Julia is very short for her age, but by the end of the summer she'll realize how big she is inside, where it counts. This is the summer she gets cast as a munchkin in a production of The Wizard of Oz. She hasn't ever thought of herself as a performer, but as Julia becomes friendly with the poised and wise Olive - an adult with dwarfism who doesn't let her size define her - and with a deeply artistic neighbour named Mrs. Chang, she finds that she may not be as tall as everyone else, but she more than deserves to hold her head high.

Table of Contents Introduction Recognizing an Addiction Symptoms of Alcoholism Some information about alcoholic addictions Harmful Side Effects of Alcoholism Myths and Stories about Alcohol Alcoholics Anonymous and Natural Cures Homeopathic Cures Meditation, "Mudras" Yoga Meditation Conclusion Appendix Author Bio Publisher Introduction A couple of days ago I went to meet a friend who is running a clinic to rehabilitate drug addicts and alcoholics. When I began to ask her professional advice, to tell me more about alcoholism, she laughed and told me, “you do not drink, nor do you smoke, you do not even drink tea or coffee, and you are going to be writing a book on alcoholism? These books are best left alone to people who have been through the experience to know what alcoholism really is, and what they have to go through, when they join our rehabilitation clinics.” This book is for all those people, who know somebody who is suffering from a so-called drinking problem. That is the euphemism for alcoholism because an alcoholic is never going to admit that he suffers from a problem”. I can take it or I can leave it”he declares. Unfortunately, people who smoke also say the same thing. But they cannot leave of smoking in the way alcoholics cannot leave off drinking. Also, I do not need to drink, or do some relaxing social drinking in order to talk about alcoholism, because all right, let me admit it, I have seen a large number of cases of alcoholics, or near alcoholics around me. Many relatives are not true alcoholics, but they do plenty of social drinking because they belong to a society where social drinking is accepted as a matter of tradition, culture, and even upbringing. More than 25 years ago, I was engaged to be married to a very nice Army officer who was charming, cultured, good-looking, and he had everything going for him. And then when we were talking together, he just admitted that he had this little problem. He indulged in social drinking with the rest of his friends, because he had to do it every evening in the mess. And it could lead to alcoholism, but as long as we got married and I was there to steady him, he could get this habit under control.

In 1940's New Jersey, Helen Schneider struggles not only with the uncertainties of life and love during war time, but also with the unique challenge of how to heed the insistent voices of the dead. Helen's childhood is marked with vivid premonitions, and as a young woman, her gift expands to include automatic writing and the rare ability to make spirits materialize. Her German grandmother, a sometimes fraudulent medium, urges her to learn the techniques that keep clients happy. The U. S. Army wants to employ Helen as a psychic spy, and they're willing to use threats to recruit her. Her boyfriend Billy disapproves of her freakish talent, and Helen fears the day may come when he asks her to choose between it and him. Helen, assailed by these battling demands, resolves to determine why the dead come to her and what to do about it. This historical tale of suspense and romance is rich with details that animate both the home front during World War II and the mysterious, eerily appealing realm of ghosts and spirit guides.

When the “counter-canon” itself becomes canonized, it’s time to reload. This is the notion that animates New Border Voices, an anthology of recent and rarely seen writing by Borderlands artists from El Paso to Brownsville—and a hundred miles on either side. Challenging the assumption that borderlands writing is the privileged product of the 1970s and ’80s, the vibrant community represented in this collection offers tasty bits of regional fare that will appeal to a wide range of readers and students. Among the contributions are: Introduction A “Southern Renaissance” for Texas Letters —José E. Limón The Texas-Mexico Border: This Writer’s Sense of Place —Rolando Hinojosa-Smith The Rain Parade —Paul Pedroza

This New York Times Notable Book is a heartwarming and humorous story of a girl growing up as her family falls apart in the 1960s South. Sally Maulden’s parents are getting a divorce, and she has been banished to her grandparents’ home in Coldwater, Arkansas. No one seems to really care about Sally, unless you count her pet chicken . . . But in her new town, she soon finds love offered to her from unexpected sources—including a strip-tease dancer at the Silver Moon. And once she’s crowned Coldwater Queen of October, she may even start to love herself a little. This is “a remarkable first novel, bursting with warmth” (Chicago Tribune), named one of Library Journal’s top ten books of the year, from an “author worth watching” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution). “Fondly evokes small-town life in the ’60s.” —Publishers Weekly
