When life gets your goat, bring in the herd Jennifer McGaha never expected to own a goat named Merle. Or to be setting Merle up on dates and naming his doeling Merlene. She didn't expect to be buying organic yogurt for her chickens. She never thought she would be pulling camouflage carpet off her ceiling or rescuing opossums from her barn and calling it "date night." Most importantly, Jennifer never thought she would only have $4.57 in her bank account. When Jennifer discovered that she and her husband owed back taxes—a lot of back taxes—her world changed. Now desperate to save money, they foreclosed on their beloved suburban home and moved their family to a one-hundred-year-old cabin in a North Carolina holler. Soon enough, Jennifer's life began to more closely resemble her Appalachian ancestors than her upper-middle-class upbringing. But what started as a last-ditch effort to settle debts became a journey that revealed both the joys and challenges of living close to the land. Told with bold wit, unflinching honesty, and a firm foot in the traditions of Appalachia, Flat Broke with Two Goats blends stories of homesteading with the journey of two people rediscovering the true meaning of home.

Urania Cabral, a New York lawyer, returns to the Dominican Republic after a lifelong self-imposed exile. Once she is back in her homeland, the elusive feeling of terror that has overshadowed her whole life suddenly takes shape. Urania's own story alternates with the powerful climax of dictator Rafael Trujillo's reign. In 1961, Trujillo's decadent inner circle (which includes Urania's soon-to-be disgraced father) enjoys the luxuries of privilege while the rest of the nation lives in fear and deprivation. As Trujillo clings to power, a plot to push the Dominican Republic into the future is being formed. But after the murder of its hated dictator, the Goat, is carried out, the Dominican Republic is plunged into the nightmare of a bloody and uncertain aftermath. Now, thirty years later, Urania reveals how her own family was fatally wounded by the forces of history. In The Feast of the Goat Mario Vargas Llosa eloquently explores the effects of power and violence on the lives of both the oppressors and those they victimized. 'The Feast of the Goat will stand out as the great emblematic novel of Latin America's twentieth century and removes One Hundred Years of Solitude of that title.' Times Literary Supplement

Albert Fahrnbauer vows on his Mother’s deathbed that he will dedicate his life to the service of Mankind. He will develop a new scientific system of portraiture through color matched to each personality - a portrait that reveals a blueprint toward a radiant better life. But he has a problem. His portraits are terrible. Nobody wants them. He marries Barbara, a fellow art student, with the understanding she will help him develop his system. They will have no children. He wants her to join him every step of the way, painting only with his scientific mixtures. Unfortunately. Barbara prefers her free-spirited, messy way of painting. Her portraits sell, but she cheats on his system Volume 2 opens when they leave Florida for Atlanta, GA. They buy 14 acres on a hilltop. Albert is thrilled with the view all the way to Atlanta beyond the trees. Barbara is appalled at the crappy old house, no hot water, and a bathroom outside on the porch. They are both city people with romantic ideas. They want to live off the land, milk goats, and grow vegetables. They have no farming experience whatsoever. They make hilarious mistakes, suffer emotional traumas over crops and animals, endure periods of starvation, moments of euphoria, and violent arguments over ways to paint. It is also the time of Civil Rights, the 1950s. Their landlord visits them at Christmas with a K.K. Klan buddy. The preacher, politicians, neighbors and customers oppose any change in the racial customs and treatment of Negro people. Albert confronts them with his humanitarian philosophy. All people have a unique and wonderful radiance of living color, he tells them. His system will prove it - if only Barbara will use it. So goes the story of their different personalities, where each of them came from, and how their backgrounds inspire, damage, and diverge throughout their lives together.

Flying with a Broken Wing tells the true story of a boy growing up in India in turbulent times. Sat Mehta was five years old when he and his family became refugees, caught up in the biggest migration in modern history at the time of Independence. His home was destroyed, his uncle murdered. Once very wealthy farmers, the Mehtas became destitute. Later, Sat suffered a broken arm - complications set in and amputation seemed inevitable. As he lay in hospital, a world famous surgeon, Professor Robert Roaf, strode on to the ward, choosing "hopeless cases" to help. Sat got a second chance. The gratitude he felt for the great man's skill shaped the rest of Sat's life. He qualified as a doctor and arrived in England, where he has lived and worked for 30 years. He says of his life: "It is a story of a disappearing world, sadhus, snakes and baking sun, monkeys, monsoons and riot and murder. As a boy, I saw it all."
