"Transcendent Kingdom is a deeply moving portrait of a family of immigrants ravaged by depression and addiction and grief - a novel about faith, Science, relgion, love." front flap

Synopsis

Gifty is a sixth-year PhD candidate in neuroscience at the Stanford University School of Medicine studying reward-seeking behavior in mice and the neural circuits of depression and addiction. Her brother, Nana, was a gifted high school athlete who died of a heroin overdose after an ankle injury left him hooked on OxyContin. Her suicidal mother is living in her bed. Gifty is determined to discover the scientific basis for the suffering she sees all around her. But even as she turns to the hard sciences to unlock the mystery of her family’s loss, she finds herself hungering for her childhood faith and grappling with the evangelical church in which she was raised, whose promise of salvation remains as tantalizing as it is elusive. Transcendent Kingdom is a deeply moving portrait of a family of Ghanaian immigrants ravaged by depression and addiction and grief—a novel about faith, science, religion, love. Exquisitely written, emotionally searing, this is an exceptionally powerful follow-up to Gyasi’s phenomenal debut.

About Nostalgic Books & Elements

Nostalgic Books and Elements LLC, NB&E, sells very good condition used books (many of which are signed) to readers and collectors who see books as literary treasures. Unlike many online bookshops, NB&E provides multiple images of the book you will receive and sends them to you promptly with care.

NB&E, prides itself on rescuing unique and nostalgic books that sometimes include an element. I provide detailed descriptions, multiple photographs, and wrap most dust jacket in a protective sleeve.

Books are noted as either SIGNED or INSCRIBED accordingly. If the book is a remainder or ex-library it is noted. I seldom, if ever, sell these types of books. I CHERISH books and want to provide you with the books you will be proud to own.

With gratitude,

Janice Dawson
