Kim Chernin's mother was a leftist firebrand, an American Marxist at mid-century, when it was dangerous to be one. Her father, a quiet man, was no less radical. Why then, decades later, does their daughter--a liberal California psychoanalyst and writer--find herself drawn toward a spirituality that would have shocked her parents? Through three personal stories, Chernin tackles the questions that pull at all of us: how to make sense in a world whose order isn't always apparent, and how to find balance between the mind and the spirit. "Kim Chernin writes with immediacy and intimacy."--City Life, London.

Stars Stars twinkling in the night, High in the sky is right, Shooting star goes in flight, Wishing on it as we like. Twinkle, twinkle, every where, Letting us know it is still there, High up above we all stare, Showing the stars we still care. Guiding us when we lose our way, Telling us bunk down and stay, The flares glow as the stars may, For help will come for us today. Falling stars will not hit the ground, For they do not make a sound, Looking for them they emit be found, They disappeared in the mound. Happy days are here again To see them glow after the rain, See the millions of them arrange, Into the big dipper that is strange. Taking shape in the sky, Making it easy for you and 1, To see what is out there we need to rely, On a telescope to see what space hides, To see the planets with your own eyes.

Winner of the 2005 AKO Literatuurprijs - a true Dutch bestseller Translated by Liz Waters Throughout his long career Jan Siebelink has brought to life dozens of characters, yet never before has he come as close to his own roots as in this new novel. In My Fathers Garden is the gripping story of a father-son relationship, in which the father becomes obsessed by a fire-and-brimstone Calvinism. Hans Sievez has a profoundly religious experience at a decisive moment in his life. He is convinced he has been in direct contact with God. During the ensuing quest for eternal life, he loses control over himself, and his contact with his surroundings. This ultimately threatens his marriage and his relationship with his two sons. The local Calvinist congregation increases its power over him. Jan Siebelink describes the battle of a man who is no match for the irrational persuasions of faith. In My Fathers Garden is a moving novel of a love that is gradually overwhelmed, but will never disappear. `In Dutch I have never read a novel so pure and therefore written so well. He deserves all the prizes we have this year.' -Vrij Nederland

Spanning half a life, My Father's Garden tells the story of a young doctor--the unnamed narrator--as he negotiates love and sexuality, his need for companionship, and the burdens of memory and familial expectation. The opening section, 'Lover', finds him studying medicine in Jamshedpur. At college, he discovers an all-consuming passion for Samir, a junior, who possesses his body, mind and heart. Yet, on their last morning together, when he asks Samir to kiss him goodbye, his lover tells him, 'A kiss is only for someone special.' In 'Friend', the young doctor, escaping heartbreak, finds relief in Pakur where he strikes up an unusual friendship with Bada Babu, the head clerk of the hospital where he is posted. In Bada Babu's house, they indulge a shared love for drink, delicious food and convivial company. But when government bulldozers arrive to tear down the neighbourhood, and Bada Babu's house, the young doctor uncovers a sordid tale of apathy and exploitation--and a side to his new friend that leaves him disillusioned. And in 'Father', unable, ultimately, to flee the pain, the young doctor takes refuge in his parents' home in Ghatsila. As he heals, he reflects on his father--once a vital man who had phenomenal success at work and in Adivasi politics, then an equally precipitous downfall--and wonders if his obsessive gardening has anything to do with the choices his son has made. Written with deep empathy and searing emotional intensity, and in the clear, unaffected prose that is the hallmark of Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar's style, My Father's Garden marks a major talent of Indian fiction writing at the top of his form.
