Book Excerpt :

Kingsley Amis’s poetry tackles all the grimly humorous subjects he tackled in his novels—lust, lost love, booze, money and the lack of it, old age, death—and does so with immense formal poise. A master of both traditional and unconventional meters with a perfect ear for parody, Amis wrote satires, epigrams, and rueful and scornful songs that are remarkable not only for their virtuosity and humor but for their scabrous realism. It all adds up to a small, entirely individual, and memorably bracing body of work. As Amis writes: “Beauty, they tell me, is a dangerous thing, / Whose touch will burn, but I’m asbestos, see?”

Book Short Summary:

He wrote this book for all those who suffer from the same addictions and mental afflictions he and his family endured. Despite all his pain, Kevin never lost his faith. He wanted all of you who endured the same pain that he did to understand what many people struggle with in their daily lives. He urged you to speak up so that our society would be understanding to those in misery and to understand and to find help, in any way you can, for them. Kevin’s message to you who are suffering was to seek help for yourself and your loved ones and realize that suicide hurts everyone: wives, children, parents, extended families, and even those whom you never met. He wanted you to also reach out to God every moment of every day. He wanted you to know that you are loved and that there can be help for you. Kevin’s desire was that all those who suffer and read this book would be educated about these afflictions and realize they are understood and loved so that they need never be alone again. This book could be a miracle for yourself or someone you love. Kevin was like a son to me. I loved him. I wish I could have helped save him.

Book Short Summary:

Broadway's top orchestrators - Robert Russell Bennett, Don Walker, Philip J. Lang, Jonathan Tunick - are names well known to musical theatre fans, but few people understand precisely what the orchestrator does. The Sound of Broadway Music is the first book ever written about these unsung stars of the Broadway musical whose work is so vital to each show's success. The book examines the careers of Broadway's major orchestrators and follows the song as it travels from the composer's piano to the orchestra pit. Steven Suskin has meticulously tracked down thousands of original orchestral scores, piecing together enigmatic notes and notations with long-forgotten documents and current interviews with dozens of composers, producers, conductors and arrangers. The information is separated into three main parts: a biographical section which gives a sense of the life and world of twelve major theatre orchestrators, as well as incorporating briefer sections on another thirty arrangers and conductors; a lively discussion of the art of orchestration, written for musical theatre enthusiasts (including those who do not read music); a biographical section which gives a sense of the life and world of twelve major theatre orchestrators, as well as incorporating briefer sections on another thirty arrangers and conductors; and an impressive show-by-show listing of more than seven hundred musicals, in many cases including a song-by-song listing of precisely who orchestrated what along with relevant comments from people involved with the productions. Stocked with intriguing facts and juicy anecdotes, many of which have never before appeared in print, The Sound of Broadway Music brings fascinating and often surprising new insight into the world of musical theatre.

Book Short Summary:

There is no way you can read this book and not feel the pain and joys of Mattie Posey as she lives in the aftermath of the Civil War on a farm in Mississippi. The times are hard and she has to do the work of a man on the family farm, as she has no brothers to help with the farm work. When her religiously prejudiced parents interfere with her love for a catholic boy, Mattie’s pain devastates her soul and threatens to break her spirit. Mattie’s manic/depressive mother, Annie, vacillates between extreme emotional lows and highs, which cause her to be very strict, and a harsh disciplinarian. Mattie’s father, Wade, is a gentle, kind man. However, he does not take a stand against his wife’s extreme discipline of the children. Mattie must assume her mother’s duties and care for her when she is incapacitated by her depression. A rogue panther is lured to the Posey house by the smell of fresh, butchered pork which hangs in the smokehouse. The family’s life is endangered when the dogs corner the panther under the kitchen but Annie’s quick thinking and action saves her family. Mattie’s love for her horse, Prince and her confidence in his speed entice her to enter the horse race at the Neshoba County Fair. Her determination to prove Prince as the fastest horse in the community causes her to break rules in order to win the race. The Posey family and the black family, who shares their surname, have been bound in a close relationship since Wade and Joshua were small children. The trials of rugged farm life and the illnesses and deaths due to a lack of medical care bind them even closer. When Mattie falls in love with Frank Haney, a boy of the Catholic faith, her prejudiced parents take drastic measures to prevent their marriage, so they decide to elope. The Ku Klux Klan interferes with Wade’s efforts to reward his faithful, black friend with a deed to part of his farm. When a cross is burned in his front yard he visits each of the Klan members and gives them a piece of the charred cross. Years later, Mattie meets John Mayo, who is twenty years her senior and when he proposes marriage to her she has difficulty accepting because of her love for Frank.

Book Short Summary:

Julie Whitesel Weston left her hometown of Kellogg, Idaho, but eventually it pulled her back. Only when she returned to this mining community in the Idaho Panhandle did she begin to see the paradoxes of the place where she grew up. Her book combines oral history, journalistic investigation, and personal reminiscence to take a fond but hard look at life in Kellogg during “the good times.” Kellogg in the late 1940s and fifties was a typical American small town complete with high school football and basketball teams, marching band, and anti-Communist clubs; yet its bars, gambling dens, and brothels were entrenched holdovers from a rowdier frontier past. The Bunker Hill Mining Company, the largest employer, paid miners good wages for difficult, dangerous work, while the quest for lead, silver, and zinc denuded the mountainsides and laced the soil and water with contaminants. Weston researched the late-nineteenth-century founding of Kellogg and her family’s five generations in Idaho. She interviewed friends she grew up with, their parents, and her own parents’ friends—miners mostly, but also businesspeople, housewives, and professionals. Much of this memoir of place set during the Cold War and post-McCarthyism is told through their voices. But Weston also considers how certain people made a difference in her life, especially her band director, her ski coach, and an attorney she worked for during a major strike. She also explores her charged relationship with her father, a hardworking doctor revered in the community for his dedication but feared at home for his drinking and rages. The Good Times Are All Gone Now begins the day the smokestacks came down, and it reaches far back into collective and personal memory to understand a way of life now gone. The company town Weston knew is a different place, where “Uncle Bunker” is a Superfund site, and where the townspeople, as in previous hard times, have endured to reinvent Kellogg—not once, but twice.

"An outstanding debut-confident, compelling, with a surprise around every corner.

So says Curtis Wade, the subject of Jack's new true crime docuseries, convicted of a young woman's murder four years prior.

But when the series finale is wildly successful, a retrial sees Curtis walk free. And then another victim turns up dead. To set things right, Jack goes back to the sleepy vineyard town where it all began, bent on discovering what really happened.

Book Short Summary:

In the aftermath of a messy divorce, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang writes in the hope of beginning to build a new life with four children, bossy aunties, unreliable suitors, and an uncertain political landscape. The lyric essays in You Cannot Resist Me When My Hair Is in Braids deftly navigate the space between cultures and reflect on lessons learned from both Asian American elders and young multiracial children, punctuated by moments rich with cultural and linguistic nuance. In her prologue, Wang explains, "Buddhists say that suffering comes from unsatisfied desire, so for years I tried to close the door to desire. I was so successful, I not only closed the door, I locked it, barred it, nailed it shut, then stacked a bunch of furniture in front of it. And now that door is open, wide open, and all my insides are spilling out." Full of current events of the day and #HashtagsOfTheMoment, the topics in the collection are wide ranging, including cooking food to show love, surviving Chinese School, being an underpaid lecturer, defending against yellow dildos, navigating immigration issues, finding love in a time of elections, crying with children separated from their parents at the border, charting the landscape of frugal/hoarder elders during the pandemic, witnessing COVID-inspired anti–Asian American violence while reflecting on the death of Vincent Chin, teaching her sixteen-year-old son to drive after the deaths of Trayvon Martin and George Floyd, and trusting the power of writing herself into existence. Within these lyric essays, some of which are accompanied by artwork and art installations, Wang finds the courage and hope to speak out for herself and for an entire generation of Asian American women. A notable work in the landscape of Asian American literature as well as Midwest and Michigan-based literature, You Cannot Resist Me When My Hair Is in Braids features a clear and powerful voice that brings all people together in these political and pandemic times.

Book Short Summary:

“Text Me has the thrills and laughs of a romantic comedy, but with an inverted message: ‘There just isn't only one love story in our lives,’ Schaefer writes. If you’re lucky, friends will be the protagonists in these multiple love stories. It’s high time that we start seeing it that way.”—NPR.org A personal and sociological examination—and ultimately a celebration—of the evolution of female friendship in pop culture and modern society For too long, women have been told that we are terrible at being friends, that we can’t help being cruel or competitive, or that we inevitably abandon each other for romantic partners. But we are rejecting those stereotypes and reclaiming the power of female friendship. In Text Me When You Get Home, journalist Kayleen Schaefer interviews more than one hundred women about their BFFs, soulmates, girl gangs, and queens while tracing this cultural shift through the lens of pop culture. Our love for each other is reflected in Abbi and Ilana, Issa and Molly, #squadgoals, the acclaim of Girls Trip and Big Little Lies, and Galentine’s Day. Schaefer also includes her own history of grappling with a world that told her to rely on men before she realized that her true source of support came from a strong tribe of women. Her personal narrative and celebration of her own relationships weaves throughout the evolution of female friendship on-screen, a serious look at how women have come to value one another and our relationships. Text Me When You Get Home is a validation that has never existed before. A thoughtful, heart-soaring, deeply reported look at how women are taking a stand for their friendships and not letting go.

Book Short Summary:

A “superb [and] often hilarious” memoir of a life in journalism, from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Growing Up (The New York Times Book Review). “Baker here recalls his years at the Baltimore Sun, where, on ‘starvation wages,’ he worked on the police beat, as a rewrite man, feature writer and White House correspondent. Sent to London in 1953 to report on the coronation, he spent the happiest year of his life there as an innocent abroad. Moving to the New York Times and becoming a ‘two-fisted drinker,’ he covered the Senate and the national political campaigns of 1956 and 1960, and, just as he was becoming bored with routine reporting and the obligation to keep judgments out of his stories, was offered the opportunity to write his own op-ed page column, ‘The Observer.’ With its lively stories about journalists, Washington politicians and topical scandals, the book will delight Baker's devotees—and significantly expand their already vast number.” —Publishers Weekly “Aspiring writers will chuckle over Baker's first, horrible day on police beat, his panicked interview with Evelyn Waugh, and his arrival at Queen Elizabeth's coronation in top hat, tails, and brown-bag lunch.”—Library Journal “A wonderful book.” —Kirkus Reviews

Book Short Summary:

Inspired by the biblical story of Abigail in 1 Samuel, a Christian woman stands up for what is right, despite life-threatening consequences. When Faith married her husband Roger Nolan he seemed to be an upstanding businessman, owner of a remote mercantile outside the town of Bountiful, Oregon. But Faith quickly learned the truth-that her husband is dishonest in his business practices and likes his liquor, turning mean when he indulges. When Faith discovers that Roger has yet again failed to deliver critical winter supplies to Nathan Bartlett, owner of the nearby logging camp, she takes the order up the mountain herself. Furious, Roger confronts Faith when she returns, and she is knocked unconscious. When Faith wakes, she finds Roger dead in a pool of his own blood, and she soon stands accused of murder. Having fought in the War Between the States, Nathan has seen enough violence to last a lifetime. He has always admired Faith's quiet strength and integrity and finds it hard to believe such a gentle woman capable of harming anyone. However, Nathan begins to struggle with his instinct to protect Faith when evidence mounts against her. As more and more people begin to think Faith is guilty, only her trust in God can give her the hope she needs to survive this trial.

Book Short Summary:

Vicki Hart Halleland has dealt with depression virtually all of her life. She has had a lot to deal with—her breast cancer, her husband being diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and more. Although her life may not have been smooth sailing, she had no reason to end it all. Yes, she was depressed, but she was not the only person in the world to suffer from this disease. Within a twenty-minute conversation with Dr. R.—the psychiatrist that the Social Security caseworker recommended—she has come to the conclusion that the author is indeed suicidal and immediately orders her to go to a psychiatric hospital. This is where the nightmare begins . . . In You’re Taking Me Where? Halleland reveals the “dark” side of life and what trusting the system can do to a relatively sane person. She shares her experience inside the mental institution and the damage that a short twenty-seven hours did to unravel the two years of therapy that she spent with Dr. Hall, her personal psychologist. Delve inside her thoughts as her anxieties grew and see how she used humor to cope with her depression. If she didn’t laugh at it all, she would have lost it and cried the whole time. The author has been able to control her depression with medication, support from family and friends, and of course, with the help of a caring and compassionate therapist. Although her experience was a terrible and frightening ordeal, Halleland used humor to turn it around.

Book Short Summary:

First published in 1897, “Dracula” is a Gothic horror novel written by seminal Irish writer Bram Stoker. Jonathan Harker is a newly-qualified solicitor from England who travels to the Carpathian Mountains on the border of Transylvania, Bukovina, and Moldavia to oversee the sale of a castle. The current owner of the property is one Count Dracula, whom Harker initially perceives as gracious and welcoming, but whom he soon realises has diabolical plans of a preternatural nature. Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847 – 1912) was an Irish author most famous for writing this novel, as well as the influence it has had upon the horror and vampire genre in print and film. Other notable works by this author include: “Miss Betty” (1898), “The Mystery of the Sea” (1902), and “The Jewel of Seven Stars” (1903). This classic of horror fiction is not to be missed by lovers of the genre and constitutes a must-read of anyone with an interest in vampires and vampire fiction. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Book Short Summary:

Charming underachiever Jamie Garner is living a sexy slacker's life in San Francisco during the dot-com boom--avoiding his stalled career as a radio producer, barely holding on to his relationship, but surrounded by fun-loving friends. And then Jamie gets the call he's always dreaded: Teddy, the father who never accepted him, has died. It's time for the prodigal son to come home to the subdivisions and strip malls of suburban New Jersey to face the emotionally barren family he left behind years ago. Caught between the guilt he wants to shake and the grief he can't express, Jamie takes solace in a box of memorabilia he finds in the attic, marked "1960," the year his father spent in San Francisco but kept secret. Jamie is especially drawn to a moody, enigmatic photo of the stunning Dean Foster, his dad's closest friend, who headed west then mysteriously disappeared. Determined to unlock the mystery of his father, Jamie seeks out the artists and poets, the free spirits and wild men mentioned in Teddy's letters to Dean. It's a journey that takes him deep into the subcultures of San Francisco, from the bohemian heyday of the Beat Generation through the Internet mania of his contemporary world, even as it unleashes something primal, hungry, and slightly dangerous in Jamie. As his search for the elusive Dean Foster turns ever more obsessive, undermining his friendships, his income, and his fidelity to his partner, Jamie is forced to decide what he is willing to risk in the pursuit of the truth. "Engaging . . . the flow and intensity of the writing make it difficult to put Soehnlein's book down . . . With remarkably stylish and witty prose, Soehnlein keeps the reading convincing and compelling, displaying a knack for giving just enough detail to put the reader right in the scene."--The San Francisco Chronicle

Book Short Summary:

She’s trying to escape her past. He wants to be the man to save her… I should be enjoying life as a college freshman. I should be pursuing my dream of becoming a veterinarian. I should be working hard to make sense of my precalculus math class. I shouldn’t be waking up my college roommate with screaming nightmares. I shouldn’t be flashing back, reliving the three weeks of hell I barely survived last year. And I definitely shouldn’t be spending time with sexy player Marcus Reid. But engineering student Marcus is the only one keeping me from failing my math course, so I grudgingly let him into my life. I never expect the king of hookups will share his painful past. Or that I’ll tell him my secrets in return, opening up and trusting him in a way I thought I’d never be able to again. When our fragile future together is threatened by a stalker I thought was locked away for good, Marcus is determined to protect me—and I’m determined to protect Marcus...even if that means pushing him away. This novel was previously published by a traditional publisher under the same title. An addictive, gripping journey of hope, healing, and finding forgiveness. I could not put this book down! Both characters were raw and authentic, and the chemistry between them was off the charts. Marcus Reid is the ultimate book boyfriend.—Rachel Harris, Author of SEVEN DAY FIANCE TELL ME WHEN is a heartbreaking and emotional story. Be prepared to do nothing else but read once you start this book! —Fresh Fiction I felt that even though the subject matter is a little over used, Tell Me When did it in a way that was rawer, darker and more realistic and that made it feel fresh and unique. —Bookish Treasures If you're looking for an exciting read, filled with secrets, mystery, danger, and realism, this story is a perfect match! I give, Tell Me When, by Stina Lindenblatt, 4 Intense, Powerful, Healing, and "Falling in Love" filled Stars! —A bookish Escape I. LOVED. THIS.

Book Short Summary:

"Just Like Me: Beyond the Thousand-Yard Stare" contains battle scenes as vivid as those in a Tom Hanks movie and psychic twists and turns reminiscent of Hitchcock. — Don Duncan, retired journalist and World War II Army veteran "Just Like Me" is an exciting, riveting read. It will do much to further the understanding of the emotional turmoil resulting from war. — Carol Lodmell, retired educator This open and honest story is, I like to think, a freeing of some of Archie Morrison's demons into the ether to dilution and impotence. I like to think, too, that in its expression of hope, it is also about man seeking something much better than the worst he can do to others (and himself). It helps express, not just Archie's aspirations, but ours as well. — Richard Prince, retired dentist and Vietnam Navy veteran Archie Morrison creates an account of an unbelievable friendship that becomes believable when we see that it is built on truths that war diminishes but does not extinguish. — Denzil Walters, retired teacher and editor; World War II Navy veteran
