Jeff Baker is granted the gift of eternal youth. However, it's not all it seems . . . It is 2040 and, after decades of research, we can finally rejuvenate a human being. At seventy-eight years old, Jeff Baker - renowned inventor and philanthropist - has given the world much of his creative genius. He's therefore selected as first choice for this gift. At first, rejuvenation feels like a miracle, until the glow begins to fade. Personal relationships start to break down and the world waits for more brilliant new work. Living the dream will come at a cost, but can Jeff pay the price?

My Misspent Youth is an incisive collection that marked the start of a new millennium and became a cult classic, from the editor of Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed and the author of The Unspeakable An essayist in the tradition of Joan Didion, Meghan Daum is one of the most celebrated nonfiction writers of her generation, widely recognized for her fresh, provocative approach with which she unearths the hidden fault lines in the American landscape. From her well remembered New Yorker essays about the financial demands of big-city ambition and the ethereal, strangely old-fashioned allure of cyber-relationships to her dazzlingly hilarious riff in Harper's about musical passions that give way to middle-brow paraphernalia, Daum delves into the center of things while closely examining the detritus that spills out along the way. With precision and well-balanced irony, Daum implicates herself as readily as she does the targets that fascinate and horrify her.

In 1967, following my return from the Antarctic, I decided to have my 'Antarctic Journal' typed with a view to having it published. The mission failed despite the fact that Sir Vivian Fuchs, then Director of the British Antarctic Survey, liked what he was able to read of the 'book' and even offered me the services of his literary agent.

In 1959, at the age of eleven, Michael Keith left a relatively stable life with his mother and sisters in Albany, New York, and surreptitiously set off for California with his irresponsible alcoholic father. For the rest of Michael's childhood, the two crisscrossed America, perpetually en route to someplace else. His memoir, told in the fresh, funny, world-wise voice of the young boy he once was, describes their bizarre encounters hitchhiking the nation's highways. In the rundown rooming houses and homeless missions where they hole up as Michael's father works odd jobs to make enough money for them to move on, or in the AA meetings they attend in every city for a decent doughnut, we glimpse a different America. Pushed onward by Michael's unceasing thirst for new adventures and his father's dreams of the next better place, the careworn twosome live far outside convention. But despite their peculiar, often dysfunctional life, there is real love between this father and son, and they share the glorious freedom of the peripatetic life. That such happiness exists in a lonely marginal universe doesn't overshadow the fact that a Greyhound bus is the closest Michael comes to experiencing the idea of home. THE NEXT BETTER PLACE explores the fine line between wanderlust and compulsion, between running away and arriving, and leaves us with the understanding that the journey is often more powerful than the destination.

Vodka Flavored Tears

Vodka-Flavored Tears is a memoir told through twenty-six stories about growing up on the South Side of Chicago and trying to navigate through the stormy waters of childhood, adolescence, and the author's early twenties. It's a book about taking chances and making mistakes, and speaks to the part of humanity that identifies with the pain that we each go through—as we sift through ourselves—in search of a place in this world.The essays were written in order to cope with the residual effects of having to get sober and live life without the crutch that Hillegonds had leaned on for so long. He'd been running from the past for years—a volatile period that left him with a criminal record, a broken heart, and a beautiful baby girl. The stories remind us that life is short, childhood is fleeting, and we need to ride this thing until the wheels fall off.Not everyone gets expelled from high school for pranks, or ends up in jail for felonies, or lands in rehab for vodka and cocaine. Most of us were never barred from Canada, kicked out of Colorado, or homeless, desperate, and enraged. But we all know what it's like to hurt and love and lose, and do the best we can to live our lives with some semblance of dignity. We all know what it's like to fall down, pick ourselves up, and continue putting one foot in front of the other.Vodka-Flavored Tears testifies that the road less traveled can indeed be daunting, but can also prove far more fulfilling than the beaten path.
