By Jay Bajaj
A series of short stories about Jag Mohan, an Indian immigrant in Canada, who leaves a large and domineering family in order to become a bush pilot. These interconnected stories are both illuminating and touching, as Jag struggles to belong, either to the culture he left behind, or the new culture he's embracing.
Based loosely on the life of auther Jay Bajaj, this collection takes the reader through adventure, culture clash, family, and love as our unlikely hero, Jag Mohan, stumbles, flies, and travels through the vibrant tapestry of his life.
I Paint Gophers!
By Eve Crawford
In her conversational, wholly irreverent voice, Eve Crawford’s creative memoir, ”I Paint Gophers!” traces her chaotic years growing up in a family of four unruly girls, with a mother who would rather be teaching birth control in India (if only she could mutter the word penis) and a father, the lone male of the pack, who yearns for World War 2 when, as a lieutenant in the navy, people followed his orders. It follows her life as an actor as she balances her career as the Where’s Waldo of film with the daunting challenge of raising two boys as a single mom. Her hilarious stories both amuse and cut to the heart with an approach to life that is robust and full of love.
The Book Your Parents Don't Want You to Read
By Steve DiMarco
"I was surrounded by their hate, their brutalities against those different, those weaker. I bore witness to their daily PDAs - Public Displays of Affliction. And what were the adults, our supposed guardians doing about the situation? Zero, zilch, absolutely nothing. I could no longer stand by and watch these Bully terrorisms continue unpunished!"
Thus begins this wicked, dark comedy; our teen protagonist setting out to rectify these wrongs by recruiting others to take part in retribution against the culprits. This is the story of BULLIES INC.
The Revelation of Jack the Ripper
By Alan Scarfe
The archetype of all serial killers tells his life story. Why the murders happened, exactly how they happened in every detail and why they stopped. The events described in the book are one hundred percent accurate in regard to all the known facts of the case. A case that for over a century has been meticulously researched, but during which surprisingly little attention has been paid to the intricate involvement of Forbes Winslow. But what is the book about? Well, it's an examination of how a "perfectly normal upper-middle-class family man" can become a serial killer and, beyond that, it explores why so many mass murders, exterminations and genocidal atrocities have occurred throughout the blood-soaked history of humankind.
