NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARDS FINALIST • “Part personal quest, part testament, and all thoughtfully, compassionately written.”—The Washington Post “Esther Safran Foer is a force of nature: a leader of the Jewish people, the matriarch of America’s leading literary family, an eloquent defender of the proposition that memory matters. And now, a riveting memoirist.”—Jeffrey Goldberg, editor in chief of The Atlantic NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR Esther Safran Foer grew up in a home where the past was too terrible to speak of. The child of parents who were each the sole survivors of their respective families, for Esther the Holocaust loomed in the backdrop of daily life, felt but never discussed. The result was a childhood marked by painful silences and continued tragedy. Even as she built a successful career, married, and raised three children, Esther always felt herself searching. So when Esther’s mother casually mentions an astonishing revelation—that her father had a previous wife and daughter, both killed in the Holocaust—Esther resolves to find out who they were, and how her father survived. Armed with only a black-and-white photo and a hand-drawn map, she travels to Ukraine, determined to find the shtetl where her father hid during the war. What she finds reshapes her identity and gives her the opportunity to finally mourn. I Want You to Know We’re Still Here is the poignant and deeply moving story not only of Esther’s journey but of four generations living in the shadow of the Holocaust. They are four generations of survivors, storytellers, and memory keepers, determined not just to keep the past alive but to imbue the present with life and more life.

Many people believe in reincarnation but Clayton Farley provides another explanation in his science-fiction/fantasy novel, Cyclers. Farley's first novel presents a new take on many lives. Preparing for a new life has a whole new meaning when you might be able to "take it with you." Travel with Mark and David as they encounter new lives, loves and experiences. Clayton was born in West Virginia and moved with his family several times before leaving home and finding Maine. His background in engineering and law helped him earn a living but had no positive impact on his imagination. He discovered science fiction/fantasy in the 1960s with Asimov's Foundation series and such classics as Animal Farm and 1984.Although he wrote volumes as a lawyer, after retirement, he experimented with letting his imagination expand and found new joy in writing. He shares his Maine home with his wonderful wife, Lou, and an occasional rabbit.
