Set in an unnamed African country, V. S. Naipaul's A Bend in the River is narrated by Salim, a young man from an Indian family of traders long resident on the coast. He believes The world is what it is; men who are nothing, who allow themselves to become nothing, have no place in it. So he has taken the initiative; left the coast; acquired his own shop in a small, growing city in the continent’s remote interior and is selling sundries – little more than this and that, really – to the natives. This spot, this ‘bend in the river’, is a microcosm of post-colonial Africa at the time of Independence: a scene of chaos, violent change, warring tribes, ignorance, isolation and poverty. And from this rich landscape emerges one of the author’s most potent works – a truly moving story of historical upheaval and social breakdown.

The historical landscape of the Yarra Bend Park marks one of the most significant post-contact Aboriginal sites in the Melbourne metropolitan area. The confluence of Merri Creek and the Yarra River was the focus of interaction between Victorian Aboriginal communities, particularly the Wurundjeri people, government officials and settlers during the early years of contact in the Port Phillip District. At this site was located the Western Port or Melbourne Protectorate District Headquarters (1842-1849), the Merri Creek Aboriginal School (1845-1851), the Native Police Corps Headquarters(1842-1843) and associated Aboriginal burials. The area is also identified with important individuals including Billibellary, an Aboriginal ngurungaeta or clan-head who died at this location in 1846, and William Thomas, Assistant Protector of the Port Phillip Aboriginal Protectorate. A place for Aboriginal community meetings, ceremonies, judicial proceedings, councils and debates for a range of Aboriginal clans, the Yarra bend was also a preferred place of residence. The location of this 'little settlement' gave Aboriginal people -- from near and far -- access to the colonial economy and European cultures, at a time when pre,-contact ways of life were increasingly frustrated and undermined by the incursion of mostly British settlers. This area continued to hold significance to Aboriginal people after the 1840s, linking pre- and post-contact histories and geographies. The place has added importance in the early twenty-first century as Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians address the legacies of our contact past. This book provides an authoritative analysis of Aboriginal cultural institutions in colonial Victoria. It will interest organisations involved in Indigenous cultural tourism, and prove a valuable resource for schools teaching Victorian Indigenous history, society and geography. Above all, it is an engaging and accessible history of a popular Melbourne parkland.

“A virtuosic collection of stories followed by the sharp blade of a killer novella as the final act. Gerard Bianco’s stories do not creep up on you: they fall upon you like a raptor plummeting, wings folded, golden eye ablaze. Their signature swirl of caustic irony is bitter, often brutal -- a gleam of talons and a sudden cry -- resulting almost always in a small death of the heart.” —Dianne Benedict, Author of Shiny Objects Following a devastating fall, Rita finds herself standing outside the dining hall at an independent living facility. She squeezes the handle of her cane, and her knuckles turn white. Her wire-rimmed glasses accentuate the tears she tries to hide. After eighty-two years, and a lifetime of memories, Rita believes she’s been abandoned at the mouth of a fiery dragon that will swallow her up—and she is terrified. Gerard Bianco shares a fresh voice in short storytelling, leading the reader through seventeen vividly imagined journeys. When a man purchases a remote log cabin in the Adirondacks, he believes he has found a peaceful haven, until he discovers a stranger dead on his living room rug. A man, looking for a new adventure, joins a unique organization and quickly learns that getting what you want can sometimes lead to unimagined consequences. Two couples set out on a vacation in Maine, only to find their dreamy trip has turned into a getaway nightmare. A Sharp Bend in the Road redefines the art of the short story collection. Seventeen stories, built around absorbing characters, strong conflicts, and sometimes dark and absurdly humorous ingredients, prove that journeying through life is far from predictable.

With millions of Americans watching, one of the nation's most popular television personalities, Joan Lunden, made a life-altering transition with grace and ease as she brought to a close two decades of hosting Good Morning America. For the first time Joan candidly reveals how she approached such an enormous challenge as an opportunity for growth -- and how you can, too. For each change that occurred during the course of those twenty years, Joan had an entire nation watching her respond, commenting on the things that she did, critiquing the way that she did them, and putting forth opinions on what she should do next: "People I had never met constantly offered me suggestions about how I should handle my divorce, how I should raise my children, and the career choices I should make after GMA. I was a private citizen with the normal stresses that a mother, wife, and businesswoman endures on a daily basis, going through life's changes in a public arena." We all go through change. Whether it's an illness in the family, a divorce, teenagers acting out, losing a job, having to move, or kids leaving the nest, one thing is certain: Change is the only thing we can count on. Yet, while change is the one constant in our lives, it often produces the greatest amount of fear. In this inspiring new book, Joan shows us the importance of staying levelheaded in the face of crisis no matter what or whom you're facing. Both an intimate self-portrait and a practical blueprint for living a happier, more fulfilling life, A Bend in the Road is Not the End of the Road proves once again why so many viewers have followed Joan Lunden for so many years.

During his pre-deployment briefing, he discovers a TOP-SECRET MEMO revealing rumors that the North Koreans may still be holding a handful of elderly Americans from the Korean War in secret prison camps. As it happens, Gunner’s grandfather, who was a young marine officer in the Korean War, disappeared at Chosin Reservoir over 60 years ago and is still listed as MIA in North Korea. Sworn to silence about what he has read, the top-secret memo eats at him.

Risking his career, his fortune, and his life, Gunner will get his answers, or he will die trying. Don Brown is building a loyal fan base by writing what he knows best: thrillers with heart. A former Navy JAG officer and action officer in the Pentagon, Brown pens action-packed plots and finely-drawn characters that are credible and compelling.
