The Lost Oasis by Saul Kelly Summary

The Lost Oasis tells the true story behind The English Patient. An extraordinary episode in World War II, it describes the Zerzura Club, a group of desert explorers and adventurers who indulged in desert travel by early-model-motor cars and airplanes, and who searched for lost desert oases and ancient cities of vanished civilizations. In reality, they were mapping the desert for military reasons and espionage. The club's members came from countries that soon would be enemies: England and the Allied Forces v. Italy and Germany. When war erupted in 1939, Ralph Bagnold founded the British Long Range Desert Group to spy on and disrupt Rommel's advance on Cairo, while a fellow club member, Hungarian Count Almasy, succeeded in placing German spies there. Ultimately, the British prevailed. Saul Kelly's riveting history draws on interviews with survivors and previously unknown documentary material in England, Italy, Germany, Hungary, and Egypt. His book reads like a thriller - with one key difference: it's all true.

Michael Ondaatje by Douglas Barbour Summary

Today, as his richly metaphorical texts enjoy international renown, Ondaatje's fame is especially fascinating, for he has neither followed trends nor played to any crowd, instead fulfilling his wish to "start each new book with a new vocabulary." Unlike fellow writers Robert Kroetsch and George Bowering, Ondaatje dislikes discussing theory - it takes an appreciation as sharp and probing as Douglas Barbour's to enlighten us to the thoughts, intentions, and influences that have shaped Ondaatje's work, his consistent movement into new territory, and his masterful traversal through the modes of late modernism, postmodernism, and postcolonialism. Barbour offers luminous readings of each of Ondaatje's books up to The English Patient (1992), a novel of international scope that is as much about the power of narratives as the power of passion. Barbour illuminates Ondaatje's early alignment with Wallace Stevens and Robert Lowell, as well as his later development in the Pound tradition.

Diaspora and Exile by Lucía Mora González,Bernhard Dietz Guerrero,Asunción Sánchez Villalón Summary

The different contributions of this body of work attemp to demonstrate that the concept of diaspora (exile) has acquired a renewed currency among scholars by examining that to be in exile, at least in some way, is to live a disjoint life. Thus, to live in exileor diaspora implies to take up the difficult task of kee-ping one`s dignity and one ́s story, despite the on slaught of a colonial power. The relationship with a past, often through stories of the mother/land or through remembrance and (re)creation, becomes a means of survival. Futhermore, the sense (or absence) of community, and the positioning in language generate an ever more complex and dialogic definition of Canadian and American nationalities and identities.
