When Kathy, a young recovering alcoholic recently separated from her husband, fails to a open a series of tax letters that have been sent to her in error, the State of California seizes the house she and her brother have inherited from her father. The State sells the house at auction to Behrani, a former Iranian Air Force officer. Unable to parley his skills into a job in aerospace in the US, the house represents an entry into real estate and a passport to the future of his family and his own version of the American Dream. For Kathy, its loss is the last of a series of insults life has dealt her. When she becomes involved with a married policeman who takes up her cause, the stage is set for a gut-wrenching tragedy.

This thesis, which utilizes both postcolonial and feminist frameworks, details the value of a widely- popularized text like Andre Dubus III's House of Sand and Fog in academic discourse. Employing mainly the works of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and Chandra Talpade Mohanty, the study explains how Dubus' work exposes issues of internal colonization in America for both immigrants like the Iranian Behrani family in the novel and white, less recently immigrated citizens. In addition, it acknowledges the value of distinguishing between First and Third World feminisms when working with a text like House of Sand and Fog. Through exploring issues of language, identity, class, race, sex, economic opportunity, and physical space, it argues for an opening of Dubus' text that acknowledges the suppression of voice endured - in separate and distinct ways - by both immigrant and female voices in America. Ultimately, this thesis encourages a reconsideration of a somewhat overlooked text, as far as academic discourse is concerned, and a rejuvenation of interest in Dubus' novel.

“So good, so damn compulsively readable, that I can hardly believe it.” —Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly In his stunning follow-up to the #1 best-selling House of Sand and Fog, Andre Dubus draws us into the lives of three deeply flawed, driven people whose paths intersect on a September night in Florida. April, a stripper, has brought her daughter to work at the Puma Club for Men. There she encounters Bassam, a foreign client both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club, and he’s drunk and angry and lonely. From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, and page-turning narrative that seizes the reader by the throat with psychological tension, depth, and realism.

Race and Wealth Disparities is a multidisciplinary reader on the subject of race and wealth primarily, yet not exclusively, within the United States. The authors represent a number of social science and humanities' perspectives from anthropology, economics, education policy, history, literature and law, to management, political science, social psychology and sociology. The authors also represent an attempt to create a dialogue across institutions with four of the authors representing Fisk University, a historically Black University. Because of this unique approach of having authors from ten different disciplines address questions of race and wealth, this study is able to provide substantive information about race and wealth disparities as well as giving the reader a greater and more textured understanding of multidisciplinary work. In this regard, the text models a multidisciplinary conversation in a way that is meant to help others enter into interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work. The essays came out of a series of workshops between professors from fourteen different disciplines and four different universities, therefore, the essays are meant to explain the disciplines these professors represent as well as to convey and analyze the subject at hand.

Is cultural dialogue an abstruse intellectual exercise obsessed with examining the interaction of high and low culture in our communication? Is the way we understand communication underpinned by universals or are these assumptions also culturally specific?

Σε μια μικρή πόλη της δυτικής Νιγηρίας τέσσερα νεαρά αδέλφια –ο μικρότερος είναι εννιά και ο μεγαλύτερος δεκαπέντε– εκμεταλλεύονται την απουσία του πατέρα τους από το σπίτι για να πάνε για ψάρεμα στο απαγορευμένο κοντινό ποτάμι. Εκεί θα συναντήσουν έναν επικίνδυνο τρελό που θα προφητεύσει ότι ο μεγαλύτερος αδελφός θα δολοφονηθεί από ένα από τα αδέλφια του. Αυτή η προφητεία θα σταθεί η αφορμή να διαλυθεί ο ισχυρός δεσμός τους και η αφετηρία μιας αλυσίδας τραγικών γεγονότων σχεδόν μυθικών διαστάσεων. Μια ιστορία αγάπης, μίσους και εκδίκησης που διαδραματίζεται με φόντο τις κοινωνικοπολιτικές εξελίξεις στη Νιγηρία της δεκαετίας του ’90. Μια συγκλονιστική αφήγηση με τη φωνή του μικρότερου αδελφού, του Μπέντζαμιν, και εξαιρετική χρήση της γλώσσας. Αναφορές στην αφρικάνικη φύση, στους μύθους και τις δοξασίες της Νιγηρίας, καταγραφή της καθημερινότητας με κύριο άξονα τη σύγκρουση μεταξύ παραδοσιακού και δυτικού τρόπου ζωής, σε ένα έξοχο πρώτο βιβλίο ενός λογοτέχνη που αξιοποιεί με μοντέρνο τρόπο την αφρικάνικη αφηγηματική παράδοση και φαίνεται να έχει μακρά καριέρα μπροστά του.

It is the summer of 1967 and Leo Suther is about to turn eighteen. This is the summer that everyone has something to teach Leo. His father warns him that "life can turn on a dime." Allie, his girlfriend, wants to teach him about love. Her father, the local communist and civil rights organizer, lectures him on politics and carpentry. And Ryder, a family friend, wants to show Leo the magic of the harmonica--harp of the blues. However, when Leo's life threatens to come unglued, it is his mother's wisdom he turns to. Though she died before Leo was five, her voice lives on in her diaries and poems, testifying to the strength of her love for her husband and son--a love that can still, years later, offer consolation.
