From the winner of the Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize, an elegiac and lyrical novel about a young couple whose love--and everything they know to be true--is threatened by the arrival of an unwelcome stranger in their collapsing eastern Colorado townBonnie Nadzam--author of the critically acclaimed, award-winning debut Lamb--returns with this scorching, haunting portrait of a rural community in a "living ghost town" on the brink of collapse, and the individuals who are confronted with either chasing their dreams or--against all reason--staying where they are.Lions is set on the high plains of Colorado, a nearly deserted place, steeped in local legends and sparse in population. Built to be a glorious western "city upon a hill," it was never fit for farming, mining, trading, or any of the illusory sources of wealth its pioneers imagined. The Walkers have been settled on its barren terrain for generations--a simple family in a town otherwise still taken in by stories of bigger, better, brighter.When a traveling stranger appears one day, his unsettling presence sets off a chain reaction that will change the fates of everyone he encounters. It begins with the patriarch John Walker as he succumbs to a heart attack. His devastated son Gordon is forced to choose between leaving for college with his girlfriend, Leigh, and staying with his family to look after their floundering welding shop and, it is believed, to continue carrying out a mysterious task bequeathed to all Walker men. While Leigh is desperate to make a better life in the world beyond the desolation of Lions, Gordon is strangely hesitant to leave it behind. As more families abandon the town, he is faced with what seems to be a reasonable choice and the burden of betraying his own heart.A story of awakening, Lions is an exquisite novel that explores ambition and an American obsession with self-improvement, the responsibilities we have to ourselves and each other, and the everyday illusions that pass for a life worth living

Uncertain fictions: fictional forms addressing philosophical uncertainty in the enlightenment; Lamb by Bonnie Nadzam( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the Eighteenth Century, as English men and women disputed the longstanding authority of the monarchy and the church, reorienting themselves spiritually and politically in the century following The Great Revolution, Enlightenment thinking also manifested more broadly in philosophical questions: What is the world as it is versus the world as it seems? Is the sensible world and its phenomena independent of the human mind? What is a person? How is one person not another person? How do I know what I know? To what extent do I create the very phenomena I sense? Is a person in the mind or in the body? In the memory? Where does a person go when asleep? When drunk? Conscious? Unconscious? ❧ All of these are questions that were addressed by eighteenth-century thinkers of natural science, politics, spirituality and—as this project claims and explores—verbal representational works of art; for the poetic and prose forms with which eighteenth-century writers chose to represent the world are inextricably bound up with an author’s postulations about character, narration, mimesis. In particular, this project examines how these aforementioned philosophical questions piqued Enlightenment writers of what is now generally—and anachronistically—called “fiction.” ❧ This project is not concerned so much with these aforementioned questions or with any philosophical approaches to resolving them as it is with the way that the questions themselves manifested—sometimes in particular forms of narration, or in particular presentations of character—in the very forms of early, experimental “fictions.” From the satires of Pope and Swift through the fictional experiments of Laurence Sterne, Henry Fielding, and Jane Austen, the page quickly and indisputably became a place where authors and readers alike might postulate resolutions to some of these philosophical questions. ❧ The extent to which fiction can be a place for political and philosophical argument—at least in terms of the questions raised a
