BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA, Allison, Dorothy
144 Allison, Dorothy BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA
Plume 1993 0452269571 / 9780452269576 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Greenville County, South Carolina, a wild, lush place, is home to the Boatwright family-rough-hewn men who drink hard and shoot up each other's trucks, and indomitable women who marry young and age all too quickly. At the heart of this astonishing novel is Ruth Anne Boatwright, known simply as Bone, a South Carolina bastard with an annotated birth certificate to tell the tale. Observing everything with the mercilessly keen eye of a child, Bone finds herself caught in a family triangle that will test the loyalty of her mother, Anney. Her stepfather, Daddy Glen, calls Bone "cold as death, mean as a snake, and twice as twisty," yet Anney needs Glen. At first gentle with Bone, Daddy Glen becomes steadily colder and more furious-until their final, harrowing encounter, from which there can be no turning back.

145 Allison, Dorothy TWO OR THREE THINGS I KNOW FOR SURE
Dutton Adult 1995 0525939210 / 9780525939214 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A highly collectible first edition/printing, a tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions or markings, not price clipped an ex-library or a book of the month club edition; (SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR) Allison's much-praised novel Bastard Out of Carolina was inspired by her childhood in Greenville, S.C., but in this memoir, adapted from a performance piece, she cuts even closer to the bone. "We don't have a family Bible?" the author's fourth-grade self asks her aunt. "Child, some days we don't even have a family," comes the response. If Allison suffered horrors, notably rape by her stepfather when she was five, she has transmuted pain into stories, gaining control with maturity. Indeed, her title prefaces several hard-won aphorisms she uses to counterpoint her memories: "No one is as hard as my uncles had to pretend to be." Her mother was a beauty, as was her sister, but Dorothy, smart and plain, felt a legacy of ugliness, one she shook off slowly as her feminism and her heart led her to lesbian relationships, often painful, finally rewarding. She is now, in her 40s, a new mother, and her stories?and life?are a triumph of love over cruelty. Read it aloud and savor the rhythms.

A tight clean hardcover, no markings throughout: This is the era of Luke Skywalker's legacy: the Jedi Master has unified the order into a cohesive group of powerful Jedi Knights. But as the new era b egins, planetary interests threaten to disrupt this time of relative peace, and Luke is plagued with visions of an approaching darkness. Evil is risin g again-out of the best intentions-and it looks as if the legacy of the Sky walkers may come full circle. Honor and duty will collide with friendship a nd blood ties as the Skywalker and Solo clans find themselves on opposing s ides of an explosive conflict with potentially devastating repercussions fo r both families, for the Jedi order, and for the entire galaxy. When a mission to uncover an illegal missile factory on the planet Adumar e nds in a violent ambush-from which Jedi Knight Jacen Solo and his protégé a nd cousin, Ben Skywalker, narrowly escape with their lives-it's the most al arming evidence yet that sparks of political unrest are threatening to igni te into total rebellion. The governments of numerous worlds are chafing und er the strict regulations of the Galactic Alliance, and diplomatic efforts to enforce compliance are failing. Fearing the worst, the Alliance readies a preemptive display of military might in a bid to bring the rogue worlds i n line before an uprising erupts. The designated target of this exercise: p lanet Corellia-renowned for the brash independence and renegade spirit that have made its favorite son, Han Solo, a legend.

Bantam Books 1999 0553574183 / 9780553574180 Paperback Near Fine 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Book 9 in the exciting series! The X-wing fighter pilots have earned their reputation as the Rebel Allianc e's ultimate strike force by overwhelming enemies with their rapid-fire ass aults. But now they are about to embark on a diplomatic mission that will p rove to be even more hazardous than all-out combat.... The neutral world of Adumar has decided to pick a side in the war to control the galaxy. Delegates from both the New Republic and the Empire have been invited to Adumar, and each camp will be given a chance to plead its government's case. But there is one small catch: since the Adumari prize military skill above all else, they insist that both delegations be composed exclusively of fighter pilots. For pilot Wedge Antilles and his company, it's an unfamiliar exercise in diplomacy--and one that's filled with unexpected peril. For once they arrive, the X-wing pilots are challenged by Adumar's fierce warriors and attacked by Imperial assassins bent on eliminating all competition. But these challenges pale in comparison to the threat posed by a rogue Republic agent...one who is determined to win Adumar's allegiance once and for all--even if it costs the X-wing pilots their lives.

155 Alten, Steven MEG: A NOVEL OF DEEP TERROR
Bantam Books, Incorporated 1997 0553840169 / 9780553840162 Paperback Very Good 
In a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he's sure he saw but still can't prove exists -- Carcha rodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average p rehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosauru s rex in seconds. Written off as a crackpot, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him h is life. With a Ph.D. in paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years t heorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feed s at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to g et him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub. Diving deeper than he ever has be fore, Taylor will face terror like he's never imagined, and what he finds c ould turn the tides bloody red until the end of time.

POSTMODERNISMS NOW: ESSAYS ON CONTEMPORANEITY IN THE ARTS (LITERATURE AND P HILOSOPHY), Altieri, Charles
157 Altieri, Charles POSTMODERNISMS NOW: ESSAYS ON CONTEMPORANEITY IN THE ARTS (LITERATURE AND P HILOSOPHY)
Pennsylvania State Univ Pr ( 1998 0271018046 / 9780271018041 Paperback Near Fine 
A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-lib book: Postmodernism today is driven by a set of theoretical stances that grow increasingly problematic. But as the theoretical contradictions emerge, it becomes possible to contrast this theoretical discourse to the ambitions that initially led writers and artists to pursue their version of postmodern perspectives. So this book explores what remains viable and valuable in some representative versions of what these writers and artists created. Altieri begins with an essay defining five basic contradictions in postmodern theory and outlining specific artistic strategies for dwelling with and within those contradictions. Part Two then sets the historical stage with two essays one focusing on the efforts to overthrow late modernism by Jasper Johns and John Ashbery, the other tracing the emergence of a logic of contingency in the poetics of Robert Creeley, Frank O'Hara, and Sylvia Plath. With Part Three the focus shifts to essays proposing different value frameworks for postmodern poets, frameworks that range from moral philosophy to the resources of the tradition of love poetry. Part Four turns to visual artists first engaging the efforts to politicize the postmodern in the 1980s, then showing how Frank Stella's work can be put in dialogue with that of Jacques Derrida. Finally, the book swallows its own tail by proposing an argument that the only version of the sublime that today does not collapse into self-congratulation is the sublime of self-disgust.Postmodernism Now holds out the possibility that the arts have been America s richest negotiations of postmodernity, an

Times Books 2011 1250001730 / 9781250001733 Paperback Very Good 
A Harvard-trained economist's startling predictions reveal critical challen ges in the decades ahead, helping individuals, businesses, and governments to make smarter decisions As individuals, companies, and countries struggle to recover from the econo mic crisis, many are narrowly focused on forecasts for the next week, month , or quarter. Yet they should be asking what the global economy will look l ike in the years to come-where will the long-term risks and opportunities a rise? These are the questions that Daniel Altman confronts in his provocati ve and indispensable book. The fate of the global economy, Altman argues, will be determined by deeper factors than those that move markets from moment to moment. His incisive a nalysis brings together hidden trends, societal pressures, and policy endga mes to make twelve surprising but logical predictions about the years ahead . And his forecasts for the future raise a pressing question for today: Wit h so many challenges awaiting us, are our political and economic institutio ns up to the task? Outrageous Fortunes tells which industries will grow, which economies will crumble, which investments will pay off, and where the next big crisis may occur. Altman's carefully reasoned text is an essential guide for the road ahead.

In 1943, America thought it had rounded up all the German spies on its soil .

Originally recruited into MI5 to pose as a double agent, he's been telling Germans that he'd do anything to free his wife, a prisoneer of a Polish concentration camp. This happens to be true. The question is: how much would he really do to set her free? Whe re are his loyalties exactly? As the two spies play cat-and-mouse across th ree countries, the ambiguities deepen, each figure showing new sides, each action providing new twists, until at last both agents are swept into a ser ies of climaxes as breathtakingly unpredictable as they are inevitable. --T his text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
