Summary

WINNER OF THE DAYTON LITERARY PEACE PRIZE 2017Reina Castillo's beloved brother is serving a death sentence for a crime that shocked the community - a crime for which Reina secretly blames herself. When she is at last released from her seven-year prison vigil, Reina moves to a sleepy town in the Florida Keys seeking anonymity.There, she meets Nesto, a recently exiled Cuban awaiting with hope the arrival of the children he left behind in Havana. Through Nesto's love of the sea and capacity for faith, Reina comes to understand her own connections to the life-giving and destructive forces of the ocean that surrounds her as well as its role in her family's troubled history. Set in the vibrant coastal and Caribbean communities of Miami; the Florida Keys; Havana, Cuba; and Cartagena, Colombia, The Veins of the Ocean is a wrenching exploration of what happens when life tests the limits of compassion, and a stunning and unforgettable portrait of fractured lives finding solace in the beauty and power of the natural world, and in one another.

    “An insightful, personal exploration of humankind’s global fascination with the monstrous.” —Lisa Morton, author of Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween Inspired by a fascination with fear culture, writer Chris Kullstroem left her job and home to experience firsthand some of the world’s most legendary scare shows. Under the guidance of locals, she saw it all: attractions like the Day of the Dead, the haunts of New Zealand, and even the mythical Krampus brought to life in the streets of Austria. Each eerie enactment evokes a sense of wonder, demonstrating powerful emotions that transcend language and culture to reveal a connection we all share.  “Visit candlelit cemeteries in Oaxaca, duck the whips of Krampus in Salzburg, hunt zombies in Britain, and dance with witches atop Brocken Mountain on Walpurgis Night . . . A deliciously creepy companion for the free-spirited armchair traveler.” —Lesley Bannatyne, author of Halloween Nation: Behind the Scenes of America’s Fright Night  “A fascinating glimpse into the exploration of the darker, more fantastic corners of our imagination from around the world!” —Edward Douglas, founder of and cocomposer for the award-winning recording act Midnight Syndicate  “An excitingly macabre tour through a horror lover’s best attractions and events!” —Justin Lewis, Mr. Frights

    Are there sociopaths in your life? You bet! You may not recognize them, or they may not be serial killers. Perhaps they are not causing any trouble at all. But to know what to look for, is pretty important, if you ask me. It’s interesting that some people just don’t have that much of a conscience. And every person chooses how to deal with that differently. It can reflect on their actions in different ways. 
      
    Moreover, sociopaths typically abuse the conscience of others by manipulating them with guilt-trips, blackmail, and other secret techniques. Psychopaths are similar, but they are not the same. We will discuss that too. Other topics in this book include why many male sociopaths objectify women, the motivations of a sociopath, and the three steps for identifying one.

    A “gripping, sensitive” biography of the trailblazing singer who carved a path for African American artists including Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson (The Atlanta Voice).   Performing in a country rife with racism and segregation, the tenor Roland Hayes was the first African American man to reach international fame as a concert performer. He became one of the few artists in the world who could sell out Town Hall, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Hall, and Covent Garden. Performing the African American spirituals he was raised on, his voice was marked with a unique sonority which easily navigated French, German, and Italian art songs. A multiculturalist both on and off the stage, he counted among his friends George Washington Carver, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ezra Pound, Pearl Buck, Dwight Eisenhower, and Langston Hughes.   This “substantial and well-documented” biography spans the history of Hayes’s life and career and the legacy he left behind as a musician and a champion of African American rights (BBC Music Magazine). It is an authentic, panoramic portrait of a man who was as complex as the music he performed.   “Like many generations of celebrated African American concert artists, I am an inheritor of the legacy left by the great Roland Hayes. Yet, we hardly know his name today. With this long overdue book, the oversight is now remedied.” —Lawrence Brownlee, Metropolitan Opera    “A wonderful journey through Hayes’ performances, racial plight and acceptance.” —Examiner.com
