Journey Interrupted Book Excerpt:

In the midst of World War II, a German-American family finds themselves stranded in Japan in this inspiring tale of an extraordinary family adapting to the hazards of fate, and finding salvation in each other. In the spring of 1941, seven-year-old Hildegarde Ercklentz and her family leave their home in New York City and set off for their native Germany, where her father has been recalled to the headquarters of the Commerz & Privat Bank in Berlin. It was meant to be an epic journey, crossing the United States, the Pacific, and Siberia—but when Hitler invades Russia, a week-long stay in Yokohama, Japan becomes six years of quasi-detention, as Hildegarde and her family are stranded in Japan until the war’s end. In this spellbinding memoir, Mahoney recounts her family’s moving saga, from their courage in the face of terrible difficulties—including forced relocation, scarce rations, brutal winters in the Japanese Alps—to their joyous reunion with their German relatives in Hamburg, and their eventual return to New York City in 1950. Richly detailed and remarkably vivid, Journey Interrupted is a story unlike any other—the inspiring tale of an extraordinary family adapting to the hazards of fate, and finding salvation in each other.

M W Fifer M D Book Excerpt:

Who are the men who follow the men who grub for the gold? Doctor Max Fifer and his assistant Ah Chung, having departed San Francisco for a new life in the wilds of British North America, having set up a medical practice and a drug dispensary in Yale in 1858, at the height of the Fraser River gold rush, even before colonial status is proclaimed. Fifer survives the treacherous Ned McGowan's attempt to instigate an American takeover and weathers the colony's lukewarm welcome for non-British subjects. Although an American citizen, a veteran of the Mexican war, Fifer is elected Mayor of his bustling community at the head of navigation on the Fraser River. However, his good fortune is short-lived. The popular healer cannot save himself from the depression of the economic slumps nor from the demented threats of a former patient. Told through the grieving eyes of Ah Chung, over the twenty-four hours while the town awaits the hanging of the murderer of their beloved Dr. Fifer, Prophet, Healer, Fool is a surprising glimpse into the private and professional lives and the politics of forgotten pioneers of the fledgling colony of British Columbia.

Being Interrupted Book Excerpt:

Beginning with a ‘Street Nativity Play’ that didn’t end as planned, and finishing with an open-ended conversation in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, "Being Interrupted" locates an institutionally-anxious Church of England within the wider contexts of divisions of race and class in ‘the ruins of empire’, alongside ongoing gender inequalities, the marginalization of children, and catastrophic ecological breakdown. In the midst of this bleak picture, Al Barrett and Ruth Harley open a door to a creative disruption of the status quo, ‘from the outside, in’: the in-breaking of the wild reality of the ‘Kin-dom’ of God. Through careful and unsettling readings in Mark’s gospel, alongside stories from a multicultural outer estate in east Birmingham, they paint a vivid picture of an 'alternative economy' for the Church's life and mission, which begins with transformative encounters with neighbours and strangers at the edges of our churches, our neighbourhoods and our imaginations, and offers new possibilities for repentance and resurrection.

The Beautiful Novel and Strange Book Excerpt:

Originally published in 1995. In The Beautiful, Novel, and Strange, Ronald Paulson fills a lacuna in studies of aesthetics at its point of origin in England in the 1700s. He shows how aesthetics took off not only from British empiricism but also from such forms of religious heterodoxy as deism. The third earl of Shaftesbury, the founder of aesthetics, replaced the Christian God of rewards and punishments with beauty—worship of God, with a taste for a work of art. William Hogarth, reacting against Shaftesbury's "disinterestedness," replaced his Platonic abstractions with an aesthetics centered on the human body, gendered female, and based on an epistemology of curiosity, pursuit, and seduction. Paulson shows Hogarth creating, first in practice and then in theory, a middle area between the Beautiful and the Sublime by adapting Joseph Addison's category (in the Spectator) of the Novel, Uncommon, and Strange. Paulson retrieves an aesthetics that had strong support during the eighteenth century but has been obscured both by the more dominant academic discourse of Shaftesbury (and later Sir Joshua Reynolds) and by current trends in art and literary history. Arguing that the two traditions comprised not only painterly but also literary theory and practice, Paulson explores the innovations of Henry Fielding, John Cleland, Laurence Sterne, and Oliver Goldsmith, which followed and complemented the practice in the visual arts of Hogarth and his followers.

Love Bomb and the Pink Platoon Book Excerpt:

When a military experiment goes horribly wrong and turns his entire platoon gay, the deeply religious, washed-up General Newman Ginger must learn to love his platoon and himself in order to survive the spiritual, professional and actual war zone he has just entered... General Newman Ginger wants nothing more than to fall asleep each night with a bottle of whiskey and a good war story, but his life of bitter solitude is thrown into chaos when he is ordered to act as a lab rat for top secret weapons testing. The year is 1999, and a kinder, gentler army is developing non-lethal weapons to subdue enemy soldiers humanely. To avoid a court martial, General Ginger agrees to act as a test subject for one of these "soft" weapons: an aphrodisiac bomb. The bomb is supposed to sexually arouse the enemy in order to distract him on the battlefield. However, what appears to be an accidental miscalculation muddles the experiment and the bomb turns the entire makeshift platoon gay. Horrified by his new sexuality, General Ginger begs to be expelled from the platoon to return to his empty but familiar life, to ride out his remaining days in denial. Despite close ties to military brass he is remanded to top-secret barracks where the gay platoon is being held for observation and testing. As platoon members begin to develop mysterious side effects, the arch-Christian Secretary of Defense sends them on a suicide mission in the mountains of a Middle Eastern war zone, and sends warplanes to finish them off should they survive the armed militias and devastating terrain. While attempting to go AWOL, General Ginger stumbles upon the truth- there is no mission. Suddenly offered the chance to escape, and with warplanes bearing down on them, he must choose between his new gay platoon and his past as a loyal, straight, Christian soldier. Love Bomb and the Pink Platoon is the debut novel from award-winning screenwriter and filmmaker Ryan Gielen.

Climate Change Interrupted Book Excerpt:

In this moment of climate precarity, Victorian studies scholar Barbara Leckie considers the climate crisis as a problem of time. Spanning the long nineteenth century through our current moment, her interdisciplinary treatment of climate change at once rethinks time and illustrates that the time for climate action is now. Climate Change, Interrupted argues that linear, progress-inflected temporalities are not adequate to a crisis that defies their terms. Instead, this book advances a theory and practice of interruption to rethink prevailing temporal frameworks. At the same time, it models the anachronistic, time-blending, and time-layering temporality it advances. In a series of experimental chapters informed by the unlikely trio of Walter Benjamin, Donna Haraway, and Virginia Woolf, Leckie reinflects and cowrites the traditions and knowledges of the long nineteenth century and the current period in the spirit of climate action collaboration. The current moment demands as many approaches as possible, invites us to take risks, and asks scholars and activists adept at storytelling to participate in the conversation. Climate Change, Interrupted, accordingly, invests in interruption to tell a different story of the climate crisis.
