Travelling At The Speed Of Dark by Mark Louis Hudson


Original Title: Travelling At The Speed Of Dark

This book, is essentially about HOW I have survived STUPID For many and nearly 60 odd years. More often than not, the truth hurts. But it is what it is, and I am HOW I am. What you are about to read, is all completely true, as I have lived it, first hand, and have survived it to tell. “MY LIFE” I have heard all of my life, not to judge a book by its cover. As I have judged, I too have also been judged. Either way, does not work out so well, in the end. But I am here to tell you, as far as my picture is concerned, on the front cover of this book, you get exactly what you see. Nothing is hidden, not even in the book. I put myself out there for all the world to see. And I am afraid that all you get, is plain ole’ silly, and God fearing, and undeniably lucky me. I will attempt to show you, how it is that I see, from my differing view, through a few of my true-life stories. And then maybe you will begin to see, why I am, HOW I am, and why I do as I do. Like it or not, this is all that I am. You get what you see, and you see what you get. It is all true, and it is definitely, truly, the epitome of me. Mark L. Hudson

Mr Quacker by Fay Risner


Original Title: Mr Quacker

Mr. Quacker has a real problem. He joins the mallard flock for his first migration flight south for the winter. One cold evening, the flock roosts among large hay bales for shelter. The next morning, Mr. Quacker finds himself alone. He over slept, and the other ducks left without him. When he finds a flock of white ducks on the farm, Mr. Quacker asks to join them. The ducks aren't sure they like him. They point out Mr. Quacker is brown, and they are white. He quacks loudly, and they hiss. Winter is coming. The white ducks aren't sure they want this stranger taking up space in their crowded barn and gobbling their food. The white ducks are just as much strangers to Mr. Quacker as he is to them. Will Mr. Quacker be able to convince the white ducks to let him stay?

Dill Bizzy by Nora Ericson


Original Title: Dill Bizzy

Dill is a duck. A perfectly ordinary duck. At least that’s what he thinks. Then he meets Bizzy, a strange bird. Bizzy seems to think that Dill is actually an odd duck! Together, they find that they’re even more extra-ordinary than they could have imagined. Perfect for anyone who has ever felt a little odd or a tad strange, this delightfully offbeat picture book celebrates the joy of finding a friend who lets you march (or waddle!) to the beat of your own drum.

Lynda Barry by Susan E. Kirtley


Original Title: Lynda Barry

Best known for her long-running comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek, illustrated fiction (Cruddy, The Good Times Are Killing Me), and graphic novels (One! Hundred! Demons!), the art of Lynda Barry (b. 1956) has branched out to incorporate plays, paintings, radio commentary, and lectures. With a combination of simple, raw drawings and mature, eloquent text, Barry’s oeuvre blurs the boundaries between fiction and memoir, comics and literary fiction, and fantasy and reality. Her recent volumes What It Is (2008) and Picture This (2010) fuse autobiography, teaching guide, sketchbook, and cartooning into coherent visions. In Lynda Barry: Girlhood through the Looking Glass, author Susan E. Kirtley examines the artist’s career and contributions to the field of comic art and beyond. The study specifically concentrates on Barry’s recurring focus on figures of young girls, in a variety of mediums and genres. Barry follows the image of the girl through several lenses—from text-based novels to the hybrid blending of text and image in comic art, to art shows and coloring books. In tracing Barry’s aesthetic and intellectual development, Kirtley reveals Barry’s work to be groundbreaking in its understanding of femininity and feminism.

Staying True by Lynn Waddington


Original Title: Staying True

Staying True: Musings of an Odd-duck Quaker Lesbian Approaching Death is a sage, insouciant account of discovering one's own path and staying true to it through life's gyrations. This memoir rips, romps, stomps and frolics through the most meaningful mysteries of life and dives into topics any thinking person must wrangle with: illness, death, sex, power relations, a meaningful marriage, creating a future that befits the past, exploring why one is on earth and what one is supposed to do here. What is the true goal of education? What does the art of the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods tell us about that time and our cultural future? Can we approach death honoring the experience of each day? Staying True models faith as a living presence. This is the work of a brilliant eclectic thinker, a mystic, a student of many disciplines, one who models for us the work of a lifetime.

The Adolescent by Fyodor Dostoevsky


Original Title: The Adolescent

The narrator and protagonist of Dostoevsky’s novel The Adolescent (first published in English as A Raw Youth) is Arkady Dolgoruky, a na•ve 19-year-old boy bursting with ambition and opinions. The illegitimate son of a dissipated landowner, he is torn between his desire to expose his father’s wrongdoing and the desire to win his love. He travels to St. Petersburg to confront the father he barely knows, inspired by an inchoate dream of communion and armed with a mysterious document that he believes gives him power over others. This new English version by the most acclaimed of Dostoevsky’s translators is a masterpiece of pathos and high comedy.
