With James Herriot, Mitzi Brunsdale contributes the first full-length literary study of this beloved writer. Arguing that central to Herriot's writing is the morality underlying his seemingly simple tales, the book combines a lively writing style with a balanced critical appraisal to evaluate the writer's life and works. Organizing her material in 10 chapters, Brunsdale first presents an engaging biographical portrait of her subject and then discusses each of the works by category - Herriot's principal autobiographical collections, his series of children's books, the travel volume James Herriot's Yorkshire, and the films and tapes. Punctuating the analyses are telling, often wry comments gleaned from Herriot's interviews and observations from various critics and other contemporaries. "My books are a restatement of old values: hard work and integrity," James Herriot often remarked. In this study readers will come to appreciate the importance of that sentiment to all Herriot's efforts and, along the way, will be thoroughly entertained and informed. An excellent companion to courses in popular culture, James Herriot holds irresistible appeal for students, librarians, and general readers.
After Mengele was felled, Pearl wore a white fur and clutched a tabby kitten while
tap-dancing on top of a piano as lustrous as her name, and ... at the heels, brief
flecks of mud that indicated that Pearl's departure had not been so sudden as to
allow her to leave without a smudge. Such tracks are the marks of a stolen

Longlisted for the Dublin Literary Award 2018 It's 1944 when the twin sisters arrive at Auschwitz with their mother and grandfather. In their benighted new world, Pearl and Stasha Zagorski take refuge in their identical natures, comforting themselves with the private language and shared games of their childhood. As part of the experimental population of twins known as Mengele's Zoo, the girls experience privileges and horrors unknown to others, and they find themselves changed, stripped of the personalities they once shared, their identities altered by the burdens of guilt and pain. That winter, at a concert orchestrated by Mengele, Pearl disappears. Stasha grieves for her twin, but clings to the possibility that Pearl remains alive. When the camp is liberated by the Red Army, she and her companion Feliks - a boy bent on vengeance for his own lost twin - travel through Poland's devastation. Undeterred by injury, starvation, or the chaos around them, motivated by equal parts danger and hope, they encounter hostile villagers, Jewish resistance fighters, and fellow refugees, their quest enabled by the notion that Mengele may be captured and brought to justice within the ruins of the Warsaw Zoo. As the young survivors discover what has become of the world, they must try to imagine a future within it.
