Lyuobomir Levchev has long been recognised internationally as an outstanding poet and he is the leading poet of Bulgaria. There is a wide range of emotional content, a wide reach of political and personal context, from sorrow to humour, from dread to optimism. This is a European voice calling to those countries unaware of Bulgaria's culture and history; the imagery is striking, the stance often unusual; both John Donne and Robert Lowell come to mind.

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.

“Not only does Huffman bring Tim back to life . . . but he also leads us through some of the most harrowing combat of our generation” (Sebastian Junger, New York Times–bestselling author of Tribe). Tim Hetherington (1970–2011) was one of the world’s most distinguished and dedicated photojournalists, whose career was tragically cut short when he died in a mortar blast while covering the Libyan Civil War. Someone far less interested in professional glory than revealing to the world the realities of people living in extremely difficult circumstances, Hetherington nonetheless won many awards for his war reporting, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his critically acclaimed documentary, Restrepo. In Here I Am, Alan Huffman tells Hetherington’s life story, and through it analyses, what it means to be a war reporter in the twenty-first century. Huffman recounts the camerman’s life from his first interest in photography and war reporting, through his critical role in reporting the Liberian Civil War, to his tragic death in Libya. Huffman also traces Hetherington’s photographic milestones, from his iconic and prize-winning pictures of Liberian children, to the celebrated portraits of sleeping US soldiers in Afghanistan. “A powerfully written biography . . . This is poignant imagery and metaphor for the entire body of this extraordinary artist and humanist’s life.” —The Huffington Post “Huffman excels at heightening the drama, depicting the rapid-fire action and constant danger of working among soldiers and guerrillas engaged in battle.” —The Boston Globe “Huffman vividly chronicles the short life of a man drawn to danger zones to capture the horrors of modern warfare.” —Los Angeles Times “Celebrate[s] Tim Hetherington’s life . . . Recount[s] his last days in Libya in excruciating detail.” —Time

What if God is hiding in plain sight? This is the question that author Keith Scott asks in his book about finding God's presence in our lives. Here I Am flips the response that Abraham and Moses gave to God's call, imagining it as God's response to our question, "Where are you?" The book shows that God reveals himself in human nature, history, science, classical and popular culture, and in our common customs and habits. Along the way the reader also discovers answers to some of the most vexing issues facing believers, like the problem of evil, Darwin's theory of evolution, and the meaning of salvation. Here I Am looks for the answers and finds them--and him--all around us.

WE ALL WANT TO EXPERIENCE successful, even dramatic, spiritual growth. Yet we often feel as though we're taking "two steps forward, three steps back." As we learn--and relearn--the same spiritual lessons time and again, we become discouraged, thinking that we are not changing or growing. But, as author Carole Mayhall gently reminds us, such experiences are a normal, even vital, part of the healthy Christian life. With heart-warming vulnerability, Mayhall explains and illustrates that spiritual growth is a lifelong endeavor--but through it all, your heavenly Father is whispering, "I will uphold you. I will sustain you. I will carry you." Painting a vivid picture of a patient God who loves and shapes you, Here I Am Again, Lord offers solid reassurance and motivation to significantly encourage you in your walk with Christ.

California, here I am is a funny and shrewd Hollywood novel that takes us into the movie making scene: its hype, its glamour and its ruthlessness. At the same time, it chronicles a son's relationship with his father, as they wreak their own route through Beverley Hills, Santa Barbara, Sun Valley and eventually end up at a strange Caribbean island. It is a humorous but also moving story. The author, himself a Hollywood insider, gives some powerful insights into the ways and wiles of the industry and its protagonists.
