Prints in 3-5 business days
We live in a world in which the body is both protected and exposed. The concept of embodied life experience is addressed in this thesis, with reflections on themes of abjection, the sublime, and... More > external technological interventions (or corruptions) of biotic processes. The practice of immersive installation art is discussed and illustrated via works entitled A Farewell to Flesh and I felt it shelter to speak to you. It is intended as a poetic and theoretical meditation on the concept of transition and transformation as expressed through the utilization, upsetting, and questioning of binary oppositions. It evokes the complexities of embodied experience through critical engagement with the concept of “in-between.” Transformative experiences can include physical transitions, yet they can also have political, social and spiritual implications. Emotional states, corporeal functions, sexuality, and life processes are here expressed through biomorphic, fiber- based sculptural installation.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
These writings cover a wide swath of my tormented searching for meaning and depth in the emotional tsunamis of my last two years. I believe they've helped me gain a better understanding of who I... More > really am . . . all of which has given me the strength to turn a seemingly ordinary corner. As I've stepped up into an entirely new Universe, one laden with so many radically different views and shocking responsibilities that any male would run off screaming in abject terror, I'm learning what Love really means. Two, three, four, five AND six A.M. feedings every night will show that to you very clearly . . . But I wouldn't go back for the world.< Less

Paperback: $49.55
Prints in 3-5 business days
Hazel spent 78 days in a nursing home at the end of a greatly typical life. The nursing home and local hospice had one charge: to provide her a glorious and gentle ending to her metastasized breast... More > cancer. The nursing home and hospice failed this charge abjectly. 78 Days is a photojournal celebrating a child's post-mortem honoring of Hazel for the same amount of days she suffered needlessly in institutionalized care.

Reading the two books together forms a blueprint for any reader to take a pilgrimage, Camino de Hazel, to create enduring memories and experiences with a loved one -- living or past. Every one will want to take several Camino de Hazels in a lifetime.< Less
My gal got eaten by a grizzly bear (and other uplifting poems of the Wild Wild West) By Peter Goulding
Paperback: $7.25
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is a very rare publication that features an author who has absolutely no knowledge of the subject about which he is writing. From his safe suburban armchair in Dublin, Ireland, Peter Goulding has... More > watched countless westerns featuring square-jawed heroes who have battled impossible odds to defeat injuns, outlaws and stampeding cattle. Based on these films and to the abject horror of the literary community, he has written numerous poems of questionable merit about life in the wild west (and indeed in the wild, wild west) and has decided to publish them in this slim volume. From botched gunfights to piles, from eating horses to losing children, this book of vaguely comic vignettes describes a side to the wild west (and indeed the wild, wild west) that probably never existed outside of the author’s head.< Less
Elizabeth Baker's Diary 1778 - 1786 By Sue Passmore
Paperback: $21.17
Prints in 3-5 business days
This diary is a wonderful source for eighteenth century women's history and for life in a small town in rural Wales recorded by an English exile. It is rare for anyone described as abjectly poor by... More > her contemporaries to keep a diary but Elizabeth Baker's excellent education gave her status and value in her community. She has been described as a snob who had, as she liked to recall, dined with aristocrats in her London life, but living as she did on a level with the poor, she wrote of them with immense sympathy and understood how circumstances beyond their control could lead them to fall into the pit of poverty. Her pen could be occasionally malicious, recording the foibles of her neighbours in Dolgellau, and it is invaluable for anyone researching their family history in Merioneth.< Less

From a violent, drunken father to abusive boys homes, from the Navy ... More > to a sadistic prison, from terrorism to salvation; this is Ken's remarkable and gut wrenching story of how the Lord rescued him from a life not worth living. Kenny's story vividly testifies that God can use any person a matter what or where they came from. No matter what you face today, no matter what you've done, no matter how lost you feel, there is hope for you. Kenny is living proof of that.
