A new novel by a towering presence in contemporary South African literature In 1971, nineteen citizens of Excelsior in South Africa's white-ruled Free State were charged with breaking apartheid's Immorality Act, which forbade sex between blacks and whites. Taking this case as raw material for his alchemic imagination, Zakes Mda tells the story of a family at the heart of the scandal -and of a country in which apartheid concealed interracial liaisons of every kind. Niki, the fallen madonna, transgresses boundaries for the sake of love; her choices have repercussions in the lives of her black son and mixed-race daughter, who come of age in post-apartheid South Africa, where freedom prompts them to reexamine their country's troubled history at first hand. By turns earthy, witty, and tragic, The Madonna of Excelsior is a brilliant depiction of life in South Africa and of the dramatic changes between the 1970s and the present.

The classic, award-winning novel, made famous by Steven Spielberg's film, tells of a young boy's struggle to survive World War II in China. Jim is separated from his parents in a world at war. To survive, he must find a strength greater than all the events that surround him. Shanghai, 1941 -- a city aflame from the fateful torch of Pearl Harbor. In streets full of chaos and corpses, a young British boy searches in vain for his parents. Imprisoned in a Japanese concentration camp, he is witness to the fierce white flash of Nagasaki, as the bomb bellows the end of the war...and the dawn of a blighted world. Ballard's enduring novel of war and deprivation, internment camps and death marches, and starvation and survival is an honest coming-of-age tale set in a world thrown utterly out of joint.

Jennifer is a young, innocent girl, happily living a carefree existence in a safe, small seaside community, when on October 5, 1942, a fateful event changes the course of her life forever. The sinking of the Larry Doheny by a Japanese submarine off the coast of Port Orford, Oregon, propels her into the horrors of World War II, where she meets Jack Long, a young Navy man rescued from the ship. Sensing that he is somehow different, she is drawn to him as she helps treat his wounds, relishing the chance to get to know someone from a big city-Los Angeles. But before she has the chance to learn more, he is whisked away by the Navy, and, just as unpredictably, she sets off to Portland as a Red Cross volunteer to care for the many casualties from the war in the Pacific. Eventually, she returns home to make a life with her high school sweetheart and live happily ever after-or not. A memoir of sorts, spanning a half century, from World War II to Vietnam to Kuwait, this is Jennifer's story of redemption-for those who bear the horrible scars of war; and of love-great love for a man, family and a town she chooses to call home, Port Orford, Oregon. Isolated on the very edge of the continent, steeped in history and fraught with hardships, disasters and tragedies, it is The Last Frontier of the Fading West.

George Orwell’s 1984 takes on new life with extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity. “Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”—The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s masterpiece, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.” Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.
