A moving, lyrical, eye-opening look at the true nature of intimacy among men. The L.A. riots had an indelible effect upon the city of Los Angeles, upon the wider debate in this country about race, and especially -- in the pages of this wonderful memoir -- on ten weekend basketball players. After the riots, and once he'd fled his mid-city home for the relative safety of suburban Santa Monica, Alan Eisenstock at last found himself with a driveway that was big enough for a weekly basketball game. For years he'd yearned for this; now all that stood between him and the zone defense was the fruits of the carob tree that fell on the driveway and threatened to ruin the game. Once the surface was clear, however, Sundays were given over to a raucous, competitive, and hilarious series of ball games. But what began as a recreation soon became a chance to shatter the Boy Code once and for all. So here they are: doctors, lawyers, writers, construction guys -- some single, some married -- all, however, committed to the game they're playing, and to the deepening of friendships the time together engenders. Along the way there's a fight and a falling-out; the tragic death of one of the guys' wives; a trip to Mexico that's right out of a buddy movie, except that these early-middle-aged men end up in bed by 9:30 P.M.; a laugh-out-loud karaoke session that has to be read to be believed; and more bagels than any book should ever be able to bear. Holding it all together is Alan Eisenstock himself. His own personal journey from unhappy, stressed-out screenwriter to full-fledged, fulfilled book writer is the story of a man risking his financial and emotional life in order to follow his heart. And what begins as a weekly ritual of game-playing becomes, over five years, a meaningful exchange on marital issues, money worries, and the onset of various midlife crises. The result is a lovely, whimsical, and hilarious book about guys and what they talk about when their better halves are not around.

Certainly an interesting and thought provoking novel.

Action packed and authentic, Charley Sunday's Texas Outfit is a vivid portrait of the men whose true grit left its mark on the American West. Charley Sunday. Bloody Sunday. In the lawless frontier town of Brownsville, Texas, a boy and his parents ride a carriage down a crowded street—when a kill crazy band of kidnappers strike suddenly. Now, to rescue his family, veteran rancher Charley Sunday cobbles together a ragtag posse that starts with an outlaw and an Indian—and picks up recruits, weapons, and a lot of trouble all the way down into Mexico. Because his grandson has escaped, Charley and his loyal band of misfits know who they are hunting for—but they don't know why the family was targeted, or what living nightmare lies ahead: from Indian raiders to Mexican bandits and nature's own fury. By the time Charley finds his family in the most brutally lawless part of Mexico there will only be one way out: through a hail fire of bullets and a mad, galloping bloody battle for survival.

The Sunday Lectionary examines a key aspect of the liturgical use of the Bible: how the Lectionary puts biblical flesh on the bones of the liturgical calendar and gives paschal shape to the Christian year. Although the current Lectionary has been in use since 1969, its history, purpose, and structure remains relatively unknown to the many who proclaim or hear its readings. The Sunday Lectionary contributes to a theology of proclamation by explaining the principles that underlie the Lectionary's selection of biblical passages and its patterns of reading distribution that structure the Sundays, feast days, and seasons of the liturgical year. The book is divided into two parts. The first lays the groundwork by surveying the history of the Lectionaries (chapter 1), chronicling the highlights of the Vatican II Lectionary reform (chapter 2), and examining the characteristic traits of the revised Sunday and feast day Lectionary and its ecumenical import (chapter 3). The second part analyzes the Lectionary's architecture for each of the liturgical seasons (chapters 4-9). Liturgical proclamation breathes life into the ancient inscribed words, transforming them from words into the Word, thus bringing the transforming, nourishing presence of the risen Christ into the world. The Sunday Lectionary not only helps enrich theological conversation but helps pastors, homilists, worship leaders, rectors, cantors, and students of liturgy foster a deeper appreciation of the Lectionary and, through the Lectionary, the liturgy.". . . of inestimable help for all who use it, primarily for Roman Catholics but also for homilists and educators in other traditions. I recommend it without reservation." Reginald H. Fuller Professor Emeritus Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia". . . a refreshing, clear, simple, insightful, intelligent read. . . . This volume should be required reading for those involved in preparing Sunday liturgies, for lectors and homilists, and for anyone desiring a deeper understanding of how the Sunday Lectionary draws us into the paschal mystery. Oh, taste and see!" Joyce Ann Zimmerman, C.PP.S., Ph.D. Editor, Liturgical Ministry

Sunday Reed was a passionate cook and gardener, who believed in home-grown produce, seasonal cooking and a communal table. Sunday's Kitchen tells the story of food and living at the home of John and Sunday Reed, two of Australia's most significant art benefactors. Settling on the fifteen-acre property in 1935, the Reeds transformed it from a run-down dairy farm into a fertile creative space for artists such as Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester and Charles Blackman. Richly illustrated with art, photographs-many previously unpublished-and recipes from Sunday's personal collection, Sunday's Kitchen recreates Heide's compelling and complex story.

The Royal Tenenbaums meets J. D. Salinger in this “sharply observed and bittersweet family romance with a rock ’n’ roll heart” (Elle). Claudio and Mathilde Simone, once romantic bohemians hopelessly enamored with each other, find themselves nestled in domesticity in New York, running a struggling vinyl record store and parenting three daughters as best they can: Natasha, an overachieving prodigy; sensitive Lucy, with her debilitating heart condition; and Carly, adopted from China and quietly fixated on her true origins. With prose that is as keen and illuminating as it is whimsical and luminous, debut novelist Christine Reilly tells the unusual love story of this family. Poignant and humane, Sunday’s on the Phone to Monday is a deft exploration of the tender ties that bind families together, even as they threaten to tear them apart.
