Booker Prize-winning author John Berger, one of the most widely admired writers of our time, returns us to the captivating play and narrative allure of his previous novels–G. and Pig Earth among them–with a shimmering fiction drawn from chapters of his own life. One hot afternoon in Lisbon, the narrator finds his long-dead mother seated on a park bench. “The dead don’t stay where they are buried,” she tells him. And so begins a remarkable odyssey, told in simple yet gorgeous prose, that carries us from the London Blitz in 1943, to a Polish market, to a Paleolithic cave, to the Ritz Hotel in Madrid. Here Is Where We Meet is a unique literary journey that moves freely through time and space but never loses its foothold in the sensuous present.
One of the most widely admired writers of our time returns us to the captivating play and narrative allure of his previous novels—G. and To the Wedding among them—with a shimmering fiction drawn from chapters of his own life. One hot afternoon in Lisbon, our narrator, John, finds his mother, who had died fifteen years earlier, seated on a park bench. “The dead don’t stay where they are buried,” she tells him. And so begins a remarkable odyssey, told in simple yet gorgeous prose and with the openness to personal and political currents that has always marked John Berger’s work. Having promised his mother that he will henceforth pay close attention to the dead, John takes us to a woman’s bed during the 1943 bombardment of London, to a Polish market where carrier pigeons are sold, to a Paleolithic cave, to the Ritz Hotel in Madrid. Along the way, we meet an English aristocrat who always drives barefoot, a pedophile schoolmaster, a Spanish sculptor who cheats at poker, and Rosa Luxemburg, among other long-gone presences, and John lets us choose to love each of them as much as he still does. This is a unique literary journey in which a writer’s life and work are inseparable: a fiction but not a conventional novel, a narration in the author’s voice but not a memoir, a portrait that moves freely through time and space but never loses its foothold in the present, a confession that brings with it not regret but a rich deepening of sensual and emotional understanding.
No one appreciates the detail of being alive more than the dead. In Lisbon, a man encounters his mother sitting on a park bench who laughs with the impudence of a schoolgirl. She has been dead for fifteen years. In Krakow market he recognises Ken, his passeur, the most important person in his life between the ages of eleven and seventeen. They last met when Ken was sixty-five - forty years ago. The number of lives that enter any one life is incalculable. In this nomadic and playful book which travels through fictions across Europe, seemingly disparate stories reveal themselves to be linked, mislaid objects find their place and sensual memories penetrate the present.
A book for anyone who wants to look more deeply into the true nature of their dreams. Most of us have had a dream experience that seemed “more real” than an ordinary dream, a dream that felt like it “really happened.” We’ve wondered what made that dream feel so different, so vivid, so meaningful to us. According to author and clairvoyant Laurie Conrad, there are two kinds of dreams. One is psychological, the product of our subconscious mind, with its endless torrent of thoughts and desires. In We Meet in Dreams, the author presents us with the compelling possibility that some of our dreams are actually visits to other realms or to other places on Earth. These dreams suggest that our relationship to time and space may be less fixed than we think. Through exploring and interpreting a wide range of dreams, including flying dreams, shared dreams and nightmares, Laurie Conrad helps us to distinguish the difference between our “ordinary” dreams and “other realm” visits. In the process, many fascinating, unexpected interpretations are offered that defy the ways that dreams have been understood – until now.

Sara ́s strange nightly dreams began right before meeting Mary Jo. They seemed to mirror the uncomfortable situations she faced each day. Her real dreams of becoming a writer were getting lost in the shuffle, as she coped with a murderer following her around town. How would she and Mary Jo solve this when they didn ́t really know who he was and couldn ́t prove he did it? It was unfortunate that he knew they suspected him. This is what they thought was the mystery, until the real mystery unfolded right under their noses. Chapter 1 Late one afternoon, Sara had started to feel tremendous vibrations underneath her feet. Although she realized the implications, she felt a certain calm inside. She went to find Athena. Sara waited outside the room until Athena ́s next patient came out. Then she went inside. "You noticed it too, I guess," sighed Athena. "It would be difficult to ignore the intensity." "Yes, I noticed it," replied Athena with concern. "I wonder how much longer we have left." "Not much longer I imagine," said Sara. "Do you think we...." Just then Lucas rushed in. "You must come to the solarium with me. It is urgent." They quickly followed Lucas. "What ́s going on in the solarium?" asked Athena, as she tried to keep up with him. "There is no time to explain," said Lucas. "You will see for yourself as soon as we get there," he added abruptly as they hurried down the hallway. As soon as they reached the doorway Athena and Sara knew what Lucas meant. The once beautiful sunny sky had changed to a dark and gloomy afternoon. The ocean was enraged. The treacherous waves were crashing against the shore, provoked by the powerful eruptions of the nearby volcano. The three friends knew that the disastrous end to their time on Poseidia had come. Outside they could see people running around in the streets. The water was quickly rising up over the land and everyone was scrambling to reach higher ground. It was everyone for himself, just as it had always been. Lucas, Athena, Sara and their friends sat solemnly by the great window and watched. They had done all that was possible and now had to accept their own limitations. When the island of Poseidia finally went in to the sea, many drowned. Some had fled to other areas, for there were several occurrences of destruction in Poseidia before that final one. When the time came, Athena and Sara and Lucas and the others let their spirits withdraw from their bodies and rose above it all to watch, wishing that more of the others could have joined them. They looked on as the once-beautiful island was completely, and finally, consumed by the immense and powerful ocean. The only evidence that life had ever existed here was the glowing embers of the burnt remnants of the city. This had been their home, and now floated gently upon the surface of the water. "It ́s so sad to see the demise of our own community," said Athena wistfully. "Yes," said Lucas sadly. "But we ́ve known it was coming for a long time. And we ́ll be back." Sara sat straight up in bed, her eyes wide open now. "What was that all about?" she wondered. She looked at the clock. "2 AM," Sara thought to herself. She took a deep breath and lay back down, but did not close her eyes................
"Suddenly, an arm wrapped my shoulder. I was about to jump off the sink giving a long loud shriek, but he held my mouth with his palm. He tucked my hair behind the ears, gently kissed my forehead brushing his soft lips on the drops of water which I’d not dried off. Then kissed me on the cheek again and softly murmured, ‘It’s me. The one you were thinking of…" Nishi’s story begins with a ‘Stolen Kiss’. She’s quiet, doesn’t like to express much. Kunal, the cynic, is also tough minded and an introvert. She has not confessed and doesn’t have regrets. She’d touched and felt him. If love is insanity, well an asylum was the place for her, for she is truly and completely insane for his love. Who says your heart should beat when you fall in love? Come on, get up, go and make promises and fulfill your wildest dreams. Remember, there are a billion out there and one of them is for you. . Run to him, hug and say what your heart feels because life’s too short and there’s so little time to unravel your part of mystery.

Transcultural Cities uses a framework of transcultural placemaking, cross-disciplinary inquiry and transnational focus to examine a collection of case studies around the world, presented by a multidisciplinary group of scholars and activists in architecture, urban planning, urban studies, art, environmental psychology, geography, political science, and social work. The book addresses the intercultural exchanges as well as the cultural trans-formation that takes place in urban spaces. In doing so, it views cultures not in isolation from each other in today’s diverse urban environments, but as mutually influenced, constituted and transformed. In cities and regions around the globe, migrations of people have continued to shape the makeup and making of neighborhoods, districts, and communities. For instance, in North America, new immigrants have revitalized many of the decaying urban landscapes, creating renewed cultural ambiance and economic networks that transcend borders. In Richmond, BC Canada, an Asian night market has become a major cultural event that draws visitors throughout the region and across the US and Canadian border. Across the Pacific, foreign domestic workers in Hong Kong transform the deserted office district in Central on weekends into a carnivalesque site. While contributing to the multicultural vibes in cities, migration and movements have also resulted in tensions, competition, and clashes of cultures between different ethnic communities, old-timers, newcomers, employees and employers, individuals and institutions. In Transcultural Cities Jeffrey Hou and a cross-disciplinary team of authors argue for a more critical and open approach that sees today’s cities, urban places, and placemaking as vehicles for cross-cultural understanding.
