Book excerpt: The Alex Award–winning novel of a young gay man’s search for meaning—from an author whose “voice is more than just honest or original; it’s real” (The Plain Dealer). Meet seventeen-year-old Noah York, the hilariously profane, brutally honest, completely engaging narrator of Bart Yates’s astonishing debut novel. With a mouth like a truck driver and eyes that see through the lies of the world, Noah is heading into a life that’s only getting more complicated by the day. His dead father is fading into a snapshot memory, and his psycho-poet mother has relocated them from Chicago to a rural New England hamlet that looks like a bad advertisement for small-town America. The house he now lives in is literally coming apart at the seams as he and his mother renovate the old Victorian—in which they discover disturbing clues to the mysterious existence of a woman who disappeared decades before. While his mother grows more obsessed with the mysterious woman, Noah fights his own troubling—but irresistible—obsession with the boy next door, the enigmatic J.D. It is J.D. who begins to quietly anchor Noah to his new life. J.D., who is hiding a terrible, haunting pain of his own that will affect Noah in ways he never thought possible . . . Part Portnoy, part Holden Caulfield, never less than truthful, and always fully human, Noah York is a touching and unforgettable character whose “blunt, funny and dead-on narrative” is sure to entertain and entrance readers (Brian Malloy).

Book excerpt: Chely Wright, singer, songwriter, country music star, writes in this moving, telling memoir about her life and her career; about growing up in America’s heartland, the youngest of three children; about barely remembering a time when she didn’t know she was different. She writes about her parents, putting down roots in their twenties in the farming town of Wellsville, Kansas, Old Glory flying atop the poles on the town’s manicured lawns, and being raised to believe that hard work, honesty, and determination would take her far. She writes of making up her mind at a young age to become a country music star, knowing then that her feelings and crushes on girls were “sinful” and hoping and praying that she would somehow be “fixed.” (“Dear God, please don’t let me be gay. I promise not to lie. I promise not to steal. I promise to always believe in you . . . Please take it away.”) We see her, high school homecoming queen, heading out on her own at seventeen and landing a job as a featured vocalist on the Ozark Jubilee (the show that started Brenda Lee, Red Foley, and Porter Wagoner), being cast in Country Music U.S.A., doing four live shows a day, and—after only a few months in Nashville—her dream coming true, performing on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry . . . She describes writing and singing her own songs for producers who’d discovered and recorded the likes of Reba McEntire, Shania Twain, and Toby Keith, who heard in her music something special and signed her to a record contract, releasing her first album and sending her out on the road on her first bus tour . . . She writes of sacrificing all for a shot at success that would come a couple of years later with her first hit single, “Shut Up And Drive” . . . her songs (from her fourth album, Single White Female) climbing the Billboard chart for twenty-nine weeks, hitting the #1 spot . . . She writes about the friends she made along the way—Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, and others—writing songs, recording and touring together, some of the friendships developing into romantic attachments that did not end happily . . . Keeping the truth of who she was clutched deep inside, trying to ignore it in a world she longed to be a part of—and now was—a world in which country music stars had never been, could not be, openly gay . . . She writes of the very real prospect of losing everything she’d worked so hard to create . . . doing her best to have a real life—her best not good enough . . . And in the face of everything she did to keep herself afloat, she writes about how the vortex of success and hiding who she was took its toll: her life, a tangled mess she didn’t see coming, didn’t want to; and, finally, finding the guts to untangle herself from the image of the country music star she’d become, an image steeped in long-standing ideals and notions about who—and what—a country artist is, and what their fans expect them to be . . . I am a songwriter,” she writes. “I am a singer of my songs—and I have a story to tell. As I’ve traveled this path that has delivered me to where I am today, my monument of thanks, paying honor to God, remains. I will do all I can with what I have been given . . .” Like Me is fearless, inspiring, true.

Book excerpt: To say that life isn’t going as planned for Gettysburg ghost tour operator Faith Reynolds is a bit of an understatement. Nicknamed “Miss Mouse” because of her lack of self-confidence, Faith is facing the possible loss of her business. She’s also being pressured to date a man she’s not interested in just to please her father, and watching the man she’s secretly been in love with for years possibly end up as some other woman’s arm candy. Unfortunately, she also sees no way to change her current situation. Fellow ghost tour operator Alex Lafayette was once the poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks. Now he’s wealthy, successful, and fielding more offers than he can possibly handle. Despite the best efforts of the women in town, he’s also very much alone because the woman he wants doesn’t seem to want him in return. Though Alex has been in love with Faith since they were kids, he’s convinced she sees him as nothing more than a friend. Until one afternoon, unexpected sparks begin to fly between them. Desperate to change her life and snag a date with Alex, Faith begs her best friend, Kara Ford, to cast a so-called “boyfriend spell” to hopefully solve at least one of her problems. Once the spell is cast, Faith feels like a new woman – literally! She’s bold and confident, sexy and brash, and, oh yeah, has managed to snare Alex as the promised boyfriend. However, as the two grow closer both personally and professionally, Faith is forced to wonder if their relationship is simply the result of magic or if what she’s found with Alex is really true love that could last a lifetime? Assuming he never finds out about The Boyfriend Spell, of course! This 110,300-word novel is written in the modern romance style for a slightly hotter read. It may not be appropriate for younger audiences.

Novelist Geoff Berner has been tasked with writing a biography of DD, a mysterious, charismatic, chimerical musician who has, it seems, dropped off the face of the earth. In the course of his search for DD, Berner interviews her friends, ex-bandmates, ex-lovers, and others. They paint such variable portraits of her that each successive attempt to describe her casts doubt on the previous testimony. As his project is taken over by the lively, infuriating, entertaining tales, a wounded, gifted, and complex DD starts to emerge from all the eyewitness accounts and swear-to-God true stories. Who is DD? Where did she go? And why didn’t that book get written? Travel through a world of knockabout musicians and chancers, on the trail of an inimitable artist who truly lives in the moment, for better or worse.

Book excerpt: Originally published in 1978, Philosophy in Social Work is a collection of papers that invites reflective consideration of the philosophical issues arising out of social work. The work stemmed from a series of meetings at the University of Glasgow, designed to encourage philosophers to look at traditional problems raised in the comparatively unfamiliar setting of social work and social service, and for social workers to see the place for philosophical reflection on what they are doing. Among the subjects discussed in the collection are discretion, rights, charity and the Welfare State, the morality of law and the politics of probation, authority and the social workers, and social work and ideology. The underlying theme of all the papers is the away in which philosophy can revive discussion of beliefs and values in social work. It also asks philosophers to intensify their treatment of concrete issues of social significance.
