A WWII memoir of prison and Providence18-year-old Donald Mansell, his brother and parents were sailing to Africa as missionaries when America plunged into World War II. Fleeing for safety to the Philippines, they instead found themselves prisoners of the Japanese army, spending the next three years in a concentration camp.

Through the eyes of a survivor, we discover the role of trials in developing faith, and we see the intervention of a merciful Providence in an unforgettable true-life adventure.

Double Game

Double Game was the first major publication in English by French artist Sophie Calle (born 1953), and is her bestselling title to date. It takes the form of a double jeu or double game between the work of Sophie Calle and the fiction of Paul Auster. The story begins with Maria, a fictional character in Paul Auster¿s novel, Leviathan. Most of the fictional Maria¿s works are, in fact, based on those of the real-life Sophie Calle. The first section of Double Game features Calle¿s representations of the fictional Maria¿s works. We see the pieces both as they¿re described in their fictional context and as Calle¿s own interpretation of the descriptions from Paul Auster¿s novel. In the second section, the story delves deeper into Calle¿s world, with a sequence of Calle¿s seminal narrative and abstract works in texts and images that were in turn appropriated by the fictional Maria in Leviathan. The third section of Double Game switches the focus back to Maria¿s original creator, Paul Auster, who takes Calle as his subject, formulating for her the Gotham Handbook, which offers personalized instructions for the artist on ¿How to Improve Life in New York City.¿

Four elderly southern women share a house, a history, and heartbreaking secrets. Baby girl, I hope you're listening real good to what I'm gonna tell you about that sure-enough miracle we got us. Had to be a miracle, because in all my born days, I didn't never think it could turn out like this. Didn't never think you'd be sitting right here on this very porch with me, hearing me talk about all us folks you don't know nothing much about yet.. . . Back then, I didn't really know that all the folks who came ahead of us are like the brown roots of a big old vine growing close to the porch, and even though those roots are way down deep in the ground where we can't see them, they're still there. And we grow from them, our whole lives, and then, if we're lucky, others grow from us. Well, I expect that the ones who came before us--black and white--had things they had to keep still about, too, just like me and Miss Cora. Things we had to do, whether we liked it or not. And then never speak of them again. Augusta Trobaugh is the acclaimed author of fine novels including PraiseJerusalem, Sophie and the Rising Sun, and coming soon, Music From Beyond the Moon.
