French Inside Out
First published in 1993. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
As the Red Scare grips America, a midwestern literature professor becomes an unlikely hero in the struggle for freedom Professor Silas Timberman has never been one for theatrics. A quiet American literature professor at a mid-sized college, Timberman decides to build a semester’s course around the democratic ideals of Mark Twain—a subject that under normal circumstances would not arouse the suspicions of the university administration. But as the Korean War rages on and congressional investigations of potential Communists gain traction, no amount of ideological nuance is safe. When Timberman is asked to renounce his work or face the repercussions, he finds that not only his tenure but also his very freedom is at stake. Inspired by Fast’s own persecution at the hands of the House Un-American Activities Committee, Silas Timberman is a gripping record of the injustices of McCarthyism and a rousing ode to those who fought against it. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
The Swallows Of Kabul
Since the ascendancy of the Taliban the lives of Mosheen and his beautiful wife, Zunaira, have been gradually destroyed. Mosheen's dream of becoming a diplomat has been shattered and Zunaira can no longer even appear on the streets of Kabul unveiled. Atiq is a jailer who guards those who have been condemned to death; the darkness of prison and the wretchedness of his job have seeped into his soul. Atiq's wife, Musarrat, is suffering from an illness no doctor can cure. Yet, the lives of these four people are about to become inexplicably intertwined, through death and imprisonment to passion and extraordinary self-sacrifice. The Swallows of Kabul is an astounding and elegiac novel of four people struggling to hold on to their humanity in a place where pleasure is a deadly sin and death has become routine.
This Perfect Day
‘Marvellously entertaining. A cross between Brave New World and Doctor Who.’ Look Magazine Considered one of the greatest dystopian thrillers ever written, Ira Levin’s terrifying glimpse into the future continues to fascinate readers forty years after its initial publication. Set in a seemingly perfect global society, where uniformity is the defining feature, one man leads the resistance against UniComp – a central computer that has been programmed to keep every single human on the surface of the earth in check. All ethnic groups have been eugenically merged into a single race called ‘The Family’, and citizens are continually drugged so that they can never realise their potential as human beings, but will remain pliant and cooperative... With a vision as frightening as any in the history of the science fiction genre, This Perfect Day is one of Levin’s most haunting novels.
