Brooklyn poet publishes Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize volume

Author: Kathryn Pitts

Rhodes

Brooklyn poet Heidi Andrea Restrepo Rhodes has published The Inheritance of Haunting, winner of the Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize. The poems in Rhodes's collection contend with historical memory and its losses and gains carried within the body, wrought through colonization and its generations of violence, war, and survival. The driving forces behind Rhodes’s work include a decolonizing ethos; a queer sensibility that extends beyond sexual and gender identities to include a politics of deviance; errantry; ramshackled bodies; and forms of loving and living that persist in their wild difference.…

This month, the U.S. Catholic Book Club is reading Uncommon Prayer: Prayer in Everyday Experience by Michael Plekon. Emily Sanna, associate editor of U.S. Catholic says, “Prayer is not just formal, private, or corporate conversations with God, professor and Orthodox priest Michael Plekon believes. It is also what happens when we come together with others to eat, to celebrate, to create, and to confront what we fear. It happens not just in churches but in the forest, in kitchens, and on the streets. To make his point, Plekon’s new book, Uncommon Prayer

New book in “Catholic Ideas for a Secular World” series critiques the modern notion of freedom

Author: Kathryn Pitts

Freedom From Reality

It is commonly observed that behind many of the political and cultural issues that we face today lies an impoverished conception of freedom, which, according to D. C. Schindler, associate professor of metaphysics and anthropology at the John Paul II Institute, we have inherited from the classical liberal tradition without a sufficient awareness of its implications. In Freedom from Reality: The Diabolical Character of Modern Liberty

Book by Fred Dallmayr challenges the "desert character" of modern culture

Author: Kathryn Pitts

Spiritual Guides

Fred Dallmayr, the Packey J. Dee Professor Emeritus in philosophy and political science at the University of Notre Dame, has published a new book titled Spiritual Guides: Pathfinders in the Desert. Dallmayr contends that political and economic corruption, incessant warmongering, spoliation of natural resources, and, above all, mindless consumerism and greedy self-satisfaction are all symptoms of an expanding wasteland or desert where everything creative and nourishing decays and withers. Through an alternative interpretation of Nietzsche's saying "the desert grows," this book calls for spiritual renewal, invoking in particular four prominent guides or pathfinders in the desert: Paul Tillich, Raimon Panikkar, Thomas Merton, and Pope Francis. What links all four guides together is the view of spiritual life as an itinerarium, a pathway along difficult and often uncharted roads.

Robert Gibb wins Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry

Author: Kathryn Pitts

Among Ruins

Robert Gibb, author of Among Ruins, is the winner of the 2017 Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry. This book is the final volume of Homestead Works, a collection of four books of poetry that explore the industrial past and legacy of the old steel town of Homestead, Pennsylvania, and, by extension, Pittsburgh. Robert Gibb's haunting historical narratives capture the Steel City, "Where the crucible mills poured fire, / Slag erupted nightly above the other shore." The ruins in this book are various—personal, historical, cultural—and are filtered through a variety of perspectives, including the poet's own as well as those of visual artists (Aaron Harry Gorson and Lewis Hine) who have made Pittsburgh their subject and artists (James Whistler, Eugène Atget, J. M. W. Turner) who have been imagined here.

Richard Sullivan Prize in Short Fiction winner is Kellie Wells

Author: Kathryn Pitts

God The Moon And Other Megafauna

Kellie Wells is a writer of startling imagination whose "phantasmal stories," Booklist says, "shimmer with a dreamlike vibrancy." God, the Moon, and Other Megafauna, Wells's second collection of short stories and winner of the Richard Sullivan Prize in Short Fiction, is populated with the world’s castoffs, cranks, and inveterate oddballs, the deeply aggrieved, the ontologically challenged, the misunderstood mopes that haunt the shadowy wings of the world’s main stage. Here you will find a teacup-sized aerialist who tries to ingest the world’s considerable suffering; a lonely god growing ever lonelier as the Afterlife swells with monkeys and other improbable occupants; a father fluent in the language of the Dead who has difficulty communicating with his living son; and Death himself, a moony adolescent with a tender heart and a lack of ambition. God-haunted and apocalyptic, comic and formally inventive, these stories give lyrical voice to the indomitability of the everyday underdog, and they will continue to resonate long after the last word has been read.…
