The Flight of Gemma Hardy

by Margot Livesey

When her widower father drowns at sea, Gemma Hardy is taken from her native Iceland to Scotland to live with her kind uncle and his family. But the death of her doting guardian leaves Gemma under the care of her resentful aunt, and it soon becomes clear that she is nothing more than an unwelcome guest at Yew House. When she receives a scholarship to a private school, ten-year-old Gemma believes she's found the perfect solution and eagerly sets out again to a new home. However, at Claypoole she finds herself treated as an unpaid servant. To Gemma's delight, the school goes bankrupt, and she takes a job as an au pair on the Orkney Islands. The remote Blackbird Hall belongs to Mr. Sinclair, a London businessman; his eight-year-old niece is Gemma's charge. Even before their first meeting, Gemma is, like everyone on the island, intrigued by Mr. Sinclair. Rich (by Gemma's standards), single, flying in from London when he pleases, Hugh Sinclair fills the house with life. An unlikely couple, the two are drawn to each other, but Gemma's biggest trial is about to begin: a journey of passion and betrayal, redemption and discovery, that will lead her to a life of which she's never dreamed. Set in Scotland and Iceland in the 1950s and '60s, The Flight of Gemma Hardy-a captivating homage to Charlotte BrontË's Jane Eyre-is a sweeping saga that resurrects the timeless themes of the original but is destined to become a classic all its own.

The Flight of the Dragonfly

by Robert L. Forward

With the publication of Dragon's Egg, a breathtaking, brilliantly extrapolated exploration of alien intelligence on a neutron star, Robert L. Forward delighted readers and critics alike with a tour-de-force marriage of known physics to the wonder-filled unknown, earning the praise of such masters as Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. Now Dr. Forward turns that same sure eye, sharp and twinkling, to the corrosive, lopsided seas and jagged, volcanic peaks of the double-globed planet Roche-world, discovered in the near future by flyby probes sent to scan the region surrounding Barnard's Star, and chosen as the destination for the first manned expedition beyond our solar system. Propelled on their generation-long, sub-light speed voyage by laser-powered lightsails, a select crew of sixteen top pilots, astrophysicists, and other specialists aboard the interstellar ship Prometheus acquaint themselves with such shipboard marvels as the computerized "imps" and the "Christmas Bush" while readying the surface excursion module known as Magic Dragonfly for its descent into the frontiers of Roche and Eau, the environmentally disparate, atmospherically linked components of the world from which they can never return. When the Dragonfly accidentally crash-lands during its investigative pursuit of an anomaly in Eau's ammonia- laden seas, the crew aboard Prometheus plan a rescue mission while deciphering the data coming in through "Jill, the Dragonfly's onboard computer, at breakneck speed. For the "anomaly," one of many, is not only intelligent but as inquisitive as the humans set adrift upon Eau's frozen seas. While across the gulf of space, all humanity awaits word of the Dragonfly's fate, human and flouwen confront each other to span the gulf of fear and solitude, and each greets the emissaries of an alien race.

The Flight of the Intellectuals: The Controversy Over Islam and the Press

by Paul Berman

Twenty years ago, Ayatollah Khomeini called for the assassination of Salman Rushdie--and writers around the world instinctively rallied to Rushdie's defense. Today, according to writer Paul Berman, "Rushdie has metastasized into an entire social class"--an ever-growing group of sharp-tongued critics of Islamist extremism, especially critics from Muslim backgrounds, who survive only because of pseudonyms and police protection. And yet, instead of being applauded, the Rushdies of today (people like Ayan Hirsi Ali and Ibn Warraq) often find themselves dismissed as "strident" or as no better than fundamentalist themselves, and contrasted unfavorably with representatives of the Islamist movement who falsely claim to be "moderates."How did this happen? In THE FLIGHT OF THE INTELLECTUALS, Berman--"one of America's leading public intellectuals" (Foreign Affairs)--conducts a searing examination into the intellectual atmosphere of the moment and shows how some of the West's best thinkers and journalists have fumbled badly in their efforts to grapple with Islamist ideas and violence. Berman's investigation of the history and nature of the Islamist movement includes some surprising revelations. In examining Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, he shows the rise of an immense and often violent worldview, elements of which survives today in the brigades of al-Qaeda and Hamas. Berman also unearths the shocking story of al-Banna's associate, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who collaborated personally with Adolf Hitler to incite Arab support of the Nazis' North African campaign. Echoes of the Grand Mufti's Nazified Islam can be heard among the followers of al-Banna even today.In a gripping and stylish narrative Berman also shows the legacy of these political traditions, most importantly by focusing on a single philosopher, who happens to be Hassan al-Banna's grandson, Oxford professor Tariq Ramadan--a figure widely celebrated in the West as a "moderate" despite his troubling ties to the Islamist movement. Looking closely into what Ramadan has actually written and said, Berman contrasts the reality of Ramadan with his image in the press.In doing so, THE FLIGHT OF THE INTELLECTUALS sheds light on a number of modern issues--on the massively reinvigorated anti-Semitism of our own time, on a newly fashionable turn against women's rights, and on the difficulties we have in discussing terrorism--and presents a stunning commentary about the modern media's peculiar inability to detect and analyze some of the most dangerous ideas in contemporary society.
