Summary

Excerpt:
"Life is a vexatious trap; when a thinking man reaches maturity and attains to full consciousness he cannot help feeling that he is in a trap from which there is no escape."Ward No. Six (1892)
Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian physician, dramaturge and author who is often referred to as one of the seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theatre. He made no apologies for the difficulties he posed to the readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them.

    “A dazzling portrait of a Midwestern city whose relationships among socio-economics, religion, civil rights, and class are consistently complex” (Kirkus). St. Louis is a fragmented place. It’s physically dissected by rivers, highways, walls, and fences, but it’s also a place where one’s race, class, religion, and zip code may as well be cards in a rigged poker game, where the losers face a dramatically shorter life expectancy. But despite these many divisions, St. Louis can also be a city of warmth, love, and beauty―especially in its contrasts. This collection features nearly seventy essays penned by St. Louis writers, journalists, clerics, poets, and activists including Aisha Sultan, Galen Gritts, Vivian Gibson, Maja Sadikovic, Nartana Premachandra, Sophia Benoit, Robert Langellier, Samuel Autman, Umar Lee, and more. Here you’ll learn about:  The rent strike of 1969  Religious life in Pruitt-Igoe public housing  Protest art in Ferguson  Segregation in the Vandeventer neighborhood  A church closing in Kinloch  And much more.

    Many childhood summers, Mark Woods piled into a station wagon with his parents and two sisters and headed to America's national parks. Mark's most vivid childhood memories are set against a backdrop of mountains, woods, and fireflies in places like Redwood, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon national parks.On the eve of turning fifty and a little burned out, Mark decided to reconnect with the great outdoors. He'd spend a year visiting the national parks. He planned to take his mother to a park she'd not yet visited and to re-create his childhood trips with his wife and their iPad-generation daughter.But then the unthinkable happened: his mother was diagnosed with cancer, given just months to live. Mark had initially intended to write a book about the future of the national parks, but Lassoing the Sun grew into something more: a book about family, the parks, the legacies we inherit, and the ones we leave behind.

    Journey to a Revolution - A...

    The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was perhaps the most dramatic single event of the Cold War and a major turning point in history. Though it ended unsuccessfully, the spontaneous uprising of Hungarians against their country's Communist party and the Soviet occupation forces in the wake of Stalin's death demonstrated to the world at large the failure of Communism. In full view of the Western media—and therefore the world—the Russians were obliged to use force on a vast scale to subdue armed students, factory workers, and intellectuals in the streets of a major European capital.In October 1956, Michael Korda and three fellow Oxford undergraduates traveled to Budapest in a beat-up Volkswagen to bring badly needed medicine to the hospitals—and to participate, at street level, in one of the great battles of the postwar era. Journey to a Revolution is at once history and a compelling memoir—the author's riveting account of the course of the revolution, from its heroic beginnings to the sad martyrdom of its end.

    A mother's triumphant journey from darkness to light after suffering a traumatic loss. Behind the Face "is a heart-wrenching story that will inspire you as Toranj Irani embarks on her path toward healing. 
    Toranj allows the reader insight into her journey from wondering why her life included so much suffering and why she was being punished to the realization that not everything is happening to you and into the knowing that things are always happening for you. With this new awareness, she was able to move from bitter to joyful. Toranj then went on to develop a connection with her daughter-although no longer in physical form but is very much a part of her everyday life which includes 'out of the blue' magical surprises. 
    This is a powerful story of her awakening and transformation."

    'This is why I love bizarro. Books like this, or is it a magazine? Doesn't really matter because the fact is any time you get something like this it's always a crap shoot. What makes or breaks these are the guys who put these things together and Cook and Kelso have assembled quite a collection of stories.
    'That's what makes issue 2 so good. The talent assembled here is not only impressive but the issue itself is more akin to a paperback. Not a clunker in the bunch and I can't wait to see issue 3.' –Michael Allen Rose

    "This memoir's reward is insights shared by a man honest with himself and his strengths and limitations in a way that is compelling, actually quietly fascinating." -- Jay Levin, Founder of LA Weekly newspaper 
    Having it all can leave you with nothing.  
    At the height of the Dot-com Boom on Wall St., Matthew Spaur used his earnings from the tech industry to remarry, become a stepparent to three boys, and start a weekly newspaper--all at the same time. Overnight, he became a self-employed working parent with a new business in a cutthroat market. He did this despite having never owned a business, worked on a newspaper, taken a journalism class, sold advertising, or been a parent.  
    Soon, the tech stock bubble burst, the 9/11 attacks exploded, and the country slid into recession and then war. Media outlets started receiving envelopes of anthrax in their mail. The internet revolution began to obliterate the newspaper industry. At home, his new wife and two of his step-sons developed life-threatening illnesses.  
    What do you do when your fortune goes from bad to worse?
