If three sisters have lived their entire lives isolated, raised to fear men, and suddenly men come to the island where they live, what will happen? If utopia is a good place and it is nowhere, then what is left? In a story simultaneously brutal and soft beyond measure, with lyrical prose making for easy reading, Mackintosh knows all the right places to leave her readers in the dark. The only thing we know for sure by the end is: There are no limitations to love. Not here. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
There are technical translations and there are inspired translations. Carson remains artful in every one she sets her pen to. Her essays and introductions contemplate catharsis, myth, the ancient performance of drama, and the reasons why she herself is fascinated and drawn to Euripides' works. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
Carson's unconventional new translation of Euripides seeks to appeal to the 21st century audience with its succinct lines, trimmed in a way that may leave traditionalists squawking at the liberties Carson has taken. For those familiar with her work as classicist and poet, however, her tendency toward candid and colloquial language is nothing new, and her brief introduction is proof of her utmost respect to the tragedy. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
In 2015 a container ship sank off the coast of the Bahamas in Hurricane Joaquin. 33 souls perished. With modern technology, how could this happen? This is nonfiction at its best, with the ship's last 26 hours of conversation recorded and transcribed in incredible detail, and a great look into the history of the Merchant Marine. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
Weaving statistics with story, these two authors investigate the butterfly effect in one serial rapist case. An insightful look at the way police investigations of rape are often tragically flawed because of erroneous assumptions made by the people who judge and investigate them. This is a true crime story in which the worst offense is the systemic doubt of women. Impressive writing regardless, but especially so on a topic such as this by two men. I read this cover to cover in a day. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost
