Sohrab Ahmari was a teenager living under the Iranian ayatollahs when he decided that there is no God. Nearly two decades later, he would be received into the Roman Catholic Church. In From Fire, by Water, he recounts this unlikely passage, from the strident Marxism and atheism of a youth misspent on both sides of the Atlantic to a moral and spiritual awakening prompted by the Mass. At once a young intellectual’s finely crafted self-portrait and a life story at the intersection of the great ideas and events of our time, the book marks the debut of a compelling new Catholic voice.

Author Jean Rikhoffs life often reads as if it were fiction instead of an actual catalog of facts. Shes had no interest in settling down into what would be described as a normal life. In this memoir, she recaps her lifes out-of-the ordinary adventures against the backdrop of water, earth, fire, and air. Earth, Air, Fire, and Water is Rickhoffs account of growing up in the 1950s. She tells about trying many roles, such as writer, wife, mother, professor, friend, with her real role in life always seeming to evade her. Her adventures include several years spent in Europe and numerous visits to Africa and India as well as remote locations such as Cambodia and the Easter Islands. Among her many experiences are a doomed love affair with a Spanish count, an extraordinary encounter with a Masai chieftain in Kenya, and an intense and humorous friendship with the famous American sculptor David Smith. With anecdotes and photographs, this memoir shows that through all of Rikhoffs many exploits, she is searching for who she isnot an appendage to someone else, but as a woman who wants to carve out a life that is uniquely her own. Best Memoir of 2011 from the Adirondack Center for Writing

The average age of the 200 men on board HMS Ardent was 23 in May 1982 when she made a lonely midnight run into Falkland Sound, an hour ahead of the British amphibious group about to retake the Islands. In the crucial hours that followed, her naval gunfire support kept enemy troops and aircraft pinned down at Goose Green and Darwin. Despite a few scares it all looked good. Until 5.44 p.m. At that precise moment, out of the gathering dusk, Ardent came under the most concentrated attack of any ship taking part in the landings. She was hit 17 times in 22 minutes and 1 in 4 of her ship's company was either killed or wounded. She lost a greater proportion of her men than any other fighting unit in the entire war. So why has the British public forgotten her name? THROUGH FIRE AND WATER tells the frigate's story from Christmas 1981 in Amsterdam to her sinking in Falkland Sound -aand beyond. It follows the families who waved off sons, lovers, brothers, husbands and fathers as she left the dockyard. It explains what it was like for British sailors in the Falklands and how it felt for those waiting at home for news. It reflects the sickening fear of being in a defenceless warship singled out for destruction and the feeling of despair of those on board as they tried to save their ship and their mates as bomb after bomb came crashing down. In a war so well documented, THROUGH FIRE AND WATER is the first book to document the dramatic true story of the forgotten frigate. Now, 25 years, it is time to remember the heroic actions of the men on board HMS Ardent.
