✏The Struggle for Understanding Book Summary : An in-depth look at Elie Wiesel’s writings, from his earliest works to his final novels. Elie Wiesel (1928–2016) was one of the most important literary voices to emerge from the Holocaust. The Nazis took the lives of most of his family, destroyed the community in which he was raised, and subjected him to ghettoization, imprisonment in Auschwitz and Buchenwald, and a death march. It is remarkable not only that Wiesel survived and found a way to write about his experiences, but that he did so with elegance and profundity. His novels grapple with questions of tradition, memory, trauma, madness, atrocity, and faith. The Struggle for Understanding examines Wiesel’s literary, religious, and cultural roots and the indelible impact of the Holocaust on his storytelling. Grouped in sections on Hasidic origins, the role of the Other, theology and tradition, and later works, the chapters cover the entire span of Wiesel’s career. Books analyzed include the novels Dawn, The Forgotten, The Gates of the Forest, The Town Beyond the Wall, The Testament, The Time of the Uprooted, The Sonderberg Case, and Hostage, as well as his memoir, Night. What emerges is a portrait of Wiesel’s work in its full literary richness. “This is a marvelous collection. The essays are written by a new generation of scholars who have probed Elie Wiesel’s work deeply and used the manifest tools of their many disciplines to explore some of the most pressing questions relating to the Holocaust, to memory, and to Wiesel himself. I was deeply impressed.” — Michael Berenbaum, American Jewish University

✏Elie Wiesel Book Summary : This work focuses on the faith pilgrimage of a holocaust survivor. ""Elie Wiesel: A Religious Biography"" argues that Wiesel's religious faith is the driving force behind Wiesel's status as a moral authority - that he is essentially a generative religious personality, a poet-prophet - who deepened his own particular Jewish vision to eventually become a 'link' with humanity. In time, he begins to identify with the oppressed the world over in a stance of universalizing faith. As a religious genius and spiritual innovator of the post-modern era, Wiesel is a conflicted individual who joins his own personal and existential struggle for meaning and identity with the quest of the oppressed after the Holocaust. Through a social-scientific methodology similar to that of Erikson and Fowler, one sees Wiesel as a genuine 'homo religiosus' in quest of a universalizing perspective. Likewise through the work of Walter Brueggemann on the 'poet-prophet', Wiesel's literary code is described as that of Jeremiah: 'shattering', 'evoking', and 'enacting'. Indeed, Wiesel has followed the code of Jeremiah ben Hilkiah. Wiesel's early writing 'shattered' the Western conception of normalcy. His work 'evoked' a world that a later generation could not imagine, yet he eventually began to 'evoke' a new way of being religious in the post-modern world. The final aspect of his 'poetics' is his praxis orientation of 'enacting' - the living out of his faith - that has pushed him to travel to the jungles and ghettoes of the world to identify with the oppressed the world over. An encounter with Wiesel presents the possibility that the world has now become Jewish, in Wiesel's terms, now solidarity must be extended to oppressed persons everywhere.

You see how it goes. We find ourselves longing for someone or something that is not. Is it because we do not know how to love? Karens story may cause you to reconsider what love really is.

✏All Rivers Run Free Book Summary : 'Raw, passionate, hallucinatory. Reading All Rivers Run Free was to be lured by an edgy siren voice of fierce womanhood' Rachel Holmes A woman on the edge of the sea finds a girl on the edge of life. Brittle but not yet broken, Ia Pendilly ekes out a fierce life in a caravan on the coast of Cornwall. In years of living with Bran - her embattled, battering cousin and common law husband - she's never yet had her own baby. So when she discovers the waif washed up on the shore, Ia takes the risk and rescues her. And the girl, in turn, will rescue something in Ia - bringing back a memory she's lost, giving her the strength to escape, and leading her on a journey downriver. It will take her into the fringes of a society she's shunned, collapsed around its own isolation. It will take her through a valley ravaged by floods, into a world not too far from reckoning. It will take her in search of her sister, and the dark remembrance of their parting. It will take her, break her, remake her, in the shapes of freedom. Natasha Carthew is a startling new voice from beyond the limits of common urban experience. She tells a tale of marginalisation and motherhood in prose that crashes like waves on rocks; rough, breathless and beautiful.

✏Gravity Book Summary : A history of gravity, and a study of its importance and relevance to our lives, as well as its influence on other areas of science. Physicists will tell you that four forces control the universe. Of these, gravity may the most obvious, but it is also the most mysterious. Newton managed to predict the force of gravity but couldn't explain how it worked at a distance. Einstein picked up on the simple premise that gravity and acceleration are interchangeable to devise his mind-bending general relativity, showing how matter warps space and time. Not only did this explain how gravity worked – and how apparently simple gravitation has four separate components – but it predicted everything from black holes to gravity's effect on time. Whether it's the reality of anti-gravity or the unexpected discovery that a ball and a laser beam drop at the same rate, gravity is the force that fascinates.

✏Holocaust Fiction Book Summary : Examining the controversies that have accompanied the publication of novels representing the Holocaust, this compelling book explores such literature to analyze their violently mixed receptions and what this says about the ethics and practice of millennial Holocaust literature. The novels examined, including some for the first time, are: * Time's Arrow by Martin Amis * The White Hotel by D.M. Thomas * The Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinski * Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally * Sophie's Choice by William Styron * The Hand that Signed the Paper by Helen Darville. Taking issue with the idea that the Holocaust should only be represented factually, this compelling book argues that Holocaust fiction is not only legitimate, but an important genre that it is essential to accept. In a growing area of interest, Sue Vice adds a new, intelligent and contentious voice to the key debates within Holocaust studies.
