Fifty-two essays exploring identity, literature, immigration, and politics by one of the godfathers of Chicano literature In his essay "The New World Man," Rudolfo Anaya writes, "I stand poised at the center of power, the knowing of myself, the heart and soul of the New World man alive in me."

Astride a Pink Horse: A Thriller

by Robert Greer

A murder in a deserted Wyoming missile silo stirs memories of Cold War fears in this thriller of intimate family secrets and military intrigue. It's been decades since the Cold War ended--and just as long since anyone has been in the long-abandoned Tango-11 nuclear missile site in southeastern Wyoming--when Thurmond Giles, a decorated African American US Air Force veteran and warhead expert, is found murdered, dangling naked by his ankles inside a deactivated Minuteman silo. OSI investigator and air force fighter pilot Major Bernadette Cameron is handling the security breach, but when her inquiries into the crime are stonewalled, she has to find out why. So does Elgin "Cozy" Coseia, a local reporter chasing a major story. But sifting through the victim's complex life and sordid death yields a wider assortment of suspects than they counted on--including a radical nuclear-arms protestor, an ambitious air force cadet, a right-wing cattle rancher with powerful political ties, and a family still shaken by memories of Japanese internment camps. To connect the past with the present, Bernadette and Cozy will have to follow an unforeseen path back to the dark days of World War II, through the legacy of the Cold War's paranoid atomic age, and to the present-day all-American heartland, where old wounds are never forgotten, nor forgiven. From the bestselling author of the C. J. Floyd series, Astride a Pink Horse is a mystery with a "refreshingly eccentric cast and elaborately structured plot. . . . Think Elmore Leonard, Brad Parks, and Craig Johnson." --Library Journal

The Charles Dickens Collection Volume One: Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, and Bleak House

by Charles Dickens

Three of Dickens’s most compelling orphan protagonists—Oliver Twist, Pip, and Esther Summerson—in three of his greatest novels. Perhaps no writer in the English language is more closely associated with orphaned characters than Charles Dickens. The trials and dangers for children without parental protection play a significant part in nearly all his work, as both a source of highly entertaining melodrama and pointed social criticism. Oliver Twist: Having endured deplorable conditions in an orphans’ workhouse, Oliver Twist eventually escapes to London, where he falls in with the Artful Dodger, one of a gang of young pickpockets led by the criminal Fagin. Dickens’s heartrending descriptions of institutional abuses as well as the brutal reality of life on London’s streets for homeless children argued strongly for social reform. Great Expectations: Dickens’s penultimate novel centers on the orphan Pip and his anonymous benefactor, whom he assumes is the wealthy and eccentric recluse Miss Havisham, and whose adopted daughter, the beautiful but emotionally distant Estella, he falls hopelessly in love with. John Irving called it “the most wonderful and most perfectly worked-out plot for a novel in the English language.” Bleak House: Dickens’s masterful satire of the English judicial system features his only female narrator, Esther Summerson, who is raised as an orphan. Esther’s true identity forms much of the mystery and drama of a complex novel involving an endless legal case—“the family curse”—and all the lives it affects. As an entertainer and a moralist, Dickens utilized his vulnerable young protagonists to great effect, creating some of the most unforgettable characters in the history of literature. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

An assistant district attorney with a burning hatred of organized crime, he'll do anything for a crack at the mob. He's about to get a chance to bring down the whole clan--but his loved ones' lives are at stake. The dealer they arrested is an unlucky gambler whose debts put him smack in the middle of two of New York's most powerful crime families. Following the man's lead, Michael sets up a massive eavesdropping operation intended to trap the ruthless new leader of the local mob--but what he hears on the other end of the wiretap will make him doubt everything he knows about his family, his wife, and himself. From the legendary Ed McBain, who "virtually invented the American police procedural with his gritty 87th Precinct series," Criminal Conversation is as realistic as it gets (The New York Times).

Across the Bridge: Stories (Bloomsbury Classic Ser.)

by Mavis Gallant

A New York Times Best Book of the Year: An arresting look at the way time can change familyOne of the greatest strengths of Mavis Gallant's writing is her ability to distill a character's emotions into a simple moment--a lingering glance or an unuttered word. Her flair for detail is everywhere in evidence in Across the Bridge, studies of Montreal and Paris over the last century. The primary focus of this story collection is the Carettes, a family of French Canadians who relocate to Paris before World War II. The two daughters, Marie and Berthe, could not be more different: Marie is traditional and quiet while Berthe is strong willed and open minded. But as they grow together, the two learn how much they truly have in common. Accompanying these stories of the Carettes are tales of growth and isolation at home and abroad, including one of a rebellious French-speaking Canadian girl growing up in the Anglophone area of the city. Another entry is focused on an anthropologist who, on a trip to a small country, finds a group of people who speak a language no one has ever heard before. Unfortunately, when he announces his discovery, no one believes him. Gallant's snapshots of life abroad create an indelible impression on her readers.

Less well known, though, is Price's lifelong love of animals, especially his fourteen-year-old mutt, Joe. From his wife's passion for poodles to film set encounters with all types of creatures, including goats, apes, and camels, Price's life was full of furry, four-legged friends. But it was Joe who truly captured his heart. Intelligent, courageous, and devoted to his owner, Joe was a special dog with a personality all his own. In this touching and light-hearted memoir, with a new introduction by Bill Hader and a preface by Vincent Price's daughter, Victoria, Joe gets involved in all sorts of hijinks: At one point, the actor has to defend his canine companion in court! Despite some bad habits, like stealing guests' shoes, pursuing lustful trysts with neighboring dogs, or belly flopping into the garden fishpond--crushing more than a few fish--Price loves his Joselito, whose unconditional loyalty more than makes up for his minor indiscretions. And when Price's elderly cousin who comes to stay with him is stricken with cancer, Joe never leaves her side. Price's tender and witty recollections of his time spent with Joe will bring joy to any animal lover's heart. The Vincent Price Family Legacy will donate a portion of the proceeds from this book to the Fund for Animals.

The Kennedy Imprisonment: A Meditation on Power

by Garry Wills

With a new preface: An “irreverent [and] entertaining” portrait of JFK, the Camelot mystique, and the politics of charisma (The Christian Science Monitor). Described by the New York Times as “a sort of intellectual outlaw,” Garry Wills takes on the romantic myths surrounding the Kennedy clan in this thought-provoking examination of electoral politics and the power of image in America. Wills argues that the much-admired dynasty, beginning with patriarch Joe Kennedy, created a corrupt climate where appearances were more important than reality, truth was discarded when it wasn’t convenient, and an assortment of devoted loyalists sacrificed integrity for the sake of reflected glory. Touching upon topics ranging from the manipulation of the PT-109 story in the media to the authorship of Profiles in Courage to the handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis to persistent rumors of extramarital affairs, Wills offers a persuasive look not only at President John F. Kennedy and his brothers Robert and Edward, but also at the bubble that existed around them and lured in some of the best and brightest of the era. From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Lincoln at Gettysburg and Why I Am a Catholic, The Kennedy Imprisonment is “a brilliant and troubling study of the Kennedy era in American politics” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
