Family Album
by Danielle Steel
Through forty years from Hollywood's golden days in World War II to the present, Faye Price would create first a career as a legendary actress, then a family, and finally she would realize her dream of becoming one of Hollywood's first woman directors. But nothing was more precious to Faye than her five children. In a changing world, a milieu where family values are constantly challenged from without and within, the Thayers would face the greatest challenges and harshest test a family can endure, to emerge stronger, bound forever by loyalty and love. It is only when Faye is gone that they can each assess how far they have come, and how important their family album is.

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.
The Four Courts Murder

The Four Courts Murder
by Andrew Nugent
A superbly entertaining and suspenseful debut crime novel from Irish Benedictine Monk Andrew Nugent.

When a Dublin High Court judge is found dead - slumped in his chair, his neck snapped by a well aimed kick - many would say he got what he deserved. But Inspector Denis Lennon and Sergeant Molly Power soon unearth a far more dangerous and complex case than simple revenge. There's the handsome, fair-haired young man whose flights of fancy and secret liaisons lead them down many a dark alleyway; the judge with an unusual but lucrative hobby; the strange connection with a rural community; the good-looking Tae-Kwando teacher.

Elegant, charming and clever, Andrew Nugent deflates the pomposity of the law, the police force, and Irish rural mythology in a novel as ingenious as it is witty and compelling.
