Book Summary:

Alex Fitzpatrick, transplanted Jersey girl, has recently moved to Sherman, Nebraska and opened her own pub. Sherman is on the map, but sometimes Alex feels she's living in a time warp. The little boys have crew cuts and the residents smile and say hello to strangers. No one locks their doors. Then, on a cold October night, Book Ends, a wonderful Main Street bookstore, burns down with the owner, Alex's friend Barb, inside. As Alex grieves, her initial unease about the fire deepens into a conviction that it was arson. She digs into Barb's past and finds enemies there: an abusive ex-husband-a farmer embittered by their divorce-and closer to home, God's Warriors, a secretive local men's group: think Promise Keepers meets Ku Klux Klan. Becoming a detective was not Alex's game plan and sometimes she feels like a Miss Marple impersonator. But Alex is determined to discover who set the fire. Humor helps her keep things in perspective. She's also helped by her wisecracking friend Kathy (her instructor in Nebraska 101) and Chris, a beautiful photographer to whom she is secretly, unwillingly attracted. But someone wants them to stop, and pranks escalate into threats. To discover the arsonist, Alex must decode the often mystifying culture of Sherman, Nebraska, whose sunny surface conceals more darkness than she'd bargained for. Ultimately, her investigation will force her to confront this question: does a Jersey tomato belong in Nebraska dirt? This is the first book in the Alex Fitzpatrick mystery series.

Book Summary:

Through a Glass Darkly tells the story of Ron Hennessey, an Iowa farmer who returned from the Korean War to discover that farming no longer held much allure. Hennessey joined a Catholic missionary society and after nine years of study was ordained a priest and sent to Guatemala. The book describes Hennessey's conversion from being an unapologetic patriot from America's heartland to a staunch opponent of Ronald Reagan's policies in Central America - policies that occasionally threatened Hennessey's life. Hennessey's story has a subtext: America's ideals of freedom, democracy, and progress-with-justice have been violated abroad by one U.S. president after another.

Book Summary:

Roger Ebert has been writing film reviews for the Chicago Sun-Times for over four decades now and his biweekly essays on great movies have been appearing there since 1996. As Ebert noted in the introduction to the first collection of those pieces, “They are not the greatest films of all time, because all lists of great movies are a foolish attempt to codify works which must stand alone. But it’s fair to say: If you want to take a tour of the landmarks of the first century of cinema, start here. Enter The Great Movies III, Ebert’s third collection of essays on the crème de la crème of the silver screen, each one a model of critical appreciation and a blend of love and analysis that will send readers back to the films with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasm—or maybe even lead to a first-time viewing. From The Godfather: Part II to Groundhog Day, from The Last Picture Show to Last Tango in Paris, the hundred pieces gathered here display a welcome balance between the familiar and the esoteric, spanning Hollywood blockbusters and hidden gems, independent works and foreign language films alike. Each essay draws on Ebert’s vast knowledge of the cinema, its fascinating history, and its breadth of techniques, introducing newcomers to some of the most exceptional movies ever made, while revealing new insights to connoisseurs as well. Named the most powerful pundit in America by Forbes magazine, and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Roger Ebert is inarguably the most prominent and influential authority on the cinema today. The Great Movies III is sure to please his many fans and further enhance his reputation as America’s most respected—and trusted—film critic.

Book Summary:

Where do you find truth? Unanswered questions and unsolved mysteries are integral to human experience. The Brotherhood, an otherworldly conspiratorial entity steeped in witchcraft, intrigue, and murder, served by Lazarus Berakus and Damein Rathskin, believe it is up to qualified men to lead the world into harmony. “One world, one government, many gods.” The Brotherhood’s manipulation of world finances brings devastation to the farm community of ten-year-old Skeeter Beor. When farmers organize to fight back, dissension among them brings violence, social havoc, and finally soul-searching for Skeeter and her family. Lured by the warm spring wind, the children at Skeeter’s one-room country school venture off on an unauthorized hike and happen upon a mystery in the making, which leaves her with foreboding. It is the catalyst for Skeeter reluctantly growing into womanhood. The spiritual, emotional, and physical challenges present a variety of reactions: fear, humor, sensitivity, and an aching to express love. Into the mix Shanna Drake, the famous actress, boldly manipulates her way into the social realm of the Brotherhood in search of her birth mother, who she feels defrauded her of her birthright. Surprise and danger await.

Book Summary:

Suffering, the sacred, and the sublime are concepts that often surface in humanities research in an attempt to come to terms with what is challenging, troubling or impossible to represent. These intersecting concepts are used to mediate the gap between the spoken and the unspeakable, between experience and language, between body and spirit, between the immanent and the transcendent, and between the human and the divine. The twenty-five essays in Through a Glass Darkly: Suffering, the Sacred, and the Sublime in Literature and Theory, written by international scholars working in the fields of literary criticism, philosophy, and history, address the ways in which literature and theory have engaged with these three concepts and related concerns. The contributors analyze literary and theoretical texts from the medieval period to the postmodern age, from the works of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Donne, and Herbert to those of Endô Shûsaku, Alice Munro, Annie Dillard, Emmanuel Levinas, and Slavoj Žižek. This book will be of particular interest to scholars of religion and literature, philosophy and literature, aesthetic theory, and trauma studies.

Book Summary:

In 4562, Christian Brandon, a successful 35 year old physician, leaves his comfortable home and with his ten year old daughter, Gwen, emigrates to distant Kerry, the only planet on record to have destroyed itself with a no-holds-barred nuclear war 1500 years earlier. Chris feels certain the preapocalyptic ruins hold the secret to the missing home planet of man, the home that is clearly indicated by the early languages and customs yet is no where to be found. Christian's convictions are based on anomalies in both the galaxy itself and the pattern of man's 4500 year galactic history. He senses a connection with the Word, the visionary founder of the Sapphire Way, who was present at the preapocalyptic colonization of Kerry. The quest for answers has an odd pattern of its own, and over Christian's lifetime involve interplanetary war and the apparently impossible faster than light star drive.

Book Summary:

In a Glass Darkly collects together five short stories from gothic horror and mystery writer Sheridan Le Fanu. The book, published in 1872 a year before Le Fanu's death, is named from a passage in Corinthians which speaks of humankind perceiving the world "through a glass darkly." The stories are told from the posthumous writings of an occult detective named Dr Martin Hesselius. In Green Tea a clergyman is being driven mad by an evil demon that takes the ephemeral form of a monkey, but is unseen by others as it burdens the victim's mind with psychological torment. In The Familiar, revised from Le Fanu's The Watcher of 1851, a sea captain is stalked by a dwarf, "The Watcher." Is this strange character from captain's past? In Mr Justice Harbottle a merciless court judge is attacked by vengeful spirits, dreaming he is sentenced to death by a horrific version of himself. The story was revised from 1853's An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street. In The Room in the Dragon Volant, a notable mystery which includes a premature burial theme, an innocent young Englishman in France tries to rescue a mysterious countess from her unbearable situation. Lastly, Carmilla tells the tale of a lesbian vampire. It was a huge influence on Bram Stoker's writing of Dracula and the basis for the films Vampyr in 1932 and The Vampire Lovers in 1970.
