Description : Print | eBook Language: English 150 pages Illustrations, map Vol. 12 , 2016 ISSN: 1660-9638 ISBN: Print: 978-3-905758-79-5 Ulla Dentlinger Where are you from? 'Playing White' under Apartheid “My family did the unthinkable: after getting away with ‘playing white’ for some years, we went one step further and ‘jumped the colour line’. By various obscure and not well-documented processes, we changed our ‘racial classification’ from ‘coloured’ – as defined by the apartheid policy of the day – to that of ‘white’ … The price we paid was anguish, constant fear of detection and a sacrifice of family connectedness. The decades-long process of becoming completely comfortable with my ultimate identity was psychologically so unnerving that I have only recently felt free to talk about it. This is certainly the first time I have ever written about it.” With these words the fascinating story of Ulla Dentlinger’s life history begins. Growing up in poor, rural Apartheid-Namibia in the early 1950s, Ulla Dentlinger soon learns that her parents are not prone to reminisce about their family’s past. The most mundane information about their background is guarded much like a state secret. As a child, she begins to panic at being asked the question so normal to others: Where are you from? Only in later years it dawns on her that she had to be a ‘Coloured’. The sense of conflict increases incrementally. Nonetheless, after living in Namibia for the first six years of her life, she grows up in a white area in Cape Town, goes to a white school and bears herself in a German fashion. She has, in fact, jumped the colour line. Returning to southern Africa in the 1990s, she now openly pursues investigations into her family background. Ulla Dentlinger portrays some of her relatives and their intimate, painful or straightforward stories as well as her own emotional realisation about her enriching heritage.

Description : The story is about Inez, a Hungarian girl who takes on a job as an au pair in London right after finishing college. She finds an advert in a newspaper and meets with the mother, who lives with her French husband and two boys (eight and five) in London. The girl’s journey begins in the south of France. She suddenly finds herself in the French Riviera in a beautiful house, with two boys whom she will have to take care of. They spend the summer holiday in France getting to know each other and the extended family. In September, the family moves back to Chiswick, London. Everybody starts to go after their duties, and Inez’s daily routine takes shape too. It isn’t exactly what she was looking for, and she doesn’t really get along with the mother, but at least she finds friends at the English school. The mother gets pregnant, and then it turns out that the whole family has to pack up and move to Colorado. The transition period turns out to be horrific. The situation gets a little out of hand, especially after the new baby arrives. Inez’s year of duty ends in the summer after one last job she has to do for the family: accompany the boys as they fly back to Budapest.

Description : By the time of his early death in 1988, Raymond Carver had established himself as one of the great practitioners of the American short story, a writer who had not only found his own voice but imprinted it in the imaginations of thousands of readers. Where I’m Calling From, his last collection, encompasses classic stories from Cathedral, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, and earlier Carver volumes, along with seven new works previously unpublished in book form. Together, these 37 stories give us a superb overview of Carver’s life work and show us why he was so widely imitated but never equaled.

Description : At loose ends, he decides to go back and seek out the people of his past, including his long-lost love, Armanda. He succeeds in finding her but discovers that she has lost her youthful innocence as the result of a nightmarish life of drug addiction, prostitution, and the murder of her (and Ismael's) child. Diaz's attempts to rescue Armanda finally lead him to death row. As he writes his story in prison, he also learns the "way of the jaguar" from another inmate. Partly ancient Aztec philosophy and partly an idiosyncratic, extrapolated doctrine, it entails facing down La Pelona - death itself - and accepting life.
