26/11, 9/11, 7/7—dates that have changed the way we see ourselves and those around us. Dates that have changed the world, and not for the better. Why is the world getting increasingly fragmented? Is there a way for us to understand different viewpoints better? In this collection, writers from India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan—Gulzar, Elmo Jayawardena, Manjula Padmanabhan, Poile Sengupta, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Subhadra Sen Gupta and others—write about various kinds of conflict in our society and history. Some stories are dark, others full of light and hope, and some outright funny as they portray mindless bigots for what they are. When a church burns in Bangalore, the altar cloth ends up in the hands of Mubina, whose grandmother can clean and repair it like no one else; years after the Partition tore a friendship apart, two people try to find the happiness that was once within their reach; and while chasing away courting couples from the Delhi Ridge, a young thug learns a lesson about what really makes Indian ‘culture’. Interspersed with poems that articulate pleas for peace and understanding, this collection is sure to start a conversation on religion, race, caste, and mindsets that divide us.

A powerful survivor's account of the IRA bomb that killed the author's 14-year-old twin brother, his grandparents and a family friend, published on the 30th anniversary of the atrocity. Winner of the 2011 Christopher Ewart-Biggs Literary Award, and nominated for the 2009-2010 PEN/JR Ackerley prize. On the August bank holiday weekend in 1979, 14-year-old Timothy Knatchbull went out on a boat trip off the shore of Mullaghmore in County Sligo, Ireland. It was a trip that would cost four lives - and change his own for ever. The IRA bomb that exploded in their boat killed Knatchbull's grandfather Lord Mountbatten, his grandmother Lady Brabourne, his twin brother Nicholas, and local teenager Paul Maxwell. In telling this story for the first time, Knatchbull is not only revisiting the terrible events he and his family lived through, but also writing an intensely personal account of human triumph over tragedy. For thirty years, Knatchbull has lived with the echoes of that day: the death of the twin from whom he had been inseparable; the loss of his adored grandparents, whose funerals along with his twin's he and his parents were too injured to attend; the recovery from physical wounds; and the emotional legacy that proved harder to endure. In From A Clear Blue Sky Timothy Knatchbull delves into his past, present and future, and reveals a story of courage and fortitude as he, his family, and their English and Irish friends dealt with the shocking assassinations and their aftermath. Taking place in Ireland at the height of the Troubles, it gives a compelling insight into that period of Irish history. But more importantly it brings home that although tragedy can strike at any moment, the human spirit is able to recover and evolve over time. This book about truth and reconciliation, unflinching in its detail, asks searching questions about why human beings inflict misery on others, and holds lessons about how we can learn to forgive, to heal and to move on. It will resonate with readers the world over.

THE SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR Daily MailAs a young boy of eight, Jonny Bairstow was dealt a cruel blow. His father David 'Bluey' Bairstow, the combative and very popular wicketkeeper and captain of Yorkshire, took his own life at the age of forty-six. David left behind Jonny, Jonny's sister Becky and half-brother Andy, and his wife Janet, who had recently been diagnosed with cancer at the time of his death. From these incredibly tough circumstances, Jonny and his family strived to find an even keel and come to terms with the loss of their father and husband. Jonny found his way through his dedication to sport. He was a gifted and natural athlete, with potential careers ahead of him in rugby and football, but he eventually chose cricket and came to build a career that echoed his father's, eventually reaching the pinnacle of the sport and breaking the record for most Test runs in a year by a wicketkeeper. Written with multiple-award-winning writer Duncan Hamilton, this is an incredible story of triumph over adversity and a memoir with far-reaching lessons about determination and the will to overcome.

Peggy's desire to be loved sometimes gets her into trouble. An accidental pregnancy sends her world and all plans for the future into a tailspin.In the early 1970s women were at the precipice in a new wave of fights for equal rights. Even so, Peggy, like many girls her age, wanted to get married and start a family. She yearned for the chance to choose her own dinner menu, one without tuna casserole. While working for her father at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York, she meets an immigrant from Mexico, Jacinto, who had recently come to the states to be a jockey. Jacinto and Peggy hit it off from the start but quickly get themselves into trouble. Pregnancy. Unable to deal with the pressure, Jacinto acts out in anger, sometimes uncontrollably. When tragedy strikes, Jacinto blames Peggy and becomes dead set on punishing her. This time, his anger gets the best of him, and it may cost him, and her, everything.Follow the lives of several young women in this provocative series about living in an era of redefining roles. Their inspirational stories help women find strength, resilience, and their place in this world.Review-"Perfect books for horse lovers, particularly those interested in women breaking into horse racing in the late 1960s!"-"Great mixture of horse racing and romance as the author deals with real life issues women sometimes go through."-Reviewers often mention the author's detailed knowledge of horse racing and a writing style that keeps you hooked.-These books have been called, "hard to put down" and "page turners."-They're geared toward young women, but male reviewers have also enjoyed them, even though they wouldn't normally read stories like this. The fast pace keeps them drawn in.From the AuthorAs a relatively new author, I realize I need time to develop a following. My review numbers may be small, but my books are well-written, well-edited, and well-loved. My books are entertaining and I think you'll enjoy reading them even if you're not into horse racing. I try to incorporate real world issues, especially women's issues, into my books. As someone who has survived a lot in life, I have some experience to work with and not only is it healing for me to write, it's healing for those who read the stories.I started Chivalry (book 1) with the intent of writing a romance novel, but I felt compelled more, to make it different than your ordinary romance novel, and I decided that it was important to mention the struggles of women in the late 1960s, in particular, the struggle for women to break into horse racing. The result of adding that plot line (not one you'd find in your average romance novel) landed it in the "historical fiction" category. Since then, I decided to stay there and focus on history with a little romance on the side. I wanted more for my books than the usual romance plot, and I think I've established that.I have a small fan group now, but they are loyal and anxious to read whatever comes next in the series. I'm working feverishly to get the other books out as soon as I can for them!
