About the Book This is a collection of essays on fiction written in English, Spanish, and Bengali that has emerged recently. This fiction is seen to reflect biculturalism, that is the amalgam of two cultures that are both hegemonic in their own ways. This approach provides insight into the works discussed by uncovering elements of the the seemingly "other," non-Euroculture, and elevates both cultures to the same level. Authors discussed in the essays include: Black British Caryl Phillips, Chicana Sandra Cisneros, Chinese American Maxine Hong Kingston, Cuban American Dolores Prida, Danish Izak Dinesen, Greek Americans Nikos Papandreou and Catherine Temma Davidson, Kenyan Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Japanese American John Okada, New Zealander Patricia Grace, Peruvian José Maria Arguedas, Turkish American Güneli Gün, and contemporary English-language Indian authors Vikram Chandra, Chitra B. Divakaruni, Attia Hosain, Manju Kapur, Arundhati Roy, Salman Rushdie, as well as Rabindranath Tagore. Praise "Perhaps only a decade ago, such an ambitious, world-spanning project would have seemed absurd outside a congress of anthropologists or bankers. Today, it represents a state-of-the-art sensibility reflecting the efforts of an equally vari- ous geocultural assembly of scholars. The implications for a community of readers not only interested in but competently sensitive to such far-flung narrative geographies is equally stunning." - William Boelhower, University of Padua. Italy. Author of Through a Glass Darkly, Ethnic Semiosis in American Literature.

"This is a love story, surrounded by events unexpected and not necessarily wanted: They looked at each other while both slowly lowered their necks closer to the table-top, without blinking. It seemed they were imitating two geese sizing-up each other while deciding if the circumstances warranted a fight. She broke first and giggled despite her efforts to the contrary. He joined her. She imitated an angry cat's hiss while wrinkling her nose. He let out a belly whopper. She resumed her expressionless face. He stopped his laughter and openly pleaded: "please don't do that. You already let the cat out of the bag!" In response she put her elbows on the tabletop, interlaced her fingers, placed her chin on them and looked at his face while thinking 'he has beautiful eyes.' That thought softened her own face, causing him to admire her. He began: "Once there was, once there was not; in the times past, when the sifter was in the straw; when the flea was the town crier; and the camel, the barber; 'tıngır-mıngır' while I was gently rocking my father's cradle; there was this little pretty girl." She was puzzled, briefly knitted her brows, and then waited for an explanation. He provided it: "I once heard a story-teller begin her tales with that admonition. It is up to the audience whether what they heard is agreeable to them." He followed that with: "Later I saw that in a book called The Bald Boy Keloglan and the Most Beautiful Girl in the World." "So, what is the story?" He snapped the trap shut: "You first!" "I do not even know your name." "What better reason to begin?"--Author's description.

A laugh-out-loud memoir about a city slicker who discovers that Manolos and manure just don?t mix. At her husband?s prompting, suburban mom and New York career woman Susan McCorkindale agreed to give up her stressful six-figure job. Together, they headed down south to a 500-acre beef farm, and never looked back. Well, he didn?t look back. She did. A lot. From playing ?spot the religious billboard? on the drive to rural Virginia, to adapting to a world without Starbucks, to planning bright-orange hunter-resistant wardrobes for the kids (?We moved here to get away from the madness of Manhattan only to risk getting popped on our own property?), this is her hilarious account of how a city girl came to love?or at least tolerate?country life.

I can't think of anywhere I'd less like to be than in a car. When you're driving a car, you're not taking part, you're a spectator. You're in a can; if it's cold you turn up the heating, if you're hungry you have a wine gum. You might be looking at what's going on, but you're definitely not a part of it. A BIKER'S LIFE is the dramatic, humorous and candid memoir of one of the most recognisable names in motorcycling. Henry Cole's passion for motorbikes began when, at the age of eight, he was first introduced to a 'man cave'. His great-uncle Redbeard's corrugated iron shed was 'stuffed to the gills with old motorbikes' which Henry helped rebuild and ride. Since then, Henry's life can be charted through the bikes and journeys he has been on - from a stifling public-school education, via many years battling addiction, to the big-sky iconic routes Henry has ridden for over twenty series as presenter of numerous TV shows. This book reminds millions of motorcyclists why their bike gives them the freedom to be exactly who they want to be: to say 'I'm doing my thing.' When you ride a motorbike you become part of a worldwide community of kindred spirits - those of us who will not be pacified by driving a car, but instead live for adventure, escape and the sheer thrill of the throttle.

Book 10 in Ved Mehta's Continents of Exile series. Nearly 50 years in the making, Continents of Exile is one of the great works of twentieth-century autobiography: the epic chronicle of an Indian family in the twentieth century. From 1930s India to 1950s Oxford and literary New York in the 1960s-80s, this is the story of the post-colonial twentieth century, as uniquely experienced and vividly recounted by Ved Mehta. In lucid, sparse prose Mehta documents the twists and turns of a romantic history peppered with disappointment and anguish - that is until, in his search for self-understanding, he meets a surprising guide who shows the way toward new insights about himself and those he has loved.

John Gray, the captain of the ss Great Britain since 1854, mysteriously disappeared on his way home from Australia in November 1872. Although very popular with his passengers and crew he did have a violent side to his nature; he would use his fists on anyone who disobeyed him, and sometimes put them in irons, deep in the bowels of the ship. It has always been supposed he committed suicide. This book sets out to prove he was murdered.
