The Little House is set in the early years of the Showa era (1926-89), when Japan's situation is becoming increasingly tense but has not yet fully immersed in a wartime footing. On the outskirts of Tokyo, near a station on a private train line, stands a modest European style house with a red, triangular shaped roof. There a woman named Taki has worked as a maidservant in the house and lived with its owners, the Hirai family. Now, near the end of her life, Taki is writing down in a notebook her nostalgic memories of the time spent living in the house. Her journal captures the refined middle-class life of the time from her gentle perspective. At the end of the novel, however, a startling final chapter is added. The chapter brings to light, after Taki's death, a fact not described in her notebook. This suddenly transforms the world that had been viewed through the lens of a nostalgic memoir, so that a dramatic, flesh-and-blood story takes shape. Nakajima manages to combine skillful dialogue with a dazzling ending. The result is a polished, masterful work fully deserving of the Naoki Prize.

Joseph and his family feel squashed in their little, little house, with just a yard for the chickens and a small green patch for the goat and cow, so Joseph goes to his Aunty Bella for help. She tells him to bring the chickens into the house. Result? - chaos. But when Joseph goes back to Aunty Bella, she smiles and tells him to bring in the rooster... then the cow... then the goat, until the little, little house is a dirty, smelly barnyard bursting out of its walls! Only when Joseph follows Aunty Bella's final piece of advice does he discover what a clever woman she is, and learns to count his blessings. Jessica Souhami's hilarious retelling of a delightful nursery tale has bright, bold collage illustrations and a fun text, perfect for reading aloud.

Beyond their status as classic children’s stories, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books play a significant role in American culture that most people cannot begin to appreciate. Millions of children have sampled the books in school; played out the roles of Laura and Mary; or visited Wilder homesites with their parents, who may be fans themselves. Yet, as Anita Clair Fellman shows, there is even more to this magical series with its clear emotional appeal: a covert political message that made many readers comfortable with the resurgence of conservatism in the Reagan years and beyond. In Little House, Long Shadow, a leading Wilder scholar offers a fresh interpretation of the Little House books that examines how this beloved body of children’s literature found its way into many facets of our culture and consciousness—even influencing the responsiveness of Americans to particular political views. Because both Wilder and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, opposed the New Deal programs being implemented during the period in which they wrote, their books reflect their use of family history as an argument against the state’s protection of individuals from economic uncertainty. Their writing emphasized the isolation of the Ingalls family and the family’s resilience in the face of crises and consistently equated self-sufficiency with family acceptance, security, and warmth. Fellman argues that the popularity of these books—abetted by Lane’s overtly libertarian views—helped lay the groundwork for a negative response to big government and a positive view of political individualism, contributing to the acceptance of contemporary conservatism while perpetuating a mythic West. Beyond tracing the emergence of this influence in the relationship between Wilder and her daughter, Fellman explores the continuing presence of the books—and their message—in modern cultural institutions from classrooms to tourism, newspaper editorials to Internet message boards. Little House, Long Shadow shows how ostensibly apolitical artifacts of popular culture can help explain shifts in political assumptions. It is a pioneering look at the dissemination of books in our culture that expands the discussion of recent political transformations—and suggests that sources other than political rhetoric have contributed to Americans’ renewed appreciation of individualist ideals.

Exemplary of an 18th-century literary genre that combined fictional narrative with didactic observations on art and architecture, The Little House tells the tale of a seduction in a maison de plaisance outside of Paris. The house itself - its architecture, gardens, artwork, and furnishings - is the central element of a story in which an impressionable woman mistakes good taste for good intentions, with unforseen results. The Little House, long an underground classic among architectural historians and theorists, has never before been published in English. Anthony Vidler's insightful preface and Rodolphe el-Khoury's informative introduction, notes, and careful translation make the novella more accessible to the contemporary reader.

Naomi Ruth Lowinsky's poetry has been widely published. Her fourth poetry collection, The Faust Woman Poems, follows one woman's Faustian adventures during the 1960s and '70s, through Women's Liberation and the return of the Goddess. Her memoir, The Sister from Below: When the Muse Gets Her Way tells stories of her pushy muse. She is the author of The Motherline: Every Woman's Journey to find Her Female Roots. Lowinsky is a Jungian Analyst and member of the San Francisco Jung Institute where she has taught a poetry workshop, Deep River, for many years. She is co-editor, with Patricia Damery, of the essay collection Marked by Fire: Stories of the Jungian Way. She is also Poetry Editor of Psychological Perspectives, a publication of the Los Angeles Jung Institute. She lectures and gives writing workshops in many settings and blogs about poetry and life at sisterfrombelow.com. Recipe for a superb chapbook: Sing a song of home, of the places that have held you. Lament the haunted Shoah-torn dwellings that could not hold, and invoke the poets that gathered the remnants of grief. Create a dirge for the loss of your home where the great power animals and spirits hovered, and give the home a voice to wail your leaving. Celebrate the husband who makes a house a home and lovemaking that brings fire to the everyday. Conjure character and richness out of loss, moving back and forth through time in anguish and joy, as though all times were this one. Descend to the deep where you are swallowed and spat out-whole. Find solace in a new garden amid the unexpected. I heartfully recommend that you join Naomi Lowinsky in this powerful, finely crafted journey, as The Little House on Stilts Remembers.
