** PRE-ORDER NIGHTS OF PLAGUE, THE NEW NOVEL FROM ORHAN PAMUK ** Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Winner of the International IMPAC Dublin Award 'Wonderful' The Spectator 'Magnificent' Observer 'Sumptuous' New Yorker 'Unforgettable' Guardian My Name is Red is an unforgettable murder mystery, set amid the splendour of sixteenth century Istanbul, from the Nobel prizewinning author In the late 1590s, the Sultan secretly commissions a great book: a celebration of his life and his empire, to be illuminated by the best artists of the day - in the European manner. At a time of violent fundamentalism, however, this is a dangerous proposition. Even the illustrious circle of artists are not allowed to know for whom they are working. But when one of the miniaturists is murdered, their Master has to seek outside help. Did the dead painter fall victim to professional rivalry, romantic jealousy or religious terror? With the Sultan demanding an answer within three days, perhaps the clue lies somewhere in the half-finished pictures . . . Orhan Pamuk is one of the world's leading contemporary novelists and in My Name is Red, he fashioned an unforgettable tale of suspense, and an artful meditation on love and deception.

The institution of town meeting, the beauty of the landscape, and the enduring qualities of the architecture all give the New England town the power to shape the identity of its inhabitants--in a good way. This premise is put on trial--and to a vote--in Whisper My Name, the third novel in Hebert's Darby Chronicles. The story unfolds as seen through the eyes of three men: the reporter Roland LaChance, the farmer Avalon Hillary, and the founder of a land trust, Raphael "Reggie" Salmon. Magnus Mall, a national corporation, wants to buy the Hillary farm and transform the property into a mall to serve western New Hampshire and eastern Vermont. The aging Hillary is torn between the traditions of his family and "the thought of the money." LaChance is not only chasing down leads in his reportage on the mall--he's chasing down the story behind his own origins. Along the way he falls in love with Sheila "Soapy" Rayno, an aphasic girl from Darby whose origins are equally mysterious. As usual, the Jordan clan plays a pivotal role in this rousing tale of greed, power, and lust. This third novel in the Darby Chronicles will appeal to anyone interested in the clash of cultures in small-town America.

In five sections—Childhood, Migration, Half/First Generation, Return, and Future—the thirty-three contributors to this anthology write movingly, often hauntingly, of their lives in Haiti and the United States. Their dyaspora, much like a butterfly's fluctuating path, is a shifting landscape in which there is much travel between two worlds, between their place of origin and their adopted land. This compilation of essays and poetry brings together Haitian-Americans of different generations and backgrounds, linking the voices for whom English is a first language and others whose dreams will always be in French and Kreyòl. Community activists, scholars, visual artists and filmmakers join renowned journalists, poets, novelists and memoirists to produce a poignant portrayal of lives in transition. Edwidge Danticat, in her powerful introduction, pays tribute to Jean Dominique, a sometime participant in the Haitian dyaspora and a recent martyr to Haiti's troubled politics, and the many members of the dyaspora who refused to be silenced. Their stories confidently and passionately illustrate the joys and heartaches, hopes and aspirations of a relatively new group of immigrants belonging to two countries that have each at times maligned and embraced them.

The Miniature World of Ramona Robinson By Dr. Helen Ramirez After losing her parents in a car accident, Ramona, a child with abundant energy and imagination, moves in with her stern, elderly grandmother. Constantly bullied at school, friendless and lonely Ramona stumbles upon a world of magic and adventure as she plays by the stream near her school where she finds solace. Oliver the spider, Eva the queen bee, Rafael the mouse, Michelangelo the overgrown butterfly, a maternal mother ladybug named Lady Red, and many other talking critters befriend Ramona on her visits. More and more, Ramona finds herself cutting class to go to the stream, where she finds love and acceptance among her newfound friends who are always there when she needs them. They journey to many places and meet many different animals as Oliver shrinks Ramona to miniature size during their playtime. Back at home and at school, everything seems to be going wrong for Ramona. Oliver, woven into the curls behind Ramona’s ear, tags along with her during her schooldays and whispers advice to her from his hiding spot on how to treat others, deal with bullies, and forgive and show compassion to others. He also stresses to her the importance of heeding her grandmother’s advice. “We should find what makes us happy, and then use it to do something good and lasting for the world,” Oliver advises her. Ramona finds herself taking self-defense classes from an ant sergeant and singing lessons from a ladybug choir. Accepted among her miniature friends and no longer a lonely outcast, Ramona exhibits great courage and strength in the face of danger from snakes and large birds who seek to harm her and her friends. Ramona is invincible as her friends give her the confidence to face her fears and discover her true talents. Ramona begins to go to church to learn from the choir. The sermons inspire her to be kinder to others, especially the children at school who treated her badly. Ramona begins to be noticed by teachers and some classmates, finally in a positive way. She even befriends another girl at her school and introduces her to Oliver and the others. Ramona finds that she’s gifted in many things. But the greatest gift of all, she finds, is the unconditional love of a true friend. This delightfully spun tale will touch your heart, and it will certainly make you think twice before smashing that spider on the wall!

A Tale of Love and Adventure Butterfly Love is an allegory about love, especially the Love that abides in the meadow of a humble heart. The author employs a host of endearing characters to tell the previously untold story of a flock of Monarch butterflies as they journey from the mountains in the south to the fragrant meadows of the far north. Although Butterfly Love is faithfully patterned after the annual migration of Monarch butterflies, beginning in the mountains of Mexico and spreading across the north American continent, Butterfly Love is really about the journey of life. It’s about Love and lovely hearts, the trials and tribulations we encounter along the way, and the wonderful personalities that make life worth living. The Butterfly Love story, and the inimitable characters who artfully divulge the wonderful world of Butterfly Love, present themes of wisdom, adversity, courage, duty, friendship, tradition, adventure, and romance. Butterfly Love is destined to entertain and inspire a diverse array of audiences. The story is zany enough to entertain the youngest of hearts, but sufficiently imbued with meaning and drama to engage readers of all ages. Join the Butterbean Flock as they spread the gift of Butterfly Love across the land and fill every heart with peace and beauty, the ancient sign of the Monarch.

Depicting the painful start-and-stop process, which is an inevitable part of humankind’s quest for a more enlightened world, BRUSHED by the BUTTERFLY’S WINGS presents the first three decades of the Twentieth Century as a complex period in which a visionary few are beginning to see the errancy of an unjust society and its retentive belief systems. Set in the Southern-most foothills of the Appalachians, it is a fictional account of those few, of the circumstances that propelled them and the resistance that they met; a story of human courage, which pits family member against family member and an idealistic minority against a complacent majority who can see neither a reason for nor the irreversibility of a restlessness that seethes beneath a facade of false civility on the part of some and painful acquiescence on the part of others. A must-read for anyone interested in the deterrent effects of a world more comfortable with the supposed wisdom of traditionalism than with new conceptual realities and the changing paradigms that accompany them.
