May Bahar writes from the future about her life, especially one part that haunts her, a part that takes place in our present. She looks back at her life and considers it perfectly ordinary. She had her talents, but so does everyone. She had her ups and downs, but so does everyone. She had drama, and comedy, good ideas, bad ideas, things that worked out, and things that did not. When she returned to her war-torn homeland, May found it so altered, she felt like a refugee again. In her attempt to make a place for herself, May goes to Café River. There, she engages in conversations with one-legged, handsome and witty barman Benjamin. May’s unique perspectives of the social issues regarding economics, feminism, politics, religion and such earn her respect and admiration. However, she lost her place in the world again, and it was not because it was discovered that her estranged father is one of the worst war criminals.

I'll Take You There

In this radiant homage to the resiliency, strength, and power of women, Wally Lamb—author of numerous New York Times bestselling novels including She’s Come Undone, I Know This Much is True, and We Are Water—weaves an evocative, deeply affecting tapestry of one Baby Boomer's life and the trio of unforgettable women who have changed it. I’ll Take You There centers on Felix, a film scholar who runs a Monday night movie club in what was once a vaudeville theater. One evening, while setting up a film in the projectionist booth, he’s confronted by the ghost of Lois Weber, a trailblazing motion picture director from Hollywood’s silent film era. Lois invites Felix to revisit—and in some cases relive—scenes from his past as they are projected onto the cinema’s big screen. In these magical movies, the medium of film becomes the lens for Felix to reflect on the women who profoundly impacted his life. There’s his daughter Aliza, a Gen Y writer for New York Magazine who is trying to align her post-modern feminist beliefs with her lofty career ambitions; his sister, Frances, with whom he once shared a complicated bond of kindness and cruelty; and Verna, a fiery would-be contender for the 1951 Miss Rheingold competition, a beauty contest sponsored by a Brooklyn-based beer manufacturer that became a marketing phenomenon for two decades. At first unnerved by these ethereal apparitions, Felix comes to look forward to his encounters with Lois, who is later joined by the spirits of other celluloid muses. Against the backdrop of a kaleidoscopic convergence of politics and pop culture, family secrets, and Hollywood iconography, Felix gains an enlightened understanding of the pressures and trials of the women closest to him, and of the feminine ideals and feminist realities that all women, of every era, must face.

Centre/center

Centre/Center begins on the eve of the American lunar mission in 1969. A group of friends celebrate a moon wake on the Pacific shore of California, fearful of the cosmic consequences of the impending technological defilement of Diana, the virginal moon goddess who presides over children, the hunt, and the virgin forest. Presented as a tryptich of three novellas spanning two generations, each interrelated section is set a decade apart, and the unfolding lives of these characters are seen from the perspective of a different member of the group in each panel. Throughout, there is a gradual movement of characters from America, to what is perceived as the unspoiled neighbor to the north, Canada. The last panel is narrated in 1989 by the young daughter of one of the original protagonists. With an increasing sense of bewilderment, she deconstructs the personal mythologies so carefully embroidered by her father and his friends over an entire generation. Centre/Center is a moving and poignant good-bye to a country, an era, and the naive illusions held so dearly by a whole post-war generation in North Amenca.
