On Coming Home

Am I still a New Zealander? Award-winning writer Paula Morris confronts long-standing fears of what it means to return home. Is ambition and adventure being traded for a ‘forever home’ of commitments and compromises?

The declamatory return; a homeland as a ‘wearying enigma’. This all makes sense to me. The New Zealand that’s home to me may be a place of sheep and rugby and number-eight wire, whatever that is, but it’s also none of those things. Am I still a New Zealander? Award-winning writer Paula Morris confronts long-standing fears of what it means to return home. Is ambition and adventure being traded for a ‘forever home’ of commitments and compromises? Will she still belong? And will the belonging impose its own restrictions? Seeking answers in the words of writer exiles, Morris’s returning takes us back to her childhood streets and ancestral voyages and on, beyond, to the lost New Zealand worlds of her writing.

Lord I'm Coming Home focuses on a small, white, rural fishing community on the southern reaches of the Great Dismal Swamp in North Carolina. By means of a new kind of anthropological fieldwork, John Forrest seeks to document the entire aesthetic experience of a group of people, showing the aesthetic to be an "everyday experience and not some rarefied and pure behavior reserved for an artistic elite." The opening chapter of the book is a vivid fictional narrative of a typical day in "Tidewater," presented from the perspective of one fisherman. In the following two chapters the author sets forth the philosophical and anthropological foundations of his book, paying particular attention to problems of defining "aesthetic," to methodological concerns, and to the natural landscape of his field site. Reviewing his own experience as both participant and observer, he then describes in scrupulous detail the aesthetic forms in four areas of Tidewater life: home, work, church, and leisure. People use these forms, Forrest shows, to establish personal and group identities, facilitate certain kinds of interactions while inhibiting others, and cue appropriate behavior. His concluding chapter deals with the different life cycles of men and women, insider-outsider relations, secular and sacred domains, the image and metaphor of "home," and the essential role that aesthetics plays in these spheres. The first ethnography to evoke the full aesthetic life of a community, Lord I'm Coming Home will be important reading not only for anthropologists but also for scholars and students in the fields of American studies, art, folklore, and sociology.

When we hear a favorite song, the memories unfold; who we knew, where we were, our age, best friends, lovers, good memories and bad. Even if the memories pour sadness into our hearts, still we listen, remember and slot the events from the past into a song. Alto Reed plays the first soulful notes on “Turn the Page” and Seger grips our hearts with his rich voice. 13 songs written by Seger are in short story form. Each story starts with a problem for at least one character and the song is woven into the story. Enjoy the read!

Short Story Press Presents Back To The Nest by Carolyn O'Hearn Rachel Dale hasn't been home in over six years. Born in a small Midwestern town, Rachel never planned her future too far from Huntsberry or from the friends she had made growing up there. However, after a broken heart and a broken promise, Rachel found herself canceling her original college plans and getting on a plane to Europe. Now a college graduate, Rachel has returned home to find herself a stranger in a familiar land. Her home is the same, the buildings and stores are unchanged, and old friends welcome her back like a prodigal daughter. After a long journey and years of intense study, Rachel is looking forward to resting in her old home and collecting her thoughts. However, soon after arriving in Huntsberry, Rachel has an unexpected encounter with James, her childhood love and her original reason for leaving in the first place. In spite of the smile she wears, Rachel remembers her broken heart all too well. The old wounds are deep between them, but the two soon find that their old love might still run deeper. Newly adults and filled with uncertainty about where the future will take them, the two must finally work out what they mean to each other.

The end of World War II led to one of the most significant forced population transfers in history: the expulsion of over 12 million ethnic Germans from Central and Eastern Europe between 1945 and 1950 and the subsequent emigration of another four million in the second half of the twentieth century. Although unprecedented in its magnitude, conventional wisdom has it that the integration of refugees, expellees, and Aussiedler was a largely successful process in postwar Germany. While the achievements of the integration process are acknowledged, the volume also examines the difficulties encountered by ethnic Germans in the Federal Republic and analyses the shortcomings of dealing with this particular phenomenon of mass migration and its consequences.
