How Far the Mountain Sunstone Press

"How Far The Mountain" is the story of a man, a woman, and a mountain. The woman, from the city, must go to the mountain to discover who she is after her husband's death from cancer. The man, a cowboy, must force himself to go to the mountain and make a shrine from the bones of 'Texas Lady,' the horse his wife was riding when she was killed by lightning. The mountain is only a mountain but, in itself, is the creator of stories more profound than any two peoples' needs. The woman, after her husband's death, is thrown into a world she does not understand. She forces herself to go alone to the mountain in an attempt to chase away the loneliness that tugs at the corners of her heart. The man has spent his life guiding people into the mountains. Now lost, after the mountain has killed his wife, and accompanied by his dog, Gypsy, he returns to the mountain to try and rid himself of the demons that control his every moment. The man and woman both have needs and desires, but life has destroyed their dreams. They both are desperately seeking love but they are afraid to reach out, fearing if they find love it will only end in another tragedy. The man and woman, unknown to each other, start from opposite sides of the mountain toward the same meadow. It is only by chance they see each other in the distance--one waves but one ignores it, afraid of the warmth from a wave. During the man and woman's exodus the mountain spins its history: stories of its beginning, tales of miners, trees so large they touch the heavens, Indians, outlaws, gamblers, dreamers, great bears, thundering storms, bones and circling ravens. "How Far The Mountain" is a quest for the human spirit and a tribute to the earth's healing magic. A novel that will leave you warm and knowing that no matter what tragedy life brings, there is always hope. ROBERT K. SWISHER JR. has been a ranch foreman and a mountain guide. He knows the outdoors and western history, and has successfully combined these interests in stories, poems and novels. He is also the author of "The Land," "Fatal Destiny," "Only Magic," "The Last Narrow Gauge Train Robbery," "Last Day In Paradise" and "Love Lies Bleeding," all from Sunstone Press. Of "The Land," "Publishers Weekly" said: "If there were a category of historical romances written for men, this moving novel would fit the bill."

Short History Of The Girl Next Door Random House

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking, this unrequited love story will appeal to fans of Jennifer Niven, John Green, and Jesse Andrews. Seriously, how can you see a person nearly every day of your life and never think a thing of it, then all of a sudden, one day, it's different? You see that goofy grin a thousand times and just laugh. But goofy grin #1,001 nearly stops your heart? Right. That sounds like a bad movie already. Matt Wainwright is constantly sabotaged by the overdramatic movie director in his head. He can't tell his best friend, Tabby, how he really feels about her, he implodes on the JV basketball team, and the only place he feels normal is in Mr. Ellis's English class, discussing the greatest fart scenes in literature and writing poems about pissed-off candy-cane lumberjacks. If this were a movie, everything would work out perfectly. Tabby would discover that Matt's madly in love with her, be overcome with emotion, and would fall into his arms. Maybe in the rain. But that's not how it works. Matt watches Tabby get swept away by senior basketball star and all-around great guy Liam Branson. Losing Tabby to Branson is bad enough, but screwing up and losing her as a friend is even worse. After a tragic accident, Matt finds himself left on the sidelines, on the verge of spiraling out of control and losing everything that matters to him. From debut author Jared Reck comes a fiercely funny and heart-wrenching novel about love, longing, and what happens when life as you know it changes in an instant. "This story broke my heart and made me laugh and gave me hope-and really, what more can you ask of a book than that? I loved it, and I have a feeling you will too." -Jennifer E. Smith, author of Windfall and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight "In the blink of an eye, A Short History of the Girl Next Door goes from hilarious to haunting to harrowing to heartbreaking to hopeful and back. You'll never be sure exactly what kind of tears you're crying. The riotously funny and achingly authentic voice of this gorgeous coming-of-age story will break your heart, but have no fear: it will piece it back together with the glue of love, hope, and humor, and it will be stronger than before." -Jeff Zentner, award-winning author of The Serpent King and Goodbye Days "A Short History of the Girl Next Door is a study in paradoxes. It's laced with both sarcasm and yearning; it's spit-out-your-drink funny and empty-the-tissue-box sad. Sharp, smart, and unforgettable, this book will make you want to drive down the court, basketball thudding from your hand, both glad and heartbroken to be alive." -Kate Hattemer, critically acclaimed author of The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy and The Land of 10,000 Madonnas "A powerful novel about first love, the intimacy of childhood friendships, and moving forward from loss, after unexpected tragedy strikes. Reck's novel is sure to provoke reflection about finding meaning amid life's unforeseeable tragedies."-Publishers Weekly "Pair this with other novels that explore loss from a male perspective, such as Jeff Zetner's Goodbye Days or Adam Silvera's History is All You Left Me."-Booklist "Reck gives subtlety and depth to Matt, so he's believable as a flawed guy negotiating his way through his feelings for Tabby as well as his social status in school, his ideas of masculinity, and his insecurities."--The Bulletin

I Confess Lightning Source UK Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Throughout his remarkable life, Richard Sipe has followed one simple yet demanding dictum: Tell the truth. He has done so as a priest, a mental health clinician, and a writer exploring the trials of celibacy and the tragedy of child sexual abuse. Today, Sipe is best known for his work with clergy who molest children. His research guided the Boston Globe Spotlight Team in its Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. And he is an oracular presence in "Spotlight," the hit movie about the Globe's groundbreaking work. But in "I Confess" Sipe takes an unexpected turn, yielding to an inner muse to find a separate truth that is at once deeply personal and profoundly universal. In poems of love, loss, grief and renewal, Sipe assesses his life and his struggle with Catholicism. With an open heart and a keen intellect, he reveals the isolation and loneliness that come with priestly celibacy and a life of contemplation. He explores the cost of rebellion, and the joy of love and personal awakening. And he confronts the religious teachings of his youth, taking readers on a searing quest for identity - through bondage, struggle, liberation, and finally to the hard-earned peace that can only come with knowledge of the self. -Michael Rezendes, Boston Globe I Confess is..."A worthy example of applied self-reflection, that desire to find the words for complicated internal contentions and transformations, with some startling imagery that lingers long after the book is closed ..." -Judith Vida-Spence, M.D. American Journal of Psychoanalysis, Section Editor: On the Arts Anyone reading Richard Sipe's I Confess will be delighted, informed, and uplifted by his reflections and his poetry. From priesthood to layman, to husband, to father, his thoughts deepen one's appreciation for the complexities of life, for the need and role of personal therapy, for the range of sexual feelings that help humanize us, including, finally, his reflections on our final moments. I recommend Sipe's life journal. He is honest to his experiences... some of his imagery is haunting. -Gerald J. Gargiulo, PhD Psychoanalyst, poet, author of Broken Fathers/Broken Sons and Quantum Psychoanalysis.

Comprised of short, intuitive snapshots of the world in and around author Jason Green's life, "Salty Water Flowing on Flowers" is a short collection of inspirational poems.

These fragmentary thoughts and conversational pieces speak to the hearts of us all, whether we struggle with the loss of a dear friend or the overwhelming feelings of helplessness we endure through tragedy.

Take a moment to muse upon Green's verses and immerse yourself in the evocative world of days past and present. "Salty Water Flowing on Flowers" will enrich your life through the power of the written word.

Niewątpliwą zaletą Przewodnika jest to, że jego Autorzy przekonująco pokazują, iż wiele problemów tradycyjnej filozofii zostało w wieku XX i XXI podjętych i opracowanych na nowo, głównie dzięki temu, że filozofia analityczna potrafiła przezwyciężyć swoje antymetafizyczne nastawienie. Dodatkowo Autorzy umiejętnie łączą tradycję kontynentalną z analityczną, by w ten sposób zaznaczyć unikalną wartość metafizyki jako dyscypliny uniwersalnej.Redaktor tomu: Sebastian Tomasz KołodziejczykKsiążka, którą łaskawy Czytelnik obecnie otrzymuje, jest świadectwem zainteresowań metafizycznych młodszego pokolenia filozofów polskich. Ich inspiracje są różne, łączy ich jednak fascynacja problematyką metafizyczną i rzetelność w jej podejmowaniu.

Commentary on Propertius, Book 3 Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The most passionate, individual, and controversial of the Latin love elegists, Propertius in Book 3 covers a broad range of subject matter and a vast geographical reach. After books focused on his mistress Cynthia, he maintains his elegiac role but expands his range to provide a lover's commentary on life, discussing luxury, nudity, art, the empire, and the dangers of travel for profit and war. This detailed commentary uses the text recently published in the Oxford Classical Texts series, and sets out to build on the richness of the material in the book by providing clear introductions to the genres the poems explore - the Greek elegy of Callimachus, epic, tragedy, hymn and epigram - and to topics such as patronage, philosophy, and the images of love as slavery and as warfare.
