Glitter Up the Dark Book Excerpt:

Why has music so often served as an accomplice to transcendent expressions of gender? Why did the query "is he musical?" become code, in the twentieth century, for "is he gay?" Why is music so inherently queer? For Sasha Geffen, the answers lie, in part, in music’s intrinsic quality of subliminal expression, which, through paradox and contradiction, allows rigid gender roles to fall away in a sensual and ambiguous exchange between performer and listener. Glitter Up the Dark traces the history of this gender fluidity in pop music from the early twentieth century to the present day. Starting with early blues and the Beatles and continuing with performers such as David Bowie, Prince, Missy Elliot, and Frank Ocean, Geffen explores how artists have used music, fashion, language, and technology to break out of the confines mandated by gender essentialism and establish the voice as the primary expression of gender transgression. From glam rock and punk to disco, techno, and hip-hop, music helped set the stage for today’s conversations about trans rights and recognition of nonbinary and third-gender identities. Glitter Up the Dark takes a long look back at the path that led here.

Darkness Reigns Book Excerpt:

Gregor Nephal, a repentant fallen angel forgiven of his terrible crime, must complete one final task before he can be brought back to be with God. He must destroy Taitanoth, the last angel/human hybrid before this giant can complete the task of using an ancient artifact to open a doorway to hell. Taitanoth declares war on the city of Dallas and releases his most powerful psychic weapon, a wave of pure rage that is capable of destroying the minds of humans, turning them into rabid rioters and soulless zombies, attacking anyone they can get their hands on. Ray, Isao, and Sam, three men chosen by God as warriors to stand with Gregor, travel to Dallas to join the angel and confront their destiny. Through the millennia, Gregor has lost most of his great powers while Taitanoth remains as dangerous as ever. The small group must depend on each other for survival as they fight their way through throngs of murderous mobs and dark, other-worldly creatures before the Nephilim can complete a ritual that will release Satan from hell.

Calvin Wheeler is an American dreamer in a triple threat cage match with his two biggest adversaries-everyday life and himself. His marriage to the woman he believed to be his soul mate is rapidly evaporating before his eyes. The book he’s been working on for over a decade is slipping through his fingers as he struggles to complete it.

A personal, powerful and shocking testimony of life as a heroin addict in Brooklyn in the 1970s and ‘80s. In this gritty, soul-bearing and honest account, Ronn Costabile takes you into a world of addiction and despair. Ronn tells his story with gripping detail and emotion-jerking reality. There is hope, however, for everyone who believes.

Six years later he became intake coordinator and soon afterwards director of the Brooklyn Men’s program.

Tears For My Mother Book Excerpt:

“A heart-bruising dive into the terror of Alzheimer’s. This memoir-like tale told through the eyes of a care-giving daughter and the clouded mind of her declining mother had me racing to the final page. Rashbaum cleverly weaves these two views of this harrowing journey through inner thoughts and honest dialogue to paint an un-Norman Rockwell portrait of one family’s struggle with this horrible disease.” -Jay Gilbertson, author of Moon Over Madeline Island and Back to Madeline Island “Penning from the internal landscape of another is difficult enough, but doing so from the mind of a mentally tormented soul, with all the nuances of such complexity, is beyond comprehension. This is what Burt Rashbaum has accomplished in his brilliant portrayal of his mother as she experiences the devastation of Alzheimer’s. Not to sound too otherworldly about this, I do believe she must have guided Burt from beyond for the portrayal to have been so heartbreakingly accurate. A must read for all!” -Peggy Warren, author of Very Much a Woman’s Book and Gathering Peace

My Stupid Sad Pathetic Life Book Excerpt:

This novel is loosely based on my real life but not 100% entirely. This is a book that I am hoping will make readers more confident about themselves and their own lives. The novel focuses on mental illness, drug addiction, suicide, and love. There is a lot of explicit language used throughout most of the novel as well as focusing on the topic of mental illness, loss of loved ones and the genuine struggle of living life as a human on planet Earth. This novel represents various struggles that I and other people deal with throughout day to day life. I’m hoping this book will be able to help those who struggle with mental illness, drug addiction, and loss of loved ones via suicide as well as religious confusion. It’s a dark read, but it has a fairly light, and happy ending.

Book Reports Book Excerpt:

In this generous collection of book reviews and literary essays, legendary Village Voice rock critic Robert Christgau showcases the passion that made him a critic—his love for the written word. Many selections address music, from blackface minstrelsy to punk and hip-hop, artists from Lead Belly to Patti Smith, and fellow critics from Ellen Willis and Lester Bangs to Nelson George and Jessica Hopper. But Book Reports also teases out the popular in the Bible and 1984 as well as pornography and science fiction, and analyzes at length the cultural theory of Raymond Williams, the detective novels of Walter Mosley, the history of bohemia, and the 2008 financial crisis. It establishes Christgau as not just the Dean of American Rock Critics, but one of America's most insightful cultural critics as well.

Sai Bhagvatham Book Excerpt:

Sai Bhagvatham is a story of man’s engagement with God. The book uses over a thousand personal spiritual experiences and anecdotes that record inner experiences of persons wrestling with their religious circumstances. The experiences, drawn from all religious traditions, are evocative of how the divine engages with man. The experiences with Sri Sathya Sai Baba are juxtaposed with the narratives of spiritual experiences recorded by seekers over the millennia. The experiences with Sai are uncannily similar to the universal experiences of man with God; they mirror man’s journey to the Divine. The spiritual journey with Sai is tangible, poignant, accessible, and more intense than recorded before. Sai is relentless in the pursuit of his purpose, transformation of man, however much man falters, vacillates, resists, struggles, or even tries to escape. Sai demonstrates that in the relationship of man with the Divine, God is actively engaged with man; he is not an impassive bystander. The engagement of man with God is planned and activated by God, it progresses based upon the responses of man, and the engagement stimulates the transformation of man. Man, in his engagement with God, asks the ‘why’ questions, seeking to comprehend and explain God. He is also reflective, attempting to understand himself, and realize who he really is. The diverse and innumerable first person incidents with Sri Sathya Sai Baba create a vivid characterization of the persona of Sai, hence the use of Bhagvatham in the title.
