The Golden Bristled Boar: Reflections on Art, Cooking and the Last Ferocious Beast of the Forest

By Jeffrey Greene
(University of Virginia Press)

The Golden-Bristled Boar is an elegant book that looks at the landscape and ecology of what would seem to be our most inelegant natural neighbor -- the star of dark paintings and angry fables, as well as, by family connection, the food of colonial America. Jeffrey Greene leads you deep in the forests of Burgundy -- befriending hunters and biologists, and, along the way, bedazzling with stories of wild boar invasions throughout the swine-filled world.  -- (Robert Sullivan, author of Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants )

Novelist Lawrence Norfolk reviews The Golden-Bristled Boar in The Wall Street Journal

 

Flotsam cover

Flotsam

By John Stewart
(Paul Dry Books)

"John Stewart is a rare combination: an artist, an adventurer, a survivor of a prison camp, a great photographer and a rambunctious, rollicking prose writer. He's had marvelous, unlikely experiences everywhere from the fashion salons of New York to the wildest mountains of Asia. The soul presented in this book is like none you’ve ever met."—C. K. Williams

Poser

By Sue Wyshynski
(Walker Books)

"Tallulah isn’t always graceful or even gracious, but her dedication to surfing and resolve in standing up to her bullies make her a believable heroine. She sometimes wipes out in the boy and friendship departments, but she also gets back up and tries to set things right. The beauty and danger of surfing are captured through Tallulah’s mile-a-minute, often funny descriptions."--Kirkus Reviews

Serpent Box

by Vincent Louis Carrella
(HarperPerennial)

“...an amazing first novel, one that brings to mind Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood and Harry Crews’s The Gospel Singer. Carrella’s prose has the clarity and richness of poetry, and he crafts his story with the surehandedness of a veteran novelist.” -- Ron Rash

 


Swan Town: The Secret Journal of Susanna Shakespeare

Jokerman 8

by Richard Melo
(Soft Skull Press)

“Like the Dylan songbook its title invokes, Jokerman 8 is freewheeling and deeply felt, moving and cymbal-crashing funny. It is also that rarity: an angry, politically-minded work of exuberant high spirits. A great first novel." --Andrew Lewis Conn, author of P the Novel


Ginny Good

by Gerard Jones
(Monkfish Book Publishing Co.)

“Suppose I were to say: brilliant, wonderful, moving. The trouble is, you've heard it all before. And the last time you read a book with that sort of endorsement on the cover, you weren't too impressed. So, let's skip the shorthand compliments. I will just say that this is a remarkable book. I enjoyed reading it, and I recommend it unreservedly..." – Grumpy Old Bookman blog
