The Moving of the Water: Stories

Free sample

 Stories anchored in the Welsh American immigrant experience. 
Anchored in the community of first-, second-, and third-generation Welsh Americans in Utica, New York, during the 1960s, the stories in David Lloyd’s The Moving of the Water delve into universal concerns: identity, home, religion, language, culture, belonging, personal and national histories, mortality. Unflinching in their portrayal of the traumas and conflicts of fictional Welsh Americans, these stories also embrace multiple communities and diverse experiences in linked, innovative narratives: soldiers fighting in World War I and in Vietnam, the criminal underworld, the poignant struggles of children and adults caught between old and new worlds. The complexly damaged characters of these surprising and affecting stories seek transformation and revelation, healing and regeneration: a sometimes traumatic “moving of the water.”

“This collection of stories has a great-grandfather: Joyce’s Dubliners. Like Joyce’s, Lloyd’s stories are in the realist mode, yet sometimes broken up with startling, dream-like, hallucinatory passages that are decisive in opening up another range of experience. The final title story is magnificent, no other word will do, and it recalls ‘The Dead,’ the concluding story of Joyce’s book. If Joyce were from Utica, New York, as Lloyd is, he’d have written this book and called it Uticans.” — Frank Lentricchia, author of The Music of the Inferno

“A unique collection of stories that are sometimes puzzling, sometimes moving, sometimes enigmatic, and sometimes crystal clear, but always profoundly interesting.” — Jan Morris, author of A Writer’s House in Wales

As yet, flow cytometry is not used so widely in microbiology as in some other disciplines. This volume presents contributions flow cytometry to study a from research microbiologists who use diverse set of problems. It illustrates the power of the technique, and may persuade others of its usefulness. Most of the con tributors gathered in Cardiff on 23 October 1991, at a meeting organized for the Royal Microscopical Society by Dr. Richard Allman, but the content of their chapters is not limited by the discourse of that meeting, and for balance other experts were invited to write for this book. Flow Cytometry in Microbiology thus represents the first collection of articles specifically devoted to the applications of a technique which promises so much to those investigating the microbial world.
