Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Light and darkness shape our perception of the world. This is true in a literal sense, but also metaphorically: in theology, philosophy, literature and the arts the light of day signifies life, safety, knowledge and all that is good, while the darkness of the night suggests death, danger, ignorance and evil. A closer inspection, however, reveals that things are not quite so clear cut and that light and darkness cannot be understood as simple binary opposites. On a biological level, for example, daylight and darkness are inseparable factors in the calibration of our circadian rhythms, and a lack of periodical darkness appears to be as contrary to health as a lack of exposure to sunlight. On a cultural level, too, night and darkness are far from being universally condemnable: in fiction, drama and poetry the darkness of the night allows not only nightmares but also dreams, it allows criminals to ply their trade and allows lovers to meet, it allows the pursuit of pleasure as well as deep thought, it allows metamorphoses, transformations and transgressions unthinkable in the light of day. But night is not merely darkness. The night gains significance as an alternative space, as an ‘other of the day’, only when it is at least partially illuminated. The volume examines the interconnection of night, darkness and nocturnal illumination across a broad range of literary texts. The individual essays examine historically specific light conditions in literature, tracing the symbolic and metaphoric content of darkness and illumination and the attitudes towards them.

Book excerpt: A story about first love, first fights, and finding yourself in a messed up world, from Stephen Emond, acclaimed author of Happyface. Walter Wilcox has never been in love. That is, until he meets Naomi, and sparks, and clever jokes, fly. But when his cop dad is caught in a racial profiling scandal, Walter, who is white, and Naomi, who is African American, are called out at school, home, and online. Can their bond (and mutual love of the Foo Fighters) keep them together? With black-and-white illustrations throughout and a heartfelt, humorous voice, Stephen Emond's Bright Lights, Dark Nights authentically captures just how tough first love can be...and why it's worth fighting for. “This book is really good, you guys.” —Mariko Tamaki, cocreator of the New York Times–bestselling and Printz and Caldecott Honor Book This One Summer “Bright Lights, Dark Nights is a poignant story of real life crashing into true love. Emond uses his trademark mix of illustration and storytelling in a tale about a young couple trying to cope with racial inequality, police corruption, and America’s continued struggle to see the person beneath their color.” —Michael Buckley, author of the New York Times–bestselling series NERDS and Undertow “Honest, authentic, and kind.” —Faith Erin Hicks, creator of Friends with Boys “Timely and realistic.” —VOYA, starred review “First love, racism, family strife, and the Internet’s culture of anonymous cruelty are some of the many themes explored in this illustrated novel by Happyface author Emond.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Book excerpt: The enduring faith of thirteen Australians. From golfer Aaron Baddeley, news reader Leigh Hatcher, and World Vision CEO Tim Costello (as well as a host of others) come these stories of the faith that binds them together. Full of insight into the spiritual side of life, and candid stories of people for whom their Christian faith is the bedrock of life. Foreword by Mark Scott, CEO of the ABC. Common to them all is a deep conviction of faith as the key to life and the source of hope. This of course places them somewhat out of sync with the dominant secular world, even as they take their place firmly in it. Each case is an example of a true 'journey of faith' enduring at times profound challenges and struggles, and illustrating the difference faith can make in a life.
