Darling is only ten years old, and yet she must navigate a fragile and violent world.

1914 : goodbye to all that : writers on the conflict between life and art by Ali Smith( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A wide-ranging collection of reflective essays, to mark the centenary of the conflict that changed the world. In this collection of essays, ten leading writers from different countries consider the conflicts that have informed their own literary lives. 1914-Goodbye to All That borrows its title from Robert Graves's ""bitter leave-taking of England"" in which he writes not only of the First World War but the questions it raised: how to live, how to live with each other, and how to write. Interpreting this title as broadly and ambiguously as Graves intended, these essays ma

Necesitamos nombres nuevos by NoViolet Bulawayo( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La historia arranca en un barrio de chabolas llamado Paraíso, donde Darling, a sus diez años, se mueve junto a sus amigos con la frescura y la osadía propias de la edad. Ya sea robando guayabas en Budapest, el rico vecindario cercano, o imitando destellos de la cultura pop captados fugazmente en el televisor, la vida es un jego extraño y fascinante en el que los momentos de felicidad inocente se confunden con la crudeza del entorno. Sin embargo, sobre ellos se cierne la sombre de un "antes" tenebroso: antes de que la policía destruyera sus casas, antes de que cerrasen los colegios, antes de que sus padres se marcharan al extranjero a realizar los trabajos más denigrantes y peligrosos para sobrevivir. Al cabo de un tiempo, cuando por fin se cumple el mayor sueño de Darling, viajar a América para reunirse con su tía, lo que la aguarda en la periferia de Detroit no es precisamente la tan ansiada terra de promisión

For å være med i spillet om landene, må vi velge et land. Alle ønsker å være USA, Storbritannia, Canada, Australia og Sveits. Ingen vil være Kongo, Somalia, Irak, Sudan eller Haiti. Ingen vil engang være det landet vi bor i. Hvem vil bo i et land hvor folk sulter og alt er kaos? Darling og vennene bor på et sted som heter Paradise, men som er så langt fra et paradis du kan komme. Selv om det ikke er så aller verst. De finner på mye gøy, som å leke "finn Bin Laden", stjele frukt og synge Lady Gaga av full hals. De drømmer om reise til paradis, der Madonna, Barack Obama og David Beckham bor. For Darling vil drømmen gå i oppfyllelse. Men i likhet med mange andre som forsøker å skape et nytt liv langt hjemmefra, opplever Darling at det nye paradiset byr på mange utfordringer
