DESCRIPTION:

In the Fall of 1938 a young Canadian called Thorsen boards an ocean liner in New York heading for Rio. Who is he? An innocent dupe sent on a dangerous adventure, a chump who only survives because he has the coveted ‘Aryan look’? Or maybe he’s something else — a smooth soldier of fortune, easy with women, guns, radios and the inexorable force of history? “The pursuit of food is the pursuit of intelligence,” says Colonel Powell, a sophisticated American WW 1 veteran who might be doing more than just surveying coffee plantations.

Rogues and ideologues, spies and gangsters, samba girls and models, refugees and paramilitary squads… Brazil 1939 under the Estado Novo, which looks to Germany and Italy for its cultural inspiration while trying to hedge its political fortune by playing them off against the Gringo Axis.

The raw tropical landscape of mid-century Brazil allows the narrative to become paranormal, like forgotten events intruding from a parallel universe. A killer jungle cat prowls the lush gardens of the fascist elite and the slums of the radicalized poor. A death squad hunts a voodoo gang in the local rainforest. German spies attempt to establish a radio network. A Canadian agent disseminates comic book pornography in order to embarrass President Vargas and the Estado Novo. Miss Berlin tries to make a living as a magician’s assistant, later as a model in Rio. A local aviatrix sells Italian fighter planes. Nazi SS soldiers fight with Soviet headhunter proxies in the Amazon jungle. The Sigma Corporation rents the last Zeppelin airship. Murder, mayhem, exotic romance: this is Radio Brazil, 1939.

DESCRIPTION:

With the men away at war, women in a small village are intoxicated by their new freedom, in this “story that will hold readers from beginning to end” (Booklist).

When the men of a remote Hungarian village go off to war in 1916, the women left behind realize their lives are much better without them. Suddenly, they are not being beaten; they have time for friendships; they even find romance with the injured Italian soldiers staying just outside of town.

For Sari, an intelligent girl who’s always been an outcast–her fellow villagers suspect her of being a witch because of her medical knowledge–it’s the first time in her life she’s had friends. When the men return at war’s end, the freedom Sari and the others have enjoyed is suddenly snatched from them, and they realize they need to do whatever it takes to get it back. Sari puts her medical knowledge to use to make that happen–but as events spiral out of control, her attempt to take matters into her own hands may mean her problems are only beginning, in this remarkable novel inspired by real events.

He is the only person who can keep his loved ones from being stolen away after dark, and to do so he will have to convince them to trust him again.

DESCRIPTION:

A Vision of Empathy is entertaining, funny, heart-warming and inspirational; and for the autism community and beyond, it is destined to make long-lasting changes for the better.

“Empathetic, professionally illustrated & insightful.” – Anna Kennedy OBE, Founder, Autism’s Got Talent

Noah does some bizarre things. Most of everything he does is peculiar. Why? Sadey thinks there’s just no explanation! But with the help of some amazing animals and crazy critters, Sadey gets a glimpse inside of Noah’s world and learns that, just maybe, there’s a reason for everything!

A Vision of Empathy is autism awareness and anti-bullying at its finest. With an engaging story and beautiful illustrations, it will leave a mark in the minds of all who read it.

By following Sadey, as she embarks on a journey of discovery, the reader is introduced to several widely misunderstood autistic traits. One by one, the reason for each becomes clear, and when things are clear, they are accepted as ‘normal’. The lesson occurs naturally, in a genuinely entertaining story.

Every behaviour is a form of communication; every action connected to a person’s emotions, thoughts, values and wishes. A Vision of Empathy explores this concept by showing the world as Noah sees it. The results are illuminating for all.
