    In our village alone there were three Gods, all of whom had houses; the Catholic One had the biggest, then came the Calvinist One, and then the Jewish One. Two bamboo sticks symbolise the scales on which a king weighs himself against a pigeon by progressively shedding his own flesh. Your purchase helps us remain independent and ad-free. The Continental Army was engaged in battle with the British regulars, Loyalist rangers and Iroquois Indian warriors. I boasted about it, though, and all the heder kids dared me to do it again.

    Read an Excerpt Chapter One The Menace The mountain rolls in from the west, a slow, lazy slope of vineyards that turns gently south, cradling the village of Oszu. A lot or a little? I had carved up countries myself. The smaller segment became part of the attacker's empire. My grandfather wants Mother to come home but she doesn't want to so she sent me to live with him and sent my brother to live with my father's father.

    Another clambered precariously on top, five feet up, and stuck a noodle into a cog so that it extended limply into the air: it looked like a weapon, if you showed enough imagination. I never dared say anything, but I joined in the calls for silence at the end, when the news stopped and the Voice came on. But we knew it was because of the Zafirs. In Aleppo, a Syrian activist said the rebels were trying to extend their area of control northwards from the Salaheddine district, where the most intense fighting has been, with clashes around the TV and radio station.

Overall, however, this is a gripping narrative, undoubtedly destined to be regarded as a classic picture of war, seen through the eyes of a bright, courageous child. A sun-baked stagecloth, beautifully lit by Philippe Vialatte, Battlefields and playgrounds book a world of aridity and heat.

After a while he asked, 'Where does your father work? The most southerly slopes of the mountain, where the sun stays the longest, are directly above the village.

So we had to sell our wonderful wine to the Zafirs for much less than it was worth, and they used our Oszu wine to push up the price of the inferior Tokaj wine. A Syrian army helicopter continued to fire machine gun rounds relentlessly on the city yesterday.

Following that attempt a group of kids carries out a revenge beating. Zafir had a brother who lived in the neighbouring village of Tokaj, and between them they did most of the buying.

He actually lived opposite my grandfather at the northern end of the High Street, in an enormous house with eight windows overlooking the street. Not to mention the One who owned the little chapel on the hill above the High Street.

He was an imposing figure, puffing and panting as he walked along in one of his ten shabbes suits even when it wasn't the shabbes. Butterball curses around his friends, his therapist, and occasionally around his parents. I thought that God might own several houses, like the Count, who was also invisible and had palaces in Vienna and Budapest as well as the Castle at the edge of the village.

In our village alone there were three Gods, all of whom had houses; the Catholic One had the biggest, then came the Calvinist One, and then the Jewish One.

There was certainly no question of my staying once I was old enough to go to a proper school. Judged purely as a piece of stagecraft, the work is breathtaking.

Although it is jointly directed, it bears all the trademarks we associate with Brook. It was this that caused the trouble. I watched him, wondering how far he would dare to walk. Like any preadolescent, Janos is preoccupied with games and sports, daydreams and friends.

Zeebra Books Surely one of the most powerful Holocaust novels we have seen to date, Hungarian author Nyiri's story of a young Jewish boy who lives through WWII in Budapest is a wrenching exploration of a childhood torn apart by persecution and war.

The youngster becomes a shrewd judge of human nature, even as he questions the existence of God and the value of his religion in a world where prejudice escalates to extermination. Next door to Kica lived old Mr Grossman, with his white hair and his frozen, benevolent smile.

I was little then, and I found it impossible to believe that the world was any older than I was.
