Beyond the killing fields and the temples of Angkor is Cambodia: a country with a genocidal past and a wide, open smile. A frontier land where anything is possible - at least for the tourists.
In Holiday in Cambodia Laura Jean McKay explores the electric zone where local and foreign lives meet. Three backpackers board a train, ignoring the danger signs - and find themselves in the hands of the Khmer Rouge. Elderly sisters are visited by their vampire niece from Australia and set out to cure her. A singer creates a sensation in swinging 1969, on the eve of an American bombing campaign. These are bold and haunting stories by a remarkable new talent. 'Each of these stories is like catching a snippet of a conversation or looking into a lit window in a dark night, and loitering longer than you should to hear and see what characters inadvertently reveal about themselves. Holiday in Cambodia shows the ugly side of post-colonial tourism, as well as moments of great pathos and dignity, in a compelling and empathetic voice.'-Alice Pung 'Polished, Hemingwayesque snapshots, vivid and atmospheric' - Steven Carroll About the author: Laura Jean McKay is the author of Holiday in Cambodia shortlisted for the NSW Premier’s Literary Award 2014, the Queensland Literary Award 2014 and The Asher Award 2015 for women writing on an anti-war theme.

Captive du viking, de Michelle Styles 793 après J.-C., Scandinavie. Plutôt mourir que se soumettre à l’emprise de Haakon Haroldson, le chef arrogant des barbares qui ont saccagé son existence ! Si Annis a dû renoncer à sa liberté lorsque Haakon a fait d’elle sa prisonnière, elle n’ira pas jusqu’à lui abandonner sa dignité : jamais elle ne sera son esclave ! Mais alors que, dans un élan de désespoir, elle envisage une impossible tentative d’évasion, le ténébreux Viking lui propose un marché qu’elle n’attendait pas : si elle accepte de devenir sa maîtresse, il l’affranchira de sa condition de captive pour l’élever au rang de concubine. Une offre scandaleuse… qui laisse Annis face à son destin. L’épouse insoumise, Juliet Landon Angleterre, 1220. Lorsque Oriane est accusée par son cousin d’usurpation d’héritage, elle se réfugie chez une riche châtelaine, sans se douter que celle-ci nourrit le dessein de la donner en mariage à son fils chevalier. Un projet fort audacieux, car entre la fière demoiselle et le superbe conquérant, la joute s’annonce farouche !
