1. The Memory of Salt (Large Print 16pt) - Alice Melike Ulgezer

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Ali's father is a Turkish circus musician performing in Kabul when Ali's mother, a young pediatrician from Melbourne, meets him in a bar. He plays the trumpet, the saz, the flute, hears voices that urge him to violence, sees angels in the skies and djinns in the street, inscribes prayers and invocations on the walls of his room, and across the suburb. Ulgezer offers a remarkable portrait of this crazed visionary, a madman and a mystic, intoxicated with hashish and Sufism, who wrecks the family, but is also an enchanted being. Ali's mother has grown up on Australia's outback frontiers - their courtship takes them from Afghanistan across Iran to Turkey and then to London where Ali is born. The novel is Ali's coming to terms with this meeting of two cultures that are at once so similar and so separate.

3. The Stones of Home What Cost FreedomE - Rowan Oliver Ward Utting

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 11.45  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Stones of Home is a bardic tale of magic and dragons, of love and pain, of epic battles and loss; and touches the very heart of what it is to be human. After a century and a half of isolation, the surviving Mages of Haven reunite to combat a rising power. Their journey and fight for freedom lead them through many skirmishes and adventures, to confront an old rivalry between their allies, whom they must unite to defeat their common enemy. Rowan Utting's work is poetic, narrative, mythic, reflective and musical. Along with the language, 'Alamard', The Stones of Home contains the author's graphic working notes, embedded songs, music, lexicon and grammar. This stunning advanced literary work was completed when Rowan Utting had just turned sixteen. More books are under way. Not a novel about youth: it explores the lives and emotions of people with magical powers, their place in different societies and the constant war waged by other creatures. The Stones of Home is epic in scope and set in contemporary Scotland and Ireland. It is literary, humorous, poignant, violent, philosophical and memorable. 255pp. A library "must have." Suitability 12+ (contains some violence).
