              Big Familia - A Novel (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Big Familia follows Juan Guti rrez, a self-employed single father, as he navigates a tumultuous year of inescapable change. His daughter, Stella, is on the verge of moving away to college; his lover, Jared, is pressing him for commitment; and his favorite watering hole--a ramshac...kle dive presided over by Bob the Bartender--is transforming into a karaoke hotspot. The story is set in a neighborhood that is also changing, gentrification inciting the ire of the established community. Upon the unexpected death of one of the bar's regulars, Juan is sent reeling, and a series of upheavals follow as he both seeks and spurns intimacy, pondering the legacy of distant parents and a failed marriage and grappling with his sexuality--all the while cycling and dating, drinking at Nicks Lounge, and parenting a determined and defiant child-become-woman. When his incarcerated father dies and Stella reveals she's pregnant, Juan is forced to examine the emotional bonds that both hold and hinder him, to reassess his ideas of commitment, of friendship, of love. His encounters with various characters--his mother, his ex-wife, a middle-aged punker, an aspiring acupuncturist, a dapper veteran--lead Juan to the realization that he himself must change to thrive. This is a story of making family and making mistakes, of rending and of mending. As a Latinx queer father with a mixed-race daughter, Juan exemplifies the ways identity connects and divides us. With wit, insight, and tenderness, Big Familia explores the complexities of desire, devotion, and the mysteries of the heart.

              Swim, Bike, Bonk: Confessions of a Reluctant Triathlete (Hardback)

              By McGough, Will

              Just as George Plimpton had his proverbial cup of coffee in the NFL as the un-recruited and certainly unwanted fourth-string quarterback for the Detroit Lions, so, too, did Will McGough immerse himself in a sport he had no business trying. Like Plimpton, whose football folly turn...ed into the bestselling Paper Lion, travel and outdoor writer McGough writes of his participation in, around, and over the course of the one of the world's premier triathlons, the annual Ironman 70.3 in Tempe, Arizona. McGough chronicles the Ironman's history, his unorthodox training, the pageantry of the race weekend, and his attempt to finish the epic event. The narrative follows not just his race but also explores the cult and habits of the triathlete community, beginning with the first Ironman competition in Hawaii in 1978. This is a light-hearted, self-deprecating, and at times hilarious look at one man's attempt to conquer the ultimate endurance sport, with a conclusion that will surprise and delight both dedicated triathletes as well as strangers to the sport.

              A River Runs Through it and Other Stories: Fortieth Anniversary Edition
                

              A River Runs Through it and Other Stories: Fortieth Anniversary Edition (Trade Paperback / Paperback, First Edition, Enlarged ed.)

              By MacLean, Norman; Foreword by Redford, Robert

              When Norman Maclean sent the manuscript of A River Runs through It to New York publishers, he received a slew of rejections. It has trees in it, one editor replied. Forty years later, the title novella is widely recognized as one of the great American tales of the twentieth centu...ry, and Maclean as one of the most beloved writers of our time. The finely distilled product of seventy years of a life of often surprising rapture, for fly fishing, for the woods and their people, and for the interlocked beauty of life and art, A River Runs through It has over the decades established itself as a classic of the American West. This new edition will introduce a fresh audience to Maclean s beautiful prose and understated emotional insights. Elegantly redesigned, A River Runs through It includes a new foreword by Robert Redford, whose film adaptation of River turns twenty-five in 2017. Based on Maclean s own experiences as a young man, the two novellas and short story it contains are set in the small towns and mountains of western Montana. It is a world populated with drunks, loggers, card sharks, and whores, but also one rich in the pleasures of fly fishing, logging, cribbage, and family. By turns raunchy and elegiac, these superb tales express, in Maclean s own words, a little of the love I have for the earth as it goes by. Though he grew up in the first decades of the twentieth century in the western Rockies working summers in logging camps and for the US Forest Service and cultivating a lifelong passion for the dry fly it was only at the age of seventy, as a retired English professor, that Norman Maclean discovered what he was meant to do: write. Moving and profound, A River Runs through It honors the literary legacy of a man who improbably gave voice to an essential corner of the American soul. I am haunted by waters, Maclean writes at the close of A River Runs through It. So, now, are we all.
