Fanny Says

By: Nickole Brown

$16.00


An "unleashed love song" to her late grandmother, Nickole Brown's collection brings her brassy, bawdy, tough-as-new-rope grandmother to life. With hair teased to Jesus, mile-long false eyelashes, and a white Cadillac Eldorado with atomic-red leather seats, Fanny is not your typical granny rocking in a chair. Instead, think of a character that looks a lot like Eva Gabor in Green Acres, but darkened with a shadow of Flannery O'Connor. A cross-genre collection that reads like a novel, this book is both a collection of oral history and a lyrical and moving biography that wrestles with the complexities of the South, including poverty, racism, and domestic violence.



Have your own sassy, bawdy, tough-as-new-rope grandmother? Someone as unrelenting as Fanny that you don't want to forget? If so, share your grandmother's story on "The Bingo Hall" at www.nickolebrown.com.

The Winged Seed: A Remembrance

By: Li-Young Lee

$16.00


With a new Foreword by the author and never-before-seen photographs of the author's family and childhood



In lyrical prose, Li-Young Lee’s extraordinary story begins in the 1950s when his parents fled China’s political turmoil for Indonesia. Along with many other Chinese members of the population, his family was persecuted under President Sukarno. Falsely accused and charged for crimes against the state, his father spent a year and a half in jail as a political prisoner, half of that time in a leper colony. While his entire family was being transported to a prison colony, they escaped and fled to Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, and back to Hong Kong, where his father rose to prominence as an evangelical preacher. In 1962, the family sought asylum in the United States where his father became a Presbyterian minister. This reissued edition of acclaimed poet Li-Young Lee’s heart-wrenching memoir includes a new Foreword by the author and never-before-seen photographs of the author’s family and childhood.
