Poetry. "Paola Corso's poems are tough, edgy, often unsettling--populated with tender sinners and tough-as-nail saints. In her full-length debut, DEATH BY RENAISSANCE, she blends the political with the mythic, family life with social annotations, to create an urgent and compelling collection. Corso's hardships and joys are palpable in each of her poems"--Denise Duhamel. Corso's sympathetic voice evokes post-industrial Pittsburgh with its detritus of old women and boarded-up greengrocers, a Pittsburgh that's missed the high-tech revolution. But unlike an exercise in nostalgia, the poems capture the tastes, sounds and smells of a lively Italian family's work-oriented life, with its joys and sorrows. A welcome addition to working-class literature"--Patricia Dobler. Photographs by George Thomas Mendel.

Poetry. Poems of daily diligence, attenuated to the rhythms of rural life, meet with poems of Buddhist inspired meditations on how these rhythms fit into larger life patterns in Maj Ragain's latest collection, A HUNGRY GHOST SURRENDERS HIS TACKLEBOX. In his hands poetry becomes that dirt road winding back home, corn tassel, fencerows, the last light fading in the top branches of a century oak, bridging solitude and community, a way to offer one's longings to the world. "Pay the bill for the water/ in which you boil the rice. The rice sustains the body./ The water—from A HUNGRY GHOST SURRENDERS HIS TACKLEBOX.

Sports Betting and Bookmaking

Horse racing in America dates back to the colonial era when street races were a common occurrence. The commercialization of horse racing produced a sport that would briefly surpass all others in popularity, with annual races such as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes growing to rank among America’s most celebrated sporting events. From the very onset, horse racing and gambling were intertwined. As the popularity of racing and betting grew, so, too, did the controversies and corruption. Yet, despite the best efforts of social reformers, bookmakers stubbornly plied their trade, adapting and evolving as horse racing gave way to team sports as the backbone of their business. In Sports Betting and Bookmaking: An American History, Arne K. Lang provides a sweeping overview of legal and illegal sports and race betting in the United States, from the first thoroughbred meet at Saratoga in 1863 through the modern day. The cultural war between bookmakers and their adversaries is a recurring theme, as bookmakers were often forced into the shadows during times of social reform, only to bloom anew when the time was ripe. While much of bookmaking’s history takes place in New York, other locales such as Chicago, Las Vegas, and Atlantic City—not to mention Cyberspace—are also discussed in this volume. A comprehensive exploration of the evolution of bookmaking—including the legal developments and technological advancements that have taken place over the years—Sports Betting and Bookmaking is a fascinating read. This informative and engaging book will be of interest to anyone wanting to learn more about America’s long history with gambling on horse racing and team sports.
