Nothing Is Okay Book Description :

Nothing is Okay is the second full-length poetry collection by Rachel Wiley, whose work simultaneously deconstructs the lies that we were taught about our bodies and our beings, and builds new ways of viewing ourselves. As she delves into queerness, feminism, fatness, dating, and race, Wiley molds these topics into a punching critique of culture and a celebration of self. A fat positive activist, Wiley's work soars and challenges the bounds of bodies and hearts, and the ways we carry them.

Shanks for Nothing Book Description :

The hilarious sequel to Rick Reilly’s beloved bestselling golf novel Missing Links Life is going pretty well for Raymond “Stick” Hart. He’s happily married to the former Ponkaquogue Municipal Golf Club assistant pro, the beauteous Cajun firecracker Dannie, raising his rambunctious son, Charlie, and getting by writing smart-mouthed greeting cards for fifty bucks a pop. Best of all, nothing has changed at Ponky, the worst golf course in America. You still have to hook it past the toxic waste dump on No. 1 and under the billboard on No. 8, the fried-egg sandwiches are terrible but cheap, and his pal Two Down is always up for a sucker bet. Then, one disaster of a day, Stick’s world does a ten-car pile-up. The cheapskate bastard owner of Ponky announces he’s retiring to a nudist camp in Florida and selling the club to the Mayflower Club next door, a bastion of blue-blood snobbery that plans to pave Ponky over. Worse, its membership includes Stick’s hated father. Who promptly drops dead. Just before Stick’s pal Two Down loses $12,000 to a golf hustler who turns out to be funded by the Russian mob. Which is about the same time that Hoover, Ponky’s worst golfer and the owner of an impressive array of useless golf gadgets purchased with his wife’s money, learns she’ll cut him off if he doesn’t break a hundred in one month. Then a practical joke makes Dannie believe that Stick’s been stepping out with the gorgeous new clubhouse girl, the eye-popping Kelly, and he’s soon living on the forty-year-old couch in the Ponky clubhouse. Luckily, Stick has a solution to all his problems. He’ll qualify for the British Open.

The Monkeewrench crew returns to face the city of Minneapolis’s worst nightmare—a rampant serial killer on the loose—in this electrifying thriller from the author of The Sixth Idea. When Minneapolis homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are called to a crime scene in a heavily wooded city park, everything about the setting is all too familiar. And when they discover a playing card on the victim's body, their worst fears are confirmed—there’s a serial killer operating in the city for the first time in years. Across town, Grace MacBride and her unconventional partners at Monkeewrench Software find themselves at both personal and career crossroads. Weary of the darker side of their computer work for law enforcement, they agree to take on a private missing-persons case in a small farming community in southwestern Minnesota. As the violence accelerates in Minneapolis, Magozzi and Gino soon realize their killer is planning to complete the deck, and they enlist Monkeewrench to help stop the rampage. As a baffling tangle of evidence accumulates, the cops and Monkeewrench make the unlikely connections among a farmer’s missing daughter, a serial killer, and a decades-old stabbing that brings them face-to-face with pure evil.

Louisiana Coffee with Lots of Cream Book Description :

Louisiana Coffeewith lots of cream is Dr. Betty Reynolds fifth book to be published. Not surprisingly, this book is not about coffee, nor is it about cream. Instead, it is a delightful medley of intriguing tales covering four generations of a New Orleans Creole family. Since Creole usually denotes a mixing of bloods, the color of their skin can be as varied as the color of ones coffee ranging from dark, dark chocolate to the lightest of rich cream. This fictional memoir appropriately starts a hundred years ago in New Orleansthe home of the family matriarch, Bertha Mayberry. Berthas story is a mysterious one that she preferred to be kept locked among other family secrets. She was particularly sensitive about having to reveal her misfortune of being trapped in a bordello when she first arrived in New Orleans as a young girl. Her romantic rescue ended in tragedy, but she did transcend in the end and married a popular Black jazz musician named William Sweetwater Lewis. Together they gained respectability by working hard and providing their five daughters with a good education, a passion for music, and a young life filled with parties and gala events in a city that was known for them. Berthas children as well as her childrens children follow their own paths in choosing where and how they will live out their lives. Their accounts of triumphs and mishaps take you on a fascinating journey to experience the mysteries of black magic in the Louisiana swamps, a numbers racket in Detroit and the casinos in Las Vegas when the mob was in control. Some leave the safety of their ancestral home on Bourbon Street to carve out new lives in other far-away places such as the Jersey Shores, Philadelphia, or New York. Whatever their destination, each member of the Lewis clan brings to the saga an interesting storyline that shares his/her unique motivations, desires and actions that sometimes lead to less than favorable consequences. Louisiana Coffeeis meant to inform, rather than to alarm.

The year is 1980, and President Jimmy Carter has given away the Panama Canal. The Russians have invaded Afghanistan, and Iranian radical Muslims are holding fifty-six American embassy employees hostage. Interest rates and unemployment are in the double digits. At this point in history, the world is a nasty place, and for the Palm Avenue Auction Gallery in Sarasota, Florida, things are equally bad. The auction business had been a source of entertainment in small resort areas throughout most of the 20th century. Then, times began to change as young people threw ink on fur coats. It became dangerous to wear expensive jewelry, and silver tea sets were no longer a status symbol. Summer stock, dinner theaters, and comedy clubs filled the entertainment appetite. Colby chose a bad time to join the auction business. He spent his early years as an SAS British Army officer, same as the secretive Delta Force. Making his transition as a resort area auctioneer felt natural. At the Sarasota gallery, Colby is a comedian one minute and a salesman the next. Then, within one months time, two people end up dead, two are missing, and twenty million dollars has been stolen. The craziness of world history can take a back seat to Florida.

Nothing s Bad Luck Book Description :

Biography of legendary singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, spanning his nomadic youth and early recording career to his substance abuse, final album, and posthumous Grammy Awards As is the case with so many musicians, the life of Warren Zevon was blessed with talent and opportunity yet also beset by tragedy and setbacks. Raised mostly by his mother with an occasional cameo from his gangster father, Warren had an affinity and talent for music at an early age. Taking to the piano and guitar almost instantly, he began imitating and soon creating songs at every opportunity. After an impromptu performance in the right place at the right time, a record deal landed on the lap of a teenager who was eager to set out on his own and make a name for himself. But of course, where fame is concerned, things are never quite so simple. Drawing on original interviews with those closest to Zevon, including Crystal Zevon, Jackson Browne, Mitch Albom, Danny Goldberg, Barney Hoskyns, and Merle Ginsberg, Nothing's Bad Luck tells the story of one of rock's greatest talents. Journalist C.M. Kushins not only examines Zevon's troubled personal life and sophisticated, ever-changing musical style, but emphasizes the moments in which the two are inseparable, and ultimately paints Zevon as a hot-headed, literary, compelling, musical genius worthy of the same tier as that of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. In Nothing's Bad Luck, Kushins at last gives Warren Zevon the serious, in-depth biographical treatment he deserves, making the life of this complex subject accessible to fans old and new for the very first time.
