Pitch-black humor and brutal social commentary from the Tony Award-winning playwright: “Relentlessly fierce, relentlessly funny.”—Ben Brantley, The New York Times Looking for a little rest and time by herself, Betty rents a summer share at the beach. But Betty's luck turns when this sensible Everywoman gets drawn into the chaotic world of some very unsavory housemates: her friend Trudy, who talks too much; the lewd, semi-naked Buck, who tries to have sex with everyone; and Keith, a serial killer who hides in his room with a mysterious hatbox. With sand between her toes, walking a thin line between sanity and survival, poor Betty will leave her summer vacation more terrorized than tan—in this Obie Award-winning play from Christopher Durang, who “proves to be every bit as sharp and caustic as England’s Joe Orton” (David Kaufman, New York Daily News). “Not only wickedly funny but a commentary on the state of American culture.”—Curtis Ellis, MSNBC “A comedian whose fury takes the form of farce.”—John Lahr, The New Yorker

My Summer Vacation is an autobiographical short story about nine wild and wonderful days on a camping trip with the author, his best friend Don, his Dad, Mr. Hall, and their family dog Sarge in 1949. The transportation was a 1928 Model A Ford, 2dr that had a top speed of maybe 45 miles per hour. The trip started in Rawlins, Wyoming and covered more than 400 miles all the way to Yellowstone National Park and back home to Rawlins. It turned out to be one of the greatest adventures of a young boys life. Excerpt: Be Careful When You Play With Firecrackers! Mr. Hall occasionally would have a little fun by throwing a fire cracker out on his side when a fancy car went by. He was kind of intimidated by fancy cars. I think it was because he had to drive the Model A which even then was more than twenty years old. It was fun watching them slow down to check their tires and stuff. Don and I also had become very good at laying them down just right as we called it and we were getting a little cocky. Don spotted a flashy 49 Buick coming at us and he said Lets get this guy! Don took a couple puffs on the cigarette to get it real hot and I waited with the firecracker in my left hand for just her right moment.Now! Don said, and I touched the fuse to the cigarette and immediately flung it right past Mr. Halls nose out the drivers side window! Suddenly everything seemed to start happening in slow motion!....................

Betty Kowalski isn't looking forward to the holidays. She just can't seem to find Christmas in her heart. There's church, of course. But who can she bake for these days? And who would care whether or not she pulled out the Christmas decorations? Her new neighbor just adds to the problem. He's doing home improvements that don't appear to be improving much of anything. These days when Betty looks out the window, she sees a beat-up truck, a pile of junk, lots of blue tarps, and--horror of horrors--an old pink toilet. But when a mangy dog appears at her doorstep, the stage is set for Betty to learn a very important lesson about what Christmas is all about. This contemporary Christmas story is a timely yet gentle reminder that God can work miracles through something as seemingly insignificant as a little brown dog.

The Olden Time Stories For Betty

This project is based on the reminiscences of Elizabeth Hawley Bowen Everett (1857-1940). She originally compiled these stories, records, and reflections about her life and her family in response to curiosity expressed by her grand-daughter, Betty Bowen Hanes. Her collection is called, The Olden Time or Stories for Betty. As we immersed ourselves in this family’s history, we became convinced that the experiences of its various members represented those of countless Americans. Their participation in this country’s struggle for independence, the western migration, the establishment of towns on the prairie, in school teaching from Maine to Mississippi and Nebraska, make this story significant beyond its interest to the family’s descendents. In consequence, we made the decision to annotate the collection in an effort to aid the modern reader with obscure references and to provide some historical background. We have presented Elizabeth Hawley’s own work with only the slightest editing and occasional rearrangement, and we have clearly identified our additions as footnotes, by brackets or a change in typeface. Several observations should be mentioned here. The influence of New England culture on the prairie society is marked. The interest in education is attested by both the number of schools established in these small towns and the number of students who enrolled. Women and girls attended school as well as boys and young men. Women taught, even in male preparatory schools, and ran their own schools. Religion, in the form of protestant denominations, was a strong influence and along with it temperance societies. Little distinction was made among the various protestant traditions as long as the preaching was “faithful” and “effective,” for the church of one’s family might well be unrepresented in a new town. Customs of dress and manners were transported from New England along with the settlers. Land divisions took similar forms as did the governing bodies of townships. As a family history, this is an odyssey of school teachers. Their devotion to education is represented first in Maine, by The Reverend Reuben Nason’s Gorham Academy, now located on the campus of the University of Southern Maine, and finally, at the end of the western journey, by the presence of the family home facing the campus of the University of Nebraska. There were teachers in each generation, both men and women, in preparatory schools and seminaries from Maine and New York to Mississippi, Iowa, and Nebraska and, beginning with Reuben Nason’s graduation from Harvard in 1802, students at Bowdoin and Dartmouth Colleges, at the University of Illinois and finally the University of Nebraska, where the young Hawleys studied. We offer this collection of memories, stories, and anecdotes to all who are interested in this period of American history and to the descendents of these hardy folk.

Male-female relationships are at the center of this collection of thirteen stories. Roughly half the stories take place in the United States and half in Chile. A common thread runs through these keenly sensitive stories: the women take the initiative, and the men, willingly or unwillingly, follow their lead. At one end of the spectrum, Ari, 14 years old, is awakening to his sexuality, and at the other, Al, almost 70 and a former college professor, sees a potential affair with a young woman as his last opportunity to indulge his taste for sexual mischief. Along the way we also meet Dora, a free-spirited woman who, thirty years earlier, was in hot pursuit of Sergio, a married man, but who now holds a secret he is determined to uncover; Josh, home for the summer after having completed his freshman year in college, who is torn between family expectations and his attraction for Sofia, a Colombian immigrant; and a gallery of other unique characters.

John McPhee's twenty-sixth book is a braid of personal history, natural history, and American history, in descending order of volume. Each spring, American shad-Alosa sapidissima-leave the ocean in hundreds of thousands and run heroic distances upriver to spawn. McPhee--a shad fisherman himself--recounts the shad's cameo role in the lives of George Washington and Henry David Thoreau. He fishes with and visits the laboratories of famous ichthyologists; he takes instruction in the making of shad darts from a master of the art; and he cooks shad in a variety of ways, delectably explained at the end of the book. Mostly, though, he goes fishing for shad in various North American rivers, and he "fishes the same way he writes books, avidly and intensely. He wants to know everything about the fish he's after--its history, its habits, its place in the cosmos" (Bill Pride, The Denver Post). His adventures in pursuit of shad occasion the kind of writing--expert and ardent--at which he has no equal.

According to Sprague, doubling in Lessing's novels is a perfect correlative for the complexity and contradiction Lessing perceives as central to the private and collective human experience. Her doubles and multiples not only indicate the fracturing or the formation of identity but they also are among the several strategies used to project complex private and societal concerns. This study of Lessing's dialectical imagination extends and revises earlier feminist approaches. Originally published in 1987.
