Memoirs of a Bicycle By Iggy Giant

“Memoirs of a Bicycle”, as the name implies is an unusual biography, written by an unusual subject: Iggy Giant, the bike who, under his various masters, not only manages to survive... More > countless adventures in three continents, but also, in his inimitable style, records these events faithfully. He gives us glimpses of the life of a bicycle in modern society, which he finds at times, puzzling, to say the least. Iggy observes us, humans with the eye of a young, impressionable, often naïve, bicycle, and makes no secret of his confusion when facing the many absurdities he sees with the human race. He gives us his take on sex, politics and carbon print. He hates cars with fervor and has a strange admiration for sheep. He also loves humans with a passion, and in his strange, naïve way, he wants to save us. “Bicycles will set you free”, he says and dreams of a world without OPEC, EPA, ECG’s, gridlocks and…fat people.< Less
Boojum! By Charles Wertenbaker

Novel: Reissue. This is the eightieth anniversary reprint of the classic novel of the University of Virginia, and of old Charlottesville, Virginia, not available since 1928. A young... More > cocktail-swilling poet-aesthete; wending his way through UVA’s parties, secret-societies, academic and administrative pitfalls. A loveable rogue anti-hero for our time and his, for all time. A sensitive and antic novel of time and place, written to a tone, texture, and quality to allow it to compare favourably to any of the bildungs-romans of the Jazz-Age... but with a distinctly Virginian flavour. A Southern Gatsby (1925), an American Decline and Fall (1928), a landlocked The Rock Pool (1936), a more survivable Beneath the Wheel (1906), a small-town Sinister Street (1914). Boojum! falls solidly in the genre of comic-tragic bohemian drop-out masterpieces, and deserves to assume its place amongst them... here’s hoping this re-issue may help it to do so.
