Water : nine stories by Alyce Miller( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
In this startling new collection by prize-winning author Alyce Miller, changing images of water as a force both destructive and healing are woven throughout. Miller moves masterfully through the psychological currents of her complex characters at their telling moments of chaos and resolution. In "Swimming," Helen swims religiously to cope with her inability to bear a child; in "Hawaii," Tajiri, an eight-year-old boy, takes a violent turn in his need to connect to an absent father. Whether giving voice to the nameless wife from a tale by Chekov or illustrating the fears driving apart black and white communities in small-town Ohio, Miller makes vivid the heart of human interaction. These stories told from different perspectives of age, race, and gender, acknowledge a common rhythm in each of us--unsettled desire
Stopping for green lights by Alyce Miller( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 195 libraries worldwide
Set at a crucial turning point in our racial history, Stopping for Green Lights is a moving exploration of the divisions that separate us. It is the late 1960s, and in the small university town of Brazil, Ohio, a young white girl embarks on a journey of political and sexual awakening the summer after Martin Luther King is assassinated. In the turbulent aftermath of King's murder, the world is a more pessimistic place, and Tish has succumbed to the disillusionment of the times in a way that forces her to question her family, her friends, and in particular, herself. Chafing against her parents and what she perceives as their romanticized white liberal notions of integration, Tish tries to take on the characteristics of her militant black girlfriends. Her desire to be one of them is so strong it's palpable, yet no matter how hard she tries, she encounters a wall. All of Tish's confusion and loneliness seem to disappear when she meets and falls in love with Goody, a black man of nineteen who arouses in Tish a new sense of herself. But it will take a heartbreaking betrayal to help Tish truly make sense of her world, in a way that no one else can do for her
