Sait Faik may well be named "the Turkish Chekhov." In Turkey, critics and readers regard him as their finest short story writer. Since his death in 1954 at the age of forty-eight, his stature has grown on the strength of his narrative art, which is both realistic and whimsical with a poetic touch. Süha Oguzertem, a premier authority on Turkish fiction, writes in his introduction to Sleeping in the Forest that "As an anti-bourgeois writer and fierce democrat, Sait Faik has always sided with the underdog" and that no characters remain " 'common' or 'ordinary' once they enter Sait Faik's stories; his piercing gaze and thoughtful vision transform them lovingly into unique beings." Sait Faik's fiction ranges from the realistic to the surrealistic, from the romantic to the modern, from the cynical to the compassionate. With virtuosic skill, he captures the spirit and the spleen of the city of Istanbul and its environs. In evoking the mystery of that great metropolis through such ordinary characters as Armenian fishermen, Greek Orthodox priests, and the disillusioned and disfranchised, he creates for us a marvelous microcosm of tragicomedy. Few writers, in Turkey or elsewhere, command Sait Faik's mastery of the ironic. Sleeping in the Forest features twenty-two stories, an excerpt from a novella, and fifteen poems rendered into English by some of the best-known translators of Turkish literature. Sait Faik's chiaroscuro world is brought into focus by an introductory essay on utopian poetics and lyrical stylistics of this great Turkish writer. The book is a stimulating exploration into Turkish mood and milieu.

A Brief History of Camouflage, Thaisa Frank's critically acclaimed first fullscale collection of stories, established her reputation as one of those writers with a special gift for exploring the dreamlike abyss of distances, discontinuities and attractions across which contemporary relationships are negotiated. "This collection of stories", suggested Small Press Magazine, "brilliantly examines the detachment within intimacy which seems to plague men and women today". Frank's examination of the blurred lines between enchantment and illusion develops new magic-realist resonances in this second collection, which contains twenty-three stories as well as a novella -- all new writing, and all once again "oddly beautiful, hallucinatory, mysterious" (The Review of Contemporary Fiction) in its subtle calibration of the inner spaces and silences separating people, and the haunting undercurrents of feeling that hold them together. In the concluding novella, The Map Maker, those undercurrents exert an especially powerful tow, washing up a lost cargo of familial misunderstandings. Frank turns over objects left behind by the dead, bequeathed to the living to be stored in memory's "ambivalent archives".

There have been many books, movies, and even TV commercials featuring Neandertals--some serious, some comical. But what was it really like to be a Neandertal? How were their lives similar to or different from ours? In How to Think Like a Neandertal, archaeologist Thomas Wynn and psychologist Frederick L. Coolidge team up to provide a brilliant account of the mental life of Neandertals, drawing on the most recent fossil and archaeological remains. Indeed, some Neandertal remains are not fossilized, allowing scientists to recover samples of their genes--one specimen had the gene for red hair and, more provocatively, all had a gene called FOXP2, which is thought to be related to speech. Given the differences between their faces and ours, their voices probably sounded a bit different, and the range of consonants and vowels they could generate might have been different. But they could talk, and they had a large (perhaps huge) vocabulary--words for places, routes, techniques, individuals, and emotions. Extensive archaeological remains of stone tools and living sites (and, yes, they did often live in caves) indicate that Neandertals relied on complex technical procedures and spent most of their lives in small family groups. The authors sift the evidence that Neandertals had a symbolic culture--looking at their treatment of corpses, the use of fire, and possible body coloring--and conclude that they probably did not have a sense of the supernatural. The book explores the brutal nature of their lives, especially in northwestern Europe, where men and women with spears hunted together for mammoths and wooly rhinoceroses. They were pain tolerant, very likely taciturn, and not easy to excite. Wynn and Coolidge offer here an eye-opening portrait of Neandertals, painting a remarkable picture of these long-vanished people and providing insight, as they go along, into our own minds and culture.

In the summer of 1971, Dallas Green and Lonnie McKay made a spur-of-the-moment decision to leave their hot, dusty farming town and head south to Mexico in Lonnie's 1965 Chevy. They told each other they were going down there to find a friend who had disappeared a few years before, but the truth was that what they were really looking for was an escape from work, the draft, the war, and the prospect of having to finally grow up. Scott R. Larson has drawn on his own memories of growing up in the San Joaquin Valley to tell this story of two teenagers on the brink of manhood and their once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
