Item Description: Candlewick Press (MA), United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 194 x 164 mm. Brand New Book. What does it mean to be free? Top authors donate their talents to explore the question in a compelling collection to benefit Amnesty International. A boy who thinks that school is slavery learns the true meaning of the word when he stumbles on a secret child-labor factory. A Palestinian boy, mute from trauma, releases kites over a wall to a hilltop settlement, each bearing a message of peace. This inspiring, engaging anthology gathers an international roster of authors to explore such themes as asylum, law, education, and faith -- from a riveting tale of an attempt to find drinking water after Hurricane Katrina; to a chilling look at a future where microchips track every citizen s every move; to a hilarious police interrogation involving the London Tower, the Crown Jewels, and a Ghanaian boy with a passion for playing marbles. Features an introduction by British writer Jacqueline Wilson. With stories by: David Almond Ibtisam Barakat Malorie Blackman Theresa Breslin Eoin Colfer Roddy Doyle Ursula Dubosarsky Jamila Gavin Margaret Mahy Patricia McCormick Michael Morpurgo Sarah Mussi Meja Mwangi Rita Williams-Garcia.

Item Description: Harper Perennial, 1991. paperback. Book Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. New York. 1991. Harper Perennial. Reprinted Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 269 pages. paperback. 0060919639. Cover illustration by Cathleen Toelke. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. keywords: Literature Translated Colombia Latin America. inventory # 35503. FROM THE PUBLISHER - A dictator?s body is discovered in his Enormous, crumbling palace. Revolutionaries burst in and find his rotting corpse in an anarchic tangle of past and present - a present already lost and decayed, a past of almost unimaginable richness in which the palace was crowded with the dictator?s ministers, bodyguards and servants, who kept him precariously balanced in power, and also with a tribe of women and children. The atmosphere is dreamlike - even nightmarish - real, vibrant and sensually exact, and at the same time vague and almost unbelievable. From this very definite beginning the novel moves round and round in time - backward, forward and sideways in a narrative of reminiscence. The action takes place in a Latin American country in an advanced state of corruption, anarchy, savagery, and physical exuberance. The time is the modern period, though not specified. An air force is mentioned; a League of Nations exists somewhere; American ambassadors with names like Wilson move in and out and occasionally the Pope sends messages. Dominating the action is the dictator-general, at first an almost messianic presence loved by the people, appearing suddenly among the peasants like a vision, walking alone or with a few colleagues, but as a rule going unguarded and unafraid. Then, as his rule tightens, as things become harsher, be becomes more suspicious and frightened and goes out only in a closely guarded car and with a bodyguard; or else he appears on a balcony, a distant, scarcely human figure. The discovery of a man who is his double makes appearances much easier for him; the double is dressed as people expect the leader to dress, and is sent to appear where the leader is expected. When there is an assassination, it is the double, not the leader, who is killed. This is an extraordinary novel by one of the world?s leading writers. Rich, vivid and brilliantly original, THE AUTUMN OF THE PATRIARCH is a masterful work of imagination, narrative and description superbly translated by Gregory Rabassa. GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ was born in Aracataca, Colombia, in 1928. He attended the University of Bogota and later worked as a reporter for the Colombian newspaper El Espectador and as a foreign correspondent in Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Caracas, and New York. He is the author of many novels and collections of stories-including NO ONE WRITES TO THE COLONEL AND OTHER STORIES, THE AUTUMN OF THE PATRIARCH, INNOCENT ERËNDIRA AND OTHER STORIES, IN EVIL HOUR, LEAF STORM AND OTHER STORIES, CHRONICLE OF A DEATH FORETOLD, LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA, and ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. Garcia Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982. Bookseller Inventory # 35503
