Award-winning Arab Australian poet Omar Sakr presents a pulsating collection of poetry that interrogates the bonds and borders of family, faith, queerness, and nationality.Visceral and energetic, Sakr’s poetry confronts the complicated notion of “belonging” when one’s family, culture, and country are at odds with one’s personal identity. Braiding together sexuality and divinity, conflict and redemption, The Lost Arabs is a fierce, urgent collection from a distinct new voice.

Volume 1 of Let George Do It! Before Johnny Dollar came along, radio favorite Bob Bailey was starred in an offbeat private-eye series entitled “Let George Do It”. As played by Bailey, George Valentine was an ex-cop-turned-private-investigator who eschewed muscle in favor of manual dexterity and analytical thinking skills. His friendly nemeses on the police force included Lieutenant Riley (Wally Maher) and Lieutenant Johnson (Ken Christy) and he also depended on his gal Friday, Claire Brooks (“Brooksie”), played first by Frances Robinson and later by Virginia Gregg. The twenty episodes in this collection, restored by Radio Archives, give you the chance to really hear what happens when you “Let George Do It”.

This third "stove-top" full of Alphabet Soups --again-- runs the fullest gamut! It ranges from country scenes (Alphabets of Fruits, Birds, Animals and "Country Scenes"), to just plain silliness (Absurd ABCs and Lear's Nonsense Alphabet #5), and finally, topical subjects (the Anti-Slavery Alphabet, the Alphabet of Celebrities --a list quite different when compared to our current crew-- and an Alphabet of Old Testament History). Have fun, and be sure to tune in for the fourth volume, which promises to break new ground in Alphabet Books! (Summary by Denny Sayers)
