Summary

This first literary collection from the Nobel Prize–winning author of The Sun Also Rises contains some of his earliest work.Three Stories and Ten Poems was originally published in a small print run in Paris in 1923. Of this collection’s three stories, two are all that remained after a suitcase containing his manuscripts was stolen in the Gare de Lyon, while the third was written the previous year in Italy. Their tight, economical prose is typical of Hemingway’s style. Each story explores themes found in the author’s later work, like masculinity and finding solace in alcohol, sports, and the outdoors. In “Up in Michigan,” a small-town waitress finds herself falling for the new man who has just bought the local smithy. In “Out of Season,” an American ex-pat living in northern Italy takes his wife on a fishing trip. And in “My Old Man,” the son of a jockey comes of age in the world of European horse racing. This collection also features ten poems, such as “Champs d’Honneur,” “Montparnasse,” and “Along with Youth.”
Available since: 01/01/2022.

    In this stunning biography, Josette Baer re-traces the eventful life of the Slovak politician Vavro Srobár, the principal figure in the implementation of Czechoslovak democracy in Slovakia. Spanning from his student days and his fight for Slovak civil rights in Upper Hungary via his ministerial positions during the First Czechoslovak Republic to his active resistance against German fascism, Baer’s research paints a most comprehensive picture.
    
    Based on rich archive material available to the English-reading public for the first time, Baer shows how Srobár’s political thought and activities shaped the turbulent history of Czechoslovakia in the first half of the 20th century. Offering unique insights into the political past of a country whose history remains largely under-researched, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the region.

    The Visioning, Susan Glaspell's second novel, tells about Katie Jones, a young woman who lives in the comfortable world she knows with a charming circle of friends. Her brother is an army officer, and her uncle lives in Washington. The world she knows is the world they let her see. Until Anne comes into the picture. Katie saves Anne from killing herself. Katie invents a story about Anne, a story which suits Katie's world, but what would she do, and feel, when she discovers the truth? The story focuses around Katie's eye opening experiences and her search for place and meaning in the new world she slowly discovers. Glaspell's usual charm and witty observation, this book is a wonderful read. It could also be of interest to fans of Virginia Woolf's Night And Day."  - Summary by Stav Nisser

    By the creators of Criminology: a complete chronicle of the Zodiac serial killer investigation, including photographs and documents.   In the late 60’s and early 70’s, an enigmatic serial killer terrorized the San Francisco Bay area—and teased the police tasked with stopping him. Through bold letters and cryptic ciphers mailed to local newspapers as well as taunting calls to police, the Zodiac left his mark on the state of California. Without warning he was gone, but not before achieving infamy in the annals of true crime history. Just who was the Zodiac Killer? In the first season of their popular podcast Criminology, Michael Morford and Mike Ferguson take a deep dive into one of true crime’s most notorious cold cases. Using actual case files, documents, and police reports they present a detailed chronicle of this mysterious investigation. In this volume, Morford and Ferguson bring the series to readers with added commentary, photographs, and documents.

    Punching Nazis - And Other Good...

    The stand-up comedian shares humorous stories as he reflects on his past in the punk rock scene amongst progressives and bigots. 
     
    Keith Lowell Jensen thinks you should punch Nazis. In this collection of essays, stories, interviews, and rants, he tells us why. 
     
    Jensen grew up and into the Sacramento punk music scene in the late eighties and early nineties, where weirdos, LGBTQ folk, feminists, and allies strived to carve out safe community spaces. This scene also attracted a different kind of outsider—white supremacists and Nazi skinheads—making for a politically charged and complicated landscape. In Punching Nazis, he reflects on his experiences with these racist fringe groups that infiltrated the progressive scene that gave rise to bands like Green Day. From unwittingly driving around in a lowrider with a gang called “The Suicidals,” to a night doing stand-up with a clown with an unwanted Swastika tattoo, Jensen brings his brand of subtle, sincere comedy to reflect on the complicated relationship that punk music has with racist skinheads and what we should do about it. 
     
    In recent times, Americans are surprised to find groups like the Klan, and more recently the “Racial Realists” and the “Alt-Right,” are still prominent, and now as they grow increasingly emboldened, it’s intriguing and valuable to hear tales of those who, through the love of punk rock music, have a history of dealing with racist fringe groups. 
     
    “Lowell's subtle humor shines through his meandering storytelling style. And at the same time, he reminds us that the streak of emboldened racist groups in our current political climate isn’t new—punks have been punching Nazis for decades.” —East Bay Express, “Your Summer Reading List” 
     
    “[Punching Nazis] is a unique portal into America’s white supremacy problem, specifically the country’s short-term memory, and it’s done with a lot of humor.” —Sacramento News and Review
