From a cuneiform tablet to a Chicago prison, from the depths of the cosmos to the text on our T-shirts, art historian and journalist Lawrence Weschler finds strange connections wherever he looks. The farther one travels (through geography, through art, through science, through time), the more everything seems to converge -- at least, it does through Weschler's giddy, brilliant eyes. Weschler combines his keen insights into art (both contemporary and Renaissance), his years of experience as a chronicler of the fall of Communism, and his triumphs and failures as the father of a teenage girl into a series of essays that are sure to illuminate, educate, and astound.

Flannery O'Connor was working on Everything That Rises Must Converge at the time of her death. This collection is an exquisite legacy from a genius of the American short story, in which she scrutinizes territory familiar to her readers: race, faith, and morality. The stories encompass the comic and the tragic, the beautiful and the grotesque; each carries her highly individual stamp and could have been written by no one else.

Influenced by Alfred Hitchcock, Gertrude Stein, The Wooster Group, and Richard Foreman, John Jesurun began to produce his own theatrical pieces in the early 1980s. Everything That Rises Must Converge was first performed at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis and then at the Kitchen in New York in 1990. Mel Gussow, writing in the New Times, observed that the language of the play was complex, moving "backwards, forward and sideways," but "...what holds the audience's attention is the ingenious style of presentation. While we are still trying to correlate the barrage of words and of live video figures, some of whom appear to be talking to themselves, the rear wall suddenly swings to a perpendicular, revealing an entirely different audience sitting on bleachers on the opposite side of the stage. In a mirror reversal, they have been watching our actors on monitors and our monitor-actors on stage."

First published in 1955, The Violent Bear It Away is now a landmark in American literature. It is a dark and absorbing example of the Gothic sensibility and bracing satirical voice that are united in Flannery O'Conner's work. In it, the orphaned Francis Marion Tarwater and his cousins, the schoolteacher Rayber, defy the prophecy of their dead uncle--that Tarwater will become a prophet and will baptize Rayber's young son, Bishop. A series of struggles ensues: Tarwater fights an internal battle against his innate faith and the voices calling him to be a prophet while Rayber tries to draw Tarwater into a more "reasonable" modern world. Both wrestle with the legacy of their dead relatives and lay claim to Bishop's soul. O'Connor observes all this with an astonishing combination of irony and compassion, humor and pathos. The result is a novel whose range and depth reveal a brilliant and innovative writers acutely alert to where the sacred lives and to where it does not.
