Brand new stories by: Domenic Stansberry, Barry Gifford, Eddie Muller, Robert Mailer Anderson, Michelle Tea, Peter Plate, Kate Braverman, David Corbett, Alejandro Murguía, Sin Soracco, Alvin Lu, Jon Longhi, Will Christopher Baer, Jim Nesbit, and David Henry Sterry. San Francisco Noir lashes out with hard-biting, all-original tales exploring the shadowy nether regions of scenic "Baghdad by the Bay." Virtuosos of the genre meet up with the best of S.F.'s literary fiction community to chart a unique psycho-geography for a dark landscape. From inner city boroughs to the outlands, each contributor offers an original story based in a distinct neighborhood. At times brutal, darkly humorous, and revelatory--the stories speak of a hidden San Francisco, a town where the fog is but a prelude to darker realities lingering beneath. “The protagonists of noir fiction have their own agendas, but for readers much of the pleasure is unraveling the mystery and deciphering the clues that constitute a city, and if there is a love story in noir writing it’s the passion of writers, readers, and protagonists for the gritty geographical details. As the bodies drop in the strong stories here, steep, fog-wrapped, fratricidal San Francisco comes alive: here are old neighborhoods, bars, bookstores, the famous and then forgotten landlord arson at 16th and Valencia, buried streams, streetcars, parks, a lost city and the new city haunting almost every page of this gorgeous anthology of San Francisco noir.” —Rebecca Solnit “I was wondering about the city’s shadowside that the guides didn’t show. These top writers are of the ‘As bad as it gets’ brand, and then worse. If you like puke, fear & loathing caused by stray bullets, happenstance getting the hero who is an anti-hero really, a male corpse rotting in the bathtub while the woman poops in the garden, the Reverend Christmas shot in the ear by the PO-lice, then this is your good read for a murky, maybe even gritty, weekend.” —Janwillem van de Wetering “San Francisco has long been a city of back alleys and black figures; this is its romantic map.” —Michael Ray, Editor, Zoetrope All-Story

In Lucha Corpis story, "Hollow Point at the Synapses," her unique narrator, a bullet, describes the instant before killing a young Peruvian woman: "I feel the pull of the hammer. The pressure mounts. I am now in place. The moment is upon me. Swiftly and efficiently, I will do what I must, what I was created for. In an instant, I am off, traveling at a speed reserved only for death." This groundbreaking anthology of short fiction by Latino mystery writers, Hit List: The Best of Latino Mystery , features an intriguing and unpredictable cast of sleuths, murderers and crime victims. Reflecting the authors and societys preoccupation with identity, self, and territory, the stories run the gamut of the mystery genre, from traditional to noir, from the private investigator to the police procedural, and even a "chick lit" mystery. "The Right Profile" features a Miami private investigator who goes undercover to prove a deadbeat father can pay child support, and she delights in testifying against him in court. In "The Skull of Pancho Villa," someone has stolen the family heirloom and its up to Gus Corral to get it back. And in "A New York Chicano," a successful bachelor from El Paso a graduate of NYU working for Merrill Lynch in Manhattan gets his revenge against a xenophobic newscaster. Hit List collects for the first time short fiction by many of the Latino authors who have been pioneers in the mystery genre, using it to showcase their unique cultures, neighborhoods and realities. Contributors include award-winning writers such as Carolina García-Aguilera, Alicia Gaspar de Alba, Rolando Hinojosa, Manuel Ramos and Sergio Troncoso, as well as emerging writers who deserve more recognition.

"This smart, delightful, and seductive dual-language (Spanish and English) collection by the 2017 winner of the Paz Prize for Poetry is a loving and sly portrait of Miami and the immigrant experience in the 21st century." --Publishers Weekly; included in Fall 2017 Adult Announcements, Poetry "Miami Century Fox is Legna Rodríguez Iglesias's English debut, but by no means is she an emerging poet. Here's a voice that's seasoned and fierce, tender and sharp as a blade. I promise, dear readers, that you will not encounter another book quite like this, nor another poet quite like Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, ever again." --Achy Obejas, from the introduction A bilingual--English and Spanish--collection by the 2017 winner of the Paz Prize for Poetry, Miami Century Fox is a delightful, seductive read. Sonnets? Rhyme and meter? Yes, along with a delicious serving of irony and wit. This is one very smart collection of poems--a loving and sly portrait of Miami and the immigrant experience in the twenty-first century. Translated by Eduardo Aparicio. The Paz Prize for Poetry is presented by The National Poetry Series and The Center for Writing and Literature at Miami Dade College and is awarded biennially. Named in the spirit of the late Novel Prize--winning poet Octavio Paz, it honors a previously unpublished book of poetry written originally in Spanish by an American resident.

Winner of the 2015 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award in Nonfiction Longlisted for the 2015 OCM Bocas Prize in Nonfiction One of Oprah.com's Best Memoirs of the Year One of The Skanner's Best Black Books of 2014 One of Oprah.com's "Memoirs Too Powerful to Put Down" "Nunez ponders the cultural, racial, familial, social, and personal experiences that led to what she ultimately understands was a deeply loving union between her parents. A beautifully written exploration of the complexities of marriage and family life." --Booklist (starred review) "Through her thoughtful and articulate writing, Nunez offers a valuable perspective on the racism that she experienced, even in America, and the damage the Catholic Church does to women who follow the 'no artificial birth control' rule. Recommended for memoir enthusiasts and readers interested in Caribbean literature." --Library Journal "An intriguing...courageous memoir." --Kirkus Reviews "A narrative that feels like a close friend talking about her past...An insightful, generous story." --Oprah.com "Nunez reflects on her mother's legacy as she works through her grief, and demonstrates mastery of her craft." --Huffington Post "A powerful memoir...this non-fiction narrative pulls the curtain back upon the Caribbean woman known as writer, mother, sister and wife...Definitely peruse how this writer’s narrative plays out." --Ebony "Self-effacing and honest, Nunez gives listeners a unique window onto a foreign world." --AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Review of audiobook edition narrated by Elizabeth Nunez "A celebration of understanding and empathy." --Chicago Center for Literature and Photography "When a writer like Elizabeth Nunez, who has spent her career unraveling the romances we tell ourselves about our native Caribbean, migrates from the novel to the memoir, readers are eager to discover what boundaries of both genre and familial privacy she will disrupt. Not for Everyday Use is a loving disruption. Through the prism of her parents' enviable marriage--more than half a century--Nunez intimately explores a changing colonial landscape and attitudes about race, reproduction, and the meaning of family." --Review: Literature of the Arts of the Americas no. 91 "Readers and writers of US ethnic literatures will find Nunez' voicing of immigrant sentiments familiar, eloquent, and distinctive." --La Bloga "I loved Not for Everyday Use by Elizabeth Nunez...a must read." --Carry On Friends "A sensitive memoir...The Caribbean is home for many excellent writers, and Elizabeth Nunez is one of the best." --Me, You, and Books Tracing the four days from the moment she gets the call that every immigrant fears to the burial of her mother, Elizabeth Nunez tells the haunting story of her lifelong struggle to cope with the consequences of the "sterner stuff" of her parents' ambitions for their children and her mother's seemingly unbreakable conviction that displays of affection are not for everyday use. But Nunez sympathizes with her parents, whose happiness is constrained by the oppressive strictures of colonialism, by the Catholic Church's prohibition of artificial birth control which her mother obeys, terrified by the threat of eternal damnation (her mother gets pregnant fourteen times: nine live births and five miscarriages which almost kill her), and by what Malcolm Gladwell refers to as the "privilege of skin color" in his mother’s Caribbean island homeland where "the brown-skinned classes...came to fetishize their lightness." Still, a fierce love holds this family together, and the passionate, though complex, love Nunez's parents have for each other will remind readers of the passion between the aging lovers in Gabriel García Márquez's Love in the Time of Cholera. Written in exquisite prose by a writer the New York Times Book Review calls "a master at pacing and plotting," Not for Everyday Use is a page-turner that readers will find impossible to put down.
