Download and read online The Day I Died in PDF and EPUB Once, I died. For 12 minutes. So begins the surreal, sometimes ironic, sometimes painful, story of the protagonist. A first-person narrative, a journey back in time to recover those lost 12 minutes. Because time is something precious that belongs to us, and we need to retrieve it. On this voyage, the phobias, compulsions, conscious and unconscious motivations that often drive us to make wrong choices, are revisited. Recovering those 12 minutes is important, as is fixing the past; that abandoned baggage left somewhere that we need in order to move forward with our lives. The star hovers over reality and a dreamlike state among memories, subterfuge, children, cats, guitar players and psychoanalysis, laughter and tears, without respite until reaching her final goal: to discover, under hypnosis, what happened that day when she died for 12 minutes.

Download and read online The Black Hour in PDF and EPUB For Chicago sociology professor Amelia Emmet, violence was a research topic--until a student she'd never met shot her. He also shot himself. Now he's dead and she's back on campus, trying to keep up with her class schedule, a growing problem with painkillers, and a question she can't let go: Why? All she wants is for life to get back to normal, but normal is looking hard to come by. She's thirty-eight and hobbles with a cane. Her first student interaction ends in tears (hers). Her fellow faculty members seem uncomfortable with her, and her ex--whom she may or may not still love--has moved on. Enter Nathaniel Barber, a graduate student obsessed with Chicago's violent history. Nath is a serious scholar, but also a serious mess about his first heartbreak, his mother's death, and his father's disapproval. Assigned as Amelia's teaching assistant, Nath also takes on the investigative legwork that Amelia can't do. And meanwhile, he's hoping she'll approve his dissertation topic, the reason he came to grad school in the first place: the student attack on Amelia Emmet. Together and at cross-purposes, Amelia and Nathaniel stumble toward a truth that will explain the attack and take them both through the darkest hours of their lives. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Download and read online Another Day in the Death of America in PDF and EPUB WINNER OF THE 2017 J. ANTHONY LUKAS PRIZE On an average day in America, seven children and teens will be shot dead. In Another Day in the Death of America, award-winning journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of the lives lost during one such day. It could have been any day, but he chose November 23, 2013. Black, white, and Latino, aged nine to nineteen, they fell at sleepovers, on street corners, in stairwells, and on their own doorsteps. From the rural Midwest to the barrios of Texas, the narrative crisscrosses the country over a period of twenty-four hours to reveal the full human stories behind the gun-violence statistics and the brief mentions in local papers of lives lost. This powerful and moving work puts a human face-a child's face-on the "collateral damage" of gun deaths across the country. This is not a book about gun control, but about what happens in a country where it does not exist. What emerges in these pages is a searing and urgent portrait of youth, family, and firearms in America today.
