76 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 15 languages and held by 2,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fault Lines begins with Sol, a gifted, terrifying child whose mother believes he is destined for greatness partly because he has a birthmark like his dad, his grandmother, and his great-grandmother. When Sol's family makes an unexpected trip to Germany, secrets begin to emerge about their history during World War II. It seems birthmarks are not all that's been passed down through the bloodlines. Closely observed, lyrically told, and epic in scope, Fault Lines is a touching, fearless, and unusual novel about four generations of children and their parents. The story moves from the West Coast of the United States to the East, from Haifa to Toronto to Munich, as secrets unwind back through time until a devastating truth about the family's origins is reached

"After a troubled childhood and two failed marriages, Rena Greenblatt has achieved success as a photographer.

At the same time, she finds herself traveling into dark and passionate memories that will lead to disturbing revelations."--P. [4] of cover

Black dance by Nancy Huston ( Book )
11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and French and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Screenwriter Milo Noirlac is dying. As he lies in the dark of his hospital bed, voices from Milo's past and present--real and imagined--swirl about his head, each taking on the rhythm of his favorite Brazilian fight-dance, the capoiera. Seated next to him, Milo's partner, bumptious director Paul Schwartz, coaxes Milo through his life story, from the abuse he suffered as a foster child to his lost heritage--his beloved grandfather's priceless library. As Milo narrates, his story becomes the pair's final screenplay, the movie that will be their masterpiece. With Milo's imagination in full flight, several generations of Noirlac ancestors--voices in French and English, German and Dutch, Cree and Gaelic--come to life. There's Neil Kerrigan, his Irish grandfather, classmate of 'Jimmy' Joyce, would-be poet and aspiring activist in the fight against British occupation, crushed by his exile in Quebec; Awinita, Milo's biological mother, an Indian teen prostitute; Eugénio, a street child whom Milo finds and fosters; and Marie-Thérèse, Milo's tough-as-nails aunt. As each voice cascades through Milo's memory, an important piece of family, and world, history is formed."--
