              Metaphors: A Reverse Love Story (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McMann, Steven

              A must read story for anyone interested in the beauty and challenges of late love. In Love Story, Erich Segal told the romantic story of a Harvard hockey player from a wealthy New England family falling in love with a Radcliffe girl from a blue-collar background. Segal's simple s...tory of young love captured America's heart, first in print and later on the big screen, and catapulted the obscure Harvard classics professor to fame and fortune. Now, forty-five years later, Steven McMann tells a reverse love story between two Harvard graduates late in life as they struggle to find love in spite of socio-economic, age and gender gaps. Steve is a never-married lawyer and book collector from an impoverished Michigan background, and Liz is a recent divorce from a wealthy blue-blood Boston family. They think their story of seasoned love with its emphasis on mutuality and explicit sex, as tempered by metaphor, opens the possibility for a deeper more realistic form of love. But will the practice prove as good as the theory? Enjoy the read.

              A Muse of Fire: A Play Arranged from the Works of Shakespeare (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McClung, Merle

              Merle McClung compiled A Muse of Fire from the works of Shakespeare in 1965 as a Rhodes Scholar at Trinity College, Oxford. The play gathered dust on Mr. McClung's library shelves until 2014 when failing health convinced him to publish it before it ended up in a landfill. Reading... some of Shakespeare's most beloved poetry in a different context has obvious drawbacks, but also enables Shakespeare lovers to appreciate him in a new light. Prince Hal, Falstaff, Hotspur, Hamlet, and other luminaries come together in surprising symmetry as the play transitions from comic fantasy to the historic tragedy of war. The Use Muse section suggests challenging tests and stimulating games for literary-inclined adults to identify the source of selections from A Muse of Fire.

              Three Farces: The Tim & Fanny Show, White Collar Time, Doctor Sperm (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McClung, Merle

              Although carried to extremes in the 1980's, Three Farces pokes fun at topics Americans continue to obsess over: sex, money, power and Jesus. Being an unholy blend of all four, the Tim & Fanny Show leads the way. White Collar Time is mostly about greed and dollars, but with sex an...d power as subplots. Doctor Sperm is focused on sex and man's inability to control his second brain, but also features dollar and power subplots. Merle McClung has created a website/blog to help counter such dysfunction, since the excess of the 1980's repeats itself today. He invites all Goodheads (those who seek the common good) to join the discussion at MakeOurDemocracyWork.com.

              A Rhodes Retrospective: Volume I: My Education (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McClung, Merle

              Merle McClung's memoir A Rhodes Retrospective is a two-volume set: Volume I My Education and Volume II My Career. In Volume I McClung tells his story from impoverished childhood in a small Midwestern town (Montevideo, Minnesota) to unlikely scholarships to Harvard College, Oxford... University and Harvard Law School. His improbable rise from bottom to top socio-economic status, underscored by winning a Rhodes Scholarship, is not a rags to riches, but rather a rags to respect story. In his memoir, McClung pays tribute to some of those who made it possible: his working mother (Martha), his public high school English teacher (Claude Dziuk), his Republican mentor (Ollie Rekow) and his Constitutional Law Professor (Archibald Cox). Only later in life does McClung come to appreciate how much basketball has paved the way to a larger world beyond the game.
