This collection of short stories was physically dragged with me over a life time before finally being typed anew -- this time onto electronic medium from the original electric or mechanically typed,... More > hand corrected vellum sheets -- and coming to rest on the cloud. This typed and now published collection constitutes a gift to all and no-one from my work-a-day world retirement to one of the arts, philosophy and life. Written mostly as a young man in Belgium the stories represent some of the more imaginary turns of a youthful mind. Surrealism, existentialism, modernism: the likes of Robbe Grillet, Boris Vian, Jean Cocteau and Kurt Vonnegut show threads of influence throughout the warp and woof. Several recent stories complete the collection. There you will recognize the spirit of George Orwell or that of the peerless Ferdinand Celine, if you look carefully. The stories are torn from life, a life you will know well too, if not the one you were taught to see.< Less

Modern Times, in HD By STEPHEN SPOSATO
Paperback: List Price: $15.48 $13.93 | You Save: 10%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Modern Times was the last of the silent films by the great director and pantomime Charlie Chaplin. As the giant machinery of the industrial society that was coming to dominate the agricultural... More > plains of America and the workshops of Europe begins to grind the hapless “little tramp.” There are differences, of course. Chaplin’s times, especially those of Modern Times in the midst of the Great Depression, rising nationalism, racism and ultimately war, were a particularly bleak period for the West. But if Chaplin’s art can rise above it and make us laugh and hope, after all love and the “tramp’s” sense of himself finally triumph over all his hardships, we should be able to do the same with our own modest, in comparison, tribulations.< Less

A Destination Funeral: Does 5,000 Miles and 10 Feet Under, 'Get You Away From It All' By STEPHEN SPOSATO
Paperback: List Price: $24.80 $19.84 | You Save: 20%

The idea for A 'Destination Funeral' -- Does 5,000 Miles and 10 Feet Under, “Get You Away From It All? ” – came from the ‘destination marriages’ which were becoming all... More > the rage among a certain 1 percent; an opportunity to keep out the rif-raf, to escape the crocodile tears? Of course what began as a meditation on death soon became one on life in our times, its challenges and rewards. I lived a period from 1947 – well into the 21 st Century, a period fraught with change and the challenges it brings. From black and white TV to HD hand-helds; from 'coming out' parties for debutantes to coming-out of the closet for one's gay marriage; from segregation to rap music and Nike endorsements, the changes have been well beyond any seers ability to imagine. I was often there, when things were changing, I, we, had no choice. Most of what is written is true, the few exaggerations are usually disclosed, tongue in cheek. The names, except for celebrities whom I don’t think will mind, have been mostly left out.< Less
