  • Chasing a Flawed Sun

    by Daniel McGhee
    Chasing a Flawed Sun is a harrowing story of narrowly escaping personal destruction, a life in prison—and death over and over again. It’s a young mans story of years spent avoiding cold, hard truths in pursuit of the warmth and comfort of heroin in a spoon. Daniel writes, “There is a sense of security I get from the sun. It brings me hope, brightness, energy and warmth. The soft kiss of the sun upon my skin cradles me. It blankets my body in a sense of comfort, and I spend as much time in it as... more
  • We Died in Water

    by Meg Flores
    This is a memoir that faces how every love story reflects the one before it. Like waves, people crash into each other before pulling back. I have always known this kind of breaking. First, my father left my mother. And, in the same way, someone left me. I have felt this flux endlessly. A shattering. A sameness. Then, loving you changed everything. WE DIED IN WATER is nonlinear and poetic, insisting that the act of recollection puts one’s heart in a prism, a place of distortion and vivid beaut... more

    by Guy Mueller

Mu... more

  • I Can't Believe I Lived The Whole Thing

    by Howie Cohen
    It was the golden age of advertising and Howie Cohen’s Alka Seltzer commercials had the whole world saying, “I can't believe I ate the whole thing” and “Try it, you'll like it.” In this fun, fast-paced and often hilarious memoir, Howie gives us a front row seat to those amazing revolutionary times: How pot and the pill opened the doors (and everything else) to sexual and creative freedom; the creative takeover by mensch-y Jewish copywriters and macho Italian art directors; the disruption of ad c... more

  • Rescue Meez

    by Siri Zwemke
    Rescue Meez is the story of how I went from crazy cat lady to director of a non-profit cat rescue group that rescued over 13,000 cats in 20 years. It's a lighthearted, humorous read of some of the mistakes we made along the way and how we learned and grew from them. I face rifle-wielding hillbillies, swim with cats, do the dance of the dead mouse and catch flying ferals as I learn what not to do when running a cat rescue.
