A LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER, ROBERT ELLSBERG - December 2016
What to say about the conclusion of a divisive election season and the uncertain future that lies ahead? For one thing, events have given some of our titles a new and even eerie meaning and relevance.
For instance, à propos of a plan to build a wall across the Southern border (“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. . . . They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people”): Deirdre Cornell’s Jesus Was a Migrant weaves together biblical reflections on the suffering that accompanies the migrant journey, and shows how this can be a source of blessing for both the travelers and the society that welcomes them.
