♥ Book Title : Six Weeks Lucky
☯ Full Synopsis : "Rudi Kratschmer, youngest of eight sons, was brought up in a tiny forested village within walking distance of the borders of Sudetanland. As Hitler advanced, the self-contained farming lifestyle was ripped apart, causing 19-year-old Rudi to join the partisans to fight for his country; and he was soon fleeing for his life across Czechoslovakia and Poland. After arriving in England, he encountered more collaborators, but settled into the ways and language of his new home, using his engineering skills to help the war effort, becoming a highly respected design engineer in a wide range of industrial processes and developing a passion to pass on his knowledge. His work took him from Sheffield, Coventry and London across Europe and Africa, and throughout his life, it is the love of his homeland, his family and their well-being that has kept him going. This is a riveting story by--and about--a remarkable man."Article| JS Martin| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Nights on the Point
☯ Full Synopsis : "Nights on the Point is the story of three friends who light out for the territories because life is in the doing. Out on the road, Jack, Nikki, and Weston find power and magic they had never dreamed of. And gliding alongside unseen is the Bear – the first of their companions from the "other side." As the journey continues, the computer-generated world of the future collides with the timeless mythology of a land before language – interrupted periodically by whiskey, "reality burgers," fist fights with crazed carnies, Zen trances, and country songs. The two sides of consciousness move closer and closer until, out of gas in the desert, our three travelers come face-to-face with their other-world counterparts. The journey nearly ends forever in New Orleans with a poker game, an arrest for murder, and the disappearance of Nikki. Reunited on a stolen sailboat in Mobile Bay, the players embark on a final cruise down past Mile Zero to Key West. And it's happy ever after, right? Hot winds and heartbreaks, skinheads and shotguns write a different story as Jack and Weston face the inevitable end of their journey. But, is this really the end, or just the beginning of another journey? Will the circle be unbroken? Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye. There is no "there" ... there."Article| Roland Blair| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Forgetting the Alamo, Or, Blood Memory
☯ Full Synopsis : "This literary adventure takes place in nineteenth-century Texas and follows the story of a Tejana lesbian cowgirl after the fall of the Alamo. Micaela Campos, the central character, witnesses the violence against Mexicans, African Americans, and indigenous peoples after the infamous battles of the Alamo and of San Jacinto, both in 1836. Resisting an easy opposition between good versus evil and brown versus white characters, the novel also features Micaela's Mexican-Anglo cousin who assists and hinders her progress. Micaela's travels give us a new portrayal of the American West, populated by people of mixed races who are vexed by the collision of cultures and politics. Ultimately, Micaela's journey and her romance with a black/American Indian woman teach her that there are no easy solutions to the injustices that birthed the Texas Republic. This novel is an intervention in queer history and fiction with its love story between two women of color in mid-nineteenth-century Texas. Pérez also shows how a colonial past still haunts our nation's imagination. The battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto offered freedom and liberty to Texans, but what is often erased from the story is that common people who were Mexican, Indian, and Black did not necessarily benefit from the influx of so many Anglo immigrants to Texas. The social themes and identity issues that Pérez explores—political climate, debates over immigration, and historical revision of the American West—are current today."Article| Emma Pérez| Statement ..."
