Summary

Back in print after more than a decade, the singular chronicle of life at the forefront of antiracist activism, with a new introduction and afterword by the author  
"Mab Segrest's book is extraordinary. It is a 'political memoir' but its language is poetic and its tone passionate. I started it with caution and finished it with awe and pleasure."—Howard Zinn  
In 1994, Mab Segrest first explained how she “had become a woman haunted by the dead.” Against a backdrop of nine generations of her family’s history, Segrest explored her experiences in the 1980s as a white lesbian organizing against a virulent far-right movement in North Carolina.  
Memoir of a Race Traitor became a classic text of white antiracist practice. bell hooks called it a “courageous and daring [example of] the reality that political solidarity, forged in struggle, can exist across differences.” Adrienne Rich wrote that it was “a unique document and thoroughly fascinating.” Juxtaposing childhood memories with contemporary events, Segrest described her journey into the heart of her culture, finally veering from its trajectory of violence toward hope and renewal. Now, amid our current national crisis driven by an increasingly apocalyptic white supremacist movement, Segrest returns with an updated edition of her classic book. With a new introduction and afterword that explore what has transpired with the far right since its publication, the book brings us into the age of Trump—and to what can and must be done.  
Called “a true delight” and a “must-read” (Minnesota Review), Memoir of a Race Traitor is an inspiring and politically potent book. With brand-new power and relevance in 2019, this is a book that far transcends its genre.

    With ingenuity and luck, a wilderness mishap turns into a romantic adventure where love has room to bloom! 
    NOW ON AUDIO. Though he lives as an openly gay man in DC, Nick decides to revert to his closeted alter ego when he returns home to Colorado. Someday he’d come out to his family – in six months, maybe. Or six years. Now he steels himself to survive a back-country camping and hunting trip with his brother and friends. But Nick forgets he isn’t out East anymore when he kisses his hot skiing instructor just as his brother arrives! If the awkward silence on the drive up is bad, the constant stream of gay jokes by his brother’s friends is even worse. 
    Clay likes his skiing student a lot – enough to exchange phone numbers despite his sulking brother and the pile of hunting gear in the back of their truck. Nick is smart and funny and incredibly cute. Clay texts to invite him to dinner, only to find Nick is still out on the mountain and at the mercy of the elements. When a winter storm threatens, Clay resolves to rescue Nick personally. He thinks Nick is “the one” – but only if their new relationship survives the close quarters of a cozy snow cave. 
    BODY HEAT is a contemporary gay romance with a happy ending.

    It was hot. Too hot. This damned Phoenix heat was getting me down. And now that my own heat had come upon me, I needed relief.
    
     
    
    
     
    Taking a walk in the middle of the night to clear my head, I saw that a new nightclub had opened up near me.
    
     
    
    
     
    However, I didn’t expect to be the only omega in the place. The only one in heat, that is. Every alpha worth his salt hit on me. Just as I’d turn down one, another would take his place. It was a nightmare!
    
     
    
    
     
    But there was one alpha who left me alone. The one that didn’t chase me was the one I wanted. Badly. But would he be interested in me?
    
     
    
    
     
    Fate had surely brought us together…
    
     
    
    
     
    But before I knew it, he was gone.
