Winner of the Ohioana Book Award in Poetry (2014) Drunk on the sun and the sea, Kazim Ali’s new poems swoop linguistically but ground themselves vividly in the daily and real. Both imprisoned by endlessness and dependent on it for nurturing and care, in Sky Ward Ali goes further than ever before in sounding out the spaces between music and silence, between sky and ocean, between human and eternal. “Daily I wish stitched here to live,” moans his Prometheus, wondering what release from familiar bondage might actually portend. “So long liberation,” his Icarus sings as he plummets from the sky with desperation and grace, ready to unfeather and plunge into the everything-new. Whether in the extended poem-prayer to Alice Coltrane or in the “deleted scenes” and “alternate endings” to his critically acclaimed volume Bright Felon, or in the spirit-infused and multi-faceted lyrics he has become known for, Ali once again reinvents possibilities for the personal lyric and narrative.

For a generation, scholarship on the Reconstruction era has rightly focused on the struggles of the recently emancipated for a meaningful freedom and defined its success or failure largely in those terms. In The Ordeal of the Reunion, Mark Wahlgren Summers goes beyond this vitally important question, focusing on Reconstruction's need to form an enduring Union without sacrificing the framework of federalism and republican democracy. Assessing the era nationally, Summers emphasizes the variety of conservative strains that confined the scope of change, highlights the war's impact and its aftermath, and brings the West and foreign policy into an integrated narrative. In sum, this book offers a fresh explanation for Reconstruction's demise and a case for its essential successes as well as its great failures. Indeed, this book demonstrates the extent to which the victors' aims in 1865 were met--and at what cost. Summers depicts not just a heroic, tragic moment with equal rights advanced and then betrayed but a time of achievement and consolidation, in which nationhood and emancipation were placed beyond repeal and the groundwork was laid for a stronger, if not better, America to come.

Ich finde mich ganz o. k., bis auf meine Nase, die ist furchtbar, die werde ich mir wohl irgendwann operieren lassen. Ich habe einen Freund - oder zumindest so was Ähnliches. Und dann habe ich noch einen Aktenkoffer mit 96.000 Dollar in kleinen Scheinen, einer Knarre und einem Notizbuch mit belastendem Beweismaterial. Was ich nicht mehr habe, sind meine Eltern und mein kleiner Bruder. Sie sind verschwunden - und ich schwöre, ich hole sie zurück! Sara Jane Rispoli freut sich auf ihren sechzehnten Geburtstag. Und ein Date hat sie auch schon, mit dem unwiderstehlichen Max. Doch dann verläuft der grosse Tag etwas anders als geplant: Ihre Eltern und ihr kleiner Bruder verschwinden. Und sie selbst wird von einem maskierten Mann angegriffen. Jede andere würde vor lauter Angst jetzt den Kopf verlieren - nicht so Sara Jane.
