Srinivas, an elderly Brahmin, has been living in a south London suburb for thirty years. After the death of his son, and later of his wife, this lonely man is befriended by an englishwoman in her sixties, whom he takes into his home. The two form a deep and abiding relationship. But the haven they have created for themselves proves to be a fragile one. Racist violence enters their world and Srinivas’s life changes irrevocably—as does his dream of England as a country of tolerance and equality. Kamala Markandaya was one of India’s most politically acute and prescient novelists. In this troubling and compassionate story, originally published in 1973, she foreshadows many of the issues of diaspora and race that we face in today’s world.

"Marlon Fick is one of the most fluent writers in American today." -Robert Hass "Impressive and magnificent-a serene lyricism and narration which is both tender and passionate. Destined one day to be a classic." -Myriam Moscona for National Public TV, Mexico "Marlon Fick is a writer of high energy, imagination, and intelligence. His work is for the human voice and the human ear." -Thomas Lux "Marlon L. Fick joins an honorable group of ex-patriot American writers-Katherine Ann Porter, Hart Crane-making the most out of the Latin Experience." -Jonathan Holden The Nowhere Man follows the life and travels of an American novelist, Bolivar Collins, from his youth to adulthood through the later half of the 20th century, a time of war and political turmoil. Socially awkward and introverted, Collins looks for answers in books of philosophy, trying to understand the chaos around him and the chaos he feels. When he cannot find explanations for the mysteries of human behavior, human sexuality, love, war, etc., he attempts to apply philosophical explanations, which in turn results in a dark irony. Rapid changes in settings-from the United States, to France and Spain, then to Gabon, the Congo, and Zaire, then to Cuba, Nicaragua, and Mexico-echo Collin's own evolution, while external forces beyond his control place him directly in the path of history: The man, who began as a bookish adolescent, is compelled to participate in the Nicaraguan Civil War, presumably as "a spy." Caught between allegiances (the United States vs. his family, now Cuban) Collins becomes a fugitive, wanted by the FBI and the CIA.

"Another winner from a top-tier thriller writer." —Kirkus Reviews Daniel Brasher left a high-paying job as a money manager to marry his community-organizer wife and do the work he loves, leading group counseling sessions with recently paroled ex-cons. Now he's about to start a private practice. But just before his last day on the job, Daniel finds an envelope in his department mailbox—one intended for someone else that was placed in his slot by accident. Inside it is an unsigned piece of paper, a note that says only "admit what you've done or you will bleed for it." along with a midnight deadline...which has passed. And the person to whom the envelope was addressed was found brutally murdered... "A fast-paced roller coaster ride...well-written and extremely realistic." —Criminal Element Soon, Daniel finds more warnings in his office mail, to people that the police cannot track down, and to victims that cannot be saved. Daniel's efforts, however, have alerted the killer to his involvement... and the next threat he receives is his own. Now, Daniel—with no clue what he's supposed to have done or to what action he must confess—must somehow appease, or outwit, a seemingly unstoppable killer. And time is running out... "Menace, treachery, and intrigue have never been more exciting." —The Washington Post
