📒In Your Eyes A Sandstorm ✍ Arthur Neslen
📝In Your Eyes a Sandstorm Book Synopsis : "In this impossible task of representation, Arthur Neslen writes a book that is impossible to put down. "In Your Eyes a Sandstorm" is where Joyce's "The Dubliners" meets Howard Zinn's "A People's History." Thrilling, compassionate, and unflinching narratives and dialogues converge the critical events of contemporary Palestinian being into the present. Palestinians are field negroes, house negroes, ghettoized schlemiels and pariahs, ethnically cleansed, colonized, occupied, militant, pacifist, doctors, zookeepers, rappers, journalists, teachers, etc. They are also an original people who will continue to write a new story in the book of survival and hope, of overcoming suffering and, hopefully, of going beyond power." --Fady Joudah, author of "The Earth in the Attic" and translator of Mahmoud Darwish's "If I Were Another" "In this wonderful collection, one can hear the Palestinians speaking for themselves and not through others who may distort or dim their messages. Very few collections have brought home to us so vividly and authentically what it means to be a Palestinian today." --Ilan Pappe, author of "The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian Dynasty" "This highly original work is an important contribution to Palestine literature, especially in the way that personal narrative interacts with and enriches collective-national and public memory." --Nur Masalha, author of "Expulsion of the Palestinians: The Concept of "Transfer" in Zionist Political Thought" "Neslen powerfully gives voice to Palestinians, humanizes them, and reveals the complexities of Palestinian society." --Sara Roy, author of "Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza " "A remarkable achievement at the junction of Middle East politics and anthropology, this collection of interviews with Palestinians from eight successive generations--defined according to historical watersheds--is a necessary complement to treatise-like readings on the Palestinians and the Israel-Palestine conflict. It offers the means for a reasoned empathy with the Palestinian people, and provides a perfect counterpoint to the 'journey through the Israeli psyche' which Arthur Neslen took his readers on in his previous book." --Gilbert Achcar, author of "The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives"
📒Shifting Sands ✍ Will Kester
📝Shifting Sands Book Synopsis : Saudi Arabia, 1973: In his job as interpreter and laborer for an American-Arabian Company, Saleh has come to understand the American mindset through his boss, Bill. But Saleh finds himself in conflict with his culture. Even though his father wants him to attend university and base his future on the will of Allah, Saleh is intrigued with the United States and wants to pursue his education there. With his father's blessing, Saleh attends school in America. Unfortunately, America is not the land he dreamed of, as prejudice and hatred follow him. When an American girl named Blair befriends him, she quickly "Americanizes" him-new haircut, new clothes, and new understanding. But Saleh cannot forget his culture. After college, Saleh advances in the oil business and soon becomes a powerful player, in his country's major industry-oil. When he becomes involved in a terrorist plot to destroy the economies of the Western World, will Saleh remember his early goodwill toward the West or will he succumb to his hatred? From the burning sands of the Saudi Arabian desert to the business centers of the world's economies, terrorists, peacemakers, religions, and cultures collide in this thrilling novel.
📒Quicksand ✍ Henning Mankell
📝Quicksand Book Synopsis : In January 2014 Henning Mankell was informed that he had cancer. However, Quicksand is not a book about death, but about what it means to be human. Mankell writes about love and jealousy, courage and fear, about what it is like to live with a fatal illness. This book is also about why the cave painters 40,000 years ago chose the very darkest places for their fascinating pictures. And about the dreadful troll that we are trying to lock away inside the bedrock of a Swedish mountain for the next 100,000 years. It is a book about how humanity has lived and continues to live, and about how Henning lived his own life. And, not least, about the great zest for life, which came back when he managed to drag himself out of the quicksand that threatened to suck him down into the abyss.

📒The Dating Game Killer ✍ Stella Sands
📝The Dating Game Killer Book Synopsis : In 1978, Rodney Alcala was a contestant on the "The Dating Game," one of America's most popular television shows at the time. Handsome, successful, and romantic, he was embraced by the audience—and chosen as the winner by the beautiful bachelorette. To viewers across the country, Rodney seemed like the answer to every woman's dreams. Until they learned the truth about his once and future crimes... Ten years before his TV appearance, Rodney was charged with the sexual assault and attempted murder of an eight-year-old girl. In the decades that followed, he would be accused of seven murders—and, as new DNA evidence continues to be uncovered, the list may grow. The case is so disturbing that it's been documented in several news outlets, from People magazine and USA Today to 48 Hours Mystery and Dr. Phil. The Dating Game Killer is the shocking true story about the dark and twisted man.
📝THE VAGARIES OF SWING Footprints on the Margate Sands of Time Book Synopsis : The BBC TV series "True Love" was the catalyst for this tale, portraying various romantic encounters, all set by the Margate seaside. True love has many forms. A passion for cricket can also be a manifestation of love. Yet it is impossible to discuss cricket, with its broad themes, without reflecting on life itself. I have set my story broadly in 1965, when a girl lost her life. At the time, her death meant little to us but such are the vagaries of writing, that the more I researched the subject, the greater I became drawn in. Any discussion on the circumstances surrounding her murder led inevitably to the inclusion of another theme, which I have encountered in life, violence towards women. I still return to Margate regularly and regard it with deep affection. It was in danger of becoming a wasteland. There are those now, some famous, some often unsung, trying to fashion a resurgence. Another form of true love. May their guardian angels help them succeed.
