A collection of 198 Literary Objects. Autobiography, fiction, literary experiments, spanning over twenty years of writing. The first three entries: One Saturday morning amidst cartoons and commercials I stuck my tongue out far as I could, closed my eyes, touched the tip to the screen scooted back licking everywhere inside my mouth. Then got on my knees shuffled up and pressed the top of my tongue flat on the screen for half-a-minute. That night I had nightmares::::the screen cracking and me dissolving. The next morning I named the flavor 'Silver.' In the evenings Mom would say 'Looks like you kids've been fingerpainting the tv again.' She'd go grab the Windex and the towel from the refrigerator handle. I smell glasses when I take them from the cupboard. They contain an odor of mustiness and usage::::such contradictions are always sweet. I rinse them under tap water I mistook a stain on my sheet for a potato chip.

"Hank Smith saved my life, carrying me through a blizzard to his mountain cabin. He doesn't like strangers, and he doesn't like leaving his sanctuary. Now I'm trapped here with him until the snow melts. I see him looking at me. He tries to hide behind a gruff exterior, but I see the longing and the heat burning in his eyes. I know he wants me, and I can't resist him. I want to feel those big, rough hands all over my body. But once he's unleashed his raw, barely tried desire on me, will I be able to leave my mountain man behind, or will he make me his?"--Back cover.

First published in 1999, Worlds Apart examined the nature of poverty through the stories of real people in three remote rural areas of the United States: New England, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta. In this new edition, Duncan returns to her original research, interviewing some of the same people as well as some new key informants. Duncan provides powerful new insights into the dynamics of poverty, politics, and community change. "Duncan, through in-depth investigation and interviews, concludes that only a strong civic culture, a sense among citizens of community and the need to serve that community, can truly address poverty. . . . Moving and troubling. Duncan has created a remarkable study of the persistent patterns of poverty and power."—Kirkus Reviews "The descriptions of rural poverty in Worlds Apart are interesting and read almost like a novel."—Choice

It has been approximately nine years since Rob Nixon coined the term ‘slow violence’ to express the slow but deadly changes in the environment which cause the suffering of the poor. These environmental catastrophes take place so gradually and out of sight that they are often ignored. While Nixon dealt with the issues of slow violence in the Global South, this book argues that slow violence is not limited to this region, showing that poorer parts of America suffer from slow violence. Concentrating on Illinois and the Appalachian region, it reveals how slow violence occurs in these places and discusses the reflections of slow violence in various novels set in these locations.

Sam learns about courage, danger, and independence during his year in the wilderness, a year that changes his life forever. “An extraordinary book . . . It will be read year after year.” —The Horn Book
