Peterson, Brian
In this extraordinary tribute to the importance of the ordinary places in our lives, fifty-two Minnesotans write about the special, sometimes secret, places that give their lives meaning. For some it is their home or cabin or lake. For others, it's a family farm or neighbourhood park, a backyard garden or north woods trail: all places where we find a personal and spiritual connection to the land. VOICES FOR THE LAND explores this complex relationship by linking these personal essays with striking images captured by award-winning photographer Brian Peterson. This marriage of words, images, and landscape provides a powerful reminder of our deep and abiding connection to the land. The writers share the experience of these favourite places through their senses, from the aching tingle of a cold winter night and the sound of ice 'singing' to the buzz of mosquitoes and the acrid smell of burning peat. The Voices for the Land project, organised by the non-profit group 1000 Friends of Minnesota, encouraged Minnesotans to write about the land they love and to fight for its preservation. The Minneapolis Star Tribune published a selection of these essays, paired with Brian Peterson's photos, in an award-winning series. VOICES FOR THE LAND brings these essays and photos together in book form for the first time. 116pp.

Meaney, Gerardine
Previous owners inscription to ffep."(Un)like Subjects" aims to present a significant new model for the relationship between women and writing; and theory and fiction. Gerardine Meaney addresses the issues of style and female relationships which have preoccupied the three most influential French feminist theorists and three contemporary women novelists. Meaney traces the connections between the theorists, Helene Cixous, Luce Irigaray and Julia Kristeva, and the literary practitioners, Doris Lessing, Muriel Spark and Angela Carter. Her reading of the work of these six women writers traces a new vision of femininity as expressed through literature, and demonstrates how theoretical and literary texts can reflect and illuminate each other. "(Un)like Subjects" is a book designed to provide readers with a new way forward in theorizing femininity. Opening up a relatively unexplored method of argument, it could be central to future discussions on the relationships within and between women's writings.255pp.
