Honeymoon with My Brother Book Excerpt:

This is the true story of Franz Wisner, a man who thought he had it all- a high profile career and the fiancée of his dreams- when suddenly, his life turned upside down. Just days before they were to be married, his fiancée called off the wedding. Luckily, his large support network of family and friends wouldn't let him succumb to his misery. They decided Franz should have a wedding and a honeymoon anyway- there just wouldn't be a bride at the ceremony, and Franz' travel companion would be his brother, Kurt. During the "honeymoon," Franz reconnected with his brother and began to look at his life with newfound perspective. The brothers decided to leave their old lives behind them. They quit their jobs, sold all their possessions, and traveled around the world, visiting fifty-three countries for the next two years. In Honeymoon With My Brother, Franz recounts this remarkable journey, during which he turned his heartbreak into an opportunity to learn about himself, the world, and the brother he hardly knew.

M C I Am My Brother s Keeper Book Excerpt:

Former army sharpshooter Jake Coleman has nothing more in mind than a little relief from a hot, Texas-summer night when he jumps on his bike and heads to a biker bar in search of a cold beer. But when he encounters a three-against-one fight right outside the bar door, he steps in to improve the odds for an outnumbered stranger. What Jake doesn’t know is that the man he’s just helped is none other than Diego Santiago, vice-president of the Houston based, Los Patrons Motorcycle Club. An impressed and grateful Santiago befriends Jake and mentors him as he works to meet the requirements of a prospective member of Los Patrons.

As he embarks on the life of a Los Patrons brother, Jake falls in love with an intoxicating woman, and rapidly rises up the club’s ranks, discovering something chilling about himself…that no act is too grim or violent for him to perform, if it’s in service of those he has come to call his brothers. God Forgives - Patrons Repay Written with a knife-edge authenticity, M.C. – I Am My Brother’s Keeper catapults readers into the dark and dangerous netherworld of a big city motorcycle club.

More than 40 years ago I headed south with a guy I met on Liverpool Street station in London. Enfield to Athens on a tandem. They said it couldn't be done.

My Brother's Bicycle is a story of (limited) endurance, survival (over boredom) and indomitable human spirit.

Fug You Book Excerpt:

Fug You is Ed Sanders's unapologetic and often hilarious account of eight key years of "total assault on the culture," to quote his novelist friend William S. Burroughs. Fug You traces the flowering years of New York's downtown bohemia in the sixties, starting with the marketing problems presented by publishing Fuck You / A Magazine of the Arts, as it faced the aboveground's scrutiny, and leading to Sanders's arrest after a raid on his Peace Eye Bookstore. The memoir also traces the career of the Fugs -- formed in 1964 by Sanders and his neighbor, the legendary Tuli Kupferberg (called "the world's oldest living hippie" by Allen Ginsberg) -- as Sanders strives to find a home for this famous postmodern, innovative anarcho-folk-rock band in the world of record labels.

Dance Hall Days Book Excerpt:

The rise of commercialized leisure coincided with the arrival of millions of immigrants to America's cities. Conflict was inevitable as older generations attempted to preserve their traditions, values, and ethnic identities, while the young sought out the cheap amusements and sexual freedom which the urban landscape offered. At immigrant picnics, social clubs, and urban dance halls, Randy McBee discovers distinct and highly contested gender lines, proving that the battle between the ages was also one between the sexes. Free from their parents and their strict rules governing sexual conduct, working women took advantage of their time in dance halls to challenge conventional gender norms. They routinely passed certain men over for dances, refused escorts home, and embraced the sensual and physical side of dance to further accentuate their superior skills and ability on the dance floor. Most men felt threatened by women's displays of empowerment and took steps to thwart the changes taking place. Accustomed to street corners, poolrooms, saloons, and other all-male get-togethers, working men tried to transform the dance hall into something that resembled these familiar hangouts. McBee also finds that men frequently abandoned the commercial dance hall for their own clubs, set up in the basements of tenement flats. In these hangouts, working men established rules governing intimacy and leisure that allowed them to regulate the behavior of the women who attended club events. The collective manner in which they behaved not only affected the organization of commercial leisure but also men and women's struggles with and against one another to define the meaning of leisure, sexuality, intimacy, and even masculinity.

Dancing with Camels Book Excerpt:

It would be such a waste of time if we read the book and do not move on to a next level of followship. The journey of faith should become a cycle of faith with new levels of commitment that will be required as we start higher and deeper levels of the process time and again. Moving from discipleship to apostleship on the journey of faith will require that we sit down and count the cost once again, but this time on a higher level. Let us consider the words of A. J. Nock: The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests. So let us digest, act, and do.
