Release Date: 2012-09-14
Genre: Humor

From the authors of the breakout bestseller All my friends are dead. and in the humorous vein of Go the F**k to Sleep comes a laugh-out-loud collection of bad advice that turns the children's alphabet book on its head. Adorable illustrated characters lead readers down a path of poor decision-making, and alphabetical, rhyming couplets offer terrible life lessons in which O is for opening things with your teeth, F is for setting Daddy's wallet on fire, and R is for Raccoon (but definitely not for rabies). With plenty of playfully disastrous choices lurking around every corner, this compendium of black humor may be terrible for actual children, but it's perfect for the common-senseless child in all adults.

I see dead people...and so does everyone else, because more and more teenagers who have returned from the grave are converging on the small town of Oakvale, Connecticut, inspired by the words the "voice" of Generation Dead, Tommy Williams, writes on his blog MySoCalledUndeath.com. Tommy's people-Mal, Karen, Sylvia, Takayuki, Tayshawn, Colette, Popeye, Melissa and the gang at the Haunted House-aren't zombies that want to eat your brains or feast on your entrails, they just want to do the same things everyone else does-create, make friends, play sports, have fun, fall in love-live. But not everyone in Oakvale-especially Reverend Mathers and his flock at One Life Ministries-is willing to stand idly by and let them do any of those things. Not when so many members of the community would approve of the undead being "reterminated" and sent back to the graves they worked so hard to climb out of... Generation Dead Book 4: My Best Friends Are Dead contains, for the first time in print: The collected My So-Called Undeath blog Generation Dead: Stitches Three brand new Generation Dead stories, and one new bonus story set in the world of Break My Heart 1,000 Times

But as their numbers keep on growing, so does the discomfort of the living people in the community. When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, her best friend and star of the football team, Adam, has conflicting emotions. And when Tommy decides to try out for the football team, it sets off a chain of events that escalates into deadly violence.

Some of My Best Friends Are Black

Author: Tanner Colby
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9780143123637
Release Date: 2013
Genre: History

This work chronicles America's troubling relationship with race through four interrelated stories: the transformation of a once-racist Birmingham school system; a Kansas City neighborhood's fight against housing discrimination; the curious racial divide of the Madison Avenue ad world; and a Louisiana Catholic parish's forty-year effort to build an integrated church. An exploration of race relations, this book offers a portrait of race in America. In a book that is part reportage, part history, part social commentary, the author explores why the civil rights movement ultimately produced such little true integration in schools, neighborhoods, offices, and churches, the very places where social change needed to unfold. Weaving together the personal, intimate stories of everyday people, black and white, he reveals the strange, sordid history of what was supposed to be the end of Jim Crow, but turned out to be more of the same with no name. He shows us how far we have come in our journey to leave mistrust and anger behind, and how far all of us have left to go.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Author: Tom Stoppard
Publisher: Faber & Faber
ISBN: 9780571301096
Release Date: 2013-04-18
Genre: Performing Arts

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play which, as it were, takes place in the wings of Hamlet, and finds both humour and poignancy in the situation of the ill-fated attendant lords. The National Theatre production in April 1967 made Tom Stoppard's reputation virtually overnight. Its wit, stagecraft and verbal verve remain as exhilarating as they were then and the play has become a contemporary classic. 'One of the most original and engaging of post-war plays.' Daily Telegraph
