Names, dates, and places change, but concepts remain the same, has been the philosophy of James Garrett for many years. Everlasting love shared through the centuries is one of those concepts. The time in history, or the location, does not matter. There may be a focal point, for example a mansion. Though the mansion is immobile, it is a connection point for everlasting love which is shared through the centuries by individuals and groups.That concept is revealed within The Mansion Stories. In his second novel, a collection of three unique yet connected stories, the award-winning poet has woven his poetry within the prose to fully reveal the feelings and emotions of the characters. The poems add texture to the loving narration. This technique is a departure from his earlier novel, which was made up of many letters written about love connected to the City of Benicia. But, he still continues to write based on experiences he has had throughout his life. In The Mansion Stories each story is an adventure unto itself but the thread of love flows through them all and ties them together. The authors first novel Benicia and Letters of Love continues to reach hearts. If you enjoy enchanting stories of love, you will want to read The Mansion Stories. Perhaps it will touch the romantic soul in you.

American Letters

Jackson Pollock, the great American artist who revolutionized twentieth-century art with his canvases of dripping paint, was one of five sons from Cody, Wyoming, who grew up in the period from the late 1920s to the late 1940s, during the Great Depression and the Second World War. Jackson and his brothers and parents were often apart, travelling for work, for study, or just for the sake of travelling. But they kept in touch by writing letters Ð a constant flow of correspondence that offers not only a valuable insight into the formation of one of America’s most influential artists but also a unique portrait of America itself during one of the most momentous periods of its history. These letters, most of which are published in this volume for the first time, show that the Pollock children took an early interest in two major themes: politics and art. Their interest in painting was stimulated by Thomas Hart Benton, who taught at the New York Art Students League and who infected them with his passion and commitment. Jackson’s older brother Charles was most strongly influenced by Benton’s left-wing beliefs, and most determined to bring art and politics together. Jackson himself was less focused and more complex; he had pronounced mystical leanings and, while he searched for his own way to express his artistic ambitions, he enjoyed life, hitting the open road, jumping from train to train, finding himself thrown out of school and even ending up in prison for a while, all the time writing about his experiences and his feelings in his letters. This remarkable volume of correspondence will be enjoyed by anyone interested in Jackson Pollock and modern art, as well as anyone interested in twentieth-century America. The volume includes original works of art by Charles Pollock and an Introduction by Michael Leja, an expert on abstract expressionism and the work of Jackson Pollock.

"You ought to see Livy & me, now-a-days—you never saw such a serenely satisfied couple of doves in all your life. I spent Jan 1, 2, 3 & 5 there, & left at 8 last night. With my vile temper & variable moods, it seems an incomprehensible miracle that we two have been right together in the same house half the time for a year & a half, & yet have never had a cross word, or a lover's 'tiff,' or a pouting spell, or a misunderstanding, or the faintest shadow of a jealous suspicion. Now isn't that absolutely wonderful? Could I have had such an experience with any other girl on earth? I am perfectly certain I could not. . . . We are to be married on Feb. 2d." So begins Volume 4 of the letters, with Samuel Clemens anticipating his wedding to Olivia L. Langdon. The 338 letters in this volume document the first two years of a loving marriage that would last more than thirty years. They recount, in Clemens's own inimitable voice, a tumultuous time: a growing international fame, the birth of a sickly first child, and the near-fatal illness of his wife. At the beginning of 1870, fresh from the success of The Innocents Abroad, Clemens is on "the long agony" of a lecture tour and planning to settle in Buffalo as editor of the Express. By the end of 1871, he has moved to Hartford and is again on tour, anticipating the publication of Roughing It and the birth of his second child. The intervening letters show Clemens bursting with literary ideas, business schemes, and inventions, and they show him erupting with frustration, anger, and grief, but more often with dazzling humor and surprising self-revelation. In addition to Roughing It, Clemens wrote some enduringly popular short pieces during this period, but he saved some of his best writing for private letters, many of which are published here for the first time.

Extraordinary stories of crime, passion, and adventure from The Atavist magazine, the trailblazing leader in longform narrative writing. Since its inception, The Atavist Magazine has been a pioneer of today’s longform journalism renaissance. Now, Love and Ruin brings ten of the magazine’s most astonishing stories into print for the first time. These writers have taken reporting to the extremes of nature, turned inward to explore what makes us human, and burrowed deep into archives in search of mysterious figures and events more surprising than anything in contemporary fiction. What unifies these nonfiction masterpieces is the keen eye with which their writers capture the details of human experience, and their knack for hooking us into a story and never letting go. With stories by: James Verini • Leslie Jamison • Vanessa Veselka • Jon Mooallem • Cris Beam • Brooke Jarvis • David Dobbs • Adam Higginbotham • Evan Ratliff • Matthew Shaer

When brothers Ethan and Hosea Grosh left Pennsylvania in 1849, they joined throngs of men from all over the world intent on finding a fortune in the California Gold Rush. Their search for wealth took them from San Francisco into the gold country and then over the Sierra into Nevada’s Gold Canyon, where they placer-mined for gold and discovered a deposit of silver. The letters they sent back to their family offer vivid commentaries on the turbulent western frontier, the diverse society of the Gold Rush camps, and the heartbreaking labor and frustration of mining. Their lively descriptions of Gold Canyon provide one of the earliest accounts of life in what would soon become the fabulously wealthy Comstock Mining District. The Groshes’ letters are rich in color and important historical details. Generously annotated and with an introduction that provides a context for the brothers’ career and the setting in which they tried to make their fortune, these documents powerfully depict the often harsh realities of Gold Rush life and society.

U S Army Life 1941 1945 In the Letters of Theodore Pattengill Foster

Theodore P. Foster loved to receive letters-more so at boot camp than anywhere he had ever been. He corresponded with twenty-three people from 1941 to 1945-his parents, his sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins and close friends. These letters were saved by his parents, Theodore G. and Margaret P. Foster. The collection of letters came into my possession in the late 1990's. They sat in a Hollinger box at my home for twenty years. I have extensively footnoted the collection in order to identify the people, places, events, objects and obsolete terms mentioned in the letters. A big drawback to transcribing the letters was Theodore P. Foster's poor spelling. I wanted the reader to read his words exactly as he had written them-spelling and punctuation mistakes included. My father never learned the spelling rule, "I Before E Except After C" and wrote 'recieve' hundreds of times in his letters. I think you will enjoy reading these interesting and informative letters.

ODYSSEY OF THE SOUL Man may never reach the heights For which he was intended Until he finds his way to God, From whom he has descended. He tries to find Him in the secrets Of the sea and of the land And in the stars that glisten Like the diamonds in God’s hand. His restless soul keeps searching on In every way it can, Then he discovers part of God Lies in the heart of man. Only love can fan this spark Into such a flame That it will lift his soul up To the source from which it came. Written by Thelma Gaw
