Southernmost Book Review:

“A novel for our time, a courageous and necessary book.” —Jennifer Haigh, author of Heat and Light In this stunning novel about judgment, courage, heartbreak, and change, author Silas House wrestles with the limits of belief and the infinite ways to love. In the aftermath of a flood that washes away much of a small Tennessee town, evangelical preacher Asher Sharp offers shelter to two gay men. In doing so, he starts to see his life anew—and risks losing everything: his wife, locked into her religious prejudices; his congregation, which shuns Asher after he delivers a passionate sermon in defense of tolerance; and his young son, Justin, caught in the middle of what turns into a bitter custody battle. With no way out but ahead, Asher takes Justin and flees to Key West, where he hopes to find his brother, Luke, whom he’d turned against years ago after Luke came out. And it is there, at the southernmost point of the country, that Asher and Justin discover a new way of thinking about the world, and a new way of understanding love. Southernmost is a tender and affecting book, a meditation on love and its consequences.

Southernmost Murder Book Review:

Aubrey Grant lives in the tropical paradise of Old Town, Key West, has a cute cottage, a sweet moped, and a great job managing the historical property of a former sea captain. With his soon-to-be-boyfriend, hotshot FBI agent Jun Tanaka, visiting for a little R&R, not even Aubrey’s narcolepsy can put a damper on their vacation plans. But a skeleton in a closet of the Smith Family Historical Home sure does throw a wrench into the works. Its identity drags Aubrey and Jun into a mystery with origins over a century in the past. They uncover a tale of long-lost treasure, the pirate king it belonged to, and a modern-day murderer who will stop at nothing to find the hidden riches. And if a killer on the loose isn’t enough to keep Aubrey out of the mess, it seems even the restless spirit of Captain Smith is warning him away. The unlikely partnership of a historian and special agent may be exactly what it takes to crack this mystery wide-open and finally put an old Key West tragedy to rest. But while Aubrey tracks down the X that marks the spot, one wrong move could be his last.

The Southernmost Point Book Review:

There is not one person in this world that has not, at one time or another, searched for something that seemed unattainable. It may be something different for each of us, but we all search – for our own ‘prize’ – in our own way. Every human comes to question the direction of his or her life at some point. We either read the map wrong, question the map, or maybe we can’t even fi nd the map at all. Southernmost Point will give you strength and laughter for your journey, regardless of where you are. It is possible to continue even when you feel like you can’t. This humorous and insightful account of one person’s story to perform her own adoption search instills hope, laughter and tears. The journey IS the destination...and it is always worth it.

Geodynamic Evolution of the Southernmost Andes Book Review:

This book focuses on the strong relation between the tectonic evolution of the Southernmost Andes and their closest southern neighbors, the Scotia Sea and Antarctica. Some episodes are related to processes of global significance such as the opening of the Drake Passage, which is somehow linked to Late Cenozoic cooling. Many of the topics covered in the book are subjects of heated debates; as such, not only the latest data and approaches are presented, but different points of view as well. The chapters examine the interrelation between main geodynamic processes and plate tectonics from a multidisciplinary perspective. This Paleozoic-Cenozoic geodynamic evolution of the Southernmost Andes involved interrelated metamorphic, magmatic, sedimentary, and deformational processes directed by plate tectonics. The main topics cover the evolution of the Rocas Verdes basin and the Cordillera Darwin high-grade metamorphic complex, growth of the Patagonian Batholith, development of the Patagonian Orocline, the opening of the Drake Passage during growth of the Scotia Sea, evolution of the Austral-Magallanes foreland basin and its related fold and thrust belt.

The Southernmost End of South America Through Cartography Book Review:

This volume describes the construction of the territorial identity of the southern end of South America and analyzes the cartographic territorialization of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and the “Terra Australis” continent. Different spatial representations and territorial nature coexisted in this process as a result of the spatial interpretation and value modes as well as the projects and strategies of various actors. The book discusses the formal and symbolic incorporation to the Spanish dominion and its inclusion in the imperial design built over a new image of the world. Examining Jesuit cartography it considers both the indigenous territoriality and the dynamics of relations between natural and social components in the continental hinterland. The process of cartographic differentiation for this southern Atlantic region is analyzed in the framework of early Antarctic exploration and competing use of navigation routes and maritime resources. The book emphasizes the role geopolitical and economic interests play in these developments. The formation of territorialities of various origins has particular contents and logic, which are built upon imaginary subordination to political and economic interests. Cartographic language in the 19th century, associated with political and commercial motivations and the (British) imperial ideology, stimulated the territorial expansion. The book argues why in the late 1800's this was an important factor in the integration process of the southern indigenous territories and the national territoriality.

Southernmost and Other Stories Book Review:

Scattered throughout the novella "Southernmost" are allusions to the poets Hart Crane and Wallace Stevens. Here, Brodsky explores the tension between two types of artists, equally tormented. Stevens, an insurance salesman with an unhappy marriage, led an ordered existence and was massively repressed; Crane, a bisexual, lived the life of a raucous, uninhibited bohemian. Brodsky engineers a meeting between the two at Key West; the title applies both to Key West's physical location and to the fantasy of reaching the limit of being. Also in the collection are "The Son, He Must Not Know", an investigation of a father/son relationship brought to a critical point by a toy the father purchases for his child; "Ferry" and "The Assessed", abstract examinations of storytelling; "Bagatelle", "The $50,000 a Year Man", and "Partridges, and Nothing But", which, echoing scenes out of Kafka, together analyze the working life - what it is to have to take orders, to be caught in the absurdities of an organization, the necessity to endure what Beckett called "incandescent grey" in order to survive. Brodsky's work, like that of his literary predecessors - Beckett, Kafka, and Proust - places serious demands on its readers. But just as there is no question Brodsky is not a "light read", there is also no question but that he is developing a body of work that marks him among the most important writers and thinkers of our age.
