What was it like to be a child of the British Raj in India, and to leave an often exciting and exotic Indian childhood in what must have seemed like a golden age, for the duration of a destructive war? And then to return to an India which had changed radically, often tragically, and for the good? What was it really like to be part of expatriate life behind the scenes of Paul Scott's `Jewel in the Crown'?_x000D_ _x000D_ In `Last Children of the Raj', Laurence Fleming, like Mark Tully, one of the `last children', brings together a vivid and delicately-etched collection of individual memories of children born between 1914 and 1940 who spent their childhood and adolescence in British India and the Princely States. Here is a unique entry-point into British and Indian cultural and social history during the last and momentous period of the British Raj - the period of world war, Partition, accompanied by such violent and tragic blood-letting, and the birth of independent India and Pakistan. _x000D_ _x000D_ Here are details of family traditions with deep roots in the Indian sub-continent, of going to school in India and back in Britain, of deep friendships and relationships with British and Indian children and with those who served the Raj. There are accounts of huge journeys and adventures available only in Indian childhoods. Here there is so much to be gleaned about fathers' careers, including the `Heaven-born' - the Indian Civil Service - or members of the professional and technical services who mapped and developed India, or about fathers in the Indian Army and British army in India, or in commerce and industry. There is an awareness, perhaps beneath the surface, of questions of colour and race. _x000D_ _x000D_ Mark Tully writes movingly in his introduction that although `our parents lived as a separate race they were Anglo-Indians, in that they were touched by India'. And returning to India, immediately after the Second World War or later, was to `come home'.

A riveting novel about the aftermath of a brutal murder of three teenage girls, written in incantatory prose "that's as fine as any being written by an American author today." (Ben Fountain) One late autumn evening in a Texas town, two strangers walk into an ice cream shop shortly before closing time. They bind up the three teenage girls who are working the counter, set fire to the shop, and disappear. SEE HOW SMALL tells the stories of the survivors--family, witnesses, and suspects--who must endure in the wake of atrocity. Justice remains elusive in their world, human connection tenuous. Hovering above the aftermath of their deaths are the three girls. They watch over the town and make occasional visitations, trying to connect with and prod to life those they left behind. "See how small a thing it is that keeps us apart," they say. A master of compression and lyrical precision, Scott Blackwood has surpassed himself with this haunting, beautiful, and enormously powerful new novel.

The Girl from Sighet a memoir In 1944, Hindi Friedman's idyllic childhood in the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains abruptly ended when German troops invaded her beloved hometown of Sighet. This memoir, written in the style of a novel, chronicles Hindi and her family's confinement in the town's ghetto, their transport in a suffocating cattlecar to Auschwitz, and the subsequent heroic struggle to survive the inhumane conditions of the concentration camp. After Russian soldiers liberated Hindi and her sister from a labor camp in the Czech Republic, the young girls immediately faced a harsh new reality. Their liberators were now the enemy. Weak and hungry, the girls escape by foot over the Czech mountains to avoid the savagery of the Russian soldiers. Two years after the war ended, Hindi was again on the run. Trapped in communist Romania, she escaped into Austria and eventually to her new home in America. This epic memoir spans seventy years, transporting the reader from shtetl life through war-torn Europe to the American suburbs of the fifties and on to the present, allowing us to partake in a remarkable journey from death and despair to hope and rebirth.

What is contemporary women’s writing in Hindi all about? How far does it reach beyond the commonly perceived limits of feminine experience or feminist ideology? From legendary writer Mannu Bhandari’s The Cremation Ground which satirises notions of eternal love, to Alpana Mishra’s superbly crafted Homeless in the Cantonment, a devastating chronicle of army life, these stories dissect numerous aspects of human existence with a startling incisiveness. Mridula Garg’s exploration of an unusual relationship in The Second One exposes the hypocrisy rife in so-called ‘decent’ middle-class families while Mamta Kalia brings empathy and humour into her depiction of a poignant human situation in The Agony of an Artiste. Political issues are raised by Chitra Mudgal, Chandrakanta and Vandana Rag. While Kavita focuses on the new dilemmas that challenge women today, veteran writer Rajee Seth presents a picture of the daily battle of a working woman with empathy and insight. Sexual obsession is explored too, from both the female and male point of view by Manisha Kulshreshtha, and by Pratyaksha in her sensual narrative of infatuation, The Hunt. Published by Zubaan.
