Summary: When Rebecca Lester was eleven years old—and again when she was eighteen—she almost died from anorexia nervosa. Now both a tenured professor in anthropology and a licensed social worker, she turns her ethnographic and clinical gaze to the world of eating disorders—their history, diagnosis, lived realities, treatment, and place in the American cultural imagination. Famished, the culmination of over two decades of anthropological and clinical work, as well as a lifetime of lived experience, presents a profound rethinking of eating disorders and how to treat them. Through a mix of rich cultural analysis, detailed therapeutic accounts, and raw autobiographical reflections, Famished helps make sense of why people develop eating disorders, what the process of recovery is like, and why treatments so often fail. It’s also an unsparing condemnation of the tension between profit and care in American healthcare, demonstrating how a system set up to treat a disease may, in fact, perpetuate it. Fierce and vulnerable, critical and hopeful, Famished will forever change the way you understand eating disorders and the people who suffer with them.

Summary: Eaten Alive??? Earl Mason was your average small town pharmacist whose hidden sideline was manufacturing Methamphetamine for the largest drug dealer in southwest Missouri. In a failed attempt to improve his meth recipe and give these emaciated drug addicts a case of the munchies, he adds a powerful hunger enzyme that alters and damages their brain. It creates uncontrollable aggression and hunger which is focused solely on their species. They want human flesh! In effect, he creates a mindless cannibal that is stronger, faster, and impervious to pain. As the problem manifests, read how each drastically different town, with varying law enforcement resources attempts to deal with, and contain the problem. What would you do if 911 was busy? Written as a novel, the premise has turned out to be prophetic as evidenced in recent news headlines. They blame “bath salts.” However, one of the main ingredients is methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV.) The key is the first four letters.....Meth. This drug when mixed with a number of other chemicals can produce unimaginable effects on the hypothalamus part of the brain. Ever wonder why an anti-depressant can have the contradictory side effect of suicide? Simply because dousing the hypothalamus with chemicals can be unpredictable, and a known fact in the pharmaceutical and medical communities. So the human behavior I describe has already occurred when a man ate another man’s face in Miami, then cannibalism in Canada, then Louisiana. So who is next? Did you ever wonder what could be more horrifying then a zombie? Reality!

Summary: The Famished Gods: Speaking Selves in Akkarmashi is a critical reception of the Indian Dalit classical autobiography of Sharankumar Limbale, Akkarmashi, The Outcaste (2003). This book microscopically scrutinizes aspects of penury and destitution for which 'stomach' becomes the metaphor. While centrally focusing on the themes of 'food' and 'hunger', it also undertakes discussions on resistance, identities, atrocities and the like.
“. . .This book is a must read for anyone who cares for the liberation and empowerment of dalits.”
- Bama, a Renowned Dalit Novelist
“This is a powerful, and at times heart wrenching book. Essential reading for all connected with the emancipation of Dalits.
- Robert Maddox-Harle, Writer & Reviewer, Australia
“The Famished God' is a successful academic endeavour in analyzing the roots of social, cultural, economic and political dialectics in India through its deliberations on hunger in Akkarmashi. . .” - Ajay Navaria, an Eminent Academician & Scholar

Summary: Some twenty years after the publication of Ben Okri’s 1991 Booker Prize winning novel, The Famished Road, this volume proposes a spiralling journey into the imaginary homelands of its main protagonist, the adventurous spirit-child Azaro. Over the years, The Famished Road has been attributed a variety of mixed and sometimes contradictory labels (postcolonial, magic realist, mythopoeic, new ageist, picaresque, epic, to name just a few). Contributors to this volume have chosen to look beyond pre-conceived patterns and categories in order to embrace the otherness of the text and accept to be challenged by it. Disentangling themselves from the rationality of Western discourses, they have opened their minds to unfamiliar ground and new modes of being and seeing the world, which entailed bringing together various structures of feeling, modes of knowledge and protocols of representation, both African and Western. The purpose of this volume is therefore to offer new ways of reading The Famished Road that testify to the richness of Okri’s poetic prose and his reliance on indigenous mythical and oral traditions. The volume also includes an exclusive interview with Ben Okri who provides an insight into his writing processes and discusses the main themes, narrative techniques and literary strategies at work in The Famished Road.

Summary: Could you find your way without so much as a trail of breadcrumbs? A tragic 1925 accident plunges nine-year-old Edna Modene into the role of orphan. Famished Heart is the moving story of her journey to find her place in the world after shattering tragedies. Abandoned by a callous step-mother, she must find a way to piece herself together like her cherished patchwork quilt, into a whole person, capable of surviving and finding love and acceptance.

She must come to grips with an ugly, personal truth, and discover the truth about love, beauty, and prejudice. Running the emotional gamut from poignant, sad, funny and courageous, her story is liberally sprinkled with endearing characters, homespun wisdom, and treasured family recipes. Glimpses into the world of quilting, crafting and gardening richly texture this real life story of her painful passage into womanhood.

Summary: Life in the literary club has settled into a predictable - if unusual - routine. Junior member Konoha Inoue dutifully writes short stories for his club president, Tohko Amano, who subsequently shreds them and devours each morsel like the book-eating goblin she is. When the club begins receiving cryptic messages, though, routine goes out the window as Tohko sets out to find the culprit with Konoha in tow! When their investigation suggests that a tormented spirit might be stalking the school halls, matters quickly take an ominous turn. Is it possible that ghosts really exist, or is there something even more disturbing at play? But if there is room in the world for a literature-consuming goblin, then, really, how unlikely is a famished spirit?

Summary: In this much anticipated follow-up to The Sojourn, Alan Cumyn continues the story of Ramsay Crome, an artist who never quite came home from the First World War. The horrors of his years in a German prisoner of war camp continue to haunt him, as does the idealized memory of his long-lost sweetheart, his beautiful Margaret. It is those memories that literally save his life and keep him from a cold grave in a foreign land. Upon his return home to Montreal, Crome seeks the nourishment of body and soul, sometimes impulsively, after years of torture and deprivation. He meets Lillian, a farm girl from the Eastern Townships and is drawn to her youthful vigour, her innocence, and yes, her beauty. These prove to be a potent elixir and they marry quickly. By the time she is pregnant with their son, she wants nothing more than to escape the dreary poverty of their Depression-era existence and flee back to the farm with her husband and child. She wants him to love only her, to open up about his war experiences, explain the paintings she found of a nude Margaret. To her they are obscenities and provoke the bitter taste of jealousy. The Famished Lover is Alan Cumyn's most mature and accomplished novel to date. It explores one man's hunger for love and meaning in a harsh, unforgiving world and the beautiful, yet corrosive, nature of longing.

Summary: Winner of the Man Booker Prize: “Okri shares with García Márquez a vision of the world as one of infinite possibility. . . . A masterpiece” (The Boston Sunday Globe). Azaro is a spirit child, an abiku, existing, according to the African tradition, between life and death. Born into the human world, he must experience its joys and tragedies. His spirit companions come to him often, hounding him to leave his mortal world and join them in their idyllic one. Azaro foresees a trying life ahead, but he is born smiling. This is his story. When President Bill Clinton first went to Africa he quoted from The Famished Road, which has inspired literature, art, politics, and pop songs—and even been referenced in an episode of The Simpsons. A transformative story for all ages and all times, it means many things to many people. Few contemporary novels have aroused as much passion as this one. Indeed, twenty-five years after its breakout publication, the iconic story of Azaro’s travels continues to mesmerize new generations. For readers of Things Fall Apart or One Hundred Years of Solitude, this Man Booker Prize–winning blend of fabulism and gritty realism by the Nigerian author of Astonishing the Gods and Dangerous Love is a “dazzling, hypnotic” journey through Africa that “weaves the humblest detail with the most extravagant flight of fancy to create an astonishing fictional tapestry” (San Francisco Chronicle). Already considered a classic of world literature, it is “a masterpiece if ever one existed” (The Boston Sunday Globe).

Summary: About the Book Fewer and fewer religious leaders preach love for the disadvantaged, the sick, the poor, or those who are different. Instead, many of them sell their promises of salvation to the highest bidders. Worse they preach wealth, good health, and good luck as God's demonstration of favor. In fact, if you listen carefully, you may have come to believe that God Himself endears wealth and easy living. More and more leaders are blatantly dishonest, hypocritical, and corrupt. Haters carry their signs swearing that they know what Christ wants and yet do nothing Christian. Is it true that His message of faith, hope, and charity is a fraud for suckers? The power of wealth is so crushing and defeating, that you may think God has deserted the victims, and cares only for those hungry for power and decadent wealth. That is because the rationalization behind greed makes it a hard temptation to control. Like an addictive drug, its domination over people's decisions grows as more and more riches and personal power accumulates. Greed is not the only deadly sin of our protagonist. In this novel, a man born into super wealth is not only insatiable, but his excessive self-indulgence leads him into an unprecedented life of crime. To his utter disbelief, he is completely unaware that his ravenous appetite for seeking pleasure and decadence leads to sins that are permanently recorded on his soul. Only when he is rejected by God and sentenced to live in a piece of wood, that is, an existence of painful contemplation, does he become aware of his errors. The worst of human behavior is contrasted by characters who follow God's acts of supreme blessedness known as The Beatitudes. They are people who practice faith, hope and charity. Their lives demonstrate typical human existence as they labor over mundane decisions just to survive. They struggle with adversity, fear, and hardship. These individuals are also unaware that their good works and labors of peace are permanently recorded.
