Fire In My Bones: A Walk Through Jeremiah By Douglas Humphries
eBook (ePub): $7.99
“But if I say, ‘I will not mention him or speak anymore in his name,’ his word is in my heart like a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in. Indeed, I cannot.”... More > - J. 20:9 Heinrich Ewald called Jeremiah, “the most human prophet.” To Douglas Humphries, he’s always been Jerry, “the prophet who talked back.” Unexpectedly, blessedly standing in opposition to everything he thought it took to be one of the faithful. Jeremiah’s story is one of rejection and destruction, tragic and yet profoundly hopeful. A true picture of what it costs to do the hard, right thing. What it means to follow God. What it means to even know God. And it found Douglas exactly when he needed it to. Part biblical analysis, part memoir, part confessional. As much a reaction to scripture as it is an investigation of it. This book brings new insight into an old, but all too familiar story. A new way to consider an old, but dear prophet.< Less
The Monsters We Became or Fell For By Chris Parlett

HE was a gentleman tyrant who lived for his family—even the bastard he was forced to raise. YOU could have taken on the world with her by your side yet still you were discarded—the reek... More > of your weakness doubtless overwhelming—and witnessing the pain she had caused only seemed to strengthen her resolve. I have always looked out for that neurotic wreck so it's a crying shame that he would rather lick his wounds in a town he despises than spend summer chasing fresh foreign flesh with his brother. More for me then, I suppose. THIS is a filthy narrative, a muddled confessional, a hate crime of passion. THIS is a darkly comic, unapologetically bitter dance between the hazards of a twisted Britain and a rose-tinted Denmark built with madness in mind—a place Englishmen needn't bring any demons of their own for there are crawling things enough, and crawl they will, ever closer. THIS is the tale of an island, two cities and the monsters we became or fell for.< Less
God Bless America By Mark SaFranko

"'You got the worst luck in the world, punk -- always in the wrong place at the wrong time!' Bash was yelling at me when she brought me home from the emergency room. Here I was, causing trouble... More > again. Somehow, no matter what I was up to, I always managed to step into it...." Max Zajack's childhood years are far from the best of his life. Thrown into a world of a tempestuous immigrant family and a controlling Catholic school, Max sees only two means of escape...death or madness. Max spirals down through psychotic teachers, wild arguments, lousy jobs, fear and blood. How can anyone survive? Well, maybe in realising the bleak humour of the whole damned thing.... After success in Europe with his first two novels Hating Olivia and Lounge Lizard, Mark SaFranko returns with a third Max Zajack novel. As a confessional childhood novel, God Bless America has drawn favourable comparisons to Harry Crews (A Childhood), John Fante (1933 Was A Bad Year, The Road To Los Angeles) and Charles Bukowski (Ham On Rye).< Less

I Was Born Dead: a memoir By David Rehak
eBook (PDF): $1.99
(3 Ratings)
In this highly personal and confessional semi-autobiographical memoir which reads more like a novel in the first person, Rehak tells us an engrossing and unique life history of being born overseas... More > under the oppressive veil of communism, then escaping and growing up free in democratic Canada, living briefly in the conservative southern United States, and then making his home in the liberal atmosphere of Europe as an adult. He recounts his whole life right from his baby delivery (which didn’t go too well) to the present-day. Writing in the same casual way that he speaks, he especially likes to focus on all the weird, amusing, and humorous happenings of everyday life, and this book will tickle your tummy with laughter, especially if you don‘t mind humor of a more irreverent and daring kind. You will also be deeply moved, as the author tells you about the great love of his life, the girl from Prague who forever holds the key to his heart. Includes over 70 photos.< Less
Roadkill By Dave Lewis
Paperback: $11.90

(12 Ratings)
Dave Lewis' eight book is a new collection of contemporary poetry. ‘Dave Lewis’ new work opens with Henry Thoreau’s famous quote, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet... More > desperation”. Very apt in our Twitter-twatter, X-Box-Factor age when apathy, indifference, and resignation is the norm and the – increasingly – lost generation slumber party away their lives wearing Onesies. This book of verse is polemical, confessional, a slap in the face wake-up call, and a much needed challenge to all “those up there” who should have, and could have made it better.’ – John Evans ‘At times witty, at times gritty, Dave Lewis has produced a fascinating collection on human connection. The humour is dark, the love is bright, the poetry is touching, taunting, spewing, galling, tender. Modern life is out there and engulfing but the passion for truth still lives. Roadkill overflows with personality, it’s a roller-coaster ride, and to use the words of the poet “I’m smiling like Tenby”.’ – Eloise Williams< Less

Temple Fires By Lucian Blake
Paperback: $16.00

Work on Temple Fires initially started back in 2007. Inspired by the poetic oeuvres of W. S. Merwin, Salvatore Quasimodo, and T. S. Eliot, Blake continued to refine his creative body of work until he... More > felt it reached an acceptable standard for publication. Driven by the reoccurring notion of compassion, the twenty-five existentially imbued poems also touch upon themes of forgiveness, redemption, and the rekindling of lost innocence. Deliberately rendered in an introspective, down-tempo style, Blake’s poems can be seen as autobiographical snapshots. It is the confessional nature of such intimate glimpses that endows Blake’s poems with the possibility to transgress the readers defenses, subtly ushering in the vital space necessary to instigate meditative self-reflection. Lucian Blake is a contemporary English poet, novelist, and singer/songwriter. He is also the author of the books Gifts from Jupiter and Venusian Hymns. He currently resides in Dartmouth Park, London, where he’s lived since 2000.< Less
