The Classic work of fiction that dramatically illuminates the lives described in current nonfiction bestsellers like J.D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy and Nancy Isenberg's White Trash The modern literary classic that has been compared to To Kill a Mockingbird and Catcher in the Rye "As close to flawless as any reader could ask for." —The New York Times Book Review The publication of Dorothy Allison's Bastard Out of Carolina was a landmark event. The novel's profound portrait of family dynamics in the rural South won the author a National Book Award nomination and launched her into the literary spotlight. Critics have likened Allison to William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, and Harper Lee, naming her the first writer of her generation to dramatize the lives and language of poor whites in the South. Since its appearance, the novel has inspired an award-winning film and has been banned from libraries and classrooms, championed by fans, and defended by critics. Greenville County, South Carolina, is a wild, lush place that is home to the Boatwright family-a tight-knit clan of rough-hewn, hard- drinking men who shoot up each other's trucks, and indomitable women who get married young and age too quickly. At the heart of this story is Ruth Anne Boatwright, known simply as Bone, a bastard child who observes the world around her with a mercilessly keen perspective. When her stepfather Daddy Glen, "cold as death, mean as a snake," becomes increasingly more vicious toward her, Bone finds herself caught in a family triangle that tests the loyalty of her mother, Anney-and leads to a final, harrowing encounter from which there can be no turning back. Now available in a twentieth anniversary keepsake edition with a new afterword by the author.

A candid, heartfelt love story set in contemporary California that challenges the idea of what it means to be American, liberated, and in love When Huda meets Hadi, the boy she will ultimately marry, she is six years old. Both are the American-born children of Iraqi immigrants, who grew up on opposite ends of California. Hadi considers Huda his childhood sweetheart, the first and only girl he's ever loved, but Huda needs proof that she is more than just the girl Hadi's mother has chosen for her son. She wants what many other American girls have--the entertainment culture's almost singular tale of chance meetings, defying the odds, and falling in love. She wants stolen kisses, romantic dates, and a surprise proposal. As long as she has a grand love story, Huda believes no one will question if her marriage has been arranged. But when Huda and Hadi's conservative Muslim families forbid them to go out alone before their wedding, Huda must navigate her way through the despair of unmet expectations and dashed happily-ever-after ideals. Eventually she comes to understand the toll of straddling two cultures in a marriage and the importance of reconciling what you dreamed of with the life you eventually live. Tender, honest and irresistibly compelling, First Comes Marriage is the first Muslim-American memoir dedicated to the themes of love and sexuality. Huda and Hadi's story brilliantly circles around a series of firsts, chronicling two virgins moving through their first everything: first hand holding, first kiss, and first sexual encounter. First Comes Marriage is an almost unbearably humanizing tale that tucks into our hearts and lingers in our imagination, while also challenging long-standing taboos within the Muslim community and the romantic stereotypes we unknowingly carry within us that sabotage some of our best chances for finding true love.

When the parish priest asks the Meissen family to take in a rebellious boy from the state reformatory, her father agrees, convinced that God has finally found a way to give him a son. But when the boy rapes Mims, her father rushes her to the priest to confess, convinced that his daughter initiated the despicable act. In years following, Mims buries the horrid memory of the rape and her father’s ultimate betrayal. When she becomes a wife and mother, her shame and guilt ignite with a latent anger to create in her gruesome thoughts of inflicting violence on her loved ones. One night, she stands beside her baby’s crib, her rosary in one hand, and in the other, a ribbon with which she would strangle her baby. Will she succumb to the power of her anger, or will the God of her father and her church save her?

Als die Wärtersfrau ihrem Schatz gute Nacht wünscht, antwortet die ganze Tierschar darauf höflich.

Synopsis Song of Silver Lake, vol. 2, book 2 Fiddle Girl Demonstrating a giftedness in violin, Grace discussed with her Harvard educated friend, blind Derry London, the feasibility of attending an elite institution like Julliard School of Music in New York. Derry promised to make a few phone calls, which put her in contact with Mr. Carlton Astor, founder of Astor Plastics in Seattle, also a member of the Julliard board of regents. To Derry’s surprise, Mr. Astor seemed more interested in the blind woman’s 7 year old niece, Ruth, than he was in Grace, the prospective Julliard student. He even insisted on flying to Silver Lake in his private aircraft to take Derry and Ruth to dinner. What could possibly be Carlton Astor’s interest in little Ruth? While Derry researched Julliard School of Music, Grace was invited to tour with the McCoy family, a local amateur bluegrass group. The Real McCoy’s annually closed up their Silver Lake mechanics shop to make a month long circuit to county fairs across several states. Grace, first chair in her high school orchestra, but a novice to the Bluegrass fiddle, was shocked when Pop McCoy entered her in the Lexington, Kentucky Bluegrass competition. Loyalties between the fiddle girl and The Real McCoy’s were tested as bizarre events unfolded during this month long trip.
