Summary

'Seeing Europe through the Eyes of the Famous Authors (Vol. 1-8)' masterfully curates an eclectic compilation of works that offer a panoramic view of European landscapes, cultures, and histories, through the distinctive lenses of some of the most revered writers in literary history. The anthology encompasses a vast array of literary styles - from the lyrical poems of Percy Bysshe Shelley to the incisive narrative essays of William Howitt. Each volume serves as a cultural excavation, digging deep into the zeitgeist of various European epochs and offering readers magnificently vivid portrayals of historical and legendary passages. The anthology is not just a geographical journey but a journey through the intricacies of various narrative forms and thematic explorations, making it a seminal contribution to transnational literary studies. The authors and editors of this collection, ranging from romantic poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to the philosophical critic John Ruskin, bring diverging interpretations and insights into the European scene, each influenced by their respective historico-cultural backgrounds. This rich variety presents Europe as a dynamic mosaic of experiences and epochs, examined through literary movements such as Romanticism, Realism, and the Gothic. The anthology is a testament to how profoundly place influences literary production, creativity, and interpretation. This collection invites readers to traverse the contours of Europe through a tapestry of narratives that are as educative as they are enchanting. 'Seeing Europe through the Eyes of the Famous Authors' not only broadens one's literary horizons but also deepens one's understanding of European culture and history as seen through the eyes of its greatest literary figures. It is recommended for enthusiasts of literary history, scholars seeking multidimensional views of Europe, and readers wanting to relive the past through the vibrant recounting of those who wrote as they travelled, observed, and experienced.

    An anthology of essays and poetry exploring the Motor City’s hidden corners—from the people who live and work there. It seems like everybody in Detroit thinks they know the city’s neighborhoods, but because there are so many, their characteristics often become muddled and the stories that define them are often lost.

A homegrown portrait about the lesser-known parts of the city, The Detroit Neighborhood Guidebook showcases the voices and people who make up Cass Corridor, West Village, Minock Park, Warrendale, Hamtramck, and almost every other spot in the city.

    Desiring to bring hope and healing to other victims, these men and women—survivors as well as their community of family and friends—come together to speak out about their abuse and betrayal by Catholic priests and leaders. These are only a few stories—but through these few are related the experiences of many victims. Contrary to conventional wisdom, these men and women are still active, practicing Catholics who love their faith.  The abusers may have stolen their innocence, but through God’s grace, they weren’t able to steal their faith. 
    Included are chapters providing practical advice from Dr. Deborah Rodriguez, a medical doctor specializing in trauma care, Christopher West, an expert on St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, and Elizabeth Terrill, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, to help victims begin or continue the process of healing, not only from sexual abuse, but also from the damage done to their faith. 
    Priests and Bishops of the Catholic Church have harmed many, but through this 2,000 year old institution, these victims found the healing they so desired and deserved. This book aims to unite victims and concerned members of the Catholic Church to fight against the evil of sexual abuse and coverup. The Catholic Church has a lot of work to do, but there are good, heroic people within its membership who desire to advocate for victims of sexual abuse and to change the structures that allowed this Abuse of Trust to occur.

    M. Randal O’Wain’s debut short story collection, Hallelujah Station and Other Stories, introduces readers to a wide and diverse cast of characters struggling with and responding to changes and loss. These gritty and poignant stories follow the tragic parts of life, the pieces that may neither start nor end in comfortable resolution and the pieces that make up complex realities. In the first story, a former drug dealer reflects on a life-changing decision he made years ago that ended up hurting the person he most wanted to protect. Later in the collection, we meet a would-be robber who turns out, in strange ways, to be the hero. O’Wain’s characters are often deeply flawed or totally lost, but in each instance, these traits serve to reveal the characters as real, compassionate, and, ultimately, human. Sprinkled with humor and heartache, O’Wain’s stories bring us into contact with the curious, the tragic, and the authentic.

    Sweet and Low - A Family Story

    Sweet and Low is the amazing, bittersweet, hilarious story of an American family and its patriarch, a short-order cook named Ben Eisenstadt who, in the years after World War II, invented the sugar packet and Sweet'N Low, converting his Brooklyn cafeteria into a factory and amassing the great fortune that would destroy his family. 
    It is also the story of immigrants to the New World, sugar, saccharine, obesity, and the health and diet craze, played out across countries and generations but also within the life of a single family, as the fortune and the factory passed from generation to generation. The author, Rich Cohen, a grandson (disinherited, and thus set free, along with his mother and siblings), has sought the truth of this rancorous, colorful history, mining thousands of pages of court documents accumulated in the long and sometimes corrupt life of the factor, and conducting interviews with members of his extended family. Along the way, the forty-year family battle over the fortune moves into its titanic phase, with the money and legacy up for grabs. Sweet and Low is the story of this struggle, a strange comic farce of machinations and double dealings, and of an extraordinary family and its fight for the American dream.A Macmillan Audio production.
