Remembering Elie Wiesel (1928-2016)

We mourn the passage of a great man, who inspired us by his writing and by his advocacy for all who are oppressed.

“Suffering gives man no privileges; it all depends on what he does with it. If he uses his suffering against man, he betrays it; if he uses it to fight evil and humanize destiny, then he elevates it and elevates himself.”

Bren-Books.com is proud to have a collection of his signed works.

The Awakening and the Legacy of New Orleans: 10 Years After Katrina

As we mark the 10th anniversary since Hurricane Katrina, Bren-Books.com features one of the most pivotal Women’s Novels, a treasure from New Orleans:

The Awakening by Kate Chopin

Publisher: Herbert S. Stone & Co., Chicago and New York, 1899
Used – Very Good Condition. 

Set in New Orleans and on the Louisiana Gulf coast at the end of the 19th century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women’s issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating a mixed reaction from contemporary readers and critics.

The novel’s blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psychological complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernist literature; it prefigures the works of American novelists such as William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway and echoes the works of contemporaries such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. It can also be considered among the first Southern works in a tradition that would culminate with the modern masterpieces of Faulkner, Flannery O’ConnorEudora WeltyKatherine Anne Porter, and Tennessee Williams. (from Wikipedia: http://bit.ly/1NciFBx)

Bren-Books.com offers a gorgeous copy in VERY GOOD+ condition. The boards still have the lovely bright designs with just a bit of darkening along the edges and spine ends. The interior is clean and tight with just a bit of browning to the end pages. there is gilt still bright along the top page ends and the pages themselves are rough cut so the outer and bottom ends are irregular.
