In 1991, when he was 13 years old, Lenny Duncan stepped out of his house in West Philadelphia, walked to the Greyhound station, and bought a ticket--the start of his great American adventure. Today Duncan, who inspired and challenged audiences with his breakout first book, Dear Church, brings us a deeply personal story about growing up Black and queer in the U.S. In his characteristically powerful voice he recounts hitchhiking across the country, spending time in solitary confinement, battling for sobriety, and discovering a deep faith, examining pressing issues like poverty, mass incarceration, white supremacy, and LGBTQ inclusion through an intimate portrayal of his life's struggles and joys. United States of Grace is a love story about America, revealing the joy and resilience of those places in this country many call "the margins" but that Lenny Duncan has called home. This book makes the bold claim that God is present with us in the most difficult of circumstances, bringing life out of death.

Provides in-depth analyses of key moments in Brazilian utopianism, including theological-political, matriarchal, environmental, and work-free utopias. States of Grace offers a novel approach to the study of Brazilian culture through the lens of utopianism. Patrícia I. Vieira explores religious and political writings, journalistic texts, sociological studies, and literary works that portray Brazil as a utopian “land of the future,” where dreams of a coming messianic age and of social and political emancipation would come true. The book discusses crucial utopian moments such as the theological-political utopia proposed by Jesuit Priest Antônio Vieira; matriarchal utopias, like the egalitarian society of the Amazons; work-free utopias that abolished the boundaries separating toil and play; and ecological utopias, where humans and nonhumans coexist harmoniously. The uniqueness of the book’s approach lies in rethinking the link between messianic and utopian texts, as well as the alliances forged between progressive religious, socioeconomic, political, and ecological ideas.

In 1820, the Catholic Diocese of Charleston was established, and Bishop John England arrived from Ireland. His new diocese encompassed North and South Carolina, Georgia and, for a time, Haiti. From 1859 to 1885, when Patrick Lynch and Henry Northrop were bishops of Charleston, the diocese included the Bahama Islands. However, the history of Catholics in the diocese--which now covers all of South Carolina--began much earlier. The arrival of Spanish settlers and missionary priests dated back more than 150 years before there was a diocese on American soil. Sister Pam Smith charts the history of the diocese from the first words of prayer uttered on Santa Elena in the sixteenth century through the interfaith singing of a reformed slaveholder's hymn at a painful funeral in the twenty-first century.

Franzicco Ragoczy di Santo-Germano is a successful merchant in Venice. His lavish lifestyle and rumored cache of magnificent jewels have attracted the wrong sort of attention, and without Santo-Germano's noble—and papal—connections, he might be imprisoned, his property confiscated. Also under surveillance is the vampire's mistress, the lovely and talented musician Pier-Ariana Salier. Elsewhere, Ragoczy's publishing business is being investigated by the Inquisition. Erneste van Amsteljaxter, a writer whose intelligence Ragoczy finds attractive, is tarred with the brush of heresy. Ragoczy is trying to help her, when he learns that Pier-Ariana has disappeared. Back in Venice Santo-Germano finds that his fortune has been embezzled, and that he is accused of kidnapping, and possibly murdering, a young man who had been spying on the vampire and his mistress. Another spy has discovered Santo-Germano's true nature and intends to kill him before he can feast on all of Venice! At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

States of Gracewas first published in 1997. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Leaving their depleted fields for better prospects, Senegalese immigrants have made their way to Italy in significant numbers. What this migration means, in the context of both the migratory traditions and conditions of Africa and the history and future of the European nation-state, is the subject of this timely and ambitious book. Focusing on Turin, the northern Italian point of entry for so many Senegalese, States of Grace chronicles the arrival and formation of a transnational African Islamic community in a largely Catholic Western European country, one that did not have immigrant legislation until 1991. With no colonial relation to Italy, the Senegalese represent the vanguard of population movements expanding outside of the arch of former colonial powers. Donald Martin Carter locates the Senegalese migration in the context of past African internal and international migration and of present crises in West African agriculture. He also shows how the Senegalese migration, constituting a "phenomenon" and catalyzing new immigration restrictions among European states, calls into question the European interstate system, the future of the nation-state, and the nature of its relationship with non-European states. Throughout Europe, protectionist immigration policies are often crafted in chauvinist and racist tones in which "migrants" is a euphemism for blacks, Arabs, and Asians. States of Grace uses Senegalese migration to demonstrate that racial conceptions are crucial to understanding the classifications of non-national "outside" and internal "other." The book is a bracing encounter with the ever-increasing cultural and ethnic heterogeneity that is the new and pressing reality of European society. Donald Martin Carter is visiting assistant professor of anthropology at Johns Hopkins University.

Fiction. Native American Studies. Stephen Graham Jones' first collection of flash fiction, STATES OF GRACE, is aptly named: these stories balance drama, play, and puissance, like forty-nine high-wire feats. While some stories arc through the briefest moments and interstices, others seem to examine an entire lifetime in a page. There are alcoholic fathers, definitions of infidelity, conversations in the middle of the ocean, murder, plotting murder, polite murder, shooting fish in a barrel, sons, and daughters. Never predictable, from the real to the surreal; there's no knowing what to expect from an attempt at a state of grace.

After the sudden death of her husband, a woman in midlife sets off in a large motor home with her golden retriever to explore her country and to find her true self and a new life. In 2003, following the accidental death of her husband of thirty-three years, Maureen Hovenkotter was lost and confused. The choices she had made as a younger woman no longer fit, and she could not live an authentic life if she continued to blindly follow those paths. So, in the spring of 2007, she took early retirement, sold her home and nearly all possessions, and set off with her golden retriever Charlie on a year-long coming-of-age journey. It was a pilgrimage to rediscover herself and make sense of her new life, while exploring the country she had served as an aide to a U.S. Senator for ten years. This is the true story of a 25,000-mile journey in a Class A motor home that visited forty-one states and one Canadian Province from north of Seattle to Key West, Florida, from San Diego to Bar Harbor, Maine; the places seen and the new faces who became friends in between. It follows the sometimes-humorous travels and travails of a single woman learning to live the RV lifestyle. More importantly, it chronicles an interior journey-the story of spiritual quest and a path to God. And it follows the sometimes circuitous path taken that helped the author come to terms with major changes in her life and that finally enabled her to feel at home in the skin she now wears.
