It has many turns... More > of plot involving betrayal, reconciliation, “outings” and frustration, as well as moments of great beauty. It is told in the voices of four first-person narrators, the main characters, who alternate in telling the story from different points of view.

The Striker By Luis L. Tijerina
Paperback: $10.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Tijerina’s frank portrayal of comradeship caught in the inexorable sweep of war in “Sunrise in East Prussia” glows with an intensity unrivaled in modern literature while his... More > description of the fights between soldiers in “Heat and the Cornfield” can stand next to the great moments in literary history like for instance Hemingway’s “A farewell to arms”. It is the gloriously pragmatic, unpredictable genius of Tijerina’s narrative gifts and his vigorous style that makes these intellectually playful stories - about love and pain, loyalty and desertion but even so about soccer and photography- unforgettable. I think of Tijerina as the great modern descendent of Alberto Moravia. - Michiel Dockx, Master Degree in Economics and Diplomacy from the University of Antwerp Brussels, Belgium< Less

The Gulf Which Besets Us. By Azuka Oji
Paperback: $11.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
This work has a lot in common with ‘the divine comedy’ originally credited to Dante. Ergo the borrowed thematic structure, to which I must admit, deviates somewhat from the aforementioned... More > as this tale certainly assumes a howbeit more purposeful and current rendition of life after death. The protagonist is a dead Nigerian spy on the verge of returning to the life he left behind with major changes in coordinates of course. And whilst recognizing that the subject of terrorism is so trite these days, this author has all but endeavored to prove that Divinity as it is multilaterally constituted is always paying attention. Indeed it seems to be that there is a cold war between evil and good entities the world over and Youssouf ‘the sleeper’ Tanko side by side his supporting acts are only one more platoon in this great army for good. Thus their antecedents are laid bare for to be evaluated by those who are at once drawn to this story, and all geared towards facilitating God’s very own endgame.< Less

More > Oregon’s east side. With the pivotal 1960s serving as a backdrop for a host of delinquent adventures, a lost middle class society is remembered in this tale of Patrick Compton, a troubled teenager who simply can’t stay out of jams. From his dysfunctional family and newspaper route customers to his male and female peers, Pat’s bumper car ride contrasts the schemes and dreams of a precocious adolescent with the bitter realities that rarely fail to curdle the joy of living. It's the sort of story Mark Twain's Huck Finn might have told if he'd been a child of the Sixties. The resulting comic narrative breaks all the known rules of coming of age stories, and then goes on to break a few more. MAVO’s engaging outlook and subversive storytelling style combine to create a truly unique literary experience.< Less
