Book Description :

“The Seventeen Traditions brings us back to what’s important in life—and what makes America truly great.” —Jim Hightower, Illinois Times The activist, humanitarian, and former presidential candidate named one of the 100 most influential figures in American history by The Atlantic—one of only three living Americans so honored—Ralph Nader, looks back at his small-town Connecticut childhood and the traditions and values that shaped his progressive worldview. At once eye-opening, thought-provoking, and surprisingly fresh and moving, Nader’s The Seventeen Traditions is a celebration of uniquely American ethics certain to appeal to fans of Mitch Albom, Tim Russert, and Anna Quindlen—an unexpected and most welcome gift from this fearlessly committed reformer and outspoken critic of corruption in government and society. In a time of widespread national dissatisfaction and disillusionment that has given rise to new dissent characterized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, the liberal icon shows us how every American can learn from The Seventeen Traditions and, by embracing them, help bring about meaningful and necessary change.

An American Childhood is the electrifying memoir of the wide-eyed and unconventional upbringing that influenced the lifetime love of nature and the stunning writing career of Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Dillard. From her mother's boundless energy to her father's low-budget horror movies, jokes and lonesome river trips down to New Orleans to get away, the events of Dillard's 1950s Pittsburgh childhood loom larger than life. An American Childhood fizzes with the playful observations and sparkling prose of this American master, illuminating the seemingly ordinary and yet always thrilling, dizzying moments of a childhood and adolescence lived fearlessly.

“People who grow up like this tend to become agoraphobics, serial killers, or really funny writers. Mulgrew, I think – hope? – is the last of these three things. His stories of childhood made me laugh out loud.” — Rob McElhenney, star, creator, and producer of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia “The somewhat alarming, always interesting world inside Jason’s brain has now been strewn across the pages of a book. Godspeed, reader.” — Steve Hely, author of How I Became a Famous Novelist Jason Mulgrew’s wildly popular blog “Everything Is Wrong With Me: 30, Bipolar and Hungry,” gives rise to a memoir of startling insight, comedy, and irreversible, unconscionable stupidity.

Book Description :

The poems in After the War Was Over depict a boy's childhood in post-World War II America. Focusing on everyday events, the author creates a world lived through the perceptions, observations and remembrances of a child. Holidays, family members, pets, food, toys, world events, death, books and movies Incidents, relationships and experiences both mundane and profound are portrayed in a way that defines both the child and the era in which he was growing up.Several poems also explore the nature of these events as they are recollected in maturity, where they have become part of the fabric of an entire life. Memory thus serves to give new meaning to the adult the boy has become, as well as providing ongoing joy in the act of remembering.Readers of a certain age will identify with the world of a child growing up in the 1940s. Readers of all ages will relate to the inner life of the narrator as he experiences life as it was and as he remembers it.

Book Description :

For a small boy with a big imagination, Ionia is a place of wonders. Its woods are enchanted, its houses full of treasure—crystal balls, flying carpets, magic potions. As time goes by, however, Patrick begins to wonder if what goes on in his own house is normal. Life at home has been deteriorating ever since his mother married George, a factory roustabout with a terrifying temper. To protect himself from his stepfather's violence, Patrick must remain hyper vigilant. Then his mother starts working the night shift, leaving George in charge . . .This complex tale of a Michigan boyhood illuminates a subject of universal concern: the shocking number of American men—an estimated one in six—who have been sexually abused as children. Author Patrick Husted digs deep into his own past to reveal how such abuse can occur and how it can affect a male victim well into adulthood. Told with devastating candor and doses of humor, his story offers hope to millions of men and their loved ones. (“An anatomy of survival, which could prove vital to those marked by sexual abuse.” —Kirkus Reviews)

Book Description :

In this collection of fourteen essays, Anne Scott MacLeod locates and describes shifts in the American concept of childhood as those changes are suggested in nearly two centuries of children's stories. Most of the essays concern domestic novels for children or adolescents--stories set more or less in the time of their publication. Some essays also draw creatively on childhood memoirs, travel writings that contain foreigners' observations of American children, and other studies of children's literature. The topics on which MacLeod writes range from the current politicized marketplace for children's books, to the reestablishment (and reconfiguration) of the family in recent children's fiction, to the ways that literature challenges or enforces the idealization of children. MacLeod sometimes considers a single author's canon, as when she discusses the feminism of the Nancy Drew mystery series or the Orwellian vision of Robert Cormier. At other times, she looks at a variety of works within a particular period, for example, Jacksonian America, the post-World War II decade, or the 1970s. MacLeod also examines books that were once immensely popular but currently have no appreciable readership--the Horatio Alger stories, for example--and finds fresh, intriguing ways to view the work of such well-known writers as Louisa May Alcott, Beverly Cleary, and Paul Zindel.

"For nonwriters, it is a glimpse into the trials and satisfactions of a life spent with words.
