Expelled from mainstream education and vaguely aware she has something called 'Asparagus' Syndrome, 12-year-old Jessica is sent away to a residential school for young people with autism. Here, at first miserable and misunderstood, she spends the next five years trying to cope with the strict school system - fighting against misguided teacher interventions, dealing with the onset of adolescence and fitting in with the other pupils. Recalling her school years with humour and insight, Jessica takes the reader right inside what it feels like to have AS. Her account will open the eyes of readers to the difficulties, and the rewards, of this condition.

Marilee soon discovers there is more to it than she thought, especially when her dreams start becoming reality. The noises in the attic, the letters falling from hidden spots all seem to relate to a war fought 200 years ago. Loyalist House may be more than just a lovely historic home.

From the author of the acclaimed La Maravilla comes a magical and vibrant new tale of love, history, and human sorrow.In The Silver Cloud Cafe, a murder, a suicide, and what appears to be a bizarre case of divine intervention in present-day San Francisco all lead back to a killing in a migrant farmworker?s camp in Stockton, California more than thirty years ago.More than a ramshackle Mexican cantina in the Mission District, Raphael?s Silver Cloud is a place of reckoning. High on the roof angels beckon special patrons?wanderers, the wronged, the dispossessed. A midget philosopher came and found his boyhood friend and his long lost love. A Mexican priest came, trailing his bitter history and exile?s regrets. And an assassin came.Reaching back to the anti-clerical wars which accompanied the Mexican Revolution, across the seas to the Philippines, where poverty, superstition, and religion prove to be a volatile mix, and beneath to San Francisco?s underworld of migrants, prostitutes, streetcorner prophets and sojourners of every stripe, The Silver Cloud Cafe is both a literary force and a profound meditation on the ideas of justice and culture.

Chinese Dreams Pound Brecht Tel Quel

China’s profound influence on the avant-garde in the 20th century was nowhere more apparent than in the work of Ezra Pound, Bertolt Brecht, and the writers associated with the Parisian literary journal Tel quel. Chinese Dreams explores the complex, intricate relationship between various “Chinas”—as texts—and the nation/culture known simply as “China”—their context—within the work of these writers. Eric Hayot calls into question the very means of representing otherness in the history of the West and ultimately asks if it might be possible to attend to the political meaning of imagining the other, while still enjoying the pleasures and possibilities of such dreaming. The latest edition of this critically acclaimed book includes a new preface by the author. “Lucid and accessible . . . an important contribution to the field of East-West comparative studies, Asian studies, and modernism.” —Comparative Literature Studies “Instead of trying to decipher the indecipherable ‘China’ in Western literary texts and critical discourses, Hayot chose to show us why and how ‘China’ has remained, and will probably always be, an enchanting, ever-elusive dream. His approach is nuanced and refreshing, his analysis rigorous and illuminating.” —Michelle Yeh, University of California, Davis
