Biltmore Oswald may be seen as the original model for such later comic military characters as Popeye, Sad Sack, Beetle Bailey and Crock. Akin to his successors, Oswald was so hopelessly and shamelessly unqualified as a naval recruit, that the Navy accepted him simply to prove that if the Navy could make a sailor out of Biltmore, it could make a sailor out of anyone. This volume is the compilation of a weekly series that Thorne Smith wrote for the Naval Reservist journal The Broadside during WW1. Biltmore, bungling and inept, faced the humiliations and absurdities of Navy life with hilarious consequences. Drawn heavily from his wartime experience with the Navy, Smith's stories about Oswald were hugely popular among servicemen. The adventure stories about Biltmore Oswald, including the sequel Out 'O Luck: Biltmore Oswald Very Much At Sea, sold more than 70,000 copies. Biltmore Oswald (1918) was Smith's literary debut.

Tuplet lived in the Mortlock Islands, Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, and had missed out on a high school placing and tertiary education that would have allowed him to secure a high salary paying career in life. His quest for financial security in his disadvantaged position was realized when he befriended Sopoana’ Tela, the daughter of Pakeva the Sea Goddess, who gave him two gifts; diving and fishing skills to enhance his livelihood. Sopoana’ Tela had asked him not to tell anyone of their secret friendship, but Tuplet divulged the secret whilst drunk on Christmas Day after his first trip to Kieta on Mainland Bougainville. The gifts were forfeited and Tuplet went back to Kieta on the next boat to look for a job as there were no opportunities back home. In town, he soon realized that the top paying jobs were for the professionals and highly educated personnel, so he just accepted with regret his job as a laborer and lot in life. Tuplet’s story highlights the importance of education to a better career and a better life today and should hopefully impart that message to the targeted reader group of early to mid teenage group.

“Extraordinarily courageous; [Cronin] chronicles her journey to fit in and thrive with bravery and wit.”—O, The Oprah Magazine At the age of three, Eileen Cronin first realized that only she did not have legs. Her boisterous Catholic family accepted her situation as “God’s will,” treating her no differently than her ten siblings, as she “squiddled” through their 1960s Cincinnati home. But starting school, even wearing prosthetics, Cronin had to brave bullying and embarrassing questions. Thanks to her older brother’s coaching, she handled a classmate’s playground taunts with a smack from her lunchbox. As a teen, thrilled when boys asked her out, she was confused about what sexuality meant for her. She felt most comfortable and happiest relaxing and skinny dipping with her girlfriends, imagining herself “an elusive mermaid.” The cause of her disability remained taboo, however, even as she looked toward the future and the possibility of her own family. In later years, as her mother battled mental illness and denied having taken the drug thalidomide—known to cause birth defects—Cronin felt apart from her family. After the death of a close brother, she turned to alcohol. Eventually, however, she found the strength to set out on her own, volunteering at hospitals and earning a PhD in clinical psychology. Reflecting with humor and grace on her youth, search for love, and quest for answers, Cronin spins a shimmering story of self-discovery and transformation.

A transcendent tale of a woman's self-discovery—the New York Times–bestselling second work of fiction by the author of The Secret Life of Bees and the forthcoming novel The Book of Longings Inside the church of a Benedictine monastery on Egret Island, just off the coast of South Carolina, resides a beautiful and mysterious chair ornately carved with mermaids and dedicated to a saint who, legend claims, was a mermaid before her conversion. When Jessie Sullivan is summoned home to the island to cope with her eccentric mother’s seemingly inexplicable behavior, she is living a conventional life with her husband, Hugh, a life “molded to the smallest space possible.” Jessie loves Hugh, but once on the island, she finds herself drawn to Brother Thomas, a monk about to take his final vows. Amid a rich community of unforgettable island women and the exotic beauty of marshlands, tidal creeks, and majestic egrets, Jessie grapples with the tension of desire and the struggle to deny it, with a freedom that feels overwhelmingly right, and with the immutable force of home and marriage. Is the power of the mermaid chair only a myth? Or will it alter the course of Jessie’s life? What happens will unlock the roots of her mother’s tormented past, but most of all, it will allow Jessie to discover selfhood and a place of belonging as she explores the thin line between the spiritual and the erotic.
