Summary

In this book, CRY of Oppressed Women, I write various forms of oppression. I show the true me. I am a radical feminist activist. I am active in environmental issues, in Sands for grieving parents, Charity for Kenya and so on. In writing this book, I give a voice to women belittled, violated, oppressed and battered by men. I conclude with strong words. Pornography degrades women. It is banal, inane and downright disgusting. I HATE pornography!! I hate all degradation of women in any form. I abhor the exploitation of young girls and older women at the hands of manipulative men. I appal sexualisation of little girls, including padded frilly swimwear. I am disgusted at what it does to the girls’ mind making them become anorexic and bulimic.  

This is a work of fiction with very real scenarios. It is a figment of imagination of the author.

    “The difference between the Parthenon and the World Trade Center, between a French wine glass and a German beer mug, between Bach and John Philip Sousa, between Sophocles and Shakespeare, between a bicycle and a horse, though explicable by historical moment, necessity, and destiny, is before all else a difference of imagination.The imagination is like the drunk man who has lost his watch, and must get drunk again to find it. It is as intimate as speech and custom, and to trace its ways we need to re-educate our eyes.”—Guy DavenportModernism spawned the greatest explosion of art, architecture, literature, painting, music, and dance of any era since the Renaissance. In its long unfolding, from Yeats, Pound and Eliot to Picasso and Matisse, from Diaghilev and Balanchine to Cunningham and Stravinsky and Cage, the work of Modernism has provided the cultural vocabulary of our time. One of the last pure Modernists, Guy Davenport was perhaps the finest stylist and most protean craftsman of his generation. Publishing more than two dozen books of fiction, essays, poetry and translations over a career of more than forty years, he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 1990.  In poetry and prose, Davenport drew upon the most archaic and the most modern of influences to create what he called “assemblages”—lush experiments that often defy classification. Woven throughout is a radical and coherent philosophy of desire, design and human happiness. But never before has Davenport’s fiction, nonfiction, poetry and translations been collected together in one compendium. Eight years after his death, The Guy Davenport Reader offers the first true introduction to the far-ranging work of this neglected genius.

    Eddie Malloy has beaten the odds by winning back his riding licence, and is trying to get his career on track once more. Just when things look like they are turning around for him, he finds himself in the gunsights of a cunning killer who is maiming and murdering racing personalities with a zeal and purpose which terrifies the racing world and mystifies the police. 
    Eddie is convinced the killer has a pre-planned hit list for these ritual slayings, and when he discovers he is high on that list, Eddie realizes that nobody can figure out the murderer's motive. Unless Eddie himself can unravel the deadly clues in time, he knows he will die. It's time for Eddie Malloy to become the hunter not the hunted. 
    If you enjoy trying to solve mysteries, you will find this a very cleverly plotted book which will challenge your logic as it spurs you along at a fast pace. 
    Written by ex-top jockey and BBC commentator Richard Pitman and racing journalist Joe McNally, Hunted is the second of the Eddie Malloy series. Eddie features in five of Richard and Joe's novels. First published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1994, this 2012 edition has been rewritten and moves along at an even faster clip.
