There was a time I would not have lit a fire, if there wasn't a man at home to tend to it. That worry wore off long ago, out of need. -Capanna One friend and then another commits suicide. Her partner has a heart attack. She comes face-to-face with a wolf in the wild. Her rescue dog bites her in the face. Her past intrudes in ways it can't be changed. Life is messy, and what, really, do any of us know about how to live it? Nearly Fifty is a collection of essays, written in real time, through which Paloma A. Capanna explores how she tried to make thoughtful decisions in the midst of chaos in order to keep moving forward in the pulse of her life.

Even when there is no perfect solution, she illustrates the importance of making a choice with which one can go on living. "In Paloma's questions lives wisdom. In her answers, wonder and compassion. This is a beautiful, honest, direct book. Open it and you will find yourself in a company of someone who is brave to live in the open." -Ilya Kaminsky, Poet, author of Dancing in Odessa, Musica Humana, and Deaf Nation, winner of the Pushcart Prize "If you are looking for insight into a life well-lived, then you have come to the right place.

Naked Lunch was banned, castigated, and recognized as a work of genius on its first publication in 1959, and fifty years later it has lost nothing of its power to astonish, shock, and inspire. A lacerating satire, an exorcism of demons, a grotesque cabinet of horrors, it is the Black Book of the Beat Generation, the forerunner of the psychedelic counterculture, and a progenitor of postmodernism and the digital age. A work of excoriating laughter, linguistic derangement, and transcendent beauty, it remains both influential and inimitable. This is the first book devoted in its entirety to William Burroughs’ masterpiece, bringing together an international array of scholars, artists, musicians, and academics from many fields to explore the origins, writing, reception, and complex meanings of Naked Lunch. Tracking the legendary book from Texas and Mexico to New York, Tangier, and Paris, Naked Lunch@50 significantly advances our understanding and appreciation of this most elusive and uncanny of texts.

From the creator of the iconic "Cathy" comic strip comes her first collection of funny, wise, poignant, and incredibly honest essays about being a woman in what she lovingly calls "the panini generation." As the creator of "Cathy," Cathy Guisewite found her way into the hearts of readers more than forty years ago, and has been there ever since. Her hilarious and deeply relatable look at the challenges of womanhood in a changing world became a cultural touchstone for women everywhere. Now Guisewite returns with her signature wit and warmth in this debut essay collection about another time of big transition, when everything starts changing and disappearing without permission: aging parents, aging children, aging self stuck in the middle. With her uniquely wry and funny admissions and insights, Guisewite unearths the humor and horror of everything from the mundane (trying to introduce her parents to TiVo and facing four decades' worth of unorganized photos) to the profound (finding a purpose post-retirement, helping parents downsize their lives, and declaring freedrom from all those things that hold us back). No longer confined to the limits of four comic panels, Guisewite holds out her hand in prose form and becomes a reassuring companion for those on the threshold of "what happens next." Heartfelt and humane and always cathartic, Fifty Things That Aren't My Fault is ideal reading for mothers, daughters, and anyone who is caught somewhere in between.
