The daring, eagerly anticipated second novel by The National Book Award-nominated author of Fieldwork Mischa Berlinski's first novel, Fieldwork, was published in 2007 to rave reviews - Hilary Mantel called it "a quirky, often brilliant debut" and Stephen King said it was "a story that cooks like a mother" - and it was a finalist for the National Book Award. Now Berlinski returns with Peacekeeping, an equally enthralling story of love, politics, and death in the world's most intriguing country: Haiti. When Terry White, a former deputy sheriff and a failed politician, goes broke in the 2007-2008 financial crisis, he takes a job working for the UN, helping to train the Haitian police. He's sent to the remote town of Jérémie, where there are more coffin makers than restaurants, more donkeys than cars, and the dirt roads all slope down sooner or later to the postcard sea. Terry is swept up in the town's complex politics when he befriends an earnest, reforming, American-educated judge. Soon he convinces the judge to oppose the corrupt but charismatic Sénateur Maxim Bayard in an upcoming election. But when Terry falls in love with the judge's wife, the electoral drama threatens to become a disaster. Tense, atmospheric, tightly plotted, and surprisingly funny, Peacekeeping confirms Berlinski's gifts as a storyteller. Like Fieldwork, it explores a part of the world that is as fascinating as it is misunderstood - and takes us into the depths of the human soul, where the thirst for power and the need for love can overrun judgment and morality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Williams. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aren/002210/bk_aren_002210_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Göttingen (Englisches Seminar), course: Gender and Intertextuality in Contemporary Retellings of Fairy Tales, 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The British female author A.S Byatt has always been fascinated by fairy stories, 'from years of reading myths and fairytales under the bedclothes, from the delights and freedoms and terrors of worlds and creatures that never existed.' In 1994, she published her own collection of fairy tales, titled 'The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye'. Four of the five tales are quite short and told in a narrative style typical for the genre, whereas the title story, which merges realism and fantasy, is of the length of a novella. The first two stories of the collection, 'The Glass Coffin' and 'Gode's Story', were originally published in Byatt's successful novel 'Possession' and are reprinted verbatim in combination with three new stories in 'The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye'. Byatt's work is remarkably intertextual, 'The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye' seems virtually to be a rich collage of fairy tale motifs. While the title story brims over with references to narratives of Oriental origin, as the Tales from Arabian Nights, the epics of Gilgamesh or the ancient myth of Cybele, and the works of Shakespeare and Chaucer, 'The Glass Coffin' and 'The Story of the Eldest Princess' are based on many themes and elements alluding to the traditional European fairy tales collected by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm. Byatt herself mentions that 'I read through the whole collection (in German) and made a kind of patchwork or jigsaw Tale out of all the motifs that most moved and excited me [...].' This essay wants to examine how Byatt uses and transforms these familiar motifs, plots and characters from the 'old stories' in order to give her heroines more power over her own life in her new stories.
