From award-winning actress Denise Nicholas: a ten-year anniversary reissue of her powerful and dramatic coming of age story set in Mississippi during the Freedom Summer of 1964. Freshwater Road has been called one of the best novels written about the Civil Rights Movement. Nicholas herself has been praised repeatedly over the years for her beautiful prose and is continually mentioned along with Alice Walker and Ernest J. Gaines as the most important novelists documenting this era. When University of Michigan sophomore Celeste Tyree travels to Mississippi to volunteer her efforts in Freedom Summer, she's assigned to help register voters in the small town of Pineyville, a place best known for a notorious lynching that occurred only a few years earlier. As the long, hot summer unfolds, Celeste befriends several members of the community, but there are also those who are threatened by her and the change that her presence in the South represents. Finding inner strength as she helps lift the veil of oppression and learns valuable lessons about race, social change, and violence, Celeste prepares her adult students for their showdown with the county registrar. All the while, she struggles with loneliness, a worried father in Detroit, and her burgeoning feelings for Ed Jolivette, a young man also in Mississippi for the summer. By summer's end, Celeste learns there are no easy answers to the questions that preoccupy her — about violence and nonviolence, about race, identity, and color, and about the strength of love and family bonds. In Freshwater Road, Denise Nicholas has created an unforgettable story that — more than ten years after first appearing in print — continues to be one of the most cherished works of Civil Rights fiction.

Akwaeke Emezi erkundet in ihrem von Kritik und Publikum gefeierten Debütroman SÜSSWASSER wie es ist, ein gespaltenes Ich zu haben. Und sie zeigt gleichzeitig, wie wir alle unsere verschiedenen Identitäten laufend konstruieren. Ein Buch von wilder Energie und schlangenartiger Eleganz - die Geburt einer neuen ungebändigten literarischen Stimme. Ada wächst im Süden Nigerias auf. Sie ist ein sprunghaftes und schwieriges Kind und ein Quell steter Sorge für ihre Eltern. Adas verschiedene Ichs kommen immer wieder zum Vorschein und rücken vor allem nach ihrem Umzug in die USA immer stärker in den Vordergrund. Nach einem traumatischen Übergriff nimmt Adas Leben eine dunkle und gefährliche Wendung. "SÜSSWASSER ist reine Perfektion: sexy, sinnlich, magisch, weise. Eines der umwerfendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe." Taiye Selasi, GUARDIAN "Außergewöhnlich und mutig, poetisch und verstörend." NEW YORK TIMES "Eine ungeheuer kraftvolle und sehr besondere Einwanderungsgeschichte." Edwidge Danticat, NEW YORKER

Offering a comprehensive view of the South's literary landscape, past and present, this volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture celebrates the region's ever-flourishing literary culture and recognizes the ongoing evolution of the southern literary canon. As new writers draw upon and reshape previous traditions, southern literature has broadened and deepened its connections not just to the American literary mainstream but also to world literatures--a development thoughtfully explored in the essays here. Greatly expanding the content of the literature section in the original Encyclopedia, this volume includes 31 thematic essays addressing major genres of literature; theoretical categories, such as regionalism, the southern gothic, and agrarianism; and themes in southern writing, such as food, religion, and sexuality. Most striking is the fivefold increase in the number of biographical entries, which introduce southern novelists, playwrights, poets, and critics. Special attention is given to contemporary writers and other individuals who have not been widely covered in previous scholarship.

Fifteen years in the making, this book is the one Canada’s “heavyweight champ of brash and beautiful literature” was meant to write. An epic masterwork about Newfoundland’s working class, Blackstrap Hawco spans more than a century in gorgeous and widely varied prose, reminding us that even when writing about the degradation of identity and language, Harvey does it magnificently. Named in a moment of anger, Blackstrap Hawco is heir to an island dominion picked over by its adoptive nation. From the arrivals of the indentured Irish to the Victorian drawing rooms of the English merchants, from the perilous seal hunt to the raucous iron ore mines, from a notorious disaster at sea to the relocation of outport communities, the family legend might be all his people have left to live for. But as Blackstrap Hawco – a novel that will consume you in its dazzling swirl of voices, legends and beautiful hearsay – testifies, a story this haunting, this powerful, might just be enough. From the Hardcover edition.
