Gods without men by Hari Kunzru( Book )

44 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jaz and Lisa Matharu are plunged into a surreal public hell after their son, Raj, vanishes during a family vacation in the California desert. However, the Mojave is a place of strange power, and before Raj reappears inexplicably unharmed--but not unchanged--the fate of this young family will intersect with that of many others, echoing the stories of all those who have traveled before them. Driven by the energy and cunning of Coyote, the mythic, shape-shifting trickster, Gods Without Men is full of big ideas, but centered on flesh-and-blood characters who converge at an odd, remote town in the shadow of a rock formation called the Pinnacles. Viscerally gripping and intellectually engaging, it is, above all, a heartfelt exploration of the search for pattern and meaning in a chaotic universe

Human problems by Francis Upritchard( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francis Upritchard (1976 New Zealand) lives and works in London These are the fragments Francis Upritchard has shored against her ruins. Thrift store pots have been remade as canopic urns, ancient Egyptian repositories for the organs of the dead. A gift from a relative, an unwanted wedding present or a memory of a day out, even the tackiest ornament once played a small symbolic function in someone's life. Now they have been detourned to reveal the underlying purpose of all that frantic personalising and decorating of domestic space, the fabrication of memories to set against death. We face the terror of annihilation armed only with nick-nacks, handicrafts and souvenirs. Novelist Hari Kunzru (The Impressionist, Transmission) has contributed an introductory text masquerading as the notebook of one John Henry Deans, a would-be anthropologist who is slowly losing his mind
