Anil's Ghost

By ZZs

Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 2000. The time is our own time. The place is Sri Lanka, the island nation formerly known as Ceylon, off the southern tip of India, a country steeped in centuries of cultural achievement and tradition--and forced into the late twentieth century by the ravages of civil war and the consequences of a country divided against itself. Into this maelstrom steps a young woman, Anil Tissera, born in Sri Lanka, educated in England and America, a forensic anthropologist sent by an international human rights group to work with local officials to discover the source of the organized campaigns of murder engulfing the island. Bodies are discovered. Skeletons. And particularly one, nicknamed 'Sailor.' What follows is a story about love, about family, about identity, about the unknown enemy, about the quest to unlock the hidden past--all propelled by a riveting mystery. Donor inscription in ffep, else near fine. Reprint. Hardcover. Very Good/Fine.

Writers in transition : the proceedings of the First National Conference of Italian-Canadian Writers

By Minni, S Dino & Ciampolini, Anna Foschi

Toronto: Guernica Editions, 1990. In November 1985, several writers, including Joseph Pivato, Antonio D'Alfonso, Pasquale Verdicchio and Dino Minni thought a national conference to take stock and discuss future directions might be a good idea. The Italian Cultural Centre graciously offered its premises, the Italian Cultural Institute agreed to help, and an ad hoc Literary Committee quickly came together. The Committee decided to interpret the word writer in the widest possible way to include novelists, poets, playwrights, historians, film makers and critics. It also decided that the emphasis of the Vancouver gathering would be on literature. This collection of the proceedings contains most of the scholarly papers delivered, plus a sampling of round-table seminar presentations, in the three languages of the conference. The editors have arranged them under common topics: the ethnic viewpoint, literary criticism, poetry. As these proceedings show, the 23 writers (including two guests from Italy) who participated in the conference agree that (1) Italian-Canadian writing is more than immigrant literature, (2) Italian-Canadian writing is about to enter its second stage of development, (3) Italian-Canadian writing is expanding the tradition of Survival to include the tradition of the Journey, (4) literary criticism of Italian-Canadian writing should take more than a thematic approach, and (5) the options for tomorrow are varied.. Conference held at Vancouver, September 15-19 1986 Includes articles translated from French and Italian. 236p.. 1st Can Ed. Softcover. New.
