कोई 50 साल पहले 19 वर्षीया इतालवी छात्रा सोनिया माइनो की भेंट एक युवा भारतीय छात्र राजीव गांधी से हुई जब दोनों ही कैम्ब्रिज में अध्ययन कर रहे थे। सोनिया का जन्म, तूरीन नामक एक छोटे शहर के एक साधारण से परिवार में हुआ, जहां उनके पिता अपनी तीनों पुत्रियों को कड़े अनुशासन में रखते। यह पिता के लिए बहुत ही तकलीफ की बात रही कि उनकी संकोची स्वभाव की मंझली बेटी एक ऐसे पुरुष से प्रेम कर बैठीं, जो भारत के सबसे शक्तिशाली परिवार से संबंध रखता था। इस प्रकार एक ऐसी प्रेम कहानी का जन्म हुआ, जो सबसे अनोखा था। एक बेलौस और जिंदादिल इतालवी लड़की को मजबूरन राजनीति की फ़ीकी और उदास जिंदगी का हिस्सा बनना पड़ा। यह पुस्तक सोनिया के आत्मीय मित्रों तथा सहकर्मियों से प्राप्त सूचना एवं स्रोतों पर आधारित है जो बताती है कि किस प्रकार सोनिया अपने साहस, ईमानदारी और समर्पण के बल पर दुनिया के सबसे बड़े लोकतांत्रिक देश में एक नेता के रूप में उभरीं। उनके शांतिपूर्ण बचपन से ले कर आवेगयुक्त प्रेम प्रसंग तक, और एक घरेलू बहू से एकमात्र भारतीय राजनेता बनने की कहानी है। 'द रेड साड़ी’ एक ऐसी असाधारण महिला की कथा है जिसने प्रधानमंत्री पद को भी ठुकरा दिया हो और उसके घर—परिवार व बेनाम सपनों को नियति ने कुचल कर रख दिया। यह पुस्तक बांग्लादेश युद्ध, आपातकाल, ऑपरेशन ब्ल्यू स्टार तथा आधुनिक भारतीय इतिहास को नया रूप देने वाली घटनाओं की पृष्ठभूमि में प्रसिद्ध नेहरू—गांधी परिवार के जीवन की जीवनशैली का सजीव चित्रण भी करती हैं। लेखक जेवियर मोरो ने एक अन्वेषक के रूप में, ऐसी सीधी—साधी नवयुवती की सच्ची कहानी लिखी है, जिसे भारतीय राजनीति के जटिल व खतरनाक परिस्थितियों का सामना करना पड़ा। वे एक ऐसे परिवार की साजिशों से घिरी रहीं, जिसे धिक्कारने के साथ—साथ सराहा भी जाता था। यही कारण है कि यह पुस्तक अपनी रोचकता के साथ ही ऐतिहासिक घटनाओं का आईना भी है।

Kishanlal's luxurious apartment seems to Nilanjana to be a gilded cage, and she feels stifled within its friendless confines. Her marriage, where she functions as little more than a housekeeper and a sex object, is far from fulfilling and Nilanjana looks desperately for a way out of the boredom and depression that threaten to engulf her life. It is at this point that she meets Benoir Dupont, a blond, blue-eyed handsome Frenchman, and is swept off her feet. Benoir introduces Nilanjana to the streets, the cafes and the art galleries of Paris. In her passionate, sexually liberating relationship with Benoir, she finally begins to have an inkling of her own desires. The relationship ends when Nilanjana realizes that Benoir's first priority is himself and not the woman he loves, and that her need for him has ended.

Winner of the Jnanpith and Sahitya Akademi Awards. The story of Yayati is perhaps one of the most intriguing and fascinating episodes of Mahabharata. Yayati was a great scholar and one of the noblest rulers of olden times. He followed the shastras and was devoted to the welfare of his subjects. Even the King of Gods, Indra, held him in high esteem. Married to seductively beautiful Devyani, in love with her maid Sharmishtha, and father of five sons from two women, yet Yayati unabashedly declares, 'My lust for pleasure is unsatisfied...'. His quest for the carnal continued, sparing not even his youngest son, and exchanging his old age for his son's youth...

The expression 'femme fatale' could have been coined for Barbara Skelton. She had many admirers - Peter Quennell, Feliks Topolski, Cyril Connolly, King Farouk, George Weidenfeld, Derek Jackson, the list is not exhaustive - some of whom she married. Tears Before Bedtime and Weep No More were first published separately in 1987 and 1989; they then appeared in one paperback volume in 1993. It is in this form they are being reissued in Faber Finds. As Jeremy Lewis, her literary executor, puts it these memoirs 'combine waspishness and wit in equal measure. She had a keen eye for the absurd, and a ruthless ability to skewer friends and foes alike with an exact and colourful turn of phrase ...' 'Uniquely savage memoirs of rackety highbrow life ... One feels Balzac is the novelist who would best do justice to all this in fictional form.' Anthony Powell 'Provides some of the funniest reading I can remember.' Auberon Waugh, Independent 'The two volumes together make a memorable portrait. She deserves to have her likeness preserved and by a writer as good as herself.' Frank Kermode, Guardian

Bilim ve Ötesi Dünyanın minik efendileri "Bazen bahçede onları görüyorum." "Çok büyük siyah bir karınca gördüm." "Tatlı birşey bulduklarında çevresinde sürüler halinde toplanıyorlar." "Kanatlı karıncalar bazen erkek, bazen dişidirler." "Kızıl karıncalar, siyah karıncalar, sarı karıncalar, büyük ve küçük karıncalar vardır..." Karıncalar hakkında söylenebilecek şeyler bu gibi şeylerdir aslında bu böceğe benzeyen ama böcek olmayan yaratıklar hakkında çok az şey bilinmektedir. Karıncalar evlerimize geldiklerinde bıktırıcıdırlar, yiyeceklerimizi kirletirler, zarar verirler, kumaşları, derileri veya tahtaları yerler veya deler geçerler. Ahşap yapıları çürütüp, yuvalar yaparlar. Bazen karıncalar tarafından sokuluruz, canımız yanar ama saldırgan değildirler. Çeşitli isimlerle adlandırılırlar; firavun, hayalet, marangoz, ateş, çılgın, hırsız, kocakafa ve akrobat karıncalar gibi... Karıncalar öteki böceklerden ayrıdırlar, bellerinin inceliği, bir veya iki mafsallı olmaları onlara özgündür. Eklemli antenleri vardır, ikisi önde ve büyük olan ikisi da arkada ve küçük olan dört kanatlı türleri vardır. İnsanlar bazen onları termitlerle karıştırırlar oysa termitlerin belleri kalındır ve eşit boyda dört kanatları vardır.

For many, "Great Swan" is Lex's greatest work -- a true classic. The sanctity, delightful playfulness, wisdom, power, devotion, and spiritual intensity of one of the most inspiring spiritual teachers of all time permeate every page. Blissfully unconventional, Ramakrishna (1836-1886) was a prime mover in the transmission of Eastern mystical practices into the West's spiritual renaissance. "Great Swan" may well be the next best thing to a personal meeting with him.

RCMP Constable Danutia Dranchuk is investigating a mysterious death at Sitting Lady Falls. The evidence she gathers points to three separate stories, leaving her with more questions than answers. Is this murder connected to two earlier killings of Aboriginal women? Are all three the work of the same killer? Some of the details are hitting a little too close to home, and Danutia is forced to examine her friendship with forensics head Corporal Surinder Sharma and his family. Deftly woven into Danutia’s investigation are the stories of two other characters. Parolee Ritchie Taylor fears that the unidentified body from the waterfall is his estranged daughter’s, who was supposed to meet him after his release from prison, but never showed. Awkward busboy Trav can’t seem to help behaving suspiciously. Author Kay Stewart pulls the threads together in an unexpected and dramatic resolution at Sitting Lady Falls.
