Explanation of the Book:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You, After You, and Still Me. “You’re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world for a bit. But I hope you feel a bit exhilarated too. Live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle. Just live well. Just live. Love, Will.” How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living? Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started. Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . . For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that brings. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.

Cultural Encounters in Contemporary Spain

Release: 2010
Editor: Bucknell University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This book explores how Clara Janes's poetry mediates competing religious and cultural worldviews in the context of contemporary Spain, a geo-political region that is experiencing new relationships as a member of the European Union and as a destination for immigrants from diverse cultural and linguistic groups. Janes combines aesthetic innovation with a keen interest in cultural forms from outside the traditional boundaries of the West, making her poetry particularly suited for a study of the changing relationships in Spain between the West and its eastern or Oriental others. Previous critical studies have focused on feminist approaches to Janes's oeuvre. This study seeks to expand those discussions through an analysis of the aesthetics of cultural otherness (rather than simply gendered otherness) within Janes's prolific literary production. The first chapter addresses one of Janes's earliest cross-cultural texts, Kampa (1986), which voices a literary encounter between a Spanish poetic speaker and the renowned Czech poet Vladimir Holan. Kampa includes a musical and lyrical composition performed on tape, and its unconventional musical mode offers an alternative to divisions between western and non-western literary and musical forms. The second chapter analyzes Divan del opalo de fuego (O la leyenda de Layla y Machnun) (1996), a text that brings a famous Islamic legend about unification into the Spanish literary tradition for the first time. The legend originated in ancient Bedouin poetry, and is as famous in the Islamic world as Romeo and Juliet is in the West. Janes's Divan recalls the writings of San Juan de la Cruz and Petrarch, while singing the praises of Islamic mystical forms. The work thus brings diverse literary and cultural traditions into dialogue. Janes's incorporation of Islamic mystical forms is once again evident in the third chapter, dedicated to Los secretos del bosque (2002), but Islamic forms are here set alongside Jewish, Christian, and Hindu philosophical and religious traditions. The text follows the stages of an alchemical process, and the combination of scientific, literary, and religious discourse highlights the intricate cultural relationships at the heart of Spain's and Janes's literary production. The final chapter considers the juxtapositions of western and eastern philosophical traditions in Janes's most recent book of visual poetry, Espacios translucidos (2007). The work combines quotations from diverse historical and cultural regions, photographs filled with signs, and mystical language. Several signs that Janes mentions in the introduction (such as hieroglyphics and labyrinths) recall distant cultures and structures of belief that require (and have instigated) monumental efforts to "read." In a similar way, the quotations, modified photographs, and mystical poetry in Espacios translucidos exhibit an "otherness" that encourages new approaches to signs, cultural difference, and the self.

The novel takes the form of "the world's longest letter," in diary form, going from date to date through a little more than a year's time. In her writing, Stargirl mixes memories of her bittersweet time in Mica, Arizona, with involvements with new people in her life. In Love, Stargirl, we hear the voice of Stargirl herself as she reflects on time, life, Leo, and - of course - love. “Spinelli is a poet of the prepubescent. . . . No writer guides his young characters, and his readers, past these pitfalls and challenges and toward their futures with more compassion.” —The New York Times

Explanation of the Book:

A counterintelligence expert shows readers how to use trust to achieve anything in business and in life. Robin Dreeke is a 28-year veteran of federal service, including the United States Naval Academy, United States Marine Corps. He served most recently as a senior agent in the FBI, with 20 years of experience. He was, until recently, the head of the Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program, where his primary mission was to thwart the efforts of foreign spies, and to recruit American spies. His core approach in this mission was to inspire reasonable, well-founded trust among people who could provide valuable information. The Code of Trust is based on the system Dreeke devised, tested, and implemented during years of field work at the highest levels of national security. Applying his system first to himself, he rose up through federal law enforcement, and then taught his system to law enforcement and military officials throughout the country, and later to private sector clients. The Code of Trust has since elevated executives to leadership, and changed the culture of entire companies, making them happier and more productive, as morale soared. Inspiring trust is not a trick, nor is it an arcane art. It’s an important, character-building endeavor that requires only a sincere desire to be helpful and sensitive, and the ambition to be more successful at work and at home. The Code of Trust is based on 5 simple principles: 1) Suspend Your Ego 2) Be Nonjudgmental 3) Honor Reason 4) Validate Others 5) Be Generous To be successful with this system, a reader needs only the willingness to spend eight to ten hours learning a method of trust-building that took Robin Dreeke almost a lifetime to create.
