In Why Iris Murdoch Matters Gary Browning draws on as yet unpublished archival material to present an unrivalled overview of Murdoch's work and thought. Browning argues for Murdoch's position amongst the key theorists of modern life, and discusses in detail her engagement with the notion of late modernity. Her multiple perspectives on art, philosophy, religion, politics and the self all relate to how she understands the nature of late modernity. Browning lucidly illustrates that through both her thought and fiction we can grasp the significance of issues that remain of paramount importance today: the possibilities of a moral life without foundations, the meaning of philosophy in a post-metaphysical age, the prospects of politics without ideological certainties and the significance of art after realism. A totally original work arguing persuasively that Iris Murdoch not only matters but is absolutely central to how we think through the contemporary age.

Literacy Matters

Literacy can empower students, but it may also limit their understanding if taught without regard for the context of their lives. Using his encounters with students, in high school, college, and state prison classrooms, as well as his own experience, Robert Yagelski looks at the sometimes ambiguous role of literacy in our lives and examines the mismatch between conventional approaches to teaching literacy and the literacy needs of students in a rapidly changing, increasingly technological world. He asserts that ultimately, the most important job of the English teacher is to reveal to students ways they can participate in the discourse that shapes their lives, and he offers a timely look at how technology has influenced the way we write and read. The scope of this fascinating book reaches beyond the classroom and offers insight about what it means to be "literate" in an economically driven, dynamic society. Addressing earlier works on the subject of literacy, as well as the ideas of theorists such as Foucault, this perceptive work has much to offer educators and anyone seeking to understand the nature of literacy itself.

“Terrifically intelligent, moving, and entertaining.” –The New York Sun “With snappy dialogue [and] intelligent prose . . . Begley paints a memorable portrait of lasting friendship and of the strength required to step outside of the expectations that surround each of us.” –Rocky Mountain News At the beginning of the 1950s, three disparate young men are thrown together as roommates at Harvard College: Henry White, a Polish-Jewish refugee who survived World War II by hiding in Poland; Archibald P. Palmer III, an Army brat; and Sam Standish, ostensibly the scion of a fine New England family who has just learned that he was adopted at birth by parents he cannot respect. Each seeks to come to terms with his identity or to remake it altogether. Henry’s task is especially daunting: He is determined to live as an American, free of the shackles of his hideous past. But reinvention is a bargain with the devil, and over the years each will find that it comes at a high cost, challenging one’s honor and loyalty to parents, friends, and ultimately oneself. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Louis Begley's Memories of a Marriage. “Absorbing . . . In full Henry James mode, Begley uses a lucid prose style to dispassionately eviscerate the upper classes even as he illuminates the true meaning of friendship.” –Booklist “The final moral crisis of Henry’s life [is] gorgeously evoked. . . . Begley’s analysis of class and anti-Semitism in America is often brilliant.” –The Washington Post Book World “A moving tale . . . [Begley’s] technique demands attention–and richly rewards it.” –The New York Observer “An elegant novel of enduring friendship.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Isolated Matters is a suspenseful thriller centered in Pacifica, California, a coastal town mere miles from the commotion of San Francisco, yet enclosed by mountain ridges and a picturesque fog that appears daily at the most opportune moments. It is a place where people go to enjoy the beauty of isolation. This is the story of one of its residents, MJ Matters, a young woman, struggling to cope with her transition from the animated life she once knew to a paralyzed one resulting from a debilitating disease. MJ's husband, Bernard Matters, cares for her like every husband should nurturing her every need while attempting to engage her in happy thoughts. In his own way, MJ's brother-in-law, Alby Matters, does what he can to offer her the comfort of a friend, visiting her often and telling her strange tales, like the one about the mysterious Gull children, which somehow eerily seem to provide her with answers to the swirl of confusion around her. As MJ searches her mind to accept the realities of her current physical state, slowly she discovers something she didn't expect someone or something horrifying is watching her, haunting her, coming closer and closer each day. Despite every attempt she makes, MJ in her immobile state is rendered powerless, preventing her from escaping the horrors she knows she is bound to encounter. Isolated Matters is told in three perspectives MJ's, Bernard's and Alby's providing the reader with insurmountable proof that each of the characters' gripping accounts are not just intertwined but bound to collide.
