The Master and His Emissary Book Review:

A new edition of the bestselling classic – published with a special introduction to mark its 10th anniversary This pioneering account sets out to understand the structure of the human brain – the place where mind meets matter. Until recently, the left hemisphere of our brain has been seen as the ‘rational’ side, the superior partner to the right. But is this distinction true? Drawing on a vast body of experimental research, Iain McGilchrist argues while our left brain makes for a wonderful servant, it is a very poor master. As he shows, it is the right side which is the more reliable and insightful. Without it, our world would be mechanistic – stripped of depth, colour and value.

Memoirs of a Polar Bear Book Review:

The Memoirs of a Polar Bear stars three generations of talented writers and performers—who happen to be polar bears The Memoirs of a Polar Bear has in spades what Rivka Galchen hailed in the New Yorker as “Yoko Tawada’s magnificent strangeness”—Tawada is an author like no other. Three generations (grandmother, mother, son) of polar bears are famous as both circus performers and writers in East Germany: they are polar bears who move in human society, stars of the ring and of the literary world. In chapter one, the grandmother matriarch in the Soviet Union accidentally writes a bestselling autobiography. In chapter two, Tosca, her daughter (born in Canada, where her mother had emigrated) moves to the DDR and takes a job in the circus. Her son—the last of their line—is Knut, born in chapter three in a Leipzig zoo but raised by a human keeper in relatively happy circumstances in the Berlin zoo, until his keeper, Matthias, is taken away... Happy or sad, each bear writes a story, enjoying both celebrity and “the intimacy of being alone with my pen.”

Emissary Legends of the Realm Book 1 Book Review:

Hyam is a likeable lad who will make a fine farmer someday. But he carries a burden few can fathom. As his mother slips toward death, she implores him to return to Long Hall, where he spent five years as an apprentice. It was there that Hyam's extraordinary capacity for mastering languages came to light--and soon cast him into the shadows of suspicion. How could any human learn the forbidden tongues with such ease? When Hyam dares to seek out the Mistress of the Sorceries, her revelation tears his world asunder. He has no choice but to set out on the foreboding path--which beckons him to either his destiny or his doom. An encounter with an enchanting stranger reminds him that he is part hero and part captive. As Hyam struggles to interpret the omens and symbols, he is swept up by a great current of possibilities--and dangers. With lyrical prose that unveils a richly imaginative world, Thomas Locke takes readers on a journey into the Realm. There he invites them to awaken their sense of wonder. This cracking adventure moves like a contemporary thriller but harkens back to the enduring genre of classic fantasy.

The Emissary Book Review:

In her debut novel, Patricia Cori weaves her visionary message into a page-turning fantasy adventure that speaks to the very soul of the planet. Within minutes of one another, three bone-chilling events take place around the globe. In Los Angeles, hundreds of blackbirds drop out of the sky, zapped to their death, mid-flight; in Maine, miles of beach are covered in tens of thousands of dead fish; in New Zealand, 150 whales and dolphins lie dead or dying on the beach. Jamie Hastings, a renowned psychic researcher and telepath, forges a deep soul connection with the dying whales that leads to her troubled journey at sea as a consultant for USOIL, a Texas based oil company that's drilling in the most pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest, looking for oil--or so it seems. A bizarre unfolding of events aboard ship sparks the unraveling of a truly evil plan of a secret government that is intent upon silencing the music of the oceans and destroying all life on the planet. As impossible as it is to imagine anything as sinister as the shadow Jamie faces in her mission to save the earth from the doomsday weapon bearing down on the world, the fact is that it is actually happening, at this very moment, while most of the world is asleep--or simply unaware. One woman has been chosen to be the voice, against the forces of evil, of the cherished creatures of the sea. She is the emissary. The question is: Is there still time for her to stop it?

The Emissary Book Review:

Winner of 2018 National Book Award in Translated Literature Library Journal Best Books of 2018 Yoko Tawada’s new novel is a breathtakingly light-hearted meditation on mortality and fully displays what Rivka Galchen has called her “brilliant, shimmering, magnificent strangeness” Japan, after suffering from a massive irreparable disaster, cuts itself off from the world. Children are so weak they can barely stand or walk: the only people with any get-go are the elderly. Mumei lives with his grandfather Yoshiro, who worries about him constantly. They carry on a day-to-day routine in what could be viewed as a post-Fukushima time, with all the children born ancient—frail and gray-haired, yet incredibly compassionate and wise. Mumei may be enfeebled and feverish, but he is a beacon of hope, full of wit and free of self-pity and pessimism. Yoshiro concentrates on nourishing Mumei, a strangely wonderful boy who offers “the beauty of the time that is yet to come.” A delightful, irrepressibly funny book, The Emissary is filled with light. Yoko Tawada, deftly turning inside-out “the curse,” defies gravity and creates a playful joyous novel out of a dystopian one, with a legerdemain uniquely her own.

The Emissary Elect Book Review:

The Emissary Elect is a concise Sīrah of the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم, highlighting the main events in his blessed life. It is therefore ideal as a teaching template that can be used in Madrasahs, as well as Mawlid gatherings as it is brief and can be covered in a short period of time, or simply as an introduction to the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم for someone who is not familiar with his blessed life. We hope when one has read this concise biography of the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم one will have the desire then to progress to a more detailed Sīrah and read about him صلى الله عليه وسلم in more depth. We advise that one reads Sīrat al-Muṣṭafā صلى الله عليه وسلم by ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-Muṣṭafā al-Aʿẓamī which is available in English entitled Muḥammad, The Prophet of Islām, as many ‘Siyar’ are misinformative and therefore do not give an accurate account of incidents. This is the most correct Sīrah available in the English language to our knowledge and contains many proofs in respect to the beliefs of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jamāʿah regarding the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم to which others object. Second Edition Apart from general improvements, for this edition, footnotes have been converted to endnotes, to which references have been added. We appreciate the feedback we received, especially the notifying of errors. These have been corrected to the best of our knowledge.

The Emissary A Life of Enzo Sereni Book Review:

“Enzo Sereni was physically tiny, a peanut with spectacles. Born in 1905 into a cultivated, wealthy Italian Jewish family, he steeped himself as a youth in traditional Italian culture. Burning with visions of Eden, he became one of the little band of Italian Zionists — more precisely, the still littler band of Italian Socialist Zionists, dreamers of a new life for Jews as a people and as people. At 22, he went off with his wife to Palestine, the two of them the first Italians to work as “pioneers.” He became a founder of kibbutz Givat Brenner, working on and off as laborer in the fields and then racing away to beg/borrow money for the kibbutz from Jewish agencies and Italian relatives. During the war he served with British intelligence in Cairo, and then worked as a secret agent in Iraq, helping endangered Jews to flee. Finally, 39, he parachuted behind the Nazi lines in northern Italy, hoping to save a few of the remaining Jews stranded there. Caught by the Nazis, he was shipped to Dachau. The few surviving witnesses record that he behaved with notable courage. In 1944 the Nazis killed him... As Ruth Bondy, an Israeli journalist, tells the story in her unadorned and disciplined book, the bare events take on color, shape and nuance, and one comes to think of Sereni as a heroic figure. He seems heroic not just because of his readiness to face death, by no means unusual in our century, but because of his wish to live out his life to the brim of consciousness — which for him meant the brim of responsibility and risk... Sereni’s story is the best testimony I have ever read to the moral energy Zionism commanded during its heroic period... Ruth Bondy has told his story with an admirable plainness, out of an understanding that in our time nothing is finally more moving than the record of an exemplary life.” — Irving Howe, The New York Times “When I think about Enzo there is one thought on my mind: he was unique. Of course, he lived in our midst, in the kibbutz, in political life; he had many friends who were near to him; he loved people — and yet, I always felt that he was one of a kind. You cannot say about Enzo: he was one of those who... There was nobody like him.” —Golda Meir, from the Afterword “Enzo Sereni’s life is the stuff of legend. His passionate nature and reflective intelligence were both animated and tempered by the most scrupulous ethical judgments. A dashing and romantic figure in the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, he should become — through Ruth Bondy’s sensitive and deeply human evocation — an inspiration for all who genuinely care about justice. Here was a man who had roots and wings at once.” — Martin Peretz, Editor, The New Republic “Enzo Sereni’s life was climaxed by an act of desperate heroism in World War II — parachuting behind the Nazi lines to bring courage to the beleaguered and alert them that the outside world was concerned with their fate. Precisely because Ruth Bondy writes of him in a low key, without forced drama, and with the larger perspective never lost, her biography of this Italian-born Israeli leaves an unforgettable impact.” — Abram L. Sachar, Chancellor, Brandeis University

The Emissary Book Review:

"Indiana Jones meets Eckhart Tolle!" As the world descends from a Golden Age into darkness and brutality, Marcus has been reincarnated an exhausting number of times. Selected to become an Emissary, it is his duty to protect the world's most sacred, long-standing secrets. When he surreptitiously consumes a serum that allows him to retain his memory from one lifetime to the next, Marcus inadvertently condemns himself to thousands of years of torment, loneliness and searching. Desperate to preserve his memories of his soul mate, Theron, and unsure as to whether or not he was ever truly meant to be an Emmisary, Marcus's struggles span lifetimes through ancient Bolivia, Greece, Egypt, the Mongol Empire and Shambhala, all the while remaining vigilantly alert to the looming danger of his cruel and powerful nemesis, Helghul. A collision of kick-ass action, ancient mystery and an epic love story for the ages, The Emissary is a bold and unforgettable tale of power, devotion, lust, spirituality, world history, and the timeless battle between good and evil.

The Naked Eye Book Review:

“Tawada’s slender accounts of alienation achieve a remarkable potency.”—Michael Porter, The New York Times A precocious Vietnamese high school student — known as the pupil with “the iron blouse”—in Ho Chi Minh City is invited to an International Youth Conference in East Berlin. But, in East Berlin, as she is preparing to present her paper in Russian on “Vietnam as a Victim of American Imperialism,” she is abruptly kidnapped and taken to a small town in West Germany. After a strange spell of domestic-sexual boredom with her lover-abductor—and though “the Berlin Wall was said to be more difficult to break through than the Great Wall of China” — she escapes on a train to Moscow . . . but mistakenly arrives in Paris. Alone, broke, and in a completely foreign land, Anh (her false name) loses herself in the films of Catherine Deneuve as her real adventures begin. Dreamy, meditative, and filled with the gritty everyday perils of a person living somewhere without papers (at one point Anh is subjected to some vampire-like skin experiments), The Naked Eye is a novel that is as surprising as it is delightful—each of the thirteen chapters titled after and framed by one of Deneuve’s films. “As far as I was concerned,” the narrator says while watching Deneuve on the screen, “the only woman in the world was you, and so I did not exist.” By the time 1989 comes along and the Iron Curtain falls, story and viewer have morphed into the dislocating beauty of both dancer and dance.

Meghdoot Book Review:

Invaluable to classical Sanskrit literature, Meghdoot (The Cloud Messenger) epitomizes the subliminal relationship between a man trapped in trying circumstances and nature. Kalidasa crafted the masterpiece on a mythological incident where Yaksha, a servant of Lord Kuber blessed with the boon of everlasting youth, gets entrammeled by the charms of his Yakshini and neglects his duty of plucking fresh flowers every morning for his master s religious chores. Enraged, Lord Kuber banishes Yaksha for a year to a hermit s life in the jungle. While loneliness forces Yaksha to look toward nature and its elements, changing seasons take toll on his body and a forlorn heart. Yaksha grows delirious and has started hallucinating. He has started perceiving human activity and reaction in all animated objects of nature suiting his surging emotions and projected images. He sees a friend in the tumbling dark clouds lumbering toward him who can travel great distances and may help carrying his earnings to his beloved, pining away for him at home in Himalayan Alkanagri. Mrityunjay s unique perception and contemporary treatment of images of history and heritage presents a lyrical recipe of a mythical drama. Footnotes on mythical characters, symbols, and scriptural references make it all the more reader friendly.

Emissary of Light Book Review:

Traveling in 1995 around war-torn Bosnia and Croatia, where he had gone to stage a peace concert, this author encountered The Emissaries: a small group of mystics who meditated 12 hours a day. He went on to detail their message—that humanity was now ready to create a new world—in a book that was translated into more than a dozen languages. This new edition provides behind-the-scenes information about the people met on that trip and offers additional commentary on the monks' compelling mystic vision.

Space is cold. But the heart of an Omega Captain is colder still The Sa'Nerra were close to defeat, then everything changed. Armed with a unique neural weapon, the merciless alien warriors turned Fleet crew against their own. Entire warships went rogue. Suspicion and fear ran riot. Surrender seemed like the only option. But Captain Lucas Sterling knows that in the fight against the Sa'Nerra there is only victory or death. Sterling is an Omega Captain. His rank and his command of the Fleet Marauder Invictus were both won in a depraved and monstrous trial of grit and determination. Sterling will do anything to ensure the Sa'Nerra do not prevail. Even if that means killing Fleet crew that have been "turned". Even if that means killing the people he loves. But the neural control weapon is not the only danger Fleet faces. Deep inside the Void the aliens are building a super-weapon. Sterling and his crew must destroy it at all costs. Back on Earth, the United Governments are desperate for peace. Then after fifty years without a single word of contact between the two races, the Sa'Nerra finally send an emissary. But the belligerent alien race sent an emissary of war, not peace. The fate of humanity now lies in the hands of Captain Sterling and the Omega officers of the Invictus. But victory is only possible if he is willing to do anything it takes to win.
