"Having returned from a worldwide journey to reclaim his wife, Akemi, Midnight returns to Queens, where he hopes to create a new, less tumultuous life with his love. But things fall apart when violence targets his younger sister Naja. Forsaking his usual control, the ninja warrior kills his sister's attacker in cold blood, forcing him on the run and into the only shelter he can find: a seedy money laundering ring whose members are in league with the police. Though Midnight is promised temporary refuge, he's soon recognized for the murder of Naja's attacker, and lands in jail. Separated from his love, his city, and his family, Midnight must cling to his Muslim beliefs to stay strong. But soon enough, he meets Ricky Santiaga, the man who will become his leader and father figure...and perhaps, his only hope" --

The massacre on October 6, 1976, in Bangkok was brutal and violent, its savagery unprecedented in modern Thai history. Four decades later there has been no investigation into the atrocity; information remains limited, the truth unknown. There has been no collective coming to terms with what happened or who is responsible. Thai society still refuses to confront this dark page in its history. Moments of Silence focuses on the silence that surrounds the October 6 massacre. Silence, the book argues, is not forgetting. Rather it signals an inability to forget or remember—or to articulate a socially meaningful memory. It is the “unforgetting,” the liminal domain between remembering and forgetting. Historian Thongchai Winichakul, a participant in the events of that day, gives the silence both a voice and a history by highlighting the factors that contributed to the unforgetting amidst changing memories of the massacre over the decades that followed. They include shifting political conditions and context, the influence of Buddhism, the royal-nationalist narrative of history, the role played by the monarchy as moral authority and arbiter of justice, and a widespread perception that the truth might have devastating ramifications for Thai society. The unforgetting impacted both victims and perpetrators in different ways. It produced a collective false memory of an incident that never took place, but it also produced silence that is filled with hope and counter-history. Moments of Silence tells the story of a tragedy in Thailand—its victims and survivors—and how Thai people coped when closure was unavailable in the wake of atrocity. But it also illuminates the unforgetting as a phenomenon common to other times and places where authoritarian governments flourish, where atrocities go unexamined, and where censorship (imposed or self-directed) limits public discourse. The tensions inherent in the author’s dual role offer a riveting story, as well as a rare and intriguing perspective. Most of all, this provocative book makes clear the need to provide a place for past wrongs in the public memory.

Knowledge Bennett's latest body of work "Black Series" marks an evolution from his deep interest in socio-political pop-art based subject matters. It gives way to an introspective yet conceptual concern marked by abstraction and minimalism; one that is deeply rooted in the collective consciousness and the infinite capabilities of thy self. Each artwork within this series provides a new perspective, an intimate moment of respite in which color is free from object and becomes subject itself.

Shiva wakes up to find she has been asleep for three years. In that time, the world around her has changed drastically. Her friends and family seem different. Strangers act oddly. It's Iran in 1980 and she has just slept through the Islamic Revolution. For the next ten years, Shiva continues to fall asleep for years at a time. Each time she wakes up there's a new change she has to try to grasp: the war with Iraq, a series of murders of dissident artists as well as transformations in her own family. Meanwhile, the playwright creating Shiva's story begins to receive phone calls threatening her life. A Moment of Silence, by Mohammad Yaghoubi-one of the most beloved Iranian plays of the last 30 years-is a surreal, poetic, and surprisingly comic meditation on Iran's turbulent history.

Six Moments of Silence is a true story that was inspired by the death of a respected and close family member who died in the South Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001. The loss tore K.T. Morgan's family apart and led her to examine and recreate her identity. As the dust settled, she divorced her husband of thirteen years and as a single mother embarked on a study of psychoanalysis, her current profession. The psychoanalytic process, along with her commitment to writing, led to new understandings and new meanings, which continue to have a powerful impact on the way Morgan lives her life. A woman of dignity and grace developed and a stronger identity emerged. This book charts that course, keeping with the death of Morgan's beloved cousin, Henry B. Gettling, through several transformational experiences. Morgan's story provides a compelling platform from which the complexity and value of overcoming adversity and trauma is illuminated. As a psychoanalyst, Morgan has been able to provide a critical response to the growing acknowledgement that 9/11 has altered the world and further how it continues to have a transformational effect on both Eastern and Western ideals.
