THE MIDDLE KINGDOM, Barrett, Andrea
149 Barrett, Andrea THE MIDDLE KINGDOM
Flamingo 2001 0007102887 / 9780007102884 Paperback Very Good 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Andrea Barrett is best known for her novel The Voyage of The Narwhal and a collection of short stories, Ship Fever. In both these books scientific dis covery, history and the natural world are wonderful backdrops to intimate, personal dramas. The Middle Kingdom is an earlier work but the same keen se nse of curiosity about life and the way to live it glimmers on the page. The novel opens in the recent past, in Tiananmen Square. There is smoke, gu nfire and confusion, a sense of history being destroyed and re-made into so mething else. In the midst of this historical shattering, is a character st udy of an American woman teaching natural history in a Chinese laboratory. Grace Hoffmeier's story starts off "stunted and stilted, common and sad", b ut by the end of the novel she has found the "middle way--not too much look ing back. Not too much dreaming ahead". Grace's is an American tale, one of stifling family conflicts; and two bad marriages that look like escape routes, but are just another way of being trapped. Grace overeats to compensate for all her mistakes, to swaddle her desires, to stop herself thinking: "that was how I existed then: push, shut, close, seal, deny, forget". But on a trip to China, with her husband Walter, a meeting at a scientific conference forces her to reassesses her past and take control of her future. Andrea Barrett's prose is lyrical and sure, blending fact with fiction in an elegant meditation on personal freedom and political repression. Grace's story is shadowed by real events in China, giving her voyage of discovery an extraordinary vividness and

Yet the bereaved widow soon finds that it's only the beginning of her misfortune...as she receives a sinister missive accusing her and the Earl's nephew of adultery-and murder. Desperately afraid that the letter will expose her to the worst sort of scandal, Isobel begs Jane for help. And Jane finds herself embroiled in a perilous investigation that will soon have her following a trail of clues that leads all the way to Newgate Prison and the House of Lords-a trail that may well place Jane's own person in the gravest jeopardy.

When his mate Farley app arently commits suicide over a girl called Alice, Harry sets his sights on the bereaved, convinced that she's the woman of his dreams.

Sporting metaphors are served up fast and furious in this rogues' rally:"So by cutting the levity ... he br ought the fight onto his own territory. Even if he failed ... he would stil l be there, like a tennis player hanging on in a demanding rally, biding hi s time to regain the cent re of the court."

In writing a comic thriller set in South Florida, the Pulitzer-winning Miam i Herald columnist and author of 20 books of satirical nonfiction (most rec ently, Dave Barry Turns 50) risks the inevitable comparison to Carl Hiaasen .

A stunning new novel from the Man Booker shortlisted author of The Secret S cripture Award-winning author Sebastian Barry's The Temporary Gentleman is the sixth book in his cycle of separate yet interconnected novels that brilliantly reimagine characters from Barry's own family. In this highly anticipated new novel, Irishman Jack McNulty is a ''temporary gentleman'' - an Irishman whose commission in the British army in WWII was never permanent. Sitting in his lodgings in Accra, Ghana, in 1957, he's writing the story of his life with desperate urgency. He cannot take one step further without examining all of the extraordinary events that he has seen. A lifetime of war and world travel - as a soldier in WWII, an engineer, a UN observer - has brought him to this point. But the memory that weighs heaviest on his heart is that of the beautiful Mai Kirwan and their tempestuous, heartbreaking marriage. Mai was once the great beauty of Sligo, a magnetic yet unstable woman who, after sharing a life with Jack, gradually slipped from his grasp.
