A “mesmerizing, poetic exploration of family, friendship, love and loss” from the acclaimed author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. (New York Times Book Review) Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it’s senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he? This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.

From well-known Brazilian playwright Francisco Azevedo, a heartwarming debut novel about three generations of a family whose kitchen contains the secret ingredient for happiness—sure to appeal to fans of Like Water for Chocolate. Once upon a time there was some rice. Rice planted in the earth, fallen from the sky, and gathered up from the stone. Rice that doesn’t spoil, it came from far away, by ship with three exuberant young people filled with dreams… Once Upon a Time in Rio is a spellbinding family saga beginning with José Custódio and Maria Romana and their search for a prosperous future. As newlyweds, José and Maria immigrated to Brazil at the beginning of the twentieth century, accompanied by a special gift. During the dinner preparations to celebrate their centenary wedding anniversary, their eldest son Antonio, already a grandfather, looks back at the lives of his parents, his aunt, his brothers, their children and grandchildren, as well as his own. Antonio knows that family is a difficult dish to get right and that happiness must be cooked up day by day; however, what separates his family from any other is its possession of a secret ingredient for happiness: the sack of magical rice given to his parents on their wedding day. With the help of the rice, whose magic is as old as fire and time, Antonio’s family has been guided through the most trying of life’s tribulations. Lyrically written, Once Upon a Time in Rio bares the fragile yet strong nature of the human spirit and with great insight captures the solace provided by loved ones in times of need. Already an international bestseller, this is a beautifully told tale about the wisdom of past generations and the inextricable ties of family.

Finally! Someone has pulled together modern science with spiritual understanding. The result is a thought-provoking look at traditional Christian and other religious teachings without the mythology and a 2,000-year-old world-view. It challenges the reader to recommit to the values stemming from traditional religious teachings, but with a modern scientific understanding of how the universe came into being and functions. The author was ordained as a minister, but his studies and search for intellectual honesty led him to conclude that the ancient world-view of Biblical and other religions often don’t make any sense. This book offers help to those who likewise are fearless seekers of truth, feel some sort of spiritual connection, but don’t feel totally comfortable with what religious tradition teaches about creation, afterlife, prayer, sin, and miracles. Humorous and challenging stories of the author’s own struggles interweave with modern physics and the psychology of human consciousness to provide a very readable, no-nonsense, down to earth understanding of why people are spiritual. It reaffirms that human beings are a totality of mind, body, and spirit but challenges philosophical and religious teachings to correspond with the current knowledge we have gained in science, medicine, psychology, and every day experience. The book’s central thesis is that human beings through evolution have become the conscious mind of God and now have the responsibility of co-creation on Earth.

Rhythms of life represent the courage to live life fully by striking the right balance between the physical, social, spiritual, material and emotional well-being. The entire universe is built on a delicate balance. Every night is followed by a day, every fall makes way for spring, every life is followed by death and every action has a reaction. There is perfect rhythm everywhere. In an orchestra, when all the instruments are playing in harmony, the sound is pleasing to the ears. However if any instrument is out of tune, the same pleasing symphony can become displeasing. Likewise, if life is in rhythm it is pleasing and fun. However when its balance is affected, the pleasure of living fades into anxiety, stress and negativity. This book will help you to develop self awareness, to understand what gives you happiness, and how best to maintain your rhythms of life. It will help uncover where the everlasting secret of happiness lies-it lies inside each one of us.
