Murray Bail

Murray Bail is best known for his internationally best-selling novel Eucalyptus, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year and winner of the 1999 Miles Franklin Award. The New York Times Book Review wrote that Bail's writing "exhibit(s) a surfeit of imagination, skill and style... (they contain) stories within stories, of enigmatic characters and sly questions with many possible answers." In The Voyage, Piano manufacturer and salesman Frank Delage travels to Vienna from Sydney, hoping to introduce a new design to replace the respected old pianos of Europe. He walks the great musical city, offering an impassioned defense of his piano's technical superiority to any who will hear it. When his ambitions are ignored by the city's staid musical elite, Delage's finds his situation suddenly transformed by a chance meeting with Amalia von Schalla, an elegant grande dame of Viennese society. Now sailing home to Australia aboard the container ship Romance with his new bride, Amalia's daughter Elisabeth von Schalla, Delage and his story begin to come to light in a hypnotic sequence of memories, voices, and snatches of conversations. Bail's prose sidewinds like a slipstream as Delage's story moves between the glittering society of the von Schalla's Vienna and the rough landscape of Australia. The Voyage is delightfully Joycean--conveying a sensuous physicality and the immediacy emotion, as well as revealing a great basin of interior life. The Voyage was a finalist for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards Christina Stead Prize for Fiction, WA Premier's Book Awards, and the Queensland Literary Awards.

Murray Bail

The Voyage is a masterly novel by a great writer at the peak of his powers. Frank Delage, piano manufacturer from Sydney, travels to Vienna, a city immersed in music, to present the Delage concert grand. He hopes to impress with its technical precision, its improvement on the old pianos of Europe. How could he not know his piano is all wrong for Vienna? Perhaps he should have tried Berlin. But a chance meeting with Amalia von Schalla brings new possibilities for Delage - connections, her daughter Elisabeth, and an avant garde composer. Now travelling home, on a container ship, with Elisabeth, the real story is about to begin. Murray Bail was born in Adelaide in 1941. He has won numerous awards, including the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Miles Franklin Literary Award for Eucalyptus. His most recent novel, The Pages, was published in 2008 to great acclaim. 'There's a lightness to Bail's writing - a gentle stealth in its revelations - that slowly but surely brings the reader alive...One of Australia's most original and imaginative writers.' Canberra Times 'The Voyage is oblique, idiosyncratic and original. To read it is to breathe the rarefied air of an artistic consciousness, nostalgic for literary modernism. Bail deploys the structural integrity of the journey, such as the single day in Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway and James Joyce's Ulysses, to allow the disordered encroachment of the past on the present, and to permit a slippery, subjective treatment of time. This is a novel that demands your full attention, discoursing in an unbuttoned, Joycean fashion, approaching a sort of textual jouissance.' Weekend Australian '[The Voyage] is a lustrous piece of fiction, consistently surprising and illuminating, full of mirrors and illusions, but with the abiding face of real feeling and deep truth. We won't see a finer piece of fiction in the longest while.' Age 'A fine achievement.' Australian Book Review 'Here sits yet another elegant and most engaging piece of work from the ordered imagination of Murray Bail...a graceful and unfenced read.' Courier Mail/Daily Telegraph 'Murray Bail's masterful novel is essentially a piece of music; and like all good music, although we know the plot from the start, it never fails to surprise us...Brilliant.' West Australian 'This is an astonishing, defiant little book. Though concise in scale, it is vastly thought-provoking...If ever a novel could be said to exceed the sum of its many sensations, this masterful concoction engages, excites and perturbs with singular virtuosity.' Irish Times 'A new novel release from Murray Bail is always worthy of rejoice. Few writers anywhere in the world can match the esteemed Australian for stylistic daring.' Irish Examiner '[an] astonishingly brilliant, defiant and utterly singular novel of intelligence, narrative shifts and frustrated desire, which makes more than a few nods to Voltaire's Candide.' Eileen Battersby's book of the year, Irish Times

Veronica Salinas

In this delightful picture book, a small duck finds itself in a place full of unusual creatures who speak an unfamiliar language. Eventually, it meets an animal whose big feet are a bit like its own. And with a friend by its side, the small duck soon can feel at home. First published in Norway in 2012, this deceptively simple book about adapting to new situations will appeal to children who are just starting school or daycare, children who are about to move to a new home, or children who are learning a new language. The illustrations are gently humorous, while the simple text affirms the importance of knowing who you are and being open to change. Without making unrealistic promises, this story reassures children that, with time, they can adapt to any new environment and make new friends to explore it with. And if, as happens to the little duck in this story, those new friends have to leave, the child, like the little duck, will be able to greet the next wave of newcomers with compassion and generosity.

Rodney Hui,George Simpson

This is a story that needs to be told and I thank the Lord that Rodney Hui who lives on Logo Hope and who has been one of the main leaders of O.M. in Asia has written it, together with George Simpson. It was on the night of 10 Sept 2001 while Logos II was in London that we launched the next ship project at the Emmanuel Centre. I was sailing out of London the next day, the 11th, when that fateful event took place in New York City. Only eternity will tell the full story of the spiritual battles that were fought and won to bring into being this much bigger, amazing ship that we have seen God using since we took delivery in 2004. I hope you will read this book with a spirit of expectation and also a willingness to learn something about God and the way He works. The table of contents is in front of me and part of the manuscript and I believe those who will take the time to read this book are going to be informed, challenged and blessed. Thousands of people pray for this ministry and support it including many former and present ship ministry people. I hope some read what I am writing here as on behalf of our entire global movement. I want to thank every one of them. You can be sure I will be giving some of you a copy of this unique book. Thank you Rodney and George. Dr. George Verwer Founder, Operation Mobilisation

Derrick E. Sumral

The Voyage of Cultivation presents a collection of Derrick Sumral’s writings, dating as far back as a poetry assignment in the sixth grade. He took his love for words and for life and expressed it through poetry. Derrick’s writing became the stage upon which his mind was free to express itself without the fear of being ridiculed or misunderstood. Wearing his heart in his pen, Derrick openly expresses his emotions and feelings regarding a wide variety of everyday experiences as they affect him. With vivid descriptions, colorful imagery, and witty wordplay, he matures and cultivates his true feelings as he faces life’s challenges. He embraces his accomplishments such as graduations and being a loving father, and confronts the challenges presented by divorce, abortion, adultery, abandonment, and loneliness. The Voyage of Cultivation explores a young man’s life, taking him on an endless journey of emotional reevaluation. Love? Does love make beauty appear better than it seems? Or does love bring you more pleasure from your reality than it does from your dreams? Honestly, there is no true explanation of love, but at any given moment that I hear the word, you’re the only person that I am thinking of.

Charles Darwin

The Voyage of the Beagle is a title commonly given to the book written by Charles Darwin and published in 1839 as his Journal and Remarks, bringing him considerable fame and respect. The title refers to the second survey expedition of the ship HMS Beagle, which set sail from Plymouth Sound on 27 December 1831 under the command of Captain Robert FitzRoy, R.N.. While the expedition was originally planned to last two years, it lasted almost five-the Beagle did not return until 2 October 1836. Darwin spent most of this time exploring on land (three years and three months on land; 18 months at sea). The book, also known as Darwin's Journal of Researches, is a vivid and exciting travel memoir as well as a detailed scientific field journal covering biology, geology, and anthropology that demonstrates Darwin's keen powers of observation, written at a time when Western Europeans were exploring and charting the whole world.
