By Eugene X. Perticone
When Matthew is almost twelve years old, his grandfather, Sam, decides it’s time for him to get to know the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson, a sage the boy has never heard of. During their frequent meetings, Sam introduces Matthew to Emerson’s sophisticated notions and wisdoms. Emerson’s words, delivered in the essay Self-Reliance and in other writings, teach Matthew practical concepts that give greater meaning to life and help him successfully overcome difficulties for himself and his family. At the same time, Sam and Matthew develop a very special and loving relationship. In Waldo Emerson, My Grandfather, and Me, author Eugene X. Perticone shows that although circumstances and the problems of life may seem different and more complex in our time, the best solutions haven’t changed much. The wisdom of Ralph Waldo Emerson as it pertains to both worldly and spiritual matters is shown to be as relevant today as in the time it was written, and a grandfather’s approach to teaching this to his grandson results in happiness for both of them as well as many others in the boy’s life.

“You ruined my life,” the departing husband tells his wife in the opening story. Like Circe, she wonders how she came to have such terrible powers--and whether she really has them. In other stories, a young boy tries to understand why he has lost the affection of a much-loved uncle, an elderly couple battle like siblings, and a middle-aged woman is forced to confront the fact that her mother loved a close friend more than she loved her daughter. Love misunderstood, often doubted, often disappointing--the characters in these twenty stories struggle to make sense of it. To varying degrees they succeed, but all find it a difficult and dangerous enterprise. And some wonder whether love is even necessary.

In 1983, Ace’s small, five-year-old world consisted mostly of Michael Jackson songs coming in full of static on a small kitchen radio as his mother cooked. He assumed that the frequent beatings meted out to him and his mother by his father—a man who was all vodka and venom—were all part of a normal, picture-perfect family. Labeled a sissy by his father, Ace was a prime target for the frequent tirades.

Trapped: A Child with a Broken Heart shares gut-wrenching stories of Ace’s family, which included his domineering and drunk father; his mother, who was too afraid to leave; and a little sister who somehow escaped the torment. Left to do battle with real-life monsters, Ace made his way through school stumbling two steps behind as he navigated a never-ending barrage of bullies, questions, and sexual uncertainty. Still, he dreamed about getting ahead. Far from a traditional hero, he attempted to save himself.

In this personal narrative, one man recalls his powerful journey from boy to not-quite man. It is a story about hope and about how the choices one makes can help make life better.

After the great destruction which obliterated the palace cultures of Minos, Ugarit, and many cities along the Mediterranean coast, the trade routes that connected the late Bronze age cities were disrupted. Part 3 continues the stories of the descendents of Thutmose, the founding Egyptian artist. Little Petros grows into a man who loves adventures and the life of traveling. He comes upon the nomadic Bedouin and their cherished war-mares and loses his heart to them. He cannot live with them for he owes duty to his kin. He and his brothers are sent to Egypt to purchase gems, gold and linen and discover if the old trade routes remain. They come upon an Arabian war-mare, and her companions; a girl disguised as a boy and a man who might be her father who are also on their way to Egypt. Nothing is as it appears, and surrounded by old animosities, old grudges, and old feuds, the three brothers barely escape Egypt with their lives. They are pursued to their new home by distant kin and old grudges. Petros grows into his manhood, discovers in himself the ability to innovate in an uncertain and changing world, forges new friendships and embarks on a tender love story.

FICTION / LITERARY

The Soul of the City is a tale of two cities, Belfast and London, in the heady, liberating days of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Young Jim Mitchell moves through a succession of jobs, girlfriends and apartments in the quest for personal fulfillment and his dream of becoming a writer in the face of often dispiriting circumstances. There is the trauma of his affair with Maureen, an older, married woman, and the trap of his career on the unrelenting white-collar production line of the “Ministry of Truth”, against the background of civil rights protest and the onset of the troubles in Belfast.

Escaping to the space and freedom of London, Jim tries to live the dream of the bohemian writer but all too soon there is the pressing need to earn a living in the more mundane occupations on offer in the metropolis. Just when all seems lost, Jim meets and falls in love with the beautiful Anglo- Irish student Bridget and is drawn into an exciting student-hippy milieu of experimentation, idealism and fun.

However, such pleasures are by definition transient and the young couple, Jim and Bridget, must strike out on their own, exploring love, intimacy and enlightenment together in their ongoing search for the soul of the city.
