Danilo Kiš,Ralph Manheim

"A finely sustained, complex fictional performance. It is full of pain and rage and gusto and joy of living, at once side-splitting and a heartbreaker".--WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD.

One hour to rewrite the past . . . For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back. So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past. Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened? Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.

Dani Shapiro

The best-selling novelist and memoirist delivers her most intimate and powerful work: a piercing, life-affirming memoir about marriage and memory, about the frailty and elasticity of our most essential bonds, and about the accretion, over time, of both sorrow and love. Hourglass is an inquiry into how marriage is transformed by time--abraded, strengthened, shaped in miraculous and sometimes terrifying ways by accident and experience. With courage and relentless honesty, Dani Shapiro opens the door to her house, her marriage, and her heart, and invites us to witness her own marital reckoning--a reckoning in which she confronts both the life she dreamed of and the life she made, and struggles to reconcile the girl she was with the woman she has become. What are the forces that shape our most elemental bonds? How do we make lifelong commitments in the face of identities that are continuously shifting, and commit ourselves for all time when the self is so often in flux? What happens to love in the face of the unexpected, in the face of disappointment and compromise--how do we wrest beauty from imperfection, find grace in the ordinary, desire what we have rather than what we lack? Drawing on literature, poetry, philosophy, and theology, Shapiro writes gloriously of the joys and challenges of matrimonial life, in a luminous narrative that unfurls with urgent immediacy and sharp intelligence. Artful, intensely emotional work from one of our finest writers. From the Hardcover edition.

The human mind, body and spirit is in constant need of an oasis to which it can constantly resort. In a world that is traveling faster than a rollercoaster, we will always find ourselves in a valley of decision The search for enlightenment, motivation and inspiration is the fuel that drives us and keeps us on the path we need to go. It allows us to go forward and not keep on going through the same revolving door in life. Words that inspire us and allows us to gain insight and question ourselves, will require answers to how we look at life and what we might have to do to change our perception about many different things. Sometimes words suddenly make us surprise ourselves, in realizing somewhere along life’s roll call, we have been missing a beat. We shock ourselves into admitting we were wrong or right about some things, but totally out of touch about other things, and like it or not we have to change our outlook Such is progress, but it also tells us something about ourselves, and how essential change is in all our lives in order to move forward in the march of time. “When wisdom enters your heart and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you, understanding will keep you. Proverbs 2:verse 10 & 11 “Reflections through an Hourglass” takes you on a tour of your heart and mind to your inner being so you might look into and question the meaning of your purpose in this life –“Every life is a Storybook”. – from the Introduction
