Mano a Mano is a satirical story based on historical events in Zimbabwe, when Robert Gabriel Mugabe transformed himself from the much-loved Prime Minister to a controversial, polarizing figure. Millions of people have left Zimbabwe due to horrific economic times and widespread starvation. The villagers of Maze Wibb who remain behind have no choice but to rely on themselves in their fight for real independence-and soon discover that a good beginning does not guarantee a happy ending. Through sweat and blood, they build a school, hoping to secure a bright future for their children, but it soon becomes clear that the headmaster has other ideas. The book is divided into two parts: the first is a fictionalized account of true events, encompassing comprehensive descriptions of the narrator's life, his country, and his people; The second part weaves a variety of stories into one, creating a dialogue that provides an introspective look into the ways and customs of a culture across the world. This insightful novel is not just about an African country but about the strong and beautiful people who live within its borders and struggle to survive despite the appalling and dangerous conditions that surround them each day.

From one of the most consistently astute and engaging social commentators of our day comes another look at the tough and tender women of New York City--this time, through the lens of where they live. One Fifth Avenue, the Art Deco beauty towering over one of Manhattan's oldest and most historically hip neighborhoods, is a one-of-a-kind address, the sort of building you have to earn your way into--one way or another. For the women in Candace Bushnell's new novel, One Fifth Avenue, this edifice is essential to the lives they've carefully established--or hope to establish. From the hedge fund king's wife to the aging gossip columnist to the free-spirited actress (a recent refugee from L.A.), each person's game plan for a rich life comes together under the soaring roof of this landmark building. Acutely observed and mercilessly witty, One Fifth Avenue is a modern-day story of old and new money, that same combustible mix that Edith Wharton mastered in her novels about New York's Gilded Age and F. Scott Fitzgerald illuminated in his Jazz Age tales. Many decades later, Bushnell's New Yorkers suffer the same passions as those fictional Manhattanites from eras past: They thirst for power, for social prominence, and for marriages that are successful--at least to the public eye. But Bushnell is an original, and One Fifth Avenue is so fresh that it reads as if sexual politics, real estate theft, and fortunes lost in a day have never happened before. From Sex and the City through four successive novels, Bushnell has revealed a gift for tapping into the zeitgeist of any New York minute and, as one critic put it, staying uncannily "just the slightest bit ahead of the curve." And with each book, she has deepened her range, but with a light touch that makes her complex literary accomplishments look easy. Her stories progress so nimbly and ring so true that it can seem as if anyone might write them--when, in fact, no one writes novels quite like Candace Bushnell. Fortunately for us, with One Fifth Avenue, she has done it again.
