♥ Book Title : The Compass
☯ Full Synopsis : "Thirteen-year-old Rudy and his friends routinely ride their bikes through their rundown neighborhood, shouting insults at their neighbor, Jacob, an elderly Jewish man out tending his garden. Then Rudy discovers that his mother has arranged for him to help Jacob tear down his fence that summer. When a sullen Rudy shows up at Jacob’s door, it’s hard to know which of them is most wary of the other. Yet when Rudy sees the beautiful gardens Jacob and his neighbors, Frederick and Yoshito, have created in their backyards, he can’t help but be impressed. During the hot summer days that follow, fatherless Rudy, who wants to “belong to something,” toils in the sun with a shovel and an attitude, reluctant to accept even a glass of Frederick’s iced tea. Gradually he learns that the older men—Jacob, from Germany; Frederick, an African American from the pre–civil rights movement South; and Yoshito, a Japanese American who spent three years in an internment camp during World War II—have become like brothers, bonded through tragedy and the drive to transform barren dirt into something beautiful. Frederick and Yoshito have made peace with their pasts and removed the fence between their yards, but Jacob is still haunted by what happened to his family at Auschwitz, memories retriggered by Rudy and his friends. As they work alongside each other, Jacob and Rudy do more than tear down a fence in this story of healing and hope that changes Rudy’s life in ways he never imagined."Article| Deborah Radwan| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Compass
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Compass is a life transformation novel that will guide you on a journey of self-discovery. At the core of The Compass are specific lessons about belief systems and understanding who you really are in order to live out your destiny. Jonathan, the main character, escapes his suburban life after a tragedy that alters his plans for the future. Paralyzed by grief, he decides to journey across the globe in an effort to realign his inner compass. He sets off with just a backpack, leaving behind his career, friends, family, and home. His travels begin in the dessert of Nevada, continue on to the pristine mountains of the Adirondacks, and then to a medieval village in Romania. At each destination, Jonathan encounters a pivotal person who offers a major life lesson, and he begins to realize that each individual was placed on his path for a reason. The Compass is a metaphor for the journey of our lives. In the tradition of the The Alchemist, The Compass provides readers with specific life lessons about authenticity, self-empowerment, and belief in their dreams. As humans we are all connected—by love, pain, and sometimes even by tragedies or events we cannot control. Each one of us travels a unique path, yet we are linked by experiences and emotions. In this connectedness, there is life."Article| Tammy Kling| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Italo Calvino and the Compass of Literature
☯ Full Synopsis : "Looking at five of Italo Calvino's often neglected early novels: The Young People of Po, The Cloven Viscount, The Baron in the Trees, The Non-Existent Knight, and The Watcher, Eugenio Bolongaro argues that these works, written between 1948 and 1963, contain a sustained meditation on the role of the intellectual and on the irreducible ethical and political dimension of literature. This meditation provides an insight into a crucial moment in Calvino's development as a writer, and allows Bolongaro to lay the groundwork for a more 'political' reading of Calvino's later work. Italo Calvino and the Compass of Literature firmly situates Calvino within his historical context - the cultural revival of post-World War II Italy - by relating these early novels to Calvino's political and critical writings which played an important role in the cultural debates of the time. This approach provides a key to understanding Calvino's work in a new light, ably demonstrating that Calvino's full literary significance cannot be understood in isolation from the politics and cultural movements of the period. One of the few book-length English-language works on Calvino's early writings, Italo Calvino and the Compass of Literatur will prove to be an indispensable tool to Italianists and literary studies scholars."Article| Eugenio Bolongaro| Statement ..."
