Spotlight on Alaska Books: The Lion Trees, by Owen Thomas

49 Writers - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 7:00am

It is the nature of a body to succumb to gravity. And so it was with me and my directors. It was a light that they shed, or a vibration that they hummed in their bones without even knowing.
Like so many directors, Blair had a singularity of presence that gleamed and flickered in the dark like a beacon to lost and desperate sailors. Strange that it is the lost and desperate who are most likely to mistake warning for invitation. It is an irony so sick as to make one believe in a psychopathic God. But then, the notion that God has issues in abusing our trust has always been one close to my heart. In the words of Angus Mann, “Trust breeds its own betrayal, even in the heart of God.” (THE LION TREES, Owen Thomas)
What happens when you get the life you aim for and it hurts like hell? The Johns family is unraveling. Hollis, a retired Ohio banker, isolates himself in esoteric hobbies and a dangerous flirtation with a colleague’s daughter. Susan, his wife of forty years, risks everything for a second chance at who she might have become. David, their eldest, thrashes to stay afloat as his teaching career capsizes in a storm of accusations involving a missing student and the legacy of Christopher Columbus. And young Tilly, the black sheep, having traded literary promise for an improbable career as a Hollywood starlet, struggles to define herself amid salacious scandal, the demands of a powerful director, and the judgments of an uncompromising writer.
By turns comical and poignant, the Johns family is tumbling toward the discovery that sometimes you have to let go of your identity to find out who you are.
“[A] cerebral page turner…a powerful and promising debut.” – Kirkus Reviews
“[FOUR STARS] In its structure and nature, [The Lion Trees] reminds me above all of John Updike’s wonderful Harry Rabbit novels and their ability to summarize the essence of change in American society across a decade at a time.” – BookIdeas.com
“[FIVE STARS] This is a powerful, gripping and realistic story. … The Lion Trees does what so very few great novels can: it will take a lot out of you, but leave you with much more than you had when you began.” – Pacific Book Reviews
Owen Thomas, a member of 49 Writers, lives and writes in Anchorage, Alaska. His new novel “The Lion Trees” chronicles the increasingly fractured and chaotic existence of the Johns family, each of its members struggling with fundamental questions of identity. Owen is also the author of a collection of short stories and novellas entitled “Signs of Passing: Letters from Winchester County” winner of the 2014 Pacific Book Awards for short fiction. His story “Everything Stops” is being published in September 2014 by Fiction Attic Press as part of an anthology of short fiction called “Modern Shorts” and is available on Amazon. Owen has come to understand that there is a strange disquiet in referring to oneself in the third person. He is seriously afraid he will not be able to stop. “The Lion Trees,” published by OTF Literary, is available in paper and electrons at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Best Light For Weaving!!!

Clarissa Rizal: Alaska Native Artist Blog - Mon, 10/06/2014 - 11:14am

One of my weaving apprentices recently turned me on to the best lamp for weaving…the V-Light!

I appreciate the fact that the best light in the world for weaving Chilkat and Ravenstail weaving is this lamp:  the V-Light !  I was turned on to this lamp via one of my students this past Summer; holy moly, this light makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD!!!  I purchased this lamp at Office Max.  Every time I go into any store that sells lamps, I am always check to see if they carry this particular brand and model, nothing else comes close!  If there were two or three of these lamps at Office Max, i would have bought all of them!

School District Report on Investigation into Hazing

Juneau School District Announcements - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 4:35pm

The Juneau School District has concluded our investigation into allegations that on or about May 30-31 of this year a group of incoming senior boys hazed/initiated a group of incoming freshmen boys by paddling them multiple times.

These events were first brought to our attention in early June. At that time the district began an initial investigation, which, due to an active police investigation and summer vacation, was put on hold. When we were informed that the police had concluded their investigation we resumed our efforts.
