#1 New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon returns with the fourteenth novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs. After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself. Then he's given one. As for what it proves, heaven only knows. Millions of Karon fans will be thrilled that it’s life as usual in the wildly popular Mitford series: A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died? And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who’s still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to Muse editor J.C. Hogan’s desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will it be high-def TV or his pork chop marinade? In fiction, as in real life, there are no guarantees. Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice. But there is still a lot to celebrate, as their adopted son, Jack, looks forward to the most important day of his life—with great cooking, country music, and lots of people who love him. Happily, it will also be a day when the terrible wound in Dooley’s biological family begins to heal because of a game—let’s just call it a miracle—that breaks all the rules. In To Be Where You Are, Jan Karon weaves together the richly comic and compelling lives of two Kavanagh families, and a cast of characters that readers around the world now love like kin.

Rudolph McNair is a National Merit Scholar who focused on philosophy and became convinced that a clear understanding of what the concept of “person” and of the “self” is meant to stand for is essential to the settling of many contemporary arguments about notions like social posture, civil and reproductive rights of persons, or political identity. He undertakes this study with a particular attention given to the jazziness of dialogue (as engaged in by about personkinds), and confronts the problem with the supposed “literal” standing of some avowed ideas, depending upon the language group attending to them. He suggests that there are many streams of figurative meaning, with strong currents, into which people engaged in any language group might wade, and he asks whether there can be a solid literal ground upon which any societal “identity” might stand (as might regard expressions like “minority,” “patriot,” “watchman” or “police officer,” and such like). The reader should beware that this is a collection of essays that might present a dangerous course to follow. For instance, McNair insists that an awakened/enlivened personkindness and, necessarily, the process of socioemotional integration essential to it, has substance only at the event horizon surrounding selves (or souls, if you will) where we sort out all aspects of real life-time phenomena—in which case we cannot know when or whether “selves” occur (are born) at all, in the way we track person-being. A concentrated collection of mostly basic annotation and the author hopes, witty explanation, that the reader might find an intriguing train of thought.
