Beautifully written and deeply compassionate, Rough Music is a novel of one family at two defining points in time. Seamlessly alternating between the present day and a summer thirty years past, its twin stories unfold at a cottage along the eastern coast of England. Will Pagett receives an unexpected gift on his fortieth birthday, two weeks at a perfect beach house in Cornwall. Seeking some distance from the married man with whom he's having an affair, he invites his aging mother and father to share his holiday, knowing the sun and sea will be a welcome change for. But the cottage and the stretch of sand before it seem somehow familiar and memories of a summer long ago begin to surface. Thirty-two years earlier. A young married couple and their eight year-old son begin two idyllic weeks at a beach house in Cornwall. But the sudden arrival of unknown American relatives has devastating consequences, turning what was to be a moment of reconciliation into an act of betrayal that will cast a lengthy shadow. As Patrick Gale masterfully unspools these parallel stories, we see their subtle and surprising reflections in each other and discover how the forgotten dramas of childhood are reenacted throughout our lives. Deftly navigating the terrain between humor and tragedy, Patrick Gale has written an unforgettable novel about the lies that adults tell and the small acts of treason that children can commit. Rough Music gracefully illuminates the merciful tricks of memory and the courage with which we continue to assert our belief in love and happiness. From the Hardcover edition.

On July 7, 2005, the murderous mayhem that Blair's war has sown in Iraq came home to London in a devastating series of suicide bombings. Two weeks later, with apparent impunity, security forces shot dead a young Brazilian electrician on his way to work. Rough Music is Tariq Ali's riveting response to these events. He lays bare the vengeful platitudes of Blair's war on civil liberties, mounts a scorching attack on the cozy falsehoods of the government's "consensus" on what the threat amounts to and how to respond, and denounces the corruption of the political-media bubble which allows it to go unchallenged. Finally, invoking the perseverance and integrity of the great dissenters of the past, he calls for political resistance, within parliament and without.

Sourcing folk songs, ballads, and medieval carols, the poems in this collection explore the points where poetry and music meet and result in a crude dissonance derived from Anglo-Saxon and Romanian traditions. Exploring a range of personal material informed by the deep, medieval iconography of common prayer, by the diction of medieval carol as well as metaphysics, poetry, and madrigal sounds, this innovative volume touches on themes of women’s identities, grief, loss, shame, loneliness, ill health, and surviving in the aftermath of violence.

Rough Music is a selection from the nine books and poetry manuscripts that Ari Sitas has written over the past 25 years. His poems are notable for their historical-political astuteness flavored with a romantic surrealism. Sitas writes in a variety of poetic forms, from exuberant jazz-like improvisations to astringent political observations, from humorous dialogues to diary-like narratives. Though always complex, the warmth and self-interrogation of his poems ensures their wide appeal. Sitas is a distinguished and creative sociologist, a novelist, a dramatist who was co-founder of the Junction Avenue Theater Company, and a cultural activist well known for his work with trade unions and worker theater during his many years in Durban. He has collaborated with a number of artists, actors, and musicians, most recently with the Indian-South African Insurrections Ensemble, performing at the 2013 Poetry Africa Festival.
