READING: 'The Sparrow is one of my favourite science fiction novels and it destroyed me in the best way when I read it. It is so beautifully written and the construction of the narrative is masterful.' Emma Newman, acclaimed author of Planetfall Set in the 21st century - a number of decades from now - The Sparrow is the story of a charismatic Jesuit priest and talented linguist, Emilio Sandoz, who - in response to a remarkable radio signal from the depths of space - leads a scientific mission to make first contact with an extraterrestrial culture. In the true tradition of Jesuit adventurers before him, Sandoz and his companions are prepared to endure isolation, suffering - even death - but nothing can prepare them for the civilisation they encounter. Or for the tragic misunderstanding that brings the mission to a devastating end. Once considered a living saint, Sandoz returns alone to Earth horrifically maimed, both physically and spiritually, the mission's sole survivor - only to be blamed for the mission's failure and accused of heinous crimes. Written in clean, effortless prose and peopled with memorable characters who never lose their humanity or humour, The Sparrow is a powerful, haunting fiction - a tragic but ultimately triumphant novel about the nature of faith, of love and what it means to be 'human' and widely considered to be a classic of the genre.

READING: Sometimes she wished she was an only child . . . "She's lovely! Look at those curls. Those blue eyes. She's just beautiful!" Berta was used to hearing comments like that. But they were not about her. . . . Whenever ladies came to the house or met her mother on the street, they exclaimed over Berta's little sister, Glenna. Somewhere along the way, Berta decided that whatever Glenna was, she would not be. Whatever Glenna did, she would not do. Whatever Glenna liked, she would not like. She would be the opposite. Sure enough, Glenna is sparkling, vivacious, outgoing, and adored, while Berta is serious, dependable, and prim. Their relationship grows more and more distant until, finally, Berta must look into her heart and discover what truly has caused the rift between them.

READING: One day, as I was walking in the forest, I sat down to rest. Looking around I saw a big spider spinning his web. When I looked around I saw many webs, but they all seemed to belong to this particular spider. The days were getting cooler and the spider wanted to catch as many bugs before the winter snows. High above the spider’s web, a little sparrow was flying home to his nest, when a big hawk swooped down on him. Surprised by this sudden attack, the little sparrow fought for his life. When the hawk’s claws lifted him high in the air, he turned and struck the hawk with his sharp little beak. Momentarily stunned, the hawk dropped the sparrow who fell and disappeared amongst the trees in the forest.

READING: Shinkichi Takahashi is one of the truly great figures in world poetry. In the classic Zen tradition of economy, disciplined attention, and subtlety, Takahashi lucidly captures that which is contemporary in its problems and experiences, yet classic in its quest for unity with the Absolute. Lucien Stryk, Takahashi's fellow poet and close friend, here presents Takahashi's complete body of Zen poems in an English translation that conveys the grace and power of Takahashi's superb art. "A first-rate poet . . . [Takahashi] springs out of some crack between ordinary worlds: that is, there is some genuine madness of the sort striven for in Zen." -- Robert Bly; "We visit places in Takahashi that we once may have visited in a dream, or in a moment too startling to record the perception. . . . You need know nothing of Zen to become immersed in his work. You will inevitably know something of Zen when you emerge." -- Jim Harrison, American Poetry Review

READING: Imagine a forgotten game of hide and seek. Imagine the days pass and the years, and you forget you're in hiding.... She remembered her mother saying that God knew the name of even the tiniest sparrow and watched over each and every one. And she wondered how God had lost them, how he could not see what was happening to the children in this house. They were the children who had become invisible to God. Somehow they had become hidden in the shadow of a tiny bird. As a child, Robyn Miller had traded Jesus and his angels for Superman. The stars of Sunday school had been called upon many times, after all, and had not lived up to their reputation. By turning her back on them, she showed the angels just how disappointed she was in them for not delivering her from the terrifying circumstances that seemed to forever separate her from the rest of the world. It would be a long time before Robyn would be required to glimpse their presence once again. And that day was growing closer.... Headstrong reporter Robyn Miller has found herself in the middle of a story even she finds hard to believe. As she unravels disturbing truths and encounters the extent to which some will go to keep her quiet, she soon realizes the most chilling story she will ever uncover is her own. In her first novel, In the Shadow of the Sparrow, award-winning journalist Gloria Hillard tells the story of a reporter who investigates her missing childhood and discovers the source of her recurring nightmares only to find herself caught up in an ancient battle between light and dark. "As in "Silence of the Lambs," our heroine must face her fears...Tension-filled and leaves us inspired by the hope that justice will prevail." -- JennieLew Tugend, Producer "Free Willy" and "Return To Me." "A wonderful writer." -- Ann Rule, New York Times Bestselling author.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: ""On a blistering Punjabi morning, Father Joseph approached the group of village headmen gathered in a courtyard. Seated on charpoys in a semicircle, the men did not look happy. Eyes glared and turbaned heads stared, their enmity palpable as they fingered their swords. Suddenly, an old man with a dirty turban approached him nervously. 'Are you the priest who reported this problem?' Joseph said that he was. 'You have done a very bad thing. These are dangerous men. If somebody points a finger at them, they will cut off that finger. Calling them to come here is a big insult. This cannot have a happy ending.'"" ***** "Eye on the Sparrow" chronicles the extraordinary journey of a young Indian-born boy who overcomes poverty, discrimination, and horrific historical events to become one of Pakistan's first indigenous Catholic priests. Growing up amid mosques and madrassas, often walking twenty miles for a holy day celebration, Joseph's story is an insightful (often humorous) account of how a darkskinned Bhatti from Hindu's lowest caste, aspiring only to serve his God, succeeds beyond anything he could have ever imagined. Set against the background of Pakistan's rich and complex history, "Eye on the Sparrow" reveals a unique and compassionate culture that has been torn asunder by the subjugation of foreign rule, the agony of partition, and the oppression of a politically turbulent Islamic state. As Western governments struggle to balance democratic ideals with religious extremism, Father Joseph's story offers a compelling message of faith and hope in the face of terrorism and ignorance.

READING: Not I, Said the Sparrow is a deviously plotted mystery set in a fictional Perth university. In full view of the assembled masses at the annual Graduation Ceremony, an elderly Mathematics professor is shot dead by means of a poisoned dart. A young History lecturer, Lucy, joins her friend, Felicity, another lecturer, to act as a sounding board for the inexperienced detective, Felicity’s cousin, who has been brought in to investigate. Lucy and Felicity were told not to become too involved, but they soon find themselves right in the midst of the action as they uncover a plethora of illegal activities and other skulduggery occurring on campus. Despite this undercurrent of wickedness and corruption, and despite the unpopular Vice Chancellor’s attempts to address a financial crisis closing in on the University, lectures continue and students carry on as students usually carry on. This is a crime novel, but there is no gratuitous violence, and the emphasis is more on the characters and the mystery than the actual murder. It gives insights into work at a university and treats its material lightly, with a touch of humour. This book would appeal to a wide audience, especially those who like the challenge of a good mystery.
