Uprooted


NEBULA AWARD WINNER • HUGO AWARD FINALIST • “If you want a fantasy with strong characters and brilliantly original variations on ancient stories, try Uprooted!”—Rick Riordan “Breathtaking . . . a tale that is both elegantly grand and earthily humble, familiar as a Grimm fairy tale yet fresh, original, and totally irresistible.”—Publishers Weekly(starred review) NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • BuzzFeed • Tordotcom • BookPage • Library Journal • Publishers Weekly Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows—everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose. Praise for Uprooted “Uprooted has leapt forward to claim the title of Best Book I’ve Read Yet This Year. . . . Moving, heartbreaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I’ve been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won’t want to put it down.”—NPR

Transitory Gardens Uprooted Lives


Jimmy's garden on the Lower East Side of Manhattan--an assortment of stones and garbage bags, five tires, a chair, a skid, a refrigerator shelf, some ailanthus trees and goldfish, a wooden fence, and a pond with water carried by hand from a nearby fire hydrant--was recently bulldozed by the city. Jimmy then disappeared. Anna's garden is surrounded by a tall chainlink fence and filled with a menagerie of dolls and stuffed animals. The animals are whole, the dolls are maimed. Anna is a recluse who speaks to no one. The neighbors say she was in a concentration camp as a child. Gardens have always been associated with wealth and leisure, viewed as an addition to home. In this remarkable book a landscape architect and a photographer show us, in word and pictures, gardens built by homeless or impoverished New York City inhabitants. Like traditional gardens, these spaces are designed for pleasure, social activity, or private retreat. Unlike traditional gardens, they are connected to a more active and ephemeral use of the land. Transitory gardens speak the language of our times: here we find the reuse of nearly everything discarded, a sparing use of water and plant materials, an economical treatment of space, and a penchant for icons, toys, flags, and symbols of freedom and nationality. The gardens expand our definition of what makes a garden and what its design means for its creator. Diana Balmori's commentary and Margaret Morton's photographs combine with the garden-makers' own descriptions to encourage us to take note of gardens grown in unlikely places, on abandoned, littered lots, bounded by debris. By focusing on what homeless people make not for material comfort but from social and spiritual need, the book offers insight into both the meaning of landscape and the place of a garden in the life of an individual under duress.

Uprooted


Uprooted: The Unheard Story by Tulsa Uprooted tells the story of the Bhutanese people of Nepali origin who were evicted from their homeland, through the eyes of Goshi, a native Bhutanese woman. The story follows Goshi from her childhood in a small village in Bhutan, to her adolescence and schooling, and finally into her adulthood, all the while giving insight and understanding into the events leading up to the exile of the Bhutanese people. She tells of their endurance and resilience, challenges and hardships; of how over a 100,000 of these people were marginalized from being part of a multicultural society and forced to flee the only home they knew to live as refugees in camps in eastern Nepal for seventeen years starting late 1980s. It is the tale of youths trying to blend and fit, torn between conformity and deviance, and the adults' struggle to adjust in a different socio - cultural environment. After being resettled to various countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherland, Norway and the United Kingdom in 2008, these people were forced to overcome a host of challenges that come with settling in a completely new environment. Most importantly, this book helps in bringing out the refugees' side of the story on how a large portion of the Bhutanese population were evicted almost overnight, and what stress the people went through when displaced from the only home known to them. About the Author Born the fifth of ten children, Tulsa was raised in Dagapela of Southern Bhutan by her farmer parents. She is one among the thousands of Bhutanese of Nepali origin, who were uprooted from their home and hearth. Having fled the country in January 1992, she lived in exile in Nepal for seventeen years. She, her husband, and their two children have since resettled and have been residents of the United States of America here since September 2008. Her passion for writing, along with her specializations in Sociology and Political Science, allowed her to write this book. She hopes this book will be of special interest to not only the whole former refugee community now scattered across the world, but also to those responsible for relocation and settlement in America and other countries. Apart from her full-time job, Tulsa enjoys reading, cooking, listening to music, yoga, and occasional knitting, as well as spending time with the community elders to converse in English, the language of their new home.
