What does it take to survive? This is the question posed by the extraordinary Finnish novella that has taken the Nordic literary scene by storm. 1867: a year of devastating famine in Finland. Marja, a farmer’s wife from the north, sets off on foot through the snow with her two young children. Their goal: St Petersburg, where people say there is bread. Others are also heading south, just as desperate to survive. Ruuni, a boy she meets, seems trustworthy. But can anyone really help? Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘Like Cormac McCarthy’sThe Road, this apocalyptic story deals with the human will to survive. And let me be honest: There will come a point in this book where you can take no more of the snow-covered desolation. But then the first rays of spring sun appear and our belief in the human spirit revives. A stunning tale.’Meike Ziervogel ‘White Hungeris Aki Ollikainen’s debut work, but it is written with the control of someone who has mastered the form.’Nicholas Lezard,Guardian ‘Such a powerful, honest and thought-provoking story deserves an audience far beyond the shores of Scandinavia.’Pam Norfolk,Lancashire Evening Post ‘Impossible not to respond to its raw, unsparing drama.’Elizabeth Bucan,Daily Mail ‘A tale of epic substance compacted into a mere seven-score pages.’Ben Paynter,Los Angeles Review of Books

For young Paris Branch, life is about to begin. Newly eighteen, she is ready to leave the limitations of her small-town life behind. Carson, Virginia, may be where she was born, but it's not where she sees her future. An inbound freshman at Howard University, she has her eyes on a bright, new life in the nation's capital. There, she will truly blossom into the woman she is destined to be. She can't wait to start her journey. For Billy, it is love at first sight. Paris is slightly older, and Billy slightly wiser; and a romance between two people of different races presents a complication. Both know that their budding love is a problem. In 1965, interracial romance is a dangerous dream to pursue. Determined to win her heart, no matter the cost or peril, Billy romances her with a single-minded pursuit. Despite their differences in age and race, her future and his present, and the crippling intolerance and racism their relationship faces, they will fight for their love...together.

This collection investigates modern imperialist practices and their management of hunger through its punctuated distribution amongst asymmetrically related marginal populations. Drawing on relevant material from Egypt, Ireland, India, Ukraine, and other regions of the globe, The Aesthetics and Politics of Global Hunger is a rigorously comparative study made up of ten essays by well-established scholars from universities around the world. Since modernity, we have been inhabitants of a globe increasingly connected through discourses of equal access for all humans to the resources of the planet, but the volume emphasizes alongside this reality the flagrant politicization of those same resources. From this emphasis, the essays in the volume place into relief the idea that ideological and aesthetic discourses of hunger could inform ethical thinking and practices about who or what constitutes the figure of the modern historical human.

Most textbooks are cumbersome to carry, expensive to buy, difficult to read, and boring. They have no plot, no characterization, no suspense, no climax. What they have are facts. If Dragnet's Sgt. Friday were Scientist Friday, the script wouldn't be much different "just the facts, ma'am." Students can't escape textbooks. But like death and taxes, they are necessary evils. of old ideas makes room for new ones. Death makes room for new people and the death Taxes are the dues we pay to live in a country. Everybody gets stuck with paying some kind of dues and students are no exception. Students pay dues in the form of tuition to listen to professors lecture, and they also pay dues in what a former governor of California called' 'psychic bucks" -time, concentration, independent study, reading textbooks like this one-to come up with the correct answers to exam questions. Textbooks on economics will tell you about where our tuition bucks come from. This book is about where our psychic bucks come from and the forces that can bankrupt our psychic nest eggs.
