A grisly racial murder in what news commentators insist on calling “the heartland.” A feeding frenzy of mass media and seamy politics. An illicit love affair with the potential to wreck lives. In his grandly inventive last novel, John Gregory Dunne orchestrated these elements into a symphony of American violence, chicanery, and sadness.In the aftermath of Edgar Parlance’s killing, the small prairie town of Regent becomes a destination for everyone from a sociopathic teenaged supermodel to an enigmatic attorney with secret familial links to the worlds of Hollywood and organized crime. Out of their manifold convergences, their jockeying for power, publicity or love, Nothing Lost creates a drama of magnificent scope and acidity. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Devina is a 25-year old virgin consumed by the vision of her veiled prince. One day while she is leaving work, Devina accidentally bumps into a man who catches her in his strong arms, preventing her from falling. Devina is stunned by the familiarity of his strong, yet lilting Caribbean voice asking if she is okay. She is unable to respond because she is captivated by the love, passion, and desire she sees in his light brown eyes - - her body flushed with heated arousal as her skin remembers his sensual touch; her senses heightened as she inhales the euphoric scent of his cologne. As she gazes deeply into his familiar eyes, inhales his fresh breath and swallows bits of what seems to be his very essence, Devina wonders if her years of fantasizing have finally collided with her reality.

Struggles over space and resistance to geographic displacement gave birth to much of Chicano history and culture. In this pathfinding book, Raúl Villa explores how California Chicano/a activists, journalists, writers, artists, and musicians have used expressive culture to oppose the community-destroying forces of urban renewal programs and massive freeway development and to create and defend a sense of Chicano place-identity. Villa opens with a historical overview that shows how Chicano communities and culture have grown in response to conflicts over space ever since the United States' annexation of Mexican territory in the 1840s. Then, turning to the work of contemporary members of the Chicano intelligentsia such as Helena Maria Viramontes, Ron Arias, and Lorna Dee Cervantes, Villa demonstrates how their expressive practices re-imagine and re-create the dominant urban space as a community enabling place. In doing so, he illuminates the endless interplay in which cultural texts and practices are shaped by and act upon their social and political contexts.

Capturing the big-eyed scad off the Kona Coast of Hawai'i's Big Island that gather and move in dazzling clusters in order to deter predators, akule have been bountiful in Hawai'i for centuries. Their presence has commanded the attention of fisherman throughout the ages. The images command our attention, "living sculptures" as Levin calls them, evoking emotions and sensations in the onlooker as only the purest forms of natural biology can. Levin's black and white imagery vividly presents the massive akule schools suspended in movement and lucidly carries the reader with these hundreds of individuals moving in unison.
