📒My Name Is Asher Lev ✍ Chaim Potok
📝My Name Is Asher Lev Book Synopsis : Asher Lev is a Ladover Hasid who keeps kosher, prays three times a day and believes in the Ribbono Shel Olom, the Master of the Universe. Asher Lev is an artist who is compulsively driven to render the world he sees and feels, even when it leads him to blasphemy. In this stirring and often visionary novel, Chaim Potok traces Asher’s passage between these two identities, the one consecrated to God, the other subject only to the imagination. Asher Lev grows up in a cloistered Hasidic community in postwar Brooklyn, a world suffused by ritual and revolving around a charismatic Rebbe. But in time, his gift threatens to estrange him from that world and the parents he adores. As it follows his struggle, My Name Is Asher Lev becomes a luminous portrait of the artist, by turns heartbreaking and exultant, a modern classic.

📒 ✍ Адам Джонсон
📝 Book Synopsis : Северная Корея начала ХХI века. В стране, где правит культ личности Ким Чен Ира, процветают нищета, коррупция и жестокость власти по отношению к собственному народу, лишенному элементарных человеческих прав. Публичные казни, концлагеря и тюремные шахты, рабство, похищения японцев и южнокорейцев, круглосуточная пропаганда и запрет на все иностранное – такова реальность существования людей, которых государственная машина превращает в зомби.Главный герой романа, мальчик из сиротского приюта, в 14 лет становится солдатом, которого учат сражаться в темных туннелях, прорытых в демилитаризованной зоне, а через несколько лет – безжалостным похитителем людей. В награду за «успехи» его отправляют радистом на рыболовное судно, которое в действительности шпионит за иностранными кораблями. Впоследствии, после жестокой «проверки», он попадает в Америку как переводчик дипломатической делегации, где его по воле случая принимают за Министра тюремных шахт.Захватывающая история его невероятных, на грани абсурда, приключений полна трагизма и жертвенной любви, слепого подчинения идеологии Чучхе и чувства долга по отношению к близким. Автор намеренно сгущает краски, что делает этот роман сродни «бомбе, разорвавшейся среди ясного неба» в цивилизованном обществе.Некоторые критики сравнивают роман Джонсона, написанный в популярном жанре магического реализма, с произведениями Джорджа Оруэла, автора всемирно известных сатирических произведений, обличающих тоталитаризм – «1984» и «Скотный двор» и Олдоса Хаксли, автора антиутопического сатирического романа «О дивный новый мир».Роман получил Пулитцеровскую премию, которая считается одной из наиболее престижных наград США в области художественной литературы и журналистики. Он входит в топ-листы таких изданий как Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Financial Times, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, The Plain Dealer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, USA Today, Vogue, Elle, GQ, Time Out, Playboy.

📒Old Men At Midnight ✍ Chaim Potok
📝Old Men at Midnight Book Synopsis : From the celebrated author of The Chosen and My Name Is Asher Lev, a trilogy of related novellas about a woman whose life touches three very different men—stories that encompass some of the profoundest themes of the twentieth century. Ilana Davita Dinn is the listener to whom three men relate their lives. As a young girl, she offers English lessons to a teenage survivor of the camps. In “The Ark Builder,” he shares with her the story of his friendship with a proud old builder of synagogue arks, and what happened when the German army invaded their Polish town. As a graduate student, she finds herself escorting a guest lecturer from the Soviet Union, and in “The War Doctor,” her sympathy moves him to put his painful past to paper recounting his experiences as a Soviet NKVD agent who was saved by an idealistic doctor during the Russian civil war, only to encounter him again during the terrifying period of the Kremlin doctors’ plot. And, finally, we meet her in “The Trope Teacher,” in which a distinguished professor of military history, trying to write his memoirs, is distracted by his wife’s illness and by the arrival next door of a new neighbor, the famous writer I. D. (Ilana Davita) Chandal. Poignant and profound, Chaim Potok’s newest fiction is a major addition to his remarkable—and remarkably loved—body of work. From the Hardcover edition.

📒Religion In America Since 1945 ✍ Patrick Allitt
📝Religion in America Since 1945 Book Synopsis : Moving far beyond the realm of traditional "church history," Patrick Allitt here offers a vigorous and erudite survey of the broad canvas of American religion since World War II. Identifying the major trends and telling moments within major denominations and also in less formal religious movements, he asks how these religious groups have shaped, and been shaped by, some of the most important and divisive issues and events of the last half century: the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War, feminism and the sexual revolution, abortion rights, the antinuclear and environmentalist movements, and many others. Allitt argues that the boundaries between religious and political discourse have become increasingly blurred in the last fifty years. Having been divided along denominational lines in the early postwar period, religious Americans had come by the 1980s to be divided along political lines instead, as they grappled with the challenges of modernity and secularism. Partly because of this politicization, and partly because of the growing influence of Asian, Latino, and other ethnic groups, the United States is anomalous among the Western industrialized nations, as church membership and religious affiliation generally increased during this period. Religion in America Since 1945 is a masterful analysis of this dynamism and diversity and an ideal starting point for any exploration of the contemporary religious scene.
📒Chaim Potok ✍ Daniel Walden
📝Chaim Potok Book Synopsis : Chaim Potok was a world-class writer and scholar, a Conservative Jew who wrote from and about his tradition and the conflicts between observance and acculturation. With a plain, straightforward style, his novels were set against the moral, spiritual, and intellectual currents of the twentieth century. This collection aims to widen the lens through which we read Chaim Potok and to establish him as an authentic American writer who created unforgettable characters forging American identities for themselves while retaining their Jewish nature. The essays illuminate the central struggle in Potok’s novels, which results from a profound desire to reconcile the appeal of modernity with the pull of traditional Judaism. The volume includes a memoir by Adena Potok and ends with Chaim Potok’s “My Life as a Writer,” a speech he gave at Penn State in 1982. Aside from the editor, the contributors are Victoria Aarons, Nathan P. Devir, Jane Eisner, Susanne Klingenstein, S. Lillian Kremer, Jessica Lang, Sanford E. Marovitz, Kathryn McClymond, Hugh Nissenson, Adena Potok, and Jonathan Rosen.
📒Who S Afraid Of Modern Art ✍ Daniel A. Siedell
📝Who s Afraid of Modern Art Book Synopsis : Modern art can be confusing and intimidating--even ugly and blasphemous. And yet curator and art critic Daniel A. Siedell finds something else, something much deeper that resonates with the human experience. With over thirty essays on such diverse artists as Andy Warhol, Thomas Kinkade, Diego Velazquez, Robyn O'Neil, Claudia Alvarez, and Andrei Rublev, Siedell offers a highly personal approach to modern art that is informed by nearly twenty years of experience as a museum curator, art historian, and educator. Siedell combines his experience in the contemporary art world with a theological perspective that serves to deepen the experience of art, allowing the work of art to work as art and not covert philosophy or theology, or visual illustrations of ideas, meanings, and worldviews. Who's Afraid of Modern Art? celebrates the surprising beauty of art that emerges from and embraces pain and suffering, if only we take the time to listen. Indeed, as Siedell reveals, a painting is much more than meets the eye. So, who's afraid of modern art? Siedell's answer might surprise you.
