Home-care nurse Emily Klein finds herself facing a difficult decision after she is assigned to make weekly prenatal visits to Pippa Glenning, an Isis cult member under house arrest for the death of her daughter during a Solstice ceremony.
Timothy is on probation. It's a strange word—something that happens to other kids, to delinquents, not to kids like him. And yet, he is under house arrest for the next year. He must check in weekly with a probation officer and a therapist, and keep a journal for an entire year. And mostly, he has to stay out of trouble. But when he must take drastic measures to help his struggling family, staying out of trouble proves more difficult than Timothy ever thought it would be. By turns touching and funny, and always original, House Arrest is a middlegrade novel in verse about one boy's path to redemption as he navigates life with a sick brother, a grieving mother, and one tough probation officer.
In superbly crafted prose, Mary Morris captures the drama—and danger—in the everyday and on the road. In her novels, short stories, and travel memoirs, including the acclaimed Nothing to Declare, Morris has dazzled us with her command of location—rendering the unfamiliar places that are not home, the shadowy terrain of memory and love. Returning to the Latin America she knows so well, Morris tells the gripping tale of two women from different cultures whose lives intersect at a point that promises freedom to one and disaster to the other. Maggie Conover, a travel writer on assignment in the Caribbean island nation known as la isla, is being held in detention, restricted to her hotel. The authorities are interested in her friendship with Isabel Calderón, the fiery daughter of the island’s revolutionary leader. Maggie met Isabel on a previous visit and was struck by her independence, her disgust for her father, and her intense longing to escape. Now Isabel has disappeared, and Maggie is suspected of knowing her whereabouts. As Maggie is interrogated, bullied, and brought to a fever pitch of anxiety, she recalls Isabel’s courage, her own troubled past, and her conflicted feelings for her husband and father. Maggie’s struggle with her fear of confinement and need for flight brings the novel to a climax of rich psychological complexity. Mary Morris captures the terror at the heart of this ordeal with the same subtlety that she uses to probe the complicate relationship between Maggie and Isabel. Suspenseful, yet finely textured, House Arrest is a tour de force of political and personal intrigue.
THE STORY: HOUSE ARREST is a fascinating and compelling look at nothing less than the civil rights movement, the issues of slavery and racism, and the relationship between the press and the presidency over the course of American history. It begins
The characters in these eleven stories range from a political activist, in the apartheid years, released from a South African jail into a seemingly uncaring world, to a child of immigrant parents living between two cultures; from the daughter of a tribal chief who returns from the city to her arid homeland in the heart of Africa, to the tragic love of a Rabbi and his wife in an East European shelter; from a dingo pursued to its inevitable end by the people of a small Australian town, to a South African farmer who allows his land to revert to its natural state. In her struggle to arrive at the truth of a situation, Rose Zwi's stories are leavened with humour and humanity. In the story which gives the name to this collection 'To Speak the Truth, Laughing', a politically inexperienced white woman joins an illegal march into a black township to protest against the arrest of black schoolchildren who have rebelled against the system. In another story, 'Conquest of America', a writer arrives in New York in search of a literary agent. Her present agent has axed her. "You must know lots of people in New York," he says as he bundles her into a taxi with her dog-eared manuscripts. "Not a soul," she replies. "Lovely," he says in a distracted manner. "Let's have coffee sometime." International award-winning author Rose Zwi has penned a joyous collection of stories bringing together Australian and South African lives.
