Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Haigh returns to the Pennsylvania town at the center of her iconic novel Baker Towers in this ambitious, achingly human story of modern America and the conflicting forces at its heart—a bold, moving drama of hope and desperation, greed and power, big business and small-town families. Forty years ago, Bakerton coal fueled the country. Then the mines closed, and the town wore away like a bar of soap. Now Bakerton has been granted a surprise third act: it sits squarely atop the Marcellus Shale, a massive deposit of natural gas. To drill or not to drill? Prison guard Rich Devlin leases his mineral rights to finance his dream of farming. He doesn’t count on the truck traffic and nonstop noise, his brother’s skepticism or the paranoia of his wife, Shelby, who insists the water smells strange and is poisoning their frail daughter. Meanwhile his neighbors, organic dairy farmers Mack and Rena, hold out against the drilling—until a passionate environmental activist disrupts their lives. Told through a cast of characters whose lives are increasingly bound by the opposing interests that underpin the national debate, Heat and Light depicts a community blessed and cursed by its natural resources. Soaring and ambitious, it zooms from drill rig to shareholders’ meeting to the Three Mile Island nuclear reactor to the ruined landscape of the “strippins,” haunting reminders of Pennsylvania’s past energy booms. This is a dispatch from a forgotten America—a work of searing moral clarity from one of the finest writers of her generation, a courageous and necessary book.

On average, each American throws away a staggering one ton of trash every year. Most of that trash will reach a dead end in a landfill, taking up space and polluting the earth. We can all make an effort to live a life less trashy by recycling, reusing, and being smart about what we buy. But what can we do with the trash we do make? Cities all over the world are making their trash work for them by turning it into energy. In waste-to-energy power plants, trash is burned in a controlled way to generate electricity while keeping it out of the landfill. Even landfilled trash can be used to generate energy, if we harness the gas released when garbage breaks down. Turning trash into energy is a practical way to help our landfills last longer and reduce our need for polluting energy from coal and oil. Tell your parents!

Jeden Sommer ihrer Kindheit hat Liz auf den Obstplantagen ihres Onkels am Eriesee verbracht. Jeden Sommer hat sie darauf gewartet, dass ihr Lieblingsbaum sich orange färben würde, lodernd von unzähligen Schmetterlingen, die sich auf ihrer Wanderung dort niederließen. Jetzt ist Liz vierzig und zurückgekehrt, um als Entomologin den Monarchenfalter zu erforschen. Doch während sie auf dem verlassenen Gut umherstreift, steigen die Erinnerungen auf: Was ist geschehen in jenem Sommer, in dem so vieles zerbrach? Wohin ist ihr Onkel verschwunden, und wäre sie glücklich geworden mit Theo, ihrer ersten großen Liebe, dem mexikanischen Jungen, mit dem sie so viel mehr verband, als sie ahnen konnte? Mit Sensibilität und Sprachmacht lässt Jane Urquhart eine Familiengeschichte und eine Landschaft derart lebendig werden, wie es wohl nur eine der ganz großen kanadischen Erzählerinnen vermag.
