Love After War from the Author: Wayne Karlin. How does the literature of a society that has endured decades of war reflect the echoes of that violence to bodies and spirits while depicting the ordinary lives of men and women who are searching, as all people do, for meaning, for happiness, for normalcy, for love? Love After War presents the widest range to date of contemporary writers in Vietnam, men and women who have become part of that country's established canon, as well as young and up-coming writers who have come of age in modern Vietnam. Their stories, published in the most widely read literary journals, magazines and newspapers in Vietnam, and many translated here for the first time, reveal the relationships and concerns of everyday life, and the erosion and endurance of life in that country. Contributors to the anthology include Vu Boa, Nguyen Minh Chau, Ngo Thi Kim Cuc, Nguyen Phan Hach, Ma Van Khang, Nguyen Khai, Le Minh Khue, Nguyen Thi Minh Ngoc, Bao Ninh, Doan Le, Ho Anh Thai, Nguyen Huy Thiep, Nguyen Manh Tuan and others.

Love After War from the Author: Kathleen Hope. Ida Prayig had a bad feeling every time she walked into the Veterans Affairs office. She knew they were trying to help her. She knew that in a very logical part of her mind, but that part was too often drowned out by the rage and the fear that had come to be a part of her daily life since she’d returned home from her most recent deployment. When they asked her, in the quiet voices one uses for a child, what they could do to help her, she’d been very straightforward. “Make me walk again.” They would sigh each time she said it, explain again that the remaining tissue in her legs was a hindrance to any functional prosthetic use. Then the conversation would turn around again, back to the idea of further amputation. But she wanted to walk, not lose more of herself than she already had. The doctors didn’t understand, they couldn’t, they still had all their limbs. The bomb had been cleverly hidden, hidden from everyone, even the dogs. She didn’t blame them because she was flying ten feet through the air before she figured it out. After the bomb, everything had gone dark, and when she woke up her feet were gone. Just like that, a piece of her was missing. Her own canine partner, Rohan, had been several feet away, saving him from the brunt of the blast. They’d retired him anyway, letting him stay by Ida’s side. She wished she was home with him now instead of sitting in a waiting room filled with pitying looks and avoided glances. She wouldn’t let them take any more from her, no way. Even if it meant being stuck in this wheelchair. Even if it meant...

After War Is Faith Possible from the Author: Geoffrey A. Studdert Kennedy. There are no words foul and filthy enough to describe war. So declared Geoffrey Woodbine Willie Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929), a decorated frontline chaplain whose battlefield experiences in World War I transformed him into his generation's most eloquent defender of Christian pacificism. Studdert Kennedy was also a tireless champion of the social gospel who wrote a dozen books, scores of articles, hundreds of poems, and preached countless sermons in both the UK and the US promoting economic justice. Studdert Kennedy's writing and preaching influenced an entire generation. William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, described him as a true prophet. Even though he's fallen into obscurity with the passage of years, Studdert Kennedy's message still inspires the likes of Desmond Tutu and JĂżrgen Moltmann. This collection of Studdert Kennedy's work, the first in sixty years, seeks to introduce this most relevant of thinkers to our troubled times. The book pulls together Studdert Kennedy's most important writings on war and peace, poverty, the problem of evil, the church's role in the world, sin and atonement, the suffering God, love versus force as world powers, and the beloved community. Editor Kerry Walters introduces the texts with a biographical and thematic essay.

After The War from the Author: Alice Adams. “As always, Adams' strength is her fine, elegant language and the attention she pays to the minutiae of every day living. Like Jane Austen, she stays close to her characters and weaves intrigue out of their interrelated and complex life stories.” --San Jose Mercury News In her final novel, published posthumously, Alice Adams returns to the Southern college town of Pinehill, the setting for her acclaimed Southern Exposure. Even after five years in Pinehill, Cynthia Baird is still considered a Yankee. And life has become more difficult since the beginning of the war. With Harry stationed in London, Cynthia finds life in a small town complicated not only be loneliness but also by a growing awareness of local racism and anti-Semitism. Their daughter Abigail is about to return north for college, and the two generations are forced to determine what they cherish and what they must leave behind.
