Human Stain an unknown treasure in rajasthan the bundi wall paintings
It is 1998, the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president, and in a small New England town an ageing classics professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist. The charge is a lie, but the real truth about Silk would astonish even his most virulent accuser. Coleman Silk has a secret, one which has been kept for fifty years from his wife, his four children, his colleagues, and his friends, including the writer Nathan Zuckerman. It is Zuckerman who stumbles upon Silk's secret and sets out to reconstruct the unknown biography of this eminent, upright man, esteemed as an educator for nearly all his life, and to understand how this ingeniously contrived life came unravelled. And to understand also ho Silk's astonishing private history is, in the words of the Wall Street Journa "magnificently" interwoven with "the larger public history of modern America".

Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother an unknown treasure in rajasthan the bundi wall paintings
Ten chapters, ten women and many stories of heartbreak, including her own: Xinran once again takes us right into the lives of Chinese women and their lost daughters. Whether as a consequence of the single-child policy, destructive age-old traditions or hideous economic necessity, these women had to give up their daughters for adoption, others were forced to abandon them - on city streets, outside hospitals, orphanages or on station platforms - and others even had to watch their baby daughters being taken away at birth, and drowned. Personal, immediate, full of sorrow but also full of hope, this books sends a heart-rending message to Chinese girls who have been adopted to show them how things really were for their mothers, and to tell them they were loved and will never be forgotten.

Where's the Starfish? an unknown treasure in rajasthan the bundi wall paintings
Barroux tackles ocean pollution in the stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Where's the Elephant? - recommended by The Guardian, Sunday Times and The Sun. Find the whale, the clownfish and the starfish on every page - until the piles of rubbish start to make it much too difficult. Both a Where's Wally-style spotting game and a striking work of art, this almost wordless tale puts the power back in the hands (or fins) of the natural world, with a boldly beautiful twist ending. With an insight and warmth comparable to Frann Preston-Gannon's The Journey Home, Barroux has created an astoundingly powerful modern classic that promises to be remembered for generations to come. The perfect way to introduce the topic of the environment to children. Barroux's books include Uncle John and the Giant Cherry Tree, which won him the 2005 Enfantaisie Award, and the extraordinary Line of Fire, Diary of An Unknown Soldier which has received widespread critical acclaim. In 2015 Barroux won the first Parents, Babies, a Book competition for his work Chuut! which will be given to every newborn baby in the north of France. His book Where's the Elephant? has been longlisted for the Kate Greenway Medal 2016.

Tristram Shandy an unknown treasure in rajasthan the bundi wall paintings
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman took fiction into unknown realms, combining an entirely new concept in form with an idiosyncratic type of sentimental comedy. The publication of the first two of nine volumes brought the clergyman, Laurence Sterne, instant celebrity, but the novel's exuberant mixture of bawdry and virtuous feeling also provided considerable moral outrage, which the author relished. An amorphous mass of inconsequential incidents, musings, reminiscences and countless hilarious digressions into side issues of the vaguest tangential relevance, make up this engaging anti-novel which has no beginning, middle or end, and is dominated by the author's vibrant personality which commands the reader's active participation.
