‘Often, at the hour of day when the savannah grass is streaked with silver, and pale gold rims the silhouettes of the hills, I drive with my dogs up to the Mukutan, to watch the sun setting behind the lake, and the evening shadows settle over the valleys and plains of the Laikipia plateau.’ Kuki Gallmann’s haunting memoir of bringing up a family in Kenya in the 1970s first with her husband Paulo, and then alone, is part elegaic celebration, part tragedy, and part love letter to the magical spirit of Africa.

I Dream Of The Day Letters From Caleb Milne Africa 1942 1943 Illustrated Edition

Includes the War in North Africa Illustration Pack - 112 photos/illustrations and 21 maps. These are the letters Caleb Milne wrote to his mother while in the American Field Service. In May of 1943, he, with a small group of American Field Service men, responded to a call for volunteers to help the French. These Fighting French, under General Leclerc, had joined General Montgomery's 8th Army after that epic march from Lake Chad in Central Africa to Tunisia. Early the morning of May 11th, Caleb Milne was giving aid to a wounded Legionnaire when he was struck by a mortar shell. His wounds proved fatal and he died around 4:30 that afternoon. These letters, though very personal, are published with the thought that their message might reach beyond one mother. As Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings has said in her introduction: “This collection of his letters seems to me of permanent value, far beyond their satisfying of our avidity for news of the working of the minds of men who are fighting, for us, our battle. They reveal a rare soul, who passes on to us his own sensitive perceptions of the beauty and glory of living; and they are written in the style of true Belles-Lettres.” In tribute to Caleb Milne, who wrote to him on the meaning of music to a soldier, Deems Taylor, noted author and composer, said: “This, to me, is one of the most deeply felt and profoundly moving communications that the war has yet inspired. It is one of the war's major tragedies that young men capable of such vision, self-abnegation, and compassion could not be spared to help shape the peace that, God willing, will be as nearly permanent as men of good will can make it.”

February 1, 2002 marks the 100th birthday of Langston Hughes. To commemorate the centennial of his birth, Arnold Rampersad has contributed new Afterwords to both volumes of his highly-praised biography of this most extraordinary and prolific American writer. The second volume in this masterful biography finds Hughes rooting himself in Harlem, receiving stimulation from his rich cultural surroundings. Here he rethought his view of art and radicalism, and cultivated relationships with younger, more militant writers such as Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, and Amiri Bakara. Rampersads Afterword to volume two looks further into his influence and how it expanded beyond the literary as a result of his love of jazz and blues, his opera and musical theater collaborations, and his participation in radio and television. In addition, Rempersad explores the controversial matter of Hughess sexuality and the possibility that, despite a lack of clear evidence, Hughes was homosexual. Exhaustively researched in archival collections throughout the country, especially in the Langston Hughes papers at Yale Universitys Beinecke Library, and featuring fifty illustrations per volume, this anniversary edition will offer a new generation of readers entrance to the life and mind of one of the twentieth centurys greatest artists.

Die große neue Stimme aus den USA Imbolo Mbues hochgelobtes Debüt erzählt die unvergessliche Geschichte zweier Familien unterschiedlicher Herkunft, die in New York kurz vor der Bankenkrise aufeinandertreffen. Die Lehman-Brothers-Pleite bringt nicht nur ihr Leben, sondern auch ihr Wertesystem gehörig durcheinander. Jende Jonga hat es endlich geschafft, seine Frau und seinen kleinen Sohn aus Kamerun nach Amerika zu holen. Das Glück scheint komplett, als Jende den Job als Chauffeur von Clark Edwards, einem Manager der Lehmann Brothers Bank, ergattert. Und Mrs Edwards engagiert Jendes Frau sogar als Haus- und Kindermädchen in ihrem Sommerhaus in den Hamptons. Die beiden Familien könnten unterschiedlicher nicht sein und wollen doch dasselbe: ihren Kindern eine gute Zukunft bieten. Allerdings ist das Leben der Bankerfamilie längst nicht so perfekt und glamourös, wie es zunächst scheint. Als Lehman Brothers pleitegeht, ist die Fassade nicht mehr aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Jongas versuchen verzweifelt, Jendes Job zu retten – auch um den Preis ihrer Ehe. Das Leben der beiden Paare wird dramatisch auf den Kopf gestellt und Jende sieht sich gezwungen, eine unmögliche Entscheidung zu treffen. Ein hochaktueller, brillant geschriebener Roman über Familie, Immigration, Heimat und Gesellschaft, der uns alle angeht.
