"An utterly stunning novel of love, loss, the insidious nature of secrets, and the enduring power of words. I Saw a Man fulfills the promise of Owen Sheers's acclaimed novel, Resistance. While on assignment in Pakistan, Caroline Turner is killed in a drone strike. Her grief-stricken husband, Michael, leaves their cottage in Wales and returns to London to try to build a new life. He quickly develops a close friendship with his neighbors, Josh and Samantha Nelson and their two young daughters. Michael's friendship with the Nelsons marks the beginning of a long healing process, which is interrupted when Michael receives a letter from the soldier responsible for Caroline's death. After much soul-searching, the truth is the path the solider has chosen so he can begin to rebuild his life. The letter stirs up complex emotions that overwhelm Michael and cloud his judgment. Shortly thereafter, a terrible accident involving one of Josh and Samantha's daughters brings more grief and the burden of a shattering secret into Michael's life. When Josh learns the truth about what happened on that fateful day, Michael knows he must leave London. He moves to New York, where he leads the empty existence of a haunted man. What path to redemption will Michael choose? The answer is eloquent, resonant, and completely unforgettable"--
The dust diaries : seeking the African legacy of Arthur Cripps by Owen Sheers( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Dutch and held by 312 libraries worldwide
"Cripps left his native England in a ship set for Southern Rhodesia in 1900. During his time as a missionary in the British colony, he became passionate about indigenous ways, leaving him ostracized from the conservative European minority. Railing against colonial injustice, Cripps became a hero to the native population. He eventually chose a self-imposed exile from the Angelican Church, factions of which branded him a heretic and burned down the churches he had built. All the while he hid the soul-racking secret of what had driven him from England into the heart of Africa."
A poet's guide to Britain ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 180 libraries worldwide
Introduced and selected by the poet-presenter Owen Sheers, A Poet's Guide to Britain is a major poetry anthology that ties in with the BBC series of the same name. Owen Sheers passionately believes that poems, and particularly poems of place, not only affect us as individuals, but can have the power to mark and define a collective experience - our identities, our country, our land. He has chosen six powerful poems, all personal favourites, and all poems that have become part of the way we see our landscape. The anthology follows a similar format to the BBC series itself, while also offering paper chains of poems about the landscape and nature of Britain, transcripts of contemporary poet interviews, and a short introduction to each lead poem
