Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'An elegant, wise - ass rush of truth, hiding riotous social commentary in slanderous jokes...It almost feels like he's leading a palace coup.'' - Spin Magazine on Portable Altamont ''Davis' brilliant media deconstructions are pointed and hilarious at the same time.'' - Kenneth Goldsmith ''The book of your fever dreams.'' - Slate on I, Tania The elderly take to the streets at night for illegal and cathartic electric scooter racing. (Think Two - Lane Blacktop but starring Abe Vigoda and Estelle Getty.) A copy editor suffers brain damage from West Nile virus and is suddenly filled with cannibalistic violence and award - winning minimalist poetry. (It's a little like Awakenings, but directed by David Cronenberg.) Mayor McCheese visits a sexually repressed British couple in the early 1970s and touches their lives forever. (Okay, try this: Pasolini's Teorema but with Mayor McCheese.) A Texas doctor transplants the mind of a meth - addicted convict into the body of a suburban web developer, resulting in America's first ''death - penalty case that turned into a custody case that turned into a right - to - die case.'' (It's like a hole drilled in your head and five HBO original movies poured in all at once.) Startlingly original but anchored by vivid characters, Ronald Reagan, My Father weaves all these ideas, and more, into a bleakly hilarious vision that's both human and uncanny - as if Raymond Carver was marooned on Mars with ten hours to live.

32. The Case of Lady Sannox Medical Mysteries and Other Adventures - Arthur Conan Doyle

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 11.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

‘Excision of the wound, then?’

‘That is it. If it be on the finger, take the finger off. So said my father always. But think of where this wound is, and that it is my wife. It is dreadful!’…

‘It appears to be that or nothing,’ said [the doctor] brusquely. ‘It is better to lose a lip than a life.’

Best known for his immortal detective Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle also wrote many stories set in the world of medicine as well as engrossing tales of adventure. Set in plush Londonand on the wild moors and fells of rural England, these stories are peopled with a host of compelling characters: lunatics and loners; obsessed lovers; beautiful, mysterious women; and, of course,men of medicine.

In this collection, a surgeon is called out to draw poison from a wound inflicted by a mysterious dagger; a student at Oxford is pursued by an Egyptian mummy come to life; the surgeon of Hoyland finds himself threatened when a woman doctor sets up practice next door; and a scholar seeking solitude on the desolate coast of the Mansie Bay in Scotland finds his peace shattered when a shipwreck brings a beautiful young Russian girl to his doorstep.

Racy, engaging, thoughtful stories which have stood the test of time, The Case of Lady Sannox will appeal to all readers of fiction.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 25.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Robert Boswell's extraordinary range grips us at full tilt in this crackling new collection. Set mainly in small, gritty American cities, each of these stories is a world unto itself. When two marriages end, one by death, the other divorce, the two wives, lifelong friends, become strangers to one another. A young man's obsession with visiting a fortune-teller leaves him nearly homeless. And in the unforgettable title story, a man recounts the summer he spent on a mountain with a loose band of slackers, living in a borrowed house, abstaining from all drugs (other than mushrooms and beer) - and ultimately asking just what kind of harm we can do to one another. Boswell's unexpectedly affecting characters and exuberant prose make The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards a book to celebrate.....ROBERT BOSWELL is the author of five novels, most recently Century's Son; two previous short-story collections; and a collection of essays, The Half-Known World: On Writing Fiction. He teaches creative writing at New Mexico State University, the University of Houston, and in the Warren Wilson College MFA Program.
