matters in an Ireland where power is changing hands. This is a compelling story of a people attempting to liberate themselves from authority." Hugo Hamilton: 'After The Lockout is a wholly original, vigorous and insightful piece of writing. It recreates an era and its exigencies with robustness and aplomb' Patricia Craig, TLS: 'That's probably the most important virtue of After the Lockout : it has an enemy in its sights and it goes for that enemy, though without becoming shrill or impugning the humanity of the clerical characters. Not enough first books have attitude, but this one definitely does, and that's rather wonderful.' Irish Times: 'After The Lockout is a good read' Sunday Business Post: 'A gem ... will have you thinking even more about rights and wrongs in Irish history' Sunday Sport : About the Author: Darran McCann was born in Co. Armagh in 1979. He graduated from Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University before becoming a journalist with Belfast's Irish News. He went on to write, teach and study at Queen's University Belfast. His play, Confession, was produced at the Brian Friel Theatre in Belfast in 2008. He lives in Ireland with his family.

279 Pages. Foredges of the page are slightly marked. When part 1 of Cancer Ward was published last autumn, its importance was immediately recognised and it became a best-seller. With the publication of part 2 the full scope and stature of the novel become clear. The action begins five weeks after the end of part 1. Book Description: One of the great allegorical masterpieces of world literature, Cancer Ward is both a deeply compassionate study of people facing terminal illness and a brilliant dissection of the 'cancerous' Soviet police state. Withdrawn from publication in Russia in 1964, it became, along with One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, a work that awoke the conscience of the world. As Robert Service wrote of its appeal in the Independent, 'In waging his struggle against Soviet communism, Solzhenitsyn the novelist preferred the rapier to the cudgel'.: Review: "Solzhenitsyn is a man of genius...it is a privilege to be Solzhenitsyn's contemporary" (Observer): "There has been no such analysis of the corrupting power of the police state in Soviet literature" (Listener): "He is one of the towering figures of the age, as writer, as moralist, as hero" (Edward Cranshaw) : Book Description: 'Without a doubt the greatest Russian novelist' Sunday Times 288 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: Soho 1925 Two young men meet for one of them this is love at first sight, for the other only lust and guilt... In 1925 Paul Harris returns to England from self-imposed exile in Tangiers for an exhibition of his paintings. He leaves behind Patrick, the man he has loved since they met in the trenches in 1918, needing to discover if he has the strength to live without him and wanting to explore the kind of life he might have lived had it not been for the war. In Bohemian Soho, Paul meets Edmund whose passionate love changes Paul s idea of himself. With Edmund, Paul begins to believe that he may have another life to live, free of the guilt and regrets of the past. But the past is not so easy to escape, and when Patrick follows Paul to London a decision must be made that will affect all their lives. : Review: A superbly written book, this is a poignant and very readable novel. The rich, colourful and complex characters bring this story of homosexuality in post-First World War Britain to life. It is the second in a trilogy, the first being The Boy I Love and the third Paper Moon. The story is well researched and has lots of detail and emotion. It moves on at a cracking pace and keeps the reader's interest so much that it could easily be read in one or two sessions. The themes are dealt with sensitively, and plotlines are juggled well. The story of Paul Harris develops as he returns from Tangiers, where he has been living with Patrick, his sergeant in the war. Unsure whether he has made the correct decision, he has returned to London to show his paintings in an art gallery. He is an ex-convict and, if his homosexuality is exposed, he will be in danger. Other characters interweave with Paul: Edmund, whom he is drawn to; Lawrence, the gallery owner; Ann, the artist's model; Matthew, with his many years in hospital; and Joseph, who is a love rival for Ann. With beautifully written multiple narratives, the characters deal with their changed lives in the years after the First World War. Twists and turns along the way make the book a compelling read. It keeps its reader's attention and is difficult to put down once started: an excellent book which does not shy away from the realities of life. Although it is part of a trilogy, it reads just as well as a standalone novel and will have the reader searching out the other two books. -- Lucienne Boyce Historical Novel Society "The story is well researched and has lots of detail and emotion. It moves on at a cracking pace and keeps the reader's interest so much that it could easily be read in one or two sessions." -- Barbara Goldie Historical Review Society : About the Author: Marion Husband is a compassionate and compelling writer exploring the complexities of human nature with great empathy. Her debut novel The Boy I Love, the first in the three part The Boy I Love Trilogy, won the Andrea Badenoch Fiction Award and The Blackwell Prize. Her other novels include The Good Father and Say You Love Me. She is married with two grown-up children and teaches creative writing. Size: 12.7 x 2.2 x 17.8 cm. 288 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
