A Hunger for the Holy

by Calvin Miller

Using the imagery of the psalms as a backdrop, author Calvin Miller explores our hunger for intimacy with our Holy God. Insisting that the pathway to God's holiness is through a journey into our own selves, Miller yet maintains that our end is not to know ourselves but to know Christ. Our hunger for the Holy leads us to a table for two in a quiet wilderness. Here, Miller says, we meet as "ardent lovers in the lonely desert of the human heart. There, he speaks as much as we do, and even when both of us say nothing, we are rapt in a welded oneness." In Miller's inimitable style, he graciously invites us to satisfy our hunger for the holiness of God as we meditate on the psalms and are challenged to know the God of the universe in a personal, intimate relationship.

The Hunger Moon: New and Selected Poems, 1980-2010

by Marge Piercy

This new gathering of Marge Piercy's poems--energetic, funny, political, full of vitality--brings us the heart of her mature work, the first selected since Circles on the Water in 1982. Here are poems that chart the milestone events and fierce passions of her middle years: the death of her mother, whom we meet first as a young woman, "awkwardly lovely, her face / pure as a single trill perfectly / prolonged on a violin," and again as an older woman musing on what the afterlife may hold for her. There is a new marriage which she celebrates not only for romantic beginnings but also for the more intimate details that emerge over time: "love cherishes too the backpockets, / the pencil ends of childhood fears." Some poems convey her long-held, never-wavering political convictions, which she declares in language unmistakably and colorfully her own, as when she encourages her feminist readers to go to the opera instead of the movies because at least there the heroine is real, "fifty and weighs as much as a '65 Chevy with fins."Living out to sea on Cape Cod settles her into the rhythm of seasons and provides poems of planting and harvests, odes to tomatoes and roses, tributes to the power and freedom of whales. And in these years she rediscovers her Jewish heritage, celebrating holidays and making of them something new and original. She begins to examine her own legacy:I have worn the faces, the masksof hieroglyphs, gods and demons,bat faced ghosts, sibyls and thieves, lover, loser, red rose and ragweed, these are the tracks I have lefton the white crust of time.From the Hardcover edition.

Hunger: A Novella and Stories

by Lan Samantha Chang

The characters who inhabit this extraordinary fictional debut are caught between the burden of their past history and the fragility of their unchartered future. Hunger illuminates how first-generation immigrants from China, culturally and emotionally uprooted from their homeland, mistrust connection even as they hunger for attachment and how the past affects and shapes their children. In luminous prose, these moving stories of love and loss explore the profound and painful ties between husband and wife, parent and child, sister and sister. The stunning title novella is told by a woman whose love for an exiled musician compels her into a tragic marriage in which her husband's unfulfilled desires nearly destroy their children. In other stories, a ghost seduces a young girl into a flooded river; a mother commands a daughter to avenge her father's death. Lan Samantha Chang weaves the forces of war and magic, food and desire, ghosts and family, into haunting tales. Again and again, Chang asks the question: is love not a kind of burden, stifling and terrifying in the choices and responsibilities it forces on us? And yet we yearn for it, define ourselves by our experience of it, cannot live without it.

Hunger's Brides

by Paul Anderson

An epic novel of genius and obsession -- apocalyptic, lyrical and erotically charged. Spanning three centuries and two cultures, Hunger's Brides brings to vivid life the greatest Spanish poet of her time, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, and plumbs a mystery that has intrigued writers as diverse as Robert Graves, Diane Ackerman, Eduardo Galeano and Nobel laureate Octavio Paz. Why did a writer of such gifts silence herself? At the time of her death in 1695, Juana Inés de la Cruz was arguably the greatest writer working in any European tongue, yet she had never set foot in Europe. Instead she was born among the descendants of the Aztec empire, in the shadow of the mountain pass Cortés and his troops descended on their advance to Montezuma's capital. A child prodigy from a barbarous wilderness, her beauty and wit provoked a sensation at the viceregal court in Mexico City. But at the age of nineteen, still a favourite of the court, Juana entered a convent, and from that point her life unfolded between the mystery of her sudden flight from palace to cloister, and the enigma of her final vow of silence, signed in blood. After a quarter-century of graceful, often sensuous poetry, plays and theological argument, Sor Juana chose silence, which she maintained until she died of plague at the age of forty-five. Drawing on chronicles of the conquest and histories of the Inquisition, myth cycles and archeological studies, ancient poetry and early Spanish accounts of blood sacrifice,Hunger's Bridesis a mammoth work of inspired historical fiction framed in a contemporary mystery. In the dead of a Calgary winter night, a man escapes from an apartment in which a young woman lies bleeding -- in his arms he clutches a box he has found on her table addressed to him. He is Donald Gregory, a once-respected, now-disgraced, academic. She is Beulah Limosneros, one of his students, and for a brief time his lover. Brilliant, erratic, voracious, she had disappeared two years earlier in Mexico, following the thread of her growing obsession with Sor Juana. Over the ensuing days and weeks, as a police investigation closes in around him, Gregory pieces together the contents of the box she has left him: a poetic journal of her travel in Mexico, diaries, research notes, unposted letters, and a strange manuscript -- part biography, part novel -- on Sor Juana. Hunger's Bridesis a dramatic unveiling of three intimate journeys: a man's forced march to self-knowledge, a great poet's withdrawal from the world, and a profane mystic's pilgrimage into modern Mexico, in which the bones of the past constantly poke through a present built on the ruins of the vanquished. Excerpt fromHunger's Brides "From the moment I was first illuminated by the light of reason, my inclination toward letters has been so vehement that not even the admonitions of others . . . nor my own meditations have been sufficient to cause me to forswear this natural impulse that God placed in me . . . that inclination exploded in me like gunpowder. . . . " --Sor Juana, in a letter of self-defence written to a bishop in 1691, just before she took a vow of silence

Hungry for Home: Leaving the Blaskets: A Journey from the Edge of Ireland

by Cole Moreton

Moreton delivers this beautiful, haunting, previously untold story of a vanished people from the edge of Ireland and the events that led to the abandonment of their way of life. This book is about home and what that means and a gripping account of the quest for a vanished people. [From the back cover:] "On Christmas Eve, 1946, a young man collapsed on a remote island off the coast of Ireland. There was no priest, no doctor, and no policeman on the Great Blasket, and no contact with the outside world. Helpless, his family watched him die. Cole Moreton's Hungry for Home tells the story of an Irish island, whose inhabitants lived a medieval way of life and spoke a pure form of Irish, until the dramatic events that led to its being abandoned. Searching for the islanders who had left half a century earlier, Moreton seeks out the dead man's brothers and finds them in America. This is a book about home and what that means, but most of all it is a story of a family and their breathtaking journey from one way of life to another." The author tells the story he learned from articles and books, but most importantly from the last islanders themselves. Cole Moreton spent years exploring the remains of the village on the Blasket Island, making land and sea journeys as it's people did, tracing their path to reside on Mainland Ireland and across the Atlantic to the United States. As he visits former islanders, whose children have become quite Americanized, he discovers that the Blasket community reassembled itself in Connecticut in an area they named Hungry Hill. Excerpts of books written by islanders, and accounts of their work, stories, loves and losses are revealing and moving, and as the author admits, often edited by the tellers to cast their former Blasket home and way of life in the best possible light. Here is the story of the crumbling of a centuries old culture. A list of family names, list of illustrations, and a useful bibliography are included.
