Even for those who are already acquainted with the insightful and brooding work of Geoffrey K. Watkins, Little Deaths will come as a dark surprise. Here are sixteen stories of life, each story standing alone in its own small world, but all of them clustered like spectators at an accident scene, not wanting to see what is happening, but unable to look away, watching and waiting for the ending; an ending which is in each story as inevitable as death, but just as unpredictable. These are not, however, stories of Death, of final rest, but of the tiny shards of shattered emotional glass which without warning cut away at our hearts, our minds and our souls and lead to those little deaths which slowly and relentlessly slay us while we are still alive.

Haunting, intoxicating and heart-poundingly suspenseful, Little Deaths is a gripping novel about love, morality and obsession, exploring the capacity for good and evil within us all. It's the summer of 1965, and the streets of Queens, New York shimmer in a heatwave. One July morning, Ruth Malone wakes to find a bedroom window wide open and her two young children missing. After a desperate search, the police make a horrifying discovery. Noting Ruth's perfectly made-up face and provocative clothing, the empty liquor bottles and love letters that litter her apartment, the detectives leap to convenient conclusions, fuelled by neighbourhood gossip and speculation. Sent to cover the case on his first major assignment, tabloid reporter Pete Wonicke at first can't help but do the same. But the longer he spends watching Ruth, the more he learns about the darker workings of the police and the press. Soon, Pete begins to doubt everything he thought he knew. Ruth Malone is enthralling, challenging and secretive – is she really capable of murder?

On an otherwise normal morning at a private school for girls, a 15-year-old student is picked up by soldiers and sent to a military camp, becoming one of the thousands of political prisoners arrested under Ferdinand Marcos' repressive regime in the 1970s. A year earlier, Marcos had declared martial law and a military government effectively took over the Philippines. After her release, author Vicky Pinpin-Feinstein was required to report to camp, her probation lasting five years. She was never charged and was never told why she was arrested. The effects of prison and the long-term probation makes Vicky's story an authentic representation of the pernicious effects of dictatorship and tyranny, effects that pervaded a life for decades to come. This is a historically vital memoir, not only moving in its rendition of what life was like for a young innocent girl, but also for its incisive analysis of the political forces that wrecked democratic ideals in a country where politics and violence have always worked together for the benefit of the few.

A Season of Little Deaths opens on a Sunday evening with William and Beth Marlow, both in their seventies, thinking separately on their life together, unaware that a day later William will die. Before news of his death reaches anyone, the reader is introduced to those it will affect most: Nick, their son, who is facing a major challenge in his career; his wife, Cate, who yearns for a life of her own having sacrificed her friends and career to raise their daughter; his brother, Edward, who is lost in a failed, childless marriage; and Sarah Yorke, an old friend who is struggling to be an actress. Set in the modern day, A Season of Little Deaths explored how the life and sudden death of William Marlow - husband, father and grandfather - creates ripples across his surviving family. William's youngest son, Nick, has his loyalty tested both personally and politically; his eldest son, Edward, fights to stop the collapse of his marriage; and his widow, Beth, struggles with a family secret that has haunted her for over thirty years. A Season of Little Deaths shifts perspective between the various characters and storylines, and examines the relationships between parents and their children, the role and failure of communication, the nature of betrayal, the risks of living too much in either the past, present or future, and how single actions can irrevocably shape a lifetime. The title itself also refers to key themes and elements of the novel, notably the deaths of children and 'ordinary' or 'unimportant' people, moments when people feel a small part of them die, as well as - following the French translation - sexual encounters.

To read his poems is to be invited into the swirling vortex of quantum physics, philosophy, evolutionary biology and personal biography. Engaging with them is not only a stimulating intellectual exercise it may lead the reader to ponder the nature of the universe and our place in it. In these poems, you meet the defiance of modern man, stripped of the easy consolations of God, conversing with silent space. This conversation vacillates from harshness in its relentless logic to tenderness in its lyricism. They do not diminish the human condition nor our unique penchant to seek meaning; but rather counsels a sense of proportion in our reactions to life's vicissitudes when placed in a cosmic scale. Jeffery Lee (Singapore Poet) Now on the poems you sent me: they are unique; they carry me along with your carefully chosen words; I cannot describe them because of the sweet meaning you have put hidden all throughout your poems, “amazing”.

Our known world, the world of twenty-first century Americans, is shaped and defined by consumer choice. The premise of consumer choice is that somewhere the perfect fit between product and purchaser exists. In the books on changing traditions the consumerist tone prevails--fundamentalists looking for an even more literal interpretation of Scripture, Protestants going home to Rome, feminists heading to the womyncentric sacred grove, conservatives fleeing inclusive rites, Catholics embracing the independent seeker church. But the consumerist impulse masks the kind of prayer and discernment necessary for living in Christian community and for following God. Twenty-first century Christians do make choices, but the hope is that they do so because they follow God. How then is one to answer the question of whether to stay or leave? Through meditating on the fruits of the Spirit that Paul addressed to the church at Galatia, a community that had several of its members wondering whether to stay or leave, Bennett and Nussbaum offer sage reflections about what it means to be led into and out of Christian communions.
