Joe offers her a deal: if she marries him and takes his name, no Pacific Northwest hit man is going to find her.

Which, once Pam and Joe move in together and the sparks begin to fly, is easier said than done. “When a classy architect joins in a marriage of convenience with a slightly scruffy bartender to hide from a hit man out to kill her, frustration runs high, making both want to CRY UNCLE and get on with the loving.

Two sisters can't stand to live together, but can't bear to be apart. One worships the flashy world of Nashville, the other is a devout Pentecostal. One falls into the lap of any man, the other is afraid to even date. One gets pregnant in a flash, the other desperately wants to have child. This is what's at the heart of Silas House's third, masterful novel, which tells the story of Easter and Anneth, tragically left parentles as children, who must raise themselves and each other in their small coal-mining town. Easter is deeply religious, keeps a good home, believes in tradition, and is intent on rearing her wild younger sister properly. Anneth is untamable, full of passion, determined to live hard and fast. It's only a matter of time before their predilections split their paths and nearly undo their bond. How these two women learn to overcome their past, sacrifice deeply for each other, and live together again in the only place that matters is the story of The Coal Tattoo. Silas House's work has been described as compelling, seamless, breathtaking, heartbreaking, eloquent, stunningly beautiful, and exquisite. In The Coal Tattoo, he raises the bar once again.

Mock Modernism

How was the modernist movement understood by the general public when it was first emerging? This question can be addressed by looking at how modernist literature and art were interpreted by journalists in daily newspapers, mainstream magazines like Punch and Vanity Fair, and literary magazines. In the earliest decades of the movement – before modernist artists were considered important, and before modernism’s meaning was clearly understood – many of these interpretations took the form of parodies. Mock Modernism is an anthology of these amusing pieces, the overwhelming majority of which have not been in print since the first decades of the twentieth century. They include Max Beerbohm’s send-up of Henry James; J.C. Squire’s account of how a poet, writing deliberately incomprehensible poetry as a hoax, became the poet laureate of the British Bolshevist Revolution; and the Chicago Record-Herald’s account of some art students’ “trial” of Henri Matisse for “crimes against anatomy.” An introduction and headnotes by Leonard Diepeveen highlight the usefulness of these pieces for comprehending media and public perceptions of a form of art that would later develop an almost unassailable power.

"Zell Miller's entire life has been one of hope. Only seventeen days old when his father died, Zell was raised by his mother in Young Harris, Georgia." "Watching his mother build their house stone by stone, he learned the ethics of love and hard work and commitment. Most of all, he learned of hope, the hope for a better today and a better tomorrow." "His training in the Marine Corps and his time as a professor of history prepared him for a life in public service. Miller served sixteen years as lt. governor before becoming Georgia's 79th governor. On July 13, 1992, despite a severe strep infection, he delivered an unforgettable keynote address at the Democratic National Convention. With people on the floor holding signs that read "Give 'em hell, Zell," Miller brought hope to millions with his rhetorical gifts." "As governor, he has brought hope to children all over the state in the Pre-Kindergarten program, installed a lottery designed to fund education, particularly the far-reaching HOPE scholarship program, addressed the crime issue, and administered a budget that led to cooking his own breakfast." "He's led the tenth largest state in the nation, administered a budget larger than most Fortune 500 companies, counseled the leader of the free world, met with U.S.S.R. foreign minister Eduard Shevardnadze in Moscow, had breakfast with Archbishop Desmond Tutu in Cape Town, South Africa, and delivered a critically acclaimed speech to thirty million viewers, but inside he is that mountain kid who was never more comfortable than when he was where he could go to a window and see those familiar mountains. This is the story of a man who loves Georgia, so much so that he has given his life to serving his state. It is the story of the man who gave Georgia HOPE."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
