A group of friends reunite after one of them has returned from a mysterious two-year disappearance in this edgy and haunting debut. Julie is missing, and no one believes she will ever return—except Elise. Elise knows Julie better than anyone, and feels it in her bones that her best friend is out there and that one day Julie will come back. She’s right. Two years to the day that Julie went missing, she reappears with no memory of where she’s been or what happened to her. Along with Molly and Mae, their two close friends from college, the women decide to reunite at a remote inn. But the second Elise sees Julie, she knows something is wrong—she’s emaciated, with sallow skin and odd appetites. And as the weekend unfurls, it becomes impossible to deny that the Julie who vanished two years ago is not the same Julie who came back. But then who—or what—is she?

The Return of the Soldier tells the story of a shell-shocked soldier who returns home from the First World War believing that he is in love with a working-class woman from his past, rather than married to his aristocratic wife. His family and doctor must decide whether to allow him to remain safely in his delusion, or to bring him back to reality and return him to the front. A brief novel with a seemingly simple plot, it is a classic of modernist literature and provides a point of entry into discussions of some of the twentieth century's most enduring themes. Appendices include textual variants, patriotic and antiwar verse from World War I, war journalism by West, contemporary paintings and propaganda posters, and material on shell-shock.

"The scholars who have contributed to this volume of essays are Jewish and Christian thinkers who, without melding their different religious traditions and scholarly methods, have developed complementary responses to what they believe is wrong with contemporary biblical scholarship in Judaism and Christianity. The purpose of this collection is to draw attention to the similarities among these responses and to the possibility that they may contribute to a family of postcritical methods for interpreting the scriptural traditions." "The postcritical scholars employ current methods of critical, scientific inquiry to clarify the language the historical contexts and the didactic messages of the biblical traditions. They do not, however, find these methods sufficient. They argue that the biblical traditions communicate to their practitioners some rules of action that cannot be deciphered within the terms set by canons of critical reason that emerged in the European Renaissance and Enlightenment. Rather, among the Bible's unique rules of action are the principles for interpreting the traditions themselves." "Postcritical scholars attempt to identify these rules of interpretation producing what editor Peter Ochs has come to term "postcritical Scriptural interpretation." It is neither strictly modern nor premodern. This form of inquiry emerges in the dialogue that is now unfolding between a contemporary family of scholars and their scriptural traditions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

WINNER OF THE 2017 PULITZER PRIZE: from Man Booker Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Hisham Matar, a memoir of his journey home to his native Libya in search of answers to his father's disappearance. In 2012, after the overthrow of Qaddafi, the acclaimed novelist Hisham Matar journeys to his native Libya after an absence of thirty years. When he was twelve, Matar and his family went into political exile. Eight years later Matar's father, a former diplomat and military man turned brave political dissident, was kidnapped from the streets of Cairo by the Libyan government and is believed to have been held in the regime's most notorious prison. Now, the prisons are empty and little hope remains that Jaballa Matar will be found alive. Yet, as the author writes, hope is "persistent and cunning." Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for biography/autobiography, the PEN/Jean Stein Book Award, France's Prix du livre étranger, and a finalist for the Orwell Book Prize and the 2016 National Book Critics Circle Award, The Return is a brilliant and affecting portrait of a country and a people on the cusp of immense change, and a disturbing and timeless depiction of the monstrous nature of absolute power.

Whether you call it the "return of Christ," "the Second Coming," or the "Rapture," there has been so much debate over the centuries about what the Bible teaches. Many have concluded the subject of Jesus' return is too complicated, or too confusing to understand. One reader said... "Reading, The Return was my 'light bulb' moment. Although God’s master pieces can be complicated, His past, present and future master plan for His creation is quite simple and easy to understand. The Return grips you with an almost unbelievable and detailed story of Christ’s return, then shines the light on what the Bible says, rather than trusting the blind to lead the blind. God is not the author of confusion. So why have we been so confused for so long? Until now…" Begins with a story of how the return of Christ could happen, and then explains the scriptures and compares the different views of Christ's return.

An intense, psychologically charged domestic drama, The Return is a brilliant and haunting exploration of the insecurities that lie at the heart of human relationships. When successful businessman Alvan Hervey begins his daily journey back from the city, he has no idea what awaits him at home--for there, on his bedroom table, is a letter from his wife, confessing her ultimate betrayal: she has left him for another man. But no sooner has this awful truth begun to sink in, than Hervey finds himself face to face with his wife as she returns to make one last desperate attempt to save their marriage. With their world in tatters around them, husband and wife are forced to confront the truth. Acclaimed by F.R. Leavis as one of "the very great novelists in the language," Joseph Conrad is best known for his chilling work Heart of Darkness.
