"Preeta Dhingra, an editor at Pradhan Publishers, has a dead-end job editing cheap romantic fiction. Life changes when one day a submission lands on her desk, a compilation of stories by well-known women whose public lives shield the terrible trauma of marital infidelity. Anchoring this project is celebrity banker Sonia Vaswani, a financial powerhouse whose marriage of twenty years has ended in divorce. Now Sonia has chosen to go public with the facts and share her vulnerability with the whole world. Preeta, single mother of a physically challenged child prodigy, chooses to go ahead with the publication of the book in defiance of her boss's fiat against it. In doing so, she puts at risk her job, the trust of her friend, Sonia, and her relationship with Prakash Raghuraj, her mentor and close friend. Preeta's decision to publish the book is borne out of her desire to do some thing meaningful in life, something that she can be proud of even if it means sacrificing the opportunity to earn enough money to take her daughter to the US for treatment. In the process, she learns some things about her origins that she didn't know before, along with the ability to be at peace with what ever life chooses to throw her way." --Page [4] of cover.

This volume illuminates how creative representations remain sites of ongoing struggles to engage with animals in indigenous epistemologies. Traditionally imagined in relation to spiritual realms and the occult, animals have always been more than primitive symbols of human relations. Whether as animist gods, familiars, conduits to ancestors, totems, talismans, or co-creators of multispecies cosmologies, animals act as vital players in the lives of cultures. From early days in colonial contact zones through contemporary expressions in art, film, and literature, the volume’s unique emphasis on Southern Africa and North America – historical loci of the greatest ranges of species and linguistic diversity – help to situate how indigenous knowledges of human-animal relations are being adapted to modern conditions of life shared across species lines.

Detective and mystery stories. Suspense fiction. A police inspector is investigating a strange murder, a case in which all the suspects are eager to claim responsibility for the act. Set in a former Portuguese fort which stored slaves and ivory, Under the Frangipani combines fable and allegory, dreams and myths with an earthy humour. The dead meet the living, language is invented, reality is constantly changing. In a story which is partly a thriller, partly an exploration of language itself, Mia Couto surprises and delights, and shows just why he is one of the most important African writers of today."

Flamingo Feather, which Laurens van der Post dedicated to the 'fast vanishing Africa' of his boyhood, is a story of adventure - adventure unfolded in the great tradition of story-telling. It is the tale of two white hunters - one old, experienced and wise, one young and resolute - who suspect that something evil is being prepared on a vast scale in their country and who, with little to guide them, set out to track down its source. In the unfolding of their story, the immense scene of bush, forest, jungle, lake and mountain, the untamed wildlife and vivid animal beings, and the background mind and culture of the indigenous people in all their archaic reality, are evoked as never before. Indeed so deeply does the story draw on Laurens van der Post's knowledge of the country, so directly does it touch on vital elements in African life, that it carries the conviction of an authentic personal experience. Africa itself lies at the heart of the story, Africa as it has been and as it may yet become.
