Description:

In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Ames s life, he begins a letter to his young son, an account of himself and his forebears. Ames is the son of an Iowa preacher and the grandson of a minister who, as a young man in Maine, saw a vision and came west to Kansas to fight for abolition. Reverend Ames tells a story of the sacred bonds between fathers and sons, which are tested in his tender and strained relationship with his best friend s wayward son. Gilead is the long-hoped-for second novel by one of our finest writers, a hymn of praise and lamentation to the God-haunted existence that Reverend Ames loves passionately, and from which he will soon part."

Description:

A NOVEL THAT READERS and critics have been eagerly anticipating for over a decade, Gilead is an astonishingly imagined story of remarkable lives. John Ames is a preacher, the son of a preacher and the grandson (both maternal and paternal) of preachers. It’s 1956 in Gilead, Iowa, towards the end of the Reverend Ames’s life, and he is absorbed in recording his family’s story, a legacy for the young son he will never see grow up. Haunted by his grandfather’s presence, John tells of the rift between his grandfather and his father: the elder, an angry visionary who fought for the abolitionist cause, and his son, an ardent pacifist. He is troubled, too, by his prodigal namesake, Jack (John Ames) Boughton, his best friend’s lost son who returns to Gilead searching for forgiveness and redemption. Told in John Ames’s joyous, rambling voice that finds beauty, humour and truth in the smallest of life’s details, Gilead is a song of celebration and acceptance of the best and the worst the world has to offer. At its heart is a tale of the sacred bonds between fathers and sons, pitch-perfect in style and story, set to dazzle critics and readers alike.

Description:

Enter once more the world of Roland Deschain—and the world of the Dark Tower...now presented in a stunning graphic novel form that will unlock the doorways to terrifying secrets and bold storytelling as part of the dark fantasy masterwork and magnum opus from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King. “The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King’s iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a “gunslinger” charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world—a world that “moved on,” as they say. In this desolate reality—a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways—Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower. Now, in the graphic novel series Stephen King's The Dark Tower: Beginnings, originally published by Marvel Comics in single-issue form and creatively overseen by Stephen King himself, the full story of Roland's troubled past and coming-of-age is revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, Beginnings is an extraordinary and terrifying journey into Roland’s origins—ultimately serving as the perfect introduction for new readers to Stephen King’s modern literary classic The Dark Tower, while giving longtime fans thrilling adventures merely hinted at in his blockbuster novels. The evil deceptions woven by the merciless, mesmerizing power of the mystical seeing sphere known as “Maerlyn’s Grapefruit” warped Roland Deschain of Gilead’s sense of reality, causing him to unintentionally commit a shocking and unforgivable crime—one that may surely earn him a swift journey to the gallows. But what has happened to Roland is only a taste of the bitter fate for all of Mid-World’s noblest defenders, as the violent insanity and destructive scheming of the monstrous “Good Man” John Farson and the inhuman Marten Broadcloak finally culminate in an all-out assault on the city of Gilead itself....

Description:

Going for Balm in Gilead By: Masz M. Yebbus Samuel was born in an African village, where the ancestors used to depend on natural indicators to predict the start of seasonal rains. Lately, the indicators had become unreliable, and when the community failed to predict the onset of rains, crops failed, and the threat of famine loomed large on the horizon. Samuel was blamed because he had passed on information about the rains, which turned out to be wrong. Assisted by an enigmatic village pastor, Samuel escaped to the city before society could exact its retribution. Enticed by the prospects of better income abroad, Samuel crossed the Mediterranean Sea illegally, to settle in Gilead in Europe. Unfortunately, life in Gilead did not turn out as he had envisaged. This book chronicles Samuel’s struggle to achieve success. It tells the story of how he had to straddle two parallel worlds of existence, and the ultimate discovery that because he had become exotic in both worlds, ‘home’ was nowhere. This is Samuel’s story of how he ultimately discovers that the secret of success lay in self-reconciliation, and that at the heart of this, was the definition of ‘home.’
