Description:
In the dead of winter, a stranger arrives in the Irish town of Cloonoila. Charismatic and worldly, Dr Vlad is a self-proclaimed poet and healer, and a welcome disruption to the monotony of village life. Before long, Fidelma McBride falls under his spell and, defying the shackles of wedlock and convention, turns to him to cure her deepest pains. Then, one morning the illusion is abruptly shattered. Dr Vlad is arrested and revealed to be a notorious war criminal and mass murderer. The community is devastated,and no one more than Fidelma. In disgrace and utterly alone, she embarks on a journey that will bring both profound hardship and, ultimately, the prospect of redemption. Moving from Ireland to London to The Hague, this novel is a vivid exploration of humanity's capacity for evil as well as the bravest kind of love.

Description:
Seven kids. One dead husband called 'Redser.' And not a chance that she'll be defeated. Not by Sister Magdalen, her daughter's tyrannical teacher. Not by the amorous overtures of the French proprietor of the local pizza parlour. Not by the medical crisis that threatens her best pal, Marion. Every morning at five, Agnes Browne leaves her tenement flat and sets up her produce stall on Moore Street, in the teeming heart of The Jarro - home to Dublin's dealers, dockers, draymen, and those on the dole. But to the fatherless Browne brood, Agnes is more than a beloved neighborhood character. She's just about everything there is...

Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: Are we what we eat? What does food reveal about how we live and how we think of ourselves in relation to others? Why do people have a strong attachment to their own cuisine and an aversion to the foodways of others? In this engaging account of the crucial significance rice has for the Japanese, this examines how people use the metaphor of a principal food in conceptualizing themselves in relation to other people. The author traces the changing contours that the Japanese notion of the self that's taken as different historical Others - whether Chinese or Westerners - have emerged, and show how rice and rice paddies have served as the vehicle for this deliberation. Using Japan as an example, she proposes a new cross-cultural model for the interpretation of the self and other.184 pages, notes, references, index.
