A High Wind In Jamaica

By Richard Hughes

Frogmore, St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England: Chatto, Bodley Head & Jonathan Cape and Granada / Triad Panther. April 15, 1976. 1979 reprint. Mass Market Paperback. Good. Ex-library. Nice reading copy. 173 pages. After a hurricane levels their Jamaican estate, the Bas-Thorntons decide to send their children back to the safety and comfort of England. On the way they are aptured by pirates. Jonsen, the well-meaning pirate captain, doesn't know how to dispose of his new cargo, while the children adjust with surprising ease to their new life. As this strange company sails around the Caribbean, events turn more frightening and the pirates find themselves increasingly incriminated by the children's fates. The most shocking betrayal, however, will take place only after the return to civilization. The swift, almost hallucinatory action, together with its provocative insight into the psychology of children, made it a best seller when it was first published in 1929 and has since established it as a classic exploration of the nature, and limits, of innocence.

Moonfleet (Penguin Popular Classics)

By John Meade Falkner

London: Penguin. January 26, 1995. Paperback. Penguin Popular Classics. As New. A mystery and an adventure story, a tale of smuggling set among the cliffs, caves, and downs of Dorset. What will be the outcome of the conflict between smugglers and revenue men? How can the hero, John Trenchard, discover the secret of Colonel John Mohune's treasure? As the book progresses these two interwoven themes resolve themselves into a third and richer one, with the friendship and suffering of both John Trenchard and the craggy, taciturn Elzevir Block. Falkner's feeling for history and for the landscape of his Dorset setting combine with his gift for storytelling to turn Moonfleet into a historical romance of moving intensity.

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress

By Dai Sijie

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 2001. Hardcover. 2001. First American Edition (stated). Fine book in a Fine jacket. Interior pristine. Not from a library. Not a remainder. Not clipped. At the height of Mao's infamous Cultural Revolution, two boys are among hundreds of thousands exiled to the countryside for "re-education." The narrator and his best friend, guilty of being the sons of doctors, find themselves in a remote village where, among the peasants of Phoenix mountain, they are made to cart buckets of excrement up and down precipitous winding paths. Their meager distractions include a violin-as well as, before long, the beautiful daughter of the local tailor. But it is when the two discover a hidden stash of Western classics in Chinese translation that their re-education takes its most surprising turn. While ingeniously concealing their forbidden treasure, the boys find transit to worlds they had thought lost forever. And after listening to their dangerously seductive retellings of Balzac, even the Little Seamstress will be forever transformed.
