Kiss My Arse The Story of the Pogues Book Excerpt:

The story of The Pogues has been as riotous as their most rabble-rousing songs. From the streets of 80s London the Celtic Punks unleashed their hellraising 20-year career and in the process became legends; mythic troubadours whose popularity endures. This Omnibus Enhanced edition of Kiss My Arse has been revamped with an interactive digital timeline which paints the journey of The Pogues with videos and images of live performances, interviews, memorabilia and more. Also included is an integrated Spotify playlist containing the band’s greatest performances. To tell their story author Carol Clerk has interviewed Shane MacGowan, Spider Stacy, Jem Finer, Andrew Ranken, James Fearnley, Cait O'Riordan, and a clutch of associates, friends and fans. All paint a picture of a fiercely loyal group of musicians, their arguments and drunken spats, their love affairs, the drugs, the hirings and the firings, the marriages and deaths… but, above all, the music. This is their story, bared for all.

Pogue s War Book Excerpt:

" With a foreword by Stephen Ambrose and a preface by Franklin D. Anderson Forrest Pogue (1912-1996) was undoubtedly one of the greatest World War II combat historians. Born and educated in Kentucky, he is perhaps best known for his definitive four-volume biography of General George C. Marshall. But, as Pogue's War makes clear, he was also a pioneer in the development of oral history in the twentieth century, as well as an impressive interviewer with an ability to relate to people at all levels, from the private in the trenches to the general carrying four stars. Pogue's War is drawn from Forrest Pogue's handwritten pocket notebooks, carried with him throughout the war, long regarded as unreadable because of his often atrocious handwriting. Pogue himself began expanding the diaries a few short years after the war, with the intent of eventual publication. At last this work is being published. Supplemented with carefully deciphered and transcribed selections from his diaries, the heart of the book is straight from the field. Much of the material has never before seen print. From D-Day to VE-Day, Pogue experienced and documented combat on the front lines, describing action on Omaha Beach, in the Huertgen Forest, and on other infamous fields of conflict. He not only graphically -- yet also often poetically­­ -- recounts the extreme circumstances of battle, but he also notes his fellow soldiers' innermost thoughts, feelings, opinions, and attitudes about the cruelty of war. As a trained historian, Pogue describes how he went about his work and how the Army's history program functioned in the European Theater of Operations. His entries from his time at the history headquarters in Paris show the city in the early days after the liberation in a unique light. Pogue's War has an immediacy that much official history lacks, and is a remarkable addition to any World War II bookshelf. Franklin D. Anderson, Forrest Pogue's nephew by marriage, is a longtime educator. He lives in Princeton, Kentucky.

Outrageous Fortune Book Excerpt:

Did Ireland produce a more radical and ambitious literature in the straitened circumstances of the first half of the twentieth century than it has managed to do since it began to ‘modernize’ and become more affluent from the 1960s onwards? Has Irish modernism ceded place to a prevailing naturalism that seems gritty and tough-minded, but that is aesthetically conservative and politically self-thwarted? Does the fixation with ‘de Valera’s Ireland’ in recent narrative represent a necessary settling of accounts with a dark, abusive history or is it indicative of a worrying inability on the part of Irish artists and intellectuals to respond to the very different predicaments of the post-Cold War world? These are some of the questions addressed in Outrageous Fortune. Scanning literature, theatre, film and music, Joe Cleary probes the connections between capital, culture and criticism in modern Ireland. He includes readings of James Joyce and the Irish modernists, the naturalists Patrick Kavanagh, John McGahern and Edna O’Brien, and comments too on what he terms the ‘neo-naturalism’ of Marina Carr, Patrick McCabe and Martin McDonagh. He concludes with a provocative analysis of the cultural achievement of the Pogues.

1951 Book Excerpt:

David D. Ferman describes the fall of 1951 when a sweet young coed tricked him into signing his Letter Of Intent with a small, remote junior college; a football coach who some thought could not pour urine out of a boot if the instructions were plainly printed on the heel, but he just kept winning anyway; and a quaint little college town where a guy could easily get an enviable reputation by doing very little, and a young lady could be ruined for life for doing a whole lot less. While growing up in southern Kansas, Dave witnessed fi rst-hand the Great Depression that wiped out fortunes across the United States, and the Dust Bowl that devastated hundreds of thousands of once fertile farms, both in the 1930s. He remembers the hardships and sacrifi ces of World War II, celebrating the birth of Rock n Roll, and muddling through the fi rst spasms of the Sexual Revolution. Along the way, Dave completed 12 years of strict parochial school education on the low-rent side of Wichita where only one in ten families owned a car, and very few teenagers went to college. Family motivated, Dave left home for college on a football scholarship to earn his teaching degrees in English and science. Intrigued by semantics classes, he studied the regional dialects commonly spoken by many young student-athletes in the early 1950s. His goal: to backtrack the language evolution that produced the vivid if somewhat nave imagery, life styles and culture of that far less complex time and place. Now Dave revisits the fall of 1951 with affectionate splashes of literary license. Numerous stories are blended together in this book, which is roughly 90 percent non-fiction and 10 percent creative memoir. To protect his once-imprudent friends who are now role models for families and others, Dave changed the names, locations, some descriptions and several time lines. Thats the least that he could do to disguise such good friends and supporters from back in 1951.

The Cross and the Sword Book Excerpt:

Lance Corporal Perry McMullin is a wannabe sniper prepared to help win the war in Vietnam. Navy corpsman John Henry Fox dreams of becoming a military chaplain. Now just out of medical training, he is unsure of his newly imposed warrior status. As fate brings a life saver and a life taker together, they soon become friendsbut not without conflict. McMullin is on the military fast track. Focused on being a career marine, he is promoted to sergeant and trained as a sniper. Fox, never a fan of war, decides to return to college, causing the two unlikely friends to part. After instructing at MCB Quantico and working stateside intelligence, McMullin requests to return to Vietnam. Ensign John Fox has also returned to the battlefield, but this time as a navy chaplain. As a cross and sword reunite during special covert operations and top secret missions, neither has any idea that a parting of ways is in store once again. In this compelling, action-packed military tale, two men attempting to survive the ravages of war somehow manage to salvage a friendship and, in the process, discover a lasting gift that neither could have ever imagined.

Honor Dishonored Book Excerpt:

Honor Dishonored is the true story of a platoon of young American Marines, serving honorably in a war that unfairly became synonymous with brutality and dishonor. While returning veterans of other military engagements were touted as heroes and welcomed home with open arms, men returning from Vietnam were spit upon, cursed, and accused of countless atrocities. Emotionally and physically scared by their tours of duty, surviving in the worst possible conditions and against impossible odds, these men (mostly barely out of their teens) were treated as pariahs upon their return home-home to the country that had sent them overseas in the first place, often against their will. War is savage by nature, and while there are exceptions to every rule, the men who fought in Vietnam were brave, noble, and self-sacrificing. However, the warrior, the fighting men on the “front lines,” were under-supported by the military machine. We've all seen the movies, heard the horror stories, and debated whether or not the American Military should or should not have been over there in the first place. But what we haven't been able to see-to understand- is what it was really like over there, without the glorification (and gore-ification) of Hollywood or the rampant propaganda that came from both sides of the debate. Told that they should be ashamed of their participation, those who were lucky enough to survive to tell the tale quickly realized that no one wanted to listen. But maybe the time has come. This is their story.
