Miss Grief And Other Stories from the Author: Constance Fenimore Woolson. To celebrate her forthcoming biography of Constance Fenimore Woolson, Anne Boyd Rioux has selected the best of this classic writer’s stories. Constance Fenimore Woolson (1840–1894) was one of the few nineteenth-century women writers considered the equal of her male peers. Harper & Brothers was so enamored of her work that the firm agreed to publish whatever she could write. In this gathering, Rioux has chosen fiction over the course of Woolson’s life, including “In Sloane Street,” never published since it first appeared in Harper’s Bazaar. Woolson’s stories travel from the rural Midwest to the deep South and then across the Atlantic to Italy and England. Her strong characters and indelible settings provide continuity throughout this collection as do her concerns with passion, creativity, imagination, and the demands of society. Whether portraying the keeper of a Union soldiers’ cemetery in the defeated South, a woman writer whose genius goes unrecognized, or the ex-pat denizens of Florence, Woolson’s deft characterization and subtlety create a broad landscape of Americans and their ways no matter where they lived.

Adventures In Solitude from the Author: Grant Lawrence. From Captain George Vancouver to Muriel “Curve of Time” Blanchet to Jim “Spilsbury’s Coast” Spilsbury, visitors to Desolation Sound have left behind a trail of books endowing the area with a romantic aura that helps to make it British Columbia’s most popular marine park. In this hilarious and captivating book, CBC personality Grant Lawrence adds a whole new chapter to the saga of this storied piece of BC coastline. Young Grant’s father bought a piece of land next to the park in the 1970s, just in time to encounter the gun-toting cougar lady, left-over hippies, outlaw bikers and an assortment of other characters. In those years Desolation Sound was a place where going to the neighbours’ potluck meant being met with hugs from portly naked hippies and where Russell the Hermit’s school of life (boating, fishing, and rock ’n’ roll) was Grant’s personal Enlightenment—an influence that would take him away from the coast to a life of music and journalism and eventually back again. With rock band buddies and a few cases of beer in tow, an older, cooler Grant returns to regale us with tales of “going bush,” the tempting dilemma of finding an unguarded grow-op, and his awkward struggle to convince a couple of visiting kayakers that he’s a legit CBC radio host while sporting a wild beard and body wounds and gesticulating with a machete. With plenty of laugh-out-loud humour and inspired reverence, Adventures in Solitude delights us with the unique history of a place and the growth of a young man amidst the magic of Desolation Sound.

Binewskis Verfall Einer Radioaktiven Familie from the Author: Katherine Dunn. Arturo, der Fischjunge, ist der Star des Familienzirkus. Sein rhetorisches Talent begeistert die Zuschauer so sehr, dass sie ihn wie einen Gott verehren und alles geben würden, um zu werden wie er. Am meisten aber liebt ihn seine Schwester Olympia, sie steht auch dann noch zu ihm, als er die siamesischen Zwillinge gegeneinander aufbringt, als er skrupellos die magischen Fähigkeiten des Nesthäkchens Chick für seine Zwecke missbraucht. Es ist Olympia, die buckelige Albino-Zwergin, die uns von ihrer Familie erzählt, von ihren Eltern, die sich durch unfassbare Experimente eine genetisch mutierte Freakshow heranzüchten. Sie berichtet von Geschwisterliebe und -konkurrenz, vom Kampf um Anerkennung in einer Welt des Über-Besonderen. Als Arturo in seinem Größenwahn kaum mehr zu halten ist, entwickelt sich ein dramatisches Spiel zwischen fanatischer Hingabe und mörderischer Abscheu. Dutzende wunderlich-bezaubernde Figuren hinterfragen unsere Vorstellung von „Selbst“ und dem „Anderen“, normal und unnormal, Perfektion und Deformation. Was ist Schönheit? Und was ist die moderne Familie wert?
