FROM TRINITY TO TRINITY

Publisher: Barrytown/Station Hill Press, Inc.

FROM TRINITY TO TRINITY recounts the pilgrimage of Japanese atomic-bomb survivor Kyoko Hayashi to the Trinity Site in northern New Mexico, where the world's first atomic bomb test was conducted. Her journey takes her into unfamiliar terrain, both past and present, as she not only confronts American attitudes, disconcertingly detached from the suffering of nuclear destruction, but discovers as well a profound kinship with desert plants and animals, the bomb's first victims. Translator Eiko Otake, a renowned artist in dance (Eiko & Koma), offers further insight into Hayashi's life and work, illuminating how her identity as outsider helped shape her vision. Together author and translator present one woman's transformation from victim to witness, a portrait of endurance as a power of being against all odds.

About Eiko Atake

About Kyoko Hayashi

Kyoko Hayashi is a celebrated author born in Nagasaki. Spending most of her childhood in Shanghai, she returned in 1945 to her birth city. Having lived through that city's devastation, she eventually began to chronicle the stories of survivors. Hayashi first gained recognition on winning the prestigious Akutagawa Prize, and in 2005 the eight-volume KYOKO HAYASHI COMPLETE was published.

Uncertainties

Uncertainties

by Kelly, Robert

Call and response. The breathing body of poetry from the beginning. The psalms of David, the wave of them, rise and fall of plainchant, verse and response. The constantly shifting pause between the half-lines of Old English poetry and the poems of the Edda, the half-lines of the Kalevala swayed out four-handed on the saga bench...

Studying Hunger Journals

Studying Hunger Journals

by Mayer, Bernadette

In 1972 Bernadette Mayer began this project as an aid to psychological counseling, writing in parallel journals so that, as she wrote in one (in bed, on subways, at parties, etc.), her psychiatrist read the other. Using colored pens to color-code emotions, she recorded dreams, events, memories, and reflections in a language at once free-ranging and precise-a work that creates its own poetics...

Untam'd Wing

Untam'd Wing

by Robinson, Jeffrey C.

The jazz term riff is short for riffle-make rough. In Untam'd Wing: Riffs on Romantic Poetry, scholar/poet Jeffrey Robinson sets out much like a jazz musician to renew a great body of work (say, Miles Davis on George Gershwin)-to recast, as he says in the Prefatory Note, what have become monuments, with all the inertness of passive appreciation that monumentality encourages, into living forms...

This is a gripping account of an almost incredible journey Keeney, a prolific author, professor, and psychotherapist, took into shamanism as practiced in remote areas of several continents.

Malcolm

Malcolm

by Perry, Bruce

This fascinating psychological portrait, strikingly different from the one given in the Autobiography, is of a man who was abused by both his parents, who never shook off the conflicts of his troubled youth, and whose internalized messages of racial ambivalence continued to plague him throughout his brilliant career...
