This is the story of Rahel and Estha, twins growing up among the banana vats and peppercorns of their blind grandmother's factory, and amid scenes of political turbulence in Kerala. Armed only with the innocence of youth, they fashion a childhood in the shade of the wreck that is their family: their lonely, lovely mother, their beloved Uncle Chacko (pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher) and their sworn enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun, incumbent grand-aunt).

  • A Promise Of Hope

    Some children inherit "the family nose." Autumn Stringam and her brother Joseph inherited the family bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that led to their mother's and grandfather's suicides. Autumn, at 22, was psychotic and in in a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch; Joseph, at 15, was prone to violent episodes so terrifying the family feared for their lives. But after they began taking a nutritional supplement developed by their father and based, incredibly, on a formula given to aggressive hogs--Autumn's and Joseph's symptoms disappeared. Today they both lead normal, productive lives.

    A Promise of Hope is the personal story of Autumn Stringam's flight from madness to wellness, all due to the vitamin and mineral supplement that works on the premise that some forms of mental illness are caused by nutritional deficiencies. An honest book that exposes the hidden torment of bipolar disorder, it is the story of a daughter seeking to forgive her mother. A Promise of Hope is also an astonishing scientific account that moves from a kitchen table in Alberta to the treatment offices of a distinguished Harvard pshyciatrist and into the labs of a skeptical medial establishment. It climaxes in a bitter--but eventually triumphant--battles with Health Canada, in which the tiny supplement company is exonerated and praised for saving the lives of thousands of Canadians previously thought lost to mental illness. More than anything, A Promise of Hope is a powerful story and a call for a new understanding of the causes of mental illness and its treatments.

    • 20% of Canadians will experience mental illness in their lifetimes
    • Over 300,000 Canadians are affected by bipolar disorder (or manic depression)
    • 15% of people with biploar disorder commit suicide
    • EMPower Plus, the supplement that worked for Autumn, is being used and studied around the world, reflecting the growing awareness of the role of micronutrients in normal brain function.

  • The Earth: An Intimate History

    The paperback of the Sunday Times bestseller that reveals how the earth became the shape it is today. This book will change the way you see the world - permanently. The face of the earth, criss-crossed by chains of mountains like the scars of old wounds, has changed constantly over billions of years. Its shape records a remote past of earthquakes, volcanos and continental drift, and the ongoing subtle shifts that bring our planet alive. Richard Fortey introduces us to the earth's distinct character, revealing the life that it leads when humans aren't watching. He follows the continual movement of seabeds, valleys, mountain ranges and ice caps and shows how everything - our culture, natural history, even the formation of our cities - has its roots in geology. In Richard Fortey's hands, geology becomes vital and exhilarating and unmistakably informs our lives in the most intimate way.

  • The Earth: An Intimate History

    'A dazzling achievement. Richard Fortey is without peer among science writers.' Bill Bryson 'The Earth is a true delight: full of awe-inspiring details... it blends travel, history, reportage and science to create an unforgettable picture of our ancient earth.' Sunday Times The face of the Earth, criss-crossed by chains of mountains like the scars of old wounds has changed constantly over billions of years, and the testament of the remote past is all around us. In this book, Richard Fortey teaches us how to read its character, laying out the dominions of the world before us. He shows how everything - human culture, natural history, even the shape of cities - roots back to a deeper geological truth. Far from being the driest of sciences, he proves that geology informs all our lives in the most intimate way. Nothing in this book seems to be at rest. The surface of the Earth dilates and collapses; seas and mountains rise and fall; continents move. We climb the Alps, wallow in Icelandic hot springs, dive down to the ocean floor; we explore the barren rocks of Newfoundland, walk through the lush ecosystems of Hawaii, cross the salt flats of Oman and saunter along the San Andreas Fault. And Fortey is the ideal guide, his descriptions of natural beauty as memorable as the best travel-writers, his prose as gripping as the best novelist, his crystal-clear scientific explanations fascinating and often surprising.

  • Lager Heads

    What’s beer all about? It’s certainly not about brewing. Canada’s two largest breweries continue to slug it out over products that, with a few exceptions, taste pretty much the same to the average Canadian beer-drinker. In fact, it was the average “Joe,” with his“I am Canadian” rant, who initiated the most recent skirmish in the decades-long battle for Canada’s beer drinking money. The nationalism palpable, the beer mostly invisible, “I am Canadian” became a brand-saving salvo in the re-launch of Canadian.

    Business writer Paul Brent examines the business of big beer in Canada, revealing the foibles and follies of a multi-million dollar industry. Beginning with a behind-the-headlines look at some of Canada’s most famous ad campaigns—one that may have some of this country’s marketing mavens squirming in their Calvins—Brent finds two giant companies virtually unchallenged across the country. Here is the history behind Canada’s all-powerful beer duopoly, including revealing portraits of the larger-than-life personalities who run the breweries, and a blow-by-blow account of their current operations. Brent investigates how Molson lost market share to Labatt in the 90s, and then won much of it back with the Canadian rant, as well as the breweries’ sometimes brilliant—and often disastrous—forays into rock music and sports ownership. He goes into the bar-room backrooms to provide some eye-opening facts about how the breweries manage to retain their hold on the market.

    Lager Heads is also a story of what makes us Canadian, how the big breweries have cannily hijacked our cultural touchstones to drive their own marketing efforts, and how beer itself has become a ubiquitous part of the Canadian cultural landscape.

    A wholly entertaining and provocative read, Lager Heads will have Canadians everywhere talking—over a beer.
