Homer’s Iliad can justly be called the world’s greatest war epic. The terrible and long-drawn-out siege of Troy remains one of the classic campaigns. the heroism and treachery of its combatants unmatched in song and story. Driven by fierce passions and loyalties. men and gods battle to a devastating conclusion. „Homer is full of merriment. full of open fun and delicate comedy. even farce-as when Ares. wounded. bursts up to Olympus like a bomb. And the divine family! What a delightful natural party: human beings raised a degree or two. but all the same. funnier than that. They are the comic background for the tragedy below-for the story of Achilles is a tragedy-the fiery conflict of a man divided against himself. who in a few short days drops to the lowest hell of savagery. then rises to self-mastery and inward peace.”-W.H.D. Rouse

Life You Save May Be Your Own
In the middle of the twentieth century. four American Catholics. working independently of one another. came to believe that the best way to explore the quandaries of religious faith was in writing. The four writers were Thomas Merton. Dorothy Day. Flannery O’Connor. and Walker Percy. Called the School of the Holy Ghost. for three decades they exchanged letters. ardently read each others’ books. and grappled with what one of them called a „predicament shared in common.” Paul Elie tells these four writers’ story as a pilgrimage from the God-obsessed literary past to the chaos of postwar American life. It is a story about the ways we look to great books and writers to help us make sense of our experience. and the power of literature to change-and to save-our lives.

„When I was little I would think of ways to kill my daddy. I would figure out this or that way and run it down through my head until it got easy.” So begins the tale of Ellen Foster. the brave and engaging heroine of Kaye Gibbons’s first novel. which won the Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Wise. funny. affectionate and true. Ellen Foster is. as Walker Percy called it. „The real thing. Which is to say. a lovely. sometimes heart/wrenching novel…[Ellen Foster] is as much a part of the backwoods South as a Faulkner character and a good deal more endearing.”
