The Selected Works of Abdullah the Cossack

Praise for The Selected Works of Abdullah the Cossack “The great Pakistani city of Karachi, says the titular narrator of H.M. Naqvi’s The Selected Works of Abdullah the Cossack, was once a cultural mecca . . .That boisterous entrepot is long since gone . . . yet it survives in the memory of the novel’s aging hero, and in this delirious love letter to the Karachi that was . . . Thrust into wheezing, hobbling action, Abdullah protects his friends and confronts his adversaries with a boldness and verbosity that is one part Don Quixote and one part Ignatius J. Reilly.”—Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal  “Naqvi’s second novel (after Homeboy) is an uproariously funny, poignant family saga told by a glib septuagenarian contemplating life in his beloved city of Karachi....Touching on the metaphysical, the moral, and the absurd, this bawdy epic is a fresh-voiced testament to place, family, and the importance of loyalty.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review “Naqvi here delivers his promised ‘big, bad comic epic.’ This exhuberant account, featuring a protagonist as unlikely as he is appealing, is a true pleasure for its language and discourses on life, death, and what’s in between.”—Booklist, starred review “A love story, a caper, a family dust-up, a farce—prizewinning Pakistani writer Naqvi’s second novel offers all these things, yet they matter less than its lovingly evoked milieu, the uniquely vibrant neighborhoods and characters, culture, history, architecture, and aromas of the city. Infused with the spirit of Tristram Shandy, a sophisticated shaggy dog story for those happy to take the slow road and its many detours.”—Kirkus Reviews “A guide, a gourmand, an impassioned  septuagenarian full to bursting with a love of jazz, poetry, history, his beloved hometown—H.M. Naqvi’s remarkable Cossack is the Pakistani Falstaff, the Tristram Shandy of “Currachee,” spinning yarns inside yarns, allusive, affirming, and grandly comic. But The Selected Works also asks: what might an old man owe a brother, a lover, a ward? And in answering that, becomes moving.” —Joshua Ferris “Wild, wise, and tender, The Selected Works of Abdullah the Cossack is like nothing you’ve read before yet somehow echoes as intimately as the voices of your own soul. Every page in this book is a playground, and each sentence an absolute thrill and joy to read.”—Patricia Engel “What a fun, fantastic, original thing this is.”—Akhil Sharma “Once a decade a voice emerges in English that performs a vernacular sonic boom: hearing it on the page, you instantly realize people had been speaking this way for a while, the novel just had not caught up. It happened with Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children and Peter Carey’s Illywacker and with Zadie Smith’s White Teeth, Junot Diaz’s Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and Chimamanda Adichie’s Americanah. With this noisy, rambunctious, hilarious novel, HM Naqvi joins their ranks. He has brought a brand new sound into the novel in English. It is riveting and robust, unlike anything I’ve ever read. You can almost hear sound waves clap hands in gratitude as the novel catches up with the world again.”—John Freeman “H.M. Naqvi is a superb stylist and writes like a poet. With careful attention to details and with enormous patience he presents a world that is at once fascinating and familiar. The Selected Works of Abdullah the Cossack is completely original in form and sensibility.”—Ha Jin Praise for Home Boy “Smart and sorrowful . . . Naqvi is a former slam poet, and his exuberant sentences burst with the rhythms and driving power of that form while steering clear of bombast. Home Boy is a remarkably engaging novel that delights as it disturbs.”—Joseph Salvatore, New York Times Book Review “Narrated with great

Cuban Flavor

A lush journey through Cuba, its paladars, and its flavorful cuisine For Cubans, food is a complex story—a tapestry of love and loss woven so deeply into their culture that it goes well beyond that of history or sustenance. Gershman, who’s love affair with Cuba began long before her first visit, takes you along on a photojournalistic journey through the streets of Cuba and its paladares through her stunning photographs of the country’s glorious sights, the lively people, and, of course, the amazing variety of food. Much more than a cookbook, Cuban Flavor is an introduction to a revolutionary era of Cuban cuisine: a new frontier. Growth and transition foster the seed of invention and innovation, and these shifts often begin with food. From the succulent spiced meat of the national Ropa Viejo, simmered in a tomato-based criollo sauce, to the sweet and sticky Arroz Con Leche or the local favorite, Flan served in a soda can, Cuban cuisine has something for every palate. Pair these delights with a warm, sultry night, an old convertible, and a jazz band, and sit back as you fall deeply in love again . . . or for the very first time. This visually arresting volume features more than fifty Cuban recipes, from appetizers to main courses and drinks to desserts. Along with color photographs of the dishes, you’ll also get to meet the people who create them. This remarkable volume offers a taste of the little-known culture to a public that has long been deprived of its intoxicating flavors.

With poems from spiritual teachers to jazz musicians, from the monastery to the street, What Book!? brings together a boad range of verse, expressions of living in an awakened way. ' A poet once located poetry as somewhere before or after words take place. Mindfulness is the practice of finding that realm, dwelling there, and cultivating the ability to live completely in the present, deeply aware and appreciative of life.' - from the author's Preface. 'This enigmatically titled anthology offers numerous delights and valuable evidence that great poetic variety, from haiku and witty two liners to page-long discourses, has by now given distinct expression to Western Buddhism.' - Publisher's Weekly.
