"Poems for people who don't like poetry" might best describe this slender volume of verse. An unusual and-to those who might not normally read poetry-oddly appealing little book of poems, Cuspidor covers a broad range of timely and timeless themes: from life to death, from love to war and from sound-sense to non-sense. "I too dislike it," a famous poet once said about poetry. One does not have to like it to enjoy this collection; a dislike of poetry might even be an advantage. A thread of sincerity nonetheless runs through these parodies of cherished and inspiring classics scrupulously assembled and presented here with edifying notes. Cuspidor makes for a memorable Christmas or birthday gift, not just for anybody but for everyone.

A novel about journalism and one man’s moral choices, “evoking the rhythms of Ernest Hemingway’s early fiction . . . A quietly affecting, mournful achievement” (Richmond Times-Dispatch). Ned Ayres has never wanted anything but a newspaper career. His defining moment comes early, when Ned is city editor of his hometown paper. One of his beat reporters fields a tip: William Grant, the town haberdasher, married to the bank president’s daughter and the father of two children, once served six years in Joliet. The story runs—Ned offers no resistance to his publisher’s argument that the public has a right to know. The consequences, swift and shocking, haunt him throughout a long career—until eventually, as the editor of a major newspaper in post-Kennedy Washington, DC, Ned has reason to return to the question of privacy and its many violations.

From the acclaimed author of Blue Highways, PrairyErth, and Roads to Quoz, a dazzling collection of travel tales from the road. Here, There, Elsewhere draws together for the first time William Least Heat-Moon's greatest short-form travel writing. Personally selected by the writer, these pieces take us from Japan, England, Italy, and Mexico to Long Island, Oregon, Arizona, from small towns to big cities, ocean shores and inland mysteries. Including Heat-Moon's reflections on writing these pieces, Here, There, Elsewhere is much more than the usual collection of amber; it is a coupled summation of craft and memory. A perfect treasury of prose and provocation for readers old and new, Heat-Moon's most recent work reveals his absolute mastery across pages many and few.
