Darien Dogs by Henry Shukman

Book Description

Jim Rogers once had everything: a successful career, the love of a beautiful woman, a Manhattan penthouse and more money than he knew what to do with. Now it had all gone wrong and he was in a seedy hotel in Panama realising that the prostitute he'd just been with had stolen his wallet. Though it wasn't the money he was worried about but a sheet of folded paper, which he'd just been given by the mysterious Albert Jones: a piece of paper that might have saved his life. The search for the girl and the stolen document lead the two men deep into the Darien archipelago - a primitive, treacherous idyll that seems like Paradise but may in fact be Hell. The short novel, Darien Dogs, and the four stories that accompany it, mark the fictional debut of an assured and thrillingly gifted writer.

In Doctor No's Garden by Henry Shukman In Doctor No's Garden, Paperback (December 2015)

Features a collection of poems. From a lonely mother attempting to learn the piano to a ski-jump that never ends, from a redemptive encounter with horses on a cold day to a miraculous bowl of chicken soup, these poems display a vibrancy and variety rarely seen in contemporary poetry.

Archangel by Henry Shukman Archangel, Paperback (March 2013)

With poems on loss and mortality, on love in difficult circumstances, and on the familiar themes of childhood and family relationships, this book tells the stories of many journeys - from loss back into love - and the migrations of the author's Jewish grandparents are echoed in his own move with his wife and family from England to New Mexico.

Lost City by Henry Shukman Lost City, Paperback (February 2008)

* A thrilling, beautifully written novel about a young man's quest for a lost city in Peru - recalls Alex Garland's THE BEACH

Sandstorm by Henry Shukman Sandstorm, Paperback (May 2006)

Former foreign correspondent Charles Mortimer is all washed up, living a hand-to-mouth existence in Manhattan, wondering how things could have gone so wrong for him. A chance discovery of a newspaper obituary takes him back to the beginning of his career, when he was a young, hopeful man reporting from the Sahara Desert in the company.
