The Sign On My Father S House


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Sign on my Father's House is a novel about a young man's rough ride into adulthood. Felix Ryan is on a journey to discover who he is and where he is headed. He moves from rural Newfoundland to the hectic university life of the late 1960s. It is a world of music, girls, and new experiences way beyond his home-life experiences. He falls in love, gets married, breaks a heart, and gets his own heart broken. A key relationship in the book is the one between Felix and his father. Walter Ryan is a stubborn man who tends to alienate the people around him. He came to Newfoundland from Alberta, but he never quite fit into life in an outport. Felix's world is changing as the Joey Smallwood era comes to an end. Plans to continue his education on the mainland of Canada offer him new opportunities for growth and success. But they also mean an end to familiar ways and familiar people. He drives across the island on Joey's Trans-Canada Highway through Clarenville, Gander, Grand Falls, Corner Brook and Port Aux Basques, where the boat to his future waits. His decision to stay or go depends on one last french fry on his plate and an angel who comes to guide him. This is a novel about finding your own voice and putting up your own sign about who you are and what you believe. Not so much for the outside would, but for yourself.

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist: a pathbreaking examination of our huge crime and incarceration problem that looks at the influence of the family--specifically one Oregon family with a generations-long legacy of lawlessness. The United States currently holds the distinction of housing nearly one-quarter of the world's prison population. But our reliance on mass incarceration, Fox Butterfield argues, misses the intractable reality: As few as 5 percent of families account for half of all crime, and only 10 percent account for two-thirds. In introducing us to the Bogle family, the author invites us to understand crime in this eye-opening new light. He chronicles the malignant legacy of criminality passed from parents to children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren. Examining the long history of the Bogles, a white family, Butterfield offers a revelatory look at criminality that forces us to disentangle race from our ideas about crime and, in doing so, strikes at the heart of our deepest stereotypes. And he makes clear how these new insights are leading to fundamentally different efforts at reform. With his empathic insight and profound knowledge of criminology, Butterfield offers us both the indelible tale of one family's transgressions and tribulations, and an entirely new way to understand crime in America.

She was a beautiful blond child, a quintessential Canadian teenager: she loved Saturday film matinees, giggled at pyjama parties, ran for student president, led the cheerleading squad, went steady with the right boy and married him, her proud father at her side. But from the age of seven Sylvia Fraser shared her body with a 'twin' who lived a separate life from her. This other self was created to do the things Sylvia was too frightened, too ashamed, too repelled to do - the things her father made her do. As an adult, she had no recollection of a sexual relationship with her father, yet some connection always remained - pain, terror and guilt were never far from the surface. With tremendous power, candour and eloquence, Sylvia Fraser breaks through her amnesia to discover and embrace the self she left behind. MY FATHER'S HOUSE is at once a terrible account of a woman's coming of age and a lyric story of love and forgiveness.
