When Dreams Travel by Gita Hariharan

When Dreams Travel by Gita Hariharan



The powerless must have a dream or two,dreams that break walls,dreams that go through walls as if they are powerless.

The curtain open on four figures,two men and two women.There is the sultan,who wants a virgin every night;there is his brother,who makes an enemy of darkness and tries to banish it;and there are their ambitious brides,the sisters Shahrzad and Dunyazad,aspiring to be heroines-or martyrs.Travelling in and out of these lives to spellbinding effect is a range of stories,dark,poetic and witty in turn,spanning medieval to contemporary times.

With its sharp and lively blend of past and present,its skillful reworking of the historical tradition,and its evocative language,When Dreams Travel has all the significance of modern myth.

A magical tour de force by a writer at the height of her powers.

Snow Falling on Cedars
Add To Bookshelf
Snow Falling on Cedars
by David Guterson
On San Piedro, an island of rugged, spectacular beauty in Puget Sound, a Japanese-American fisherman stands trial for murder. Set in 1954 in the shadow of World War II, Snow Falling on Cedars is a beautifully crafted courtroom drama, love story, and war novel, illuminating the psychology of a community, the ambiguities of justice, the racism that persists even between neighbors, and the necessity of individual moral action despite the indifference of nature and circumstance.

No Comebacks
by Frederick Forsyth
Deception, blackmail, murder, revenge-these are the themes of stories that move from London to the coast of Spain, from Mauritius to Dublin to Dordogne. Whether his subject is assassination by stealth, the cruel confidence trick or the cold shock of coincidence, Frederick Forsyth is never less than compulsive, the detail always authentic.

The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan
by Robert Kanigel
In 1913, a young, unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G.H.Hardy,begging the pre-eminent English Mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers.Realizing the letter was the work of a genius,Hardy arranged for Srinivasa Ramanujan to come to England.Thus began one of the most improbable and productive collaborations ever chronicled....

With a passion for rich and evocative detail,Robert Kanigel takes us from the teeming slums of Madras to the courts and chapels of Cambridge University,where the Devout Hindu Ramanujan,"The Prince of Intuition," tested his brilliant theories alongside the sophisticated and eccentric Hardy,"the Apostle of Proof."In time, Ramanujan's creative intensity took its toll:he died at the age of thirty-two and left behind a magical and inspired legacy that is still being plumbed for its secrets today.
