What queer lives, loves and possibilities teem within suburbia’s little boxes? Moving beyond the imbedded urban/rural binary, Relocations offers the first major queer cultural study of sexuality, race and representation in the suburbs. Focusing on the region humorists have referred to as “Lesser Los Angeles”—a global prototype for sprawl—Karen Tongson weaves through suburbia’s “nowhere”spaces to survey our spatial imaginaries: the aesthetic, creative and popular materials of the new suburbia. Across southern California’s freeways, beneath its overpasses and just beyond its winding cloverleaf interchanges, Tongson explores the improvisational archives of queer suburban sociability, from multimedia artist Lynne Chan’s JJ Chinois projects and the amusement park night-clubs of 1980s Orange County to the imperial legacies of the region known as the Inland Empire. By taking a hard look at the cosmopolitanism historically considered de rigeur for queer subjects, while engaging with the so-called “New Suburbanism” that has captivated the national imaginary in everything from lifestyle trends to electoral politics, Relocations radically revises our sense of where to see and feel queer of color sociability, politics and desire.

Welcome to Lemony’s summer: Lights, camera, action! My name’s Lemony, I’m nearly 15, and this is my journal. Things I like: my best friend Ro, Nick Collins, chinchillas, reading and hanging out with friends. Things I DON’T like: my glasses, the way I talk too fast around boys ... I’m too tall and too geeky, and I spend FAR too much time sitting around dreaming my life away. But with a movie being filmed in town, it looks like real life might be getting just as exciting as daydreams – even if they only hire me to make cups of tea while my cool friends get to swan around in front of the camera. Anyway, Ro, my brother Paul and I are going to have fun on the film set – as long as boring Stephen Brown doesn’t try to hang out with us...

The Van Der Byl Diamond Company, willed by its founder to his son Benedict, daughter Tracey and estranged foster-child Johnny Lance, turns out to be a bequest not of love, but of hatred. For it is couched in such terms as to offer Benedict an instrument of destruction of his bitterest rival. 'Destroy Johnny' was the old man's implacable message to his son, and, obsessively jealous of his foster-brother, Benedict sets out in ruthless pursuit of this goal. In a desperate bid to support Johnny, Tracey acquires for him the concession in the diamond-rich seabed round the coral islands of Thunderbolt and Suicide off the savage South West African coast, and Johnny throws all his resources into the construction of a vessel that will recover the stones from the ocean floor and repair his fortune at last. But Benedict, already involved in illegal diamond-dealing as a sideline, seizes this chance to attack his rival and, with a network of accomplices and some ingenious electronic tampering, plots to syphon off the diamonds. Johnny will not only be ruined by his liabilities, he will also be a laughing stock. However, Benedict's obsessive jealousy is his undoing. He cannot resist stripping his rival of his beautiful but bitchy wife Ruby as well, and when he then discards her, she takes her revenge, precipitating a climax of murder and destruction that consumes Benedict at last. Narrated with Wilbur Smith's irresistible driving thrust, The Diamond Hunters is a tale of brotherly hatred, redeemed only by the deepening love between Johnny and Tracey. It is set in London, Cape Town, on the thunderous seas around the ocean diamond fields and ends in a final confrontation between Johnny and Benedict in the blistering hyena-infested desert.

The early protagonists are Jonathan and Shanti, Bridgerajh and a young British girl, and Meghi, a girl forced into prostitution. In a new land, they strive to lead a meaningful life. The enemies are descendants of thuggees and a medley of Satanists. The vendetta haunts each generation. In the second generation, we meet Ramanand and his brothers struggling to define a new life of personal choice. They struggle against injustice and oppression, which affects their love for family. Their lives are uprooted by the rapacity of the apartheid regime’s legally creating a tragic Indian Diaspora within South Africa. The descendants of the thuggees have embraced organised crime. In the third generation are couples like Andries and Joyce; Vishaal and Sabita; Jayesh, who is tangled with Janice, Sharita, and Zuleka; and Pravesh and his beloved Durgha, who become political refugees and fight the enemy to a tragic finish. Intertwined are the lives of Siphiwe an African freedom fighter and his white sweetheart Victoria. There’s Spanner and his Indian girlfriend Sunita. The enemy is led by a godfather whose young pupil is Akhsay. A host of people have their lives interwoven with all these persons. The climax is a private war transcending national boundaries. There is a group of knights on a journey of disappointment and discovery. Finally, there is the fourth generation that wants answers and frees itself. The protagonist is Aditi, a young woman of the twenty-first century. The letters to Aditi are an attempt to answer her questions.
