Summary

A potent combination of political, metaphorical, and mythical storytelling” from the prizewinning author of The Freedom Artist (The Scotsman).“Who can be certain where the end begins?” said Dad, shortly before he was arrested for the murder of the carpenter . . .This novel, the conclusion to the trilogy that began with the Man Booker Prize winner The Famished Road, follows the spirit-child Azaro, who travels between the worlds of the living and the dead. Set against the backdrop of a Nigerian village in turmoil, it is a novel about the multiple forms that wealth and power can take, the challenges of the physical world, and the wonders of the mystical world, by an author who has earned numerous literary honors and whose “writing is hailed for its intelligence, tenderness, poeticism and luminosity” (Financial Times). “Ben Okri is that rare thing, a literary and social visionary, a writer for whom all three—literature, culture, and vision—are profoundly interwoven.” —Ali Smith, author of Autumn

    Our next task is to study coming-to-be and passing-away. We are to distinguish the causes, and to state the definitions, of these processes considered in general-as changes predicable uniformly of all the things that come-to-be and pass-away by nature. Further, we are to study growth and 'alteration'. We must inquire what each of them is; and whether 'alteration' is to be identified with coming-to-be, or whether to these different names there correspond two separate processes with distinct natures.

    A financial thriller based on the Panic of 1907 by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Jungle In 1907 the stock market crashed as a result of the manipulations of a group of powerful, wealthy, and unscrupulous men. The repercussions were felt across the nation, taking a devastating toll on thousands of small investors and hardworking Americans. The Moneychangers, written a century before the term “too big to fail” became part of the national lexicon, dramatizes the secret dealings of the one-percenters who brought the national economy to the brink of collapse.   Lawyer Allan Montague is at home among New York City’s wealthiest and most influential citizens. His position provides him with an insider’s perspective on the motivations of the financial elite—and what he sees isn’t always pretty. Now, a small group of very rich men intend to take down a rival, even if it means wiping out the livelihoods and savings of thousands and thousands of unsuspecting citizens in the process. Powerless to stop the plot, all Montague can do is try to save the woman he loves from a tragic collision of jealousy, avarice, and lust.   This ebook has been authorized by the estate of Upton Sinclair.
