»Absurd, komisch, klug, mutig und präzise. Einfach überwältigend.« Hiromi Kawakami Die literarische Sensation aus Japan: Eine Außenseiterin findet als Angestellte eines 24-Stunden-Supermarktes ihre wahre Bestimmung. Beeindruckend leicht und elegant entfaltet Sayaka Murata das Panorama einer Gesellschaft, deren Werte und Normen unverrückbar scheinen. Ein Roman, der weit über die Grenzen Japans hinausweist. Keiko Furukura ist anders. Gefühle sind ihr fremd, das Verhalten ihrer Mitmenschen irritiert sie meist. Um nirgendwo anzuecken, bleibt sie für sich. Als sie jedoch auf dem Rückweg von der Uni auf einen neu eröffneten Supermarkt stößt, einen sogenannten Konbini, beschließt sie, dort als Aushilfe anzufangen. Man bringt ihr den richtigen Gesichtsausdruck, das richtige Lächeln, die richtige Art zu sprechen bei. Keikos Welt schrumpft endlich auf ein für sie erträgliches Maß zusammen, sie verschmilzt geradezu mit den Gepflogenheiten des Konbini. Doch dann fängt Shiraha dort an, ein zynischer junger Mann, der sich sämtlichen Regeln widersetzt. Keikos mühsam aufgebautes Lebenssystem gerät ins Wanken. Und ehe sie sichs versieht, hat sie ebendiesen Mann in ihrer Badewanne sitzen. Tag und Nacht.

A Difficult Woman

The Challenging Life and Times of Lillian Hellman

Lillian Hellman was a giant of twentieth-century letters and a groundbreaking figure as one of the most successful female playwrights on Broadway. Yet the author of The Little Foxes and Toys in the Attic is today remembered more as a toxic, bitter survivor and literary fabulist, the woman of whom Mary McCarthy said, "Every word she writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the.'" In A Difficult Woman, renowned historian Alice Kessler-Harris undertakes a feat few would dare to attempt: a reclamation of a combative, controversial woman who straddled so many political and cultural fault lines of her time. Kessler-Harris renders Hellman's feisty wit and personality in all of its contradictions: as a non-Jewish Jew, a displaced Southerner, a passionate political voice without a party, an artist immersed in commerce, a sexually free woman who scorned much of the women's movement, a loyal friend whose trust was often betrayed, and a writer of memoirs who repeatedly questioned the possibility of achieving truth and doubted her memory. Hellman was a writer whose plays spoke the language of morality yet whose achievements foundered on accusations of mendacity. Above all else, she was a woman who made her way in a man's world. Kessler-Harris has crafted a nuanced life of Hellman, empathetic yet unsparing, that situates her in the varied contexts in which she moved, from New Orleans to Broadway to the hearing room of HUAC. A Difficut Woman is a major work of literary and intellectual history. This will be one of the most reviewed, and most acclaimed, books of 2012.

Please ponder a few questions for a moment. Are you happy in this season of your life? Are you burnt out and left with no hope of anything ever changing for you? Are you able to enjoy what you have presently? Does your past keep you from taking a positive step toward your future? Do you feel overwhelmed by the challenges confronting you in this season of your life?

The same is true for each season of a woman's life. She may laugh or weep, love or hate, plant or uproot during her journey. Nevertheless, she can learn to glance at her struggles, but gaze upon His sovereignty. Your time in this book will be revitalizing as you receive wisdom and encouragement for each season of your life.

With faith in God, all things are possible. That could not be truer than in the life of Alberta John-Baptiste Christian. Born in 1929 on Dominica, British West Indies, Alberta Christian’s life is literally a capsule of Caribbean history during a time of rapid change; from The Wall Street Crash in 1929 to workers and farmers rebellions from Jamaica in the north to Trinidad in the South, then World War II. The end of the war brought trade unions, more self-government, universal adult suffrage, national independence, and more rights for women, those of African descent and indigenous Carib people. From humble beginnings at Cocoa Center in the Layou Valley, to life in the village of St. Joseph in Dominica, Alberta kept striving for excellence and pushing it to the next level. From way, back, as a dutiful daughter, Alberta showed herself to be a woman of substance. Her romance and marriage to Wendell 'Papa Zafa' Christian, ex-soldier and long-time fire fighter, makes for truly delightful reading in the colonial era. Her first offspring was a special needs child, Christalin, “Christo” Christian. However, instead of relegating her as a traditional burden, Alberta devotedly nurtured 'Christo' against all odds. She instilled these same core principles into the rest of her seven children. Her first son Wellsworth became the island's first locally born veterinary doctor. Then came the rest of the 'Christian Brothers' Lawson, Samuel and Gabriel followed by the sisters Esther and Theresa, all well accomplished. Ma' Christian's civil service experience began as a voter registrar with the introduction of adult suffrage, then later as a nurse at the St Luke’s Mental Home. She made her mark as a progressive Manager of the Workshop for the Blind where she pioneered today's achievements in access for people with disabilities. A part time farmer, and committed civic leader, she was a founding member of the Dominica branch of the British Red Cross.

There are aspects of the Proverbs 31 woman in all of us. God had a clear blueprint of what He intended us to be when He created us. He was certain about His creation. His intention was in no way ambiguous. We were created with a clear place and purpose in life. We were endowed with feminine graces that enable us to bring life and sustain it. It is imperative in this day and age that we understand Gods dictates for femininity. If we are swayed by the doctrine of this world we will not only lose our way, but we will abort our destiny. God is waiting for us to take our place in Him by becoming women who He can depend on. We are made of the same stuff as the Proverbs 31 woman. The same God, using the same material to bring us into being, created us. The same substance formed us. It is time for women of God to stop living beneath their privilege. There is no woman like the woman of God, a woman of substance, strong, focused, and filled with the beauty of Christ.
