Book Summary: In a dazzling mix of reportage, analysis, and memoir, the leading Palestinian writer of our time reflects on aging, failure, the occupation, and the changing face of Ramallah "Few Palestinians have opened their minds and their hearts with such frankness." —The New York Times In Going Home, Raja Shehadeh, the Orwell Prize–winning author of Palestinian Walks, takes us on a series of journeys around his hometown of Ramallah. Set in a single day—the day that happens to be the fiftieth anniversary of Israel's occupation of the West Bank—the book is a powerful and moving record and chronicle of the changing face of his city. Here is a city whose green spaces—gardens and hills crowned with olive trees— have been replaced by tower blocks and concrete lots; where the Israeli occupation has further entrenched itself in every aspect of movement, from the roads that can and cannot be used to the bureaucratic barriers that prevent people leaving the West Bank. Here also is a city that is culturally shifting, where Islam is taking a more prominent role in people's everyday and political lives and in the geography of the city. A penetrating evocation of memory, pain, and place that is lightened by everyday joys such as delightful accounts of shared meals and gardening, Going Home is perhaps Raja Shehadeh's most moving and painfully visceral addition to his series of personal histories of the occupation, confirming Rachel Kushner's judgment that "Shehadeh is a buoy in a sea of bleakness."

Book Summary: Alejandro Zambra's Ways of Going Home begins with an earthquake, seen through the eyes of an unnamed nine-year-old boy who lives in an undistinguished middleclass housing development in a suburb of Santiago, Chile. When the neighbors camp out overnight, the protagonist gets his first glimpse of Claudia, an older girl who asks him to spy on her uncle Raúl. In the second section, the protagonist is the writer of the story begun in the first section. His father is a man of few words who claims to be apolitical but who quietly sympathized—to what degree, the author isn't sure—with the Pinochet regime. His reflections on the progress of the novel and on his own life—which is strikingly similar to the life of his novel's protagonist—expose the raw suture of fiction and reality. Ways of Going Home switches between author and character, past and present, reflecting with melancholy and rage on the history of a nation and on a generation born too late—the generation which, as the author-narrator puts it, learned to read and write while their parents became accomplices or victims. It is the most personal novel to date from Zambra, the most important Chilean author since Roberto Bolaño.

Book Summary: Martha Malamud provides the only scholarly English translation of De Reditu Suo with significant notes and commentary that explore historical, literary, cultural, and mythical references, as well as commenting on literary allusions, the structure, diction, and style of the poem, and textual issues. De Reditu Suo provides fascinating insights into travel and communications networks in the rapidly changing, fragmented world of the fifth century. A substantial introductory essay explores Rutilius’ place in several intellectual and literary traditions, as the poem is a sophisticated piece of literature that both draws on the rich tradition of classical Latin poetry and reflects the distinctive formal features of late antique poetry. The poem also conveys the thoughts of a man passionately devoted to Rome and its cultural heritage, enmeshed in the tumultuous political and social upheaval of his day, caught between his hopes for Rome’s restoration and his fear of its disintegration. With line-for-line translation from the Latin and a scholarly introduction, extensive notes, and comprehensive bibliography, Martha Malamud makes this important text accessible and relevant for students and scholars in Classics, Comparative Literature, Religious Studies, Medieval Studies, and Ancient History, as well as independent readers with an interest in the literature of the period.

Book Summary: "[Thich Nhat Hanh] shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth." --His Holiness The Dalai Lama Nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for a Nobel Peace Prize, Thich Nhat Hanh is one of today’s leading sources of wisdom, peace, compassion and comfort. Exiled from Vietnam over thirty years ago, Thich Nhat Hanh has become known as a healer of the heart, a monk who shows us how the everyday world can both enrich and endanger our spiritual lives. In this book, Jesus and Buddha share a conversation about prayer and ritual and renewal, and about where such concepts as resurrection and the practice of mindfulness converge. In this unique way, Thich Nhat Hanh shows the brotherhood between Jesus and Buddha-- and in the process shows how we can take their wisdom into the world with us, to "practice in such a way that Buddha is born every moment of our daily life, that Jesus Christ is born every moment of our daily life."

Book Summary: “The concept of jubilee has its roots,” notes Nancy Roth in her foreword, “in the idea of sabbath—a time of ‘re-creation, reordering, and release.' We discover that sabbath first in our own prayer, as our hearts are re-created, reordered, and released from those things which bind us.” In these meditations on the themes of jubilee Frank T. Griswold offers fresh insight into how this ancient practice can be the catalyst for renewal today. The jubilee year was intended to be a time of “going home,” a time of redemption and release for those in financial or social bondage, a time of replenishment for the land and the people who ate of its fruits. How might the concept of a jubilee “homecoming” and recreation of a just society be lived in our own day? And how might we as a church and as individuals make such changes possible? “The year of the Lord's favor,” writes Bishop Griswold, “is a season of unfoldment in which God's blessing, compassion, and justice are unleashed, not from some remote heaven but from within the human heart—from within our own hearts—as we find ourselves stretched and cracked open by God's own joy and desire for our full flourishing.” Going Home is one of our series of Cowley Cloister Books: smaller format, gift edition books designed for meditative and devotional reading.

Book Summary: An anthology of Asian diasporic writers musing on the notion of "home"—and the possibilities of outsiderhood and belonging. “I read this book and see my people—see us—and feel, in our collective outsiderhood, at home.” —Ocean Vuong, Night Sky with Exit Wounds “To be from nowhere is the state of Asian diaspora, but there is also a wild humor and imagination that comes from being underestimated, rarely counted, hardly seen. Here, we begin to draw the hopeful outlines of a collective history for those so disparate yet often lumped together.” —Jenny Zhang, Sour Heart Asian diasporic writers imagine “home” in the twenty-first century through an array of fiction, memoir, and poetry. Both urgent and meditative, this anthology moves beyond the model-minority myth and showcases the singular intimacies of individuals figuring out what it means to belong.

Book Summary: When sexual slavery is outlawed, most of the rational world rejoices. Another shameful chapter of history, tucked neatly away. Rory doesn’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, but the thing he wants most in the world is impossible: to go home, to his master, where he was safe. Life without slavery isn’t worth living. He dodges out of the “Freedom Project” with his new friend Demon, and vows to find his master, whatever it takes. Geo Fairbanks doesn’t even tell people he used to own a slave. And the people who know? Think he’s deluded. “The kid was a slave, Geo. He wasn’t your boyfriend.” He switched careers, moved to a new town, and cut ties with everyone, but none of it helps. He needs Rory. And he’s willing to do almost anything to find him. Once they’re reunited, everything should be perfect. Shouldn’t it? Then why does Rory have more questions than answers? His friends are done with slavery, over it, moving on, but part of him misses kneeling at Master’s feet. A very specific part of him misses being tied to Master’s bed. It would be one thing if Geo would just take over, like he did in the old days, but Geo’s just as clueless as Rory about how to live with each other as equal men. Then the unthinkable happens and Geo finds himself searching for Rory all over again. Can he find Rory before he disappears into the new black market for slaves? And if he does, will they ever figure out how to be in a relationship not dictated by legal contracts dictating exactly what they mean to each other?

Book Summary: After forty years of congressional service, five terms in the House and five in the Senate, George William Norris (1861-1944) was going home to Nebraska. Norris had lost the 1942 Senate race and felt the defeat keenly. But as his train rolled westward, he was forcefully reminded of what his legislative efforts had wrought, from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to the Rural Electrification Act (REA), which brought power to the land unfolding before him. It is here that authors Gene A. Budig and Don Walton begin their journey with this great statesman, perhaps the last progressive Republican, a tireless champion of "public power" and the common man. This book carries readers back through Norris's career and accomplishments: the establishment of the TVA and the REA as well as the Twentieth Amendment to the Constitution and the shaping of Nebraska's unique unicameral legislature. Norris recalls the battles he waged, one of which landed him in John F. Kennedy's Profiles in Courage, and the alliances he formed with leading political figures of his day, from Fiorello La Guardia to Franklin D. Roosevelt. The result is a contemporary perspective on a man who fiercely defended the public interest and followed his convictions to the lasting benefit of his state and his country.
