Life Lines: A Daily Journey is the very personal pilgrimage- in poetry and prayer- of a year in the life of the author, as she seeks to make sense of the world around her; to look at and celebrate the dailiness of life; and to deal with the pitfalls and challenges of simply being human. Because it touches on all 366 days of the year, this evocative book can also serve as a daily companion for anyone making their own life journey; anyone seeking an open, understanding, sometimes funny, often irreverent, always thoughtful, companion along the way; anyone desiring that companion to deal honestly and with great personal integrity with both the complex and mundane issues of daily life.

This is a book of many stories, several of them themed on the author's experiences in Africa and/or as a private pilot. Most of them are told in free-flowing verse: but they end rather more conventionally in prose with a real-life African flying adventure. Vic's themes are varied, and his narrative poetry is written in a genuinely fresh poetic style, largely uninterrupted by punctuation, relying on almost anarchic line changes and a very unstructured use of rhyme to achieve its rhythms and emotional power.In complete contrast, his final short story surely stands as a vivid cautionary tale for any novice pilot. It gives a fast-moving first-person account of one near-death experience he had over Africa as an inexperienced pilot in the 1970s, when a basic error of judgement - together with a sudden change in the weather - conspired to leave him lost in an electric storm and confronted by the imminent approach of darkness.
From Simon & Schuster, Lines is Joseph Viertel's novel about the Russian Jew following his persecution—and the decisions he's forced to make as a result of it.

Adoptions that cross the lines of culture, race and nation are a major consequence of conflicts around the globe, yet their histories and representations have rarely been considered. Life Lines: Writing Transcultural Adoption is the first critical study to explore narratives of transcultural adoption from contemporary Britain, Ireland and America: fictions, films and memoirs made by those within the adoption 'triad' or those concerned with the pain and possibilities of transcultural adoption. While acknowledging the sobering inequalities which engender transcultural adoptions and the lasting upset of sundered relations, at the same time John McLeod considers the transfigurative and creative propensity of imagining transcultural adoption as radically calling into question ideas of biogenetic attachment, racial genealogy, cultural identity and normative family-making. How might the predicament of 'being adopted' transculturally enable the transformative agency of 'adoptive being' for all? Exploring works by Andrea Levy, Barbara Kingsolver, Toni Morrison, Sebastian Barry, Caryl Phillips, Jackie Kay and several others, Life Lines makes a groundbreaking intervention in such fields as transcultural studies, postcolonial thought, and adoption theory and practice.
