“What a terrific book. I loved its rich, recognizable characters, the intricacies and excitement of the plot, the beauty of the writing.” --Anne Lamott Reaching back to the Great Depression, and with all the insight, tenderness, and extraordinary narrative power that have been the hallmark of her writing, Alice Adams once again illuminates the workings of the human heart. When Harry and Cynthia Baird flee south from Connecticut to Pinehill, they hope to find a simpler, and cheaper, way of life, and a refuge from the burdens of their life in the North. What they find, in the small societies of a college town, each with its own intricate and beguiling etiquette is a deeper involvement in private scandals, long-held secrets, dangerous love affairs, dreams, desires, fears, betrayals.

A lyrical voice from the South weaves a searing psychological drama around a small town shocked by its first murder, hurtling a calm and complacent community into a harrowing realm of alienation and distrust. Essex, South Carolina, is a town where doors are never locked—until an elderly widow is murdered in her bed. Stoney McFarland and his wife Anna have returned to his hometown in hopes of rebuilding their connection. But Stoney’s obsession with the murder investigation, his efforts to restore the town, threaten deeply buried secrets other townspeople are desperate to suppress. From eerie voodoo rituals in the mist-shrouded swamps, to the Old South matriarch who fears a dead woman, to the Civil Rights activist searching for the mother who abandoned her, the town is soon fractured by the twin perils of public danger and private exposure. The story reaches a devastating climax when it becomes clear what some people will do to protect the place they love. A lushly atmospheric novel that confronts complex ideas about bigotry, love, and modern society.

What happens in Mexico stays in Mexico. Or does it? When twenty-eight-year-old restaurateur Nick Jensen and two friends fly from their hometown of Phoenix, to a small resort town in Mexico, they're expecting a few days of fun, sun, and sand - with some humanitarian house-building thrown in. After all, Nick had been to the same town once before, and had fallen in love with it. He had also fallen for a beautiful local named Gabriella, but she had quickly disappeared years earlier, shortly after she had appeared through an unlikely twist of fate. Once Nick and his pals land in Rocky Point, however, Nick's memories - good and bad - come crashing back like the Sea of Cortez surf. Those vivid memories of a summer trip almost seven years earlier - memories that had haunted him more than he had ever admitted to himself, and changed his life more than he ever could have imagined - confront him at every turn. As much as Nick pretends to his friends that it's all fun and games, when fate once more steps in, he learns this time, that what happens in Mexico "doesn't" stay in Mexico.

Practical New Thought: Several Things That Have Helped People is a collection of essays published in W.W. Atkinson's New Thought magazine, compiled into one useful text. It contains a rare Preface from the author, an apology of sorts-though he specifically says it is not-about the quality of the essays and his inability to polish them for republication because of his fondness for the original works. The essays selected are those that seemed to have the most effect on his readers, those which truly helped people in their daily lives. Practical New Thought contains 27 essays, including "The Keynote," "Aim Straight," "Partnership," "Let Us Have Faith," and "Get in Tune." American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932) was editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905 and editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books under numerous pseudonyms, including the name "Yogi," some of which are likely still unknown today.

Covering for the Bosses: Labor and the Southern Press probes the difficult relationship between the press and organized labor in the South from the past to the present day. Written by a veteran journalist and first-hand observer of the labor movement and its treatment in the region's newspapers and other media, the text focuses on the modern South that has evolved since World War II. In gathering materials for this book, Joseph B. Atkins crisscrossed the region, interviewing workers, managers, labor organizers, immigrants, activists, and journalists, and canvassing labor archives. Using individual events to reveal the broad picture, Covering for the Bosses is a personal journey by a textile worker's son who grew up in North Carolina, worked on tobacco farms and in textile plants as a young man, and went on to cover as a reporter many of the developments described in this book. Atkins details the fall of the once-dominant textile industry and the region's emergence as the "Sunbelt South." He explores the advent of "Detroit South" with the arrival of foreign automakers from Japan, Germany, and South Korea. And finally he relates the effects of the influx of millions of workers from Mexico and elsewhere. Covering for the Bosses shows how, with few exceptions, the press has been a key partner in the powerful alliance of business and political interests that keep the South the nation's least-unionized region. Joseph B. Atkins is a widely published journalist, professor of journalism at the University of Mississippi, and editor of The Mission: Journalism, Ethics, and the World. Stanley Aronowitz is professor of sociology and cultural studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He is the author, most recently, of Left Turn: Forging a New Political Future; The Knowledge Factory; and How Class Works.

What southerners do, where they go, and what they expect to accomplish in their spare time, their "leisure," reveals much about their cultural values, class and racial similarities and differences, and historical perspectives. This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture offers an authoritative and readable reference to the culture of sports and recreation in the American South, surveying the various activities in which southerners engage in their nonwork hours, as well as attitudes surrounding those activities. Seventy-four thematic essays explore activities from the familiar (porch sitting and fairs) to the essential (football and stock car racing) to the unusual (pool checkers and a sport called "fireballing"). In seventy-seven topical entries, contributors profile major sites associated with recreational activities (such as Dollywood, drive-ins, and the Appalachian Trail) and prominent sports figures (including Althea Gibson, Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, and Hank Aaron). Taken together, the entries provide an engaging look at the ways southerners relax, pass time, celebrate, let loose, and have fun.
