One of the most vexing problems to confront American Orthodox Jewry is the case of the agunah--a wife abandoned by a husband who refuses to give her a Jewish divorce. This work seeks to explain the agunah problem in the United States. It argues that the agunah problem in contemporary America is part of a more general dispute in classical Jewish law as to when marriage should end. American no-fault divorce law adds a level of complexity, and is both part of the problem and part of the solution. The author concludes that preemption agreements can successfully address the agunah problem in the United States since they provide a way for couples to create an image of marriage and divorce by which they can agree to live.

Among the strip malls, industrial parks and overpasses of Southwestern Ontario, Tim is a young misfit with an overactive imagination and a heavy-drinking father, surrounded by bullies at school and wondering if he’ll ever be normal. He experiences first love with another high school student, Sherrie, and at the same time he meets his first friend, Russ. In pursuing Sherrie, Tim is drawn into a cult-like religious retreat, and his friendship with Russ takes a strange turn as the three teenagers confront their vanishing childhood. The Abandoned is the dense and dazzling follow up to Harness’s critically acclaimed novel, Wigford Rememberies. Praise for Wigford Rememberies: “Pen in hand, there seems to be nothing Harness cannot do.”—The Globe and Mail “Kyp Harness’ prose has a unique flow: word and action, thought and thing are all contiguous and combined in lovely braided sentences. There’s some Joyce splashed around Wigford Rememberies, a satisfying read. This is a fantastic book. Please just read it.”—Tony Burgess “Told with unshrinking honesty and real compassion ...these characters and their stories will linger with readers.”—Publishers Weekly

Abandoned by her mother and sent to live with relatives in Dakar, the author tells of being educated in the French colonial school system, where she comes gradually to feel alienated from her family and Muslim upbringing, growing enamored with the West. Academic success gives her the opportunity to study in Belgium, which she looks upon as a "promised land." There she is objectified as an exotic creature, however, and she descends into promiscuity, alcohol and drug abuse, and, eventually, prostitution. (It was out of concern on her editor's part about her candor that the author used the pseudonym Ken Bugul, the Wolof phrase for "the person no one wants.") Her return to Senegal, which concludes the book, presents her with a past she cannot reenter, a painful but necessary realization as she begins to create a new life there.
