✏A Promise in Pieces Book Summary : After the end of World War II, Clara Kirkpatrick returns from the Women's Army Corp to deliver a dying soldier's last wishes: convey his love to his young widow, Mattie, with apologies for the missed life they had planned to share. Struggling with her own post-war trauma, Clara thinks she's not prepared to handle the grief of this broken family. Yet upon meeting Mattie, and receiving a baby quilt that will never cuddle the soldier's baby, Clara vows to honor the sacrifices that family made. Now a labor and delivery nurse in her rural hometown, Clara wraps each new babe in the gifted quilt and later stitches the child's name into the cloth. As each new child is welcomed by the quilt, Clara begins to wonder whatever happened to Mattie—and if her own life would ever experience the love of a newborn. Little does she know that she will have the opportunity to re-gift the special quilt—years later and carrying even greater significance than when it was first bestowed.

✏Poetry in Pieces Book Summary : Set against the cultural and political backdrop of interwar Europe and the Americas, Poetry in Pieces is the first major study of the Peruvian poet Cesar Vallejo (1892-1938) to appear in English in more than thirty years. Vallejo lived and wrote in two distinct settings---Peru and Paris---which were continually crisscrossed by new developments in aesthetics, politics, and practices of everyday life. Michelle Clayton combines close readings of Vallejo's writings with cultural, historical, and theoretical analysis, connecting Vallejo---and Latin American poetry---to the broader panorama of international modernism and the avant-garde, and to writers and artists such as Rainer Maria Rilke, James Joyce, Georges Bataille, and Charlie Chaplin. Poetry in Pieces sheds new light on one of the key figures in twentieth-century Latin American literature, while exploring ways of rethinking the parameters of international lyric modernity.

✏The Watchman in Pieces Book Summary : DIV Spanning nearly 500 years of cultural and social history, this book examines the ways that literature and surveillance have developed together, as kindred modern practices. As ideas about personhood—what constitutes a self—have changed over time, so too have ideas about how to represent, shape, or invade the self. The authors show that, since the Renaissance, changes in observation strategies have driven innovations in literature; literature, in turn, has provided a laboratory and forum for the way we think about surveillance and privacy. Ultimately, they contend that the habits of mind cultivated by literature make rational and self-aware participation in contemporary surveillance environments possible. In a society increasingly dominated by interlocking surveillance systems, these habits of mind are consequently necessary for fully realized liberal citizenship. /div

✏Hamlet in Pieces Book Summary : Within the space of a year, between 1995 and 1996, three highly unusual shows were produced by three celebrated figures in world theatre: Qui Est La, directed by Peter Brook, Elsinore, directed by Robert Lepage, and Hamlet: a monologue, directed by Robert Wilson. Each was a version-at least in part-of Shakespeare's Hamlet, although none of them treated the show in anything like an orthodox manner.

✏On Bits And Pieces Book Summary : Drawn from the fine insights found in biblical interpretations, literary works, films, historical contexts, contemporary trends in human experiences, and major theological themes, the author tries to connect the Sunday gospel readings to people?s lives in light of the Scriptures. He regularly makes use of literary works as a springboard or potential approach to explore the dynamics of Jesus? messages especially on human relationship and how they make sense to specific situations where it might help illuminate the issue. On bits and pieces ? along with crooked lines is a compilation of homilies that attempts to share life experiences in relation to the Word of God. It is a form of sharing that provides a perspective of opening ourselves to others on the reality of God in our respective lives. It is looking at individual?s significance vis-a-vis others where we find the wherewithal to carry on while we shape the dimension of humanity being addressed to our call of discipleship. ?If to be human is to live in community, then to alienate ourselves from community, in monologue, is to cut ourselves from our own humanity.? As Christians, our interconnectedness aims to unite us in harmony and enables us to strive more deeply for the wholeness of the person. It is implicit in our calling that we are made for others ?brothers and sisters. As Himes points out, ?Belonging, respect, friendship, forgiveness, love are essential to human well-being, but they are not easily addressed by the language and concept of rights.?

✏Not an Empty Promise Book Summary : Not an Empty Promise gives first-hand accounts of the authors experiences during her mission in war-torn Vietnam, in Indonesia, and in a ministry to Asian immigrants in California. It was a time of wonderful fulfillment of Jesus Christs promise to his followers: Lo, I am with you always Is it true? Is it possible? Is it a faithful promise? The question is worth pondering: was He there as He promised during times of serious illnesses, uncertainties, or devastating grief as well as times of blessing and joy? Author Joyce Trebilco addresses these questions as she strives to make us all more keenly aware of His presence and care, even in difficult times.
