Somersault

by Kenzaburo Oe, Somersault Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Somersault books, The first new novel Oe has published since winning the Nobel Prize, Somersault is a magnificent story of the charisma of leaders, the danger of zealotry, and the mystery of faith. A decade before the story opens, two men referred to as the Patron and Guide of mankind were leaders of an influential religious movement. When a radical faction of their followers threatened to unleash an apocalypse, they recanted all of their teachings and abandoned their followers. Now, after ten years of silence, Patron and Guide begin contacting their old followers and reaching out to the public, assisted by a small group of young people who have come to them in recent months. Just as they are beginning this renewed push, the radical faction kidnaps Guide, holding him captive until his health gives out. Patron and a small core of the faithful, including a painter named Kizu who may become the new Guide, move to the mountains to establish the church’s new base, followed by two groups from Patron’s old church: the devout Quiet Women, and the Technicians, who have ties to the old radical faction. The Baby Fireflies, young men from a nearby village, attempt to influence the church with local traditions and military discipline. As planning proceeds for the summer conference that will bring together the faithful and launch the new church in the eyes of the world, the conflicting agendas of these factions threaten to make a mockery of the church’s unity—or something far more dangerous.

He forgets persons and their names. People call him ‘Mr. Somersault,’ as the sound of ‘samarsath’ quite matches with the noun ‘somersault,’ which means ‘turtling down up like a boat.’ He finds a job as a manager at Delhi Paradise, a famous hotel in Delhi, which belongs to his father late Mr. Hemanth Seth’s friend Mr. Adithya Goel. Five important guests, among others, stay at the hotel. Their lives are in danger, as they have some conflicts with others. One day, Mr. Sameer is at the reception, as the receptionist has gone out for some time. Seven different visitors come to see some guests staying in the hotel. On that day, two guests are killed. Then the real troubles for Mr. Somersault begin, as the police suspect him to be behind the crimes or that he did something to upset the act. What does he do? Do the police leave him? Do the police catch the real killers?

Somersault

by Nancy Anne Miller, Somersault Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Somersault books, With visual imagery that matches the vivid subject matter of her island home, Nancy Anne Miller writes about a colonial childhood within the echoes of empire, the shadow of slavery and the complexity of island life which tourism has glossed over. She recounts the effect of the ocean on identity, and the vulnerability of an island almost seven hundred miles at sea. Now residing in the United States, she compares the two cultures through an immigrant's experience and writes back to her home with the pathos of loss and with the buoyancy of gratitude.
