Book Short Summary:

I will die tomorrow. I am barely over twenty years of age, and yet when the sun rolls over the horizon tomorrow, I will take my final steps towards eternity's abyss. I am not an old man dying in my bed, nor am I a screaming soldier about to be killed as I run into battle. Instead, I am me, a simple kid from the Midwest who has lived through things that many will never experience in a lifetime of existence. I'm writing this right now as a weary traveler ready for the sleep of paradise. I have made my peace, and I have readied myself for that long trip home. If you have read this, I plead with you to pay no attention to me, instead look at yourself. Hug your kids, hold your loved ones, take a look around and soak it in, because the unexpected is just around the corner.

Book Short Summary:

The touching and nuanced portrait of the rise and fall of Nazi Germany through the eyes of a resourceful German boy. Ludwig is an odd and introverted child, growing up in Hitler’s Germany. While Ludwig’s father, Wilhelm, is a senior Nazi and a true believer, Ludwig escapes the unfolding catastrophe by withdrawing into nature and books. Eventually, when the Allied bombing campaign intensifies, Ludwig is sent to a Hitler Youth camp, where his oddness makes him a target for bullying. As the war turns against Germany, the Hitler Youth camp becomes ever more severe and militaristic, and the atmosphere spirals towards chaos. After the Nazis abandon the camp, Ludwig returns home, and his father is presumed dead. With Ludwig’s mother descending into depression, the 11-year-old bears increasing responsibility for the survival of the family as starvation sets in under Russian occupation. Soon, it will be impossible to leave the Russian zone, so Ludwig decides that he must rally his despondent mother and lead her and his three younger siblings in an escape attempt to the west. Based on a true story, The Willow Wren is a unique, touching exploration of extremism, resilience, and the triumph of the small.

Book Short Summary:

Octavio Paz (México, 1914–1998) was one of the foremost poets and essayists of the twentieth century. Read in translations into many of the world’s languages, Paz received numerous awards and prizes during his lifetime, participated in major artistic and political movements of the twentieth century, served as Mexico’s ambassador in India (1962–1968), and was the editor of Plural and Vuelta, two literary journals of prominent influence in Mexico, Latin America, and Spain. In 1990 Paz was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. This book of essays is a commemoration of Octavio Paz on the first centenary of his birth, a celebration undertaken with Paz’s distinguishing legacy: criticism, internationally inclusive, and open to differing viewpoints. The Willow and the Spiral: Essays on Octavio Paz and the Poetic Imagination contains studies in English and in Spanish by top-ranking Paz scholars from various continents and wide-ranging literary traditions, as well as by an emerging generation of critics who approach the work of Octavio Paz from diverse and recent theoretical methods. Specially written for this volume, the fourteen essays are in-depth studies of Paz’s poetry and essays in relation to art, eroticism, literary history, politics, the art of translation, and to Paz’s life-long reflections on world cultures and civilizations as represented by China, France, India, Japan, the United States and, among others, Mesoamerica. The essays range from new critical analyses of Piedra de sol (Sunstone) and Blanco, to studies of Renga, the haiku tradition and, among other topics, Marcel Duchamp and the literary Avant-Garde. This book will be of importance to Paz scholars, teachers, students, and the general reader interested in Octavio Paz and in topics related to artistic, literary, and cultural movements that shaped the twentieth century and that continue to inspire and steer artists and writers in the twenty-first century.

Book Short Summary:

In May 1940, Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt called for the production of 50,000 military airplanes. He then drafted the president of General Motors, William Knudsen, to mobilize industry in the United States. The automotive companies were called upon to produce a massive fleet of bombers, as well as tanks, trucks, guns, and engines. By the Willow Run, a sleepy little creek near Ypsilanti, Michigan, Ford Motor Company built the world’s most famous bomber factory, which was the ultimate manifestation of the automotive industry’s role in building armaments during World War II. By the spring of 1944, Willow Run was producing a four-engine B-24 bomber each hour on an assembly line. With tremendous assistance from the Yankee Air Museum, this book presents a pictorial history of Willow Run during World War II.

Book Short Summary:

Life is hard enough growing up Odawa in the middle of the twentieth century, but when you are nineteen and discover that what you thought was your life story isn’t, the shock can be devastating. Tehya reacts as any young adult might, demanding answers to the questions that have haunted her most of her life. She struggles to find her way back to the truth she believed was hers forever. Beginning with an indigenous people living near what today is called Lake Michigan, this sweeping historical novel celebrates the wisdom of Indian culture while lamenting lost love, injustice, and death. In addition to Tehya, this is a story of Hands at Work, known by all as Naukee; Faces West, known by all as Lenaya; and other strong Indian women. All of them share a noble heritage with links and ties to ancient warriors, chieftains, healers, treaty signers, and more recent public servants. It is a story woven with threads of family ancestry, survival, and resilience borne of the willow. The voices speak heart-rending truths about how two races of people came face-to-face, forced to learn how to live together within boundaries – often amid forces beyond their control.

Iris Paisley doesn’t know that she committed a horrific crime of passion in a past life, for all souls lose their memory upon entering a new body. She believes she is merely unlucky when catastrophe follows her, from losing loved ones, to a war breaking out across the world. In actuality, the universe is carefully coordinating these hardships, to correct the steep karmic imbalance her prior incarnation caused. Iris finds refuge from her avalanching life in her dreams, where she is visited by a charismatic stranger named Mada Retina. As Iris falls in love with him, she makes the startling discovery that he is not a figment of her imagination, but a real man that she can see in the flesh—if she is willing to make some sacrifices. Iris and Mada are actively fighting on opposite sides of the war that is raging. Choosing him will mean forsaking her friends and potentially costing them the victory they so desperately seek. It doesn’t occur to Iris that Mada’s love may be yet another ploy, a trap set by the orchestrators of fate, to make her pay for the crime she left to fester over centuries.

Book Short Summary:

A high-flying tour of British aviation history—and the sites where trials and triumphs took place. From the beginning of the nineteenth century, Britain was at the forefront of powered flight. Across the country, many places became centers of innovation and experimentation, as increasing numbers of daring men took to the skies. In 1799, at Brompton Hall, Sir George Cayley Bart put forward ideas that formed the basis of powered flight. There were balloon flights at Hendon from 1862, though attempts at powered flights from the area, later used as the famous airfield, don’t seem to have been particularly successful. Despite this, Louis Bleriot established a flying school there in 1910. It was gliders that Percy Pilcher flew from the grounds of Stamford Hall, Leicestershire, during the 1890s. He was killed in a crash there in 1899, but Pilcher had plans for a powered aircraft which experts believe may well have enabled him to beat the Wright Brothers in becoming the first to make a fixed-wing powered flight. At Brooklands, unsuccessful attempts were made to build and fly a powered aircraft in 1906—but on June 8, 1908, A.V. Roe made what is considered the first powered flight in Britain from there—in reality a short hop—in a machine of his own design and construction, enabling Brooklands to call itself the birthplace of British aviation. These are just a few of the places investigated in this intriguing look at the early days of British aviation, which includes the first ever aircraft factory in Britain in the railway arches at Battersea; Larkhill on Salisbury Plain, which became the British Army’s first airfield; and Barking Creek, where Frederick Handley Page established his first factory.

Book Short Summary:

Before Franklin Roosevelt declared December 7 to be a “date which will live in infamy”; before American soldiers landed on D-Day; before the B-17s, B-24s, and B-29s roared over Europe and Asia, there was Willow Run. Located twenty-five miles west of Detroit, the bomber plant at Willow Run and the community that grew up around it attracted tens of thousands of workers from across the United States during World War II. Together, they helped build the nation’s “Arsenal of Democracy,” but Willow Run also became the site of repeated political conflicts over how to build suburbia while mobilizing for total war. In Planning the Home Front, Sarah Jo Peterson offers readers a portrait of the American people—industrialists and labor leaders, federal officials and municipal leaders, social reformers, industrial workers, and their families—that lays bare the foundations of community, the high costs of racism, and the tangled process of negotiation between New Deal visionaries and wartime planners. By tying the history of suburbanization to that of the home front, Peterson uncovers how the United States planned and built industrial regions in the pursuit of war, setting the stage for the suburban explosion that would change the American landscape when the war was won.
