    When Arthur Clennam returns to England after many years abroad, he takes a kindly interest in Amy Dorrit, his mother's seamstress, and in the affairs of Amy's father, William Dorrit, a man of shabby grandeur, long imprisoned for debt in Marshalsea prison. As Arthur soon discovers, the dark shadow of the prison stretches far beyond its walls to affect the lives of many, from the kindly Mr Panks, the reluctant rent-collector of Bleeding Heart Yard, and the tipsily garrulous Flora Finching, to Merdle, an unscrupulous financier, and the bureaucratic Barnacles in the Circumlocution Office. A masterly evocation of the state and psychology of imprisonment, Little Dorrit is one of the supreme works of Dickens's maturity.

    A darkly comic, fiercely tragic, and strikingly original odyssey into contemporary American life by “the Jimi Hendrix of American short fiction” (Interview).   The thirteen masterful tales in this collection by the award-winning author of Airships and Bats Out of Hell explore lost moments in time with intensity, emotion, and an eye to the past. In “Uncle High Lonesome,” a young man recalls an uncle’s drinking binges and the rage unleashed, hinting at dark waters of distress. Fishing is transformed into a life-altering, almost mystical event in “A Creature in the Bay of St. Louis.” And in “Snerd and Niggero,” a deep friendship between two men is inspired by the loss of a woman they both loved. Viewed through memory and time’s distance, Barry Hannah’s characters are brightly illuminated figures from a lost time, whose occasionally bleak lives are still uncommonly true.   “Barry Hannah’s writing is raw and exhilarating, tortured, radiant, vicious, aggressive, funny, and streaked with rage, pain and bright poetic truth.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer on Airships

    London, 1944.  Seemingly far from the war in Europe, two schoolboys find they have much more pressing concerns than the fighting on the front-line. Melchior rekindles a passionate love affair with an old flame, but beneath his confident, roguish exterior lies a young boy who finds himself out of his depth.  What starts as a romantic chapter in their young lives soon takes a violent turn with disastrous consequences that threaten to tear them apart. For Mortiz however, girls are the last thing he wants to think about.  But he cant ignore his natural desires for much longer, especially with the new crowd Melchior introduces him to.  And with the expectations of a demanding father on top of the ever-increasing piles of homework, Moritz finds himself struggling to cope with the amounting pressure, and soon becomes to much to bare… Springs Awakening is a story of youth and innocence, and the awakening we all experience one day.  It explores the power of friendship and lust, and the role of society in dealing with these childhood traumas.
