              August 1945: A Victory Train bound from Chicago rumbles through the Sierra Nevada stuffed with soldiers celebrating the end of WWII. One is Daniel Rose, scion of a legendary movie studio. Moral turpitude has ended Daniel's service to his country. In L.A. Daniel meets Cutter, a ma...n fleeing from military service guarding a uranium mine. Their dream is to put the military behind them. A year later they purchase a coffee-pot radio station. It is an instant success. They buy a retreat they call Mystic Mountain. But their success brings trouble, and they soon discover a mysterious financial arrangement funded with money smuggled out of Europe in 1939 is threatening to ruin everything they've achieved. The two learn that the fund is a scheme to make the world safe for atomic weaponry, and that their Place of Promise has been bought by the same currency of murder, duplicity, innocence, generosity and greed that made post-war America so prosperous.

              The Marrow of Tradition
                

              The Marrow of Tradition (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Charles W. Chesnutt was an author, essayist, and political activist whose works addressed the complex issues of racial and social identity at the turn of the century. Chesnutt's early works explored political issues somewhat indirectly, with the intention of changing the attitude...s of Caucasians slowly and carefully. However, The Marrow of Tradition marked a turning point in Chesnutt's career, with its direct and overt treatment of racism and political injustices in the South. The story of the white Carterets and the mixed-race Millers, whose lives are intertwined because the wives are half sisters, delves into a wide range of social and race issues. The novel's depiction of lynchings that occurred during the Wilmington Race Riot proved to be too controversial for readers of the time; however, Chesnutt considered it his best, and modern critics have recognized the novel as a milestone in the Civil Rights movement. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

              A Nantucket shopkeeper discovers that Christmas is the perfect occasion to make unexpected friendships, warm the coldest of hearts--and maybe even find love. Christina Antonioni is preparing for the holidays at her Nantucket toy shop, unpacking last-minute shipments and decoratin...g for her loyal Christmas shoppers. But when her Scrooge of a landlord, Oscar Bittlesman, raises her rent, it seems nearly impossible for Christina to continue business on the wharf. Even so, Christina hopes there is a warm heart underneath Oscar's steely exterior. When she bonds with Wink, his sweet, young granddaughter who frequents the shop, it becomes clear that perhaps he isn't so cold after all. And with the help of Wink's uncle, who happens to be a charming and very handsome bachelor, this may be the best Christmas any of them could have ever imagined. Nancy Thayer's enchanting Nantucket setting provides the perfect backdrop for this holiday love story.

              With his evocative, stylized prose, apocalyptic intensity, and apparent boundless imagination, Tennison Long's fourth and final novel, On Becoming Yesterday's Actors, suggests a scanning of the narrator's mind, a Luddite Gen Xer who sifts through life via varying digressions, whi...le encompassing the differences of more recent generations through a documentarian interspersing of news articles, psycho analysis, historical documents, and observations of his own private surroundings. Under the threat of his child's abduction, along with a mysterious serial killer spree connection, and the disappearance of a local newscaster, this post-modern meta-manifesto is a second half of life analog to digital coming of age story, chronicled within the ambient noise of a turbulent arrival to the gates of an ever-louder and unrelenting tomorrow.

              Come, sweetheart, let us ride away beyond the city's bound, And seek what pleasant lands across the distant hills are found. There is a golden light that shines beyond the verge of dawn, And there are happy highways leading on and always on; So, sweetheart, let us mount and ride,... with never a backward glance, To find the pleasant shelter of the Valley of Romance.Before us, down the golden road, floats dust from charging steeds, Where two adventurous companies clash loud in mighty deeds; And from the tower that stands alert like some tall, beckoning pine, E'en now, my heart, I see afar the lights of welcome shine!O sweetheart, it is good to find the pathway shining clear! The road is broad, the hope is sure, and you are near and dear! So loose the rein and cheer the steed and let us race away To seek the lands that lie beyond the borders of To-day. Oh, we shall hear at last, my heart, a cheering welcome cried As o'er a clattering drawbridge through the Gate of Dreams we ride!

              American tourists, sure appreciators of all that is ancient and picturesque in England, invariably come to a halt, holding their breath in a sudden catch of wonder, as they pass through the half-ruinous gateway which admits to the Close of Wrychester. Nowhere else in England is t...here a fairer prospect of old-world peace. There before their eyes, set in the centre of a great green sward, fringed by tall elms and giant beeches, rises the vast fabric of the thirteenth-century Cathedral, its high spire piercing the skies in which rooks are for ever circling and calling. The time-worn stone, at a little distance delicate as lacework, is transformed at different hours of the day into shifting shades of colour, varying from grey to purple: the massiveness of the great nave and transepts contrasts impressively with the gradual tapering of the spire, rising so high above turret and clerestory that it at last becomes a mere line against the ether. In morning, as in afternoon, or in evening, here is a perpetual atmosphere of rest; and not around the great church alone, but in the quaint and ancient houses which fence in the Close. Little less old than the mighty mass of stone on which their ivy-framed windows look, these houses make the casual observer feel that here, if anywhere in the world, life must needs run smoothly.

              Half way along the north side of the main street of Highmarket an ancient stone gateway, imposing enough to suggest that it was originally the entrance to some castellated mansion or manor house, gave access to a square yard, flanked about by equally ancient buildings. What those... buildings had been used for in other days was not obvious to the casual and careless observer, but to the least observant their present use was obvious enough. Here were piles of timber from Norway; there were stacks of slate from Wales; here was marble from Aberdeen, and there cement from Portland: the old chambers of the grey buildings were filled to overflowing with all the things that go towards making a house-ironwork, zinc, lead, tiles, great coils of piping, stores of domestic appliances. And on a shining brass plate, set into the wall, just within the gateway, were deeply engraven the words: Mallalieu and Cotherstone, Builders and Contractors ...
