Author:

Greg Baxter

Synopsis:

An American expat in London receives a piece of news that is nearly incomprehensible: the body of his sister Miriam has been found in her Berlin apartment, dead from starvation. Three weeks later, the man, his elderly father, and an American consular official find themselves in the fogbound Munich Airport, where Miriam's coffin is to be loaded onto a commercial jet. Slowly, the trio's stories of those weeks unfold: time spent waiting for Miriam's body to be released, sifting through her possessions, puzzling over the mystery of her awful death - and trying to comprehend and share in her suffering, her yearning, and her grace.

Young Mr. Verdant Green has tallied up eighteen years of unobjectionable existence at home with his sisters, comfortably insulated from the horrors of public school and the tyranny of sporting activities.

Author:

Cuthbert Bede

Synopsis:

Having emerged from his baptism of fire as an Oxford Freshman, Mr. Verdant Green returns to the University, (endearingly) optimistic, (somewhat) experienced, and (very slightly) less credulous. Gleefully ready to hoax the new student blood in his turn, he fancies himself now a man of the world, wise in the ways of college life. Yet, despite his status as a veteran of one term, our hero still finds himself no less vulnerable to fetching up in scrapes - occasioned by overambitious horses, oversized cigars, and pugilistic conflicts between Town and Gown...
