Only Begotten Daughter

by James Morrow

Winner of the World Fantasy Award: James Morrow imagines the advent of an unconventional savior--a female deity--and chronicles her trials and temptations in a modern world gone madRejoice! A new messiah has come, and her name is Julie. Born to Murray Katz, the solitary (and celibate) keeper of an abandoned lighthouse on the Jersey shore, our protagonist arrives on Earth boasting supernatural abilities evocative of her divine half brother, Jesus. As a child, she revels in her talent for walking on water, resurrecting dead crabs, and treating fireflies as luminous alphabet blocks. But after she reaches adolescence, her life becomes as challenging and ambiguous as any mortal's. Not only is Julie Katz obliged to deal with a silver-tongued devil and self-righteous neo-Christian zealots, she must also figure out what sort of mission her mother--the female Supreme Being--has in mind for her.At once outrageous and affirming, James Morrow's Only Begotten Daughter is a magnificent work of contemporary satire that holds a mirror up to human nature, astutely reflecting our species' failings, foibles, and often misguided affections.

The Only Best Place

by Carolyne Aarsen

Leslie Vandekeere thought her big-city career made her life worthwhile, but a move to small-town Montana shows her how big the world really is. Leslie Vandekeere had a good life: a happy family, a great career (even if it did pull her away from home), and all the energy of urban living. But she finds herself miles away from the city she knows and loves when her husband moves her and the kids back to his boyhood home in Montana to help his mother work the struggling family farm. Being a farmer's wife was definitely not in Leslie's plan, and now she finds herself dealing with dirty cows, giant machinery, eccentric neighbors, and an extended family she doesn't quite fit into. When her husband hints that the move might be permanent, Leslie must decide. Can she really handle this much fresh air?

by Stephen Kuusisto

An Only Child and My Father's Son

by Frank O'Connor

Frank O'Connor's acclaimed autobiography, now in one volumeWhen Frank O'Connor was born, his parents--Minnie O'Connor, a former maid raised in an orphanage, and Michael O'Donovan, a veteran of the Boer War and the drummer in a local brass-and-reed band--lived above a sweet-and-tobacco shop in Cork, Ireland. The young family soon moved, however, to a two-room cottage at the top of Blarney Street, a lane that originates, as O'Connor so vividly describes it, "near the river-bank, in sordidness, and ascends the hill to something like squalor." From this unlikely beginning, a poor boy born Michael Francis Xavier O'Donovan set out on the remarkable journey that transformed him into Frank O'Connor, one of Ireland's greatest writers.An Only Child, the first installment of O'Connor's wonderfully evocative autobiography, captures the joy and pain of his early years: joy in the colorful people and places of Cork and in his devoted relationship with his mother, pain in the family's impoverished situation and in his father's melancholy moods and drunken outbursts. Fifteen years old when he joins the Irish Republican Army in the fight for independence, O'Connor finds himself on the losing side of the ensuing civil war and is imprisoned by the government of the new nation. My Father's Son begins with his release from an internment camp and follows him to Dublin and the world-renowned Abbey Theatre, where he meets W. B. Yeats, J. M. Synge, and other members of the Irish Literary Revival, and takes the first steps toward becoming one of the twentieth century's most beloved authors.As richly detailed and eloquent as the best of his short fiction, Frank O'Connor's autobiography is an entertaining portrait of a fascinating time and place, and the inspiring account of a young artist finding his voice.

Both couples, however, are grappling with the transformations they know parenthood will immediately bring.
