Jewels and Ashes, Arnold Zable
1 Arnold Zable Jewels and Ashes
Scribe 228112 Melbourne 0908011202 / 9780908011209 Softcover Good Condition Romance and terror, light and shadow, replicas and originals, hover side by side, seeking reconciliation, while within me there is a sense of awe and a silent refrain- I am here, at last I am here; and it is far more beautiful than I had imagined. And far more devastating. Yet, somehow, never have I felt so much at peace. In the twenty-five years since it was published, Jewels and Ashes has become a classic, a book that has stood the test of time. Compelled by the momentum of memory, the unsettling fragments of ancestral stories told him as a child, Arnold Zable travels to the Eastern European countryside of his parents' remembrance, the terrain of his dreams and imagination, where he retraces the steps of the generations before him. Miraculously, it is this journey to the past that allows Zable to understand the present - the inner lives of those who, like his parents, survived the hatred but lost every trace of his family and former lives. Arnold Zable has articulated, exquisitely, the haunted consciousness of the next generation. An astonishing achievement, this is a lyrical, transcendent, luminous work. 210 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Autobiography::Memoir; Australia; Biography & Autobiography; History. ISBN: 0908011202. ISBN/EAN: 9780908011209.

Ramses - The Son of the Light, Christian Jacq
2 Christian Jacq Ramses - The Son of the Light
Simon & Schuster 229953 London 1997 0684821192 / 9780684821191 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Whenever the grandeur of Ancient Egypt is evoked, there is one name which comes immediately to mind - Ramses II, the pharaoh who reigned for more than sixty years. Here, he is still only fourteen years old. His father, Seti is worshipped by his people and has made his empire the most powerful in the world. But who will be his successor? Should it be his eldest son, Shanaar, a calculating schemer; or Ramses, still passionate and impetuous? Unbeknownst to Ramses, Seti sets about teaching him his supreme duty. The tests and traps, sometimes potentially mortal, begin to multiply. And meanwhile, will Ramses escape the machinations of his brother? Will he know how to choose between Iset the Beautiful and the mysterious Nefertari? He has only a few friends he can really trust: Moses, his Hebrew schoolfriend, who shares his spirited temperament; Setaou, the snake charmer; and Ameni, the scribe. 360 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN: 0684821192. ISBN/EAN: 9780684821191. Inventory No: 229953. Paperback

The Map of Time, Felix J. Palma
3 Felix J. Palma The Map of Time
Scribe Publications 225662 Australia 2011 1921844116 / 9781921844119 Trade Paperback Good Condition No Dust Jacket Characters real and imaginary come vividly to life in this whimsical triple play of intertwined plots, in which a skeptical H. G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time travel and to save lives and literary classics, including "Dracula "and "The Time Machine, "from being wiped from existence. "What happens if we change history?" Felix J. Palma explores this provocative question, weaving a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting a story full of love and adventure that transports readers from a haunting setting in Victorian London to a magical reality where centuries collide and a writer s mind seems to pull at all the strings." 465 pages.

People Of The Book, Geraldine Brooks
4 Geraldine Brooks People Of The Book
HarperPerennial 226951 Great Britain 2008 0007177429 / 9780007177424 Softcover Near Fine Condition In 1996, Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, is offered the job of a lifetime: analysis and conservation of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, which has been rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian war. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewish volumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna, a caustic loner with a passion for her work, discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding-an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair-she begins to unlock the book's mysteries. The reader is ushered into an exquisitely detailed and atmospheric past, tracing the book's journey from its salvation back to its creation. In Bosnia during World War II, a Muslim risks his life to protect it from the Nazis. In the hedonistic salons of fin-de-siècle Vienna, the book becomes a pawn in the struggle against the city's rising anti-Semitism. In inquisition-era Venice, a Catholic priest saves it from burning. In Barcelona in 1492, the scribe who wrote the text sees his family destroyed by the agonies of enforced exile. And in Seville in 1480, the reason for the Haggadah's extraordinary illuminations is finally disclosed. Hanna's investigation unexpectedly plunges her into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalist fanatics. Her experiences will test her belief in herself and the man she has come to love. 372 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.
