Summary : The story takes place in South Africa and India. In South Africa, the narrator, Paul, drifts between an ideal world, where he is happily married to his partner Nirraz, and a dark and horrible nightmare where an unidentified madman is torturing him in the gay couple's own wine cellar. Nirraz is a sociologist and his lover Paul teaches biology at the local school. The couple have the special ability to experience the same grotesque dreams-they recite their ten dreams to a psychologist. The couple is friends with their neighbour Sheila, a divorcée, her boyfriend Peter and her son Liam, who gets close to the gay couple. There is lots of goings on in the Jacuzzi of the gay couple's home and an atmosphere of sexual jealously arises. The madman's life and the ten dreams are connected to a remote village in India where an eighty-year-old hermaphrodite virgin, Shamele, is responsible for creating dream pills. The pills allow one to dream of one's death and one's reincarnation. A yellow butterfly carved out of a stone taken from the mountain near the village is believed to be cursed and was sold to a South African tourist-the yellow butterfly became an integral part of the madman's childhood. Paul's happy world starts crumbling as terrible events take place in his hometown. His ideal world merges with his nightmare in the cellar and a macabre twist at the end plunges him into a dark world where the fates of the torturer and his helpless victim are finally decided. This book is not for the feint hearted.

Summary : Walter E. A. van Beek draws on over four decades of extensive fieldwork to offer an in-depth study of the religion of the Kapsiki/Higi, who live in the Mandara Mountains on the border between North Cameroon and Northeast Nigeria. Concentrating on ritual as the core of traditional religion, van Beek shows how Kapsiki/Higi practices have endured through the long and turbulent history of the region. Kapsiki rituals reveal a focus on two fundamental concepts: dwelling and belonging. Van Beek examines their sacrificial practices, through which the Kapsiki show a complex and pervasive connection with the Mandara Mountains, as well as the character of their relationships among themselves and with outsiders. Van Beek also explores their rituals of belonging, rites of passage which take place from birth through initiation and marriage - and even death, with the tradition of the ''dancing dead,'' when a fully decorated corpse on the shoulders of a smith ''dances'' with his mourning kinsmen. The Dancing Dead is the result of the author's lifelong study of the Kapsiki/Higi. It gives a unique description of the rituals in an African traditional religion based not upon ancestors, but on a completely relational thought system, where in the end all rituals are integrated into one major cycle.

Summary : This volume had its beginnings in the two-day colloquium, "Rethinking Chichén Itzá, Tula and Tollan," that was held at Dumbarton Oaks. The selected essays revisit long-standing questions regarding the nature of the relationship between Chichen Itza and Tula. Rather than approaching these questions through the notions of migrations and conquests, these essays place the cities in the context of the emerging social, political, and economic relationships that took shape during the transition from the Epiclassic period in Central Mexico, the Terminal Classic period in the Maya region, and the succeeding Early Postclassic period.

Summary : "Bill Tremblay is an unusual poet in this time. . . . People are real to him. I find he has a fantastic grasp of the way human psyches, especially those in distress, move, and he does not encourage the pale aesthetic stuff . . . but writes about the most important experiences." -Robert Bly "Bill Tremblay's poems are committed to life. That's not easy, not even particularly common of poetry in the United States now. The verse is at once socially engaged and well-crafted. Tremblay looks at history and moment, tangles with it all, struggles from it and deals it to us in the poem." -Margaret Randall "Bill Tremblay's poems are, at their best, fresh measures of a man who is most alive in moments of crisis and confrontation. His poems come at the reader hip and shoulder, ecstasy by catastrophe, and come prepared to turn even humiliation into a triumph of sorts, sometimes by sheer force of presence." -William Pitt Root, Poetry Describing Duhamel: Ideas of Order in Little Canada: "The harsh, complex clarity and paradoxically tender compassion of this book make an extraordinary power for the dimensions of its hero, Duhamel. No work of recent poetry has entered such ground at all. Bill Tremblay offers a unique testament to a world whose brutal fragility has found no other way to speak." -Robert Creeley Bill Tremblay grew up in the shadows of the mills of Southbridge, Massachusetts, and later worked in those same mills, a body of experience that informs all of his writing. The author of six full-length collections of poetry and one novel, The June Rise: The Apocryphal Letters of Antoine Janis, he teaches at Colorado State University.
