“This is a fresh take on the American road story, filled with people and ideas we rarely get to see onstage…It offers two seriously rich roles for women, each with important things worth singing about…Miss You Like Hell is a powerful example of what musicals do best: explore the unprotected border where individual needs and social issues intermix.” —Jesse Green, New York Times A troubled teenager and her estranged mother—an undocumented Mexican immigrant on the verge of deportation—embark on a road trip and strive to mend their frayed relationship along the way. Combined with the musical talent of Erin McKeown, Hudes artfully crafts a story of the barriers and the bonds of family, while also addressing the complexities of immigration in today’s America.

Highly illuminating for parents, vital for students and book lovers alike, Enchanted Hunters transforms our understanding of why children should read. Ever wondered why little children love listening to stories, why older ones get lost in certain books? In this enthralling work, Maria Tatar challenges many of our assumptions about childhood reading. Much as our culture pays lip service to the importance of literature, we rarely examine the creative and cognitive benefits of reading from infancy through adolescence. By exploring how beauty and horror operated in C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels, and many other narratives, Tatar provides a delightful work for parents, teachers, and general readers, not just examining how and what children read but also showing through vivid examples how literature transports and transforms children with its intoxicating, captivating, and occasionally terrifying energy. In the tradition of Bruno Bettelheim’s landmark The Uses of Enchantment, Tatar’s book is not only a compelling journey into the world of childhood but a trip back for adult readers as well.

In Horror and Its Aftermath: Reconsidering Theology and Human Experience, Sally Stamper brings together psychoanalytic theory, early childhood development, and theological recourse to psychology into a fresh conversation about human suffering and the contingencies of human existence before God. She argues that a constant awareness of vulnerability to profound suffering shapes and inflects human experience and that insight into the consequent human anxiety is a powerful resource for theological reflection on sin, grace, salvation, and redemption. Stamper narrates what she calls “normative anxiety” by taking recourse to object relations theories of early childhood development and critical readings of literary texts for young children, including Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and Dr. Seuss’ “What Was I Scared Of?” Building on Marilyn McCord Adams’s treatment of horror-participation and Jonathan Lear’s argument for radical hope, Stamper develops a complex argument that gestures toward a new eschatological vision centered on a transcendent God who is both radically other and intimately engaged in human life.
