The ghetto in which the Jews have been confined is being liquidated by the Nazis, and eleven-year-old Hugo is brought by his mother to the local brothel, where one of the prostitutes has agreed to hide him. Mariana is a bitterly unhappy woman who hates what she has done with her life, and night after night Hugo sits in her closet and listens uncomprehendingly as she rages at the Nazi soldiers who come and go. But when she's not mired in self-loathing, Mariana is fiercely protective of the bewildered, painfully polite young boy. And Hugo, in turn, becomes protective of Mariana, trying to make her laugh when she is depressed, and soothing her physical and mental agony with cold compresses. As memories of his family and friends grow dim, Hugo falls in love with Mariana. And as her life spirals downward, Mariana reaches out for consolation to the adoring boy. The arrival of the Russian army sends the prostitutes fleeing, but Mariana is tracked down and arrested as a Nazi collaborator for having slept with the Germans. As the novel moves toward its heartrending conclusion, Aharon Appelfeld once again crafts out of the depths of unfathomable tragedy a renewal of life and a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.

Pranav Kumar has had enough. He's sick and tired of being a corporate drone convincing people that their lives are meaningless without the newest product he's peddling. He hates that commercialism is the new mantra and people actually believe that you are what you own. Pranav Kumar wants to change the world. But how does one man make a whole country question the way we are when no one is interested in listening? Pranav and his friends decide to capture the eyeballs of the nation and shake up the system. Their methods are unorthodox, their message unique. They take over a TV station, expose an environmental scam, strike out at patrons of brothels, sabotage a glitzy fashion show, and paint-bomb a local train. But as the Anarchists of Mumbai ignite sparks of a much larger movement, they realize that doing good comes at a price, that the means are as important as the ends and that being hunted by the Mumbai police is perhaps better than being hunted by contract-killers. Bold, fresh and darkly comic, The Diary of an Unreasonable Man is an exceptional debut.

From its humble beginnings in 1970 as a free concert for a few hundred locals, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has grown into one of the world's largest music gatherings, each spring drawing hundreds of thousands from all over the world. Jazzfest, as it's known locally, has both stimulated and reflected out-of-state interest in Louisiana music. It was once a rarity for Cajun, zydeco and second-line R&B acts to ever leave the state; now dozens of them make the circuit of baby-boomer, roots-music dance clubs. Most of that exponential growth has occurred in the last 10 years, and Rounder Records, which made a major commitment to Louisiana music in the mid-'80s, has reaped the benefit of the scene's growing popularity. Here the Boston indie label celebrates its own prescience with a two-CD anthology. Despite the title, most of the tracks were recorded within the last 10 years, but they cover a lot of ground--from the old-fashioned brothel piano of Tuts Washington to the funky brass arrangements of the Rebirth Brass Band, from the ancient Cajun song styles of David Doucet to the hip-hop-influenced zydeco of L'il Brian and the Zydeco Travelers. The first CD or "City Disc" focuses on 14 New Orleans artists, ranging from such late piano masters as Champion Jack Dupree and James Booker to such smooth soul crooners as Dalton Reed and Chuck Carbo. The second CD or "Country Disc" presents 18 Cajun and zydeco acts from French Louisiana, including such well known names as D.L. Menard and Buckwheat Zydeco as well as such emerging talents as Geno Delafose and Bruce Daigrepont. Holding the set together is the slippery sense of syncopation most Louisianans seem to be born with. Whether that pelvic pulse is dictated by fiddle or tuba, button accordion or upright piano, the infectious rhythms could only have come from that particular stretch of the Gulf Coast.--Geoffrey Himes
Advantages: Good food and service Disadvantages: Not in centre of town
...Sonny's Locale, Whickham Restaurant
We like to go out every Friday for something to eat and because we have Little Miss and grandson, tend to go somewhere local. We had never tried this restaurant before so decided to give it a go. The proprietors had already been running a restaurant in Tynemouth for 8 years when they branched out into Whickham.
The restaurant is situated on the Front...
Advantages: Captures local community and balances it with light comedy; setting; acting; direction Disadvantages: Nothing in particular, although it did drag in a couple of places
...Local Hero is an intriguing drama that explores corporate takeover and how people think that money is of the utmost importance. It also looks at the differences between big money business and a small community mentality where money doesn't actually matter - it's quality of life that's important. What we also get here is a large dollop of humour, as an American corporate representative comes over...
Advantages: Short, sharp and an old fashioned chilling horror! Disadvantages: The acting is not terrific
...?They?re dying to meet you?
The Locals is a low budget horror flick from New Zealand, home of many a top quality film like?? um well like I guess the early films of Peter Jackson! New Zealand isn?t well known for its film making production after all. The Locals though is a throwback to the older days of horror, the days of early videos when many a low on effects, high on story film was...
