Pig's foot : a novel by Carlos Acosta( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oscar Mandinga, great-grandchild of the founders of a small hamlet of wooden shacks and red earth deep in the Cuban hinterland, is a sardonic teller of tales - some taller than others - of slavery, revolution, family secrets, love and identity, spanning four generations. One day Oscar Mandinga wakes to find himself utterly alone in the world. As the sole descendant of his family line he is not sure what to do or where he should go, but in the midst of this uncertainty, he holds fast to what his grandfather always told him: 'No man knows who he is until he knows his past, the history of his country.' As Oscar sets out to find his ancestral village of Pata de Puerco and the meaning of the magical pig's-foot amulet he has inherited, the search for his country's hidden history becomes entangled with his search for the truth about himself. Ambitious in scope, yet intimate in tone, rippling with vitality and driven by passion, full of dark comedy, magical history and startling revelations, Pig's Foot is a dazzling evocation of Cuba's tumultuous history. It is a spellbinding accomplishment
Elite syncopations ; The Judas tree ; Concerto by Ross MacGibbon( Visual )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kenneth MacMillan's ... three very different ballets. The colourful, humorous Elite Syncopations, set to the easy-going rhythms of ragtime, is in start contrast to The Judas Tree, which depicts the horrific fate of a woman at the hands of 13 men -- a contemporary theme with biblical associations. Concerto, to Shostakovich's Pian Concerto No. 2, is an abstract work of beauty, exuberance and reflection"--Container
