♥ Book Title : A Grain of Wheat
☯ Full Synopsis : "Barack Obama, via Facebook: “A compelling story of how the transformative events of history weigh on individual lives and relationships.” The Nobel Prize–nominated Kenyan writer’s best-known novel Set in the wake of the Mau Mau rebellion and on the cusp of Kenya's independence from Britain, A Grain of Wheat follows a group of villagers whose lives have been transformed by the 1952–1960 Emergency. At the center of it all is the reticent Mugo, the village's chosen hero and a man haunted by a terrible secret. As we learn of the villagers' tangled histories in a narrative interwoven with myth and peppered with allusions to real-life leaders, including Jomo Kenyatta, a masterly story unfolds in which compromises are forced, friendships are betrayed, and loves are tested.

♥ Book Title : Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is a comprehensive interpretation of all of Ngugi's works. During the last four decades he has proved to be one of the most exceptional writers whose work is meaningful both to the workers of Kenya and to international intellectuals. This book discusses his philosophy, the various graduations of style he has adopted, his social and political focus, and his ultimate vision and aspirations. Each work of fiction is examined in depth, while his non-fiction is systematically analyzed. There is a separate chapter on each of Ngugi's novels from "The River Between" and "Weep Not, Child" to "Matigari." There are also studies of his drama and his short stories. A critical biography and a careful scrutiny of his social commentaries in the popular press help trace the early formation of his ideological position. Extensive use has been made of "Detained: A Writer's Prison Diary" and of his influential lectures and writings in "Decolonising the Mind, Moving the Centre," and "Writers in Politics.""Article| David Cook| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : In Praise of Flattery
☯ Full Synopsis : "Where would we be without flattery? Hobbes deemed it an honorable duty and Meredith called it the ?finest of the arts.? Alexander the Great applied it as imperial policy; Caesar and Cleopatra were masters of it; and Napoleon devoured it like candy. But flattery also has influential enemies. Cicero called flattery ?the handmaid of vice? and Tacitus compared it to poison.ø ø In a work as erudite as it is entertaining, Willis Goth Regier looks into flattery as an element as flammable (and as taken for granted) as oxygen. Giving flattery light, attention, and care, Regier treats readers to hundreds of historical examples drawn from the highest social circles in politics, romance, and religion, from the courts of Byzantium and China to Paris, Rome, and Washington, DC. ø Because flattery must please, it is playful and creative, and Regier?s book makes the most of it, moving with light steps, now and then pausing to take in the view. Ambitious flatterers even seek to flatter God, a practice Regier treats with trepidation. This is a book for those who would understand the history, tactics, and pleasures of flattery, not least the thrill of danger. ø ?O, flatter me, for love delights in praises.??Shakespeare ø ?The whole World and the Bus?ness of it, is Manag?d by Flattery and Paradox; the one sets up False Gods, and the other maintains them.??Sir Roger L?Estrange ø ?Just praise is only a debt, but flattery is a present.??Samuel Johnson ø ?In this disorganized society, in which the passions of the people are the sole real force, authority belongs to the party that understands how to flatter.??Hippolyte Taine"Article| Willis Goth Regier| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Night
☯ Full Synopsis : "Born into a Jewish ghetto in Hungary, as a child, Elie Wiesel was sent to the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald. This is his account of that atrocity: the ever-increasing horrors he endured, the loss of his family and his struggle to survive in a world that stripped him of humanity, dignity and faith. Describing in simple terms the tragic murder of a people from a survivor's perspective, Night is among the most personal, intimate and poignant of all accounts of the Holocaust. A compelling consideration of the darkest side of human nature and the enduring power of hope, it remains one of the most important works of the twentieth century. New translation by Marion Wiesel, with a new introduction by Elie Wiesel."Article| Elie Wiesel| Statement ..."
