My Omaha Obsession: Searching for the City

Miss Cassette

Review in Shelf Awareness:

“No familiarity with Omaha is needed to enjoy this charming book—it’s for any reader who delights in old houses, faded newspaper clippings, family stories, memories of old restaurants with famous bean soups or names like ‘U Eat a Hamburger,’ and architectural details from a bygone time.”

Cain v. Abel: A Jewish Courtroom Drama

Dan Ornstein

Review by the Jewish Book Council:

Cain v. Abel is a rich, com­pelling dra­ma and Rab­bi Ornstein’s desire to fos­ter a deep­er expe­ri­ence of this bib­li­cal sto­ry by active­ly engag­ing his read­ers is more than met.”

Bouton: The Life of a Baseball Original

Mitchell Nathanson

Praise in Reason:

Bouton: The Life of a Baseball Original is one of the best baseball biographies in recent memory. Nathanson is a fantastic storyteller, capable of juxtaposing Bouton’s recollections with those of his contemporaries and situating these stories within their historical context.”

Sacrament of Bodies

Romeo Oriogun

Review by Africa in Words:

“The pain, supplication and anger are what make the collection a very personal and emotional read and a strong tool for activism.”

From Angel to Office Worker: Middle-Class Identity and Female Consciousness in Mexico, 1890–1950

Susie S. Porter

Praise from Anthropology of Work Review:

“Her lucid analysis and fascinating conclusions about women and government work are based on extensive research in manuscript collections as well as published primary and secondary sources.”
