I wasn’t trying to discover new places. I wasn’t going to break or create a record. I was going only on an impulse, entirely my own, just out of the natural curiosity that life brings, the delight of living. Was this not a valid enough reason? With curiosity in her heart and a prayer on her lips, Nabaneeta hauled herself on to a truck and set off on a journey to fill her unfilled bag of stories. Sacks, paper cartons, steel cupboards, wicker furniture, baskets of angry, clucking chickens, and a sharp smell surrounded her. How many days in this stench? How many hours? How many endless moments? This is a travelogue of Nabaneeta’s journey from Jorhat in Assam all the way to the McMahon line at the Indo-Tibetan border, a trip undertaken on an impulse, detailing her encounters with countless ordinary individuals, their reactions to a middle-aged woman’s solo road trip in India in 1977, and the extraordinary events that unfold along the way. Reflective and humorous, the narrative presents travel as an avenue of liberation.
He had seen his wife raped by a Vietcong commando, who then took the woman
away in a military truck, along with other women and a few children, and headed
to a reeducation camp. Duong ... He was more alone than alone, but he never.

This is a parable of my generation; a book about what they have made us and what we wanted to be; an acknowledgment that we cannot change the others if we don’t first changes ourselves; a surrender to the evidence that changing is a slow and difficult process and “it is easier to be in our future the same persons we were in our past”; it represents the unfinished work of a generation that had decided to run ahead faster than they could. Ann McMahon was born on June 10, 1946, in Riverton, NJ. She was the second child of a family of Irish immigrants. She receives a traditional catholic education and learns from her mother what church and school cannot teach; the art of living. As a child, “life looked like a simple game easy to play”. Sustained by the basic principles of conformist living Ann goes, along with all the baby boomers, through the shock waves of her generation; the cultural revolution, the women liberation movement, the Vietnam war, the civil right movement, the Beat generation etc... Resolved not to be swayed by the power and appeal of these events she looks at them from a safe distance and proceeds with few doubts and much determination toward her simple dream: a happy family with husband and children. Life, however,comes to be a game difficult to play and becomes marred by questions without simple answers: the tragic death of her sister, the unforeseen relationship with her brother, the unsettled friendship with Cathy, the concealed love for Rob, the overwhelming presence of her mother, the domineering husband, the children’s choices. Unable to change herself or everybody around her, she turns, like others in this story, into a disheartened guard and prisoner of her own culture.

Cultural Writing. Travel Essays. "Reading NIGHT DIVER is the literary equivalent of having sex for the first time: frightening, blissful, transcendent, addictive, bejeweled with flashpoints of experience never to be forgotten. For my money, Bucky McMahon is the greatest--also the most underappreciated, underrated and overlooked--adventure travel writer working today, and one of the best on the team in that long scrimmage of yesterdays. Think of the spawn of weird marriages--Sir Richard Burton and Barry Hannah; Twain and Krakauer--and you'll begin to get a fix on McMahon, a master essayist and luminous spokesman for the ineffable metaphysical moment lurking at the vortex of knee-buckling danger and heart-stopping fun"--Bob Shacochis.

“Focuses on the little-known realities behind the Manhattan Project […] Readers who enjoyed Martha Hall Kelly’s Lilac Girls will appreciate this glimpse into the beliefs and attitudes that shaped America during World War II.”— Library Journal In the bestselling tradition of Hidden Figures and The Wives of Los Alamos, comes this riveting novel of the everyday people who worked on the Manhattan Project during World War II. “What you see here, what you hear here, what you do here, let it stay here.” In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined for a city that doesn’t officially exist. Oak Ridge, Tennessee has sprung up in a matter of months—a town of trailers and segregated houses, 24-hour cafeterias, and constant security checks. There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose purpose is never explained. They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no questions and reveal nothing to outsiders. The girls spend their evenings socializing and flirting with soldiers, scientists, and workmen at dances and movies, bowling alleys and canteens. June longs to know more about their top-secret assignment and begins an affair with Sam Cantor, the young Jewish physicist from New York who oversees the lab where she works and understands the end goal only too well, while her beautiful roommate Cici is on her own mission: to find a wealthy husband and escape her sharecropper roots. Across town, African-American construction worker Joe Brewer knows nothing of the government’s plans, only that his new job pays enough to make it worth leaving his family behind, at least for now. But a breach in security will intertwine his fate with June’s search for answers. When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth about Oak Ridge into devastating focus, June must confront her ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war itself. "The Atomic City Girls is a fascinating and compelling novel about a little-known piece of WWII history."—Maggie Leffler, international bestselling author (Globe and Mail) of The Secrets of Flight
