'The Sparrow is one of my favourite science fiction novels and it destroyed me in the best way when I read it. It is so beautifully written and the construction of the narrative is masterful.' Emma Newman, acclaimed author of Planetfall Set in the 21st century - a number of decades from now - The Sparrow is the story of a charismatic Jesuit priest and talented linguist, Emilio Sandoz, who - in response to a remarkable radio signal from the depths of space - leads a scientific mission to make first contact with an extraterrestrial culture. In the true tradition of Jesuit adventurers before him, Sandoz and his companions are prepared to endure isolation, suffering - even death - but nothing can prepare them for the civilisation they encounter. Or for the tragic misunderstanding that brings the mission to a devastating end. Once considered a living saint, Sandoz returns alone to Earth horrifically maimed, both physically and spiritually, the mission's sole survivor - only to be blamed for the mission's failure and accused of heinous crimes. Written in clean, effortless prose and peopled with memorable characters who never lose their humanity or humour, The Sparrow is a powerful, haunting fiction - a tragic but ultimately triumphant novel about the nature of faith, of love and what it means to be 'human' and widely considered to be a classic of the genre.

""On a blistering Punjabi morning, Father Joseph approached the group of village headmen gathered in a courtyard. Seated on charpoys in a semicircle, the men did not look happy. Eyes glared and turbaned heads stared, their enmity palpable as they fingered their swords. Suddenly, an old man with a dirty turban approached him nervously. 'Are you the priest who reported this problem?' Joseph said that he was. 'You have done a very bad thing. These are dangerous men. If somebody points a finger at them, they will cut off that finger. Calling them to come here is a big insult. This cannot have a happy ending.'"" ***** "Eye on the Sparrow" chronicles the extraordinary journey of a young Indian-born boy who overcomes poverty, discrimination, and horrific historical events to become one of Pakistan's first indigenous Catholic priests. Growing up amid mosques and madrassas, often walking twenty miles for a holy day celebration, Joseph's story is an insightful (often humorous) account of how a darkskinned Bhatti from Hindu's lowest caste, aspiring only to serve his God, succeeds beyond anything he could have ever imagined. Set against the background of Pakistan's rich and complex history, "Eye on the Sparrow" reveals a unique and compassionate culture that has been torn asunder by the subjugation of foreign rule, the agony of partition, and the oppression of a politically turbulent Islamic state. As Western governments struggle to balance democratic ideals with religious extremism, Father Joseph's story offers a compelling message of faith and hope in the face of terrorism and ignorance.

Shinkichi Takahashi is one of the truly great figures in world poetry. In the classic Zen tradition of economy, disciplined attention, and subtlety, Takahashi lucidly captures that which is contemporary in its problems and experiences, yet classic in its quest for unity with the Absolute. Lucien Stryk, Takahashi's fellow poet and close friend, here presents Takahashi's complete body of Zen poems in an English translation that conveys the grace and power of Takahashi's superb art. "A first-rate poet . . . [Takahashi] springs out of some crack between ordinary worlds: that is, there is some genuine madness of the sort striven for in Zen." -- Robert Bly; "We visit places in Takahashi that we once may have visited in a dream, or in a moment too startling to record the perception. . . . You need know nothing of Zen to become immersed in his work. You will inevitably know something of Zen when you emerge." -- Jim Harrison, American Poetry Review

Sometimes she wished she was an only child . . . "She's lovely! Look at those curls. Those blue eyes. She's just beautiful!" Berta was used to hearing comments like that. But they were not about her. . . . Whenever ladies came to the house or met her mother on the street, they exclaimed over Berta's little sister, Glenna. Somewhere along the way, Berta decided that whatever Glenna was, she would not be. Whatever Glenna did, she would not do. Whatever Glenna liked, she would not like. She would be the opposite. Sure enough, Glenna is sparkling, vivacious, outgoing, and adored, while Berta is serious, dependable, and prim. Their relationship grows more and more distant until, finally, Berta must look into her heart and discover what truly has caused the rift between them.

A wealthy man’s murder draws Inspector Heimrich into a high-class conspiracy in this mystery from the coauthor of the “excellent” Mr. and Mrs. North series (The New Yorker). Inspector M. L. Heimrich of the New York State Police may not have the flash of hard-boiled city detectives, but there’s no lead the intrepid investigator won’t follow until his every hunch is satisfied . . . A simple man, Inspector Heimrich is not particularly fond of large parties. Still, when he and his wife, Susan, receive an invitation to a black-tie event thrown by a wealthy local resident, Heimrich finds himself agreeing to attend the fete at his wife’s behest. No sooner does elderly Arthur Jameson announce his engagement to Dorothy Selby—his much younger assistant—than someone decides to make sure the wedding will never occur. With an arrow to the throat, Jameson’s happily ever after has shifted into the great hereafter. There are many who might want to take aim at a man like Arthur Jameson, but few who could pull off such a pointed attack. Now, Heimrich must sift through the clues to catch the vicious killer and solve yet another upper-crust caper. Not I, Said the Sparrow is the 21st book in the Captain Heimrich Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order. “Inspector Heimrich (N.Y. State Police) is as reliable and reassuring a presence as ever.” —Kirkus Reviews

How do we grow as adults? What comfort or grudge must be dispensed with, what risk embraced? This comic drama traces the lives of four stalled characters as they intersect and influence one another in odd and unexpected ways. Carol, a wife trapped, isolated and controlled by an awful man, seethes under a serene mask, but, when sickness tips the balance of power in her favour, she plots a path of retribution. Frank, an amiable, aging medical practitioner challenged by the unsettling prospect of disabling disease and a decline in professional competency, becomes preoccupied with the looming spectre of irrelevance. Quince, named after the fruit, has been content to lead a safe life supported by a comfortable inheritance, but a jolt in early middle-age exposes the tantalising and terrifying truth of his potential. And Eleanor, Frank's younger colleague, is woken from a seven-year hibernation triggered by the early death of her son's father and forced to risk hurt for happiness. Set in the central North Island of New Zealand the book provides a matrix for these flawed but endearing characters, confronted by choice and chance, to navigate their way toward interdependent but uncertain outcomes.
