I Sing the Body Electric

by Ray Bradbury

In these eighteen stories, Bradbury conducts the reader on a tour through time and space--into the unbounded dimensions of the future, and through remapped patterns of the past--as he intermingles the bizarre with the familiar and brings tomorrow and yesterday closer to today. In Bradbury's world, mechanical grandmothers, fourth-dimensional babies, and humanoid national heroes co-exist with the Irish Republican Army, Texas chicken farmers, and "the only A-l first-class taxidermist on the Coast."And just as diverse is Bradbury's range of voices and styles. Here are stories of suspense, humor, life--as well as of fable, science fiction (the extraordinary novella, "The Lost City of Mars"), and the beautiful cantata for words, "Christus Apollo." All in all, a virtuoso performance from the Master.

I Sing the Body Politic

by Peter Swirski

Offering a detailed and devastating critique of the political order dominated by the military-industrial-congressional complex and the conservative wing of the Republican Party, I Sing the Body Politic comments on an array of social inequalities and compromised political ideals, as well as artistic resistance and large-scale movements for sociopolitical change.

I Still Miss My Man But My Aim Is Getting Better

by Shankman

In her witty, southern-fried suspense novels, Sarah Shankman delivers nonstop action with a hilarious bite. Now she sends her acclaimed, irreverent heroine -- New Orleans writer Samantha Adams -- to a southwestern New Age hot spot, to unearth a secret past that was supposed to be six feet under. My dearest Sugar. I must see you. It's urgent. I need your help. The letter that arrived from Sam's mother was postmarked Santa Fe, penned in her mother's handwriting, and disclosed details only Johanna Adams could know. There was just one catch: Johanna Adams had been dead for thirty-four years. The mind-blowing missive could have been an entry from Sam's latest book of bizarre anecdotes, American Weird -- or an elaborate hoax. Either way, it instantly rekindled Sam's impossible wish that her mother hadn't really died in a plane crash when Sam was a child. Fueled by her journalistic instincts -- and a daughter's need for closure -- Sam touches down among Santa Fe's tourists and crystal gazers, jewelry shops and fast-food stands. But only when she summons the courage to knock on the door of Room 409 at the La Fonda Hotel does her surreal, mother-seeking adventure take off with no turning back.

I Think I'm Outta Here-A Memoir of All My Families

by Carroll O'Connor

Ztime, O'Connor writes eloquently and iterrible tragedies-and a career that has been immortalized in television history. Growing up in Depression-era New York, Carroll O'Connor made his way armed with the quick wit, mischievous bent of mind, and engaging Irish charm that flow through these pages. From his rough-and-tumble days in the merchant marine during World War II-marked by big dreams, bar brawls, and bloody noses-he moved on to salad days in Dublin. There he received an education in literature and in life, found his true calling in the theatre, and married his wife, Nancy...a fifty-year success story that's still going strong. O'Connor was soon invited to Hollywood, the scene of his greatest achievements. His unique perspective on the creation of All in the Family- and his certainty at the start that it was destined for ratings disaster-reveals television history in the making. And O'Connor vividly recalls scores of classic; moments with Norman Lear, Rob Reiner and Jean Stapleton, as well as numerous other colleagues, including Howard Rollins (In the Heat of the Night), Clint Eastwood (Kelly's Heroes), and Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor (Cleopatra). But Hollywood was also the source of O'Connor's most painful memory: the cocaine addiction and suicide of his son, Hugh. As a grieving father, O'Connor was forced to assume the most poignant and powerful role of his life, and he speaks honestly here about both his loss and his efforts to educate others about the horror of drug abuse. Candid and insightful, spirited and funny, this is the story of all the families Carroll O'Connor has been able to call his own. And in a career graced with landmark achievements, I THINK I'M OUTTA HERE stands as one of the most moving and memorable of all.

I Used to Know That: Civil War

by Fred Dubose

As the 150th anniversary of the Civil War approaches, the fascination with all things Civil War continues ever more strongly. With I Used to Know That: Civil War, snippets of history class will come rushing back as you recall that: The mere election of Abraham Lincoln pushed seven Southern states to secede. Distinguished soldier and military strategist Robert E. Lee was offered command of the U.S. Army two days before he was chosen to lead the rebel army of Northern Virginia. Elizabeth Van Lew, a wealthy spinster who lived in the Confederate capital, feigned craziness to mask her activities as one of the Union's most effective spies. Robert Smalls, a slave, absconded with a Confederate ship, went on to pilot ships for the Union Navy, and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives after the war. Author Fred DuBose takes you beyond the history book and in a lively style brings to life colorful stories that include heroes, brilliant military strategists, blunderers, spies, wives on the home front, Underground Railroad facilitators, surgeons, and journalists who took the highs and lows of the war to the public.
