The Inheritors

'The Inheritors' is a brilliant imaginative recreation of the lost world of the Neanderthals, and of the Neanderthals' successors - the first humans.

The Inheritors

'An astonishing and original tour de force ... Golding is a genius.' Daily Telegraph When the spring came the people - what was left of them - moved back by the old paths from the sea. But this year strange things were happening, terrifying things that had never happened before. Inexplicable sounds and smells; new, unimaginable creatures half glimpsed through the leaves. What the people didn't, and perhaps never would, know, was that the day of their people was already over. From the author of Lord of the Flies, The Inheritors is a startling recreation of the lost world of the Neanderthals, and a frightening vision of the beginnings of a new age.

In her trademark razor-sharp style, Hannelore Cayre again delivers the sardonic humour and devilish creativity that made The Godmother an international bestseller. Hannelore Cayre is a French writer, director and criminal lawyer.

The Inheritors

An unforgettable new novel by the award-winning author of the international French bestseller The Godmother. She had been dead now for four days and I had become rich. Unimaginably rich. Blanche de Rigny has always considered herself the black sheep of the family. And a black sheep on crutches at that. But it turns out her family tree has branches she didn’t even know existed. And many of them are rotten to the core. As Blanche learns more about the legacy left by her wealthy Parisian ancestors, she decides a little family tree pruning might be in order. But great wealth also brings great responsibility – a form of richesse oblige, perhaps – and Blanche has a plan to use her inheritance to cure the world of its ills. Spanning two centuries, from Paris on the eve of the Franco-Prussian War to the modern day, this unforgettable family saga lays bare the persistent and poisonous injustice of inequality. In her trademark razor-sharp style, Hannelore Cayre again delivers the sardonic humour and devilish creativity that made The Godmother an international bestseller. Hannelore Cayre is a French writer, director and criminal lawyer. Her most recent work, The Godmother, won the European Crime Fiction Prize, the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière and the Crime Writers’ Association Crime in Translation Dagger award. The Godmother was also featured on The New York Times’ ‘100 Notable Books of 2019’ list and has been made into a major film starring Isabelle Huppert. ‘A tightly plotted and darkly funny tale of trade in human bodies and souls.’ — Kerryn Goldsworthy, The Age ‘The darkly gripping story of a tainted family legacy’ — Readings ‘Richesse Oblige [The Inheritors] has everything we love about [Hannelore Cayre]; damaged but memorable characters, sharp language, ferocious humour, an undercurrent of political rage, a punchy narrative and lashings of subversion.’ —Lire literary magazine

Lohia & Co—one of India’s largest commodity traders, the country’s biggest jute supplier, owner of tea estates, as well as cement, steel, shipping and motor cycle firms, and its own insurance arm—is in trouble. Now a strike, led by ageing Marxist trade union leader Hirenmoy Chakroborty, is destabilizing its Calcutta headquarters—and Aruna the bitter, power-hungry sister of Hari Lohia, the head of the dynasty, is using the opportunity to launch a covert takeover of the business with the help of her two ambitious sons. But Hari Lohia, who single-handedly built up Lohia & Co from a tiny jute trader in the crowded alleys of Barabazar to a sprawling global conglomerate, is not willing to let go of his empire so easily. He comes from a family of survivors, ancestors who moved across the country from Rajasthan with nothing and built their fortunes from scratch. And he discovers unlikely allies in this last great battle he has to fight—Anjali, his tough, cynical sister, a fiery opponent of Aruna’s; and Shivani, his beautiful, rebellious daughter who has always been too busy having love affairs to pay attention to her father’s business. Who will lose? Who will win? And most importantly—will the house of Lohia fall like a pack of cards? Moving from the crumbling offices of Calcutta to hedge funds in Hong Kong, from the Mumbai stock market to nineteenth century Rajasthan, and boasting an enormous cast of characters, The Inheritors is quite simply sensational.

The Rockefeller and Ford inheritors have done an impressive amount of good as inheritors, as we shall see, but the Dodges, the later Astors, the tobacco heirs, and the modern Vanderbilts are much more fun to read about.

Gods of the Inferno  The Inheritors 2

In the tradition of Jean Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear, Fletcher Anthony brings us a magical world inhabited by the spirits. The world of ancient Indonesia, and modern-day Gondwanaland: Australia. Thousands of years ago, the People lived and worshipped their gods in the rainforests of the Indonesian archipelago. Then the Newcomers began to come from the north and the People were forced to move south and relocate again and again. They must trust those of their kind with whom they used to do battle; they must learn how to cross a river; they must forget their old ways and forge new ideas. Fern is their shaman, and above all her spirit must be forged anew or she and her people will die — not from hunger or starvation or war, but from the loss of their gods and the dying of their spirit, the very heart of their world. And in contemporary Australia, another Fern must choose between the new world and the old, and the visions of an ancient shaman may guide her path in the present.

The Inheritors

This novel, one of two collaborations between Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford, is one of the earliest to be concerned with modern, mechanical culture, and as such foreshadowed other writers such as George Orwell and Aldous Huxley. Symbolising the collapse of old treasured political values at the turn of the century and underlining the urgency of renovation, the novel involves the unrequited love for a young women of Arthur Granger, an aristocratic and unsuccessful novelist. Granger betrays the ideals on which he prides himself for this woman, a nameless, ethereal and goddess-like agent from a strange world. The collaboration between Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford influenced their own independent work and, in the words of Ezra Pound, ‘What Flaubert had done to change French prose, Conrad and Ford did to transform English prose.’

Inheritors

Spanning more than 150 years, and set in multiple locations in colonial and postcolonial Asia and the United States, these interconnected stories contest assumptions and illuminate the complicated ways we experience, interpret, and pass on our personal and shared histories. A retired doctor is forced to confront the horrific moral consequences of his wartime actions. An elderly woman subjects herself to an interview, gradually revealing a fifty-year old murder and its shattering aftermath. And in the last days of a doomed war, a prodigal son who enlisted against his parents' wishes survives the American invasion of his island outpost, only to be asked for a sacrifice more daunting than any he imagined. Serizawa's characters walk the line between the devastating realities of war and the banal needs of everyday life as they struggle to reconcile their experiences with the changing world.
