Book excerpt: Set during Burma's military dictatorship of the mid—1990s, Karen Connelly’s exquisitely written and harshly realistic debut novel is a hymn to human resilience and love. In the sealed-off world of a vast Burmese prison known as the cage, Teza languishes in solitary confinement seven years into a twenty-year sentence. Arrested in 1988 for his involvement in mass protests, he is the nation’s most celebrated songwriter whose resonant words and powerful voice pose an ongoing threat to the state. Forced to catch lizards to supplement his meager rations, Teza finds emotional and spiritual sustenance through memories and Buddhist meditation. The tiniest creatures and things–a burrowing ant, a copper-coloured spider, a fragment of newspaper within a cheroot filter–help to connect him to life beyond the prison walls. Even in isolation, Teza has a profound influence on the people around him. His integrity and humour inspire Chit Naing, the senior jailer, to find the courage to follow his conscience despite the serious risks involved, while Teza’s very existence challenges the brutal authority of the junior jailer, perversely nicknamed Handsome. Sein Yun, a gem smuggler and prison fixer, is his most steady human contact, who finds delight in taking advantage of Teza by cleverly tempting him into Handsome's web with the most dangerous contraband of all: pen and paper. Lastly, there's Little Brother, an orphan raised in the jail, imprisoned by his own deprivation. Making his home in a tiny, corrugated-metal shack, Little Brother stays alive by killing rats and selling them to the inmates. As the political prisoner and the young boy forge a cautious friendship, we learn that both are prisoners of different orders; only one of them dreams of escape and only one of them achieves it. Barely able to speak, losing the battle of the flesh but winning the battle of the spirit, Teza knows he has the power to transfigure one small life, and to send a message of hope and resistance out of the cage. Shortlisted for both the Kiriyama Prize for Fiction and the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, The Lizard Cage has received rave reviews nationally and internationally.

Book excerpt: “Lord let your love pour through me.” It was a prayer that Maddy had prayed many times over the past years, but it still brought tears to her eyes as she thought of the magnitude of what she asked. As a single mother, Maddy Walker’s life has been anything but easy, yet despite her pain and loss, she has committed her life to loving and serving others. Throughout the story, Maddy’s faith is stretched as God teaches her how to love, enabling her to touch the lives of many people in her community. When Maddy discovers that she is facing some serious health issues, she is tempted to withdraw, uncertain she has anything left to give. Her only prayer is to live long enough to see her daughter married and to know that Dani will be taken care of. But God is not finished with Maddy. When Isobelle Davis moves to town, God prompts Maddy to befriend her. Thrown into the midst of unwelcome change, Isobelle is struggling with feelings of anger and discontentment. Yet God uses what Isobelle views as a negative circumstance to provide an answer to Maddy’s prayer. In the process, Isobelle’s attitude is transformed and she gains new perspective as she is able to see how God’s hand was orchestrating it all.
