The debut novel of an astonishing voice in psychological suspense As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours. Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past. Richly atmospheric, stunning in its complexity, and utterly convincing and surprising to the end, In the Woods is sure to enthrall fans of Mystic River and The Lovely Bones.

This book offers an original account of the construction of the past in contemporary literature, showing how its transgressive representations of time and space articulate new forms of social experience. Ranging widely across post-war fiction, poetry, and drama, the book reassesses the influential configuration of beliefs that modern culture has lost its history, that memory is memory of trauma, and that space and time have changed under the impact of new sciences, technologies, and social formations.

Fiction. SPINNING WILL is the story of a woman's journey to awareness as she comes to understand her long-term -- and mostly long-distance -- affair with a married man. We follow Nora on a cross-country exploration away from California, away from Will, to small town, upstate New York where her fresh start is challenged by Will's reemergence. SPINNING WILL follows the logic of memory; each recollection from Nora is a key that opens a door in a self-reflective journey toward a new life. "SPINNING WILL is a wonderfully seductive book, a tale whose hypnotic language migrates between the rocky California coast and the slow, steady flow of the Hudson River, between the sorrow and exuberance of leaving one life for another"--Joyce Hinnefeld.

The year is 1962. The family of fourteen-year-old Kevin Collins, caught in white flight, has moved from Beverly, its South Side of Chicago neighborhood, to the city’s northern suburbs. The field of Kevin’s most formative boyhood adventures was Ryan’s Woods, the great South Side forest preserve, mysterious, beautiful, running along the city’s western edge a full mile from 83rd Street to 91st. It now serves as the frame for his memories. Memories of a villain enemy, of games hard-fought as wars, of moments of fear or courage, of moments that transcend racial division, and of first love in all the pure strength of its innocence. Memories, still fresh, of best friendships that Kevin now feels will be forever unrecoverable. And memories especially of his greatest friend, Jackie Leonard, whose death at age thirteen has moved Kevin to turn memory into story.

"An assured, powerful novel that blends suspense and rich family drama...it is, in a word, unforgettable." --William Landay, author of DEFENDING JACOB It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect. Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world. As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town - or perhaps lives among them - drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

"Eerie, dark, and compelling, [The Book of M] will not disappoint lovers of The Passage (2010) and Station Eleven (2014)." --Booklist WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP TO REMEMBER? Set in a dangerous near future world, The Book of M tells the captivating story of a group of ordinary people caught in an extraordinary catastrophe who risk everything to save the ones they love. It is a sweeping debut that illuminates the power that memories have not only on the heart, but on the world itself. One afternoon at an outdoor market in India, a man’s shadow disappears—an occurrence science cannot explain. He is only the first. The phenomenon spreads like a plague, and while those afflicted gain a strange new power, it comes at a horrible price: the loss of all their memories. Ory and his wife Max have escaped the Forgetting so far by hiding in an abandoned hotel deep in the woods. Their new life feels almost normal, until one day Max’s shadow disappears too. Knowing that the more she forgets, the more dangerous she will become to Ory, Max runs away. But Ory refuses to give up the time they have left together. Desperate to find Max before her memory disappears completely, he follows her trail across a perilous, unrecognizable world, braving the threat of roaming bandits, the call to a new war being waged on the ruins of the capital, and the rise of a sinister cult that worships the shadowless. As they journey, each searches for answers: for Ory, about love, about survival, about hope; and for Max, about a new force growing in the south that may hold the cure. Like The Passage and Station Eleven, this haunting, thought-provoking, and beautiful novel explores fundamental questions of memory, connection, and what it means to be human in a world turned upside down.

Into the Woods is an experimental culinary project and research study that interweaves archetypal storytelling with culinary expression to illuminate the connections between memory, identity and community engagement. Participants in experimental groups were led on a three week journey that engaged multiple senses while encouraging reflection, insight and stronger community cohesiveness. Qualitative inquiry and methodology was applied throughout the project's design with special attention to the theoretical approaches of Narratology, Jungian psychology and Feminist theory. Research looked for emergent themes related to participant's social, psychological, cultural and spiritual experiences in Into the Woods and any notable changes in how the women saw themselves and interacted with others. The combination of richly dynamic archetypal stories with the multisensory experience of commensality, writing and communication tapped into a unique format for social, psychological, and spiritual growth. Participants gained greater insight into self, explored personal narratives and forged meaningful relationships. The multi-disciplinary nature of Into the Woods crosses into the terrain of Anthropology, Food Studies and Psychology, recognizing the importance of narratives, intimate exchanges between research and participant, and the multiple meanings embodied in food. Research collected highlights the importance of encouraging community based design developments that center on nurturing food traditions, rituals and community storytelling.
