A Lion Called Christian: The True Story of the Remarkable Bond Between Two Friends and A Lion, Anthony Bourke and John Rendall
4 Anthony Bourke and John Rendall A Lion Called Christian: The True Story of the Remarkable Bond Between Two Friends and A Lion
Broadway books 238056 New York 2008 0767932307 / 9780767932301 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good In 2008 an extraordinary two-minute film clip appeared on YouTube and immediately became an international phenomenon. It captures the moving reunion of two young men and their pet lion Christian, after they had left him in Africa with Born Free's George Adamson to introduce him into his rightful home in the wild. A Lion Called Christian tells the remarkable story of how Anthony "Ace" Bourke and John Rendall, visitors to London from Australia in 1969, bought the boisterous lion cub in the pet department of Harrods. For several months, the three of them shared a flat above a furniture shop on London's King's Road, where the charismatic and intelligent Christian quickly became a local celebrity, cruising the streets in the back of a Bentley, popping in for lunch at a local restaurant, even posing for a fashion advertisement. But the lion cub was growing up-fast-and soon even the walled church garden where he went for exercise wasn't large enough for him. How could Ace and John avoid having to send Christian to a zoo for the rest of his life? A coincidental meeting with English actors Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers, stars of the hit film Born Free, led to Christian being flown to Kenya and placed under the expert care of "the father of lions" George Adamson. Incredibly, when Ace and John returned to Kenya to see Christian a year later, they received a loving welcome from their lion, who was by then fully integrated into Africa and a life with other lions. 226 pages.

The Carpet Wars, Christopher Kremmer
12 Christopher Kremmer The Carpet Wars
HarperCollins 240805 Australia 2007 0732271223 / 9780732271220 Trade Paperback Fine Condition No Dust Jacket In 1990, Christopher Kremmer arrived in Afghanistan to interview the doomed communist president, Dr Najibullah as rampaging factions of mujahideen massed on the outskirts of Kabul. He found himself intrigued by the politics and culture of the land, and his book provides revealing, often first-hand portraits of warlords such as Ahmad Shah Masood, "the Lion of Panjsher", of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and of Pakistan's President, General Pervez Musharraf. The real stories of the lands of the ancient silk route, however, are accessed through Kremmer's obsession with the carpets of the region. Initiated into the wonders of the craft through the stunning classic design and pomegranate dyes of the filpai or elephant's foot in Dr Najibullah's office, Kremmer is hooked, and thus tells the tales of his lasting friendships with nomads on portable handlooms to managers of mechanised production units to the merchants in the souks and bazaars. This journey into an ancient, violent, often tragic, but little understood region is also an impassioned plea for the breaking down of the barriers of paranoia, ignorance and hate that continue to divide the world of the 21st-century. 480 pages.

Attica, Garry Kilworth
14 Garry Kilworth Attica
Atom 231538 2006 1904233813 / 9781904233817 Softcover Very Good Condition A novel with echoes of timeless classics such as The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Borrowers, and Alice in Wonderland, Garry Kilworth's Attica reveals a twilight world of forgotten wonders, and extraordinary adventures-all happening just above our heads. Join Jordy, Alex, and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful other place, accessible for just a moment in time through the trap-door of the attic in their family home. From hat-stand forests, to towering hills of old musical instruments, deserts of old books and a great water-tank lake, the vast continent they stumble upon is one of limitless surprises-and that's before they meet the inhabitants: strange clans of small and lumpen people who live in homes constructed from all manner of found things and drive vehicles powered by old sewing-machine parts. It is against this remarkable backdrop that the three children will embark on a spellbinding adventure to recover a prized possession, save a life, and-somehow-find a way back home. A story of courage, loyalty and friendship; of Browsers, Shadow-Tangles and Tatterdermalions; of incredible landscapes, ingenious devices, and cunning plot twists, Attica has a richness and depth that will delight readers of all ages.

The Day On Fire - A Novel Suggested by The Life of Arthur Rimbaud, James Ramsey Ullman
15 James Ramsey Ullman The Day On Fire - A Novel Suggested by The Life of Arthur Rimbaud
Collins 235255 London 1958 Hardcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Suggested by the life of Arthur Rimbaud", this biographical novel becomes- in Ullman's hands- an extraordinary and moving document of a man possessed, gifted, but for the greater part of his life- unmotivated. The slender thread of factual record informs a live, at times repellent, portrait of the man he calls Claude Morel, but where Morel's story departs from Rimbaud's is not evident to the reader. Born in the Ardennes of northern France, his childhood dominated by a strange mother and his need to escape her, Claude finally reaches Paris- there to become a drifter, and in a second return, a depraved waster, involved with another poet- Maurice Druard (recognizably Paul Verlaine), but writing, ceaselessly, brilliantly, with a decadence then virtually unknown. Their relationship ends with a shooting- and from then on Claude becomes even more of a wanderer, up and down the length of France, then briefly as a soldier of the Dutch in Asia, a deserter, a hunter, trader, perhaps a slaver, a pilgrim. Finally a teacher at the court of the Lion of Judah, Menelik, he returned to France to die in Marseilles. A haunting tale with an obsessive fascination, it is a tragic book, symbolic of waste, frustration, lost genius. Ullman has used Himbaud's own work as an integral part of his text. 638 pages.
