From New York Times bestselling author Joyce Maynard, a memoir about discovering strength in the midst of great loss--"heart wrenching, inspiring, full of joy and tears and life." (Anne Lamott) In 2011, when she was in her late fifties, beloved author and journalist Joyce Maynard met the first true partner she had ever known. Jim wore a rakish hat over a good head of hair; he asked real questions and gave real answers; he loved to see Joyce shine, both in and out of the spotlight; and he didn't mind the mess she made in the kitchen. He was not the husband Joyce imagined, but he quickly became the partner she had always dreamed of. Before they met, both had believed they were done with marriage, and even after they married, Joyce resolved that no one could alter her course of determined independence. Then, just after their one-year wedding anniversary, her new husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. During the nineteen months that followed, as they battled his illness together, she discovered for the first time what it really meant to be a couple--to be a true partner and to have one. This is their story. Charting the course through their whirlwind romance, a marriage cut short by tragedy, and Joyce's return to singleness on new terms, The Best of Us is a heart-wrenching, ultimately life-affirming reflection on coming to understand true love through the experience of great loss.

Comprised of ten of the best articles published in Safundi the last two years, this volume brings together comparative U.S. and South African scholarship that is both highly engaging and useful in the classroom. The articles address such topics as the death of Amy Biehl, the politics of African Americans in U.S.-South African diplomacy in the early 1900s, the teaching of South African literature and psychology in the United States, and, in an interview with Noam Chomsky, the "contours of the contemporary world order." Each of the included articles appeared in Safundi: The Journal of South African and American Comparative Studies, an online, peer-reviewed, quarterly academic journal with more than two thousand members worldwide. The name "Safundi" is an invented word created from the following components: "S" represents South Africa, "a" symbolizes America, and "fundi" originates from the Xhosa verb "-funda," or "to learn."

The United States and China: two nations drastically different in demographics, history, political structures, and education systems. Despite these differences, educators in each country have discovered they have much to learn from one another. The United States looks east and is captivated by the high assessment scores that many Chinese students achieve. China looks west and is enamored with how the United States fosters innovation and creativity in students. Teachers are increasingly looking across borders to expand, adapt, and offer their students a more balanced education. West Meets East is based on the fundamental premise that strong teaching is at the heart of educational quality and that we all benefit from understanding the practices and professional thinking of exemplary teachers. With this in mind, Grant and her colleagues set out to discover which beliefs and strategies of effective teachers can cross the cultural divide and help students in each nation make breakthrough advances. As educators, it's important to understand that even though we're setting new goals and improving outcomes, excellence is a moving target. In the globally connected 21st century, educational innovations in one country can reset the bar for students around the world. Only by learning from one another can we be sure all our students remain competitive and successful.

Here are the children of men and angels, and all the ways a world can end; an owl-man in the spring of stupidity and a murderess mourning her victim's death as it never really happened; an outcast who finds her long-sought ideal too perfect, and anorexic ghosts of a man's desire; a dead girl with her disturbing doll, and matters of family tangled up in blue. For twenty years Not One of Us has explored "otherness" from every fictional angle. Collected here are fifteen stories that represent some of the very best fiction published in its pages.

Lead Us Not Into Temptation is a fictional book that looks into the issues of sin, not in the world, but in the church. Candace Gibson wanted a small portion of the so-called good life. She just didn't know what this life consisted of and how to go about getting it. She thought this meant being a part of one of the so-called prestigious committees. She wanted to be invited to the prestigious parties, and most of all, she wanted to have a prestigious friend. In fact, Candace wanted everything she never had. Suddenly, she had a small chance at getting what she thought of as the perfect life, but there was a cost. Did this chance of a lifetime mean that she would give up a lifetime of religious upbringing by her grandmother? Would she make the same mistakes her mother had made, or would she yield not to temptation and at the same time, turn her back on her dreams?
