“What if what you did mattered more because life happened again and again, consequences unfolding across decades and continents?...A relentlessly paced page-turner and a profound meditation on the meaning of life.” —Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan Train What happens to us after we die? What happens before we are born? At once a riveting mystery and a testament to the profound connection between a child and parent, The Forgetting Time will lead you to reevaluate everything you believe... What would you do if your four-year-old son claimed he had lived another life and that he wants to go back to it? That he wants his other mother? Single mom Janie is trying to figure out what is going on with her beloved son Noah. Noah has never been ordinary. He loves to make up stories, and he is constantly surprising her with random trivia someone his age has no right knowing. She always chalked it up to the fact that Noah was precocious—mature beyond his years. But Noah’s eccentricities are starting to become worrisome. One afternoon, Noah’s preschool teacher calls Janie: Noah has been talking about shooting guns and being held under water until he can’t breathe. Suddenly, Janie can’t pretend anymore. The school orders him to get a psychiatric evaluation. And life as she knows it stops for herself and her darling boy. For Jerome Anderson, life as he knows it has already stopped. Diagnosed with aphasia, his first thought as he approaches the end of his life is, I’m not finished yet. Once an academic star, a graduate of Yale and Harvard, a professor of psychology, he threw everything away to pursue an obsession: the stories of children who remembered past lives. Anderson became the laughing stock of his peers, but he never stopped believing that there was something beyond what anyone could see or comprehend. He spent his life searching for a case that would finally prove it. And with Noah, he thinks he may have found it. Soon, Noah, Janie, and Anderson will find themselves knocking on the door of a mother whose son has been missing for eight years. When that door opens, all of their questions will be answered. Gorgeously written and fearlessly provocative, Sharon Guskin’s debut explores the lengths we will go for our children. It examines what we regret in the end of our lives and hope for in the beginning, and everything in between.

Computer scientists have long appreciated that the relationship between algorithms and architecture is crucial. Broadly speaking the more specialized the architecture is to a particular algorithm then the more efficient will be the computation. The penalty is that the architecture will become useless for computing anything other than that algorithm. This message holds for the algorithms used in real-time automatic control as much as any other field. These Proceedings will provide researchers in this field with a useful up-to-date reference source of recent developments.

Σε μια μικρή πόλη της δυτικής Νιγηρίας τέσσερα νεαρά αδέλφια –ο μικρότερος είναι εννιά και ο μεγαλύτερος δεκαπέντε– εκμεταλλεύονται την απουσία του πατέρα τους από το σπίτι για να πάνε για ψάρεμα στο απαγορευμένο κοντινό ποτάμι. Εκεί θα συναντήσουν έναν επικίνδυνο τρελό που θα προφητεύσει ότι ο μεγαλύτερος αδελφός θα δολοφονηθεί από ένα από τα αδέλφια του. Αυτή η προφητεία θα σταθεί η αφορμή να διαλυθεί ο ισχυρός δεσμός τους και η αφετηρία μιας αλυσίδας τραγικών γεγονότων σχεδόν μυθικών διαστάσεων. Μια ιστορία αγάπης, μίσους και εκδίκησης που διαδραματίζεται με φόντο τις κοινωνικοπολιτικές εξελίξεις στη Νιγηρία της δεκαετίας του ’90. Μια συγκλονιστική αφήγηση με τη φωνή του μικρότερου αδελφού, του Μπέντζαμιν, και εξαιρετική χρήση της γλώσσας. Αναφορές στην αφρικάνικη φύση, στους μύθους και τις δοξασίες της Νιγηρίας, καταγραφή της καθημερινότητας με κύριο άξονα τη σύγκρουση μεταξύ παραδοσιακού και δυτικού τρόπου ζωής, σε ένα έξοχο πρώτο βιβλίο ενός λογοτέχνη που αξιοποιεί με μοντέρνο τρόπο την αφρικάνικη αφηγηματική παράδοση και φαίνεται να έχει μακρά καριέρα μπροστά του.

The unexpected and moving story of an American journalist who works to uncover her family’s long-buried Jewish ancestry in Spain. Raised a Catholic in California, New York Times journalist Doreen Carvajal is shocked when she discovers that her background may actually be connected to conversos in Inquisition-era Spain , Jews who were forced to renounce their faith and convert to Christianity or face torture and death. With vivid childhood memories of Sunday sermons, catechism, and the rosary, Carvajal travels to the south of Spain, to the centuries-old Andalucian town of Arcos de la Frontera, to investigate her lineage and recover her family’s original religious heritage. In Arcos, Carvajal is struck by the white pueblo's ancient beauty and the difficulty she encounters in probing the town's own secret history of the Inquisition. She comes to realize that fear remains a legacy of the Inquisition along with the cryptic messages left by its victims. Back at her childhood home in California, Carvajal uncovers papers documenting a family of Carvajals who were burned at the stake in the 16th-century territory of Mexico. Could the author’s family history be linked to the hidden history of Arcos? And could the unfortunate Carvajals have been her ancestors? As she strives to find proof that her family had been forced to convert to Christianity six-hundred years ago, Carvajal comes to understand that the past flows like a river through time –and that while the truth might be submerged, it is never truly lost.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER A powerfully engaging, scrupulously researched, and deeply empathetic narrative of the history of Alzheimer’s disease, how it affects us, and the search for a cure. Afflicting nearly half of all people over the age of 85, Alzheimer’s disease kills nearly 100,000 Americans a year as it insidiously robs them of their memory and wreaks havoc on the lives of their loved ones. It was once minimized and misunderstood as forgetfulness in the elderly, but Alzheimer’s is now at the forefront of many medical and scientific agendas, for as the world’s population ages, the disease will touch the lives of virtually everyone. David Shenk movingly captures the disease’s impact on its victims and their families, and he looks back through history, explaining how Alzheimer’s most likely afflicted such figures as Jonathan Swift, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Willem de Kooning. The result is a searing and graceful account of Alzheimer’s disease, offering a sobering, compassionate, and ultimately encouraging portrait.

A New York Times Notable Book! From Tatjana Soli, The New York Times bestselling author of The Lotus Eaters, comes a breathtaking novel of a California ranching family, its complicated matriarch, and the enigmatic caretaker who may destroy them When Claire Nagy marries Forster Baumsarg, the only son of prominent California citrus ranchers, she knows she's consenting to a life of hard work, long days, and worry-fraught nights. But her love for Forster is so strong, she turns away from her literary education and embraces the life of the ranch, succumbing to its intoxicating rhythms and bounty until her love of the land becomes a part of her. Not even the tragic, senseless death of her son Joshua at kidnappers' hands, her alienation from her two daughters, or the dissolution of her once-devoted marriage can pull her from the ranch she's devoted her life to preserving. But despite having survived the most terrible of tragedies, Claire is about to face her greatest struggle: an illness that threatens not only to rip her from her land but take her very life. And she's chosen a caregiver, the inscrutable, Caribbean-born Minna, who may just be the darkest force of all. Haunting, tough, triumphant, and profound, The Forgetting Tree explores the intimate ties we have to one another, the deepest fears we keep to ourselves, and the calling of the land that ties every one of us together.

"Taking seriously Augustine's idea that we find the divine in memory, MacKendrick argues that memory does not lead us back in time to a tidy answer but opens onto a complicated and fragmented time in which we find that the one and the many, before and after and now, even sacred and profane are complexly entangled. Time becomes something lived, corporeal, and sacred, with fragments of eternity interspersed among the stretches of its duration. Our sense of ourselves is correspondingly complex, because theological considerations lead us not to the security of an everlasting, indivisible soul dwelling comfortably in the presence of a paternal deity but to a more complicated, perpetually peculiar, and paradoxical life in the flesh."--BOOK JACKET.

Ο αστυνόμος Στίβεν Μόραν περίμενε καιρό να του δοθεί η ευκαιρία να περάσει το κατώφλι του Τμήματος Ανθρωποκτονιών του Δουβλίνου και η επιθυμία του γίνεται πραγματικότητα όταν ένα πρωί η δεκαεξάχρονη Χόλι Μακέι τού φέρνει αυτή τη φωτογραφία. Τη βρήκε αναρτημένη στον Τόπο των Μυστικών, έναν πίνακα όπου τα κορίτσια του ιδιωτικού σχολείου Σεντ Κίλντα μπορούν να αναρτήσουν ανώνυμα τα μυστικά τους. Συνήθως πρόκειται για κουτσομπολιά και κακεντρεχή σχόλια, αλλά σήμερα κάποιος τον χρησιμοποίησε για να πυροδοτήσει εκ νέου την έρευνα για τη δολοφονία του όμορφου και δημοφιλούς Κρις Χάρπερ. Ο Στίβεν θα ενώσει τις δυνάμεις του με τη σκληροτράχηλη αστυνόμο Αντουανέτ Κόνγουεϊ για να βρει τη λύση. Όλα τα στοιχεία οδηγούν τους δύο ντετέκτιβ στην κλίκα της Χόλι και στην κλίκα των αντίζηλών τους καθώς και σε έναν περίπλοκο ιστό σχέσεων και μυστικών που δένουν όλα αυτά τα κορίτσια με τον νεκρό Κρις Χάρπερ. Σε κάθε τους βήμα η πίεση αυξάνεται. Ο κόσμος των έφηβων αυτών κοριτσιών θα αποδειχθεί πολύ πιο επικίνδυνος απ’ ό,τι είχαν ποτέ φανταστεί οι δύο αστυνομικοί…

Scientists currently study memory from many different perspectives: neurobiological, ethological, animal conditioning, cognitive, behavioral neuroscience, social, and cultural. The aim of this book is to help initiate a new science of memory by bringing these perspectives together to create a unified understanding of the topic. The book began with a conference where leading practitioners from all these major approaches met to analyze and discuss 16 concepts that are crucial to our understanding of memory. Each of these 16 concepts is addressed in a section of the book, and in the 66 succinct chapters that fill these sections, a leading researcher addresses the section's concept by clearly stating his or her position on it, elucidating how it is used, and discussing how it should be used in future research. For some concepts, there is general agreement among practitioners from different fields and levels of analysis, but for others there is general disagreement and much controversy. A final chapter in each section, also written by a leading researcher, integrates the various viewpoints offered on the section's concept, then draws conclusions about the concept. This groundbreaking volume will be an indispensable reference for all the students and researchers who will build upon the foundation it provides for the new science of memory.

Lynne Huffer's ambitious inquiry redresses the rift between feminist and queer theory, traversing the space of a new, post-moral sexual ethics that includes pleasure, desire, connection, and betrayal. She begins by balancing queer theorists' politics of sexual freedoms with a moralizing feminist politics that views sexuality as harm. Drawing on the best insights from both traditions, she builds an ethics centered on eros, following Michel Foucault's ethics as a practice of freedom and Luce Irigaray's lyrical articulation of an ethics of sexual difference. Through this theoretical lens, Huffer examines everyday experiences of ethical connection and failure connected to sex, including queer sexual practices, sodomy laws, interracial love, pornography, and work-life balance. Her approach complicates sexual identities while challenging the epistemological foundations of subjectivity. She rethinks ethics "beyond good and evil" without underestimating, as some queer theorists have done, the persistence of what Foucault calls the "catastrophe" of morality. Elaborating a thinking-feeling ethics of the other, Huffer encourages contemporary intellectuals to reshape sexual morality from within, defining an ethical space that is both poetically suggestive and politically relevant, both conceptually daring and grounded in common sexual experience.
