Traumatic brain injury can interrupt without warning the life story that any one of us is in the midst of creating. When the author's fifteen-year-old son survives a terrible car crash in spite of massive trauma to his brain, she and her family know only that his story has not ended. Their efforts, Erik's own efforts, and those of everyone who helps bring him from deep coma to new life make up a moving and inspiring story for us all, one that invites us to reconsider the very nature of "self" and selfhood. Ruthann Knechel Johansen, who teaches literature and narrative theory, is a particularly eloquent witness to the silent space in which her son, confronted with life-shattering injury and surrounded by conflicting narratives about his viability, is somehow reborn. She describes the time of crisis and medical intervention as an hour-by-hour struggle to communicate with the medical world on the one hand and the everyday world of family and friends on the other. None of them knows how much, or even whether, they can communicate with the wounded child who is lost from himself and everything he knew. Through this experience of utter disintegration, Johansen comes to realize that self-identity is molded and sustained by stories. As Erik regains movement and consciousness, his parents, younger sister, doctors, therapists, educators, and friends all contribute to a web of language and narrative that gradually enables his body, mind, and feelings to make sense of their reacquired functions. Like those who know and love him, the young man feels intense grief and anger for the loss of the self he was before the accident, yet he is the first to see continuity where they see only change. The story is breathtaking, because we become involved in the pain and suspense and faith that accompany every birth. Medical and rehabilitation professionals, social workers, psychotherapists, students of narrative, and anyone who has faced life's trauma will find hope in this meditation on selfhood: out of the shambles of profound brain injury and coma can arise fruitful lives and deepened relationships.

Winner of the National Jewish Book Award in the Holocaust category A monumental work of nonfiction on a wartime atrocity, its sixty-year denial, and the impact of its truth Jan Gross's hugely controversial Neighbors was a historian's disclosure of the events in the small Polish town of Jedwabne on July 10, 1941, when the citizens rounded up the Jewish population and burned them alive in a barn. The massacre was a shocking secret that had been suppressed for more than sixty years, and it provoked the most important public debate in Poland since 1989. From the outset, Anna Bikont reported on the town, combing through archives and interviewing residents who survived the war period. Her writing became a crucial part of the debate and she herself an actor in a national drama. Part history, part memoir, The Crime and the Silence is the journalist's account of these events: both the story of the massacre told through oral histories of survivors and witnesses, and a portrait of a Polish town coming to terms with its dark past. Including the perspectives of both heroes and perpetrators, Bikont chronicles the sources of the hatred that exploded against Jews and asks what myths grow on hidden memories, what destruction they cause, and what happens to a society that refuses to accept a horrific truth. A profoundly moving exploration of being Jewish in modern Poland that Julian Barnes called "one of the most chilling books," The Crime and the Silence is a vital contribution to Holocaust history and a fascinating story of a town coming to terms with its dark past.

A FORMER MARINE SNIPER WAGES A PERSONAL WAR AGAINST THE CARTEL AND HUMAN TRAFFICKERS IN THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DESERT. Drew, a former Marine sniper, his partner, and an unemployed slacker become entangled in a human- trafficking ring. After a devastating financial setback, Drew reluctantly agrees to transport human cargo. Hired on to transport "special cargo," their only instructions are not to inspect the load. The discovery they make places them in the crosshairs of a sadistic cartel leader. In the desert, they join forces with an-on-the run narcotics detective and former cartel sicario. What follows is a dangerous cat-and- mouse game to save the cargo and themselves through the back-country desert of Southern California. The desert holds a path for a new life or death for all those attempting the dangerous crossing. The Silence and the Dark is a no nonsense, go for the jugular thrill ride, yet nuanced with heart felt emotions and plenty of surprises! One of the best debuts I've read in a very long time. I can't wait to read Marc Carlos' next effort! --Matt Coyle, Author of the bestselling Anthony Award-winning Rick Cahill crime novels An excellent and poignant novel. The author describes each scene so vividly the readers are transported as if they were actually there. A gut-wrenching story that moves quickly and keeps the reader engaged. While this story is fictional, it could just as well be an expose on today's immigration plight. A must read for anyone who enjoys a suspense filled action novel. --Merle Norman, Author of Finders Keepers "No disrespect, amigos, pero, you have seen me. There is no turning back on this now. Not a question of being in or not. You are all," Caritas was looking directly at Drew, "most definitely in." "We know where you live," Fatty couldn't help himself. "We know what your kids look like." The muscles and tendons in Drew's forearms twitched, firing with violence that begged to be unleashed. "No se preocupen, don't worry, boys," Caritas said as he swept the wallets and other items off the hood of the Escalade and onto the dirt. The dust cloud was still swirling as Caritas walked toward Drew and Chino. "Do the job. Don't fuck around. Get paid. Muy simple, que no?"

Victoria Frenkel Harris traces the aesthetic journey of poet Robert Bly from his early structured works of mystical imagery and lyrical landscapes to his recent explorations of intimate relationships and male socialization. Examining the various ways Bly’s prose poems articulate his opposition to the Vietnam War and his recent writings manipulate more formal patterns in detailing the intricacies of human relationships, Harris labels this evolution in form, subject, and imagery the incorporative consciousness, incorporative because it assimilates Jungian psychological categories, international poetic traditions, and a compelling breadth of topics. Harris relies in part on contemporary feminist theory to throw revealing new light on Bly’s recent works. Though sympathetic to Bly, Harris finds that—in spite of his affirmation of the interaction of psychic, creative, and intellectual energies in both sexes—the poet’s later, erotic poems tend to objectify women in counterproductive ways. Bly’s idealization of woman as a Jungian universal, Harris contends, can blind him toward actual women. Harris is at her best as she delimits with balance and precision the full complexity of the poet’s work.

The Golden Window of Silence integrates the use of silence as spiritual discipline and its abusive use by systemic structures. Silence may be used as a lifegiving practice or in a destructive way at all levels of societal systems. One of the contentions of The Golden Window of Silence is that when one uses silence to listen to all levels, one may find the source of all non-violent communication. It is by this means that silence becomes one of the most powerful means of social justice. "Proceeds from book sales go to Sunbear Community Alliance, a Texas Non-Profit Corporation."
