"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."  "Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."  "We'll let our friends be the peacekeepers and the great country called America will be the pacemakers."  "It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it."  "I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."  "I do know I'm ready for the job [the presidency]. And if not, that's just the way it goes."

    Laurel and Hardy were a British-American comedy duo act during the early era of American cinema, consisting of Englishman Stan Laurel (1890–1965) and American Oliver Hardy (1892–1957). Starting their career as a duo in the silent film era, they later successfully transitioned to "talkies.” From the late 1920s to the mid-1950s, they were internationally famous for their slapstick comedy, with Laurel playing the clumsy, childlike friend to Hardy's pompous bully.

    The cheeky, larger-than-life drag queen and outrageous comic—""The Joan Rivers of the Drag World,"" (New York Times)—who isn’t afraid to shock or offend brings her trademark acerbic wit and sharp commentary to the page in an uproarious collection of advice. 
    When it comes to insult comics, Bianca Del Rio is in a class by herself. Fierce, funny, and fabulous—a would-be love child sired by John Waters and birthed by Joan Rivers—Bianca sandblasted her name in the annals of pop culture on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Thanks to her snarky frankness, impeccable comedic timing, and politically incorrect humor, she became the show’s breakout star, winning its sixth season. 
    In Blame It On Bianca Del Rio, Bianca shares her opinions loudly and proudly, offering raucous, hilarious, no-holds-barred commentary on the everyday annoyances, big and small, that color her world, and make it a living, albeit amusing, hell for anyone who inhabits it. A collection of biting advice filled from Bianca’s twisted universe, Blame It On Bianca Del Rio will shock you and keep you laughing. But be warned: it is not for the faint of heart!

    Nominated for the National Book Award, Barry Hannah’s brilliant debut offers “a fresh angle on the great American subject of growing up” (John Updike).    Roiling with love and torment, lunacy and desire, hilarity and tenderness, Geronimo Rex is the bildungsroman of an unlikely hero. Reared in gloomy Dream of Pines, Louisiana, whose pines have long since yielded to paper mills, Harry Monroe is ready to take on the world. Inspired by the great Geronimo’s heroic rampage through the Old West, Harry puts on knee boots and a scarf and voyages out into the swamp of adolescence in the South of the 1950s and ’60s. Along the way he is attacked by an unruly peacock; discovers women, rock ’n’ roll, and jazz; and stalks a pervert white supremacist who fancies himself the next Henry Miller in this “stunning piece of entertainment . . . vulgar, ribald, and wildly comic” (TheNew York Times).   “Hannah writes about adolescence with a rare pizzazz and insight.” —Rolling Stone
