Meet Merlin. He's Lucy's bright, beautiful son - who just happens to be autistic. Since Merlin's father left them in the lurch, Lucy has made Merlin the centre of her world. Struggling with the joys and tribulations of raising her adorable yet challenging child (if only Merlin came with operating instructions), Lucy doesn't have room for any other man in her life. By the time Merlin turns ten, Lucy is seriously worried that the Pope might start ringing her up for tips on celibacy, so resolves to dip a toe back into the world of dating. Thanks to Merlin's candour and quirkiness, things don't go quite to plan... Then, just when Lucy's resigned to singledom once more, Archie - the most imperfectly perfect man for her and her son - lands on her doorstep. But then, so does Merlin's father, begging for a second chance. Does Lucy need a real father for Merlin - or a real partner for herself?

In a city somewhere exists a gated community for the very unique - a place where 'special' babies live, breathe, go to school, learn and escape the pressures of their unique identity. A community for those whose baby needs will not be hidden nor dismissed. Adults, teenagers and children - all babies on the inside - have special needs and are not accepted by the community at large. Learning to be a baby in an adult world is hard and for many, impossible. Some don't make it through, but there is a place for the few where the baby inside can also be the baby outside and the adult life that must invariably be ultimately traversed, becomes easier after time spent in... THE CITY OF DREAMS. Sanctuary for the babies in so many of us is here. Now. Come and read about four young people and their parents and how they came to a place of safety and adventure... in diapers.

Will Traverse is a war baby, a Brisbane boy, and in later life a taciturn and solitary retired engineer. But there is another side to Will – romantic, lyrical, and deeply sensitive to the culture of the original inhabitants of this part of South-East Queensland. His work on a novel about the impact of the arrival of the Europeans coincides with the unexpected re-kindling of a lost love. As he and Mary Wright hesitantly rediscover their mutual affection the long arc of their own story becomes interwoven with Will’s emerging novel. Together, the two stories reveal layers of history of the Brisbane region – a metropolis radically transformed again within Will’s lifetime. Meanjin Crossing ends enigmatically, a mix of sadness and hope, and certainty that the story is not over.

Učte se anglicky čtením indiánských pohádek! Téměř před sto lety byla americká spisovatelka Mabel Powersová požádána, aby se stala mluvčí Indiánské společnosti. Poznala tak spoustu nových přátel a také pohádky, které Irokézové vyprávěli svým dětem, aby se z nich stali dobří, stateční a nesobečtí lidé. Pohádky se předávaly v ústním podání z generace na generaci. Dnes už bohužel spousta z nich upadla v zapomnění, ale díky již zmíněné Mabel Powersové si alespoň některé z nich můžete přečíst. Doufáme, že se vám příběhy plné skřítků, duchů, zvířat mluvících lidskou řečí ale i poetiky a moudrosti budou líbit, a zároveň se dozvíte i něco nového z anglického jazyka. Součástí je i nahrávka ke stažení.

There's nothing in a glorious summer's day to suggest anything even remotely sinister. In fact, Alex Callahan, a news correspondent, surprises himself by enjoying the Renaissance Faire that his six-year-old twins, Kevin and Sean, have forced him to visit. The boys are delighted by the jugglers and magicians, jesters and foodmongers dressed in full Elizabethan costume. But it's the joust that the boys have really been waiting to see. Alex takes a break to watch, while keeping half an eye on the twins, but when he turns to see how they are enjoying themselves, they're nowhere to be seen. The perfect day has turned into every parent's nightmare. His sons have disappeared, and Alex is an immediate suspect. But no one can explain the bizarre origami figure he finds after he returns to his empty house. Or the bowl of water that has been left on the top shelf of the wardrobe. Or, the T-shirt soaked in blood... As police attention to the case wanes, Alex's own investigations uncover a sinister, underground world that he never dreamed existed. A world where reality is portrayed as illusion, and where the reason behind the twins' disappearance is more terrifying than anything Alex can imagine...

The story of an extraterrestrial visitor from another planet is designed mainly to say something about life on this one' NEW YORK TIMES Thomas Jerome Newton is an extraterrestrial from the planet Anthea, which has been devastated by a series of nuclear wars, and whose inhabitants are twice as intelligent as human beings. When he lands on Earth - in Kentucky, disguised as a human - it's with the intention of saving his own people from extinction. Newton patents some very advanced Anthean technology, which he uses to amass a fortune. He begins to build a spaceship to help the last 300 Antheans migrate to Earth. Meanwhile, Nathan Bryce, a chemistry professor in Iowa, is intrigued by some of the new products Newton's company brings to the market, and already suspects Newton of being an alien. As Bryce and the FBI close in, Newton finds his own clarity and sense of purpose diminishing. Discover the book which inspired the classic film with David Bowie and the new Paramount+ series with Chiwetel Ejiofor!
