Book Description
For the first volume of the Arabesque series, Lorena Manuel has created six stories rich in ornate and fantastic imagery. Familiar and obscure folktales, myths, and legends are retold as metaphors that provide an alternate view of burgeoning love between boys. World-weary knights, mournful goddesses, mad queens, and ghostly shadows become catalysts for the baffling and oftentimes painful journey of self-discovery among gay youth. Hermitic lunatics and murderously obsessive lovers delve into the darker themes of homoeroticism. Dragons, abandoned statues, vainglorious fathers, spectral guardians, and sinister servants add to the colorful backdrop through which heroes must fumble their way. Alternately tender, satirical, and scathing, written in a style that’s distinctly baroque and vivid, Arabesque offers...

From Publishers Weekly
In the entertaining second entry in Grimwood's Arabesk trilogy (after Pashazade), Ashraf Bey is now the chief of detectives in the fictional Middle Eastern city of El Iskandryia, located in an alternate future where the Ottoman Empire still exists.

Suspicion attaches to the cryptic owner of Hamzah Enterprises, the father of the woman Bey has fallen for. Terrorist outrages rock El Iskandryia—kidnappings, arson, bombings—while the inquiry takes the sleuth on a journey through the seamy underbelly of his adopted society.

From Publishers Weekly
Employing two narrators, this semi-autobiographical "elaborate tapestry" by an Israeli Arab interweaves the 150-year history of the Shammas clan in Fassuta, a village in northern Israel, with contemporary scenes in Paris and at the University of Iowa. PW said, "The multilayered pyrotechnics are dazzling and sophisticated but may render this work impenetrable for many American readers." Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal
These two novels reflect the turmoil in the divided land from which they stem. Kaniuk, an Israeli Jew, centers the Arab-Israeli conflict in the mind of a "good Arab," the son of an Israeli heroine and a Palestinian scholar. His "confessions," as...

From Booklist
Plus-size Velma Brighton feels uncomfortable in her form-fitting bridesmaid dress, but she'll do anything for her sister Alexis. Velma is attracted to Russ Harrington, the no--nonsense brother of the groom, and the light in his eyes when he sees her is reassuring until doubts creep in. Russ is attracted to Velma, but he hates her lack of self-confidence. Velma's persistent insecurities stem from her belief that her parents didn't love her or her sister. She has always tried to protect Alexis, but no one has helped her. Now it should be Velma's turn for love, if only the two stubborn people can commit. This is the second in Forster's Harrington brothers trilogy exploring the life and loves of the wealthy African American family from suburban Baltimore. Difficult to follow unless the first is read, it will please readers of...

Philosophical Arabesques

Book Description
Bukharin’s Philosophical Arabesques was written while he was imprisoned in the Lubyanka Prison in Moscow, facing a trial on charges of treason and the likelihood of execution. After the death of Lenin, Bukharin co-operated with Stalin for a time. Once Stalin’s supremacy was assured he began eliminating all potential rivals. For Bukharin, the process was to end with his confession before the Soviet court, facing the threat that his young family would be killed along with him if he did not. While awaiting his death, Bukharin wrote prolifically. He considered Philosophical Arabesques as the most important of his prison writings. In its pages, he covers the full range of issues in Marxist philosophy—the sources of knowledge, the nature of truth, freedom and necessity, the relationship of Hegelian and...
