✏More Than They Bargained For Book Summary : parliamentary maneuvers, a camel slipping on icy Madison streets as union firefighters rushed to assist, massive nonviolent street protests, and a weeks-long occupation that blocked the marble halls of the Capitol and made its rotunda ring. Jason Stein and Patrick Marley, award-winning journalists for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, covered the fight firsthand. They center their account on the frantic efforts of state officials meeting openly and in the Capitol's elegant backrooms as protesters demonstrated outside. Conducting new in-depth interviews with elected officials, labor leaders, cops, protestors, and other key figures, and drawing on new documents and their own years of experience as statehouse reporters, Stein and Marley have written a gripping account of the wildest sixteen months in Wisconsin politics since the era of Joe McCarthy.

✏Shantaram Book Summary : "It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured." So begins this epic, mesmerizing first novel by Gregory David Roberts, set in the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Shantaram is narrated by Lin, an escaped convict with a false passport who flees maximum security prison in Australia for the teeming streets of a city where he can disappear. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, the two enter Bombay's hidden society of beggars and gangsters, prostitutes and holy men, soldiers and actors, and Indians and exiles from other countries, who seek in this remarkable place what they cannot find elsewhere. As a hunted man without a home, family, or identity, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums, and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The search leads him to war, prison torture, murder, and a series of enigmatic and bloody betrayals. The keys to unlock the mysteries and intrigues that bind Lin are held by two people. The first is Khader Khan: mafia godfather, criminal-philosopher-saint, and mentor to Lin in the underworld of the Golden City. The second is Karla: elusive, dangerous, and beautiful, whose passions are driven by secrets that torment her and yet give her a terrible power. Burning slums and five-star hotels, romantic love and prison agonies, criminal wars and Bollywood films, spiritual gurus and mujaheddin guerrillas---this huge novel has the world of human experience in its reach, and a passionate love for India at its heart. Based on the life of the author, it is by any measure the debut of an extraordinary voice in literature.

The army is alert. Then two herds of government-allocated cattle intended for the Northern Cheyenne are missing. So are more than 20 young warriors sent to bring them to the people gathered on the reservation between the Rosebud and the tongue. Without the cattle, the people will starve—or maybe take by force that which is neccesary to survive. Two brothers, one Cheyenne (a Warchief named Bear-That-Walks-The-Sky) and the other white (named Jed who is also a deadly gunman called the Breed), must deal with the mystery before the Northern Plains again run red with blood. In the midst of this, Jed must settle some things, and help the woman he has chosen for his life to recover from injuries received in the tale told in Book I.

✏Albert s Boy Book Summary : Blackly humorous drama of Einstein's tortured conscience Why do you think I've been locked in this room? I've been grieving for a wife, a sister, three hundred thousand Japanese civilians, the presence of a universe gone mad, and the absence of a theory to explain it. Albert Einstein is not feeling too good. His house is empty, his cat is missing, he can't remember where he put his violin - and he is slowly driving himself insane as he struggles to solve the unanswerable question - "Did I do the right thing?" When a family friend, newly released from a Chinese POW camp, comes to visit, a warm reunion soon becomes an explosive collision of opposing beliefs on the subjects of evil, the winning of wars, and the construction of the world's first weapon of mass destruction - the atomic bomb. Albert's Boy commemorates the World Year of Physics, the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the 50th anniversary of Einsteins death. This is the second play by 22 year old James Graham. His first play, Coal not Dole played at the Edinburgh Festival in 2002 and subsequently toured the North of England. He is writer in residence at the Finborough Theatre.
