Abstract: An insightful and haunting new collection from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Charles Simic Irreverent and sly, observant and keenly imagined, Come Closer and Listen is the latest work from one of our most beloved poets. With his trademark sense of humor, open-hearted empathy, and perceptive vision, Charles Simic roots his poetry in the ordinary world while still taking in the wide sweep of the human experience. From poems pithy, wry, and cutting-"Time-that murderer/that no has caught yet"-to his layered reflections on everything from love to grief to the wonders of nature, from the story of St. Sebastian to that of a couple weeding side by side, Simic's work continues to reveal to us an unmistakable voice in modern poetry. An innovator in form and a chronicler of both our interior lives and the people we are in the world, Simic remains one of our most important and lasting voices on the page.

Abstract: Quando Ruth, la sua adorata nonna, le chiede di realizzare il suo ultimo desiderio prima di morire, Ellen Branford, giovane avvocato di New York, non esita un solo istante ad accettare e si mette subito in viaggio per esaudirlo: deve recapitare una lettera di Ruth al suo primo amore, nella cittadina di Beacon, Maine, patria dei campi di mirtilli. Il giorno del suo arrivo a Beacon, Ellen cade in acqua mentre sta facendo delle foto su un pontile e viene salvata da Roy, misterioso e affascinante sconosciuto, che lei, presa dall'enfasi del momento, ringrazia baciandolo con passione. Il giorno dopo, la foto del bacio è sulle pagine di tutti i quotidiani del posto ed Ellen diventa una piccola celebrità locale. Lei, che tra l'altro è a un passo dal matrimonio con Hayden, un giovane di ottima famiglia, non sa che pesci pigliare, e tutte le sue certezze e la sua vita preordinata cominciano a vacillare. La gentilezza degli abitanti del luogo, i ritmi piacevoli della provincia e il delizioso cibo le fanno ben presto dimenticare la vita fatta di apparenze che conduceva a New York. Quando Hayden si presenta a Beacon, Ellen non può più mentire a se stessa e deve affrontare l'attrazione sempre più forte che prova per Roy e capire cosa vuole veramente per sé. Hayden o Roy? New York o Beacon? La risposta è tutta in un irresistibile muffin ai mirtilli.

Abstract: This is not the Africa of Isak Dinsen or Joy Adamson. This is the Africa of civil wars and tribal massacres, where the Lord's Resistance Army drafts child-soldiers after forcing them to kill their parents and eat their hearts. The aid workers who voluntarily subject themselves to life here are a breed apart. Meet Hickey, an American in is late 30s, a school teacher who burned his bridges with the school board, and finds himself in Africa as an itinerant aid worker. Assisting an agency in Nairobi, one of his jobs is to drive food and medical supplies to an aid station in Southern Sudan run by Ruth, a middle-aged woman, who acts as nurse, doctor, hospice provider, feeder of starving children, and witness. Ruth is gruff but efficient and Hickey, who is usually drawn to youth and beauty, is struck by her devotion. When he returns to Nairobi he can't forget what he has seen. Violence and chaos in the region increase to fever pitch and aid workers are being murdered or evacuated. Hickey is asked to save Ruth overland by Jeep, and what happens to them and the children who have joined their flight is searing. In this stunning novel, Hoagland paints an unflinching portrait of human suffering at its worst, and yet amidst that suffering there is hope manifested by humility, sacrifice, and life-affirming friendship.

Abstract: I painted my world, my life, all the things I loved, all the things I dreamed of, all the things I could not say in words. I painted my beloved Russia, my hometown Vitebsk, the Jewish neighborhood where I grew up, the way I saw everything as a child. During prayers, he would daydream; in school, he was distracted; and at home he worried about what profession he should choose. But when the young Marc Chagall realized he had artistic talent, he translated his unusual way of looking at the world into color and shape. Chagall grew up, became a painter, and traveled the world, but he never forgot about his hometown of Vitebsk, the place that shaped his character and inspired his art. This book, loosely based on Chagalls autobiography, gives readers a glimpse into the early life of one of the twentieth centurys most significant painters. Landmanns charming three-dimensional mixed media illustrations celebrate the colorful, the whimsical, and the extraordinary aspects of Chagalls life and work.

Abstract: After defeating the Trojans in an intense, ten-year war, the Greeks' courageous leader, Ulysses, king of Ithaca, begins the voyage home with his soldiers. There his faithful wife, Penelope, and his young son, Telemachus, await him. Ulysses never imagines that the journey home will be another ten-year quest in which he must confront all kinds of terrifying obstacles, including giant cannibals, one-eyed monsters, an enchantress who turns his men into pigs, and the tempting song of sea nymphs who try to lure him and his men to their death. But Ulysses is a daring and clever man, willing to take on all that life and the gods put in his path in order to reach his home. This retelling of the Greek poet Homer's epic tale is accompanied by beautiful and bold illustrations reminiscent of ancient Greek art. The graphic-novel-like style of the book, in which text and illustrations are tightly interwoven, creates a compelling world filled with drama and mystery certain to draw in young readers. Ages nine to twelve.
