My Wife Wants You to Know I’m Happily Married by Joey Franklin

Praise from Shelf Awareness:

“As a title, My Wife Wants You to Know I’m Happily Married has the hollow ring of a bumper sticker or T-shirt. Luckily, the contents promise a much stronger, deeper resonance with thoughtful readers who may see themselves reflected in Franklin’s often universally recognizable stories about childhood, children, growing up and adulthood.—Rob LeFebvre, freelance writer and editor

Discover: These thoughtful, emotional and touching personal essays explore universal themes of the human experience.”


Dawnland Voices edited by Siobhan Senier

Review from Times Literary Supplement:

“. . . puts another nail in the coffin of the persistent fantasy that ‘real’ Indians and their traditions have vanished east of the Mississippi, the region where colonization happened earliest.”


How Winter Began by Joy Castro

Recommendation from The Los Angeles Review:

“When Joy Castro tells a story, readers can be sure of two things: first, they will be blown away by the beauty of the language; second, they will feel.  That might sound like a simple thing—just to feel; however, creating a genuine emotion in a reader is one of the most difficult, and most important, skills a writer can master.”

Desert Diplomat by Robert W. Jordan

Review from Foreign Affairs:

“In this readable chronicle, he demonstrates good instincts and a fair measure of modesty.”


We Are Here by Ellen Cassedy

Praise from National Geographic:

What to Read Before You Go: Ellen Cassedy’s award-winning memoir We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust details her efforts to learn Yiddish as a way to discover her family’s Jewish Lithuanian roots and, in turn, explore Lithuania’s brutal history under Stalin’s Soviet regime and during Nazi occupation.”


Deco Body, Deco City by Ageeth Sluis

Recommendation from The Washington Book Review:

Deco Body, Deco City is a much needed addition to the existing literature on modern Mexican history. It provides deep insight into the social change generated by the Mexican Revolution. It is insightful about the state of arts in Mexico in the twentieth century. This book is a very well-researched and well-referenced.”


Cather Studies, Volume 10 by Anne Kaufman

Praise from CHOICE:

“. . .this insightful, well-conceived volume brings together 17 essays, most by senior scholars, examining the literary and cultural contexts of Cather’s work . . . A valuable contribution to Cather studies.”
