About the lecture: Dr. Miller will discuss her inquiry into the material and ideological conditions in which sexualized attacks on men in conflict are currently being made worthy of attention and redress in human rights and humanitarian circles. For evidence of emerging visibility, she tracks UN Security Council resolutions, the work of international human rights NGOs, and the policies of international humanitarian aid agencies responding to sexual violence. Contemporary social science research -- and excavations of older materials -- reveal that the genders of the victims of rape and other forms of sexual assaults are greatly variable. Indeed, the very occurrence of sexual assault itself in conflict appears to vary widely. However, the newer narratives and policy shifts attending to the 'rape of men' in conflict seem to be drafting behind the now dominant storyline on the omnipresent rape of women in conflict. However, in some cases in this trailing mode, men as victims are elided to, or in competition with, the health and rights narratives, policies and interventions addressing the 'rape of women' in conflict. In inquiring into the reasons for this new story of sexual violence and the synergies, disjunctions and conflicts over the various gendered theories of rape when men are produced as ‘victims’, she argues that the eclipsing of ‘gendered harm’ by sexual harm, the salience of conflict as a preeminent site of sexual harm and the still vexed value of consent (now extended to same-sex sexual behavior in public health and international rights law) each play a role in the current emerging visibility of men as victims. Key elements of this story also include changing practices and players in the worlds of health-oriented humanitarianism, human rights and law, all three of which have become key domains for both authorizing and constraining claims for sexual harm in late 20th and early 21st century.

To listen to more of Diana Athill’s stories, go to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVV0r6CmEsFxBbJTCFH6VOhE8tBYFuoVY Diana Athill (1917-2019) was a British literary editor whose publishing career began when she helped André Deutsch establish his company. Following the publication of her memoirs, she came to be hailed as an author in her own right. [Listener: Christopher Sykes] TRANSCRIPT: Myra Hindley came into my life because… now how was it? The firm was approached by David Astor. David Astor rang up André and said… you know, he was very interested in her and he used to go and see her quite a lot. And said that he and a man called Timms, I think, who was a prison chaplain, had been working with her. And they both felt that it was very important for her to get to the very bottom of what she'd done, for her soul's sake, as it were. And would we consider me working with her on her autobiography. And if so, could we come and meet him and Simms at his house and talk about it? But my first and instant feeling was 'no', and I think André's really was, too, but still we both thought it was too interesting not to go and talk. And so we went and talked. Timms was quite… I mean he was a chaplain and he was, like a good Christian man, believing that she could perhaps save her soul by total penitence. You know, proper penitence. She had admitted guilt, but she had always had, sort of, saving clauses, you know. That she'd been young and that she'd been frightened and that he had hypnotised her, more or less. [CS] Ian Brady? Brady, yes. David, I think, thought that probably, as a psychiatric… more psychiatric approach, that it would be very good for her, that there she was in prison for the rest of her life, that it would be sort of be a help to her, and it would help all of us to understand evil. Well, really what I thought was, A: that I didn't see why that it would really save her soul, probably. And B: that one doesn't understand evil beyond a certain point. You… and, you know, knowing more about it doesn't really help. It just gets on being more and more mystifying. But, on the other hand, my curiosity was so much aroused at the idea of perhaps going and seeing her and talking to her, that I… what really… they then gave me the first chapter or two that she'd worked on, which was impressive. It was her childhood, and up to the point where she first met Ian Brady. And she wrote well, she wrote simply, she was obviously an intelligent woman. She could clearly… absolutely could clearly explain, make one understand how this working-class girl who was very conscious of being more intelligent than any of her relations, and had rather a chip on her shoulder about not being much educated, gets a job. And there's one very peculiar man at the job, who everyone's a little bit scared of, and he's clearly brilliantly intelligent and he's read millions of books, and he takes her up. She's 19. And makes her his friend and starts lending her books. You can understand why she was deeply flattered by this and excited by it. And you can understand, up to a point, that his whole idea that his scorn for the rest of the world, how one ought to be above the sort of moral considerations of boring, ordinary people. At the age of 19, you know, it was quite seductive. And all that she described very well. But when she began to come to the point where it actually began to happen, she ground to a halt, not unnaturally, and wanted help. Well, I went there. I saw her. We were alone in the room together, the wardress was sitting outside an open door, snoozing, I think, most of the time. I saw her for an hour, we talked. She was an extremely interesting woman to talk to, because it was extraordinary that you could have been in prison, as she had, I think it was 22 years at that stage, and be so little apparently institutionalised. She was on tranquilisers. You could tell that at first, because her voice was a little bit slow and careful, and Timms told me afterwards. I said, 'Was she on tranquilisers?' He said, 'Yes, she has been on tranquilisers for quite a bit, since she volunteered to help'. I do remember that. She volunteered and was taken out of the prison up to the moors to try and find one of the children's bodies, which never has been found. And that was a very, very disturbing thing for her, and she became quite unable to sleep, and they put her back on tranquilisers after that. But towards the end, of course, the tranquilisers were wearing off and she was talking more fluently. We talked about writing. We talked about the boredom of being in prison. We talked about what she called 'my old men', which was Longford and David Astor, who she laughed at in a scornful way. We could have gone on talking much longer. She was interesting to talk to. And in a funny way, I liked her. [...] Read the full transcript at [https://www.webofstories.com/play/diana.athill/66]

Alice Ann Munro is a Canadian author writing in English. Munro's work has been described as having revolutionized the architecture of short stories, especially in its tendency to move forward and backward in time. Her stories embed more than announce, reveal more than parade. Munro's fiction is most often set in her native Huron County in southwestern Ontario. Her stories explore human complexities in an uncomplicated prose style. Munro's writing has established her as "one of our greatest contemporary writers of fiction," or, as Cynthia Ozick put it, "our Chekhov." Awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature for her work as "master of the contemporary short story", and the 2009 Man Booker International Prize for her lifetime body of work, she is also a three-time winner of Canada's Governor General's Award for fiction. Life and work Early life Munro was born Alice Ann Laidlaw in Wingham, Ontario. Her father, Robert Eric Laidlaw, was a fox and mink farmer, and her mother, Anne Clarke Laidlaw (née Chamney), was a schoolteacher. Munro began writing as a teenager, publishing her first story, "The Dimensions of a Shadow," in 1950 while studying English and journalism at the University of Western Ontario under a two-year scholarship. During this period she worked as a waitress, a tobacco picker, and a library clerk. In 1951, she left the university, where she had been majoring in English since 1949, to marry fellow student James Munro. They moved to Dundarave, West Vancouver, for James's job in a department store. In 1963, the couple moved to Victoria, where they opened Munro's Books, which still operates.

All Bloopers and Gags in The Complete Season 1 of Riverdale! _ About ℝiverdale: As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same. Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music and not follow in his dad’s footsteps despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel). Now Archie has no one to mentor him, certainly not singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — as is his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse). Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she’s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves, which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice (Mädchen Amick), aren’t the only thing holding her back. When a new student, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), arrives in town from New York with her mother Hermione (Marisol Nichols), there’s an undeniable spark between Veronica and Archie, even though Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)... Riverdale’s Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows. _ Join The ℝiverdale Family and Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCttRug-iudQuDgdFRLfm4Qw _ Watch ℝiverdale: ➤On Netflix https://www.netflix.com/vn/title/80133311 ➤Every Week On The CW (9/8c Wednesdays) http://www.cwtv.com/shows/riverdale/view-in-app/ _ Connect with ℝiverdale Online: Learn more about RIVERDALE : http://cwtv.com/shows/riverdale Like RIVERDALE on FACEBOOK:https://www.facebook.com/CWRiverdale Follow RIVERDALE on TWITTER: https://twitter.com/CW_Riverdale Follow RIVERDALE on INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/thecwriverd... _ [TAGS] Bughead Betty and Jughead All Betty and Jughead Scenes - Riverdale Season 1 Riverdale 1x06 Betty and Jughead's first kiss Riverdale 1x13 Betty and Jughead almost have sex Riverdale 1x13 Betty and Jughead makeout Riverdale 1x13 Betty and Jughead say "I Love You" Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart Cole sprouse and Kj Apa lili reinhart cole sprouse sprouseheart varchie camila mendes kj apa veronica and archie riverdale season 1 - gag reel all bloopers

https://bookthug.ca/shop/books/conversations-with-canadians-by-lee-maracle/ On her first book tour at the age of 26, Lee Maracle was asked a question from the audience, one she couldn’t possibly answer at that moment. But she has been thinking about it ever since. As time has passed, she has been asked countless similar questions, all of them too big to answer, but not too large to contemplate. These questions, which touch upon subjects such as citizenship, segregation, labour, law, prejudice and reconciliation (to name a few), are the heart of My Conversations with Canadians. In prose essays that are both conversational and direct, Maracle seeks not to provide any answers to these questions she has lived with for so long. Rather, she thinks through each one using a multitude of experiences she’s had as a First Nations leader, a woman, a mother, and grandmother over the course of her life. Lee Maracle’s My Conversations with Canadians presents a tour de force exploration into the writer’s own history and a reimagining of the future of our nation. https://bookthug.ca/shop/books/conversations-with-canadians-by-lee-maracle/

http://ileach.co.uk/norma/ Highland Scottish Travellers, while perhaps one of Europe's last nomadic people, are not Roma Gypsies. They are distinct from them ethnically, culturally and linguistically. They are indigenous, Gaelic-speaking people. In Scottish Gaelic they are known as the Ceàrdannan ("the Craftsmen"). The word tinker itself comes from the Gaelic "tinceard" or tinsmith. Poetically known as the Summer Walkers, they also are referred to as traivellers, traivellin' fowk and nawkers. Summer Walkers are closely associated with the Northwest Highlands, and many of the families carry clan names like Macfie, Stewart, MacDonald, Cameron, Williamson and Macmillan. They would pitch their bow tents at the edge of villages and earn money there as tinsmiths, hawkers, horse dealers or pearl fishermen. Many found seasonal employment on farms, e.g. at berry picking or during harvest. They also brought entertainment and news to the country folk. The Highland Scottish Traveller community has a long history in Scotland with records going back to the 12th century. They share a similar heritage with, although distinct from, the Irish Travellers. As with their Irish counterparts, there are several theories regarding the origin of Scottish Highland Travellers, one being that they are descended from the Picts. Other theories are that they were excommunicated clergy, or families fleeing the Highland potato famine or the pre-Norman-Invasion. http://celticanamcara.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/scottish-tinkers-and-travellers.html Irish travellers, long derided as anti-social itinerants rather than "true" Gypsies, are an ancient people in their own right, researchers say. Academics preparing for the world's first symposium on the travellers' mysterious past, claim they could even be the last surviving remnants of a pre-Celtic Ireland, with their own distinctive language called "Cant" or "Gammon". Commonly known as "tinkers" because of their tin-smithing past, Irish travelling families have never enjoyed the romantic associations of Romany Gypsies. They now bear the brunt of complaints about illegal encampments, a concern that the Tory leader, Michael Howard, has tried to turn into an election issue with adverts in The Independent on Sunday and other papers. Research by an Irish socio-linguist, Dr Alice Binchy, suggests that more than half the surviving Cant/Gammon lexicon may be derived from a long-lost language spoken in Ireland before the Celts arrived. "A partially pre-Celtic origin would have substantial implications for the way we look not only at traveller history, but at early Irish history as a whole," said Dr Binchy, a delegate at a conference of linguists, historians and anthropologists to be held at the University of Limerick. Pre-Celtic Ireland started to disappear 3,000 years ago. Irish travellers may first have been recorded in the 13th and 14th centuries. Surnames suggest that many are descended from medieval poets - the Irish bards. Others were metal workers. Significantly, both were separate "castes". It is probable that numbers greatly increased in the late 16th and early to mid-17th centuries, when English occupation forces dispossessed the Irish aristocracy. At some stage, the newly enlarged community appears to have begun to develop a secret form of verbal communication. Many academics - though not all - believe that words were altered, with syllables inverted and letters transposed, to make it impossible for enemies to understand. The language remains a source of dispute, with some scholars arguing that any link with the pre-Celtic era is unlikely. But most accept that travellers date back at least to medieval or Tudor times. "Research demonstrates that we are a people with a unique and turbulent history and underlines how resilient we have had to be to survive," said Martin Collins, assistant director of the Pavee Point Travellers Centre in Dublin. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/academics-suggest-irish-travellers-are-remnant-of-preceltic-culture-6149659.html

Hector Hugh Munro (December 18, 1870 – November 13, 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, and also frequently as H. H. Munro, was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirised Edwardian society and culture. He is considered a master of the short story and often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll, and Kipling, he himself influenced A. A. Milne, Noël Coward, and P. G. Wodehouse. Beside his short stories (which were first published in newspapers, as was customary at the time, and then collected into several volumes), he wrote a full-length play, The Watched Pot, in collaboration with Charles Maude; two one-act plays; a historical study, The Rise of the Russian Empire, the only book published under his own name; a short novel, The Unbearable Bassington; the episodic The Westminster Alice (a Parliamentary parody of Alice in Wonderland), and When William Came, subtitled A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns, a fantasy about a future German invasion of Britain. Born in Akyab, Burma (now known as Myanmar) when it was still part of the British Empire, Hector Hugh Munro was the son of Charles Augustus Munro and Mary Frances Mercer (1843–72). Mary was the daughter of Rear Admiral Samuel Mercer; and her nephew, Cecil William Mercer, became a famous writer as Dornford Yates. Charles Munro was an Inspector-General for the Burmese Police. In 1872, on a home visit to England, Mary was charged by a cow; and the shock caused her to miscarry. She never recovered and soon died. Charles Munro sent his children, including two-year-old Hector, to England, where they were brought up by their grandmother and aunts in a strict puritanical household. Munro was educated at Pencarwick School in Exmouth, Devon and at Bedford School. On a few occasions, when he retired, Charles travelled with Hector and his sister to fashionable European spas and tourist resorts. In 1893, Hector followed his father into the Indian Imperial Police, where he was posted to Burma (like George Orwell a generation later). Two years later, having contracted malaria, he resigned and returned to England. At the start of World War I, although 43 and officially over-age, Munro refused a commission and joined 2nd King Edward's Horse as an ordinary trooper, later transferring to 22nd Battalion, the Royal Fusiliers, where he rose to the rank of lance sergeant. More than once he returned to the battlefield when officially still too sick or injured. In November 1916, when sheltering in a shell crater near Beaumont-Hamel, France, during the Battle of the Ancre he was killed by a German sniper. His last words, according to several sources, were Put that bloody cigarette out! After his death, his sister Ethel destroyed most of his papers and wrote her own account of their childhood. Munro was homosexual but at that time in the U.K., sexual activity between men was a crime. The Cleveland Street scandal (1889), followed by the downfall of Oscar Wilde (1895), meant that, that side of his life had to be secret. Politically, Munro was a Tory and somewhat reactionary in his views. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was written sometimes between 1260–1180 BC, and you could say that the 'Odyssey' is the prequel to the 'Iliad', also written by Homer. The poem is written in dactylic hexameter and it's set during the Trojan War. This specific edition is translated by the American poet, critic and translator Robert Fitzgerald. It's also introduced by Gregory Nagy, contains selected bibliography and information about the introducer and translator. The book is bound in a brown cloth with acid-free neutral, cream-wove paper. The paper is somewhat thin, but I'd say it has the standard thickness for EL books. I'm very happy with this edition and it has everything you used to expect from Everyman's Library editions! Thank you so much for watching. If you want more EL Collection videos then make sure to like and subscribe! Have a lovely day! [About my channel: This channel is about books, BUT with a little twist compared to other Booktubers! I actually cover the physical aspect of books compared to the content which the author writes. On my channel you will mainly see editions from the Folio Society, Everyman's Library, Deluxe editions by Harper Collins, Centipede Press books (in the future), small press books (in the future), letterpress books (in the future) and limited editions! I usually go through the binding (is the book bound in cloth, buckram, paper, leather... etc), the paper (is it acid-free? Thickness? Overall quality?), illustrations (if the book has any), is it sewn or glud(?)... Things like that, I think you get it! :-) I think book publishers are pretty bad at giving us enough information about the books we buy online. Not everyone have the chance to see the books they buy beforehand. Especially not since the departure of the open bookshop that the Folio Society had. I hope you will get help from my videos! I love helping others and books plus reading is one of my main interests and passions in life. My "plan" for my library is to focus on "classic" literature, but I still want a well rounded collection, everything from ancient greek works (as seen in this video) to fantasy stories by Neil Gaiman. I really like gothic and Victorian literature. My favourite authors from the 19th-century include Mary Shelley, Anthony Trollope, Dostoyevsky. As for the 20th-century; then I'd say H.P. Lovecraft, Arthur C. Clarke, J.R.R. Tolkien and George Orwell. But yeah, my favourite genres are gothic, Victorian, science-fiction, horror, historical fiction... I have so far not read much non-fiction so I don't really know if I would enjoy it or not. I'm sure I'd find history and biographies to be of my liking. My main inspiration to start this channel was another book collecting channel called Leather Library. But sadly, Leather Library has not been uploading any videos in a long time, especially not Folio Society Reviews. So I am pretty much the only, "living", book collecting channel, together with BookCravings. Which of course is quite sad and it does feel a bit lonely, haha!] But you all should definitely check out BookCravings!

*if you haven't watched part one, I suggest you do so. This video's information is based on the short story Boys & Girls by Alice Munro. All the characters that were interview were created by Alice Munro. The interveiwers personalities and characteristics were created by Jessica VanAlstine and myself. Jessica and I hate doing essays and really love to do media projects so when Mr.Bertrand said "you can do a media project with a partner, aswell" Jessica and I automatically thought to do a video with eachother for this assignment. This video was made for my grade 12 English Literature course. I hope that you enjoy it, and if you do.. you may want to comment? rate? subscribe? Maybe even watch the rest of my videos and suggest them to your friends.. I don't know. I'll leave the choice in your hands. :)

Download http://www.audible.co.uk/pd/ref=sr_1_5?asin=B004EVX4MW&qid=1312633488&sr=1-5 Sredni Vashtar" by Hector Hugh Munro -SAKI Sredni Vashtar is a short story written by Saki (Hector Hugh Munro) between 1900 and 1914 and initially published in his book The Chronicles of Clovis. It has been adapted for opera, film and television. The story concerns a 10-year-old boy called Conradin, who lives with his strict cousin and guardian, Mrs. De Ropp. Conradin rebels against her and invents a new religion for himself, which centres around idolising a polecat-ferret he calls Sredni Vashtar; a vengeful, merciless god. Conradin keeps the polecat hidden in a cage in the garden shed, and worships the idol in secret. The story comes to a climax when his cousin sets out to discover his god. Hector Hugh Munro (December 18, 1870 November 13, 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, was a British writer, whose witty and sometimes macabre stories satirized Edwardian society and culture. He is considered a master of the short story and is often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. His tales feature delicately drawn characters and finely judged narratives. "The Open Window" may be his most famous, with a closing line ("Romance at short notice was her speciality") that has entered the lexicon. In addition to his short stories (which were first published in newspapers, as was the custom of the time, and then collected into several volumes) he also wrote a full-length play, The Watched Pot, in collaboration with Charles Maude; two one-act plays; a historical study, The Rise of the Russian Empire, the only book published under his own name; a short novel, The Unbearable Bassington; the episodic The Westminster Alice (a Parliamentary parody of Alice in Wonderland), and When William Came, subtitled A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns, a fantasy about a future German invasion of Britain. He was influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll, and Kipling, and himself influenced A. A. Milne, Noël Coward, and P. G. Wodehouse. produced by Robert Nichol copyright VOX AUDIO

Rothschild Collections at Waddesdon Manor As a family, the Rothschilds were the greatest collectors of the 19th century, seeking the highest quality of workmanship and with a keen sense of historical importance. The houses that they built, the interiors they created and the magnificent collections within them became known internationally as the ‘goût Rothschild’. Waddesdon is one of the rare survivors of that splendour. Waddesdon’s internationally famous collection has been formed principally by four members of the family: Baron Ferdinand (1839-1898) who built Waddesdon and created the interiors, his sister Alice (1847-1922), their cousin Edmond (1845-1934) and the present Lord Rothschild (b. 1936). As near contemporaries, Ferdinand, Alice and Edmond – who resided in Paris – shared similar collecting interests and often competed with one another in the auction rooms and dealers’ galleries of Europe. With their strong interest in eighteenth-century France, they each created collections that would be the envy of any of today’s museums. Ferdinand and Edmond, in particular, built lavish residences fitted out with original eighteenth-century interiors in which to show their superb works of art. Masterpieces created by the royal French porcelain manufactory of Sèvres were placed on furniture produced by the most significant French craftsmen of the eighteenth century, much of it made for the royal family and important members of the court. The floors were covered with Savonnerie carpets exclusive to the Crown and walls hung with tapestries from the royal Gobelins and Beauvais workshops on top of sumptuous silk fabrics. Paintings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by famous Dutch, Flemish and French artists subtly glowed from the walls. Baron Ferdinand also prized eighteenth-century British portraits by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Romney. Today, the collection continues to grow through the patronage of Rothschild family trusts. Additions include several superb paintings by Chardin, Labille-Guiard, Pannini and Callet, a magnificent silver dinner service made for George III and a large collection of Sèvres porcelain sculpture. Significant pieces of contemporary sculpture by Stephen Cox, Angus Fairhurst, Sarah Lucas and Richard Long, for example, can be seen in the garden and at the Windmill Hill complex that houses the Waddesdon Archive and Rothschild Foundation.

Basic analysis of the poem: https://emilyroseleonard.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/a-womans-issue-margaret-atwood/ A Women’s Issue by Margaret Atwood "The woman in the spiked device that locks around the waist and between the legs, with holes in it like a tea strainer is Exhibit A. The woman in black with a net window to see through and a four-inch wooden peg jammed up between her legs so she can’t be raped is Exhibit B. Exhibit C is the young girl dragged into the bush by the midwives and made to sing while they scrape the flesh from between her legs, then tie her thighs till she scabs over and is called healed. Now she can be married. For each childbirth they’ll cut her open, then sew her up. Men like tight women. The ones that die are carefully buried. The next exhibit lies flat on her back while eighty men a night move through her, ten an hour. She looks at the ceiling, listens to the door open and close. A bell keeps ringing. Nobody knows how she got here. You’ll notice that what they have in common is between the legs. Is this why wars are fought? Enemy territory, no man’s land, to be entered furtively, fenced, owned but never surely, scene of these desperate forays at midnight, captures and sticky murders, doctors’ rubber gloves greasy with blood, flesh made inert, the surge of your own uneasy power. This is no museum. Who invented the word love?"

Kurt Andersen discusses his new novel, True Believers, on CBS This Morning. In True Believers, Kurt Andersen—the New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed author of Heyday and Turn of the Century—delivers his most powerful and moving novel yet. Dazzling in its wit and effervescent insight, this kaleidoscopic tour de force of cultural observation and seductive storytelling alternates between the present and the 1960s—and indelibly captures the enduring impact of that time on the ways we live now. Karen Hollander is a celebrated attorney who recently removed herself from consideration for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her reasons have their roots in 1968—an episode she's managed to keep secret for more than forty years. Now, with the imminent publication of her memoir, she's about to let the world in on that shocking secret—as soon as she can track down the answers to a few crucial last questions. As junior-high-school kids back in the early sixties, Karen and her two best friends, Chuck and Alex, roamed suburban Chicago on their bikes looking for intrigue and excitement. Inspired by the exotic romance of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels, they acted out elaborate spy missions pitting themselves against imaginary Cold War villains. As friendship carries them through childhood and on to college—in a polarized late-sixties America riven by war and race as well as sex, drugs, and rock and roll—the bad guys cease to be the creatures of make-believe. Caught up in the fervor of that extraordinary and uncanny time, they find themselves swept into a dangerous new game with the highest possible stakes. Today, only a handful of people are left who know what happened. As Karen reconstructs the past and reconciles the girl she was then with the woman she is now, finally sharing pieces of her secret past with her national-security-cowboy boyfriend and Occupy-activist granddaughter, the power of memory and history and luck become clear. A resonant coming-of-age story and a thrilling political mystery, True Believers is Kurt Andersen's most ambitious novel to date, introducing a brilliant, funny, and irresistible new heroine to contemporary fiction.

(27 Apr 2016) LEAD IN A Palestinian novelist has been crowned the winner of the Booker International Prize for Arabic Fiction. Rabai al-Madhoun's book 'Destinies' explores Palestinian identities before the State of Israel was proclaimed in 1948. STORY-LINE A ballroom in Abu Dhabi, where some of the best writers in the Middle East are waiting to hear if they've won the International Prize for Arabic Fiction. The award gives writers from the Arab world the chance to gain global recognition. Six writers have been shortlisted for the prize, which is now in its ninth year. This year there were 159 entries from 18 countries. Above anything else the judges were looking for originality. "Why would I write a new novel? Because I don't want to repeat what this writer wrote and what that writer wrote but to have a special place of my own", says Chair of Judges for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction, Amina Thiban. The six entries cover topics from a dark fantasy based in post-revolution Egypt to a battle of identities in 19th century Syria. But the prize went to Palestinian writer Rabai al-Madhoun for his novel 'Destinies: Concerto of the Holocaust and the Nakba'. "I feel happy inside and I showed it. I was feeling emotional and I couldn't believe it. I was feeling that I might cry though I did have confidence that I presented something good," says al-Madhoun shortly after winning. Destinies has four parts, each representing a concerto movement. The book explores Palestinian identities before the creation of Israel as an independent country in 1948 compared to under the occupation. This is the second time al-Madhoun has been shortlisted for the prize. His novel 'The Lady from Tel Aviv' made the final six in 2010. Al-Madhoun believes the prize opens up opportunities. "The importance of this prize is significant. The significance comes with more readers, more notoriety for the book. Also more critics have access to the book," he says. Last year's competition was surrounded by controversy after the winning book was not sold in the UAE. No official reason was given for the ban. Many Arab authors and writers have even been jailed for their work. Qatari poet Muhammad Ibn al-Dheeb al-Ajami was only released in February over verses he wrote which were accused of offending his country's royal family. Egyptian author Ahmed Naji was sentenced to two years in jail by a Cairo court for publishing a novel which prosecutors said had sexually explicit sections that violated "public modesty". Amina Thiban says that prizes like these are good because they give a voice to those who are pushing boundaries. "We know that a writer cannot write about everything but believe that there are people who are trying and that requires a lot of courage. I think the Booker Prize for International Fiction has created an atmosphere where the door is open for people to experiment." Rabai al-Madhoun will receive 50,000 US dollars in prize money and a guarantee his book will be translated into English.
