Barber '78, Jennifer
Take Jennifer Barber: "Jennifer Barber's poems are sensual, attentive lyrics which move with a growing necessity and insight and surprise. I am grateful for this fine book." - Jean Valentine Take Mark Bibbins: "also has the courage to stop, to pin down the always irrational present moment, and the reader is eager to follow, to inhale its scathing or enticing perfume. Swerve's tire-marks announce the arrival of a brilliant young poet." -John Ashbery Take Maggie Nelson: "Maggie Nelson brings a deft and unflagging wit to her writing and her powers of invention never quit. I love the way all she says keeps moving, insistent, often abrasive, and always specific. Can it get any better? I don't think so!" - Robert Creeley

More Dam Trouble (Signed copy) More Dam Trouble (Signed copy)
Smith, Earl H.
Like the first in the series, The Dam Committee, this comic crime caper is also set in Belfry, Maine, and has the familiar old characters (Harry, Nibber, the dog Winston, etc.) and a few new ones as well. It is a three-plotted affair dealing with arson, a real estate scheme that threatens the village and (of course) a murder by the dam.

The Hotel on Place Vendome: Life, Death, and Betrayal at the Hotel Ritz in Paris (Signed Copy) The Hotel on Place Vendome: Life, Death, and Betrayal at the Hotel Ritz in Paris (Signed Copy)
When France fell to the Germans in June 1940, the legendary Hotel Ritz on the Place Vendome--an icon of Paris frequented by film stars and celebrity writers, American heiresses and risque flappers, playboys, and princes--was the only luxury hotel of its kind allowed in the occupied city by order of Adolf Hitler. Tilar J. Mazzeo traces the history of this cultural landmark from its opening in fin de siecle Paris. At its center, The Hotel on Place Vendome is an extraordinary chronicle of life at the Ritz during wartime, when the Hotel was simultaneously headquarters to the highest-ranking German officers, such as Reichsmarshal Hermann Goring, and home to exclusive patrons, including Coco Chanel. Mazzeo takes us into the grand palace's suites, bars, dining rooms, and wine cellars, revealing a hotbed of illicit affairs and deadly intrigue, as well as stunning acts of defiance and treachery. Publication Date: March 11, 2014
