  • Fun is the feeling of finding something new in something familiar. Reaching a new accomplishment in a difficult task at work. Succeeding at an act on the pitch or in the gym that had previously resulted in failure. Doing the same thing already seen before, even, but with small variation. Fun-size candy bars are fun for this reason.

  • Efforts to create Christian unity, or ecumenism, often carry a note of historical sadness. Prejudices borne of past violence are difficult to overcome. For more than a century following Martin Luther, Christian reformers and their political allies across Europe battled with the Catholic Church-aligned Holy Roman Empire. Catholics slaughtered Protestants; Protestants slaughtered Catholics; and both persecuted groups like the Anabaptists, who championed adult rather than infant baptism. Most traditions did not develop their distinctiveness by accident; many religious leaders staked their lives on their particular interpretation of the Bible. (I cannot and will not recant anything, since to act against ones conscience is neither safe nor right, Luther famously told the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V in the face of excommunication and death.) While relations among Christians are far more peaceful today than they were 500 years ago, Emma Green writes, the tension between theological particularity and yearning for universal fellowship is still just as complicated. And as global Christianity evolves, the tension is likely to increase.

The author of four previous novels and a collection of short stories, Egan is the writer of the Pulitzer Prizewinning A Visit From the Goon Squad (2010), one of the most stirring and unusual works of fiction of the past decade. Fans of Egan who have been eagerly anticipating her next novel may not initially be sure what to make of Manhattan Beach, which is a historical novelperhaps todays least fashionable form, and a thorough surprise after Goon Squad, the last chapter of which takes place in Manhattan in what seems to be the mid-2020s, and features smartphone-using toddlers and a sinister method of viral marketing. But perhaps the turn to the past is not as large a leap as it appears, writes Ruth Franklin, in the November issue.
