When the Ku Klux Klan’s unwelcome reappearance rattles Stella’s segregated southern town, bravery battles prejudice in this New York Times bestselling Depression-era “novel that soars” (The New York Times Book Review) that School Library Journal called “storytelling at its finest” in a starred review. Stella lives in the segregated South—in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can’t. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn’t bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they’re never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella’s community—her world—is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don’t necessarily signify an end.

An exploration of life's mysteries prompted by the author's young son asking: Where on earth is heaven? This led to the TV series, The Long Search, and to film making in the African Bush with Laurence van der Post, the hill temples of northern India, San Francisco, a Taiwanese funeral, by train to Arcadia and by bicycle through the lanes of Cornwall -and through his encounter with scientists, artists and philosophers. He believes that a new spirituality is emerging that goes beyond the dualism inherent in phrases like 'spirit and matter', life and death', heaven and earth'.

'A tour de force of sustained brilliance' Mail on Sunday Wildly funny and unceasingly surprising, Quicksand is both a satirical masterpiece and an unforgettable story of fate, family and friendship. Aldo Benjamin may be the unluckiest soul in human history, but that isn't going to stop his friend Liam writing about him. For what more could an aspiring novelist want from his muse than a thousand get-rich-quick schemes, a life-long love affair, an eloquently named brothel, the most sexually confusing evening imaginable and a brief conversation with God? 'What a joy to surrender oneself to a writer of such prodigious talent.' Peter Carey 'Tremendous' Sunday Times
