Richard Menzies has logged a quarter of a million miles on his vintage Volkswagon bus in pursuit of pictures and unusual stories. His favorite destination is Nevada, which encloses more open public land than any other state in the lower forty-eight. "Nevada's backcountry is sparsely populated yet surprisingly rich in diversity," he writes. "Her social fabric is a colorful tapestry of cultures and ethnicities, fringed by eccentrics who simply defy categorization. Think of the Silver State as a haven for those irregular souls who could never be content with a nine-to-five job or a three bedroom, split-level in suburbia."Passing Through is a compilation of the most memorable "misfits" Menzies has encountered in the course of his peripatetic wanderings across the American Outback.

From the national bestselling author of Waiting in Vain and Satisfy My Soul comes a sexy, witty collection of connected stories set on San Carlos, a tiny island with an old volcano in the Caribbean Sea. Spanning the early 1900s up to modern times, the stories trace the intersecting lives of travelers, expatriates, and local folks in ways that shock, illuminate, and reveal. From the American photographer who finds her world disturbed by new forms of love and lust, to a charismatic priest confronted by the earthly perks of fame and stardom, the diverse mix of characters are united by the universal search for love and understanding—a challenge on an island simmering with issues of politics, power, and race. Written with poetic grace and titillating candor, each story shines against its own tableau—World War II, the rise of Fidel Castro, Mt. Pelée devastating Martinique, import-export trading, Bob Marley in the days before his music echoed all around the world. As men and women fall in love, marry and remarry, face moral conflicts and new identities, the volcano sees it all. From plantation days to the roots of revolution, it is a silent witness to the turbulent century that engulfs this tiny island of eternal humor, passion, and allure. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Little do they all know, a horrible murderer has escaped from prison just as the small town is about to get hit with a record blizzard. But the trusting innocence of these small-town people will prove to be their undoing, for they cannot conceive the likes of the stranger they are helping on that snowy night. Rick and Donna Welk are a young married couple who are looking to start life anew after suffering a tragedy. That restart they are after soon comes in the form of a cabin resort up for sale near the Appalachian Trail, a chance to turn a love of nature and hiking into a career, a chance to meet all sorts of interesting people from around the country and the world, and a chance to leave their old, painful life behind. Specifically, Thompson Trails, Virginia, is a lovely little-town out in the foothills that make up one of the bookends of the Appalachian Trail, a quaint country burg full of friendly faces, fine food, and scenery that seemed to fall straight off a postcard on every street corner. Then came the blizzard. Big storms tend to bring winds of change sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. This record snowfall for Thompson Trails blew something very, very bad into town. Rick and Donna had just finished prepping the cabins when one more guest managed to make it into the main lodge before the storm. This gentleman didn't have a reservation, didn't have any plans for hiking or skiing, and had no interests in seeing the sights, those with dark, sharp eyes that seem to burn a hole through your soul never do. Despite Donna insisting Rick not judge a book by its cover, Rick can't shake the feeling that something isn't right with their guest. No need to worry about the weirdo. He's just passing through.

Just Passing Through is the story of a German family caught up in the political maelstrom of the Third Reich. The author’s mother was born in Frankfurt on Main into a middle-class family and at age eighteen married a Jewish businessman with whom she had two children. When the Nazis came to power and began to persecute the Jews, the couple got a divorce and while he left for America taking their son with him, their daughter remained in Germany with her mother. Unable to remarry because she was classified as a non-Aryan and to keep her daughter from being caught up in the Holocaust, the author’s mother had four more children—all by state sanctioned Aryan fathers. In her affection and care, she was partial to the author but indifferent and abusive toward his younger siblings. After the war, the author’s half-sister immigrated to America and brought over the rest of the family. In a section entitled Three Lives, the author discusses his ancestors, the stormy relationships among the family members, and their different experiences in pursuit of their fortunes on two continents. The work begins with A German Childhood in which the author describes his adventures during the Second World War, including the apocalyptic firebombing of his hometown of Stuttgart by the western Allies, and his first years after the war in Germany and the United States.

"In Paradise I stumbled onto a dead body, found my new mother, and was almost murdered." In the fall of 1989, young Angela Kiln and her father move to the slowly dying town of Paradise. Once they settle into small town life, Angela and her father, a high school teacher, find that the town isnt the only thing dying so, apparently, are students. As Angela and her father seek the truth behind the deaths, they will also face the truth about their own deepest beliefs. Part suspenseful mystery, part sentimental journey, Passing Through Paradise is an alternately funny, gripping, and frightening account of a young girl, her still-grieving father, and a town that refuses to recognize the future. Filled with an unforgettable cast of characters, Passing Through Paradise dramatically reveals the best and worst of human nature, illuminated against a scathing indictment of an American small town. This new edition of Passing Through Paradise includes a discussion guide for book clubs. Other novels that take place in Schreibers Ironwood County include Hillcrest Journal and Life on the Fly. "Passing through Paradise is tough to put down. The themes are masterfully interwoven." Ruth Hanson, Byron Review " . . . a suspenseful story told with insight, humor, conviction, and compassion." Andrew Johanson, Paradise Post, Ironwood County, Minnesota "Schreiber has a wide range of imagination and the talent to put it into words. . . . His imagination invents word pictures that spark the mind to envision a screen larger than Hollywood is capable of." News-Enterprise, December 1, 2004 Helpful Link: Schreiber has posted some of his published articles, essays, and poems along with book group discussion questions for Passing Through Paradise at John Schreibers Books
