Grief's Bounty by Sandy...

“I needed to understand that sudden and intense link between grief and passion: the centrality of sexuality to affirming the life of the living.”

 

A searingly honest account of how, for Sophie, grief becomes a powerful catalyst for healing the past, unleashing the full force of her mid-life female sexuality and directing her to a new life. She emerges from the ashes of her grief with a strengthened identity and deeper understanding of both herself and family.

Imagine, for a moment, the cross-section of a highrise building. Imagine the people inside. Imagine their lives, their highs and lows, what divides them, and what unites them.

To the Ancient Land by...

Theodor, the eighty-five year old protagonist in this engaging short novel, writes of his early years in Johannesburg in the 1930s and 1940s.

The story begins as he remembers how his journey began. It ends with his arrival in the fledgling Israeli state to serve his ancient homeland as a soldier-farmer on an outlying kibbutz. But the main focus is reserved for the often funny and always ironic accounts of the childhood and youth of an intelligent Jewish boy growing up in a dusty mining town in Africa.

Wanderings - The retelling...

The famous story of Odysseus’s long journey home after the Trojan War, comprising some history and a whole lot of mythology, becomes the subject of this classical, yet essentially modern, novel.

The trials that King Odysseus must endure in strange lands and the lonely vigil of his Queen Penelope during his absence – all this will be familiar territory for many readers. What makes the novel so compelling are the psychological depths to which the author takes the reader in bringing his characters to life.
