Zarah Ghahramani was born in Tehran in 1981, two years after Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran to establish the Islamic Republic. Zarah's life changed suddenly in 2001 when, after having taken part in student demonstrations, she was arrested (literally snatched off the street by security agents and bundled into the back of a car) and charged with 'inciting crimes against the people of the Islamic Republic of Iran'. Her interrogation was harsh - while imprisoned in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison her head was shaved, and she was beaten and sexually abused. After being released, she was not permitted to return to her university studies, and came to realise that she had no future in her native land. Robert Hillman, an Australian writer, eventually helped get her to Australia, where she now has permanent residency. My Life As a Traitor is a tremendously powerful and beautifully written memoir of Zarah's life in Iran, revealing the human face behind the headlines describing the turmoil of the modern Middle East.

Winner of the National Book Award! Young Octavian is being raised by a group of rational philosophers known only by numbers -- but it is only after he opens a forbidden door that he learns the hideous nature of their experiments, and his own chilling role in them. Set in Revolutionary Boston, M. T. Anderson’s mesmerizing novel takes place at a time when Patriots battled to win liberty while African slaves were entreated to risk their lives for a freedom they would never claim. The first of two parts, this deeply provocative novel reimagines the past as an eerie place that has startling resonance for readers today.

An Afrikaner crime reporter returns home to face the evil and complex legacy of South African apartheid in “a witness-bearing act of the rarest courage” (Michael Kerr). Rian Malan’s classic work of reportage, My Traitor’s Heart is at once beautiful, horrifying, and profound in ways that earned him comparisons to Michael Herr and Ryszard Kapuściński and inspired the London Times to call him “South Africa’s Hunter S. Thompson.” An Afrikaner, Malan is the scion of a centuries-old clan deeply involved in the creation of apartheid. As a young crime reporter, he covered the atrocities of an undeclared race war and ultimately fled the country, unhinged by what he had seen. Eight years later, he returns to confront his own demons, and those that are tearing his country apart. With unflinching candor, Malan explores the grizzly violence and perverse rationalizations at the root of his nation’s identity. Written in the final years of apartheid’s bloody collapse, My Traitor’s Heart still resonates, offering a “passionate, blazingly honest testament” to the darkest recesses of the black and white South African psyches. “Those who read it will never again see South Africa the same way” (Los Angeles Times Book Review).

Right up until his death in 2008, John Leonard was a lion in American letters. A passionate, erudite, and wide-ranging critic, he helped shape the landscape of modern literature. He reviewed the most celebrated writers of his age—from Kurt Vonnegut and Joan Didion to Toni Morrison and Thomas Pynchon. He championed Morrison’s work so ardently that she invited him to travel with her to Stockholm when she accepted her Nobel Prize. He also contributed many pieces on television, film, politics, and the media, which continue to surprise and impress with their fervor and prescience. Reading for My Life is a monumental collection of Leonard’s most significant writings—spanning five decades—from his earliest columns for the Harvard Crimson to his final essays for The New York Review of Books. Here are Leonard’s best writings—many never before published in book form—on the cultural touchstones of a generation, each piece a testament to his sharp wit, fierce intelligence, and lasting love of the arts. Definitive reviews of Doris Lessing, Vladimir Nabokov, Maxine Hong Kingston, Tom Wolfe, Don DeLillo, Milan Kundera, and Philip Roth, among others, display his passion and nearly encyclopedic knowledge of literature in the second half of the twentieth century. His essay on Ed Sullivan and the evolution of television remains a classic. Throughout Leonard’s reviews and essays is a dedicated political spirit, pleading for social justice, advocating for the women’s movement, and forever calling attention to writers whose work challenged and excited him. With an introduction by E. L. Doctorow and remembrances by Leonard’s friends, family, and colleagues, including Gloria Steinem and Victor Navasky, Reading for My Life stands as a landmark collection from one of America’s most beloved and influential critics.

How did I get here? It’s taken 19 years to get to where I am today, and even now, I don’t know it all yet, but I’ll try and cover it as best I can. I am an explosive individual who loves his work, is passionate about life, and has wild dreams. English was my favorite subject in school, and introduced me to a world of reading and writing, but that never took off until one of my greatest dreams was crushed. It was in the midst of the heartache that I found writing was an amazing way to let off the emotions that were bottled up inside. And now, three years down the track, it’s become something I do out of force of habit—express what I’m feeling through poetry.

This Poetry collection is from a larger amount of Poetry written over a period of 35 years. A number of the Poems as in the B-Section is inspired by keen insight into human history. Others Poems are celebrating human life in a beautiful and powerful Universe, but also describing the battle of life and death in nature. Others are particularly describing the interplay with humans in rough scenarios. Some of the history-inspired Poetry may fall into the Epic category, while others are more descriptive and communicating powerful scenes in all the categories of; Life and Nature; Love & Dreams; The nature and the Universe and Historical Constellations. A substantial part of this collection is of course triggered by inspiration only and leaves the reader to interpret and create his or hers pictures; for thus to fall into the definition of Art; as they will inevitably contribute by their own creation; in a similar way as painter leaves it up to the viewer to fulfill a smaller or larger part of the creation. My pen-name Jack Town is again being brought in as the name represents so many facets of writing that it could not be fully attributed to just one person. “A lot of human experiences and reactions can only become a mental asset if the one facing them sits down and work it out in poesy or prose.” Tgjr
