Summary

The latest installment from “a powerful force in the literary world” (Los Angeles Times) Freeman’s turns to one of the greatest elevating forces of life: love 
In a time of contentiousness and flagrant abuse, it often feels as if our world is run on hate. Invective. Cruelty and sadism. But is it possible the greatest and most powerful force is love? In the newest issue of this acclaimed series, Freeman’s Love asks this question, bringing together literary heavyweights like Tommy Orange, Anne Carson, Louise Erdrich, and Nobel Prize winner Olga Tokarczuk alongside emerging writers such as Gunnhild Øyehaug and Semezdin Mehmedinović. 
Mehmedinović contributes a breathtaking book-length essay on the aftermath of his wife’s stroke, describing how the two reassembled their lives outside their home country of Bosnia. Richard Russo’s charming and painful “Good People” introduces us to two sets of married professors who have been together for decades, and for whom love still exists, but between the wrong pair. Haruki Murakami tells the tale of a one-night stand that feels like a dying sun. 
Together, the pieces comprise a stunning exploration of the complexities of love, tracing it from its earliest stirrings, to the forbidden places where it emerges against reason, to loss so deep it changes the color of perception. In a time when we need it the most, this issue promises what only love can bring: a solace of complexity and warmth.

    Amyas Northcote (1864 - 1923) was an English writer and contemporary of M. R. James, who was best known for his ghost stories. "The Downs" is a classic ghost story which demonstrates Northcote's understated genius. The story starts out as a regular tale, but with a few understated clues as to the nature of the horror that is to come - perfectly setting the atmosphere of creepy tension: "I was perfectly confident in my ability to find my way back over the down to Branksome at night, as the path was very familiar to us, and I expected to be aided by the light of the moon which would rise about ten o'clock."  Sure enough, the journey back over the downs reveals a terrifying horror... and our hero is lucky to escape with his life.

Paltry small man – Nevyrazimov - humiliates himself even more with servility and subservience. "HONORED Sir, Father and Benefactor!", But he thinks "What else can I write to him, the rascal?" The world where Nevyrazimov lives is full of hate and fear of life.A SmartTouch Media production.
