Like Water from the Author: Crystal M.. “Momma is like water. You know how you see rocks in a stream or a river, and over time, before you know it, the water has worn the rock down so that it can make its way where it wants to go?

But the lessons her mother gave them, sometimes uncompromisingly harsh, has saved her and made her hardy, capable to weather all the bad things that came her way.

Sexual Revolutions In Cuba from the Author: Carrie Hamilton. In Sexual Revolutions in Cuba Carrie Hamilton delves into the relationship between passion and politics in revolutionary Cuba to present a comprehensive history of sexuality on the island from the triumph of the Revolution in 1959 into the twenty-first century. Drawing on an unused body of oral history interviews as well as press accounts, literary works, and other published sources, Hamilton pushes beyond official government rhetoric and explores how the wider changes initiated by the Revolution have affected the sexual lives of Cuban citizens. She foregrounds the memories and emotions of ordinary Cubans and compares these experiences with changing policies and wider social, political, and economic developments to reveal the complex dynamic between sexual desire and repression in revolutionary Cuba. Showing how revolutionary and prerevolutionary values coexist in a potent and sometimes contradictory mix, Hamilton addresses changing patterns in heterosexual relations, competing views of masculinity and femininity, same-sex relationships and homophobia, AIDS, sexual violence, interracial relationships, and sexual tourism. Hamilton's examination of sexual experiences across generations and social groups demonstrates that sexual politics have been integral to the construction of a new revolutionary Cuban society.

On A Wave from the Author: Thad Ziolkowski. In this prizewinning poet's wry and exhilarating coming-of-age story, Thad Ziolkowski's On a Wave poignantly looks back at adolescence in a memoir of his surfing years. As a disenchanted, unemployed English professor, Thad decides one day to sneak away from his temp job in Manhattan and catch a wave off a dingy Queens shoreline. In the meager cold waves, he contemplates how he could have possibly become a semidepressed, chain-smoking, aimless man when for a few shining years of his boyhood, he was invincible. His lapsed love affair with the ocean begins amid the late-sixties counterculture in coastal Florida. After his parents' divorce, nine-year-old Thad escapes from his difficult family -- notably a new brooding and explosive stepfather -- by heading for the thrilling, uncharted waters of the local beach. In the embrace of the surf, he is able to stay offshore for years, until his life is upended once again, this time by a double tragedy that deposits him at a crossroads between a life in the waves and a life on land. Lyrical and disarmingly funny, On a Wave is a glorious portrait of youth that reminds readers of Tobias Wolff's This Boy's Life and Frank Conroy's Stop-Time.

What I Tell You In The Dark A Novel from the Author: John Samuel. A business executive with damaging secrets about his company, driven to bring the truth to light, finds his actions have unexpected and mortal consequences in this daringly original debut novel about what it means to be human A nameless angel has been out of God’s favor since things went wrong with his last mission, 2,000 years ago. He has spent the intervening millennia watching the humanity he so loves fall into moral disrepair. Lately, he's been watching Will, a businessman attempting to expose his company's dark dealings to the press. Will's campaign is not going well. In a moment of weakness and bravado, the angel decides to take over Will--"jumping in" as he did over two millennia ago. What follows is a mortal struggle between good and evil, as cosmic forces fight to maintain the status quo. As Will begins to lose his grip on himself and his mission, the reader is forced to question whose reckoning this is: Are these the delusions of a man crushed by the hypocrisies of modern society? Or the actions of an angel desperate to right our wrongs? Powerfully written, fast paced, and perfect for fans of Chuck Palahniuk, Joe Hill, and Bret Easton Ellis, What I Tell You in the Dark is an unsettling story of omnipotence, mayhem, capitalism, and corruption—a violet struggle between intentions and their consequences played out on a grand scale.
