In the opening pages of this novel, an accident brings a young girl to the attention of the Preacher, the all-powerful leader of a religious cult secluded in the jungle. Trina has only dim memories of the life she lived with her mother before they joined the community and the closed, close society is all she knows. When she is singled out for special favour, it becomes clear that the gaze of the Preacher can be a dangerous thing. As the Preacher's behaviour and the demands he places on his followers become more extreme, Trina's mother begins to question her faith in the charismatic but fatally flawed leader and to dream of an escape from his control. In this powerful re-imagining of the infamous Jonestown tragedy, D'Aguiar writes with the lyrical intensity of a poet, examining the motivations and obsessions that lead to religious fanaticism. This is a novel about the betrayal of faith and of innocence, a story about love, devotion and mania that is a brave attempt to understand the reasoning of people who would, in the end, kill their own children in the prelude to a mass suicide that shocked the world. Although history tells us that the ending of this story can never be anything other than a tragedy, D'Aguiar's compassion, and his ability to draw the reader into the intimate and terrible reality of lives lived at the whim of a corrupt and dangerous cult leader, ensure that in the end this is a story of hope.

The drama that shaped today’s Iran, from the Revolution to the present day. In 1979, seemingly overnight—moving at a clip some thirty years faster than the rest of the world—Iran became the first revolutionary theocracy in modern times. Since then, the country has been largely a black box to the West, a sinister presence looming over the horizon. But inside Iran, a breathtaking drama has unfolded since then, as religious thinkers, political operatives, poets, journalists, and activists have imagined and reimagined what Iran should be. They have drawn as deeply on the traditions of the West as of the East and have acted upon their beliefs with urgency and passion, frequently staking their lives for them. With more than a decade of experience reporting on, researching, and writing about Iran, Laura Secor narrates this unprecedented history as a story of individuals caught up in the slipstream of their time, seizing and wielding ideas powerful enough to shift its course as they wrestle with their country’s apparatus of violent repression as well as its rich and often tragic history. Essential reading at this moment when the fates of our countries have never been more entwined, Children of Paradise will stand as a classic of political reporting; an indelible portrait of a nation and its people striving for change. From the Hardcover edition.

Lewis Nkosi, doyen of African letters, called South Africa in the 1950s the "fabulous decade." It was a decade that threw up some of the most remarkable political struggles of African people against European oppression: from the Defiance Campaign to the women's anti-pass march, bus boycotts, and the adoption of the Freedom Charter at the Congress of the People in 1955, which became the blueprint for change in South Africa. These events form the backdrop to the quirky narratives in this book of short stories. Set in the vibrant community of the (now extinct) Brakpan Old Location outside Johannesburg, the stories bring to life the seminal moments of the period. The charm and humor of the collection is provided in plentiful supply by its small narrator, Baba Boy, who offers an unusual - and at times hilarious - personal view of the unfolding events. The book also includes the eccentricities of a cast of courageous characters, such as Grace Ramakola, MaX, and others. Children of Paradise celebrates, above all, the resilience of people who chose to be not victims but 'creative fighters' against a system that sought to dispossess them of dignity and humanity.
