Ace F Ace F Frontispiece. She asked me many questions about my world and its customs, and answered many that I asked her.
She was much interested when she learned that our men had but a single wife, for the U-ga, like the Va-gas, have many. How terrible! It is because of this that the U-ga men have so many wives, for the more children they have, the greater assurance that they will live again. I am sorry, for I like to live, and I was very anxious to keep on living forever. I questioned her further, asking her what made her believe she would live again in her children if she had any. Do we not, all of us, recall having lived in the past?
Therefore, is it not safe for us all to assume that we shall live again? She looked at me quizzically.
I have been slave, commoner, princess, and queen in the past. Sometimes my lives have been happy, and sometimes they have not, but there was always happiness in the thought that I should live again, and in the hope for a great number of happy existences in the future. A Fighting Man of Mars. The Moon 'Men'. It explains coffee jargon, the seemingly mysterious seed-to-bean processes, and how one can roast and brew coffee at home.
For anyone interested in coffee or wanting to be, Left Coast Roast is a bookshelf essential. Set in the disquiet of the rural midwest, John Darnielle's Universal Harvester is a book about mothers who leave, the men they leave behind, and the ways in which grief can breed an immutable and distinct urge to creative narrative where narrative cannot exist. As they depart on the task of uncovering a dangerously well-kept secret, one that Darnielle, with his lyrical hand, situates beneath an undulating shroud of mystery, strangers become neighbors and neighbors become strangers.
The book deftly explores the duende of midwestern landscape, the capabilities of surveillance at the brink of the Internet boom, and the tenuous nature of storytelling itself. Universal Harvester is a gothic Rear Window for the information age. When refuge life in the tiny island village owned by the wealthy father who has disowned him becomes unbearably dull, he sets off for horse tracks and adventure. With the help of a telepathic dog Eddie manages to keep it together long enough to become a reputable antique vinyl record dealer and reunite with his long lost love before his life comes full circle.
In his latest novel Poe Ballantine serves up what his cult of loyal fans have come to expect, which is a fast-paced exploration of the gritty madness of underdogs and outsiders, told with a superb wit and artistry that blends Mark Twain and Hunter Thompson with Charles Bukowski and Carl Hiaasen while maintaining a distinct style of his own.

If you enjoy screwball characters scrambling through the goat rodeo of their own questionable choices, and laugh-out-loud page turners, Whirlaway will spin you right where you want to be. This is one of those books that happened to find me when I most needed it. Imagine Wanting Only This would make a great gift for recent graduates or the struggling somethings. A very smart, very funny story about technology and intimacy. Made me ugly cry, several times, in public--this book gets at something very real and achy about what it's like being a human at exactly this moment.
Mouse is running for office but will not call the cops when his daughters are kidnapped on election day. Barbie and Ken drag themselves from poolside oh, what they do there! They suit up in camo and head for the woods to rescue the girls from the strange robot-like fundamentalist family unit hiding out in a van, waiting for the next phase of Ordination fulfillment. Crazy, a hoot, read in one sitting! Richard Russo blew me away with this memoir about his relationship with his mother, a self-proclaimed independent woman from a run-down upstate New York town.
Russo writes with a poignant simplicity, making us care about his relationship with a more than difficult woman. We follow them from Gloversville, NY, to Arizona, to Illinois, to Maine, all the while watching Russo struggle with doubts about how he cares for her. It is so easy to be inside of the author's head, to see through his eyes, and yet see much more than he does.
We want to help him, help her, shake their shoulders. A very thoughtful, funny, heartbreaking book, for anyone who's ever had a relationship with anyone. So, everyone. In Beckett's trilogy, he almost writes without characters, scenes or plots, relying instead on each sentence to propel these novels forward into the oblivion of the writer's imagination. Perfect for a serious yet sensitive laugh, as readers might expect from a writer who was stabbed in the heart by a pimp in his younger years.
Robin Hood Recommended Reading and Viewing
A true-life tale of man and horse literally leaping over inconceivable hurdles to fulfill their dreams. This is the story of immigrant Harry de Leyer and his rescued plow horse Snowman and their quest to win the jumping championship in the prestigious National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden. Great reading for anyone in search of that rush you get watching anyone succeed against impossible odds. Compulsively readable. Ariel Levy, a staff writer for the New Yorker, writes breathtakingly of her life as a writer, the loss of her unborn baby while on assignment in Mongolia, and the end of her marriage.
The book is perceptive, transcendent, and heartbreaking. Levy writes about with the same sort of reverence about her life and her writing assignments for the New Yorker. If you, like me, seek out her brilliant stories in every issue, or even if you don't, you will be mesmerized once again. Skip to main content. Staff Selections. Eula Biss.
