What would cause a man to leave his sheltered and conservative home in the rural South to move to the hippie-infested left coast of Canada? A woman, obviously. In his second comic memoir, Nathan realizes that although he could make a homemade grenade as a ten-year-old, he is ill-equipped to handle a personal hygiene debate with cannibals, nude strippers on horseback, giant-scrotumed men in loincloths, or Ewoks who aggressively try to stick coffee up his rectum for no apparent reason. Follow Nathan's offbeat and absurd musings as he struggles to make sense of the world outside of Bremen, Georgia.

This is a memoir of enduring love, family, faith-and challenges. Sheila believes fate brings Barry and her together. The fairy tale of falling in love and marrying as teenagers in the Groovy Sixties are only the first steps of their journey. Of course, the busybodies in their small Southern town wait for time to tell if there's a bun in the oven and give them a snowball's chance in hell of making it. The odds are definitely against the young couple. Despite the odds and the problems inherent in most any marriage, Barry and Sheila are blessed with true love-a love the gossipmongers underestimate. Days tumble like dime store dominoes into years, and their love withstands the test of time. Barry and Sheila's story seems to have the necessary elements for a happily-ever-after ending: a devoted marriage, two healthy (albeit rambunctious) sons, and shared dreams. Life is gentle with them until their path takes an unwelcome detour. Cancer is supposed to happen to other people, and they are blindsided by the devastating diagnosis. The interloper brings with it a harsh new reality for both of them. Will their love and their faith be enough to, once again, beat the odds?

" . . . here your will is upright, free, and whole, and you would be in error not to heed whatever your own impulse prompts you to: lord of yourself I crown and mitre you." Dante,The PurgatorioCatherine, nineteen years old and suffering from severe schizophrenia, sat in a mental hospital—mute, catatonic, and hearing voices. Her psychiatrist, Dr. Daniel Dorman, was convinced that his patient's psychotic behavior was rooted not merely in chemical imbalances but rather in the dramatic circumstances of her family history. He was therefore determined to avoid the mind-numbing medications that had been so detrimental to Catherine's well being. Dorman fought adamant opposition and criticism from his peers and superiors for a chance to guide Catherine out of madness. As much the story of a young doctor finding his own path in a controversial new world of antipsychotic drugs, where patients' advocates have nowhere to turn,Dante's Cureis the true account of a therapeutic process that took place six days a week, for seven years. Thanks to Dorman's devotion, persistence, and self-understanding of his role as a therapist aware of his own limitations, Catherine was able to set out on a life of her own. She is now a psychiatric nurse in southern California living free of medication; she speaks out on behalf of patient rights and humanity in the medical profession. Dorman re-creates Catherine's early life and the onset of her illness in striking detail, covering her treatment prior to his meeting her as a resident at UCLA Hospital, through her recovery and work as a nurse and activist. Dante's Cureoffers a story of courage and hope. It reveals how madness is inherent to the human condition and therefore ought to be treated as such. To restore patients' trust in their power to recover, rather than robbing them of their agency in the name of medical knowledge, is the true moral of this remarkable journey out of madness.

Edgar Award Finalist: The shocking account of a Wyoming father who terrorized his family for years—until his children plotted a deadly solution. One cold November night, in Cheyenne, Wyoming, fifteen-year-old Richard Jahnke Jr., ROTC leader and former Boy Scout, waited for his parents to return from celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the night they met. When his father got out of the car, the boy blasted him through the heart with a twelve-gauge pump-action shotgun. Richard’s seventeen-year-old sister, Deborah, was sitting on the living room couch with a high-powered rifle—just in case her brother missed. Hours later the Jahnke kids were behind bars. Days later they made headlines. So did the truth about the house of horrors on Cowpoke Road. Was it cold-blooded murder? Or self-defense? Richard Jahnke Sr., special agent for the IRS, gun collector, and avid reader of Soldier of Fortune, had been subjecting his wife, Maria, and both children to harrowing abuse—physical, psychological, and sexual—for years. Deborah and her brother conspired to finally put a stop to it themselves. But their fate was in the hands of a prejudiced and inept judicial system, and only public outcry could save them. Written with the full and revealing cooperation of the Jahnkes, this finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime is “the ultimate family nightmare, played out in the heartland of America. . . . From the night of the murder through both trials, convictions and both youngsters’ eventual release . . . it’s gripping reading” (Chicago Tribune).
