A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street


$26.95


The only remaining female in the George Nash family, Ociee chooses to view herself as more brother than sister. Her favorite outfit is soft, worn dungarees and her brother Ben’s old shirt that Mama made. Ociee’s hair is a wispy web of curls and, dreadfully, it usually falls in her face when her self-tied ribbons slide down her back. Her gray eyes sparkle as she delights in jumping on moving boxcars and chasing strangers who dare to wander upon her Mississippi farm. This same little tomboy also goes to great pains to cook and clean and make a home for her beloved Papa and brothers Fred and Ben. She tries valiantly to fill the hole her Mama’s death has left in the family. She fingers Mama’s locket and hopes the touch of it will make things better. Ociee endears herself to all while she struggles through the trauma of her mother’s funeral to finally celebrate her young life. Her eyes learn to see beyond stereotypes and traditional viewpoints as she looks into the hearts of people and finds only what is strong and joyful within them. Ociee giggles as only an innocent child can giggle; yet her youthful spirit carries what would seem to be the wisdom of an older soul. Ociee triumphs over the sadness, fear, and anxiety of the painful occurrences of her early life. In doing just that, she will bloom in a new garden and sow seeds of love in the lives of those who come to know her in a new home on Charlotte Street.

A Place We Knew Well


A Place We Knew Well


$8.49


?Susan Carol McCarthy blends fact, memory, imagination and truth with admirable grace,? saidThe Washington Post of the author?s critically acclaimed debut novel, Lay That Trumpet in Our Hands. Now McCarthy returns with another enthralling story of a family?their longings, their fears, and their secrets?swept up in the chaos at the height of the Cold War. Late October, 1962. Wes Avery, a one-time Air Force tail-gunner, is living his version of the American Dream as loving husband to Sarah, doting father to seventeen-year-old Charlotte, and owner of a successful Texaco station along central Florida?s busiest highway. But after President Kennedy announces that the Soviets have nuclear missiles in Cuba, Army convoys clog the highways and the sky fills with fighter planes. Within days, Wes?s carefully constructed life begins to unravel. Sarah, nervous and watchful, spends more and more time in the family?s bomb shelter, slipping away into childhood memories and the dreams she once held for the future. Charlotte is wary but caught up in the excitement of high school?her nomination to homecoming court, the upcoming dance, and the thrill of first love. Wes, remembering his wartime experience, tries to keep his family?s days as normal as possible, hoping to restore a sense of calm. But as the panic over the Missile Crisis rises, a long-buried secret threatens to push the Averys over the edge. With heartbreaking clarity and compassion, Susan Carol McCarthy captures the shock and innocence, anxiety and fear, in those thirteen historic days, and brings vividly to life one ordinary family trying to hold center while the world around them falls apart. Advance praise for A Place We Knew Well? Gripping. Even as those tense days of the Cuban Missile Crisis are depicted in unwavering detail and with inexorable dread, the intimate moments between human beings on the verge o

All I Do Is Lie [Slipcase]

Audio Mixers: Sean Watkins; Sheldon Gomberg. Recording information: Acoustic Cafe Studio, Ann Arbor, MI (06/2012/07/2013); Horseshack, Davenport, IA (06/2012/07/2013); Neptune A, Encinitas, CA (06/2012/07/2013); The Carriage House, Los Angeles, CA (06/2012/07/2013); The Webster House, Los Angeles, CA (06/2012/07/2013). Photographer: Brantley Gutierrez. With a second Fiction Family project and a long-awaited Nickel Creek reunion album in the not so distant rearview mirror (Fiction Family Reunion arrived in 2013 and A Dotted Line dropped early the following year), Sean Watkins’ could have been forgiven had he not wanted to drop a new solo album into the hopper, but 2014’s All I Do Is Lie is a quiet and unobtrusive affair that feels more like a spring cleaning than a main event. Comprised of ten songs that trade in the relatively meaty folk-rock of 2006’s Blinders On for a more measured, confessional, yet reliably quirky singer/songwriter feel that falls more in line with Nickel Creek bandmate Chris Thile’s 2011 outing Sleep with One Eye Open, All I Do Is Lie is made up of mostly simple, yet smartly arranged country folk-pop songs. Like Thile, Watkins possesses a clear, vibrato-less tenor and is an incredibly gifted player who can bend genres to his will with the effortless gait of a former child prodigy, and his guitar work on songs like the lovely Wave as We Run, the fluttery title cut, and the languid instrumental Meredith, is as fluid as it is meticulous, but he also shares Thile’s penchant for earnest self-reflection and existential dread, though the latter is buffered by an obvious strength of faith, which he applies tastefully on songs like Since the Day I Was Born and The God You Serve. Elsewhere, the ramshackle Keep Your Promises suggests that Watkins still wants to keep a foot on the barstool, and the laid-back, Harvest-era Neil Young cadence of This Will End in Tears ventures into easy, back road Americana, but All I Do Is Lie is primarily a wist

Atomic [Slipcase] *


Atomic [Slipcase] *


$11


Audio Mixer: Tony Doogan. Recording information: Castle of Doom Studios, Glasgow. In their own ways, Zidane and Les Revenants are some of Mogwai’s finest work, so it makes sense that Atomic – an album based on their music for the BBC 4 documentary Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise and their first release after the departure of John Cummings – follows suit. The band’s tenth album recalls not only Zidane and Les Revenants but the fearsome sweep of Jhann Jhannsson’s Fordlandia, another unflinching look at humankind’s capacity to discover and create equally constructive and destructive technology. Even separated from the documentary’s imagery, Atomic contains the wonder and horror of breakthroughs like x-rays and MRI scans as well as nuclear disasters like Chernobyl and Fukushima. Ether begins the album with sparkling arpeggios and a trumpet that sounds like the dawning of a new age, while Fat Man (named for the bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki) closes it with ominously echoing piano. SCRAM falls somewhere in between, its loping beat and strobing melody recalling Boards of Canada at their most enigmatically beautiful. There’s a weighty undercurrent to almost all of Atomic’s songs, whether in their deliberate paces or substantial low ends, that reflects the album’s somber origins. The crushing drums on Pripyat, which was inspired by the town devastated by the Chernobyl accident, convey a primal sense of awe, while the fearsome majesty of Bitterness Centrifuge nods to the band’s metal leanings. Indeed, the ways Mogwai borrow from their other career highlights without obviously recycling are impressive: the hushed, bittersweet warmth of Are You a Dancer? calls to mind their early singles, while pulsing tracks like U-235 and Little Boy sound like they could have been on Rave Tapes. They’re also relatively restrained with their signature climaxes, only unleashing one on the towering Tzar. Ambitious and masterful, Atomic is another peak in Mogwai

Borax, 30 C


Borax, 30 C


$5.14


Boiron – Borax 30 C – 80 Pellets Borax is the biborate of soda. As a medicine, it won its first laurels in the nursery, where it has long been used in the treatment of sore nipples and children’s sore mouth. Like all popular remedies, it has been greatly abused. Homeopathy has rescued it from the nursery and now offers it to the profession as a medicine of great value, telling when it may and when it may not be used. Underlying this sore mouth, which seems to be the keynote for the use of Borax, is a system or constitution which will permit of the sore mouth, that is, an illy-nourished system. Thus the infant becomes pale or of an earthy hue, its flesh grows soft and flabby; it cries a great deal when it nurses, screams out during sleep and awakens clinging to its mother as if frightened by a dream. The child is excessively nervous, so much so, that the slightest noise, the mere rustling of paper, or a distant heavy noise, will arouse and frighten it. This nervous excitability qualifies the pains. For instance, in the earache, you will find that each paroxysm of pain causes the child to start nervously. This earache is accompanied by soreness, swelling and heat of the ear, just as you find in BELLADONNA, PULSATILLA and CHAMOMILLA. There is a mucous or muco-purulent otorrhoea. Borax is distinguished from these similar remedies by this character of the nervousness, this starting with the pain or with slight noises, by the paleness of the face and above all by another well-proved symptom, the child dreads a downward motion. Thus if the little one is soundly asleep in its mother’s arms and she makes the attempt to lay it down in its crib, it gives a start and awakens. If she attempts to carry it down stairs, it will cling to her as if afraid of falling. This must not be confounded with the excitability of other medicines as Chamomilla and Belladonna. It is not the motion that awakens the child. The child will not awaken if it is moved without any downward motion.

The spellbinding third novel of The Masks of Aygrima is set in a land where people are forced to wear spell-imbued Masks that reveal any traitorous thoughts they have about their ruler, the Autarch. Mara Holdfast is a young woman gifted with the ability to see and use all the colors of magic.

After a devastating battle that takes a dreadful toll on both the rebel unMasked Army and the forces of Prince Chell, their ally from across the sea, Mara and her fellow survivors have no one to turn to for help but the Lady of Pain and Fire.

A capstone to an unforgettable careerOver the past half century, the great shape-shifting poet C.K. Williams took upon himself the poet?s task: to record with candor and ardor? the burden of being alive. In Falling Ill, his final volume of poems, he brings this task to its conclusion, bearing witness to a restless mind?s encounter with the brute fact of the body?s decay, the spirit?s erasure. Written with unsparing lyricism and relentless discursive logic, these brave poems face unflinchingly? the dreadful edge of a precipice? where a futureless future stares back. Urgent, unpunctuated, headlong, vertiginous, they race against time to trace the sinuous, startling twists and turns of consciousness. All is coming apart, taken away, except the brilliant art to describe it as the end is coming. All along is the reassurance of love?s close presence. Here are no easy resolutions, false consolations. Like unanswered prayers, they are poems of deep interrogation?a dialogue between the agonized? I? in its harrowing here-and-nowness and the elusive? you? of the beloved who flickers achingly just out of reach. Williams?s Falling Ill takes its place among the enduring works of literature about death and departure.
