BOOK EXCERPT:

James Boggs (1919-1993) and Grace Lee Boggs (1915-2015) were two largely unsung but critically important figures in the black freedom struggle. Born and raised in Alabama, James Boggs came to Detroit during the Great Migration, becoming an automobile worker and a union activist. Grace Lee was a Chinese American scholar who studied Hegel, worked with Caribbean political theorist C. L. R. James, and moved to Detroit to work toward a new American revolution. As husband and wife, the couple was influential in the early stages of what would become the Black Power movement, laying the intellectual foundation for racial and urban struggles during one of the most active social movement periods in recent U.S. history. Stephen Ward details both the personal and the political dimensions of the Boggses' lives, highlighting the vital contributions these two figures made to black activist thinking. At once a dual biography of two crucial figures and a vivid portrait of Detroit as a center of activism, Ward's book restores the Boggses, and the intellectual strain of black radicalism they shaped, to their rightful place in postwar American history.

BOOK EXCERPT:

An irresistible story of childhood adventure from the international phenomenon, Karl Ove Knausgaard Childhood is exhilarating and terrifying. For the young Karl Ove, new houses, classes and friends are met with manic excitement and creeping dread. Adults occupy godlike positions of power, benevolent in the case of his doting mother, tyrannical in the case of his cruel father. In the now infamously direct style of the My Struggle cycle, Knausgaard describes a time in which victories and defeats are felt keenly and every attempt at self-definition is frustrated. This is a book about family, memory and how we never become quite what we set out to be. ‘Knausgaard finds the sublime in the everyday... Boyhood Island reverberates with the joys and anxieties of early youth, and Knausgaard brilliantly recreates their exaggerated feel’ Times Literary Supplement

BOOK EXCERPT:

Is it possible to fully accept, even love, the life you have? Is it possible to drop the struggle to make yourself and your life different? Acclaimed teacher and bestselling author Roger Housden says yes in this profound alternative to nonstop striving and self-criticism. Whether about our relationships, careers, or spirituality, many of us judge ourselves as not measuring up. But fulfillment comes when we stop struggling and learn to trust the wisdom of what life presents us with. Housden wrote Dropping the Struggle as someone who, up until a few years ago, spent much of his time in a covert struggle with life. Despite his success, he often felt that something was missing. He struggled for years with an ongoing spiritual longing, with questions of meaning and purpose, with the search for love, with all the usual difficulties of being human, until he finally realized — though not with his thinking mind — that the only thing life was asking of him was to rest in a deeper knowing that was always there, usually silently, behind the arguments and strategies that would so commonly occupy his conscious self. “Struggle will never get us the things we want most,” Housden writes, “love; meaning; presence; freedom from anxiety over the past and future; contentment with ourselves exactly as we are, imperfections and all; the acceptance of our mortality — because these things lie outside the ego’s domain. For these, we need another way. That way begins and ends in surrender, in letting go of our resistance to life as it presents itself.”

BOOK EXCERPT:

Love Again Before the End of Time. . . WAS IT SO GOOD THAT YOU STILL WANT MORE? . . . OR SO BAD THAT YOU WANT SOMETHING GOOD FOR A CHANGE? Given the chance to go back in time to just after his fulfilled love with Vernique - would Vilanova take the risk of loving again in partnership? Being happy to have had one great love for most of a lifetime, should he be content to limit himself to friends and family with only the occasional dalliance? Might that not be wise, given the anguish that it is often coupled to searching for continued fulfillment? But he cannot give lie to his need for intimacy in his life, for the joy that can only come from sharing experience, waking each morning with his love beside him. So, his answer is an unequivocal "YES," to seeking LOVE AGAIN BEFORE THE END OF TIME. Losing his lifetime partner after 47 years at age 72, Vilanova de Gaia had already reached that plateau of fulfillment in relationships, adventure and those many possibilities he didn't even know existed. Yet he wasn't ready to give up the day-to-day intimacy in his remaining years, which had ultimately given so much joy and meaning to his life. He had no idea that through all he learned he would not make the mistake that came close to shattering all those remaining years. He almost gave up his quest, thinking it was too late, when fate gave him an unsought reprieve. Vilanova's passionate encounters stimulated him to write memorable verse to women he discovered along the way to "love again." This included verse of adventures, such as fly fishing in Colorado, spending the night in a Tuareg camp in the Sahara, and taking local children on safari in Kenya. All of these elements are poignantly melded together in this narrative of an exceptionally fulfilling life in love, work and adventure. To Vilanova, the most meaningful recollections were of the people he met along the way. TOLD IN TEN CHAPTERS - Here's a brief summary of each chapter: CHAPTERS ONE - WANTING MORE How I struggle to maintain a passionate life, trying to give new loves a positive view of the memorabilia in my home of my late wife, Vernique. CHAPTER TWO - CLIMATE OF POTENTIALITY Making it even better, celebrating favorite characters on New Years Eve, lightening 21 days of radiation treatment with daily distractions, and maintaining a physical reality through sculpture. CHAPTER THREE - LIVING AT A WORLD LEVEL Seeing the world from the inside out as wine importers, riding an Arabian stallion into the Sahara desert to an unforeseen Tuareg camp. CHAPTER FOUR - REACHING A PLATEAU OF LIFE Living every day to fulfillment after Vernique is given six months to live, that become our seven best years, while starting Kenyan Kids on Safari, a charity. CHAPTER FIVE - ADDING ANOTHER DIMENSION Vernique's poetry celebrates life, while tinged with facing the ultimate reality of death. CHAPTER SIX - HEALING LOVE Helene lifts me up from my grief onto a plateau of friendship until I'm bursting with passionate serenity, but finding nothings left but the dream of love. CHAPTER SEVEN - INTERMEZZO & LIFELONG LOVE Lizabeta and the agony of dating (especially old family friends), then a wonderful interlude at my sister's Smoky Mountain home, all the while weaving back into a relationship with my lifelong love, Zafra, who dies suddenly. CHAPTER EIGHT - WANTING IT TO BE LOVE That turned out to be the case, even though I was sure that this striking beauty with such presence and ease of manner was the ONE. CHAPTER NINE - LOVING AGAIN: A SELF-DESTRUCT Giovanna slides into my life when I had given up hope of loving again, but realize a great passion for each other before she burns out like a star in nova from an addiction induced by medication for old pro-skiing injuries. CHAPTER TEN - TO LOVE AGAIN STILL LOOKS POSSIBLE Even after throwing away the key to that door, Terra and some members of her family are giving me life and love again.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Letters charting family inheritance, letters stowed away in attics, letters burnt at the end of romances, bittersweet letters written but never sent- women have long been associated with personal correspondence. Yet feminists reinvented the image of the female letter writer in the 1970s and 80s, undertaking new and passionate exchanges on sexuality, separatism, and strategy. Their letters reveal the changed interest women began to feel in one another and in the demands-and disappointments-these relationships would create. Margaretta Jolly provides the first cultural study of women's letters during this period, tracing the evolution of feminist political consciousness from the height of the women's movement to today's global networks. Jolly makes sense of the contradictory emotions of letter writing and captures a fragile yet persistent ideal of care, women's love, and epistolary art. From lesbian love letters to dispatches from women's encampments at Greenham Common and the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, from letters exchanged between mothers and daughters to the spread of feminist internet communities, Jolly provides a fascinating glimpse into the intimate archives of contemporary women.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Written from the maximum-security prison where he has lived for almost 30 years, this enlightening memoir chronicles the militant career of David Gilbert, a radical activist whose incarceration is due to his involvement in the 1981 Brinks robbery, an attempted expropriation that resulted in four deaths. From his entry into the world of political activism as the founder of Students for a Democratic Society at Columbia University to his departure from public life in order to help build the clandestine resistance to war and racism known as the Weathermen, Gilbert relates all of the victories he has achieved and obstacles he has encountered during his struggle to build a new world. In telling the intensely personal story he is stripped of all illusions and assesses his journey from liberal to radical to revolutionary with rare humor and frankness. A firsthand glimpse into the terrors and triumphs of the 1960s and beyond, Love and Struggle is as candid and uncompromising as its author.
