Book Memories in the Drift Description/Summary:

Melissa Payne, bestselling author of The Secrets of Lost Stones, returns with another haunting and hopeful novel about redemption, the power of memory, and a woman's will to reclaim her life. My name is Claire. I'm thirty-six years old. It's September. I know what I'm doing and why I am here...for now. Ten years ago, Claire Hines lost her unborn child--and her short-term memory--following a heartrending tragedy. With notebooks, calendars, to-do lists, fractured pieces of the past, and her father's support, Claire makes it through each day, hour by hour, with relative confidence. She also has a close-knit community of friends in the remote Alaskan town where she teaches guitar to the local children. It's there, in the reminders. As determined as Claire is to regain all that's disappeared, she'd prefer to live without some memories of her before life--especially those of her mother, Alice, who abandoned her, and Tate, the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart. But when Alice and Tate return from the past, there'll be so much more for Claire to relive. And to discover for the very first time. Through healing, forgiveness, and second chances, Claire may realize that what's most important might not be re-creating the person she was, but embracing the possibilities of being the person she is.

Release : 2013-07-30
Category : Fiction
ISBN : 9780385679183


Book A Marker to Measure Drift Description/Summary:

Alexander Maksik's electrifying novel tracks a woman's journey from the horrors of Charles Taylor's Liberia to abject poverty and self-exile on a Greek island, where she must grapple with a haunted past and find a way back into human society. On an island somewhere in the Aegean, Jacqueline, a young Liberian woman, veers between starvation and satiety, between the brutality of her past and the precarious uncertainty of her present in the aftermath of experiences so unspeakable that she prefers homeless numbness to the psychological confrontation she knows is inevitable. Hypnotic, highly sensual, exquisitely written, and extraordinary in its depiction of both pleasure and pain, of excruciating physical and spiritual hungers, A Marker to Measure Drift is a novel about memory, how we live with what we know, and whether and how we go forward, intact and whole, after the ravages of loss. It is beautiful, lacerating, impossible to put down. A breakthrough work from a prodigiously gifted young writer.

Memories That Smell Like Gasoline

Author : David Wojnarowicz
Publisher : Open Road Media
Release : 2014-06-03
Category : Biography & Autobiography
ISBN : 9781480489622


Book Memories That Smell Like Gasoline Description/Summary:

Autobiographical stories and drawings by the artist and AIDS activist featured in the new documentary by Chris McKim. For most of his life, David Wojnarowicz considered himself the ultimate outsider and a true invisible man. “I’m a blank spot in a hectic civilization,” he writes in this fierce and unforgettable collection of four blistering autobiographical pieces, illustrated with his own arresting ink drawings. Wojnarowicz, who died of AIDS in New York City at the age of thirty-seven, left behind a body of work that was staggering in its variety and originality. Painter, writer, photographer, performance artist, and filmmaker, he made an indelible mark on virtually every stage of the national arts scene. Yet nowhere does his anger, love, or compassion show itself as strongly as in his writing, which earned a Lambda Literary Award and prompted critics to call him the Jack Kerouac of his generation. The horrors of Wojnarowicz’s past inform his literature—his years spent as a child prostitute and living homeless on the New York streets, his outspoken, very public battle against the disease that would eventually take his life, and the entrenched government bureaucracy that sat by and did nothing. The world as seen through Wojnarowicz’s eyes in these four masterful short works is stark, cruel, and cold—and yet gloriously alive, ennobled by surprising acts of heartrending humanity. Memories That Smell Like Gasoline is a celebration of sorts: of sex, of love, of art, and of having truly lived.

Book Memories Are an Old Man's Toys Description/Summary:

When our mortality is dancing on the horizon, our thoughts have the tendency to drift to the type of legacy we will leave behind. Some will leave wealthy estates while others will leave voids in the hearts of those who loved them. Billy will leave a little of both but neither will be his legacy. You see, it will be what Billy chooses to take with him rather then what he leaves behind that will define him as a man. EXCERPT I originally planned to time the launch of my software within the next twelve months because I wanted to witness the chaos. I know, I know this all sounds so vengeful but that was how I was feeling. Then after reading my mom's writing I asked myself what my real motivation was if I were to remove revenge from the equation. I still wanted to teach people a lesson but I decided it didn't have to be a lesson born of rage. Once I weeded through all of the hurt feelings, fears and resentment I was left with one common denominator. With the exception of my parents I grew up feeling ignored and dismissed. With that I realized that I had the ability, if only for a short period of time, to remove the platform that too often isolates us. I guess I simply want the world to slow down for a moment, look up from their devices and see the beauty that surrounds them. I want the moms to put down the phone and push their child on a swing. I want the dads to put down their phones and just throw a ball to their kids.

An Alchemy of Mind

Author : Diane Ackerman
Publisher : Simon and Schuster
Release : 2012-10-30
Category : Science
ISBN : 9781439125083


Book An Alchemy of Mind Description/Summary:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Zookeeper's Wife, an ambitious and enlightening work that combines an artist's eye with a scientist's erudition to illuminate, as never before, the magic and mysteries of the human mind. Long treasured by literary readers for her uncommon ability to bridge the gap between art and science, celebrated scholar-artist Diane Ackerman returns with the book she was born to write. Her dazzling new work, An Alchemy of Mind, offers an unprecedented exploration and celebration of the mental fantasia in which we spend our days—and does for the human mind what the bestselling A Natural History of the Senses did for the physical senses. Bringing a valuable female perspective to the topic, Diane Ackerman discusses the science of the brain as only she can: with gorgeous, immediate language and imagery that paint an unusually lucid and vibrant picture for the reader. And in addition to explaining memory, thought, emotion, dreams, and language acquisition, she reports on the latest discoveries in neuroscience and addresses controversial subjects like the effects of trauma and male versus female brains. In prose that is not simply accessible but also beautiful and electric, Ackerman distills the hard, objective truths of science in order to yield vivid, heavily anecdotal explanations about a range of existential questions regarding consciousness, human thought, memory, and the nature of identity.
