Publisher: Vintage Canada
At the age of eighty, Don Gillmor's grandmother let slip the defining secret of her life: her twin sister Jean was not her twin, but her aunt, and her family had emigrated from Scotland to Winnipeg to escape the stigma of her illegitimacy. That revelation set Gillmor off on what seemed at first like the most personal of quests: to track down his ancestors. The Desire of Every Living Thing is also the story of the New World, the story of Winnipeg, the story of this country. Both an evocative family memoir and a brilliant feat of historical imagination, the book's most moving theme is how the discarded past haunts and shapes our lives without us even noticing.
But he was like the inescapable fact of my own being—and in some strange,
uncanny way, as if he were my twin, he gave me the feeling of being fully and
wholly alive, and realising it all the time I was with him or when he was near. I

This Ms. is written in the romantic adventure genre, with the various love affairs of the characters taking place against the 1960S backdrop of South West Africa and Angola, when it declared its independence from Portugal, becoming the Peoples Republic of Angola in November 1975. The characters include: * Nord, the only son of the farming Nordman family. His actual mother is a Nama girl, of Dutch and Khoi-Khoi descent. He is brought up by the farmers Dutch wife, Grietje, as her own son. * Emilie, the daughter of the wealthy neighbouring farmer, Antonin, and his wife, Gina. Emilie is born when Nord is 12 years of age (and like a member of their family). Emilies mother dies after a snake- bite on the farm when Emilie is 6 years old. * Shaba is a young African boy who loses his family in a village massacre in Zaire. He flees with his grandfather, the only surviving family of the ruling chief, and they disappear into the highlands of neighbouring Angola. A lonely child, his grandfather looks after him, but only with a sense of duty. He finds consolation with a herd of the royal black sable, following them in the forests until he is 10 years of age, when he accompanies his grandfather, recruited by Antonin to work for him on the farm in South West Africa. When Emilie learns to walk, the 15 year-old Shaba becomes her guardian. * Ki is the Bushman who is sent to the Nordman farm when he loses his right hand in a trap. He adopts the young boy as his spiritual son, and teaches him to live in the bush. Nord adopts his values and his expertise, which stands him in good stead when he becomes a reconnaissance scout for the South West African police force on the border of South West and Angola in the 1960s and 70s. The Bushman is always in the background, and an integral part of the novel.

This anthology pays tribute to Allan Berube (1946-2007), a self-taught historian and MacArthur Fellow who was a pioneer in the study of lesbian and gay history in the United States. Best known for his Lambda Literary Award-winning book Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women in World War II (1990), Berube also wrote extensively on the history of sexual politics in San Francisco and on the relationship between sexuality, class, and race. John D'Emilio and Estelle Freedman, who were close colleagues and friends of Berube, have selected sixteen of his most important essays, including hard-to-access articles and unpublished writing. The book provides a retrospective on Berube's life and work while it documents the emergence of a grassroots lesbian and gay community history movement in the 1970s and 1980s. Taken together, the essays attest to the power of history to mobilize individuals and communities to create social change.

Alcoholism has been alive and well in both my families for as long as I can remember. Only, I didn’t know that caused my family members to behave as they did. Sometimes they laughed and had a good time, and sometimes there was great sadness. There is no denial in admitting or accepting that. That is how the cookie crumbles. I love them very much, and they are very important in my life. They indeed are my backbone, and I will never forget that. It is very hard at times, and trust me when I say it certainly is, but that is just life. I have to try that much harder to overcome my own alcoholism. Oh, well.

From crimes of heart and crimes of violence, A CITY EQUAL TO MY DESIRE effortlessly guides you through the narrows of human existence in all its forms. In this selection of new stories, James Sallis, author of the acclaimed Lew Griffin series of detective novels, both entertains and engages the mind with stories that will linger in memory long after they've been experienced. "Sallis wants to take your experience of the world, mutate it to the edge of recognition, and then deliver it back before your eyes like a coin pulled from behind your earlobe. And in this way, he makes you see and feel, all over again, the meaning, the beauty-and, pointedly sometimes, the horror-of being human." Jack O'Connell from his introduction

God has afforded us the pleasure, the privilege, the victory and the position thru His Son Jesus to worship Him. Worship is what our souls seek. Worship is when we bow and ascend in His presence. Worship is what the soul longs for. I pray this book will ignite that spot that was made and created for the Creator, by the Creator and only He can satisfy. Worship is that rich, wealthy, prosperous place of peace, joy, and wholeness that ONLY GOD can fill. When reading, confessing, praying, agreeing with these prayers you will experience satisfaction in your soul. When we acknowledge God’s Love we can’t help but to worship. God is in love with us, and desires our fellowship. He satisfies! He is better than sex, drugs, alcohol, fame, fortune, wealth, accolades, or accomplishments. He’s better than anything this world can offer. He satisfies the thirsty and the hungry. He heals the hurting, He fixes the broken and He redeems the lost. Great God, Yes He is!!!!. He loves us and we should love Him back! When we make it about Him, He makes it about us!!! I’m amazed by Him, how much He loves us!!!!!

Another book in the series of theological interpretations of the Seventh Day Adventists, this book cover the life and ministry of Jesus and she tells quite a different story about Jesus compared to the rest of her contemporaries since she heavily relies on mystical experience in order to make her theological conclusions. Like her other books this one has been fought against by theologians in all times but helps to make us realize what is God's truth.

We seem to be abandoning the codes that told previous generations who they should love. But now that many of us are free to choose whoever we want, nothing is less certain. The proliferation of divorces and separations reveal a dynamic we would rather not see: others sometimes reject us as passionately as we are attracted to them. Our desire makes us sick. The throes of rivalry are at the heart of our attraction to one another. This is the central thesis of Jean-Michel Oughourlian's The Genesis of Desire, where the war of the sexes is finally given a scientific explanation. The discovery of mirror neurons corroborates his ideas, clarifying the phenomena of empathy and the mechanisms of violent reciprocity. How can a couple be saved when they have declared war on one another? By helping them realize that desire originates not in the self but in the other. There are strategies that can help, which Dr. Oughourlian has prescribed successfully to his patients. This work, alternating between case studies and more theoretical statements, convincingly defends the possibility that breakups need not be permanent.

Being and Ambiguity, while making use of the methods of the Western tradition, proposes a paradigm shift derived from Chinese Buddhism's Tiantai school. Using Tiantai's ?Three Truths,” Ziporyn brings insights to questions of identity, determinacy, contextuality, being, desire, boredom, addiction, love, and truth. By turns rigorously analytic and irreverent, the book offers a meaningful and enjoyable reading experience in comparative philosophy.
