In this poetic memoir, which won the Pura BelprÃ© Author Award, was a YALSA Nonfiction Finalist, and was named a Walter Dean Myers Award Honoree, acclaimed author Margarita Engle tells of growing up as a child of two cultures during the Cold War.
Margarita is a girl from two worlds. Her heart lies in Cuba, her motherâ€™s tropical island country, a place so lush with vibrant life that it seems like a fairy tale kingdom. But most of the time she lives in Los Angeles, lonely in the noisy city and dreaming of the summers when she can take a plane through the enchanted air to her beloved island. Words and images are her constant companions, friendly and comforting when the children at school are not.
Then a revolution breaks out in Cuba. Margarita fears for her far-away family. When the hostility between Cuba and the United States erupts at the Bay of Pigs Invasion, Margaritaâ€™s worlds collide in the worst way possible. How can the two countries she loves hate each other so much? And will she ever get to visit her beautiful island again?

This critical companion is the first compendium of wide-ranging scholarship on Tabish Khair, who has emerged as a powerful voice in contemporary Indian English Literature. The essays in this collection examine Khair's novels and poetical collections in ways that yield new insights which are central to the understanding of Khair as a writer, and why he categorically refuses to assign his works with any literary genre. This critical anthology not only focuses new light on the thematic, social or cultural issues of Khair's writings, but also the in-depth reading of his multi-layered texts enable the readers to rethink the position of the author from an international and broader intellectual context.

Pitcairn Island As A Port Of Call
Pitcairn Island is arguably the most isolated inhabited spot on Earth. Yet despite tricky ocean currents, oft-times lethal surf, and sudden gales off its coast, the island's standing as the home of the descendants of Fletcher Christian and his mutineer cohorts from H.M.S. Bounty has drawn thousands of ships to its shores. This maritime history of the island chronicles every ship that has called at Pitcairn from the time of the arrival of the mutineers in 1790 to December 2010. The ship's log format lists the date of each call, the ship's name and particulars, and brief reports of activities during the call, which often include matters of love, murder, survival, intrigue, shipwreck, romance, and much more. Since Pitcairn remains totally dependent on ships for its survival, this work represents the most thorough history of the island and its people.
