In a small coastal community threatened by developers who would ravage their lands it is a time of fear and confusion and growing anger. The prophet child Tokowaru-i-te-Marama shares his people's struggles against bulldozers and fast money talk. When dramatic events menace the marae, his grief and rage threaten to burst beyond the confines of his twisted body. His all-seeing eye looks forward to a strange and terrible new dawn. Patrica Grace's second novel is a work of spellbinding power in which the myths of older times are inextricably woven into the political realities of today.

The New Life
Author: Orhan Pamuk
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Osman is a young university student whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a mysterious book. Osman becomes obsessed with the book, which seems to contain all the magic and power of life and love. Romantic and elusive, Orhan Pamuk's The New Life is a rhapsody to love and an investigation into the shadowy nature of self.
An international sensation, The Royal Physician's Visit magnificently recasts the dramatic era of Danish history when Johann Friedrich Struensee -- court physician to mad young King Christian -- stepped through an aperture in history and became the holder of absolute power in Denmark. His is a gripping tale of power, sex, love, and the life of the mind, and it is superbly rendered here by one of Sweden's most acclaimed writers. A charismatic German doctor and brilliant intellectual, Struensee used his influence to introduce hundreds of reforms in Denmark in the 1760s. He had a tender and erotic affair with Queen Caroline Mathilde, who was unsatisfied by her unstable, childlike husband. Yet Struensee lacked the subtlety of a skilled politician and the cunning to choose enemies wisely; these flaws proved fatal, and would eventually lead to his tragic demise.

Stonefish is a collection of short stories and poems by the only New Zealand writer to win the Pegasus Prize for M ori Literature and the Booker Prize. 'a The scallops arranged in the spider lambis were succulently decadent. A bottle of rare wine had been reduced to its essence and sprinkled over the raw bodies, and rough salt, and finely-chopped redware. The flush of the shell echoed visually the wine and the seaweed, and although there were but five scallops, they were truly sweet meat. The slices of mild green pepper were almost transparent, and they tangled artfully with shreds of young daikon, and pressure-steamed fragments of ti. Hot and crisp and oily-melting, a challenging blend. And the tea, as always, was Black Dragon tea, a hint of smoky coolness in the steam, and a consummation in the mouth. People died just to get it to these islands she had learned. She could think of many worse reasons to diea.'
Journey Through Upper Bavaria
Author: Martin Siepmann, Ernst-Otto Luthardt
Publisher: Verlagshaus Wurzburg Gmbh & Company Kg
Upper Bavaria is presented as the epitome of all things Bavarian in this travel guide, exploring its magnificent Alpine scenery as well as ancient traditions and festivals where lederhosen and the dirndl are worn with pride. Mountain chalets, their balconies a riot of floral color, are captured in lush green pastures beneath the snow-capped peaks of the Alps. The landscape is illustrated as unique and extremely diverse, with its spectrum ranging from the idyllic valley of the River Altmühl with its gleaming white cliffs and dark juniper forest to the open plains of the Danube. From the fertile, hop-growing slopes of the Hallertau to the glacial moraine of the lakes, the featured array of images culminates in the majestic Alps and Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze. Monasteries, churches, and chapels are depicted, bearing witness to the strong faith of the local populace who proudly uphold the region's many traditional pilgrimages and religious processions, and the great historic significance of this part of the country is manifested in sumptuous palaces and mighty fortresses. The state capital of Munich is revealed as the converging point of history, politics, science, art, and culture, and the city’s many excellent museums and art galleries are explored in detail. Additional features comment on King Ludwig II, Bavarian beer and local cuisine, the art of the Alpine avant-garde, and the colorful processions and pageants preserved throughout the land.
Hightlights some of the best sights, activities, and experiences in Costa Rica, offering itineraries organized by region, theme, and length of trip.
