Those Distant Shores Book Excerpt:

“Distant Shores” can mean various things. Literally, distant shores refer to one’s travel destinations. Figuratively, they represent human desires, ambitions, or goals. But “distant shores” also stand for the human yearning, imbedded in everyone, for final fulfillment. Such yearning makes human beings fundamentally restless. This work is about all of these forms of restlessness. In story form, it explores a fundamental philosophical theme: human transcendence. The narrative follows the life-journeys of three Filipino boyhood friends who had different ambitions in, and dreams about, life. A parallel story of another young man from Spain, who is coming to grips with his father's philosophical views on life, links up with one of these Filipinos during a trip to Ireland. As the four characters’ respective and very different narratives unfold, their dialogues develop and their reflections deepen, one is caught up in the challenges they have had to face, the goals they have achieved, and the failures and successes they have encountered. In different, and at times unexpected, ways they illustrate the restlessness of human nature itself.

Distant Shores Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Hannah examines whether love and commitment are enough to sustain a marriage when two people who have put their individual dreams on ice get a chance to defrost them . . . in fast-moving prose punctuated by snappy asides.”—People Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built a family. From a distance, their lives look picture perfect. But after the girls leave home, Jack and Elizabeth quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job, Elizabeth puts her own needs aside to follow him across the country. Then tragedy turns Elizabeth’s world upside down. In the aftermath, she questions everything about her life—her choices, her marriage, even her long-forgotten dreams. In a daring move that shocks her husband, friends, and daughters, she lets go of the woman she has become—and reaches out for the woman she wants to be.

The Distant Shore Book Excerpt:

In this sequel to his bestselling The Men Inside: Chronicles of a Modern Mariner, George Phillipos delves again with perspicacity and insight into the emotions and lives of men who have worked at sea. Crafted from anecdotes and events that the author heard when he was employed as a sea-going engineer, this collection includes stories of loss, love, betrayal, and the power games that afflict sea-going men and their families, people who are constantly forced to bridge the space between two very different worlds. A boy coping with the death of his father at sea, a young man forced to give up his brilliant career because of an injury, a sea-going engineer's wife who discovers in a strange land the truth about her husband...in these stories George Phillipos weaves with subtlety and delicate emotiveness tales that are in turn disturbing, poignant and inspirational.

Life Is a Journey Not a Race Book Excerpt:

Life presents us with challenges as well as opportunities. It confronts us with obstacles as we journey on, but it also offers us various pathways and routes that we can take. Comparing our life-journey to the travels we make in life, this book is an invitation to readers to face up to those challenges and to meet them through a series of reflections called “comma-moments”: the chance to “stop momentarily and mull things over,” or to “create space in time” as they go about the business of living from day to day. Like commas in a sentence, which help us to read and interpret its meaning properly, a life punctuated with short reflective breaks enables us to draw out its meaning and significance. Drawing on his vast educational background and diverse global travels, the author shares with readers some “thoughts for food” while on our life-journeys. These reflections, as well as anecdotes and stories, also avail themselves of the real-life experiences of others and the wisdom of many contemporary voices and historical figures throughout the world, especially those who have been concerned with the kind of reflection that will help as we move on in life. In particular, it discusses a conceptual life-map to aid us navigate our way in life and to step up to its challenges.

The Distant Shores of Freedom Book Excerpt:

The Distant Shores of Freedom analyses literary works in English written by Vietnamese refugees in the US. Fiction and memoirs by Vietnamese Americans recover stories and memories that are often different from mainstream American ones and that difference enables readers to think of the US war in Vietnam from perspectives that are missing in mainstream representations. Dwelling not only on the war and its aftermaths, Vietnamese American writings also ponder over the existential issues of exile; the idea of home; the pain of marginality and racism; the question of community formation within the US; and the complexity of diasporic lives. Subarno Chattarji raises critical questions such as who gets to speak and write, and to what ends and purposes? Who reads Vietnamese American writings and how can we account for these publications in the US over a period of time? What can and cannot be written or spoken? What is remembered and what is silenced? What traumas and memories are articulated? These questions point towards a larger context of diaspora studies as well as 'the rituals of cultural memory' that complicate our understanding of the Vietnam War and its aftermaths.

Is Your Inner Person Okay Book Excerpt:

These are the questions on the minds of people. Who is the Spirit, and what role does he play in my life daily? What do I get if I pay attention to him? And who is Satan and what role does he play in my life? God (the Spirit) wants us to prosper. How will his instructions concerning wealth change my life? Is it wise to make double payments on loans? How quickly can I deplete my retirement account? Is divorce a spiritual curveball? Why does divorce rate go up even as the number of marriage counselors and books on marriage go up? Where do people go after they finish their work and transition to the next life? How can we achieve happiness? The Spirit has the answers. When we are short on answers to any questions, we turn to science if the questions relate to the physical world. But we go to the source of all wisdom and knowledge if science is inadequate. The Spirit is the source of all things, seen or unseen, including health, wisdom, understanding, and material abundance. Dr. Eddie A. U. Akpan writes about the interconnections among humans, God, and Satan. He is the author of the book Every Soul Belongs To God. He is a petroleum engineer and also holds a PhD in electrical engineering. He spent eight years in the United States Army; worked for NASA for twelve years; and taught in the university for many years. His aim in this book is to elucidate the work of the spiritual principalities, and how they work in our inner being. God wants us to prosper, Satan is happy when we are hurting; they work in opposition. We are physical and spiritual systems. Signals we receive from these principalities are our inputs. Our thoughts and deeds are our outputs. Consequently, God and Satan use human beings to engender the events we see in the world.

Margot Hart travels to Ireland to write a biography of the famous Deverill family. She knows she must speak to the current Lord Deverill, JP, if she is to uncover the secrets of the past.

What she never expected was to form a close bond with JP and be drawn into his family disputes. Shouldering the blame for running up debts that forced him to sell the family castle, JP is isolated and vulnerable. With help from his handsome son Colm, it seems as though Margot might be the only one who can restore JP’s fortunes.

Dreams of the Burning Child Book Excerpt:

In Dreams of the Burning Child, David Lee Miller explores the uncanny persistence of filial sacrifice as a motif in English literature and its classical and biblical antecedents. He combines strikingly original reinterpretations of the Aeneid, Hamlet, The Winter's Tale, and Dombey and Son with perceptive accounts of dreams found in memoirs, poems, and psychoanalytic texts. Miller looks closely at the grisly fantasy of the sacrifice of sons as it is depicted in classical epic, early modern drama, the nineteenth-century novel, the postcolonial novel, the lyric, the funeral elegy, sacred scriptures, and psychoanalytic theory. He also draws examples from painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture into a witty and engaging discussion that ranges from the binding of Isaac to Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart, and from questions of literary history to the dilemmas of patriarchal masculinity.
