Edouard Leve,Jan Steyn,: Works



"A book describes works conceived of but not realized by its author." Like "Suicide" and "Autoportrait," "Works" is another of Eduoard Lev?'s bewitching reconceptions of what the novel can (or should) do. A list of 533 projects, beginning with its own description--both likely and unlikely, sober and ridiculous; some of which Lev? later realized, most of which he did not--"Works" ranks with the fiction of Georges Perec for its seemingly limitless, ingenious, and comical inventiveness. A lampoon of conceptual art--if not, indeed, an exemplar of its charms at their best--"Works" is another piece in the puzzle of Lev?'s brief and fascinating life.

If the Oceans Were Ink is Carla Power's eye-opening story of how she and her long-time friend Sheikh Mohammad Akram Nadwi found a way to confront ugly stereotypes and persistent misperceptions that were cleaving their communities. Their friendship-between a secular American and a madrasa - trained sheikh - had always seemed unlikely, but now they were frustrated and bewildered by the battles being fought in their names. Both knew that a close look at the Quran would reveal a faith that preached peace and not mass murder; respect for women and not oppression. And so they embarked on a yearlong journey through the controversial text. A journalist who grew up in the Midwest and the Middle East, Power offers her unique vantage point on the Quran's most provocative verses as she debates with Akram at cafes, family gatherings, and packed lecture halls, conversations filled Works free epub with both good humour and powerful insights. Their story takes them to madrasas in India and pilgrimage sites in Mecca, as they encounter politicians and jihadis, feminist activists and conservative scholars.Armed with a new understanding of each other's worldviews, Power and Akram offer eye-opening perspectives, destroy long-held myths, and reveal startling connections between worlds that have seemed hopelessly divided for far too long.
