New York, N.Y. Black Cat [a paperback original imprint of Grove/Atlantic, Inc.], 2009. Uncorrected Proof. Trade paperback. , 209,  pages. This is a stirring and lyrical first novel by a young writer of immense talent. Verso states "Not for Resale". Having escaped her overbearing family a continent away, Tatiana settles in Berlin and cultivates solitude while distancing herself from the city's past. Yet the phantoms of Berlin---seeping in through the floorboards of her apartment, lingering in the abandoned subterranea--are more alive to her than any of her neighbors. When she takes a job transcribing notes for the reclusive historian Doktor Weiss, her life in Berlin becomes more complex--and more perilous. Unfolding with the strange, charged logic of of a dream, this book is a profound portrait of a city forever in flux, and of the myths we cling to in order to give shape to our lives. From a crowded U-Bahn where Hitler appears dressed as an old woman, to an underground Gestapo bowling alley whose walls bear score marks of games long settled, Chloe Aridjis guides us through Berlin with wit and compassion, showing why cities, like people, cannot outrun their pasts. Chloe Aridjis is a Mexican- American novelist and writer. Her novel Book of Clouds (2009) was published in eight countries, and won the Prix du Premier Roman Étranger.

Substantial pencil underlining noted. Ink notation inside front cover. The Rev. John C. Bennett was a theologian whose views on religion, politics and social policy influenced American thinking for decades. From 1963 to 1970, he served as the 11th president of Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He also made a lifelong study of Communism and repeatedly warned against turning the cold war into a religious crusade. That was a time in which he was growing increasingly disturbed about American involvement in Southeast Asia, so much so that he and Rabbi Abraham Heschel formed Clergy and Laity Concerned About the Vietnam War. But Mr. Bennett, ordained in the Congregational Church, was never a pacifist-above-all: in 1941, he opposed American isolationism in the face of Nazi conquests and was a co-founder with Reinhold Niebuhr of the magazine Christianity and Crisis. He studied at Williams College and did graduate studies at Oxford University in England and at Union Theological Seminary. He held various religious and teaching posts, joining the faculty of Union Theological Seminary, an interdenominational institution in Morningside Heights, in 1943. He became dean of the faculty in 1955 and was acting president for a brief time before assuming the presidency. In 1970, Mr. Bennett was one of three theologians invited by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to testify on the war in Southeast Asia. In retirement, he continued to write and lecture and to condemn nuclear warfare.
