A young businesswoman attempts to make a great leap in her company, and an even greater one in her love life. A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether to uphold her family's politics, or to be true to her heart. Whether captured in the passion of love at first sight, or realising that self-love takes precedent over the latter, the character's in these vibrant stories try to navigate this most complex human emotion and understand why it holds them hostage. Bolu takes a step in decolonising tropes of love and creates new stories inspired by the wildly beautiful tales that already exist in so many communities and cultures. Moving exhilaratingly across perspectives, continents and genres, from the historic to vividly current, Love in Colour is a celebration of romance in all its forms.

Sorrow in the House of Colour

There is only one string that binds all of these colours together, and this one string is love. Love in the colour house is an adventure, a melting point where opposites are united. Love is like a gift that can never be retrieved.

In Sorrow in the House of Colour, Julius I. Ebetaleye challenges orthodox approaches to racial integration with an honest, radical, thought-provoking story of the attempt to achieve racial harmony in an interracial relationship. The perspective from which this book is written is unusual and as such the ideas expressed are particularly important. Even those who lay claim to metaphorical 'colour blindness' will find this original work an eye-opener. This book, Sorrow in the House of Colour, is based on a true-life story stemming from the intimate experience of the principal character. The objective again is to, amongst other things, bring to focus the diversity of humanity, especially in regard to the black and white racial divide with a view to sensitizing both races to identify a common basis for mutual co-existence in order to make the world a better place to live in. This is against the background of an increasing globalisation of the various facets of human endeavours whereby as they say, the world is becoming one big village, thus making sustainable mutually beneficial inter-relationship inevitable. Therefore, the earlier our our respective prejudices and mind sets are de-emphasized for those features typifying the commonality of humans, the better for the entire mankind. In essence the objective is to sensitize rather than criticise. The intent is to foster Harmony rather than brew Acrimony. The goal is to achieve a better World rather than build brick Walls. It is my hope that the reading public find Sorrow in the House of Colour as stimulating as it is thought-provoking and relevant message, a richly-textured piece of writing that skilfully manages to be at price inclusive, thought-provoking and highly readable. It is a significant, by which I mean that it has relevance to the reader on a number of levels, which is itself sure testimony to the author's creative versatility. It is a book which abounds with a wealth of perceptively observed detail, obviously the product of real experience, which lends to the book a poignant, sometimes quite gritty reality, a dramatic immediacy, which is one of its key strengths. The characters, situations and dialogue are relayed in vivid and lively detail which makes each moment seem entirely authentic. As a result, the reader is effortlessly drawn into the fabric of this sotry, experiencing it as his or her own reality. The structure of the book is an accomplished device in itself, patiently built and sparingly meted out with an eye on the necessities of tension, pace, climax and anti-climax. May I entreat you to avail yourselves of this publication and recommend same to a friend.

In the present book all chapters have been rigorously peer-reviewed and revised to ensure the highest standards throughout.

Along with its companion volume, this book offers a fascinating glimpse into the current avenues of research into colour, a phenomenon which daily affects all our lives in often surprising ways. The majority of the papers originated in a 2004 conference entitled ‘Progress in Colour Studies’ which was held in the University of Glasgow, U.K. The contributions to this first volume, which is principally linguistic and anthropological in content, and to its companion on the psychological aspects of colour, present either summaries of state-of-the-art colour research in various disciplines, or in-depth accounts of certain aspects of such work. This volume includes approaches such as Natural Semantic Metalanguage, social network analysis, quantitative analysis, type modification, vantage theory, the centrality of social norms of inference, place-names and heraldry. In the process, new insights are offered into the following languages: English, French, Portuguese, Sorbian, Burarra, Cape Breton Gaelic, Tzotzil, and others.
