A Beautiful Resistance By Bronia Veitch
Paperback: $9.99

Until 1989, Bronia had not known of anyone who had been hidden, like herself, as a child in Nazi occupied Europe.  The term Hidden Child was only coined when the first World Gathering of Hidden... More > Children was planned to take place in New York in 1991, inspired by a documentary 'As if it were Yesterday ' about Belgian Rescuers. Bronia attended this Gathering where she was one of 1,600 hidden children  whilst another 1,500 had been unable to attend. In this book, which she has written in homage to the Rescuers who saved her and thousands of others at the peril of their lives, Bronia tells of the exceptional Civilian Resistance rescues in Belgium. Ninety-four per cent of the 58,000+ Jews in Belgium at the invasion in May 1940 were not Belgian citizens but Eastern European immigrants in the 1920's and refugees from Germany in the late 1930's.  They were mainly working class and Yiddish or German speaking; yet over 34,000 survived, through the courage and loving kindness of their Rescuers.< Less
Dusk Bird By Nicholas Bradley

Nicholas Bradley's poems are records of epiphanic moments in an arduous and wandering life.  Many of them ( though not all ) are "country" poems and have both the down-to-earth realism... More > of John Clare and the sophisticated self-awareness of Edward Thomas.  At the same time they are highly original and post-modern in tone and style, oblique and allusive without being perversely obscure. Bradley died in 2012, aged 59. This posthumous selection has been made from a much larger body of his work.< Less

OLD LOVE By Colin Wood
Paperback: $9.17
Prints in 3-5 business days
Since the beginning of the 20th century traditional poetic forms have been felt to be unsuitable for the expression of the modern sensibility. Poets have therefore evolved new and more flexible... More > forms and more oblique modes of expression. Often, however, freedom from set forms has resulted in formlessness, incoherence and obscurity. Colin Wood's poems strike a balance between traditional and modern forms, aiming at clarity and conciseness whilst still embracing contemporary themes. His translations - from French, Russian and Spanish - aim to capture the spirit of the originals without slavish adherence to the letter. The result is a varied and entertaining first volume of poetry.< Less
