Michel Russell, master of the gay erotic fiction genre, takes us to the exotic island of Papua, New Guinea, for a tale of torrid sex and drama unfolding against a back drop of one of the most beautiful camps and savage islands in the world.When Marc and Frances Fairchilde, a childless couple in their late 20s, move to Australia from England, they do not realise that another move to Papua, New Guinea, will be in the offing. Marc has been offered a job with the UN, little realising that their life on the beautiful, volatile - yet savage - island would be completely changed by a variety of characters coming into their lives. Some are young, some old, some sexy, and some larger than life. Set against a volcanic background, emotions are tried and tested to the limit.Soon Francis is returning to England after her husband is charged with murder, and a more dramatic story takes hold. The volcano erupts, and with her husband missing and presumed dead, she and their baby travel back to the deadly isle. Once there, her baby is kidnapped and she turns in desperation to an odd couple who run a nightclub for help. She also seeks help of her friend, Mamma Mia.Even more dramatic consequences unfold and unforgettable characters appear, including a sex-change nympho nightclub queen, two hustlers, a pair of innocent but naughty twins, and an inevitably raunchy lady in her 80s. The author has woven a highly charged tapestry of characters that is very modern - in an old-fashioned way. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Behr.

At the height of Mao´s infamous Cultural Revolution, two boys are among hundreds of thousands exiled to the countryside for ´´re-education.´´ The narrator and his best friend, Luo, guilty of being the sons of doctors, find themselves in a remote village where, among the peasants of the Phoenix mountains, they are made to cart buckets of excrement up and down the precipitous winding paths. Their meager distractions include a violin - and, before long, the beautiful daughter of the local tailor. But it is when the two discover a hidden stash of Western classics in Chinese translation that their re-education takes its most surprising turn. While ingeniously concealing their forbidden treasure, the boys find transit to worlds they had thought lost forever. And after listening to their dangerously seductive retellings of Balzac, even the Little Seamstress will be forever transformed. From within the hopelessness and terror of one of the darkest passages in human history, Dai Sijie has fashioned a beguiling and unexpected story about the resilience of the human spirit, the wonder of romantic awakening, and the magical power of storytelling. 1.

If you like Downton Abbey you will love Barbara Cartland. Beautiful Jasmina Winfield is a thoroughly modern American girl who likes to make her own decisions. A skilled and daring horsewoman, she is used to taking care of herself and takes orders from no one - especially not a man. Arriving in Yorkshire from Missouri to visit her relations, the Duke and Duchess of Harley, Jasmina is captivated by the sad romantic tale of her near neighbour the reclusive Earl of Somerton. Leaving Harley Grange to spend Christmas with cousins in nearby Debbingfield, Jasmina makes a wish that she could meet him to discover the mysteries that shroud his impressive home, Somerton Castle, and his loyal staff. And it seems that her wish is granted as a raging blizzard and runaway stallion conspire to halt her journey and she finds herself an unwelcome guest at Somerton Castle. Stranded by the weather with no means of communicating with the outside world, the fiercely independent young woman is forced to accept the grudging hospitality of the seemingly bad tempered Earl. As two cultures collide the fireworks begin to fly as the Earl tries to curb Jasmina´s exuberance and make her conform to his old fashioned ideas of feminine behaviour. But the Earl soon comes to recognize that alongside her free spirit runs a deep vein of loyalty and bravery, which is tested to the limits as dark forces gather like the clouds heralding more snow around the bleak castle. In an adventure that is fraught with danger and treachery Jasmina and the Earl battle against unknown forces, discovering friendship and ultimately love along the way. 1. Language: English.

Ever since the human mind developed the capacity for thought, people have pondered not just the meaning of life, but the genesis of the world, the universe, and all the natural marvels and precious forms of life within it. To this day, all of these intricate subjects continue to be matters of great contention, and they are often best encapsulated in the debate between creationism and evolution. On the one hand are those who are adamant that it was God, or some other supreme being, that designed and crafted every detail of the universe, as evidenced by the plethora of creation myths from various creeds and traditions. Among one of the most well-known etiological tales is the classic story of the Christian God who constructed the world in six days, and man and woman out of clay and man´s rib, respectively. This is a concept that many still cling to today; approximately 38 percent of Americans believed in creationism in 2017, as reported by a Gallup Poll. Then, there are the more obscure narratives, such as the Japanese creation myth, which recounts how the god and goddess, Izanagi and Izanami, birthed from ´´elements mixed together with one germ of life,” shaped the Japanese islands with some mud and the aid of a sacred staff. The Mayans preached about Tepeu, the maker of all things, and Gucumatz, the ´´feathered spirit,” who produced the world with nothing but their thoughts, and placed on Earth the first quartet of humans fashioned out of white and yellow corn. 1.

Masculinity has been misrepresented in contemporary society. Men have become associated with either of two camps, one of which is too similar to femininity to be complementary, and another that is a caricature which casts modern men as Neolithic knuckle-draggers in a primetime sitcom. Millions of modern men need a rallying point, a deep understanding of the masculine spirit capable of transforming our cultural concept of masculinity. In the second chapter of Genesis, Moses introduces us to Adam, a man created by God to be the perfect embodiment of masculinity. The Lord fashioned man from the dust of the ground, breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and initiated him into real manhood by giving him a passion and a purpose. By meditating upon the early narrative of the first man´s creation, modern men can become acquainted with the roots of biblical manliness. The descendants of Adam, Sons of Dust, find in the first man everything God intends for them to embody personally, professionally, and paternally. In Sons of Dust: The Roots of Biblical Manliness, Chris Clevenger guides men through the second chapter of Genesis, highlighting concepts that develop and enrich the masculine spirit. By guiding men through the account of the Garden of Eden, Chris invites men to cultivate the character that God himself instilled in Adam and, by developing such a character, live up to their potential as Sons of Dust. 1.

´´The top 10 Sunday Times best seller´´ Goldeneye: the story of Ian Fleming in Jamaica and the creation of British national icon, James Bond. From 1946 until the end of his life, Ian Fleming lived for two months of every year at Goldeneye – the house he built on a point of high land overlooking a small white sand beach on Jamaica’s north coast. All the James Bond novels and stories were written here. Fleming adored the Jamaica he had discovered, at the time an imperial backwater that seemed unchanged from the glory days of the empire. Amid its stunning natural beauty, the austerity and decline of post-war Britain could be forgotten. For Fleming, Jamaica offered the perfect mixture of British old-fashioned conservatism and imperial values, alongside the dangerous and sensual: the same curious combination that made his novels so appealing, and successful. The spirit of the island – its exotic beauty, its unpredictability, its melancholy, its love of exaggeration and gothic melodrama – infuses his writing. Fleming threw himself into the island’s hedonistic Jet Set party scene: Hollywood giants, and the cream of British aristocracy, the theatre, literary society and the secret services spent their time here drinking and bed-hopping. But while the whites partied, Jamaican blacks were rising up to demand respect and self-government. And as the imperial hero James Bond – projecting British power across the world – became ever more anachronistic and fantastical, so his popularity soared. Drawing on extensive interviews with Ian’s family, his Jamaican lover Blanche Blackwell and many other islanders, Goldeneye is a beautifully written, revealing and original exploration of a crucially important part of Ian Fleming’s life and work. 1.
