DESCRIPTION:

This deeply moving story emerges from the terrifying silence of loss. A riveting memoir about a son’s suicide and his hard-fought struggle to beat the odds, here, also, is a timeless story of spiritual courage. Finding an illuminating thread when “grief is at the wheel” is a rocky path fraught with innumerable setbacks, yet, the author persists. “The deeper life story is personal, yet, universal. Seek it diligently,” Hickman advises.

Sensing her son’s suicide at 27 is actually pointing to the intense challenges of the human condition, the author considers her son’s struggle to find meaning and purpose in a chaotic world that serves up escape, excitement, and excess as “solutions.” Do we understand the profound role of addiction in society, or why this age-old problem assumes an endless variety of destructive, life-threatening forms?

Since her son’s death is a mystifying, but forceful, catalyst, the author finds a way to unearth the deeper story of loss via the greatest life mysteries, and she is persistent despite a world that says “there is no time.” By staying true to the experience, the author commits to the “long view” instead of succumbing to generic cultural standards. The unknown, Hickman notes, becomes intensely personal and urgent with staggering change. “We all need,” she adds, “courage and passion to explore painful realities.”

Each life is a reflection of the many mysteries we are born into. Mysteries lodged in silence. And ambiguity. Yet this story penetrates that silence, as the author initially survives its fierce echo after her son’s sudden death, and then realizes she must, one day, embrace it. Hickman readily admits, however, that she wasn’t remotely prepared for the curious demands of loss. But then, who is, she wonders. “Like a prairie windmill silenced by time, life felt heavy and still.”

Stepping beyond the personal dimension, Hickman considers the complexities of the human experience, the ways in which we struggle to understand something of our lives. Articulating challenges faced at some point by every family, every individual, the author shines a bright and compassionate light on the complex problems and opportunities of contemporary existence.

“As a mother who lost a young daughter, I understand the “silence of morning”―a gutting reminder with nowhere to hide, but also a space to keep sacred and process. Though time has elapsed since Charlotte’s loss, her memory―her essence―still comes to me through these mysterious layers of silence.”
―Sukey Forbes, The Angel in My Pocket

“Despite a crushing loss … here we have a warmth of spirit, understanding and compassion in a distancing world.”
―Madeline Sharples, Leaving the Hall Light On

” … the author gives us an insightful and candid memoir after the suicide of her son at 27. ‘Grief was at the wheel’ in this telling, but so are wisdom and discovery. At its center lies heartfelt candor in a lyrical voice in praise of life.”
―Mary L. Tabor, WHO BY FIRE

“… here is much meaning, peace, and – yes – hope.”
―John DeDakis, novelist, editor, and teacher

“… the gift of a spiritual seeker’s brave inquiry.”
―Richard Gilbert, Shepherd: A Memoir

“Examining the world with narrative grace and balance, Hickman’s autho­rial voice communicates the choppy stuff of life with elegance.”
―Jen Knox, After the Gazebo

“… a new path. Holy and beautiful and heartbreaking.”
―Susan Hall Pohlman, Halfway to Each Other

DESCRIPTION:

“Ingenious. Humorous. Wonderful.”–Lee Child

A gripping and timely novel that follows Sigrid–the dry-witted detective from Derek B. Miller’s best-selling debut Norwegian by Night–from Oslo to the United States on a quest to find her missing brother
 She knew it was a weird place. She’d heard the stories, seen the movies, read the books. But now police Chief Inspector Sigrid Ødegård has to leave her native Norway and actually go there; to that land across the Atlantic where her missing brother is implicated in the mysterious death of a prominent African American academic–America.

Sigrid is plunged into a United States where race and identity, politics and promise, reverberate in every aspect of daily life. Working with–or, if necessary, against–the police, she must negotiate the local political minefields and navigate the backwoods of the Adirondacks to uncover the truth before events escalate further.

Refreshingly funny, slyly perceptive, American by Day is “a superb novel on all levels” (Times, UK).
