The Road to Narrogin Book Excerpt:

Diane Brandonburg is unquestionably gifted as an artist. Beautiful, as well as talented, the spirited Brazilian is filled with the need for self-discovery. In a search that takes her far from her beloved Rio and Sao Paulo, her na and iuml;ve expectations about life lead her towards an unsettling future filled with a reality that is heartless, predatory, and so undeserving. Eventually fleeing from a series of disastrous relationships, including a bewildering, brief marriage to a wealthy playboy as his innocent and unsuspecting trophy wife, Diane finds herself hiding from the past as an assistant professor at a small university in southwestern Iowa. Though far removed from her beloved Brazil, Diane quickly finds herself attracted to the gently rolling hills of her new home, as well as the peaceful nature of the friends she finds there. It is, however, a lonely existence, as a very real fear of yet another disastrous relationship prevents her from seeking the intimate companionship she so desperately needs. But then, during and exceptionally bright and cheerful morning, she has the opportunity to notice Blaine MacGregor, a young farmer five years her junior. Blaine enters her life in the most enchanting manner, as though he might be a gift directly from the sky to her heart. Though battered emotionally, to the point of being unable to speak with him directly, she secretly pursues Blaine through a wonderful series of questioning letters and elegant paintings. This is a romantic story about a young woman's determined struggle to redeem her honor and discover a real sense of personal worth, and of the remarkable and adventurous filled road she follows to create a home for her heart in a faraway place called Narrogin.

Semantics with Assignment Variables Book Excerpt:

This pioneering study combines insights from philosophy and linguistics to develop a novel framework for theorizing about linguistic meaning and the role of context in interpretation. A key innovation is to introduce explicit representations of context - assignment variables - in the syntax and semantics of natural language. The proposed theory systematizes a spectrum of 'shifting' phenomena in which the context relevant for interpreting certain expressions depends on features of the linguistic environment. Central applications include local and non-local contextual dependencies with quantifiers, attitude ascriptions, conditionals, questions, and relativization. The result is an innovative philosophically informed compositional semantics compatible with the truth-conditional paradigm. At the forefront of contemporary interdisciplinary research into meaning and communication, Semantics with Assignment Variables is essential reading for researchers and students in a diverse range of fields.

Memoir of Half a Banana Book Excerpt:

Born in Taiwan but gone to a junior high school in America, then back to Taiwan for college, and immigrated to America again, the author paints vivid pictures of postwar Taiwan and America in the sixties, and compares the Chinese and American cultures through education systems, the business world, and life in general. The author touches on growing pains; disillusionment; the wear and tear of marriage, parenting, and relationships; challenges and betrayal in the business world; finding herself at fifty-five; and her extraordinary and otherworldly encounters. She reveals complicated Chinese cultural traditions and recounts the Second Sino-Japanese War through her father’s recollections. From working at a Buddhist organization and from taking care of her father, she comes to understand birth, aging, sickness, and death. The author considers herself “half a banana”—yellow on the outside but a bit white on the inside. Having lived in the States for forty-three years, she understands both Chinese and American cultures well and shows how the two cultures, especially the fundamental difference between them, have molded her life. Dotted with well-known Chinese sayings and anecdotes, Memoir of Half a Banana offers an interesting and truthful glimpse into the Chinese people and ideology.
