Gorilla
by . Sobhasakthi
The story of an LTTE child soldier.

Playful yet disturbing, Gorilla plunges us into the village of Kunjan Fields, in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Here, amusing local thug Gorilla runs wild and poor Rocky Raj, his son, tries to distance himself from his father's antics. Rocky Raj immerses himself in his studies, but the Tamil Eelam Movement comes to town and he becomes a child soldier. Soon, however, he is thrown out by the Movement for not following orders - then recaptured and tortured.What will be this Child soldier's fate?

Filled with characters as strange and violent as they are unforgettable - young girls with bombs concealed in their bosoms, delinquent boys, illicit liquor sellers, wily police inspectors, murderers, prostitutes, farmers, innocents ? Gorilla is a English language debut of a remarkable talent.

Shobaskthi is a Sri Lankan Tamil refugee and a former LTTE child soldier. He has written another novel, a collection of short stories, three plays and most recently a collection of non fiction pieces. Currently he lives in France, where he works as a dishwasher at fast food places from time to time.

Prizes
by Erich Segal
In Prizes, Segal brings vividly to life three very different and memorable characters in a story brimming with love and loss, discoveries and betrayals, life and death. Adam Coopersmith. He is that rare combination: a brilliant physician who truly cares for his patients. But his marriage to Antonia, an ambitious lawyer, has lost its early passion. It's not until Adam meets Anya Avilova, a Russian émigré who has tried desperately to have a child, that he falls in love for the first time...only to have his career nearly destroyed by scandal and his life endangered by something unforeseen--and far more perilous.... Sandy Raven. A researcher on the cutting edge, Sandy's devotion is matched only by his genius. Yet at the moment of his greatest discovery, he will experience his most profound betrayal. Suddenly, the family life Sandy cherishes will hang in the balance. Will he choose to live a lie or abandon his dream to seek new, more worldly prizes?...

Isabel da Costa. A child prodigy, Isabel owes all her success to her father, who pushed her to reach for the stars. Though she becomes a brilliant physicist, all the adulation in the world can't give Isabel another childhood. In the end, she will be torn between the father who has given her everything and the young man who holds the key to her happiness--until a shocking revelation explodes her world and threatens her very life....

Adam. Sandy. Isabel. For each, the Nobel Prize casts its seductive promise over their work. Two will be selected for this highest honor; one of them will not live to receive it. But as they pursue the secrets of nature, they will also discover the secrets in their own hearts. Their stories make Prizes a gripping, emotionally charged experience, a novel that proves once again that Erich Segal is the unsurpassed master of laughter and tears, tragedy, and triumph.
Six Frames: For Thinking About Information

Six Frames: For Thinking About Information
by Edward De Bono
Attention is a key part of thinking clearly and productively, and yet we pay very little attention to attention itself.If you see someone lying injured in the middle of the road, for example, your attention would go to that person but, if a bright pink dog wandered past at the same time, your attention would automatically stray to the dog. That is precisely the weakness of attention - it is pulled to the unusual. How much attention do we pay to the usual? So, what can we do about it? Instead of waiting for attention to be pulled towards something unusual, we can set out frameworks for 'directing' our attention in a conscious manner.Just as we can decide to look north, west or even south-east, so we can set up a framework for directing our attention, and that's where Edward de Bono's 'six frames' come in. Each frame is a direction or method in/with which to look, based on a different shape - triangle, circle, heart, square, diamond, slab. Today we are literally surrounded by information and it has never been so easy to obtain. Yet, information itself is not enough; it's how we look at it that really counts. Using the 'six frames' technique is the key to extracting real value from the masses of facts and figures out there and, like all de Bono's techniques, it is simple, effective and will utterly change the way you interpret information.
