Knock, knock. Who's there? Someone with sad underwear. Sad underwear? How can that be? When my best friend's mad at me, Everything is sad. Even my underwear. Only Judith Viorst, with the perfect pitch for the trials of childhood that has made her Alexander books modern classics, could create an ode to melancholy unmentionables. But the title poem is just one of the many pleasures in this collection, which bursts with wit and understanding -- and the occasional poignant note. Sure to delight readers of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky, as well as Viorst's own legions of fans, Sad Underwear is a perfect companion volume to her celebrated If I Were In Charge of the World.

Chris took a long time to learn something wonderful . . . In an honest and intimate storytelling style, Chris relives triumphs, catastrophes, and plenty of moments that fell somewhere in between. With a friendly and nostalgic voice, he unfolds his adventures and misadventures one by one, has us laughing at times and choking back a tear at others, and shows us a good time along the way. From a lonely playground sandbox to a high, snowy mountaintop; from raging whitewater, exciting baseball tournaments, and mysterious lava tunnels to the terrors of Junior High; from the bleak bottom of too many booze bottles to the joyful realization that there is a God who loves him, this warm, funny, heart-tugging, and inspiring collection of adventures provides us with vivid reminders of the value of family, the strength of tenacity, the power of faith, the need for forgiveness, and the importance of always striving to be an ocelot in an underwear drawer.

Its better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, the wise old saying had been on my mind over the years. So finally, I lit the candle by writing my biography. The book tells all about a boy born to a middle-class rural family in the British colonial Ceylon. Living in an era of strict cultural taboos and ancient practices his young life was utterly intricate. Torn from the bosom of his family, he departs from his cozy village-home to a faraway school to suffer under sadistic teachers. In a miserable boardinghouse he struggles with nasty bullyboys and battles along with constant homesickness. The family tragedies worsen his misery drowning him in grief and, hence, confusion. Later recovering and developing a great vision of life, takes him out of misery to a successful university career. To begin a new twist of fate, he leaves his motherland to spend a quiet family life in New Zealand. Then his family disappointments take him across the Tasman to Australia. Living here for over a few decades he becomes a helpless victim of numerous adverse life events forcing him to a solitary single life. Now he finds his way to survive the loneliness through his profound determination engaged in generosity. Later when he expedites a romance overseas, the surrounding enemies ruin it resulting in the tragic loss of his great lover, leaving him in deep sorrow. In dismay, with a failed mission overseas, and now aimless, he returns to Australia. Grieving silently and living a low profile, suddenly his health deteriorates leaving a little ray of hope of life. Eventually, he recovers slowly and agonizingly bringing his life back to solitude again. This is a vivid story written true to his memories in sequel and full of haunting childhood, fomenting adolescence, ghosts of numerous failures and finding ways to survive the great losses, disappointments and loneliness through his determination. Also, interestingly the writer relates his times to important events took place in the outer world during these periods; a kind of a historical account. This is a dramatic life journey of a mans own purpose and meaning of battling along. So, those readers who seek a variety would find this book full of interesting episodes, cultural background and differences in the light of the Westerners eyes. Finally, its a unique presentation and not the norm in traditional book stores.

And so you’ve reached that time in life when you’re stating to pick investments over adventure, clean over scenic, comfortable over intense; when, even though in your heart of hearts you’re only seventeen, the rest of you is (how did it happen?) forty. The wise and witty lady of It’s Hard to Be Hip Over Thirty is here to get you through these forty-ish years with poems that reflect our common shared experience. So let her help you take a look at that decade of sagging kneecaps and college reunions and fantasies of love in the afternoon: at Maoist kids, cholesterol counts, adult-education courses and other atrocities—which somehow just don’t hurt so much when you laugh. A marvelous book filled with insight and warmth, How Did I Get to Be 40 & Other Atrocities is Judith Viorst at her best.

Will Self possesses one of the greatest literary imaginations of any writer working today. How the Dead Live is his most extraordinary book yet—a novel that will challenge, entertain, and truly astonish. Lily Bloom is an aging American transplanted to England who has lost her battle with cancer and lies wasting away at the Royal Ear Hospital. As her two daughters—lumpy Charlotte, who runs a hugely successful chain of stationery stores called Waste of Paper, and beautiful Natasha, a junkie—buzz around her and the nurses pump her full of morphine, Lily slides in and out of the present, taking us on a surreal, opinionated trip through the stages of a lifetime of lust and rage. A career girl in the 1940s, a sexed-up, tippling adulteress in the 1950s and ‘60s, a divorced PR flak in the 1970s and ‘80s, Lily presents us with a portrait of America and England over sixty years of riotous and unreal change. And then it’s over: Lily catches a cab with the aboriginal wizard Phar Lap Jones, her guide to the shockingly banal world of the dead. It’s a world that is surreal but familiar, where she again works in PR and rediscovers how great smoking is, where her cohabitants include Rude Boy, the son who died at age nine and now swears a blue streak, and three eyeless, murmuring wraiths, the Fats—composed of the pounds, literally the whole selves, she lost and gained over her lifetime. As Lily settles into her nonexistence, the most difficult challenge for this staunchly difficult woman is how to understand that she’s dead, and how to leave the rest behind. How the Dead Live is an unforgettable portrait of the human condition, the struggle with life and with death. It’s a novel that will disturb and provoke, the work, in the words of one British reviewer, “of a novelist writing at the height of his powers.”

Mike doesn't get why people think he's boring. Sure, he doesn't have many friends. (OK, zero friends.) And everyone laughs at him when he reads his essays out loud in class. And he's never invited to parties. But one day Tschick, the odd new boy at school, shows up at Mike's house out of the blue. He dares him to go on a road trip with him. No parents, no map, no destination. Will they get hopelessly lost in the middle of nowhere? Probably. Will they meet crazy people and get into serious trouble? Definitely. But will they ever be called boring again? Not a chance. 'You will see the world with different eyes after reading this novel' Rolling Stone Winner of the German Teen Literature Prize

Nadianna Jesup, a pregnant young photographer from rural Georgia, is visiting Mayley, a village in Yorkshire, England, on an arts grant when she discovers a burned corpse floating in a river. No one, including historian Gale Grayson, Nadianna's companion on the trip, believes her, except for a local religious group that thinks she has witnessed a vision from God. Strange events surrounding the old mill that Nadianna and Gale are documenting bring to light tensions among some of the colorful inhabitants of the town, including Chalice Hibbert, a six-foot-seven mute; her employer, potter Olivia Markham; and Gerald Thornsby, a thief-turned-preacher who opposes Olivia's efforts to turn the abandoned mill into an artist's mall. In this, her latest mystery featuring Gale Grayson, Holbrook (The Grass Widow) intersperses her contemporary tale with excerpts from the tragic diary of a Luddite named Michael Dodd. This psychological mystery, although hampered at times by clich s about Americans abroad, succeeds in evoking the bleakness of the depressed mill town and in portraying the family bonds that drive the characters to acts of desperation.

Hes published literary criticism, poetry, and has had plays produced. Sweet, Sour, and Sad is his first collection of unpublished works. His new bi-lingual novella, The Smoking Contest (in English and French), is on press. Mr. Keifetz was married to the late Joyce Engelson, a legendary editor in book publishing.And their daughter, Mandy Keifetz, was the fiction winner of the 2010 AWP Award Series with her novel, Flea Circus.
