Book Summary:

This study focuses on the representation of the family in American drama, in particular, on various uses and conventions of the figure of the prodigal husband or son. It considers the lineage and function of this figure from the writings of Augustine, medieval iconography, Renaissance prodigal son plays, and temperance melodramas to such contemporary manifestations as television talk shows, the Recovery Movement, and plays by contemporary writers including Spalding Gray, Ntozake Shange, and Cherrie Moraga.

Book Summary:

For thousands of young British girls, the influx of Canadian soldiers conscripted to Britain during the Second World War meant throngs of handsome young men. The result was over 48,000 marriages to Canadian soldiers alone, and a mass emigration of British women to North America and around the world in the 1940’s. For many brides, the decision to leave their family and home to move to a country thousands of miles away with a man they hardly knew brought forth ensuing happiness. For others, the outcome was much different, and the darker side of the story reveals the infidelity, domestic violence, poverty, alcoholism and divorce that many lived through. War Brides draws on original archival documents, personal correspondence, and key first hand accounts to tell the amazing story of the War Brides in their own words-and shows the love, passion, tragedy and spirit of adventure of thousand of British women.

Book Summary:

"If you consider Iraq—like I do, probably twenty-nine out of thirty days—to be the pinnacle of your life, then where do you go from there? And I'm sure that a lot of veterans feel that way. To them, that was it. That was everything. So now what? They have to find something meaningful and purposeful." "When I got back from Afghanistan, there was not even so much as a briefing that said, 'Let us know if you're having problems.' There wasn't so much as a phone number. There was literally nothing." "I knew it was crazy. I was thinking, the guy on the roof's either a sniper or he's going to radio ahead. And then I thought, this is San Antonio. There's not snipers on the roof, nobody's going to blow me up here." "Whenever I look at people back here at home, I know what they're going to look like dead. I know what they look like with their brains blown out or jaws blown off or eyes pulled out. When I look at somebody I see that, to this day." —Voices of veterans interviewed in Fields of Combat For many of the 1.6 million U.S. service members who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001, the trip home is only the beginning of a longer journey. Many undergo an awkward period of readjustment to civilian life after long deployments. Some veterans may find themselves drinking too much, unable to sleep or waking from unspeakable dreams, lashing out at friends and loved ones. Over time, some will struggle so profoundly that they eventually are diagnosed with post-traumatic stress Disorder (PTSD). Both heartbreaking and hopeful, Fields of Combat tells the story of how American veterans and their families navigate the return home. Following a group of veterans and their personal stories of war, trauma, and recovery, Erin P. Finley illustrates the devastating impact PTSD can have on veterans and their families. Finley sensitively explores issues of substance abuse, failed relationships, domestic violence, and even suicide and also challenges popular ideas of PTSD as incurable and permanently debilitating. Drawing on rich, often searing ethnographic material, Finley examines the cultural, political, and historical influences that shape individual experiences of PTSD and how its sufferers are perceived by the military, medical personnel, and society at large. Despite widespread media coverage and public controversy over the military's response to wounded and traumatized service members, debate continues over how best to provide treatment and compensation for service-related disabilities. Meanwhile, new and highly effective treatments are revolutionizing how the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides trauma care, redefining the way PTSD itself is understood in the process. Carefully and compassionately untangling each of these conflicts, Fields of Combat reveals the very real implications they have for veterans living with PTSD and offers recommendations to improve how we care for this vulnerable but resilient population.

Book Summary:

This is the 3rd in a series of 4 books full of short stories about Britain's involvement in the 2nd World War. Many of the stories uncover what war was really like and not what is often portrayed in modern day chronicles. There was nothing wonderful and magnificent about war, it was, and still is, violent, brutal and inhuman, and those that took part in the fighting sometimes took on animal characteristics to survive. Death stalked the battlefield in many forms and survival was mostly pure luck rather than natural skill. Those that survived nearly 6 years of fighting were never the same again as they had hardened by all the killing. I have selected stories that begin just before war was declared, and initially cover the disgrace that ended in Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, and the Blitz. There after they delve into the sea war on the Atlantic and Russian convoys, then the Desert campaign, Greece, Crete, Morocco, Tunisia, and Italy. There are also tales about the terrible war against Japan, a country that was so cruel and inhuman towards innocent civilians as well as POW's that it is difficult to come to terms with the reasons behind what they arbitrarily did. Finally, we have the Allied landings at Normandie and the titanic fight through Europe and into Germany. Something the Allies didn't expect.

Book Summary:

Against the backdrop of an elegant Cornwall mansion before World War II and a vast continent-spanning canvas during the turbulent war years, this involving story tells of an extraordinary young woman's coming of age, coming to grips with love and sadness, and in every sense of the term, coming home... In 1935, Judith Dunbar is left behind at a British boarding school when her mother and baby sister go off to join her father in Singapore. At Saint Ursula's, her friendship with Loveday Carey-Lewis sweeps her into the privileged, madcap world of the British aristocracy, teaching her about values, friendship, and wealth. But it will be the drama of war, as it wrenches Judith from those she cares about most, that will teach her about courage...and about love. Teeming with marvelous, memorable characters in a novel that is a true masterpiece, Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher is a book to be savored, reread, and cherished forever.

Book Summary:

It is often said that America doesn't treat its elderly with the respect and compassion that other countries do. But how much do we really know about the status of old people around the world? Out Visiting and Back Home, a collection of Russian short stories on aging, helps to fill the gap. Gathering short stories by ten well-known and highly regarded contemporary Russian authors, this book offers a wide-ranging portrait of aging and old age in Russia. From tales about the harsh realities of urban life, to portraits of intergenerational conflict, to the story of a young Jewish girl just entering puberty as her grandfather is dying, these are stories we can relate to and learn from. Through them we see that, though much less prone to deny that they are growing older, Russians have a narrower view of aging than we do in the West. The idea of life as a series of aging processes is almost unknown in Russia. The stories are representative of the variety of perspectives and authorial styles in recent Russian: Vasily Shukshin has been well known since the 1960s; Vasily Beloy and Vladimir Makanin were part of the literary establishment in the Soviet period; Nina Katerli, Ludmila Petrushevskaya, Tatyana Tolstaya, and Ludmila Ulitskaya began publishing only after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Other contributors to this volume include Denis Dragunsky, Friedrich Gorenstein, and Anatoly Kim. Out Visiting and Back Home, a collection of first rate fiction that expands our insight into old age, should be read not just by those interested in the aging process, but by anyone interested in psychology, sociology, Slavic literature, comparative literature, and creative writing.
