What Are You Going Through Book Summary :

NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2020 BY NPR, PEOPLE, AND O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE A NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS’ TOP BOOK OF 2020 NATIONAL BESTSELLER “As good as The Friend, if not better.” —The New York Times “Impossible to put down . . . leavened with wit and tenderness.” —People “I was dazed by the novel’s grace.” —The New Yorker The New York Times–bestselling, National Book Award–winning author of The Friend brings her singular voice to a story about the meaning of life and death, and the value of companionship A woman describes a series of encounters she has with various people in the ordinary course of her life: an ex she runs into by chance at a public forum, an Airbnb owner unsure how to interact with her guests, a stranger who seeks help comforting his elderly mother, a friend of her youth now hospitalized with terminal cancer. In each of these people the woman finds a common need: the urge to talk about themselves and to have an audience to their experiences. The narrator orchestrates this chorus of voices for the most part as a passive listener, until one of them makes an extraordinary request, drawing her into an intense and transformative experience of her own. In What Are You Going Through, Nunez brings wisdom, humor, and insight to a novel about human connection and the changing nature of relationships in our times. A surprising story about empathy and the unusual ways one person can help another through hardship, her book offers a moving and provocative portrait of the way we live now.

An unexpectedly life-affirming novel about choosing to die, by National Book Award winner and bestselling author of THE FRIEND 'Love, death, friendship, compassion & SO MUCH wisdom. I just adore Sigrid Nunez' PAULA HAWKINS A woman visits a friend who is dying of cancer. Brilliant and stubborn, her friend makes a momentous request. She wishes to end her life on her own terms - and she wants the narrator's help. Stricken, she agrees. 'I promise,' says the friend, 'to make it as much fun as possible.' What follows is an extraordinary tale of a friendship put to the greatest test: to witness, unflinching, its end. It is also a portrait of the way we live now, in a world endlessly troubled by crises, and the dramatically changing nature of human relationships in our time.

The Friend Book Summary :

WINNER OF THE 2018 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF 2018 "A beautiful book ... a world of insight into death, grief, art, and love." --Wall Street Journal "A penetrating, moving meditation on loss, comfort, memory...Nunez has a wry, withering wit." --NPR "Dry, allusive and charming...the comedy here writes itself." The New York Times A moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog. When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building. While others worry that grief has made her a victim of magical thinking, the woman refuses to be separated from the dog except for brief periods of time. Isolated from the rest of the world, increasingly obsessed with the dog's care, determined to read its mind and fathom its heart, she comes dangerously close to unraveling. But while troubles abound, rich and surprising rewards lie in store for both of them. Elegiac and searching, The Friend is both a meditation on loss and a celebration of human-canine devotion.

Salvation City Book Summary :

From the National Book Award-winning author of The Friend comes a moving and eerily relevant novel that imagines the aftermath of a pandemic virus as seen through the eyes of a thirteen-year-old boy uncertain of his destiny. His family's sole survivor after a flu pandemic has killed large numbers of people worldwide, Cole Vining is lucky to have found refuge with the evangelical Pastor Wyatt and his wife in a small town in southern Indiana. As the world outside has grown increasingly anarchic, Salvation City has been spared much of the devastation, and its residents have renewed their preparations for the Rapture. Grateful for the shelter and love of his foster family (and relieved to have been saved from the horrid, overrun orphanages that have sprung up around the country), Cole begins to form relationships within the larger community. But despite his affection for this place, he struggles with memories of the very different world in which he was reared. Is there room to love both Wyatt and his parents? Are they still his parents if they are no longer there? As others around him grow increasingly fixated on the hope of salvation and the new life to come through the imminent Rapture, Cole begins to conceive of a different future for himself, one in which his own dreams of heroism seem within reach. Written in Sigrid Nunez's deceptively simple style, Salvation City is a story of love, betrayal, and forgiveness, weaving the deeply affecting story of a young boy's transformation with a profound meditation on the meaning of belief and heroism.

Going Through the Storm Book Summary :

(Not enough room in Review field) "In this marvelous collection of essays by one of the gifted American historians of our time Sterling Stuckey brings together his ripe knowledge of the rich interplay of history, anthropology, folklore, musicology, and literature in our understanding of the African American experience. Stuckey is relentless in his pursuit of the African connection and of the central importance of Afrcian American culture in American life andhistory. Going through the Storm is one of those books that will have to be taken seriosly by students of American culture for years to come."--Otey M. Scruggs, Syracuse University "Going through the Storm is a work of intellectual breadth and compelling insight....SterlingStuckey, with remarkable brilliance and insight, cuts through the centuries of obfuscation to rescue intact the black aesthetic which informs the common culture of black and white America in significant ways. Going Through the Storm renders all apologies for African art in any of its forms, obsolete, and all questions of its pervasiveness superfluous. The history of the African American aesthetic has finally been placed in its proper perspective as a significant component of Americancultural history."--C. Eric Lincoln, Duke University "Written with elegance, imagination, passion, commitment, and a profound understanding of art and history, Going through the Storm is a compelling, multi-disciplinary study of major importance. Underscoring the "revolutionary ethic atthe heart of song," Professor Stuckey demonstrates with brilliant insight and poignant sensitivity the ways in which African American culture (language, music, dance, folklore, poetry, and fiction) functions in interpreting the past, affirming Black humanity, and resisting forms of oppression. With an intimate knowledge of African artistic traditions and of the sacred and secular art forms of Negro slaves, Stuckey reconstructs the aesthetic and spiritual history of Blacks through exci
