Arsic unpacks Ralph Waldo Emerson's repeated assertion that our reality and our minds are in constant flux. Her readings of a broad range of Emerson's writings are guided by a central question: what does it really mean to maintain that everything fluctuates, is relational, and so changes its identity?

Ladette Randolph understands her life best through the houses she has inhabited. From the isolated farmhouse of her childhood, to the series of houses her family occupied in small towns across Nebraska as her father pursued his dream of becoming a minister, to the equally small houses she lived in as a single mother and graduate student, houses have shaped her understanding of her place in the world and served as touchstones for a life marked by both constancy and endless cycles of change. As Randolph and her husband struggle to bring a dilapidated farmhouse on twenty acres outside Lincoln, Nebraska, back to life, Randolph reflects on the houses of her past and the stages of her life that played out in each, both painful and joyful. She simultaneously traces the contours of a life deeply shaped by the Nebraska plains, where her family has lived for generations, and how those roots helped her find the strength to overcome devastating losses as a young adult. Weaving together strands of departures and arrivals, new houses and deep roots, cycles of change and the cycles of the seasons, Leaving the Pink House is a richly layered memoir of the meaning of home and family, and how they can never really leave us, even if we leave them--Excerpted from publisher statement.

Leaving for Detroit is a three part novella that takes place in the years 1937, 1943, and 1952. The stories are about sexual promiscuity, loyalty to friends, and ideological differences. But in every case, there is a common thread that binds the stories together. They are stories of survival and the choices that the characters make in order to ensure that survival, or the loss of everything, the death of someone. Death is a common theme throughout the book, in all the stories, from The Oasis in 1934 to The Letter in 2008. The fi nal act in life is death, which takes on many different faces in these stories, from the loss of an unborn child to suicide, and to murder; and it is invariably caused by the choices people make at different times in their lives. Some characters are the victims of someone else's choice, though it can be argued that the hand of death itself is a victim. These are stories of ordinary people making choices that may be ordinary, or in some cases, extraordinary. Circumstances occur that allow people to live a long life, but in almost every circumstance there is a choice to be made. And in every choice, there lies the ever present specter of death.

This collection recounts the story of leaving America, where the author was born, and of arriving in Australia, where she did not plan to stay. It is a tale of unsettling and resettling, of leaving as an ongoing process. Each micro-scene is a snapshot of time and place – spanning decades and moments, continents and conversations, wars, dreams and kitchen tables – to capture the psychological and spatial tensions between ‘here’ and ‘there’. Leaving New Jersey is a lyrical re-experiencing of putting down roots and tearing them up, an extraordinary poetic account of an ordinary woman's quest for home. Barbara Kamler’s Leaving New Jersey is a captivating collection of prose poems. These lyrical, deeply moving poems work like sepia-tone postcards where family scenes are honed back to overheard talk, glimpsed expressions, streets and living rooms. The poems invite us, quietly, into the wistfulness and uncertainty that shadows moving from one country to another. Most importantly, the poems reveal a hard-won emotional depth and focus that is at the heart of these indelible, minimalist narratives. – Anthony Lawrence This story is full of pain and beauty. Readers with experiences of loss, separation, and the awful dilemmas of parenting will treasure it for its precise honesty. These are the sorts of stories it is difficult to write about, and it is even more difficult to bring to such stories the shaping sensibility of a poet. Barbara Kamler’s book is a triumph of honesty and artfulness. – Kevin Brophy

How to Beat Your Kids without Leaving a Mark is a testament to the most thankless job in the world raising children as a single mom. Author Liz M. Mendoza draws on her experiences as a single mother to share the nitty-gritty details of modern motherhood, from the good to the bad to the ugly, and everything in between. She explains how the birth of a child changes your life in more ways than you can ever imagine. Old desires and concerns are replaced by one all-consuming struggle to protect and nurture. Life soon becomes an endless string of sleepless nights, anxiety-filled days, and broken hearts, punctuated by rare fleeting moments of bliss. Ultimately, in her experience, parenthood becomes a contest of wills between mother and child; it was during this always-smoldering battle for supremacy where Mendoza learned how, through guile and cunning, to always stay one step ahead of her son: where she learned how to beat her son without leaving a mark.

Accosted by hatred and living out a dismal existence in Dirt Place, we humans have tried and failed to find the source of love. Many philosophies of love have proved powerless in satisfying our need for this pure and true thing. One after another, the world's religions fail to illuminate its reality and beauty. All the while, the overwhelming presence of evil has forced love into the shadows of elusiveness. But through the barrage of attempts to explain love's source, it is the Christian God alone who has brought meaning, value, and eternal significance to this oft-misunderstood virtue. It is the Christian God alone whose divine and perfect love was revealed in all its splendor in the cross of Jesus Christ. In Leaving Dirt Place, Jonah Haddad explores a multitude of philosophies and religions whose flawed accounts of love must ultimately yield to the truth of Christianity. This thoughtful and challenging apologetic presents a clear case for the true God of love.
