In the short period of time since Gloria Naylor published her first novel, The Women of Brewster Place (1982), to wide acclaim, she has established herself as a significant contemporary writer. A self-avowed feminist and black cultural nationalist, Naylor has produced a body of work that resists easy classification. Through the four novels she has published to date, which also include Linden Hills (1985), Mama Day (1988), and Bailey's Cafe (1992), she enters into a dialogue with a wide assortment of earlier writers, from Shakespeare and Dante to Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison. In Gloria Naylor: In Search of Sanctuary, Virginia C. Fowler offers the first full-length study devoted exclusively to Naylor's work. Fowler insightfully analyzes Naylor's four novels, specifically focusing on aspects of the texts that have been largely unexamined to date. She also provides a general examination of important aspects of Naylor's life, including the Jehovah's Witness religion, of which Naylor was a member until she was 25, and the emergence in the late 1960s and early 1970s of a new generation of black women writers and scholars. Fowler reveals the extent to which Naylor's artistic sensibility has been shaped by her experiences as a Jehovah's Witness and her strong identification with feminism. The volume also features a valuable bibliography, a chronology of Naylor's life, and the text of a lengthy interview with Naylor that the author conducted in 1993.

It is also recommended for readers who enjoy human drama, historical fiction, and adventure." - Robin Edmunds, Foreword Clarion Review "In a world of scandalizing reality shows this book is a lyrical and uplifting story of redemption and faith. It is a breath of fresh air that is much needed in the literary world " - Carolyn Bracken Orr, Decatur Daily In the grimy, crime-ridden New York City of the 1890's, three lives are torn apart in a single, savage day. The events that unite them, for better and for worse, come together in a gripping tale of two continents that is ripe with danger and discovery. In Search of Sanctuary, Jamie E. Kirby's epic historical novel, charts the perilous journey of these three young souls, who must lose themselves in order to reinvent themselves. In evocative period detail, In Search of Sanctuary follows the young and earnest Aiden, the fearsome Mac, and the artistic Shamus as each seeks sanctuary from a vicious massacre on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Each one believes he or she is the sole survivor, yet their separate journeys are intertwined in ways that even an ocean cannot sever.

This work describes the pre-history of contemporary Latin American narrative, with particular attention to the Spanish-speaking Latin American 'boom'-- from the early dominance of peninsular Spanish literary norms to the gradual weakening of these norms and the complete opening up to foreign innovations, when Latin American literature came into its own.

Richard Strozzi Heckler sounds an important call about the interplay between power and generosity in these subtle and luminous essays.
Author: Richard Strozzi-Heckler
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
As in all his books, Heckler draws from personal experience: training his horse, cultivating presence in aikido dojos, consulting with business executives, raising children. A masterful and encompassing book, Holding the Center develops from the fulcrum of the self in the natural world. Many of Heckler’s lessons arise from his life as a householder and father. Community is a larger family—we make alliances to “take care of what matters to us.” But, as Heckler teaches, that takes listening to others with an open heart, and learning what the needs of others are.The world can be a sanctuary, if we find a balance between instinct and choice. Richard Strozzi Heckler sounds an important call about the interplay between power and generosity in these subtle and luminous essays.

Author: Hap Wilson
One hundred years ago, a young doctor from Cleveland by the name of Robert Newcomb, travelled north to a place called Temagami. It was as far north as one could travel by any modern means. Beautiful beyond any simple expletive, the Temagami wilderness was a land rich in timber, clear-water lakes, fast flowing rivers, mystery and adventure. Newcomb befriended the local Aboriginals — the Deep Water People — and quickly discovered the best way to explore was by canoe. Bewitched by the spirit of an interior river named after the elusive brook trout, Majamagosibi, Newcomb had a remote cabin built overlooking one of her precipitous cataracts. The cabin remained unused for decades, save for a few passing canoeists; it changed ownership twice and slowly began to show its age. The author discovered the cabin while on a canoe trip in 1970. Like Newcomb, Hap Wilson was lured to Temagami in pursuit of adventure and personal sanctuary. That search for sanctuary took the author incredible distances by canoe and snowshoe, through near death experiences and Herculean challenges. Secretly building cabins, homesteading and working as a park ranger, Wilson finally became owner of The Cabin in 2000. Artist, author and adventurer, Hap Wilson is perhaps best known for his ecotourism/travel guidebooks. He has led over 300 wilderness expeditions in Canada, and served as actor Pierce Brosnan’s personal outdoor trainer for the feature film Grey Owl. "This is a complex and fascinating story, beautifully told. At first, it draws us in because the author appears to be living the life we all dream of-a simpler life, close to nature, free from the stress and strain of our consumer culture. But the reality, with its myriad challenges, is what holds our attention and gives the book its substance." — Judith Ruan, Muskoka Magazine

The children of the Sanctuary, are the creative minds, the divine souls, gods among human begins and the light of life.

Understanding more the new world, behind unopened doors, between unexplored parallels, where the poetical verses of art dominates, where philosophy is a life style and where all the immortal souls belongs to... the eternal place, the Sanctuary. Here are the Poetry and Songs, experience by the divine immortal souls, fighting their own demons, in a world of dark mortal souls, a world of hate and chaos, destruction and confusion.
