Growing up in a very small city of Natchitoches, Louisiana, the oldest one in the Louisiana Purchase, author, Bonita Grace Moses, was not only the youngest sibling but also the only girl, along with four brothers, born to Elena Moses. She was reared by her mother and her grandmother, Georgiana Moses, in a small three-room house.

This memoir narrates how Mama Shug quit school at age seven to care for her siblings, but she instilled the importance of a good education in her grandchildren. Full of wisdom, Moses’ grandmother also preached how faith in the Lord was central to life. She was a woman who lived what she practiced. A testament to the strength, tenacity, spirituality, and love of Mama Shug, this memoir describes the life of one woman who paved the way and provided an important foundation helping her grandchildren achieve success.

“These essays are not about Chocolate Hills and the tarsiers and the fancy beach clubs and other tourist magnets in Bohol. They are about seemingly mundane things that define a place and bind its people together—childhood games, songs, religious rituals, cultural practices, superstitions and myths, magical creatures. Here you will read about triumphs that united people in pride, disasters that drew them even closer; larger-than-life heroes and everyday heroes; changes that tested their mettle and inspired new ways of seeing as well as values that have endured; cracks in the pavements that mirrored cracks in relationships. Braiding storytelling with fictional devices, the writers merge reportage with self-reflection; weave patterns out of chaos and happenstances; and create a tapestry of memories that restores the past, turning the Bohol they love into the Bohol we love as well.” — Susan Lara

The Author was among the first to respond to Kitchener’s call for volunteers in 1914. He joined 8th Battalion, The Leicestershire Regiment at the outbreak of war as a Private and, within weeks, he and the Battalion were heading for Northern France with the British Expeditionary Force. In this superb memoir we see how the spirit of adventurous patriotism that carried him to war gradually turns to sober reflection as the fighting intensifies and he loses so many friends and comrades at the Battles of the Somme and the Marne. In 1917 he is commissioned into the Royal Sussex Regiment and makes a long, hazardous journey to Egypt to join his new battalion only to be recalled to take part in the Second Battle of the Marne, where his leadership and bravery win him the Croix de Guerre. Written with great modesty and insight, Dick Read’s account contains a wealth of graphic descriptions of his experiences over the whole period of The Great War including the Somme 1916, Hindenburg Line, Egypt, Flanders and the Final Advance. The book is further enhanced by the inclusion of excellent drawings by the Author himself. Many memoirs will be published to commemorate the Centenary of ‘the War to end all Wars’ but it can be said with confidence that Of Those We Loved is unlikely to be bettered. It makes for gripping reading both at home and as a companion on any visit to the Battlefields. Refined over the years, but retaining a rare sense of authenticity, this is a moving personal record of a survivor’s war and a profoundly moving epitaph for a lost generation.

Must We Kill The Thing We Love

William Rothman argues that the driving force of Hitchcock's work was his struggle to reconcile the dark vision of his favorite Oscar Wilde quote, "Each man kills the thing he loves," with the quintessentially American philosophy, articulated in Emerson's writings, that gave classical Hollywood movies of the New Deal era their extraordinary combination of popularity and artistic seriousness. A Hitchcock thriller could be a comedy of remarriage or a melodrama of an unknown woman, both Emersonian genres, except for the murderous villain and godlike author, Hitchcock, who pulls the villain's strings—and ours. Because Hitchcock believed that the camera has a murderous aspect, the question "What if anything justifies killing?," which every Hitchcock film engages, was for him a disturbing question about his own art. Tracing the trajectory of Hitchcock's career, Rothman discerns a progression in the films' meditations on murder and artistic creation. This progression culminates in Marnie (1964), Hitchcock's most controversial film, in which Hitchcock overcame his ambivalence and fully embraced the Emersonian worldview he had always also resisted. Reading key Emerson passages with the degree of attention he accords to Hitchcock sequences, Rothman discovers surprising affinities between Hitchcock's way of thinking cinematically and the philosophical way of thinking Emerson's essays exemplify. He finds that the terms in which Emerson thought about reality, about our "flux of moods," about what it is within us that never changes, about freedom, about America, about reading, about writing, and about thinking are remarkably pertinent to our experience of films and to thinking and writing about them. He also reflects on the implications of this discovery, not only for Hitchcock scholarship but also for film criticism in general.

In Anything We Love Can Be Saved, Alice Walker writes about her life as an activist, in a book rich in the belief that the world is saveable, if only we will act. Speaking from her heart on a wide range of topics--religion and the spirit, feminism and race, families and identity, politics and social change--Walker begins with a moving autobiographical essay in which she describes her own spiritual growth and roots in activism. She goes on to explore many important private and public issues: being a daughter and raising one, dreadlocks, banned books, civil rights, and gender communication. She writes about Zora Neale Hurston and Salman Rushdie and offers advice to Bill Clinton. Here is a wise woman's thoughts as she interacts with the world today, and an important portrait of an activist writer's life. NOTE: This edition does not include photographs.
