            A delightful collection of Jane Austen's wittiest insights, taken from her celebrated novels and letters. Lauded for her eloquence, observation and wry humour, Jane Austen was a novelist who was highly regarded and greatly celebrated in her own time. However, her appeal is as gre...at as ever, and her insights remain as fresh and relevant today as when they were first published. This delightful volume offers thematic extracts from her fiction and correspondence, featuring quotes from such novels as Emma, Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Persuasion, alongside extracts from Austen's letters to her sister and confidante, Cassandra. Containing a host of quotations displaying Austen's sharp - indeed, often wicked - wit, this wonderful treasury will be enjoyed by fans of the author as well as readers who are new to her writing.

            In We Might As Well Eat, Terry Barr's second book of prose non-fiction, he is so effective and engaging with his use of the familiar essay that readers will find themselves wanting to join in with the other side of the conversation. However, this volume is more than just inviting.... It is also filled with hard-earned courageous truths and a self-awareness far more keen than one ordinarily encounters. -Tim Peeler author of Checking Out and Wild in the Strike Zone Terry Barr may be the Samuel Pepys reincarnate of Bessemer, Alabama. What a food-driven remembrance. --George Singleton, author of Half Mammals of Dixie Terry Barr takes some classic Southern staples and concocts a unique, satisfying recipe in We Might As Well Eat: How to Survive Tornadoes, Alabama Football, and Your Southern Family. The first time through this wonderful collection of essays, you will devour everything in large bites. Then you'll return again and again-more slowly-savoring every story and anecdote that Barr reels out with his effortless, crystal-clear prose. Dig in. --Scott Gould, author of Strangers to Temptation Cleared-eyed and courageous, Terry Barr's fine new memoir revisits his life growing up and raising a family in the American South. He bears witness to complicated times and eccentric characters, admitting early that as a sixty-year-old man, he's doesn't really quite know who he is. I am a product of all that made me, a blended, thick soup of ethnic, religious and regional identity. Liberal son of a Jewish father and a Methodist mother, married to a Persian women, and father to two lovely daughters, this lifelong Alabama football fan and avid Faulkner scholar, admits that religion, politics, and football threaten to divide family loyalties, a family at times frayed, bent and unmoored. Terry Barr's inquisitive voice, measured pace, and clear prose blend such disparities and serve as a loving roux for his coming to terms with his Southern upbringing and his life as a son, husband and fa

            Richard Tempest examines Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's evolution as a literary artist from his early autobiographical novel Love the Revolution to the experimental mega-saga The Red Wheel, and beyond. Tempest shows how this author gives his characters a presence so textured that we ca...n readily imagine them as figures of flesh and blood and thought and feeling. The study discusses Solzhenitsyn's treatment of Lenin, Stalin, and the Russian Revolution; surprising predilection for textual puzzles and games a la Nabokov or even Borges; exploration of erotic themes; and his polemical interactions with Russian and Western modernism. Also included is new information about the writer's life and art provided by his family, as well as Tempest's interviews with him in 2003-7.

            The now of me is all you need to know and will be evident in all that follows. The particulars of my story are profiled elsewhere. (see...) I am a seeker and am grateful for being so, My journey, I hope, underlines my belief that tells me God writes straight with crooked lines., ...that faith is the heartbeat of a meaningful life, and that prodigal in me is going home. Once a priest (always, they say), I have encountered a deeper spirituality in a wider, more personally free world. I used to preach about the glory of God being a person fully alive, and finally heard those words myself. Since then, my journey has been one of seeking constantly the fullness of life which, I believe, awaits beyond this time and place. Charles A. Wilkinson has spent his life focused on others, early on a priest, later as a marriage and family therapist, then, for more than twenty years, as a columnist for the Evanston RoundTable in Evanston, Illinois. Married, the father of three and grandfather of four, he is the author of The Dumb Thumb, Liam the Leprechaun, Speaking of...Communication, and Contemplations In the Sometimes Quiet of a Hospital Room. For many years he and his wife, a University professor, lectures and gave weekend workshops in Family Communication.
