Struan Sinclair (b. ca 1972, Toronto). "Automatic World, the exhilarating debut novel by Struan Sinclair, is a subtle meditation on the way we think and the storieds we create to give our lives meaning. .Four strands spanning several generations are woven together through the fragmented consciousness of a patient in rehabilitation after an accident that leaves him stuck in present tense. Unable to recall who he is, where he is from, or who he knows, and determined to access his history, the patient harvests and assembles the narratives of his friends, family, and other witnesses. Out of this miscellany emerge surprising tales: of Merrick, an inventor who dreams of a clockwork universe; Dory, a girl who commits a mercy killing ata local hospice; Merle, whose repeated suicide attempts bind him to his es tranged son; and finally, the narrator's own elusive past. Between these threads is the story of a train crash and of three minutes lost - three minutes that will prove a turning point in the lives of all the characters caught in this intricate web." - from the dj Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 16.00

"'In the beginning was lust,' Herman Broder, the heroof Mr Singer's new novel, tells himself. These words express perfectly the theme of 'Enemies, A Love Story'. WHat makes this novel different is the f antastic story it relates: only a master storyteller could have contrived to give such fresh embodiment to an age-old theme. Broder, whose family was wiped out in the Nazi holocaust in Poland, escapes death by hiding in a village hayloft for two years. He is now living in an apartment in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn with his second wife, Yadwiga, the Polish peasantgirl who helped him escape. He is also deeply involved with beautiful Mash a Tortshiner, who is separated from her husband and who looks forward to his periodic visits. Though Yadwiga believes Herman to be a book salesman, who has to take frequent sales trips, he actually earns a living by working as ghost-writer for the 'dynamic' Rabbi Lampert. Suddenly Herman learns thathis first wife, Tamara, has survived and is in America. Soon all three wom en know the truth about one another's roles in Herman's life. Tamara, Yadwiga, and Masha each proposes her own solution to the dilemma. Herman alone has no solution. This is the love story of three -- or is it four? -- 'enemies', and the reader wtill follow it to its end with fascination" - from thedustjacket.

"On a broad canvas peopled by lustyand infinitely various characters, Isaac Bashevis Singer has pained the co mplex story of the wealthy Moskat family of Warsaw. Reb Meshulam Moskat, his third wife, his sons, daughters, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, factotums, employees, friends, and enemies -- these are the vivid actors of the human story played out in Warsaw between the last part of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the Second World War. Inside and outside the ghetto -- then the great Jewish community of Europe -- the Moskats were important and influential. The tally of their loves, hatreds, jealousies, fortunes,and misfortunes -- and those of the numerous individuals whom they control led and influenced -- makes up a panoramic novel of imposing vitality. 'TheFamily Moskat' is in one sense a living memorial to a vanished world. In a ntoher it is one highly colored chapter in the history of mankind. As either it is a novel of compelling fascination." - from the dustjacket. Very good in short-closed-torn dustjacket. A nice, bright, tidy copy. 25.00

"Much progress has been made recently in research into the prehistory of Western Asia, as the results of excavations of several Neolithic sites have become available. In this work, written during a sabbatical at the Institute of Archaeology in London, the author provides acritical examination of these results and assesses our knowledge of the de velopment of Neolithic cultures of the nuclear region between the east coast of the Mediterranean and eastern Iran. Accepting food production as the principal trait of Neolithic cultures - and, indeed, the only one of the classic Childean criteria which can be applied to all the sites of Western Asia - the author discusses the earliest domestication of important species ofplants and animals and also the prehistoric trade patterns defined by the study of obsidian artifacts." - from the dj.

"The book Multilingualism presents the socio-psychological reality of multilingualism in India. It demonstrates that our present knowledge about Indian multilingualism is to be taken as a warning for anyone studying the behaviour of multilinguals with general enterprise ofgrammar and language use. In particular, the book illustrates the issues o f nationalism, language identity, language choice, and language strategy with the help of language value theory. The book also tries to investigate asto how multilingualism in India being an established fact is supported by the current socio-cultural, educational and political systems, and how the Indians are neither in tension nor in counter tension when they are in the vortex of multiple identities." - from the dj. Contents: Introduction. 1. Building Models of Bilingualism: Opening Pandora's Box; 2. Approaching Multilingualism; 3. Language Value: A New Window; 4. Language Choice and Strategy; 5.

"This book is primarily concerned with the efforts which the Yugoslavs have made since the Second World War under the leadership of the Communist Party to industrialise an economically under-developed country and to grapple with the problems of cultural diversity within a multinational federation. These developments are set in the context of the geographical framework of modern Yugoslavia and the historical experience of the Yugoslav peoples during the period before the creation of the first Yugoslav state. The book traces the stages through which the Yugoslav system has evolved since the abandonment of the Soviet model after the Cominform dispute of 1948; the initiation of a unique system of workers' self-management; the opening up of economic and political relations with westsern Europe; the attempt to develop a theory of market socialism; and the more recent tightening of social disciplnie whcih has accompanied the reassertion by the Communists of the Leninist concept of democratic centralism." - from the dustjacket.

(12),13-152,(8). 8vo, decorated black card covers with illustrated grey paper jacket, green and black lettering to front cover, black lettering to spine. "In 'The Geography of Arrival', George Sipos revisits the city of London, Ontario, where his family settled after immigrating to Canada from Hungary in 1957. Divided into short chapters, each related to a different local landmark -- street, building, neighbourhood -- the book traces aninterior, personal geography across the particular physical and cultural l andscape of 1960s London. In stories a [sic] diverse as the baffling discovery of a toy hockey-player in a cereal box, the philosophical dilemmas of learning to swim, the strange satisfactions of public speaking and of fencing lessons, a surreal attempt to live-trap a rabbit in a park, and discoveries about death and space travel, the book traverses a terrain where childhood memory intersects with the big questions of life. The year a fall-out shelter at the Western Fair eclipsed the All-Electric Dream Home was also theyear the imminence of nuclear annihilation scarred a generation. In one of the book's most absorbing passages, the stage-fright of an old priest unab le to cope with the changes brought about by the Second Vatican Council leads to an understanding of the compassion necessary for living in the world." - from the rear cover. Small bump to lower rear fore-corner, else very good. Signed and inscribed by Sipos on the title page. 25.00

The author discusses university education in forestry at Toronto, its background andthe people and events that have influenced its development from 1907 to th e present. Other matters that have influenced the development of forestry in Canada (especially Ontario), such as the fluctuations of the economy, government policies, and advances in technology are dealt with in careful detail. Canada's natural resources have made its past development possible; theexploitation of the apparently inexhaustible forests helped provide capita l assets and support industrial development. This exploitation reduced production on choice forest sites for the future and set the stage for the growing movement toward a more positive approach to forest management. The author's concern with the transition in forestry from exploitation to management of forest resources will be of interest to professionals in all areas of the forest industries." - from the dj.
