Two Caravans

Two Caravans


A field of strawberries in Kent.

.And sitting in it two caravans - one for the men and one for the women.

The residents are from all over: miner\'s son Andriy is from the old Ukraine, while sexy young Irina is from the new: they eye each other warily. There are the Poles Tomasz and Yola, two Chinese girls and Emanuel from Malawi.

They\'re all here to pick strawberries in England\'s green and pleasant land. But these days England\'s not so pleasant for immigrants.

Not with Russian gangster-wannabes like Vulk, who\'s taken a shine to Irina and thinks kidnapping is a wooing strategy. And so Andriy - who really doesn\'t fancy Irina, honest - must set off in search of that girl he\'s not in love with.

The Islamist

The Islamist


When I was sixteen I became an Islamic fundamentalist. Five years later, after much emotional turmoil, I rejected fundamentalist teachings and returned to normal life and my family.

I tried to put my experiences behind me, but as the events of 7/7 unfolded it became clear to me that Islamist groups pose a threat to this country that we — Muslims and non-Muslims alike — do not yet understand. Why are young British Muslims becoming extremists? What are the risks of another home-grown terrorist attack on British soil? By describing my experiences inside these groups, the reasons I joined them and how, after leaving I recovered my faith and mind, I hope to explain the appeal of extremist thought, how fanatics penetrate Muslim communities and the truth behind their agenda of subverting the.

The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye


The Catcher in Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it\'s relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen-year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school.

Throughout, Holden dissects the \'phony\' aspects of society, and the \'phonies\' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection. Lazy in style, full of slang and swear words, it\'s a novel whose interest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues (in conventional terms, there is hardly any plot at all).

Salinger\'s style creates an effect of conversation, it is as though Holden is speaking to you personally, as though you too have seen through the.
