The Black Book (Hindi) tells the story of Galip who is a lawyer in Istanbul. One day after returning from work, Galip notices that his wife Ruya is missing. He is unclear if she has disappeared or whether she left on her own accord. He sets off to find her and thus begins the mysterious story of The Black Book. Galip tracks down his half-brother Celal after finding reasons to believe that his wife might be with him. He however notices that Celal too is missing, which further intensifies the plot. Galip begins to take over Celal’s life by living in his house and even taking up his job as a columnist. He encounters strange people from Celal’s life which further complicates Galip’s life and the story at hand. The Black Book delves into ideas about identities and one’s quest for answers and satisfaction. This book was published by Penguin India in Hindi in 2012 and is available in paperback.

The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry is a collection of eyewitness testimonies, letters, diaries, affidavits, and other documents on the activities of the Nazis against Jews in the camps, ghettoes, and towns of Eastern Europe. Arguably, the only apt comparison is to The Gulag Archipelago of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. This definitive edition, including for the first time materials omitted from previous editions, is a major addition to the literature on the Holocaust. Now available in paperback, it will be of particular interest to students, teachers, and scholars of the Holocaust and those interested in the history of Europe. The Black Book is the single most important text documenting the slaughter of Jews in the USSR. Until now, it was only available in English in truncated editions. Because of its profound significance, this definitive English translation of The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry is a major literary and intellectual event. " O]ne of the most important books in the vast literature on the Holocaust...The extent of cruelty exhibited here and the uncontrolled ways in which it happened are a graphic demonstration of what the human race is capable of when left entirely to its own devices."-William B. Helmreich, Long Island Jewish World " P]repared by Ehrenburg and Grossman themselves, with fine literary skill...Each section of the documents has a useful set of notes compiled by David Patterson, author of this excellent translation, which clarifies factual issues, and presents brief biographies of more significant figures."-Richard Overy, Times Literary Supplement

A tale of good and evil, of corruption and deceit, of prejudice, politics, and power, this compelling account scrutinizes the immensely lucrative Nevada gambling industry’s struggle to maintain legitimacy—or at least the appearance of it. Ronald A. Farrell and Carole Case tell how state regulators created the “Black Book” in the 1960s, a list of “notorious and unsavory” persons banned forever from owning, managing, or even entering casinos in the state. The regulators dramatically pursued and publicly denounced former lieutenants of Al Capone, alleged overlords of the American Mafia, nationally known professional gamblers, and major casino owners, as well as small-time bookies and hoods, reputed sports fixers, and gambling cheats. To date, thirty-eight names have been entered in the Black Book, including Sam Giancana, Anthony Spilotro, and Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal. Farrell and Case contend, however, that the denunciations were a melodrama, meant to show that the government was cleansing the city of corruption. Through the Black Book, the regulators focus public attention on “the Mob,” rather than on a multitude of competing criminal interests already in the gaming industry. The authors uncover evidence of ethnic discrimination by the regulators, including selective prosecution of Italian Americans whose notoriety fit popular Mafia stereotypes. The Black Book and the Mob records hearings of the regulatory commission and the voices of lawyers, government officials, casino owners, and the people named in the Black Book itself. This Las Vegas story is a rebuke to the gaming industry and a cautionary tale for many states and communities now weighing the legalization of casino gambling.

With my book, which will be my first that I have written, will be the central underlying key to the core of emotion. I want to be able to explain the thoughts and feelings that other people cannot explain for themselves. I want the youth of our generation to know that everything they are going through is real and that they are not alone. I want them to be able to explore life for themselves. As I understand, there are thousands upon thousands of poetry books out there dusting the shelves of bookstores because they have met borderline criteria rather than being huge successes. But this book is different, its content is smothered with truth and movement about love, hope, sadness, temptation, addiction, and the cutting edge feelings this world has turned the people to as a comfort.
