Sandra Hunter & Ruth Thompson - Losing Touch & Woman with Crows


After Indian Independence Arjun brings his family to London, but hopes of a better life rapidly dissipate. His wife Sunila spends all day longing for a nice tea service, his son suddenly hates anything Indian, and his daughter, well, that's a whole other problem. As he struggles to enforce the values he grew up with, his family eagerly embraces the new. But when Arjun's right leg suddenly fails him, his sense of imbalance is more than external. Diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, he is forced to question his youthful impatience and careless cruelty to his family, until he learns, ultimately, to love them despite - or because of - their flaws. In Losing Touch ($15.99), through a series of tender and touching glimpses into the shared life of a married couple, Sandra Hunter creates strikingly sympathetic characters - ones that remind us of our own shortfalls, successes, hypocrisies, and humanity. She is a prolific short-story writer and has won the Arthur Edelstein Prize for Short Fiction and been a finalist for numerous other prizes, including the Pushcart. She lives in Moorpark, CA.
 
Ruth Thompson grew up near Berkeley, California. She received a BA from Stanford and a PhD from Indiana University, and was an English professor, librarian, college dean, and yoga teacher in Los Angeles. She now lives in Hilo, Hawai'i where she teaches yoga, meditation, and writing. Her poems have won the New Millennium Writings Poetry Award and the Harpur Palate Milton Kessler Memorial Prize. Woman with Crows ($15.00) is her second book of poetry.
