Join Books+ today for a world in which no-one can sleep - and Kenneth Calhoun's Black Moon is as nightmarish as it sounds. In Kamila Shamsie's latest novel, A God in Every Stone, an Indian soldier in World War 1 loses his eye - and his naiveté at the same time. Irish born, Canadian writer Emma Donoghue takes us to the cosmopolitan, changing city of San Francisco in the late 19th century with Frog Music; and Christine Piper into an Australian internment camp during World War 2. That's After Darkness, a historical novel that won her the Australian Vogel Prize.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
