Exile

Ann Ireland

Short-listed for the 2002 Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction and the 2002 Roger Writers' Trust Fiction Prize Rescued from the dangers he faces in a Latin American military dictatorship, writer Carlos Romero Estevez is given a new life in Vancouver. His rescuers, a benevolent group devoted to aiding oppressed writers, believe they've found a poster-boy. Carlos thinks he's found a new life, new freedom, and new, powerful friends. But soon everyone's illusions are dispelled, and Carlos finds life in exile to be a new kind of prison. Now available in trade paperback format for the first time, Exile is the work of an author in full control of her considerable talents. Award-winning author Ann Ireland is the author of two previous novels: A Certain Mr. Takahashi (1985 – now available from The Dundurn Group), and The Instructor (1996). She teaches at Ryerson University, and is a past-president of PEN Canada.

Yaroslaw's Treasure

Myroslav Petriw

Winner of the 2002 Anna Pidruchney Award For New Writers On a visit to Ukraine to retrieve a family heirloom secretly buried by his grandfather during the Second World War, Yaroslaw, a Ukrainian-Canadian university student, stumbles into a world full of spies and secret organizations, peril and political intrigue. His discovery of the hidden cache yields clues to the location of a fabled lost treasure-the greatest in all Europe. Working against time, Yaroslaw and a small band of accomplices struggle to uncover and save a nation’s heritage, operating in secret to prevent the corrupt leaders of the government and the Russians-from stealing it. Yaroslaw’s Treasure is a thrilling suspense story set against the gripping drama of the Orange Revolution, the 2004 popular uprising that saw hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets in Ukraine to overthrow a corrupt government and reinforce democracy in a land long occupied by repressive and foreign regimes. Rich with history, romance, politics, and danger, Yaroslaw’s Treasure superbly captures the wonders and horrors of Ukraine’s past, swirls through the treacherous currents of its present politics, all the while providing entertainment as a first-rate thriller.

Uprising

Douglas L. Bland

World at War

David T. Maddox

[b]For readers who love The Last Jihad by Joel C. Rosenberg [/b]THE STAGE IS SET FOR WAR…Highly orchestrated plans are put into motion to inflict terror across the country. Plans to use America’s trucking and shipping infrastructure to destroy the fabric of our society while involving Russia to neutralize America’s nuclear threat are in full motion. Israel is being attacked even as moderate Arab leaders are assassinated to create a fundamentalist Middle East. If the plan succeeds, America would be left without refinery capacity, electricity and water purification in a single day. Who will lead a bitterly divided country and just what role―if any―does the US play in history's last days? Extrapolating from historical research and forecasting into the future, this question is addressed as the President discovers what his nation faces. It doesn’t seem there are any good options and that deliverance is impossible. But we live in a world that is far beyond what we can see. In this conclusion to The Curtain Series , the spiritual battle lines are drawn between the forces of light and darkness and the immediacy and dimensions of the threat become known in the physical world. President Strong knows what is coming and calls America to stand before God… before it faces its enemies.

1900: Or; The Last President

Lockwood Ingersoll

This near-future political satire about the election of a new president argues that socialism and populism will eventually give rise to chaos and disaster. Authored by Ingersoll Lockwood-around whom conspiracy theories concerning the sci-fi/fantasy character Baron Trump now abound-1900; or, The Last President is notable for both its clairvoyance and its reflection on the social movements and political climate of its time.

Отдел деликатных расследований

Александр Макколл Смит

В шведской системе уголовного права находится место даже самым сложным и странным делам, за которые в полиции Мальмё отвечает элитное подразделение, известное как Отдел деликатных расследований: Ульф «Волк» Варг, внимательный и вдумчивый лидер, Анна Бенгсдоттер, влюбленная в машину Варга (не исключено, что и в самого Варга тоже), Карл Хольгерссон, который больше всего на свете любит заполнять бумаги, и Эрик Нюквист, всей душой преданный искусству рыболовства. Ульф берется за самые необычные преступления, требующие такта и хорошего знания человеческой натуры, попутно пытаясь распутать клубок собственных романтических чувств и помочь своему псу, единственной во всей Швеции собаке, которая научилась читать по губам, справиться с депрессией.

The Reactive

Masande Ntshanga

*Winner of The Betty Trask Award (2018)* Sunday Times Barry Ronge Fiction Prize Finalist*Etisalat Prize for Literature Longlist *One of the Best Books of the Year 2016 — City Press , The Sunday Times , The Star , This is Africa , Africa's a Country , Sunday World Heralded in the author's native South Africa as «the hottest novel of the year,» The Reactive is a clear-eyed and compassionate depiction of a young HIV+ man grappling with the sudden death of his younger brother, for which he feels unduly responsible. Lindanathi and his friends—Cecelia and Ruan—make their living working low-paying jobs and selling anti-retroviral drugs (during the period in South Africa before ARVs became broadly distributed). In between, they huff glue, drift in and out of parties, and traverse the streets of Cape Town, where they observe the grave material disparities of their country. A mysterious masked man appears seeking to buy their surplus of ARVs, an offer that would present the three with the opportunity to escape their environs, while at the same time forcing Lindanathi to confront his path, and finally, his past. With brilliant, shimmering prose, Ntshanga has delivered a redemptive, ambitious, and unforgettable first novel. "[ The Reactive is] a searing, gorgeously written account of life, love, illness, and death in South Africa. With exquisite prose, formal innovation, and a masterful command of storytelling, Ntshanga illustrates how some young people navigated the dusk that followed the dawn of freedom in South Africa and humanizes the casualties of the Mbeki government's fatal policies on HIV & AIDS." —Naomi Jackson, Poets & Writers
