Inside Book:

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist: a pathbreaking examination of our huge crime and incarceration problem that looks at the influence of the family--specifically one Oregon family with a generations-long legacy of lawlessness. The United States currently holds the distinction of housing nearly one-quarter of the world's prison population. But our reliance on mass incarceration, Fox Butterfield argues, misses the intractable reality: As few as 5 percent of families account for half of all crime, and only 10 percent account for two-thirds. In introducing us to the Bogle family, the author invites us to understand crime in this eye-opening new light. He chronicles the malignant legacy of criminality passed from parents to children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren. Examining the long history of the Bogles, a white family, Butterfield offers a revelatory look at criminality that forces us to disentangle race from our ideas about crime and, in doing so, strikes at the heart of our deepest stereotypes. And he makes clear how these new insights are leading to fundamentally different efforts at reform. With his empathic insight and profound knowledge of criminology, Butterfield offers us both the indelible tale of one family's transgressions and tribulations, and an entirely new way to understand crime in America.

Book Summary:

'Dear Thrumpton, how I miss you tonight,' wrote George Seymour in 1944, when he was aged twenty-one. But the object of his affection was not a young woman, but a house -- ownership of which was then a distant dream. But he did eventually acquire Thrumpton, a beautiful country house in Nottinghamshire, and it was in this idyllic home that Miranda Seymour grew up. But her upbringing was far from idyllic, as life revolved around her father's capriciousness. The House took priority, and everything -- everyone -- else was secondary. Until, that is, the day late on in his life when George Seymour took to riding powerful motorbikes around the countryside clad in black leather in the company of a young male friend. Had he taken leave of his senses? Or finally found them? And how did this sea-change affect his wife and daughter? Both biography and family memoir, IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE is a riveting and ultimately shocking portrait of desire both overt and suppressed, and the devastating consequences of misplaced love.

Book Summary:

A rusted wok; a rooster's feather; a battered cricket bat; World War II medals; a Vietnam Moratorium badge; a ring. Why are these things so precious to Beth? The war in Afghanistan is entering its eighth year. Beth has been living in her father's house, looking after him, waiting for him to die. And now the wretched old man is finally dead and she must clear out the contents of the house ready for sale... but Beth is a hoarder. Parting with anything at all is agony for her. For Martha, a professional clutter buster and ruthless neat freak, throwing things out is easy - some say, too easy. As the two women begin to trawl through the mountains of 'stuff' that have built up over the years, gradually the layers of both their lives are peeled back. In My Father's House is about passion, obsession and imagination. It is about families - their secrets, lies and loves. It explores the ways in which war damages people's lives and what it really means to be brave. How do we come to terms with the past, let go and move on?

Book Summary:

Beloved storyteller Belva Plain understands the rich tapestry of the human heart like no other. Her many dazzling New York Times bestsellers probe the shifting bonds of marriage and family with insight, compassion, and uncommon grace. And her new novel is no exception. A tale of fathers and daughters, lovers and families, acts of love and acts of betrayal, Her Father’s House is Belva Plain’s most powerful and unforgettable novel yet. It is the spring of 1968 when Donald Wolfe, a young graduate of a midwestern law school, arrives in New York. Filled with ambition and idealism, he is dazzled not only by the big city but by the vivacious, restless Lillian, whom he marries in the heat of infatuation. Surely theirs is no marriage made in heaven, but they have a child, Tina, and she is the love of Donald’s heart. For her he would give up everything--his home, his distinguished career, and his freedom. When his flawed marriage begins to fail, a choice must be made. Shall he consider a step that would force him into flight and a life of hiding? From her earliest years, Tina is exceptional, a brilliant student and a joyous, loving spirit. At the university she falls in love with Gilbert, who graduates from law school just as she is about to enter medical school. Together they go to New York, where she learns the truth about her family’s past, a truth that must change her regard for the father who has protected and cherished her. When a terrible lie has been told out of love, can it be forgiven? With courage and compassion, Belva Plain paints a moving portrait of the choices that shape the course of our lives, the secrets that haunt us, and the love that helps us heal and move on. It is a work of riveting storytelling and rare emotional power by one of the most gifted novelists of our time.

Book Summary:

“It was in a church in Munich that I saw him.... “One moment I saw the overcoat and the brow hat; the next, a blue uniform and a visored cap with its skull and crossbones. It came back with a rush: The place was Ravensbruck and the man who was making his way forward has been a guard—one of the most cruel guards. “Now he was in front of me, hand thrust out. I was face to face with one of my captors and my blood seemed to freeze. “‘Fraulein, will you forgive me?’” Communicating her experience of God’s guidance, forgiveness and power, Corrie was still challenged to live fully the truths she had learned. In her imprisonment and later her world travels, her life continued to declare that “there is no pit so deep that Jesus’ love is not deeper still.”

Book Summary:

In this true tale, Molly, now a grandmother in her seventies, tells the story of her real-life experiences in the sex trade in a series of graphic and lurid flash-backs. As the tranquil world of this mature and seemingly well-balanced woman is suddenly shattered by unexpected outbursts of bizarre and debilitating behavior, Mollys daughter, Carin, is totally bewildered by her mother's strange antics. Carin has always had a good relationship with her mother, but knows nothing of Mollys past. Mollys friends are equally confused, but little by little, her story becomes clear: how Molly became enamored of the sex trade and how that lifestyle was deeply ingrained in her personality. Her journey into darkness is long and arduous. Exposed to sex far too soon because of her mothers poor influence and bad example, Molly grew up around sex workers who groomed her for the life. Patrons exploited and abused her. When her father returned from his service in World War II, she hoped that he would help her off the path she had takenonly to have her dreams shattered. Instead of protecting her, he took advantage of her youth and promiscuity for his own financial gain. Molly is forced to do the unthinkable to gain control of her life. Told from the perspective of a survivor looking back and recovering from her experiences, In My Fathers House offers a unique and heartrending view of a girl growing up in the shadows of the sex trade.

Book Summary:

In My Father's House, the political philosopher Thomas Dumm explores a series of stark and melancholy paintings by the American artist Will Barnet. Responding to the physical and mental decline of his sister Eva, who lived alone in the family home in Beverly, Massachusetts, Barnet began work in 1990 on what became a series of nine paintings depicting Eva and other family members, as they once were and as they figured in the artist's memory. Rendered in Barnet's signature quiet, abstract style, the paintings, each featured in full color, present the ordinary and extraordinary aspects of a twentieth-century American family. Dumm first became acquainted with Barnet and his paintings in 2008. Given his scholarly focus on the lives of ordinary people, he was immediately attracted to the artist's work. When they met, Dumm and Barnet began a friendship and dialogue that lasted until the painter's death in 2012, at the age of 101. This book reflects the many discussions the two had concerning the series of paintings, Barnet's family, his early life in Beverly, and his eighty-year career as a prominent New York artist. Reading the almost gothic paintings in conversation with the writers and thinkers key to both his and Barnet's thinking—Emerson, Spinoza, Dickinson, Benjamin, Cavell, Nietzsche, Melville—Dumm's haunting meditations evoke broader reflections on family, mortality, the uncanny, and the loss that comes with remembrance.

Book Summary:

From Steven V. Roberts comes My Fathers' Houses, a memoir of growing up in Bayonne, New Jersey, an immigrant community in the shadow of the Statue if Liberty, and the story of how his father and his grandfather's dreams–and their own passion for writing and ideas–influenced Steven's future, and inspired him to seek his fortune in New York City, the media capital of the world. This is a story of a town and a time and a boy who grew up there, a boy who became a New York Times correspondent, TV and radio personality, and best–selling author. The town was Bayonne, New Jersey, a European village so close to New York that Steve could see the Statue of Liberty from his bedroom window. The time was the forties and fifties, when children of immigrants were striving to become American and find a place in a booming post–war world. The core of Steve's world was one block, where he lived in a house his grandfather, Harry Schanbam, had built with his own hands. But the story starts back in Russia, where the family business of writing and ideas began. Steve's other grandfather, Abraham Rogowsky, stole money to become a Zionist pioneer in Palestine before moving to America. The tale continues through the Depression, when Steve's parents lived one block apart in Bayonne, wrote letters to each other and married in secret. During the war years, Steve's father wrote children's books and based one of his best sellers on outings he took with his twin sons to the local train station. As his byline, he used his boys' middle names–Jeffrey Victor–so Steve got his first writing credit before he was two. The story concludes with the boy leaving Bayonne, going on to Harvard, meeting the Catholic girl who became his wife, and starting work at the New York Times–across the river, and worlds away, from where he began. Now a grandfather of five, Steve Roberts looks in the mirror and sees his own father and grandfather looking back at him–a family chain that started in 19th century Russia and thrives today in 21st century America.

One cold rainy day when my father was a little boy, he met an old alley cat on his street. The cat was very drippy and uncomfortable so my father said, "Wouldn't you like to come home with me?" This surprised the cat—she had never before met anyone who cared about old alley cats—but she said, "I'd be very much obliged if I could sit by a warm furnace, and perhaps have a saucer of milk."

Book Summary:

A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are. Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human - and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do. "The next step in fiction...Edgy, accurate, and darkly witty...Think Beckett, think Pynchon, think Gaddis. Think." --Sven Birkerts, The Atlantic

Book Summary:

The beating of Rodney King and the resulting riots in South Central Los Angeles. The violent clash between Hasidim and African-Americans in Crown Heights. The boats of Haitian refugees being turned away from the Land of Opportunity. These are among the many racially-charged images that have burst across our television screens in the last year alone, images that show that for all our complacent beliefs in a melting-pot society, race is as much of a problem as ever in America. In this vastly important, widely-acclaimed volume, Kwame Anthony Appiah, a Ghanaian philosopher who now teaches at Harvard, explores, in his words, "the possibilities and pitfalls of an African identity in the late twentieth century." In the process he sheds new light on what it means to be an African-American, on the many preconceptions that have muddled discussions of race, Africa, and Afrocentrism since the end of the nineteenth century, and, in the end, to move beyond the idea of race. In My Father's House is especially wide-ranging, covering everything from Pan Africanism, to the works of early African-American intellectuals such as Alexander Crummell and W.E.B. Du Bois, to the ways in which African identity influences African literature. In his discussion of the latter subject, Appiah demonstrates how attempts to construct a uniquely African literature have ignored not only the inescapable influences that centuries of contact with the West have imposed, but also the multicultural nature of Africa itself. Emphasizing this last point is Appiah's eloquent title essay which offers a fitting finale to the volume. In a moving first-person account of his father's death and funeral in Ghana, Appiah offers a brilliant metaphor for the tension between Africa's aspirations to modernity and its desire to draw on its ancient cultural roots. During the Los Angeles riots, Rodney King appeared on television to make his now famous plea: "People, can we all get along?" In this beautiful, elegantly written volume, Appiah steers us along a path toward answering a question of the utmost importance to us all.

Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Senator John McCain’s deeply moving memoir is the story of three generations of warriors and the ways that sons are shaped and enriched by their fathers. John McCain’s grandfather, a four-star admiral and one of the navy’s greatest commanders, led the strongest aircraft carrier force of the Third Fleet during World War II. McCain’s father, also a four-star admiral, served as commander of all U.S. forces in the Pacific during the Vietnam War. It was in Vietnam that John McCain III faced the most difficult challenge of his life. A naval aviator, he was shot down over Hanoi in 1967. Recognized as the son of a top commander, McCain was tortured and imprisoned for five and a half years. Despite this, he refused Vietnamese offers of an early release. What McCain learned from his grandfather and father enabled him to survive those hard years. A testament to the power of human endurance, Faith of My Fathers is the story of three men who fought for their country with courage and emerged with their honor intact. Praise for Faith of My Fathers “A thoughtful first-person take on survival, both physical and psychological . . . hard to top and impossible to read without being moved.”—USA Today “A candid, moving, and entertaining memoir . . . impressive and inspiring, the story of a man touched and molded by fire who loved and served his country in a time of great trouble, suffering, and challenge.”—Kirkus Reviews “A serious, utterly gripping account of faith, fathers, and the military.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Faith of My Fathers may also appeal to those who flocked to Saving Private Ryan and kept Brokaw's The Greatest Generation near the top of the bestseller lists.”—Library Journal “Faith of My Fathers is the powerful story of a war hero. In it we learn much of what matters most. As prisoner (and later Senator) McCain instructs us: Glory is not an end in itself, but rather a reward for valor and faith. And the greatest freedom and human fulfillment comes from engaging in a noble enterprise larger than oneself. Faith of My Fathers teaches deep truths that are valid in any age but that warrant special attention in our own.”—William J. Bennett

Book Summary:

The play opens in the arid summer of 1929 with an American farmer, Joe MacDonald and his family living in poverty on a run-down rented farm in the dustbowl. The ramshackle farm buildings are overshadowed by a large tree growing next to the house. The farm is owned by a local businessman, Cornelius Spenk, who has fingers in every pie. Spenk’s son is friendly with one of MacDonald’s sons, Billy. The MacDonalds also have a daughter, Becky, another small son nicknamed Peewee and an ornery grandmother living with them. There is a sandstorm in progress and during the storm we see MacDonald in his daily struggle as he carries in a heavy sack of grain. After he’s gone a black vagrant comes on and hides in the woodshed. The storm abates and the children come out to play a game of baseball. When the ball goes into the woodshed the vagrant is discovered and the alarm raised. Joe rushes out with a gun and with his wife, Mattie, he confronts the hobo who is asked what he was doing in the shed. He apparently refuses to speak until Mattie points out that he’s actually unable to speak because he hasn’t got a tongue. They find out that the hobo’s name is Abe, short for “Absalom, bringer of peace.” The kindly Mattie decides to take the vagrant in, against her husband’s better judgment and he slowly becomes a friend of the family, which is very much against the wishes of the racist farm owner, Cornelius Spenk The latter has a twin brother, Franklyn, who is the local doctor, treating grandmother, and has all the kindly qualities that Cornelius doesn’t have. In the first act we see all the pressures on the luckless Joe, the back-rent owed to Spenk, the problems of farming in the dustbowl, etc and when he is persuaded by his wife that their daughter is in need of a separate room constructing away from the boys, he brings in a load of timber but is caught in his preparations by Spenk who denies him permission to build. The tree next to the farm is a magnet for the mischievous Peewee who has his mind set on moving to a better life in the promised land of California. He is constantly climbing the tree to see if he can see that far. On once occasion he is rescued from falling by the hobo, Abe, but eventually he climbs the tree once too often and at the end of the first act we hear him fall to the earth with a thud. Billy rushes to town to tell his pa who, unknown to him, is being forced to pay off some of the back-rent he owes Spenk by working as a temporary hotel doorman. Act Two finds the injured Peewee being visited by the kindly doctor who wants to help but the family are without insurance cover and at the time there is no national health service so the boy’s healing is left in the hands of Mother Nature. The child is now paralyzed and on one of his unpaid visits the doctor suggests that the parents should try and think of something to encourage Peewee to get better. They scratch their heads for an answer until Joe comes up with an idea that sounds absurd to his wife – he decides to build a tree house. Much against his wife wishes the construction begins with Abe helping and the end result is a very simple platform with a ladder, which is shown to Peewee but is so plain that it doesn’t have the desired result. Joe becomes even more depressed until Abe points to a quote in his pocket bible “My father’s house has many rooms,” which is a message to Joe to extend the tree house. Joe decides to try Abe’s suggestion and between them they set off to build the biggest tree house anyone has ever seen. The improved version is eventually shown to Peewee and Joe is pleased to see that it gets some response from him but unfortunately word goes round the area and sightseers begin to come from far and wide. Gran is disturbed one day by the sightseers whilst trying to eat her meal and has to be physically restrained from shooting one of them. Then Cornelius Spenk picks up his son and says that he will be back later to speak to Joe about the construction. Joe thinks that he’s in for trouble but his situation with the injured Peewee has strengthened his resolve not to take the tree house down, even if and when Spenk tells him to. Much to his surprise Spenk does just the opposite, he likes it and has realized that he can make money from the sightseers so he offers Joe a business partnership with Joe to be the sitting caretaker. To persuade Joe, Spenk offers to try to get him into a secret local organization that he’s in. Joe knows this won’t go down well with Mattie and he stalls for time. While all this has been going on their daughter Becky is preparing for the annual Speaking Competition and is taken to town to do some research by Abe on the tractor. When she is late back and eventually turns up they learn that Becky has had trouble from some of the other girls and that there’s been a fight in which she has been helped by Abe. Cornelius Spenk then arrives and wants to take Abe back to town. Joe thinks it’s about the fight and tries to put it off till the next day until Spenk draws a pistol and takes Abe in by force. It transpires that an allegation has been made by one of the girls against Abe of a serious sexual assault behind the library and the vagrant is kept in custody while the Speaking Competition is being held. Joe calls to see Abe in the jail and on leaving is given a handwritten note by him. He then goes on with the family to the speaking competition and learns from Spenk that in the allegations against Abe he is supposed to have sweet-talked the girl into going behind the library with him and Joe realizes Abe has been set up. He points out to Spenk that Abe doesn’t have a tongue with which to sweet-talk anybody but Spenk dodges the issue and tells Joe to keep his mouth shut, that he’ll sort out the evidence and that the tree house is now a legally registered company on Wall Street. Joe then has a big moral dilemma because he really does need the money from the sightseers in order to get treatment for Peewee. Becky gives her talk and surprises the audience by outlining how badly black folks have been treated in American history. While she is delivering her speech we hear in the background the sound of a lynch mob and see someone dressed in the white robes of the KKK go to Abe’s cell and take him out. Billy rushes to the Competition to tell his pa but by then it is too late. Joe then has the difficult decision of what to do – he decides to face his demons and tells the audience everything that has happened and reads the note that Abe gave him, which describes how he lost his tongue. The last scene sees Joe rushing home to pack the truck for a new life in California and his last defiant act is to take an axe to the tree house. This is the same day that the infamous Wall Street Crash took place.

Book Summary:

A beautiful, fully updated edition of the popular and beloved New Jerusalem Bible, which has sold over half a million copies. The Revised New Jerusalem Bible presents anew the scholarship, character, and clarity of the 1966 Jerusalem Bible (the first modern English version) and the 1985 New Jerusalem Bible. It is a Bible that prioritizes: • a bold, rich language as suitable for reading out loud as for studying in silence, so that “the message might be fully proclaimed” (2 Timothy 4:17) • accurate translation of the original scriptures rather than the “dynamic equivalence” of some other modern versions • assurance that the message of the Bible is directed to men and women equally, despite the inbuilt bias of the English language This comprehensive Study Edition is the world’s first presentation of the full Revised New Jerusalem Bible, complete with study notes, cross-references, and book introductions. It has been prepared and edited for a modern readership by Dom Henry Wansbrough, OSB, who was general editor of the New Jerusalem Bible. Other features include: • The book of Psalms is based on the text of the 2010 translation of The Revised Grail Psalms. • Ancient systems of measure and time have been replaced by modern, metric equivalents. • A table of the notes provides explanations of the key words, themes, and ideas in the Bible’s major footnotes. • A chronological table, an index of persons, and eight pages of full-color maps provide historical context. For all who are discovering the mysteries contained in Scripture for the first time and for those coming to this holy book for regular inspiration, only a clear, understandable Bible translation will do. The Revised New Jerusalem Bible is the one Christians the world over can trust.
