Voted one of the five best poetry collections for 2012 by Publishers Weekly, Animal Eye employs pastoral motifs to engage a discourse on life and love, as Coal Hill Review states "It is as if a scientist is at work in the basement of the museum of natural history, building a diorama of an entire ecosystem via words. She seem snot only interested in using the natural world as a metaphoric lens in her poems but is set on building them item by item into natural worlds themselves."

The sheer diversity of the Asian American populace makes them an ambiguous racial category. Indeed, the 2010 U.S. Census lists twenty-four Asian-ethnic groups, lumping together under one heading people with dramatically different historical backgrounds and cultures. In Racial Ambiguity in Asian American Culture, Jennifer Ann Ho shines a light on the hybrid and indeterminate aspects of race, revealing ambiguity to be paramount to a more nuanced understanding both of race and of what it means to be Asian American. Exploring a variety of subjects and cultural artifacts, Ho reveals how Asian American subjects evince a deep racial ambiguity that unmoors the concept of race from any fixed or finite understanding. For example, the book examines the racial ambiguity of Japanese American nisei Yoshiko Nakamura deLeon, who during World War II underwent an abrupt transition from being an enemy alien to an assimilating American, via the Mixed Marriage Policy of 1942. It looks at the blogs of Korean, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese Americans who were adopted as children by white American families and have conflicted feelings about their “honorary white” status. And it discusses Tiger Woods, the most famous mixed-race Asian American, whose description of himself as “Cablinasian”—reflecting his background as Black, Asian, Caucasian, and Native American—perfectly captures the ambiguity of racial classifications. Race is an abstraction that we treat as concrete, a construct that reflects only our desires, fears, and anxieties. Jennifer Ho demonstrates in Racial Ambiguity in Asian American Culture that seeing race as ambiguous puts us one step closer to a potential antidote to racism.

Ein bewegendes Familienepos und die Geschichte einer großen Liebe Die unsichtbare Brücke erzählt die ergreifende Geschichte der ungarisch-jüdischen Familie Lévi vor dem Hintergrund des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Paris und Budapest sind die Schauplätze dieses mitreißenden, lang erwarteten ersten Romans von Julie Orringer, in dessen Zentrum eine außergewöhnliche, immer wieder gefährdete Liebe steht.Budapest 1937. Voller Hoffnung besteigt der junge Andras Lévi den Zug nach Paris, um dort Architektur zu studieren – und entdeckt eine Stadt der Theater und der Kunst, der Studentenpartys und politischen Revolten. Als er die neun Jahre ältere Claire Morgenstern kennenlernt, beginnt eine leidenschaftliche Amour fou, die überschattet wird von einem dunklen Geheimnis aus der Vergangenheit der Ballettlehrerin. Es ist der Beginn einer großen, immer wieder Prüfungen unterworfenen Liebe. Auch Tibor und Mátyás, Andras’ Brüder, versuchen in dieser bedrohten Zeit ihr Glück zu finden. Als der Krieg die Brüder Lévi in Budapest zusammenführt, ist das keine Heimkehr, sondern der Beginn einer Odyssee mit ungewissem Ende: Ein Kampf ums Überleben beginnt – gegen Hunger, Verfolgung und einen Schatten aus Claires früherem Leben, der trotz aller Bemühungen unüberwindbar zu sein scheint.In großartigen Bildern lässt Julie Orringer eine untergegangene Welt wiederauferstehen, schildert die prächtige Architektur und glanzvolle Bühnenkultur der beiden Metropolen vor Kriegsbeginn und führt uns mitten hinein in den Horror des Zweiten Weltkriegs, der trotz aller Brutalität die Bande zwischen Claire und Andras und seiner Familie nicht zerreißen kann.
