Description:

Three Revolutions in the Equatorial Americas.
A volume of three feature pieces treating revolutions in each of Panama, Nicaragua and the building of tensions in Haiti.
1. In Panama, a Pantomime.
Billed as support for a rebellion against General Noriega, the US invaded Panama for Christmas 1989. A year later Western expatriates in their clubs and enclaves were still divided.
GENERAL NORIEGA'S portrait stood on the hotel bar, his cap crusted with laurels, stars the length of his epaulets, his cheeks pocked and grainy. The camera had caught him reviewing a parade.
2. The Play of Children.
In Port o Prince, Haiti, waiting for the elections, tension builds, as does the heat. Here, we sit in a restaurant, speaking of Haitian artistries, during a power failure.
We were all eyes, in this dusk. Mme Du Paix said, 'The Voodoo has taken over the Naive in our culture. No artistry speaks without voodoo.'
3. The Fall of Old Managua.
The Nicaraguan revolution split families, none more than the Reyes, in which two brothers each became prominent leaders of opposing factions. In the first free elections in a decade, during the period in which President Reagan was still denying collaboration with the Contras, the US backed faction lead by Violetta Chamorro took government.

Description:

In a time and place where the gulf between the haves and the have-nots has grown painfully wide, Olivia lives a life cushioned with abundance.
Until the day she is kidnapped and held for ransom by Hannah, a girl from a very different kind of life.
Olivia discovers a taste for things not commonly condoned in her world: black-market books, daring friends, wild creativity.
From the depths of factory oppression to the dizzying heights of vigilante rooftops, Olivia travels the margins of society, where the misfits gather and build homes for themselves out of whatever they can get their hands on - and fight to make a life worth living.

Description:

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go …
 
Maggie is Thursday’s Child, a spirited girl growing up in an English country village  surrounded by apple orchards and hop fields. Neighbours are friends and the local landowner, the Squire, is a fair, decent man to his workers. Life could be idyllic, if not for the unwelcome intrusion of air raids.
 
This is 1941 and WW2 is raging. When peacetime is finally declared in 1945, it seems the war is over - but through tragic circumstances Maggie realises that war comes in many guises. Life changes from one of happy frivolity to loneliness and rejection.
 
However, the village, her friends and a deep fascination with a four-penny stamp from a country far away that she has never seen but yearns for all give Maggie the strength to keep moving forward.
 
Ultimately, Maggie learns the most valuable of lessons - to believe in her dreams and in herself.

Description:

Nothing is quite what it seems in this tall tale; dubious science meets equally dubious myth making. The myth of the Tiger-wolf (Thylacine alpine) is it, as they say, a fraud? The fantastic adventures of the "Green Avenger" cartoon, drawn by Nat Klein, just one of his inventions of improbable worth. Welcome to the Society of the Wolf, the re-creation of Tasmania's Great Western Tiers within a vast snow-jar constructed in the Victorian Museum. A tale of love and redemption, deep ecology and the dreams we live by. Join Nat and Rosslyn, Eugene, Nadia, Mary and the Green Avenger on this romp through the snow bound world of the Tiers.

Description:

The first and best biography of the great Troubadour with artwork by Martin Sharp.
 
Throughout his lifetime, Tiny Tim was a repository of recorded music stemming from the early days of vaudeville to the latest chart favourites. But despite all these influences he remained a true original perfecting his performances as an outreach of his personality. True, he had some strange traits, but they did not impede on his enthusiastic kindness to people he loved, to the musicians he accompanied, and to the many listeners he met. In the age of celebrity, he functioned as the complete entertainer. Lowell Tarling has provided Tiny with a living biography and given us a definitive incentive to re-listen to his recording and re-visit his numerous You Tube postings. You get the feeling that somewhere Tiny is standing on his tiptoes, strumming his ukulele, blowing kisses and saying, 'God bless you all!'
- Hal Stein, (Tiny's cousin and close friend) April 2013

Description:

Don't be deceived by this tardis of a book, its three small monologues contain multitudes. Through the gently detailed lives of its subjects whole civilisations emerge: the fifteenth-century India of the dying and illiterate poet, Kabir; the Stalinist Russia of Chekhov's younger sister, Maria; and the early seventeenth-century, Inquisition-ravaged Italy of the Calabrian theologian and poet, Tommaso Campanella. The characters, at the end of their lives, are haunted by their pasts, and in prose of simple, meditative, elegiac beauty, Jaireth suggests that this nostalgia is neither a longing for a lost place or a lost time, but is, rather, a homelessness in time - his own included - an uneasiness that has driven all that they have and have not done. The book is ultimately about the mystery of creation itself, the silence from which all things come and to which they inevitably return.
- John Hughes
Subhash Jaireth lives in Canberra. Between 1969 and 1978 he spent nine years in Moscow. He has published three books of poetry: Yashodhara: Six Seasons without You (Wild Peony, 2003), Unfinished Poems for Your Violin (Penguin Australia, 1996) and Before the Bullet Hit Me (Vani Prakashan, 1994, in Hindi).

Description:

A novel written true to the histories, and true to the memories of Enric Torres i Barbo, whose life and philosophies this novel takes for its guide.
Twin boys Enric and Josep, at ten years of age, served as spies and couriers in the Resistance by the Republican Spanish against the invasion of Fascist forces in Spain, then from Italy and Germany during the Civil War.
In Catalonia the war begins in Barcelona.
THE MAZE of alleys and passageways of the old city as we passed through were not at all quiet. The closer we came to the Ronda Universitat the more gunfire we could hear. Not only from the direction of the Placa de Catalunya, it bounced from a building behind us, which made us crouch and whirl, and then from laneways where there was no one, as if the sound of war could stalk the town of its own accord.
The twins will go on, for the Resistance, to gather intelligence, to running propaganda leaflets and contraband across the French border, to guiding fugitives over the Pyrenees.
Of this time in his childhood Enric has said, 'It was so cold up there, I tell you, I pee icicles.'

Description:

Travel writer, explorer and novelist.
'Gaunts never give up', the motto of Mary's ancestor, Prince John of Gaunt (1340-1399) was quoted by Mary's father, William Gaunt, to his children.
In the 1880s, Mary Gaunt was one of the first women admitted to Melbourne University. Miss Gaunt's desire to study law was denied since male academics believed women incapable of studying 'difficult' subjects. In 1909, Mary, now widowed, led her own expedition into the West African jungle, staying in remote villages to gather information for her book 'Alone in West Africa'. In 1913, in the absence of sealed roads, Mary travelled in a bone-shaking mule cart from Peking to the edge of the Gobi desert and returned to Europe on a Russian troop train. Her amazing experiences in China and Russia produced two more travel books. Mary donated her royalties to the Red Cross to help Belgian refugees. For many years she lived in Italy and, during World War Two, died in France.

Description:

“It echoed around my head. The carbon wing blade flexed in the water as I thrust like a man possessed. Past the point of no return, I was above the log jam. A broken blade, maybe even a missed stroke and that could be my last. The river was rough, it was ugly and I was bouncing like a cork.”
 
Lovers of adventure will thrill at the task Steve Posselt set himself on the biggest kayak trip of his life. Up the Mississippi, through the canals of the US and the UK, down the Thames, across the channel and up the Seine to Paris. Crazy? Steve Posselt is a climate warrior, determined to raise the awareness of climate chaos and its impact on our daily lives. He set off from Canberra in January 2015 to drag his kayak through three continents and attend the Paris Climate Conference officially known as COP21. This is the story of what he learned about himself on the way. It is also the story of despair and redemption as a buoyant, enthusiastic movement embraced him when he finally returned home. A must read for every climate activist, adventurer and their friends.
