After the end of World War II, Clara Kirkpatrick returns from the Women's Army Corp to deliver a dying soldier's last wishes: convey his love to his young widow, Mattie, with apologies for the missed life they had planned to share. Struggling with her own post-war trauma, Clara thinks she's not prepared to handle the grief of this broken family. Yet upon meeting Mattie, and receiving a baby quilt that will never cuddle the soldier's baby, Clara vows to honor the sacrifices that family made. Now a labor and delivery nurse in her rural hometown, Clara wraps each new babe in the gifted quilt and later stitches the child's name into the cloth. As each new child is welcomed by the quilt, Clara begins to wonder whatever happened to Mattie—and if her own life would ever experience the love of a newborn. Little does she know that she will have the opportunity to re-gift the special quilt—years later and carrying even greater significance than when it was first bestowed.

Postmodernism in Pieces performs a postmortem on what is perhaps the most contested paradigm in literary studies. In the wake of a critical consensus proclaiming its death, Matthew Mullins breaks postmodernism down into its most fundamental orthodoxies and reassembles it piece by piece in light of recent theoretical developments in Actor-Network-Theory, object-oriented philosophy, new materialism, and posthumanism. In the last two decades postmodernism has collapsed under the weight of the very phenomena it set out to deconstruct: language, whiteness, masculinity, class, the academy. Recasting these categories as social constructs has done little to alleviate their material effects. Through detailed analyses of everyday objects in novels by Leslie Marmon Silko, Toni Morrison, Jonathan Lethem, John Barth, David Foster Wallace, Don DeLillo, and Julia Alvarez, Mullins argues that what makes fiction postmodern is its refusal to accept "social" explanations for problems facing a given culture, and its tendency instead to examine everyday things and people as constituent pieces of larger networks. The result is a new story of postmodernism, one that reimagines postmodernism as a starting point for a new mode of literary history rather than a finish line for modernity.

A victim of corporate downsizing in the bank at which he has worked for thirty years and trapped in an unhappy marriage, Henry Earl considers his future. He thinks about his life and how he came to be where he is today. He remembers his father: a force of nature and, sadly, a man as deaf as Henry has become. Recalling the events of both their lives—their laughter, their loves, and their tragedies—Henry weighs the past and the present and comes to a decision about what to do next in this dark comic tale.

Bruno Latour stirs things up. Latour began as a lover of science and technology, co-founder of actor-network theory, and philosopher of a modernity that had “never been modern.” In the meantime he is regarded not just as one of the most intelligent—and also popular—exponents of science studies but also as a major innovator of the social sciences, an exemplary wanderer who walks the line between the sciences and the humanities. This book provides the first comprehensive overview of the Latourian oeuvre, from his early anthropological studies in Abidjan (Ivory Coast), to influential books like Laboratory Life and Science in Action, and his most recent reflections on an empirical metaphysics of “modes of existence.” In the course of this enquiry it becomes clear that the basic problem to which Latour’s work responds is that of social tradition, the transmission of experience and knowledge. What this empirical philosopher constantly grapples with is the complex relationship of knowledge, time, and culture.

What chance is there really that sent on its way, a book of poems will have a sizable audience? Poets, poets like Rick Hilber, should and do want the quest for such an audience. Their quest is for the book length collection of poems written for the person who will read it in one sitting, or finish it soon thereafter, maybe even because they felt compelled to do so. There is indeed a great prospect of this for you the reader of poetry in this collection. The first audience for a poem or a collection of poems is the poet himself or herself. This is definitely true of this poet who is passionate about making the poetry collection hold together and have a life of its own. “I can not promise you a book you can not put down or feel compelled to finish even; but I can shoot the moon and want that very thing for my poetry.” This collection will not disappoint, and it promises to be a resource for you the reader for its reflection, meditation, and contemplation of what is required to stay in the moment and to live life deliberately and with appreciation for life itself.

Why would God take man from the earth (that appeared a veritable garden itself) and move Adam to another garden? Who were the 'Son's of God' in the Book of Genesis that procreated with the 'daughters of men' and produced the giants? Who is the favored man with the writer's inkhorn in Ezekiel? Did you know the Bible not only mentions the mark of the beast (666) but there is another mark as well? Some books of the Apocrypha were long ago removed from the Christian Canon and today are misunderstood or entirely rejected in many Bible circles. Nevertheless they deserve to sit alongside the rest of scripture for they are the missing pieces to Bible mysteries.
