ACKROYD, PETER
The Fall of Troy
London, Chatto & Windus. 2006, 1st UK Edition. (ISBN: 0701179112) Hard Cover. "I cannot wait to bring you to the plain of Troy. To show you the place where Hector and Achilles fought. To show you the palace of Priam. And the walls where the Trojan women watched their warriors in battle with the invader. It will stir your blood, Sophia. " Sophia Chrysanthis is in her twenties when the celebrated German archaeologist Herr Obermann seeks her out; comes wooing: he wants a Greek bride who knows her Homer. Sophia passes his test, and soon she is tying canvas sacking to her legs, so that she can kneel on the hard ground in the trench, removing the earth methodically, identifying salient points, lifting out amphorae and bronze vessels without damaging them. "Archaeology is not a science, " Obermann says. "It is an art. " Obermann is very good at the art of archaeology-perhaps too good. Obsessive and intuitive, he is a romantic visionary". New/New.

APOSTOLIDES, MARIANNE
Swim: A Novel
Toronto, BookThug. 2009, 1st Can Ed. (ISBN: 1897388381) Soft Cover. Attuned to a body in motion, Swim pulls the reader beneath the logic of prose, into the eroticism of language itself. The arcing rhythm of a body breathing, a woman marking her birth as she swims in a pool sustains the unique and hypnotic language that becomes the medium through which this story moves. Swim entwines the present with those past actions and consequences that have brought Kat to the Greek mountain village where her father was born. She swims laps while her fourteen-year-old daughter reclines on a chaise lounge, poolside, reading a book. Without ever leaving the pool we enter discrete scenes with Kats parents, daughter, husband and lover. On entering each point in this history, Kat reveals an undertow of sound, rhythm and words in their rippling meanings. Each new lap moves Kat closer to her impending decision: whether she will leave her husband. But the deeper tension within this innovative novel derives from the writing itself -- its vital urgency that extends the possibilities of narrative beyond the fixed and into the fluid. New Book from Publisher. Signed by Author.
