The Stories of Alice Adams by Alice Adams

Her collection covers love in all its forms.


Pakistan: In the Shadow of Jihad and Afghanistan by Mary Anne Weaver

A brilliant and insightful account of an important nation that is in the midst of a serious identity crisis.


100 Years of Harley Davidson by Willie G. Davidson

No company has done more to perpetuate the Biker myth.


Jocks 2: Coming Out to Play by Dan Woog

Masculinity is more than hair on your back and ball scratching.


The Hours by Michael Cunningham

A meditation on creation, destruction, ordinariness, sanity-insanity and the fine line between the two.


The Feud that Sparked the Renaissance: How Brunelleschi and Ghiberti Changed the Art World by Paul R

He proposes a reasonable and engaging thesis -- that in Florence in 1403, two men, Filippo Brunelleschi and Lorenzo Ghiberti, fired the first shots of an artistic revolution that marked 'the beginning of a modern consciousness.'"


Lonzie’s Fried Chicken

The one unarguable hallmark of a Southerner, however, is his or her inborn, innate ability to tell a story. 'Lonzie's Fried Chicken', a small and succulent literary journal out of Lynn, North Carolina, is busy providing space for the storytellers of the New South to spin their tales and work their special magic.


Night Train

A pleasantly un-self-conscious blend of subjects and settings.


Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern

These texts together form an intricate picture of a state of American literature and give the reader access to new works by promising authors.
