    All You Can Ever Know

    What does it mean to lose your roots within your culture, within your family? And what happens when you find them? Nicole Chung was born severely premature, placed for adoption by her Korean parents, and raised by a white family in a sheltered Oregon town. From childhood, she heard the story of her adoption as a comforting, pre-packaged myth.

    Dreamers

    $21.00

    At the end of the First World War in Germany, the journalist and theatre critic Kurt Eisner organised a revolution which overthrew the monarchy, and declared a Free State of Bavaria.

    $22.00

    Translated by Will Stone Stefan Zweig was a born eulogist.

I feel myself quite unburdened, disconnected, free - There is something in it marvellously uplifting and invigorating.

    Nietzsche

    $21.00

    A compelling portrait of one of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, by one of the bestselling writers of the twentieth. In this vivid biographical study, Zweig eschews traditional academic discussion and focuses on Nietzsche's habits, passions and obsessions. Concentrating on the man rather than the work, on his tragic isolation and volatile creativity, Zweig draws the reader inexorably into the drama of Nietzsche's life. Paperback: 128 PagesProduct Dimensions: 129 x 198 mmIS...
