This enchanting cookbook by Carol Callahan allows us to reverse time and transcend space in order to enter a period and place in American history when confidence abounded and all things seemed possible and some Chicago families were able to live in a manner never to be equaled. Judge for yourself. The thirty-five illustrations that accompany the text document what a grand life-style it was. "If you want to see the richest half-dozen blocks in Chicago. . . drive down Prairie Avenue from Sixteenth Street to Twenty-second. Right there is a cluster of millionaires not to be matched for numbers anywhere else in the country." —Chicago Herald, 1887 And the Herald wasn’t guilty of braggadocio. Prairie Avenue was home to such august individuals as Marshall Field, George Pullman, Philip Armour, Gustavus Swift, William Kimball, Samuel Allerton, Joseph Sears, and John Glessner. Among the delights they enjoyed were the joys of the table—the recipes for which, preserved by family members, are shared here for the first time. Carol Callahan makes it possible to taste the flavors of that opulent era with a collection of more than two hundred historic recipes from the prominent nineteenth-century families of Prairie Avenue. All of the recipes have been tested and modernized for today’s cook. They range from everything you might like for breakfast to however you’d like your oysters to snacks, soups, salads, entrées, preserves, desserts, and some power-packed Prairie Avenue party punches. To place these dishes in their proper context, Callahan includes family anecdotes gathered through oral history interviews that encompass food, meals, health, and entertainment as well as other aspects of nineteenth-century Chicago life. Callahan devotes part of the book to discussions of the foods available to Prairie Avenue residents, the impact of the rapidly changing technology on cooking, the fine art of dining, the ritual of calling, the problems and pleasures of servants in the household, the children of Prairie Avenue, and the effect of the 1893 World’s Colombian Exposition on Chicago. Whether you elect to prepare these Victorian delights or simply savor them in your imagination, the Prairie Avenue Cookbook is sumptuous fare.

This is the first book-length study of the writings, work, and life of Renaissance man and Alabama native Albert Murray. The collection consists of essays and interviews written by prominent scholars of African American literature, jazz, and Albert Murray that illustrate Murray's place as a central figure in African American arts and letters and as an American cultural pioneer. "A very important contribution to the field of African American literary and cultural studies.... It present[s] the many facets of Murray's intellectual odyssey...[illuminating his] contribution to our national discussion on race, as well as his germinal insights on music, visual art, and literature." ---Herman Beavers, author of Wrestling Angels into Song: The Fictions of Ernest J. Gaines and James Alan McPherson "I appreciated the way the voices `sound' in the volume....It has the feeling of an ensemble---or, to use one of Mr. Murray's metaphors, a jazz band, with Murray's voice `taking the break' at key points. The melody is Murray, and there are countless riffs on his work." ---Carolyn J. Medine, coeditor of Teaching African American Religions

Members of Mark Callahan’s old military unit are being murdered. To discover who’s responsible and why, the former intelligence officer must partner with the only team member more dangerous than he is…Annabelle Monroe, his ex-wife. Now a private investigator, Annabelle would rather trade her pistol for a slingshot than work with Mark again. But a shattered heart is no excuse to avoid a reunion when lives are at stake. Together, she and Mark go hunting a killer. Long days and steamy nights make it impossible to deny the desire still burning between them, but the reasons for their messy breakup haven’t changed. The bravest man she has ever known is still afraid to risk his heart. But when the killer’s trail leads to Brazos Bend and everything Mark holds dear is at stake, will he finally take the leap? Or will it be too late?
