I wasn’t trying to discover new places. I wasn’t going to break or create a record. I was going only on an impulse, entirely my own, just out of the natural curiosity that life brings, the delight of living. Was this not a valid enough reason? With curiosity in her heart and a prayer on her lips, Nabaneeta hauled herself on to a truck and set off on a journey to fill her unfilled bag of stories. Sacks, paper cartons, steel cupboards, wicker furniture, baskets of angry, clucking chickens, and a sharp smell surrounded her. How many days in this stench? How many hours? How many endless moments? This is a travelogue of Nabaneeta’s journey from Jorhat in Assam all the way to the McMahon line at the Indo-Tibetan border, a trip undertaken on an impulse, detailing her encounters with countless ordinary individuals, their reactions to a middle-aged woman’s solo road trip in India in 1977, and the extraordinary events that unfold along the way. Reflective and humorous, the narrative presents travel as an avenue of liberation.

This is a parable of my generation; a book about what they have made us and what we wanted to be; an acknowledgment that we cannot change the others if we don’t first changes ourselves; a surrender to the evidence that changing is a slow and difficult process and “it is easier to be in our future the same persons we were in our past”; it represents the unfinished work of a generation that had decided to run ahead faster than they could. Ann McMahon was born on June 10, 1946, in Riverton, NJ. She was the second child of a family of Irish immigrants. She receives a traditional catholic education and learns from her mother what church and school cannot teach; the art of living. As a child, “life looked like a simple game easy to play”. Sustained by the basic principles of conformist living Ann goes, along with all the baby boomers, through the shock waves of her generation; the cultural revolution, the women liberation movement, the Vietnam war, the civil right movement, the Beat generation etc... Resolved not to be swayed by the power and appeal of these events she looks at them from a safe distance and proceeds with few doubts and much determination toward her simple dream: a happy family with husband and children. Life, however,comes to be a game difficult to play and becomes marred by questions without simple answers: the tragic death of her sister, the unforeseen relationship with her brother, the unsettled friendship with Cathy, the concealed love for Rob, the overwhelming presence of her mother, the domineering husband, the children’s choices. Unable to change herself or everybody around her, she turns, like others in this story, into a disheartened guard and prisoner of her own culture.

Seventy-five years ago, the Waterloo Wonders came frolicking out of the Lawrence County hills to become the most colorful, most exciting, most unforgettable team in the history of Ohio high school basketball. Over two seasons, they won back-to-back state championships and in the process, perhaps as many as 100 games, only a handful of them on their own court. In an era when a virtually unknown team called the Harlem Globetrotters was still playing one-night stands in small-town high school gyms and dance halls across the Middle West, the Wonders, imitating no one, astonished overflow crowds in the states largest arenas with their whirlwind passing, deadeye shooting, lockdown defense and whimsical showmanship. Left-handed, right-handed, two-handed, behind the back, between the legs, over-handed, underhanded, bowling style, sitting down, lying down, without lookingthe Wonders passed with such lightning speed, such radar accuracy, fans and opponents alike often did not know where the ball was. Now, on the 75h anniversary of their first championship season, author Dick Burdette, whose book, The Fabulous Waterloo Wonders was published in 1961, has written a revised and expanded account of their story, It is now available exclusively at authorhouse.com or at waterloowonders.com.

From beloved indie musician Andrew McMahon comes a searingly honest and beautifully written memoir about the challenges and triumphs of his life and career, as seen through the lens of his personal connection to three pianos. Andrew McMahon grew up in sunny Southern California as a child prodigy, learning to play piano and write songs at a very early age, stunning schoolmates and teachers alike with his gift for performing and his unique ability to emotionally connect with audiences. McMahon would go on to become the lead singer and songwriter for Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin, and to release his debut solo album, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, in 2014. But behind this seemingly optimistic and quintessentially American story of big dreams come true lies a backdrop of overwhelming challenges that McMahon has faced—from a childhood defined by his father's struggle with addiction to his very public battle with leukemia in 2005 at the age of twenty-three, as chronicled in the intensely personal documentary Dear Jack. Overcoming those odds, McMahon has found solace and hope in the things that matter most, including family, the healing power of music and the one instrument he's always turned to: his piano. Three Pianos takes readers on a beautifully rendered and bitter-sweet American journey, one filled with inspiration, heartbreak, and an unwavering commitment to shedding our past in order to create a better future.

Over the past two months, four men have been murdered in their Houston, Texas homes. Each victim was killed on a Sunday evening, and in each case nothing apparently was stolen, and inexplicably, different guns were used in the four murders. The police have no witnesses and no suspects. Rhett Sanders, owner of a local marketing research firm, is visited by the parents of the latest victim who plead with him to investigate their son’s murder. Their son participated in a recent survey conducted by Rhett’s firm, and they had read the publicity Rhett had received for using his research to solve murders in the past. Rhett had promised to give up being an amateur detective, but the despair in the faces of the grieving parents, along with his desire to do the right thing, motivate him to get involved. He and his girlfriend, Toni, and best friend, Chris Beck, undertake an investigation, believing they can solve the case if they can discover what else the victims had in common other than the way they were murdered.
