The second novel by Robert Penn Warren, author of the Pulizter-Prize-winning All The King's Men, is a tour de force and a neglected classic. At Heaven’s Gate, Robert Penn Warren’s second novel, is a neglected classic of twentieth-century fiction. First published in 1943, it grew out of the author’s years in Nashville during a period of political and financial scandals much like those later so memorably portrayed his Pulitzer-Prize-winning All The King’s Men. Other formative elements, as he has said, "came originally out of Dante by a winding path." During the winter of 1939-40 in Rome, where the first half of the book was written, one of the most touching characters, a "Christ-bit mountaineer," and his part of the story literally came full-blown to the author in a typhus-induced delirium. At Heaven’s Gate is a novel of violence, of human beings struggling against a fate beyond their power to alter, of corruption, and of honor. It is the story of Sue Murdock, the daughter of an unscrupulous speculator who has created a financial empire in the South, and the three men with whom she tries to escape the dominance of her father and her father’s world. The background is the capital of a Southern state in the late twenties and the promoters and politicians, the aristocrats and poor whites, the labor organizers and the dispossessed farmers, the backwoods prophets and university intellectuals who are drawn into its orbit. Warren’s picture of the South is as fresh, dramatic, and powerful today as it was when the book was first published. Its plot structure is a tour de force.

In the 1930s, when Cole Worthington returned to his Boggy Depot farm in the flatlands of Oklahoma, he hoped his family would welcome him back. But after he had run away, his son, JT, had taken over to help his Christian mother bring the place to profit. JT had no desire to relinquish the authority he had earned. The son's life was ruled by religion, just as his mother's was, but of another kind: he was in constant battle with a malicious Old Testament God, as well as any human who might dare to challenge him physically. Boggy Depot was a white man's town with blacks at risk if they stayed after dark, but JT was of a mind to change that. Good friends with the family's hired black, he secretly cut down the warning sign and carried it away. .Marrying the banker's lovely daughter was part of his life plan, but that is derailed when, like his father's assumption of authority, the local beauty finds sexual distraction in a visiting evangelist whom she believes she loves. Like Cole, JT runs away, leaving his parents, his sister Susie, and baby brother Bug to cope with a series of natural catastrophes: drought, tornadoes, and finally, rains and flooding. The story has other actors: Dry with his insatiable thirst; the independent old quilter who lives in a pig shed; and the bank teller Gay, with his unfortunate ambition to please Bertie, his spoiled wife, who is also Sary's sister. Bertie has an insatiable desire for a star ruby ring whose disappearance adds to the disaster of its cost. In the end, as the drama unfolds, Bertie gets her comeuppance and Sary and JT their rewards for being steadfastly what they are--Sary, the Handmaiden of the Lord, and JT, the willing battler returned to the fray. A Critic's Review Stranger From Home is a beautifully written novel, and proves conclusively that an epic can be written in fewer than 200 pages. It is a novel to be savored not just for its characters who emerge in the tale as if from the very soil but also for its substance. The key to life in this story is belief, whether it be in God or fate or love, or anything. Cole fails because he is a true cynic; Sary ultimately succeeds oil is found on Worthington land, land Cole once abandoned because, she says, "I had faith." And JT wins, too, because he believed in battle, the necessity of tension in everyday life. He becomes a man. This novel is likely to remain undiscovered for years, but it should be recognized someday as a near-classic novel of the American spirit. Chris Goodrich in The San Francisco Review of Books

Lose Your Mother

After all, I was a stranger from across the sea. A black face didn't make me kin.
Even when otherwise undetected, I was betrayed when I opened my mouth and
heard my father's Brooklyn brogue rippling across the surface of my studied

In Lose Your Mother, Saidiya Hartman journeys along a slave route in Ghana, following the trail of captives from the hinterland to the Atlantic coast. She retraces the history of the Atlantic slave trade from the fifteenth to the twentieth century and reckons with the blank slate of her own genealogy. There were no survivors of Hartman's lineage, nor far-flung relatives in Ghana of whom she had come in search. She traveled to Ghana in search of strangers. The most universal definition of the slave is a stranger—torn from kin and country. To lose your mother is to suffer the loss of kin, to forget your past, and to inhabit the world as a stranger. As both the offspring of slaves and an American in Africa, Hartman, too, was a stranger. Her reflections on history and memory unfold as an intimate encounter with places—a holding cell, a slave market, a walled town built to repel slave raiders—and with people: an Akan prince who granted the Portuguese permission to build the first permanent trading fort in West Africa; an adolescent boy who was kidnapped while playing; a fourteen-year-old girl who was murdered aboard a slave ship. Eloquent, thoughtful, and deeply affecting, Lose Your Mother is a powerful meditation on history, memory, and the Atlantic slave trade.
