"This tense wire of a novel thrums with suspense. . . . [this book] just might be the highlight of your summer.”–The New York Times Cheryl Strayed's Wild meets The Revenant in this heart-pounding story of survival and revenge in the unforgiving wilderness. After: Jess is alone. Her cabin has burned to the ground. She knows if she doesn’t act fast, the cold will kill her before she has time to worry about food. But she is still alive—for now. Before: Jess hadn’t seen her survivalist, off-the-grid dad in over a decade. But after a car crash killed her mother and left her injured, she was forced to move to his cabin in the remote Canadian wilderness. Just as Jess was beginning to get to know him, a secret from his past paid them a visit, leaving her father dead and Jess stranded. After: With only her father’s dog for company, Jess must forage and hunt for food, build shelter, and keep herself warm. Some days it feels like the wild is out to destroy her, but she’s stronger than she ever imagined. Jess will survive. She has to. She knows who killed her father…and she wants revenge.

Light bends around the edges of a cloaked elliptical sphere as it glides down and attaches to a freeway overpass. It begins spraying a green mist that wafts down across all lanes of traffic. It’s the evening rush hour in Tokyo and there are millions of cars on the freeways so the green mist goes largely unnoticed. Continuing to lift up and away, the less populated areas can be seen saturating with green as well. Not as quickly as the cities have, but still with amazing efficiency and almost total coverage. Continuing to zoom out, the shape of the East Coast of the United States comes into view as millions of little green dots, beginning in the major cities, spread across the entire Eastern Seaboard… Ceres is a recently unemployed and recently single twenty-something. Already burned out on the pursuits of love and money she decides to move away from the city at just the right time. Burnout, she would learn, is the mother of intuition. STILL ALIVE is a genre-crossing thrill ride which takes the reader from narrowly surviving a zombie outbreak to learning that the plague is just the pre-cursor to something even larger and much more sinister.

In the first English translation of Still Alive, the renowned Polish essayist and theater critic Jan Kott recounts his perilous odyssey through the endless political crises of Eastern Europe in the mid-twentieth-century, illuminating not only the fate of a whole generation of intellectuals, but also his main concern: how to make sense of one's own existence As a portrayal of turbulent times, the book is priceless, in particular because of its extraordinarily vivid depictions of the atmosphere of everyday life under Communism.-Stanislaw Baranczak, Harvard University An incisive and vivid testimony of a gifted and zestful survival, Still Alive offers a suspenseful story of its author's harrowingly narrow escapes in Nazi-occupied Poland, and an illuminating account of his vicissitudes under the postwar Communist regime. That this widely acclaimed memoir is now available in English is good news indeed.-Victor Erlich, professor emeritus of Russian literature, Yale University Written by a man with literary taste and a sense of the dramatic who knows how to tell a story without ever losing a sense of humor, taste for life, and a kind of gaiety.-Nicole Zand, Le Monde The entire writing resonates with life and its mysteries, some resolved, some not...The rigors and victories of Kott's life somehow offer sustenance to all who question existence.-Library Journal A splendid evocation by an eminent theater critic and philosopher of what it meant to be alive-sometimes barely-during the tremendous upheavals in Europe caused by the Second World War and the installation of the Communist regime in Poland...Kott shows an unerring sense of the telling detail that imprints a scene in the memory. A riveting book.-Kirkus Reviews

From the seemingly routine and mundane to the esoteric we accompany William Moore on his daily routines of a modern autopsy service where those who die are examined to protect the living. From the all too common cardiovascular death to the accidental fatal injuries and of course the tragic homicides this narrative takes the reader behind the scenes to examination of the dead and presentation of evidence to convict the guilty. “Pull up a chair and let’s get started then. You are here to discuss the motor vehicle – pedestrian hit-and-run that occurred on the Interstate up by the canal. This is the case where the fleeing motorist was pursued by witnesses who forced him to stop after he pulled onto the access road. Is that right?” “Doc, how do you remember all these cases?” asked the attorney. “Each death is unique and if I pay sufficient attention to the unique qualities I can generally recall them at least to some detail. Did you bring your tape recorders? Are we ready to get started?”

To cut dead means to refuse to acknowledge another with the intent to punish. Gregory Ellison says that this is the plight of African American young men. They are stigmatized with limited opportunity for education and disproportionate incarceration. At the same time, they are often resistant to help from social institutions including the church. They are mute and invisible to society but also in their inward being. Their voice and physical selves are not acknowledged, leaving them ripe for hopelessness and volatility. So if the need is so great yet the desire for help wanes, where is the remedy? Healing can begin by reframing the problem. While to cut dead is destructive, it also refers to pruning and repotting a disfigured plant—giving it new possibilities for life. In this provocative book, Ellison shows how caregivers can sow seeds of life, and nurture with guidance, admonition, training, and support in order to help create a community of reliable others, serving as an extended family.
