What would cause a man to leave his sheltered and conservative home in the rural South to move to the hippie-infested left coast of Canada? A woman, obviously. In his second comic memoir, Nathan realizes that although he could make a homemade grenade as a ten-year-old, he is ill-equipped to handle a personal hygiene debate with cannibals, nude strippers on horseback, giant-scrotumed men in loincloths, or hippies who aggressively try to stick coffee up his rectum for no apparent reason. Follow Nathan's offbeat and absurd musings as he struggles to make sense of the world outside of Bremen, Georgia. Winner of the Bronze Medal for Humor at the 2017 IPPY Awards.

This is a memoir of enduring love, family, faith-and challenges. Sheila believes fate brings Barry and her together. The fairy tale of falling in love and marrying as teenagers in the Groovy Sixties are only the first steps of their journey. Of course, the busybodies in their small Southern town wait for time to tell if there's a bun in the oven and give them a snowball's chance in hell of making it. The odds are definitely against the young couple. Despite the odds and the problems inherent in most any marriage, Barry and Sheila are blessed with true love-a love the gossipmongers underestimate. Days tumble like dime store dominoes into years, and their love withstands the test of time. Barry and Sheila's story seems to have the necessary elements for a happily-ever-after ending: a devoted marriage, two healthy (albeit rambunctious) sons, and shared dreams. Life is gentle with them until their path takes an unwelcome detour. Cancer is supposed to happen to other people, and they are blindsided by the devastating diagnosis. The interloper brings with it a harsh new reality for both of them. Will their love and their faith be enough to, once again, beat the odds?

Excerpt: ...of sins. New England is culpable for permitting Parker and Beecher to stir up civil discord and domestic broils from the pulpit. These men deserve punishment, for they have instigated and occasioned a thousand murders in Kansas; yet they did nothing more than carry into practice the right of private judgment, liberty of speech, freedom of the press and of religion. These boasted privileges have become far more dangerous to the lives, the property and the peace of the people of this Union, than all the robbers and murderers and malefactors put together. The Reformation was but an effort of Nature

When Delaney Mossbacher knocks down a Mexican pedestrian, he neither reports the accident nor takes his victim to hospital. Instead the man accepts $20 and limps back to poverty and his pregnant 17-year-old wife, leaving Delaney to return to his privileged life in California. But these two men are fated against each other, as Delaney attempts to clear the land of the illegal immigrants who he thinks are turning his state park into a ghetto, and a boiling pot of racism and prejudice threatens to spill over.

"This volume designates a shift within posthumanistic media studies, that dissolves the concept of media into a network of operations, that reproduce, process and reflect the distinctions that are fundamental for a given culture, e.g. the anthropological difference, the distinctions between natural object and cultural sign, noise and information, eye and gaze"--

This is my chance, then, to cast myself in the hero¿s role. I¿ve been a humble author and bookseller for all these years. (Allow me my hyperbole¿at least I¿m much humbled.) I don¿t run into tall buildings to save women and children while other¿s flee. (My knees have never been so strong, but it bears asking, do the women need the saving anymore?) My eyes are not good enough to fly jet planes or hit a fast ball. I sell old books and the few that are new that are worth the time, and write novels I cannot sell. And though the writing has been much ignored, it is a witness to what I do and what I¿ve done¿that is, for sixty-eight years I have done pretty much what suited me. And here, at last, is a chance to do what is arguably better if not best. The argument is not settled. That I have waited until now, when I have so little left to lose, may be some mitigation of your judgment of all this, I understand. Or that the overwhelming risk of failure at this point makes any effort too romantically futile (and possibly planned that way). That I should have done more to prevent what has finally come to pass might cast me into the lower ranks of Dante¿s hell, but at least I won¿t be letting a good collapse of Western Civilization go waste. There is a story here to be written, and if it transpires that there is no one left to read it, so be it. That is at least consistent with all else that I do. (The whine you hear is not self pity, but the wind in the gears.) I sally forth. My armor is the truth. I have a worthy truck for my steed. My companion is¿well, we¿ll work that out.
