  • A moving account of one manРІР‚в„ўs border crossings—both literal and figurative—by the award-winning author of Palestinian Walks, published on the fiftieth anniversary of the Six Day WarIn what has become a classic of Middle Eastern literature, Raja Shehadeh, in Palestinian Walks, wrote of his treks through the hills surrounding Ramallah over a period of three decades under IsraelРІР‚в„ўs occupation.In Where the Line Is Drawn, Shehadeh explores how occupation has affected him personally, chronicling the various crossings that he undertook into Israel over a period of forty years to visit friends and family, to enjoy the sea, to argue before the Israeli courts, and to negotiate failed peace agreements.Those forty years also saw him develop a close friendship with Henry, a Canadian Jew who immigrated to Israel at around the same time Shehadeh returned to Palestine from studying in London.

    While offering an unforgettably poignant exploration of Palestinian-Israeli relationships, Where the Line Is Drawn also provides an anatomy of friendship and an exploration of whether, in the bleakest of circumstances, it is possible for bonds to transcend political divisions.

  • A chilling, wildly original novel from a major new voice from South KoreaThe Impossible Fairy Tale is the story of two unexceptional grade-school girls.

    Mia is “lucky”—she is spoiled by her mother and, as she explains, her two fathers. She gloats over her exotic imported color pencils and won’t be denied a coveted sweater. Then there is the Child who, by contrast, is neither lucky nor unlucky. She makes so little impression that she seems not even to merit a name.At school, their fellow students, whether lucky or luckless or unlucky, seem consumed by an almost murderous rage.

    Adults are nearly invisible, and the society the children create on their own is marked by cruelty and soul-crushing hierarchies. Then, one day, the Child sneaks into the classroom after hours and adds ominous sentences to her classmatesРІР‚в„ў notebooks. About The Impossible Fairy Tale: A Novel This sinister but initially inconsequential act unlocks a series of events that end in horrible violence.But that is not the end of this eerie, unpredictable novel.

    A teacher, who is also this bookРІР‚в„ўs author, wakes from an intense dream. When she arrives at her next class, she recognizes a student: the Child, who knows about the events of the novelРІР‚в„ўs first half, which took place years earlier. Han YujooРІР‚в„ўs The Impossible Fairy Tale is a fresh and terrifying exploration of the ethics of art making and of the stinging consequences of neglect.

  • *This book was previously released under the title A Tale of Two Cities: A Readers Companion.*Youve read A Tale of Two Cities-perhaps more than once. Book The Annotated a Tale of Two Cities But what are gaols, bumpers, tocsins, farmer-generals, and the Court of Kings Bench? Where are Shooters Hill, Temple Bar, and La Force, and who on earth was Mrs. Southcott? And did all those starving French people have baguettes in mind when they wanted bread?The Annotated A Tale of Two Cities is not a literary analysis of Dickenss novel, but a source of information for the new reader, the longterm fan, and the student, about things, people, places, and events mentioned in the text.

    In 780 notes to the unabridged novel, historical author and independent scholar Susanne Alleyn explains Dickenss references to things and places familiar to 19th-century Londoners, illustrates his many literary allusions and Victorian expressions, and provides an in-depth, factual background to his gripping but often misleading depiction of the French Revolution-a period that owes much of its distorted image today to the popularity of A Tale of Two Cities itself.
