I Leap Over The Wall
Lifted By The Great Nothing
The Insect Farm
Brothers Jonathan and Roger Maguire each have an obsession. For Jonathan, it is his beautiful and talented girlfriend Harriet. For Roger, it is the elaborate universe he has constructed in a shed in their parents’ garden, populated by millions of tiny insects. But Roger lives in an impenetrable world of his own and, after the mysterious death of their parents, Jonathan is forced to give up his studies to take care of him. This obligation forces Jonathan to live apart from Harriet – further fuelling his already jealous nature. Their lives are abruptly shattered by a sudden and violent death, and Jonathan is drawn into a cat-and-mouse game with the police. Does Roger know more than he is letting on?
Max lives with his father, Rasheed, and doesn’t remember his mother, who was murdered by burglars before father and son were forced to emigrate from Beirut to New Jersey. Rasheed is enamoured of his idea of American culture – baseball and barbecues – and has tried to shed his Lebanese heritage completely. He has a single purpose in life: to provide Max with a joyful childhood; though sometimes his efforts do more harm than good. When Max turns seventeen, he discovers that his father has been lying to him – about everything – and their peaceful universe is destroyed. As Max ventures on an uncertain journey to Beirut, he must ask himself, what happens when your truth is a fable? And can some lies be a sacrifice in disguise?
A Return To The World After Twenty-
Eight Years In A Convent
At the age of twenty-one, Monica Baldwin, daughter of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, entered one of the oldest and most strictly enclosed contemplative orders of the Roman Catholic Church. Twenty-eight years later, after a prolonged struggle with her vocation, she left the convent. But the world Monica had known in 1914 was very different to the world into which she emerged at the height of the Second World War. This is the account of one woman’s two very different lives, with revealing descriptions of the world of a novice, the daily duties of a nun, and the spiritual aspects of convent life. Interwoven with these, as the author is confronted with fashions, politics and art totally unfamiliar to her, are the trials and tribulations of coping with a new and alien world.
