  • Deacon king kong

    James Mcbride

    ' Deacon King Kong is deeply felt, beautifully written and profoundly humane; McBride's ability to inhabit his characters' foibled, all-too-human interiority helps transform a fine book into a great one' The New York Times Book Review 'A hilarious, pitch-perfect comedy set in the Brooklyn projects of the late 1960s. This alone may qualify it as one of the year's best novels.' The Washington Post From the winner of a National Book Award and author of The Good Lord Bird , soon to be a TV series starring Ethan Hawke The year is 1969. In a housing project in south Brooklyn, a shambling old church deacon called Sportscoat shoots - for no apparent reason - the local drug-dealer who used to be part of the church's baseball team. The repercussions of that moment draw in the whole community, from Sportscoat's best friend - Hot Sausage - to the local Italian mobsters, the police (corrupt and otherwise), and the stalwart ladies of the Five Ends Baptist Church. DEACON KING KONG is a book about a community under threat, about the ways people pull together in an age when the old rules are being rewritten. It is very funny in places, and heartbreaking in others. From a prize-winning storyteller, this New York Times bestseller shows us that not all secrets are meant to be hidden, and that the communities we build are fragile but vital. ______________________ What Goodreads readers are saying: ***** ' Deacon King Kong is one of those novels whose brilliance sneaks up on you. I haven't been this pleasantly surprised by a book in a while.' ***** 'I do believe I just finished one of my all time favorite books. I loved every minute spent with Sportcoat and his community. A good old fashioned yarn shot through with truth, spirit, and humor. I LOVED it!' ***** 'This book was a balm for my soul, a portrait of a black church community circa 1969 with sweet characters (well, most of them), interconnections that stretch back decades, and a plot with more than one mystery at its heart.' ***** '"Deacon" has the texture of folk lore and fable mixed with the unexpected rhythms of jazz and the noisy streets of late 1960s Brooklyn.' ***** 'The ending was one of those where you clutch your heart and want to hug the book (or your Kindle).'

    Paulo Coelho

    To learn about yourself, explore the world around you.

    Drawing on the rich experience of his own life, bestselling author Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to relive the dreams of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order.

    In HIPPIE, he tells the story of Paulo, a skinny Brazilian with a goatee and long hair, setting off on a journey in search of a deeper meaning for his life.

    He travels on the famous 'Death Train to Bolivia', then on to Peru, later hitchhiking through Chile and Argentina. In the famous Dam Square in Amsterdam he finds young people playing music, while discussing sexual liberation, the expansion of consciousness and the search for an inner truth.

    There he meets Karla, a Dutch woman in her twenties who has been waiting to find the ideal companion to accompany her on the fabled hippie trail to Nepal. Together with their fellow travellers, they embark on a trip aboard the Magic Bus, heading across Europe and Central Asia to Kathmandu.

    For everyone, the journey is transformative. For Paulo and Karla it is a life-defining love story that leads to choices that will set the course of the rest of their lives.

    Anne Tyler

    Selected as a Book of the Year in The Times & Guardian *** As read on Radio 4 *** ''You can''t get around Kate Battista as easily as all that'' Kate Battista is feeling stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, she''s always in trouble at work - her pre-school charges adore her, but the adults don''t always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner. Dr Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There''s only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr... When Dr Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he''s relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he''s really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men''s touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round? Anne Tyler''s retelling of The Taming of the Shrew asks whether a thoroughly modern, independent woman like Kate would ever sacrifice herself for a man. The answer is as individual, off-beat and funny as Kate herself. ''I loved Kate and Pyotr and the way they discover the oversized, tender, irreverent relationship that fits them... It is joyful'' Rachel Joyce ''Read her books and she can actually change your view, change how you see the world'' Judy Finigan, Mail on Sunday ''Tyler writes with an apparent effortlessness which conceals great art'' Helen Dunmore, Stylist ''Tyler''s sentences are wholly hers, instantly recognisable and impossible to duplicate'' Hanya Yanigihara, Observer ''A new novel from Tyler is always a treat'' Daily Mail

    ''So good, so intelligent, so clever, so entertaining - I adored it.'' CLAIRE TOMALIN ''This is a deeply imagined and deeply moving novel. Reading it made me happy and weepy in equally copious amounts.'' KAREN JOY FOWLER ________________________________ A wonderfully original, emotionally complex ''reading-group'' novel that delves into why Cassandra burned a treasure trove of letters written by her sister, Jane Austen - an act of destruction that has troubled academics for centuries. It''s 1840, twenty-three years after the death of her famous sister Jane, and Cassandra Austen - alone and unwed - returns to the vicarage in the village of Kintbury. There, in a dusty corner of the sprawling vicarage, she discovers a treasure trove of family letters - and within them secrets that she feels certain must not be revealed. She resolves to burn the letters, even those written by Jane herself. But why destroy so much of her sister''s legacy? As Cassandra casts an eye back on her youth and the life of her brilliant yet complex sister, she pieces together long-buried truths from both her and Jane''s pasts, and knows she must make a terrible choice: let the contents of the letters colour Jane''s memory for ever - or protect her reputation no matter the cost. ________________________________ ''Gill Hornby ingeniously imagines what Cassandra Austen''s own life might have been like, both before and after Jane''s untimely death, casting a different light on the familiar biographical picture without in any way distorting it.'' DEIRDRE LE FAYE, editor of Jane Austen''s Letters ''Miss Austen is affecting, thought-provoking, and makes you think about both Jane and Cassandra Austen in a new light.''
