Picking up where he left off in his acclaimed memoir Sting-Ray Afternoons, Steve Rushin brilliantly captures a bygone era, and the thrills of new adulthood in the early 80s. It begins in Bloomington, Minnesota, with a 13-year-old kid staging his own author photo that he hopes will someday grace the cover of a book jacket. And it ends at a desk in the legendary Time & Life building, with that same boy-now in his early 20s and writing professionally-reflecting on how the hell he got there from what seems like a distant universe. In between, Steve Rushin whisks us along on an extraordinarily funny, tender, and altogether unforgettable journey. From a menial summer job at suburban Bennigan's, to first-time college experiences in Milwaukee, to surviving early adulthood in seedy New York City, this deeply touching odyssey will remind any reader of those special moments when they too went from innocence to experience.
6 weeks of white castle /n rust is a collection of poems which takes the gravity of the post-industrial American Mid-West as its subject. The poems are the brutal, often humorous conjurings of a world populated by waitresses, dead-end wages and ghosts. Built from the scrap, wreckage and junk typical of places defined by their decay and abandon, DiSabatino's world of rust and rebirth carves a unique voice in new American poetry.
In the seventeenth century, a young Italian scholar sailing from Venice to Naples is taken prisoner and delivered to Constantinople, into the custody of a scholar known as Hoja—‘master’—a man who is his exact double. Hoja wonders, given the knowledge of each other’s most intimate secrets, if they could actually exchange identities. Set in a world of magnificent scholarship and terrifying savagery, The White Castle is a colourful and intricately patterned triumph of the imagination.

However, none have offered a better definition than David Richard, a former Lutcher High School star running back and head football coach of the 1983 state champion Bulldogs. The Bulldogs: A History of Lutcher High School Footbal examines how teenage boys for generations have come together through hard work, dedication, and sacrifice to form something greater than the individual sum of their parts - to create an ever-evolving definition of "Lutcher Football."
