The radiance of ashes by Cyrus Mistry( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jingo is something of a drifter who lives on money from his parents, parttime employment as a market researcher, and fantasies of being a writer. After a moment of rash bravery, he finds himself forced to lie low for a while. Hiding out in the underbelly of the city slums, Jingo recalls his cosseted childhood as the apple of his mother's eye and - sometimes - the bane of his father's existence, and his long-standing and destructive relationship with Cris, a middle-class East Indian girl, and the woman he once thought the love of his life. But as past and present collide, Jingo is forced to consider his life so far, and realises he must decide what he wants before it is too late

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author's first collection of short stories is dark, mysterious and inhabited by characters that walk a thin line between fantasy and reality. A serendipitous discovery on the floor of a local bus transforms the melancholic life of Percy, who meets a ghost in the washroom of a public library; a new mother struggling with depression and the urge to end her newborn's life opens the door to a stranger; stalked by mysterious men, Jacintha believes her enemies are out to eliminate her because she knows too much; on New Year's Eve, an aged couple clashes, replaying an annual ritual that shrouds the unacknowledged secret between them twenty-three years ago; two childhood friends, now co-workers at an avertising agency, indulge in a never-ending display of one-upmanship, false camaraderie and intense, unspoken resentment; Bokha tries to counter the powerful black magic of his wicked old mother in order to shield his helpless lover; and Mahendroo, full of himself, is consumed by his obsessive search for an elusive species of Passiflora

Something close to hell : surviving serious burn injuries by Paul Roberts( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compassionate film succeeds in presenting a very difficult subject in an informative and compelling way. The pain of severe burn is said to be greater than that of any other injury. In Something Close to Hell, burn survivors speak about their particular ordeal and the slow road to recovery. Beyond the physical trauma, there are also psychological consequences. Burn survivors feel a sense of grief, mourning the loss of the person they once were. In addition to anger and depression, there is the fear of public reaction to their disfigurement. Serious crises can occur months, even years, after discharge from the hospital. Among those we meet are Neil Cowley whose promising football career ended when he was badly burnt in a trailer fire. His diary narrates the recovery process with its psychological stresses. Thirteen-year-old Ashley Manning and his friend Danny attend a support group to help them deal with their injuries resulting from playing with fire. This film also shows the surgical procedures associated with skin grafting and gives voice to hospital personnel involved in the recovery process
