This extraordinary love story, based on historical characters and written with Boyle's customary brilliance and wit, follows the lives of two scarred creatures living in a magical age. It is the turn of the century. Stanley McCormick, the twenty-nine-year-old heir to the great Reaper fortune, meets and marries Katherine Dexter, a woman of 'power, beauty, wealth and prestige'. Two years later, Stanley falls victim to a tormenting sexual mania and schizophrenia, and is imprisoned in the massive forbidding mansion known as Riven Rock. He spends the next two decades under the control of a succession of psychiatrists, all of whom forbid any contact with women. Yet Katherine Dexter, now famous as a champion for women's suffrage and Planned Parenthood, remains strong in her belief that someday her husband will return to her whole. Based on a true story of love, madness and sexuality this is a tragic book with enormous depth and scope. Set in America at the turn of the century, it is full of fascinating historical detail.

Understanding T. C. Boyle is the first book-length study of one of contemporary Americas most prolific, popular, and critically acclaimed fiction writers. The author of seven short story collections and eleven novels, T. C. Boyle has been honored with the 1988 PEN/Faulkner Award for Worlds End, the 1997 Prix Mdicis tranger for The Tortilla Curtain, the 1999 PEN/Malamud Award for T. C. Boyle: Stories, and a 2003 National Book Award nomination for Drop City. Boyles 1993 novel, The Road to Wellville, was adapted into a feature film. Paul Gleason begins his investigation of Boyles work by exploring the biographical, historical, and literary contexts at play in the writers fiction. Gleason maps the literary influences that shaped Boyles wise guy style, among them Gabriel Garca Mrquez, Flannery OConnor, Raymond Carver, and Samuel Beckett. The volume then features chapters on Boyles short fiction and his novels of the past three decades. Gleason demonstrates Boyles literary development as entertainer, absurdist, social commentator and critic, and historical novelist who chronicles the baby boomer generation while addressing a range of contemporary social issues, such as race relations, illegal immigration, and feminism. Gleason shows how Boyle uses dark humor as a moral and satiric force for social commentary in the tradition of writers such as Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. Though the entertainment value of Boyles writing has much to do with his popularity, Gleason also sees him as an iconoclast who questions his generations ideals, philosophies, and actions.

This volume contains not one year, but two years of morning and evening devotions. For 366 additional pages of devotions have been selected from Spurgeon's writings, most of them from his Treasury of David. We have entitled this extra year of devotions, Morning and Evening II. Also the devotions of many other noted authors appear. In Spurgeon's preface to Treasury of David we find the following: ''The delightful study of the Psalms has yielded me boundless profit and ever-growing pleasure. Common gratitude constrains me to communicate to others a portion of the benefit, with the prayer that it may induce them to search further for themselves.'' These comments bare the heart of Charles Haddon Spurgeon, a preacher of righteousness, and a man after God's own heart. Anyone with only a brief acquaintance with the fruits of his pen must see that this famed but humble soul lived and breathed the Word of God. The reader of these daily devotions will quickly discover that Mr. Spurgeon did not ''keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God'' (Acts. 20:27). In his heart he magnified the Lord; his heart panted after Him ''as the heart pants after the waterbrooks.'' Therefore, in his devotions he did not forget the teachings of Holy Scripture. These devotions which he has written for the saints of God reflect his own personal devotions. Any sincere lover of God and of His Word should cherish the many gleams of heavenly light which leap from every page of this volume. And if he biblically bears down on the doctrines of grace which have been hidden from view in this ungodly age, it will soon prove to be a blessing of the highest degree to those who ''seek to know the Lord, '' an to ''grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ'' (2 Peter 3:18) As you read these devotions day by day, may you find yourselves fervently saying, ''To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity'' (2 Peter 3:18).

For more than three decades, Bruce Springsteen’s ability to express in words and music the deepest hopes, fears, loves, and sorrows of average Americans has made him a hero to his millions of devoted fans. Racing in the Street is the first comprehensive collection of writings about Springsteen, featuring the most insightful, revealing, famous, and infamous articles, interviews, reviews, and other writings. This nostalgic journey through the career of a rock-’n’-roll legend chronicles every album and each stage of Springsteen’s career. It’s all here—Dave Marsh’s Rolling Stone review of Springsteen’s ten sold-out Bottom Line shows in 1975 in New York City, Jay Cocks’s and Maureen Orth’s dueling Time and Newsweek cover stories, George Will’s gross misinterpretation of Springsteen’s message on his Born in the USA tour, and Will Percy’s 1999 interview for Double Take, plus much, much more.

T.C. Boyle’s “compelling” (The Chicago Tribune) novel about assimilation and the price of the American dream Topanga Canyon is home to two couples on a collision course. Los Angeles liberals Delaney and Kyra Mossbacher lead an ordered sushi-and-recycling existence in a newly gated hilltop community: he a sensitive nature writer, she an obsessive realtor. Mexican illegals Candido and America Rincon desperately cling to their vision of the American Dream as they fight off starvation in a makeshift camp deep in the ravine. And from the moment a freak accident brings Candido and Delaney into intimate contact, these four and their opposing worlds gradually intersect in what becomes a tragicomedy of error and misunderstanding. From the Trade Paperback edition.
