Blue in green Blue in green

""Blue in Green"is a book that is equal parts subtle intelligence and generosity of heart. In it, Chiyuma Elliott creates a unique voice that returns again and again to the question of what we expect from one another, and how that question is transformed instead into a question of what we owe each other.

Mennonite valley girl - a wayward coming of age Mennonite valley girl - a wayward coming of age

"A funny and whip-smart memoir about a feisty young woman's quest for independence in an isolated Mennonite community. Carla Funk is a teenager with her hands on the church piano keys and her feet edging ever closer to the flames.

But she feels an increasing urge to push the l

The divine comedy - the new translation by Gerald J. Davis The divine comedy - the new translation by Gerald J. Davis

The Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia [di€vi|na kom€m[|dja]) is a long Italian narrative poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed in 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered to be the pre-eminent work in Italian literature and one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church by the 14th century. It helped establish the Tuscan
