The Great American Movie Script

Roshni Rustomji-Kerns (author)

TGAMSthree copy

“Two Indians, one Native American and the other South Asian Parsi meet in the sixties in Berkeley. Spanning a period from war to war—Vietnam to Chiapas—friendships and stories intertwine with the controversies or race and history. By turns tragic and comic, heartbreak tempered by hilarity.”—Karen Tei Yamashita

Cafe Le Whore and Other Stories

Moazzam Sheikh (author)Cafe Le Whore Flyer One

Sheikh may be the Pakistani immigrant Woody Allen of our times, wringing guilt and manhood torments out of his multicultural backdrops. Sheikhs consciousness of style sometimes drives things to the point that he throws words at the page a-la Jackson Pollack – its worth it, especially as the syntax becomes more of an illustration of the kinds of challenges and barriers the characters must confront.

The Aim of Art

T. G. Colbert (Author)

How does a straight American soldier with a girl back home return from a tour of duty in Iceland with The Works of Oscar Wilde as his most cherished souvenir? The answer is a cosmopolitan tale of love, friendship, and the influence of life upon life set in pre-Stonewall World War II, transcending boundaries of gay and straight, Jew and gentile, and illustrating the Wildean dictum “to reveal art and conceal the artist is art’s aim.”

The Circle of Illusion

Poems by Gurcharan Rampuri (Author)

“There is a powerful metaphysical feel to Gurcharan Rampuri’s poetry. The insights he has distilled from his life both in the Punjab and Vancouver emerge in sharp lyrical form, bittersweet musings on life and death, desire and family, community and how it tears apart, the everyday and the quicksilver horizon of what lies beyond …” Meena Alexander, author of Poetics of Dislocation and Quickly Changing River

To Be With Her

Syed Afzal Haider (Author)

“With the intellect and comic instinct of Rushdie, the obsessiveness of Percy, and the gritty realism of Bukowski, Syed Afzal Haider has created Ramzan Malik, seeker and romantic, moviegoer and Muslim, who breaks from his traditional Pakistani family to be with the American woman of his choice.” Elizabeth McKenzie, author of MacGregor Tells the World
